When your samples ship you’ll get the cost back in credits that can be used to buy a full-size product from the same brand. This is a great chance to try some new products and/or save on future purchases.

2. How do I get my credit?

3. When do I get my credit?

The credit will be automatically issued to your account as soon as your sample ships. You will receive an email confirming that the credit has been issued to your account.

4. How do I redeem my sampling credits?

You will receive an email once the credit has been applied to account. The email will link to a page with full-size products from the brand you sampled. Add one of the products to your cart, and your credit will be automatically applied during checkout. Items must be sold and shipped by
