What type of products are available to test?
Home Tester Club focuses on supermarket products, so the product tests can include anything from toothpaste to hair dye.
What does product testing for Home Tester Club involve?
You will need to test the product for a set period of time, usually around two weeks. After the trial period, a short survey will appear on the Company’s website. You may also be asked to upload a photo of either yourself using the product, or of its before and after effects. Increasingly, Home Tester Club has been asking product testers to share these photos on Facebook and Instagram.
How will I know when products are available to test?
Home Tester Club usually sends out emails inviting you to register your interest in testing a product, but not always, so it is worth checking the ‘Test’ area of the website regularly for new trials. If you are accepted onto a trial the Company will ask you to confirm your address, and won’t include you in the trial until this is done, so this is an essential step.
Occasionally the Home Tester Club emails participants a short questionnaire relating to a product, which takes about 2 minutes to complete. If you take part you will automatically be entered into a prize draw. There are also weekly competitions on the website which are uploaded on Mondays.
Is it worth it?
The last couple of times I have registered for a product, Home Tester Club has asked me to post photos on social media. I don’t think my followers want to see pictures of products, so this has put me off joining the trial. A free tube of toothpaste or a bottle of cheap shampoo isn’t really enough of an incentive for me to do this.
For that reason I believe that my time on this site is limited. A shame really, as I have enjoyed testing for them and have discovered some great new products. If you are aren’t doing too many product tests and are happy to share these photos on social media, it is definitely worth your time as the surveys are quite short and the trials aren’t too time consuming.
