Congrats on landing a product testing.  It doesn't seem like they get discussed that much in the forum anymore.  I absolutely love them.  Fortunate for me, I've got one coming up in less than 2 weeks, finally.  I am really looking forward to it.

Because you are not suppose to discuss or post online anything about a product test you are doing.  I have made vague comments.  You sign a confidentiality statement that says you understand they can press charges against you for breaching the statement you sign saying you will not post anything online ANY WHERE anything about the product you are testing.  Yet people come in here and yap saying exactly what they are doing a test on. SMH

I hope I was vague enough!  I said absolutely nothing! No product identifiers here! No brands!
Nothing!

Right.  I have done that. But some people have told the exact thing brand and everything they test.  This can get you in trouble.

I know a guy who done mystery shopping and he would post everything on his facebook page.  He had hundreds of followers.  This was big time violation. smh  I don't know if he ever got caught.  Probably not unless somebody turned him in.  I am just saying I would not take the chance.  And then get kicked out of future opps.  I have tested some pretty cool stuff over the years.  Including stuff that has not been introduced to the general public yet. :D

Thank you calendria for posting your comments before I could post a clarifying response.  I never intended by my statement that any members in the forum breach their confidentiality agreements when I posed the general statement that nobody seems to be discussing product tests anymore {guess using any form of the word 'discuss' was a poor choice here}.  There have been numerous general, vague references to product tests that are ongoing without divulging brands, trade secrets or private information.  Product testing depends on this to serve its brands and the advertising campaign they will launch.  That's it!  I did mention in my post that I am expecting a product soon, but I am not revealing the brand nor the timeline.

Apparently my well-intended post got lost or entangled in legal obligations when what I was actually posing was that I've seen few product test opportunities in 2019.  I've been working FC steadily this year and only a couple of chances to qualify for these testings have come my way and those slipped through my fingers. :(

Don't take things so personal.  I just made a comment.  I have seen in these threads where people post exactly what they are testing.  I am testing a new product from Kool-Aid.  That is a violation of the thing you signed.  Personally, I don't care if somebody else gets banned from being able to do product testing.  Guess I am just more vague than others.

I too have had a few!  I love the ones for products I use already!  I am trying to point out that if you give up and don't try ALL the surveys, you might miss an opportunity for an in-home product test.
 People really don't pay attention to some that ask for name and address, these are the ones that want to send a product for an at-home test!

Everyone that asks for an address is not wanting to send you a product to test.  They tell you if that is what they want.  Some just want your info.  They say to verify who you are.

I've done product testing at home for FC before. I liked it and it was fun. I would definitely do it again.

Good job getting the product testing at home survey.  I use to get those quite often but haven't got one in a long time.

I have had a few over the years. I usually go through my email and just delete anything that I don't recognize since I get so much junk email every day. I should probably start paying attention to the subject line.

Most of the product testing is not going to be offered to you via an email.  It comes as the result of how you answer survey questions.  It is a good idea to actually READ your emails though.  I have received several that would have been really bad had I just went and threw away everything.  I at least look at who it is from before I delete it.

I love product  testing, which ones actually work and send products for you to try??  I have tried for many years but have not found one that does work.  If you happen to know, please share.  I would definitely like to give it a try.  Thanks!!

I did couple of these last year but this year I am having no luck doing surveys and have pretty much gave up on them.  I do mostly tasks and paid to click but i make good money on tasks.
