CONGRATS on today's haul! And I'll bet you're right about demographics. My zip code is probably one where sellers think their products will be marketable. I'm still going to keep trying, though, and will report when I do get freebies.
Between living in Jacksonville and Orlando, both being larger cities, I lived in a small town outside of Jacksonville for a little over a year. While I lived there, I got way less freebies than I did with a more metropolitan zip code. Maybe they think in terms of how populated the area is and how many people your word of mouth can reach. I'm sure there is a strategic marketing plan somewhere in there since they surely don't send out freebies just to be nice.

My mailbox was stuffed full today:

I got some diapers
More Nescafe samples (I really like the hazelnut)
The 3M post-it tabs
Crest white strips
More bookmarks ( I love bookmarks)
A free book that is very odd and that I probably won't read
Coupons for free hummus along with recipes
Another sharps container
Another pen (these are great pens)
Last but not least, a cat shaped kitchen timer. I don't remember ordering it but it's cute as a button and I do love cats.

I got a weird one too. Was it religious based? I like Christian books....but this one was bizarre and totally made no sense. I trashed it before God saw it in my house and was offended.....
