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.
The number of samples available varies. On sample days, you may find zero available based on your profile. Other times, you may find six. I ordered five samples on 03/15/16. They split the items up, so I received two shipments a few days apart in mid April. Shipping usually takes 4-6 weeks. The survey deadline is 05/27/16. I’ve only completed one of the five so far, but I will complete the others on time.
The Allegra Allergy 24Hr is something I’ve tried before, so I probably can review this now. I have not taken any allergy medications in a long time, so I ordered this for my husband. He occasionally takes allergy medication and just took a Zyrtec recently when he went hiking. Most allergy medications stop the symptoms I face: like runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, etc. This is no different. It works without making me drowsy the way Benadryl does. Although I prefer Benadryl (to anything) when I am having an allergic reaction, I have used it when I have no other allergy medication as a preventive medicine.
The Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream is 0.24oz. This is a decent sized sample. I may not finish this right away unless I cannot get a feeling for how it performs without using all of it.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is a 0.02oz foil that may give one or two uses. I will definitely try this soon, so I meet the review deadline. If I do not edit the results here, this will make my May Empties. Most Olay products I’ve tried have impressed me, so I am sure this will be great. A Drugstore.com order also gave me a 0.5oz sample of this. If I like the product or cannot give it a fair review based on the tiny sample, I can always open the larger one I already own.
The Kashi GOLEAN Plant-Powered Bar Salted Dark Chocolate and Nuts is delicious. My four-year-old son and I shared this. It was not too advanced for his palette, but it was not simple either. Each flavor inside blended wonderfully.
My husband ate the single serve Kashi GOLEAN Clusters Vanilla Pepita Cereal. I cannot remember what he thought of it, so I will edit his response once I ask him again. He is not a huge cereal fan, but this does not look like a traditional cereal.
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 today, 05/10/16, at 9am PST. It is possible to join today and already receive samples, if there are any left. 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.
