I love FREE swag! I also enjoy trying out new products, so I’m always looking for ways to get my hands on free samples. There are many freebie websites on the internet that promise scam-free, gimmick free product samples. Many of these sites are fine, but some are not, so sometimes it is best to go directly to the source. We have compiled a list of some of the best free sample sites on the web. These companies want to reward their loyal customers with freebies as well as welcome new customers by getting them to try out one of their great products.

You should definitely zip on over and like Sunstar GUM’s Facebook page because they love to do promotions and product giveaways.

If you haven’t taken advantage of the offers this magazine company puts out there you should do it right now! Over the last 12 months I have received limited time subscriptions (usually 6 or 12 months) for the following popular magazines completely FREE: Women’s Fitness, ESPN Magazine, Wired, Ladies Home Journal, US Magazine and Rolling Stone! Head to Mercury Magazine’s website and see which publications they have available now.
These next two aren’t exactly “direct-to-the-source” but some of the bigger retailers have really great sample programs and the ones from Kmart and Target are the best.
Kmart’s website may be a freebie finders dream come true! They have a Savings Center where every week the retailer links to a number of brands offering samples of their products. This week they are linking through to Eucerin lotion, Breathe Right nasal strips, Prilosec, Emergen-C, and Depends. Even though they are just redirecting you to the manufacturer’s website or Facebook page it’s a great one-stop-shop for finding multiple freebies on one page, making it one of the best free sample sites on the web.
Walmart isn’t the only big retail chain that gives away samples to their customers. Target also has a program called the Target Sample Spot. On their website you can click on any samples you’d like to get, then answer the applicable survey questions. These samples sell out fast – right now their website says that someone just ordered the last one – so check back often. Usually their free samples range from personal care products, food freebies, and cleaning samples; things such as Wisk laundry detergent or free GoodNites underwear for kids.
