    Aw man, I logged in and tried to autofill my box but it says they’re all sold out now. πŸ™

    Thanks for the reminder Collin!!

    • Brian

      Mine was showing 3 and autofilled the box and it wouldnt add them. Now they are gone! Getting a little annoyed by PinchMe. πŸ™

      • Sandy

        I AGREE!!! Kind of a pain.

      • kerri

        Same thing 2 months in a row for me. Insane….grrrrrrr

    • Amy

      I just now did it and got the pesto, purina one and vagasil lube haha

  2. Robert

    Argh…It shows that I have 3 samples, but it won’t let me add them.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Darn! Maybe wait a moment and try again!

  3. Mel

    No samples. fingers crossed that I get an email later

  4. buckeyemom

    None this time πŸ™ Hope you all grab some great samples! πŸ™‚

  5. sarah n

    Nothing for me today….This is the first time I’ve logged in and not gotten a sample. I hope others get some goodies today. The pesto looks yummy!

  6. Jill

    once again, no samples. I’m about ready to bow out of PinchMe.

  7. Karen

    I got 3 this month. Scotchbrite, cat treat and slim fast snack. 3 is better than none

  8. Susan Crawford

    I got 3 samples. Catfood, Skinny Girl and the Barilla pesto.I didn’t use the autofill.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Great score Susan!

  9. Gabi

    Only thing I got was an Essie nail polish sample.

  10. Karen

    Zero offers today.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Bummer! πŸ™ Maybe next time!

  11. sarah n

    I’m curious…For those who did get samples today, what is your review rating? I’m wondering how much the review rating is really affecting who gets samples. I didn’t get samples today but my review rating is only 42%. Hopefully I can improve that when I review my last PinchMe box and I will start getting more samples.

    • Andrea

      Mine is 50% and I got 4 samples……

    • t

      The rating definitely affects your samples. I have 80% rating and I got early access two months in a row. I also got cover girl makeup last month.

      • Ashley

        I rarely rate and the past 2 months got early access and 4 samples today including the pesto.

        • Mel

          maybe they’re doing it randomly. i saw on Facebook a lot of people got early access today. i think the rating affects exclusive trials also. i received the neutrogena light therapy mask, neutrogena hydrating serum and olay duo trials recently and my rating is 90%. it was worth it to go the extra mile on the reviews.

    • Sarah

      I hadn’t thought of that before, but it makes sense. My feedback is 59 percent positive and there have been many months that I have not received samples.

  12. Sandy

    This sample site is really something else. Hit or miss for sure! I don’t understand how I don’t match the profile. I would think everyone would qualify for the free pesto sauce.

  13. Tiffani

    I have 2 boxes sent 11/22, never received?

    • bremoeller

      Atleast I am not the only one. I was told today shipping takes 2-4 weeks and today is exactly 4 weeks so we will se.

    • Brian

      Haven’t received mine either. Hard to give feedback if we haven’t received it.

      • Gentle

        Exactly!!! It’s so annoying. We don’t get the box therefore can’t give feedback, but no feedback prevents us from getting any more samples.

    • Kristy

      I just received mine over the weekend.

    • JA

      Didn’t get mine either. Wonder since I didn’t review that box, that’s why I got nothing this time.

  14. Daniela

    I got 5! Essie, sponge, cat food, Vagisil and Barilla coupon. Also I got an email stating I didn’t qualify for samples so I also got one year free of InStyle mag.

  15. Stephanie

    I can not wrap my head around a Burt’s Bee’s protein drink. I’m interested to hear reviews.

  16. Stephanie

    I got Scotchbrite, Olay body wash, Vagisil, and the Barilla Pesto

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sweet! Happy you could snag them!

  17. Becca C

    Really wanted to try the Barilla Pesto sauce but didn’t qualify. πŸ™

    here is my magazine code if anyone would like it

    To claim your subscription, click the REDEEM NOW button and follow the instructions.

    • pharmchick

      just so you know, you have an option to request a $5 check in place of the magazine subscription! the past few months i didn’t get samples but i got that freebie magazine offer and I’ve redeemed it for a $5 check instead because they didn’t have any magazines i wanted.

      • D

        did you ever receive the check? i never did πŸ™

      • julie

        Mine says”We love Sample Tuesday and we know PINCHers spend a lot of time trying to claim free samples. We’ve worked hard to match you with samples but unfortunately you may not be eligible for the samples currently available.

        Here is an exclusive offer for select PINCHme members. We’re giving you a magazine subscription of your choice from MagazineBonus!

        How do I redeem for the check?

    For the third month in a row I did not qualify for any Pinch Me samples. I guess they don’t feel senior citizens eat or take vitamins. I live in a Senior citizen community, and am letting other seniors know what companies don’t want senior citizens to try their products.

