Free items (updated 11/10/11)

Updated on November 10, 2011

I never knew how many free samples and opportunities for coupons for free products there were.  I have signed up to get so many things lately: Scotch painter’s tape, a fun box of Kleenex, a cleaning kit, a coupon for a box of Barilla, lotion, a bottle of Advil… You name it; it’s probably available or will be available as a sample at some point.  I think it’s time to let my friends in on this money saver. 


I frequently watch Craigslist for freebies. People just want the stuff gone. I have gotten shelving to use for my ebay inventory, toys for my kiddos, clothing, packing peanuts, you name it. But someone in our area is RUINING it! Not once, not twice, but three times now, I have responded to postings only to receive this back...

I'm sorry that I didnt get back to you before, I had already offered this to the first person who emailed me but she didn't reply to me. Are you still interested?

I need to go to an event at my sons school tomorrow but then Ill be home for the next few days. Please let me know if that works.


Still sounds legit, doesn't it. I respond and say no problem how about this time or this time? Then I get this...


I am very VERY sorry. the other person emailed me back, and it turns out her first reply landed in the junk folder and I didn't see it. I feel really terrible....

You know, if it's any consolation, Ive been earning very good money with this home income program and theyve just opened up 2 more positions in our area. Basically you earn money by posting links online, its very simple and you can just do it while watching TV.

Here is the link if you want to check it out:

Ive earned around $700 a week since I began.. not enough to leave my job yet but I finally have some spare money in my checking account lol. My sister is planning on signing up later and these positions usually go fast, so I'd appreciate it if you didn't share the link with anyone else.

Thanks alot and again, very sorry about the whole mess up..


I've reported the last two to Craigslist but by the time I get the e-mails, the post has been taken down so I can't flag it.

So frustrating!

All You

All you is a magazine only available at WalMart or by subscription. It has coupons in it that aren’t available elsewhere. You should also go their website. They post a different sample daily. Here’s what they’ve had since the first…

Oct 1st Shout Color Catcher Sample

Oct 2nd Free Sample of Dove® Daily Treatment or Intensive Repair Conditioner (your choice).

Oct 3rd Elmer’s Glue

Oct 4th Zebra Z-Grip Daisies Pen

Oct 5th Ester C Gummies

Oct 6th Woolite

When you see one of these go up, grab it fast because quantities are limited.  It seems they usually post sometime in the late morning (9:30-10:30) but today the Woolite sample didn't go up until 11:30.  They were gone before 12:30.

Sign up to receive their daily reminder about their freebies. They also have several online printable coupons. Check it out! All You


Hey its free

This site is basically a website with links to recent freebies and a few witty paragraphs to go with them.  I like how straightforward this one is.  Quick and easy to decide if it’s something you want to try.


Free Sample Freak

This site has a lot of the same items as “Hey it’s Free” but there are a couple of unique freebies.  I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t send you all possible resources, now would I? 

Free Sample Freak

In Stores Now


Walmart has a site where you can request free samples  as well as stay on top of special events and new products carried there.  Today I requested Crest pro health samples.  They also had Tena pads and Whisk available.

First Taste

Kraft has a website where it offers people the chance to receive coupons to try some of their newer products and then give feedback on the items.  I just signed up today (10/6/10) and got coupons for Triscuit thin crisps, Kraft Homestyle Mac & Cheese dinner and Wheat thins crunch stix.  Each coupon was for $1 off.  I don’t know what these items actually cost in the store.  We’ll see how good of a deal these actually are!

First Taste


If you are not a member of Vocalpoint, become a member and request a free box of Barilla Plus pasta.  It is a free e-mail newsletter that has tips and tricks for around the house and occasionally, free samples.
