If you are new to the blog or new to couponing, I wanted to let you know about 2 great FREE programs! With BzzAgent, I currently have the following campaigns: Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut cereal (pictured above), and Neutrogena Hand Cream. That basically means I will be trying all those products for FREE, and as you can see above, they usually send coupons too! With Smiley360, I am new and just getting started!
BzzAgent is an awesome site that allows you to try products for FREE! Every month they will have different missions available with free items to try. They will email select BzzAgent members to try out the products and if you are selected you can chose to accept the mission or decline it. If you accept the mission, you will be mailed a product or a coupon for a free product so you can go and get it yourself (usually freezer type items). All they ask in return, is you let them know how you like (or didn’t like) the product and how many people you told about the product! That’s it!
To get started, head over here and sign up. Once you have signed up, click on the survey tab. You should have quite a few surveys to take (will probably take 20-30 minutes to complete them all). You will want to complete the surveys because this is how BzzAgent will match you to a product. Once you have completed or surveys, head over to the “my account” section. You will want to connect your Facebook, Twitter and My Points account. You can also connect any grocery cards you may have (this may help you get special missions that are just for certain grocery stores). If you are not a member of My Points, make sure to head over here and sign up. BzzAgent rewards you with My Points points for the surveys you complete. You can then turn those points into free gift cards, products etc.
The higher your BzzAgent score, the better your chance of receiving an offer is. You can check your score at anytime under “My account”. You can keep your score high by writing good reviews, talking to a lot of people about the product and completing the surveys.
Smiley360 is a lot like BzzAgent. They basically select certain members to try products for free! With Smiley360 you earn “Smileys” by sharing your mission on Facebook and Twitter, writing a product review, and talking to more people about the product. The more smileys you have, the more likely you are to be selected for another mission. You will want to make sure to complete your profile after signing up so they can learn a little about you and the missions you may be good for! Also make sure to connect your account to your Facebook and Twitter so you can earn smileys for sharing your mission.
