Do I Qualify for Free Materials?

While anyone can order the items that are listed at no charge from the Carolinas Poison Center, we also provide a certain amount of materials at no charge to the public and to public health agencies and organizations. These free orders are meant to help other non-profit agencies educate about poison prevention.

If you are a corporation or other for-profit business...
unfortunately, you are not eligible for free materials or free shipping.


If you are an individual ordering ONLY a free parent, babysitter, senior, or Spanish pack...enter coupon code free in the floating cart or on the Billing Information page when you are ready to check out from the store. This will allow you free shipping on your prevention packs. Each person can receive a MAXIMUM OF 4 FREE PACKS by ordering 4 of the same pack OR ordering a mix of 4 different packs. If you need more than 4 packs, please order and pay for each item in the pack individually.
Note: If you order more than 4 prevention packs in any combination, you will receive only 4 packs. If you are ordering packs with any other items, the "free" shipping code cannot be used, but the packs will still be free.


If you are an individual requesting poison prevention materials for a community or church-based health fair, presentation, or for personal use and are NOT affiliated with a healthcare organization, safety agency, or corporation...enter coupon code cpc when you are ready to check out from the store. This will entitle you to $20 of free materials. Please note that shipping charges and tax still apply. Click on the "Shipping Information" tab to find out more about shipping charges.
