  • Keep urself invovle as much as u. An maintain ur points by comments and reviews

  • I haven’t received a sample or been selected for a review, but i keep trying. I have won a couple of books which was lovely. I think that if i was a member just for the freebies though i would have unsubscribed ages ago. The reason I stay is because it is interesting, has some great articles, recipes, craft projects etc. Enjoy!

  • I have not yet got a free sample did not know they do them.

  • They offer free samples of products that match your profile. You complete the application form and hope to be chosen. I have been chosen for a few. Often it is stated that there are plenty of samples available and to tell others to apply and then you don’t get chosen.
    If you are interactive with the website, you will receive offers. If you are not interactive, you will not receive offers. You can become interactive again and receive offers.
    Like the other responders say, there are many other aspects of the website to enjoy. I have found some Go To recipes here.

  • Enter the comps and hopefully you will win a prize! Good luck!

  • I’ve never received samples but have been lucky enough to win a prize.

  • Make sure your subscribed and receiving regular emails and every so often you will be asked to apply to review a variety of products. I wish you all the best.

  • The samples are pretty rare, and I don’t think anyone really understands how you get chosen for reviews. Certainly, doing timely and comprehensive reviews when chosen doesn’t seem to increase your chances at all. I’d say jst enjoy all the site has to offer, and don’t count on samples/ review products.

  • Offers to complete reviews are emailed. This is an excellent site for mums as well as us grannies. I really enjoy reading the articles, reviews and comments. It is like a refresher course for me as often I struggle for ideas for the grandkids regardless of the fact that I did the same things years ago for my six kids.

  • You need to generally apply when samples come up. The mom team will review applicants and choose those most suited to the product to offer the sample to review. But this site is much more than samples. It’s a place to read, share and contribute with other mums!

  • They give out monthly prizes but not so much samples

  • If you keep posting comments and reviews you may win a monthly prize. I enter the competitions but have not been lucky enough to win.

  • I have found it very difficult to qualify for a MoMs review to get free stuff. But I enjoy do many other aspects of the site, I’m not too worried about free stuff

  • Welcome to mums. This is a lovely site with many interesting articles, recipes, art & craft ideas, competitions and many more. Personally I love to read the articles the most.
    The more you respond to the articles on Mums, the more chance you have you receive a prize.

  • I’ve received a few books for commenting on articles, posting and reviews. The books are actually quite good
