Amazon Now Sending out Free Samples to Users Based on Their Buying Habits

Other

Do you believe this is a attempt to gain more personal information from us?

Some of the products Amazon lists as being eligible for free samples include dog food, groceries, beauty products and health supplements. In other words: Items you would buy repeatedly. It’s easy to see why brands would pay to be a part of this program, especially if they are able to convince shoppers to go with their dog food or coffee over a brand they have been loyal to when shopping on Amazon in the past.

Well other companies will pay Amazon to join the programme where they can send samples to other customers to promote their products

I think other companies giving out the samples could gain access to our data such as name and address

Amazon in the UK tried this... Mostly they give the money back. So u buy a product sample and get credit what comes off when u purchase the full size.

The sample program is different in the USA

Great news I opted in. Does anyone know if I'll get dispatch emails since I'm not always in?

Do you think they would send me a free sample of a Aston Martin DB7?
