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.
