How to get products for free.

“How do you get free products?” That is a question I hear almost daily. Today I am here to share with you a few of my favorite websites I use to obtain FREE (mostly full size) products.

The first website that I’m going to brag about is Influenster. I have been an Influenster for just over three years. I stumbled across Influenster when I saw a friend of mine posting reviews on Facebook about products she received for free. Back when I joined Influenster, you needed another Influenster to invite you to join. Today, you can create an account for free. It’s simple to create an account and get started. Once you have created an account, it’s time to start reviewing! Search for products you already use and review them. You can also ask questions about the product or help answer other Influenster’s questions. The best advice I can give you about Influenster is to stay active and don’t give up hope! The more active you are, the more likely you are to receive a VoxBox. Also, make sure to connect all of your social media accounts and answer all “snaps” that come you way. I have been lucky enough to receive multiple VoxBoxes a year and I have so much fun with them! Influenster will email you short surveys for you to fill out to try to qualify you for future VoxBoxes. Make sure that you respond to them promptly because there’s always a deadline associated with each survey.

Cleaning stuffed animals — naturally.

Last Christmas, my daughter received a Leap Frog “Violet” stuffed dog for Christmas from her aunt. My daughter and Violet have been inseparable ever since. I love Violet.  She’s educational, cute, customizable — what more could you look for in a toy for your child, right? My daughter likes to use Violet as a teething ring, security blanket, napkin . . . you name it. But, Violet has one huge downside. She’s extremely difficult to clean! You can’t throw her in the washing machine or submerge her in water because her battery pack is sewn into her.

I decided to see if I could get Violet clean with a little TLC and Arm & Hammer’s baking soda. Guess what? It worked! I’ve been using this method for almost a year now and decided to share it with you all 🙂

ARM & HAMMER(TM) baking soda from Smiley 360!

Hey everyone!

I’d like to take a minute and share one of my new favorite websites with you. It’s called Smiley360 (http://h5.sml360.com/-/emmm). If you’re a member of the Influenster nation, you will love Smiley360.

Smiley360 is very similar to Influenster. You start by creating a free account. Next, you will start receiving surveys on your dashboard. Answer the questions honestly and see if you become qualified for an upcoming mission 🙂

In October I qualified for another Smiley360 mission. The mission consisted of testing 5-Hour Energy Drinks. Sadly, I could not finish the mission. I was recently diagnosed with a mitral valve disorder and given medication for the heart palpitations, so I have to stay away from energy drinks and anything that might contain high amounts of caffeine.
