What is PINCHme?
PINCHme is a system that operates monthly through subscription such as Ipsy, BoxyChram, and many others out there. What makes this sample box an exception to the previously mentioned ones is that it is completely FREE.
Well, PINCHme is a box that carries sample products from some of the most popular brands. Products on this monthly box vary from cosmetics, food, health, household, pets, children, and even coupons for other products. Subscription for it is completely free, and the monthly boxes are free. For skeptics who may think this is “too good to be true”, there is a “BUT”:
Unfortunately, PINCHme is a subscription box that is only available in the U.S.. After you sign up and create an account on PINCHme, you answer a questionnaire about your likes, habits, the things and brands you buy, etc. Once you’ve completed the questionnaire, your profile is all set up! Each month new products will arrive and your answers to the questionnaire will determine your eligibility for products that month.
What this basically means is that if your answers to the questionnaire do not meet the needs of the brand products, there will be no products available for you to choose from and “fill up” a PINCHme box that given month.
Yet, if in the case that you are eligible to fill up you box that month, the box will arrive to your given address in 4-6 weeks. PINCHme does request for you to go on the website and give your honest review about the products you receive. If for some reason you are unable to fill up the reviews of the products from your previous PINCHme box (which is simply typing short, 150 characters or more, review about your experience with the product) you will not be eligible to receive new PinchMe boxes until you complete the reviews.
That really is the basic overview about what PINCHme is and how it works.
Yes. If you go to the PINCHme Facebook page, you can RSVP to get priority on the upcoming box that month. This month’s “Sample Tuesday” as they like to call it, is this Tuesday the 14th at 12 p.m. eastern time.
My Experience with PINCHme:
From my experience, the only disadvantage would be that a monthly box is not guaranteed. I created my PINCHme account about 9 months ago and have received 6 PINCHme boxes since then. My 7th box is on its way! Overall, I think PINCHme is a very good option if you’re interested in subscription boxes and are willing to try and review products without having your wallet be affected.
