Awhile back I wrote about Arquest, a manufacturer of store brand diapers. They are always looking for people to participate in their diaper studies to help them improve the quality and performance of their diapers. If you qualify for one of their diaper studies, you will receive FREE diapers and get paid for your participation!
I just completed my first study with them, and it was super easy! They sent me three packs of diapers (60 total), all the same brand (although they didn’t tell me what brand it was). I was asked to use one pack of diapers every five days and keep note of the how well the diapers performed. After each pack of diapers was used, I had to complete a short phone survey (about 2 min long) to let them know my thoughts. Now that I am finished, I will be receiving a $10 check in the mail for my time. Free diapers, plus getting paid is worth it to me, and the time spent relaying my results over the phone was so minimal that it wasn’t a hassle at all!
Yesterday I received a call-back from Nieto, another company that does diaper studies. I had put in an online request to be a diaper tester for them about four weeks ago, and was finally hearing back from them. Their setup for the diaper studies sounds very similar to Arquest’s, except you complete your surveys online, and you have to mail in your data cards (postage paid). The gentleman I spoke with said it is very fast and easy (about 2 min per survey). I didn’t ask if I would get paid, and I don’t remember him saying anything about it. They will also be sending me three packs of diapers, so even if I don’t get paid I am okay with that!
To sign up for either company here’s what you need to do:
To see if you qualify for an upcoming study, you’ll need to call 1-888-342-7372 ext. 662. You will most likely hear a recorded message asking you to leave your name and call back phone number. You can also email Arquest at consumerpanel@arquest(dot)com with the following info:
*Daytime Phone number
*Child’s Gender & Weight
*Product test size you are applying for
I would suggest both calling and emailing them. I originally just called and left a message, but didn’t hear anything right away, so I emailed them a follow-up and heard back from them not long after.
NIETO RESEARCH INC.:
To join their consumer testing panel, you will need to sign up on their website. Click on the link at the bottom of the page that says “Consumer Panel Information Sheet.” It is a fairly short questionnaire that you will need to complete to help them see what you might qualify for. You can also call 1-770-965-9309 or email nietoresearchinc@aol(dot)com for more information.
If you know of any other diaper companies that need product testers, please let me know. I would love to be able to share that with everyone. Also, if you have participated in a diaper study for Arquest or Nieto, I would love to hear your thoughts!
