For today’s edition of Dion’s Daily Deals, I want to show everyone how a new sample subscription service, called Pinch Me works.  Think of it as Birchbox, or like those other subscription services where you get sample-sized products in the mail…except this one is FREE!

How it works, is manufacturers want feedback about their products, so they offer up different samples every 2 weeks.  Companies that participate include big ones, like the makers of Herbal Essences, Rimmel cosmetics, Special K Bars, Gevalia K-Cups and more. 

In exchange for sending you the sample,  you’ll have 30 days to answer a mini survey of six questions.  When that’s complete, you’ll have the option to choose what goes in your next sample box.

Consumers also get an opportunity to buy the full-sized product on the Pinch Me website. 

The company started in Australia, and believe it or not, 2-percent of the population subscribes to the free service, which equals about 8 million people! 

Have fun, and read all directions on how the service works.  Already we’ve had a few people in the newsroom sign up at www.pinchme.com

Have fun and see you on TV! 
Dion
