Product Test Paid Surveys - Fun and Lucrative

Posted on by

Product tests are another lucrative form of paid online surveys that not only pay you for using a product, but allow you to keep the extra product after the testing is over. Some of the items that are commonly sent for product tests are toilet paper, paper towels, frozen foods, cereal, breakfast bars, mixed nuts, powdered beverages, laundry detergent, laundry softener, dishwashing detergent, toothpaste, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and disposable/battery-operated razors. Most product tests pay you between $5 and $30, but some pay much more. Some of the more unusual product tests that I have seen include a $700 captioning phone for the deaf, which paid $30 and allowed me to keep the phone and $150 mystery shopping product test that required me to enter a cell phone store and pretend to be interested in buying a phone and phone service.

In most cases, the company will send you two different products, each labeled with a specific code, and ask you to test the first product first before trying the second. It is extremely important that you not only write down the code/s or not throw away the box, package or container that has the code written somewhere on it, but that you also not confuse the two products. After testing the first product for a week or so, you can put that one away for later use and move onto the second product. Usually, I have lots of both products left over after testing, especially lotions, shampoos and conditioners.

Companies are looking for an in-depth, honest, objective opinion concerning their products and the more attention you put into observing, analyzing and comparing the two products, the better they like it and the more likely you are to receive additional product tests from that company, Vague, obvious and indifferent opinions are not as useful. Some of the best survey sites for product tests are: MySurvey, Toluna, SurveySpot, IPSOS I-SAY, Valued Opinions, Pinecone Research, Mindfield Online, Global Opinion Panel/Synovate and 20/20 Research. My singular mystery shopping experience came through ShopTalk and I have yet to earn another dollar with them since November of last year. One last hint: if a survey appears to be a rather short one and asks about food allergies, then it’s a safe bet that it will be a product test.

    I always wondered who decided what products made it to store shelves. It is so exciting that my opinion could influence those decisions. This seems to be quite an opportunity. I look forward to helping. Hope to hear back soon. Laura
