Broken Computer

Great Coffee Good Vibes Pass It On

Hey guys, I'm a BzzAgent... So, I received some FREE K-Cup's in the mail to try!!! I'm not that big of a coffee drinker, and since my husband is away at work, It took be a bit to drink them up... Okay... okay... So, I have a couple left, but I've bought other ones, or received some FREE via my FREE SAMPLES (check out my other blogs), but... It was PRETTY GOOD!!!

They don't pay me to voice my opinion, I just say what I Feel about a product... No lies... If I don't like it, then I'll tell ya. If my kids, family, friends, husband, don't like the product, then I'll let you know as well... They don't care what I say about the product, as long as I'm Respectful, Honest, and that I let people know the 411!!!

Being a BzzAgent has been pretty fun, and I've been able to try some cool things, and some pretty useful things as well!!... Here's what they have listed on their website about being a BzzAgent...

We’re an international network of consumers who voluntarily participate in word-of-mouth (WOM) programs for a variety of products and services. Basically, we’re a community of communicators.

It’s what we call word of mouth. It’s what we all do every day. It’s the sharing of honest opinions about a product or service between two or more people both online and offline.

The short answer: try products and services, then share your honest opinions about them with people you know. The “won’t fit in a tweet” answer: we find the products and brands that you’ll love and give you a way to experience them, then you share your thoughts about them by starting natural, genuine conversations with real-life friends and online buds via sites including Facebook, Twitter and blogs. You get to try awesome products, your friends get to learn about awesome products and awesome products get even awesomer by listening to your valued feedback. Oh, and did we mention the better you participate, the more awesome products you’ll get to try? Awesome!
