Is Go Freebies legit? Can you really get freebies there? Or is Go Freebies a scam?
Go Freebies: How It Works
Go Freebies is a site that lists various free products and product samples that you can get, from all types of companies. It’s a “freebies directory,” and anyone can submit a freebie to be listed on the site.
Many companies give out free samples in order to get people to try out their product or sign up for a mailing list. At Go Freebies, you can find a whole list of these free products and coupons you can get.
If you see a listing that is incorrect,inaccurateurate information, is expired, or doesn’t work, you can click red flag button and mark it as flagged. Listings that have too many flags will get pulled from the site.
If you sign up to Go Freebie’s daily newsletter, you will be entered to a daily raffle, with prizes like $10 gift cards.
Go Freebies is owned by Digital Branding LLC, which has an A+ rating with the BBB.

Are Go Freebie’s Listings Accurate?
One of the concerns people have about such sites is that their listings may not be accurate or may be outdated. What about Go Freebie’s listings? Are they accurate?
Well, first of all, I do like the fact that anyone can flag a listing as being inaccurate, which surely helps in keeping the listings on the site updated.
I also checked out some of the listings myself. One listing was for a free educational poster. The link took me to publications.usa.gov, where I was able to either download the poster as a PDF or order up to 50 of them in the mail for free. That looks pretty legit.
Another listing was for a free bag of coffee. The link took me to Amora Coffee, a site that offers monthly coffee deliveries. The offer was to get your first bag for free and pay only $1 for two-day shipping, after which (starting a month later) you will get billed once a month $12.95 for a bag of coffee plus $7.95 per shipment for handling and expedited delivery. I actually looked up Amora Coffee and saw that they have an A+ rating with the BBB.
So at least some of the listings are legit. However, I can’t guarantee that every listing will work. Also keep in mind that to get some of the product samples you will have to sign up for promotional materials, either by email or regular mail or both. Other free offers are just trials, and you will get billed if you don’t cancel your trial before the month is over.
So, Is Go Freebies Legit? Can It Really Be True?
Yes, Go Freebies is definitely legit. As I mentioned, they are owned by Digital Branding LLC, which has an A+ rating with the BBB.
However, I can’t guarantee that every listing will work and that no listing will be outdated. That doesn’t mean that Go Freebies is bad, it just means that you should exercise caution when trying out freebies. It also helps to have a separate email address for all the promotional material you will be receiving from different companies by signing up to get free samples.
Also be aware of the “make money” listings on Go Freebies, as some of them look a little shady. One of the listings that were there, Paid For Research, was actually reviewed recently on Can It Really Be True.
I like Go Freebies; it’s a great site to get some free products and discounts. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below!