  20. Laura

    I got my samples early this morning! For the first time ever! For the past few months I wasn’t getting any samples! What a nice surprise!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      So happy you could snag them Laura!

  21. bremoeller

    I got samples. I still have yet to receive my samples from last time….anyone else?

    • Amy

      I have not received my samples either from last time. No samples this time. They say I have surveys yet to fill out but I have not received the items….lol. Kind of annoyed with the whole thing. I even got an email saying early access but no samples for me. It’s a great way to try new things but I feel I’m being punished for not reviewing my items I haven’t received yet!

  22. Kristen

    Keep trying friends! I logged back in and saw 3 samples. When I tried to autofill them to my cart, there were “no samples available” but I refreshed a few times and it finally worked!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sweet! Thanks for the helpful feedback Kristen!

  23. Ruth

    Got 3–vagisil, slim fast bar and Purina dog food.

  24. Angela

    Hooray! After months and months of nothing I finally got something. I got the scotchbrite, barilla pesto sauce, slimiest chips and purina one cat food. So excited.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  25. Hannah

    Yay! Thanks For the reminder. I got 3 samples. Olay, Vagisil and Barilla. Also I received my last month box earlier this week with several samples including a full size Covergirl lip gloss and a full size eyeliner too

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awesome! You’re so welcome Hannah!

  26. cindy palmer

    I started to order the free magazines, but then it wanted payment $2 per subscription? So I didn’t follow through. I did get 4 samples for the first time in awhile.

  27. Crystalsnow

    So strange, I went on and it said no samples. I checked and updated my profile and then there were samples. As I was adding in, it told me to choose 2 more then 1 more…then when I’d add it, it showed sold out…but then it started the cycle again…to add another sample…eventually I added 3 samples and got to the check out page and it sent me a confirmation. So let’s see what shows up in a few weeks.

  28. Tiff

    I was able to get three. Cat food, vagisil and a scar bandage

  29. M

    If you didn’t qualify, update profile now and check to see if you left feedback for past samples, also log out and log in again. I just got 3 samples after it said I didn’t qualify. scar bandage, greenies & pesto.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh good! Thanks for sharing!

  30. M

    Did anyone get cover girl makeup today?

    • Hannah

      I did earlier this week. There were a full size lip gloss and a full size eyeliner. πŸ˜‰

  31. hannah

    Thanks! Got 4 samples! Purina cat food, vagisil, barilla, and a scar treatment

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome Hannah!

  32. lindak

    I got the cat food, barilla and some sort of band aid. Thanks for the reminder. I just received my last box last Saturday.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

  33. Susanne

    Logged in no samples. I received the free magazine email offer and then logged in and updated my profile. After updating, I immediately had three samples available; Barillo Pesto, Purina Bella Wet Dog Food, and Mepitel Film bandages.

  34. JA

    Ugh, so I logged in on mobile and showed three samples. I loaded them but when I check out it says no samples are available for me. I quit. Better luck to everyone else!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Maybe log back in again in a bit to see if they show up for you! Other readers have had success doing that. Hope this helps!

  35. Serena

    I got samples for the first time in months. I also got the magazine offer but am not feeling the choices.

  36. Hana

    I have adhesive dressing, Barilla Pesto and Purina One cat food.

    • D

      adhesive dressing? LOL πŸ˜€

      • Daniela

        Not sure why that is funny but as someone who works in a hospital, adhesive dressing is a total thing.

  37. Deanneg2

    I just got mine from last time…. this past Friday Hth’s

  38. Cassandane

    Zero offers for 5 months. Apparently, they only want people who connect all of their social media. PINCHMe may have run its course for this H2S’er. :/

  39. Diane Z.

    Got 3 ,greenies,pesto &vagisil ! Thanks !

    • Bonnie D

      Got the 3 same samples as ^. Thank you for the reminder, I always forget.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome!

  40. Momof6

    Vagasil sample….my day is madeπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • t

      πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I declined that sample

  41. Marie

    I got an Essie nail polish! Finally something other than cat food

  42. browniesmomma

    My mag offer went into my “junk” folder… Kinda strange. They don’t really have anything good either. Also for those of you doing autofill, that usually doesn’t work in my opinion. I add every on seperately & don’t have a problem.:)

  43. Lexy

    THANKS FINALLY GOT SOMETHING after maybe 4-6 months

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome! πŸ™‚

  44. Erika

    Nothing for me and I still haven’t received my last box from them that says it was shipped 11/22!

  45. Amy

    I just got my box today that had the Covergirl “samples”. It was a full size eye liner and a full size lip gloss. Amazing for free! That’s about a $13 value. Also had the scotch dish cloth and it is nice

  46. ana

    Got covergirl lip gloss, slim fast snack, burt bees protein shake sample and olay body wash. Sorry to those who didn’t get samples.
