Q-insights Online Community regarding TV and Media


Q-insights is another company where I do research groups, focus groups, and online surveys to earn extra money.

They have a lot of stuff in South Orange County, and less often San Diego County. This upcoming survey takes place virtually!

Q-Insights is currently recruiting for an online interview on the topic of  TV and Media.

They are looking for males and females ages 18-70 who would be interested in participating in an ongoing online community regarding television and media including streaming services.
There will be various surveys available to take that will compensate you.

Participating in this online community will not prevent you from participating in any in-person or online focus groups you would normally participate in.

If you are interested, please complete the pre-screener survey here. 

Celebrate Paramount+’s Birthday With a Great Deal!

We don’t have cable, and our antenna isn’t strong enough to pick up the local CBS affiliate. So when we found out that we can get Paramount+ for $5.99/month with limited commercials or $9.99 per month for commercial-free, we jumped on the chance.

Paramount+ has shows from CBS, Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, and much more. They also have Original shows like Lower Decks (a family favorite).

I’ve been digging Evil lately, which, yes is cheesy, but it keeps me off the streets at night.

If you haven’t signed up yet, check this sweet deal: Celebrate Paramount+’s birthday with $1/month subscriptions for the first 3 months! Hurry, this offer won’t last long! Use code BIRTHDAY at checkout.

Looking to cut the cord/ditch the dish? Here is my post from a few years ago going over how we do it!

New Preschool Programming: Cartoonito’s Birthday Party

Do you have preschool-age kiddos? WarnerMedia Kids & Family is inviting all preschoolers, parents, caregivers, and educators across the country to enjoy a free VIP virtual birthday party for Cartoonito, a new preschool block launching on HBO Max and Cartoon Network.

The one-hour interactive event coined as “Nito’s Birthday Party,” will take place at on Monday, Sept. 13 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET and will feature exciting sneak peeks, breaking news, and special guest appearances from the stars and creative teams behind upcoming Cartoonito shows. RSVP to the VIP experience HERE.

This looks pretty exciting. I love educational cartoons. Even though my kiddos are older, I sometimes put on educational cartoons on the TV when we are doing crafts or building legos in the living room as background noise. You’d be surprised how much kids brains suck up when they have their hands occupied. We have HBO Max, so I’ll be putting on Cartoonito in the next few weeks while we are painting rocks (the next requested craft).
