Free 411 Service

The Best Things in Life Are Free

The inside of my Dove dark chocolate wrapper tells me that the best things in life are chocolate, but I think the only things that give chocolate a run for its money are the things in life that are free. This Friday is all about the beauty of free, but you can use all of these great tips every day of the week.

  • Use 1-800-FREE411: Calling 411 is expensive and sometimes we just need immediate information, at any price. But with free information services there's no reason why your phone bill should suffer. 1-800-FREE 411 is kind of like GOOG-411 in that they're both available free of charge, but FREE has more amenities. My favorite is the accurate step-by-step driving directions sent via text message to your phone, versus GOOG's less direct tactic of sending a link to a map of your location. Check out their website for more details.
  • Come down with the travel bug? Have the week’s top travel deals delivered straight to your inbox.
  • If you've started tuning out the music that used to get you through your work day, check out new bands tailored to your music preferences and listen to them for free online.

Now, who has a tip for where I can get some free chocolate? That would really be a Friday treat.

I've been using 1-800-411-SAVE for a long time and it works for me very well. I dont regret spending a few seconds to listen to those advertisement because in return I get very good service and accurate phone numbers. Never did I have a bad experience. 411SAVE is a must try!

Hello girls! Based on my experience with directory assistance you either have to pay through your nose or have to listen to a dumb machine to get a listing. Why don't you try 800-411-SAVE which is supported by friendly and LIVE operators! Best of all... its completely free! :-P

Don't forget the free booze site geek posted yesterday. Unfortunately there are only 4 cities on there, but not bad.
