Free samples & coupons

I love getting the mail everyday. I have signed up for so many free magazine subscriptions and free samples that I get something fun in the mail all the time. One of my favorite ways to get free products and coupons is from word of mouth advertising. Word of mouth advertising is where companies give you free products or coupons to try in hopes that you will spread the word. Best of all everything is free for you! Before you apply for any of these let me give you a few tips I've learned along the way.
  • Open a separate email account to give all of these companies. I have a friends/family email address and a spam email address. They will send out periodic emails.
  • Log onto these different websites a few times a month just to make sure you aren't missing anything.
  • Fill in surveys and other information they ask for. Most are short and only take a few minutes.
  • Enjoy the free samples and coupons!

Here are some of my favorites:

Vocalpoint is my favorite one. I have received so many different free items and coupons. A few weeks ago I was sent a sample of the new Kashi cereal and a coupon for a free box. They seem to send out the most free stuff and you don't really have to do very much. They also have fun articles and information on the site. Just click Here to sign up.

Kraft First Taste program sends out coupons for new Kraft items. I received a coupon for a free Velvetta Mac and Cheese a few months ago. Click Here to join.

General Mills Psst..... is the next one. Just today I got a package with one free bag of Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters and 9 high value coupons. This program is just starting but I'm excited to see what else they send out. Click Here to join.

I got a free Fitness Magazine subscription from Shespeaks and samples I've requested. It is also a fun website where you can get product reviews and other information. Click Here to join.

BzzAgent is the last one because you have to do the most work to get anything. You have to complete a lot of reviews and and surveys to get anything but once you have done that you can become part of a "campaign" where they send you a box full of a new products and samples to give out to people. Right now I am involved in the Burts Bees Acne Solution campaign and have been trying it for free, so far I love the product so if you want to put in a little extra work join BzzAgents. They also use a different points system called MyPoints to award you. Click here to join.

If you have any questions or would like further information on any of this just leave a comment or email me!
