We came across Proctor & Gamble’s new initiative Reward Me and wanted to see if getting free samples was as easy as it was made out to be.

So we visited the website and filled up the registration form that asks for your address, contact details and some other basic information (household size, whether you own a TV, two-wheeler etc.). Not too detailed so it doesn’t get boring. We were done in less than 5 minutes.

After a quick SMS verification, you can access the samples section of the website which is currently quite sparse. Reward Me requires you to order at least 3 samples to make an order. We ordered the following three products from a list of six:

Pantene Hair Fall Control Conditioner (75ml)
Price: Rs. 59

Head & Shoulders Anti-Dandruff Conditioner (90ml)
Price: Rs. 69

Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Day Cream (SPF 15) (8gm)
Price: Rs. 149

So that’s a total of Rs. 277 worth of products. We placed our order on the 5th of December and were notified that we would receive our samples in 3 weeks. We received it in 10 days. We thought we wouldn’t be allowed to order again very soon, but we logged in and found that we still could! Awesome.

We are also quite pleased with the fact that P&G hasn’t sent us tiny samples, except for the Olay day cream which happens to be the most expensive product in the bunch.
