(Updated 3/13/20) I absolutely love free samples, especially the ones that show up in the mail and require very little effort on my part. From the aisles at Costco, to the companies that will send out their products for you to try, they’re a fun no-brainer way to try new stuff. It’s with this in mind that I found a bunch of companies that will send out samples for free by mail, often with NO strings attached. I’ll be sure to keep this article up-to-date as I find new companies that offer freebies. Here’s my current list.
Simply sign-up for the Members Only Program with Betty Crocker and you’ll get monthly free samples by mail and coupons sent directly to you.
Free samples are on a first come, first serve basis. They’ll send out an email notification when they’re available to you.
I love General Mills products like Cheerios, Chex, Green Giant, and even Häagen-Dazs.
So when I discovered a way to get free samples, I was on it like “white on rice”.
Their free program is called the Mills Advisory Panel and in exchange for a bunch of free samples, they only ask for your honest opinion of their products.
Sign-up for the Gillette newsletter and score free samples, coupons, and exclusive offers.
I’ve personally receive free razors and shaving cream at least twice a year for the past few years.
Become a product tester with HomeSchool.com and get cool free books, kits, and school supplies to test out.
They never release a product without running it by their testers first which gives you a great opportunity to score a bunch of great free samples.
Johnson & Johnson
Sign-up for J&J’s “Friends & Neighbors” program and you’ll get regular invitations to test out new products.
Your opinion is very important to Johnson & Johnson and they’re willing to give you a bunch of free products in exchange for your honest thoughts.

In return, Mead only asks for your honest opinion of their products.

Sign-up for free and get P&G samples delivered to your doorstep.
Brands include Crest, Always, Downy, Tide, Olay, and Mr. Clean to name a few.
Some samples are delivered with no catch, and some require you to answer a few questions about your experience with the product.
If you love Sephora, or are curious about their beauty line, visit their free samples web page.
Simply select 3 free samples, add them to your basket, and get them sent for free. The one catch is they do require you to purchase something at regular price to get the free samples.
Join their StrongMoms program and get up to $400 in free perks.
These include free baby formula samples and a bunch of coupons for future Similac purchases.
If you’re a fan of Snuggle fabric softener, why not get a bunch of free samples by mail when you sign-up for their Snuggle Bear Den club.
