PINCHme is a service which sends out samples to willing recipients (you have to join) on the premise that if you try the products and like them, that you will buy them.  At first, I was reticent to try the services.  As a National Product Reviewer, a real sample (as opposed to a PR sample) is a small thing from which you are supposed to try and then report your thoughts about the product.  It is fact, an insult to receive itty bitty smatterings of a product to try and then report on.

I've been doing product reviews for over a year now and we normally ignore a company who actually sends these to us, in hopes of a glowing article.

However, PINCHme is different.  I received my first package last week and it was fun to get!  Just have a scan at what I got.

There were so many products, some of which were full size, that we enjoyed receiving it.  You may select from a list which is posted every Tuesday, by a certain time, 1 of every 3 items posted.  We like it.  We like the concept and we suggest it for everyone who enjoys getting something in the mail that doesn't start with, "You owe us..."
