Sample Source Canada: New Samples Up Now! *CANADIAN FREEBIE HOT!*


Sample Source now has new samples up for grabs! Right now the site is very busy so it takes a lot of patience with loading and re loading….It took me about 30 minutes to get through the process.

Thanks to everyone who emailed me about this πŸ™‚

  35. FatB says:

    Took alot of patience, but after waiting for the site to get up and running after it went down it finally went thru (@ 11:05am MST).
    Still got all 8 samples, and I was newly registered so keep trying if you really want it. But perfectly understandable if you don’t with all the technical gliches.

  36. Sue says:

    Got message can’t connect to website

  37. Michael says:

    Weird, I tried to request, but once I press “submit” it will show I have not answer all the question, then once I went back and fill the missed question, then click “submit” again, it just bring me back to login screen. I tried 2 times and both happens the same, and I receive no e-mail of confirmation or anything.

  38. Michael says:

    Weird, it seems the site is having problem, I tried to request the sample, but once I finish all the survey and click on “submit” button, it will just bring me back to main login screen with no confirmation message or e-mail, I tried about 3 times either I got “could find the database” message or same result once I click on “submit”.

  39. sl says:

    it’s not working πŸ™

  40. greeny says:

    It took a long time to fill out the survery as it kept giving me error messages and I would have to keep logging back in, but after about 30 minutes I finally got my samples. They are really good samples !

  41. springbreeze says:

    trying to do this but it just keeps logging me out.

  42. Fiona Au says:

    It keeps saying “Could not connect to database”. Annoying!

  43. savingnontario says:

    this is so frustrating, i cannot get beyond the screen to register!

  44. it’s not working for me…. could not connect to database is what it tells me… Trying to sign up…

  45. livi says:

    the site is so busy i keep getting ‘cannot connect with database” =(

  46. Crystal says:

    Anyone else getting a livingwell brain twitch with the crashing/redirecting to the homepage 8000 times?!?!?!? Ugh…

  47. Fiona Au says:

    Anyone know if you can place more than one order for one household? We have a few people in our house.

  48. Sasha says:

    I got 8 samples, it took a bit of refreshing because of database errors, but it went through.

  49. Kim says:

    What a frustrating site to deal with. Everytime I got to login it just goes to the register page, so I cannot login. So nope, not working for me.

  50. sandra says:

    It went quickly and smoothly for me using Google Chrome. IE kept crashing.

  51. B says:

    Wont let me do anything!
    Keeps telling me that i need to register when I already have. πŸ™

  52. Teresa says:

    Page finally loaded. Submitted registration and came to survey page, partially answered survey and then it goes back to the main page. Tried to sign in and it says must enter valid email?!?! Don’t know if my registration got through in the first place. Now site is down for maintenance. So frustrated.

  53. nsnsns says:

    site was working for me this morning but not anymore!

  54. jasmynflower says:

    i used safari and got it. i had to refresh a few times but i got the confirmation email after i selected my samples. i got the option for all 8 but i said no to the sunlight since i dont have a dishwasher

  55. kyli says:

    site down

  56. Lori R says:

    I just got mine now after trying for a long time this morning.

  57. jolene says:

    It took me over 3 hours and MANY RETRIES but I finally got all 8 samples!!! and I got the email and confirmed it as it said and also checked up on the order status . I really hate how they can’t get the bugs sorted out a head of time as it really gets people upset. but then again samplesource offers fantastic samples so I have been told by others and what I have seen in my account today.Either way keep at it.

  58. Christine says:

    Very frustrating. It also keeps bringing me back to the login page. I think they are trying to fix it now as the site is down. Hopefully they get it back up before nap time is over πŸ™‚

  59. redhdlois says:

    Does anyone know if you also get coupons along with the samples??

  60. wendyjane says:

    site down for “maintenance” πŸ™

  61. k says:

    not working for me either

  62. ALEE142010 says:

    Not connecting//

  63. Abby1 says:

    Excited to hopefully get some of these samples πŸ™‚

    Site still down for me at 3:55 PM EST. Using both Safari and Google Chrome.

  64. boyzmom33 says:

    It says its down for maintenance now………..

  65. kristina says:

    “we will be right back”…..

  66. Anne says:

    Supplied my info and my opinions and then the site crashed. “We will be Right Back!” has been on my screen for the last two hours. Guess I’ll have to see if I receive any samples.

  67. jasmynflower says:

    try searching sample source instead of using that link…
    it wasnt working for me then i went just to the website and it was fine

  68. boyzmom33 says:

    I’ve tried 3 different browsers and searching it and I get the same thing…….maintenance……oh well, I’ll have t try after work and hope there’s some left…….good luck everyone!

  69. Traveller says:

    Man oh man, they are making you WORK for these samples. LOL.

