Should you trade, sell or donate unwanted sample freebies?

YOUR BEST DEFENSE IS TO BE INFORMED   Freebies means you don’t have to pay to try a product that you might not have otherwise bought but what happens when you don’t want the freebie? Do you sell it, trade it or give it away? Today I have a mailbag CBB Fan question that came in that I thought I would address based on my opinion and nothing more. As much as I love getting fan mail one thing I don’t do is give advice on what you should and shouldn’t do. I leave those decisions up to you because in the end the only person who is held responsible for actions taken, is yourself. If you don’t know the answer to a pressing question your best bet is to contact a professional or service that can provide you with the answers you are looking for.   Dear Mr.CBB There has been so much controversy online and on mommy groups about parents who sell freebies that they get from freebie sites online such as free clothes, free formula samples etc. that it’s becoming difficult to know what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s not something I’ve done personally but it has […]

grocery game monthly challenge

The grocery game challenge July 29-Aug 4, 2013 #5: Food samples

Free Food In Grocery Stores Food samples are a great way for manufacturers to let you try a new food product or improved product right at the source. Getting free food doesn’t just stop at the grocery store because marketers use any way they can to reach out to the public. Many companies will also offer you free product coupons (FPC) just as we used the last week to get the New Honey Nut Cheerios Hearty Oat Crunch which they marketed through a popular Canadian couponing website. If you like to get free things then you should keep your ears and eyes open because there’s always something up for grabs. You’ve heard never go to the grocery store hungry because you are likely to spend more than your grocery budget allows. I can tell you from personal experience that yes that is correct. I like to think I have self-control but even at the best of times I get caught off-guard when I see a spectacular deal that I just can’t pass up. Food samples If you get cranky and your stomach is rumbling have no fear where there are free food sample displays there is free food and kids […]

Why Canadians Love FREE Product Samples?

EVERYONE LOVES SOMETHING FOR FREE   Do you love Free Product Samples like I do? I’m sure all of us have bought a product and were disappointed by it at some point in our lives whether it was a beauty, cleaning, or food product.  Sometimes, I feel kind of “cheated” when I buy a full-size product for the first time, only to throw it away shortly afterwards. That’s why it’s always a good idea to “try before you buy”. If you are frugal like we are and use coupons you’re better off letting your coupons expire before you use them on full product especially if you haven’t had a chance to use the product before. We like to try and find samples first and we don’t see samples we’ve been successful in the past asking the customer service associate if they have any samples of the product to test. Not all products in-store will have free product samples you can test especially if it’s a taste test or something you need to add to your laundry but if it’s lotions, perfumes or food you might just get lucky. How many of you run to the free sample booth at the […]
