Each Sunday I do a roundup of what was in my mailbox that week. This is a great place to find new samples that you can request, as well as learn a few things about free samples and what might be showing-up in your mailbox next.
*REMINDER* Bloggers, this is your last chance to enter the giveaway for a custom header designed by Purple Baobab Design. It closes tonight at midnight (CST) and the winner will be announced tomorrow morning in Money 4 Mom.
What’s in my mailbox this week?
These freebies are still available to request:
Kotex – 4 Samples – They love to mail me samples and coupons. So many that it’s hard to keep track of where they are all coming from – I think this one is from entering the Perfect Fit Sweeps – but be sure you request all 4 samples that are currently available! You’ll get lots of coupons with them!
Always Infinity – I’m guessing this sample came directly from P&G;, since I already got my sample from Walgreens and it didn’t come in a blue box so it wasn’t my sample from Walmart.
Nature’s Bounty Tote – I was so thrilled to get this in the mail, that it is the best free sample for October.
Toys ‘R Us $3 off $3 Coupon – My youngest son turns 2 this month, and Toys ‘R Us mailed us this coupon to celebrate. Of course it is a challenge to buy something for FREE with that $3 coupon – but great that they don’t require a high minimum purchase in order to use it. I’ve heard from some readers that they got a $5 coupon, maybe they send these out to the older kids?
Kraft Food & Family – This is a great free magazine to get that includes recipes, coupons, and in the Holiday/Winter issue there are recipe cards to punch out and gift tags with a truffle recipe on the back.
Tide Total Care $1 Coupon – Sometimes you think you will be getting a sample, and instead you get only a coupon. I’m guessing that one of my sample requests here or here was just a coupon (maybe they ran out of samples?).
Vocalpoint – As a member of Vocalpoint I get great coupons in my mailbox – this time for Starkist Tuna. I encourage you to sign-up for this “word-of-mouth” sampling program, it’s very easy to participate in – all you have to do is share the coupons!
These freebies are no longer available or were a special sampling opportunity:
Hershey’s Bliss – Just in time for Halloween, my coupon for free Hershey’s Bliss Chocolates arrived. I won the coupon in this sweeps, you could actually win more than once. I’ll be sending this special coupon to the winner of my 1,000 Coupons Giveaway.
John Frieda Luxurious Volume – I got this sample from Walmart and it included a coupon to Save $2 that doesn’t expire until 5/31/2010. It’s no longer available to request, but get more free samples from Walmart.
Asics Socks from Self Magazine – Sometimes magazines offer freebies, but I usually don’t get them in my mailbox (probably because they just run-out quickly). Well, Self Magazine did a one-day sign-up for the Self Challenge and sent everyone a pair of Asics socks. I got them in my mailbox, so now Self magazine will be on my list as a magazine that comes thru on their freebie offers.
Magazines – Woman’s Day and Traditional Home – these free sample offers are no longer available, but please check out my Free Magazines 4 Mom for the best sources of free magazines.
That’s it! Another fabulous week of free sampling. So, what was in your mailbox this week? I can’t wait to hear from you, please leave a comment!
If you are curious, here’s what other freebies I’m getting in my mailbox.
