PINCHme is a free sampling service. Complete your profile where you answer questions about your household and shopping habits. On select Tuesdays at 9am PST when new samples release, you can order any available that match 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 two samples on 07/19/16. Shipping usually takes 4-6 weeks, but this arrived sometime around the beginning of August. It arrived a lot faster than it usually does. The survey deadline is 10/02/16, but the surveys have not opened yet.
The only items on my dashboard were Init Bars™, and I got to pick two flavors I wanted to try. I selected Mixed Nuts Sweet Berries Nut and Cherry & Cashews Dark Chocolate. This is a brand I’ve never heard of before, but I love snack bars in general. Many of them are not much healthier than a full-on candy bar, but I’ve found snack bars leave me satiated longer. Snickers is the only exception I can think of. That really lasts a while as all the zany commercials promise. These 70% organic bars are both tasty, and definitely a product I would purchase. They provide added fiber which I can always use in my diet. I preferred the Dark Chocolate. If you are a fruit lover, the Sweet Berries bar is a great mixture of fruit flavors that are not too sweet despite the name. Although I love fruit, I love chocolate a little more. So far, I have not met a nut I did not like.
The surveys take 1-2 minutes to complete. Here is the complete survey for this product.
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 giveaway will be tomorrow, 08/16/16, at 9am PST. It is possible to join today and receive samples tomorrow. 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.
