Trying new products can be fun, however sometimes your budget doesn’t leave you much room to do so. Or trying out a new product and discovering it is a dud, leaving you regretting that you wasted your hard-earned money on buying it. Sampling and product trials allow you to try a products for free, usually in exchange for your honest feedback, and sometimes sharing on social media.
Social Soup – requires a download of the app to your phone to join and participate in product campaigns. Campaigns also generally require you to share photos to social media.
Home Tester Club – sign up as a member to the site, register your interest in testing products when they are available and then share your review on the site.
Bunch – you’ll need to be a member of Woolworths Rewards to participate. Register with Bunch, and when free samples are available, select a sample. The sample will be loaded to your Woolworths Rewards card. You then head in-store to grab the product, and scan your rewards card at the register in-store to redeem it for free. After trying the product, share your review on Bunch.
Flybuys – occasionally you will receive offers of free products. Sign up to Flybuys, and then wait for a email to be sent regarding a free sample being available. Click on the link in the email to activate the offer, and it will be loaded onto your Flybuys card. You then scan your Flybuys card at the register in-store at Coles to receive the product for free. Samples are not all that regular, but free is free, right?
Taste Tester – sign up as a member of the site and opt into sampling in your profile. Emails will be sent to you when samples are available to register your interest.
Mouths of Mums – join up as a member, apply for product trials as they become available, and then leave your review. I’ve seen trials for everything from groceries to holiday resorts!
Black Box – receive a free box of full-sized products for you to try, and then fill out a product review survey after testing the products. Currently only available to NSW, ACT and VIC residents.
Free Samples Australia – if you want to receive free samples but not bother with testing or reviewing the product, then you can check out the samples listed on this website to try.
Word of warning – there are some dodgy and fake companies and sites out there. You should never pay to sign up! These are all the current companies and sites I use personally.
In addition to the above sites, I also occasionally receive free products to trial plus an incentive payment (anywhere from $10 to $50) in exchange for my opinion and feedback through online surveys and market research companies. You can find all the companies I use in this post here.
