Why Do so Few Free Samples Arrive?

Freebies

Hi everyone. Cut to the chase. I request a lot of samples but never recieve a large amount of them. Lets say lucky to get 2 in 20. Do other members encounter the same return ?

I always get the sopost ones I apply for. I tend to get the majority of the ones that I apply for but not all of them. I just apply for them and then wait to see what shows up. I don't keep a count of the samples that I apply for so not sure about numbers.

I find the majority of sopost ones do arrive. You have to be fast though. I missed on the garnier & cadburys chocolate.

ShellyAnn Totally agree that you need to be fast! I miss out on them sometimes as I am in work and don't see them in time! I also only apply for what I want so I notice I have a higher success rate.

SandyRhodes It is one of the ways in which companies send out the freebies. Latest deals puts the links up on fb and you apply through the link.

To be honest the majority don't come. Between October-Jan, when I was new to this, I would be applying for everything. I've learnt that some companies are dodgy and the same companies pop up every month and no freebies come. There's a lot of data miners out there getting info off people. The key to it is to only apply for ones that are from legit companies. Use scam adviser. https://www.scamadviser.com/ If it looks legit, you have to be fast. you need to apply really within the 1st hour of the freebie being listing anywhere. After that I find even if you get a confirmation email, it will not arrive. companies have a small amount of freebies and you have to be like lightening to get them. now I don't apply for everything, my success rate has gone up. If it is a small family run business, your chances of getting samples are slim as they can't afford to send them out.
