Sampler Back to School Event (begins 7/20/15) – Freebies and Grand Prize

samplerbacktoschoolevent

Sampler has a new event coming up for Back to School.  I have posted about these freebies and events before but figured I would write up a post to let you know how these events work.  This event works just like any other Sampler event.  It takes place on facebook and is ran by Sampler with participating brands.  The event lasts about a week and each day you will be able to have a chance to get a sampler and even enter into flash giveaways.

RSVP for the Grand Prize

You can RSVP right now.  The sampling event doesn’t begin until July 20, 2015 though.  You are not required to RSVP to participate in the sampling events however, if you RSVP you are entered in the Grand Prize drawing at the end of the event.  You can also RSVP at any time during the event.  Also if you RSVP, you will be able to access the calendar of events so you know what goes live each day and what time they go live each day.  Each event is clickable and will take you directly to the sampler event to send a freebie or to the flash giveaway event so you can enter.  Below is the Grand Prize.  You can RSVP HERE.

The Sampling events for freebies

This isn’t your typical “just fill in a form to request” kind of thing.  With these freebies, you have to team up with a friend.  Each one opens up on a certain day and time and works as a first come first serve.  Once they go live, you will see a “send” button.  You will send the freebie to a friend and it will create a link on their facebook wall.  They will then need to click the link to fill in their info and claim their freebie.  If you want one, you will need to ask a friend to send one to you.  They do tend to go rather quickly because there are limited quantities.  TIP:  Stay on the page and keep refreshing at the time it’s supposed to begin and try to be as quick as you can.

Flash Giveaways

If you enter any of the flash giveaways, you will just follow the directions on the giveaway post.  Normally it’s really simple by just leaving a comment.  Then a winner or winners will randomly be selected by the page hosting the giveaway.  These are called flash giveaways because they are not open for very long.  Normally the window to enter is only about 3 hours.

You can participate in all of the events or just a few, it’s up to you.  It doesn’t increase your chances at winning the Grand Prize.  All these events are hosted on each brand facebook page.  A “like” is not required to participate but I would suggest at least liking Sampler on facebook so you can keep up with the goings on of these events.  For the sampling/freebies, only one sample from each of the brands per household.

I will try to post each freebie/sampler event separately before each of them go live with the direct link.  Below is the calendar of events but the calendar in this post is not clickable.  If you want to see what samples will be given away ahead of time, you will need to RSVP on the Sampler facebook page and check it out there.
