Tell us about your family and where you live!
I’ve been a Chicago suburbanite my entire life (with the brief exception of a central Illinois stint at Bradley University). I currently live with my boyfriend, and we are venturing on the hunt for our first home.

What do you like about being a Smiley member?
I love my Smiley membership, because I get to give my unbiased opinions (and I have a lot of them!) on new or re-branded products and services. Of course, free stuff is always a perk!

What has been your favorite Smiley360 mission you’ve ever done and why?
My favorite mission was the VitaCraves Gummy Vitamin Mission. It was my first big mission and I was really excited to get a bottle of gummy vitamins. I still use them to this day.

Tell us all about how you share when you’re on a Smiley360 mission!
I post on Facebook and Twitter, then I usually put a link in my IM status. Additionally, I chat with friends and family about the missions, especially when I’m using or sharing my sweet freebies!

Do you think it is important for brands to listen to their customers?
Absolutely. If the brands don’t listen to their customers, they aren’t doing their jobs!

What’s the one piece of technology you cannot live without?
I have been known to dub myself the Empress of the Internet…and I can’t imagine life without the instant connection to the world that is “the internet.” Being able to communicate with friends and family around the world is one of the greatest magic tricks ever!

What products do you always have in your grocery store shopping cart?
Cheese! No, seriously, at any given time, I’ve got 10-15 different types of cheese in my refrigerator. It’s not a problem; it’s a foodie adventure.

Meet Kacie, a Smiley360 member from Idaho!

Tell us about your family and where you live!
I am a mom (of two amazing kids) and a wife. I have lived in Idaho my whole life till last year when we sold everything and headed to North Dakota for work. It was a big move but has been well worth it.

What do you like about being a Smiley360 member?
I love being a member of Smiley360 because of the amazing group of people I get to interact with and the great products we receive!!

What has been your favorite Smiley360 mission so far?
My favorite mission so far has to be the PAM Cooking Spray Mission. I am in the kitchen cooking three plus meals a day so it was right up my alley.

How do you share your experience when on a Smiley360 mission?
I share my experiences through social media (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest), also email, face to face and on the phone to all my family and friends back home.

What’s the one gadget you cannot live without?
The one gadget I cannot live without would have to be my, oh gosh this is a hard one but I guess my electric can opener. I know, sad but if you saw my old can opener you would know why.

What product do you always have in your grocery store shopping cart?
One product I always have in my shopping cart is Oreos. My family goes bananas for Oreo cookies and they are a great little pick me up on those crazy days.

We spoke to Louisiana resident and iPhone-addict Ashley about her Smiley membership!

Tell us about your family and where you live!
I live in Hammond, Louisiana with my boyfriend and our 3 ½ year old female pug named Suzuki. She’s so cute and she’s like a child to me and I love her. I’m originally from New Orleans but I moved to Hammond, LA to continue my education after receiving my Associates Degree in May of 2010. I have an older brother that lives in Atlanta and a younger sister that lives in Washington, D.C.

What do you like about being a Smiley360 member?
I enjoy being able to talk with others about programs and products, getting to try other products and share information with friends and family. It’s not just about receiving the products to try – I enjoy connecting with other Smiley360 members.

What has been your favorite Smiley360 mission so far?
My favorite mission so far has been the Snuggle mission. I enjoyed telling everyone about the mission and receiving the Snuggle in the mail and getting to try it out. I even let my neighbor who is one of my best friends try some of the Snuggle and she loved it just as I did. Hearing me talk about the Smiley360 program inspired her to sign up as a member.

How do you share your experience when on a Smiley360 mission?
I tell all of my friends and some coworkers, mostly when I’m out to dinner with them and some through text messages and speaking with some on the phone. My friends enjoy listening to me tell them about the Smiley360 program. The Facebook and Twitter app for Smiley360 has helped me to share my experience with friends as well.

What’s the one gadget you cannot live without?
The one gadget I cannot live without is my iPhone- I love love love my iPhone! It is like my handheld computer and personal assistant. It helps keep me organized and up-to-date with everything, especially important emails from school and friends. If I did not have my iPhone I would have to walk around with a planner and check it constantly to make sure I am not forgetting anything.

What product do you always have in your grocery store shopping cart?
The product I always have in my grocery store shopping cart is the Lays Kettle Cooked Jalepeno Chips- these chips taste so good and they’re addictive! I can’t eat just a few of these and be satisfied, which is why when I got to the store every week, I pick up one or two bags.

