BzzAgent is an international network of consumers who take part in word-of-mouth campaigns for a variety of products and services. It is a membership program that gives subscribers free products to try. After trying the free products, members review and share their experiences with the campaigns to qualify for future campaigns. Short surveys will appear in your profile. Complete them to see if there are any new campaigns available. How many programs you qualify for will depend on your participation efforts and BzzScore. The more you do the higher your score.
Despite my BzzScore (had not completed surveys in a while), I got invited into the Downy Unstoppables campaign on July 17th. The product arrived at my house less than a week later. You never know what size the product will be until it arrives. This campaign provided three single-use samples. On the one hand, these would be great for travel. Had I known how small the samples would have been, I would not have opted into this.
A general BzzAgent card accompanies all free products.
Some boxes also have a product card to go over some important details on the product. Those usually have coupons for the product as well. This campaign did not have either.
I’ve used samples of these in the past, so this was not my first experience. As I found them a little expensive, I chose not to ever purchase them. Part of the reason I accepted this campaign is I saw a coupon for them and was contemplating a purchase. Before I could even get to the store, I got this email. I told myself that I would test the product again and buy it (coupons pop up for this all the time) if I really loved it.
Since I only had enough for three loads, I decided to test our blankets. If the scent could last in something we sleep and sweat in for 8 hours every night, it would be worth the purchase. Thankfully, I love the fresh scent they sent me, but I can see someone disliking this product just on scent alone. It is very strong. This product promises 12 weeks of freshness in storage, and I really want to test it that way at some point. Washing something I will not use for 12 weeks is not a common occurrence, but it does happen. These are great with blankets, because they are small. My Tide pods sometimes get stuck in between the blanket, so I have to use liquid detergent when I wash blankets.
None of the liquid detergents I use ever smell as great as my Tide pods, so my blankets usually lose their fresh scent relatively quickly. Almost two weeks after washing my blankets and each of my son’s blankets, they all still smelled fresh. I cannot remember the last time that happened. About a week later, my older son and I lost the freshness in our blanket, but my younger son still had his. Around the four-week mark, his freshness finally went away, which was incredible. We usually have to wash our blankets every two to three weeks, so this can elongate the freshness to delay the wash a little. For everyday use, I will stick with Tide pods. When I want to freshen something like bedding or something that will sit around for a while, I will happily buy this. If it was cheaper, I would use this all the time.
Once you’ve tried the product, you have activities to complete. Completing the activities helps you qualify for future programs. These are the tasks I will complete for this campaign. This one has less activities than my last mission, and I will complete them all. The face next to the campaign starts sad as you approach the deadline. After completing some activities in turns happy. Sometimes I stop when it turns happy. Other times, I keep going until I complete them all. It depends on my mood, and which activities BzzAgent wants me to complete.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
