What people are saying…

“Great thing to do in spare time. Almost like cash for free.”

Great Experience. The study I participated in was long (8+ hours), interesting and educational. All of the logistics and the process itself were well thought through and efficient, including light breakfast, snacks and deli style lunch.

Received monetary compensation for 2 hours of my time. They even provided lunch. My experience was positive.

Fun way to make extra money! This is a great company and I have done taste tests, product testing and opinion panels. Their offices are professional, the testing is done in a very business like manner and I was always paid upon completion. I would highly recommend this company and plan on using them in the future. They have an A+ on the BBB listing if anyone is skeptical.
