You are in no way obligated to give them a ‘good’ review, as you know. My advice is to simply respond with “I would love to review this, thanks!” After you get the product, feel free to send them feedback about asking you to write a ‘good’ review. Again, in my experience, no Seller has ever responded to my critiques of their emails. Which is why I wrote a blog post on the subject of writing better emails to Reviewers.

Because the market is getting saturated with these review sites, and a lot of people are now members of them, it’s becoming a seller’s market, which means they can offer you less and still get enough takers to make it worthwhile for them. Discounts are declining and in some cases, it appears the companies are actually making a targeted market out of the review sites from people who think they are getting a great discount, but are not.

When CR first crash-tested car seats, 12 out of 15 were rated Not Acceptable. After CR published its findings, the government required manufacturers to certify that their seats would pass a similar test.

Signed up for a few of these sites about two weeks ago. I have gotten some amazing products in to review, and have been pleased with every single item, so I gave each item a 4 or 5 star review. I am now reading all of the above comments about being banned from Amazon?! I would not want that to happen for sure. I a little confused. I get emails from Amazon all the time to review products that I have purchased through them, at full cost, and have now started doing that also. I don’t see why Amazon has a problem with a review that I have left, especially since I am stating in the review that I got a promotional discount for my honest and unbiased review. Hopefully this will continue to work for me.

My company’s products are caught up in FakeSpot as “F” and I am furious. All our reviews are legitimate and gathered over six years. Without knowing their algorithm detection, there is no way to assess accuracy. This is very harmful for companies who this happens to. I have emailed them twice waiting for a response.

The article has some good points but focuses a lot on fake reviews. More problematic in my opinion are the worthless reviews from real people who never actually used the product they got for free (or, nowadays, for a few pennies.) Or the Vine reviewer who eBays the products without opening the package – you can tell.

I’ve heard of Houseparty.com and forgot to mention them on this post, adding now. Even though they don’t pay it’s still great to get all the free stuff and have a get together at your house. Thanks girl!

Hi, I’m a reviewer on amazon as well and I just wanted to offer some advice to help some newer reviewer. If you do video demos of the product that you buy or receive for reviews and include pictures, sellers would be more incline to select you or reach out to you to review their product. Also breaking up your review in paragraphs or doing a pros and cons is great, and what I do is do a summery paragraph at the end and include in that other possible uses in such.

When it comes to get paid to review websites, RS is one of the most famous one. Its an international review site. You can write reviews on just about anything from electronics, hotels and restaurants to fashions, toys, books and everything else. Each review that you write, earns you $2, if it is on the hot topics requested by Review Stream. For any other reviews, members are paid %0.25 per review. On the top of that, each time a member votes for your review, you earn an additional $0.1. Once you have $50 in your account, you can request a payment, which will be paid to you via PayPal.

As from 19th Oct 2015 Amazon have announced that they are taking stronger action against fake reviews. This could be as a result of a nationwide article in a UK newspaper about the way people are fooled by the fake reviews.

Let me start by saying this: There are some authors (and product manufacturers) who post reviews of their own products. In other words, the reviews are fakes. Frauds. Phonies. A recent case with author RJ Ellory, caught him red-handed writing fake reviews under pseudonyms about his own books, and if that was not enough, he wrote disparaging reviews about his competitors (under pseudonyms, too). 

I recommend always sticking to your guns and only dealing with people who you believe won’t ask something shady of you. There are plenty of new products coming out every day so you won’t be missing out on anything. You’ll just feel better in the long run by keeping your integrity.

A review may not show on your item for one of two reasons. First, your item may not be eligible for review. Second, a review may not have been provided by a buyer. eBay prompts buyers to be the first to write products reviews.

Like a lot of people, we read Amazon reviews as part of our product research. Getting broad feedback on a product can be very useful when we’re looking for widespread issues or seeing how a company handles warranty claims. However, as time has gone by, we’ve begun to read user reviews with a far more critical eye.

At one point, you had to know someone who was in the game in order to get scheme of things. Groups were minimally exposed. Now, because of walk through websites such as this, Amazon has cracked down onow their review policies and have made it nearly impossible to do the correct way, without being sneaky. Thus, most groups have changed and the amount of products hasuch plummeted. Thanks to websites like yours. So, on behalf of seasoned reviewers and original reviewers, thanks for ruining our hobby!

Once you become a Top Reviewer, companies sometimes request you give them shout-outs on multiple social media accounts. The more expensive the product, the more advertising the companies will want from you in order to get items for free.

Does that unfairly skew star ratings however? Probably, and maybe there’s an opportunity there for something like an extension to provide a weighted score by scanning for discount review disclaimers. I think there is real value for everyone in these types of reviews when they’re done right so as to minimize influencing the reviewer as much as possible, although it may be more qualitative than quantitative.

People are going to complain, and sometimes about strange or silly things. While these reviews bring down the average, a higher ratio of positive reviews should balance things out. Publishing all levels of reviews shows that you keep it real.

Do you have one main Twitter account or multiple accounts for each company? Would there be a conflict with writing reviews/feedback on products for different companies (i.e Influenster, Smiley360, etc) on the same account?

You can find many items as low as 10 cents. Sometimes, you can even buy something for a penny before shipping. While other review sites have a books category, Jump Send also seems to be one of the few that usually has books available at discounted prices and several free downloadable PDFs.

HI, thanks, it’s a nice article.  You suggest a gif card to ensure the review is accepted and marked as verified.Other option may be a promo code of 99% and free shipping, then send the code to the reviewer. Amazon may penalize  this option? Thanks

@lee_fyock:disqus Products have trouble standing on their own because we’ve all trained ourselves to be biased against anything “new”, and need the consensus of many others to overcome that. While that’s generally great, it does mean new products and brands have a hard time getting the initial momentum they need to get the more organic word-of-mouth going, even if they are delivering something of real quality.

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.

As mentioned, Elite Deals Club needs serious work. I had great success the first few weeks, until that fateful day I received the ‘code not found’. Got one reply to the email I sent, a standard ‘make sure you’re doing everything right’ reply that didn’t even address this particular issue. Several months later, I am still unable to access anything. The site does a constant redirect to login. Soon as you login and try to view the deals it refreshes and takes you right back to login. If you check their Facebook page you will find hundreds of complaints about this issue, but no ones ever got it working again. I had recommended this site to several friends, who experienced the same. Interestingly enough, I unsubscribed from the daily emails several times, but still receive them occasionally.

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.

@Wirecutter/LAUREN DRAGAN – you might have been able to write a more persuasive piece if you dug around a bit before you wrote the piece. Seems like you could have done a bit more digging to really get some interest in all these fake damn reviews. However, I believe wirecutter benefits tremendously from links/fwd to amazon products – so you might be biting the hand that feeds you.

