I received a harlequin book for free from the company.  It does not say ARC on it and it has a bar code.  But it does say free gift on the front.  I'm thinking its okay to post but wasnt sure. 

What do you all think?  Is it postable or not?

Yes. I understand what you are talking about. They are actual published copies given away as bribes to keep you buying the books :)

I'd say yes it is postable.

yep,  new children's book series do the same-- just show up in the mail with ad info on buying the series.  Also books received free in Kids' meals at fast food restaurants will say something similar. They all have ISBNs and usually match the same book for sale in bookstores except for the line about being free.
