Like most people, I like a chance to try out new products before I commit to buy. So when I came across an app called Sampleyes, I was very eager to try it out.
According to their Facebook page 'Sampleyes is the revolutionary new slick app that gets you free products
from the world's leading brands and delivers them directly to your door
The app is available to download for free for iPhone, iPad and Android Phones & Tablets.
So I downloaded the app to my tablet and following the instructions, filled in my personal details and perused the samples on offer. There is a wide range to choose from including perfumes, recipe booklets, skin care products, pet food samples, tea, sim cards and many other goodies.
Once you've picked the item of your desire from the app, you simply tap on it, which takes you to a page with a button which says 'Send me this sample'. Tap it, and hey presto, your sample is winging it's way to your door.
Sampleyes also run draws regularly. This months is for a make up hamper. Again it is simply a matter of tapping the prize draw icon, clicking the 'Send me the sample' button and you are entered.
There is also a scan mode within the app, which allows you to claim samples wherever you see the Sampleyes logo. For example on advertising posters, online or in magazines.
I've often sent for free samples before, but have found it very hit and miss. Often the products never turn up, which is very disappointing.
So I tapped on some items and crossed my fingers. A few weeks later my samples began to arrive, as you can see.
Overall I recommend this app. It's easy to use and the samples arrive within a reasonable time frame.
