This is a great question and one we get asked a lot because it can seem a bit too good to be true, who doesn't want to test the latest products and then get to keep them? So below we explain how we fund this site which enables us to send out all these amazing products and gift cards to our reviewers.
As part of the sign-up process to apply to become one of our reviewers, you will be shown a lifestyle and advertising survey.
Within this survey we will ask some questions about who you are and what you like but we will also ask you if you would be interested in certain offers or adverts, for example 'Do you want to save money on your health insurance with USPT health?'. If you answered Yes, then with your permission we would let the advertiser know that you are interested in hearing from them. As part of that process we receive compensation from the advertiser regardless of whether you take them up on their offer or not.
We encourage you to only answer positively to offers you are genuinely interested in and want to find out more about (nobody wants to speak to someone about health insurance if you're happy with your current provider!). You do not have to take up any of the offers to be eligible to become a tester but you must reach the end of the path and confirm your email this is so we know we can get in touch with you if you are selected.
We also, like many other sites, display advertisements within our reviews and on some of our landers, these are easy to spot as they have the word advertisement above them and are in a grey box to seperate them from our content and we recieve compensation when users click these advertisements.
As much as we would love to give everyone who applies the opportunity to test unfortunately we just can't send out that many products. We select 10 people across our US sites each week to become a product tester or mystery shopper. The best way to know what products we need reviewers for next is to check your emails from us as we will let you know what products are being selected on what dates so you can apply and have the best chance of becoming a reviewer soon.
