Shopping Single Saturday - 07/31/2010

Without further ado, here is tip number two:
Make the most of free samples! Pretty cool, huh?:-)

Where and how do you get free samples? 
  • Get yourself a free Google/GMail account to use.
  • Sign up on product web sites
  • Check sites like's Daily Free Sample page and's Free Samples page
  • Hey, It's Free
  • Facebook - lots of product fan pages have special free sample or coupon offers.
  • Get yourself a free Google/GMail account and subscribe to RSS feeds using Google Reader. It's not as hard as it sounds, and you'll be able to scan multiple freebie and coupon sites regularly fairly quickly. It's a LOT easier than going back and forth from web site to web site every day! To see how it works, check out these YouTube videos - Google Reader in Plain English and Google Reader: Getting Started.
  • Kraft has a great program called Kraft First Taste. They'll send you samples and coupons for free products every few months. You can sign up for free at
  • If you like SoBe water and drinks, or haven't tried them yet, head over to and play the SoBe "Heads or Tails?" game. You can enter daily to win free stuff and 9 times out of 10, you'll get a coupon you can print on your computer for a BOGO SoBe (that's Buy One, Get One FREE). Combine that with a sale like the upcoming BOGO sale at CVS starting on Sunday, and you've got yourself two free 20 oz. bottles of SoBe!
Next week - Where to find those free samples!