You won’t find a selection of products by going to their site, but rather a landing page that’s only used for registering a new account. They are a bit more strict in their process for giving out discounts.

Thank you so much for this list!! I’ve had great luck with snagshout, elitedealclub, and amazingdealsgroup. I love oz naturals as well. Also another company that lets you buy their full size products for around $1 in exchange for a review is Instanatural. Just sign up for their emails on their website and they’ll send you opportunities to try their products.

Upon registration, the website will award you with 200 deal tickets that can be useful for immediate redemption or discount codes. Your deal tickets will accumulate after you put in more and more reviews!

Despite all this, it’s usually pretty simple to keep getting deals as long you leave decent, honest reviews. I haven’t had a problem with them yet. Just be sure to snag deals quickly before they run out.

As for being attacked, don’t write your review with that fear in mind. You are supposed to be writing for the customer in mind. I wrote a negative review about some probiotics once, and it gets more up-votes than any other product I reviewed recently. I still get asked to review probiotics (which I don’t accept anymore.)

Plus, most get paid to reviews sites emphasize on writing reviews based on your true experience, and if you don’t, they will eventually catch up with you, which might lead you to lose your chance to get paid to review.

Companies get reviews by offering free or discounted products to our Exclusive Reviewers email list.  And reviewers can subscribe to our FREE email list to see listings from companies who seek reviews and comments online by offering review copies and product samples, too. 

You don’t need Vine to participate in Amazon giveaway’s and discounts. Check out amzrc.com for some awesome deals that you can get for a huge discount. Just leave an honest review in exchange for getting such a great deal!

Dollar club sometimes offers expensive products for $1 If you know of a real good site, do let me know. Remember that if you tell me because you are promoting your site, be sure to get a bad review if it sucks and or nothing on the site.

Now, the companies you have listed gives out free products in return for a review so you can help them market their These products you are reviewing is already in stores so all the companies need from you is a review.

Still, it’s not likely that merchants are going to stop trying to game the system. More is at stake than ever before: The National Retail Federation expects online sales to jump as much as 10 percent to $117 billion this holiday season. 

3.      Request Amazon reviews via newsletter and social media. Chances are, the folks subscribed to your newsletter and your fans on Facebook already like you, so why not ask them for reviews? There’s a decent chance they’ve already bought a product from you, so they can provide legitimate, positive Amazon customer reviews. In our article about getting reviews on Yelp, we noted that Yelp discouraged directly soliciting reviews. Amazon, on the other hand, is much more lax.

they have never given me the opportunity, though there was only 1 time that they said that they would send me a product to test, but they didn’t say that i would get any points or anything for it, nor be able to test other products. like you, i want to test products. however, i not looking for the products, but to get paid for doing it.

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?

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!

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.

Amazon is making a significant change to its Community Guidelines, announced today, which will eliminate any incentivized reviews, except for those that emerge from within its own Amazon Vine program. This program allows Amazon – not the seller or vendor – to identify trusted reviewers, and has a number of controls in place in order to keep bias out of the review process.

“Thanks for asking me to review your product. I want to let you know that I feel uncomfortable being asked by a 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).

Please Note:  Recent changes to Amazon.com’s terms of service prohibit “incentivized reviews”.  This means that reviewers can not accept free or discounted products (or other incentives) in exchange for providing reviews on Amazon.com or its affiliated shopping services.  Please do not use our service for these purposes.

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!

Think about it from their angle: a romance novelist is looking for people to review her book, and she sees your profile where it only says “KittyBooBoo” for the name and an email that matches, of course. No reviews, no other profile info. So, no way is she is going to ask you to review her book since it would likely be a waste of her time emailing you. But, if a camera manufacturer comes across your profile and sees you are a photographer, with well-written reviews on other cameras and related gear, and a link to your blog where you write about camera gear or photography, then yes, they may likely contact you.

They have a huge marketplace with a broad range of products from apparel, home decor, headphones, accessories for electronics, kitchen gear, knives, workout supplements and much more! Available for product testers in in the UK, USA, Ireland, France and Canada.

Would love to be a Vine reviewer….I currently help people online at no cost when they encounter a problem with merchandise. I have also solved alot of issues here on Amazon when company’s blame Amazon for selling faulty products. Would love to review products!

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.

Chattykathy16, I’m not sure how much Amazon is still promoting the Vine Review program. I haven’t received a listening of books from them in over five months. I do know that in order to be considered for the program that you have to write lots of product reviews for the site.

The Echo is a good listener. Hidden within are seven noise-cancelling microphones that use “far-field” voice recognition technology. All that really means is that it’s good at hearing you even when you aren’t next to it, and even when there’s other chatter going on. In my home, the Echo can understand me just fine from several feet away, even when I’ve got the TV on. And, if you’ve got more than one Echo device in your home, only the one nearest to you should respond.

The discussion is great! I also want to know the honest reviewer to review my product and tell me how I can do better or pad my shoulder for a strenght to on going. When we are still small in biz, all those encouragement, comments and reviews are important.

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.

A couple of years ago, I was contacted by a company that had seen a review I had written on Amazon and wanted to send me a comparable item to check out. The only caveat was that in exchange for the free item, I needed to post an honest review to Amazon. Of course, I agreed to this arrangement – I love receiving free stuff and sharing my opinion, so this seemed like a great opportunity.

With hundreds of millions of items for sale, from electronics and books to pet supplies and diapers, Amazon is unquestionably the largest online retailer on the planet. In fact, Amazon, from a market cap perspective, is even larger today than Walmart.

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.

Pick a seller (if the product has more than one) to send your request to. Try to find the sellers email on their page, or thought Google or Facebook. If you can’t, just message them on Amazon by clicking “Ask a question” on their page.

This issue of valid reviews is just as bad, if not worse, in the Amazon Video section — especially for Indie Films. One called “Fragmented” is a recent example. An awful film somehow achieved a 4.5 star rating; may positive reviews, all with similar wording, and all on the same day.

Secret Deals Club can also be advantageous if you live on the U.S. west coast as other sites send their deals out for the Eastern time zone. If you aren’t an early riser, you might miss out on the best deals if you use another review site.

I have 390 organic reviews in almost 2 years of selling only one product and my business was doing great on Amazon until some new kid on the block came up with over 300 unverified 5 stars reviews in one month to advertise a product similar to mine. I contacted Amazon to complain and the answer was: Anyone who has purchased $50 or more can post a review of any product. Seriously?! Totally dishonest, and deceptive. The story is that now my sales have dropped more than 50% thanks to the Amazon algorithms that show the other product first and although mine has 4 Stars reviews all organic vs 5-Stars from the competition, anyone will think the other product is better because of the reviews (fake reviews). I’m hating Amazon now. If anyone can guide to the company that can get me unverified reviews, I will greatly appreciate it.

They have a huge marketplace supporting reviewers in 12 countries. And a contest they run each week giving away a $25 voucher. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China.

