You can get paid to try out new products before they are launched. This can be anything from new sweets (how about 'confused' skittles?) to the latest gadgets .
For road testing these products and giving feedback you'll usually get rewarded with gift vouchers (often for Amazon) or hard cash. If you want to get involved sign up to sites such as Paidproducttesting.co.uk or toluna.com.
