SheFinds News: Make Snail Mail Work For You

It’s amazing what 100 stamps and a little free time can get you. For Tom Locke, that combo bred the $39 Experiment, in which Tom mailed short letters to 100 companies asking for free samples. He chronicles his findings in a handy chart on his website, where he lets thrifty readers know which companies doled out the goods (Gatorade, Burt’s Bees, and Mercedes Benz all anted up free products) and which ones left him hanging (Biore, Kraft, and Trader Joe’s all declined his requests.) If you want an in on all kinds of free goodies but don’t want to pony up the time or cash for a letter-writing campaign, you’re in luck — the Internet is chock full of free sample offers. Try typing “beauty freebies” or “free cosmetic samples” into your search engine and prepare to be inundated! There are some sites, like Cool Savings.com, that will hook you up in exchange for you filling out a survey. Other sites collect offers from around the Internet and update daily (Free Stuff Channel is a good place to start.) If there’s a specific product you can’t wait to test drive, go straight to the source; lots of cosmetic companies will send you free goods if you visit the “Free Sample” or “Special Offer” pages on their websites. Where to start? Cover Girl, Dove, Rimmel, and Garnier are all itching to put gratis samples of their newest products in your mailbox.
