If you haven’t heard of The Orchard before, I’m sorry to bring the news that you will never find out what a great concept it was.
The Orchard was, like BzzAgent, a Tesco-owned product sampling company.
Only Clubcard members were able to sign up. The aim was for Tesco to get feedback on new products in return for giving you free samples and free Clubcard points.
An email sent out to The Orchard members this week informed of the decision to close down the program by 31st March and instead focus on in-store sampling.
Further the email promised that Tesco would “continue to offer you rewards through Tesco Clubcard – with lots more exciting activity planned for this year.”
Let’s wait and see how exciting this will be.
In the meantime you can still get free product samples when signing up with BzzAgent. You can no longer get free Clubcard points for testing products via BzzAgent, however – that deal was withdrawn last March.
