Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons FREE Sample

by Tara Kuczykowski on May 13, 2010 · 7 comments


Get a FREE sample of Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons from Walmart. Choose from ultra or regular absorbency.

I like to tuck these free samples into the glovebox in our car in case of an emergency. Hopefully my husband never gets pulled over -- can you imagine the look on the cop's face when hubby reaches in for our registration and a bunch of tampons come spilling out?

I have 3 teenager daughters, so we can use as many of these free tampons as possible!

Thank you! I give all the free "girl product" samples to the school nurse at the high school. When young ladies stop by to see her when they've been caught off-guard by their monthly visitor, she usually has to charge them 50 cents for a product. This way she has a few to give out for free. It makes me feel good to know I'm helping out a girl in need! We've all been there~

Love your newsletter. Not crazy about Playtex. I was unable to request a sample because apparently I'm "too old." Ordinarily I'm a really easygoing person but this irritated me. I wrote to Playtex to complain:

Hello -

I attempted to request a free sample of Playtex Gentle Glide tampons for my daughter through Deal Seeking Mom. I completed the online form which asked for my date of birth. I submitted the form and a page came up saying something to the effect of "Sorry, this form is available only to customers aged 13-55."

This is outrageous. Why are you discriminating against people outside your predetermined demographic? That's called ageism, and it's morally wrong. I don't know, but it might even be illegal. However, I'm not going there.

Why would you ask for whom I'm requesting the sample if you don't contemplate that I might be inquiring on behalf of a younger relative? And your field for date of birth goes back way farther than 1953, the year I was born. How do you know I don't still have periods? Is it your intent to deny women "of a certain age" the benefit of trying your product? That's called bad business.

Maybe I need to discourage everyone I know from using your products, based on my own newfound prejudice as a result of your policy. That wouldn't be nice, would it? I'm not saying I would do it, but I hope you get my point.

Thank you for letting me vent at least.

michele, you'll have to let me know the response you get!! im curious. i always write to companies when i have a bad experience and it seems like they do care and try to make the situation right. maybe you will get a whole box instead of just one little sample. good luck!! :-) heather
