Your going to love this story. For several years my wife & oldest daughter have registered with two serveying companies sampling products & getting paid very well for it.

A few weeks ago on a whim I registered & got excepted to try three new barbecue sandwiches for 45 minutes for $45. They were good too.
Last week I did it again & got excepted to try out an air freshner for 20 minutes a day for two weeks & answer a few questions on line. This pays $250. Who hoo extra money for my garage make over.

They have programs called secret shoppers where you get paid to go to certain stores, buy certain things and fill out reports on the store and the customer service. My ex used to do it.

And just how do I get on this gravy train?? I don't mind shopping, like trying new things, and don't seem to have any trouble voicing an opinion---- I should be a natural at this, lol.

I got a buddy who does those out of the Tricounty area.

I have signed up for a few, but they are always during my work days so can't do them.

 

Getting paid to eat, can't beat that.

Be careful with the secret shopper. I have a buddy who did it and after a couple of months he got asked to use and rate Walmart money transfer system. They sent him a certified check for $1200 and told him to keep 200 and sent them the rest. He did it and got a notice from his bank 2 days later that the check was bogus. He was out $1200 + fees.

My wife does this thing where she gets free products and does surveys.  She has gotten a lot of free baby stuff, and she gets paid some for it to.  Not a lot but it's free stuff.

The only one I have done LD is locally here in Cincinnati called Wolf Study Group.

The one my wife & daughter does is from Procter & Gamble.

I would google Marketing Research in your hometown & you should come up with something to try. Like I mentioned all I done was registered & wait. They normally send you an email when somethig comes up of your interest. Good luck! $$$$$$$
