Have you ever bought something you couldn't return and ended up hating it? Then you may be interested in Amazon's new service.

Prime Samples lets Prime members sample tons of products for $2-$4 each. Once a sample ships, Amazon will refund the amount spent in the form of credits on the customer's account that can then be used to purchase eligible items in a similar category.

Amazon provides this example on its website: If a Prime member buys a shampoo sample for $2, the member will receive a $2 credit that can be used toward a future shampoo purchase.
