We love bargains, but we love free even more. And today's roundup focuses on some of the best freebie offers we've seen this week. From free movies and music to breakfast cereal, all of these deals are Editors' Choice-caliber. So make sure you take advantage of these gratis gifts to you.
Free Coca-Cola 20-oz. Drink and Popcorn
Price: Free via printable coupon
Expires: March 31
Is It Worth It?: We love how Blockbuster has created a printable coupon that nets the bearer a 20oz. Coke and a single popcorn at participating Blockbuster stores for free and with no minimum purchase. While the coupon is limited to one per day, in theory, you could get a free Coke and popcorn every day for the next two months!
Stream Free Full-Length Movies
Is It Worth It?: YouTube is famous for amusing cat videos, but now you can indulge in Groundhog Day, Talladega Nights, Legends of the Fall, and Donnie Brasco too. More of a classic movie fan? Stream Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton classics, opt for the great vampire movie Nosferatu, or check out the high-larious marijuana-panic classic Reefer Madness. And hey, if you have an Internet streaming receiver like Roku or Boxee, you're not limited to the modest dimensions of your laptop, either.
Free MP3 Albums and Singles
Vendor: Google Music
Is It Worth It?: In an effort to compete with iTunes and Amazon MP3, we're seeing another round of free MP3 and MP3 album downloads, from popular artists, via Google Music. While you will need Gmail and Google Wallet, your credit card won't be charged when you download The Rolling Stones' "Dancing With Mr. D" MP3 Single, Pearl Jam's 9.11.2011 Toronto, Canada MP3 Album (pictured), and two more live albums from Dave Matthews Band. For more artists' recordings, click here.
Krispy Kreme: Buy a Dozen Doughnuts, Get a Dozen
Vendor: Krispy Kreme
Price: Second dozen is free
Expires: February 14
Is It Worth It?: Yes, you'll need to shell out some dough (get it??) to obtain this freebie, but for Krispy Kreme lovers, it's totally worth it. By a dozen doughnuts at a participating location, and you'll receive 12 Valentine's Day cards that can each be redeemed for a free doughnut later. Spread the love with friends and coworkers on Valentine's Day, and you can reap the rewards of free sugary goodness later.
