Can anyone tell me if Viewpoint Sampling is Legit? I received a email stating I was selected to test a 12 piece TFal Set and ask to confirm my shipping address. Does this email look legit?

There is a Viewpoint but I am unaware of the "sampling."

I would e-mail Julie Owens, she has always returned replies quickly.

Julie Owens <julie@viewpointforum.com>

Plus, your posting states Aug 08 and tomorrow is the 15th.. Double check. Would be nice to receive the cookware.

I agree with Scrappy02, email Julie Owens. I belong to Viewpoint Forum, but I've never heard of Viewpoint Sampling.

i think you are referring to viewpoints sampling. they have occasional product tests in exchange for reviews but are primarily a review database. their site is:

From the OP;

Please also confirm your shipping address is correct as stated below.

Was your address included in their email to you and was it right?

Yes, they always include the shipping address for you to confirm when you reply back to them letting them know you are still interested in the sampling.
I didn't get the 12pc cookware to sample but I have a very expensive clothes Iron to sample and review on the way!

Quote :
Hi XXXXXXXXXX

Thank you for confirming your participation in sampling the XXXXXX Iron.

Your product is scheduled to ship within the next two week. Once it does, I will be providing shipping information as well as instructions on how to write your review.

Thanks again!

Best,
Kendall

OK, good. That means if they had her correct address on file and in the email, than she had been in contact with them before and should consider this a legit deal.

More then likely OP signed up with them a while back and didn't remember. Their testing is not as frequent and no incentive other then you get to keep whatever it is you're testing after posting your review. I can vouch for them.They are legit and have done a few tests with them.