I do NOT contact companies before I write a bad review about a product. There was one time where I wrote a bad review about some earphones and the company sent out another set because they thought mine were faulty. Second set worked better, so I amended my review. I also once got asked to take down a bad review stating ‘I did not know how to use the product’ (they were ear buds.) I do not take do reviews, only amend them.

Using these sites and being a member of these clubs and groups is the single most easiest way to get you amazon account banned and all of your reviews wiped. There’s an enormous amount of great info on the amazon forums that will prove this to be true. Paying for these items is not a deal at all. The sellers are making money off of you. It costs literally pennies to produce the cheap items and the seller us making MORE profit off of the people in these review groups than they would by legitimately selling the items – no one would buy them! Also, 99% of the group admins on these Facebook groups and ALL of the sites make a profit off of YOU because they sell the service of providing reviews to the sellers. Which is why the accounts get banned and the sellers get banned… it’s paid reviews and that is against amazons TOS. Also, the rules of the groups and clubs violate the TOS in other ways such as saying if you cannot leave a 4 or 5 star review then contact the seller first.. no, that’s not how it’s supposed to work and that very thing is against the TOS. You leave the coorect review no matter if it is 1 star or 5 star. Telling you to contact them first is MANIPULATION. Guess what they say when you contact them? They tell you to not review the item. Or they will drag it out and waste time stalling the bad review by offering to send you a replacement product. Guess what? The replacement is also a piece of junk. So when you contact them about the junk replacement, guess what they say? They tell you to just not review it and make up excuses about how it must be a bad batch of products or amazon damaged the items during shipping. It’s a lie and it’s just to get you to take the seller’s side, pity them, etc. The group and site owners/admins will also go along with these lies and manipulation. Because they want to keep getting paid, keep getting free products, and keep earning money off of all of the members who purchase these items using their referral links. They try to act like the seller is providing you with a great opportunity or deal, but it’s not a deal or great opportunity at all! It only helps the seller and the sellers only care about themselves. They try to make you think the sellers are saints and such good people to be offering these free and discounted items when the truth is the dollar or so that you lay for the item is more than the item is even worth and it is a dollar that the seller would have made without suckering you into reviewing their cheap junk. So, they make money off of you, plus they get positive reviews on their products to try and convince other shoppers to buy it.. they’re using you to lie for them and say the item is wonderful and scam someone else out of money. These groups and sites DO NOT help shoppers. Most shoppers could care less about your reviews and will automatically bypass any review of free stuff because they know how these groups and sites work. Just read the amazon forums like I said earlier. The forums are amazon customers. The customers know all about these groups and all about the fake reviews and they discuss it heavily. The only person being fooled by all this is the person who pays the dollar and writes the review.

If you sign up for dhgate’s magazine/catalog then every month when they mail it to you there are at least 4 samples inside like eye brightener, velvet skin coat cream, etc. I got one yesterday actually.

If you’re looking to test big ticket items like vacuum cleaners, game systems, electronics and more, this panel is for you!  Also, you can sign up to be a paid mystery shopper, and dine in restaurants.  In return, you must provide them with a review. 💰 Pays by Free Merchandise

You have to wonder If there is a negativity bias behind this article. Its like they’re implyingnyhay negative reviews are more legitimate than positive. However. When someone has an ax. to grind its not unusual for them to get friends to gangup on a product and lost very extreme negative reviews in an effort to take down someone they dislike. That’s a far worse problemproblem the negative review trolls.

This is Etekcity’s program to help promote the Etekcity brand and Amazon storefront. All products (kitchen scales, diagnostic tools, infrared thermometers, wireless products and more) are from the Etekcity brand.

Sounds about right (par for the course). Get an listed telephone number and then use the old one solely as an Amazon dedicated line, if the additional expense isn’t prohibitive. Also, naturally, now the vendor will start retaliating by “negging” your other reviews (happens all the time).

” +how to review amazon products for a discount”

It wasn’t hard finding cheap dongle deals on Amazon. The problem was the huge variance in the reviews — often for ostensibly the exact same product. It’s an issue I’d noticed plenty of times while hunting for cheap electronics on Amazon, but I couldn’t stop trying to figure out the rhyme or reason behind it all.

Each of the John Doe defendants has offered, and continues to offer, to create Amazon reviews for $5 or more. Amazon has conducted an extensive investigation of the defendants’ activities on Fiverr, including purchasing “reviews” for products and communicating directly with some of the defendants. Most of the defendants promise  positive or 5-star reviews for Amazon sellers’ products. Indeed, many encourage the Amazon seller to create the text for their own review. For example, Fiverr seller “bess98” in her “I will do, Amazon, Reviews, Amazon, Reviews, for $5” Gig promises to post “awesome review on your amazon product.” Below is a screenshot of bess98’s Amazon review Gig overview, which is typical of the offers on Fiverr to create inauthentic Amazon reviews: 6.

crowdtap is great i won almost 100 bucks in gift cards total over 2 months, the person above what they mean is when it comes to food stuff, they send a whole box of goodies like hidden valley ranch had one through them and you got a huge bottle of ranch, dipping bowls, packets, coupons. stuff like that.

Influenster: Influenster is looking for social media influencers to spread the word about products that range anywhere from single cup coffee makers to the newest cosmetics. You can get one item to review or a box of products to review.

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.

Hi, I’m a reviewer on amazon as well and I just wanted to offer some advice to help some newer reviewer. If you do video demos of the product that you buy or receive for reviews and include pictures, sellers would be more incline to select you or reach out to you to review their product.

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!”)

Would love to be a Vine reviewer….I currently help people online at no cost when they encounter a problem with merchandise. I have also solved alot of issues here on Amazon when company’s blame Amazon for selling faulty products. Would love to review products!

You may also want to try using one of the many campaign companies to help you get reviews. Companies like Honest Few, I Love to Review, and Reviews for Free (to name a few) can help get your product in front of reviewers and reviews posted with in a week or so thereafter. It’s far easier than doing it yourself.

The entire sale is completed through Amazon and you enter a discount or promo code on the checkout screen to get the product for a rock-bottom price. You will still be responsible for any shipping costs.

Only choose products you’re really interested in, and don’t feel compelled to select something just for the sake of a review. If you don’t really want or need the item, you can just skip a month or two.

I’ve seen a tea product review with 1000s of good reviews, and looking deeper it was a combination of reviews from other tea flavours because they lumped them all together in one listing (with the choice of changing the flavour before adding to cart). It sucks, you can’t see the reviews specific to that flavour and it’s misleading if you don’t take your time to look.

While you want to keep those review forms as short as possible, consider any vital information others need to make an educated buying decision. A fashion store may want to ask if a product fits “true to size” or not. A photography store can benefit from knowing if the reviewer is an amateur or professional.

They have a huge marketplace supporting reviewers in 12 countries. And a contest they run each week giving away a $25 voucher. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China.

