Meet The Freebie Guy, The Mega-Influencer of Discount Shopping

EntSun News/10870056
DALLAS - EntSun -- Meet The Freebie Guy. He has become a national cult phenomenon with over 6 million followers across his social media channels at @thefreebieguy (1.1M followers on Instagram alone!). He is the leading influencer in Extreme Clearance Shopping, providing cost-saving tips, best deals, birthday freebies, and newest sweepstakes and giveaways. He is a celebrity wherever he goes with people stopping him for selfies. He also donates his incredible finds monthly to charities that help with children and single mothers and inspires his friends and followers across the nation to do the same.

Known as Kendall Motzny by family members and childhood friends, Motzny grew up in poverty in Corsicana, Texas, raised by a single mom who did the best she could. He quickly learned at a young age that he could call 1-800 numbers (and only those, since they were free!) and ask for more information and samples from companies, and a lot of time they would actually send it!

As he matured, so did his shopping techniques to include couponing, sweepstakes, clearance sales, and giveaways. He was really good at it and shared his numerous finds on social media.  His audience grew, and now it's his full-time job.

However, he keeps his childhood life at heart and believes that every child should have gifts for their birthday and holiday season. Throughout the year, he buys candy and toys to pass out to North Texas charities and low-income communities. In the last year, he has donated to Hope Center for Autism, Dwell with Dignity, Communities in Schools, Jonathan's Place, and Mission Arlington, to name a few. He shares his philanthropic efforts on social media, and the generosity has sparked a chain reaction across the United States.

"I bought 777 school supplies on clearance for only $60 total and then donated the items to Communities in Schools of Greater Tarrant County," said Kendall. "There are so many other people following me who are now doing the exact same thing in their local community. It is amazing."

Kendall smiles, "I ask myself daily if this is real life, and it is. It is a dream come true."
