SoPost has established itself as one of the best online interfaces to nab a free sample of perfume and makeup products.
Who is SoPost?
The best way to describe SoPost is an 'invisible sampling partner' for all sorts of brands. Brands like using a third-party partner like SoPost because they handle all the heavy work of processing the applications and sending out the samples while maintaining the brands own look and feel.

How to get free samples from sopost?
The best way to get free samples from SoPost is to keep an eye on our home page because as soon as we find one, we post it on the site. SoPost freebies rarely last more than a day or two and in some cases just hours or even minutes because they are such a trusted brand for giving away free samples and they make the process really quick and easy.
Sometimes the SoPost free samples will only appear as a sponsored post on social media so it's well worth liking the SoPost Facebook page and keep an eye on your feed for free samples sponsored posts.
The fact that they work on behalf of some of the best brands in the world including the likes of Philosophy, YvesSaintLaurent, L'Oreal Paris, bear, Estee Lauder, Cadbury also helps to drive volume traffic to their free sample offers.
What's in it for SoPost?
Brands pay SoPost to handle all the aspects of running sampling campaigns and they also engage in marketing on behalf of the brands they work for. Brands are more than happy to work with SoPost because they see a good return on investment in the form of new customers once consumers have tried a free sample.
57% of consumers opt-in to further marketing when they apply for a free sample from a particular brand, which means they will be the very first to hear about further free samples from that brand via email, as and when they are available.
According to some stats on the SoPost website, they say that 69% of consumers who receive a free sample are likely or very likely to go on to purchase the product they were lucky enough to try.
SoPost has gathered over 1.8m reviews and survey responses from over 7 million opt-in consumers. Consumer feedback and responses they collect is invaluable marketing intelligence for the brands that work for them.
Who sends out the free samples?
SoPost takes care of not only the storage of the free samples but also dispatch them from hubs in the U.S. and UK. Companies/brands send all their samples and inserts to them and they take care of the rest.
How long does it take free samples to arrive?
It can take around three weeks from the point of application to the free sample landing through your letterbox. That's pretty good going compared to when brands themselves take on the challenge of processing free sample requests and then dispatching them.
Mugler Alien Goddess eau de Parfum from SoPost
We recently managed to apply for a free sample of Mugler Alien Goddess eau de parfum. They gave away 5,000 1.2ml samples and all were snapped up in record time as they normally do with SoPost freebies.
We are delighted to say that we managed to get our free sample in on time and we received a notification from SoPost saying that our order was approved and will be delivered in the next few weeks.
This time, SoPost did things a little bit differently in the free sample request process. Applicants were asked to enter their email address and then they were sent an email with a four digit code that needed to be entered on the SoPost website to complete the application.
Everyone that managed to go through that process would have been sent an email to say their order was received and will be shipped soon.
