    Free samples from the AG store - what's going on?

    Anyone else notice that the free car care samples that I always include whenever I order from AG have been greatly diminished? Just one in the Pinnacle lineup, three Wolfgang products, and a few Blackfire and Marine 31 products.

    Just curious - love those samples - would hate to see that go away.

    Re: Free samples from the AG store - what's going on?

    Oh dang... They really cut it down A LOT. I thought it was bad a year or two ago when they removed some of the expensive items like the WGDGpS3.0 sample from the list. Then when PBMG got sold, the McKee's samples went away too. But this is crazy! Only 1 product from Pinnacle and only 3 from WG? At the rate it's going, looks like free samples will be gone sooner than later.

    I've never received any free anything from AG. But then again I don't bother to click anything extra to get them. Placed a few big orders this year too.

    Back like 5 years ago, your got free samples when you purchased $50 worth. And they had practically everything in 2oz form to try, oh the memories...
    Back to the full-time grind.

    This is me too, although I never knew it existed! I though it was a randomly selected process..

    So strange about the good old days. You never realize your in them at the time your living them...

    I was a lurker in 07/08... Those were some exciting times for the industry that would be coming up...

    I always click the free samples. Loaded up on Wolfgang Uber Compound. Got 16 oz free over time.

    I have chosen some free samples. I've also then ordered them as I had a chance to see what they were like. I'd think a manufacture would LOVE to give free product out for this reason.

    Maybe some cost cutting since PBMG sold?

    Yes, on my last couple of orders I didn't see any thing free that I wanted. I was giving the PBMG branded plastic and vinyl samples to friends who use Amour All. Made a few converts to quality. Not on the list any longer.
