Websites about "Deals for Free"!!

 

 

I have been writing post about useful web sites as reported by PC World.  I am veering a little in that the websites I am presenting on this post did not come from the magazine; I saw most of these on a news show.  These are websites about "Deals for Free". 

www.avvo.com This is a website for free legal advice.  They have legal guides where you can browse information about everyday legal issues.  The site also has a question and answer section where you can ask questions and get free personal advice from lawyers.  The last section includes a place to search for a lawyer.

http://www.google.com/goog411/index.html  Google now has a 411 business directory. The number is 1-800-goog411.  You might want to put this in your cell phone or your home phone speed dial.  When you dial a voice will ask you to say the business city and state.  You then say the business you want and he says "Connecting" and the business answers the phone.

www.free411.com This is a free directory service at 1-800-free411, although you do have to listen to the advertisement but hey it beats paying for directory assistance every time you want a phone number.

http://www.kidsmealdeals.com In this site you put in your zip code and it tells you where kids can eat for free or give you deals for kid's meals.

http://www.boostmobil.comThis is a site to help you save on mobile phone services.  You can search for prepaid cell phones, prepaid phone cards, mobile phones, online payments and free ringtones.

https://www.points.com  This is a place to track balances and manage your reward programs all in one place.

http://www.swapstyle.com   Swapstyle is an online fashion swap party where you can swap clothes, accessories, cosmetics, shoes and more with people from all around the world at any time, day or night. And it's Free!  You register for a site and then can swap to your heart's content. The only money you are out is the postage.

This is my sixth in the series of useful websites.  If you would like to visit the other five you will find them at:

Websites about "Finding Local Stuff"!!

Websites about "Surviving the recession!"

Websites about "Planning a vacation"!!

Websites about "Buying, Selling and Renting Stuff"!!

Websites about "Learning Stuff"!!

Hi Marche, Isn't FREE wonderful, especially with the economy the way it is right now?

You want to know about free? I actually helped my wife color her hair today when I found out it is one hundred bucks at the hair stylists' ! 

Marchel

It is amazing though how much free info is out there!

Great info.  I'm programming the 411Google into my wifes phone.  I HATE paying for directory assistance.

Marchel:  While reading this post... I noticed the outlined box you placed just to the right of this post... and... it worked !  I clicked on your RealtyeZine link... and liked what I found... so I subscribed.  I liked it.  Could you tell me more about this... if you would be so kind.  Thanks for sharing... take care...

Marchel, Thanks so much for all of the great stuff, for free, Love your buttons and your post in general....Also, that was a great tip off when re-blogging to disable comments so that the original poster gets them....Very thoughtful of you to think of that, I will do that when re-blogging also. Any News regarding your son?  Hope I have not missed the post, I've been a little busy and absent on and off from A.R.

SHIRLEY, I was raised by depression era parents so have always been taught to look for a deal and you can't get better than FREE!

GARY WOLTAL, Thanks!!  I had not heard of most of these.  I have been using the free 411 for quite some time though.  I can listen to a short advertisement to save a buck.

TREY, Good for you!!  My parents are both ex-beauticians and my Mother had me giving her colors from just about the time I was able to.  My Dad gives her colors now. 

SIMON, I'm with you about those type of charges.  The Google one is good for businesses but you can also use the other one for personal phone numbers.  Now you do have to listen to a short message but hey it saves money.

KAREN ANNE, I buy that newsletter through a local service here.  I have loved it!!  At one point she was doing it for other places also.  I will have to check and see if she has one in your area.

JANE, The count down is going on.  It is 15 days until our son gets out of Iraq.  It will then take him 3 to 4 days to get back to Fort Hood.  As it gets closer they will let us know when the ceremony is going to take place.

TERRY, It is amazing the free services that are provided on the web.

GARY WHITE, Thanks!  You can't beat FREE!!

Marchel, These are great suggestions.  Especially the Kids eating for free.  There are so many people that need help to keep food on the table.

Thanks.

Marchel - This has been a wonderful series.  I have found some of these sites useful and I am sure the consumers appreciate this.  I agree with Audrey, the kids eat fee will be a big hit especially now.

CYNTHIA, I hope your little one gets to eat for free.  You will have to let us know how it works.
