While these freebies aren't currently available, here's their free active coupons on Kotex's site. I've also included a few jokes from over the years, plus listed what used to be available just in case it comes back!
Truth Time: For years, I've always mentally interpreted the free U by Kotex sample packs as a University. As in the University of Kotex, where they were teaching women how to use tampons or something. I don't know, I never really gave it much thought. What do you expect from a single guy in his thirties?
But it wasn't until today that I typed the title above and suddenly went “ohhhh, U as in they make products just for you, no matter who you are!” I'm a slow learner.
Or … is it subliminal messaging … “you buy Kotex” … 🤔
These free U by Kotex samples got me wondering what my mail lady must think I do. One day I'm getting seemingly normal freebies for a single guy in his twenties and the next I'm getting Parents magazine and a box of Kotex items. Sure, I could try talking to her, but I still haven't found a smooth way of saying, “oh, by the way, I don't actually use all of those tampons!”
This freebie includes the following samples:
- 1 U by Kotex CleanWear Regular Pad
- 1 U by Kotex barely there Liner
- 2 U by Kotex Click Regular Tampons
After reading everything I'll get via this free Kotex sample offer, I've come to one conclusion: I'm going to make a horrible husband. My future wife is going to need me to go buy her some feminine products one day and I promise you I'm going to mess it up. Thank goodness I'm not easily embarrassed or there would be no hope for me. I'll have an easier time trying to decipher the Rosetta Stone than I would successfully shopping for my significant other. I better hope she really likes my dimples or I'm screwed.
I don't know why but I found the free U by Kotex sample pack's confirmation message to be highly enjoyable – “the goods are on their way.” I don't know why we don't refer to freebies as “the goods” more often. Saying I was hunting for goods all day long sounds a lot better than “Oh, I spent a few hours looking for free tampons.”
Too bad there's nothing there which I can use. Unless those items with wings actually function as wings. I've always wanted to fly south for the winter!
