Free Samples Via Sample Showcase


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.

If link doesn’t work try:

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.

    Everybody step back and take a deep breath! It’s just a box of crappy little samples (some hard as a brick biscotti and EXPIRED instant coffee) and some coupons for useless stuff.

  • Jeanette

    Well here I am a year after your post. looking for info on what to expect in my sample box. I was wondering how long it takes to get. was it about 4 weeks?
    have you received more sample boxes or just the one.

    thanks much

  • Shannon

    @SR Tracy,

    I do not send the boxes – this blog just tells you about things that are available.

  • kristi

    I really enjoyed my little box of samples…..

  • angela vahaly

    i absolutelly love sample showcase. i also love all of the free samples, that they have given to me.

  • Monika

    I received the box but when I go to to enter my info it says they don’t recognize my address?????!!! What do I do?


    I did the address to enter to say that I did recieve the box of samples but it didnt let me in it said it showed I didnt get the box. But I did get one and was very pleased.

  • Frances

    To whom it may concern:
    I received my sample showcase box yesterday and was pretty excited to see all that was inside. They say that presentation is almost as important than the product itself, well may I just say “A job well done”. I look forward to receiving more sample showcase boxes in the future…Thanks!

  • Hi, recieved in the mail today. Thanks and these look great! Ina

  • amber

    i just got the box from sample showcase. i was very happy to see all the different prodcuts. But i would suggest that they dont send any chocolate, because it was melted when i openend the box, (and it looked very good..:(..). I am very excited to try out all the products.

  • Kim

    What a great surprise!! I loved this box of FREE samples!

  • Kim

    Did everyone that was able to get a box and / or get accepted have a promo code that they needed to enter? I’m asking because that is what it is asking for.

    • Shannon


      No when this offer was originally available there was no promo code.

  • C Spratt

    K Galli,
    Same here! I want more too! How do we get them to recognize us??? If you figure it out post again, please.

  • Jodie

    I received my box, even though I never even signed up for this program. Very cool, but when I tried to reply/register on the website it wouldn’t let me “submit”. Not sure if the website is down or what.?! cool mix of stuff though!

  • hokiegranma

    The link worked for me, but you had to have a promotion code to get in.

  • I received my box, with a paper stating “Interested in receiving more?” and went to the site to confirm, but they did not recognize me. help – I want more samples – I love this stuff

  • Rich

    I got envelope THEN this week got the box…nice stuff!

  • Jessica

    I got mine in the mail today! Way fun!

  • donald

    there was nothing in my free sample envelope

  • Ciara

    I don’t know how to apply. do you just put your email in the box?

  • CJ

    What promotional code do I enter? :0)

    • Shannon


      This is no longer valid.

  • Enter me for the sample showcase.

  • tiffany

    It says no samples available at this time for me. Thanks though!

  • Kristie

    The link opened, but it said “this is a trial program and no offers are available.” Must be too late.

  • Mandy

    FYI, I signed up as a female, kids aged 0-3, with an income of $75,001-$100,000. Good luck!

  • Linda

    Neither the link nor the cut and paste work for me, either. :(

    • Shannon

      I updated the post to say that is was no longer available around noon .

  • Stephanie

    I did too. Trying to re-submit never worked for me either. And now I hear its all done. Grr.. To qualify & then have it not let me go through. Bummer.

  • Martha

    what is your member id? it is asking for the person that referred me…
    (I just went to the main page because I would get an error when I cut and pasted the link.)

  • krystal and kaylene

    its not working for me either.

  • Heather

    Oh man, so close!! Thanks anyway.

  • Heather

    Cut and Past didnt work for me either.
    Is it gone already?? :(

    • Shannon


      yes it is as of 12:22 :)

  • kelly

    Link did not work for me – tried to follow thru & cut & paste. Any other suggestions?

    • Shannon


      Kelly looks like you missed it :(

  • Kelsey

    Yeah!!!! I’m so excited I got this

  • Lisa S.

    It worked for me and I qualified for the samples! Can’t wait!

  • Can’t get the link or the cut and paste to work.

  • Jillian

    I wasnt accepted either….bummer.

  • Toni :O)

    Woot Woot! I qualified and I can’t wait to have me some Reese’s! Thansk for the heads up MSM!

  • Lauren

    Worked for me! I was accepted and I can’t wait to get my box :-D

  • I was accepted! This is a neat program. I love getting free samples, and what could be better than a big box of different samples? :0)

  • Jennifer

    I was accepted

    Jennifer – Edited to remove why you qualified. We all want to be honest with our answers.

  • kim downham

    it says i dont qualify

  • Sarah

    It worked for me, and I was accepted. I’m looking forward to receiving the sample box! I’ve been wanting to try the Secret Clinical and who wouldn’t pass up free chocolate?!

  • Heidi

    Thanks! I was accepted. This idea seems so neat!

  • I was not accepted.

  • jklapchar

    Did anyone get an error message saying the webpage could not be found when hitting submit. If so did you just keep hitting it?

  • Nancy

    Thank you, I qualified :)

  • I qualified! Now I can just sit back and wait for my samples. thanks!

  • sherry

  • Bree

    Boo … I didn’t qualify. :o( Guess I tried to sign up too late!
