I mention product testing sites pretty regularly on this blog. While most of the time you don't get paid in cash for testing things (with the exception of Pinecone Research), it's still a good way to get a little extra with minimal effort. Today, I have a review of Daily Goodie Box, a product testing site I just learned about.
Daily Goodie Box seems to work similarly to PINCHme, a site you might already be familiar with.
How Daily Goodie Box Works
First off, you sign up. This is free. They only ask for your name and email address.
Then, you wait to get a Goodie Box from the company. Note these are subject to availability, so getting one every single month isn't a guarantee. But judging from the reviews of users online, many people are getting boxes several times a year.
The boxes you receive contain 5+ samples (some full-sized) from big-name companies you've probably heard of. All you have to do in exchange for receiving the samples is try everything out and then review the items you received.
Who Is Daily Goodie Box Open To?
It looks like you need to be at least 18 to sign up to do this and in the United States to have a box shipped to you.
How Can You Be Sure You Get Boxes?
I've been doing some research, and it looks like people who are active on the Daily Goodie Box Facebook page tend to get more boxes. So involving yourself on those two pages ups your chances for boxes. Note that I don't think you have to do that to get a box — it will just help your odds.
Using the hashtag #DailyGoodieBox when you post may also help from what I've read.
Is Daily Goodie Box Worth It?
While I am still new to this personally, I did a lot of research online and it looks like people are getting lots and lots of samples in their boxes from big-name brands. I know that subscription boxes are kind of a thing now and many people end up paying $10+ a month for boxes of samples. Daily Goodie Box isn't charging you a dime! And yes, it's true getting a box every single month isn't going to happen, it would be a pleasant surprise when it did.
Also, Daily Goodie Box (from what I can tell) isn't asking for long, detailed reviews. Some people clearly provide long reviews on their blogs, but if you go to the “Reviews” section on the Daily Goodie Box site at the very bottom, you'll see that most people are just giving them 2-4 sentence blurbs about their experiences with the different products. This shouldn't take very much time at all.
Don't Forget To Leave Your Feedback
It goes without saying, but if you receive a box of samples and fail to provide your feedback, Daily Goodie Box probably won't send you any more boxes. So if you sign up and enjoy the experience, be sure to do as promised and leave your feedback to ensure they'll consider you for future boxes!
