“how do i review products for amazon -amazon product reviews free”

Hi Boris,No, it’s not the same. In the VINE program Amazon sends advanced product samples (before the product actually becomes available for sale on their site) to it’s top reviewrs. The reviews they leave are not counted as “verified purchases”, and thus they do not artificially inflate the product’s sales data, like your suggested method will. Many new merchants are using coupon codes to give away products for review, and most are getting away with it at the moment. It’s a big risk in my opinion, as it’s only a matter of time before Amazon says, “enough is enough”, and then clamps down on the practice (and possibly penalizes merchants who have done it in the past too). If you are planning on building a solid, long term sustainable business on Amazon, I’d advise against engaging in any practices that are not clearly acceptable. Stay healthy and stay out of the grey zone my friend! It’s not worth the risks! 🙂  

Thanks for the tips. I’ve actually been using personal information that’s close to mine so easy to remember but not really me. Real address though; haven’t figured out a convenient way around that one.

I’ve been successful in more than a few cases sending a nice email to some top reviewers, and in those instances received not only favorable reviews, but gained a fan for my books and a good network connection. I think it’s important to build relationships like that.

Even if you don’t manage your feedback in FeedbackFive, you can still sign up for an account to track product reviews. If you do that, you will have access to the “My Product Reviews” interface and will be able to see other pages, but we won’t import orders or send emails on your behalf. If you’re a FeedbackFive user already, “My Product Reviews” will appear in your dashboard’s sidebar. You can track two ASINs for free, or you can sign up for this enhancement to your account, which starts at $9.95 per month.

Since Amazon has basically outlawed the free-product-for-a-review practice, I actually found a different way to make product reviews work. On my site I did some research about the off-Amazon reviews I’ve done and how the product’s sales have increased as a result.

As mentioned in that post you are referring to, there are also a few other shoe companies, like Nike, that have product testing that US residents can participate in. Have you tried signing up for any of those?

Didn’t link to the FS analysis because I hadn’t checked it out myself, and any interested reader could find it on their own as easily as you or I. Nor did I link to the product because I had no intention of shilling it here. But if you’d like to check it out for yourself: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N6DC2ZE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Again, dunno how it compares to the Anker reviewed here earlier, they both have the the same specs regarding battery life and such. Seems like ones I bought might be less bulky/lighter, not sure.

Now this is certain a strange product. It’s just a pen, but it’s bizarrely advertised towards women. Bic’s product description reds: “A beautifully smooth ball pen designed specifically for women. The pink barrel has a great floral design that continues onto the metal cone. Super smooth Easy Glide ink & a cushioned grip make writing with this pen ultra comfortable!”

This is the online guerrilla marketing method of PR. There is a unique benefit of getting product reviews from other websites that helps increase brand credibility and trustworthiness in addition to word-of-mouth marketing.

Hi Tristan. Great information! I just wanted to underscore a sentence you wrote above regarding receiving payment post-review (I work in an industry where the payment based upon success of the product is frowned upon/illegal/immoral as well). As you point out, this is so important: “It’s payment for review (a gray area, or flat out forbidding), and open for being taken advantage of by the person requesting the review.” Again, great article and advice within the comment section. BTW, No, Tristan did not pay me for this comment!

This is not a review site in the traditional sense, but an email subscription for a retail store in NYC that also has an Amazon store and needs reviewers for their Amazon products. Available for reviewers in USA.

The only sites that I know of that give free kids stuff are the ones that giveaway baby stuff like diapers. I have heard of people who contact toy companies directly and were able to get free toys for their kids to “test”. Other than that, I don’t know of any. I’ll update this page if find any.

“how to receive free products for review on amazon +amazon product review blogs”

These changes will apply to all product categories other than books, as Amazon has always allowed advance copies of books to be distributed, the retailer notes. Amazon also says it has other ideas about making Vine more useful in the future, but didn’t go into detail.

You may have noticed that some of our reviews and rankings are slow to update. That could be because very little has changed in a particular product group. For example, stand mixers have not changed much in 20 years, so until something better than the Kitchen Aid comes along, you might not see an update to our review in 12 months – or until the new models arrive.

Yeah, I too have noticed that lately the lists I am signed up for run out of product at a much faster rate than before. I can’t complain since I am running and promoting a site with a main purpose to open up the review-in-exchange practice to many more people.

That’s the true success of Amazon’s likable smart speaker — it fits in seamlessly with your daily routine. It doesn’t ask you to change any of your habits, it just makes a surprising number of those habits better. It’s the most futuristic product that I own, yet it’s also right at place in my present.

On the one hand, I do have sellers that solicit me for product reviews, so I would be doing something that would also help their small businesses grow. Would I be discerning and not contact sellers that either sent me inferior products or sellers that I declined products from because their product seemed inferior? Or would I handle it from a perspective of more seller referrals may net more money for me and increased free/discounted products for me and the review community? On one hand, we are each responsible for deciding whether to perform due diligence prior to accepting to review a product. On the other hand, I may not want to encourage relationship building with sellers of inferior products as it may result in an (likely unwanted) increase emails from them asking me to review (likely more inferior) products?

Amazon, Wal-mart, and Target aren’t just popular retailers — their websites also serve as resources. Thousands of people flock to these sites daily to research products by way of customer reviews. Many big stores like these are used as search sources when others don’t include enough information for shoppers to make an educated decision.

Thank you for the clarification DeJay, and sorry for seeming so offended. In truth, I may have been a tad bit reactionary, which is soooo unlike me and now I’m embarrassed… Regardless of my unintended act of muddying the waters, I do see your point and agree. Admittedly, I sometimes wonder where the hell some of those suggestions “based on my browsing history” come from. An algorithm which is far beyond my capacity to understand, no doubt.

The active way would be to come right out and say that you enjoy reviewing products on Amazon. While there is no hard and fast rule against you saying that you would take products in exchange for honest reviews, I would advise against it. Since Amazon has the Vine Program in place, I’m not sure how kindly they would take to you overtly circumventing the program on your profile. It’s not that Amazon doesn’t know people are sent items for free in exchange for reviews, but I am sure they would prefer you not advertise you do so outside of Vine. But, if you are super eager to be sent products to review, then maybe the active approach might be best for you.

I have bought a computer it is great no problems very fast. Delivered when it was suppose to be very please my account is Bernice wiley and husband James Larry poole live in alto. Ga Thinks amazon is great oh yes and stand behind their products

They’re looking for bloggers, website owners, online publishers, journalists, YouTubers, Amazon reviewers (Vine), Yelpers, podcast show hosts, and other reviewers worldwide.  They fill out our easy Product Offer Form (HERE).  Then we publish their requests for reviews in our free email newsletters.

Among all the different types of marketing inserts, like thank you cards, discounts, and cross-sells, we are interested in asking for a product review. It shouldn’t be the only thing you care about, but it should be your main goal for the purposes of this article. And since Amazon doesn’t forbid this type of messaging, you should take advantage of it.

Set up your profile. Write up a short bio on your profile, expressing the your interests and what kind of products you like. Including your country, email address, and interest in reviewing in your profile will encourage sellers contact you directly for products to review. Make sure your profile is set to public as well.

“get free products for reviews on amazon |review amazon products for free”

Thank you for such valuable information, Lou! I’m commenting on your reply regarding ProductTestingUSA.com being a scam. It would be nice to note in the main article if possible, since not everyone will read all the comments.

Yep you’ll need to find a topic to blog about. You can become a lifestyle blogger and blog about a variety of topics. As for how to get products from companies to review on your blog, in this post at the end is a link that goes to how to become a product review blogger. Once you have a good flow of traffic to your blog you can also start pitching to companies directly. If only survey panels would allow you to blog about the products you test through them but unfortunately these products are top secret and not out on the market yet.

Blue Ribbons Review also has an extensive marketplace with discounts of at least 50%. You can also receive exclusive deals through their email that can be higher than those listed on the website. And, you can request products you currently do not see on their site as well.

