Love to read your post here. As a Chinese reader from China, the words from your post are better than those official page provided by amazon for me. lol…. I haven`t selling on amazon yet(I own an individual online store: itead.cc), but it will come soon. Your post is helpful for me to sell my products on amazon in the future. But now, there is also exist one question in my brain, that is how to let reviewers write something for my online site. Because I also want to my site get more visitors. Could you help me with this? If your could tell me some sites or blog for products, I will much appreciated for your help. Many Thanks!
The comments are interesting but most are incorrect if they believe that all discounted reviews are shill. I just received a request from an Amazon partner to do discounted item (for my honest revie). I though,t well if they think they are buying stars from me they are very wrong. I have no incentive to give bad or good reviews artificially. I don’t get anything extra. So people that paint a negative brush are quite wrong. It matters more to me to be honest because I buy items there at full price and don’t want to be fooled. Think about this too. Send it back. It’s easy as that. It’s a pain, but the situation isn’t all fake.. Common sense tells you that Amazon would nosedive.if this was the case.
I signed up for Toluna yesterday and qualified for a free product on my second survey. I just picked one of the shorter survey suggestions they emailed to me and it paid off. Thank you for recommending these sites! I heard about Pinecone Research and was thankful to receive the link on your blog. When I went to sign up it took me to productreportcard.com. Is this the right website? I was accepted in, but I don’t see the name Pinecone Research anywhere on the site. Also, do you know if ProductTestingUSA.com is a legitimate website?
Great article, but I did not set up reviews as all my items are one of a kind antique etc and when it is sold it is removed is there a way to set up reviews for the store or web site? Any suggestions?
In other words: Unless you have a way to confirm with the person (or company) writing the review, or you are Amazon, it’s all conjecture. Keep in mind that these analyses are based on Fakespot’s techniques, so we have to take their word for it. We don’t have a way to verify how precise they are. However, you can make educated guesses. And if you’re in a hurry or in need of a second opinion, Fakespot can be a useful tool when you’re considering a purchase.
Yes with BzzAgent you do get points you can use on MyPoints.com to use your points on getting free merchandise. I actually never spend my points and just let it expire since all I care about with BzzAgent is getting the free products to test.
You have to act quickly, however, as they go incredibly fast. Most of the items listed won’t go above $30 at full retail value, but it’s pretty easy to snag a few decent products for only $1 – $2 dollars.

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!
We sometimes use affiliated links which may result in a payment following a visitor taking action (such as a purchase or registration) on an external website. This helps keep Save the Student free. The user experience shouldn’t be any different, and our editorial decision making is not effected by such links.
So if you want to be considered, avoid leaving extremely brief reviews. Avoid complaining about something in the product that is clearly stated in the description. Think about the questions you were asking yourself before you took the plunge and ordered that $200 gadget that you knew you didn’t need but really, really wanted.
They have a huge marketplace supporting reviewers in 12 countries. And a contest they run each week giving away a $25 voucher. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China.
I reported this violation to Amazon. They said they will not intervene. So beware when you post your coupons on this site or any site that does not allow you to screen the reviewers. It is your responsibility to protect yourself. No one will do it for you. I learned my lesson the hard way.
Now, let’s assume am an Amazon shopper and I want to get free products. But I don’t know which sellers out of the thousands of sellers on Amazon will give me their product for free in exchange for my review. I could contact them directly, but this would be time-consuming again, who know who many will actually give me their product.
Liz, they don’t pay for every product. But with some products, they will send you a survey after a few weeks of you using the product, and if you answer those surveys, you will get paid a small amount.
New offers are emailed directly to your inbox every day and you can also browse the savings on their website. Other websites might offer more products on a daily basis, but, ProductTesting.co seems to offer quality items from a variety of product categories.
There are good ways to operate other than what is the “Amazon” way and what has been done for the last 20 years. Hire people who have different backgrounds and different opinions to enhance the culture and add diversity of thought.
Fakespot is part of the Amazon affiliate program. They get paid after you check an item then click the link to go back and purchase that or anything else in the next 24 hours. They have ZERO credibility and don’t even disclose they are an affiliate partner which is against FTC regulations!
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.
Ilovetoreview.com gives you free and reduced priced items almost every day through amazon.com as long as you agree to review them. If you fail to submit your review within a certain amount of time you wont be able to recieve any more products. I have gotten everything from cookware to beauty products all full size complete products in exchange for my reviews.
I accidentally stumbled upon this and people who do reviews on Amazon and not part of the precious vine elite (and I never felt that way until tonight) are called liars and people with no integrity or morals. I posted a question as to why people getting discounts to review are not honest and isn’t a discount or free product from one just like taking a discount or free product from another. That was a huge mistake, and I don’t say this lightly. I was bombarded with the most vile humiliating replies. I was called names and told I was just a couponer wanting to get anything I could. Which I might say is far from the truth. I have only accepted offers or codes for items I have wanted to compare to products I am using or accepted a code for an item I truly have wanted. I know some will not always be honest as they should so they will get offers, I am not one of them. I want a product that works. I also respect others and would not want to mislead others. Yet tonight I wanted to close my Amazon account and never buy on that site again. I’ve been a prime member for years with the Amazon Fire tv box, the works of all Amazon offers.
If you buy frequently from Amazon, then you’ll want to visit camelcamelcamel.com to track specific items on your list. The site will let you know as soon as prices drop on Amazon so you can time your purchase to get the best deal.
Did you know that you can receive FREE and DEEPLY DISCOUNTED products from many companies, simply by agreeing to leave them a review on Amazon? Yes, it really is that easy! The companies will provide you with a coupon code to use at checkout to get the discount on the item up for review (most of the time the products are 100% free or $1). Shipping is free if you have Prime although we have seen free shipping from time to time for non Prime members. After you receive your item be sure to leave your review so you’ll be eligible for more offers!
An avid fan of the original E.V.O. Search For Eden, Spore is a wonderful game, that just doesn’t work well for later models of Windows unfortunately. Despite filtering through forums for solutions, nothing ever let me play this game again.
The whole point of the Vine program is to get early reviews; that’s what vendors pay Amazon for (and it’s not cheap to get your product in the Vine program). But I, too, update reviews when something goes wrong, sometimes six months after the initial review.
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.
I finally remembered to respond to this! I just wrote this email to a Seller. They reached out to me with something I wasn’t interested in, so I found an item in their store I was interested in reviewing (and had a need for.) The URL to the product has been redacted, but you get the point.
What’s slightly ironic about all of this is that Amazon made a major push at the end of last year to clean up its reviews system. Until October of 2016, Amazon reviews were glutted with reviews from what was informally known as Amazon review clubs. The review clubs worked like this: You’d sign up, get a free or heavily discounted product, whether it was an egg-cracker or a queen-size mattress, and in exchange you’d post a review. You just had to include words to the effect of “I received this product at a discount/for free in exchange for my honest review” somewhere in your review. It was an ideal ecosystem for many. Consumers got items on the cheap. Sellers got five-star reviews (the “honest” part was largely lip service; Ooi of Fakespot says anyone who didn’t post five-star reviews would quickly find themselves iced out of the review club). The person running the review club could charge sellers for access to customers.
