Glamspotters Reader Panel

I thought I’d take a moment to tell you about the Glamspotters Reader Panel.  This is hosted by the folks at Glamour Magazine.  They send out an occasional survey asking for reader opinions about various fashion and beauty topics.  In return for completing the survey you are entered into a small sweepstakes for a chance at a gift card (different retailers each time, but this time it was Sephora). There is an alternate way to enter without taking a survey, but it requires mailing in a post card.  I won one of these once a long time ago, so I know they really do draw the prizes.

Valued Opinions Looking for New Members

It looks like Valued Opinions is looking for new Members.  I have posted about them before and do feel they are a worthwhile survey site.  I’ve been a member with them for many years and they do offer some pretty good paying surveys, although some of them can be a bit long (usually the higher paying ones).  They send you offers several times a week, so if you really want to get started in surveys then you may want to give Valued Opinions a try.

Get a Free Premium Electric Shaver through BzzAgent

Most of you know that I participate in the BzzAgent Program and get to try out new and interesting products.  I took a break for a while, but am currently enrolled in a new campaign that I’ll tell you about real soon. I encourage all of you to try out the Bzz program.  Signing up is easy and the program is a lot of fun – you just talk about the product and pass along your coupons.  You report back to them each time you do so and they will reward you with points and a higher status in “the honey comb”.  The higher you are in the honey comb, the more invites you will receive.

Today they sent me an email message to pass along to you all.  If you know any guys between the ages of 13 and 20 then you might want to send them over to apply for a new Electric Shaver Campaign.  It will only work for new members:
