free enfamil sent to me? Anyone else?

So.. the door bell rings, I'm thinking GREAT our travel system is here!  

 But no.. we got 3 smaller boxes (the man said if I wanted all 3 I had to pay 5.25, but if not I could just keep 2 of them, So confused?)

I just kept 2 of the boxes..because I didn't order anything, and I'm not sure why I'm getting these but I open it and have 6 $5 off coupons plus 3 8 ounce containers of enfamil... I'm so confused!

  • I have been getting free Similiac (sp?) in the mail, which is an awesome suprise! I don't remember ever signing up for it and I do plan on breastfeeding, but it is nice to have them just in case. Plus, the ones I got are for babies up to 12 months, so I am sure I will use them later on.

    Isn't it awesome getting free stuff? Yes


  • Did you sign up for enfamil's site even? They send free samples :) Similac does too.

  • yes i keep getting samples in the mail. I currently have 3 cans of Similac, a can of Enfamil and then one of the bigger plastic containers of Enfamil! I can't believe I've gotten so much! I'm happy because I"m most likely breastfeeding so now I have some variety to try with my LO and whatever I don't use I will donate.

    Free stuff definitely a plus!   I'm planning on BFing too, but I was just telling my H that we need to get some formula as a back up incase we need it.. Guess I don't have to!

  • I think they must just be sending these things out to every pregnant woman they can.  I've gotten two cans of Enfamil and one of Similac, along with a few $5 off coupons, and even one that's $12 off.  Wuuuut?

    I'm planning on BFing, so I really didn't feel like I had much use for these things, but since I was unable to BF with DD for reasons truly beyond my control, I was like, "Meh, I'd better keep these."

    I'm just taking it for what it's worth, lol.

  • I've gotten them too, along with one for Similac yesterday.  Weird they would make you pay.  Kinda nice getting free stuff. I'm going to breastfeed, but always good to have some formula on hand just in case!
  • i got one box of enfamil this week...love free stuff, even though i intend on breast feeding.
  • I received 2 cans of enfamil as well. I have no clue why I got these because I have never signed up for anything with enfamil. Mine also came with the coupons.

    Yeah, my Bradley teacher first mentioend that's what she did with her samples.  Our dog is a skinny little active beast of a thing, so we're always adding olive oil and cheese and pb to his food to try to fatten him up.  Now, ocassionally I put in a scoop or two of formula.  He likes it :)

    That is awesome.. I might have to do that cause my dog is getting skinny from running around in the heat so much and I've been getting worried about him. Thanks for sharing!

    I bet it is.  I didn't sign up for anything on their websites, and got an Enfamil box on my doorstep yesterday.

  • For those of you receiving "unwanted and unsolicited" formula...why don't you consider donating it to your local food bank or community action agency.

    I'm an accountant for our local community action agency and formula is always in need for our clients.  Just an idea!

    This is what I would've done with it had I not found another beneficial use in our home for it.  Definitely a great idea :)

  • i am getting free formula in the mail, too, for some unknown reason. i think once i signed up for a diaper website the manufacturer figured out i was pregnant and started sending me crap from their other lines. i am going to donate mine to the food pantry at church.

  • With DD I got free Similac and Enfamil in the mail.  These were great to have on hand when I needed to supplement at around 6 months with DD (they hadn't expired).  However - how weird was the charge for the third box?  That seems like a scam...
  • imageMsanchez1125:

    Me either! I signed up but nothing in the mail. My DD1's pediatrician gave me an enfamil sample pack, and my MIL's friend gave me a similac pack though...

    Ladies, definitely keep these on hand even if you plan on breastfeeding. Hold off giving it to your dog :). Once a can is opened it has to be used in one month. Also, no matter how much you want to breastfeed and try, there's always a chance you will need to supplement. My first child had jaundice and lost over 10% of her bodyweight after 5 days and we had to even though I was trying to not introduce formula, a bottle or anything until at least 2 weeks!

  • I got a free package of enfamil too. Only one and it was left in my mailbox.

  • I just signed up for both websites, and pampers, too.  Hope I get some free stuff and I'm not too late!

    Dear God, Since I couldn't hold my little one in my lap and tell him about you, could you hold him in your lap and tell him about me?

  • Well, guess that is how the system works. I signed up for their coupons and samples and did not receive anything in spite of reminders. We have been using Enfamil for my 3 month old, and sure could do with some checks/coupons?

     If anyone is willing to part with their coupons or checks, would be glad to accept them or trade for them? Smile
