Well friends, after mulling it over for months and months, I finally caved and placed an order for a free trial from Honest.com.
You have likely heard of the Honest Company, which is the eco-friendly products company started by Jessica Alba that has all sorts of fantastic products for baby and for the home. They have been offering free trials of products for a long while, and all you have to pay is $5.95 shipping. I’ve almost placed an order from them countless times, but just never pulled the trigger.
Want to know why I finally did it? Because I learned something EXTRA fun about those free trials. They offer 3 different types of trials (diapers and wipes trial, home essentials trial, and health & wellness trial), and here’s the thing: YOU CAN ORDER ALL THREE TRIALS FOR FREE FOR JUST $5.95 TOTAL!!! That’s what I’m talking about! 🙂 All you have to do is click on all 3 options. It is seriously just that easy! But I never thought to try it until today for some reason.
cheap thrifty, but for $5.95, even I know that is a smokin’ hot deal. And really, the company and their products fall in line with my values, and people rave about how great they are, so I’m likely going to find some stuff that I’ll want to order again.
There’s always a catch, right? This one isn’t too bad, as long as you stay on top of it. You have 7 days from the time your trial products arrive to decide if you want to enroll in their monthly subscription service. If you take no action, you will be automatically enrolled once those 7 days pass. Now in my case, since I ordered all 3 bundles, if I don’t cancel within those 7 days I will be billed $155. I’ll also get a 1 month supply of all 3 bundles sent my way. But if I do cancel, then I’m not out any money other than the $5.95 I already paid. And of course, the free trials are mine to keep either way. Nothing to ship back!
I have my calendar marked for 5 days from today to log into my account and cancel one or more of my subscriptions. It’s entirely possible that I will be nuts about some of the products and want to order more, but I can tell you now that I can’t afford to get all 3! Honest.com also reports that they will remind you several times about your subscription options so that you don’t feel like you were “tricked” into subscribing.
So what are you waiting for? The deal has been around for a while, but I’m not sure if the ability to order all 3 free trials is new. It was new to me, that’s for sure!
