Are you interested in trying the latest shampoo just about to hit the store shelves? If you are interested, but concerned about spending extra money on a product that you have never used before, try obtaining a free sample. Many companies offer free samples for their new products. If the company offers this sample, you can generally obtain one by submitting an online form.
There are hundreds of companies, many of them are even national brands, that offer free product samples to potential customers. Personally, I have received samples of soap, body wash, toothpaste, mouthwash, contact solution, perfume, feminine products, snacks and much more. Most companies offer you these free samples because they are aware of the fact that if you enjoy their product your are more likely to purchase the full size item. Often times, the companies try and make this easier by also including coupons in the package.
Finding free product samples on the internet is an fairly easy process. There are many online forums devoted just to finding free product samples. On one of those sites, someone who comes across a sample link will post it for other forum members to view. These forums are usually free to join.
One online message board that I visit daily is www.bigbigforums.com and membership is free. This site is amazing and full of helpful information and tips from other individuals who search for free product samples. There are over 50,000 different topics in the “freebie” section. Many board members search through previous postings of new items that they come across; therefore, preventing a lot of repeat messages. In addition, posters will often add a message when a free sample link has expired; this is great because you don’t have to spend all day searching for products. My favorite thing about the bigbigforums web page is if you place your mouse cursor over the link, without clicking it, the first few sentences of the post will appear. This feature can sometimes eliminate a potential free sample in seconds if the date has expired or if it is only available in certain states.
You can also try and obtain free product samples by directly visiting the company’s website. For instance, I have received samples by visiting the websites of the following companies: Dove, Renu, JLo Perfumes, Kraft Foods, Act Mouthwash, Suave, Beechnut, and Ensure.
One of my favorite company websites sites to receive free samples from is www.dove.com. Dove sells health and beauty products; such as, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap, lotion, deodorant, hair styling, and skin care products. Since I started requesting free samples, Dove has sent me samples of their bar soap, body wash, overnight skincare cream, deodorant, and foaming face pads. Dove is constantly cycling through many of their products to offer free samples to customer and these links can often be found right on their main page.
Another company that constantly offers free product samples or coupons to their customers is Procter & Gamble. Procter & Gambles carries products like Pantene, Secret, Sure, Olay, Swifter, Tide, Crest, Pampers, Mr. Clean, Iams, and many more brands. Procter & Gamble is famous for constantly putting ads and coupon booklets in your local papers. Their company website is www.brandsaver.com. This website is full of free samples and coupons to print off. With Procter & Gamble, you are required to fill out an address form to receive your product or coupons; however, sometimes they will ask you to complete a mini-survey about their products and your needs.
When you are trying to obtain free product samples from a web pages, remember to never give out unnecessary information. As crazy as it may seem, some people have encounter scams from people trying to obtain an individual’s personal information. Many companies require that you fill out a form containing your name, age, address, phone number, and workplace. Other companies may go further in-depth asking if you have any children and possibly their ages; many times this is done to develop a “target market” for their products. When requesting free product samples, never give out your social security number, credit card numbers, or any bank account information. These products are free and there is no reason why a company should have this type of information.
Obtaining free product samples is a great way to be introduced to a product that you may have otherwise never tried. Requesting free samples from companies is fairly easy. Free samples are fun and useful coupons are often mailed with the samples. To everyone searching for free product samples good luck. It is fun and exciting when that new product sample arrives.
