How to get Free Items or Samples of Real Products?

Requesting these products through the mail will generally take up to 4-6 weeks to receive if not sooner. I look forward to checking my mail to see what kind of new surprises are awaiting for me. On another note, it also keeps the postal service busy. When I open my free products, I can't wait to try them or keep them around " just in case" moment.

These pictures I posted are actual samples I received in the mail. I have received numerous others that are not on here. My favorite free product was of the Keurig Tumbler for my ice coffee or teas. Overall the best part of the researching and requesting samples was to try name brands I don't usually purchase first to see if I would even like it. The glorious feeling is knowing it was actually "Free" at my disposable. Who says you can't get nothing for nothing? My photos are proof that you can.


Below are some references I use.

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Kmart
  • Green Mountain Coffee via Facebook

The company's listed above, I went to their website and search for samples. If they have some offers you may request them. You will have to periodically check their sites for new ones. You may also go onto a company's facebook page and like to see if they offer any. But, once again it takes searching and rewards are actually free products.

My Tip 2 You

Finding free items/samples, takes trial and error. There are websites out there that wont give you a sample unless you subscribe to their site or fake freebies. The ones that are truly real are trying to promote their new and latest products and will send a sample in hopes that you will purchase after use. I prefer those offers as long as there is no attachments at the initial request. I use my social media (i e) face book and twitter. Pick a certain product that you would truly be interested in trying and search their sites for any samples and from there.
