Freebies & Discounts


What are freebies?  Freebies are products, services, information, or opportunities that site visitors who "Join Us" as Account Holders may receive at no charge, though for some options, shipping/mailing and handling fees may apply. If you are not an Account Holder, "Join Us" to become eligible to win or receive freebies.
Products, Services & Opportunities
When producers and merchants of Maryland goods as well as our advertisers, sponsors, and partnering organizations ask our assistance in distributing freebies, we encourage inclusion of Account Holders in the distribution.  Freebies may include product sample, promotional item, gift, admission, and service offers.  If shipping and handling applies, you will be alerted of the offer details and asked to “opt in” if you wish to participate.
Account Holders
Accounts are free.  Account Holders typically "Join Us" to become eligible for the freebies described above, to save Buy Maryland Directory search results, to receive information and promotional offers from us, and/or to become members of Maryland With Pride.  Our members are adult, private individuals as well as representatives of their own businesses or their places of employment.  Not an Account Holder?  Join Us.  Our Account Holders include:
               Consumers & Professional Buyers/Procurement Officers
               Makers & Merchants of Maryland Goods
               Partnering Organizations, Sponsors & Advertisers

Maker & Merchant Maryland With Pride Memberships 
An automatic, first three months free trial period applies to all Maryland With Pride memberships, including Buy Maryland Directory Only Packages and All Inclusive Packages for makers and merchants of Maryland goods that are approved for listings in the directory.  Not listed?  Join us.  There is no obligation to continue beyond the free period, and some applicants may be eligible for an extended free listing or membership. 
Frequent Buyer Wows -- Coming in 2020!  
Tell us in 25 words or less what (brands or broad categories), why (taste, quality, convenience, more), where (name names or feel free to generalize the locality), and how often (your choice of words) you “Buy Maryland” goods from producers or merchants listed in the Buy Maryland Directory, and we will enter your name in our quarterly Frequent Buyer Wows drawings.  We may also ask your permission to quote you in Maryland With Pride venues.  Each winner receives a prize provided by a participating Maryland With Pride organization.  
Monthly Prize Drawings 
Account Holders are automatically considered for monthly drawings for prizes contributed by participating Buy Maryland Directory organizations and may receive or unsubscribe from promotional emails from awarding organizations.  We may also ask your permission to announce that you have won. 
Quarterly & Special Notices
Account Holders may receive by email our free newsletter on our plans and accomplishments and our free consumer or business-to-business shopping guides featuring Maryland products.  Occasionally, we may also reach out to you with a special invitation or FYI.
