Find Ways Not to Pay for Things
Oddly enough you can find a variety of ways to not pay for things you need or want. One of the ways is reviewing products. Sometimes for pay and product, but more often just for the product.
She Speaks is a great website to do product reviews for. You can register on their website. Then if you match up with one of their current product promotions they will send you a survey to see if you qualify and to see if you are interested in reviewing it. If selected you receive the product in a few weeks. After trying it you have to fill out a survey or write a review. Sometimes both.
The most recent review I did was for a credit card. I did not have to apply or have the card already. All I had to do was review the card on the website and then give feedback. The reward was a 1-year magazine subscription. I have only gotten picked for a few reviews, but still, it’s free stuff when I do.
BuzzAgent is another company that will send you products in exchange for a review.
