Anyone participating in the iloveinns sampling program? Do they still have the 'rule' that once you sign up you're signed up forever? I wanted to do this a few years ago but the restrictions were that you couldn't get out of it and it was the INN that was signed up so even the next owners had to keep it up.

I did not look this time (did a couple in the past) because my uniqueness is MY roasting the coffees.

I looked at the form. Did not search the site. Though it was easier to just ask. ;-)

I'm not really interested in the coffee as we use a local roaster we love. Not really wanting to support a major brand name. Just wondering about the other offerings.

I stopped my paid listing several yrs ago, but I don't think they have had any samplings for a long time. I recall the cereal, Tom's toothpaste, Olay, and creamers.

This topic came up on another forum and many posted that they have not had any offers in quite some time. This topic came up after a marketing email from the directory which touted their sampling partnership.
I don't recall the lifetime commitment.

This e-mail said you do not have to be listed on the site to participate. I dropped all but Mary White a few years ago. Kept hers because it was the least expensive of the "shotgun" marketing.

You don't have to be a member to do the samples.

What have you got to loose if you try it? If you don't like the samples donate them to a homeless shelter.
