In the past, I have talked about companies and websites that give you free stuff.
Today, we’re going to get some freebies from one of the giants in the retail industry, Target.
The Target Sample Spot has been my favorite online spot for the last couple of months.
All you need to do is simply answer a few questions and enter your address so you can get the free Target samples by mail.
To make it easy for you, I have put together a short post with details about Target’s freebies, how you can get them, and what you need to know.
Getting the samples
To get started, the Target Sample Spot is the place to go.
When the site is fully launched, you will get to see what free samples are available to the public.
After making your choice of free samples, you need to click on “Request Sample“.
A small pop-up window will appear and this is the place you are expected to fill out some survey questions. You need to finish answering to whatever questions, which may be asked of you before you can get to the free sample form.
Now enter your address where you want them to mail the stuff to. Usually, Target will ship them to you within a day or so.
What Kind of Samples Can You Get
There is no telling, really. Target carries thousands of products from hundreds of companies, so you can expect a lot of things.
That said, usually samples from Walmart, Target, and other similar retailers, are limited to items such as foods, make up and beauty supplies, baby care products, cleaning supplies, and other small-ish products.
For shorter-term perspective, the free offers over the last few months from Target include free GoodNites underwear for kids, make up supplies, and a free sample of Wisk laundry detergent.
Things to Keep in Mind
- Before anything else, make sure your cookies inside the browser are enabled.
- Every household has one and only one shot at one free sample from Target. Only US residents can participate in this giveaway by Target.
- Do expect a delivery lead-time of 4 – 6 weeks.
I know a lot of times, stuff that these companies giveaway are not really what you need or use. That’s why it pays to keep an eye on their website or perhaps subscribe to their newsletter, so you can be informed when they start giving samples you can actually use.
Also, when you talk about a site like Target giving away free stuff, you can always be sure that these things won’t last for long, so make as regular visits as early as possible, just so to enhance your chance of landing something useful.
