I love focus groups.  You go to a place, tell them what you think, get some free food and a nice payday.  Today I did a focus group at Schlesinger and Associates.  For my time (two hours) I was paid $150.00 cash. As usual, I’m going to trade with those funds on /r/giftcardexchange, and invest the returns from those trades into our Prosper.com (local link) account, which is currently returning 12.17% Y/Y.Read More →

Schlesinger and Associates came through big-time this week!  Today I did my second focus group.  This one was a taste-test for a new juice coming to market.  It lasted about 30 minutes and I was paid $75.  As usual, I deposited the money in my Prosper account (where I’m enjoying over 10% return per anum).Read More →

Last night I was invited by Schlesinger and Associates to participate in a focus group about a new product.  I love focus groups.  They are fun, you are fed (nothing special but, hey, free food is free!) and the pay is quite nice. Yesterday we spoke for two hours, and I was paid $125 on a prepaid VISA debit card.  I also ate some good pizza. I paid $12 to Uber to the location and back to my house, but I also ate three pieces of pizza (which together were the size of one normal by-the-slice piece, which go for around $3.50 where I’m from) so I’m going to put the total costs at $8.50 – $12 – $3.50 worthRead More →
