  1. New Years Tons of Free Samples


    Just curious what happened to the tons of free samples from you guys? I was expecting something from the new years sale considering it was in your mass email ad. Seems i never get anything anymore when i order.


  2. I only get samples when I remember to ask for them in the comments

  3. last year I got a nutraplanet shaker cup and a AX beanie with some free samples of a bunch of other supps. I am stilkl waiting for this years order to come in.

    How big was your order? They prolly dont include a ton of samples with small orders

  4. We try to include samples whenever we can; during the New Years sale we have a masssive amount of orders and still a limited amount of samples so it isn't physically possible to give samples out to everyone unfortunately.

    Well i got quite a few samples from last years sale. My order wasn't exactly small but it wasnt a credit card maxing order either.

  6. my order before x mas had heaps but i do order alot of supps lol

  7. alot of it has to do with if you asked for free samples. On my New Years order I did not, and didnt receive any. However, when I do ask, I am always pleased with the amount I receive

  8. I didn't get any with my NY order or the follow-up protein order, but I've got 7 new tubs of stuff to scoop from! My wife's not thrilled about taking up all the the cabinet space!

    Hmmm....no freebies for me either, oh well....got two packages today, lots of good stuff and I love those sexy black series containers. Christmas in January lol....

    Hah, I know the feeling! I used to have all my stuff out on the counter before we bought our house. I heard about it everyday. Now I have my own cabinet(s) and an entire pantry wall, teehee! Supplement experimentation is almost as much fun as working out for me :P

    My order was delayed thanks to Dymatize, so I don't have much hope for samples.

  11. it's funny I take the same grief about taking up too much space.

  12. The simple guide is: If you wish to have some product samples, indicate this in the comment section of your order. If NutraPlanet has any samples at the time of processing your order, you would certainly get some. They are known to be generous in this regard. If you do not ask for samples, chances are high that you would not get any. No one wants to get "spammed" with samples they do not want!

    Asking has never once worked for me but no big deal, I will be happy if my new years day order ever gets shipped

  15. Thanks for the heads up on asking for freebies.

    There are a large number of items backordered due to the amazing sales. My order had several backordered items. Nutraplanet communicated these delays, and when I asked, split up my order to get the available supplies to me. Normally my stuff gets here in ludicrous speed, but when it doesn't I can be sure they are working on it. They are simply the best.

  17. thank you sok, I know NP keeps working hard to make sure that everyone gets their stuff asap

  18. Yes, I was a little disappointed as well - I even asked for samples and got nothing. Still using my AX beanie from last year though! Should not have advertised "Tons of Free Samples & Goodies!" if they were limited. Oh well - I did save a lot of cash, but the surprise of samples is always exciting.
    One more shipment coming today, so I'll keep my fingers crossed!

  19. Love Nutra, love the sale, totally fine with the delays (Nutra also made up for this and was more than helpful throughout)... but when you advertise "tons of free samples," you really shouldn't have to ask to receive them.

    Very disappointed when I saw that I had to ask AFTER I had already placed my order!

  20. I asked and didn't get any either - I think they just ran out...

  21. I wonder If I will get any(I asked for some samples in the notes)...... I got the second order I placed on the 5th, I asked but did not get any samples.... My first order was on 1-1-2010.... still waiting for it(because of an over sold product). I am not at all complaining, but I am wondering if anyone got any free samples from the NY sale yet?

  22. i did not get any samples, about the same size orders i had last year except last year i got samples and a shaker bottle with each of my 3 orders.

    kinda sad but what can you do, still a good deal.

    yeah no samples as promised with a 100 dollar order would have expected at least a little something

  24. so my $200 order came in and had 0 extras.. was really looking forward to another beanie or shaker cup or something. I also find it a little off that it is expected that we have to ask for it when it was advertised as part of the sale selling pitch.

    Here you go Judo

  26. I don't ask for samples cuz it makes me feel like a cheap ass.. only did once but that's cuz my friend heard you have to ask for it and we were combing orders =| Though I did receive samples I felt cheap and worthless afterward..

    So its all about who you know

    I guess it would be different if it wasn't advertised as part of the sale but it was disappointing for a basically first time NP shopper to spend a decent amount and not get what was advertised. It obviously doesn't make or break the deal but still, with other competitor sites giving free stuff in almost all of my orders its just interesting that so many people didn't get anything on here.

  29. I think the people crying about missing a few samples from their order need to place another order for a test booster. Seriously? A few ONE serving samples is going to reduce you to a whiny little girl?

    I think you missed the point I was trying to make. While people do enjoy getting even that one serving sample as a thank you for their business its also a matter of a company following through with what it says.

    Like I mentioned before, its not like its the end of the world, but customers who get treated well and feel that their business is appreciated will come back for more purchases. Its also not like this is a new concept; it's probably the first thing you learn in a business class.

    An example of this is that I know a number of people who don't mind the slightly higher prices on some products and will order from BB.com only because they feel that they are always being taken care of and have developed brand loyalty you could call it.
