That was fast!

Yesterday I was happy to see a free sample offer in my email box! Wooohoooo! Free is always great! It was from Tide, their official site. It was for Tide with Dawn in it.

Now, I am a die-hard Tide fan and user. I pay the price for Tide rather than buying 'generic' laundry soap as I do with most other purchases I make for the family. So, I was excited to see this offer for a free sample.

Following the instructions, I went to get my free sample. It was maybe 3 minutes after getting the original email.

Did I get my free sample? NO! I got an error message instead. This offer has expired. Wow! That was fast.

Why did they bother so feed me this little morsel, this tidbit of good news only to yank it all away? Just to let me know that he who holds the freebies has the power!

Altogether, the day just went the way of the freebie. Too fast and too empty.
