Do You Love Free Stuff Like I Love Free Stuff!

I love getting new things, especially when I get those those things for free. One of the best things of living in a digital world is how easy it makes it to get receive free products from companies in exchange for reviewing and sharing their newest products on your social media accounts.

The past two years I have joined 3 programs that send me products several times during the year and allow me to indulge in my love for free stuff. If you love free stuff like I love free stuff, and you have a Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, and/or blog,  here are the programs that you should be joining ASAP : 

1. Influenster 


Influenster is the go-to destination for trendsetters who want to be rewarded for their influence. Qualified members gain access to the latest products, share their expert opinions and spread the word on their favorite discoveries.

Why I Love Them: I have gotten a variety of great products from Influenster, including Beanitos chips, Rimmel London mascara, Swiss Miss hot chocolate mix, Jergens moisturizer, Skinnygirl snack bars, barkThins, Blue Diamond cashews, and most recently YSL lipsticks and c. Booth bath products. Many of the products that I have received I had never used before and ended up liking them so much I added them to my monthly shopping list.

2. Smiley 360


Do you love to try new products and services? Have you ever tried a product and thought, "This would be so much better if..." As a Smiley member, you can provide this kind feedback directly to the source, as well as share what you think with your friends, both online and offline. Smiley members get inside and exclusive looks at new brands, new products, and new online content -- how cool is that?




Why I Love Them: I have gotten some pretty interesting products from Smiley 360, including a Sleep Number foam pillow (valued at $200), 5-hour Energy drinks, a K-Y vibrator, Bona wet cleaning pads, Boursin cheese, and most recently Goodness Knows snack bars, Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails gummies, and Accuflora probiotic supplements.  I always look forward to seeing what new products they are offering for review. I use several of the products I received in my everyday life, particularly the Sleep Number foam pillow.

3. PINCHme


PINCHme is the premier online destination for consumers to DISCOVER and DISCUSS consumer products. For manufacturers, PINCHme is a revolutionary platform built to promote consumer products to motivated consumers - delivering AWARENESS, ENGAGEMENT, INSIGHTS and, most importantly, SALES. PINCHme provides manufacturers with access to a targeted membership database, distributing their samples to a uniquely curated demographic of consumers. Members are encouraged to provide feedback while able to purchase the products they like directly through the PINCHme platform.


Why I Love Them: I have gotten samples of some pretty good products from PINCHme, including Gevalia iced coffee, Summer's Eve nighttime cleansing cloths, Gold Bond healing lotion, Olay body wash, and Pure Via sweetener. Unlike the other two programs, PINCHme usually sends its members sample sizes, and not full sizes, of the complimentary products they are asked to review. The good thing is if you do not like a product, you don't end up wasting a majority of it when you discard it. But if you like the sample of the product, you have gotten enough to sway you to later purchase it.
