Vindale Research: Test & Keep Full Size Products + Get Paid For It. I’ve Been Paid!

I love sites that do full size product testing! I have been a member of one like this for several years now and have two weeks worth of trash bags on the way to my home to test as we speak (they aren’t accepting panelists at the moment, though), but Vindale Research is! Vindale Research is one of the only ones that does full size product testing and pays you for your responses. They pay anywhere from $5 – $75 per survey!

Psst… I have been paid by Vindale in the past!
