Today we are talking about all the freebies the Click of Six have gotten in their lifetime. Tell us about the coolest ones.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s the coolest thing you have ever gotten free and how did you get it free?

  • Connie & Fish gave away 4 tickets to a waterpark in the Dells. I made it a girls weekend with my daughters and mom while the men hunted for opening weekend. That was like 10 years ago and they still talk about how fun that trip was.
  • This Shark steamer mop! Found it at a garage sale in hillbilly County and said I only had $2 on me and it was labeled for $5. They just said to take it as they were packing up their sale. $60 value!
  • The t-shirt off Iggy Pop's body. I was in 11th grade in high school and he was playing at a local venue in the Detroit area in 1980. I worked my way to the front of the stage, saw an opportunity, and jumped up on stage and danced with Iggy! I was up there for several minutes, he took his shirt off and tossed it to me, then the bouncers escorted me offstage and to the back of the room (but i worked my way up front again for the rest of the show ). I got to tell Iggy that story when I checked him in to the hotel where I was working in Boston about a decade later (see also my free concert tickets to Robert Plant story)...he was amused. I still have that t-shirt
  • Concert tickets to see Robert Plant in his Manic Nirvana tour many years ago. I also got backstage passes for me and my friends to meet him but we showed up a little too late to meet him (I still have my autographed backstage pass ). I got the tickets because he was staying at the hotel (in Boston) where I worked the front desk. He stayed about a week and his tour manager kept coming to the desk throughout that time for assistance (back in about 1990 before computers and cellphones...I sent faxes out for him). So he offered me tickets for me and several friends as thanks. It didn't matter that we didn't get to meet him that night, because a couple nights later his manager wanted a recommendation for a dive bar where Robert could go and just be regular without being recognized...and I knew the perfect place, so they invited me to go with them, just me, tour manager, Robert and one of Robert's friends! Super nice people
  • $20 from some dude who paid me to cut in line for the shitter at an MSU tailgate. I was about 10 years old at the time so it was a lot of money.
  • A free engine. They never ran it thru our credit card. $3200. At least 20 years ago.
  • I got a brand new smile thanks to a contest through Advanced Oral Surgery. They start taking applications (online through their website) in August. This is something I would have never been able to afford, and it's been an awesome experience
  • My friends & I went to a One Direction concert, we purchased tickets for nose bleeds seats but when we got there our seats ended up getting upgraded to floor seats next to the stage for free due to a promotion from Nabisco who was sponsoring the concert! It was the best day ever!
  • Went to Ozz Fest many, many moons ago when DTE was named Pine Knob and just had lawn seats and when it came time for Ozzy, we found tickets for 5th row seats in the seating area on the ground by a garbage can! Talk about a score!
  • My husband won VIP Monster Jam tickets off the radio!
  • Seiko watch...answering a question on the radio.....
  • My old boss gave me a stove . She wanted a bigger one. Its 5 burners gas on the top. Electric oven on one side and convection oven on the other. The 1 stove thermostat went out and my husband didnt want to mess with it. So we went ABC Warehouse and that type of stove was over 6000$. Needless to say he fixed it.
  • Brand new 55in TV. We bought it on super sale online. They emailed us that they were refunding our money because it was a typo on their website. We got our money back and a few days later we had a TV on our porch. We called and told them they could charge us (the mistake price) they said okay, and never did free TV! Lol
  • A Garmin hand held GPS I used for geocaching. I ordered it but didn’t pay for it- I got an email or something from my credit card company telling me it wasn’t a legit seller. It came in the mail anyway!
  • A free trip for 4 to Universal Studios Florida including airfare. Only entered their contest once on a whim.
  • We were given a 20ft×18ft metal carport with front closed off.....we just had to take it down. 3 hours later it was all down. Now its on our property. We have priced them and they cost about $2500+
  • Entered a Facebook contest and won my daughter a free week of overnight camp! She had been begging to go but it wasn’t in the budget, she had an amazing time
  • 2 dozen Krispie Kreme donuts! My husband and I went to pick up a dozen on Christmas Eve when our family was visiting family in Scottsdale, AZ. The worker asked if we'd be interested in an extra dozen for free because they had a lot and wouldn't be open for Christmas the next day. We gladly agreed and when we went to pay for the original dozen he just told us "Merry Christmas" so we ended up not having to pay for either dozen. It was an awesome holiday treat for our family!
  • My husband and i were at a comedy show that had a 50/50 raffle. The people who sat at the table with us had to leave early and gave us their tickets. Ended up winning almost $200 off of one of their tickets! It paid for our date night!

  • 2 pair of shoes for my son with Cerebral palsy. Several years ago this happened when my son was a baby. My Birthday is a few days before Christmas, happened to be right before I got paid. Went into payless at Grandville mall to look at shoes for my son. He needs 2 different sizes because of leg braces because he has CP. I found what I wanted with the help of the workers. I said thanks I'll be back on Friday for them. I left. 5 mins later the girls chased me down and gave me both pairs of shoes for my son. Said your son is beautiful, Merry Christmas! Made me cry, sweetest thing I was ever given!

We used to throw huge Halloween parties in the basement of our house. He was a grave digger at a cemetery on the other side of the state, and when things were damaged, they had to replace them. So they were scratched and dented which made them scarier.
  • Coolest thing I got for free was Taylor Swift concert tickets! Someone had them but couldn’t go last minute so they offered them up! It also included VIP parking passes
  • I ended up winning a giveaway on instagram. I hadn't realized that I entered when I got the message it was a mimic (creature that disguises it's self as something else in this case a treasure chest) mini unpainted.

  • I attended with a friend who’s wedding I was the maid of honor in. There was a dance contest to the song “Wobble” by W.I.C, so I ran out there started shaking what my momma gave me, and WON by loudest audience applause!

  • I bought a hot tub on line for $4000.000, when I filled it up with water and started the jets there was a leak somewhere. I called the manufacture they told me they would send me a new one, and to keep the other one too, or keep the tub that had a leak and they would refund my credit card. I did not know what to do with two hot tubs so I kept the leaky tub and took the refund. I called a hot tub repair man, he came out and fixed it for 75.00 and the only problem was a hose came loose while in shipping. easy fix!!! Free tub!!!!

I also about 7 yrs ago won a Facebook contest and got not 1 but 2 free GE alliances of my choice shipped to me. I had gotten a stand up freezer and a huge fridge w/ bottom freezer. Stainless steel. It was a huge blessing for me and my 2 sons because my fridge had broke and took all my food and meat with it. It all spoiled. And I had no money or anything and had been using my dad's mini fridge for my food. God blessed me when I was most in need.

After my then mother-in-law picked me up and we were on the way to her house I got a call from another owner checking on me and expressing his sympathies for what happened. He then asked me to meet him at a local car lot. I thought maybe he wanted to help me out with a down payment on a replacement car or something. When I got there he already had a car picked out and had me test drive it with him while he checked everything on it and he asked me what I thought of it. When I said it seemed like a solid car he told me it was mine and the company was paying for it. I cried and hugged him and couldn't stop saying "Are you sure? Thank you!"
  • So the coolest thing I got for free was a nintendo ds. I convined the boy to give it to me when I said they ran the risk of exploding and I was doing him a favor by saving him from losing his hands or life and I would get rid of it safely.
