Getting free samples
July 21, 2010 12:12pm CST
Hi, I was doing some research on the internet in the last couple of days about ordering free samples such as perfume, food, gift cards, etc from different kind of sites. I tried mostly some Canadians sites and I am hoping to receive some free samples in my mailbox shortly. I am hoping that these promotions are not scams and that they do really send free stuff for some products. I haven't received anything yet, but I have read some forums that people are happy for what they are getting. I was interested in a sample about a Gillette products for men ( shaver, cream, etc). It looks like a nice kit and I wanted to order that sample. However, after clicking on the link I got a message stating that the samples have been requested and there are no more samples available for now and also it says that I can register and be one of the first member to receive news about new samples. I have been disappointed because I tried to order other samples and I got the same message that there are no more samples available. I am just not lucky, I don't think that these offers are scams. I wonder if anyone here have got some free samples and what are the best websites available to international ( USA, Canada, etc). If you have good samples, I hope you enjoyed them.

I get free samples all the time from websites. Just don't ever pay for anything they send you because most companies will give you a free sample if they are legit. I got a coupon for a free Digornio pizza around two weeks ago. I usually save all the samples they send so when we go on trips we can use them instead of taking big bottles or lotion, shampoo, etc. Another thing you can do is attend free home shows in your area, or free immunization clinics for kids, they give out alot of free stuff to try out. I check the newspapers for free events when possible. Try "Hey, it's Free" that is one of the website I use, and I know Wal-Mart has some too but like you said they usually run out soon.

Hi, Here in Quebec, Canada I doubt there are free home shows about giving free samples. However, the other day, about a month ago, I was shopping at Walmart and there was this guy selling expensive knives and he was saying that the knives are good quality. I just took the sample knife for free, it has a value of 5$ CAD and the whole kit that he was selling was like 40$ instead of 129,99$ CAD. I didn't want to buy the kit, I just took the little knife for free and yes it does cut very well a tomato or other delicate fruit.

Free samples are my passion and I have gotten some really great stuff in the mail! the key to fnding the legit stuff is to use your common snese. If it sounds to good to be true it probably is. Don't give out personal info, all that good stuff. I have gotten free products such as pizza, feminine hygenie, baby formula, razors, and more. I have gotten magazine subscriptions, a golf club, t shirts, and gift cards! Plus, I have joined many email sites and newsletters and gotten great freebies to do it. I like the site www.freesampleforager.com and www.freestufftimes.com. Both sites ensure that the stuff is totally free and legit and it is where I have fotten the majority of my freebies. Plus freestufftimes is updated all day long so it is pretty fast to get the news out there. I have gotten hundreds of dollars in great freebies, so keep your eyes open and your search going. There are many good items out there and they can be yours without a cost!