I don’t buy items with Vine reviews. People may say they are being unbiased but it’s just not true. You are going to be more reasonable in your review for a product you paid hard earned money for. I was looking for a shower head recently and had a difficult time weighing the good ones against the bad because so many of them had those freebie reviews. I ended up not buying the shower head from Amazon altogether.

(2) Once you go through the install process, click NO when it asks if you want to install the updates. According to what I read, if you say YES, assumes a previous install/registration has taken place and then the game won’t run at all. If you happen to go through the updates, just uninstall the software via their instructions and start over. This shouldn’t affect anything since the key code was never entered. Others have stated that once you register and start the game the first time, just quit and restart the game to do the updates then.

Please reach out to Amazon about this issue. We do not control reviews, reviewers, or what they do on Amazon. This is a blog, that’s it. We don’t have reviewers, and I have no way to intervene or help out in this matter.

I don’t spend a single minute looking for ‘valid products’ on any of the sites. I only respond to the emails asking for product reviews. The emails being sent out with coupon codes already in them are likely to all be taken by the time I get to them, so I rarely bother chasing those anymore.

I will bend over backward to find positive things to say about it, and I will paint it as positively as I possibly can. But if it’s less than quality, I’d rather commit to provide you feedback to that extent directly. And simply not say anything publicly. Is that okay?

Book bloggers have the uncanny ability to passionately and tirelessly spread the word about their views—and reviews. Unfortunately, many review books on their personal websites and blogs, and not all are posting those reviews (or variations thereof) on Amazon. But don’t let that stop you.

I like Amazon’s 14 leadership principles (LP) and the company’s culture formed based on LPs. Many companies have culture out there but not every company and employee can truly internalize it. At Amazon, I met many good performers who truly internalized the LPs and apply them in their daily work. For example, teams are often “customers” to each other internally, and you can see that LPs such as customer obsession, think big etc. are impacting every decision making. Such practices not only benefit one’s customers but benefit their own work as well.

On behalf of Giveaway Service Team, I wish to thank you for writing such a positive comment about us. I would also like to point out that the discounted price on our website must not exceed $2. This means authors review products they got for free or at a highly discounted price.

1. Create a tracking system. You will need to identify and track to whom you are going to send your book or product. Not everyone that you contact will respond (I found about 50 percent of the people do), and of the people who respond about 50 percent of them will ultimately do a review. That means about one out of four people you identify will post a review (based on my experience), which is not too shabby. To track everyone, I use a simple Google Spreadsheet.

If you plan on making a lot of purchases through these review sites or on Amazon in general, we highly recommend you get Amazon Prime. You’ll get your product a lot faster and within 2 days at no cost.

True. Being able to contact a Seller directly without having bought from them first—or they having reached out to you to review—makes it much more difficult. For larger name brands that have websites, a simple Google search might suffice. But what about the smaller Sellers? I don’t have an answer there. At one time I used to see a “Contact Seller” button on some product detail pages. I’m not seeing that anymore.

There is a very good reason to suggest that people do NOT use their regular Amazon purchasing e-mail address in their profile. There could be scammers lurking the info pages looking for addresses that they might be able to use to try to get fake orders placed through Amazon.

That’s just bullshit because amazon allows reviews without purchasing and its different from the rest because amazon has a stake in kindle and they profit more no matter what on digital content. That would be illegally allowing that market to be inuenced only based on there own guaranteed financial gains. On top of membership access fees for kindle

Once you’ve enabled “My Product Reviews,” click on that tab and it will take you to a product review summary page that shows you a picture of the item, a description, the SKU, ASIN, number of reviews, number of positive and negative reviews, average rating and number of orders for the item.

While Vine members used to receive a monthly newsletter featuring books and other products they chose from to review — with products valued at anywhere from a few dollars to close to $1,000 — they now have access to a rolling list of items they can order at any time. According to NPR, Vine members cannot sell or give items received through the program away and Amazon can ask for the items back — although they don’t appear to do that.

“how to receive free amazon products for reviews -how to get free amazon products for a review”

But after reading this post, I went in and cleaned up a few of mine that weren’t detailed, and I scanned all of my titles to make sure they would stand out to a consumer as the type that would be helpful.

The book and product reviews on Amazon work the same way. The more reviews that people see for your product, the more likely they are to buy it. It triggers the social proof shortcut for your consumers. “Obviously, many others are buying it, so I will buy it.” Even if it sucks.

I also do reviews for a tech company on Amazon. Luckily their products are great so I am genuinely giving positive reviews. I gave a few bad reviews when necessary like when this power inverter buzzed after I hooked it up to an LED strip. I didn’t catch it in my initial review, but went back and added it. I do not see a big issue with people like me, but the wholesale purchase of positive reviews from a review mill takes it a bit far.

Hi, Megan It is reallly useful to read your article . But I have a question . As you said ,Be prepared to offer your product for free in exchange for a revieBut as far as I know , it is not allowed as it is agaist Amazon policy . Also if he does not pay the bill , will amazon allow top reviewer to make a review ? Waiting for your fast reply . Best regards 

Discounts can range from 20% to 90% and you will need to browse through the catalog to find the best deals. You can access exclusive offers by like ProductTesting.co on Facebook. You will also need to select your country of residence to view all the applicable offers.

The good news is you can get tons of reviews on Amazon for your book or product in a legitimate and honest way. The key is to proactively seek out reviewers. There are a number of people on Amazon who have bought and reviewed products or books that compete with yours. If you simply identify who these people are, and then offer to send them your product for an honest review, they are likely to do it. And since they already reviewed a competing product to yours, their review is highly credible.

Contact those who leave you negative reviews. Ignoring these won’t make them go away. Try to respond to negative reviews, especially if you think the reviewer is justified in their complaint or other customers have complained about the same issue. Take this opportunity to learn from your clients and improve your business.

Have an Amazon account with preferably a Prime membership. Prime is not required but if you plan on doing reviews regularly, you may want to consider getting a membership so you won’t have to pay shipping. The majority of review items offered qualify for free Prime shipping. Without Prime, you’ll have to pay between $4-$6 for shipping on each item. You can sign up for a Free 30-day Prime trial but remember to cancel before the trial is up or you will be charged the full membership price ($99) or you can opt for monthly payments of $10.99.

Just thought in case there are some honest folks around this might be useful to know. As someone that broke into the Top 100 on the Amazon Review rankings I stopped reviewing on Amazon (unless I actually buy the item) as of that change of policy.

Be sure to add a picture and a location to your profile. For some products, there may be a geographic limit to where they can send it. Some items can’t ship via air, and other items have a short shelf life and need to get there quick. And be professional about the image you choose. A half-naked selfie of you is not going to win over suppliers, unless you are looking to attract products for half-naked selfie-taking type people.

I’ve gotten things from Crowdtap and BzzAgent, and I only started about a month and a half – 2 months ago. I have received foundation from BzzAgent, an electric foot file from Crowdtap that retails for $60, and I’ve got more coming!

Knowing that, you can expect that background checks are minimal or (most likely) completely non-existent. BUT, if any manufacturer sends out a bunch of product and gets an abysmal response of people writing reviews, you can expect that the next time that manufacturer will likely do some more checks first.

For example, we ran an analysis on some headphones we found during a recent research sweep for our guide about cheap in-ear headphones. You can see from the results below that the headphones’ reviews didn’t score so well.

Having said all this, unless you currently sell a product that’s going viral or has been seen on Shark Tank, garnering customer reviews is not easy. There are, however, many simple and affordable ways to entice customers to tell the world what they think of the products they’ve bought.

I really do think the uk are at a disadvantage at this game!! It’s not fair! I do wish all these sites would have a uk section like art does. We are very limited here! Humf! Please post any uk sites you find, would be ever so grateful. Lol xx

This company is highly involved in products research and development. And under their KabelDirekt Premium User program, they often solicit qualified members to provide feedback. And contributing members will be rewarded with free products.

