Kiplinger's Fabulous Freebies 2008
« Reply #1 on: August 29, 2008, 01:46:12 PM »
Kiplinger.com just came out with their annual 30 Fabulous Freebies of the Year:

Some of the highlights, straight from the article:

FREE DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE
Save a buck or two and dial 1-800-FREE-411 next time you need directory assistance. It offers free guidance for residential and business listings.

After navigating the voice prompts, you may have to listen to a short advertisement (about 12 seconds long) and then you have the option to connect to the original business you requested, or to the sponsor.

FREE PLACE TO STAY
Traveling? Consider trading spaces. Hospitality exchange Web sites are growing in popularity. You can network to trade homes with someone who wants to visit your town, or even take turns hosting each other.

Some popular sites that specialize in connecting members with free places to stay include CouchSurfing.com, HomeExchange.com, IntervacUS.com and HospitalityClub.com.

FREE PHONE CALLS
Save on your long-distance bill and chat via computer with free software from Skype.com (no tin cans necessary). You won't pay a dime for any call to another Skype user. You can call non-users' landlines, too, for about $3 a month.

***

And of course, there are 27 more.  Check out the whole list and see for yourself.

Best wishes,
Jay
