There are a lot of ways to get free products to test out and keep. Most of the companies that offer opportunities to do this do not ask for anything in return apart from a written review, social media share, or simply sharing the product with your friends.
Below you'll find a big list of sites you can sign up with for product testing. If you want the max amount of opportunities, you should definitely sign up with more than one! None of these cost anything to join. However, getting products to test isn't always a guarantee since competition for various product offerings can be strong.
- Pinch Me – Read Review – Sign to up to receive free samples to try. What they have changes frequently and samples have been going fast, so you'll need to be quick. When you sign up, they send you a confirmation code via your mobile phone that you'll have to put in to get your account active.
- Daily Goodie Box – Very similar to PINCHme above. However, boxes are sporadic, not monthly. You could get as many as ten samples in a box, and some will be full-sized.
- BzzAgent – Read Review – I have experience with this one. I've tested Teddy Grahams and Ziploc microwave bags among other things.
- Homeschool.com – Testers are selected randomly, based on geography, age of children, etc. Not every family will be selected.
- Ripple Street – Sign up to do house parties with friends/family where brands send you their products for your entire group to try. This site was formerly known as House Party.
- Influenster – Read Review – Every month or so they release something called a “Vox Box” full of full-sized products. In exchange for receiving it (if you're lucky enough to be selected to get it), you have to review and share the products across social media.
- InStyle Trendsetters – You'll have insider opportunities to evaluate brand-new products, and even give us feedback about InStyle itself!
- Mom's Meet – You can become a “mom ambassador” for Mom's Meet. This is mostly testing green, all-natural products.
- BetaBound – BetaBound is a free service provided by Centercode that offers you a chance to participate in beta tests. . Members have tested products from Logitech, Dell, TomTom, Apple, T-Mobile, Polycom, Kodak, Yahoo!, and many other great companies.
- She Speaks – Read Review – I have tested a Sonicare electric toothrush and an Oreida potato masher for She Speaks. They are great!
