Sample Sites/Review Sites

*** Disclaimer – Referral links were used on this page. I receive no monetary value for any of the links. This is not a sponsored post, none of these sites knew I was creating this page. ***

It was suggested to me that this would be good as both a post and a site page, so I am putting this up so that you all have the best of both worlds. I will just update it as I go I guess, haha.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Here is the List of Sites I checked, when I first started to look into getting samples to try out products before I purchased them. Since I live in Canada, I primarily focused on sites that were Canadian or had a tab for Canadians.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Free Sample Sites

Munchkin Sandwich – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories

Freebies.com – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories, Points System to win Prizes

Save a Loonie – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories, Contests as well

I love Savings – Not very active, but have a few nice beauty offers from time to time

Today’s Free Stuff – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories, Contests as well

Canadian Savers – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories, Contests as well

Red Flag Deals – This site has all sorts of things, I find it really different

Free Stuff Finder – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories

Canadian Free Stuff – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories, Contests as well

Canadian Coupons – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories

Gimmie Freebies – Samples & Contests, also has a great guide on Fake Free Samples

My Savings – Samples & Coupons in all sorts of Categories, Contests as well, Mostly USA

The Balance Everyday – Lots of USA offers, have to sift to find North American

Free Fly’s – Lots of USA offers, have to sift to find North American, very few Beauty offers

These are the ones I use to find things on. The last 3 you really have to sift through, most offers are just for the USA.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Companies that send out samples for other Brands

Sampler – Toronto based Sample company that works with Leading Brands to get samples in the hands of the right consumer. It is all based on the information you give them when you sign up.

I have received 2 products so far from this site, so it works.

Reviews so far:

Starbucks – Via Instant Coffee

Other Products:

Lancôme – Advanced Génifique Serum

Brokedown Vanity - Free Mail Sample - Package

Sample Source – Sample Site that ships out Samples and Coupons. They do a Spring and Fall pack, as well as little offers though the year. You have to sign up and fill everything out. When Sample time comes, they will send an email, and you log in and select your samples.

I have received the Spring 2018 box from this site, so it works.

18 Samples and full sized products, as well as coupons, came in my package.

Brokedown Vanity - Sample Source - Spring 2018 - Opened

TopBox – A Canadian Subscription Box Site, which also sometimes send out samples to subscribers. Just sign up with your email for a chance to learn about new samples. You will get emails about the TopBox Subscription boxes too, there is no way to just get the notices for the samples.

I have received 2 samples from this site so far, so it works.

Reviews so far:

Garnier – Whole Blends Gentle Shampoo & Conditioner

Other Products:

John Frieda – Current Offer, just click HERE, then fill out the form

Brokedown Vanity - Free Mail Sample - John Frieda - 2

Social Nature – This site specializes in Vegan, Organic, Naturally Sourced, Fair Trade, and so on, products. They have offers for Canada and the States, you just have to look to the flag to see what is offered where. If you would like to try and item, just “Heart” it. You will be brought to the product page, and will have to fill out a “under a minute” questionnaire. If you get accepted for the sample, they send you an email. You just have to click the Accept button, and then the sample will be yours.

I have been accepted for one item, and it is in the process of being shipped.

AOR – Oral Probiotic

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Testing Panels

The Pink Panel – You sign up, fill out all your info honestly, and then they will use that info to match you up with Companies looking for product testers. You will normally get an email, which will link to the Product Survey. Fill that out. After everyone does their surveys, they will pick who they want as their testers. They will send you another email, if you are selected.

I just got my first survey today(April 27th), so I have yet to actually complete the full process.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Review Sites

Chick Advisor – Create an account, post reviews, gain badges and points. They have a Product Review Club, which gives you a chance to get items to review, and they also have other products that you can get by filling our really quick surveys. Those are normally to a limited number of people, so it all just depends on what the company is looking for in a reviewer.

I primarily use this site for finding out information on items I might want to purchase. I like the site, it is fun.

Influenster – Create an account, post reviews, gain badges and points. Depending on your snaps, activities, badges, impact, you can get placed on the short list for a VoxBox(which is a box of free items). If you get the email you are on the short list, click the survey link, fill it out, and wait for your confirmation.

I primarily use this site for finding out information on items I might want to purchase. I am more active here, like to talk to some of the people, and review here more often. There is an area where you can get discount codes too, for when you are shopping.

Bzzagent – Create an account, fill out surveys. Eventually you will be placed into a campaign they feel suits you. You can accept or decline. Depending on the campaign, you will have various tasks to complete, in order to do you part. You earn more BzzScore, when you do your activities in your campaign. Completing campaigns makes it easier to get into additional campaigns.

I am currently in progress for my first campaign.

Brokedown Vanity - BzzAgent - 1st Package - Opened

Smiley360 – Create an account, fill out profile and do your offers. You will gain points and badges, which help qualify you for other offers.

I am really new to this site, so I am still learning all about it. The only sample offer I got was for the USA only, so I could not participate in any sample offers yet. It has only been a few days though.

Shopper’s Army – Create an account, fill out profile. Play Heart or Hide, which basically is how they know what products you are interested in. After I “played” until complete, I received my first 3 offers. Once you have picked the products you would like to review, you have 3 days to purchase said products. You have to physically get the items yourself or order them online. After their many step process(which you need pictures, receipt and written review), you can get your rebate in the form of a cheque, PayPal payment or as Amazon Credit(code or physical card). Payment forms have different processing times, depending on what you pick.

I am still in the process of this one, not having received payments yet. I wanted to try both the Amazon Credit and a Cheque, to see how long it takes. All Items I chose to participate in were for items I was already planning on purchasing anyway.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

That is it so far, I will update this as I find new sites, or get in on new programs.

The actual Site Page will always be up top, and I will have this post floating around on the site as well.

If you know of any that I missed, for Canadians, please let me know, I will check it out and add it.

Hope this is helpful!

Helen
