I love getting free stuff, especially if it’s something I can actually use. Did you know that there are lots of companies out there that send out free T-shirts?
It’s a win-win situation as they get exposure for their product when people wear their shirts, and you get a free T-shirt to wear with pride…even if it’s just an extra workout T-shirt for the gym.
I still have a Wendy’s “Where’s the Beef?” shirt I requested way back when, and I know I’ve gotten plenty of free T-shirts in the mail over the years.
How to Get Free T-Shirts
No matter your reason for wanting free T-shirts, you’ll want to know about all of the different companies that send out free T-shirts.
Some companies may require you to enter a sweepstakes or giveaway, or they may just send you a free T-shirt, no strings – or tags! – attached.
