The Gmail Trick: How to use Gmail to get infinite free food

A common method of getting free food is signing up for restaurants’ newsletters/email clubs. To entice you to join, many will offer a welcome gift, often a coupon for substantially discounted or free food. Here’s how you can sign up as many times as you want without having to create a new email address:

Assuming your email is FreeFoodGuy@gmail.com, the following are valid aliases you can submit–they’ll count as different email addresses in most systems, but all will forward to FreeFoodGuy@gmail.com:

Free.FoodGuy@gmail.com

FreeF.oodGuy@gmail.com

FreeFoo.dGuy@gmail.com (you get the idea–the inclusion of periods anywhere)

FreeFoodGuy@googlemail.com

FreeFoodguy+askdhsak@gmail.com

FreeFoodguy+asidsahfa@gmail.com (any text after a + sign).

 

And thus, with one email address, you can sign up for a newsletter as many times as you want.
