Christmas Eve was a happy, happy mail day here at Pennywise headquarters. I got not one, but two boxes full of free stuff from Influenster. Influenster is a social shopping website that periodically sends you products in exchange for posting your review of the product on social media or another public website. I’ve gotten a lot of these campaigns, probably 3 to 4 a year over the past two years. It’s always such fun to do these because you usually get a random assortment of things to try that may be outside your comfort zone (hello fake eyelashes!) but since it’s free you aren’t out anything if it is not for you.
Once you sign up they will ask you questions to find out your demographics and your interests so they can tailor the boxes to fit your life. When you have been selected for a campaign, which can take a while in the beginning, it will appear on the dashboard of your account.
Clicking on each campaign gives you tasks that can be completed to earn a badge for each product. Earning a badge enters you for a chance to win a brand boxes. One of the boxes I got last week was a prize I won from the Johnson Healthy Essentials campaign, and it was full of great Johnson and Johnson products. Each company will have specific requirements for their tasks, whether it’s sharing a post on Facebook or writing a review on Amazon.
My winning brand box from Johnson and Johnson!
My current Holiday VoxBox full of great stuff! Not pictured is the super cute Itty Bitty Spiderman from Hallmark and the nail polish from Pure Ice as Santa was able to slip those in to stockings at my house!
Influenster is a fun, free way to discover new products and interact with other Influensters on social media. There is a wealth of information other Influensters have shared so it’s somewhere I check when I want to know about the latest and greatest stuff to hit the market.
