EDIT: This OG freebie from 2006 has returned!
This stuff always reminds me of my dad. When I was a kid, he used nothing but Arm & Hammer toothpaste and I would always sneak into the bathroom to use it since my bathroom was always stocked with pink bubble-gum or all-natural toothpaste. So as I was signing up for my free Arm & Hammer toothpaste, I couldn’t help but think of my dad and swiping his toothpaste.
I never really understood the name of this brand though. Arm & Hammer? How is a hammer involved with getting rid of mouth odors or cleaning your teeth? Plus look at the arm a little closer. It’s a left shoulder with a right hand. Who has an arm like that?! And even if you did, would you use it to hammer? Heck, when you get down to brass tax, neither an arm nor a hammer are objects I want anywhere near my teeth! See, these are the things I spend my time thinking about while other people just see a link to some free Arm & Hammer toothpaste, sign up for the stuff, and then go about their day.
Finally, over the years, Arm & Hammer has used almost a dozen different websites to give away freebies. It starts to feel like whack-a-mole chasing them down, so I’m going to use this post to catalogue all the old domains they’ve used. Chances are none of them are currently working, and even when they did, you had to copy & paste them in order to access the site. I have no idea why Arm & hammer set it up like that, but they did. It makes about as much sense as using an actual arm and hammer to clean your teeth.
