I decided to try one of those Get Free Samples in the mail advertisements. I signed up, gave them my pertinent information took their surveys and wa-la, I got hit with over 2,000 email spams to buy products To date I have not received any of these so called free samples in the mail and have spent a lot of time unsubscribing, blocking and deleting spam. Has this ever happened to you?

i signed up for one a couple months ago and received my samples, they were good ones mostly too. I think it was called Coolsavings. I signed up for one here on the offers page so we will see how that goes.

@sherryeb I have had at times an increase in spam. But my husband says that is probably due to the few survey sites that I've signed up for.

I did try surveys awhile back you almost have to have a separate email account to handle al of the spam and emails from those, I spent more time getting rid of the junk mails than taking the surveys ha ha...seriously though I made a few bucksbut these discussions are more fun@Susan2015

I've tried once before but it started asking too much information and I backed out.

@sherryeb They really can and I don't want everyone having my email or my phone number.

They always want so much information and keep going on and on that I never complete them. Thanks for the warning about email spam.
