How to Get Free Stuff Online! (The Secret is Out!)

How to Get Free Stuff Online! (The Secret is Out!)


– I always tell you guys, I honestly have not purchased toothpaste in a few years because of how
many free samples they send. (upbeat music) Hey guys, welcome back to another video. Today I’m going to be
talking about free samples and why they’re worth your time. They totally are. I’m gonna share some of the samples that I’ve gotten recently,
but most importantly and I’m actually going
to talk to you guys about where you can find the
free samples, where you can get free full size samples,
how you can get them mailed to you completely free in the mail. And one of the most important things is how to know whether the free sample is a scam or a real offer. So let’s get started. (upbeat music) OK, so here is a quick little look at some of the free samples that
I’ve gotten recently. Obviously there’s a range of products. From small sample sizes
to full size products. To coupons to free products. Sometimes you’ll see free samples on a Facebook page from a company, or maybe you’ll see a form
for it on their website. For the most part you
can trust those sites and those locations because you’ll know that those are legit places
to find the free samples. So for example if I’m
getting a Colgate sample, and the URL of the
website address that has the form doesn’t have
the word Colgate in it, doesn’t say, Colgate.com/ whatever. Then you might wanna
be a little bit careful or leery at entering your information. And if you guys ever have questions whether or not, a free
sample site is legit or not, just leave a comment on
this video and I will answer you and let you know. Because there are some site out there that like to phish or
scam your information. So they’ll say, “Hey we’re
giving away a free sample.” “And enter your information,
and we’ll send it to you.” But really what they’re
doing is they’re taking the information and are they’re selling it to other companies to make profit or selling it to marketers or scammers. And then you still don’t get your sample. So it’s kind of sad. Alright, so I’m gonna talk about some weird places you can get free samples. Zulily.com is one of my favorite, favorite sites to save money. They have daily deals on everything from baby products to clothing
to toys to Christmas. Basically if you want
to a deal with something that’s where you should go. So if you do not have an account already, I will make sure to link
you below to that site in the YouTube description
and again if you new to the channel or new to YouTube just click on the little upside down triangle over here if you’re on your phone and it will pop open that
description section for you. And if you are just on your
computer click, show more. But these are some of the products that I’ve gotten on Zulily. So, they come with
coupons attached as well. Which are always great because
then you can save money at the grocery store if
you do like the sample and you want to buy more. I’ve also gotten an entire box of granola bars from Quaker. And these just kind of come randomly thrown in with the orders
that I’m purchasing from Zulily, which is kind of random. Because I didn’t request a sample. They’re just kind of throwing them in which is awesome. So I mean I even have Garnier samples. I have Centrum samples. I even have Maybelline
samples with makeup. And these all have just
kind of been thrown in my boxes whenever I ordered
anything from Zulily. So I’m not only I’m getting
a great deal from them, but I’m also getting some
free samples and coupons. Which is awesome too. Now, other then filling out forms that you might find online or through Facebook pages, there
are few different ways you can actually request
samples to be sent to you. One of those is called Sample Source. Sample Source, will let
you know if you sign up for their emails, when those
sample boxes are coming out. And to give you an idea of what came in my most recent box, I
have Colgate travel size, I also have the Bona
hardwood floor cleaner. And I have Flax Plus Multibran Flakes, I have a Refresh, I also have a sample of Seventh Generation Baby
Wipes with a coupon attached. Breathe Right Strips with a coupon and again another coupon for my Colgate. So that all came in one box for me. It just showed up through my mailbox, and like I said it was completely free. And they will let you know when their sample box is
about ready to come out again, you guys can request it. Alright, another sample site you guys should be paying attention
to is called, PINCH me. Their samples typically
release on a Tuesday, and you have to answer a
few quick little questions in order to see if you
qualify for the samples. And they do go pretty fast, but if you are able to get online when they go live, which is typically around
10AM non standard time and they usually go live on a Tuesday. Not every Tuesday but on a Tuesday. Then you’ll be able to
request some samples. So these are some of the ones I was able to request recently. It’s Gold Bond Lotion. I have ZzzQuil. Enfagrow Formula. So this is pretty cool too. Last one I wanna talk to you guys about is called, Influenster. Now, not everyone can sign up to get an Influenster Box, or be picked to be an Influenster for that month. You have to actually sign
up and see if you qualify. But they give some pretty sweet samples. So let me show you some
of the things I’ve got recently from them. I have a bottle of Downy Fabric Softener, which is a pretty cool
sample don’t you think to be mailed to you. We also have Popchips
that come in the mail. I have Werther’s Originals. I also have, a Goodness Knows Bar. A Mr. Sketch Marker
that came with a coupon. And the best part about these boxes is that they also send coupons
for completely free products. So they might not be able to mail you like a frozen food product in the mail. But they can give you a coupon to get you a completely free
one at the grocery store. And it’ll tell you how much it’s worth. So this one is up to $4.99. So I can buy any product
I want at the store $4.99 or less and it
would be completely free when I handed this coupon to the cashier. It’s pretty awesome. The other thing with Influenster is that they actually want you to try the products and give your review on
the products as well. It’s part of like your deal
for getting the product so. I’m gonna have to taste
these, see if I like them. And then go back on
the Influenster account and let them know what I think. One of the other sites I
wanna talk to you is about that I actually don’t have
any free samples to show you. Is through the P&G site. You can actually request samples
from them once a quarter. But P&G actually owns a
ton of different brands. So you’re gonna get
samples from everywhere. Brands like Tide, Gain,
Head and Shoulders, Pantene Pro V, Scope, Gillette Razors. I mean there’s tons. And you get free samples from them. OK so there’s a few different rules that come along with free
samples just in general. The first one is, is that samples typically take four to
eight weeks to actually get in the mail. So don’t freak out if you
don’t get it right away. Because it does take it some time to get. But the best part about that is, is if you continually start
requesting free samples every time you see them, you’ll start getting
free samples in the mail every single week. And who doesn’t love
getting something completely free in the mail? I mean that’s a lot of fun. And what I typically do is get a big box like this, and throw all
my free samples in it. And I kind of have it
as my free sample box. So if I get something in the mail, I just bring it home, throw it in the box. And then when I’m ready to get a new tube of toothpaste, do I
need to go to the store and buy it? No, I just have to go
grab one of my free sample versions instead. The most important things
you wanna look out for when you are filling out these forms. These forms shouldn’t be asking you to do any offers, to pay any money. They shouldn’t be asking you to possibly win something. It is a legit, you really do get this for filling out this form. And these are the typical things they’re gonna ask you for. Your name, your address,
your email address, sometimes they ask for a phone number. And then you might have
to check like a box saying yes I opt into email updates. Or yes I’ll follow you on Facebook or something like that in
order to get the free sample. There shouldn’t be any
other fluff in there. So if there’s other questions or other ridiculously long surveys with all these pop ups coming up or saying, “Congrats you
won $1000 gift card.” That stuff is not legit and those are not the type of free
samples I’m talking about. So I hope I gave you guys some direction when it comes to free samples and what you guys should be looking
for and what you should stay away from so you guys know how to get the real samples and
you don’t get faked out. Again, don’t forget to check the description section
below my YouTube video. So you guys know where
to go find these samples and start requesting
them on a regular basis. Because if you’re always
requesting free samples you get things coming in
your mail every single week and it’s super fun. So if you guys have any questions for me about free samples or sites
that are legit or not legit, leave a comment below, and
I will ask them for you, and I’ll talk to you guys next time. Bye. (upbeat music)
