I’m pretty much obsessed with Amazon. I order gifts, stuff for the house, furniture, beauty products, and even groceries. But that’s all stuff that I pay for.
I also get lots of cool stuff for free too. No, not with credits that I earned from blogging. Just for free. And you can too! No blog required!
Sounds Too Good To Be True.
It’s not. Well it’s really awesome, but it is true! To the people who sell on Amazon, positive reviews are golden. So to help them receive more feedback, Amazon sellers will give out codes for free products in exchange for your honest opinions. You get to try out new products and in exchange you give them your thoughts. Easy and fun!
Is it really free?
It can be. I say can because sometimes some people will offer coupon codes to make the products super cheap. Other times they offer codes for it to be 100% free.
One thing to keep in mind is shipping. Some sellers will ship it to you for free and others want you to pay for it. If you have Amazon Prime chances are even if the sellers don’t pay for free shipping, your Prime will cover it. (Need a free trial to Amazon Prime? Get 30 days for free when you sign up here!)
Awesome. How do I get started?
Getting started is super easy. There are several free websites that you can sign up for that will allow you to sign up to get free codes for products on Amazon. Here are some that I use and 100% recommend. But before I share, I’m sure you are wondering what kind of things I’ve gotten! I’ve had essential oil diffusers, a motion activated emergency light (it’s actually much cooler than it sounds – we love it!), beauty products, even a screen for our door. I’ve gotten so many things, but what makes it cool is that you get to pick and choose which products you will actually use (or be able to use as a gift!)
Let me know if you sign up and what kind of products you get devlievered to your door – for FREE!
This is a great one! You can request up to 20 items at a time. You won’t be approved for everything you request so it is nice to be able to request a higher number of items. If you don’t hear back in a few days, move on to request new products. I like to sort through by best discount or lowest price (aka free).
This is another great site. There are two lists that you can sort through, free products and $1 products. You request the items you would like and you are emailed a coupon code. This one is awesome but it is hit or miss. Sometimes you get some pretty decent stuff and otherwise not so much. The good news is that it is updated ALL the time. Just about every time I login there are different items available.
This is a popular one that many people use. Actually this is where I got that really cool light from! :) Today I checked in and didn’t see anything I was interested in, but check in often. You can find good stuff!
With this service they give you ‘tickets’ that you can turn in for different products. Once you choose your item, receive it and leave a review you just turn in your link and you earn more tickets. They usually have pretty good items. Today I was able to score a pack of jerky treats for our dogs. I’m usually pretty picky about what treats I buy them, but these looked like they will be a great choice. As you can see above, the treats usually sell for about $15 and after their coupon code, I didn’t pay a thing for them!
Keep an eye on this one! I’ve gotten several great items including an essential oil diffuser that I use all the time! They post their items daily (usually a bit later in the day).
A Few Tips…
- Amazon is not a fan of people who just join groups and buy free products only. Weird, I know. So make sure that you are leaving reviews for items that you actually purchase regularly as well. This will give you a nice balance. How do they know? Because they can see you entered the promotional code and because….
- Legally you have to disclose you received the item for free or for a discounted rate. An FTC thing. I know.
- Write good reviews. They don’t have to be 1,000 words, but leave a good review. I’m not saying if an item is garbage you lie. I mean quality counts. People vote for helpful reviews on Amazon all the time. If your reviews are voted helpful regularly you can expect sellers to start contacting you offering their products to you to review. And generally, you can contact sellers as well and offer to review. THAT is how you get the really good stuff!
