I was hanging around on Cafemom -- a place strictly for moms, expecting moms, etc; no men allowed social site --when a user had a list of tips for getting freebies. Most of the tips were the same ones I mentioned myself, but there was one that stood out to me. I find samples and share them from Sams Club and Costco from time to time, but generally, these require a membership number. After a period of time if the samples are still available they would be open to those without a number. So I would wait and hope they had those left over and go about requesting that way. Of course usually, the good things would never come available to non-members so that sucked. Now, no more losing out! Here`s how you get those samples when a membership number is required (these steps work on BOTH sites):
- When you get to the page fill out your info as usual
- When you get to the part where a membership number is required, You need to choose ANY 9-digit number (for Sams Club) or a 12-digit number (for Costco)--BUT it has to START with a 2. (ex: 2312873956 would work for Sams --same concept for Costco, whatever number you make up off the top of your head will work -- I have tried and done this!)
- Get your sample!