Tell us about your family and where you live!
I am a single mother. I have 4 children but only one left at home. I have lived in many places but for the past 19 years I have lived in Murfreesboro, TN -right below Nashville.

What do you like about being a Smiley360 member?
I became a member of Smiley360 because I lost my job and wanted to do something with my unused time. I stayed a member of Smiley360 because I love trying new products, and I love to talk. So now I talk about new products for Smiley360.

What has been your favorite Smiley360 mission so far?
Hard to pick a favorite but if I have to pick a favorite I would say Zatarains. Our family loves Zatarains products and did not know about the frozen meals. I don’t think there is a mission I didn’t like. I hope to see more missions that involve all family members.

How do you share your experience when on a Smiley360 mission?
I mostly share with my family, my coupon friends, and my online yardsale friends.

What’s the one gadget you cannot live without?
I can’t live without my smartphone. I am harassed all the time about it. I washed and dried it once I was without it almost a week. Worst week ever! It can only be topped with an iPad 2 (a great mission idea wink wink!)

What product do you always have in your grocery store shopping cart?
Cereal- the answer to a teenager that is hungry 10 times a day. Oh and of course star crunch. And for me, coffee!

Tell us about your family and where you live!

I’m a loving mother of three beautiful children and married to the best husband a wife could ask for. We always try to do a lot of family activities, like going to the park, watching movies together and having a family game night. I was born and raised in Ohio, a very pleasant state to live in.

What do you like about being a Smiley360 member?

I love being a member of Smiley 360, for I get to try and learn about new products that I have never tried before and get to share what I think about these products with friends, family and neighbors. It makes me feels special to be part of Smiley 360. I’m proud to be a part of this group of members. They are helpful and the staff is very helpful and quick to answer any questions that I have. I just love learning new things and with Smiley 360 this is where this happens.

What has been your favorite Smiley360 mission so far?

This is hard for they have all been great! I would have to pick the New Pam Cooking Spray, for I was sent the greatest gifts with this mission. The dish was so beautiful and I needed one – what a plus. I was so surprised when I heard that Pam had been improved, for I always thought it was very good, but when I redeemed my free coupon and used it, I was just amazed. It made cleaning dishes a breeze and made baking food more enjoyable, for nothing stuck to the dish I used. So it was great to tell everyone about this and I still use it and plan to keep using the new improved Pam.

How do you share your experience when on a Smiley360 mission?

I use the sharing tools for Facebook and Twitter to spread the good news about a mission I’m on. I tell my friends, family and neighbors in person and report back about it using the Face2Face tool. I want to start blogging about them too. I thought about opening an account with YouTube and share this way also. When I get my next mission I will use these new ideas to share with.

What’s the one gadget you cannot live without?

The one gadget I could not live without would have to be my computer. That is how I found Smiley 360!! I also use it to shop, email friends, play games, watch TV, and use a calendar to keep up with my to do list of chores.

What product do you always have in your grocery store shopping cart?

That would have to be salad!

Tell us about your family and where you live!

I’m a stay-at-home mom in West Jordan, Utah. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for almost 7 years now, and have a beautiful 7-month old baby girl! Before I had my baby, I was an elementary school teacher for 6 years. This has been quite a change!

What do you like about being a Smiley360 member?

I love being a Smiley360 member because it gives me a chance to try new things, and then to help get the word out about them if it’s something I really love.

What has been your favorite Smiley360 mission so far?
My favorite mission was the Durex mission. So naughty, and so fun! That party was pretty darned memorable!

How do you share your experience when on a Smiley360 mission?
First I always tell my husband what I’m up to. Then I usually chat with my mom and sister. If it’s something I love, I’ll put up a glowing Facebook post. I might even have a party to share the product!

What’s the one gadget you cannot live without?
My new iPad, which I got for Christmas. I didn’t even know I wanted one, but now I don’t know what I’d do without it! I use it to easily check all my email accounts, take surveys, play games (I admit, Angry Birds is pretty fun!), listen to music, Google things on a whim… I even use the Baby Flash Cards app to practice animal sounds with my baby girl, which she thinks is pretty hilarious.

What product do you always have in your grocery store shopping cart?
I’m a vegetarian, so most of my cart is fresh produce every week. Some of my favorite splurges are Tillamook yogurt (which makes me feel a little virtuous and healthy) and Cheetos (which makes me feel pretty naughty and unhealthy!) I also always get Silk soymilk–it makes great protein smoothies!
