How to Get Paid to Test and Review New Products at Home3:00 AM
Updated: December 2016
Hey everyone! Did you know that you can become a product tester for Top Brands and get paid to test and review their products? Yep, you can and all for free! Scroll down to get started!
I've been testing products for money for the past 8 years and love doing it! I get about 4 to 5 full size products and sample products to test a month. I'm getting the first exclusive look at up and coming products not yet on the market.
The reason for product testing is that Top Brands would like to know what consumers think about newest products they're developing to be sent to stores, but before they do that they need your opinions. This way, it'll save them time and money if the product doesn't do well.
First, you'll need to sign up with a company that offers product testing at home. Once you do this the company will send you emails to fill out screeners to see if you'll qualify for their current product test. When you fill out their screener survey, they'll let you know at the end if you qualify or not. For example, let say the company is looking for people to test out their beauty product, if you don't use beauty products then you won't qualify, if you do then you'll qualify for the testing.
Once you get the approval to test, the company will ask for your address to send you the product to test for a week or two. Then they'll follow up with you with an email asking questions about the product you've tested. When you're done, you get paid! WOO HOO!

How Much Can You Make Being a Product Tester?
What's great you get to keep the product you've tested!!! So, keep product, and get paid! It's a win-win!!!!
How much you get paid varies. I've been paid anywhere from $3-$150. There was a time I tested a website in beta format for HBO (now called HBO-GO) and they paid me $100 for doing it! Very easy money!
