friday freebiesThe Friday freebie roundup this week includes a sample of a new CoverGirl makeup product, lightbulbs, coffee and a waffle. Plus, there is a hot deal for a $25-value photo book (though you have to pay a few bucks for shipping) and a movie rental. Happy weekend to you!

Get a free sample of CoverGirl foundation through Walmart when you share your name, address, email and birth year. Then answer three multiple-choice questions about your use of liquid foundation. The sample is of CoverGirl's new Natureluxe liquid foundation, which apparently is much lighter and natural looking than past liquid foundations. Caveats: while supplies last; available to U.S. residents only; one per household. Expect the free sample to arrive in a few weeks in the mail.Get two free lightbulbs and a free LED keychain light from Lamps Plus when you join its email list. No purchase is necessary. For the lightbulbs, you can choose either two 57-watt type-"A" bulbs (that's the most commonly used kind) or two free 40-watt chandelier bulbs. The LED keychain light sells for $15, not sure about the lightbulbs. Share your name, zip code and email to get coupons for the free lightbulbs and free LED keychain sent to you. Share your address if you want to receive the Lamps Plus catalog, although that's not necessary to get the freebies. Both freebie coupons must be redeemed in store. There are many more freebies with purchase available through Lamps Plus. Click the link above for details. Caveats: not valid online.
