Clik – A new app that lets you control any screen (with a browser) from your iPhone or Android

A new app called Clik has just launched and it lets you sync your phone with any screen that is connected to a browser. So far, the main purpose of Clik is to instantly watch YouTube videos on a computer, TV, tablet, or other screen with internet connection, and control them through your iPhone or Android. In other words, you can turn your phone into a remote control! In addition, your Iphone or Android does NOT need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network!

Here are the simple directions for how to set Clik up:

1. Download Clik for your iPhone or Android, and open the app.

2. You will be prompted to visit www.Clickthis.com on your TV, computer, or tablet browser.

3. Point your phone’s camera toward the screen at the code that is displayed. It will connect almost instantly.

4. You are now ready to go! The app’s screen will have changed to allow you to control  YouTube videos from your phone. Go ahead and select one, and it will begin playing on the computer, TV, or tablet you are synced with! If you select Muliplayer Mode, then more than one user can connect and control what is played. You can fast-forward, change videos, search, share on Facebook and Twitter, and more! After closing the app or browser, the next time you want to sync you will need to follow this same process to re-connect, but it only takes seconds!

Clik is an amazing app, and its ability to sync your phone to another screen in seconds is remarkable. Download Clik to try it out now, and let us know what you think in our comments section below!

$10 check mailed to you at no cost.

This is the confirmation screen I got after going through the quick process. -- Josh

NOTE: This offer is no longer available. It lasted a month, but most free offers do eventually end. If you want to stay up to date on free offers, please follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.

A new service called Serve wants to compete with PayPal, and to get new customers they are offering $10 that you can request today as a check. Serve is owned by American Express so this is 100% legitimate.  You need to be 18 years of age or older and have a U.S. address. We haven’t tested the sign-up process on mobile.

It takes about 10 minutes to complete the whole process and get a $10 check mailed to you:

  1. Go to Serve.com and signup for a free account.
  2. Note that when entering date of birth use this format 10/10/1910. We had some issues with that. Also it seems like they don’t like special characters in the password so use letters (including at least one upper case) and numbers. Remember not to use the same password as your email and don’t use easy passwords.
  3. Confirm your account with the code they send to your email.
  4. You may need to logout and then log back into your account once you confirmed your email.
  5. You will see that a $10 credit has been applied to your account.
  6. Now you can request a $10 check at no cost.

Note that by signing up for an account you will receive a Serve Pre-Paid Reloadable Card to access your Serve funds and make purchases across the U.S. wherever American Express Cards are accepted. I don’t know if signing up for an account results in a credit check, but my understanding is that it doesn’t.

@free doesn’t get anything for mentioning this offer, we just thought it was pretty cool.  –  Josh

Simple way to get cash back on your online purchases.

By Josh Davis

Ebates gives you a percentage of your purchases back in the form of cash.

  • You still shop at your favorite online stores.
  • There are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees.
  • You just sign-up, and then when you want to purchase something from your favorite site, you just go to Ebates first and click on their the store link.

It takes less than a minute to sign-up, and they are even offering a bonus $10 gift card once you make a qualified purchase through their site.

Click here to sign-up.

(Note, we get a small referral bonus when you use our link and signup. If you enjoy the free offers we share, this helps us keep sharing them.)

If you want to understand how I use it, here is quick walk-through:

  • When I want to make a purchase at an online store, I go to Ebates and see if that store is featured (They feature 1,200 stores).
  • If it is, I use their link to go to the merchant web site.
  • I make the same purchase I would make anyway.
  • I get a percentage of the purchase back as cash to my Ebates account.

It is that simple.  I use the service, because it only take a couple clicks, and I get cash back for purchase I would make anyway.

Thanks to Debbi Johanning for reminding me of this cool tip just in time for the holidays.

Now is the perfect time to sign-up. Takes less than a minute.
