We came for the free shipping. We stayed for the trial-size Elizabeth Arden moisturizer. Introducing Prime Samples, a new feature that allows shoppers to test out beauty products before
Here’s how it works: Each travel-size sample costs either $2 or $4 and, after you make your purchase, Amazon refunds the amount to you in the form of credits. These can be used towards the final purchase of the full-size product you tested or, if you didn’t love, towards another full-size beauty product. And these aren’t just random brands you can get at any ol’ drugstore. There are hundreds of top-rated products to choose from, from Vichy’s Micellar Cleansing Water to Skyn Iceland’s Hydro Cool Firming Face Gels.
And although each shopper can only buy one sample of a particular product, there’s no limit to how many different product samples you can order. Plus, this amazing perk extends to categories other than beauty—from food and groceries to baby and household products.
Amazon, is there anything you can’t do?
