If you’re looking for ways to earn a little extra cash this summer (vacations aren’t cheap, are they?) I encourage you to start participating in paid focus groups. Focus Pointe Global is a local-to-Minneapolis market research firm that pays $75+ per focus group in exchange for an hour or so of your time and your honest opinion. We introduced Focus Pointe Global and their paid focus group opportunities in this blog post, if you missed it.
Focus Pointe loves having Pocket Your Dollars’ readers in their focus groups and has partnered with us to share their upcoming groups (translation: earning opportunities) with you. My husband has participated in one of their focus groups and it was an easy, sort of fun way to earn some extra cash, which I used toward an eye exam – thank you honey :)
Upcoming Paid Focus Group Opportunities Ã‚ ($75+ each!)
This week and the week of July 4 there are two different focus groups that are currently recruiting participants. 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.
- $75 for focus group on food products. This group requires you to participate in a 90-minute conversation sometime this week, June 20-24;Ã‚ various times available. Both men and women ages 25-55 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.
- Paid focus group about youth pants.Ã‚ If you have a 4-12 year old child, please participate in one of these upcoming focus groups. They vary in duration and pay, but you will be given that information before you are asked to commit. These groups will be held the week of July 4. Please complete this eligibility screener if you are interested in securing a position.
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.
