BzzAgent - Test Drive Great Products

BzzAgent Badge

This past summer I received a sample of the new OFF! Clip-on mosquito repellent system.  This is a great idea.  Good-bye messy, smelly, sticky sprays.  Just clip on this fan and it keeps those pesky mosquitos at bay.  The OFF! Clip-on started pack includes: 1 repellent fan unit, 1 refill disk, and 2 AA Energizer batteries.  This retails for $8.99.   Refill packs are $3.99 and include 2 refill disks.  I actually gave this to my mom and she had since bought refills.  This is great since she is going through chemo and is sensitive to many things such as sprays and bugs.

I also received a power pad lamp.  This does the job of 15 citronella buckets.  It will protect an area of up to 15 x 15 feet and lasts up to four hours. The lamp starter kit retails for $9.49 and includes: 1 reusable lamp, 1 mosquito repellent pad, and 1 candle.  Refill packs are available for $5.49 and include 3 repellent pads and 3 candles.

My daughter is participating in her second BzzCampaign.  The first one had full size samples of Clean & Clear for her and her friends.  Her newest campaign is for Burt's Bees.  And we all know how good and expensive Burt's Bees products can be.

This will not make you a ton of money, or any money for that matter.  But you can test new products and save some money while sharing with family and friends.

Nielsen Homescan Opportunity Open Again

This great opportunity is back, but for how long?  Nielsen still is taking applications for their consumer research panel.  They send you everything you need to get started and all you do is shop as you normally would.  When you get home you scan your purchases.  Once a week you transmit your scans and earn points.  Nielsen also sends you surveys and anniversary gifts for each milestone.  Read more about the program in my post here.

ClixSense - Advertising That Pays!

Here is another get paid to look at ads type of program. This one is very much like Hits4Pay. Just log in to your ClixSense account and click on Browse Ads $$. This will list all ads available to you and the amount they pay. Pay for viewing typically is 1¢ to 2¢ per ad. Remember to keep the ad open for 30 seconds, then close the window and click on the next. Simple, right?

Want to earn more? Play ClikGrid.

ClixGrid: Click to Win!
ClixGrid is easy to play! Just click within the image below. Each time you click you have a chance to win a prize (up to $5.00) that goes directly into your ClixSense balance! When you click the image a new window will open. If that click is not a winner then you will be shown a page submitted by one of our advertisers. If your click is a winner then you will receive a page telling you how much you have won!

As a non-premium member you have up to 20 chances to win every day! So far you have clicked 0 times today. You have 20 chances to win remaining! Each click you make has a chance to win! (Note: please refresh this page to update your click count)

Premium members have up to 50 chances to win every day!

I know, you want even more, don't you? How about an affiliate program?

Free members (Non-Premium members) will receive $0.01 for each referral and will receive $2.00 if their direct referral upgrades to a Premium account. You will also receive 10% of revenues generated from your referrals' ad purchases.

Premium Members are paid affiliate commissions 5 levels deep!

PREMIUM MEMBERS – You are instantly paid $0.10 for each new referral. When one of your direct referrals upgrades their account to a Premium membership, you are instantly paid $2.00 for that member's upgrade. When that member refers a new member who upgrades to premium you are instantly paid a $1.00 override commission. You just got paid for doing NOTHING! Even better, that same scenario pays FIVE LEVELS DEEP! And now, level five referrals pay as much as your direct referrals: $2.00!!

Let's take a look at what happens if you were to refer only five new members to and ONLY three of those members upgrade to a Premium account. We'll use the same scenario through all five levels:



My thoughts. I am still feeling this program out, but it seems promising. Not a get rich anything, but a little more to add to your other programs and make a little extra something something. As with anything the more people you can get to join through your referral link the less work for you. Caveat. Do not push this on all of your friends and family just to earn a little more. Try to actually work the program, too. Share the wealth a little and let your friends and family get a few referrals under them as well. Besides, you get credit for their referrals, too!

Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel - EXPIRED

The opportunity heard 'round the blogosphere. That is right. I believe every blog I frequent has a post about Nielsen Homescan. This is a great opportunity if you want to have a voice in the shopping habits of consumers. If you think you will get great "prizes" quickly and earn lots of money, then you should not bother with Nielsen Homescan. You can earn great prizes, but it will take some time.

My level of experience with this program.

I have been a member since February of this year. So far I have received a few extra gifts for being a member. In April I received a nice insulated shopping bag that folds up for convenience; in May I received a multipurpose bottle opener. I have missed a few weeks of input (I was out of town), but have been diligent in scanning almost all of my purchases.

What do you get?

First, Nielsen sends you a hand held scanner and a charging base. This you keep plugged in and close to a phone line [for transmitting]. The instructions say to keep the scanner in the charging base when not in use. You also will receive a laminated barscan page for items such as fruit, vegetables, meats, bakery items, and fuel purchases. You will receive an instruction booklet, a book of items you can "purchase" with the points you earn, and your own identification number.

How does it work?

Every time you make a purchase you are to scan each item, enter the price, how many purchased, coupons used, and if there were store specials. This can be time consuming, especially if you use a lot of coupons [like me]. You need to remember what coupons were used or keep a list. I have heard some people take their scanner with them while they shop, so this is another option. Once a week you are to transmit your scans to Nielsen via phone line. Then, you are to call in for any special instructions, surveys, and other information. Nielsen also has a website for checking your balances and online survey opportunities to earn additional points for rewards.

What do you scan?

Everything. If you buy a newspaper and Coke at the store, Nielsen wants you to bring your items home to scan before you throw them away. If you fill up at the gas station, Nielsen wants to know. Going out to eat? Keep your receipt and enter your information in your scanner when you return home.

What do you earn?

  • Sign-up Points- When you become an active household and receive your equipment, you automatically receive 1,000 sign-up gift points.
  • Weekly Transmission Points - Each week you transmit, you receive gift points:
  • Anniversary Points - Get bonus gift points when you reach your 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year anniversaries! These extra gift points are also given on each anniversary after your 1-year anniversary.
  • Super Scanner Points - 350 additional gift points are awarded each month you qualify. That's up to 4,200 additional gift points each year! To qualify, you must:
  1. transmit your purchase and/or survey information every week in a month, or
  2. make an "empty" transmission if your household has not shopped that week, or
  3. transmit the Won't Be Shopping Survey if you'll be unable to shop.
  • Survey Points - You can earn additional gift points by answering Homescan surveys. You may receive surveys via regular mail, e-mail, or on your Surveys payge at
Homescan Consumer Panel Sweepstakes Program

  • Lucky Weeks Sweepstakes - Transmit once a week to earh an entry into the Lucky Weeks Sweepstakes. Every week, 10 panel members win $25!
  • Monthly Sweepstakes - Transmit each week of the month to earn one entry into the Monthly Sweepstakes. Every month, 15 panel members win $1,000!
  • Extra Special Super Scanner Sweepstakes - Transmit every week in the month and you'll earn Super Scanner points. For each month you receive Super Scanner points, you'll earn one entry into the Extra Special Super Scanner Sweepstakes. That's up to THREE entries every quarter! Every quarter, 30 panel members win $500!
  • Grand Prix Sweepstakes - Transmit every week in a qualifying quarter to earn on entry into the biggest sweepstakes of them all... the Grand Prix! Every quarter TWO panel members win their choice of any one of the following: a fantasy vacation, a new vehicle, or a lump sum payment of $20,000!
  • Ultimate Shopping Spree Sweepstakes - Transmit EVERY WEEK in the Homescan year to earn one entry into the Homescan Ultimate Shopping Spree Sweepstakes! One panel member gets his or her choice of any 10 gifts from the current Homescan Gift Catalog.
There you have it. If you interested in becoming a Neisen Homescan Consumer Panel member, then click on the image below to get started.
