Freagle (FREESTUFFDAY)- Freebies Galore - KEEP ALL POSTS IN ONE THREAD ONLY

Posted By: Keeys, posted 2007/10/09 00:13
On www.freestuffday.com.au once a month - every month you can have the chance to secure an advertised item for free. This day is called "Free Stuff Day". Take a look at the banner at the top of this page to see when the next "Free Stuff Day" is and how many items are up for grabs.
Businesses that advertise with us offer these items for free because they want your attention. Take Pete for example, Pete's Picture Framing could offer a quality, framed print for free on www.freestuffday.com.au. Registered users that would like to have that item for free can select his business to be one of their "Free Stuff Day Companies".

On the next "Free Stuff Day" these users have the opportunity of securing for free, Pete's item or an item from any of their other selected "Free Stuff Day Companies". This chance is in return for allowing each selected Company to send them a single, once only correspondence through us within the month after that particular "Free Stuff Day".

Your contact details are held only by us and are never passed on to anyone else. You will only receive this correspondence through us.

After any "Free Stuff Day" all of your "Free Stuff Day Companies" selections are automatically cleared and you can then start selecting for the next "Free Stuff Day" if you choose to.

The advertised items will be randomly available to claim during the "Free Stuff Day" only. There are systems in place to achieve fair access for all users and you can also earn points in order to gain "Priority Access" . For more details on these please look at our Rules & Policies section.

    Just thought I'd say last month I was lucky enough to get an item.

    Not all items go off at once they go off all throughout the day and that evening. So even those that work have a chance to grab something :)

    There will be a Toyota Yaris up for grabs in January!!

    Goodluck I look forward to hearing if anyone gets anything this month :) :)

    I can't get my head around how this works. Sounds too good to be true ?

    Hey Keeys what did you get last time?
  • Keeys2007/10/09 19:57:58
    Last time I could have got alot of things that were on offer I didn't want such as dvd's, baby items, games, lots of necklaces and ear rings, light globes etc but I did get free web hosting for a year for a friend cause there really wasn't anything that intrested me at the times I was looking.

    Last month was the first time so I'm guessing there are alot more members now cause by the time everyone told family and friends and I've told you guys etc ;)

    Fingers crossed for those who give it a go :)

  • darwinspook2007/10/11 03:16:34
    wow some of these deals are excellant. Its just that i dont know how to use this site to my advantage very well. Can any one email me at darwinspook@hotmail.com and tell me;

    1. can i get the site to email me of impending offers such as to play bingo?

    2. Tell me how to operate this freestuff day? I see the information ,the," go to deal" is giving me a blank page. Is the day coming up or has it been and gone?

    There are so many great things on here but I have trouble trying to get it to work or know exactly what to do. And I feel dumb! Surely it can not be that hard. Please can someone explain?
  • Gallifrey2007/10/16 22:01:48
    Great, thanks for the info of "how to"....... I bagged one and so did my daughter!!
    thanks
  • jayne2007/10/16 22:03:51
    Sorry no-one responded to you darwinspook! Welcome to Buckscoop!

    1. can i get the site to email me of impending offers such as to play bingo?


    Not really, you just have to visit the forums, and Nod puts up notifications of the competitions.

  • Gallifrey2007/10/16 22:37:49
    I managed PS2 game: Grand Theft Auto 3 (Platinum) PS2 Game, that I can't believe as there was only one available, I really did click refresh at the right time! so hubby is happy!!

    Daughter got Homer in the fridge thing!! (Nod, we ended up with Homer anyway!)

    Who else snagged a freebie??

    Did you read lilpretzel's text above... loooks like it involves a lot of refreshing the page!
  • Michelle21542007/10/18 13:16:33
    Yep, to much hassle for me with a 3 year old and 1 year old screaming and yelling and swinging of my chair, i had to give up, I couldnt ignore spilt milk, squashed biscuits in the carpet and tears for to long.

  • admin2007/10/18 16:27:30
    :D - 253 degrees keeys - I think you got a winner here.

    Interesting concept. Its good to hear people have actually ended up with free stuff.

