Important: Facebook Changing Newsfeed Settings

Facebook is going to be making some changes to their user settings, so you might not be seeing updates from any fan page including ours. We post samples and deals that sometimes go extremely quick, so Facebook is the best way to ensure that you see them.

No worries, there’s a quick fix, but you’ll want to do it before the changes take effect. Here’s how:

1. Look at the top of your facebook homepage and click on Most Recent. Then click on Most recent once more.

2. Of the options that show up, click “Edit Option”
3. On the box that shows up, click the down arrow and select “All of your friends and pages” and save

4. Done πŸ™‚

Now if you don’t want all your fan page updates, but don’t want to miss ours there’s a fix for that to:

1. Just click here and add Sample Stuff as a friend on facebook. We post all our updates there too, so you’ll see it in your feed.

    Thank you for all the wonderful finds you share with us daily!

    My lil boy sure could use a new pair of tennis shoes!!!!!

  30. I dont like changes! But thank you so much for the tip! Im definetely adding you so i wont miss any if your updates! πŸ™‚

  31. Thank you for the heads up. I appreciate your timely updates and the way you keep us ahead of the game.

  32. i found that if one had already edited the options (ie: blocked game posts, or annoying friends) they were defaulted to their current settings anyway. it appears the people affected by this change were the ones that never changed the setting from all/everyone. another example of fb irony – people who wanted everything all of a sudden found they were limited…

  33. Thank you! With 3 little ones under 3 I barely have time to keep up with laundry, let alone all the changes facebook is making lately. Adding you as a “friend” as well so I can (hopefully) sign up for the SMS alerts…I am forever missing out on important updates because I am not around a computer.

  34. I haven’t seen you blocked off my page yet! I checked my settings last night, and they are set to show all, but I know I still don’t see everyone on my list.

  35. thanks for letting everyone know i already had to do that about a week ago i noticed that at least 60% of the pages i am a fan of were not showing up in my feed and i was determined to fix it lol and figured it out i didnt know it was a thing facebook was doing though i thought mine was messed up or something

  36. Thanks for the headsup! I really hate when facebook makes changes that makes things worse and are to no ones benefit! If it aint broke, don’t fix it!

  37. Thank you for the information. I took care of my settings just now! Also, thanks for all the deals you provide! Love the savings you pass on to us!!

  38. Hi there! I was so lucky to have come across your website a few weeks ago, that now everyday I’m looking for updates on Facebook. I even check your webpage, too. You never know what good article or freebie I may come across. Thanks for all you do!

  39. I am all for change but I really didn’t see anything wrong woith the way it was. Now I had a picture I wanted to delete and on it there was no delete option. Most of them have this option but certain ones don’t …what’s up with that.? Oh well go with the flow..or say no and go?

  40. Thanks for keeping us informed. It is hard to keep on trackof all the differnt changes to our accounts/privacy.

    Keep up the good work πŸ™‚

  41. Thanks for letting us know about this. The change actually isn’t bad. Thanks for the giveaway. Would love to win but good luck to everyone else πŸ™‚

  42. I love this website. I’m new to it and fell in love my first day on here. Thanks for all the help during the bad economy we are in.

  43. I just found this out yesterday! Facebook IS in charge, and I guess we are kind of guest, but this is no way to treat a guest! Not from the South where I was raised.

  44. Thank you for the information, I will go back now and get mine fixed. I do appreciate getting the goodies that I can use from your post!!! Thanks.

  45. Thanks for the update! I never knew that, maybe that’s why I don’t see all of the updates from friends and companies.

  46. yeah for facebook updated pages, yeah for pages and yeah for samplestuff and coupon pages on facebook!!!! love it!

  47. It’s great knowing I’m receiving all my updates now! I can’t stand when I miss a good offer because it didn’t show up in my newsfeed. Thanks!

  48. So glad to see this it helped me figure out why people weren’t on my page anymore. They were blocked. THANK YOU! So even if I don’t win I got a problem fixed.

  49. I really love your page, so thanks bunches for telling us how to fix that before the changes take place!!! πŸ™‚ Do we always need to say what store we would want the gift card for in case we win? If so, Target. πŸ™‚

  50. i heard this. what a dum thing for FB to do. love this site. would hate for it to get lost in the daily grind shuffle. but i think i would notice

  51. I did this chage a while back but i made sure that i could still get your feeds i would hate to go with out it.
    Thank you

  52. I love this page. I have gotten numerous things and I have passed this along to friends. Keep up the great stuff!

  53. i wake up every morning, feed my kids, then go straight on my comp and check on sample stuff before checking my emails. if i do go on facebook, i have you as friend and i’m still able to check out your deals for the day. love, love your site!!

