Nothing beats completely free offers. Sometimes, there really is no catch to obtaining free items. You just have to know where to look and how to find them. Welcome to the thirteenth installment of items I’ve received for free. Past articles feature different freebies. The offers at times come in emails. Sometimes, you will see them on a blog or the direct brand’s website. Other times, you can find free offers on social media or even through snail mail. My Free Samples Page provides more information on sample opportunities. Offers can at times come by phone, but I never answer numbers I do not recognize. I will miss out on any that come that way.
Most of these freebies came from freebieselect.com or freebiesinyourmail.com. There are similar sites, but those are the only ones I signed up for. I’d stop short of endorsing either, because I only receive about a quarter of the freebies I apply for from their links. If you want a chance at getting freebies and are okay providing your information knowing less than 25% will arrive, you could sign up. These companies are companies like them probably get these offers through an affiliate of some sort. For the 75% that never arrive, they are likely phishing for personal information or get overwhelmed by receiving more requests than they anticipated. Either way, I do not like listing freebies for my readers unless I know they will actually get them.
If you see a link for a freebie anywhere on my site, I have received that freebie or a different one from the sender. I will not link any I am unsure of, because as mentioned above less than a quarter actually result in freebies. While I am okay with those odds, I know everyone is not. Those who are can order directly from one of the sources listed above. Any offers that are still available at posting time are linked below. My front page always lists free samples I am aware of. Offers still available when the product arrives are listed on the front page. These articles are held until I have multiple products, so most freebies are gone before I post. Most freebies are actually gone before the sample even ships.
Target eliminated its free sample section at the beginning of August 2016, but I ordered the one listed below before the cutoff. I was hoping the free samples would return after Target finished its website overhaul, but customer service informed somebody else it would not return. This Fiber Choice Flavor Drops in Tropical Orange sample is something I plan to try soon. Fiber is something I’d like to add to my diet.
Saks Fifth Avenue mailed me this sample of Tom Ford Soleil Blanc. I did not order this sample, but SAKS is known for sending random samples or cards to go in and receive random samples based on purchase history. This is the first time I’ve received a Tom Ford sample, but I’ve received Lancome in the past.
There is an offer for a free vial of Tom Ford cologne on the back of the card, but I have not made it over to SAKS yet. Once I try the sample, I will see if it is worth the trip.
I am actually a huge fan of Caudalie Vonsource Moisturizing Sorbet. It is surprisingly moisturizing for a thin cream. This sample will be great to throw in my travel bag for a summer trip when I prefer a thinner cream.
I have not tried this since they changed the packaging. Hopefully, they only changed the packaging and left the formula I love intact.
I consider myself as an Always Enthusiast. It is the only brand I ever really buy, so I love sampling other brands.
Poise sent these Moderate Absorbency Pads through its Make This Your Poise Moment campaign. These are a little thicker than I generally prefer, but I really like these for overnight. They actually work better than Always overnight pads.
I have not tried these Centrum Vitamints yet, but I’ve actually received them a few times. This sample seems easy to come by for any interested.
Both of my boys have eczema, so I’d heard of Exederm. We had never tried it though.
I love when samples come with coupons, so I can purchase them if I like the sample.
My younger son actually has a flare up on his elbow, so I will apply this on him soon.
The Le Couvent des Minimes Gardener’s Hand Healer is one of my favorite hand creams.
I love when I can get free samples of this. These are a great size for short trips.
As a mom, I go through a lot of bandages. I love these Nexcare bandages, because they stick a lot better than the traditional bandaid from this brand.
I love trying new moisturizers, and this derma E Hydrating Day Cream interested me. Anything that promises to hydrate has its work cut out for itself with my dry skin.
This is a very generous coupon. I shop at Target often, so it does not bother me that the coupon is only valid there.
Someone told me about this Shiseido offer were people could send a free 0.33oz Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate to a friend and get one for themselves.
These are my favorite types of offers, because I love sending freebies to friends and family.
This one also comes with a complimentary Facial Treatment at a Shiseido Spa. I’m not even aware of any spas under this brand, so I am not sure they have any where I am. If they do, I may take them up on this offer.
I’ve received this sample a few times from other sources, and I’ve waited long enough to try it. This is one I will try soon.
I’ve wanted to try this Jurlique Activating Water Essence since it released. I love essences and I love anything that adds moisture to my dry skin. Hopefully this lives up to my expectations. The glass sample came in a cute drawstring bag. This is the nicest sample I received this round.

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.
