Samples in Department Stores

In a previous post (scroll down) we talked about all the sample sites that for a fee will send you  a box of samples.  But paying for samples is not always the way to go.  Department stores also have samples but you need to know how to score.
There are piles of samples behind the counters in department stores but how do you go about receiving them. Salespeople know that samples drives sales and since most salespeople work on commission it is in their best interest to give them out.  It is up to the salesperson if she wants to give them to out.
Don't be shy...act interested. The best time is when the counter is quiet. A hassled salesperson is not interesting in chatting. Sometimes drugstores also have samples. They tend to give them out when they have a in store event. Most of all be nice.
