Free Playtex Samples & Coupons

While we wait for the next free Playtex sample opportunity, here are their free coupons! And below you'll find some of our old Playtex jokes 🙂


This free Playtex Gentle Glide from Walmart should be just what I need to put the finishing touches on my homemade hang glider. I've been slowly building it ever since my first failed launching 15 years ago. I thought my childlike sense of wonder and imagination would be all I needed to soar off my roof. Gravity disagreed.


Here's a fun game for all of you bored at work. Head to Walmart's free Playtex Gentle Glide offer page and then quickly move your mouse back and forth over the two boxes of tampons. Hey, they're dancing! Look at them go! *cues up Salsa music in his head*

Yeah, I'm bored.

Okay, fine, I'm really bored.


Walmart has a new free Playtex Sport tampons offer up, but I'm not going anywhere near it. Why? Because of the ninja / witch in the ad! First she's kickboxing and then in a split second she's changed into an evening dress and is dancing? Believe you me, there's some type of sorcery going on here!


Free Carfax Report

Free Carfax Report

If you're in the market for a free Carfax Report, then be sure to check out their helpful guide on obtaining one.

Normally a Carfax usually costs $39.99, so this is great if you're buying a car. I used my free report to look up my old truck and was told that the odometer had potentially been tampered. Yeah, it's my fault the makers only put five digits on the display so that after 99,999 it simply rolled over. As soon as the first 100,000 were put on it, I raced around the country to secretly put on another 100,000 without anybody being any the wiser!

You know, I probably shouldn't be telling this to tens of thousands of people. I'd make a horrible evil scientist.


Free Zyrtec Sample & Coupons

Walmart is giving away some free Zyrtec samples and coupons, which is just in time for spring blossom! … Wait, isn't this a few month's too late? Do people get bad allergies during the fall and winter? I rarely leave my protective apartment cocoon, so I don't know much about the outside realm.

The “Get Special Savings” button will take you to a page where you can print $2 and $4 coupon. To get the sample, click on “Zyrtex 10mg Tablets.” There are quite a few states that don't love their residents and want them to suffer from allergies year round, however. They include: Arizona, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.


Store Coupon Policies

Corporate Internet Coupon Policies

Over the past months, a trickle has turned into a torrent of e-mails from people telling me that X store doesn't take printed coupons and Y store does but only if you use less than five and Z store has no limit and… you get the point. The thing is, in this example, Walmart was X, Y, and Z store!

So, I set out to see if there was a universal corporate coupon policy for any of the big name stores. I compiled the list below and began emailing corporate offices asking if they accept Internet coupons. Long story short: yes, most have an official policy and in the majority of stores, printed Internet coupons are okay.

But as I've hinted to, everybody seems to have a horror story of a cashier who refuses to accept the coupons and suddenly the total bill balloons. Nine times out of ten, that cashier is in the wrong and this is where a little education, planning, and hopefully this post will come in handy. If you shop regularly at any of the stores below, you might want to print out the policy and carry it around in your purse when you go shopping next!

There's no reason for anybody to be denied savings when they're rightfully entitled to them, especially in this economy!

A&P – Holy Mother of…A&P simply did not want to respond to my e-mails at all. But after a mere trillion messages by me, I received an e-mail with the following statement:

The internet is a powerful vehicle for getting information out to people and at the same time it is also a vehicle for false information. Unfortunately, internet coupons are not accepted in our A&P stores due to an abundance of fraudulent coupons circulating over the internet.

I know this is not the answer you and your readers want to hear at this time, but we are listening to you and other customers who are seeking alternate means of stretching their food dollars. Currently, we are working on a solution that would allow our customer's to download coupons from the internet directly to our loyalty cards electronically. We are exploring this idea and hope to put it into fruition in the near future. I apologize for the delay in my response, as I wanted to wait until we had more information of the new clipless electronic coupon service we will be offering. We are working with an external vendor and hope to have this service available starting August 7, 2009. [ed: so…it's released now?]