    Thanks for the step by step instructions lilpretzel. Looks like they were very helpful.

    darwinspook - love the name - and welcome. We dont email unless its admin related as its a little too close to spam for us. We dont have anything that contacts you when a new deal is put up except that we'll put a RSS feed up fairly soon - that would allow you see new deals as they come up - but its still not quite the same as email. I guess the only solution we can offer here is to say 'come back regularly' - the most active threads are bumped to the top of the forum. Alternatively you can do quite a lot of sifting of the deals on the 'Deals' page by using the filters. The only thing to remember there is that by default you only see deals up there where they have reached a certain temperature and have a certain number of votes. To see all the deals that have been posted click on the 'View all unrated deals' link. That displays eveything.

    With the deals you see posted - its just a matter of clicking through on the link to visit the site that has the deal. If your unsure of anything just make a post in the thread to ask how. We're all pretty helpful as you can see by lilpretzels efforts.

    ON A MANAGEMENT NOTE, TO KEEP THE FREEBIES SECTION CLEAN, I HAVE DECIDED TO HAVE ONE THREAD FOR FREESTUFF DAY
  • Sherri2007/10/21 17:58:43
    Hi everyone , i am new to Buckscoop :thumbsup:

    I managed to score an xbox game on the last freestuff day and a 60 hour prepaid dialup kit on the first one.

    One thing that helped me was an add-on you can get for internet explorer which will automatically refresh a web page every 5, 10, 20 seconds.
    I had 4 web pages open with 4 different products i was interested in and had them all resized so i could view them on my screen and had them set to automatically refresh every 10 seconds.
    All i had to do then was keep glancing at my computer screen every now and then to see if the 'choose this' button was active.

    I hope this comes in handy for people on the next freestuffDay! :)
  • elegantegotist2007/10/21 18:11:10
    What program is it ? Thanks in advance.
  • Sherri2007/10/21 18:16:47
    The one i have is called Auto IE Refresher version 1.00
    There is a few different ones about, maybe try typing auto refresher for IE into google?
    Firefox also have an auto refresher as an add-on, just go to the firefox add-ons page, it shouldn't be hard to find.
    If you have trouble let me know, i am sure i can find you one! :)
  • jayne2007/10/21 21:53:47
    A big welcome to Buckscoop Sherri - good to see you posting! Glad you also got some cool freebies as well!!
  • Keeys2007/10/22 08:56:04
    Glad to hear people managed to get a few things...nothing like something for nothing :)

    I missed this one cause it was my b'day so I was out all day. But thats ok it just means more points for next time :)

    Gooluck next month everyone :D
  • lilpretzel2007/10/29 17:52:52
    Very interesting, just received via email :)

    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]G’day to all lovers of free stuff![/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]We are ecstatic to be bringing you this service and thank you all for your support. Unfortunately though, we do have a couple of freestuffDAY users who are not so ecstatic.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]
    Why?[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]

    Because we had to be very mean and withhold free items from them because they weren’t playing by the rules which makes it unfair on other users of freestuffDAY.

    [/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]What did they do?

    [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="] [/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#000099][FONT="]One user was found to have created a number of false user accounts. That is against the rules. [FONT="]That user lost an iPod. Doh!![/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]Another user was found to have given us false address details and contact information. [FONT="]She lost her free holiday accommodation!! Ouch![/FONT] [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]For anyone who has created false accounts, [FONT="]please 'fess up' now[/FONT] and we’ll give you a break. If you have entered false account details then please update them in the My Details section of the website. If not, then no point going for free items because we do cross-checks on winners.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]
    No, we’re not trying to be Big Brother[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]. We are just trying to provide a fair opportunity for all.

    [/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]Finally, another concern has been reports that some of our users have been spamming in order to earn fixed points through referrals in order to gain Priority Access. Whilst we admire your initiative, and thank you for support, we do not condone spamming and will deduct points from anyone who is found to be engaging in the like.

    [/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=#000099][FONT="]Other than all that, things are going excellently and we have improved the system further to make the next free stuff day even better. We will let you know about those improvements in the next week or so.

    Very interesting pretzel. I particularly agree with this:

  • leny2007/11/17 23:51:56
    I have been logging in and doing surveys and earning points.

    But what do you do on the actual free stuff DAY? I'm just trying to prepare for my first one.

    Do you HAVE TO shortlish products you want? And how do you get them then? Is it first in (click), first served, or is it a random thing.
    Cheers :D

    Hi All,

    I was one of the lucky ones and managed to score 4 nights in cairns :D. Much better than last months $30 gift voucher.

    A helpful hint is to try and complete every survey and stay in the top 244 ranked people, that help in securing a good prize.
