I’ve scored some amazing freebies on Facebook Marketplace lately, so I thought I’d start a gallery to catalog and share them with you.
I plan to keep this gallery updated with my latest Facebook freebies, so if you see it back on the blog landing page, you’ll know I have something new to share with you.
To view bigger photos of my freebies, and read the story behind each one, click on any of the images below to start the slideshow.
How Do You Get Freebies on Facebook Marketplace?
Most of the stuff that gets listed on Facebook Marketplace is for sale, but people do occasionally list freebies. Usually it’s when they have something large they need to get rid of quickly, or don’t want to have to pay to have hauled off, but sometimes it’s simply a random act of kindness – choosing to bless someone with an item that they no longer have use for.
If you want to find freebies on Facebook Marketplace, start by looking in the “Free Stuff” category. But don’t rule out the possibility of a freebie popping up in one of the other product categories. People who aren’t overly familiar with Facebook might overlook the “Free Stuff” category, when they’re assigning their listing to a category, or they may start out trying to sell an item, then later decide to give it away.
As you scour Marketplace for freebies, you’re bound to come across some listing that are marked as $0, but don’t actually turn out to be free, when you click through to the listing. It frustrating that people do this, but don’t give up. There are plenty of real freebies to be had.
The best Facebook Marketplace freebies tend to go quickly – often within minutes of listing – so look often, and respond quickly if you see something you want.
My gallery is proof that people give away some pretty amazing things on Marketplace. And while it’s only natural to get excited, when you find yourself on the receiving end of such a deal, it’s important not to let your excitement cloud your judgement. Always check the seller’s rating to get a better idea of whom you’re dealing with, and be willing to walk away, if anything feels off. The expression “it’s too good to be true” exists for a reason.
