'Tis the Season for Freebies: Today's 5 Free Deals

By , dealnews contributor

While there may be no such thing as a free lunch, this week we've rounded up some enticing freebies, which happen to include a side of free sweet potato fries, as well as other deals served up fresh.

So with Black Friday almost upon us, let's take that savings mood to the max. Invoke the mystical power of the freebie — all five of them below — and rake in rewards without having to max out your credit card. And if you want to rechristen us "freebienews" for the time being, we won't mind a bit.

  1. Free BJ's Wholesale Club 60-Day Shopping Pass
    Price: Free via printable coupon
    Expires: December 31

    Is It Worth It?: Already moving high up on our hotness meter, this deal gets you a complimentary 60-day shopping pass at BJ's with this printable coupon. Think of all the damage you could do in 60 days, especially since the usual non-member surcharge of 15% has been waived. With Black Friday upon us, this deal couldn't be better timed, so consider activating the pass and using it on the TV deal we mentioned in this roundup.

  2. iPhone / iPad App Freebies: Games, Storybooks, Utilities
    Price: Free
    Lowest By: Varies

    Is It Worth It?: A deal like this may stoke holiday sales of the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, but you don't need to buy a new gadget to enjoy these gratis apps. The offerings include Veggie Samurai: Uprising (a slicing game a la Fruit Ninja); "The Twelve Days of Christmas" for iPad (an HD story); LiveProject Team HD for iPad (a project keeper app); and i Fishing 2 (similar to the game Flick Fishing). Click here for more free downloads.

  3. White Castle Coupon: Free Sweet Potato Fries
    Price: Free via printable coupon
    Expires: December 31

    Is It Worth It?: Go to White Castle's Facebook page and "like" the restaurant to instantly download your printable coupon for free medium sweet potato fries with cinnamon dipping sauce (mmmmmm!), with the purchase of any side. We like to pretend these fries are more nutritious than the regular variety, so you can feel just about guilt-free as you order these up with a big bag of sliders … and some jumbo milkshakes … and …

  4. Custom Printed T-Shirt from VistaPrint
    Price: Free with $4.41 s&h

    Is It Worth It?: Free shirts are always nice, especially ones that say "I heart dealnews" or "I survived Black Friday 2011 thanks to dealnews." Whatever you put on there, you'll just pay the cost of shipping (with the exception of T-shirt size XXL, which will cost you an additional $1.99). Still, can you beat this price? Well, maybe if your family owns a T-shirt shop. Otherwise, head over to VistaPrint to get started.

  5. Free $20 Credit at Vente-Privée from AmEx
    Price: Free
    Expires: December 31

    Is It Worth It?: Vente-Privée, a new flash sale site (similar to Gilt) from American Express and France's Vente-Privée, offers a free $20 American Express credit for new customers who pay with their American Express cards. Register here and you can start saving up to 70% on top designers. Events start daily at 10 am ET and last 72 hours.
