    Please do Keyword Search + How to Post a New Freebie - You must read before posting or your post will be deleted.

    First and foremost, search to see if the freebie has been posted before. If it has not been posted then proceed with the format below.

    Freebies are simply samples from a company, nothing more. Any time there are coupons, rebates (including cash register rebates), money out of pocket, etc. the post needs to go in the Hot Deals section.

    Post Title
    Include who is making the offer, what the freebie is, the expiration date, and any other information that helps such as: *SASE, *Call-in, *Business, limited number such as *first 100,000, *Select cities/areas, *Religious, *Must Cancel, *Survey Required, etc...

    Body of Thread
    Post the link, who, what, and detailed information if available regarding the freebie offer.

    Think Quality not Quantity
    Example: If you have 10 free offers for bumper stickers make one thread with all offers listed and make the title to reflect that (10 Bumper Stickers *Various Offers ) rather than making individual new threads.

    What Not to Post
    Do not post freebies that state that the first *100, or some other low number, unless the site makes it clear what number they are on for the freebie. (These are often phishing sites!)

    Do not post free offers that require referrals or completion of other offers to qualify for freebie. Referrals include links to other freebie sites. (These are more often than not scams and/or phishing sites)

    Do not post sweepstakes or contests in the Freebie forum. This includes any "Chance to win", "You could win", "Win a Free iPod" etc...

    If you post something and it is starred out (i.e. *****), please do not repost it with spaces or anything else. We want to make Spoofee.com a safe experience and we will often ban Web sites that are known malicious sites or sites that will collect your information and provide you nothing in return except spam.

    Please do not repost a thread if a mod has deleted it. Send us a PM (private message) if you want to know the reason it was deleted.

    If you find a Freebie that isn't valid any more you can click on the gray triangle below the post and report the post is no longer valid. This will alert the moderators to update the thread.

    Lastly, if you haven't already done so yet you need to read the site rules. These contain helpful information for the complete site.

    Thank You,
    The Spoofee Moderators

    Forum Rules and Forum Information - Read before posting

    Forum Rules

    1. Respect forum members, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts or personal attacks

    2. Be sure to search before posting, in order to keep from posting something that has already been posted before

    3. Do not post referral or self-advertisement postings (ie...your website, webstore or advertise products you are selling), also no advertising avatars, signatures or custom user titles are allowed

    4. Do not use a URL-shortening service such as, but not limited to, bit.ly; these are often used to hide referral links

    5. Your custom user title must not contain any fake user levels or titles that may lead other users to believe that you a moderator or administrator. Also, other titles including: Banned, Temp. Ban, Mod, God, Moderator, Moderatorette, Staff, or any other spelling variations are not allowed.

    6. Do not post "free ipod", "free flatscreen", "free computer" etc. posts

    7. Do not post warez, warez sites, pornography or racist/hate sites, also no software piracy of any kind shall be posted or discussed here

    8. Do not post obscene or adult material in the forums

    9. Refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsense posts. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed
      1. Instead of posting thank you type posts in the threads, use the button to show your thanks or you can click on the button to give the user kudos for a job well done

    10. Do not post the same deal in multiple sections. If you cannot figure out which section to post in, pick the one you feel is appropriate, it can always be moved later

    11. Posts in the Off Topic forum do not count towards your total post count. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about.

    12. Social groups will be removed after 90 days of the last post. Once removed the group can be recreated, but the previous posts and pictures can not be recovered.

    13. We reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules, consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way

    A little info about Spoofee.com warning system

    Some of you may have noticed that some posts are marked as "Warned Post", others may have noticed that on their profile it states "Warnings Level: *".

    To see the list of warnings that can be issued and also check to see what, if any, warnings you have issued against you use the link below. The table shows the name of the warnings, a brief description of the warning, the number of points for each violation and how long the warning points remain in effect. After a person receives 10 points, that member is temporarily banned for up to 30 days. If the person still continues to break the rules after the inital ban, they could be permanently banned.

    We try to be fair with our members, but we also try to keep things clean and running smoothly. So if you happen to get a warning or even two don't get too uptight about it. Just learn from your mistake and move on. Usually the only people who get permanently banned are the spammers and repeat violators.

    Thank You,
    The Spoofee Moderators
