I think it’s safe to say that everyone likes free stuff, right? I did some research and found 100 of the best freebies as of February 2020.
I looked for freebies that had no strings attached, i.e. no purchase required in order to get your freebie. I also didn’t look for discounts, even though I do love a good discount. I just wanted to look for FREE things.
You can get these 100 best freebies in 2020 by signing up for the associated rewards program and/or downloading an app. You also may have to check that locations near you are participating in these rewards programs.
