With a name like Free.ca, it's safe to say that we love getting free samples, and what better way to collect them than through the best loyalty programs in Canada?
Major companies love rewarding their customers with rewards points, exclusive savings, special contests, and even free samples because it keeps us coming back for more.It only makes sense to use these programs to save money, especially if they are items you are already buying often.
Have you met the new PC Optimum loyalty program that was rolled out in 2018 as part of the Loblaws and Shoppers Drug Mart acquisition?
Get the answers to all your questions like what's changed, what happens to my points, and how do I get as many freebies as possible right here.
You'll also earn 10 points on every purchase to use towards more free coffee and beans. Find out how to get your free cup of joe right here.
Not much of a coffee drinker? No worries - David's Tea also offers some awesome freebies in their Frequent Steeper program! You'll get a free cup for signing up, a free drink on your birthday, and you'll be the first to know about exclusive promotions.
Not to mention you'll earn points for every dollar you spend which you can redeem for tea and accessories. Learn how to join the program today.
Starbucks Rewards is one of the most popular customer loyalty programs in Canada (and the US for that matter) for a reason.If you join today, you'll immediately get free refills, complimentary birthday drinks, and exclusive offers. Over time, you'll earn points on all your orders that you can redeem for free food and drinks.
Although it's not a full rewards program, everyone loves the simplicity of the Milestones freebie offer: sign up for their newsletter and get a free hot spinach and artichoke dip!
UPDATE: Cineplex announced that Milestones is now included in their Scene Partners, so you can earn and redeem Scene points when you eat there! We're going to be adding the Cineplex Scene program to the list shortly, so this rating may change soon...stay tuned!
When you join Boston Pizza's MyBP Club, you'll get a whole lot of freebies for the family:
Free baby samples are very popular among Canadian families, that's why top brands do their best to help new and existing parents prepare their kids for a happy, healthy life. They even throw in a few freebies for mommies and daddies, too!
Proctor & Gamble is one of the world's biggest companies for household products. When you join their P&G Everyday loyalty program, you'll get access to tons of great coupons and free samples from their popular brands like Pampers, Tide, Cascade, Swiffer, and more.
Calling all new parents and parents-to-be! Huggies has 2 loyalty programs, Huggies Rewards and No Baby Unhugged, where you can receive newborn diapers, wipes and even pregnancy freebies to help you prepare for your little one.We like this program because you get free samples right away and you can earn points and redeem them for items in their rewards catalogue. You can even redeem points for gift cards or donate your points as diapers to babies in need, which is a creative opportunity to give back.
The Nestlé Baby Club loyalty program is another popular way to get baby samples in Canada. The unique thing about this one is that they give you free samples throughout your babies journey according to their age (but there is no point system.)You'll also get a free $130 welcome package when you sign up.
You'll get $175 in free samples and gifts right away when you sign up for the Similac Club. We also like that Similac sends helpful nutritional information to parents along with formula coupons, especially since becoming a new parent is full of challenges and questions.

Similar to the other family-focused programs, you receive free samples and coupons for formula and other baby essentials leading up to your child's birth.They also host monthly challenges that give you the chance to get $5 cash back on your next purchase for watching videos, registering for samples, and other activities on their site.
