Why Get Free Samples?

Posted on April 11th, 2012 by Freebie Felicia

My husband asked me this question after checking our mail yesterday. I think he was slightly annoyed at how full our mail box was, but then I thought that this may be a question several of you may ask or several of your significant others ask. Maybe you’re thinking a little sample isn’t enough to do anything, but to the contrary, there are several benefits to samples.

1. Free stuff. Yes, this is obvious. But you can even get full size freebies sometimes. A lot of time these come from coupons for them. But yes, there are full size samples. I have also been able to get enough laundry soap samples this week alone for 4 loads of laundry. For someone single or with a small family, that may be a whole week’s laundry.

2. Coupons, coupons, coupons. I have yet to see a sample that didn’t include a really good coupon. They are usually high dollar and usually have a while to expire. Don’t just throw away those packages!

3. Try new products. A lot of free samples come from new products. Every heard of try before you buy? Samples make this possible. You would hate to buy a full size of something just to find out you hate it. So many samples I have received, I never would have bought. Then I used my sample and it was great!

My favorite samples are laundry detergent, what is yours?

    I’ve only received one detergent sample so far. I love my free razor I recieved in the mail though. 🙂 I haven’t signed up for any magazine freebies because I wouldn’t know what to do with them.

    What are the websites that we can use to sign up for free samples?

    There are SO many websites that offer free samples and it changes all the time (Walmart.com, Target.com, etc.). That’s why your best bet is to check in here at ThriftyDivas.com regularly and check Freebie Felicia’s posts. She’ll tell you where to sign up for the latest freebies. 🙂
