PINCHme - New Free Sample Program

Recommended Posts

So, my friend who has become a free sample/coupon junkie sent me to this website, and I signed up. It's called PINCHme, and it seems *similar* to Influenster. Basically, from what I've gathered so far, you sign up and you pick either 3 or 4 samples, I can't remember the number because I did it a few days ago. They send them to you, and you interact with brands, write reviews, etc.

 

https://www.pinchme.com/

 

They made it clear on the website that you can only have one account, though.

 

(eta: it was 3 samples i got to pick, I picked Lady Gaga perfume, a Keurig K-cup, and an Olay lotion, it seems like there's only 2 samples available right now so idk how it would work if you signed up for a box now).

Hopefully they'll stock back up soon! I have no idea when I'm supposed to get my box, or how frequently users can qualify. I'll posts updates as I learn! I've been doing things like following brands, updating my profile, etc, to earn points.

Yikes!  I signed up shortly after you posted this @kawaiimeows and managed to get Lady Gaga's Fame and a K-cup.  Neither are my most favorite things, but hey!  Free stuff!

 

(Of course, I immediately forgot to come back here and post about getting the box!  Thanks so much for sharing!

I've been with PINCH for about a month. They seem to stalk every 2 or so weeks. The first time I got a fashion tape sampler and a full size Rimmel Mascara. When you get your items and try them out, you're supposed to fill out a survey on their site before you can request more samples. I think I have the FAME perfume and an Olay sample on the way.

Oh, cool, good to know that they do restock.  Do you remember how long it took between ordering and receiving the samples?  (and yay on a free mascara!  That's cool!)

I'm sorry! When I said restock, I mean that they put new samples in. Once a specific sample does run out, it's gone. Hmmm...I think it took a little under 10 days for my package to arrive.

Should we keep checking the website for samples or once every few days/weeks? Or do they send an e-mail first thing when they put up new samples?

They'll send an email once they have new items in.

I just got my first sample from them. A gervalia coffee and latte pack. It took about two weeks to get it. Last week they sent me an email and I ordered three more samples. But I can't remember what they were. But the were beauty related.

Its nice to hear they email you to pick new samples often enough. The one thing I hated about Influenster is how it was a total crap shoot (though I'm usually on the better end of the crapshoot)

I got one box from Influenster but they make way more difficult than it needed to be. I don't know if this is allowed but if you got to the Atkins web site you can sign up to get their starter pack. It comes with three free bars. One meal bar, one light meal bar and a snack bar.

Oh, hey, I kept forgetting to start this thread, and now here it is!  I'm currently awaiting delivery of my third box.  In my first one, I got Greek yogurt cereal and Hemp Hearts (you can add it to things like yogurt).  In my second, I got the caramel mochaccino (or whatever flavor it was) K-cup and one of those double packets of Pantene shampoo/split end repair stuff.  Now I'm waiting for my third, and it's supposed to have Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream, Suave Skin Solutions hand cream, and Zim's Max-Freeze (it looks like a variation on Icy-Hot sorts of products).

 

A couple of notes:  Not everyone gets offered every sample, and you can only pick two or three (it seems to depend on the size of the sample and how many things they have to choose from).  They seem to base what they offer to whom on the responses to surveys you fill out when you sign up, which is probably why I got offered the skin cream, joint cream, and hand cream:  I'm over 40, and advertisers seem to think we just want face/joint/hand cream.  I forget the other things I was offered at the time, but makeup was definitely not in there.  And then you go back and fill out surveys, but they're really brief (think Birchbox) and don't require you to do a whole bunch of stuff like videos and blog posts (like Influenster).  It's definitely much more lower-key than Influenster, which makes it a much better fit for me.  There's just something that strikes me as high-pressure about Influenster.  I don't know what it is, but PinchMe just *feels* better to me.  Maybe it's just the fact that I can pick my stuff.

@meaganola that was a really helpful description! thanks! the friend who sent it to me hadn't gotten her first box yet either, so she couldn't tell me a lot about it, so i felt like i was going in a bit blind (with no risk since it's free, of course).

I got my first PinchMe box in the mail today! Not a great photo, but it included a Gevalia K-cup, a Wild Ophelia chocolate bar, and a generously sized sample of Suave Advanced Therapy lotion. I'm excited, especially about the chocolate bar! If other people could post pics, I'd love to see what other people are receiving.

I keep checking, but there haven't been any samples available since I signed up a few days ago.

