    The Orchard by Tesco Product Testing 26th Nov 13 at 10:10 AM
    Official MSE Insert:

    Hi, we've published a Product Testing guide. See if there are any you don't know about in there.

    Back to flubberyzing's original post...

    -----------

    Anyone joined up for this?


    I received an email invitation from them today.


    It looks exactly the same as Bzzagent to me... Perhaps they've decided to start doing it more "in house".


    Thoughts?

    I also have looked at the site and joined up. I am a member of their Home Testing Panel plus Shopper Thoughts. Is this a replacement for any of these sites? or is it an additional site for people to join.

    I'm a member of the shopper thoughts but don't find it that engaging tbh. Is it really worth it? Got the invite to The Orchard today- and yes agree very like Bzz Agent. Fingers crossed less people= more products!! x

    I am wondering if this will eventually replace bzz agent? Seems a bit silly if Tesco are going to run Bzz and Orchard when they seem to be doing the same thing?

    Yes probably.

    It is very much like BZZ, I just logged in and my score is 4.

    I really cant see them keeping both sites going unless this one will just be Tesco and BZZ Agent for anything branded like it used to be before Tesco bought them out.

    I've just signed up and answered their surveys - some of them are exactly the same ones I filled in for bzz a week or so ago.
    I wonder if this is a replacement for bzz using how much we post on facebook or tweet to set our score - didn't they try to change bzz score to be made like that but people complained and they changed it back?

    I couldn't load it, but can now.


    I rang Tesco to make sure it was genuine and reported the loading issue, as it is a beta test site.
