I frequently see commercials for free samples for a variety of products, from food items to beauty care, household cleaners to incontinence, there is a free sample for everyone out there. I scout out freebies a couple times a month to be delivered to my home, mostly via internet forms which take just a moment to fill out.
So why do I love free samples so much? Here are my top four reasons:
4. Products You Have Never Tried, and Never THOUGHT about Trying
If you are getting something for free, there is no risk in trying it. You might receive a free sample in the mail for a product you never considered trying, but find it’s very useful or tastes delicious, for example, and you might want to buy it again. It might even be something that makes your life easier such as a new cleaning product.
3. It’s Easy
There are literally dozens and dozens of sites on which you can find multiple free samples. I love MySavings.com and TheFreeSite.com and find they are two of the easiest sites to find the best samples. The links usually work as well, which can be a problem with some free sample sites that are not updated regularly or maintained well.
All you really have to do is visit a few sites and fill in similar forms at each site, and voila — free stuff delivered straight to your home. Most computers have the feature to remember the information you entered so it makes filling these out a breeze. There are also other programs, such as Robo-Form, that will remember specific information and make filling out the forms very simple and quick.
When companies send free samples in the mail they often provide one or more coupons for the product. That way, if you happen to love the product, it’s extra incentive for consumers to purchase the product, especially when it might be a bit pricier without a coupon and competing with generic brands that often work just as well.
1. Hello, THEY ARE FREE! … and I am cheap!
Yes, it’s true. I am very frugal and love to save money. With free samples of soaps and shampoos I can save money by using the free samples not only in my home, but it makes it easier to pack for vacations as well. If you take free samples, there is less product to take, less mess (you can throw away the containers), and you get to try out awesome new products! I LOVE FREE STUFF!
So, check out some freebie sites now to save money with coupons and free items, and try new products you might not have bought, all risk-free and without any monetary cost to you.
