Huffington Post has a slide show of ten things that you should never pay for, i.e. that you should always get for free.
* Reading material (library books, online magazines)
* Standard checking accounts
* Public wi-fi
* Religious services
* Social Media
* 411 information service
* Online news
* Standard in-flight beverages
* Credit reports
I think we Buxrites are smarter than just that. What would you add to the list of things never to pay for. Here are my adds:
* Anti-virus software.
Whether you have a free package (like AVG) or a free after rebate package like so many posted on our pages, there are always free options.
* Popular magazine subscriptions
If you look hard enough and long enough, you will find the mags you want available for nothing from services like rewardsgold or freebizmag
Get them at your library or from a free download
Library, downloads or streaming, or free codes from RedBox and Blockbuster.
There seems to almost always be a free deal from snapfish, shutterfly, artscow, and others.
And a couple I am less sure of:
Frys and Tigerdirect often have them free after rebate, and various freebies are out there for the eagle-eyed Buxr user. Can you get by without actually buying them?
Certainly not in the volume for an office or a home office, but Staples and OfficeMax and others frequently have a ream or bundle for free after rebate.
Let's hear what you have to say.
