Trying new products can be fun, however sometimes your budget doesn’t leave you much room to do so. Or trying out a new product and discovering it is a dud, leaving you regretting that you wasted your hard-earned money on buying it. Sign up for product testing Australia! Receive a free sample or full-size product to try, usually in exchange for your honest feedback, and occasionally sharing in a post on social media.
Social Soup – requires a download of the app to your phone to join and participate in product campaigns. Campaigns also generally require you to share photos to social media.
Home Tester Club – sign up as a member to the site, register your interest in testing products when they are available and then share your review on the site.
Bunch – you’ll need to be a member of Everyday Rewards to participate. Register with Bunch, and when free samples are available, select a sample. The sample will be loaded to your Everyday Rewards card. You then head in-store to grab the product, and scan your rewards card at the register in-store to redeem it for free. After trying the product, share your review on Bunch.
Flybuys – occasionally you will receive offers of free products. Sign up to Flybuys, and then wait for a email to be sent regarding a free sample being available. Click on the link in the email to activate the offer, and it will be loaded onto your Flybuys card. You then scan your Flybuys card at the register in-store at Coles to receive the product for free. Samples are not all that regular, but free is free, right?
Mums Say – run by Kidspot, sign up as a member to participate in exclusive product trials.
Taste Tester – sign up as a member of the site and opt into sampling in your profile. Emails will be sent to you when samples are available to register your interest.
Mouths of Mums – join up as a member, apply for product trials as they become available, and then leave your review. I’ve seen trials for everything from groceries to holiday resorts!
Black Box – receive a free box of full-sized products for you to try, and then fill out a product review survey after testing the products. Currently only available to NSW, ACT and VIC residents.
In addition to the above sites, I also occasionally receive free products to trial plus an incentive payment (anywhere from $10 to $100) in exchange for my opinion and feedback by participating in online surveys and market research sessions.
And don’t forget about free samples! You can find lots of free samples at:
Word of warning – there are some dodgy and fake companies and sites out there. You should never pay to sign up! These are all the current companies and sites I use personally.
