HOW
TO
GET
FREE
STUFF
FOR
SENIORS




Senior citizens are eligible for hundreds
of freebies from drug companies, hotels,
campgrounds and other businesses hoping to
attract them as customers. You can look at
freebie sites geared toward seniors to find
the most current offerings.

Other places to find senior freebies include
your local senior center, federal government
programs, state programs or local programs.
Some local businesses offer free immunizations
for seniors, others may have a buy-one-get-one
free dinner specials for seniors on a certain
day of the week. Keep your eyes open and you
will be surprised at the availability of free
stuff for seniors.



Instructions


1. Visit senior freebie websites, These
sites are filled with coupons, free books,
free coffee, free health screening
information, free campground passes and more.
To claim the freebie, simply follow the
directions listed. You may need to fill out
a form and mail it in to the company, print
out the coupon or contact the company another
way. Sometimes you must pay for postage to
receive the freebie.

2. Take a class, play a game or enjoy a speaker
at your local senior citizens center. Some senior
centers also offer free transportation to malls
and shopping areas. Many senior centers advertise
their programs in the local newspaper.

3. Read the newspapers and listen to the radio to

days.

HOW
TO
GET
A
FREE
COMPUTER
FOR
SENIORS




The goal of putting a computer in every home
is coming closer to fruition as a bevy of
organizations make free computers available
to low-income families and the elderly. But
actually getting your hands on one of those
free computers may not be in the cards if
you don't live in the right state or meet
specific qualifications.



Instructions


1. Agree to pay a bit more to access the Internet,
and you'll discover several companies that are
anxious to give you a free computer. You may also
have to visit websites generating ads for their
clients. A couple of the companies that fall into
this category can be found in the Resources section.

2. Agree to stroll through a bunch of advertisements
everytime you surf the web, and you'll discover there
are several companies that will give you a free
computer. Many are totally free, including Internet
access and e-mail.

3. Receive a free computer or Web TV if you are a
disabled veteran without making any commitment for
Internet service or paying other monthly fees.

4. Obtain a free computer if you are part of a low-income
family. There are tons of places that are willing to hand
out these computers, but most will only provide them to
families living in their local areas. Examples of this
type of service can be found in the Resource section.

5. Meet specific criteria and, if you're a senior citizen,
you can get a free computer. Sometimes there's a small fee
involved (like shipping and handling), but these computers
are totally free for the elderly. You should also check
with organizations in your area for free PCs.
