What We’re Loving: PINCHme, a Digital Sampling Platform
Thanks to the new digital sampling platform called PINCHme, consumers can try out various products for free without it hurting our pockets.
Here's how it works:
Once you register online, you will be given a questionnaire to help PINCHme send you weekly suggested products according to your "demographics."
Then every week you can order up to four product samples of your choice. They will be shipped to you for free within seven days. All you need to do is fill out a short six-question survey asking you to rate the samples.
PINCHme first launched in Australia and is expected to make its way here in the U.S. in late October. There’s quite an array of products, ranging from beauty products and of course, foods.
And though the product brand names coming to the U.S. are unknown, we can expect "comparable brands from Australia's leading CPG brands such as Unilever, P&G, General Mills, Kellogg and more" to be in the U.S., according to a representative of the company "They will be offering non-perishable foods including breakfast items such as oatmeal, granola bars, etc. and snack foods such as chips, chocolate, candy and much more."
The best part? Not all of the samples are sample-sized.
And if you love the product you sample and want more, PINCHme will directly link you to the online site where you can purchase them so you can start snacking on your new favorite finds!
