Shoppers' Perspective Community is a newer site for me. the surveys are usually short and sweet although somewhat infrequent. you can redeem your points when you hit only 500 pts. for Tango which has a multitude of gift cards to choose from (see below).

Personal Trainer Food Recap


CLICK MY LINK AND GET $50 OFF WITH PROMO CODE 'HEALTHYFOOD'

Well my 28 day program is winding down! I am so glad I had the opportunity to try it--it truly has changed the way I will eat. I feel slimmer, less bloated and less hungry. While I may not completely give up carbs and sugars (this girl needs a glass or two or three of wine some nights!) I definitely will be choosing proteins and veggies over carbs when deciding what to eat.

So how does Personal Trainer Food compare to the competitors?


#personaltrainerfood

#personaltrainerfood
So what exactly does PersonalTrainerFood send you for 28 days? You do have the option to customize exactly what you want. While the PTF way of eating is pretty limited to a few food categories--meats, vegetables, eggs, cheese and nuts--they do a decent job at providing variety. Here is a sampling of the options available:

Breakfast

I have been now been on the PTF program 3 days! Here are my highs and lows:

The Good:

-The food is tasty! Yes, I wish I had more of it, but I am enjoying everything so far. I have been very hungry though--they say the first 3 days are the worst and then my hunger should subside (fingers crossed).

PINCHme!--Get Free Stuff!





this site is all about grabbing samples QUICK but for free. afterwards, you get the samples mailed to you and receive a quick survey about your opinions a few weeks later. it's a great site but the samples go fast so you need to respond ASAP when you get the email that new monthly samples have launched. i have scored many full size nail polishes, trial sized shampoos/conditioners, and k-cups.




overall, it's pretty effortless but you have to be fast because the site is catching on and they run out if you wait.

My PTF is here---48 lbs. of it! I must say shipping is super quick. I placed my order Tuesday afternoon and Saturday it is at my doorstep. (in fact I could have even chosen Friday for delivery). It was all still very frozen and packed with dry ice. The food categories were also layered within the box for easy sorting--meats on the bottom, then veggies, breakfasts and snacks on the top.

What is the Personal Trainer Food Diet?

CLICK MY LINK AND USE PROMO CODE 'HEALTHYFOOD' FOR $50 OFF!

So what exactly is the Personal Trainer Food Diet Program? Based on what I am reading, it is similar to the Paleo diet, meaning if cavemen didn't eat it, we shouldn't either. It largely consists of meats, eggs, non-starchy vegetables, and nuts. 

Their website sums it up quite succinctly:

 Just ask one simple question...Is it a meat, vegetable or egg?” If so, then no worries. If its not, then avoid it.

Personal Trainer Food--my 28 day adventure begins!

CLICK MY LINK AND USE PROMO CODE 'HEALTHYFOOD' FOR $50 OFF!


I am very excited to begin a new diet delivery program called Personal Trainer Food! I have tried several other diet delivery programs in the past (Nutrisystem, Diet-To-Go, Medifast) with decent results and they were always my immediate go-to solution after gaining 60 lbs. from both my pregnancies. I had never heard of Personal Trainer Food but they approached me and I agreed to do an in depth review of their 28 day program (they provided me the food free of charge in exchange for my honest opinions).

Snap By Groupon Review

UPDATE! AS OF 3/1/16 SNAP INTRODUCED SOME MAJOR CHANGES. YOU NO LONGER EARN CASH BACK FOR ITEMS ON YOUR RECEIPT AND ANY REWARDS YOU HAVE ALREADY EARNED CAN ONLY BE USED TOWARDS GROUPON DEALS NOW. THE APP NOW OFFERS SOME COUPONS AND PROMOTIONS BUT THEY ARE OF NO INTEREST TO ME. I NO LONGER USE THE APP SINCE IT HAS CHANGED SO DRAMATICALLY. :(
https://snap.groupon.com/app


yes, yet another cash back shopping app has entered the arena! this one is called Snap and it's from Groupon. like checkout51, every retailer qualifies so that's a definite plus. the app is available for iOS and android devices and like the others, requires you to take a snapshot of your receipt and then check off the items you want to redeem.

Liquid Chalkers Review


#liquidchalkers

my take:

I was very excited to try these and knew they would be a hit with my boys. Although they are called liquid chalk they are more of a bright, dry erase marker that works fantastically on mirrors and windows.

the dinner:
hot dog mummies (i added bacon bits for eyes and used pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls)

LiveWire Research Review




here is another solid survey company that you don't hear from too frequently but is still good to have in your roster.

they recently changed their rewards program and now it is through Tango--which is a bit of a pain to redeem but i still can get amazon codes. Tango actually has many options including iTunes, home depot and target among many others).

Opinion It Survey Panel



this site is an easy $10 paypal or gift card every 2 or 3 months. i only see a survey about once or twice a month but i did score a product test last time! they also have a mobile site available on iPhone or android.
not a big money maker but one to have on hand. the surveys are super quick and their incentives are on the more generous side.

my survey review

this survey site is a sister site of globaltestmarket, although the surveys are not as well paying or as frequent. what i do like about this site is the amount of product tests i receive and last year i qualified for a hair study that paid $280! you never know what surveys will lead to great things so you just need to trudge through them and keep your fingers crossed!

walmart savings catcher review

#review
UPDATE #2! sadly the bluebird doubling has ended :( 
we can only hope they bring it back in the future.

UPDATE! i just learned you can get an american express bluebird card and DOUBLE your savings catcher rewards! it was super easy to do too. i just applied for the bluebird card (its not a credit card but kind of like a prepaid card) and they mailed it to me. i then transferred my $18 in savings catcher to the card and it doubled to $36. definitely take advantage of this offer!

OMG this is genius! everyone MUST download this app and take advantage of what walmart is offering.

simply put---shop at walmart, scan your receipt, walmart then does all the price checking for you--they actually compare their prices against all the nearby competitors printed and digital sales ads--and if someone had an item cheaper you get credited the difference! how easy is that?

YellowBeaks Window Bird Feeder Review



UPDATE! 
Every since the weather turned cooler I am seeing TONS of birds nibbling in the feeder! seriously, several different birds are taking a quick bite just about every couple minutes. One of my cats just watches in amazement nearly the whole day. They are super quick and it's hard to take a photo but I finally succeeded!


Window Bird Feeder From Yellow Beaks
#yellowbeaks   #review

My take:

I always wanted one of these! What a great idea--to see birds up close right at your window. I love that this bird feeder is completely clear--there's not a bad view to be found. It also holds A LOT of birdseed so you won't be filling it every other day. But probably best of all, because it's suspended midair to your window--those pesky squirrels can't get to it--this perch is all for the birds! I can only imagine the excitement my cats are having when they're home alone watching this bird show.

I have already earned a $5 Amazon giftcard and the discussions, surveys and activities are easy and fun.

The Pink Panel


if you are interested in testing out beauty products and sharing your opinion then definitely sign up for the pinkpanel!
this is a great site for product testing. i have tested anti-aging creams and serums and have gotten PAID (sometimes a check, sometimes an amazon gift card) on top of receiving the products for free. they have frequent screeners for upcoming projects but i noticed i don't always get an email so make sure you like them on fb as well to be in the loop for all open projects.


Sign up with the pinkpanel today!

Ebates--I still cannot believe this site is for real!




I still cannot believe I have earned over $800 from this site--because I didn't do ANYTHING! I buy what I usually buy online--amazon, ebay, kohl's, gap, target, walmart, practically any online retailer you can think of--and i just make sure to click the ebates link before I complete my order. THAT'S IT.


And this is real cash--put in my paypal account 4 times a year. It truly is easy, free money with zero work. If you are one of the few that haven't discovered this goldmine---sign up today and starting making money while you shop!

20/20 Research Panel


this is definitely THE panel to sign up for to score a focus group. they offer tons of them, covering just about every topic imaginable. also like their FB page because i have found many more opportunities are listed there compared to what i receive in email.

of course, taking long screeners is zero fun, and you will fill MANY out trying to snag a spot, but unfortunately that's the process and you will never get chosen for any if you don't try.

E-Jury Review





this site is a very interesting one. sign up to be an 'e-juror' and review an actual court case! submit your feedback,  explain your point of view, and actually say what your verdict would be--PLUS get paid for it.

valued opinions review


this is another site that i can count on every month for a $20 amazon gift card. they send out surveys quite frequently too--i often will get one daily and qualify for probably 70% of them.

they have many gift card reward options, including visa e-cards and pay quickly. i really have nothing bad to say about them other than they take out a small transaction fee for most redemptions and the surveys tend to be longer, averaging 20 minutes (and typically paying $2). i also have only received 1 or 2 product tests from them in almost 2 years time. i have qualified for a handful of 'special projects' though which were interesting and easy to do.

definitely worth signing up and trying out.

Kidzeyes Research Panel Review


a survey panel for your kids! this panel is also a division of C + R Research (check out my earlier post on Parentspeak Online Community) so now both moms, dads, and their kids can take fun surveys and earn cash!
kids ages 6-12, residing in the US, are eligible. surveys are not that frequent, maybe 1-2 a month and there is no minimum threshold to request a check. surveys topics typically are about food, sports, video games or school and are usually 5-15 minutes long. my son doesn't mind them since they are usually about things that interest him and he just LOVES to give his opinion!

check them out!

Inspired Opinions Review



you won't hear a lot from this site--i am lucky to see a single email a month--but when you do its usually a screener for a high paying online focus group. just last month i finished one with them that was easy, fun and earned me $150!

Locately App Review

UPDATE!

i believe locately has closed up shop--received this message on my app 10/28/14:








here is another mobile based app for your phone. surveys are somewhat infrequent--they usually pop up after you visit a retailer--but they are quick and simple.

surveys are usually worth 10 pts. and you get 1pt. for each day the app is running. once you hit 500 pts. you can redeem either a starbucks or amazon $5 gift card. it's an easy $5 every couple months.

i really racked up points though when i completed a special shopping assignment this past holiday season. so even if this doesn't seem worth it--hang tight and just keep accumulating your 1pt. daily because you never know when a great incentive opportunity will come along!

Opinion Square Review



this was one of the first survey sites i joined. i don't get surveys very often but can usually redeem a $10 amazon e-card about every 6 wks. the surveys usually center around health, the internet, or mobile devices. 
my favorite part of opinion square is that you receive a token if you disqualify and then you get to play their fun token game! you are guaranteed to win something--i most often win 25 pts but i have won 100 pts before too.

The Best Set of Measuring Cups--by KitchenMade





KitchenMade Stainless Steel Measuring Cups-Set of 6
#measuringcups

My take:

This just might be the perfect set of measuring cups!

Even though I have owned many sets, I have never own a set that contains more than the basic 4 measurements—this set has 6 and I love having the 2/3 and 3/4 cups. I was always taking my 1/4 c. for recipes, and measuring it 3 times—now this cup does it in one step! Moreover, the cups have marks on the outside also indicating partial measurements so even the 1 c. size has a 3/4 line marker.
