I've received responses from lots of people who are applying for and receiving their free stuff. That's great. I've also heard from a couple of people who said they've tried to get free stuff only to find out the offer isn't good anymore. Some items do have a limited supply available. I try to stay away from them, but sometimes it's not clear that the supply is limited. So I apologize for anyone not getting a free item because supplies ran out. Remember: ”Free“ sometimes means ”as long as supplies last.“
