What Do You Have to Say about That?

I love getting great deals. Samples, coupons, subscription boxes that give you wayyyy more value for your $$. For instance, Birchbox consistently delivers $20-30 worth of products for $10. BeautyArmy lets you pick 6 high quality samples for $12/month, and if you don’t like the samples they’re offering that month, you can skip it. My most recent box of love is the FabFitFun VIP Box. Holy Moly! You get one every season, so four boxes/year, and for $49.95 (for spring) I got more than $175 worth of products. That’s my kind of a deal.

You know what I love even more? Getting things for free. Seriously. There are sites that will give you free products in return for sharing your opinion on social media. That’s it. Try, tweet, post a coupon, that’s it. A few FB friends might get annoyed, but let’s be real: Sharing info about great products is being a good friend. And they can always unfollow 🙂

I wanted to share a few of my favorites because people often ask me how I find these products:

BzzAgent is a great site that rewards you for taking surveys, trying products and sharing with your friends. I just joined a few months ago and have all ready gotten to try Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola–which is my new breakfast favorite, btw–and delicious new Special K Coffeehouse Breakfast protein shakes. After you try the FREE products, you talk about your experiences, share coupons and reviews with friends on social media and in person. Easy, right?

Smiley360 is one of my favorites. You take a quick survey to see if you’re a good candidate, try the products, and share through super easy tools on their site. You don’t even have to make up your own tweets! I have been fortunate to discover some amazing new products through Smiley360 “missions” including OxiClean Extreme Power Crystals™ Dishwasher Detergent, Centrum Flavor Burst multi-vitamin chews, Fiber Choice Fruity bites, Arm & Hammer Clump and Seal Cat litter, Bic Mark-It Permanent markers, my new favorite obsession: Nature’s Bounty® Hair, Skin, & Nail Gummies, and MORE. Honestly, that’s a lot of free stuff just for sharing my opinion, which is something I all ready love to do. For Free. Ask my husband and kids.

ExpoTV is a little bit different. If you love making vines, then this is for you. You can upload reviews of products you use and earn points. Or, when you are part of their Tryology program, they send you a product, you try it and upload a video review. While, I’m no celebrity spokesperson, I wrangle my favorite 13-year-old, a smartphone, and talk for 1-2 minutes about the products I’ve tested. And I’ve gotten to test some great products from: L’Oreal, AirWick, Crayola, Clear Care, and even some new products that aren’t on the market yet.

If you love a great deal, getting free stuff, and sharing your opinion, check these sites out! Questions? Ask away. I’ve got one for you: Where do you find your favorite deals?
