Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

I really want to order some things based on the awesome recommendations I received here, but I don't like any of the free samples! I think I'll wait until the samples change... does that make me too picky?

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

yes! lol

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

Maybe I should have held out on ordering... I just saw they have Marc Jacobs Honey samples Smiley Sad

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

I was just going to post about that! I know how curious others have been about this perfume and I'm glad I held out on ordering anything because I got this neat little sample Smiley Happy I love trying new things but I an extra happy when I get to try them for free (not really though insincere I just spent $50 , lol)

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

That literally just happened to me as well Smiley Sad

I think they know on purpose that when we're about to buy something. Some new samples show up after we hit the submit button. lol

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

Thanks for mentioning it.  I was wanting to smell this but resisting the temptation to stop in the store to get a sample.  I also managed to catch some of the mini Sephora nail polishes in stock (on sale again).  So I ordered 3, got the Amore Pacific 100pt perk, used a code that doesn't have a minimum purchase (Framed, and I got the mini Kat von D lipstick), and added Honey and two other samples to my order.

 

Since I got Flash shipping this cost all of $3.19 with tax, which is less than the gas to get to the store.  And I used part of a $10 gift card I got from points from my cable company giving away gift cards last month.

 

And I can take the mini polish on vacation without too much weight/space and not worry if I end up leaving it behind. Smiley Happy

 

So yes, sometimes I do order when I see samples I like and have things on my wishlist.

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

Just noticed your post too!  Since I have two samples you could each have one...  PM me if you want one!

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

wow, yeah I just placed an order yesterday because one of my items was sale and I didnt want it to run out but i was less than impressed with the samples.  I wish I had held out so that I could have gotten to sample the Marc Jacobs Honey sample Smiley Sad

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

If you still haven't sampled Honey I'd be happy to send you my samples!  I have two and I sprayed one once but didn't like it.  If you're comfortable with sending me your address they're yours if you want them!

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

I got the honey sample, don't be disappointed you didn't get it. I only got a paper sample! Not even one of the sprays (which is what I wanted.) BUT it smells amazing.

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

Well, I did it.  I placed an order just because I wanted to try the Omorovicza sample.  They don't carry super high-end brands at my store so I can't just sample it there.  I almost hope I don't like it!

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

I did the same thing! I had some things sitting in my cart forever since I heard about the Rouge launch in August so I thought I could wait, but when that sample popped up I had to get it! I will definitely submit an awaiting order when interesting samples come along. For better or worse there's always something sitting in my cart Smiley Tongue

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

Yes, all the time.  Especially right now when they have 12 samples but 11 of them are foundations. LOL. Really Sephora?  I mean, I know it's "free" so I can't really complain.  But still, it would be nice if you can at least make sure there's always a variety available.  A skin care, a fragrance, a foundation, an eye shade, a lip product, etc?

 

So, yes.  I've got a $150 order in my cart waiting for better samples to pop up.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

No, never. Because I want the product faster lol

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

Haha I do this all the time.   I've been doing it this month for sure because I realllllly don't like foundation samples.

Re: Do you ever hold out on ordering something if you don't like the free samples?

I wait until I like the samples all the time.  I also will make multiple orders for additional samples if it's something I think I want to have enough of to try out for a few days before I buy full size.
