Free stuff websites?

loveme loveme
Does anyone know of any good websites that give you free products to review or where you can collect points to receive products? Kind of like edenfantasys, but doesn't necessarily have to be sex toys. I would really appreciate it, thanks.

Not exactly, but upon signing up for countless paid subscription boxes and reviewing them monthly on my personal blog, I've earned free boxes from points/referrals and from companies contacting me to write reviews in exchange for free boxes. The catch here is that you do actually have to pay for a good deal of them before free ever really comes into play.

This is one I am a member of & is legit: link.

You answer online surveys & earn points or get entries into sweepstakes where the prize is lots of points. The points are then redeemed for rewards such as gift certificates. Why I like this one over the other available programs I've done:
--they have better rewards available, not just a bunch of overpriced stuff, such as magazine subscriptions that you can get cheaper elsewhere. There is a roughly equivalent point to penny exchange rate, so here your 1000 points is worth $10, not $5
--the prizes are appropriately priced, not overinflated. I was so tired of other places where I'd earn $100 & when I used it, I could only get a $50 gift card to iTunes or something.
--Good rewards choices! I hated not having good choices. I don't want to spend my credits for a "money off" discount on something, for example, using my $100 for $25 off a $75 purchase at a clothing store! This place has Amazon, Applebee's, Macy's, CVS & PayPal reward options for example.
--they don't have rip off surveys! I was so angry with other sites whose survey would collect all sorts of useful info before telling you that you didn't qualify to finish the survey. So instead of full points, you'd get the token offer, say 25 cents, (@mysurvey, you get a sweepstakes entry). But what frosted me was that company paying for the survey was given all this info you already answered supposedly to determine eligibility, but it was still commercially helpful to them. Basically, they got your opinions for a steal instead of having to pay the full amount.

I saw some members have a bunch of these types of websites listed in their favorites list in their profile page. Hopefully, they will answer your discussion!

I did e-rewards surveys for about a month, but they are invasive, too long and once I got enough $$ I realized the gift choices were not that great, so I stopped doing them. The amount of questions (repeats) were insane and infuriating. Never again.

I love swagbucks. You earn points for searches (I use it instead of google) and can turn points in for gift cards. One year I got enough gift cards for a free Kindle (this was back when they were more expensive.) If anyone wants to join, I'd love for you to PM me for my referral code so I could earn more points. (I can earn equal to the first 1000 points you earn, which is a little over two $5 Amazon certificates, if you join through my referral.)

Sorry about that, I don't know what happened as it converts it automatically. Let's try it this way so it won't convert it to the "link": mysurvey dot com

@Trysexual, I am a member of e-Rewards & that is the one I got most of my bad examples from in my first comment. I completely agree with you! BTW, they are now an invitation only site, how pretentious! Their latest trick is where you answer plenty of useful info on the survey, (beyond demographical info), and then they tell you that you don't qualify for various reasons, to finish the rest for the full reward amount. In the meantime, the company has all this useful info. I really suspect that they got the info they wanted & had no intention of paying out the full amount to most of the respondents.

I also now avoid iThink.

Do you have to give out personal info, like your social security number, credit or bank card number?

Nope! I would NEVER do that. However, your real name, age, address & an email are required.

What they have are questionnaires that ask you about consumer stuff such as what electronics you own, etc. They are almost all multiple choice & sometimes you can choose "other" & fill in the box. You get credit in the form of sweepstakes entries for filling out the questionnaires & there is almost always a box for Don't Know/ Not Applicable/Prefer Not To Answer. These questionnaires help them send you only those opportunities that you will be able to qualify for. The surveys that you take also have options for not answering what you don't want. What I do, is participate in every one they select for me & then if I don't like it, I choose the prefer not to answer boxes, if that's the case. You may be told that they don't need you to compete the rest of the survey, but you will still get the sweeps entry for your time. (The sweeps are for a bunch of points to be put into your account, just like the points here.) Had I just decided I didn't want to do the survey, I wouldn't have received anything. It's up to you, you never have to answer anything you don't want, but filling out the questionnaires they have for classification purposes, helps them send you surveys that are more relevant to you!

This all appies to mysurvey dot com.