  54. Thanks for the valuble information. This is helpful to see all my friends and pages that I like. Have a great free weekend.

  55. I just added you as a friend! I’m glad you mentioned the change, because otherwise I wouldn’t know.

    For the giftcards, I would like one to H&M or Safeway. Thanks!

  56. Thank You, just did this. Don’t know what I’d do without my Sample Stuff.!! Hope I get to be a winner this time. Happy Valentine’s Day. Walmart would be my store.

  57. Thanks for the update. I would love to wn a gift card. I have been off work for a broke pelvic since Jan, 6 and I am no going to be able to go back to work until March 22. I am not healing well. So in my spare time which is all day now I am onlin looking for freebees. I love this site andgoing to update afer I send this message. I could really use the gift card-I am th eonly one working in the house and it is very difficut for us right now. My puppy Teddy kocked me down-that’s how I hurt myself and he is laying right next to me as I am typig. He is 7 months old and he has been so sad since this happened and now I can’t walk him for a long time. Thanks for all the free offers and Go bless you.

  58. I’m already a fan of your page and would love to win a gift card, ebay or would be really nice!! Good luck everyone!

  59. this sounds SWEET! i seen this and thought id give it a try not really a BIG believer in winning anything. but Im hoping…got my finders and toes crossed. πŸ˜€

  60. Thanks for the info, as facebook keeps changing and I have to relearn where everything is and how to locate what I need.

  61. Thanks for the info and instructions on how to deal with new FB settings! (P.S. a gc to Target would be lovely.)


  63. Thanks! I manually click on the page several times a day, like an addition, but reset mine anyway, just in case!

  64. Thanks so much for all of the freebies, I love getting the mail everyday now! Hoping for that $25 gift card. I’ve got a new baby so it would be awesome to win. Thanks again!

  65. Thanks for all you do, including this important info about the FaceBook Page since I share these deals with my friends I will have to share this with them also.

  66. Thanks! I’m wondering about Facebook. They seem to change the things we love and not get rid of the things we want. But THANK YOU for letting us know!

  67. What would I do without our updates and all other wonderful information ou give us. Thank you so very much for keeping us in the know. No one else has taken the time to do this but you and it is very much appreciated. Winning a gift card would be wonderful as I am raising my two wonderful grandchildren after the death of our precious daughter. Thank You.

  68. Thank you for letting me know about important updates. I love this site and getting the disounts and free items!!

  69. Thank you for always posting great links for the freebies! My kids love when samples come in they think they are made just for them

  70. Thanks so much for your free sample links, guys. My mom has always been a huge fan of getting things for free, and since she’s gotten more and more sick it’s the little things that keep her happy. You guys work hard for us and it’s appreciated. πŸ™‚

  71. Thank you so much for the information. Now, I just wish they would give us a way to keep all of the comments in chronological order. >:P Facebook developers aren’t using their noggins!!!

  72. I love this πŸ™‚ ty for all the cool stuff. Make it so nice to try things out so you know it works in the tough times we are going through. again a huge TY

  73. Thank you for keeping us informed. I am the mother of 3 kids ad depend on freebies and coupons to stretch finances

  74. I think Facebook should have to notify us individually when they make these type of change. If someone like you guys or our friends don’t tell us what is going on, we’d never know. Thanks for everything!

  75. I *knew* something wasn’t right…I could see more updates and such on my phone than I did on my laptop! All fixed now. Thank you!

  76. Thank you for this information. Not to mention all of the other work you do for us. I have been trying to figure this out, so thanks again!

  77. Thank you for letting us know that information! I am tired of FB making all these changes:(. Really glad for all the samples that you tell us about. I have gotten to try some new products that I would not have tried without sampling first. Thank you for providing this service.

  78. Does the ant store of the users choice include places to eat? That would be a nice valentines day present to my fiancΓ© and sons… He he

  79. I’m really starting to like your website! And I thank you for the update info! Your website has helped me in many ways! keep up the good work and i will keep on supporting and showing appreciation!

  80. Since I’ve found your site, I’ve become addicted to free things! Thank you for all the hard work you do for all of us to get goodies in the mail! You made going to the mailbox fun again!
