    Default Bounty Bags

    My friends keep telling me about Bounty Bags, What are they? I have been to the hospital and met with the midwife, got my little booklet but no bounty bag? Am I meant to receive one? Not sure what they are even?

    You usually get one with your first middy visit and one after the birth.

    Just a bag full of advertising, and a couple of crappy samples.

    You're not missing out on much.

    You get a bag supposedly at first antenatal appt and then one after the birth. I didn't get the first one but got one at the scan place and then got the third one from Target afterwards (there was a voucher in there to redeem it). You get some magazines, samples, vouchers etc.

    It is just bag that is mainly full of flyers and advertising and a couple samples (like a little sudocream tub). It is not very exciting but i will say with all the sudocream samples i have recieved in my various bounty bags i have lasted 4 years without having to ever purchase any - and i use it a fair bit.

    If you google bounty bag you'll find their website and it has a list of pharmacies that you can go to and get one

    Basically you get 3 bags. 1 at your first Midwife visit, second after birth while you are in hospital. Within that second bag there is a coupon to claim a 3rd bag from Target. It contains flyers, discount vouchers and samples. Each bag contains items needed at each stage. The samples come in handy.

    It just a bag full of crap samples that you probably wouldn't ever use - I think there was johnson n johnson sachets, a new born nappy and then a heap of advertising. There was a decent magazine and a DVD from the raising children netwrok. Its kinda like a show bag.

    Not all hospitals do them. I found the new mother one had the most in it, whereas the last one had basically nothing, just pamphlets. There was a $10 off when you spend $5@ at target which was good. They must of changed cause my sister got a lamaze toy in hers a few years ago.

    The samples change with whatever companies send to the bounty organization. But basically they are just info and advertising.

    You can get the first one from tour chemist..google bounty bags, their website says what chemists stock them, or offer you a postage option.

    You can get the first 2 bags at most Priceline shops then the third you get at target with a voucher which is in the second bag.
