Due to Halloween, November 1st always sneaks up on me. My brother-in-law can vouch for this, as we have missed his November 1st birthday more times than I care to admit. With Halloween now behind us though and Thanksgiving and Christmas before us, this month’s double find should come in handy. It’s all about finding deals!
The original plan was to tell you about this program, Freegal Music, that thousands of libraries participate in. It is a downloadable music service through your library. All you need is your library card number and some libraries utilize a PIN. Freegal has about 3 million songs in their database. Plus, there is no software to download and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Freegal is limited to patrons of subscribing libraries, so you’ll have to go on to Freegal Music and see if your library is one of them.
Once you have set up your account, they also have an app that you can add to your phone so that you can have your music on multiple devices. One drawback is that you are only allotted 3 downloads per week. It explains more about the logistics on their website, so if it’s something that interests you, go check it out!
Now for my bonus First Friday Find (FFF)! As I was typing in the website for Freegal Music, a typo led me to a SUPER cool website called Fregal.com. There is not an About section on the site, but it’s pretty straight forward. It’s a blog with post after post of free deals and savings. In the last week alone, there are posts on how to get a free Shutterfly photobook, free 8×10 collage print at Walgreens, a free kids meal at Outback Steakhouse, and more. There is also a search field in the sidebar along with a categories section to help expedite your savings search.
So go grab yourself some free music, start playing it, and peruse fregal.com to find some amazing holiday deals! Happy free shopping!
