GoFreebies.com is a website which says that it can help people find places online that are currently offering legitimate offers for “freebies,” items which retailers are currently giving away for free.
According to their website, their online directory of freebies is maintained and expanded through their community of online visitors. Their visitors submit links to their site for freebie offers that they know of or that have recently been announced.
Once these links are posted to their site, GoFreebies.com begins the legwork necessary to verify whether or not the link is accurately directing users to legit freebie offers. If they determine that this isn’t the case, they will remove the link.
If the research they do shows that this link does direct users to an actual freebie offer, than that link will be successfully posted to their directory. Once the link is live on their website, their user community keeps the link updated as legit or not.
A freebie link that is legit and results in users receiving free items will receive positive votes from the user community. Links which have been maintained on the website for longer periods of time and have many positive votes are the most reliable freebie offers.
A freebie link that has problems or issues with the offering can be flagged by users. Freebies and advertisements that receive too many "bad flags" are taken down automatically. The flagging method is an additional security measure just in case GoFreebies.com accidentally lets a bad link onto their directory.
The site also offers a page of Free Offers, which are different from “freebies.” These are offers which the visitor can use to acquire some free items if they complete a task for a company. Free Offers are complicated, and some people believe that they are really a ripoff, because if you do not follow their instructions to the exact letter, you often end up paying more money than you earn.

BEWARE GOFREEBIES ARE SCAMMERS
Signed up several months ago with promises of completely free samples by mail as well as free gift cards from popular retailers such as Walmart. Have completed hundreds of surveys, questionnaires, etc.. and spent countless hours signing up, following through, etc.. and have YET to receive even ONE of the EARNED, PROMISED. QUALIFIED, samples or gift cards. Within a couple of weeks of signing up I started getting phone calls from random numbers trying to sell me things, trying to get personal info, trying to scam me. Every time I block a number, a similar number with only 1-2 different digits calls. Sometimes over 100 phone calls a day. Started getting 500+ emails a day from random email addresses disguising themselves as popular retailers like Walmart, Victoria's Secret, etc.. Even though I never signed up or subscribed to these companies I click on "unsubscribe" only to have them keep sending emails. To date, I should have received approx 3000+ free samples, 4 Walmart gift cards for $500.00 each, 2 Target gift cards for $100.00 each, 7 Victoria's Secret gift cards for $100.00 each, & at least 25 Amazon gift cards for $25.00 each, yet I have received absolutely nothing except emails & phone calls from other companies that they have apparently sold my information to that relentlessly try to scam me further. I have wasted countless hours doing surveys, making purchases, etc.. to complete requirements for gift cards & freebies & I feel that it is only fair that I receive what I was promised or be compensated for my time that I wasted under false pretense, deception, and lies!
STAY AWAY!!! THEY ARE EVIL!!!
I went for an ecig free sample, and three months later I have charges for nearly 200.00 for egigs, PLUS 450.00 in magazines. This is a nightmare and I am now bogged down in paperwork trying to get my money refunded to credit card PLUS gjust started getting paper bills for some other service I don't recognize.
They make it sound simple and harmless, but it could not be further from the truth. GO FREEBIES IS EVIL!
Not to mention my mailbox is flooded with GO FREEBIES SPAM!!
STAY INFORM. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
