Buy samples for teeth whitening, energy bars or razors and get your money back toward the items in the box

  • Published on: June 15, 2017

Buy a box filled with samples from different companies and get a promotional credit you can use toward a limited selection of products. The boxes cover everything from men and women’s grooming products to sports nutrition. What’s in the box may vary in flavor and size but you usually get about 8-10 items to try. Then Amazon will email you about the promotional credit a week later, after you’ve had time to try some of the samples.

The boxes vary in cost, too. You can get the Crest 3D sample kit for only $5 and get a $5 promotional credit. Or get the New Year New You box for $15 and get a $15 promotional credit.

The promotional credit is not just money added to your Amazon Balance. It has to be used on a select number of products related to the box you bought. The best way to take advantage of these boxes is to find a product you already use from the selection you can spend the promotional credit on and order that box. If you buy the men’s grooming box, for example, this is the list of items you can use your credit toward. This way you’ll get to sample some other items, try out something new, but still get the stuff you love without paying more.

This looks like the sort of thing Amazon wants to keep adding to if it works out, so keep an eye on the main sample box page for more options in the future.
