Free Sample Boxes! Who Wants One? 19+ Options

Some of the links inside this post may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

If you’re a fan of freebies like I am, then you’re going to love the companies I’m about to mention.

Whether it’s food, candy, beauty items or a pack of coupons, there are so many companies willing to send you something for free in hopes you turn into a customer.  Some do it so that you can provide feedback to help improve their products.   The best thing is that it will be a box filled with related goodies, from samples to coupons.  It really is endless.

To take advantage, all it takes from you is your contact information and that’s about it.

If you want a free sample box to show up on your doorstep, below are some of my favorites ways to get a freebie delivered.  Put away your credit card as everything I’m about to mention is 100% free with no strings attached.

How to Get Free Sample Boxes (Free Shipping)

PINCHme

PINCHme is one of my favorite ways to get free samples almost all of the time.  It’s a company I reviewed in the past, and I highly recommend you at least sign up to see what kind of freebies you can take advantage of.

In short, to receive your sample box, you will first need to let PINCHme know a bit about yourself, such as your shopping habits, demographics, etc.  They do this so that they can be certain they are sending you something that you can actually benefit from.  After all, you wouldn’t want a men’s grooming kit if you were a female.

After you fill out the very short questionnaire, you can then pick out the samples you want to try.  They vary every month as they continue to add new inventory, but most of what you do receive will come from major brands you have heard of.

To learn more about the company, be sure to follow the link below and at least sign up.  PINCHme continues to send sample boxes every month as long as you request them, making it one of the better options on the list.



Amazon Product Sampling

If you’re an Amazon member (which I’m sure you are), Amazon has a product sampling program, but the only downfall is that it seems to be at random as to who gets the samples.

To increase your chances, however, you will want to following this link, head to your preferences page linked on that page and then check off the categories you’re interested in.

As long as you have an active Amazon account, then you will be eligible to receive the free samples.  Again, Amazon seems to send them at random with your orders, but it doesn’t hurt to at least set your preferences to increase your chances at getting one.

Influenster

Influenster works a bit like PINCHme, only that it’s catered more toward influencers.  So, if you have a following on social media, then it may be a platform to consider.

What’s known as a VoxBox, the company will often send out full-sized products to its members for testing purposes.  The items you receive, mostly from well-known companies, are then reviewed on your social media profile.

While it’s not guaranteed you will receive a box, you can increase your chances by downloading an app, filling out a profile and then connecting your social media profile.  If one of the thousands of brands they work with like your demographic, you may receive a free sample box.

To learn more, I went ahead and linked to an in-depth blog post, explaining how the the process works as well as how you can take advantage.

BzzAgent

BzzAgent is another option, working just like Influenster and PINCHme.

To get your free sample boxes, it’s as easy as signing up, completing surveys and then watching your email for invites.  If they company thinks you’re a great fit for a campaign, they will send you an email with more information as well as a link to sign up for a free box.

What you get will greatly vary on your demographics, but the company does work with a ton of name-brands.  Seeing it’s free, at least sign up and fill out a profile to see what you can get.

If you are lucky enough to get something, then you will be asked to test the products, share your experience and then share the “Bzz” on social media.  At the end, you will complete a post-campaign survey to share your thoughts.

Refer to the link below for more information in how it works.

Smiley360

As I write this, Smiley360 has more than 1 million “Smiley” members who try products for free in exchange for their feedback.

Yes, like the many I already listed, it works in the same way.  Create an account, sample the free products catered to you and then share your feedback at the end to help brands learn more about their products.  Many times, you will receive a free sample box filled with products from varying brands.

Smiley360 was launched in 2009 to help brands communicate with their customers.

Joining is 100% free and only takes three steps to get samples delivered straight to your door.

Daily Goodie Box

Daily Goodie Box is yet another company that will send you free sample boxes directly to your home in exchange for your thoughts.  No credit card is ever required and shipping is always 100% free.

To take advantage, you will first have to join and fill out a profile.  If your demographic fits an upcoming promotion, then you may get a Goodie Box, but it’s subject to availability.  After you receive it, share your thoughts about the products you received and hope for even more opportunity in the future.

According to the company, they have worked with many prominent brands, many of which you can view here.

Ripple Street

Ripple Street is said to be the leading influencer marketing program for connecting brands with their biggest fans.  They were founded to help build communities of authentic consumer influencers to help give brands the feedback they need to help drive sales.

To start receiving free sample boxes, coupons and/or exclusive offers, you’re asked to sign up for a free profile.  If approved, you are then asked to share the products with your family and friends as well as share it on your social media profiles.

I would highly recommend this option if you have a nice social media following or have the ability to throw a party to test out the samples given.  However, no party is required!

To get started, you can follow the link below to start the registration process.



Home Tester Club

The Home Tester Club is a pinch different than the others already mentioned as you will scan the database of current offerings and apply to it instead of waiting for the opportunities to come to you.

