You can test eight different types of their products ranging from cleanser to moisturizer to sunscreen. Most products cost $1.95 each after you use the discount code sent to you by email. It is free to join the Oz Naturals VIP email list.
The Chinese are, in this respect, reprehensible. A while ago, students at a Chinese high school rioted because the administrators had severely cracked down on cheating. Why were the students mad? Because they claimed that they would be at a severe competitive disadvantage with the other schools, where the cheating was left intact. This is the poisoned fruit that falls from the tree down to us.
Have you ever gone to a play and gave a standing ovation at the end? You have, right? And chances are you didn’t start the standing O. It’s unlikely you were even the third or fourth to stand. Chances are you stood up and clapped like a seal only when it was clear that an ovation trend had started. This is the power of social proof.

You know what, I should have come back and update my comment. I checked my profile and found that my email address was incorrect. The only offers I had previously received were from people who made comments on my reviews. At any rate, I fixed my incorrect email address and have more than a dozen in the last 2 days. Some are items I can use and would like (a travel pack, a passport wallet that holds your ID and CCs) and I passed on (an i-watch band, since I don’t own an Apple Watch).
I tried Uberzon club however after attempting to purchase at least 30 offers I have yet to get a single one to accept the promo-code provided in the emailed offer. I am informed each time that the code is invalid. This is true even when attempting to purchase immediately after receiving the email, therefore not caused by the limit of available offers having been filled. It’s a bit disappointing as I thought the club was a really great way to try out new products. I’ll try a few more of these, thanks to your amazing list. Hoping I’ll find one that is what it claims. Thanks for the info!
as a result of my experiences in the last year or two, i generally no longer trust amazon enough to purchase items sold or fulfilled by them. instead, if i need to purchase something from a smaller manufacturer that i find on amazon, i now go directly to their own website, if they have one, where i can be sure i’m getting the real thing and there is an assurance of quality and accountability.”
I’ve questioned if I should email and we discuss this directly, but then I decided that if I include it here, perhaps it will help someone else in the future. I have edited out the specifics about the product and the code, etc.
Welcome to FeedbackExpress’ weekly round-up of the top five stories from the world of Amazon and ecommerce. Amazon is in talks to launch checking accounts: Carleton English at The New York Post reports that Amazon
What about Offerbucks ? It’s suppose to be a site that offers you money for doing offers. I looked at a site that gave it a 99% legit rating and it’s partnered with Product Testing USA, Just wasn’t sure if I should trust it.
If you want a good example of fake GOOD book reviews though, try looking at Ryan Holiday’s “Trust Me, I’m Lying.” And then read the “most helpful” (and practically sole) one-star review on the page. Hilarious.
I’m curious about the news that Amazon is suing over 1,000 individuals for posting fake reviews. Personally, I know I haven’t done anything wrong or illegal, but immediately thought about your blog and wondered your take on the whole thing. I’ll be honest, I don’t fully understand all the ins and outs of the lawsuit. I do believe the service you provide is great and informative. Anyone who follows your guidelines shouldn’t have anything to fear at all, but I am interested in anything you might have to say about the lawsuit.
Choose your link text wisely – It’s normal for people to link back to your website with link text that is simply your domain name (ex: http://mywebsite.com ). You should ask them to occasionally change the link text to the keywords that you want to rank for on the search engines. For example if you want to rank for “cheap widget” then your link text should be “cheap widget”.
One of the reasons why Amazon is such a popular online destination is that many products are accompanied by hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of product reviews from everyday consumers who can speak with first-hand authority to the merits of whatever item is being considered. As a result, consumers are able to make more informed shopping decisions and steer clear of items they might ultimately regret purchasing. Of course, with the Internet being what it is, Amazon’s vast library of product reviews are also filled with a good number of sarcastic, biting, clever, and downright hilarious responses. Some even speculate that these reviews may be responsible for Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ distinctive laugh.
I just signed up with amzrc.com, but I realize everytime I click on a deal to review a product in exchange for a discount, it takes me to the USA amazon website. I live in Canada. I am not sure if I can purchase any these deals without incurring border fees?
I will always write honest reviews and if that means I one day find that I am unable to get products, because I’ve rated too many negatively, then that’s what will happen and I’ll move on. Until then, if I can get a discount solely for writing an honest review, I will do so. I feel absolutely no sense of duty to use kid gloves on any product I get a discount on, because the rules are very clear; the reviews I am writing are to be honest. That is the only thing I owe the company, is an *honest* review.
