If free is one of your favorite prices, you’ve come to the right place! We all like to get something for nothing – and, even better if all you have to do is sit and wait for it to arrive at your door. The following is a guide to the sites offering free samples by mail – and how you can get hold of them.
An internet favorite, Cashbackbase is a cash back site offering up to 100% discount on a wide range of products. From the latest tech to just released cosmetics, users can browse hundreds of cashback deals with discounts from 10% to 100%.
After filling in a brief registration form and verifying their identity, users can browse for deals on the Cashbackbase site. Once a deal is chosen, the user then purchases the product from Amazon in the normal way. Once the purchase process is complete, members then submit their order to Cashbackbase in order to have the discount amount refunded to their Cashbackbase account. Refunds can be drawn from users’ accounts either into a bank account or into their Paypal account.
Retailmenot is a UK based cashback site offering discounts on a large number of high street brands including Argos, BooHoo, Sports Direct and more.
