I have been fortunate to be part of some awesome communities, that allow me to receive free samples, full size items, coupons, amazon discounts, and many chances to enter some great contests. I am going to share the sites that I have found most advantageous....
Influenster is a product discovery platform and review site that lets members compare products and read many reviews on an item, so they can make informed purchases. They have -VoxBox campaigns where members receive complementary full- size products to test and review. You can join an interactive twitter chat that does include celebrities and in- the- know experts. Lots of contests and special discounts. All they ask for, in return is that you share your opinions and reviews with friends on social media. Every one has a total reach score, the higher your score the more likely you are to get invites into campaigns.
BuzzAgent lets you try new products, then brag about them to your friends. This site does require filling out more surveys than most. Right now I have 2 active campaigns going with them. They use demographics to decide who to invite to their campaigns, then you are offered to accept or decline... They send out BuzzKits.
Another community where you are given missions, to try a product for free. They ask you to share your opinions and reviews with friends and family...other consumers like you. You will need to connect your social networking sites...
Product Report Card actually pays out, to you via paypal. I take a lot of surveys on this site, some you don't qualify for, you still get paid a small amount. You can register product you own, and then fill out a required report on them, the pay varies for each report. I have only been a member of this site for a few months, and I have received several items to test in home... My latest assignment was testing a new type of condom. :0) It was interesting. They are not just sending you samples, you are actually on a test panel for a product that are not on the market yet.
Crowdtap rewards you for your opinions and connects you with top brands... I want to say, I do receive at least 3 gift cards a month from this site. It is fun, but can be time consuming!!! There are so many ways you can earn points in the community. There are some great brands on here that offer free merchandise and products to sample. A brands working with crowdtap are- Neutrogena- Aveeno- Verizon- Amazon and Target....there are many more.
Pinchme is a sample only site, and the samples you are given access to are based on demographics. ( For example, they are not going to offer a person with no children, a baby product.) Samples are usually released on a Tuesday, once a month. You get from 3-7 samples to add to your cart, they ship them to you for free, of course they want you to answer a little questionnaire about each item. I have definitely tried things and ended up purchasing them.
This one does require an Amazon Prime account, seriously it is 2015, you all should have one. The deals are sent directly to your email, at heavily discounted prices, some are even free. Free shipping with the Prime account, you click the link in the email and you are given a code for that item. The code is only good for about 4 hours, but the products are usually gone within the first hour...you have to act fast! All they ask, is that you leave reviews after testing the items.
Tomoson is a blogger influencer only site, you must already have an established blog. You can connect with businesses, applying to test their products, and sometimes running giveaways for them. In return you are given tasks to complete, inside of a specific time frame, most have to be completed within 35 days. It can get a little busy, when you are sent about 10 products to test and review, at one time...
I have signed up for so many blogging, reviewing and sampling sites!!! I want to just throw one out there, that I have had absolutely no success at- Toluna... I get bombarded with emails from them, that lead to no where! I have taken a trillion surveys and not one single time, qualified for anything. Its a big waste of time.
If you are not signed up with any of these guys, you should be- It is all free, for now!! XOXO- Leighanna
