Moved to comments and suggestions forum from freebies because it's more of a suggestion than a freebie. ;)

Is that a no then? :?

I could test it by posting a try me free in the freebies forum and seeing what response it generates there...

Opinions, anyone? 170+ views on this thread but not even a- "no, that would be pointless!"

I didn't respond to your message as I would not use this kind of thing personally. Perhaps that's why no-one else responded. If you wish to start a thread about it, feel free to do so, and we'll see what the response is like. :D

I guess the only issue for me is whether the point of the thread is to actually try stuff out legitimately or to get stuff for free by trying it and then always claiming the money back.

I've bought a couple of 'try me free' products from the supermarket. I send off for the refunds but so far have never actually recived any. So I wouldn't be that interested in this idea.

That's my main concern too with things like this. Even large corperate companies can't afford to be giving a lot of stuff away for free.

That's a fair point, but wouldn't it be better to include it for the sake of those who would be using it for the right reasons rather than omit it because of those who might be doing it purely for a freebie?

TBH isn't it the same as businesses giving away 'freebies' like the ones in the forum of the same name- a way to get people to experiment with their products? If you were to leave these off the site because some people might never buy the product that the
freebie is promoting, then a whole section of these forums would have to be removed. In a way it is good for the companies who promote their products this way, as a lot of people consequently realise that they like what tried and purchase it again- even those who originally thought they would have no use for it and would just sell it on or whatever.

I have had dozens of successful refunds, and find that as long as you abide by their T&C's then they (99% of the time) always pay up. I now use a lot of the products that I have tried as well, like 'bugs-away', '1001 carpet spot', and 'vimto' to name but a few. So they do pay.

Will post one in the freebie forum and see what happens...

Well, freebies are given as samples more often than not and they aren't always the full amount of product. So you try and buy in that way and that's a different concept to money back offers. However, there are magazine subscriptions which use that principle. Try for three months and get your money back if not completely satisfied fo r instance. I don't think it needs a sticky for that sort of thing though.