  70. Sarah says:

    Can not tell you how annoying this website is. Took me sooo long to finally get in. Initially when I logged in it was showing 7 samples. Everytime I submitted my information it kept showing these random addresses on my profile. I kept updating but a different address would show up on my profile each time. Took me over 2 hours I think. In the end I ended up with 2 samples. Ughhh it was so annoying and not worth it. Wish I hadn’t wasted my time with this.

  71. Jon says:

    3:38 pm MDT We’ll be right back.. site maintenance.

  72. nisiepie says:

    it has been down all day. they must have had some issues.
    i’m sure they will be up and running when they are ready.

  73. roseofblack25 says:

    Same message for me as well…will keep trying though and hopefully get through at some point.

  74. joline says:

    4pm mtn site down for maintenance

  75. Jon says:

    4:18 pm MDT We’ll be right back.. site maintenance.

  76. Megan says:

    6:46 EST We’ll be right back.. site maintenance.

  77. Jon says:

    Sample Source site is still down – but not surprising. I’m guessing there has been a CRAZY amount of traffic – word of the samples is all over the web. I’m guessing it will be back up later tonight….I’m going to head back then.

    Can’t get too upset when someone is trying to give you free stuff!!!

  78. jennifer says:

    7:17 EST We’ll be right back.. site maintenance

  79. HappyCouponSaver78 says:

    Maintaince problem I tried it and the website is probably overwelmed….
    No use going there!

  80. lil_chikita says:

    awww the website doesnt work

  81. Momand2kidz says:

    Still down @ 8pm

  82. Crystal says:

    Just logged in and got all 8 options.

  83. SY says:

    Everything went smoothly and quickly for 8 samples!

  84. benji says:

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

  85. cora says:

    8:10 EST worked for me, got all 8 samples.

  86. Momand2kidz says:

    It’s now working and working fine!

  87. RedEng says:

    Thank you, the site is up and running. I got all 8 samples and my confirmation email came right away.

  88. Momand2kidz says:

    Got all 8 samples and so did my mom!!

  89. Regs says:

    Finally 8 samples!

  90. Amber says:

    finally got it after 4 hours trying…6 of ’em for me

  91. Pandora says:

    Finally able to get on as well. I got 8 samples

  92. Emma says:

    got all 8, thanks!

  93. Jamie says:

    The site is working now

  94. Maya says:

    Finally worked for me. I got 7 samples.

  95. Moom says:

    Just worked fine for me too, 8 samples.

  96. MD says:

    Got it thanks

  97. MD says:

    I also like that you have to check your e-mail .

  98. Sandra5 says:

    There’s only 1 sample left.

  99. kristina says:

    and it is down again….

  100. shantayl says:

    ahhhhh lets me select 7 but won’t let me submit! so frusterating, have been trying all day!

  101. Stephania says:

    Soo frustrating! After trying/refreshing for hours, finally in the middle of registration, the “We will be right back!” screen appeared. AHHHH!!!

  102. Bytown says:

    I’ve seen better and more professional web services from Nigerian scam artists.

  103. Sandra5 says:

    I’ve never seen ANY sample or coupon site run with such colossal incompetence and reports of freezups and mix-ups of wrong addresses and confirmation emails not working and rumours that the site is either up or down.

    For those of you thinking you’re going to get ANYTHING…I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    Any Bytown, you are quite correct. The Nigerian scam artists I’ve encountered have been more professional and competent!

  104. Debbie Watts says:

    Webpage not available…

  105. rachel says:

    i was just done choosing my samples and the site crashes once again. i’ve been trying since this morning!

  106. Abby5 says:

    It says it can’t run in safari??? That is all I have on iPad πŸ™

  107. Breeze says:

    I just did it and I got 13 samples….yes 13. I thought the max was 8???

  108. rachel says:

    Breeze, I got 13 too, but I didn’t receive a confirmation e-mail! What now?

  109. Breeze says:

    I haven’t received my confirmation email either…..not sure what to do about that….

  110. yil says:

    i didn’t receive a confirmation e-mail either!!! 13 samples!!!

  111. Aman says:

    All samples have been requested..what?? site’s been down for the whole day and everything is gone…too bad

  112. Jenny says:

    Just got through and it gave me 13 samples to choose from. Not sure why I got so many. Haven’t gotten the confirmation email though so I’m doubtful anything will actually come

  113. julie says:

    No confirmation email for me either.

  114. Julia says:

    I also was able to select 13 samples about 10 minutes ago (after many tries) but still have no confirmation email. hope it comes soon!

  115. san says:

    I guess those of us who missed out on the Free sample have to wait until October 4th

  116. CaraMiaxxx says:

    Allowed me to choose 13 samples but I didn’t receive the confirmation email.

  117. Anna says:

    Finally got the page to load, and it says all the samples have been requested. There will be more on October 4th.