So that's kind of promising as it sounds like they'll be rolling out their own Cellfire version within a month in the past.

Free Diplomatic History Videos

Free Diplomatic History Videos

The U.S. State Department and Government Archives is giving away free Diplomatic History videos and that sound you just heard was me screaming in excitement. Folks, I'm a history and international relations nerd, there's just no way to hide it. I'm on vacation and what am I reading for pleasure? The Guns of August, a 550 page tome about the events leading up to and the first month of World War I. You know, just a little light reading about death and destruction.

In fact, it's the type of books I read to my siblings for bedtime stories. I'm starting to understand why they have so many nightmares now…


Free Breast Self-Exam Shower Card

This free breast self-exam shower card is a good idea, both for reminding women to frequently check themselves for breast cancer and for also showing them how to properly do so. I just wish there was something similar for people like me who frequently forget how to shower in the first place. I jump in, freak out because of the cold water, and then end up squirting shampoo in my eyes.

This is easily a daily occurrence for me!


Free Love Fragrance

Free Perfume, Cologne, & Fragrance Samples

As you can see below, we've found a lot of free fragrance, perfume, and cologne samples over the years. The good news is they're still very frequently released, as of 2020!

While we wait for the next one, here are some classic jokes from the archives.


Oh man, I can't wait to get this free Love2Love fragrance and then smell my lover's philtrum!


I get that gardens are supposed to be associated with pleasant smells, but this free Gucci Flora Garden fragrance on Facebook reminds me of three things I hate: sneezing, bees, and sneezing bees. Those last ones are the worst. They lure you in with their cuteness and then BAM!


Here's a free Chanel LE BLANC four-piece sample kit. As if by magic! Quick, somebody get it to pull a quarter out from behind my ear. I need some cash for a bagel in the morning.


I never understand traditional advertising. The Facebook page for free Nine West Love Fury fragrance shows the perfume and … a shoe? I get that the bottle stopper kind of looks like a high heel, but is that implying the scent smells like feet? Because I can produce that fragrance all on my own, thank you very much.


I have to admit, I always wanted to look like James Bond. I thought it’d be cool to have as many gadgets as Bond or be as sexy as Bond. I even wanted to be as strong as Bond. But I can’t say I ever once wanted to smell like him. If I wanted to be around the aroma of gin and gunpowder, I would have visited my crazy Uncle Eddy more often. But to each his own!I have to admit, I always wanted to look like James Bond. I thought it’d be cool to have as many gadgets as Bond or be as sexy as Bond. I even wanted to be as strong as Bond. But I can’t say I ever once wanted to smell like him. If I wanted to be around the aroma of gin and gunpowder, I would have visited my crazy Uncle Eddy more often. But to each his own!


Finally, I'll own a single carat! 23 more of these freebies and I'll finally be able to afford a nice engagement ring for Future Mrs. Goob.


Head to Facebook for a free Viktor&Rolf fragrance sample. We get to choose between Flowerbomb Dew or Flowerbomb Classic.

Ah yes. Classic … flower bombs? Are these from some crazy cool Secret Garden that I've never heard of? To heck with a green thumb, I want the camo thumb with access to explosive plants.


Oooooh, look at this fancy free North Bondi Parfum. You know it's high class when the language morphs from English to French. As a matter of fact, I now want to be known as Ryan Goob $*@&. It'll be annoying saying “pardon my French” every time I'm introduced, but swear words are the only French I know.


I've got no idea how this stuff smells. It could truthfully smell like fish scales and then again, it might smell like mountain spring time or fresh lilies or some other brand of Lysol. But if you have the guts to get it and wear it around for a while, sign up for this free Boudreau perfume & cologne.


There are three different free Hugo Boss fragrances to choose from today. There's the one that smells good, the one that smells great, and the one that is a mixture of dog farts and rotten eggs. Good luck guessing which is which!


