Paid Focus Groups

Have you ever been to a focus group?  Companies will pay you to tell them what you think about their products. There are not trying to sell you anything, just getting your opinions. They are generally 1-2 hours and vary in pay, about $75-$100 dollars for your time. Some places even feed you!  Here is a list of some local groups.  If you sign up for several different groups, you have a better chance of getting called.  You are eligible every 3 months or so, depending on the group.
