In today's Stretch Your Dollar, there's no need to spend money tonight or tomorrow on Black Friday. That's because we found a list of freebies good on the biggest shopping event of the year.
At Half Price Books, the first 100 customers to show up when the doors open at 7am will get a free $5 gift card and tote bag.
At Toys R Us, the store opens tonight at 8pm and the first 200 people in line will get a bag of free toys worth $30. Toy brands include Lego, Disney Junior and Crayola.
Gobble up this next freebie over at Walgreens.com. It's a free 8x10 portrait. Just enter promo code "free2thank" at checkout now through Saturday, November 24.
At Red Lobster on Black Friday only, it's buy one Maine Stays entree, get one free. The maximum value is $15.99 and it's one coupon per visit. To get the coupon, head to Red Lobster's Facebook page and claim the offer. It will be e-mailed to you. You can print or show your server the offer from your smart phone.
If you skip breakfast on Black Friday, the folks over at Sam's Club want to energize you with a free Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee as well as a free artisan pastry. The free breakfast starts at 7am.
Not to be outdone, Costco is offering a free cookbook called "Simply Delicious." It's one free cookbook per household.
Something to keep in in mind: these freebies are limited and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
