I read some places that you need to be ranked so high to be considered, but I’ve never bothered to verify that, because it won’t affect how I write reviews. I’d love to be a Vine member, but only if an invitation were extended with how I write reviews naturally. That seems in contrast to some Vine reviews I read, which come across as an attempt to market the product.
I turned to two sites, Fakespot and ReviewMeta, which use publicly available review metadata and algorithms to try to suss out which reviews are “unreliable” or “unnatural.” The Samcable listing with 673 total reviews got a grade of F from Fakespot, with it declaring that 100 percent of the reviews were “low-quality.” After discarding what its algorithm determined were untrustworthy reviews, it adjusted that 4.6 average rating down to a 0.0 rating. ReviewMeta wasn’t much kinder. The highly rated Samcables went from an average review score of 4.6 to 1.1 using ReviewMeta’s criteria, deeming only 81 reviews out of the 673 not unnatural in some way.
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.
Update: Amazon Review Sites can no longer require you to leave a review, but they are strongly encouraged. By having a strong Amazon Profile, you’re more likely to have sellers approve you for a discounted product.
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.

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.
As it turned out, I LOVED the book and in my opinion it held a great deal of crossover appeal and whether or not you liked sci-fi, you should read book. So, in my review title, that was generally what I typed. I kept it short of course, but got the point across. And in the body, before going into specifics, I reiterated a bit about me as a reader, the type of book I normally enjoy to read (including a few examples of recent favorites) and gave the book a comparison and a description of what I’d compare it to that wasn’t considered sci-fi.
Tomoson – Connects you with companies that want their products reviewed in multiple places (Amazon, personal blogs, etc). You apply and if you’re accepted, you get the product free shipped through Amazon.
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.
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.
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).
As someone who consults with a lot of business owners I know how difficult it is to get a business up and running. Everything out there has already been invented. If you create a BETTER product of something out there then how is anyone supposed to find it on Amazon without any sales history?
I know this list can be overwhelming, but you can start from the beginning and work your way down. The more panels you join the more chances at getting products to test, plus you can make money too with these panels.
So what are you, the average Amazon shopper, to do? You can avail yourself of sites like Fakespot and ReviewMeta. Both readily admit that their algorithms aren’t perfect, but they do help spotlight products with “too good to be true” reviews attached to them. You can read reviews yourself, and check for things like a ton of unverified five-star reviews — in my experience, a sure sign that something fishy is going on with a product’s review score. And you can click through and check out a reviewer’s history. If a reviewer only has a few reviews, or has hidden their review history, take their feedback with a grain of salt.
Have you ever gone to a play and gave a standing ovation at the end? You have, right? And chances are you didn’t start the standing O. It’s unlikely you were even the third or fourth to stand. Chances are you stood up and clapped like a seal only when it was clear that an ovation trend had started. This is the power of social proof.
In case people are not aware as of October 2016 it is no longer allowed that free or discounted products are reviewed on Amazon. Plenty of people still lie and do it but it is a violation of the TOS and those that do it dismiss the FTC disclosure regulations as well.

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.
