Sample surprise with free-shipping order

Friend Melissa shared that she recently ordered air fresheners online at because she couldn’t find the ones she wanted in stores.

First, because her order totaled more than $45, she got free shipping.

But equally exciting, when the order arrived, she found a bag of free samples tucked inside. Melissa said there was a facial wipe, a hair spray, a couple shampoos, a conditioner, lotion, body spray, a hair product for men, a refresh spray and foundation.

Since it was her first time ordering from, she’s not sure if this was a fluke, a one-time bonus or an every-time thing. I couldn’t find anything on the site that says you get freebies with an order.

Has anyone else ordered from and gotten similar goodies? Let us know by commenting below or sending me an e-mail to

I do know that if you do a search for “samples” on the Walmart site, you’ll usually find a few things you can get for free. This week’s offerings included Beneful Baked Delights dog snacks and RevitaLens contact cleaner.
