Send occasional faxes for free

April 14, 2011

Every once in a while you come across an organization who just will not accept an email and requires a faxed form. But who wants to go to a Kinkos to send a fax? You can send them online for free with hellofax.

Hellofax gives you 5 free fax pages for free as a trial (down from 20 when the LifeHacker article was posted). After that you have to choose a plan. There is a free plan that gives 5 pages per month for free; after that you pay $1.99 per fax.

I tested hellofax this morning; it was a very simple process. I used a Word document, but the site claims it can send any kind of file. I sent the test fax from home to the copier at work, which will also send faxes. When I got to work this morning, there it was.

There are lots of web-based fax services and many offer free trial faxes. Hellofax seems to be the only one that continues to provide a few free faxes per month using uploaded documents. While I may not need this kind of service at work, I expect it will turn out to be convenient at home or on the road. Give it a try!

This tidbit came to us from LifeHacker – Hellofax Sends the Occasional Fax For Free. If you’re not familiar with the popular LifeHacker blog check it out, their motto is “Tips, tricks, and downloads for getting things done.”
