They have the same program for AUS where they release samples & you log in to request them. I'm hoping this will be the same.

Is it just me, or does this site seem to have lots of growing pains? I got two boxes of samples in the Fall, but I haven;t been able to get a thing since then, even if I'm at the site early. I have left all of my feedback, shared on social media, etc. Any ideas?

There's no doubt PinchMe has been experiencing growing pains. They have 83,174 likes on Facebook, so they have at least that many members (likely tens of thousands more) after only a couple months. For comparison, Influenster (founded in 2010) has 148,000 likes and BzzAgent (found in 2002) has 129,000 likes. There's no way that PinchMe expected that many users to register in such a short amount of time, when similar sites took years to reach that many users.

They're a brand new word-of-mouth marketing firm and it takes time to build a client base. Hopefully once their enrollment starts to decline, we'll start receiving samples more regularly and they'll sort out the site issues.

If a person is required to complete and return an IRS W-9 form (i.e. Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification) on a $35 win and have departure, logistical issues on value...well.... sum ting wong. (talking about their little sweeps via email of 25 boxes valued at $35ea.)
I mentioned their "rules" and the W-9 form for $35 on their FB page and it was quickly removed. Growing pains for sure. Used to be weekly, getting spread further and further.
I've received BZZ items valued at more than $35 and I never had to fill out an IRS form.

Yeah, a W-9 (I think) has to be issued at $600+.

It's good for some and not for others. They are having some growing pains. Here's the link to a thread in freebies.

I'm a member. I managed one sample (requested end January, received last week) but haven't had much luck on others as I've been busy on the release dates and they tend to sell out very fast. Other than that I do like it but I feel unless I get more aggressive when samples are released, or they offer many more samples, I probably won't be testing very many.

I'm confused and a bit concerned for you. You've responded in the thread that's in freebies. Maybe just having a brain fart? I love PinchMe.
