What Do We Do?
Here at Crazy For Samples we scour the web searching for freebies, giveaways, contests and the occasional high value coupon. Having all this information in one place is a great way to ensure that you never miss a deal and that you hear about it before its gone! We provide you with quite a few ways of getting this information as quickly and easily as possible. Don’t want to constantly visit our site waiting for the next freebie? Simply Join our mailing list. We send out the top samples of the day 7 days a week, 365 days a year! You can also follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, follow us on Tumblr and we are even on Pinterest! These social sites make it easy for you to see our updates the second we post them!
Please keep in mine that we share offers that we find from all over the internet but we do not actually send out the freebies. For instance, let’s say JCPenny’s is giving away free samples of perfume to the first 10,000 fans that like their Facebook page. We would post about this offer to let all of our fans and followers know. We have no control of the offer and do not actually send it out. We simply provide you with the who, how and where so that you can order the sample for yourself.
How Can You Get Freebies?
For the most part, we will link to the offer page… This means you simply need to enter your mailing information and the company will send out your sample in due time. If, however, there are special instructions, like having to like their page or leave a review, we will mention it in our post. Since most of our posts are straight forward and just a few lines long, spotting special instructions is fairly easy.
What To Expect
There are certain things you may want to keep in mind if you begin order freebies on a regular basis:
Many times a company will run out of samples before they take down the form. Which means that there will be times when you may not get a sample even though you ordered it.
Shipping out thousands of samples takes time. The average wait time for a sample is 4-8 weeks, though we have gotten then a quickly as a few days and as late as several months after requesting them.
Though sometimes we will post full size freebies, most of the samples you will get are “sample sized” and one time use products.
When it comes to contests, don’t get your hopes up. Every contests is different, some offer more prizes than others, but when they are posted on line, the spread very quickly and 10s or 100s of thousands of people are entering. While there is still a legitimate chance of winning, you should think of them in a realistic way and understand your odds of winning will often be very low.
We personally vet every sample we post and have been ordering freebies since 2008. While we have gotten very good at spotting scams, some of these people are very clever. If you want to make sure you are as safe as possible, keep in mind that a freebie site should never ask for more than they need to get you that sample. In most cases, this is simply your name and mailing address and possible your email address, nothing more. You should never give out any sensitive information in order to get a sample.
Now that the introductions are out of the way, please enjoy all the samples!