You can review the way you want, but I suggest you treat every product as if you bought it, just the way real Amazon customers would feel about it. If you feel it is faulty and can be fixed, try contacting the company and asking for a replacement.

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 are 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.

I have used over 25 codes and all have gone through for me. You have to open the unberclub email asap to still have codes available that work and aren’t sold out. Good luck ladies. I would say 1 in 10 codes don’t work by time I get the item into my inbox.

I do think there is a notable difference between ‘free’ and ‘discounted’, paying even a couple dollars for something seems to have some notable psychological effect. So I’m not a fan of Vine, which does special shipments of things a reviewer might not have any interest in at zero cost. However, *some* of these discount-in-exchange-for-a-review sites my wife has been using actually have some merit.

I recently signed up with Elite Deal Club. Basically you can get free/ deeply discounted products in exchange for an honest unbiased review on Amazon. I don’t think it would be worth it if you don’t have Amazon prime, since you would have to pay shipping. I have gotten 18 products so far. Totally worth it!!!

2.      Send follow-up emails after an Amazon purchase asking for feedback. Amazon asks for feedback following a purchase, but it’s a generic email with nothing special. Instead, send personalized review requests; ideally you want to send them shortly after they’ve received your product so its awesomeness is still fresh in their minds. You can even use a site like FeedbackFive to automatically send customized feedback request emails. Make it really easy for users to leave a review by including a link.

And it doesn’t even need to be as complicated as that. video went viral earlier this year purporting to show a click farm in China, with thousands of phones dedicated to inflating the scores of mobile apps. Ooi says similar operations exist, based mainly in China and Eastern Europe, to do the same for Amazon reviews.

As Product Elf has grown in popularity so quickly, they have over 40,000 reviewers, discount codes can disappear quickly. New offers are uploaded on a daily basis as sellers are launching new products all the time.

Wow, uh, I’m reading the comments here and they are not like the usual MUO type of comments. They all seem sort of bot-ish right down to the names — “Jodie Jones, “Betty Booker,” etc. And 125? How often does any MUO article get that many comments? Something just doesn’t seem right…

My question is, on my profile should I have it set on “Hide all activity on your profile”? I didn’t want other people/reviewers looking at my reviews to purposely give it a” not helpful” mark. Will this prevent me from receiving offers from sellers? I didn’t see this covered. I appreciate your help.

No. Starting on May 6, product reviews will be available for those listings that are eligible. eBay sellers who previously opted out of product reviews on My eBay will 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.

One fatal flaw in *any* commentary on items that are purchased vs. items that are offered in exchange for review is that it assumes a higher quality review will come from someone who has paid. Some of the worst reviews come from people who bought products because they felt no obligation to really test them, but rated them based on something trivial – such as the product not being the size they wanted or lacking a feature they wanted even though it was never advertised as having that feature and measurements were given clearly. People review DVDs not based on the media, packaging, or value, but on how well they liked the content and wanting to promote their favorite program.

Studies have shown that word of mouth is the most powerful marketing tool – even in an online age, when a fellow human being tells us about something great, we listen with open ears. Although our lives are vastly different than our neanderthal ancestors, we aren’t as far removed as we think. We are still programmed to make choices based on the actions of others. There is safety in numbers with the herd mentality, so when we see a lot of people recommending an item and saying they HAVE to have it, we tend to feel likewise.

Another problem in not having any control over who takes the coupons is that not all reviewers are sane people. My products are good. Less than 5% of the reviews have 3 stars. All the rest are 4 or 5 stars. But someone gave me a 2 star. When I looked at this person’s other reviews, I saw that she habitually gives bad reviews to products that generally receive good reviews. She is obviously a disgruntled or maybe careless/thoughtless/jealous/nasty individual. Had I seen her track record I would never have approved her to receive my product.

Amazon converted the raw emails into a “Send an Email” link, and it was indeed broken for a while. I contacted Amazon Help via Twitter and they sent it on to the development team there. Just tried it and it looks like it works for me now. Are you not seeing the “Send an Email” link on the profile pages on the left side under the profile image?

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!

“best amazon product review ever +amazon product review request template”

And closing things out, we have this Asfour Crystal Tut Anhk Amon Chair. According to the product description, the chair is made with some of the finest crystal in the world and took about 630 hours to build. When it was available (apparently someone actually bought this thing) it ran at about $140,000.

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.

This is why a responsible reviewer sets aside time each day or week to update reviews. I do mine weekly. If, during the week, I notice a product has failed to perform, has performed better than I thought initially, or has some feature that I’ve just discovered, I go back and update. Products have gone from five stars to one, and from two to four. Each time, I leave my original review, and amend it to add my new thoughts or findings.

Please do review the novella Before We Were Perfect by S.D. Moore. It’s a romantic dramedy based on true events that has humor and intense military, health and adult themed drama without being raunchy. The true events are discussed in the afterword. The page count on Amazon is incorrect. The book has 198 pages. The Kindle version has three formatting issues that are beyond the control of the publisher. A review is greatly appreciated.

I can 100% guarantee you that BzzAgent does *not* pay you. They never have. I think you might be confusing them with another company. BzzAgent will award MyPoints for surveys and some activities, however.

My trip into the upside-down world of Amazon reviews of cheapo electronics began because of a lost dongle. I was on an early morning flight with two chatty dudes behind me, bonding over living in Brooklyn and working in consulting. I badly wanted to drown out the conversation, but my wireless headphones were dead and I couldn’t find the 3.5 mm-to-Lightning dongle that’d let me plug my earbuds in. Luckily, I am a galaxy-brain genius, and came up with the brilliant solution to avoid this in the future: I would just buy a bunch of dongles.

More than 39,400 reviews have been published through our service until March 2016. We help brands discover and connect with thousands of influential people who blog and share content via social networks.

This is not at all how Amazon reviews work as of 10/2016 according to GiveAwayService.com I was very disappointed to read this after 2 hours of researching and beginning the process. See article below: https://www.giveawayservice.com/blog/update-on-amazon-customer-reviews

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 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.

Took me all of 2 min to go through a half dozen products posted on the Amazon Shill/Club Review Sites and compared them to the Amazon listing. Surprise, most if not all the positive reviews were shills ‘discounts’ and nearly all the negative reviews were from actual users…some of the shill reviews gave 5 starts for products that didn’t even work! In one dash cam example I found, the video quality was so poor, it rendered it useless…and the reviewer still gave it 5 stars!

3. Always tell the truth! Brands need truthful people to evaluate their products. If you lie, companies will not know if they need to make any improvements to their products. Also, you can get yourself removed from their program, and not get paid.

