I love free things and occasionally I get them. A few years ago my sister brought me into the world of Extreme Couponing where we would get grocery hauls like this for around $30.
couponing world opened meup to a whole world of online groups, surveys
and programs designed to get free stuff or earn money. While pretty
much all of that has come and gone for me, one site remained.
is an awesome, professional and legitimate site where you can get
products for free in return for your opinions and interactions with others. AND IT IS EASY.
1. Sign Up.
2. Take some surveys. I know not everyone likes to divulge too much
info about themselves on the internet or to marketing companies but
really I don’t have a problem with it. I don’t really care who knows
what brands of cat food i’ve purchased in the last six months or that I
wear eyeshadow and mascara every day but foundation only 1-2 times a
week. (Those are pretty much what the survey questions are like.)
3. Wait for a campaign invite. You can’t just sign up and get anything
you want. They will invite you to different campaigns depending on
what your survey answers are.
4. Join campaign and wait for your BzzKit. This is the HARDEST part
simply because you are waiting for your awesome free products. I’m in
this stage right now - you’ll see what my BzzKit contains as soon as I
5. Bust open the BzzKit and start Bzzing. This is where you use the
product your self and discuss/share it with
friends/Twitter/Facebook/your blog. Often BzzKit’s will contain coupons
to make it fun and easy to share with others.
6. Report Bzz. This is where you give feed back on the product and talk
about your social interacions and what other people thought about the
Easy as pie. NO, easy as free pie. (Which may or may not be coming in my next BzzKit) Probably not Gluten Free though :(
I’ve been a member I’ve received 5 lip products, eyeshadow and mascara, countless cleaning products (How
do they know I'm messy?), a scented candle, a free dinner at Boston
Market and I’ll be getting more soon. So yeah, I’m not loaded down in
free gear -but it’s just kind of a fun little hobby that has a few benefits.
