What's the best Intercom alternative with a generous free tier?

I'm looking for a simple customer support tool for a low traffic project. I need just an on-site chat bubble + the option of replying asynchronously by e-mail. Intercom is great for that, but pretty expensive.

    Give Freshdesk a spin. It has quite a generous free tier. And the best part is that it has a lot more functionality compared to Intercom. So, you get email, social media, and chat support as well.

    It has a generous free tier and is extremely easy to use. I prefer it over Crisp because of the UI (both the chat and admin UIs are well though of).