Oz Naturals is another review site that only sells products for their brand. In this case, you can review skin care products for only a few dollars. This can be a good option for the health-conscious as Oz Naturals only use natural and organic active ingredients.

The first time you write a review, you earn $3 for it. After that, each review earns you $1.00. Reviews are rated based on their quality. There is a quality review threshold, which if your review score reaches that point, you earn an additional $10.00 on the top of what you already earn for the your reviews. The minimum required for payout is $10.00. Carrotreviews has one set back and that is the fact that you are restricted to writing only 5 reviews a month. Although this rules changes from time to time.

Have you tried We Are Onyx? It’s a company geared toward women of color. I happened to see it in quite a few YouTube unboxing videos over the weekend. They seem to give nice size size samples according to the videos. I’m thinking of signing up with them.

Disconcertingly, not only were a lot of the cloned products for sale on Amazon positively drowning in successive, unverified five star reviews, but perhaps an even greater proportion were tagged Verified. These reviews all shared similar word patterns and either focused on or neglected the same features, while including a staggering amount of useless user pics as well. Of course the most blatant Fake giveaway was that they were uniformly peppered with multiple exclamation points and exhortations to Just Buy It!!!

Power drills and makeup mirrors having no connection? Really? Do you live under a rock? As a former beauty pageant winner and current toolbelt diva, I take issue with your statement sir. In fact, my last purchase on Amazon included these items: a Rockwell Versacut power saw, 150 pink Swarovski crystals, a bass tuner, a bottle of Beautiful by Estee Lauder (my signature scent), and a set of under drive pulleys for my Cobra. People, in general, are so much more than what you see on the surface, that what you see as completely unrelated and suspect is nothing more than an average shopping trend at a retailer that offers every conceivable product ever created.

You can not do this on all phones, you may have to use a laptop/tablet to do it. If you try and submit the text/video and images at the same time, the approval process is longer. The screen videos and images much more closely. For some reason though, they do not do it on Edits. Videos and images can take anywhere from no time at all to post to up to a few days depending on what is going on at Amazon. Good luck! Lynn

Books definitely have fake reviews. I know, because I’m the assistant to an author, and it is ridiculously difficult to get real reviews. So when you see a LOT of them, you can pretty much bet the majority are fake. Fan letters can flood in via email, but just try and get those very same fans to post reviews on Amazon. They just can’t be bothered. (It would be great if Amazon offered discounts or something to incentivize real reviewers.)

Since I began receiving free products I have kept a spreadsheet of all of the items that I have received. Since 26th June I have received 128 products with a combined value of £2,392.00 ($3,588.00). I find myself reviewing lots of similar products, most common items are Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth earphones & Headphones, Power Banks, Phone & Tablet cases & IP Camera’s, but I also received kitchen utensils, lighting, tablets and computer peripherals. As a consequence I now only accept approx 20% of the items that I am offered, you can get fed up with reviewing Bluetooth earphones!

Due to a massive amount of fake reviews, I think it is now safe to say that with Amazon, no 5 star reviews can be trusted and likely most all 4 star reviews either. One star reviews are the only ones worth reading.

We identify the writer as either a verified purchaser or un-verified purchaser. This aligns with normal ecommerce practices to capture the user ID of the person who writes the review and provides for better authoring, and discourages bad behavior.

s mentioned above, I highly recommend you start reviewing items around the house/office you use often so companies can get an idea of how you write. Also, keep in mind that the type of products you review can dictate what companies contact you. If you only review headphones, you will likely get more requests to review headphones.

Take a cool down. Negative reviews can sting, which is why your first step upon receiving a negative Amazon customer review should be to simply step back. Take a day or even several to cool down and then assess the situation with a clear mind. Is there any merit to the review? Maybe this is a clue to how you can improve your product. Is it a pure emotional tirade? Other uses can sense a baseless rant, so while your star ratings may be affected, users who take the time to read your 1-star reviews may see the senselessness of a bad review. If the review is blatantly emotional, these cool down days may be as beneficial for you as for the reviewer – they may be able to realize their earlier review was unreasonable and be open to editing it.

Create your detailed request to review the product. Include the link to your Amazon profile, the product name or ASIN in your request, and what kind of review you will do (detailed, with pictures, seller feedback, etc).

“amazon product api editorial review how can i get free products to review on amazon”

I review all of the time, but I’m wanting to start reviewing bigger products. Such as Bluetooth Speakers, and things like that. So, my question is how do I go about getting approved to review bigger products. Any advice you can give me would be wonderful.

I have tried to use a few of these sites. My favorites are “AMZ Review Trader” and “Review Kick”. They are slow to approve initially but once I got established with some good reviews on a few deals the better deals started coming through to me, and faster.

The engine adjusts based on the prevailing patterns used by proven fake reviewers and their reviews, so while there is some base criteria, we’re able to use artificial intelligence to keep ahead of the imposters. Every fake reviewer has patterns. And the more data we collect via analyses completed, the more our engine is able to adapt and learn. The secret sauce is not only in the engine but the ability to run the data in the quickest amount of time possible; ensuring swift delivery of an accurate product.

Amazon wouldn’t be the first online entity to not update their public blurb pages, nor provide specific details on internal programs. I’m not able to go into detail, though, so you can “win” if you feel the need.

“Thanks for asking me to review your product. I want to let you know that I feel uncomfortable being asked by Seller to up-vote other reviews since this goes against Amazon’s policy forbidding “solicitations for helpful votes” (source: http://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/customer-reviews-guidelines).

“We do not incentivize positive star ratings, attempt to influence the content of reviews, or even require a review to be written,” explains Chee Chew, VP, Customer Experience at Amazon in an announcement about how Vine controls for bias. “And we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product,” he adds.

I filled out so many testing item surveys it’s not funny. It’s been s few months and I don’t even get any emails for anything related to the site. It’s not worth it. I also did the surveys for offer bucks.com and you have to have all 10 validated before you get your $100, I have only had one validated and it’s been months. I emailed them twice and never got a response. Don’t waste your time like I did.

Put your reviews front and center. Consider placing a couple reviews right on your homepage. If you have reviews for specific items, publish them on each product page. You can even add an entirely new page dedicated to housing awesome testimonials with a link in your top nav. Just make sure you get them on your site in a way that works for your product. We love how Primal Pit Paste shows off their raving fans on a special section of their website.

Whether you maintain a strong social media following, belong to many writing groups, or already have built-in readers from a previous book launch, your existing fans are your bread and butter. Since they already have an appreciation for you and your work, you are one step closer to converting them from fans to reviewers.

This review program is part of the GMYLE brand, “developing MacBook, Tablet, Smartphone Accessories.” Like similar programs, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. When applying: Reviewers in “United States will receive first round pick. United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, France, Italy and Spain will become available after.”

Thanks for your feedback, JCrews. I don’t spend too much time writing Amazon reviews, but I mainly do so because of how I depend upon the reviews of other Amazon customers. I’ve made quite a few buying decisions based on reviews.

Good try, but on their end, the page now opens up by will not scroll down. Perhaps this is just a momentary lapse. At any rate, that “21%” is wildly way too low. I figure about 45-50% total for unreliable anonymous reviews, which, of course, Amazon for one could not care less about (when the company stock price is soaring, the company’s attitude, regardless of which one, is “Up Yours!”)

If you think it’s necessary, you may also ask customers to write a title (or headline), and to provide a broad location (such as a city and/or state). If you want customers to be able to include images or video, use an upload function that you’ve tested on all devices.

This is another exclusive review program that requires an invite in order to sign up. Click through and use the application form we found to apply for your invitation. Since FAQs are closed to members, info is limited at this time. (Likely) available for reviewers in USA.

Home Product Testing has a relatively smaller base with only 28,000+ registered product testers. They do have good offers if you are looking for products to use in your kitchen or around your house. It is also possible to try out supplements, fashion accessories, and other items like sleeping bags.

