Hey, are you wasting your money on buying expensive products when you could get free samples without paying a dime? There are tons of opportunities for free samples from companies that are eager to have you test out their products free of charge, but most people have no clue that they exist. From food to beauty products to video games, you can find free samples of pretty much any kind of product you're looking for. The trick is to do a little research and do not make any spur-of-the-moment purchases before seeing if there are better deals out there.
The reason that many people do not want to take the time to collect on free offers is that they do not think they have the time for it; after all, it's faster to just buy a cheap product at the store than wait for weeks for free samples to arrive. Admittedly, that makes sense, and it would be silly to put off brushing your teeth just because you're waiting for a sample of some toothpaste. But by planning ahead, you could save lots of money on tons of products by doing just a little bit of research.
Believe it or not, a lot of the products you purchase in stores include an opportunity for you to send away for samples of other similar products from that company. Start paying attention to the packaging of the products you purchase, rather than just tossing it out, and you'll be surprised at how many free samples you can have sent directly to your home. Although it may take a few weeks, those samples could save you hundreds of dollars over the course of the coming year.
With the advent of the Internet, finding samples is becoming even easier. Every major company has a website, and with a little hunting you're bound to find free sample offers that could put their products in your hands in only a few days. Oftentimes, all you have to do to receive samples online is fill out a short form detailing your address and shopping preferences. It's really that easy!
In fact, even much more expensive products may offer some sort of samples in order to help you make a shopping decision. Take computer games, for example. Obviously, a company is not likely to send you a hundred dollar game without charge, but many may offer samples of one level of a game for you to try out at home. If you enjoy the free sample, these companies hope you'll pay the money to try the whole game.
So before you rush out and buy an expensive product at the store, take a few minutes to do some online research and see if samples are available to try. It may take some extra work, but it could end up saving you lots of money.
