Home Tester Club is an online community where people just like you can learn about new products and share their experiences with one another. The key elements of Home Tester Club include:

  • Uncensored Product Reviews - At Home Tester Club YOU write the product reviews. By becoming a member you can post comments on hundreds of new products, sharing your experiences with other members who love trying new things just like you.
  • The Latest New Products – By clicking on New Product Watch you can see the latest new products we’ve found on supermarket shelves and to read what our members have to say about them.
  • Free Product Samples - From time to time we’ll be selecting Home Tester Club members to receive coupons, special offers and free product to try themselves and share with their friends. All we ask in return is that you complete a short survey to tell us what you think about those products!

As a Home Tester Club member, you’ll get a chance to have your voice heard. Share your new product experiences with others and read what members like you are saying about products they’ve tried. The reviews might make you think differently about the everyday choices you make. Perhaps you’ll discover a new family favourite, or discover that the product you’ve always used is unbeatable. Whatever you think, we want to hear it.

As a member of our club, you can also be invited to participate in surveys about new advertising that companies are developing, new products they want you to sample, and other forums that allow you to talk about what you’re buying in the grocery store.

Only your first name and the city in which you live will be visible on the site. If we are sampling products or asking for feedback on advertising or new initiatives, your responses will be collated so that we can share your opinions with the companies that sell those products. However, your personal details, including your name, address and email will not be shared with anyone outside of Buchanan Group, unless you opt to share some of your details with fellow members. For further details about your personal information, please see our Privacy Policy.

We offer consumers products to try under our “Home Tested” tab.

Check our website and Facebook page regularly to see if trials have opened up. We’ll also send an email to members whose profiles suggest the product trial may be a fit for them or to the wider database for products with broad interest.
