Free True Protein Whey Protein Concentrate Sample - Delivery Included

1261
TPFREESAMPLE

True Protein are running their free sample offer again, which proved fairly popular last time around: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/149444.

Four different flavours of their NZ sourced whey protein concentrate are available: French Vanilla, Rich Chocolate, Iced Chai and Strawberries & Cream. First sample is free including delivery, additional samples are $2 each.

Site says Facebook like is required, however I managed to checkout without liking their page. Per rep comments below, Facebook like required.

I ordered 2kg of WPI during their recent BOGOF offer and was happy with the purchase.

I didn't complete the transaction, however it looks like you may be able to add a sample to an order less than <$150 and still get free shipping on the total order.


Edit: Message from rep

Hey Guys, sorry I'm a bit late to the party.

We are offering free samples again AND we do check to see if you have liked our facebook page PLUS we are actively checking to see if there have been multiple orders to the same address and reserve the right to not send the sample in this case.

Unfortunately, we have received a massive number of free sample requests (from ozbargain) and very few corresponding facebook likes. We have to review every order and ensure that the like was made.

If you have no intention of adding a like, or if you have already had a free sample, please save us the extra work of having to check your order. We appreciate the "It doesn't hurt to try" mentality, but in this case, it does hurt us. We still need to review every order, and although we have a system in place - we are a small company and this costs us valuable time.

Should we continue to receive a huge number of ozbargainers trying for a free sample without performing the very reasonable conditions we've set out, we will simply have to remove free samples from our website altogether.

That would be a shame, because as is evident from many of these comments and the comments from those who received free samples in our last post - the product is awesome and we would love to give everyone an opportunity to try it out!

Thanks for your understanding and I look forward to hearing any questions or thoughts you may have here.

  • Ordered, thanks OP!

  • Didnt work for me. Applying the discount code kept refreshing the page, but showed no errors.
    Good thing I chose DirectDebit, so it didnt charge my card/PP.

  • Thanks op.

  • thanks op!

  • Cheers OP!

    • to where? did you apply the coupon code? Didnt charge me!

    • +5

      Skip past that part, you'll see the total is $0 at the bottom. Don't even bother with payment method, just submit.

    • Add the coupon code.

    I usually buy from VenomProtein but I really like the initiative shown by TrueProtein here. Surprised that the shipping fee was waived as well. $12 worth of value for free, damn. Ordered the iced chai flavour sample, see how it goes. Thanks for the link OP!

    • +1

      Same here,
      Hoping the iced chai is good

    • +1

      Iced Chai is fantastic - especially if you're feeling a bit burned out on vanilla or chocolate.

      All of our flavours are much more subtle in that they really aren't all that sweet.

      Thanks for your business and I look forward to hearing what you think.

  • Any experts on this stuff. I am just starting to use a little protein after sport as I needed a faster recovery time and it helped.
    Isn't this one a little high in the carbs 1680kj per 100g for just protein? Or is there a reason for it. I'm comparing to some I see with 300-500kj per 100g. Usually the ones I see with this carb level are labelled as some sort of energy/bulk formula. (i'm comparing similar protein content)

    • +2

      500kj per 100g doesn't make any sense.

      If you had 100g of pure protein that would be over 1600kj. So the ones you're looking at wouldn't have much protein in them at all. Unless you're confusing calories with kilojules?

      • Thanks you are right I was comparing kjs to Calories. That's great then cause the strawberry looks like it might be a go for me.

  • +4

    How many muscles will this give me?

    • +6

      Zero, unless you start working out. :p

  • +6

    Remember the two protein freebies around this time last year which never arrived?
    It would be nice if this one comes.

    • +2

      Thats what she said?

    • Simply like us on facebook, place your order and we'll get the sample out to you shortly. Unfortunately, we have a lot of requests to sift through that didn't do a "like" or have had free samples in the past. As a result, there may be a small delay in getting these samples out.

      We're serious about giving everyone an opportunity to try our protein out FREE, as evidenced by the many ozbargainers who have posted about the protein they received here and on our previous post.

      Hope you like and please take a moment to post back here with your thoughts on the product once you've received it.

      • Ok, I retrospectively liked your Facebook page. What if my Facebook name is slightly different to my name in my True Protein order? Thanks.

  • +2

    never got mine from last time

    • +2

      Really?

      I ordered mine on a Friday and got it on the Monday. Was good tasting protein.

    • Hey OYC, PM me your email address, I'll look your order up in the system and see what happened to your free sample. Cheers!

    You guys might want to rethink the FB like, the T&C's specifically state:

    Facebook like will be confirmed before free sample is shipped.

    • +1

      Thanks Nismo for pointing this out! :)

      • No problem. Don't ask me why but I always read the fine print, I'm strange like that.

        Btw Rep, I did the FB like and put an order in, though my FB account & email used for the order aren't linked so I'm hoping you use other details to verify, eg my name?

      • Would be nice if my samples get processed! I did the Facebook thing and I paid for a couple of extra samples too..

  • Do you need to put your credit card details in?

  • +1

    Doesn't work for me, still charging me for the sample and postage

    • First time comes up free, then after I submit it says

      Error processing PayPal Payment. Please try again or change your payment method.

      And the price changes to $11.90

      • Don't do it through PayPal. Use direct deposit and it should work

        • Have you done it? Does it not take out any money from your account?

        • @markj:
          Yeah I did it. You don't put any bank details in so don't worry

        • Went through successfully but still asked to pay $11.90. Given up

    • Any chance you can sell the raw protein in bulk supply bags? I'm sure there'd be a few people here keen on a bargain

      • +4

        OK guess I'll just order from Bulk Nutrients again

  • Cant get the coupon to work

    never got my free sample last time a couple of months back.

    waste of time

    • Hello there,

      please pm me the email address you used to place your free sample order the first time round and I will look into it.