I understand what you are saying with the FCC regulation, but Amazon reviews fall in the gray area. FCC is going after businesses that promote products. Bloggers, journalists, business Twitter and Facebook accounts, all must disclose if the article/post was in any way supported by another company looking to profit from it. I’ve read it and have yet to see anything specifically stating reviews fall in that category. The reviewer is not profiting from it the way a blogger or business does. I could be wrong and welcome anyone sending me a link to counter it.
I went through the registration process and after I did all of that it simply brought me to a page where I was asked to sign up for 2 other survey panels (which are legit because I use them myself) and then they said we will contact you if we have product testing opportunities. It seems like they are just trying to get you to sign up for those sites so they can get a commission, which there is nothing wrong with that, but pretending to be a product testing company and misleading people in order to make money off of them is not right.
The Chinese crap on Amazon is out of control. Not only the non-UL listed electronics, but the sweat-shop clothing that no ethical store would ever import (easily recognized by the measurements being in centimeters and the fractured explanations of how size XXL equals an American/European size S).
I have seen MANY “verified purchase reviews” on Amazon..the reviews make me think the reviewer received the product for FREE. Seriously, if i’m looking a sheet sets..I always see the reviews that state they wrote review in exchange for receiving the item “free or deeply discounted”. However, I have yet to come across ANY of these sites that send out products to customers “free of charge” in return for a review…so, I’m just curious if Amazon does that? Also, the sites i’ve been too that have products listed for sale…are usually cheap knockoffs of products like the ‘Fitbit’ or the many different kinds of ‘smart watch’. I have never-ever found one that offered nice sheet sets… cookware…beauty products…pet products, etc. It’s amazing how manipulative some companies can be now days through their advertising & online ads. smh
Did You Know: I was featured in Dr. Oz’s February 2014 issue of Dr. Oz’s The Good Life magazine, eBay’s blog discussing about me reviewing products and getting paid by these name brand companies, Woman’s World Magazine March 2016 issue, and First For Women Magazine April 2017 issue all about me testing products!
Amazon is the place where people can find essential items at good prices or profitably to sell their merchandize. This website has been helping out business owners and common folk for many years. Time for you to harness its potential and make profitable deals.
You’re suggesting that the big companies such as Lego, Otterbox, Disney and others have a monopoly. You’re not giving the little guy a chance… These websites are helping small businesses. Get yourself together and think outside of the box.
The one thing you have to take note of is that sometimes there are different rules for each specific product, so be sure to read them carefully. For example, instead of leaving a product review, they may require you to write a blog post about it instead.
Some of these Amazon reviewers make a living doing this – it’s serious business, and some may do as many as 100 reviews a month. Be prepared to offer your product for free in exchange for a review – depending on your product, this could be a pricey expenditure, so you’ll have to decide if this is a strategy you can afford.
The article makes no mention of clicking on the user name and seeing their review history. I clicked on a user yesterday, and she had a history of 16 reviews…all on the same day. Apparently TheWireCutter never thought of doing that. Unimpressed.
This is easy: don’t review 10 eye liners unless you want to asked to review a new eye liner. If you review only XBox games, then I would expect only XBox games companies to ask you to review their games. Your reviews are a portfolio of your interests, and expect suppliers to treat them that way.
The article has some good points but focuses a lot on fake reviews. More problematic in my opinion are the worthless reviews from real people who never actually used the product they got for free (or, nowadays, for a few pennies.) Or the Vine reviewer who eBays the products without opening the package – you can tell.
Hey Shannon! I would say, always complete the surveys the survey panels will send you to your email box. Some surveys will end up being a product test for you to do at home. Some people get a lot of products to test and some do not, it all depends on what the company is looking for to review their products.
The sellers with the most positive feedback tend to do the best on Amazon. Take control of your online reputation and reap the rewards of greater bottom line performance. Win the buy box more often and beat your competitors by maintaining a stellar Amazon seller rating.
When I used to use the site a few years back, they’d actually send out surveys after the products and you would get paid a few bucks if you took the survey. That was on top of getting the product. So maybe they changed somethings now. I haven’t used the site in a while.
This is a great article and as a person that does test sample products from amazon sellers I can say that I absolutely hate the fake reviews, it ruins the whole process. I take pride in my honest opinion and review of the products I test , I also update my review if something were to go wrong along the way with the item as well. Fake reviews just make it hard on those of us who are genuine and want to help the consumer get an idea of what they can expect from the product they’re looking at . I am one of the people that rely on word of mouth and honest reviews while shopping or looking at a business, it’s often what helps me decide .
