If you’re here, you’re probably a product junkie like I am!
Thanks to my blog, I’ve gotten a handful of stuff sent to me to try out, and I am so grateful for each and every opportunity these companies have given me <3 I think blogging is a great way to make side income. I actually know a bunch of ladies who are blogging and are now making way more than their full time jobs! I definitely think blogging is one of the cheapest startups to an online business.
Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry!
Here are some ways to get FREE stuff sent to you to try, even if you don’t have a blog or a YouTube channel, or if you’re still growing your following on social media.
One of the first review networks I’ve signed up for, and they offer some of the best freebies. The best part, you don’t necessarily have to have a blog/youtube/huge social media following.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t been on the website in awhile, but if I remember correctly, in order to get freebies, you need to get on their network and review products that you’ve tried and share things on your social media, and you build your “Impact”. The higher your Impact, the better your chances to get chosen to do specific campaigns.
Sometimes they have campaigns with specific brands and their new products, I think they also send out boxes with a bunch of goodies called “VoxBoxes” which feature a whole lot of new up and coming products from their partners.
The more you review products, fill out surveys, etc, the better your chances of getting free stuff! I’ve gotten full sized items and some sample sized items.

Another network similar to Influenster.
Hang out on their website, leave reviews, gain better chances to get free stuff!
The send you surveys every now and then when a new project comes up, to see if you’re fit for the campaign.

I haven’t used this personally, but I’ve seen people on IG get free stuff from this network. It seems really similar to Influenster and Chickadvisor.

One of my faves! I’m not sure about the American version, but the Canadian version sends me samples about 3-4 times a year.
Sometimes they’re sample sized, sometimes I get coupons for the full size product in store!
What happens is this: They send you a survey when there’s a new sample box to be sent out. Based on your answers, they offer you a bunch of samples you can choose if to receive. A cute box comes in the mail full of goodies from different brands!
Not all of the products are beauty products. I’ve gotten pet food, nasal strips, even some pain medication samples lol! But it’s really fun and I love getting these boxes.

That’s it! Happy free sampling 🙂
I’m sure there are a lot more networks and websites that work with brands to spread the word about them, these are just the few that I know of and/or have used myself.
Make sure to keep an eye on your email inboxes so that you fill out the surveys they send to you as soon as possible!
