Examples of Try Me Free products

I am about to send off my receipts for two Try Me Free products and it occurred to me that others may not know about this, or think it’s more fiddly than it actually is, so I thought I’d do a post about it.

The basic premise of Try Me Free is that you buy the product, save the receipt then send the receipt (and sometimes part of the packaging) to the company, usually with a short statement as to why you didn’t like the product. You will generally get a cheque for the value of the product back within a couple of weeks, along with the postage costs (although not all refund the postage so watch out for this).

Today I am sending a receipt for Alpen Muesli and Activia Yoghurt, and I have done this plenty of times in the past.

Be warned however, sometimes things go wrong and you don’t get your refund, so don’t buy products you won’t use and don’t spend a lot of money on them unless you can guarantee you’ll get the cash!
