Small Business Knowledge Center or SBKC, has thousands of panelists across the United States. They are in the process of learning about direct marketing trends and conduct year-round studies to learn more about this marketing technique used by many companies. They have two panels, one for consumers (consumers, small business owners or the self-employed) and one for producers (insurance agents, producers or financial advisors).

Earn Rewards for your Junk Mail!

Do you ever receive junk mail to your home or business? Imagine being rewarded for forwarding this mail! As a member of SBKC you will earn rewards for sending in your direct mail or email communications. It's that simple!

Two Unique Panels to Join

SBKC offers two exclusive panels to join. One for consumers (consumers, small business owners or self-employed) and one for producers (insurance agents, producers or financial advisors)

Consumer Panel

When you join the Consumer Panel you will be asked to forward all of your direct mail and email communication related to the following: Insurance, telecommunication, banking, credit cards, food & beverage, home improvement and over a dozen other categories. This panel also offers periodic mystery shopping surveys that earn you extra rewards.

Examples of the type of mail/emails you can forward to SBKC:

  • Insurance: Life, Health and Auto/Property
  • Banking: Money Market, Rewards or Loyalty Programs, Savings
  • Telecommunications: TV/Cable, Internet and Wireless Networks from AT&T or Verizon
  • Travel & Leisure: Airlines, Cruises and Rental services
  • Credit Cards
  • Mortgage and Loans: auto, home equity, mortgage, personal loan, etc.

How It Works

One you have determined what mail you would like to send into the SBKC, put it into the postage-paid envelopes and send it in once per week. With emails, simply forward them to: [email protected] after receiving them. There is no limit to how many materials you can send in.

Consumer Panel Compensation

Active participants of the Consumer Panel can earn as much as $20 in points every 6 to 10 weeks. Once you earn 2,000 points, you can request a Visa debit card. You will receive an email newsletter with your point balance on the 15th of each month. The e-newsletter may also contain bonus opportunities for panel members.

Producer Panel

If you are an insurance agent, producer or financial advisor, you may be eligible to join the Producer Panel with SBKC. As a Producer Panel member, you will be asked to collect any insurance materials you receive. Materials can regard any of the following topics: Annuities, Accidental Death, Auto, Critical Illness, Dental, Disability (STD, LTD), Group / Individual Health, Investments, Life (VUL, Term, etc.), Long Term Care, P&C, and Worksite Marketing. If you are involved in Financial Planning, Investment, Retirement, and Group Benefit Plan marketing information are also eligible materials to send in.

*Sales Kits, CDs, Software Updates, New Product Announcements, Sales Contests and other promo materials are special items that SBKC is particularly excited to study.

How it Works

Similar to the Consumer Panel, once you have determined what mail you would like to send into the SBKC, put it into the postage-paid envelopes and send in once per week. With emails, just forward after receiving directly to the Producer Panel email [email protected]. There is no limit to how many materials you can send in.

Producer Panel Compensation

Each time you send in direct marketing materials into SBKC you will receive an entry into the quarterly prize draw. Rewards may also come in other forms, depending on what type of audience section you are part of within the Producer Panel. You can learn more about compensation offers by calling 773-227-7454.

Eligibility: Residents of the United States only. 18+

Great Panel/Website

May 7, 2022 by Louanne from United States

I haven't been with this company long, but this is one of the easiest, friendliest sites out here, and help the environment too! Just email your advertisements received, and once a week post the physical advertisements you receive in the mail, postage and envelopes provided. Perfect for retirees. I haven't reached my payout yet but am very close. I couldn't be happier!

make your junk mail work for you

September 23, 2019 by Ann from United States

They pay reliably.

It doesn't take any more effort to send the mail and email that they ask for than it does to delete them or recycle them. And they told me that they recycle all the paper mail there.

And now when I get those annoying ads from cable companies and health insurance companies, I'm happy to see them.

They buy Junk Mail

May 18, 2017 by Jamesanthony from United States

I've been paid $30 once from them. They buy junk mail with extra incentives for certain types of mail.

Earn gift cards for providing them your junk snail and email plus certain other requested information. I have earned a $20 gift card about every other month since joining about a year and a half ago.
