We all like freebies. The internet is a goldmine of absolutely free stuff, if you know where to look. Finding a genuinely useful freebies website is not easy and it took me many a month to successfully identify websites which genuinely give away freebies. Without further ado, I present to you the three best freebies websites.

1. Ozbargain - I am an ardent fan of this website. I stumbled upon this wonderful website while searching for online freebies. Romance flourished when I explored this well-established and neatly categorised website. Amongst other useful categories this website has a section solely dedicated to freebies. Updated regularly, the Freebie section is a treasure trove of an extensive array of free stuff given away by various brands and companies as part of promotions or in a bid to attract new customers. You will be surprised by what you will discover time and again.

Recent giveaways include movie tickets, Schick razors, makeup samples, makeover sessions, coffee, tea, fancy coffee mugs, sim cards, DVDs. Ozbargain has a massive range of followers, affectionately known as the Ozbargainers, contributing to the regular updates of available freebies in town. Further, this site has a highly useful 'deals' section which caters to the needs of people looking for daily deals. Ranging from deals on computers to makeup, mobile phones to game consoles this site is the ultimate destination for all kinds of deals available both online and offline. Ozbargain also has a forum section which is the location for discussing deals, freebies and upcoming sales. Check out this website and start scoring freebies today!

2. Buckscoop - Buckscoop is another good website for securing freebies. Head to their website and check out their Freebie section. This section is usually replete with great freebies and giveaways. Somewhat obscure, Buckscoop actually offers some cool free stuff from time to time. Although not as regularly updated like Ozbargain, the Buckscoop site can prove to be an absolute steal if you keep an eye on it on a daily basis. Buckscoop also features daily deals, useful vouchers and links to various online competitions. Have a look and you may be amazed by what you find!

3. Gumtree - Gumtree may not need much introduction per se. Amongst the myriads of categories Gumtree features, there is a highly useful section on freebies. The Freebie section is an invaluable resource for scoring freebies of all types and kinds. People are giving away books, pets, furnitures and household goods. You could also take advantage of the Swap/Trade section to benefit from trading away your unwanted goods for some useful, essential goods. Remember your trash can actually be someone else's treasure! If you feel you do not have enough time to troll through all the freebies everyday, you can choose to set up daily alerts so Gumtree will inform you when new freebies become available.

There are other good freebies websites out there. But after a profound and in-depth research I have come to the conclusion that most other freebies websites often mirror the freebies already advertised in the above websites. So get into your 'I want freebies' mood and browse the above websites for some great free stuff. Happy searching!

Oh and also, if you go to places like eBay, Amazon and Gumtree etc, you can always find freebies. Just search for free or sample in theor search terms.
