Get Paid to Share Your Health Experiences

Cash in on your health experiences! Savvy Cooperative pays patients for surveys, interviews, even product testing. Help shape the future of healthcare while earning extra money. No experience necessary, just real stories and valuable insights.

Get Paid to Do Good

I love supporting an organization that is not only founded by actual patients, but is also paying other patients for their time and insights. Knowing that my lived experiences and insight are valuable and can help shape products, services, and programs is a great feeling.

I’ll start by saying that this company is legitimate, and I have participated in paid studies for them. It might sound too good to be true, so I wanted to ensure I clarified this opportunity with the following.

I may receive a referral commission for any folks who complete studies. It takes nothing away from your compensation.

What is Savvy Cooperative

Savvy Cooperative is the first and only patient-owned co-op that empowers people to use their health experiences to inform new products and services through surveys, interviews, product testing and more. It was founded by two patients who wanted to make sure people who shared their health experiences were fairly compensated. That’s why we are patient-owned and the majority of our profits go right back to our members!
