Why the New Amazon Sample Boxes are the Only Deal I’ve Written A New Post For

This is the first Cyber Monday Deal I’ve felt deserved its own post. While some gift card deals and travel deals sparkled, most of the “stuff” deals fizzled. Maybe I’m just more picky this year about what I’ll blog? 

Amazon Sample Boxes are an amazing deal. You get the entire purchase price back in Amazon credit!

What makes The new Amazon sample boxes post-worthy?

Some background: Amazon offered  sample boxes  over the summer and have just refreshed the stock.  Each one of the Amazon sample boxes contains at least eight samples and the prices range from $4.99-$19.99.

The new boxes include a luxury beauty box that is chock full of stocking stuffers. The luxury beauty box includes 20 (!) high end samples from brands such as Calvin Klein, Vichy, Juice Beauty and many others. You could use the individual items for stockings or the box itself is pretty enough to be a gift on its own. 

The best part: if you’re a Prime member chose one or all of seventeen boxes and get the purchase price back on a future amazon purchase. I’ve bought fifteen of the seventeen Amazon sample boxes (have received eleven) and have been happy with all of them. 

At $19.99, the luxury beauty box is a deal. At $19.99 with a $19.99 credit? Say it with me: No. Brainer.  

PSAs

Now do be aware the credits are limited to the category of the box you buy: the beauty credit is good on a beauty purchase, etc.  However the credit does NOT have to be used on the specific items you get in the box. For instance, the household box credit can be used on a list of 983 items. To see what you can buy, click on the link under the box that says  “learn more”. You’ll then be directed to a list of the items you can use the credit on. The number of items varies from 32 (men’s grooming) to 66,850 (sports nutrition).  

You also need to remember to use the credits or they will expire. Fortunately, you can check the sample boxes  page and Amazon will tell you which ones you haven’t spent yet. I went on today and found six! 

Not a prime member yet? Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trials are an easy way to get in on the swag.

    Thanks for the post. You always have practical suggestions–love it. I usually forget about the sample boxes. What’s the best way to stay updated when new sample boxes are released? Also, how long before the credit expires?
    Thanks again.

      Hi Maria…well, follow The Deal Mommy of course! Otherwise? Just keep an eye out as Amazon doesn’t really give a heads up. As for the credits, Amazon says 3 months, but a couple I had in there I’m sure were from June or July boxes so there may be a bit of flex in that. I’d use within 3 months to be safe.
