Everybody loves free stuff.

But not all free stuff is worth loving.

We’re always finding freebies — from email newsletter perks to free stuff on your birthday — but we decided it was time to round up the best of the best.

From coconut oil to diapers, here are 30 of our favorite freebies from all over the web.

1. Godiva Chocolate

Free Godiva chocolate — what could be better?

Oh, maybe the fact this offer isn’t a one-time deal. Once you sign up, you get free chocolate every month at participating locations.

2. Photo Prints

Want to frame some photos? Download the Shutterfly app and you’ll get free unlimited 4×6 and 4×4 photo prints.

3. Air Filters

Being a grownup is tough. There are all sorts of things you’re supposed to remember — like when to change your air filters.

FilterEasy removes the hassle by automatically delivering air filters every two months. With this link, you’ll save $20 off your first order, which is enough for one free filter (including delivery!).

4. Skin Moisturizer

Suffering from dry skin? Nivea is giving out free samples of its In-Shower Cocoa Butter Body Lotion.

5. Tampons

Kotex will send you a free sample pack of tampons. All you have to do is tell them where to send it and answer a few personal questions.

6. Free $10 Amazon Gift Card

Have you heard of MyPoints? They are a cash-back site that lets you earn rewards by shopping online and printing coupons. We use them all the time at our house, because it’s instant way to save on everything you buy (for example, it gives you up to 5% cash-back on purchases in some categories on Amazon).

But, enough about that, here’s how to get a free $10 Amazon gift card:

  1. Sign up for MyPoints here using your email or Facebook account (it’s free).
  2. Use the Mypoints portal the next time you need to shop online (it’s connected to thousands of stores including Walmart, Amazon, and Target).
  3. As long as you spend $10 at any of those stores, Mypoints will reward you with 1,750 bonus which you can redeem for a free $10 Amazon gift card.

7. Free $39 in Amazon Gift Cards

Yeah, that’s not a typo. If you’re a regular Amazon shopper, you can earn money each month contributing to research to help companies understand what people are buying online.

Download and connect Shoptracker to your Amazon account. The company will instantly send you a free $3 Visa gift card, plus another $3 for every month you keep it installed.

8. Kind Granola Bar

This is #kindawesome.

This free Kind granola bar isn’t necessarily a freebie for you, but a gift you give to someone else for being kind.

Get it? You’re doing something kind for someone who did something kind — paying it forward. Just go to Kind’s site and choose how you want a gift card delivered to a friend, co-worker or acquaintance and you’re done.

9. Emergen-C Vitamin Drink Mix

Getting sick is the worst. The next time you feel a case of the sniffles coming on, you might want to blast your system with vitamin C to try and stay healthy.

One of my favorite ways? Downing a glass of Emergen-C vitamin supplement drink mix with water — and today, you can try two free samples!

10. Laundry Detergent

Most freebies are tiny.

But Generation Good generously gives a full-size sample of its natural laundry detergent when you sign up for its online community.

11. Free Credit Score

No, really. Hear me out. If you’ve ever tried to find out your credit score, you know that most services make you sign up for a trial or charge you an outrageous amount of money. I mean, it’s your credit score! And they have the nerve to charge you.

But, Credit Sesame will give it to you for free. And it takes about 90 seconds.

I actually found an error on mine. Once I had it corrected, my score shot up 50 points!

12. Gillette Razor

Get (razor) burned by another brand? Gillette wants to hear your story.

On Gillette’s website, enter the other razor brand you tried and why you dropped it. Upload a photo or video of yourself showing off your awesome grooming skills, too.

Your reward? A free razor — and the chance to appear in a commercial!

13. Blue Bottle Coffee

Want to try a whole bag of some of the best coffee in the country — completely free?

You can get a 2-ounce trial of Blue Bottle’s famous beans for nothing at all.

It’s part of their monthly subscription service, so they’ll ask for your credit card info, but they’ll send you an email before they actually charge you and send you more coffee. Just make sure to cancel your subscription if you don’t want to keep getting their coffee.

But after you suck down that sweet freebie, you might actually want to stay subscribed to the service and have their beans delivered to your door every month.

14. Magazines

Love the luxury of reading a good magazine, but hate paying for them?

Us, too. Luckily we know four proven ways to get free magazines.

15. Playtex Samples

Playtex® Sport® has freebies available. Choose a free liner or pad sample.

16. Sephora Beauty Products

Oooh, Sephora.

Become a “Beauty Insider,” and you’ll have your choice of a free beauty kit from Fresh or Marc Jacobs on your birthday.

17. Cat Food

Why should humans have all the fun?

Treat your feline to some free cat food from Fancy Feast.

White Chicken Primavera Paté — sounds fancy indeed!

18. Philosophy Face Cream

Any other philosophy fans out there?

Right now, the much-revered beauty company is offering free samples of its oil-free oxygenating gel cream. This lightweight moisturizer helps your skin re-oxygenate and resist aging.

19. “Support the Troops” Sticker

Show your support for our military with this free “Support the Troops” sticker. You can choose from a sticker or four window clings.

20. Vitamins

You know you should take vitamins, but never do.

If you think it’d be easier if they came in mint-form, give these free vitamins from Centrum a try!

21. Family First Aid Kit

You can never be too prepared, especially if you’ve got little ones running around.

Order your free family first aid kit from Florida Hospital so you’ll be ready for any scrapes or scratches, should they occur (they will).

22. Cinnamon Tea

Mmm, how good does a steamy cup of cinnamon tea sound right now?

Karma Kisses will send you some of its free organic tea — just add hot water.

***Editor’s Note (9/14/16): Looks like Karma Kisses is currently out of samples. However, the site says if you sign up for its newsletter, you’ll get an alert when more are available.

23. Yoga Classes

Yogaglo offers a free 15-day trial of unlimited yoga and meditation classes.

The best part? You don’t have to go anywhere — no driving, parking or public appearances. 

24. Freezer Labels

Freezer cooking is a great way to eat healthy and save time and money.

But without proper labeling, those containers can quickly become confusing. These free freezer labels might just be the answer. 

25. Spray Deodorant

Have you ever tried spray deodorant?

After watching a promo video, you can request free dry spray antiperspirant from Unilever.

26. Omega-3 Oils

Whether you like fish or not, it’s widely accepted omega-3 fatty acids are good for you.

Grab some free omega-3 oils from Nordic Naturals by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the tiny “Free Sample” button in the lower right-hand corner.

27. Prenatal Drink Mix

Expecting?

Try this free prenatal drink mix, which also comes with a $5 coupon for your next purchase.

28. Brazilian Smooth Haircare

We don’t know if this free Brazilian smooth haircare kit from Garnier Fructis will make our hair look anything like Gisele’s — but it’s a risk we’re willing to take!

29. Awesome Hair

If you’re looking for even more free haircare products, you’re in luck.

L’Oreal Paris will give you a free sample, based on the specific type of hair you have. All you have to do is sign up for the company’s email offers on its website.

30. Butterfly Garden Starter Kit

We may or may not have saved the best for last.

You can get a free butterfly garden starter kit from the National Wildlife Federation.

All you have to do is upload a photo of yourself doing the American Sign Language sign for butterfly.  

Phew. That’s a lot of freebies. Guess it’s time to stop reading — and start clicking!

Your Turn: Did we miss any of your favorite freebies? Which ones?
