There are so many ways free samples can help you spend less money, but there is one that I think is often overlooked–although it probably saves most households more money than any other way free samples can.
Free Samples Reduce Buyer’s Remorse
How often have you bought a new brand of shampoo or coffee or body wash only to discover that you hate it? In fact, you hate it so much you just can’t bear the thought of using up the whole rest of the package or bottle, so you toss it or give it to a friend with different tastes than your own, all the while thinking of the precious dollars that product took from your budget; leaving you with less money to now go and buy your old favorite.
Taking the few minutes to fill out forms for free samples lets you try the product for free, saving you from buyer’s remorse and therefore helping you spend less money.
I can think of 2 or 3 brands at least that my family now uses regularly simply because we tried a sample and loved it. I can also think of at least 2 or 3 brands that our family never bought a full sized product of simply because we received a free sample and when we tried it we found that the product didn’t suit our tastes or preferences.
One Great Source For Free Samples
One of my regular sources of great free samples is PINCHme.
PINCHme is a monthly subscription site that lets you try products from leading brands completely for FREE! All they ask for is your feedback on the products.
Filling out the feedback forms doesn’t take long and getting my PINCHme box in the mail each month is such a great thrifty mail treat.
Normally a PINCHme box has up to 4 samples. Above is a picture of the free samples I received in my PINCHme box last month.
Every month an amazing range of free samples are released on PINCHme for members to claim. These samples include grocery, baby, pet, beauty, home, and personal care products.
