All of these offers require access to the internet and a device, like a computer, phone, or tablet. Some of them are trials which means you’ll be charged monthly after your free trial is over. You can cancel all of them before the trial is over to avoid future billings. I put a reminder in my calendar a few days before my debit card will be charged.
You can also get two craft kits created for girls ages 7-12 for just $10 total from Annie’s Creative Girls Club.
