Do you search online to get free samples of stuff? What have you gotten this month. I got shampoo, coffee,perfume,conditioner,dog treats, and some cat food.

Excellent post here! You're looking a free sample fanatic! Even when companies aren't offering such promotions, I'll contact them and usually get something out of them. This month I've received all sorts of item including moisturizers, protein shakes, vitamins, ear plugs, laundry detergent, energy gels, it goes on and on. The best freebie offers are always posted in forums that pertain to this subject. Avoid other types of free sample sites as many are not quite legit.

Thanks for the great response. Yes I am one of those fanatics too. I check out many different sites and get lots of things free. I received in the mail yesterday that I had sent for 3-4 wks ago: A sample of Advil PM (2 pills) from Walmart. A sample of Herbal Essences conditioner & shampoo (0.34 fl.oz ea.) from Herbal Essences (coconut -it smells awesome) A sample 6 oz. bag of Naturals Plus vitamins & minerals Purina Cat chow from Purina. I can't wait to go to the mailbox and see what i get next as some things I have forgotten that I had sent away for them. It is like christmas. Use to, I hated going to the mailbox because all that is in there is bills.

I used to go to Freaky Freddie's website for free samples. That was years ago and just for fun I went back to see what offers were available. Every free sample was attached to some offer you have to pay for-you know-join a book club, send your information to some free e-mail newsletter, get mortgage rates...I was very disappointed-NOTHING IS FREE ANYMORE-not even free samples! Where do you find yours? Are you in the USA?

yes I am in the USA. I get free samples all the time. I don't go to sites that are like freaky freddie as those are out to get your money. Go to the first pg. and scan down I have listed some links like walmart and if you go to the name brand sites of things you might want you can check the special offers and usually they are giving free items sent in mail or coupons to get cents off or to print the coupon to get it free at the local store. Please come back and share with us what you find.

What are some good sites for searching for freebies. I usually only find sites that want you to commit to some sort of trial offer.

no stay away from those deals. If you see at the bottom of the offer some fine print and it says anything like you must complete some offers before receiving it, they aren't worth the time and you will be out money to get it. I am going to try to post some sites where I have found some freebies with no strings attached so everyone can get some free things too.

Thanks for sharing with the rest of us. I have been to some of these sites and they have some great samples. But everyone always watch the fine print and keep your money in your pocket. If it is free then it should come FREE to you. Hope you all enjoy your free samples.

try the walmart link above in this discussion, It does ask you what type you normally use but it is only like 3-4 questions not pages like on some I have seen. I am going to post some of the sites that I will be visiting tday when I get a chance. So if you find some also Please share with all of us here so we can enjoy them too.

Read the comments I have placed in other posts as I have listed links and told about some of the things I have received free. It is great when you get samples in the mail free. I will try to list some more links as I find them. I hope that you will also share with the rest of us too with what you find. Walmart has some free samples to give.

Hmm, well I have always gotten the ones I sent away for. But there is scam sites out there, so you have to be careful what you send for as they can harvest your address and send you tons of junk mail. I always have a junk email address that I use and they can send whatever by mail..My trash can come with a big mouth to devour them with..lol

Oh yes I love to get them and have gotten some just in time for when we traveled and they were the perfect size to use while away. I have given some to friends who were going on a trip and they couldn't believe i got them free.

I used to, then reckoned it was a bit wasteful unless I really wanted the sample, so I try to be a bit more restrained now

Yes I get lots of samples but they are things we really use and I have gotten some things when I first started doing this and I gave things to friends and relatives so nothing is wasted. But I do send only for things I really use and that is great that you do this. As there is many out there who send for it just to see if they will get it and then don't use it- what a waste.

I frequent www.community.livejournal.com/freestuffgalore Theres lots of freebies there. I even got a Senseo coffee pod FREE. Its SO neat. I always check out walmarts site for their freebies too. This month alone I have gotten Folgers coffee, shave gel, Viactiv chews, laundry soap, um ... I think that might be it.
