Free Samples Via Sample Showcase
UPDATE: NOW NOT WORKING AGAIN !
Here is a new way from the US Post Office to get samples! You can head here to see if you qualify. They are looking for particular demographics, so not everyone will get the samples.

Some of the items in this set of samples is Reeses, Ben Gay, Grill Mates and Secret Clinical.
Here is the details of the program:
The “Sample Showcase,” to be distributed nationally on a limited basis , is a box of assorted beauty, health and snack food items from multiple consumer packaged goods companies. The boxes will be branded with the Postal Service logo and include the tagline, “A selection of free product samples.”
Another strategy behind the pilot test is making sure that direct mail is the sampling method of choice. The co-op box concept, which allows candy bars to be marketed with skin lotions, for example, is expected to make direct mail sampling more attractive because it allows multiple manufacturers to share in the marketing and postage costs of the program.
