PINCHme: Free Name Brand Samples!!

Note: The next PINCHme sample box goes live tomorrow (May 16) at 12 pm EST. You must register before you can request samples and they go fast!


Every time I see a new product mentioned in on online ad or on the television I make a mental note. I love trying the latest and greatest products when they’re released. Whether it’s a new pet food, household cleaner or food staple, you can count on me to run out and purchase it so I can give it a try. Most times I’ll go back and buy the items again or put them on my weekly list. Unfortunately, my love of trying new products can get a little costly. You know how it is, you want to try everything but sometimes your budget groans in protest.

This is where PINCHme comes in. If you have a love for trying new samples of products that you’ve been waiting for but don’t have the extra cash to always be spending, PINCHme is the perfect service for you. They provide samples of all the latest products and send them directly to your door each month but the absolute best part is that it’s all FREE. PINCHme lets you discover new and exciting brands at no cost.
PINCHme is comprised of over 2.3 million members and allows you to discover and try free samples from leading brand names that you love. Every month they provide these free samples in an assortment of amazing categories. Not only do these samples include items that pertain to all areas of your life but benefits from joining also include exclusive special partner offers, sweepstakes, product review opportunities and other fun promotions.
The only thing they ask of their consumers is to provide them with your honest feedback about each sample. Their sample categories range from beauty, cleaning products, household items, personal, care, baby, pets and more. Each month they release their Sample Tuesday box and encourage users to sign up this month as they release their next round of freebies on January 24th at 12 Noon Est so you can claim your free samples.
Here is a picture of my most recent box from PINCHme. I must say that they really do read your answers that you fill out as part of your profile! I know this because EVERY product in my box, is something I like or want to try!
I received: 
McCormick Organics Taco Seasoning
Goddess Garden Mineral Removing Cleanser
Goddess Garden Dream Repair
Blistix Ultra Moisturizing Bliss Flip
Scotch Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth
Hyland’s Good Morning Tablets
Popcorners Chips
Starbucks Caramel Caffe Latte K Cup Pods (see they really do know me!) 
Every box is different and it will depend on how thoroughly you fill out your questionnaires and how quick you are to claim your samples on sample Tuesday!
This September PINCHme is celebrating your furry friends. The months samples will include names such as Purina One, Purina Puppy, Chow, Greenies and Beyond. Just head over to their website and make sure you fill in the PETS section of your profile so you’re qualified to receive the samples.
Also, if you’re a fan of snacks like I am then you’ll be doubly pleased with Septembers box. This month they’ll be sending out samples of Carnival Kettle Chips from PopCorners and Taco & Chili Seasoning Mix from McCormick’s.
If you love free samples as much as I do and want the chance to get your hands on some of the items I mentioned above and then some, I recommend signing up for PINCHme. The service is 100% free of cost and will never ask for your credit card number. This isn’t your average sample box, people. It comes with a lot of different samples to choice from and includes samples for pets, household, beauty, baby and more!
Better even than free samples (if that’s even possible) is that they also offer their members the chance to take part in special partner offers as well as exclusive sweepstakes each week. Each box will include between 3-5 samples and range from this months samples as well as past samples as well.
How to join: 
  • Become a Pincher
  • Pick your samples. On Sample Tuesday pick samples to add to your box.
  • Provide your honest feedback.
When you’ve signed up and are completing your unique profile, it’s important to fill it out as much as possible. This allows the folks behind PINCHme to bring you the best opportunities available at the time and to match you with relevant samples. The more they know about you, the better the chances you’ll have to receive samples that are relevant to your individual preferences.
It’s important to sign up for your box as soon as possible on Sample Tuesdays. Due to the free nature of the PINCHme platform, it isn’t guaranteed that everyone who signs up will be sent a sample box. All samples are available while supplies last and on a first come first served basis so signing up as soon as Sample Tuesday goes live is important to ensure that you get your free samples for the month.
I received free products to review from PINCHme, however all opinions are my own.
