How to get around free trials!
So we have all been there, see an app or website and they always want to give you a free 7 day, 10 day or 30 days to use their services, which is all fine until it comes time to pay. Most services do require you to put a credit card on file during the free trial and if you don’t cancel during the trial period they will charge your card. But there are some that will allow you to just use your email to sign up and as long as you can validate that email, you can use their services. This is where we come in to help!
Instead of creating multiple email accounts and keeping track of username and passwords for each account, you can simply use an emailing forwarding service. This allows you to easily create emails on the fly without remembering the exact email address and password to log in to get your validation codes. What? Okay we know that sounds confusing, but hear us out. Lets say you are singing up for a 30 day trial period that requires your email, you then give it your email address, have to go log into that email address and click a link or give it a validation code. After that 30 days you want to “trick” the system and get another 30 days, so you run over and create a whole new email account and do the same thing, but now you have to remember that username and password.
Well instead of creating multiple accounts you can use a service like https://www.33mail.com/ to forward your emails for you so all you have to do is remember one email account and you can validate any code that is sent to you. Here is a clip from their website that explains how to use it.

“Next time you visit a website that asks for your email address, instead of giving them your real email address, just make one up especially for them. For example, if the website is blahblah.com, you might give them email@example.com.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to do anything else, we’ll create an alias automatically the first time they try to send you an email, and we’ll forward any emails they send to you.
Later, if blahblah.com start to send you emails you don’t want, or even if they sell your email address to a spammer, just click on the link that we add to the top of every email we forward, we’ll kill their alias, and they won’t bother you any more.”
What I normally do is say the website is buynow.com I use my email at 33mail.com as firstname.lastname@example.org and it will send it to my real email address so I can validate the code or link that they send me.
So using this method any site or service that does not require you to secure the account with a credit card can be easily worked around to use the service for free without the hassle of creating multiple email accounts.
