Another guest post for the first Thrifty Thursday post for the month from Missy M from the USA.
I’m always on the lookout for ways to save money…but, I also want them to be legitimate. I don’t want to have to jump through hoops to save a few bucks, or worse, pay money to save money! I don’t mind doing a little work, but I don’t want to feel like I’m selling my soul.
One of the best places I’ve found is BzzAgent. Yes, you have to do a little work…you have to actually try the products that you’ve accepted as a campaign. Then you have to do at least some of the activities. The more you do, the better chances you have of getting future campaigns. I average 2-3 campaigns at a time. Some people don’t seem to hardly get any. The key to this, is write GOOD reviews! That doesn’t mean you have to say how awesome the product is. On the contrary, I’ve written some reviews that were anything but glowing. It means you have to write something of significance. Answer the questions they give you as a guide. Maybe make reference to the ingredients. Explain exactly why you liked or didn’t like the product, what you think they could do different, what made the product different, better, etc. Appeal to the people who might be reading your review, not just the company.
I make sure I get to the smiley face with each campaign. This way, I’ve participated enough for them. I don’t have Instagram, or twitter, so I’m limited to what I can participate in, but I can still do enough to make them happy without having to get them.
What do I get when I accept a campaign, you might be asking. Well, I either get coupons for full sized products for free, or I get the actual product typically in a full sized container. Sometimes I get free stuff from the company too, like a citrus juicer, or spatula. Sometimes, some of the campaigns are just for a good deal off of something very expensive. I’ve yet to have one of those campaigns, but I have enjoyed everything I have participated in so far. I have mostly just gotten food campaigns, but I have gotten a few others as well.
You need to do the surveys they ask so they know what campaigns you might be interested in. If you have a Kroger near you, it is in your best interest to link up your card to BzzAgent. I get many Kroger campaigns. I love BzzAgent, and I think you will too! http://u.bzz.com/jwdrb click on my link, so they know I sent ya! Happy bzzing!
