Yes and if they are offering free samples I'll take more.
When costco or sams club is giving out free samples of bacon do you take one or say i've had bacon before.
Well to be honest.. I go to Costco often and sometimes I do take a sample of something that I really would like more of. But I would to too embarrassed to look like a cheap freeloading mooch to grovel for more free stuff. So I generally take a look at the product and the price, and if I like it I buy it. Sometimes I even open the bag and eat it while I'm walking around, and then scan the half empty bag. You may not be aware of this, but there is a concept at work here. The supplier gives you a free sample in the hopes that you will like the product and BUY more of it. I think that you are confused into thinking the sample programs are to give you an ongoing free supply of product. And you may be even more astounded to learn that the suppliers have to pay for the samples. They are not free to them. I think it all comes down to something called integrity.

Hooked me with "Free Samples" as the the thread title. o_O

I've heard of it, but never tried it. Somehow I missed out on the free samples. :(

Does it dry hard or does it stay wet?

My father used to hock his wares at trade shows. Everyone had free samples but him. He charged a dollar for his .When people scoffed at him he said. "When you open your goody bag up tonight and throw all those other samples in the junk drawer, you are gonna pay extra attention to the one you had to pay for;
Or you were to cheap to spend a dollar so my costly samples aren't part of your junk drawer and I save the $3 it cost me to give you one. If you like the product you'll pay for it."

I like that thinking, but not sure it would work. Did it?

He made a good living, died at 60.
His main product was sold to factories Toyota, Honda etc, and I think he wanted it to do better hence the show circuit for the public. It was before the internet, shark tank etc. I do remember black limos in the driveway with guys offering to buy the NA rights. In the end he sold his business to his best friend. Money still supports my mom at 87.

I just want to thank Fluid Film and whomever is responsible for sending me the free stickers I requested a couple weeks back. Received them yesterday and I’m very happy to have them. Even though I’m no longer landscaping or plowing, I still use FF quite often. Great product that has protected lots of my equipment over the years. Thanks much!!
