Think that headline is just a gimmick to get you to read this article? No such chance! I’m sorry to say that Home Ever After’s free samples are so great they are now driving people to a life of crime. People, anonymous people, people whose identities I will never discover… “What is she talking about?” you may be asking. I’ll tell you the sad tale!
Today I went to the post office and was overjoyed to receive my free sample in the mail from Walmart of Weather Works Frizz Ease shampoo, conditioner, and style sealant creme. Or so I thought. When I attempted to open the postcard to get the freebies out, the seal on the postcard had been broken. Peering inside curiously, a chilling discovery was made: the samples WERE GONE! The gummy adhesive strips that had once held my coveted samples to the paper were still intact, but were no longer safely transporting my free products.
Who even has access to a piece of mail in transit? I have no idea! My guesses (complete speculation) include postal workers at the distribution/sorting center, postal workers at the local post office, mail carriers, Walmart sample processing employees, and maybe Walmart’s couriers who drive the samples to be mailed out. I have no idea how many hands touched my sample postcard before it reached its final destination, but in my mind, everybody and anybody is a suspect…
This free sample is no longer available to request from Walmart. I could email Walmart and ask for a replacement, but the samples have probably already run out (since it’s not available anymore). Now I will never know if these 3 products are worth purchasing with my frugal money!
Missing Samples: A Cold Case in the Making?
With no leads and no desire to investigate further, this sample-thievery has all the makings of a cold case- an unsolved mystery, if you will. It’s true we may never know who stole the John Frieda Weather Works Frizz Ease shampoo, conditioner and serum, but I’m not going to lose any sleep over the matter. I will be strong and live to request free samples for another day.
Word to the Wise:
Don’t be driven to a life of crime! I know Home Ever After’s free samples are out of sight, but don’t take them from mailboxes! Instead, sign up for our free RSS feed to be notified of great freebies when they become available and request them. You’ll be glad you did when you starting receiving tons of free stuff in the mail!
