How to score freebies and avoid spam:

  • Never submit your credit or debit card info in return for free samples. Junk offers will send you multiple samples and then try to get you to pay for something.

  • Avoid questionable links. If the sample offer link redirects you to a sign-up page that’s not connected to a bigger website, it’s probably junk.

  • Be careful with emails. Some free sample ops will land in your spam folder, which is to be expected. If an address or link looks suspicious when you hover over it, though, it’s best to just avoid it.

How to get things for free with coupons:

At KCL, one of the main things we love to teach readers is how to coupon and get free stuff. We recommend shopping at CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, or Target for the most freebie deals each week. Each of the stores runs weekly promotions where if you buy a qualifying product you get a gift card. We turn those promotions into free things by stacking manufacturer coupons with the sale.

Sites that give away free samples:

1. Get free samples (and print coupons) from is a website that basically replaced the P&G newspaper coupon insert which was discontinued in early 2023. Signing up for a free account on gets you access to a list of printable coupons, as well as free samples by mail. Find samples beneath the ‘More’ menu.

2. Get free samples organized by category from Free Stuff.

Free Stuff offers free samples by mail and is organized into categories like baby samples, beauty samples, cosmetic samples, etc.

To avoid having to fill out any surveys, look at the participation requirements listed under the sample before you spend any time chasing down the offer. If you see a mention of “… can include taking surveys” or “purchasing products,” then just skip it.

3. Order straightforward samples from I Love Free Things.

I Love Free Things has been featured by Fox and ABC TV and has been called “the link between companies and consumers” — and for good reason.

What I like about ILFT’s site is that they regularly update the samples so you don’t waste time signing up for expired deals. Be sure to check the comments section, too; their community will tell you what’s really free and what’s not.

4. Get free samples and free stuff with My Free Product Samples.

My Free Product Samples connects you with fresh, free samples with no strings attached. Not all the samples are sent by mail, but the site does a good job of showing you absolutely free stuff that you can find at stores and restaurants, which we all can appreciate.

5. Ask Alexa for a free sample.

Send Me A Sample offers free samples from a variety of products, usually food and drink. In the past, they gave away goodies from brands like DripDrop, C4 Smart Energy, and Spindrift. There’s even an Alexa app to make it even easier. Just note that there are limited quantities so you’ll need to check their selection often.
