Surfing for Freebies... yourfreestuff.com

Boot Camp feature for Friday, July 7, 2000

When you stay in a hotel, do you gather up those little soaps and bottles of shampoo before you check out. If you do... .have we got a Web site for you. Yourfreestuff.com specializes in free samples. Company president Steve Cross... .

"Free is the most popular search word on the Internet. It's more popular than music, money or even sex."

You're kidding!

"No I'm not. And the samples are good. They're name brand samples from name brand manufacturers."

Cross says the Web site does the screening for you...

"At YourFreeStuff.com we separate the free from the fake. We have real people, not robots, out there surfing the Web every single day looking for the best offers. And we throw away ninety percent of everything we find. How do we make money? Well, we find that once people start to trust our judgment on the free offers, they also find that they trust our judgment on special deals that they'd like to buy."

Back to the freebies. What can you find?

"A lot of health and beauty aids, shampoo, toothpaste. Those things are really, really popular because they're the kinds of things you want to try before you buy.

Especially, if you haven't stocked up lately at a hotel. You can find us for free... at ThirdAge.com. Bootcamp, I'm Fred Fishkin for CBS News.
