Also, be aware if you go looking for other product testing sites to sign up with that this is often used as a scam. Before signing up with any other companies be sure they are not trying to charge you for shipping. No legitimate product testing companies do this. They should never ask for any money from you. Also don’t fall for the product testing sites that claim they will send you some great item AFTER you complete five of their offers. You will waste a lot of time and energy signing up for trial subscriptions and products you don’t want and are often required to give a credit card number in case you forget to cancel your trial by the end of the free trial period. Legitimate product testing companies are very straightforward. They will usually ask you to fill out a brief survey when you first sign up in order to match you to products but there should be no need for credit cards and absolutely no fees involved.
