Cheabies…What and Where???

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 28, 2009

Cheabies are….“A hybrid of ‘cheap’ and ‘freebies’ referring to a freebie that has a small but often negligible cost (such as postage). While costing a small sum of money, cheabies can represent similar or greater value than a completely free freebie as it is often of higher quality.”

-Definition from

I am often reluctant to sign up for something “free” when you have to pay $1-$2 for shipping…BUT the product might be worth spending that $2!  I just discovered this new “cheabies” aspect of FreeStuff4Free, and love it because the deals they post are legit…like the business cards and the Gevalia mug and samples.

I just love this concept and find it quite clever!!!  Jump on over to FreeStuff4Free and see what else you discover!

in FS4F, while trying to sign up for the cheabie bakeware, I noticed that it was going to sign me up for a $29.95/mo thing I don’t (and won’t) want. I’d agree to pay a $1 shipping to try their silicon pan and see if I want to get more, but almost $30/mo isn’t in the budget. Ouch…

I have been using this site for a few weeks now and love it. There are a few that want you to pay so pay attention but 95% are really good. I signed up with a bunch of different ones and started receiving some in as little as 2 weeks, There are some great products and great ways to try new things..

Have you had any luck using a virtual credit card number for those types of transactions? Because I’m horrible about remembering to cancel!
