Every so often you write an article and it turns out that something changed and you never found out … this is one of those. This piece has been rewritten since originally published.
For many years, BzzAgent was one of the more low-key ways of earning Clubcard points even though Tesco owns the company.
BzzAgent – their website is here – is a business which undertakes product sampling for household goods companies. Once you have signed up and given the company some details about your lifestyle, you will receive occasional sample packages (full size) of household goods and non-perishable food through your letterbox, for free.
Your only obligation is to give the product a try and then write a short review which you are asked to share on your social networks.
For a long time, Tesco offered a handful of Clubcard points for some (but not all) of the activities you completed. as well as receiving the original product for free.
I thought this was still the case – the Clubcard earning element is still discussed in the Terms & Conditions – but according to the comments below this was dropped recently.
You may still be interested in joining BzzAgent purely for free product samples. The important thing to realise is that BzzAgent is owned by Tesco via its Dunnhumby subsidiary (this is the Tesco business which also manages Clubcard). This means that it is a 100% reliable business and highly unlikely to abuse your personal data.
I have had some feedback on Bzzagent from members.
There seem to be two opposing views. Some people are not keen that the company strongly encourages you to use Twitter and Facebook to talk about the products you have been sent – and you must disclose in your posts that you got the products for free.
On the other hand, I know members who are happy with the value of the items they have been sent for review and have no problems with sharing information about the products online. There are others who ignore the requests to post on social networks and just complete a private product review for BzzAgent – this is OK and you will still receive your reward.
I am not a member of BzzAgent and have no personal experience of it. The fact that Tesco owns it, however, is good enough for me and makes me happy to recommend it for a closer look if it sounds the sort of thing you’d enjoy – you just won’t be earning Clubcard points any longer.Want to earn more Clubcard or Nectar points?
