Who doesn’t love free samples? You get to try a product before you buy. And even if you have tried and bought the product you’re testing, it always feels good to get something for free.

Would you want to receive free products on a regular basis? Many companies offer free samples to try out. For some of these companies, you might have to leave reviews in order to receive more products. For others, you simply receive products just by signing up.

Not all companies are legitimate, though. Some want you to purchase something before you receive any samples. They may require that you sign up and enter a bunch of personal information. Which companies are legit – the ones you should do business with – and which ones should be avoided? Read on to discover a dozen different companies you should contact so you can start product testing.

Free products are great, but they're not guaranteed. If you still want to try the products, head over to our coupon pages for Amazon, Walmart, Target, Nike, and 6PM first so you can save on your purchases and get alerts on sales and promotions.
