  • I order from places I'm comfortable with. Amazon, JC pennys, e-bay, Major department stores...but I wouldn't order anything from someone who spamed me.

  • I agree with Farrahann on this one, stick with people you know, but if you are looking for free stuff, I would go to yahoo groups and search for a freebie group, or you can just type in freebies in your search bar. I don't participate in freebies that require me to fill out a survey or purchase anything, so be careful, but my mailbox is usually full of free stuff.

  • As far as free or free samples from well known companies are fine, I get freebies all the time. But free trials on pills or things like that usualy have fine print....ordering the free trial means you may automaticaly be billed and sent pills each month (usualy $80+ too) OR if you keep the free trial longer than 10 days (or whatever the terms state) you'll be billed full price for the item!

  • I shop online all the time. One way to protect yourself is to get a secure credit card number. Discover is good for this. I also shop through e-bates great for getting $ back from your purchases.
