At Bolt & Stone we strive to improve on the composition, design and on our product line - all from a customer point of view. The Power User Program was created so we could more directly engage with our customers (you) and learn how we can do better. Particularly for our newly released products we offer a limited supply of free test samples in exchange for early feedback. This helps us better gauge market response and helps us identify any improvements we might want to make early on. We also encourage Power Users to share their reviews publicly to help inform prospective buyers about what they can expect from new Bolt & Stone products.
Power Users are individuals who not only appreciate free products, they're pioneers who enjoy testing, giving feedback and sharing helpful suggestions to our product, marketing and customer service teams. They also enjoy sharing their experiences with other prospective buyers.
Power Users can apply for free Bolt & Stone products to review and keep up to 6 times every year (this is calculated 12 months from your first product request). Selections will vary to reflect our product focus, but, Power Users may choose according to their own interest - there's no obligation to receive or review an undesired product.
Power Users also receive regular exclusive discounts on Bolt & Stone products and have the opportunity to get bonus gifts after helping us complete surveys.
Power Users are expected to test and provide their detailed, unbiased feedback on the test sample within one week of receiving the product. If circumstances prevent a Power User from doing so, the Power User is expected to provide advanced feedback. Delayed feedback may impact eligibility to apply for future Bolt & Stone products.
Power Users are also expected to assist by completing surveys that help us improve our branding, marketing, product or overall brand image.
If, for whatever reason, a Power User is in need of assistance during the testing, they are encouraged to contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