  118. L6941 says:

    Service Unavailable
    The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.


  119. CaraMiaxxx says:

    When I hit the TRACK YOUR ORDER tab it says:

    Order Status:
    Awaiting your confirmation – please click link in your email.

    But no email ever came. Think I’m going to hit the CONTACT US button and drop them a note.

  120. Lindy says:

    All samples are gone. Next samples will come out in October.

  121. Jenny says:

    Tried to email them about not getting a confirmation email and it won’t go through. They really need to get things figured out

  122. yil says:

    I still haven’t received my confirmation email. The 1 hour window to confirm is pretty much over=( So mad! i really wanted to try the sunlight product!

    Anyone have any luck on the confirmation email??

  123. MD says:

    It came within 2 min after my order .No problem now just have to see if it comes . I think the mail is walking of with some of my stuff .

  124. JoeBlow says:

    darn, I missed this one…

  125. Amy says:

    @Abby5 I ran it through Safari on my Ipad and it worked fine. Only got 7.

  126. Gazpache says:

    ugh every time I try it it’s been down. I’ve been trying about every half hour (except the 6 I was in bed!) since 2pm yesterday. What a farce.

  127. Elizabeth says:

    I did mine last night around 9pm andget 8 samples and they send me my confirmation letter that I hat to click on it but when I click it does work and I dont know if it went thru or not

  128. Cheryl says:

    I keep trying site is always down

  129. kandise says:

    What a frustrating site to deal with. Everytime I got to login it just goes to the register page, so I cannot login. So nope, not working for me.

  130. SuzannaR says:

    I keep getting the Maintenance Page….missed it I guess..

  131. BBDVA says:

    I’ve been trying since 9:30a yesterday. At first I was able to register then it bumped me out. I kept trying and would either get bumped back to the main screen or it would indicate the site was not available. I managed to get past the survey and it bumped me out again…once again today i tried now the msg that the site is undergoing maintenance due to higher traffic appears!! Did they not think about this prior to the launch of the Spring 2012 campaign???

  132. Cassie says:

    Samples all gone? Just now I breezed thru the questionnaire, got 7 samples and confirmation e-mail immediately. Let’s see…

  133. heather says:

    first try site was down…..5 minutes later was working…just got all 8 samples πŸ™‚

  134. Sandra says:


  135. Nikki says:

    A confirmation email has been sent to your inbox (please also check your junk folder).

    You must click this email to confirm your order within 1 hour. If you do not, your order will be erased

    Note: due to high number of requests, it may take up to 20 minutes for your confirmation email to arrive!

  136. Nikki says:

    I got the confirmation email, but i click on it and it says “we’ll be right back…”

  137. BBDVA says:

    I FINALLY got thru with my order…I managed to get 7, I believe it depends on how you answer the survey questions, that determines how many samples yo are able to choose from. Good luck everyone, my sister just tried, got as far as completing the survey and the site went down…again.

  138. Trish says:

    I haven’t been able to get anything all day yesterday or today. The website error message comes up… doing site maintenance, will be back soon.

  139. Mini says:

    Mine said we will email the confirmation…but I never received it.
    I think it’s great they give away samples but find it frustrating to think ‘yay I got em’ only for their website to fail and not get the email. I think that instead of the positive association they want with the brands, when the website fails and people get frustrated it hurts the brands.

    (its been 12 hours and still no email)
    oh well…

  140. Sandra McNiel says:

    I find it funny how angry people get over a freebie site not working. I know it is frustrating when something doesn’t work…but we should be more thankful that they are even offering free samples…..

  141. operabob says:

    Remove the end of the URL until all you have is:

    Then refresh.

    Worked for me.

  142. nanner says:

    I really hope i can get this freebie .seems like a great website!! hope it comes back online soon!!!

  143. Kary says:

    dang! tried yesterday and said server was down. tried again right now and server is down again!

  144. rdmisc says:

    Bogus Bogus Bogus
    – 2 days now “Sorry Site is Down For Maintenance” We’ll Be right Back.

  145. Stacey says:

    everytime i check, it says “we’ll be right back”….

  146. Stephanie says:

    It’s working again! Just did it … was fast and no errors. I was offered 8 samples.

  147. jayne_a says:

    I tried for 2 days to get some samples. when the site finally came up, said they were all out πŸ™

  148. Sara says:

    SOLD OUT!! I think I managed to get my orders though!
    The site was VERY slow, but I managed to get 8 samples

  149. Aman says:

    Tried few minutes ago got 6 samples πŸ™‚

  150. andreawtbay says:

    worked for me. got 8 samples, and site was fast. got my confirmation email right away.

