How to Get Paid to Test Products at Home?
Paid Product Tester at Home
For 9 years, I've been testing and reviewing new products for cash and getting more free merchandise to keep at home. This has been a way to help me make extra money and also learn about the next big thing that companies are about to introduce on the market. I test about 5 or more different full size products a month.
A lot of people don't realize that Big Name Brand Companies are paying people to test their stuff and give their reviews about them so that's why I've created this article.
Product testing is always free to consumers and your information is never sold. It's fun being able to test stuff that are not yet in stores. It's like getting the exclusive first look on up and coming new products!

How Does Paid Product Testing Work?
How Can You Earn Money?
Do you ever wonder how companies come up with ideas on items that we use today or improve current products that are in stores?
Companies look for everyday people like yourself to test their stuff and give your reviews about it and they're willing to pay you for your time and opinions.
When you qualify for a product test, the advertiser will send to your home a product of theirs to test for a certain amount of time and write down each day how you like or dislike it and if there is any changes that needs to be made.
Sometimes you may receive a product you've already use in your home, so the company would like for you to stop using it for the time being and use the product test they've sent you in the mail.
Within a couple of weeks, the company will send you an email with a survey questionnaire you have to answer about the product you've tested. The survey can be a bit repetitive but do know your making a difference by voicing your opinions about the product because your letting the advertiser know if you liked their stuff or not and if they needed to make changes or just drop the product idea all together.
Having consumers test their products helps let the advertisers know if the product would sell in stores. If companies just put out a product in stores without getting opinions from consumers can be risky because the product might not sell and the company would've wasted their time and money.
Incentives for the stuff you've tested at home varies. Payments can be about $5-$100 depending on what product you test and how long the product test trial is.
I remember testing a website for HBO in beta format and they paid me $100 for testing their website for about a month. I was able to watch free movies on the internet and on the go free. It was very fun to give my opinions about their new project they were doing and also getting a reward for it!

How Can I Qualify?
Companies are looking for certain types of people to test their products, for example, lets say a company has created a new fruit juice product and wanted to get consumers opinions about; if you do not drink fruit juice you more than likely will not qualify for the product test.
To see if you'll qualify for their product test, the advertising company will first send you a screener to fill out. Once the screener is complete, it'll tell you if you've qualified for the product test or not. If you've qualified, you'll be asked for your name, address, phone number, and email so they'll know where to mail your product test. Remember that advertisers only send product test to real addresses, not P.O. Boxes.

Join a Paid Medical Trial Study
Another Way to Make Money for Free
Another way to make money for free is to have different products tested on you in a hospital setting. These types of studies can pay you thousands of dollars!
A medical trial studies are done with volunteer patients with certain conditions to find out whether a new drug will be safe, effective, and treat the patients current condition.
Now doing these types of studies is at your own risk and the health care provider will give you a consent form for you to fill out.
- You'll play an active role in health care.
- You'll gain access to new research treatments before they're available.
- You'll get expert medical care at leading health care facilities during the trial.
- You'll be helping others by contributing to medical research.
There are risks to medical trials.
- There may be unpleasant, serious or even life-threatening side effects with the experimental treatment.
- The treatment may not be effective for the participant.
- The trial may require more of your time and attention, including trips to the study site, more treatments, and hospital stays.
