PINCHme September 2018 Free Sample Order Review

Although, I love that PINCHme keeps sending me free magazine redemption codes, it disappoints to see it is not as easy as it once was to get free samples. It has been so long since I’ve purchased a magazine subscription yet thanks to companies like this, I always get them. My guess is the magazine industry (at least in print form will be non-existent in the next five to ten years). I do most of my reading online anyway, so I will not miss print magazines once they are officially a thing of the past. Companies must adapt over time to grow (unless they have a niche market on lock), so I do not begrudge PINCHme for the changes. Nevertheless, I would be amiss to continue reviewing items without noting them.

The Time I Got Orange Hair Courtesy of PINCHme and Clairol nice ‘n easy

Maybe I should have titled this article, The Two Times I Got Orange Hair Courtesy of PINCHme and Clairol nice n’ easy. I am the type of person who will sometimes give things (and people) a second chance even when they’ve proven they do not deserve it. That happened with this hair color. After the one I mentioned in my free samples article failed, I convinced myself that I owed it to the brand to try it again before writing my review. That one was a different color, Medium Ash Blonde 8A, and maybe this color would not be as bad. It could have been user error, I told myself. Yes, I victim blamed. My Spring 2018 Walmart Beauty Box had a coupon for another free box of nice ‘n easy. Thankfully, I forgot about it, and the coupon expired before I could redeem it.

The number of samples available varies. On sample days, you may find zero available based on your profile. Other times, you may find six. These are two different orders. I ordered them on 02/23/16 and 03/04/16. They arrived a few days apart in mid March. Shipping usually takes 4-6 weeks, so this was faster than usual. The survey deadline is 05/05/16. 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.