I hope this free Hugo Boss fragrance comes in a tiny vial because they always make me feel like a giant scientist. I once took that fantasy a bit too far and mixed all of my colognes together in an attempt to create a magic potion. Turns out the only magical property it had was repelling women.


I knew the Swiss made knives, chocolates, and banks that don't ask too many questions, but I had no idea they also produced free Victorinox Swiss Unlimited men's fragrance. Imagine if they'd found a way to combine all those into this freebie. It shaves your beard when you spray it on, tastes like chocolate, and the bottle can be deposited into your bank account once empty.

Scientists, get on it.


Everybody knows Swiss Army best for their watches and knives, but did you know they make perfume too? It's obvious why, as nothing is more threatening than a fragrant, punctual solider. So if you enjoy trying new scents, request a free sample card of either Victoria Eau de or Forest Eau de toilette sprays.*

*Now with 50% less toilet sprays!


This free Selena Gomez fragrance got me wondering – how famous do you have to be in order to get your own perfume? Because after looking Ms. Gomez up (I'm rather happy to admit I didn't know who she was), I think it's time to shore up my references and credentials. I mean, who wouldn't want to smell like a work-from-home blogger who desperately needs to clean his desk and do a few loads of laundry?


As a resident of New York City, I can promise that you wouldn't want to come within a mile of this free DKNY fragrance if it truly smelled like NYC. I understand people enjoy different aromas, but I've yet to meet anybody who loves the scent of hot garbage and what I really, really hope is dog poop.


This free Joy by Dior fragrance has a lot of fancy buzzwords in its description. Vibrant smile of flowers. Smooth caress of woods. A fragrance facetted with a thousand nuances.

Let me try a crack at it.

This spray thingy smells good.

Ahhh, much better!


Am I the only one who feels fancy whenever asked for my salutation? The only time I come across that word is when requesting freebies like this free Gucci Guilty fragrance and watching Downton Abbey.


I have no idea who David or what a Yurman is, but we're all welcome to ask for a free David Yurman fragrance sample. I'm guessing it smells like yogurt from Yemen.


You get to choose between the Code and the Sport Code when signing up for your free Giorgio Armani Beauty fragrance. What's the difference? Um… One has the word Sport in the name and the other doesn't.


The only prerequisite for free Burberry Brit Rhythm fragrance is joining “The Guest List,” so I'm assuming this sample is our key to all the cool parties in town. Only problem I can foresee is we won't know where the parties are exactly located. That's why I plan on spraying this freebie in the face of every bouncer I see until one of them shows me the way.


I found this free Folle de Joie fragrance offer while gaming with my friends this afternoon. I stared calling it “Folly de Jolly” and now it's been 5 hours of us saying that nonstop.

I love my job.


You can get free Armani Code cologne. You know what they say though – loose lips sink ships. So don't sign up for this unless you can keep the Code under wraps. Otherwise HIF's enemies will … know we smell good? On second thought, I guess that's not such a bad thing.


As a frequent sufferer of writer's block and someone who's constantly searching for his muse, I can speak with authority when I say filling a room with free Estee Lauder Modern Muse perfumewill make people pass out before it inspires them. Unless it inspires them to run away from you. If that's your goal, then job well done!


On Why I Don’t Post All Freebies

Recently I've gotten an increase in the number of emails that more or less say “Hey, why didn't you post X?” and thus I thought I'd take a moment to address this.

The freebie isn't free. There's shipping. Or a minimum purchase. Or an “identification check” via your credit card. Or any number of other strings that are attached to freebies which make them not worth our while. This doesn't mean I won't post something that isn't 100% free, but it is the first bar that an offer generally has to cross in order for me to even consider it on the site.

The freebie stinks. Seriously, who wants a DVD for vacationing in Montana just because it's free? Anybody even remotely interested in that would have already Googled for it instead of waiting for a freebie site to post it.

