Tips for the day! What you need to know before signing-up for FREE offers!
When signing-up for freebies, don't use ur real ph#, nor ur real email addy, either! Instead, use a separate email addy just for junk. And I recommend using a free Google voice ph# to avoid unwanted calls. Otherwise, u may end up w/ tons of calls & emails from online schools, insurance sales people & such, trying to sell u stuff.
If u don't want to set-up an additional email acct & ph #, then at the very least, don't provide ur real ones (use fake ones); but keep in mind, some freebies require email confirmation/subscription, so i think it's best to set-up a freebie email addy. And if u don't want to get a free Google voice #, then provide the # to the local pizza place or w/e lol. But remember, if you're entering to win something, u just might want them to be able to contact u by ph, so i do suggest getting that free Google voice # just in case u win something! Google voice allows u to block #s & forward calls, plus a bunch of other neat things, all for free! :-) Please feel free to share any other tips in the comments section below.
p.s. most of u may already know these things, but i thought it was worth sharing w/ the newbies!
