Product Testing Canada List ~ Testing out Products for Free

Product Testing Opportuntiies


Nov 18, 2020 Join our Private facebook Group!

Product Testing is available in Canada ~ In a variety of ways. 

Some companies distribute free samples to a certain number of people based on specific criteria called product testing! It may factor in where you live, how old you are, If you have children, health problems, etc. Companies sometimes only have a certain amount of products to try, so they may even do it randomly. Consumer focus groups not only get to do product testing, but they also get paid to become a product tester.

This article is not about how to get paid to become a product tester because that’s just a spam article; this is more about how to become a product tester to receive free products to do the product testing.

How does product testing work?

Companies and brands will give away free sample products through product testing Websites that specialize in product reviews and samples. Most of these companies love people with large social media followings and want you to showcase their latest new products, such as new beauty products!

Product testing is a great way to get to keep products! Did I mention you get products for free?

Some of the more popular best product testing brand companies are listed below.

Not every product tester that applies for a free sample product offer will be chosen; after all, the brands aim for sometimes the perfect individuals to try their product and can be based on the following criteria.

Product Testing Surveys

Most of the product testing sites will ask you to fill out online surveys so they can decide which consumer product you may test and review.

  • Age
  • Children or babies, pregnancy
  • Your location ( could be a city, provincial )
  • Your household income
  • Hobbies
  • Interests
  • products you use already
  • marriage status

Product Testing Profiles:

For all the following social websites, you will be asked to fill out your personal profile or will ask for online surveys to be completed. This is to help them decide on product tests to move onto another survey to decide which items you may test and review.

You will not be eligible for every product test, so it’s best to expect nothing and hope for something when it comes to free stuff! Each research company is different, and so are the items and surveys they conduct.

Free samples

Product Testing for Free stuff is possible, but don’t expect to go into this with the thought of your mailbox being filled up with free samples each week. It’s not how it works, unfortunately. There is a lot of product testers wanting ta chance to test new items.

But Stick with it, and participate in all the online surveys the product testing website gives you,

Tips on Remembering to do a Survey when you belong to several product testing websites

  1. Create a Weekly date with yourself ( even if it is a 1/2 hour)
  2. Visit all the websites you have signed up for a chance to test with.
  3. Complete any survey you can on your dashboard
  4. Leave a Review on any new items you have tried at home by leaving a comment where you can add a review or comment.

Remember to full fill any Product Reviews you do get selected for! It’s only fair, and failing to complete your agreement will result in no longer being eligible for more chances in the future.

Here are the Free Sample Products to try out for and review from the top Product Review companies in Canada right now! 

You must expect “Nothing” and hope for “something” as an opportunity to try a product.

Check out what other free stuff you can get. Saving money has never been easier with Canadian Free Stuff.

Testing Products for Free

The following websites will allow you to do product tests for an exchange of a consumer review! These are the most common places to start with getting selecting product testers.

Bzz Agents  Answer quick surveys to fill us in on the things you like; they will send periodic emails to let you know you have been selected to test a product and do another survey to see if you would like to participate and make sure your home address has not changed. Please share your thoughts on the products Bzz Agents has been around for a long time. It was the first product testing website on the scene.


Chick Advisors:: You need to have 5 Reviews before generally being considered into the Product Review Club. The more you participate, the more chances you will be chosen for free products. Chick Advisors usually has two to four new beauty products an opportunity to test. Per month. They usually only have a few hundred new products to test, so don’t be discouraged, your product testing opportunity will come, and it’s one of those product testing sites where participation is the most important. Try and schedule some time each month to review products you have tried out or can comment on.

Family Rated: This is a sister website of the company Chick Advisors. So it would be best if you also were a contributor to be considered chosen to participate in their products to test. Be aware that many items and opportunities are only for USA residents. They may have 3-5 product review opportunities per year for Canadians. But it is a worthy website to sign up for

XY Stuff
Xy stuff is also under the ChickAdvisor umbrella and usually is used to promote Male consumer products, and they do give out free samples from time to time. Again, this will be based on the number of reviews you have with my stuff and the chick advisor website. There may be one to two product reviews per year, usually geared around Fathers Day.

