Where to Find FREE Samples

One thing I'm learning about my readers is that you LOVE, LOVE, LOVE free product samples. Who doesn't? Free samples are a great way to try new products without purchasing them and possibly wasting your money if you don't like them. But where do you find free samples? There are several places to look.
  1. Manufacturers' Websites - You can often get free samples directly from the manufacturer. Usually there are limited numbers of products available, so you have to be among the first to register. Hunting through all of the manufacturers' websites would take a lot of time, so the best way to seek these out is to keep reading frugal blogs. We try to post links to manufacturers' free samples as soon as we see them.

  2. Sign up for company newsletters, emails, and mailing lists. You never know when a great free sample will arrive in your mailbox or email inbox! Many companies will offer you a free sample as an incentive to register for their website or newsletter. For example, if you register now for the Eat Better America newsletter (HERE), you'll receive a free sample of Nature Valley's new Granola Nut Clusters and a Chewy Trail Mix Bar.

  3. Sign up with free sample companies. These are companies that work with manufacturers to get free samples into your hands. Here are a few for you to try:

    Remedy Life - Free Healthy Living Product Samples

    Quality Health - Free Healthy Product Samples

    Quality Health - Free Fall Product Samples

    Quality Health - Samples for Diabetics

    Planning Family - Baby Coupons & Samples

    Shop4Freebies - New Freebies Added Daily -I just put a graphic for this in my right sidebar. You can use it to check what's been added each day.

  4. Check the In Stores Now section of the Walmart website (HERE). They often add new free samples.

  5. Sign up with A Full Cup (HERE). They have a wonderful Target coupon generator, but they also have a Forum area where people post deals, samples, and freebies that they find around the Internet.

One last thing to keep in mind... Always use a free email account from Yahoo, Google, etc. when you sign up for company newsletters, websites, or other freebies. You don't want your personal email account to be flooded with information from companies. But do check the free account occasionally. Companies will email you new free sample offers from time-to-time, and you don't want to miss those!
