Cutting back on family expenses does not mean that you have to give up everything you enjoy – it just means that you need to find different ways of getting what you want. Freebies and samples are perfect when you want a little something to spoil yourself without spending a dime.
Freebies are great for helping you save money, and they let you experience new products that you might not normally buy. Everything from lipstick to dryer sheets are offered as freebies, all you have to do is find them and sign up. Luckily there are many great websites that put together lists of good freebies and product samples that you can get.
Here are a few good sites where you can look for freebie and product sample offers:
These sites are generally updated daily with new offers, so make sure you check in often. Some sites offer an email service that will send you an update periodically so you don’t have to log in to check out the new additions.
Additionally you can go direct to a product’s website to see what they offer in way of freebies. Many of these sites have sign ups where you can get freebie offers by email as they come up. Some examples of sites are:
- Johnson & Johnson Baby Products- http://www.johnsonsbaby.com
- L’Oreal Products – http://www.lorealparisusa.com
- Cascade Dishwashing Products – http://www.cascadeclean.com/en_US/specialoffers.do
Any company that you buy products from is a candidate, so check out your cupboards and then head online to see if they offer any free products through their website. You’d be surprised at how many of them do.
The possibilities are endless – you just need to start looking. If you really want to enhance the amount of free samples you can acquire then consider signing up for a marketing panel to test new products for companies. Occasionally you will get lucky and get to test a really good product like an mp3 player or the like, and you get to keep it! You will also get a chance to try out new types of foods, makeups and cleaning agents. Some of these product testing gigs even pay a little.
Here are a few product testing gigs that you can sign up for:
- Test for Hewlett Packard – http://www.hpproducttest.com/
- Test for Good Housekeeping – http://www.cybersurvey.com/GHtesters.htm
- Test Fishing Gear – http://www.getreeled.com/forum/topics/product-testers-wantedfree
So you see, there are many ways to get free products as samples or to test. All you have to do is spend a little time looking for them. Beware of scammers though, and never give out any financial information such as a credit card number. Try to stick to recognized, reputable companies, or else all you might end up with is an inbox full of spam for your troubles.
Getting started with getting freebies and product samples is easy, so what are you waiting for? Make the trip to the mailbox fun again – as you try to guess what exciting things will be inside. It could be anything: perfume, soap, makeup or even a digital camera. The possibilities are endless.
