USPS Sample Showcase FREE Sample Selection

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 21, 2010 · 83 comments


The U.S. Postal service is sponsoring a new product sampling experience. Take the short 3-question questionnaire to see if you qualify for this Sample Showcase!

I was able to qualify, and it says the boxes will arrive in early May. You can read more about this program in the PCC Insider.

It must be the income that disqualified me then because I am also a femail with 0-3 children.

Yeah, must be the income then because we are lower income. I guess they want to give their free stuff to people who have better means to be repeat customers?

I am not able to get the link to work. I've tried on various websites and none are working, Is anyone else having this problem?

Reply

28 Brooke April 21, 2010 at 12:19 pm

The link isn't working for me. My computer or is the site overwhelmed?

Reply

29 Shannon @ Mommie Cheapest April 21, 2010 at 12:22 pm

I think the site is overheated.

32 Debi April 21, 2010 at 12:25 pm

Can't even get the page to come up. Get a 404

Reply

33 Debi April 21, 2010 at 12:31 pm

This is through startsampling.com Maybe you have to already be a member. I quit dealing with them years ago when I never got any of the samples they were supposed to have sent me.

Reply

34 Amy April 21, 2010 at 12:31 pm

I also got the 404 error. Hmmm... Have they filled their quota and taken the page down?

Reply

35 christa April 21, 2010 at 12:36 pm

I cant get on the site either. I am a Start Sampling member and it still wont open. I can get on the SS site, but not that link.

That is the link I found that worked for me. I was getting the error report also.
My first try I did not qualify. If this happens to you, here is what you need to do to get another chance: first exit your web browser, then go to your internet options and delete your browsing history and cookies. Open your browser back up and add this link again, you'll get another chance. You can do this a million times if you want. What qualifies you is a very high income. The more children you say you have the higher your income needs to be. Do not out anything under $75,000. Hope this helps some you :)

Gina, thanks for the updated website! I qualified with middle income, and 0-3 kids! :D

From reading the link to PPC news - it stated this program was for Charloette, NC and for Pittsburgh.
Does that mean you have to live in one of those two cities?

Reply

48 Lena April 21, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Thanks for new link. I am from Chicago and it worked for me.
Mid income, 0-3
