You can can an email to the company directly and ask for some coupons. I just look up the company website, go to contact us and send an email with my address asking for a coupon. I let them know I enjoy using their products, or would love to try their products. Good luck!

Which companies have you asked that sent you coupons or samples?

... and review a few products you already own. Taking great pictures really help too. Once you have establish an amount of reviews you can contact companies yourself by visiting their website. Eventually companies will contact you themselves if they find your reviews and blog to be what they are looking for or if you are a good fit for their campaign.

Sephora! on Nov 02, 2014 @ 01:39 am

Sephora is my favourite for makeup samples. It's best to purchase some products first, then at check out I always ask what samples they are offering. Every store is different. Some sales reps might ask if you want to try a sample after you've checked out their aisles. Or you can ask for a sample that interests you. It's worth it to be part of their rewards program, to be a Beauty Insider for starters. As you purchase more, your rewards status increases too. You get more bonuses and invites to try new products. If you go on-line you can get certain codes for different products plus points for being on-line too. They offer 3 samples when you check out on-line. Another bonus is the birthday gift that they give you when you show your card. Right now, I'm a VIB member and it gives me a 10% discount card for the next purchase and a complimentary 45 minute makeover! It can be a little overwhelming or intimidating at Sephora at first because there are so many products to choose from. Check it out.

If you blog, and have your own blog... You'll be able to sign up for specific sites (such as ChickAdvisor) to get free products.

I don't have a lot of experience with this, as I don't usually go out of my way to try and find ways to get free stuff (maybe I should!), but I just sign up for programs that do these types of offers.

For example, outside of ChickAdvisor you have:
BrandBacker -
BzzAgent -
Blog Meets Brand -
Home Tester Club -
Influenster -
Social Nature -

Most, if not all of these, require you to be active in your blog and on their sites. But it's worth it!

I've been accepted into a couple items with BrandBacker so far, and one with BzzAgent.

Some sites allow you to apply for blogger samples. If you're interested in Japanese Candy, check out :)

Also, when in stores, simply ASK! If you are at a counter, ASK for a sample. It sounds so obvious, but it works.

I also find when I google "Free Canadian Samples" a few sites come up, with lots of samples!

After you sign up for Chick Advisor you can either go through the reviews already listed for products, or type in the search box a product you've had recently that you can type up a review on. That's how I started, by searching a bunch of shampoos and such and putting in my review. Followed by going through the food category and looking for products that I've used and could leave feedback on. It's pretty simple to get started. One thing I recommend though if you end up creating a new item to review, make sure to put in a picture of the product.
