Whether you’re looking to cut back costs on dining out, reading materials, long-distance phone calls or even tropical vacations, there are a number of sites dedicated to assisting you in getting these things free of charge.

For example, many restaurants in Canada allow children to eat for free, whereas adults can snag a meal by becoming secret food critics.
