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, we’ve got you!
Additionally, sample box companies actually charge brands to be included in their monthly sample boxes. The only cost to you is the time it takes you to write up a review of the free product samples you receive. Not bad, huh?
You can also check out our freebie deals page to find more great deals.
Check out our list of free products by mail:
