Product Testing: How to Get Free Stuff and Samples

Posted on 03/30/2010

Love trying new products, but hate gambling hard earned money on whether you’ll like them or not? Thankfully for you there are plenty of ways to get your hands on free stuff and samples. It’s all in the name of product testing.

Vocal Point - Finally, someone besides your mom wants to know your opinion on things. Become a member of Vocal Point (it’s free!) and you’ll find opportunities for trying out new products. In exchange for the samples you’ll be asked for your opinion and feedback. Try everything from cereal to shampoo.

House Party - Like to party? Then sign up at and you may get everything you need to throw one. Companies like Red Baron or Hasbro get people like you to throw parties, showcasing new products in the hopes that you’ll blog, tweet and talk about them. They’ll send you just about everything you need to throw a party from the food to the favors—all you have to do is supply the guests.

SheSpeaks - SheSpeaks is an online community of women sharing their opinions on just about everything. All members are entered into a database when they sign up to test various products, services and content. Once the company matches you with a product you’ll receive an invitation asking whether you’d like to try it. Agree and you should get your freebie in about three weeks. After you have some time to try it out you’ll receive a survey asking for your opinion.

RepNation - RepNation is another site looking for your opinion on products and brands. But rather than giving you free samples to try, they’ll reward you for sharing your opinion. You can either get cash rewards through your PayPal account, or you can earn prizes.

BzzAgent - Have you ever wanted to influence a brand? Now's your chance with BzzAgent. Signing up is free, and so are the product samples they’ll send you to try out. Companies benefit by getting people to talk about their products and you benefit because you get free stuff. Now that’s what I call a win win situation.
