Tweeting my way to Free Stuff

What am I....a Bird???? Why Tweet???

cute twitter icons





I held out for so long before I jumped on the Twitter Train.....

I'm way too lazy and busy to learn something new most days. Well, I found it to be very simple and an easy way to get updates about free stuff.

Dentyne sent me 2 free containers with 60 pieces of gum for my tweet!

I signed up at twitter.com and I 'follow' my favorite sites free samples , Swagbucks , friends and other blogs for updates.

I thought I had to have a phone with internet access, which I don't. And I didn't know why anyone would want to know when I was vacuuming or taking out the trash...LOL

Those are misconceptions, you don't need internet on your phone. I just go online if I want to do a status update. These days my status just consist of a phrase that might win me something or if I've written a new blog post to update those following me.

An example if my Free Samples site is having a giveaway...I would tweet @newfreesamples thank you for a chance to win a free car!!!!

If they actually had that giveaway...I would be entered and they would see my tweet because of the @.....

What I LOVE most about twitter is that there is a little phone icon that when turned on will send texts to my phone. It's way too time consuming to chase samples around the internet.....So by following my free samples site I get texts to my phone with the latest sample.

It's nice because if it's a good one, I'll go sign up before it's gone. Or I can choose to ingore it.




Sign up with the free samples link and follow them on twitter for these great samples. Some of these are also my Swagbucks rewards.

I love the opportunity to try a product out for free to see if I would like to buy and use it. For the items I don't use I donate or make a nice gift basket for friends.

I hope that kinda explains twitter and I hope you follow me so I can see your tweets........

I've been trying to request samples from your site and I have no clue how. It keeps telling me I have a invalid email address, but I don't even know where to put the email address at.

Hi Sheena...there is a place for you to subscribe to the sites newsletters..this allows you to get e mails with the daily updates..but on thr welcome page you will see the last 10 offers..you will have to click on the offers you like and sign up for the sample...you can also explore the site for coupon deals and baby deals...there are alot of different categories to chose from....once you explore and get to know your way around the site you will really like it...hope that helps you

Michelle, you know a lot! And I know so little about these things...so the samples you get are from the 'free samples' link? Now I don't have a text plan on my phone, so I can't get twitter to update me, but emails work too?

Stop by my blog sometime. http://bucknerworld.blogspot.com/

Darn it! I think you may have jut pushed me onto the Twitter train. I have also been very reluctant partly because I too am lazy about learning new things. sigh, OK that was really the only reason I had. But I love free things and if this will truly help then I spose at some point soon I will be as addicted to twitter as I am facebook.
