PINCHme is a free sampling service. Complete your profile where you answer questions about your household and shopping habits. On select Tuesdays at 9amPST when new samples release, you can order any available that match up to your profile. The better samples tend to run out quickly, so log in as early as possible. Once you’ve tried the samples, you complete a short survey. As long as you complete your surveys in a timely manner, you are eligible to receive future samples.
This package was ordered on 07/14/15. It shipped on 07/30/15. On 08/19/15, it arrived at my house. It takes about a month from ordering to receipt. The surveys were up before the products arrived. I only completed them yesterday since I just finished trying all the products.
I was able to order six samples this day. Only one item was out of stock by the time I arrived to claim my samples. Offers are based on your profile, so you may not see six items as I did. You may see more or less.
The box is always filled to the brim.
In addition to the six items I ordered, I got a $100 nakedwines.com voucher. I do not drink alcohol. My husband says he does not feel like ordering anything. The last order had a card with the same code and password, so this offer code is not unique. Multiple people can probably use this.
I always welcome coupons especially on items I want to purchase.
Some may have noticed I received a sample of Gold Bond Ultimate healing aloe in the last PINCHme order. I ordered it the second time since it was offered to me again. The original order had not arrived to my house by the time I placed the second order, so I had no clue what this would be like. It is a little greasy, but it works extremely well for a cheap lotion. Target sells this in the travel section for $0.97. At that price, I will buy these.
This Scotch-Brite Extreme Scrub Sponge worked great. It is the brand I purchase most often, so I was already familiar with it. Unlike some sponges, these do not pick up harsh odors. I probably toss sponges faster than the average person, so that helps more with odors developing than any technology in the sponge. I still prefer the Stay Clean Scrubbers from this brand, so that is probably the one I will continue to purchase. The material on that one is better at actually scrubbing without scratching.
I’ve used Band-Aids my entire life, so I did not even need to sample these to know I love them. Getting extras of items I know and love is almost as fun as trying new ones without an investment.
This Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum should have arrived with my January Drugstore.com offer, but it was missing. There was no way I was contacting them about a single missing foil, so I dealt without it. Seeing it as a PINCHme offer was cool, because I finally received it. The smell is not terrible, but it is not pleasant either. While serum foils are nearly impossible to review (it can take up to four weeks to see full effects from serums), I only need a foil to know I am not allergic. My skin reacts to so many products, so a foil to test compatibility is enough. I’d be willing to sample this serum again in larger form to see if it does anything positive for my skin. So far, I have not noticed anything (as expected).
Summer’s Eve is the feminine wash I use most often, but I had never used this Night-time Cleansing Wash or the Night-time Cleansing Cloth. It was thicker than my usual wash, but it did the job. I really like this scent, but I prefer the formula of my usual Summer’s Eve wash. When it is time to purchase the next one, I will need to decide if I want to shop for scent or formula. The wipe works well enough, so I would consider purchasing those as well.
Dented Comfort Clean Floss Picks are a product we already use, so I of course accepted a sample. My older son spills these all over the bathroom and wastes almost as many as he uses. There is no way I am sticking these in my mouth when they spilled on the floor. While it disappoints me to see a solitary little guy, I was happy there was a coupon on the back. I can save a little when I repurchase these. These floss picks are terrible for flossing front teeth as they are awkward to maneuver. They are wonderful for back teeth making them totally worth buying.
This was a very interesting box in that there were no brands completely new to me, and the only item unlike anything I’ve tried is an item I should have received in January. I did receive the non advanced version of the serum, but I have not sampled it yet. The Gold Bond was new before I received it in the last box, but now I feel I know it well enough.
The surveys take 1-2 minutes to complete. Here is the complete survey on one item.
Once you’ve completed the survey, you’re done and ready to order samples on the next release. You can also review the products on the brand’s website, but that is not necessary. If you really love or hate something, it is probably a good thing to do. It takes very little time all together. Learn more about PINCHme or any of the other free sampling programs I trust. The next sample choice will be available on 09/15/15 at 9amPST. If you want to join or have already joined, make sure your profile is up to date. Samples are assigned based on answers to your profile questions, so you should have all answers ready to go ahead of selection time.
I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
