Free Case of Kids Squeezable Applesauce and More! #freebies #kids

Join Me at Survey Spot!

I told you guys before about how I maximize my earnings with survey sites – As I go through my email each day, I quickly move every survey invite into a special email folder. Then, once a day I try to take from 30 minutes to 1 hour to go through it, and fill out as many surveys as I can. Many I don’t qualify for – but there are tons that I do! And, my very favorite thing is getting FREE products to test – Like I just qualified for today at Survey Spot! We’re going to get a case of totally free squeezable kids applesauce packages to test out in our home – AND get paid for giving our opinion on it! This happens several times a week here. Super cool, right?

Don’t be the only one missing out on this….

MySurvey Free Product TestDo survey sites really work?… There are a few reasons why I LOVE survey sites. I am on an incredibly tight budget – and the free gift cards, cash, and rewards that I earn from filling out quick surveys make a BIG difference in our life. These rewards help me do pretty much all of my Christmas shopping, which is amazing.

I also love the chance to do in-home product testing! So cool. Most of these sites will send you out FREE Full Size products, and you try them out with your family, then give your opinions. Then, they PAY you for sharing your thoughts about the FREE stuff they sent you. How can you not love that?

Don’t Miss Out!

Don’t be the only one missing out on all of this good stuff! As you can see from the pic’s here, these companies really are legit, and you really do get free stuff. Every site listed on this page is one that I use myself, and have gotten rewards from.

You can see that my recent tests have included a new natural teething gel for baby, Bounty Paper Towels, Cover Girl Mascara, Brand Name Dog Foods, and Salad Dressing. I’ve also done several diaper tests in the past month. I’m super excited for the new line of Pantene products that are coming soon too….. And I DO NOT want you guys to miss out on stuff like this!

Tips Coming Soon….

I’ll be sharing a post in a few days about how to get the most out of these types of sites when you don’t have a lot of time – so stay tuned for my best tips.

Until Then…

Check out this huge list of my trusted survey sites, and sign up for as many as you can. The more you sign up with, the more chances you’ll get for free stuff. You only do the surveys you have time for- just delete ’em if you’re busy! All of these sites are ones that I have used, earned at least one reward from, and that I can recommend confidently to you. There are a few of them that are referral links, and I earn a few cents when you’re join me – you’ll get links like that to share with your friends too, once you sign up. It’s not big bucks, but it does add to your earnings when you share your favorites with others, and help them learn how to use them too!

  • MySurvey – Take Surveys, Get FREE Products to try out, and Earn amazing Rewards!! {See the Cover Girl Mascara I got in the pic? Super cool.}

  • SwagBucks – the easiest way to earn free stuff on the web! Redeem for my favorite, Amazon gift cards, or even PayPal cash!
  • Ipsos I-Say Young Adults Survey – Only for young adults, which means ages 18-30. That means I am now an “old” adult, since I’m over 30. No fair.
