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.
I ordered this package on 01/12/16. It arrived on 02/18/16. Shipping usually takes 4-6 weeks, so this 5 week shipping is pretty standard. The survey deadline is 03/28/16. I completed them all, because the people I gave the products to (sadly I was unable to use any of these) already reported their results.
The number varies. On sample days, you may find zero available based on your profile. Other times, you may find six. Of the four I found this day, I gave the Truvia and Co Q-10 to my husband, the sippy cup lid to my brother for his daughter, and the tampons to my sister.
I always welcome coupons especially on items I want to purchase. This box had one for $3 off Method and three of the four products had coupons inside. The fourth one may have as well but the person I gave it to does not recall seeing one.
In addition to the four 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.
The Boon Snug Spout Universal Sippy Lid went to my niece. I wish there was something like this around (I was not aware if it was) when my boys were learning to use a sippy cup. There are still restaurants that do not have to go cups or kids cups. Nothing ruins a meal faster than a wet, cranky kid. Without lids, they spill on themselves almost every time. This is a really great idea to have a lid that goes on almost any cup.
The Well at Walgreens Perfection Silk Plastic Tampons went to my sister. It has been years since I used a tampon. Sure they’re comfortable if placed correctly, but if placed incorrectly they are a pain. I also hate inserting and removing these.
The Sundown Naturals® Co Q-10 Gummy Vitamins went to my husband. While I am not against taking Co Q-10, I only take a multi vitamin and fish oil. If I decide to add Co-Q10 down the road, I may consider this.
The Truvia® Natural Sweetner went to my husband. I only use sugar. All of these sugar substitutes usually taste terrible, so I will not even give them a chance. My husband says this is nowhere near as good as Stevia (which I’ve also never tried).
The surveys take 1-2 minutes to complete. Here is the complete survey on an item.
They also want a quick follow-up down the road to see if you purchased any of the items. That is even shorter than the survey above, so it is relatively painless.
Once you’ve completed the survey(s), 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 03/15/16 at 9am PST. If you want to join or have already joined, make sure your profile is up to date. Samples are available based on answers to your profile questions, so you should have all answers ready to go before the next arrival.
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.
