I saw a post on here for FreeSlings and just wondered if anyone ever gotten any of their products? I was going to get the nursing cover and it wanted me to pay shipping (like $12 bucks)so I wasn't sure if it was worth getting? Any feedback would be good... the similar cover at "babies r us" is like $44 bucks.

I posted that so I am curious as well--when I posted I saw that there were old, expired coupon codes on here for it. Has anyone gotten it on this deal or any past ones for the same thing?

I wonder if they are the same company that used to do "free udder covers, just pay shipping"... Sounds enough like it to post the whole story here -
Basically, that company pops up every so often with different names and slightly different products - nursing covers, slings, carrier covers, etc, and the offer is always "buy item that usually costs $25-$75 for ONLY shipping cost!". They have had issues in the past and been flagged repeatedly as a scam, just google "udder cover scam".

BUT, if you have a fairly disposable prepaid card, give it a shot. I had a Green Dot card with $10 and the shipping totals came up to $8, so I placed the order. I got my cover about a month after they said it should arrive, but I did get it, and it was just the cost of the cover, they did not make any extra charges on my card.
The cover was junk, but that's really a different issue.

Anyone else find it suspicious that all the people commenting in this threat have 0 rep and are brand new.

Hmm, promoting your own scam?

I have. I just had to pay for shipping. I wouldn't buy it if it wasn't free. You could make one with some fabric. But I think the shipping was like 12 dollars or something. And I have only used it a few times.

bbattag, it does sound like it is a real deal, but the quality of it does not sound as good as it is advertised from what ArtemisDeals and jpanddanielle said :/

@dealwagger - possibly. But based on the poor reputation of the company running it, I wouldnt trust giving them your credit card.
