I got a few cracker jack toys to test, the best of which was a lock blade knife that was a joke. I knew from experience that others of the make were crap but tested it anyways and it was worse than expected.
I never had to pay any testing fees but never got anything like the magazines show for testing either. As far as membership bonuses I got a few little knick-knacks and even something with the name Cable monogrammed on it.
I used to like thumbing through the magazine but they just seem to send me more junk than what I can return before they bill me for it.
