If you're a regular con-goer, you already know about all the swag you can get at conventions, but what's the best way to maximize your take?

Cons vary in size, but larger ones like San Diego Comic-Con have hundreds of booths, dozens of which give away freebies. It's easy to get overwhelmed, so stick to your guns, and keep that desire to get as much free stuff as possible burning.

You can't just walk into a con expecting to collect all the free goodies by meandering aimlessly. No, you need a well-thought-out plan that details how to get free stuff at conventions without working too hard. Study up, and all the limited edition buttons and posters will be yours!
