Most manufacturers will send you free samples if you simply ask for them. But remember, we all like free samples, so don't abuse of them, too much...

What ever you do, don't sell them... it's not only unethical, it will ruin it for everybody. Prototyping good, manufacturing bad.

All free samples, with paid shipping, sometimes overnighted from Singapore or some exotic place. I would recommend for students to order samples, but if you have a real job, making real money, and using them for personal projects, purchasing might be a better idea, as if too many people order samples... companies might stop being so generous. National used to be much better, but over the last 6 months, got much stricter on their sample programs... basically around the same time as the gainclone trend picked up. Coincidence? I don't think so. I see no reason why someone spending a couple of hundred to build a gainclone for themselves can't afford an extra $10 for a pair of lm3875 chips.

Also, I like to order samples of stuff I actually tend to use for prototyping. I also give away stuff to friends who have a need for it.