  151. nisiepie says:

    my order went through after trying to register multiple times.

    today it says that my account does not exist.

    i am sure that the companies who were being represented through this promotion wouldn’t like to be associated with such a badlyrun business.

    yes i get it, they were free, but still it was a promotion that was advertised and hyped and the company wanted people to enroll. if they were just going to waste time and drop orders then why bother with the whole thing.

    perhaps next time these companies will choose someone more reputable to run their promos.

  152. yay! says:

    got all 8 samples! Something different to try than P&G. Yay!

  153. nisiepie says:

    well, i emailed them because my order disappeared, and then instead of the 8 samples i was offered before, i was reduced to 2 samples.

    they didn’t like that i emailed them so they canceled my order.

    i told them i didn’t want to cancel, and that i was emailing them to express my disappointment.

    they emailed me to notify my that they are canceling my order and unsubscribing me from their website.

    control freaks? lol

  154. Sandra says:

    They are still giving away samples for those that are still interested.

  155. roseofblack25 says:

    I just did it and got through. I got a lot of samples listed but a lot were out of stock so I picked the 7 that weren’t out of stock so hopefully it comes before I move!!

  156. frugal_gal says:

    Like many others I received an email a couple days ago letting me know new samples were now available. So I visited the site and completed the registration, answered the short ‘survey’, checked the samples I wished to get (out of 8 choices) and when I confirmed my order nothing happened/the site went down…essentially I figured I’d lost my chance. I haven’t been able to get back on until just now though it took 4 tries to be able to log in; each time the site would direct me to the registration form when logging in until at last I was able to log in. I was sent to the ‘survey’ again though this one was only 1 question long and I had the choice of only 2 samples. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad I’ll get the 2 samples (assuming they do get mailed out) but am somewhat disappointed with how this whole promo thing worked out.

  157. king says:

    same here 2 samples after originally getting 8, but i won’t complain, i thought about it though, πŸ™‚

  158. gooniesguy says:

    Well.. it’s back up today. I was offered 8 .. but 2 were now out of stock.. scrubbing bubbles and a self tanner. So 6 were still available for those interested. I really wanted to try the scrubbing bubbles, but I’m just happy the site is back up. Good luck to all.

  159. linguistar says:

    I just ordered 6 of the 8 items πŸ™‚ Thanks Smart Canucks!

  161. Denise L says:

    Well I patiently waited for the site to be back up and this morning I got 8 samples πŸ™‚ yay! and I had no troubles whatsoever

  162. Rhonda says:

    I was able to register & get 2 of the 6 samples…better than nothing I suppose. (toothbrush & dishwasher tablets)When you are answering questions, answer all that apply or might apply, as this will likely give you a better chance of being eligible for more items.

    Good luck!

  163. Honest couponer says:

    @Nisiepie. I’ve also sent a letter to these guys, and I used to work at another couponing site reading ans responding to emails. If you had your order cancelled you must have been very abusive and beligerent in your email. No company intends to upset or deter consumers – its bad for thier business – however they also (rightfully so) wont accept abuse toward their employees.

    Perhaps I am wrong in your case….but I know from my history in this field both as a consumer and as a former professional that abusive language is the only reason that I’ve ever seen a company cut ties with a user. It’s ok to express your disatisfaction, but we as consumers need to stay civilized.

  164. angelamary says:

    I am not impressed with this sample and their site. It never fully finished, even though I was able to register and suspiciously is always down. And then magically within a few hours of registering, my email account was hacked, managed to boot hacker out. I am very skeptical about this one and hope that those people who successfully registered and got the confirmation email don’t have the same issues and actually get their samples – and make sure your passwords aren’t even close to email and their site. Good luck. I will not be participating with this offer set next time around.

  165. BILLIE says:

    I think they are just having traffic problems – they sent me an email about it and some other posters here. They said the traffic was too much to handle even though they planned for 10x capacity! I participated in their offer in the fall and it was amazing, and it came (I was skeptical too). So many free products that i actually use. I posted in the original thread back in October with the pics back when \i got it in November. And websaver is associated with them from what i can tell and websaver is reputable.

  166. PBMAMA says:

    The site is back up after the long weekend, logged in today and got 7 of the 8 samples, the jergens self tanner is out of stock.

  167. Kahlya says:

    I got 13 samples πŸ™‚

  168. R says:

    Tried to order yesterday, most samples were gone. Sent an email to CSR letting them know that most samples were gone…..received a rude response..WOW

  169. navneet says:

    this worked for me i got all samples

  170. Debbie says:

    My samples arrived yesterday. Thank you so much!! πŸ™‚

  171. Lisa says:

    “This webpage is not available “

  172. awesome just did my order for spring 2014 cant wait to receive!!!!!!

  173. Darlene says:

    I received a bunch of samples in the mail today. I got a lot of amazing stuff!!! thanks sample!!!

  174. Anit says:

    I got mine as well a couple days ago! It’s like winning a prize!

  175. This information is invaluable. When can I find
    out more?
