One of the most fun experiences I initially had making extra money online is by getting paid to try products.
In fact more than me, it is my wife who had a blast with these. Not so much because of the chore involved, or the few dollars she made from it, but rather because she was being offered products of all kinds she didn’t even know existed.
Similar to paid surveys and focus groups where you are paid for your opinions, there are market research companies you can sign up with to get paid to try products and services and provide your feedback.
There is also no cost to joining these companies. In fact, you are paid well for your feedback because your opinion shapes up the next product innovation out of a fortune 500 company.
Because you are the end consumer, your feedback is important for companies to incorporate in their next product idea. Therefore they are willing to pay for this feedback.
The best part is that you get to keep the product for free. Below is a list of just a handful of products I have been paid to try in the past. Not only was I paid good money to try these and provide my feedback, but I also got to keep these products.
Of all the companies that pay to test products, Vindale Research sticks out as the pioneer. They have the best paying offers and they also pay the most ($5) to refer someone else to the program. You can read my detailed review on Vindale here.
Another good one is CashCrate, a company that provides the best variety of surveys, offers and such. I have written exclusively about CashCrate in the past and how to get ahead quick with this program. You can read my detailed CashCrate review here, including a video that walks you through the program.
Let me reemphasize that although fun, joining these companies and completing various offers can be time consuming. Therefore it is important to understand what your spare time is worth to you, and what other alternatives you have for your time.
If these “get paid to” type programs are your cup of tea, Vindale and CashCrate are ones you definitely want to try out. Both these offer a lucrative way to earn extra cash on the side and are a perfect compliment to paid survey programs.
Have you gotten paid to try products? Any interesting freebies you ended up with? Or do you know anyone doing well with these get paid to programs?
