Last weekend, we had a bevy of President's Day sales; before that, it was Valentine's Day. There are no such excuses for sales events and promotions this weekend, but there are still deals out there -- many of them of the "free stuff" variety. Here are some of the best freebies you can grab.
Coupon site BeFrugal.com tips us off to this sweet White Castle coupon that gives you a free cup of chili with any purchase. "Any purchase" would seem to include anything on the menu, and absent any fine print we suppose this means you can just buy a soda and score some free chili. The coupon is good at participating restaurants through Feb. 28.
Meanwhile, Victoria's Secret is already pumped for summer: You can get a free sample of self-tanning lotion just for trying on a bathing suit in the store. If you don't actually have any interest in buying a bathing suit in February, we're guessing you can just go into a dressing room with a bathing suit for a few minutes and then come out and get your free self-tanner. The deal is good through Feb. 25.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab isn't exactly the most popular tablet around, and it's struggling to make headway against the likes of the iPad and the Kindle Fire. So that's probably why it's being offered as a throw-in with Samsung TVs on Amazon. Buy one of these select TVs through March 2 and you'll get the Galaxy Tab 2, normally priced at $199, for free. Here's the rub, though: The offer is only good on fairly pricey Smart TVs, with the cheapest option being a 46-inch 3D TV selling for $1,598. So unless you're in the market for a really expensive TV, this probably isn't the deal for you.
