My inner college kid will always love free stuff. On campus, the easiest way to draw a crowd was always to holler out "free pizza!" or "free Red Bull!" and watch the co-eds swarm.
For those of you chained to your desk or laptop from 9-to-5, here is a list of free tech goodies that will give you a little jolt. It's like bargain hunting, without the mileage.
This list will be updated with expiration dates (where applicable) and new deals as I find them.
- $5 Credit for Amazon MP3: All you have to do is fill out a one-question survey, and you can opt-out of emails and advertising. Here's the link: https://www.scottbrand.com/offer/amazon (credit expires January 2013)
- Free, legal music downloads through Freegal - all you need is a local library card. Several Bay area counties are members of this service: http://www.freegalmusic.com/users/sndlogin (app also available for iPhone and Android)
- Free audiobooks on Audible: You can find this through a Google search. Just type in "$0.00 site:audible.com."
