Don’t you hate it when you find a so-called “freebie” site that makes you fill out surveys (page after page) in order to ship you a few small (and in most cases useless) free samples?
Most of the time, you don’t even get the promised freebie.
The site turns out to be a scam just harvesting your information so they can sell it to advertisers.
The good news is that there are ways to get free things legitimately, without a catch or strings attached.
If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!
A few different ways actually:
- Requesting samples directly from stores that offer it, like Walmart and Target.
- You can go through sites that offer freebies in exchange for participating in their surveys.
- You can also get stuff via product testing programs.
- And then there are those freebies sites where you can get free samples of hundreds of different products with no catch, no strings attached and without filling out surveys.
I bet that last option is what you’re interested in. So let’s get started.
1. Totally Free Crap
Totally Free Crap is one site that needs to be more appreciated.
This site is a treasure trove of information on getting products samples from all kinds of companies.
What I love about this site is that they don’t bore you with a long post explaining how great it is to get this or that item for free. When you click on the image link, you go straight to the manufacturer’s page where you can fill out the form to get your free sample shipped to you.
The site categorizes things very neatly. You can find stuff from pet food/toys and kid freebies and samples to magazines, makeup, shampoo, and more.
2. Woman Freebies
Woman Freebies is one of those not very well-known sites that have a very loyal following.
And rightly so!
Their selection of freebies and samples ranges from food related stuff all the way to health and beauty samples.
Best of all, WF has daily sweepstakes that you can enter for free to win awesome prizes and cash.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
You may have even seen people talk about Freeflys on TV. They were featured on many talk and morning shows such as the Today Show.
Using their search function you can easily drill down and find the sample or freebie you want without spending hours trying to weed through tons of useless coupons and promos.
4. Sample A Day
Want free samples by mail with no surveys or catch?
Sample A Day is your best bet!
This is not a traditional freebie site. It’s a curation of all the best freebies and sample available on the internet. Almost like a database. You enter a search term (free makeup samples, perfume samples, etc) and the site then links you to the sites that provide those freebies.
5. Free Stuff Times
What I like about Free Stuff Times is that they also provide information of full-size freebies, not just samples.
For example, at the time of writing this post, they had a post showing people how to get a free 22 oz can of Pedigree wet dog food from Kmart (you can get it by installing the Kmart app).
It’s definitely worth bookmarking and coming back to check for new freebies.
6. Freebies 4 Mom
Freebies 4 Mom was founded in 2007 by Heather Hernandez.
She finds and shares sources of samples and freebies for any kind of item a mom may need, from free diapers to magazines and everything in between.
7. Hey It’s Free
There are a ton of stuff on Hey It’s Free.
And you know what the best part is?
They can all be found easily thanks to this site’s organization strategy. You can browse freebies by category or search directly for an exact item.
Getting free samples isn’t as hard as you may think. You just have to know where to look and what to avoid.
If there is any other site that you get free product samples from that’s not listed here, please leave a comment below and I’ll add it to this list.
