The best perk I've received as a mom blogger is ______________.

Mom bloggers are constantly getting treated like online royalty from receiving free products for review, getting exclusive discounts and giveaway opportunities and even being flown all over the country for corporate trips. What is the best perk you've ever received as a mom blogger?

My wife got a 2010 Chevy Malibu... I got a 50th Anniversary Edition of Green Eggs and Ham. You can see who wears the blogging pants in my family.
I was invited by CAbi to view their fall fashion show in California. They paid for my airfare, hotel, and I also received an allowance to purchase CAbi clothes.

I've also received an HP iPAQ Smart Phone with AT&T service for a month, however I no longer use it because I have Verizon.
If you join networks, and get email contacts for products you can get perks ASAP! I was reviewing in my first month on my blog!

That all sounds FABULOUS!! Nothing for me yet I just started out. But I would like to hear how long it took before you got your first perk.

Wanted you to send the vacuum back??? What in the world!?!?!

Oreck wanted to send me an upright vacuum and three swabbing kits so I could test my home before and after, send the kits to the lab, and write about it. After sending the vacuum back.

At Xmas, a battery company sent five toys and a boat load of batteries from their brand plus two competitors. They wanted me to test each brand in each toy for five hours and see which performed better. Five toys, three sets of batteries, five hours... I gave the toys to a shelter.
Wow! These are so impressive. I hope I can add to this list in the future!
Hmm, nothing was ever just handed to me. I've contacted every company personally thus far.

2 refrigerator magnets from sticky life
1 month free meal planning from E-Mealz

Um...I think that's it.

Of course, I also got a paid writing gig out of it...so that has been the most amazing perk so far (and would be really really hard to beat)
Hot leather boots.
But because I blog about lingerie, my bra drawer is quite full.
Hmm I have two blogs so the types of products I get vary quite a bit. For my fashion blog I'd have to say nail polish and lingerie are my two favorites. For my overworked mom blog, I'd say a yogurt maker some really fun DVDs. I'd love to be noticed by some of the big brands but it hasn't happened yet. I am starting to get a number of PR requests so I can only hope it happens soon.
Wow! I'm going to have to start blogging about jewelry or some other great material item. lol

I've been to four press junkets now and gotten to take part in roundtable interviews. Despicable Me (Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Miranda Cosgrove, Julie Andrews), Charlie St. Cloud (Zac Efron), Chronicles of Narnia (Georgie Henley and Will Poulter), and Gulliver's Travels (Jack Black, Jason Segel, and Emily Blunt).

Though I suppose these count more as my other job than MY blog. I'm still talking about it on my blog though. ;)

As the other said, it's super fun...but doesn't pay.

Okay...seriously? The friends I have made:) AWWWWW I know. I like people. I can't help it.

I have two, as I have only received so much thus far. I received four movie tickets, which was much needed because we probably would have never went. And a sexy toy from eden fantasies, it was a little awkward to blog about it, I didn't even have to go into detail but it took me awhile to write about it
