We host our own giveaways and hunt down great deals daily- but there is one more way you can get prepping and survival gear cheap: free prepper gear. Free stuff can be found all over the internet if you know where to look.
We’ve previously promoted ‘free gear’ that had shipping and handling fees, which obviously makes them not free! We’ve pulled all of these listings to make room for the truly free stuff that won’t cost you a dime- even the shipping is covered! Below, we list out the best options on where to find the free gear with absolutely no cost.
Free Prepper Samples
Your opinion matters. Really! Companies are willing to give you free stuff in exchange for it. Here are the major companies that give out free gear and samples just for a thumbs up or down:
PINCHme – Join other ‘Pinchers’ that review samples to stock up on tons of freebies. These are true samples, so the sizes are small, but it is all 100% free! You get to pick your samples and the selection is ridiculously huge. Being preppers, we like to target:
- First Aid Supplies (bandages, ointments, braces, etc)
- Hygiene Supplies (soaps, lotions, travel size hygiene)
- Food Supplies (protein bars, coffee/tea, supplements)
- Home Supplies (trash bags, pesticide, ink pens)
Check it out here to start getting tons of (small) stuff for free! –
JustFreeStuff – Another website with a wider variety of freebies. Sure, they have some samples but they also have larger items and giveaways. Instead of the catalog format, like PINCHme, they update the site regularly and send out updates to their email subscribers.

Review for Free Survival Gear
Do you already own some survival gear or prepping tools? Chances are that if you do, you could leave a pretty good review on how it’s been holding up for you. Leave enough reviews and companies will send you gear for free just to keep the reviews coming!
Amazon – Did you know Amazon will start shipping you free stuff if you give enough well received reviews? The secret is engaging reviews with photos and/or videos. Focus on a niche (like survival gear?) and it will increase your likelihood that you will become a ‘top reviewer’ and get gear from that niche.
