Many people absoutely love getting free samples of new products or favorite products they’ve used for years. The most widely available free samples are for baby products, shampoos and conditioners, body washes, perfume, and feminie hygeine products. However, you can find even more free samples for other items both popular and obscure. I have received free samples of everything from free music downloads to coupons for free candles, and even a free bag of dog food. Its really just a matter of knowing where to look.
Sometimes the best way to receive free samples, is to request them directly from the manufacturers. You can contact manufacturers by phone or email to request samples. If you see a commercial or print ad for a new product, call the manufacturers 1-800 number to ask if they can offer a free sample before you buy, most likely they will. Websites also oten have offers for free samples. By signing up for a mailng list, you give companies a means to send you a variety of great stuff through the mail on a regular basis. In my experience, most companies are happy to give out free samples to those interested in their products. You may want to start your search with these wesites:
Proctor and Gamble
You can also find great free samples through retailers. Many stores have in store product displays that offer free samples right in store. Your local grocery storeslike Kroger or HEB often hand out free food samples. Walmart has begun holding into store events typically on Saturdays where they hand out free samples. You should also go to retailer websties to look for free samples. Walmart has a page dedicated to free samples they send by mail and there is always at least 3 or 4 different offers everytime I visit.
Third party search engines can also be a great way to find samples and a means to find a variety of different offers in one place. Beware that giving out your address or email on the websites can lead to a lot of junk but I’ve found it helpful to create a junk email account to use soley for this purpose. Also, be smart about giving out personal information and never give out credit card numbers or banking information. I reccomend these websites:
All free samples-
Shop 4 Freebies
Finally, many people don’t realize that their doctor can be a great source for free samples. You may be used to your dentist commonly handing you out toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste, but probably haven’t realized almost all docotrs have free samples available. My family pediactrician is always happy to send me home with a vareity of free samples like baby formula, sunscreen, children’s tylenol, pediasure, and first aid supplies. Almost all doctors receive samples to hand out to their patients for marketing purposes, all you need to do is ask.
