*!*! LENGTH OF AVAILABILITY *!*! As I see it, longer that freebie is out on market, less chance you'll see it in your mailbox. A good, quality freebie is uaully in high demand with thousands upon thousands of requests per day. How can a company afford to spend so much money? They only can to a certain extent.
For example, typical length for a free t-shirt offer to be available is 1-2 weeks. By two weeks, company has probably gotten over 50,000 requests. Now, if they keep up at this pace, they'll be bankrupt in a month. That's why offer only lasts a week; so they can afford it. Any longer means company probably isn't sending anything out. Hence, they're scamming you just to get some information from you.
I'm not stating that everything I've said applies 100% to every freebie or company. There are ALWAYS exceptions. Tons of free offers are out there on internet. You've just got to have a watchful eye.
