If you don't mind going on a little link hunt, you can get a free NeilMed Sinus Rinse bottle kit OR Neti Pot. Simply click through to where it requests your name and pick “p1886b” from the dropdown list. After that, you'll be presented with 17 “slides,” which you don't have to read and can quickly skip through. You'll then be presented with a signup form and finally, a “quiz” where you have to get 18 out of 20 questions correct.
The quiz scores you in real time and shows your wrong answers though! You can click randomly until you get the correct answer or use the answers I listed below. 😁 All in all, it should only take a few minutes.
For years, this freebie took 6-8 weeks for delivery. I'm not sure if covid will interfere with that here, but don't be crazy surprised if this shows up in mid-June! This is for a large-sized product though, so the wait is worth it in my book. Especially if you suffer from allergies, sinus clogs, or colds!
Sometimes these freebies come with packets of Sinus Rinse, which is a sinus rinsing something that does something for congested noses. If that ringing endorsement didn't encourage you to sign up, how about this humdinger of a fact. “Some research shows that hypertonic (2.7%) or more concentrated solution may help reduce sinus congestion better than isotonic (0.9%) solution.” I have no idea what that means, but it sounds technical and therefor impressive. I'm easily persuaded by science.
Does anybody else get the impression that this company was formed solely because the owner liked sticking weird things up his nose? No, just me? Okay, carry on.
