Hi there. I love your website, thanks! Anyway just wanted to let you know that some of your links aren’t working properly. For instance when I click on #3 – Pinecone Research, I’m directed to a site called, ‘Product Report Card.com’. That’s not the first time that’s happened to me while using the links you provide on your site. I hope this information is helpful to you!
It’s worth noting that NetGalley provides free ebooks to reviewers, and a lot of Amazon reviewers use that, as do I. I read a lot, and I like to review books, and It’s great to get some books I wouldn’t have bought from NetGalley.
Thanks for the tips. I’ve actually been using personal information that’s close to mine so easy to remember but not really me. Real address though; haven’t figured out a convenient way around that one.

Social proof is some powerful stuff, and the more proof you have, the more potent it becomes. An item rated as 4.5 stars reviewed by 10 people won’t sell as well as an item rated as 4 stars reviewed by 300 people. More reviews look better, are more convincing, and boost your visibility when someone searches for your product on Amazon.
When it comes to getting paid for reviewing websites, it is important to put honestly ahead of everything else. After all, your reviews will play a big rule in many people’s decisions in buying a product or service.
“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.”
At the same time, one of our readers, Tracy, who had commented a while back about the site, joined the site and came back to share her experience. And her experience is basically aligned with my thoughts. See Tracy’s comment here.
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.
I updated the link and it should work now. But please be aware that Pinecone is looking for certain demographic at this time: Males- Hispanics, African African Americans ages 18+ and Females ages 18-24.
Please get K. Ellington to stop continually harassing me for the honest 1 star review I posted on Amazon. It’s an honest review, and for a product that even the Seller has removed from purchase because of its potentially toxic ingredients! Hopefully your entire business does not run on bullying, and it is just this one person.
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.
This review program is for more than just Amazon reviews. Sellers can request you post to “websites, social boards, blogs, so forth”. There is even mention of getting paid (only) in their FAQs. Available for reviewers in USA.
I’d recommend Dollar Review Club. Free. I’ve reviewed 4,5 deals there with little issues. Happen one time that the code went expired and their customer service feedbacked to me within several hours and I got my quota back to claim another product. Better than what I experienced in other review sites where my question kept no response and I could only find it through FAQ with anger. If you are reviewer I think you can give a try. (Also found that it’s also free for seller to upload products there now…? interesting)
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?
This brand-run super user program is for those of you interested in product testing lighting (rope lights, desk lights, LEDs, floodlights, flashlights/torches, curtain lights and more.) Available for product testers in USA, UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Canada, France, Spain, Japan.
Be sure to add a picture and a location to your profile. For some products, there may be a geographic limit to where they can send it. Some items can’t ship via air, and other items have a short shelf life and need to get there quick. And be professional about the image you choose. A half-naked selfie of you is not going to win over suppliers, unless you are looking to attract products for half-naked selfie-taking type people.
One downside here is that they tend to mix it up here! Sometimes you find fabulous deals that save you a lot but there are also lots of what I call cheap deals. I mean, 50% off is great but then it is not great saving when you apply them to those that cost little (like 5 bucks) in the first place.
One thing I do, is try to put myself in a reviewers shoes, and think back to myself and what mattered to me. Book reviews may not be quite the same as a product review, but an example I remember is when I discovered the book “Wool,” by Hugh Howey.

I agree with the comment above. This corrupt alliance between a buy and seller of a product, where a seller is bribing a buyer to give them a positive review has completely ruined product reviews at Amazon. 99 out of 100 people who take the bribe are going to give the product a positive review because they want the next seller who is going to bribe them to see that they will get the same positively biased review. I just finished looking at a product that I know is a piece of garbage. There were dozens of reviews from people who got it free or discounted through this system and every one of them was either 4 or 5 stars and a glowing review. But ever single person who wasn’t involved in that kind of shady deal gave it 1 or 2 stars and said it was complete junk. I know the product. It is a total ripoff and more like a scam than a product. Yet review after review from those who claimed they were giving an “honest” review said it was the best thing since sliced raisin bread. Yeah right! So this piece of junk had a 4+ star rating because of all the fake “honest” reviewers who cooked the numbers and fooled who knows how many people into getting ripped off by that scam. This is a dishonest form of promotion. No honest company would ever engage in such an unethical arrangement.

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