Free Holistic Pet Food

Coupon: $5 Eukanuba Dog Food

Is there a more simultaneous cute and disgusting moment than what's pictured above? Every time my dogs surprise me like that, I react with “awww …. ewwwww.” I've seen what they sniff when we go on walks. I know too much.

Oh yeah, right, back to the freebie I just found, in the form of a free $5 Eukanuba dog food coupon. I always do a double take when I see this brand name since it's so close to my own last name, Eubanks.

You'd think I'd learn to stop going, “wait, there's a dog food named after me?”

You'd be wrong.

I just mentioned to my dog that she's about to get free dog food, but I don't think she was all that excited. Come to think of it, she's always gotten free dog food since I've been paying all these years! Fingers crossed she has a stash of cash hidden under her crate or else I'm out quite a bit of money.


Free Sports Magazines

I'm not much of an outdoors type: the sun's too bright, all that fresh air is stifling, and who in the world thought it was a good idea to let bugs just roam free in the wild?! That said, there are some decent new magazines available for anybody who enjoys exercise and social contact.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to hop in my giant bubble and get back to becoming the palest human ever.


free always infinity sample

Free Always Infinity Pads

The free Always Infinity Pads were given away 9 times from 2006-2012, with the bulk of activity coming during 08-09. Aside from popping up once in 2015, I haven't seen these in recent years. As always, if that changes, this will be the first place I update! Until then, here's their free coupons and offers page.


Walmart gave away some of these free Always Infinity pads a few months back, but this is a new link so it should allow you to sign up for a second freebie. I've sat here for ten minutes trying to think of something witty, but I can't focus since my dogs have been barking the entire time. Either they feel threatened by the rustling trees outside or this is the first stage in the inevitable coup d'état I know they're planning.


These free Always Infinity samples from Walmart don't actually always last for infinity, do they? If so, that's a pretty poor business model. I can only imagine the corporate meeting a year from now when the head of sales is explaining to his bosses that they've already sold a product to every consumer in America. He'll probably have a chart behind him with a comically giant red arrow pointing straight down and they'll all think they're doomed.

Then I'll come in and point out that their brand name doesn't have to be taken literally. I'll then grab the chart, flip it around so that the arrow is pointing straight up, and the boardroom will cheer.

The moral of this story is I've always wanted to flip a chart around like they do in the cartoons.


Yeah, yeah, free Always Infinity pads, now let's get to the heart of the matter because I have so many questions from the image above.

  1. How does a pad win a Product of the Year award? Somebody call Putin, I've seen a rigged election before.
  2. Which innovations were added to the pads? Bluetooth?
  3. What products did it beat out?
  4. Who voted for pads?!

I must know.


I almost missed it. I came this close to hitting Publish before casually glancing once last time at the free Always Discreet pads page. That's when it jumped out at me. I have no Earthly idea what I'll find on the other side let alone why it exists, but it's an absolute certainty that I'll call the toll-free “NEED LIVE HELP?!” number on their site. I need live help explaining why they provide live help!


I spent five minutes trying to click the bubbles on this free Always Clean pads site before I realized you couldn't interact with them. This is a prime example of why I never try to trick my cat with a flashlight or laser pointer. It's almost a certainty that she'd figure out a way to flip the tables on me and have me running around the house chasing her ball of yarn.


Coupon: Free KFC Meal

Not to be outdone by Chick-fil-A, Oprah is giving away a coupon good for two free pieces of KFC chicken, two individual sides, and a biscuit! Plus, the terms say you're limited to four prints of the coupon. Talk about an amazing offer – toss in a water and you've got yourself four free meals.

You have until 9:59pm CDT 5/6/09 to print the coupon. You can then redeem it at any participating KFC location from 5/5/09 to 5/19/09, excluding Mother's Day.

Now come on, who was planning on taking their mom to KFC for her Mother's Day meal?

Update: As many people have commented, KFC is no longer accepting these coupons. They are instead issuing rain-checks.