We regularly survey reviewers to get a better understanding of their needs and how we’re doing when it comes to meeting them. Findings from the Reviewer Feedback Programme help us to improve the reviewing experience. For example 90% of reviewers said they would like to be able to see the final decision and other reviewers’ comments on a paper, so we added this functionality to EES.

EtekCity has great products that are always offered for free. Yet their website only promotes product from one brand: EtekCitizen. In exchange for leaving your review, they are giving you their products for free that they put up on Amazon.

Amazon’s current TOS/rules say that, to post a review, they have to have purchased (from Amazon.com of course! LOL) at least $50 in merchandise (!) using their credit or debit card. So, gift cards, as some of the posters suggest, won’t work unless you happen to find those customers. New Amazon customers who want to post a review? Good luck!? Also, nobody mentions this, but keep in mind that, for every product you discount (say 50% or even 99%), remember that those reviewers, naturally (or let’s just say often) will come back and post those products on Amazon at a price way more competitively than yours. So you have to remember the yin and the yang: the upside is you might get a good review, the downside is you could easily lose 1 future sale for every 1 review. Yes, perhaps that’s a small price to pay. Sometimes, though, it can be hundreds of dollars, or more, lost per sale, for higher priced goods, imo.

Understand how to properly write a quality review. Each review should provide information that is descriptive and helpful to someone interested in buying the product. Aim for (at minimum) 75 words and use complete sentences. Be sure to include the appropriate disclaimer: “I received this product for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.” OR “I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.” If you want more tips on writing great reviews straight from Amazon, go HERE .

Testimonials  and product reviews can be one of your greatest sales tools. Over 70% of consumers say they look at product reviews before making a purchase and nearly 63% indicate they are more likely to buy from a site that has product ratings and reviews. Social proof can reassure hesitant shoppers, provide additional context and reduce returns by ensuring buyers are satisfied with their purchase.

“how to get free products in exchange for amazon reviews |get amazon products in exchange for review”

I love tomoson!!! Best one of all these. Gives me so many products a month I usually have abt four items at a time to review and it’s so easy!!! Amazon review trader has been slow they were good when I first signed up one of the very firsts to get a product from and got a few more however now I keep getting deals without being prime eligible so then I end up having to pay for shipping when the product is free which is ridiculous however I can not figure out how to know if it’s prime eligible or not before I Accept the promo. And then I try and contact the sellers and no response. This is an issue with abt four of my promos right now and I can’t seem to get and answer so I’m not really a big fan of them anymore. I am completely satisfied with tomoson tho :). Can’t wait for more updates if you have any.

Joe, this isn’t true. I have been selling for a month and have had three 5 star reviews, by people I work with, that all bought from their own account, from a different IP address, and the reviews went up for a week or so, then they all have been taken down. The reviews were up for a few days, then they disappeared. How does this happen? On top of that, I sold about 50 products and started moving up the ranking, then I got a 1 star review from someone that didn’t even buy the product, and it has been there for three weeks. Now my product is not selling. Apparently the bad review worked. Also, why didn’t any of the 50 people that bought my product review it? Amazon needs to make it easier for new people to sell products. The top sellers could get a couple people to give their competition bad reviews, and “goodbye competition.”

If you think it’s necessary, you may also ask customers to write a title (or headline), and to provide a broad location (such as a city and/or state). If you want customers to be able to include images or video, use an upload function that you’ve tested on all devices.

Please reach out to Amazon about this issue. We do not control reviews, reviewers, or what they do on Amazon. This is a blog, that’s it. We don’t have reviewers, and I have no way to intervene or help out in this matter.

I was a vine reviewer. Till I gave 1 star reviews and told the truth about some children books. Amazon took my Vine priveledges away…And told me why. Sorry. I could not lie to other parents, and yes I do not regret my decision. Even if I don’t have a vine membership any longer. Even if I could get laptops, HD tv, furniture, appliances, and the latest technologies FREE….I am sticking to my morals and honesty.

EtekCity has great products that are always offered for free. Yet their website only promotes product from one brand: EtekCitizen. In exchange for leaving your review, they are giving you their products for free that they put up on Amazon.

In my opinion they’re not requiring it, just strongly suggesting what they’d like. I actually had to deal with a seller yesterday who emailed me about a previous review that they claimed was hurting sales. I had given an item 3 stars and they wanted me to change it to four or more.

Hi! Have you tried influester, Crowdtap or The Pink Panel? The Pink Panel you test beauty or hair products and often will be rewarded with Amazon gift cards or keep the product. Crowdtap I signed up a few months ago and have received lots of good stuff and they have a monthly gift card giveaway. Influester you can received beauty boxes if you stay active on their website. www.influenster.com/r/1402512

I’ve gotten things from Crowdtap and BzzAgent, and I only started about a month and a half – 2 months ago. I have received foundation from BzzAgent, an electric foot file from Crowdtap that retails for $60, and I’ve got more coming!

While soliciting reviews can seem to take a lot of time and effort, their value cannot be underestimated. Reviews immediately add credibility to your book, communicating to potential customers that it is a worthy read. They also improve your book’s ranking when consumers are searching on Amazon, which is the primary reason to stay committed to getting reviews. If you’re able to move your title into earlier search pages, you’ll be discovered by readers who wouldn’t otherwise find you. And that, hopefully, will translate into more book sales.

(3) If you start the game and only get a black screen with a big blue cursor (sometimes I got music in the background, but I usually didn’t), this doesn’t appear to be a video compatibility issue, at least in our case. Once you get the Spore cursor on your screen, click command-Q. This will take you out of the game and give you a message that you must quit from inside the game. Click OK and then it takes you back to the game, but now you can see/hear everything. Odd, but it works – and it needs to be done every time you start the game.

I totally agree, but it’s a nice quick way to capture small mistakes in formats that normally, you might really not care. In my Amazon reviews, because I’d never before even thought of doing reviews regularly, I really didn’t bother with editing. And that’s what I mean as far as most internet content. I share on my favorite sports team sites, and others that my grammar just really doesn’t matter. However, I too have been an editor, and as a journalist I feel the need to “set an example,” as if anyone actually is looking for an example or learning from me anyway! That’s my ego, as usual, pointing out to me how important I am ;).

We lay-folk have long known that scientists use common objects for strange reasons – see NASA researchers sending rubber ducks into a glacier to track ocean currents, or environmental scientists floating tampons down streams to find pollution.

I’m a Viner who has gotten defective items and sent them back, or had companies simply replace them. I then comment in my reviews in updates how good or bad the customer service was about the matter. Like other Viners, I also often update my reviews when items don’t perform as they should or when their performance exceeds my expectations. It’s not at all rare for Viners to do those things.

I am very confused about your idea of contacting a seller directly to review products. For example, if a company such as XYZ, Inc., is selling a Farberware pan for 20.00. Why would XYZ, Inc. give me a product made by Farberware to review for free? A favorable review really only benefits Farberware as the item can be purchased anywhere. Moreover, many sellers on Amazon sell the Farberware item so there might be 5 sellers for that one item. Am I supposed to contact all 5 sellers? What are their incentives to give me the pan for free when buyers can go to another seller and buy it? Lastly, many of the sellers on Amazon are amazon. I certainly cant ask Amazon to give me a product to review.

That is a conundrum for sure, and I think Tristan gives a good resolution idea as usual. Considering the problems existing for reveiwers, both those our peers have brought on us, and those sellers bring on us; I’ve concluded that to ever type, like, or in any way give a review or a like for something I didn’t try isn’t acceptable.

This is the online guerrilla marketing method of PR. There is a unique benefit of getting product reviews from other websites that helps increase brand credibility and trustworthiness in addition to word-of-mouth marketing.