“how to get products for free amazon review _how to sign up to review products for amazon”

The Vine program, and similar methods of eliciting feedback, give away products for free (or sell them at a deep discount) to potential customers vetted (by Amazon in the case of the Vine program) for the helpfulness their reviews, in exchange for an “honest review.” While these sorts of reviews are far more ethical than paid-for reviews, they can also be a little problematic. Even if the way the review was obtained is disclosed on product pages, several aspects of the purchasing process don’t get considered as part of these programs.

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.

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.

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.

Your suspicions are not without warrant. It’s a fact that these “incentivized” reviewers are much more likely to rate something 5-stars than anyone else: http://reviewmeta.com/blog/analysis-of-7-million-amazon-reviews-customers-who-receive-free-or-discounted-item-much-more-likely-to-write-positive-review/

yes I have left 1 2 and 3 star reviews many times and I continue to receive products all the time. I rarely give 5 stars because my review was solicited. I feel by giving 4 stars it is helping offset the fact that my review was solicited. But when I do give 5 stars teh product deserves it. I think the only product I gave 5 stars to in the past few weeks was for a set of flybar stilts for my son. they really deserve 5 stars.

Customer reviews are one of the most valuable tools we offer customers for making informed purchase decisions, and we work hard to make sure they are doing their job. In just the past year, we’ve improved review ratings by introducing a machine learned algorithm that gives more weight to newer, more helpful reviews; applying stricter criteria to qualify for the Amazon verified purchase badge; and suspending, banning or suing thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.

All of that said, the Echo is more than a music streamer, just as an iPhone is more than a telephone. The key is Alexa. She’s helpful, she’s capable and she’s mostly good at understanding what I’m asking of her, enough so to put her right on par with Apple’s Siri as far as virtual assistants go.

“We all like to think we can always stay objective. But if you didn’t purchase the product to fill a need, the flaws just don’t bother you as much. And if you don’t have to consider sending it back, you’re not going to think about the flaws as much.”

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.

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.

But, it looks like providing an accurate email address was the correct thing to do. Most people don’t want to comment on your reviews with their contact info. I guess they would probably get a lot of requests from random people.

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.

What’s slightly ironic about all of this is that Amazon made a major push at the end of last year to clean up its reviews system. Until October of 2016, Amazon reviews were glutted with reviews from what was informally known as Amazon review clubs. The review clubs worked like this: You’d sign up, get a free or heavily discounted product, whether it was an egg-cracker or a queen-size mattress, and in exchange you’d post a review. You just had to include words to the effect of “I received this product at a discount/for free in exchange for my honest review” somewhere in your review. It was an ideal ecosystem for many. Consumers got items on the cheap. Sellers got five-star reviews (the “honest” part was largely lip service; Ooi of Fakespot says anyone who didn’t post five-star reviews would quickly find themselves iced out of the review club). The person running the review club could charge sellers for access to customers.

Amazon says: “Be sincere: We welcome your honest opinion about the product or service. We do not remove reviews because they are critical. We believe all helpful information can inform our customers’ buying decisions.” Source.

Also, each Amazon review site can limit how many discounts you can redeem each month. This ensures other customers can also find great deals and helps verify you are taking the time required to accurately test a product.

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 will check out your blog! I had Googled “test products for free” and the first thing that came up was a link to your blog about earning free money along with the article on Squidoo lol I liked that it was a real person that is testing stuff so I’m glad I commented on this!

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.

I actually think the worst part is when Vine people get items they wouldn’t normally purchase, didn’t really want and don’t know how to use and therefore end up giving a good item poor marks because they don’t understand it. e.g., a great gaming headset getting mediocre reviews from people who clearly are not gamers and never mentioned most of the device’s features (macros, microphone, equalizer, etc).

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

Based on all the great feedback and comments, I am looking to spin up a website for reviewers where we can all get together and learn from each other, share stories and information. Does anyone have interest in something like that?

Manufacturers use different techniques to solicit reviews. They may offer free products, or discounted products, that reviewers can get using a code on Amazon. I think the point of the discount is that, perhaps, free products don’t show as Verified Purchases.

You have a few ways to suss out what may be a fake review. The easiest way is to use Fakespot. This site allows you to paste the link to any Amazon product and receive a score regarding the likelihood of fake reviews.

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.

They offer discounts for a variety of products, although, health and beauty tend to be the most common category. The offerings largely depend on their merchant partnerships so the deals are always changing.

5.      Reach out with a thoughtful e-mail. Time to plead your case, so put on those puppy-dog eyes! Explain to the target that you found their review on Amazon and that you’d like to send them a product you believe they might be interested in. Don’t send out one soulless generic mass email – personalize the message showing that you’ve read up on the reviewer and seen their past reviews. Maybe comment on one review you found especially illuminating or clever. Personalizing your messages greatly improves your chances of getting a reply, so be sure to implement some considerate correspondence.

This is a creative, visually impressive, fun game for kids – I think the bad reviews are by gamers who play through as fast as possible in order to “beat the game” – but Spore is not that type of game. There are so many different possible combinations of creatures to be custom designed & evolved from a cell. Once evolved to a complex creature they become civilized and you take them though stages of civilization from tribal all the way up to space. Along the way you also custom create villages, buildings, vehicles, industry, etc for your creatures. You can conquer neighboring villages if you like a little bit of battle. My son is 10 & discovered this game from popular gaming youtubers, who also rated the game highly. The limited install issue is not that big of a deal – you’re probably not going to need to install it more than 3 times & it’s not an expensive game to get if you do.

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.

I think The Wirecutter is too easy on the Vine program. I refuse to buy any product where the reviews are filled with “I received this product at a discount for my honest opinion.” How honest can people be with something free? Why can’t the product stand on its own without a bunch of handouts for people to review?

How do I know they are fake you ask… Easy, look at the other products that the person has reviewed, there usually are not any, but when they are they are all from the same seller. Another way is that someone will have like 50 reviews in a 2 day period, but then no other positive reviews, ever. Another way, You will see a reviewer review different products with different descriptions about who they are (e.g., “I am a professional plumber so…”, “As a professional photographer, I think…”, “As a large man, I found…”, “As a single mother…” all from the same person). Another indicator is when they use the same broken English in multiple 5 star reviews or misspell the exact same word the same way under different names (no verified purchase, of course). Of course, none of these are 100% guarantees they are fake, but once you start looking for them, it becomes obvious.

This is Etekcity’s program to help promote the Etekcity brand and Amazon storefront. All products (kitchen scales, diagnostic tools, infrared thermometers, wireless products and more) are from the Etekcity brand.

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.

I have 390 organic reviews in almost 2 years of selling only one product and my business was doing great on Amazon until some new kid on the block came up with over 300 unverified 5 stars reviews in one month to advertise a product similar to mine. I contacted Amazon to complain and the answer was: Anyone who has purchased $50 or more can post a review of any product. Seriously?! Totally dishonest, and deceptive. The story is that now my sales have dropped more than 50% thanks to the Amazon algorithms that show the other product first and although mine has 4 Stars reviews all organic vs 5-Stars from the competition, anyone will think the other product is better because of the reviews (fake reviews). I’m hating Amazon now. If anyone can guide to the company that can get me unverified reviews, I will greatly it.

