2019 Update: Over the years, Arm & Hammer used almost a dozen different websites to give away this freebies. It felt like whack-a-mole chasing them down. They were also one of the only freebies where you had to copy and paste the URL in order for it to work. You couldn't click a link! And the bugs! Oh man, the freebies were always around, but the sites were bugged out at least 40% of the time.
Sadly, I'd trade what we have now for all those bugs. Why? Because Arm & Hammer no longer offers this freebie. 😭 After over a decade, it is no more!
I'm not joking when I say this was a huge, perpetual freebie. I must have mentioned it on two dozen interviews and news articles alone. It's sad to see it finally expire, but it makes me smile thinking how many hundreds of thousands of Hiffers had clean teeth thanks to this freebie!
I mad so many jokes about this sample over the years, that some of them were actually good! I decided to compile my favorite ones below. Just because this freebie died doesn't mean our sense of humor has to as well!
Don't worry either! If this freebie comes back, I'll be the first to know 🙂
I never really understood the name of this brand. Arm & Hammer? What does a hammer have to do with getting rid of odors or cleaning your teeth? And then look at the arm a little closer. It's a left shoulder, but a right hand. Who has an arm like that?! Have you ever actually seen an arm like that? And if so, was it holding a hammer? 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.
Every time I stumble across some free Arm & Hammer toothpaste I can't help but wonder if they couldn't have picked a better logo. I understand how the A&H logo is widely known and recognized, but still, neither an arm nor a hammer are objects that I want near my teeth.
This free Arm & Hammer toothpaste campaign has been running for over a year, which means we should all have brilliant teeth by now. Is dentistry even an employable field anymore? I almost feel bad for putting them out of work, but then again, they seemed to enjoy drilling my teeth a little too much.
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.
Here's another oldie but goodie sample, though for some reason this free Arm & Hammer sensitive toothpaste link demands we copy & paste it instead of clicking it. They sure nailed the sensitive aspect down.
You may have to copy and paste the link for free Arm & Hammer truly radiant toothpaste. Because nothing quite radiates after I take a hammer to it? I like how it says we'll never go back either. Like somebody took a hammer to the door we just walked through.