Distributed enterprises are finding that legacy WAN technologies are creating pain points in the digital era, prompting the need for a new WAN paradigm. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) has emerged as an architecture that improves visibility and optimization among common WAN connectivity protocols, while promising reduced costs, improved performance, and enhanced security and control over … Continue Reading…

Amazon, for its part, says that it’s actively adjusting its algorithms to fight sham reviews. The company says it uses a combination of human moderation and machine learning to combat fake reviews, though declined to say how many actual human moderators are involved in the effort. It suggests that sellers who want reviews look to the Amazon Vine program, which offers products to trusted reviewers. There’s also the Amazon Early Reviewer program, a service Amazon offers sellers who need to get reviews from customers — Amazon will offer customers who purchase a product a small gift card from Amazon if they choose to review a product (whether that review is one star or five stars doesn’t matter). But both of these programs are geared toward higher-end or more established sellers; on message boards dedicated to selling on Amazon, many complain bitterly about the difficulty of getting into the program or its overall inefficacy compared to other methods.

Hello. I recently came upon your blog a couple of days ago and I was very impressed with it. I decided to give Survey Junkie a try on a whim. I was able to redeem $10 amazon so far. My question is this: How long did it take for you to receive your

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.

I live in Canada, read many reviews and have written a few for different products. If I had been aware of the Vine program (and was eligible) I would have written reviews for all the items I own that are available on Amazon.

I’ve been a Vine reviewer for a while and I agree with your concerns. The biggest one in terms of long-term use is that you’re required to post a review within thirty days (used to be ninety, I think). I update reviews months or years later as wear and tear or faults start to appear, but by that point a concensus has been established and helpfulness votes cast.

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.

“amazon product reviews download _how to get sent products to review amazon”

It’s funny that Amazon tried to sue many websites for doing exactly this. You can still buy amazon reviews at sites like https://launchzon.com/ but I guess they gave up on lawsuits and are just trying to make an extra buck like this now. Way to go Amazon!

I think Amazon should take this review devaluing more seriously! And maybe a few rounds of region-based boycott’s would help them take notice? Instead they dink around w/ taking or giving Prime Benefits or spin off more fee based memberships with new names! Aye! BTW, has anyone made a Hitler reaction video yet?

I love tomoson!!! Best one of all these. Gives me so many products a month I usually have abt four items at a time to review and it’s so easy!!!

“Also, they asked me to check some of the existing reviews, and to click that one helped me.” DON’T DO THIS. This A) goes against the ethics of the Reviewing community, B) is expressly forbidden by Amazon and something Amazon is cracking down on and kicking Reviewers/Seller out for, and C) is something we all need to stamp out by writing back to Sellers and saying ‘no’—educate them that this practice of fake up-votes is unethical and against policy.

When the final list is complete, our reviewers reach out to manufacturers in search of no-strings-attached samples or products available on loan. Side note: Most manufactures are happy to provide samples – never mind the possibility of a bad review – because they believe in the quality of their products and look forward to the free press – good, or bad. In some instances, when a product sample is not available, we head to the store and shell out the cash to pick it up just like you would.

If Amazon actually made it as easy to post reviews about the shipping and purchase process as for products themselves, then I would believe they actually care about that. But they don’t because they don’t want their own problems highlighted. It’s not as if this was unintentional; Bezos’ “Iron Rule” is not that ignorant.

Vogue never sent me anything over the year I was with them..BUT..they kept sending surveys. I finally wrote them and told them they were just using my information for free and I was tired of it. So..don’t join unless you just want to fill out surveys and get NOTHING in return.

“I have been using Amazon feedback software, FeedbackExpress, for a month now and without question, my seller metrics are improving. The carefully worded emails they have produced are without question getting more customers to leave positive feedback and product reviews.”

But unlike Siri, which is still secondary to touch as a means of interfacing with iOS devices, Alexa is essentially all the Echo has. It was critical for Amazon to get her right — thankfully, she delivers (and yes, calling Alexa “she” feels more correct than calling Alexa “it,” a testament to how personable she is).

I ask it for the morning headlines as I brew my 8 a.m. pot of coffee. I ask it to play the most recent episode of my favorite podcast while I work out. I ask it to set a timer when I throw a frozen pizza in the oven for dinner. I ask it to turn my lights out when I’m hitting the sack. It’s always listening, and it always just works.

Most review sites allow the sellers to check out the viewers and approve or disapprove them. I have made a database of the reviewers and make sure I do not send two coupons for the same product to the same person. Most sellers on Amazon are struggling and thefts like this can bring us down completely. I have nothing personal against AmzRC and its owner Andy, but unfortunately he is facilitating this theft and is not willing to rectify it. I just want to warn other sellers before they get burned like me. Andy does not care. Amazon does not care. It is your responsibility care about yourself”

No argument there! I only found it recently, when I was looking at stereo equipment, and trying to get things that were only the specific item, so I took to clicking on all the things trying to find a filter.

I love the sites that you have put up. I wanted to know is it okay to post a link on your blog. This link is for earning giftcards for over 50 places, such as Amazon, ebay, Kmart, walmart, playstation network, burger king,and many many others. It is very easy to earn points by watching short vidoes, taking 10 question surveys, regular surveys,playing games and many other things. I have been on the site for 6 months and I have earned 600.00. in different gift cards and I have even requested checks. You can even get 100 points and get a 1.00 giftcard. The reason that I am asking about posting a link is because honestly when i refer someone I get more points. I wanted to make sure that it was ok. Also if this is not okay I will just post the name of the site so that everyone can use it.Your giftcards are instant so you do not have to wait for them in the mail.

My guess is that this is a reviewer that does not know about the new rule changes. Should I contact the reviewer and let them know about the change and explain that we were not expecting a review in exchange for the discount?

For the sake of our Amazon review-centered discussion, simply click for the “customer reviews” link and sort by newest reviews. Click the reviewer’s name for their details.  If they provide contact info connected with their profile, you’re in luck! Send an e-mail.  If only a name shows up, try contacting them on another social network like Twitter or Facebook.

I’m not going to attack nor defend DRM (Digital Rights Management) in this review since the game does NOT make it a secret that an installation key, Internet connection and registration are needed for a successful and complete installation.

Thank you for letting me know about Fiverr…I went and had a look and I cannot believe that people are selling this service and that it actually seems to very popular, wow!! My eyes really have been opened to this reviewing game, there really is another whole new world on Amazon with this carry on I never knew existed. Funny I was looking through the reviews on a product I had been sent after I read your reply and every one of the 48 reviews were down voted apart from the 3 top rated ones…such shady business. The article you are thinking of writing would be excellent in exposing this…I do agree that this needs to be exposed and I do think Amazon need to be taking it seriously and help combat it! Good luck with it Tristan, I look forward to reading it….

Thank you for this list. I’m with bad agent,pinch me AMD influenster. I’m getting my first campaign with buzz agent I’ll be getting a glade candle. Influsenter let me get a Vick’s humidifier and a Travis silly cup. And pinch me is letting my try some scrub pads, and engaging toddler milk. I will be checking out the other websites u mention too. Thank u!

Deals for Review allows you to get deals for at least 50% off. They even partner with sellers to sample products before they launch for feedback. Most of the products available on this site are for lower-priced items. But, you can still find some good deals on items you will use.

I signed up for a few of these sites, excited! I didn’t think to much about it, but Amazon has a HUGE problem with these sites! They are deceptive, not affilited with Amazon at all and most are against Amazon’s TOS I have since deleted all of the accounnts that would actually let me and changed any info left in the others. I do not recommend using these sites unless you do not care about your Amazon account. Just a heads up! Beware! These sites are all under investigation by Amazon and you may be swept up in the crossfire like so many others have already! Here is a link to the forums on Amazon talking about this exact thing:

This tank R-O-C-K-S! Literally- the 400-watt sound-system keeps me rockin like a crazy man as I’m dishing out justice commando style. Wow. I just can’t say enough. And the kids love it, too- imagine the look of terror in the eyes of the enemy as I’m dropping off my kid’s team to their soccer game. Shock and awe, my friends, SHOCK AND AWE!