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!”

Be constructive with your review: each negative mark should have a recommendation of how to improve it. No one likes a reviewer that just hammers away at a book/product without suggestions to improve it.

Lowercase Alpha is looking for beta testers for smartphone apps. They send you apps that haven’t launched yet so you can give them feedback. Available worldwide (though I believe you need a North American phone number to sign up.)

Unlike Amazon’s in-house Vine review program that is invitation only, anybody can apply to become a shopper on these Amazon review sites. If you like trying out products and leaving honest feedback, you are an excellent candidate for reviewing products sold on Amazon.

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.

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.

Hi Lou:) Congratulations and continued $ucce$$ with your blog site. It is absolutely awesome!:) Ive been doing product reviews online at Amazon and a few at my wordpress site (lilvix811@wordpress.com) with the hope of finding a way to earn while I write. I have already reviewed the good paying product companies and see that you have endorsed them. Good minds think alike:)) I am still deciding which one works for me and hope to enjoy what I love doing most, that is, besides dancing (Astaire) which also takes top priority, of course:)) That said, again many thanks and hope to share some good news soon. Be well and God bless….lilvix811 (Lori B)

This review program is part of ARCTIC Cooling Inc., maker of computer cooling solutions, computer and mobile phones accessories. Like similar programs, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. Available for reviewers in UK, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, USA.

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.

They have a huge marketplace supporting reviewers in 12 countries. And a contest they run each week giving away a $25 voucher. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China.

You can find many items for free or only $1 at iReviewHome. You do need to be approved by each individual seller before you can claim the discount code. To improve your approval chances, complete an A.R.T. profile that can quickly help sellers make a decision about your request.

Everything for sale on Loot Hoot is 40% to 100% off! Another cool reason to try out Loot Hoot is their weekly contest for a $25 Amazon gift card. You gain entries every time you apply for an offer, share a Loot Hoot offer on social media, and for each day you login to Loot Hoot.

In reply to Janet above, I am one of those sellers whose promo codes keep giving reviewer the message “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.” It seems to be an Amazon problem, and I as well as other seller am trying to get it resolved. Thank you so much for your honest reviews-it gives our business practical advice on where we need to improve. Thanks.

Another great sites where you get paid for writing reviews. Epinions is a shopping.com company where members can earn money by writing useful reviews about different products. there is no limit to how many reviews you can write. The more reviews you write, the more money you make. The first 10 reviews that you write, earn you $10, 20 to 30 reviews earn you $20, writing 30-39 reviews earn you $30, and so on. Every time you write a review you receive what are called “Eroyalties credits”, which are redeemable in US dollars. When you accumulated $10 in your account, you can request to be paid, which will be paid to you by check.

This means that at any one time, there is only one product for you to order, test, and review. You can’t do two or more together and you can’t start your next review before the Snagshout team verified your review.

We will give you a detailed and deep social media product review on Amazon products, that will describe the benefits of buying from you and explain to the potential buyers how much they are missing out!

Wow, I am sorry to hear about that, Todd. Although some may say it’s the way of capitalism, I personally don’t think that’s right, they get your product with a discount in exchange for their review, but they turn around and try to compete with you.

By joining the Facebook group and email list, you can receive everything Product Review Club has to offer. Most items only cost $1 and you are asked to leave honest feedback after trying it out. There will be different offers each day, so, it can always truly be a surprise. You can apply for as many offers as you want.

Thanks for the update, James. You are correct. This is now against Amazon’s TOS, however, it’s still encouraged to leave a review. We highly recommend this as well, as sometimes sellers will only give discounts to shoppers who have strong seller profiles.

If they see you’re unlikely to leave reviews, they most likely won’t give it to you. For this reason we recommend leaving a few reviews on products you’ve previously purchased before trying AMZ Review Trader.

Katia, thanks for the heads up. I did some digging and found out that they didn’t actually end the program. They updated their site and in the process have changed some of their pages and their URLs. I found the correct page and have updated the link. It should now take you to their signup/login page for their panel.

A slew of new sites offering cash back have popped up to help you save at checkout. One popular option, Ebates.com, lets you opt for scheduling in-store pickups instead of delivery, if that’s more convenient for you. The pickup option also guarantees you don’t pay for shipping. 

Agreed, I’ve received discounted products to review as well and I am a Prime Amazon member so I’d hate to fool my fellow consumers. Just because I received it with a heavy discount doesn’t mean I’m handing out stars like a kindergarten teacher. It really just takes common sense to figure out if a product is worth buying or giving a shot.

Amazon is the place where people can find essential items at good prices or profitably to sell their merchandize. This website has been helping out business owners and common folk for many years. Time for you to harness its potential and make profitable deals.

Dealgogogo is more like the combined pros of Snagshout and AmzReviewtrader. With strong connection with manufactories, the site is designed to benefit shopper/reviewer, focusing on shopper/reviewer experience and meanwhile trust reviewer will do the review as promised.

I just signed up for this because my cousins were posting all of these awesome things they were getting for free. well so far every free thing I have asked to review has charged me on amazon when I put in the code. it puts the item free but charges me im guessing for shipping but it didn’t have a shipping charge. and how is it they are getting these amazing things and the only options I get are little tiny things. I think I found a total of 4 neat things the rest were pills or lame things. I dunno I just don’t think its really free if were I wouldn’t be getting charged . maybe you can shed some light on the situation im in cuz honestly I was just thinking about canceling everything. I just think my cousins are lieing and they are paying for the neater items jus to get people to join their groups so they can rank up. I dunno any help you can give me would be appreciated. the amazon help center doesn’t help at all all they do is email you back saying that they cant respond to your email and send u back to the same site u sent the email from the old run around is what I call it

“amazon product review tips +products with funny reviews on amazon”

That is one reason why Amazon has become so popular and is arguably the most successful e-commerce site in Internet history. Now, it is even possible to shop for free when you shop through an Amazon review site.

I am a product designer and create a new brand in Amazon. I read lots of promotion and started to invest my time and resources however there are millions millions of “case” even though I am offering some designer’s fashion but it will take long long time for my design to surface out, should I need to wait for “step by step” moving or aggressively shift to other less competitive catalogue to start other product design?

In a blog post, Amazon said it’s improving its review ratings by introducing an algorithm that gives weight to reviews that are more helpful. It said it’s also suspending, banning or suing “thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.” 

Savvy shoppers almost never purchase a product without knowing how it’s going to work for them. They read the good, the not-so-good, and the downright ugly to make the all-important decision: should I pull out my wallet and take the plunge?

