Earn up to $275 Trying New Products Before They Hit The Shelves


This post is sponsored by Consumer Product Testing Labs.

We are halfway through January, and a little extra cash right now can be just the thing to get 2024 off to a great start. So we’ve got good news— you can earn money with Consumer Product Testing Labs (CPT) and sample brand-new self-care and beauty products before they hit store shelves. Simply sign up, visit the CPT laboratory to qualify, pick up the product, try it at home, and revisit CPT to report back (your feedback helps shape the final product). The best part is that you and your family can test stuff you can use, like face cream and makeup (hello, new mascara), and family products, like baby wipes and deodorant. With studies updated weekly, there are plenty of chances to sign up now (dates for recent trials are below) and be on the list for future ones. Read on to learn more about current CPT studies, and check back here for updates. (Featured Image Photo: istock/PeopleImages)

Here are CPT’s newest must-know trials

With studies available for women, men, and kids, CPT is easy to sign up for and do. Click on the links for more in-depth details about each study, and keep in mind the initial visit determines if you qualify. Also, good to note that the studies change and new ones are added frequently, so be sure to like CPT’s Facebook page for daily updates. When you’re ready to commit, check in with them to determine if the study you want is still available. You can also call to make an appointment to get qualified to become a panelist and be notified of the latest studies. FYI—Sunscreen products are tested in their photobiology laboratory, and all take-home studies pay $30 and up, depending on the number of visits and how long the study lasts.
