Who doesn’t love to get free stuff? I know I do, and I suspect just about everyone else does too, including you. After all, why pay for something when you don’t have to?
I know what you’re thinking – this is impossible. You may be wondering how to get free stuff. After all, nothing is free these days, unless there’s a catch. Sure, I agree that nobody truly gives anything away for free anymore without expecting something in return, but there are plenty of companies out there that are willing to lose a few bucks giving away free stuff in order to help bring more paying customers on board. And you stand to benefit from companies dishing out free stuff as part of their overall marketing campaign.
Are you following me, or have I lost you? Let me explain in a little more detail. You see, companies engage in a lot of marketing tactics all in an effort to bring in more paying customers, and one savvy way to do that is to let consumers actually sample their products first. If you try certain products, you might like them enough to actually go out and buy the full-sized, full-priced product.
And if you’re really a fan, you might even go so far as to share your new-found products with others on social media. In fact, that’s exactly what companies want you to do when they hand out freebies, and people like you and I can capitalize on this concept.
I’ve already sampled everything from skin cream, to cookies, to bathroom cleaners, to perfumes, all without having to spend a dime thanks to boxes and boxes of sample freebies that I’ve been graced with over the recent past. I’ve probably received a few hundred bucks worth of free stuff that I actually use and enjoy.
Want to give it a try yourself? Keep reading, I’m going to tell you how to get free stuff. Consider some of the following sites that are easy and quick to join and give out free stuff all the time.
The website’s name says it all, doesn’t it? By visiting this site, you can tap into all sorts of free samples of things that you use every day, such as coffee, dental floss, dish soap, moisturizer, and so forth.
All you need to do is enter your contact information to get free samples from some of your favorite brands sent right to your home for you to use. You can even use this site to try out new products you’ve never used before instead of paying full price at your local retail store.
Another free sample program is PINCHme, which will ship out a box of free samples to you every month for you to try. The best part of this program is that the boxes of samples are personalized based on a profile that you fill out, so you’ll be able to enjoy products that you actually use all the time and love.
Companies who give out these products want people to try a free sample and love it so much that they’re willing to actually go out and purchase the full-sized version. PINCHme also offers many different coupons to make your expenditures much more affordable. If you leave feedback on products you’ve sampled, you could boost your chances of scoring more free samples in the future.
You can get free stuff from Influenster based on reviews that you write about the products that you’ve tried. When the box arrives at your door, you can complete specific tasks online, and the more tasks you complete, the higher the odds of getting more boxes going forth.
If you’re active on social media, you can really make Influenster work for you. The more you share about the boxes you receive and the products you’ve tried, the more free boxes of products you’ll get in the future.
As a member of Smiley360, you will receive offers from the biggest brands and will be encouraged to share your experience with others.
Smiley360 sends out boxes of samples for free, as well as full-sized products, to consumers who try the products and share their reviews with others online through social media. The system works based on “missions,” which are completed when you share your opinions on social media about the box you receive. Like other sites, you’ll be required to fill out your profile, after which the products sent to you will be based on the information you’ve provided.
You’ll receive surveys that you will fill out that could make you eligible for a “mission.” If the mission is accepted, you will get a box with stuff that you can use for free. The more surveys that you fill out, the higher your chances of getting more missions from Smiley360.
If you’re not too keen on having to dish about your experiences with the products that you try for free on your social media profiles, then give House Party and Chatterbox a try. This is a great resource if you like to host gatherings with friends and family. I love having people over, so this is a fun way to spice up my parties and leave my guests with a little something!
House Party gives boxes of samples for free to be used towards throwing a party in an effort to promote specific products or services. The products that you receive can be anything from decorations to freebies to hand out as party favors. Don’t worry – all of the products sent are designed with a fun party in mind.
On the other hand, Chatterbox does not require a party, and the samples that are sent out are only for you to try. Of course, you can always share them with a friend if you so desire.
Before you go out and buy products, why not try them for free first? That’s precisely the motto of SampleSource, which sends out things such as household products, beauty products, makeup, and sometimes even food for free! When you sign up, you’ll be notified when you can request specific items, as they aren’t necessarily always available.
Once you’re all signed up, you can expect to receive free boxes of samples roughly four times a year with anywhere between six to 12 freebies per box.
