Free sample of Dial NutriSkin Replenishing Lotion.

All these super-long, super-fancy product names are the bane of my freebie-blog existence. Not only does every product have to have like four adjectives in front of its name, but then they use bogus non-words like "NutriSkin," which to me sounds like a soy-milk skin forming on your granola-hemp cereal. Do they think we won't buy it if it doesn't have an eight-word-long name?

Anyway. Get a free sample of Dial body lotion. See, that wasn't so hard, was it?

Facebook: Free Kikkoman Pearl Organic Soymilk Coffee.

I was surprised to hear that Kikkoman is in the coffee business — aren't they mainly in the soy sauce business? Well, don't be surprised if your "coffee" has a certain umami flavor, is all I'm saying.

Seen on their Facebook page today:

"In celebration of National Coffee Day, we are offering our Facebook friends one free container of Kikkoman’s PEARL Organic Soymilk Coffee. Simply email your name and mailing address to" Today only!

Free Nintendo DSi/DSiXL/3DS game.

Huh, does anyone out there actually have a Nintendo 3DS? I hear they're not selling so well. But anyway, if you have a DSi or a DSiXL or a 3DS, you can download a free copy of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition. Up to 4 people can play together at once via wifi, as long as you all have the game.

Good for a limited time, so download now and embark on a magically portable quest!

Free sample of Crest Complete toothpaste.

After all those cups of free coffee, you're going to want to brush your teeth to avoid staining... so here's a freebie for a sample of Crest Complete toothpaste! This is what my dentist gives me, so let's just say I have a few travel-size tubes already lying around. I could probably just start squeezing it into my coffee to save time.

Free coffee from 7 am to 11 am on Sep. 29 at 7-11.

Whoa, this National Coffee Day thing is serious. 7-11 is celebrating by giving away FREE coffee on Sep. 29, from 7:00 to 11:00 am. You cnn also play some sort of silly online game on their FB page, but it's not necessary in order to go in and get your free coffee tomorrow.

We're going to be WIRED tomorrow, friends!

Free Allure beauty giveaways every day at 9:00 am PDT!

OK, I admit I wasn't going to post this at first because the freebies didn't sound that interesting, but it's my bad for not looking more closely at it. But you still have 3 days' worth of freebies to get! Each day at 9:00 am PDT, Allure is giving away a freebie to the first 10,000 people; today's is a Secret Natural Mineral Deodorant. Tomorrow is an Olay soap bar and then Friday is an Olay SPF moisturizer.

It's a little hectic right now as their servers get overloaded, but 10,000 is a lot of people, so just give it a minute and keep refreshing and you should get yours, stinky.

BOGO coffee drinks at Caribou Coffee Sep. 29.

It's National Coffee Day on Sep. 29! Caribou Coffee wants to celebrate with BOGO coffee drinks all day long. Find a location near you (sadly, there aren't any in Washington state, so we'll just have to celebrate coffee at regular price).

Free sample of Disney gummy vitamins.

Gummy vitamins are very popular in our household among the vague-desire-to-be-healthy-meets-vague-aversion-to-taking-pills demographic (100% of the total market). So these Disney character gummy vitamins should be just the ticket. Who wouldn't want to chew their favorite Disney princess to death?

Free sample of Dove Nourishing Leave-in Smoothing Cream.

Just in time for the rainy (frizzy) season, here's a free sample offer for Dove Nourishing Leave-in Smoothing Cream. 100% frizz control sounds like something I could use during the 10 rainy months of the year in Seattle.

Free sample of Icy Hot Naturals pain relief cream.

Soothe those tired muscles with a free sample of Icy Hot Naturals pain relief cream. Click on the "get your free sample" button around the middle of the page.

Do you think this would work faster if I squeezed it directly into my free Joe coffee? I like to combine my pain relief with a jolt of caffeine, if possible.

Free sample of Joe coffee.

If you like your coffee like you like your men, then you'll definitely want to request a free 1.75 oz sample of Tall, Dark and Handsome coffee. Otherwise, I guess you can just request the Wake Up Joe flavor.

I hope a sexy mailman delivers it to my door!

Borders closing sale: Everything now 70-90% off.

The Borders sale is taking its final tottering steps toward death's door this week... everything is now at least 70% off. I haven't been by for a while because it was just too depressing, but maybe I can find the inner strength to go peek at it one last time.

Who will give us 40% off coupons now? I guess we'll just have to order everything from Amazon.

Free sample of Infusium 23 Leave-in Treatment.

Looks like it's beauty day in the freebieverse! "Like" Infusium 23 on Facebook and get a free sample of their leave-in conditioning treatment.

Shockingly, I've never tried a leave-in conditioner, but maybe now is the perfect time to start...

Free sample of L’Oreal Youth Code day/night cream.

Get a free L’Oreal Youth Code day/night cream sample — if you're fast! This sample may go quickly and the page can be slow-loading due to high traffic, but it worked for me, so I guess I'll get to cling to my youth just a teensy bit longer.

Borders closing sale: Everything now 60-80% off.

It's time for the next round of markdowns in the Borders closing sale: everything is now 60-80% off. (As I walked past the downtown Seattle store this morning, the signs still said 50-70% off, but maybe they're changing the signage today.)

I have to tell you, it's getting pretty depressing in there, between the picked-over shelves and the sorry-looking new merchandise that the liquidators brought in to make the shelves look fuller. But if you're on the hunt for bargains, it's finally getting to steal-of-a-deal markdown levels, so good luck...
