Bypass newspaper paywalls
Newspapers are dying, so they try to charge you if you want to read their news or commentaries. You can use workaround to avoid the paywalls, such as clicking on links on social media sites, accessing sites from incognito windows, clearing your browser cache or one of the other, infinite ways there are to get around poorly-implemented online roadblocks publishers hoist up.
Use promotional accounts to get free access to pay TV
Have you ever signed up Netflix or Hulu Plus with its free promotional codes? And cancelled it before the credit card hit comes, then conjure a new email address to sign up for yet another trial? Or how about borrow logins and passwords from friends and family to watch for free?
Get free memberships to warehouse stores
Sam’s Club and Costco offer full, no-questions-asked refunds at any time for their annual membership fees. You can certainly wait till the day your membership about to expire and go there asking for a refund. Of course you can use those funds to pay up for next year’s fee.
Use free vehicle diagnostic services
Auto parts stores wedge in on mechanic shop business by encouraging customers to fix their own vehicles. To win their business, they offer to do things mechanics charge $60 or more to do — such as run diagnostic tests on batteries and check-engine codes — for free.
Avoid gym memberships
Have you ever tried to borrow gym membership ID cards from friends who just look like you?
Or have you tried to rotate your gym memberships among several ones in your local area, because they all seem to perpetually handout monthly free trial coupons to new customers all the time?
