If you know me or follow my posts, you know how much I love FREE stuff. When I hear someone say something about “no free lunch” or “you can’t get something for nothing”, I cringe a little. Um…. yes, you CAN get something for nothing, and it’s awesome! Here are a few of my favorite sites:
Influenster: This is one of the best out there. Connect your social media profiles, answer questions, earn “badges”, and receive a #Voxbox filled with products to try out and review. I have loved every box I’ve received. They almost always contain full sized products and it’s usually a wide variety. See my latest SuperMom Voxbox below.
House Party: I love HouseParty! It is what it sounds like. You sign up, apply to host a party for companies, and if you’re selected, you’ll get a box filled with FREE products and party favors. You just host a party, invite friends and family, give out the samples/coupons/favors/whatever, and post a group photo on the HouseParty website afterward. I’ve hosted parties for Hasbro, Wii, Budweiser, Littlest Pet Shop, Nerf, Keurig, Johnsonville, and so much more! You can also apply to their Chatterbox program, which is more like influenster in that no party is necessary. Just try out and review the products.
Crowdtap: Crowdtap represents dozens of brands. Answer questions, apply to sample products, post reviews, and more! I’ve sampled dresses and jeans from Old Navy, detergents, facial cleansers and lotions, makeup, medicine, and more. You can also get rewarded for earning points (by reviewing, answering questions, etc.). The program has changed since I first joined, so I’m actually a little rusty on how the rewards system works, but I’m sure it’s still fabulous.
PinchMe: This site releases new samples on Tuesdays. Just order the ones you want, and if they’re still available, your box will be shipped to you in 2-4 weeks. Try the products and complete a survey afterward letting them know what you think about the products. Check out my latest PinchMe box!
Bing Rewards: Earn points for searching on Bing (or even clicking on the homepage headlines or photo info). You can redeem your points for rewards like gift cards and free movie tickets (my fave) or for sweepstakes entries and/or donations. I prefer Bing anyway, so this one is super easy for me!
My Coke Rewards: This one isn’t exactly free, but if you (or a friend) buys Coke products, you can enter codes for points that you can redeem for awesome free stuff. I’ve gotten gift cards, movie tickets, amusement park tickets, a set of bowls, electronics, and more from My Coke Rewards. Again, not totally free since someone has to purchase the products for the codes, but once you enter the codes, there is no charge to redeem your points (no shipping charges either). Just read the fine print on the offers. I got the $20 off flowers one and it was total junk. With shipping and fees, I still ended up paying more than I would’ve at the local florist. But, most offers are totally free!
Vocalpoint: Check out this program from Vocalpoint for P&G. Participate in the community, connect your social media, and answer questions to qualify for samples and sweepstakes!
BzzAgent: Try products for FREE in exchange for your honest opinion! There is a wide variety of participating brands, and the community is really helpful if you need info on nearly any product.
