Smiley 360 – Product Testing May 26, 2015

Filed under: Freebies,Product Testing — admin @ 10:18 am



This is the first time I’ve signed up for a product testing site. I figured I’ll give it a try. Here’s what their all about.

Smiley360 is an online community of influential consumers who try products and experiences for free and share their opinions with others. As a member, you will receive offers from the biggest brands and share your experience with that brand, as well as with friends, family, coworkers, neighbors and other consumers like you.

Our Story — Your Voice

Smiley360 launched in December 2009 with one purpose. We wanted there to be more communication between consumers and the brands that they buy. As consumers, wouldn’t it be great to get first access to new products and experiences, and to actually tell the brands what we think? And even better, wouldn’t it be great to know that they are actually listening?

That’s what we hope to achieve with Smiley360—to give regular people the chance to try new things and share their opinions with the world. Think of us as your link to the brands you consume every day. This is marketing for the modern world, and we all have a voice! Be Heard. Be Happy.

Why Join Smiley360?

Do you love to try new products and services? Have you ever tried a product and thought, “This would be so much better if…” As a Smiley member, you can provide this kind of feedback directly to the source, as well as share with the people in your life, both online and offline. Smiley members get inside and exclusive looks at new brands, new products, and new online content—how cool is that?

You should join Smiley if…

• You care about the products you consume in your daily life
• You want to give feedback directly to your favorite brands
• You believe that your opinion on products should be heard
• You like to try before you buy
• You want to be the person your friends turn to for advice on what products to buy

How Does It Work?

It’s as easy as 1… 2… 3…

1. Qualify to Try Products and Services (for free!)
Members qualify for Smiley Missions, which is what we call it when we send you something new to try. Missions are designed to match your lifestyle and interests, so you’ll receive experiences best suited for you. You only need to accept the Missions that interest you, so feel free to hit ’Decline’ if something doesn’t feel like the right fit.

2. Share Your Feedback with Friends, Fellow Smiley Members and the Companies Behind the Products
Smiley is all about having your voice heard, and we give you the tools to easily share your feedback. That’s how our site is designed. In today’s marketplace, brands want and need to know your opinion. Smiley members provide valuable feedback that collectively helps drive the market.

3. Earn Points and Badges to Improve Your Community Status
We know our members are social trendsetters, and we like to give you more things to talk about. For everything you do on your Mission, you will earn points and badges. We reward good sharers with more Missions, so the more you do, the higher your chances of being selected for even more opportunities.

Our Values

Free: because you’ll never have to pay a penny as a member
Authentic: because you only share your honest opinion, whether it’s positive or negative
Influence: because your friends listen to your recommendations
Power: because the customer makes the brand, not the other way around

Convinced? Complete the quick and easy sign up!

I actually just came across this new app yesterday. So far so good. It’s like Ibotta or Checkout 51. The one thing I do like it doesn’t request certain stores to redeem. Since I just started using it I don’t know to much about it. From what I’ve read you can earn cash and points. So give it a try and download the app. It’s compatible with droids and iphones.

Filed under: Coupons,Money — admin @ 11:12 am



I had joined this site back in 2007. It was ok but I decided to give it another try. It has improved. Here are some ways you can earn points to get gift cards.



You can earn doing surveys, printing coupons, internet searches, referring, shopping and playing games. How hard is that?



You can redeem with getting Gift Cards, good for holidays or birthdays. Get cash or even book travel.

If you don’t have an account go sign up here. Please use my link so I can receive credit.