If you’re unfamiliar with the club, it’s a community of shoppers who test products and then share their reviews to help their fellow shoppers shop better.  To date, they have sent out thousands of products and deliver samples straight to your doorstep at no cost, according to the company’s official website.

In testing these products, they ask for your honest feedback, whether it’s good or bad.  It’s okay to be honest!

Not all items will be a sample box, per se, but it’s a freebie, nonetheless.  To sign up, follow the link below.  It’s 100% free to join.

Social Nature

Social Nature offers a variety of organic products, where you can click on the ones you want to try.  The cool thing about Social Nature is that you can check out the products they currently have to offer before you even sign up.  If it seems like something of interest, then you may want to sign up.

Like the many I already listed, if you want to get these sample sent to your door, you will have to sign up.  But, unlike most, you get to pick and choose the products you want to apply to.  In your application, the brand will want to know more about you, such as your demographics, shopping habits and so forth.  If they feel you’re a fit, then you could get approved, but there’s no guarantee, however.

To learn more about how it work and how you can get natural products delivered to your door for free, I linked to the official FAQ below.

Sampler.io

Sampler is a newer company that is said to send out free sample boxes up to twice a month.  From reading the reviews, it can range anywhere from beauty items to healthy stacks.

All you need to do is complete a profile, see which samples are matched to you and then click on the ones you want to sign up for.

If you are approved, it can take up to six weeks to receive your first box.

Shopper Army

The Shopper Army is your “curated hub” to find everyday new products right for you.  You get to try one of the thousands of products readily available and test them at home in exchange for your feedback.

Whether it’s “hearting” a product you’re in love with or classifying products, this is one to add to your list as well.

The company has been in business for more than 15 years, working with some of the world’s leading brands.  Create a free profile today to see what you can get sent to your door.

Blue Bottle Coffee

If you’re a fan of coffee, Blue Bottle Coffee will let you sample the many blends before you commit to a subscription plan.

Upon signing up, you can choose from a variety of blends, from Origins, Blends or Espresso options, and the company will ship it to your door.  If you’re happy with the taste, you can continue your subscription, but if you don’t like what you received, then you can cancel your subscription at any time.

Gwynnie Bee

Gwynnie Bee let’s you test out its program for 30 days, allowing you to discover clothing without limitations.

In short, you can try out top brands and keep what you like.  If you don’t like it, you can return it back to the company with a prepaid shipping label.  You get unlimited exchanges and it’s always free shipping.

Now, if you take part in the free 30-day subscription, you won’t be able to keep the clothes for free, but you could have a new wardrobe for the month, at least giving you a chance to try out brands.

SampleSource.com

SampleSource.com allows you to try samples before you buy, sending you small sample sizes to your home from well-known brands.  However, they won’t always have samples available since they ship out quickly.

Like the many I mentioned above, SampleSource.com works in a similar way.  You will be asked to fill out a profile, pick out the samples you want to try, and, if any are available, they will ship the items to your home.  It’s 100% free and will require no credit card on your part.

According to the company and its FAQ, they offer all sorts of samples, from makeup to household cleaning products to food products.

I went ahead and linked to the FAQ below, so check it out to learn more about how the company works and how you can get free samples delivered to your doorstep.

Mom’s Meet

As long as you’re a mom, you can apply to the Mom’s Meet panel to share your feedback, earn rewards and even connect with other moms.

This isn’t the best on this list since it’s targeted toward moms only, but it’s an option.  There’s a reason I’m listing it near the bottom of this list, however.

If interested in free samples, most of which are targeted to moms/soon-to-be moms, you will join the panel and create a profile much like the other sites.  Then, as a qualifying member, you can share your opinions as you receive samples at your door.  You can also earn points and rewards as you interact with the community.

At this moment, the company offers three free membership options.  You can learn more about what each one has to offer via the link below.

Walmart Baby Box

If you’re having a baby soon and are signing up for baby shower registries, then keep Walmart’s high on the list.

As part of the baby registry box, Walmart will send you a free welcome baby sample box filled with products from well-known baby brands, such as Huggies, Dreft, Dr. Brown’s and much more.

Of course, only consider this option if you’re having a baby or maybe even had a baby.  Fill out the form below to claim your free baby samples.

Final Thoughts

All of the companies I mentioned above are 100% legitimate and are bound to send you a free sample box sooner or later.  How many boxes you receive greatly depends on your demographic.  The companies providing samples themselves, however, will send you a product immediately!

Remember, there’s no limit as to how many companies you sign up for.  If you want to sign up for all of them, then by all means, do it!  It will only increase your chances since these companies work with different brands.

So, put away your credit card, fill out your profile and only hope you get some boxes delivered to your door.  Depending on your demographic, you will find a few that work for you, I promise.

Now, I leave it up to you.

Have you tried any of these companies?

Do you have any questions?
