If you like to try out new beauty products or household items, try BzzAgent or Influenster (app for iOS or Android devices.) Sign-up for BzzAgent and you can get free products from brands like L’Oréal, Olay and Swiffer. With Influenster, you answer some questions about yourself, then you’ll receive a box full of samples catered to you. Again, all they want from you is feedback.

Fitness enthusiast, gym rats, yogis, cyclists and anyone who likes to break a sweat should consider becoming a tester for Reebok, Nike, Adidas or Brooks. For each, you’ll be asked to fill out a profile and they’ll let you know if you qualify. If you’ve been accepted, you’ll test out shoes and other workout gear. Then, you just let them know what you think of the different products.

Parents want the best for their children and many companies want to help you find what works for your little ones without the hassle of looking in the stores. Parent Tested Parent Approved and Mom-Select are just two examples. You sign up and both will reach out to you when they have products, toys and even strollers you can test out and possibly keep. The only cost to you is the time it takes to type up a review.