I mostly agree, but I’ve been on Amazon since 1996 and don’t think I’ve ever received an invite. It’s possible that I received an invite when Vine debut, but turned it down because I was too busy at the time and just never received another one. Regardless, I’ve purchased a lot on Amazon and have written reviews for almost everything, simply because I believe reviews are important to online shopping, but I’ve waited for a Vine invite for years without receiving one.

No. All Vine products are submitted by vendors to Amazon, and distributed by Amazon to the Vine Voices. Vendors have no contact with the Vine Voices, and have no influence over which Vine Voices will review their products.

Amazon is the place where people can find essential items at good prices or profitably to sell their merchandize. This website has been helping out business owners and common folk for many years. Time for you to harness its potential and make profitable deals.

I’ve been on the top 500 Reviewers list for a while and have occasionally contemplated contacting sellers and asking for a specific product to review, but never have because it just seems tacky to me. As far as I know, doing so isn’t against Amazon TOS. It IS FCC regulation that you must disclose in your review that you received a discounted or free sample to review.

Let’s say I am an Amazon seller and I want to get some reviews on my product(s) in order to drive up the sales. Finding buyers individually and contacting them would be time-consuming and tedious. Not to mention, you can’t be sure if the people who you send your product to for free will even leave a review.

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.

So give this exercise a bit of elbow grease and see where it gets you. The best way to manage this is to spend a good 15 minutes a day contacting websites and blogs on your list. You’ll get through it in no time.

Jungle Launch has an interesting concept where it actually consolidates multiple Amazon sellers in their collective effort to enhance the visibility of their products in the market. This arrangement certainly works well for me as I can be exposed to a great variety of products without going many places to look for them. Again the reward is free products or super fantastic discounts.

When asking for reviews, make sure you’re asking the right questions. You don’t just want to know if your customers liked the product. You want to know how they’re using it (explanation, photo, video), who they’d recommend it to, and if the product has changed something in their life.

When a Seller does has a big ticket item up for review, they pretty selective about who they want to review it. They want a great, well-written 5-star review, so they are likely looking at the recent reviews on their competitors’ products that are 5-star and well-written (as explained in this how-to for Sellers). This helps boost their chances of getting the same.

Yes with BzzAgent you do get points you can use on MyPoints.com to use your points on getting free merchandise. I actually never spend my points and just let it expire since all I care about with BzzAgent is getting the free products to test.

For those products that do not show as “Verified Purchase” I try to take some pictures and add them to my review. This way it demonstrates that I actually do have the product. And of course I always write “I received this product free in return for my honest review.”

Furthermore, I hope you are truly loving our products and are happy with your purchase. As a small seller on Amazon, we are largely dependent on product reviews from wonderful customers such as yourself.

But, it looks like providing an accurate email address was the correct thing to do. Most people don’t want to comment on your reviews with their contact info. I guess they would probably get a lot of requests from random people.

These are the best Amazon review sites to choose from. As you will notice, there are many different sites to choose from and each one will have a different product selection to complement your shopping needs.

While receiving free and discounted products is fun, the most important part of the transaction is writing the honest review on Amazon. It is worth noting that all items that were provided free or at a discount need to have the following sentence included in the review per Amazon review guidelines: “This product was provided at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.” Taking the time to provide an honest review is important because companies want to hear what you have to say about their product, but more importantly, so do your fellow shoppers.

1. IF you do get an opportunity to become a Professional Reviewer (for ANYONE), SAVE COPIES OF ALL CORRESPONDENCE (BOTH TO AND FROM EVERYONE) in a DEDICATED FOLDER (DIRECTORY) such as one Directory for NewEgg, one for Amazon and so on and so forth. This will make finding a particular message MUCH easier AND FASTER.

3.      Request Amazon reviews via newsletter and social media. Chances are, the folks subscribed to your newsletter and your fans on Facebook already like you, so why not ask them for reviews? There’s a decent chance they’ve already bought a product from you, so they can provide legitimate, positive Amazon customer reviews. In our article about getting reviews on Yelp, we noted that Yelp discouraged directly soliciting reviews. Amazon, on the other hand, is much more lax.

To take advantage of the discounts, you apply for a specific product and the seller will email you the discount code if approved. Reviews are optional to reflect the changes in Amazon’s terms and conditions regarding customer feedback in exchange for discounted and free products.

I don’t think reviewer ranks plays a heavy role. Maybe some companies think top reviewers are better. But the fact that there are so few reviewers on Amazon with contact info leads me to believe that profiles that have recent activity and at least a handful of well-written reviews are good candidates for companies to reach out to.

I will always write honest reviews and if that means I one day find that I am unable to get products, because I’ve rated too many negatively, then that’s what will happen and I’ll move on. Until then, if I can get a discount solely for writing an honest review, I will do so. I feel absolutely no sense of duty to use kid gloves on any product I get a discount on, because the rules are very clear; the reviews I am writing are to be honest. That is the only thing I owe the company, is an *honest* review.

The types of products that you test can vary depending on what these companies think will be a good fit for you. If you have children, you’re a great candidate to test stuff for kids and if you’re a runner you may get to test the latest running shoes. Products like food and electronics can be tested by just about everyone.

With Survey Panels, you get paid to take surveys, do product testing, join paid focus groups, and joining online communities. Some surveys you’ll qualify for and some you’ll not because it depends on what demographic the company is looking for.

A lot of times it could be simple mix-ups or an employee making a mistake. I would contact them and find out whats going on before taking any more surveys. You dont want to be wasting your time for nothing.

I am sorry I above written a long comment. I just would never want anyone to feel like I was made feel tonight just for asking a few polite questions as well as thanking in advance for answers. I also asked why you needed review votes. I have never asked anyone to do that as I didn’t know what it meant for one to want that. I just have enjoyed being able to get products I like or wanted to try at a lower price. I was then made fun of by what they call their group cabal has arrived and told I didn’t need to concern myself with that as I would be purged from Amazon. The vine were the only honest reviewers. Well pardon me if I think you are getting free items or discounted items for reviews. So why are they better than others. How do we know they are honest. I reviewed my products long before I ever heard of a review club. I do so thank you for posting this and not being condemning but you are offering help and tips to those who are just trying to enjoy a little life. God bless.

After you get the design done, you need to print it out and add it to your packaging. Most manufacturers that make their own packaging can do this for you. If you, on the other hand, have a separate packaging manufacturer, they will most certainly be able to do it for you.

I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

I have only ever reached out to 1 or 2 companies that I can remember. I get about 1 offer a day now, so I don’t really have that much time to request more. And it is always via the email address I have listed on my Amazon profile.

Still, it’s not likely that merchants are going to stop trying to game the system. More is at stake than ever before: The National Retail Federation expects online sales to jump as much as 10 percent to $117 billion this holiday season. 

I have notified Amazon and they are in the process of fixing everything. While I can’t say for sure, Product Elf seems to be the likely culprit as I had to link my Amazon account to it. This is a nightmare!

