Last weekend I covered BzzAgent. This is a very low key business which is owned by Tesco and which sends you samples of new consumer products to test and review.
Tesco actually owns two product testing businesses. As well as BzzAgent, you also have The Orchard.
The Orchard differs from BzzAgent because it is focussed purely on new Tesco products. It also rewards you with free Clubcard points, which BzzAgent no longer does.
When you sign up with The Orchard, you will be sent free samples of Tesco “products, experiences and services” which are yours to keep, with an extra reward of some Clubcard points. You may also receive coupons allowing you to buy a product in store for free or at a substantial discount. The offers you receive will be based on data from your Clubcard account about the sort of products you already buy.
You can sign up for The Orchard here. Feedback from people I know who are involved is positive (better than for BzzAgent) – probably because Tesco is testing out its own products and is genuinely interested in what you have to say.
I am not a member myself so, if you’ve got any personal feedback on The Orchard, please do let us know in the comments.Want to earn more Clubcard or Nectar points?
