Just think of all the things you have to pay for on a daily basis: food, coffee, gas, the list goes on and on. It all adds up, which is probably why everyone (us here at The Money Manual included) goes so gaga for free stuff.

Our go-to list for the best for freebies includes the usual suspects like Whole Foods, but did you know that there is actually a ton of great free stuff available on Amazon? Yup, you heard that right, and we’ve rounded up all our favorites.

1. Watch Movies and TV Shows For Free On Prime Video

No more going to the movies to pay $23 for the pleasure of sitting in an uncomfortable seat next to a crying baby. You can stream thousands of TV shows and movies for free on your phone, your computer, and even some offline on Amazon. So queue up your favorite movies and start binging on Amazon now.

While you’re watching movies, why not make some extra money? Market research companies like InboxDollars will pay you to complete surveys and play games on your phone.

Get a free $5 welcome bonus when you sign-up for InboxDollars, and start earning easy money while you binge watch TV!

2. Free Groceries Delivery With Amazon Fresh

Why drag yourself to the grocery store, when you can get all of your favorite groceries delivered for free. Beyond getting the groceries delivered for free you can get $25 off your first order using the code Fresh25. Amazon is basically paying you to do your grocery shopping. All you have to do is sign-up to Amazon Fresh for free.

Another one of our favorite ways to get great deals on groceries is by downloading Ibotta! With the app simply shop as you normally would, take a picture of your receipt and they’ll credit you for any eligible purchases. Some of the best deals I’ve seen are getting paid 75 cents to buy milk, $5 for beer and $1 for pasta, pretty sweet, right?

To help you get started, Ibotta is offering a massive $10 bonus for new users!

3. Get a Free Baby Sample Box

Complete a Baby Registry on Amazon and make over $10 of purchases from the registry (or have gifters do it) and Amazon will surprise you with a box chock full of a selection of gifts for both baby and parents. Did we mention the baby box is entirely free? Start a free Amazon baby registry and you’ll be well on your way to a free baby registry welcome box.

Another one of our favorite ways for parents to get freebies is by joining the EverydayFamily community which provides resources for parents from preconception to preschool and beyond. The best part? They send members of their community free stuff!

Sign-up for free, and get access to free baby samples, baby coupons, baby magazines and more!

4. Use Amazon Music To Stream And Download Music For Free

Not only can you download music from Amazon for free, but you can stream music for free too on Amazon Music. Amazon offers tens of thousands of free MP3 downloads and you can stream over two million songs with no advertisements. Hooray for not having to listen to an ad for the best dog food in between songs anymore!

5. An Audible Free Trial

If you aren’t a reader and would prefer to have an audio version of a book, Amazon offers Audible. You have the chance to sign up to Audible for free in addition to getting two free audiobooks to start you off.

6. Get Free Kindle eBooks Every Month

Amazon has the amazing perk of letting people borrow one new book on their Kindle every month for free out of the huge number of books in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. This library consists of bestsellers, too, so now you can finally get caught up on the hot books people can’t stop talking about.

7. Get Prime Pantry For Free Shipping On Your Every Day Essentials

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to run around from store to store looking for the best prices on things your family uses the most – things like laundry detergent and hand soap? Sign up to Amazon Pantry for free to get pretty incredible prices on non-perishable household goods you depend on. Think things like toiletries, cleaning supplies, snacks, drinks and so much more. Sign-up for a free 30-day trial and you’ll even get $10 off your first order when you use the code PANTRY at checkout.

Our other favorite way for getting great deals on every day essentials is by using Ebates. Get cash back every time you shop at your favorites stores including Walmart, Kohl’s and Macy’s, anywhere from 2 to 15% or your purchase! It’s that easy.

Sign-up for Ebates and start getting cash back when you shop online and you’ll earn $10 right off the bat

8. Amazon Prime Student Free Trial

To be a part of Amazon Prime Student program, all you have to be is, well, a student. If you have an email address tied to a school, you can sign up for Amazon Prime Student for six months free. Free shipping, free TV shows and movies, college discounts, and much more, will be at your fingertips.

If you want to cancel your subscription, which you won’t want to do, you can do it any time, entirely for free. Once your trial ends, you’ll pay just $5.49 per month for Prime – that’s over 50% off.

9. Sign-Up For Free Sample Boxes

There are a number of sample boxes available on Amazon filled with things like beauty supplies, coffee and tea, dog treats and more. While you do have to pay upfront for the box, Amazon gives you a credit for that amount, making it essentially free. Some of our favorite boxes include the Daily Beauty Sample Box, Nutrition and Wellness Sample Box, and the Snack Sample Box. So many goodies.

10. Free Cloud Storage For Your Most Important Files

Backing up files is super easy with the cloud. Amazon Drive gives you free access to 5 GB of storage for free. Photos, videos, albums and your most important files, can be uploaded and stored this way.

Sign-up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime and you’ll have access to unlimited photo storage, too.

11. Get Free Stuff Just For Reviewing Products

Amazon has a program called Amazon Vine that allows people to obtain a huge number of items in order to write honest reviews. In order to participate in the program, you have to be invited, which is the only downside we can see. So start engaging more on Amazon and writing non-biased reviews for the things you are already buying, and the e-commerce giant might just notice and invite you to join the program.

12. Free Apps Galore

There is a huge number of free apps available to download on Amazon ranging from Minecraft to apps perfect for kids including PAW Patrol Rescue Run. So what are you waiting for? Get downloading!
