Not everyone knows this, but Amazon Alexa will give you free samples if you ask. This Alexa hack sounds too good to be true, but I tried it out myself and it’s 100% legit.

Amazon Alexa Free Samples Available Now

Right now, you can get a free sample of Black Forest Gummy Bears (reg $2.79). This snack typically retails for $2.79, but is absolutely free while supplies last.

Please note that any samples are available via Alexa only, using the directions listed below. If you buy these directly from Amazon, you’ll have to pay the original price on the product listing.

Alexa has offered beef jerky samples from Lorissa’s Kitchen, Spindrift samples, and DripDrop samples in the past.

First, you’ll need to enable the “Send Me a Sample” skill in your Alexa App.

You’ll need to add the “Send Me a Sample” skill to your device. The skill is completely free to add, and the samples ship free. You don’t have to input any payment methods at all. And, you don’t even need to be a Prime member to cash in on the deal. So in this case, it truly is a freebie.

You can add the skill via the Alexa App, or through the skill’s Amazon page. (Unfortunately, you can’t add it directly through Alexa herself. But she will give you instructions!) Once you enable the skill, you’ll need to create and link your Send Me a Sample account. The account itself is pretty easy to set up. You just need to confirm your age, email address, and shipping address. If you miss a step, Alexa will tell you what needs to be done to get the skill up and running.

Some samples are age-restricted.

There’s a pretty big variety of freebies available, but there are some limitations. Remember when you needed to confirm your age? That’s because sometimes there are alcohol or energy drink samples. Amazon follows the laws and ordinances of your area. So for example, in the UK you’ll have to confirm you’re older than 18 for alcohol, but in America, you’ll need to confirm you’re older than 21.

New Amazon Alexa samples arrive throughout the year.

The samples are only available while supplies last. But, there are new samples being added frequently to replace the out-of-stock items. Be sure to check your Alexa app or often to see what’s in stock.

You can ask for multiple samples at a time, so long as they’re all different products. In other words, you can only get one of each product per mailing address. You can select to receive only the samples you request or opt to automatically receive samples similar to the ones you tried before.
