    Had an email back from WKD today, some woman saying she had a few things that would be good, and she'd send them onto me. Who else is good for freebies? I tried Blavod, but no reply, and i haven't had a reply from Guiness either, or Cadburys.

    Wrote to the jemma Kidd make-up school, just requested a few samples, was told

    "sorry we dont do samples, but i will send you some promotional stuff"

    Didnt expect much....................however the postie dropped off a parcel this morning containing

    4 lip glosses
    4 eyesahow sticks
    1 lip n cheek tint
    1 sparkle shimmer gel & dust

    priced them up on

    NEARLY £80 worth of cosmetics............just for asking!!

    I emailed this company to say i was interested in purchasing a lot of their products, but was wondering if they had any samples to try first. No reply! :o
  • I emailed Innocent Drinks last year and told them that I thought it was unfair that they had decided to charge for their festival which is normally free. They sent me £6 Innocent drink vouchers. The thing is, I would never normally buy Innocent drinks because they are expensive, but used the vouchers to buy their small carton drinks for my son. He loves them and have been buying them ever since! So I got £6 off them, but in return they've got my regular custom.

    Wrote to Cobra beer, they sent me 2 bottle openers, really cool ones.

    Wrote to WKD blue, saying i wanted some stuff for a home bar, the lady i spoke to via email sent me a drip mat, a bottle opener and a massive ice bucket with WKD written on it! Well pleased, didnt even have to pay postage.

    Also, sent an email praising walkers crisps, they sent me 3 quid in vouchers, sent one to Sacla, they sent me a voucher for a free jar, sent email to Heinz, they sent me a 3 quid voucher! Im enjoying all this blagging!

    I wrote Molton Brown a lovely e-mail requesting trial sample and or fragrance cards and this morning I received three, 30ml trial size bottles of body cream, bath/shower wash and liduid hand wash. I have found that the nicer the letter the better response you get. hth
