Thanks to them I also discovered we can now get free samples more seamlessly when using Alexa, finally this small little box of nonsense gets useful. You can also try Google Assistant if you don’t own Alexa.
I love the fact that technology such as personal assistants now or apps can save me a few ££ now and then.
I used Google Assistant to get my free whisky sample, I was away from home yet curious how it works so I followed the steps given to me by Send Me a Sample UK.
Free stuff with voice assistants
You don’t need to google free stuff offers anymore, you also don’t need to fill in the long forms to receive free samples. The voice request takes care of receiving the freebies in the most seamless and quick way possible.
How do you enable Send Me a Sample on Alexa or Google Assistant?
- Find the Send Me a Sample voice skill on the Amazon Alexa and click ‘enable’. On Google Assistant, simply say “Hey Google, Ask send me a sample for whiskey ginger”
- Create a Send Me a Sample account (so they know where to send the free sample to!–> you only need to do it once) you need to be over 18 to get alcohol samples 🙂
- Return to your voice assistant and say “Hey Google, Ask send me a sample for a whisky ginger” or “Alexa send me a sample for whisky ginger’.
Now you are set up to receive freebies using 1 sentence 🙂
How long do free samples take to arrive?
Free samples are available to UK and US customers and arrive in around 2 weeks. But if you happen to live in Germany they send samples released for that market too.
Can voice assistant send me a sample offers as soon as they become available?
Ok so you ask how quickly will you be notified about the samples and if you can do anything to be ‘ahead of the notification’?
In the past Send Me a Sample sent the following samples:
- Free Whisky Ginger by Johnnie Walker ( UK & DE)
- Free Bacardi (in DE only)
- Free Zendium toothpaste sample (10,000 samples)
- Free Lidl Lupilu newborn nappies sample (1,240 samples)
- Free Dunkin’ Shot in the Dark coffee (UK & DE)
- Free Issey Miyake perfume sample (UK & DE)
- Free Regenerate toothpaste (UK & DE)
- Jean-Paul Gaultier perfume sample
How can I ensure I get a free sample?
There is a certain amount of free samples available but there are clever ways to ensure you get them as soon as possible:
- You can keep coming back to Send Me a Sample site but why would you want to do that when you can
- Join Telegram group of Latest Free Stuff to get notification of all the freebies they promote but as they run on a first-come, first-served basis maybe better
- Set up Google Alert for ‘send me a sample’ or ‘send me sample free’ as that way you should be informed
Can I get free samples if I don’t have a smart speaker?
Simply download the Google Assistant app on your phone. Once you’ve got the app, just say: “Hey Google, Send Me a Sample”. That will secure you a free sample.
Why do companies give away free samples?
It is a positive association to get a product for free especially if you like the item. That means that you may come back to using this brand once you have tried your freebie. Furthermore, you may spread the word to your family and friends so ultimately ‘word of mouth’ marketing plays a role here too and that is the cheapest marketing strategy out of all available to raising and established brands.
