Overall Satisfaction with Sampler

Sampler has lots of opportunities to test products. Products range from kitchen food and snacks, personal hygiene products, baby products, and so on. It's easy to apply to try a product, but more popular products tend to fill quickly. Before receiving a product, you'll usually take a survey. Most surveys are pretty quick and easy. After the item is sent, you're asked to write reviews, but you don't have to if you do not want to. Sometimes the actual item is shipped, but other times, you're mailed a coupon or voucher to allow you to buy the item to review. In my experience, for a single thing, I'll get two coupons. The first will be a simple "free item," and the second will be a buy-one-get-one coupon. The idea is that you use the free coupon to obtain the item for review. If you like the item, you can go back and get more or even buy them for a friend to try.

The market for sample-type websites is very fluid. There are many companies that pop up one day, then all of a sudden disappear. Sampler has been around for multiple years and has kept the same business model. They're not perfect, but their longevity and their relaxed nature with reviews are why many like them. Whereas other sample and review outlets require customers to write reviews or have items that many customers simply do not want.

If you're looking for new snack foods or personal hygiene items, Sampler is excellent. You're given the opportunity to try products you've seen but questioned and thus did not spend money on, or you're exposed to products that you simply didn't know about or have frequently overlooked. It's worth a quick look just to see what they have in the least.