Important: Before you can post a review, you need to have an Amazon.com account that has successfully been charged for the purchase of a physical or digital item. Free digital downloads don’t qualify. You don’t need to have purchased the product you’re reviewing. There’s a 48-hour waiting period after your first physical order has been completely shipped, or your digital item has been purchased, before you’ll be able to submit your review. If you’ve purchased a digital gift for someone else, the 48-hour waiting period doesn’t begin until the gift has been redeemed.

Amazon Vine is an invitation-only program. Vine Voices are selected based on several criteria, but primarily on the helpfulness of their reviews as judged by all other customers and by their demonstrated interest in the types of products that are featured in the program. Customers who consistently write helpful reviews and develop a reputation for expertise in specific product categories are most likely to be invited into the program.

The issue isn’t a small one for Amazon and other e-commerce sites, which rely on honest feedback to help customers make informed decisions. Increasingly, younger buyers place a premium on “authenticity,” and sites that they perceive as providing false or biased information may not earn their repeat business. 

Loot Hoot has offers for every Amazon marketplace, not just the U.S. and Canada. That being said, it can be difficult at times for American shoppers as many items are listed with foreign currencies and even having shipping prices already included. You can filter by country to make searching easier.

However, many people don’t even have basic editing skills. They can catch some spelling issues but the limit ends about there. For an average Joe, who doesn’t put much thought into the quality of their copy…it is very helpful.

Last occurence, not later than yesterday is that my Security Guard who called on my behalf (I do not speak Hindi and it seems that people at HomeTown does not speak English) was informed that our response was too late and pick-up is cancelled.

It’s funny that Amazon tried to sue many websites for doing exactly this. You can still buy amazon reviews at sites like https://launchzon.com/ but I guess they gave up on lawsuits and are just trying to make an extra buck like this now. Way to go Amazon!

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.

Follow up with buyers. Consider sending an email to customers after they make a purchase. You’re most likely to get a review when the purchase is still top of mind. Check out Bigcommerce app partner Yotpo to automate this process, which makes it easy for you but more importantly makes it easy for your customers. Remove as much friction as possible between your request and their ability to submit a review.

After registering for an account, you will begin receiving emails letting you know if there are new products available for review. If there is a product that you would like to review, you will need to grab a coupon code, purchase the item from Amazon at a super discounted rate and then post your review to Amazon within two weeks of receiving the product. your review is posted to Amazon, you also need to submit the review link to HonestFew. Those who do not review the items they are sent are removed from the program.

Janet, Make sure there is nothing else in your cart, most codes will not work if there is. If it does not ‘apply’ and gives you an error message there are several things different options you can try.

Maintaining competitive pricing 24/7 is also crucial to your ability to win the Buy Box. With our sister product, RepricerExpress, you can automate Amazon pricing and beat your competitors to the Buy Box more easily.

However, many people don’t even have basic editing skills. They can catch some spelling issues but the limit ends about there. For an average Joe, who doesn’t put much thought into the quality of their copy…it is very helpful.

Amazon has historically prohibited compensation for reviews – even going so far as to sue those businesses who pay for fake reviews, as well as the individuals who write them, in an effort to make its review and rating system fairer and more helpful to online shoppers. However, it has allowed businesses to offer products to customers in exchange for their “honest” review.

I was a vine reviewer. Till I gave 1 star reviews and told the truth about some children books. Amazon took my Vine priveledges away…And told me why. Sorry. I could not lie to other parents, and yes I do not regret my decision. Even if I don’t have a vine membership any longer. Even if I could get laptops, HD tv, furniture, appliances, and the latest technologies FREE….I am sticking to my morals and honesty.

Obtaining Amazon Customer Reviews is no longer a part of ADG whatsoever. Further, the DealCoin system has been removed entirely, so you are not limited to the Deals you can redeem based on DealCoins. You are free to take advantage of as many Deals as you’d like without restriction.

Posted a bad review once and the company offered me 20% back, but only if I removed the review, no mention of fixing the issue lol. I contacted Amazon to say they had tried to bribe me and Amazon didnt want to know. A few days after their 20% offer they phoned me at home, I hadnt given them my number and saw no reason for them to have it, guy was really creepy and kept asking what I did want for removing the review, at the end he got racist and hung up. I sent a recording of the phonecall to Amazon and once again, they didnt want to know.

Take the Amazon Echo out of the box and plug it in, and you’ll hear the sound of Alexa waking up. She’ll say hello, then talk you through the setup process. You’ll connect to the speaker’s Wi-Fi network on your phone or tablet, then sync things back up with your home network in the Alexa app. Within a minute, you’ll be up and running.

Hi Tristan. Great information! I just wanted to underscore a sentence you wrote above regarding receiving payment post-review (I work in an industry where the payment based upon success of the product is frowned upon/illegal/immoral as well). As you point out, this is so important: “It’s payment for review (a gray area, or flat out forbidding), and open for being taken advantage of by the person requesting the review.” Again, great article and advice within the comment section. BTW, No, Tristan did not pay me for this comment!

We Amazon sellers have all been through the end of incentivized reviews together and shared our thoughts, worries and experiences during this change which happened back in October 2016. I have already shared some of my thoughts on the matter, and been open about the fact that change is good, and that we should embrace the opportunity this brings to business owners. 

The gift card layering method is another frequently used tool by savvy shoppers. If you know you have to make a purchase from a certain retailer, such as Starbucks or Amazon, you can first purchase a gift card that comes with a discount. For example, at GiftCardGranny.com or Raise.com, you might be able to buy a $50 gift card for $40, which shaves an automatic $10 off your purchase. 

Our demographic isn’t the same, but it wouldnt hurt to ask: How long after signing up did you start noticing product testing surveys and such? I’m pretty consistant with filling out as many surveys as possible!

Great article! Thanks for your help personalizing my profile- I didn’t realize that was something I could do! I was wondering if you’ve ever personally contacted companies to test their products or if they generally just approach you? I really considered going the “bold” and “direct” route you mentioned, but I don’t want to get into trouble from Amazon either, haha. Also- if they contact you- is it always through your email- or is there a way for them to contact you through Amazon?

As the name suggests, you will be writing reviews about softwares. You can expect to get paid up to $50 dollars for each software review you write. They have a list of softwares that you can write reviews on. Although, you are limited to only 3 reviews a day.

This program uses the power of your social media and blog to help spread the word about new and upcoming products. Amazon review not required. Available for product testers in in the UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Germany, Spain, Italy and France.

As for your 80 product reviews…don’t sweat it! I have heard of people getting asked after 3 reviews. It is sort of a crap shoot based on the products you have reviewed. Sellers look through competitor’s products for recent reviews and clicks on the reviewer’s names to see if their Profile has an email address. The products/categories you reviewed may not be searched for right now, or your reviews may be under dozens of other more recent reviews, or a multitude of reasons. Keep at it—and make sure your profile is complete with email address—I’m certain that you will start to get more Sellers contacting you directly.

You will receive a daily email about the latest offers and can expect to receive a handful of trial products each week. Competition can be fierce so you will have to act quickly to claim the items you want most.

We currently fully support the US and UK marketplaces with promotions and email campaigns. Jump Send email campaigns are also available for Canada, Mexico, Germany, France, Spain and Italy. More marketplaces are coming soon, we will notify all members when they are available.

Among all the different types of marketing inserts, like thank you cards, discounts, and cross-sells, we are interested in asking for a product review. It shouldn’t be the only thing you care about, but it should be your main goal for the purposes of this article. And since Amazon doesn’t forbid this type of messaging, you should take advantage of it.

Here the membership requirement is more stringent in the sense that you should have an active buying habit within Amazon.com, and have a credible history of reviews. The main products are often the new products under promotion. And you get to bring them home free for your review.

The problem I have with Amazon and its reviews is this, I review for Amazon where I obtain items I would normally purchase but at a reduced price for my honest opinion. And my reviews are very honest, I have no issue in telling a company that their bvlah blah product is crap and this is why,,,

So why does Amazon claim it’s not lawful to post fake reviews in the first place? According to the complaint, the reviewers are liable for breach of contract since, as Amazon customers, they are bound by the company’s terms of service. Amazon also claims the fake reviews are unfair and deceptive under Washington law, and amount to unlawful interference with third-party contracts.