Sampler: Sign up, and you will time to time get offers to try new products by doing quick surveys to see if you are eligible. With tons of testing products made available, this social media giant is hugely popular, and the items go super quick. The product samples are small and can fit into an envelope, you will receive a tiny sample, and it’s first-come, first-serve if your survey matches up to the company demographics chosen. Often, the brands are running in the house, and you won’t find new product testing opportunities on your dashboard. There seem to be some tech issues I find with their site, and I’m not a huge fan of them, but they do give away lots of beauty products and food products to test per month.


Home Steader Club: Do a few product reviews, and you can be chosen to be the next product testers program. You will need to do a few surveys before as well. Home Testers has now moved over to larger products to try, beauty products such as blow dryers, straightening irons, and items such as kids’ toys and food products. They will give Canadians a few product opportunities to apply for each month. This is a great product testing company; it’s fair, and it is easy to find product testing offers in one spot and is easy to apply with a quick 5 answer survey to fill out. I’m sure there are not tons of free products given away, probably similar to chick advisor, but their products are really starting to be large in nature.


Influencer: This site lets you flex your social media influence and earn rewards using Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. Plus VoxBoxes: Each month, Influenster ships out thousands of exclusive VoxBoxes to their members.

Once you create a new profile and answer all the “SNAPs,” which is just another fancy word for a survey, the more snaps you finish, the more opportunities you may apply. It’s a very point activated system and has now really moved over to using the program on your mobile phone application. They even have a full course on how to make the best of their product testing company. The site is geared to beauty products you would like to test and research.



Social Nature: Sign up for Healthy Alternatives new food products – GMO-Free and other exceptional healthy items to try. Again, you will need to apply, and I hope you are a lucky contestant. This product testing company is actually very controversial, as many fellow Canadians swear this company is a scam. Still, it could just simply be there are not enough product tests to give away for samples. There’s no huge signup process, and it’s pretty simple to apply for a free opportunity to test.

Sample Source – This is a program to register for and is a two-part for free samples to test. You can read more on it here. But it’s a program that launches a few times a year, and they literally give away like 10,000 boxes filled with up to 15 free product samples, some even full-sized and the large giveaway is done in less than an hour! Then there may be other free samples sent to your home based on your profile during the year, mostly right after a box giveaway event.

Best Buy Baby Product Testing

Best Buy: If you have a baby in your home or toddler under the age of two or expecting, consider applying to be part of Best Buy’s baby Samplers club, and you may get an opportunity to receive baby and maternity products in return for your product opinion. If they choose you to do the product testing, you will keep the Products for FREE.

USer Testing


If you enjoy testing mobile apps and testing out websites, this is a great way to access free apps and programs online. Plus each Test or task you complete, you can earn $10.00. I have zero experience with this program, but I’ve seen enough positive reviews of people actually getting paid for their time. Obviously, you will get to try out the software for free regardless.

Net Gallery Free Books to Review

Net Gallery is a great Review Site if you are an avid book reader! You need to be a Reviewer, even if it’s just an Amazon Reviewer as a consumer. It says you need to a Librarian, bookseller, educator, blogger, Media position, but it also says reviewer, so if you can do up a review, you can review a book. I did the signup today, and it allowed me in as a Canadian, and I put it as I was a Consumer Reviewer. This group is free to join, and you can keep all the books you receive.


Bevtri Product Testing: If you enjoy alcohol, beer, wine, whisky, vodka, etc. You live in a large city in the following province: Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, you could end up being chosen for a free sample delivered to your door. You will be required to be home to accept the sample and show your government ID as proof of age.

You can get involved with focus groups who test a product or service and help make improvements before it’s released. Many of these product testing focus groups are paid opportunities for your time.

Find focus groups for all sorts of things, it could be for eating a new food product before its the shelves on grocery stores, or it could be to try out a new beauty product during a human trail, or it could be a simple brainstorming session to discuss your daily habits.

Focus Groups can be found in person or online. At the end of the focus group meetings ( there may be a few), you will be paid for your time.

JMRS focus group for paid product reviews

JMRS is another company that has focus groups that you can be paid to be a part of if you live in the following cities in Canada: Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal. It’s an easy sign-up online if you decide to be considered part of their focus group and participate.

PTPA media ~ If you have a blog or are considered an expert in your industry, you can apply for Product Reviews for your website. This is great for those people just starting in the blogging world, or nitch website. It’s not for the typical individual to get a free product.
