Now is a great time to participate in paid focus groupsÃ‚ as these two options are paying $175 and $80 each (details below). But also, it is an expensive time of year with back-to-school shopping well underway. Let’s face it new clothes, shoes, backpacks and lunch boxes aren’t free, plus as school ramps up there will be activity fees, school pictures, fundraisers and more.
Both of these paid focus group opportunities are through Focus Pointe Global. They run market research groups across the country that pay you for your time to come in and test new products and share your honest opinion. Focus Pointe hasÃ‚ sponsored this blog postÃ‚ to ensure that our community is kept informed of their upcoming groups (I think their sponsorship is a win-win since they are a legit way to earn some extra cash and our community is full of people who make exceptional focus group participants).
Upcoming Paid Focus Group Opportunities Ã‚ ($100 and $80 each!)
Next week Focus Pointe is running two different paid focus groups.Ã‚ If you qualify, you can participate in both of them. Details are below along with links to their pre-screener application, which is the first step to securing a spot in these groups.
- $100 for 2-hour paid focus group on cereal. This group requires you to participate in a 2-hour conversation about cereal sometimeÃ‚ during the week of August 8th (next week); various times available. Group will be held in Focus Pointe Global’s Edina office. Both men and women ages 22-54 are encouraged to apply using this eligibility screener. If you are eligible, based on your pre-screening, then you’ll be contacted with specific date/time options and location information.
- $80 for 90-minute paid focus group about snack bars. This 90-minute paid focus group will be held in Golden Valley next week (week of August 8th). In exchange for 90 minutes of your time and your honest opinion you’ll be paid $80 on your way out the door. Men and women ages 21-55 are encouraged to apply using this pre-screener application. If you are eligible, based on your pre-screening, then you’ll be contacted with specific date/time options and location information.
As a reminder, you’re first step is to complete the eligibility screener to determine if you are pre-qualified for the focus group. If you are pre-qualified, then you will receive a phone call from a staff member to further establish your eligibility for participation. If you are selected, then you’ll be given the logistical details including a final confirmation on the pay, exact time and place.
