I subscribe to WagJag not because I necessarily need to buy 78 lbs of ground turkey for 65% off the regular price of my firstborn but because sometimes they'll have something really interesting on offer. One such interesting thing showed up about a month ago, where they were offering a sample box from P&G for the cost of shipping: $6.00. Well, any person who has been reading this blog knows that I love samples, getting stuff for little or no money and I enjoy testing out new products and letting all of you in internetland know how it worked.
So, there's the offer:
I think they were being a little generous when they posted an 87% discount from a value of $46.00. I did the math and I could only account for $15.21, but this type of WagJag math is not unusual. I believe they were factoring in full-sized product pricing, when the Pantene, Tide and Cascade are all sample sized. Considering I was guaranteed a full-size mascara and razor, I was willing to pay the $6.00 to get it shipped to me.
I got my sample box today! Here's what I received:
Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Detergent With Dawn Grease Fighting Power sample pack containing 2 packs - estimated retail value of actual product received = $0.78
According to their website: Cascade Platinum Pacs give your dishes the ultimate clean and sparkle. They scrub away tough 24-hour stuck-on food and the advanced formula also helps prevent residue on your dishes and filming in your dishwasher.
It's also not available for purchase in retail stores yet, so that's kinda cool.
CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara, Very Black 800, full size - estimated retail value of actual product received = $7.79
According to their website: Get a blast of bold, volumizing mascaras! LashBlast's patented volume-boosting hypoallergenic mascara formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big-lash look. Now in waterproof, too!
Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive Women's Disposable 5 Blade Razor, full size - estimated retail value of actual product received = $3.49

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Extra Power, full size - estimated retail value of actual product received: $1.68
According to their website: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Extra Power will help you clean your tough messes inside and out. The water-activated micro-scrubbers reach into surface grooves, lifting away the toughest soils with water alone. And it's 50% stronger than Magic Eraser Original, which means it holds up to tough messes better. Try Magic Eraser® Extra Power on kitchen appliances, tiles and grout, and even grill grates, lawn furniture and more. With such an easy, great clean, you can get on to enjoying your favorite space to its fullest, whether that’s getting cozy in the kitchen or relaxing in the yard.
Pantene Pro-V Sheer Volume Shampoo and Pantene Pro-V Sheer Volume Conditioner, 50ml sample sizes (both) - estimated retail value of actual product received: $1.15

Clinically Proven Healthier Hair with Every Wash.
Tide Pods Free and Gentle HE Laundry Detergent sample pack containing 1 pod - estimated retail value of actual product received = $0.32
According to the P&G website: New Tide Pods Free & Gentle provides a deeper clean than the leading Free detergent and the convenience of single-use pacs. This new entry joins the free & sensitive category, which has grown 20% in the last five years. For people with sensitive skin seeking a detergent free of dyes and perfumes, Tide Pods Free & Gentle provides a deep clean that leaves behind no dyes or perfumes on fabrics, for gentleness on skin.
Oddly, the Tide website only lists the powder for this product, not the pods.
So that's what my $6.00 got me, and I'm actually pretty pleased. I don't use any of these products, so I'm looking forward to trying them out and letting you know how it goes!
