Co-founder, Bryan with Annie and partner.

If you're new to the Freeya family, you may be wondering about all this *new* free stuff in the Freeya feed. Well, the free bike lights, records, bread, coffee, drills, etc. are a part of our extra special business relationships around Portland. These collaborations are meant to be mutually beneficial in growing each of our communities. We are working hard to spread the word about Freeya in a way that supports neighborhood businesses. We hope you find #thatfreeyafeeling out there!

Here's Bryan with two of our business partners from Solabee.
Around HQ, we call this the Freeya Car. We're very ready to call this your car! Details here.

Share Freeya posts

Did you know that you can share Freeya items with friends, outside the app? Use the shareable link feature to post with friends on BuyNothing, Facebook, Nextdoor, etc. Simply use the link in your post and it will take them directly to your item. We’ve been using the language “Manage pickup with Freeya”.

App fixes! Android 1.0.3 and iOS 1.0.8

  • Feed pictures on iOS will be less blurry
  • Making changes to your Pickup Location should be easier now! Previously, you could not edit a Pickup Location once you had live items in the feed.
  • Clicking 'item unavailable' will now end your pickup, and also take that item off the feed! Phew. There's also an additional button for "Item wasn't what I was expecting", in case you show up and decide you don't want the item after all.
  • Confirmed Pickup Requests: Previously you could only see the Poster's name and contact info once you have a confirmed pickup request. Now you can also see a map showing the general area where the pickup will be. Have no fear, you will get the specific address once your Pickup Window begins.

What’s coming?

  • App updates to fix bugs that y’all are helping us find.
  • More Friends of Freeya partnerships every week for the next 4+ weeks
  • More Giveaway winners! The NUGGET COUCH is up next!
  • More treasures #foundonfreeya! We hope that as word spreads about FREEYA, more will join the party and get things moving off of your porches a little quicker. Tell your friends and of course, drop a note to if you’re experiencing any issues. We’re standing by!
