I love freebies! Well, who doesn't? You actually get something without paying for it. So, when I got my Belle de Jour (BDJ) planner, I tore off coupons offering free product samples -- Athena Milk and CarbTrim Iced Tea Mix. I scanned the front and back of the coupons and e-mailed them to Unilab, the manufacturer of these products. Following are their e-mail addresses:

For Athena Milk -- athenamilk.unilab@gmail.com
For CarbTrim -- blockcarbs.carbtrim@gmail.com

I e-mailed Athena and CarbTrim last February 1, 2012.  Athena replied on February 29;  CarbTrim, on February 9.  Both said that I should expect shipment within TWO weeks.

I received the samples on March 22, 2012. Well, despite the long wait, I was happy and excited. It was the first time that I received freebies (hehe). (Oh, that's nor exactly accurate! I received free patron tickets -- to a Cyndi Lauper concert -- from a kindhearted blogger last March 16, 2012. I will post about the concert soon!)

For those BDJ girls planning to claim their samples, I think it would be better if you claim them personally at their office:

Bonaventure Plaza 
Ortigas Ave, Greenhills, San Juan. 
(Right in front of Greenhills, beside the gas station) Tel: 858 1281.

If you want the samples to be delivered to your home, be prepared to wait. :)

    1. Hi, Lala! The sample coupons were included in the BDJ planner. If you want, I can send you some of the coupons from the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (you get freebies when you purchase CBTL drinks). Or discounts from other establishments. Just e-mail me if you are interested. :)

  2. wow those are great samples :) congrats !

    1. Hi, Mylene! Thanks! The Athena Milk really tastes good.
