Product testing is a fantastic way to save money by bagging a few freebies.
It also gives you the chance to try products you might not have considered before without having to spend any money.
Since I’ve been product testing, I’ve had free nappies, baby products, food, wine and even makeup!
Here’s a list of my top product testing sites:
Super Savvy Me is a good site for any money saver. They regularly have printable coupons and run loads of competitions. Their Savvy Circle is a product testing community for P&G products.
If you’re accepted for a campaign, you’ll be sent free products and you just need to leave reviews and complete surveys on their site. Last year I got a load of Pampers nappies to test out (44 if I remember rightly) plus some to pass on to friends and a little tote bag!
I’ve already been accepted into my first programme and I’ve only been signed up to BzzAgent for a few weeks. I received my free Johnson’s baby bath this morning. All we have to do is use it and review it…simple!
Mothercare often run campaigns for product testers. You just need to sign up to their baby club to take part. They offer everything from digital thermometers to prams and car seats. I’ve never been lucky enough to get on one of their programmes but it’s worth applying as it only takes a minute to do so. Fingers crossed I’ll get to take part in one of their campaigns soon!
This is a survey website as well as offering product testing. Most of the campaigns are for makeup, but I find it can be quite hard to get accepted. Even though I’ve applied for LOADS of them, I’ve only ever been accepted on to one. I’ve read that answering surveys means you’re more likely to get programme invites, but I’m not sure how true that is!
Things to be aware of:
- If it sounds too good to be true it probably is! We’ve all seen the bogus ads online offering free iPads or laptops, all you have to do is provide ALL your information and bank details. SCAM!
- If you’re unsure if a site is legit, do a quick Google search and look for reviews. You’ll soon see if it has a bad reputation.