This review program is part of the Honstek brand of headphones speakers. Like Mengo, GMYLE Lab, and Anker, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. Available to reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Japan.

The BEST site I have used for taking surveys and being paid for the surveys is called: oneopinion.com. Again, you need 25000 credits to cash out into paypal. Its VERY EASY to get them. Ive already cashed out for OVER $500.00 in 2 1/2months. They DONT charge a fee, wen you cash out, your money IMMEDIATELY goes into your paypal account, and at times, they send you products to test and do a survey on. I JUST received an additional 30.00 for a dog treat survey, on top of the 2500 points for the original survey. So, oneopinion.com is a site I would DEFINITELY recommend

I am very confused about your idea of contacting a seller directly to review products. For example, if a company such as XYZ, Inc., is selling a Farberware pan for 20.00. Why would XYZ, Inc. give me a product made by Farberware to review for free? A favorable review really only benefits Farberware as the item can be purchased anywhere. Moreover, many sellers on Amazon sell the Farberware item so there might be 5 sellers for that one item. Am I supposed to contact all 5 sellers? What are their incentives to give me the pan for free when buyers can go to another seller and buy it? Lastly, many of the sellers on Amazon are amazon. I certainly cant ask Amazon to give me a product to review.

Thanks for the suggestion. I don’t know anything about them since they are new to me, BUT I will say that their site does not use encryption during the sign-up, login process and account area. I HIGHLY recommend you hold off using the site until they fix this security issue. I will be contacting RMI telling them they need to fix this to protect their users/customers. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention.

Yes these websites are safe. I would never add any fraudulent sites on my blog. These are survey panels I currently use to have opportunities to test products at home. There is no commitment so you can quit anytime by unsubscribing.

Don’t list interests or review items that you have no interest in, and certainly don’t list interests that are outside your ability or skill set. If you have no idea what JavaScript is, then don’t list it as an interest in the hopes someone would send you a book on the subject. Same goes for high end items like projectors. People do get sent projectors from time to time via the Vine program, but writing “I love reviewing projectors!” is not the way to go about it: writing well-written reviews on projectors you own is. We’ll get into how to write review below.

“review amazon products for money _review my amazon products”

I’ve not, but thanks for the information. It seems to me the best, and most unbiased, straight-forward way to become a reviewer is just as Tristan has described. I’ve always reviewed my products, and admittedly many of mine are very good (I do a TON of research in advance of virtually any purchase, and am happy to report that is the primary reason for so many four star and higher reviews).

Anyone noticing that is only noticing what they want to believe. There are unlimited “negative or even critical” Vine review. Unlimited! It’s a myth that those who get Vine products are less likely or incapable of writing critical reviews. Believers always refer to some past research project to verify that belief, too. Go read Vine reviews, and stop perpetuating an untruth. Besides those who believe that myth, most other complaints about Vine reviews are by those who are jealous they don’t get free items to review. If they got an invitation to join Vine, you better believe they would change their way of thinking instantly. They would tell themselves it’s not a totally dishonest program, and they would make it a more honest program by becoming a member.

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.

OZ Naturals VIP List Visit their site, scroll down and enter your email address where it says JOIN THE OZ NATURALS VIP LIST to sign up. You’ll receive promotion codes via email to get free OZ Naturals products to review.

Listings associated with a product in the eBay product catalog are eligible for product reviews. If no review has been written, a buyer will be given the opportunity to be the first to write a review and any buyers of reviewable items will receive an email encouraging them to write a review. All eligible products across all categories in general can be reviewed and show reviews.

Did you know that you can join clinical research trials and can be paid up to $1000 or more?  Yes, very true!  You’ll be paid for your time and travels to a research facility for testing.  Below are current clinical research trials openings, must have one of these conditions to sign up.

Take a look through the list of Amazon’s top reviewers, and create a spreadsheet where you can start logging info about your potential reviewers. You are looking for reviewers who have already reviewed books in your genre, and once you’ve found them, any additional information you can grab about them, including email addresses, and any personal interests.

I agree with all you’ve said, but I’d add that once you’ve done THOUSANDS of reviews, you really don’t worry too much about pleasing the vendors. I feel absolutely no need to please them – if they take me off their list, good, that’s fewer emails for me to go through anyway, it’s not like someone else won’t offer me a ton of things tomorrow.

Take a screen shot of your window with the code you pasted in, I always try and copy/paste them for accuracy, and the error message you got. Include the Total Section. Email this to the proper person. Different websites and fb groups have different rules on how to proceed with this. That way you have proof that you typed in the correct thing and it didn’t work. So many times someone tries to tell you that you did it wrong, lol.

I have not seen anything that indicates that it’s available in France. I’ve seen some in Canada say they were invited, but Amazon doesn’t appear to provide any information on which countries the program operates in.

I only write honest reviews, and I write them as if I spent my own money to buy the product (just as customers would.) I test all products thoroughly. I also only do reviews for products that interest me. That being said, most times I don’t get awful products because I research the product on Amazon before I say ‘yes.’ If it looks like junk, or other reviewers are panning it, then I say ‘no, thanks.’

Looks like he was actually wiped from amazon at some point. It is happening more. They can wipe without warning or reason and probably assume he violated something. Not giving the specific reason does not allow the person the ability to properly defend and appeal. They have plenty of customers. .they could care less. They violate rules themselves. In turn they are hurting the reviewers, sellers, and finally themselves. They need to revamp their method of plan, control, and rules. The rules are vague.

Etekcity.com has a consumer testing area. You can apply and choose which tech item you wish to test and review, and if accepted, they’ll send it to you. Each time you do this and follow through with your review requirements, it ups your chance to review a more expensive piece of tech. I just signed up last week and I have a digital kitchen scale headed my way via UPS 🙂

1.      Find the top reviewers. First we’ll scour the Amazon list of Top Reviewers. You’ll see the page is divided into Top Reviewer Rankings and Hall of Fame Reviewers. Hall of Fame holds the long-time legacy reviewers, while the Top Review Rankings shows the best Amazon contributors at the current moment. Hall of Fame shows the reviewers’ title badges and accolades, although you can get this same info mousing over names in the Top Reviewers section.

Since launching, the Echo has only gotten smarter. Most of what’s new comes by way of Alexa’s “Skills,” which are essentially the Echo’s apps. Whenever you enable one, you’re basically teaching Alexa a new trick. And, thanks to Amazon releasing a software development kit that third parties can use to craft those Skills, the list of options is growing rapidly. As of July 2017, the number of skills is well above 10,000.

This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I recommend reviewing products you are interested in getting more of (and own, of course.) So, if you are looking to get more baby or audio products, then make sure you review a lot of baby and audio products. I recently reviewed a few of the popular baby toys and items around the house, and now I get hit up about baby items A LOT. The key is to review popular or mainstream items. I believe suppliers often target those reviewers first since there are usually hundreds of reviewers to choose from. In fact, some suppliers have told me that they found me via another item’s review I wrote.

In addition, starting May 6, product reviews will be available for all eligible listings. eBay sellers who previously opted out of product reviews on My eBay will be opted back into product reviews. If you opted out and want to opt in to take advantage of the benefits of product reviews before May 6, you can do so on My eBay.

To test products full time you can become a product review blogger like me by joining companies looking for bloggers to review their products on blogs. I did a blog post about it and here is the link http://www.productreviewmom.com/2013/11/how-to-become-product-review-blogger.html

I remember receiving a product to test from Product Report Card testing a food product for a couple of weeks, and I was paid $150 doing it!  They are a high ranking panel.   Also, they have offers to join high paying focus groups! 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal, Amazon Gift Cards, and Merchandise

Yes these websites are safe. I would never add any fraudulent sites on my blog. These are survey panels I currently use to have opportunities to test products at home. There is no commitment so you can quit anytime by unsubscribing.

