Did you know companies send out freebies by mail in exchange for reviews and customer feedback? Who doesn’t want to know how to get free products from companies? You’ve just got to know which companies and how to ask. Don’t worry, I’ve got you!

I’ve compiled a list of the top freebies from companies around the web, according to users. I’ve signed up for all of these and have found it takes awhile to receive free stuff, so be patient! Gotten freebies? Please share in the comments!

Just one caveat, though. While these are free, they will cost you your data, which many of these companies, if not all, will sell to marketing lists, and you’ll be flooded with spam. What I did was create a new Gmail account, sign up for a Google Voice phone number (all free), and give my office address for delivery. If you have a P.O. Box, even better. All of this to avoid spam.

You can also check out the KCL Freebie Deals page to find more great deals and download the KCL app and you’ll get an alert when I see a new freebie!

Wanna text? I’ll send you a couple of the hottest deals each day — just send me a text at (208) 266-4466.

 

1. Become an Influenster to get free samples like Pantene, Always, and Downy.

All you need to do is create a profile, fill it out with your lifestyle and brand preferences, follow Influenster on all social media channels, and if you qualify, you’ll be sent a box to try out! Read Influenster’s Privacy Policy.

NOTE: Sometimes Influenster requires you to do a little extra to get a box, like take a “Shelfie” with a specific brand of shampoo or conditioner, or review products you currently use or have used.
