Woman Tricks Amazon By Ordering Way Too Many Free Carpet Samples, Regrets It Immediately

Published 6 years ago

The best things in life are free. Whether or not you would include carpet samples on the list of those ‘best’ things is completely up to you, but imgur user RowdyMcMenace surely has it scribbled in there somewhere as it brought her a copious amount of joy.

“I definitely got carried away ordering that many!” the woman exclaimed when explaining how it all went down. Apparently, carpet samples (which you can order for free from Amazon) make the perfect scratchers for cats, so the woman decided to order some for her beloved pets. “I never requested these under the pretense of making a purchase, and if a company can not afford to give away free swatches then they shouldn’t offer.”

The first set of samples was pretty small, so she started ordering more. Then she woke up to the mountain of samples waiting for her by the door. “I was in disbelief, then all I could do was laugh and apologize,” she claimed. These apologies were meant to console the delivery guy, who labored away carrying all of the parcels in, and her boyfriend, who helped him out. “I felt awful, but it was already done so might as well make the best of it! He helped me clean everything up then we played with the cats.”

This haul was so successful that after stocking up, the woman decided to donate some of the samples to local animal shelters – because the best thing about happiness is sharing it. Scroll down to see the size of the bounty that the woman acquired after roaming around Amazon.

“It started off innocently enough. I found this cool feature on Amazon to get free carpet swatches and thought they would make a neat cat scratcher and they’re free so…”

“The first bundle arrived and it was a good amount but I realized not all of the textures were gonna be good so I ordered more”


“I am on night shift so I was woken up to this. The delivery guy is not happy. I swear I didn’t realize I ordered this many and I thought they were all going to be small!!”

“They are not small. The cats are super interested and I’m laughing hysterically out of nervousness that my future husband might realize I’m a psychopath and leave me”

“Oh man you guys I’ve really abused the system here. Let me know if you want me to show you how to abuse the system too! I’m an enabler, and it’ll make me feel better”

“I only hope the warehouse guys have dealt with my level of stupidity before because this tops the charts”

“We have halted progress now that all the big ones are open. I regret nothing. 10/10 recommend Kitty thrones”

“My advice: be picky. There’s plenty”


This is your daily reminder that you're good enough and you're beautiful. Make sure to gift your smile to the world a little more often and continue spreading the word of positivity.
