Friday Freebie: Earplugs

August 1, 2008

in Free Stuff, Travel, Web Tips

As a no-budget traveler, you’ve been there: trying to sleep in your hostel bed after an exhausting day of sightseeing, your roommates come in drunk in the wee hours, snore loudly or forget to turn off their 6 a.m. alarm. You want to nab a few winks on a train or bus, but can’t seem to ignore the voices around you, vigorously discussing nothing important. Or maybe there are other sounds you’re trying to block and your iPod just isn’t doing the trick: I once sat on a transatlantic flight next to a young man chewing tobacco who spit into a bottle every 30 seconds of the entire nine hours. NINE HOURS of spitting.

For you, my friend, this most excellent freebie: professional-strength earplugs. I’ve linked you directly to the “combo pack” selection, which includes four different models to try; however, please shop around the website and see if you like something else they have on offer.

NB: since I discovered this freebie, they have added a qualifier on the request page:

Please note: we reserve the right to qualify requests and will not send to public domains or personal email accounts.

So if you want to try this one, be ready to use something other than a free email account. It also can’t hurt to include a reason and catalog request in the comments form. Because once these earplugs have rescued you, you may well wish you had a bulk supply!

I love your freebie section, it is really cool. I have sent away for and received about 5 of the items. The only annoying one was the travel almanac from DHL, it was low quality and small and they still call me twice a week to buy their services.

I recently started a business, where you can select or even custom design a greeting card online and then mail it anywhere in the world. It is NOT email but real postage mail. I have set up a free sample of this that your readers may like. If they sign up they can send 3 free cards (2 if not in the US) to anyone they want for whatever reason they want. To see all the details simply goto and click the big red button in the middle.

Gotta check out the NEW AIRPORT SECURITY PROCEDURES page at ryan air. It is great.

I just posted a big blog about airport security, would love to know what you think.

No post for 2 weeks? Where did you go?

I’ve not been able to find any earplugs that really work for me. Maybe these will do some good. Thanks for the tip. I’ll also be adding your to my blog roll.
