L’Oreal Consumer Panel = FREE Cosmetics + More

Check out this email & pic above from Hip2Save reader, Jennifer:

Collin – First, thanks for the most awesome website on the planet! Second, I wanted to see if you’d be inclined to remind your Hipsters about the Consumer Testing Program from L’Oréal. Enclosed is an image of the FREE items I received for my participation in a recent study. Also, L’Oréal sent out an email not too long ago stressing a need for women of color for upcoming studies as well. If you choose to share, the website address is on the image and please remind all the Hipsters that sometimes it may take awhile before a study comes along that they qualify for, but to just be patient.

If you haven’t joined the L’Oreal Consumer Panel yet, head here to apply. If you qualify, you will receive occasional surveys that are usually focused on skin care and/or cosmetics. When you complete a certain number of the informational surveys, they will mail you full-size bottles of high end skincare and/or makeup products.

Thanks so much for sharing, Jennifer! And if you’re currently a L’Oreal Consumer Panel member, I’d love to hear your feedback on this program.

KidzEyes: Where Kids (Ages 6-12) Earn Money

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Do you have kiddos between the ages of 6-12 who want to earn a few extra bucks?! If so, head on over to KidzEyes, a website that conducts market research among 6-12 year old kids (note: this research is compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act). KidzEyes has clients that are interested in hearing kids’ opinions in order to provide better products and services for children and sometimes they are interested in hearing parents’ opinions too, in which case, you will help earn your child(ren) additional KidzPoints.

Here’s how it works…

* Kids complete the surveys that they receive from KidzEyes via email (surveys are emailed to both the kid’s and parent’s email addresses). Upon completion of the survey, kids earn KidzPoints that can be turned in for cash or prizes (100 KidzPoints = $1). Most surveys are worth between 50 and 1000 points, sometimes more…the longer the survey, the more points they award. The KidzPoints system works kind of like a bank account and KidzEyes will even keep track of your KidzPoints in an online piggy bank.

* After 1000 points ($10) is reached, your kids can cash them in or they can save them up for something special. When the points are cashed in, your kiddos will then receive a check in the mail, in care of the parent or legal guardian.

* Each month, kids will also receive the KidzEyes SuperPoll survey which enters them into a sweepstakes where they could win up to 10,000 bonus KidzPoints (worth $100)!

* In order for your kids to become a member of KidzEyes, you (i.e. the parent/guardian) need to complete the brief registration survey found here. You will be able to register multiple kids at a time, so the sign-up survey only needs to be completed one time per household. The registration process takes about 10 minutes AND as a thank you for completing the registration process, KidzEyes will award each kiddo you register with 500 KidzPoints ($5)!

* Only families that currently live in the United States are eligible to sign up for KidzEyes.

We love this company! I have one daughter who takes surveys for kidzeyes, an older one with teeneyes, and I do parentspeak. We haven’t gotten rich off of them, but spending money here and there.

We love Kidzeyes! My two boys enjoy getting their own checks in the mail. My 9 year old has made over $100 and my 7 year old almost $50. They only send out usually two surveys a month, maybe more on occasion. These checks go straight into their savings account.

This site is awesome, each survey is only about 5-8 minutes and super easy! However, they only send 1 or 2 surveys each week. I just cashed out and scored $99!

I have only been a member since the beginning of September of this year. I actually only joined because I read one of the posts Collin made around that time. I’ve had a very positive experience so far. I get about 1-2 surveys a week – sometimes 1-2 every few days. I have 3,000 points currently. I wish I could figure out how to cash these outs for PayPal payment and not for items. I need the cash for Holiday shopping :) . I have even received 2 products to test out – one item was food that I loved!

This is an awesome company! Have been doing surveys for them for a few years and nothing but positive things to say. Easy surveys, prompt payment, and occasionally a product to try. Highly recommended!!

I love Pinecone! I do the cash payouts and usually receive my checks within a few days. I’ve been a member for a couple of years – I have no complaints. It’s east money and I sometimes get free products to try!

I’ve been on Pinecone for a while now, and it’s pretty easy to do. They give u a survey about once or twice a week. Each survey pays about $3. Occasionally they’ll send u a product to test. I’ve had a couple sent including drinks and home products not in the market yet. Pretty cool.

Pinecone Research is awesome. I applied several times and finally got accepted last month. I love making money taking surveys and trying out products before they hit the market. I highly recommended them.

I love Pinecone – I do several surveys a week for them. The surveys are short and they pay promptly through Paypal.

I just wanted to thank you. I signed up for Pinecone Research when you posted it and within a few days, I was making money doing surveys. Within 2-3 weeks, I received my first product to try… and yesterday, I just received another product to try.

I am so excited to try these products. I hope the “payouts” are easy like everyone said. I haven’t done that yet. But I wanted to thank you.
