As a first time Mom I’ve been researching everything I can about what products are best and what items HAVE to be on our registry. What was most difficult was reading reviews and trying to decipher what items would work well for us. With many registries, you’re offered a welcome package with samples of items to try. SO — Babies are expensive and I thought why not take advantage of all the possible Freebies I can?! So many of these items came with coupons so if we decided the product worked for us we’d be able to buy it in the full size with a slight discount.
SO- I’ve decided to put together a list of all the places to get free or extremely cheap items.
FIRST THINGS FIRST – REGISTRY FREEBIES
Amazon- This one was my favorite. There were lots of really cute items in here and its completely free. You just have to buy $10 worth of items from your registry. I added this baby book i was planning on buying anyway and I was able to redeem it after the book shipped. There was even a burts bees onesie in mine and a muslin swaddle blanket! I’m pretty sure the contents varies per box but its 100% worth it.
Target – They offer a bag full of goodies. We went over to the customer service desk after creating a registry on the kiosk and they handed a gift bag at the same time they handed the scan guns. The coupon book alone is amazing! 50% off one Starbucks drink? yes please!
Buy Buy Baby – We registered here also and we were given another gift bag as we finished and turned in our scan guns. more coupons and bottles and pacifiers! Lots of good items in this one too.
BabyList – This one isn’t totally free. You have to pay the shipping. BUT it’s still worth it in my opinion. It was $5 and there were lots more samples and coupons. Overall, the contents of the box was worth way more than the shipping cost.
NEXT – Non Registry Freebies
Walmart – I didn’t create a registry here but i did sign up for the baby box! This was my least favorite of them all but it still had some good stuff. I signed up when they were offering free shipping on the box otherwise its $5 to ship. It was okay and I’ll definitely use the products included but I’m not convinced it would be worth $5 for this box.
Motherhood Maternity – When you buy an item in store they give you a bag full of coupons.
Free Breastpump! – (with insurance)
Aeroflow Breast pumps – click here –was recommended to me by a friend and it was extremely simple to use. You simply fill out a form with your health insurance information and they provide you with a list of options a few days later. There were several options that were free to me and several options that were “Upgrades” that I could get by paying the additional amount not covered by insurance. I would highly recommend using them! i was able to get a Medela pump completely covered by my insurance!
This list is what I found to be the easiest to redeem. There are definitely others out there however, a lot of them require you to sign up for a subscription that you would have to cancel after you received your first free item. I didn’t include those because they are so hard to keep up with!
If you found that I’ve missed one definitely let me know below!
