On any given day, retailers may offer free, random giveaways to drive traffic to their stores. My trick to finding out current and upcoming freebies is to search on Google News. Type in “free coffee” or “free breakfast” or “free massage” and you’ll get several results. I just did for “free” and discovered free donuts at Dunkin Donuts on June 4, as part of National Donut Day. (The freebie catch is you have to first buy a beverage first. Go figure.)

Scheduled freebies can be tough to follow. Sometimes we don’t get enough advance notice, we forget or we run out of time. I was personally frustrated earlier this year when I didn’t make it in time to get a free scoop of ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s. I guess there’s always next year.

In the meantime, here’s a list of year-round freebies. From free facials to yoga there’s hopefully something here for everyone.

This article has some good stuff in it. I'm already looking at some of it. I need a facial, so I looked up the number to a department store here that carries Clarins. They told me I can drop in anytime during the day (9am-3pm) or I can make an appt. Think I'm gonna have to give it a go.
