This week we launched our freebies hub, a page where you can always find the latest features and resources to get free stuff online. In our freebie fervor, we've also rounded up the week's best freebie deals. Dress like a cow to get free food from Chick-Fil-A, score a free beginner's guide to D&D, and save $19 on a free bag of cat litter.
Price: Free with full cow costume
Expires: July 11
Is It Worth It?: Calling all members of Bos taurus! July 11 is Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A, and anyone who comes decked in an UDDERly ridiculous cow costume will score a free meal. Even if the MOOst you can manage is a partial cow costume, you'll still score a free entrée. This promotion is valid for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, so strap on your bell and go get some chicken, Bessie!
Should the thought of dressing up like cattle MOOve you to tears (we're done now), then you can still score a freebie on July 11. From 11 am to 7 pm local time, participating 7-Eleven locations will offer a free small Slurpee Drink to celebrate 7-Eleven Day. That's tied with our mention from last year as the best no-coupon offer we've seen.
