Manufacturers and companies give away samples of their products on a regular basis. Why? Well, it’s because they want potential consumers (like you) to try out their latest product. They’re hoping that you’ll like it so much that you will want to go out and buy it again. Obviously, they want you to like their product better than their competitor’s product, and companies know that, given a chance to try out their product, you will be able to compare them.
Those manufacturers and companies also know that potential consumers do not want to waste their hard-earned money when trying something they may not like. That is why they send out samples; to reduce buying risk and, possibly, increase their sales. However, companies want to save money as well. So, instead of mailing out their product samples to everyone with an address (and probably wasting a ton of money doing so), manufacturers instead only send them to individuals who request their samples.
Places to get freebies –
From time to time, Target offers freebie samples. Check out what products they have to offer by going to their website. If, however, they do not have any freebies when you visit the site, just try again another time. Once you find a freebie you like, fill out the request form, and they’ll send you that item for free.
If you visit the Walmart website, you’ll see that they also offer samples. Again, just like Target, you will need to visit their site every so often so find products that you’ll want. Request them by filling out any forms and provide your name and mailing address. They will send out that product at no cost to you, without shipping or handling fees.
Procter and Gamble is a company that manufactures a huge number of products. To receive their samples, promos, and coupons, you have to register for their discount and rewards program on their website. They currently have a free sample here.
Lucky for us, there are many manufacturers that use Facebook to give away samples, promos, discounts, and coupons. Once you “like” their company or brand Facebook page, they will often give potential customers the opportunity to print out a coupon, request a sample, or win a prize!
Keep in mind, other manufacturers and companies besides the ones we have listed here do offer coupons, samples, promos, and freebies as well. If you have a favorite brand, then you may want to visit that brand’s website to see if they have a newsletter or mailing list. Or, if you prefer, you can pick up the phone instead and call their customer service line and ask to be placed on their list.
