Prince of Peace – Original Ginger Honey Crystals
This pack of Ginger tea came with 6, yes SIX packs of the tea crystals! I shared them with my coworkers since we are all fans of tea and it was a fun experience trying them.  Be warned,  it is VERY VERY strong of ginger. Not bad,  but I wouldn’t say great.  It was better when i added it to liptpn tea bags than on its own. I hear ginger is amazing for colds though so this is great too have handy.

Black Forest Organic –  Gummy Bears
To be completely honest,  my kids and husband tore through these before o even got to try them,  so I assume they were good 😁. Hey… they’re gummy bears! (but healthier)..

I wasn’t really a fan of how thick this was… similar to a milk consistency. It is protein though,  so i guess it’s gotta have some substance to it.   Maybe I was just caught off guard since I opened and chuffed it though lol… The flavor wasn’t bad and I would try it again if i saw it at the store.

Isn’t this little bottle the cutest? My grandmother always used to warm maple syrup in the microwave for my brother and I when we would sleep over her house. This brought back so many memories and I LOVE everything about it including the bottle.

BetterThanCoffee – Energy Bars
This was another item I brought to work for a snack but wound up sharing it because everyone was so interested.  I actually really liked it although it was bitter from the dark chocolate. I liked the texture and I feel like it did give me a little boost.  Not everyone was a fan,  but i want more!

The Top 5 Free Stuff Sites

I know, you have signed up for free stuff on those sites that promise to send you all these goodies, all they need is your email and your home address and maybe a short survey of what you like, and then none of the free stuff comes. But you get tons of “unsolicited” emails an mail to your home instead because they sold your information for their own benefit, and you got nothing. That’s because nothing in this world is free. I am sure you’ve heard this before. Well, luckily, there ARE legit sites where you can get FREE stuff, for a slight trade off. They require some feedback from you so that they can share the feedback with potential customers since most of these items are hot off the press, and not yet in stores. There is one catch.If you think you can just reap the benefits of the free stuff and not do any of the work, your mistaken. You’ll forfeit being able to get any free items in the future, and that’s not fun!

20161030_200123

Here are my Top 5 favorite FREE Stuff sites that are legit, in no particular order;

images.png

Smiley360: Yes, the name is quite odd. I am still not sure what it means or how they came up with it but I have been a member of “Smiley” (that’s what we call it in the streets lol – j/k) for over 2 years now. You fill out some short surveys, and if you qualify for the mission, you get the item for free to try. They require you to successfully complete the mission by getting a certain amount of points. The points add up, I have over 2200 points right now, but I am still unsure of what they actually are used for. Keep in mind, you will need to share your feedback on your social media, usually Facebook, Twitter, and the Smiley360 online community. All of the items they give are full size items and I have never been disappointed. Check out some cute stuff we got here.

BzzAgent: This site is a little more in depth when it comes to surveys. You’ll start with the initial 10-20 surveys of getting to know you, what you like and dislike, etc. You have to answer them accurately if you want to get stuff in the future you’ll actually like. You need to finish all of these initial surveys to get any campaigns. For BzzAgent, they want you to spread the Buzz. The typical follow up surveys include sharing on social media, in the BzzAgent community, and then the answers are moderated and either denied, in which you’ll need to rewrite it, or approved at various levels “Good, Great, Amazing” in which you’re awarded “MyPoints” which they’re affiliated with. This is an added perk because the Mypoints add up and you can redeem them on that site for gift cards which I have done. BzzAgent seems to have ups and downs with how many campaigns they have at any given time. I’ve qualified for as many as 3 at a time, to not getting anything but surveys for a few months. My issue is that I do forget to go follow up and complete any added surveys because unlike some of the other sites, they do not email you to let you know there are surveys waiting. All items are full size and usually it’ll be a coupon to go and get the item for free at a store. I have also won a $50 gift card from BzzAgent in the past! Check out some stuff I’ve gotten here.

 

unnamed

Influenster: The name speaks for itself. They give you free stuff based on your ability to be an “influencer”. When you sign up, they’ll ask you to add your social media accounts, blogs, or any other accounts like Google+ and it’ll calculate your total reach. Mine is currently at a little over 7K and it has fluctuated from time to time, to as high as over 12k and I am not really sure why. If you have enough reach, this site is definitely one of the best. They usually have things known as a “VoxBox”. It’s a fun little box that has a variety of items in it, some full size and some sample size but all great. The best part it, if you don’t look into it ahead of time, you’ll have a fun surprise box to open when it shows up to your door. The other great thing about Influenster is that it doesn’t stop there. For each voxbox you’re a part of, you’ll have an opportunity to complete tasks on the items you loved to get a gift set of even more items from the same company. I have scored quite a few of these prizes and it’s so great to be recognized from the brands. Most prize sets are valued over $40. My last voxbox was Makeup Forever HD in my exact shade – a concealer stick and foundation, both in full size. These 2 items alone are over a $100 value, and I have a chance to win additional items from Makeup Forever by completing more tasks. You can check out some of my influenster items here and here.

 

crowdtap_416x416

Crowdtap: If you don’t mind getting tons of emails, then this is for you! As the name suggests, they’re tapping into the consumer database to get information on what works and what doesn’t. I personally get too many emails to keep track of, and I skip a bunch on a daily basis. I don’t mind getting them, but they get lost among the rest of the junk in my inbox. Crowtap used to focus on writing content and reviewing other member content to get gift cards, usually $5 each or up to $100. This was great and I won a few Amazon gift cards that way. Recently, they changed it up, and it’s more survey and mission based like the other sites. They do however still offer many ways to win gift cards if you’re up to taking a ton of surveys. I like to do it on my down time and it’s fun when they announce the monthly money winners, but again, I do forget a lot. The missions often supply full size products to try. Recently I’ve gotten Loreal shampoo/conditioner sets and Jiffy Cinnamon Peanut butter. These are things that will get used up in my house, and that is what I love about Crowdtap. It is usually consumables rather then useless stuff that’ll just linger around my house. I don’t get accepted into missions with them often since I forget about it, so I am happy when I do get chosen. Like the others, it is imperative that you complete the follow up steps necessary to “close” out whatever they need in return for sending you these items or you will get flagged and banned.

 

pinch

PinchMe: PinchMe by far is the most simple site, with the least amount of effort needed up front, and after the fact, but it’s time sensitive. I used to have an alarm on my phone set to go off every Tuesday at 12 that said “Pinch Me” and if anyone else every saw it pop up, they’d probably be like “what the heck?!” When I got my new phone about 6 months ago, it didn’t transfer over and to be honest, I completely forgot about the site. I used to enjoy getting the little teal box in the mail, and the thrill of being one of the first inline on the site to get the best samples. The only issue is, they’re just that… samples. They aren’t full size like the rest although once in a blue moon you will score something worth while and potentially full size. They’ve also become a little to “adsy” for me and the constant ads in your face is a turn off for sure. I am not sure if they’ve stepped their game up at all, but I’ll be checking it out again myself.

They great part is, these are all legitimate sites that I have personally been a part of for the past 2+ years. You can join 1, or join em’ all. Let me know if you have any feedback on any of these sites!
