As if we needed another reason to buy everything on Amazon, we go and uncover a whole new section of affordable offerings, most of which are $2. Yes, two bucks. Believe it or not, Amazon has a special sample store, filled with everything from beauty to baby care products, exclusively for Prime members. Translation: You can get your hands on samples of some of Amazon’s bestsellers for about $2 a pop. And if that weren’t enough, Amazon will issue you a credit for every sample you buy, redeemable when you purchase the full-size product.
If it sounds too good to be true, we feel you. So we rounded up a few of the best samples you can score for $2 in this awesome hidden section. From fancy laundry detergent to disposable diapers, here are some of the coolest kinds of samples you can order for $2 on Amazon:
Beauty & Grooming
While there’s no shortage of cosmetic sample sites on the web, Amazon Prime’s beauty & grooming sample section still manages to stand out among the rest. With everything from lip gloss to maternity-specific skin care to hair growth samples, this section currently offers more than a hundred items you can try out for peanuts.
Personal Care & Household
If we told you that you could get your hands on a $2 trial pack of The Laundress’ signature detergent, would you believe us? Amazon Prime’s sample section offers several trial-sized packets of The Laundress products, as well as allergy meds, Tylenol, and feminine care products.
Beverages & Food
Itching to try those seaweed snacks your friends keep talking about but not ready to pay full price? Amazon offers an impressive assortment of food and beverage samples, ranging from superfood-style cereals to ground coffee to—you guessed it—olive oil flavored seaweed snacks, all for two bucks.
Babies aren’t cheap, and neither are specialty baby care products. That’s why Amazon’s baby sample section, complete with disposable diapers and baby food, is such a game-changer. You can decide if those organic diapers are actually worth the price, and get a $2 credit towards the full pack just for trying them out ahead of time.
Vitamins & Supplements
Ask any health fanatic and they’ll tell you the same: vitamins and supplements can be expensive. Thankfully, Amazon’s sample section has a decent assortment of vitamins (for both adults and kids) and herbal supplements, so you can try out those pricey beet root supplements before splurging on a whole bottle.
Why go with one measly sample when you can score a whole freaking sample box? Amazon Prime offers full-blown sample boxes packed with multiple trial-sized packets of beauty products, snacks, and even nutrition and wellness samples, most of which are under $10 a box and all of which earn you a hefty credit towards the full-size product.
