I’ve been a member of an online community called BzzAgent for over two years now. It is one of my favorite ways to get new products to try – for free! And sometimes, like this week, I stumble upon an opportunity to even make a few bucks!
I received an invitation to join a BzzCampaign for Glade. I already use Glade products, so this was a great way to get some products that I would buy for myself anyway. Some BzzCampaigns will mail you the products that they want you to try, but for this one they just sent coupons to get the two new products for free. This was great because I could go to the store and pick out the scents I wanted to try. But when I got to the store, it got even better. The Oil Diffuser had a “Try Me Free” rebate on the box. Since rebates don’t care about coupons that are applied against your purchases, I can get the $8 rebate even though I didn’t pay for the product. Then when I checked out, a Catalina coupon printed for each of the two products. One was for $1 off a future purchase, and the other was for $2 off a future purchase. So if you add up the $8 rebate, and the $3 I will save next time I shop, that is $11 that Glade gave me for trying their new products for free! Pretty cool, huh?
If you’d like to try BzzAgent, here are some things you need to know. First, you will be asked to take some surveys. The more surveys you do, the more BzzCampaigns you will be invited to join. When you join a BzzCampaign, you will receive something for free. The only thing they ask is that you tell people what you think of the product you tried and share some great coupons, then come back and report your experience. If you didn’t like the product, they want you to say so. They are not bribing you to spread false information about these products, but rather giving you the opportunity to share your opinions whether good or bad. Your experience with BzzAgent may be different, but I was discouraged at first because my first two BzzCampaigns were kind of duds. But I accepted and participated anyway, and have been rewarded with awesome BzzCampaign invitations every since.
So what did I think of my free Glade products? Well, the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser I got is honestly not my favorite. I’m not fond of the scent I chose, but others may be better. The Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist that I chose smells absolutely yummy! I’ll definitely be buying that one again.
