I was in the Motherhood outlet today to buy a couple of nursing items.

When I got to the checkout, the girl asked me if I wanted to sign up for some "program" where I would get freebies in the mail. I looked at the sign on the counter that she had pointed at to show me more about the offer and it was sponsored by Similac, Huggies and Parents magazine. It stated that I would get samples from all of them. I told her that I wouldn't be signing up because I don't WANT formula samples.

I then asked her if she happened to have a flyer that I could take home about the promotion and she said no, they just had that sign up.

I thought this was interesting and it was the first I had heard about this "alliance". Good to know.
