Trybe is a brand new “try free samples in exchange for feedback” company from Oslo, Norway and they just launched in the US at the beginning of June 2016 and have been ramping up nicely in 2017! The goal of Trybe is to let the voice of consumers be heard by the brands and ultimately reward consumers for helping shape the brands with their feedback. Using Trybe is similar to Swaggable or SocialNature where you apply by taking a survey and wait to hear if you got approved or not for the sampling program. Currently their product selection is high quality but limited. Since I posted about them they have added more high quality products like the Nutiva Spread so check it out if you haven’t already.
5/29/19 They have relaunched the website. You have to sign up again if you had an account before! It’s proven to be a good source of freebies since it has been around in the USA.
8/8/17 Update Since they launched in the USA- I have received 4 products so far and many other readers got products as well. After leaving a review for the lip lotion, I got 3 more sent in July. It looks as if they are expanding their offering more and like other platforms, they reward people who review! Now that I’ve gotten a few products in my hands from Trybe, it certainly makes it more of a platform I can get behind and believe in. Certainly worth a try if you haven’t tried Trybe yet with the recent freebies received on my end to say the least.
