Recently I received a Sample and Share opportunity from Old Navy via Crowdtap. I was able to sample Old Navy's new activewear line. I am in love with the new line. For me it is all about the details. I loved all of the thoughtful additions to the activewear. Some of my favorite details were the thumb holes on the jackets, the little zippered pockets on the pants and tops that are perfect for a couple of keys or a few dollars, and the strips of reflective material on the bottom of the legging. All of these detail were really handy additions to the active wear.
If you haven't heard of Crowdtap yet here is a little overview.

Also, the points you earn determine your “level” and each level you obtain gives you privileges on the site and showcases your accomplishment. However, keep in mind that points and dollars are completely separate in Crowdtap. Points will help you level up, unlock badges, and compete with your friends while moving up the leaderboard. Dollars translate to real money and can be redeemed for Amazon gift cards or donated to your selected charity. Individual actions can earn you points, dollars, or both but points and dollars are not directly related to one another.
