freebies for the 4th!
The 4th of July and freedom go hand in hand. There's freedom of speech, the freedom to run around with sparklers and the freedom to celebrate our country's birthday. But did you know "freedom" also means tons of free goodies? A number of nationwide chains are offering up great freebies or half price deals to celebrate Independence Day this year.
If you plan on picking up a new sofa or maybe just a couple of throw pillows, take the family to your local Ikea store where kids eat free. Unlike most kids eat free deals there is no purchase necessary, meaning mom and dad don't have to buy anything. Just bring your child (under 12 years old) in to get their free meal. Clearly, whoever said, "There is no such thing as a free lunch" never took their kids to Ikea on the 4th of July, or if they did they took them to the Houston Ikea where this offer is not valid.
