We all love free stuff, right? We’ve stumbled upon some pretty cool top-rated free things you can get online that you might not even know exist!
While scrolling through Reddit threads, we came across a fantastic free resource thread, so we decided to take a look and were amazed at what we found!
We took the opportunity to categorize and list websites and resources for you. Here are some of the best we found!
One Redditor said, “It’s a website that has compiled Psychology topics into easy to read modules. They have been compiled by psychology university professors to help facilitate free education for students. You can even download the ones you’re interested as a PDF as many times as you want. All of this is free!”
Another Redditor added, “Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library if you have a child younger than 5. They send an age-appropriate book once a month. It’s amazing! I have so many books for my daughter since I signed up, and she loves getting them in the mail!”
The Noun Project
A third Redditor suggested, “ The Noun Project has a wide selection of icons. I use them for presentations!
A final Redditor said, “Here are some free certifications and courses related to almost every field.”
One Redditor added, “Maybe not everyone, but for students Zotero is a lifesaver. It will store your sources, import them to a bibliography in whatever citation style you need, and even create in-text citations in your paper. It saves hours of work. And it integrates with google docs to auto populate your references.”
Terms of Service; Didn’t Read
Finally, “A free site for people too lazy to read the entire ToS.”

Just for Fun/Interests
One Redditor gave this free tool, “Flighttrader 24, It allows you to see plane traffic live.”
Another user said, “Unsplash is where you can get free photos of just about anything, provided by the photographers themselves, to do with what you like.”
10 Minute Mail
A user added, “Quick use and throw away emails for signing up for free trials and things of that nature.”
Gutenberg, Open Libray, & Archive
A fourth commentor said, “All three links contain free and borrowable eBooks.”
A user added, “Astronomer here! You can look up all the satellites flying over your house tonight, including the ISS, Hubble Space Telescope, those pesky Starlink satellites, and whatever else your heart desires, complete with star maps and precise timing.”
Another person said, “Last time this was posted, I learned about Letterboxing fun, free, outdoor activities.”
A car lover suggested, “ 1A Auto is a car parts supplier, but their videos show exactly what tools you need, what parts you need, and how to do a repair yourself.”
Another Redditor added, “It’s a Photoshop clone that is completely free (unintrusive side banner ad, can be removed by a one-time payment) and has all the basic features of Photoshop, using basically the same interface. If you’re used to Photoshop and just need to get something quick done, there’s nothing better out there.”

Small Business Needs
A small business owner said, “USPS and UPS both will deliver free packaging boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, etc. to your house. Literally doesn’t cost a thing and you can get like 50 boxes at a time.”
A second Redditor added, “ If you’re in the USA and you earn less than a certain amount of money — currently $69,000 — you can use the same software to file your taxes, and companies that sell you tax software are trying very hard to make it difficult to find. Don’t let them.”
An avid traveler said, “Skip Lagged for flights. It’s so good that United sued them and lost. They essentially exploit the pricing manipulation that airlines use. For example, if you want to go from Phoenix to Atlanta, sometimes a ticket from Phoenix to Ft. Lauderdale connecting through Atlanta is cheaper. This website finds those flights for ya. Just don’t check in a bag!”
One Redditor dropped this helpful piece of advice about Skip Lagged, “I used to work for American Airlines, if you do use this, make sure you have a completely separate reservation for your return flight. Once you miss a segment of your flight, airlines will usually cancel any other flights on that reservation because they assume you won’t make them either.”
Scotts Cheap Flights
Another traveler added, “scottscheapflights is another service like this. It specifically scans for extreme discounts, mistakes, and flights at odd hours.It’ll email you discounts it finds for the destinations and departure locations you mark, so if you want to fly out of LAX to Paris, Dubai, New York, or Budapest, it will not be sending you info on cheap flights to Nowhere, Indiana.”
Camel Camel Camel
Last, “Camel Camel Camel is really nice to track online Amazon prices to help you get the best deal. Also Black Friday is a myth and the sales aren’t good at all.”
Finally, “it’s literally people giving away stuff they don’t need/want anymore that they can’t/don’t care enough to sell.”
My 90s TV
A user shared, “This is more of a novelty website, but I think it’s pretty cool and you can lose yourself for hours with nostalgia. It basically uses YouTube videos to simulate watching TV in 90s and you can specify what year you want and what categories you want to see when you change channels.There is also a My 80s TV and a My 70s TV.”
The Internet Arcade
A second Redditor added, “You can play a lot of classic games along with the Console Living Room, which is similar. They have access to tons of old PC games too and you can even play the original Oregon Trail online.”
Top Class Actions
A third Redditor said, “Top Class Actions is basically a site that lists active class action lawsuits you might qualify for. I’ve used it for trivial things like suing red bull for a free case because it “didn’t give me wings” but on a serious note. It made me aware of the suit against Equifax for leaking my data. That should be a settlement worth over $100. It’s a cool way to hold corporations semi-accountable.”
A Redditor suggested Just Watch, “to locate which streaming services have your favorite shows.”
Finally, a user added, “Explore, live cameras to watch all kinds of wildlife.”
Redditors gave a ton of answers to this question and there are some great suggestions. What are some free things you take advantage of online?
