SampleSource - Samples To Try Before You Buy

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
There are a few brands and products I'm extremely loyal to but, for the most part, I like to try new things and see what's on the market. There's always the "new and improved" and "bigger and better". One way that a company is more likely to lure me in with their products is by allowing me to try them first via free samples.

I recently learned of a company that lets you "Try Before You Buy" - SampleSource. By simply signing up and becoming a free member, SampleSource will give you the opportunity to select new products you'd like to try. That, in turn, helps consumers make smarter shopping decisions for themselves and their families. The sign-up process is easy and takes only a few minutes. The company never uses your information to spam you or sell to anyone. The questionnaire simply helps them determine what kinds of samples you'd like so you're offered what works for you and your family and the company can secure more samples like those you want.

Emails are sent out from time to time to everyone registered on the website, letting them know when samples are available. Folks then log on, log in, and start choosing the items they want. Each available sample is posted with a photo and descriptive information. There is no limit to how many different samples can be requested and there is no cost for shipping or to try the products out. Follow-up emails arrive on products received, inviting folks to share their thoughts on the products. Participation is entirely voluntary.

I signed up as a member of SampleSource and received my first box of samples within a week. In it was a trial size tube of Colgate toothpaste, Colgate mouthwash, and Tums Freshers. Also included were a couple of coupons. I've used all the samples received in the box and like them. But even if I wouldn't have cared for anything in the box, there's no harm, no foul because I received the samples for free.

If being able to get free samples by signing up for free is your thing, I definitely encourage you to sign up for SampleSource. There's nothing to lose. Just some awesome sample products to gain, and all for FREE!

It sounds like Pinch Me, except Pinch Me only releases samples every week or bi-weekly on the middle of the day...when most of us have our hands full with jobs, children, etc. If you miss then, you miss then. There's no real warning, unless you happen to be on their website and notice the date is near. It's kind of hard to do that when life is going on. LOL.

Do you know if this company does that? Only releases them on a specific day and time? I didn't see you mention this in your post, so I think not, but figured I would ask anyway! Thanks for the great recommend. I will sign up with them.
