Free Burger King onion rings Feb. 4-5.

A while back, Burger King was offering free french fries to spread the word about their newer, healthier (less unhealthy?) fries. I'm not sure if this onion rings freebie is along the same lines, but you can get your free "value-sized" onion rings in participating Burger Kings this weekend, Feb. 4-5.

It doesn't look like a coupon or purchase is necessary; the only restriction is that you can't get them during breakfast hours. Not that you'd want onion rings for breakfast anyway... would you?

Facebook: Free sample of Quaker Oatmeal Squares.

So you don't want to go all the way to IKEA for a free breakfast? OK, you can still start your morning off right with a free sample box of Quaker Oatmeal Squares. Just "like" them on Facebook and fill out the form to sign up.

Now we just need a milk freebie...

Free breakfast on Monday mornings at IKEA.

Did you know that IKEA offers free breakfast until 11:00 am on Mondays*? My grandma lives pretty near an IKEA. If I were retired, I would go there every Monday just to eat free breakfast and hang out... and maybe do some speed dating.

*This offer is limited to: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington.

Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka: free mason jar.

In random-freebie-of-the-day news, here's one for a free mason jar from Firefly sweet tea vodka. They tweeted that anyone who signs up for their Friends of the Fly community will receive a free mason jar.

Of course, you could also go to your local thrift store and get one for a quarter, but maybe this one has a special Firefly logo or something?

Facebook: Free Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex sample.

Olay is giving away 10,000 free samples of its Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex on Facebook starting today —  just "like" them and fill out the form. It's a wrinkle-free Friday!

$2 certificates.

I know, that's pretty weak, but it's been a REALLY slow week for freebies and that's the best I could come up with. Get $25-off dining certificates at using promo code DATE.

As always, be sure to check the fine print for minimum check amount, automatically included gratuity, etc., but it's still a pretty cost-effective way to try out a new restaurant.

Facebook: Free Kraft Mac & Cheese.

Who doesn't like mac & cheese? Get yourself a coupon for a free box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese when you like them on Facebook and fill out the "Macsurance" form, whatever that is. They're giving freebies away daily through March 4, and you can get up to 3 coupons per household, but you'll have to provide your own ketchup and hot dogs.

Free Keebler 100 Calorie Right Bites white fudge pretzels w/rebate.

Hmm, interesting. Here's a rebate for 100 Calorie Right Bites Keebler white fudgey pretzels, but apparently you need not only the usual UPC and receipt, but also some sort of special "rebate token" that's found inside the package. I'll be on the lookout for one of these in the store. Has anyone else seen this before? It's new to me...

"To receive your rebate on 100 Calorie Right Bites Keebler White Fudge Dipped Pretzels send one token from specially marked packages, original cash register receipt with purchase price circled, and completed rebate form. Maximum rebate of $4.00. Must be purchased by 08/31/12. Must be postmarked by 09/14/12. One rebate per household."

Free Schick Hydro Silk razor.

Who doesn't like to be an insider? Schick is apparently launching a HUGE new women's razor, and wants you to be one of the first to try it (and tell your friends about it). Get a free Schick Hydro Silk razor when you sign up online.

I tend to drop and break my razors a lot because I'm pretty much still asleep in the shower, so I'll be curious to see if this Hydro Silk can withstand my zombie-like fumbling...

BOGO Land O Lakes Buttery Taste Spread (with rebate).

Mmmm, fresh buttery taste spread! That sounds... not a lot like butter. But at least you can get two packages for the price of one! Send in the rebate form and they'll mail you a coupon for a free package.

Buy one package Land O Lakes Fresh Buttery Taste Spread. Mail in request for rebate offer with cash register receipt. Receive a coupon by mail for a Free Land O Lakes Fresh Butter Taste Spread w/ Olive Oil. Maximum value of $2.99. Purchase must be made by 02/29/12 and request must be postmarked by 03/31/12.

Things that exist: Facebook Timeline personalized business cards. Don't believe me? They're giving away 200,000 free sets (5,000 per day), and you can be one of the winners! Read the instructions and send me one if it works.

Free museum admission this weekend with B of A debit/credit card.

I always forget about this one, but B of A is still quietly running its Museums on Us program, where you can get free admission to selected museums, zoos, botanical gardens, and parks on the first weekend of the month when you show a debit or credit card with a B of A logo.

Seattle's listings include the Seattle Art Museum, which might be a little less crowded for this than on First Thursday. Find a museum near you and make your weekend plans!

Facebook: Free Eucerin Calming Itch-Relief Treatment sample.

Icky, dry winter skin? I feel your pain. Get your free Eucerin Calming Itch-Relief Treatment sample when you like Eucerin on Facebook and watch a short video. Apparently it takes a few seconds for the video to load, so try not to claw at your raw, peeling skin while you're waiting.

Free cup of Meow Mix Pate Toppers.

You know how to make smelly cat food more appetizing? Put even smellier moist cat food on top of it. (Then again, that's pretty much what paté is anyway, right?)

If this sounds good to you, sign yourself up for a free cup of Meow Mix Paté Toppers.

IKEA is trying out something new next Saturday, Jan. 14. It's called BYOF (Bring Your Own Friends) and they're doing all kinds of free goodies and giveaways when you RSVP on Facebook.

Facebook: Free Celestial Seasonings Wellness Tea sample.

Aha, there you have it! My theory is confirmed: freebies like to travel in packs. So here's another free Facebook tea sample, this one for Celestial Seasonings Wellness Tea.

Now can we please have a free coffee one?

Facebook: Free sample of Lipton Green Tea with Superfruit.

The holidays may be over, but winter is still here, which means we've got several months of hot-beverage weather ahead of us. Settle in with a nice, free cup of Lipton Green Tea with Superfruit when you like them on Facebook.

Freebies seem to come in themed groups, so maybe there's a coffee offer floating around out there today too? Fingers crossed!
