Who doesn't love free stuff? I know, foolish question. The phrase, if it's free it's for me, comes to mind. The Wish app is filled with the good, the bad, and the ugly which is why it has become so popular. You are never quite sure what is going to arrive at your doorstep when you order. The prices on Wish vary greatly, with the general trend being that the items are suspiciously cheap. So cheap, some items are free.

I have bought "free" items on Wish before which resulted in some hits and misses. The items are not completely free, you do have to pay for shipping. When it comes to that shipping, the shipping times vary. I have had items come in within two weeks of ordering and some took almost two months. I got some "free" Halloween items that made the holiday a bit more festive.

When looking for these "free" items, patience is needed. You can search the word free, but not everything in the results will be free. On top of that, items listed as free may not actually be free. If the item has a variety of options, it's more likely that only a few of those options are free.

However, you can find some hidden treasures with the free listings. There are quite a few items that I got for Halloween that were even better than I thought they would be.
