A couple of days ago I wrote about BzzAgent, a product testing business which awards you with Tesco Clubcard points in return for testing new consumer products and writing reviews and social media posts about them.  The business is a Tesco subsidiary.

Tesco runs a similar business called The Orchard.  This is focussed on testing new Tesco products, experiences and services in return for keeping the products and receiving Clubcard points on top.

The Orchard at Tesco

The Orchard at Tesco website is here and it has a sign-up page.

As with BzzAgent, I don’t have much feedback from members as to how good or bad it is.  If you are a member, please let us know.  One member commented in my BzzAgent piece that The Orchard is a better programme – possibly because Tesco is genuinely seeking your views (you are reviewing their own products) instead of effectively selling your time to third-party manufacturers.

If you have the time to get involved then it might turn out to be interesting as well letting you pick up a few extra Avios along the way.

    I agree with SM. The point-earning opportunities of Orchard are fairly minimal (unless you really want to sell Tesco to your social media ‘friends’, which I don’t. However, every couple of months you can get £5-ish of coupons for various products in exchange for filling in a short survey and writing a short review at the end of it – you don’t actually need to do any social media unless you want to. I quite like a freebie so am quite happy to put in the very small amount of time required. The products, as others have said, are generally quite broad – for things from a particular range (eg finest cheese) rather than specific products.
    All in, I have found this much more rewarding than the avios-earning Rewards for Thoughts and the like, which seem to ask me dozens of questions before telling me that I don’t qualify for the points-earning survey.