I ordered my box on Nov. 26th, and have seen samples offered between then and now, but couldn't select any because you can't select samples if you have a box en route. I filled out my surveys with the quickness hoping they would let me select another box, but I'm not seeing any samples up at the moment, either. I think they send you an email when a new sample becomes available. Hopefully soon! Free chocolate and free 10-day shipping, you can't beat that with a stick! :)

I think they send out email when samples are available, so there's no real need to check back until that email goes out!

I got in the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream, Suave Skin Solutions hand cream, and Zim's Max-Freeze today. The Olay and Zim's are foils. But the Suave is a 2oz tube. Perfect to go in my purse.

    • En overflod av dimensjonering er i tillegg til bredder komplett, eksisterer likevel, og så tinkering snart finner du den store løpeskoen må gjøres. Nesten alle websider hevder at denne 20 utvider lovlig for å hjelpe målingen å ha RoadRunnerSports hinting at sportsfolk velger løpeskoen 1/2 mål på plass ved scoret fot eller så måling menn størrelse i tillegg til kan enkelt størrelse lager diagram. Involves letthet kan komme på litt av et kjøp mot forstått effektivitet på løpeskoen. En skrå kontrast er vanligvis en minivan i en dyr bil. Denne Gel-Kayano er trolig langt mer av hvilken som helst minivan: en tad gradvis, men nøyaktig, rolig i tillegg til evig. Denne fleksibiliteten i tillegg til nytelse på den dyre bilen kan gå glipp av, selv om minivansjefen får noe langt mer realistisk i tillegg til fornuftig: hvilken som helst type auto produsert for å løfte ut 200k, kan denne suvene muligens glimt elendig etter at du har nådd en 's destinasjon, selv om du kan være på dette tidspunktet der trygt og sikkert. For alle innspillingen mange gjentatte kilometer etter kilometer med fornuftig vanlig bakken, bør konvertereren ikke ha noen viktige hensyn. Litt mer sjokkreduksjon i tillegg til service beregnet for svært lang kilometer etter kilometer er vanligvis nesten ingenting for å hjelpe scoff på. Bare en anmelder hevdet at han svarte ned Gel Kayanos for smarte sko og støvler, men ville ikke avstå fra å snike et par denne 20-årene Asics fotograferer øyeblikket han / hun prøvde å bruke disse personene med. Det begynner å begynne å gjenkjenne i forbindelse med nesten alle viktige styrkehensyn mens du bruker Kayano 20, selv om den normale avtalen vanligvis er i henhold til foregående sett: det er en stabil løpesko, produsert for kilometer etter kilometer. Når jeg bare passerer 500 + kilometer etter kilometer med de to Gel-Kayanos som sannsynligvis ligner 900 eller kanskje 300, bestemte jeg seg for ikke å løpe kjører kilometer etter kilometer lenge siden. Color-wise, gir denne Gel-Kayano 20 noe for deg. Godt gjort for å hjelpe Asics ment å ha beskjedne design i sko og støvler! En rekke mennesker har en tendens til ikke å ha lyst på fluorescents, og har absolutt veiledning om temaet for vogue for eksempel: sjansen til å passe antrekk. Sammenlignet med flere joggetøysko ut Asics Onitsuka Tiger sko der, kan dette Asics ikke være trendy shopping, de kan ikke være dårlige ofte. De fleste av disse joggingsjoggene anvender en 20 årstidens arv for bare et motiv, og i noen tilfeller for den opprørende salgsprisen kan nesten alle idrettsutøvere muligens få pengene sine. Det er en high-end out-of-doors-skaffe som vil utvilsomt produsere ledelsen mer behagelig, i tillegg Air Jordan 32 norge til å redusere administrerende inntrykk. Jeg hadde gjennomgått pengene som var nødvendig for denne løpeskoen mot autentisk sannsynlig tanke i tillegg til over emosjonell hjelp akkumulert ved hjelp av en virkelig anskaffe. Å overveie langt mer entusiastisk å hjelpe trene ? Vil du være en slags flatfotet en som vanligvis opplever problemer når du mosey eller kanskje fungerer? Du vil være vedvarende bein, kalv eller kanskje returkramper, som kan være populære komplikasjoner, som støtter Asics Gel-Kayano 25 sko ved hjelp av ganske få flattfotede sportsfolk.

    • Hey! I'm 28 years old and I've NEVER been able to find makeup that works for me. Foundation is my downfall. I put it on and it somehow goes all patchy and funny coloured on my skin. I've tried mousse type, liquid and powder. I just always look ridiculous so I never wear it. (I have oily skin in parts and large pores)   Does anyone else have this problem? Any advice? Foundations to try? Am I supposed to use something under the foundation? I'm a total beginner!
