    What do you do with "free samples" of supplements that come your way?
    Swallow them? Throw them away? Save them up and hand them out to kids on halloween?
    I don't even know what most of this stuff is supposed to be, so I've just been shoving them into the back of the drawer. There's getting to be quite a wad of them in there.

    I'll take them, as I know what most of those are in the picture.

    But honestly, I look up product information on the samples, and test them out if it is something I am interested in.
    In all reality, most of the products you won't be able to get a true tell on how they will work for you, but you can try out the different flavors. Some of the energy and pre-workout supplements are good to sample if you use a pre-workout already.

    I love them- discover a new taste and see the mixability of some powders. Try out a pre-workout without having to waste money on buying the whole tub. Not many other stores give me little gifts for buying their products icon_twisted.gif

    Give it to a homeless person... I'm sure they would appreciate the nutrition

    You must shop at GNC? I used to manage a GNC, and we would give these GWP's (gift with purchase) out with every order. The reason was to entice future sales. You are supposed to take them and, of course, fall in love with them and come back and buy said sample. Most of the samples have coupons on them so you can save on your next purchase.

    If you don't want them, just tell the associate that you don't want them and to give them so someone else. You can always leave them at your gym, give them to a friend or, better yet, give them to me... icon_lol.gif

    Bwahaha..... I used to do just that. A really robust homeless woman used to come into my store and ask for free shit all of the time, so I would give her the free samples of Super HD, Hyper FX and NO-Explode. I could imagine her fat ass tripping out after taking those energy-enhancing supps. I kind of felt bad because I thought she would be arrested for being on crack but really just freaking out on NO-Explode. That's me... Killing the homeless with free samples of legal crack. icon_twisted.gif