I would love a vine invitation. I pull no punches and I don’t sugarcoat anything. if I like it ill say everything about it that I like and if I don’t like something the same thing. I don’t like getting ahold of bead products not just on amazon but ebay samsclub and Walmart,com. I love to help people make informed decisions on products but you must remember that everyone has their own likes and dislikes plus I like free stuff. especially disc golf stuff and boaed games like mahjong.

I have had a couple companies send me an Amazon gift card that I used to purchase their product. Same benefits as above, with the exception of the first benefit: the reviewer can only use it for your product. They could use it for anything on Amazon since it is just like cash. That would be unethical, but possible.

What aspects of the Rxvoit headphones’ reviews felt funny to us? Well, first of all, we noticed that a lot of the positive reviews happened within a few days of each other. That indicates to us that people made a push for reviews to happen on a timeline.

Ask the right questions. To do this, you need to know the type of answers you want before you start asking for them. What is your target audience interested in? What are their biggest concerns when making a purchase? What are pain points in your industry? Aligning with these questions will help you get meaningful and relevant testimonials.

But IMO Vine is a minor gnat compared to the plauge of Coupon Queens/Kings that are flooding the listings with millions and millions of reviews where they bury their “Honest and Unbiased review” disclosure. It gets so frustrating trying to find a product that doesn’t have hundreds or even thousands of coupon reviews. Sometimes I will go to Bed, Bath & Beyond or Home Depot’s website and get the brand names of legitimate products and then specifically look up those brand names on Amazon. And a lot of the times it is cheaper at BBY or HD so Amazon loses a sale.

I’ve been a Prime member for years and am a Top 500 reviewer with a 94% helpful rating (somewhere around reviewer #320-325). I have not been invited the Vine program and have been offered less than a handful of free items over a number of years, despite having varied interests. This is a well written article, but getting free or heavily discounted stuff just isn’t that easy. I’ve had much better luck through BzzAgent and Smiley 360. Does anyone know of any other legitimate programs like those that would be worth signing up for?

“how do you get free products to review on amazon how to get free products to review on amazon”

the reviewers who get the product at a discount or for free have to say that in the review so just look at teh review and see if it is a discounted purchase if you don’t like them but no one is paid for a review. Amazon doesn’t allow anyone to pay for a review all they can do is either give a product for free or at a reduced price.

Thanks for your reply. It seems the UK are sooooooo far behind the USA, it’s crazy. I lived in America for 3 years, wish I would of known about all this back then instead of spending half my time couponing lol (which I have to admit, I loved). I will check out that link too. Thanks 🙂

As mentioned, Elite Deals Club needs serious work. I had great success the first few weeks, until that fateful day I received the ‘code not found’. Got one reply to the email I sent, a standard ‘make sure you’re doing everything right’ reply that didn’t even address this particular issue. Several months later, I am still unable to access anything. The site does a constant redirect to login. Soon as you login and try to view the deals it refreshes and takes you right back to login. If you check their Facebook page you will find hundreds of complaints about this issue, but no ones ever got it working again. I had recommended this site to several friends, who experienced the same. Interestingly enough, I unsubscribed from the daily emails several times, but still receive them occasionally.

HonestFew just launched a few weeks ago, and while I have only seen them offer one item for free, there have been some fantastic items on heavy discount. For instance, they recently offered whiskey stones for $1, a grill brush for $1.25 and a set of three nonstick baking mats for $2.95. The baking mats, in particular, were a great deal as these retail for close to $50!

You will find yourself leaning towards buying from Amazon more often than other sites if they have an item available, just because the shipping is free, and you get it it two days…I sure do! Wouldn’t work at all if prices weren’t competitive, though.

Amazon sent me a letter and survey to apply to Vine. They replied that I was not chosen but could be in the future. I had under 100 reviews, and about 55,000 rank.Over 100 up votes I think at that time.

I would also add as review source the professional reviewers communities. You can find them on giveaway websites or on facebook groups. I use their service and some of them write really good reviews, detailed and documented with photos or video.

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?

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.

Thank you for a positive article on sites for reviewing. I am a reviewer, fairly new. I am an Amazon prime member. I noticed you made a remark somewhere in all the responses above about Amazon community board for help. Please don’t refer people there. I will explain this in detail :

You can test cameras and wireless speakers for deeply discounted prices. It’s even possible to get free cell phone cases too. Products are available from the many different product categories listed on Amazon.

crowdtap is great i won almost 100 bucks in gift cards total over 2 months, the person above what they mean is when it comes to food stuff, they send a whole box of goodies like hidden valley ranch had one through them and you got a huge bottle of ranch, dipping bowls, packets, coupons. stuff like that.

This is a great article and as a person that does test sample products from amazon sellers I can say that I absolutely hate the fake reviews, it ruins the whole process. I take pride in my honest opinion and review of the products I test , I also update my review if something were to go wrong along the way with the item as well. Fake reviews just make it hard on those of us who are genuine and want to help the consumer get an idea of what they can expect from the product they’re looking at . I am one of the people that rely on word of mouth and honest reviews while shopping or looking at a business, it’s often what helps me decide .

This has been really helpful to me. I review on Amazon too but not a Vine member. I have always wondered about some of the things that you have shared here. Thanks. I sure hope I get to be a Vine member eventually.

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 products you review can dictate what companies contact you. If you only review headphones, you will likely get more requests to review headphones.

Does that unfairly skew star ratings however? Probably, and maybe there’s an opportunity there for something like an extension to provide a weighted score by scanning for discount review disclaimers. I think there is real value for everyone in these types of reviews when they’re done right so as to minimize influencing the reviewer as much as possible, although it may be more qualitative than quantitative.

I also do surveys and product testing. I did want to mention that my children do surveys with Kidzeyes and Teenseyes. My youngest has been doing this for about 2 years and he has made over $150, plus products to test. They have monthly drawings and he has won twice.

I’ve been a Prime member for years and am a Top 500 reviewer with a 94% helpful rating (somewhere around reviewer #320-325).

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.

This is among my favorites. There are tons of products to choose from and my observation is that this Giveaway Service often features products that are in the range of $60 or even higher (retail value).

I used to review products which I sometimes received for free, and my wife has been on a kick lately with these websites which specialize in selling deeply discounted products in exchange for a promise to review it.

What wardrobe is complete without a horse head mask? With Halloween coming up, who knows, this might be the perfect gift for any Bojack Horseman fans you might know. Or, just as easily, get this bad boy for yourself and gleefully scare friends and loved ones alike. Interestingly enough, the top rated comment for this product comes from none other than George Takei. Still, we thought these ones were a tad more worthy of a mention.

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.

Totally agree!! Not sure if it’s Amazon or the seller though with this one. When they aggregate the reviews it really adds to the time it takes to get a real feel for the relationship between reaction and specific product. Love this response
