Have you heard of the Media Insiders Panel?  I have been a member of this panel for some time now and I have to say it is the easiest $5 dollars I have ever made.  Media Insiders panel is a research panel interested in understanding how people view, use and share today's media, including digital, mobile, TV and social media. Our research focuses on the most popular technologies used by consumers today. Currently MI is accepting users with the following devices: Android smartphones and tablets that run Android version 4.0 or greater, and are not rooted.They also accept the Kindle Fire HD, but not the first generation Kindle Fire and iPhone®5, iPad®iPad mini®, and iPod touch® devices (the 3rd generation ipod touch requires an external microphone, I found one on amazon for $2)  that run iOS version 5.0 or greater. Although it only references iphone5, I have it installed on my 4S and receive my monthly incentives without fail.

"To qualify for member benefits, you just install, activate and continuously run the MI Mobile app — a small application that enables us to understand how smartphones and other devices are used." It's super easy to install the app and their customer service has always provided a prompt reply for any questions.  
The program works as follows:

  • Forward this entire email message to your friends and family (age 13 and over).
  • Ask them to click on the link below where they will be brought to the Media Insiders website. To qualify for  referral rewards, you must use the link in this email message:
  • Click this link to join, which has a unique referral code and makes you eligible for the referral program as well.
  • Friends and family will then click on the Join Now button, complete the registration process and follow the directions to download and activate the MI Mobile App.
  • This exclusive link is available for up to 10 people to join as part of the referral program. After the ten people have been met, the link will still work but you will not be eligible to receive the referral email yourself. 
  •  In order to earn your rewards, friends and family will need to download the MI Mobile App and keep it running on their device for at least 20 days within their first four weeks of membership.

Once you have joined and your device has logged 20 days of data, you will receive a referral email to pass along to your friends and family to earn up to 10 Tango cards for referrals.  It is required to leave the app running (do not close it out) at all times.  The app runs silently in the background and does not require any interaction on your part. The other great thing is you can install the app on up to three different devices and you will receive a $5 Tango card for each device monthly, you just need to use a different email address for each device..  

I love receiving Tango cards so I have the option to choose whatever giftcard I would like and can choose different cards each month.  This is a great way to bank some Amazon giftcards and use as fun money or gift shopping.  When you chose your giftcard through Tango, you will receive and email the next day (I've sometimes received the same day) with your actual giftcard code.  I've only ever requested Amazon cards and have received the code and bank them into my account seamlessly. I would love it if you would leave a comment once you have joined using my link so I can keep track and update this post.

I will be posting another great app which operates the same as MI.  You can earn monthly Amazon gift cards and don't require any effort on your part.

Recently I had the opportunity to sample the new Ivory 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash in the refreshing scent.  I was the first in the family to give it a try.  I found the scent to be fresh and light, not overpowering, but just right.  The scent made me think of a tropical island, standing in one of those outdoor showers with a nice warm breeze blowing.  All I needed to complete the picture was a handsome cabana boy bringing me a frozen Mai Tai. After snapping back to reality, I noticed the texture/viscosity to be very creamy. But, it did not leave any type of oily or greasy feeling after rinsing.  Since this is a body and hair wash, I gave it a shot on  my hair.  I have naturally wavy/frizzy hair.  I did not like the feel of my hair after rinsing the product out and after drying I found my hair to be on the dry side.  My recommendation would be, if using this as a shampoo, to not forgo conditioner if you usually use it.  I did however love the way it left my skin feeling.  I have dry skin and wanted to see how this would perform with out using lotion or body oil after my shower.  I am very happy to say that it exceeded my expectations! My skin was not dry in appearance or touch. Omitting the lotion step in my daily routine will speed things along in the morning. My husband and children also liked the product.  My husband liked the way his skin felt and found it to be a good replacement shampoo. 

I only wish that, when I received my product to sample, it had come with coupons to share, but it did not.  You can however, find this in your local retailers bath/body department very reasonably priced. If streamlining your morning routine and show clutter are on your list of to-do's, then give this product a try.  I think you will enjoy the results.

Check out Ivory's facebook page here for more information on their products and you can also watch this short video and see how it might simplify your families shower routine. Overall, I give the product an A-, simply becuse I will still need the conditioner bottle in the shower for my hair.