      Cheers!

      • Sent you a pm, you said you would send out a sample anyways

        2 weeks later, still no sample.

  • It keeps trying to charge me for the free sample, does the coupon code even work?

    • As soon as you add the free sample to your cart, you should get a message stating that you are getting it for free.

      When you go to checkout, you'll see that the shipping cost is cancelled out and the amount owed is $0.00.

      Simply choose to pay by bank transfer and once we've checked facebook for the like, we'll approve to send out your sample.

    • +1

      For me, the coupon was already applied (didn't need to copy & paste), everything worked - no shipping cost.

      • Again Nismo,

        Thanks for chiming in!

  • Ordered mine, I have family obviously living at the same address who have put in for samples - surely you don't expect us to share the same 1 sample pouch?

    • +1

      Seriously mate, come on. Your feeding protein powder to your kids and the dog too ?

  • I've got an email confirming the sample has been shipped. Thanks! :)

  • Rep, any chance of bringing back the BOGOF offer?

  • Hey Guys,

    We've been hit with a huge number of free sample requests to process. We'll take the offer down for now and let you know when the dust has settled if we have the stock to bring it back.

    Thanks!

  • LOL I was just going to pay for extra samples filled out the checkout and my time was wasted……

    Thanks.

    Have their products been independently tested?

    You can't trust these supplement powder companies to supply exactly what their labels say:

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=no+bull+supplements+test

    A quick look at their website reveals these problems with their WPCs alone:

    • NZ WPC is ~$11/kg more expensive than AUS WPC which is a huge mark-up.
    • Various prices across their website are inconsistent.
    • NZ WPC contains 79.8 % protein versus AUS WPC containing 76.0 % protein however they have identical amino acid profiles.
    • The shared amino acid profile sum totals to 110.3 g per 100 g.
      • He raises a good point that you can't necessarily trust what supplement companies say. We are and will continue to be as transparent as possible. Please see the comment below regarding independent certification.

      • +1

        Some users here actually follow up receipt of a free sample with a purchase if they like the product. Others still are consumers of protein powders and are looking for a bargain. Both groups I am trying to assist by informing them of what I have found.

        Frustrates me that we all use this site to get bargains but there is always some keyboard warrior that has to ruin it for everybody.

        I'm not ruining anything, except maybe True Protein's façade.

        These guys are giving away something for free so people can make their own judgment yet we have this chump trying to spoil the party.

        There is more to judge to a protein powder than its taste — like whether or not you're getting the actual protein on the label. This should be determined by an independent lab test.

        I can see that you signed up 6 min before making that post and it was your first action: This is highly suspicious of a sockpuppet.

        • Sockpuppeting is a pretty serious claim and I would be curious to know from the mods why this post was unpublished.

          We have sent out thousands of free samples to people on the ozbargain community and are not responsible for their actions on this site.

          I have asked around and can confirm that the comment was not posted by anyone in the office.

          Certainly, the tone of the comment was not something I could condone and it is clear that you are simply acting in the best interests of the community.

          We have independently certified our proteins and will continue to do so. If you have any suggestions on how we can be more transparent please pm me to let me know.

    • +2

      To be clear, we are one of the only companies that provides independent certification on our proteins which are easily found on both of our NZ protein pages by clicking the button "View Independent Certification".

      If you prefer, here's the direct links to those results:
      NZ-WPC: http://www.trueprotein.com.au/assets/brochures/WP-WPC.pdf
      NZ-WPI: http://www.trueprotein.com.au/assets/brochures/WP-WPI.pdf

      We are currently waiting for the report on our AUS-WPC, but it has been confirmed, as with the rest of our independently certified products to be completely above-board. PM me your email and I'll forward it to you when available.

      I'm curious to know the reason for your posting a link regarding No Bull? We are in no way affiliated with them and would appreciate you not lumping us in with them. If you would like to see what others have posted regarding our product on the forums independently here's a great place to start:
      http://ausbb.com/showthread.php?t=27025

      Regarding amino acid profile sum to over 100g, it is simply due to a margin of error on each of the individual amino acid and reporting the higher end of the results for each. This is a common industry practice, and if you would like me to provide examples of other companies that report in this fashion, please let me know.

      Thanks for attempting to educate the community on this as there are plenty of companies who do not independently certify and could be accused of shady practices.

      Hopefully I can put your concerns to rest and illustrate that everything we do is to the highest standard and as transparent as possible.

      Cheers!

      • Hi rep,
        Sorry, I honestly didn't see the Facebook like condition (I guess I have a habit of skim reading these posts). I have liked your Facebook page now, is there a way I can get assurance that my order is on the way?

        • No worries, you will receive dispatch notification once your sample is posted.

      • I've voiced these same concerns when other protein powder deals have been posted, so I'm not picking on anyone in particular.

        I'm curious to know the reason for your posting a link regarding No Bull?

        It's just the best example of the potential issue in the industry.

        Regarding amino acid profile sum to over 100g, it is simply due to a margin of error on each of the individual amino acid and reporting the higher end of the results for each. This is a common industry practice,

        Common industry practice or not it is nonsensical to quote a figure to 2 or 3 significant figures if the error is ~10 %.

    Got mine on Monday, good delivery speed. Will be trying the Rich Chocolate later this morning.

      The Rich Chocolate was great, nice flavour.
      The French Vanilla, not so great for me, not enough flavour.

      I mixed both exactly the same, with 200ml water. It suggests 150-250ml on the pack.

      Still to try the Iced Chai.

  • Never received.