According to PowerReviews research, 38% of consumers start the purchase journey on Amazon, and almost all shoppers consult reviews on Amazon. That’s why it’s more important than ever for brands to make product information such as ratings and reviews accessible to shoppers regardless of the channel they choose.

With product testing sites, the latter is less common than the first. Furthermore, most sites send coupon codes so they and or the Seller can use the Amazon Seller Center to track usage, and more importantly, get the “Verified purchase” badge on the review.

2.      Search for relevant tags. Mousing over names in either section will bring up the reviewer’s most used tags. Your goal will be to find top reviewers who have used tags related to product or industry in the past, making them a perfect target.

After you’ve completed your product test, you’ll usually be asked to write a review, fill out a survey, or participate in a discussion about the product.   It’s important that you be honest when you do this, even if you have some criticism for the product. The company wants to improve their product if needed. The more in-depth you go with your reviews and answers will give them valuable feedback.

They don’t have a large product selection, and it’s really difficult to find products for free on Dollar Deal Reviews. This is because most of the freebies are gone quickly and they don’t update their selections very frequently.

Since Amazon is famous for its extensive line of products, their low prices, and great convenience, this news put their customer’s trust, one of Amazon’s core assets, on the line. They needed to fix this, or else, their business would be affected.

At the same time, one of our readers, Tracy, who had commented a while back about the site, joined the site and came back to share her experience. And her experience is basically aligned with my thoughts. See Tracy’s comment here.

Snagging an assessment from one of these prize reviewers can mean big things for your Amazon seller account. These guys are the big mouth Billy basses of the Amazon world, and we’re going to show you how to reel them in.

I posted before about being an Amazon top reviewer. I just wanted to let you know that I recently found out that BzzzAgent MAY be involved in activity that violates the Amazon terms of service. I don’t know about Smiley 360. However, if you serious about being a top reviewer, I would recommend not joining any groups or clubs outside of Amazon. It is more likely to get you in trouble than anything else. I just wanted to let you know.

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 use most of these sights I’ve been a member with bzzagent the longest about 4 years almost and have NEVER EVER Recieved a payment of gift card or payment of any kind..never heard of it either….loreal testing panel is bogus been there 4 years never got a thing did every survey ever…smiley 360 I’ve gotten s tons of stuff crowdtap and bzzagent tons of stuff.. Love it! Also if u like product reviewing go ok Facebook and look for review groups I used to be big in it and used to get literally 20 packages A day from Amazon for months without spending a dime! I have a mini washing machine coming this week for free got my son a scooter for Christmas ..got 100 pair of blue tooth headphones for my daughter I’ve gotten some Amazin stuff but most of that was pitching on my own

On Google Maps, you can write reviews for places you’ve visited. You can also leave info about a place, like if it’s quiet, lively, or romantic. These reviews and opinions are voluntary. We don’t pay reviewers for adding them to Google Maps.

As you are performing these searches, list the URLs of all the websites you come across that might give you a review. Depending on how you like to work, you may want to contact them as you come across them, or simply list all the ones you can find first. We think it’s a good habit to go ahead and contact them as soon as possible so you can quickly gauge a return on your efforts.

“review the products directory (type of products) amazon get paid to review products amazon”

For high-end products worth at least $50, take a look at Giveaway Service. You do need to be approved by each individual seller before you can receive the discount. They also offer a lot of free giveaways too.

Both Ooi and Tommy Noonan, founder of ReviewMeta, pointed out that I was likely seeing the extreme end of the spectrum because I was looking for cheap electronic commodities, where reviews can be make or break for would-be sellers. But ultimately, this is an effect of Amazon’s crowded marketplace. Tommy Noonan says that many sellers may be forced to turn to ginning up reviews somehow. “They’re caught in a Catch-22. You have to get reviews to sell, but to get reviews you need to sell products,” says Noonan.

If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!

So, based on my personal experience, and those of others who I read on forums and blogs, these few sites have the most opportunities when it comes to getting free Amazon products in exchange for reviews.

#5) I Love To Review is now Deal Hustl. You get redirected to that site. Page one asks for your first name and email. After you give them that, you get another page where you have to supply your full name and phone number. Seems scammy. Why do they need my phone number? Anyways, just wanted to give a heads up.

I myself don’t trust any of the” honest reviews” even if they are doing a honest review. Because there are far more fake “honest” reviews out there for me to look at and be tricked by them. I don’t know if those reviews are being honest in the first place. It’s like I have a lot of presents boxes. Inside *some* of them have actual gifts but *most* of the boxes contain bombs. I’m not risking my life for those presents (honest reviews), therefore I’m not going to get those presents. I’m going to get one that I know has a present inside (actual verified, paid full price reviews) because then I’m sure the results are not *as* skewed.

What I do care about re:reviews is that while you may be as good as gold, there is an unfortunate connotation that if someone gets something for free that there might be a to review less harshly. When it’s your money on the line you get more annoyed if something isn’t up to snuff. That’s a tendency.

Paid surveys is a great way to earn extra money on the side and plus the perks of getting free products and more. Don’t feel discourage and keep completing surveys and you’ll reap the benefits! Let me know if you need any other help.

(3) If you start the game and only get a black screen with a big blue cursor (sometimes I got music in the background, but I usually didn’t), this doesn’t appear to be a video compatibility issue, at least in our case. Once you get the Spore cursor on your screen, click command-Q. This will take you out of the game and give you a message that you must quit from inside the game. Click OK and then it takes you back to the game, but now you can see/hear everything. Odd, but it works – and it needs to be done every time you start the game.

There are no limits to how many deals you can claim each day after 2 pm EST. Each morning, you are only allowed to claim one deal to provide opportunities for other club members. Elite Deal Club sends out a daily email with 100-200 offers. Many people recommend Elite Deal Club for electronics and accessories including phone cases.

Some of these sites have a stupid point earning system, or only let you get 2 deals at a time. Don’t bother with this nonsense when there are other sites that will let you get 10, 20 or more deals at a time without having to earn points. And I let them know too how I feel about this, since they don’t tell you this until you have wasted your time enrolling with them. =(

Disconcertingly, not only were a lot of the cloned products for sale on Amazon positively drowning in successive, unverified five star reviews, but perhaps an even greater proportion were tagged Verified. These reviews all shared similar word patterns and either focused on or neglected the same features, while including a staggering amount of useless user pics as well. Of course the most blatant Fake giveaway was that they were uniformly peppered with multiple exclamation points and exhortations to Just Buy It!!!

I haven’t personally used this one, but I have seen other people talk about it. They have a one page website where you simply submit your email address and when they have products available for review you will get an email.

Sounds like the customer was still under the impression that discounted products meant you had to leave an incentivized review. Perhaps they just weren’t aware of it. As mentioned by others in this thread, if you didn’t break the rules I wouldn’t worry too much.

I said no such thing about Vine reviewers being “free from biases”. I am saying Vine reviewers are like non-Vine reviewers at Amazon–some reviews are good, some are bad, some are honest, some are dishonest. Those who read reviews need to do so in a critical manner. Not everyone is jealous of those who get things for free, but it’s a pretty common feeling among humans, yes. Some of those who are jealous will then write negative things out of jealousy, but my personal belief is most people are not vindictive. And if you would go back and read my first post, you will see I was not questioning or condemning the entire article, only the totally untrue statement that few Vine reviews were “negative or even critical”. Okay?

I had contacted them directly to review several of their products so I don’t want to hurt the relationship but their request was just unethical. I explained that and their response was an apology and that they understand the ethical concerns. That was that.

absolutely! the goodies should always be post the review more as a thank you gesture for the review, and not as an enticement for a good review. the moment you start doing it the other way round it loses its credibility.

I’ve stopped accepting anything free from companies, with the exception of books I get from NetGalley. I’ve had too many products that are just crappy, and I get way too many emails about products for review, mostly, these days, from Chinese companies.
