PINCHme Volume Eleven
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 four samples on 09/20/16. Shipping usually takes 4-6 weeks, and this arrived in the third week of October. The survey deadline is 11/29/16, but I already completed all of my surveys.
I do not have any pets, so I’m not sure why PINCHme offered me this Purina® Puppy Chow® Natural. There are no pets listed in my profile. My sister does have dogs, so I ordered it for her. Her dogs loved it. She said they loved it more than what she regularly feeds them. Once she saw the ingredients and how well it is made, she was even more impressed.
The Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth is almost perfect. It works wonderfully on both sides. The side with the dots works great for scrubbing, and the other side works great for wiping or gentle cleansing. I like that it is the size of a tab when I am cleaning the kitchen, but I would prefer it in a smaller size when I am doing the dishes. It is pretty easy to clean, so this should last longer than my average kitchen tool.
My husband loves popcorn, chips, all things organic, and anything healthy. The Popcorners Carnival Kettle chips look healthier than average, fried chips. When I saw them, I knew it would be perfect for him. He enjoyed them so much that he forgot to save me one. I also wanted to see the bag to see if they are healthier than normal chips. His recap was they were good, but not great. For someone who rarely gives a snack the great seal of approval, I’d say these were a success. Next time I see them at the store, I will pick some up. He likes them, and I still want to try them.
My husband loves cooking and playing with new spices. I love buying new spices for him to experiment with, so I selected this McCormick® Organics Seasoning Mix for him. He never sticks to buying one type of spice, because he likes mixing things up. This is one he liked, so we will definitely purchase. It was not his favorite, so he will continue to purchase others and keep trying to create perfection.
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 Tuesday, 11/15/16, at 9am PST. It is possible to join today and receive samples next tie. 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 (13 and 8) 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 13-year-old to apply it.
