It’s that time again, to log into Sample Showcase and see if you qualify for the new boxes they are mailing out!
It’s FREE to join if you aren’t a member and the FAQ’s are listed below.
One of my favorite things about sample/trial sizes is the ease of packing for trips – they make it SOOOO easy!
Why do companies offer free samples?
Companies, large and small, provide StartSampling with the product samples we make available to you. Why? Because they believe they have great products and that if people have a chance to try them, they will start to buy them.
Many of these companies are also very interested in reaching and gaining the feedback from specific groups of consumers. So they “target” samples accordingly in the hopes of getting the information they think is most valuable for their brand needs. For instance, a company may select a group of consumers based on prior sampling feedback, or based on the information provided by a set of questions.
Who pays for this?
The companies that own the brands pay for their products to be sampled by people both within Sample Showcase™ and in other ways as well. In other words, they spend a portion of their “marketing dollars” to deliver their product samples to you. These fees pay for the postage, the labor to fill the boxes, the boxes themselves, rent on the facility where his all comes together, shipping, the costs of having this website, and all the other business services required to make all this happen.
Sample Showcase™ is a registered trademark of the United States Postal Service licensed by StartSampling to offer samples to you in Sample Showcase™ packaging. The United States Postal Service does not specifically endorse any of the product samples contained within Sample Showcase™. All materials included in Sample Showcase™ are free to the public and produced without the use of either tax or postal revenue. StartSampling is responsible for this website and for helping to attract brands to participate.
Are there any costs related to my participation in Sample Showcase™?
Sample Showcase™ is ABSOLUTELY FREE to the people that request it or have it delivered to their homes! All you need is the willingness to Try Something New™ and then you can enjoy a Sample Showcase™ experience.
Why can I not get EVERYTHING that might be offered?
Companies that participate may choose to reach certain types of people, so quite often we will “target” our Sample Showcase™ boxes accordingly. This “targeting” sometimes involves making the boxes available only to certain geographies or other qualifying criteria. Unfortunately, when people attempt to get a box by changing their answers or trying to overcome this targeting in some manner, the eventual outcome is that brands will simply choose alternative ways to offer people a chance to try their products.
How can I get a box?
All you need to do is sign up and become a member of this Sample Showcase™ site. When boxes are available, we will contact you (if you allow us to) as well as placing the box offer on the website. When the time comes to order a box, it will always only be available on a first come, first served basis until the volume of Sample Showcase™ boxes are gone. There are no guarantees you will receive any particular Sample Showcase™ box.
Why does the mysampleshowcase.com site exist?
This Sample Showcase™ site is a membership site that allows people to sign up for a Sample Showcase™ program and be offered the chance to request a Sample Showcase™ box. It also offers a destination for people interested in trying new things to provide feedback about products they have tried, participate in surveys, answer polls, update their account if they move, etc. Over time, more functions will be added, and we hope you will find many reasons to return to the site, including our unique Sample Center.
Why is there a Sample Center here and how does that work?
The Sample Center associated with this Sample Showcase™ website is a service of StartSampling. Employees monitor the web to seek out the best sample offers we can find, as well as other opportunities we think members might like. While we cannot guarantee the validity of all the offers we place within the Sample Center, we hope to provide a variety of worthwhile offers for you to explore. When you visit the site, even if there is not a Sample Showcase™ box available, there will be a selection of offers for you to take a look at and decide if you’re interested.
