Have you heard of House Party? This company selects thousands of people across the country to host parties to promote products, events, etc. Each event is sponsored by a particular brand and focuses on something the sponsor wants to share with its fans firsthand and to help spread the word (usually focuses on a new product or a tv event, etc).
I have hosted one for Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Kraft about a year ago...lots of coupons to give away, plus recipe cards and some other goodies.
Over the summer I was selected to host one for the tv premier of the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place movie...my daughter was thrilled and invited her friends over for the premier. And Disney provided a bunch of awesome giveaways for the girls.
Yesterday I received a box of goodies for the latest House Party I have been selected to host in January. This one is for author Kristin Hannah to celebrate the release of her upcoming novel, Winter Garden.
If you like to try new things, receive samples and coupons and freebies, and get together with friends, you definitely need to check out House Party!
(Sign up to receive emails when they open up new events looking for hosts/hostesses. And be patient...it may take applying for a few before you get selected. )
