 "Nothing is ever free".

You're either going to pay for shipping, be required to make future purchases, cover sales tax, sacrifice your personal information to third parties, or make an initial purchase in order to receive that free service or product. Period. In the end, that shit isn't reall "free".

I always wonder what they want from me.

If it's something like a "free with purchase" type of thing I just see if I actually need it.

I think "what's the catch" goes right along with "nothing is ever free."

 I chose 'nothing is free.' But before I read the questions below and saw the options, the word 'free' to me makes me think of outdoors with a wide open sky.

Is it weird that my first thought was visual? A couple of lions running around an African plain for the first time with that song from the 60's stuck in my head now...

My first reaction, as I scrolled down to see the word was.....'where and what'.

lol

Other than that........in a magazine ad..........I pay no attention.

Most times, I read the fine print and find out just what is required to buy, sell or otherwise, before you get any thing 'free'.
