Sam's Club "Taste of Sams" this weekend -- an ethical question

Firegoat | Nov 14, 201105:08 AM

So I received the email and flyer for the Taste of Sams event this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Sam's Club. (LIke a Costco for those of you that don't have them). Basically a ton of free food samples offered from 11 to 6 on those days, with the offerings varying by day and time of day. I don't think I could face the crowds on Saturday or Sunday, but I am off on Friday.

I've looked through the flyer, and many of the offerings seem interesting and/or perhaps something I haven't tried before. However, I am not hosting Thanksgiving or Christmas this year, so I honestly have no expectation that I will be buying much if anything that is being offered in this promotion. But then again, maybe I'll try something so cool that I'll love it and must buy it. I know this is possible, but probably isn't my intention.

Is it wrong to go and sample during this event knowing that I really don't have that much interest in purchasing anything? I kind of feel dirty just thinking about doing it..... yet I'm still thinking about doing it.
