Did you know Amazon Prime members get access to entire pages of samples and sample boxes that Amazon will actually reward you for trying? Whether you want some Optimum Nutrition protein bars for $7.99 or an $11.99 variety of treats for your pupper because he's such a good boy, Amazon's collection of sample boxes is growing every day. The fun thing about these boxes is after you've paid for the samples, Amazon will give you an equivalent credit on your account to spend on a full size item.

This works even with individual samples, and Amazon has its own landing page for that! Not interested in an entire box? Get a $2 RXBAR chocolate peanut butter protein bar with free Prime shipping for just this item, and Amazon will give you $2 back you can spend here.

These are great deals for the adventurous. It's a low risk way to try out brands, colors, and flavors you've never tried before, and then you can spend the promotional credit on your favorite new thing. Plus, the grooming and beauty sample boxes give you a bunch of samples you could put in a travel or hiking kit. If you're not a risk-taker, just look for samples of practical stuff you'd use anyway. You're still saving money with the credit you get back.

You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of these samples, so sign up for that here. You can always just sign up for the 30-day free trial if you're really interested.

Here are some of the other sample boxes available right now (the inventory changes frequently):
