This week's Friday Freebies has something for everyone -- from free iTunes MP3s to a subscription to Women's Day and free prescription glasses. Plus, it's not too late to take advantage of the free 60-day membership to BJ's and a free mascara offer at Sephora inside jcpenney. Also look for free tools, free Dove products for men, and free tax filing below. Hope you find something that floats your freebie boat!
Download 23 free iTunes MP3s courtesy of Urban Outfitters through June 30, 2011. The free mix album, dubbed LSTN #13, will begin downloading once you click the link and log into iTunes. If you do not have an iTunes account, you can set one up for free and then get the free MP3s. As your music downloads, you'll see a page with full length albums by each of the bands that contributed a free song to the Urban Outfitters mix.You do not have to buy any of these albums to get the free MP3s. You can listen to each song -- in full -- before downloading. The free iTunes MP3s includes music by Puro Instinct, Turo Y Moi, Destroyer, Dodos, Arcade Fire, Cut Copy, Mister Heavenly, Smith Westerns, Akron/Family, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Papercuts, Dream Diary, Tennis, White Fence, The Soft Moon, Chain & The Gang, Algodon Egipcio, Dom, WIN WIN, Austra, Mogwai, Seefeel, J Mascis. I listened to a few tracks and liked the alt rock, trance band, and indie bands. Refreshing compared to Top 40. The download took my computer about 10 minutes. Urban Outfitters also shares five free music downloads every Monday.
Get a free magazine subscription to Woman's Day through Mercury Magazines for a limited time. The freebie is sponsored by Vista Beauty & Spa and the subscription is for an entire year. This freebie is not going to last long. To get a free subscription to Woman's Day, share your name, email the size of the company you work for, the country you work in, your industry and job function. Depending on your answers, you may be offered up to three additional free magazine subscriptions related to your job. Mercury Magazine does a good job of matching potential subscribers to trade magazines. The catch is that the free trial period is usually much shorter (than the freebie).
Print this free BJ's membership pass and get into the warehouse club for 60 days without paying a dime. A one-year membership costs $50, so a two month free pass has a value of slightly more than $8. As a bonus, you will not have to pay a surcharge when you use this pass. Some "free membership" passes tack on a 5% or 10% surcharge to make up for the fact that you are not paying the membership fee. With this free BJ's pass, you only pay for what is in your cart. Steer clear of the worst deals at the warehouse club and instead go for the best warehouse deals. The free BJ's pass is good for 60 days and must be activated by July 5, 2011. Stop by the member services counter before you shop to redeem the free pass. Caveats: The free BJ's membership pass is good for new members only.

Join now and you'll be ready to save big during the Craftsman Club Saver Days -- April 16-23, 2011 -- when members get special discounts. One coupon per purchase. Caveats: Tool cash is not valid on gift cards, clearance, closeouts, special purchases, Everyday Great Price items, introductory offers or for purchases made at Kmart.com, Sears Auctions on eBay, outlets, or through a catalog.

Snag a pair of free glasses, prescription included, starting tomorrow, March 25, 2011, at noon, EST. That's when CoastalContacts.com is giving away 10,000 free pairs of glasses to U.S. residents. You pay for shipping, handling ($10-$15) and any upgrades (like tints, stronger prescriptions, anti-glare). Get your free glasses by "liking" the CoastalContacts Facebook page through the link above. Then click on the "Free Glasses" tab on the left to get your coupon code. (Note, if you are not on Facebook, use coupon code USAFREE). If you already liked the fan page, the code will show up automatically. Copy and paste that code into a safe spot, then use the tools at CoastalContacts.com to find a pair of glasses that fit. Plug in your coupon code as you check out to get your glasses for free.
The CoastalContacts website has been slow on past freebie days, so it's a good idea to pick out a few pairs today. Then wait to plug in the coupon and check out tomorrow, shortening the time you need to be on the site. If you have any problems, call customer service at 1-866-333-6888. If you or someone in your household already got a pair of free glasses from CoastalContacts, you are not eligible for this free glasses giveaway. Free glasses orders made from the same computer will be canceled.
Caveats: A select number of pairs are not eligible for the free promotion and will be marked as such. Free glasses come with 1.5 index lenses only. Sunglasses are not included in the free giveaway. All upgrades, including coatings, progressives, bifocals, tints and high index lenses are not included with this offer, but are available at 25% off.
