    Try Me Free Hunt 18th Sep 12 at 7:34 PM
    Introduction by Martin

    This thread is all about products which let you try me for free. A huge amount of work goes into it by a range of volunteers, led and collated by Dormouse. Thanks to all for all the hard work. Enough from me... onto Dormouse for the real info.


    ____________________________________

    What is a try me free product?

    The products listed on this thread have short lived a Try Me Free (TMF) or Money Back Guarantee promotion, meaning you pay for the product but later receive the money back (usually as a cheque, Postal Orders or cash). Sometimes you get postage paid for as well.

    It is essential that you buy the product and send off your claim before the closing date. TMF products usually have a bright flash on the packaging, something along the lines of "Try me free" (very imaginative ). Sometimes you'll see them on the shelf with TMF-less products and you have to make sure you pick up the flashed product in order to enter.

    Read the Terms and Conditions PROPERLY!!

    Each TMF promotion has its own terms & conditions, which are always printed on the packaging (in annoyingly small print). Follow it to the letter - they are usually very strict!

    You almost always have to send them the original receipt, and very often a brief statement of what you liked/disliked about the product.

    TMFs are always (or maybe 99.999999% - anyone remember the cheese one a couple of years ago?) one per household, so you can only get money back for one product. If you've another address (parents, in-laws, friends, even work maybe) you can often legitimately buy more than one, just buy them separately and with separate receipts (and make sure no-one at the other address is a compulsive TMFer too ).

    Sometimes, companies think of completely bizarre things to ask... you might have to cut bits off the packaging, send a certain-sized bit of paper, only in black ink, whatever, follow it closely!

    How long does it take to get paid?

    You are supposed to receive your refund within 28 days usually, but this varies a tremendous amount. Anything between 4 days and 2 months is normal.


    Here is a list of all the current TMFs:
    Please report any new ones you find by clicking reply

    Most offers require a special pack; for ones that don't, let's attempt to post the address here (just click reply)

    All offers are one per household. Only 2nd class postage will be refunded, where mentioned. Remember to circle your purchase on the receipt.

    I'll keep updating this post as new offers appear.

    Happy hunting!

    I've bought a pack of Wright's Cheddar and Sun-Dried Tomato Bread Mix, which looks lovely. It has a 'Try Me Free' flash on it which just says to visit wrights.yousay.org, which doesn't seem to exist, for the T&Cs

    It also says I will need a paypal account, which may be a problem, but I can't get started on this one. Has anyone got a link that works or can cut and paste the T&Cs

    Closing date 30 April btw

    The terms and conditions are rather contradictory in that it says the promotion finishes on 30 MAY 2018 and condition 9 states the promotion is valid for TWO free samples per person per email address. Wonder which is correct.