Do you get a lot of phone calls? My mother did a survey online once and her phone rings off the hook with robo calls. In fact, during the presidential election, they quit calling and when everyone else was complaining of unsolicited phone calls, she was enjoying that there weren't as many!

I too also do e-rewards. I am starting to get sick of them. They have came in handy a couple of times but lately it is a pain or I stop in the middle of a survey. I think you are right about the info they need as well so you only get credited partial.

I do boxes for this site called Influester.com. I have gotten a couple and some brand challenges. I have not received any lately but new members have a more likely chance to get them lately. They send out some decent examples.

They have you do video, blog and reviews on their site if you don't want to do any of them. They have challenges so you can qualify for other things as well. I like these guys a lot. Just wish I could get another box sometime soon.

If you so happen to come across one of these websites and they ask for that type of personal info, please, turn and run the other way! No legitimate website is going to ask for that info.. I mean websites for sweepstakes, surveys, points for free stuff, etc., should not ask for this information. Of course if it's a website where you have to purchase something with your own money, then I'd understand them asking for your credit/ bank card number. But other than that, do not give out that information.

On some they do ask for a phone number. For this reason, I set up an account on a phone app like textfree so I could give that number instead of my real number, just to be safe. Gotta love technology these days lol.

Also, if anyone enjoys doing sweepstakes, or giveaways, here is a great site. They have lists of all kinds of giveaways, almost anything you can think of. But please, if you are new at it, do a little research first. I heard that whatever you win, is then taken out of your taxes. Not exactly sure how it works. But here is the website: online-sweepstakes dot com.

NO, I don't do any phone surveys & all the ones I do are online so I can pick & choose at my convenience. But, I don't give my phone numbers out. They did ask me if I wanted to opt in for text message reviews & I declined. I don't believe I was ever even asked for my phone number at the general sign up . I just say I don't have one if there's ever a problem.

I'm snooping around the Swagbucks website right now.

I've earned over a hundred dollars in the past couple of months here (and that is my referral link, so if you do sign up, I'd definitely be appreciative if it were through that link ). If you can't click the referral link, my username's "chesao" and once you start sign up, there's a spot where you can just type that in once you go to instagc .com, put in your information and say that you found out about the site through a friend. Some of the offers do require that you use your name and address - there are more invasive offers, like applying for credit cards through legitimate credit card companies, but those are completely and utterly optional. Picking up an online number here saves you from having to enter your home number at any time unless the offer specifies that you must speak to a representative.

My favorite part is that the points that you earn are equivalent to to cents in any gift card denomination, so you don't have to guess at what you're going to be able to get because sometimes a $5 gift card costs 450 points and sometimes it costs 700. The cashout minimum is $1, so as soon as you hit a hundred points, you can instantly get a $1 Amazon card or something (not all gift cards are available in all denominations). There are over 50 different kinds of gift cards (including a prepaid AmEx), and if none of them appeal to you, you can ask for a check. The check comes in the mail, so it not instant, like all of the gift cards, but it's good for those who need money to pay bills and such.

Yes, this is true. I've won a couple big prizes before, and you will be asked for your social security number on those so you need to know it's legit when you win (hint -- if you didn't enter it, you can't win!). The first time I won something I had a friend look over the paperwork to make sure it was okay. Freaked me out they wanted my social security number.

Actually, say you win $1,000 in cash, the company gives you all $1,000 at the time you receive your prize and you have to report it on your taxes when they send you a 1099 at tax time.

Also, if anyone joins swagbucks, I'd love to give you my referral. I just go to a very conservative church and my username on swagbucks is what I use everywhere online and afraid someone might come across it if they would search my nickname and see it posted on the forum of a sex toy site. I know it sounds paranoid, but I have seen things happen that were lesser scandals in church.

I really don't get the point of "winning a prize" when you are technically paying for it. It doesn't make sense to me.

This website has some that do not require that kind of info. I won something and had used a different last name. Even though it was something small (sample bottles of shampoo and conditioner). But that's just an example.

If you win something $600 and over and you want to accept the prize you'll have to give the company your social security number. I've used that website for years and have won some nice stuff (cash, even a couple trips.) It's standard because the government wants their part of your income taxes.
