I have been a NewEgg Eggxpert for about 3 to 4 years and have posted QUITE A FEW BAD REVIEWS about both Products AND Services over the years. I have NEVER GOTTEN “DINGED” by ANY Company and/or Service for a “BAD” Review. As a matter of fact I did a BAD Review on a Western Digital Portable HD once and I got a Reply Message (ON the NewEgg Review Site itself – surprised the heck out of me) praising my honesty and truthfulness. The person who replied even said that he wished MORE REVIEWERS were as honest in their reviews as I was. He also stated that ALL the problems/issues that I had listed with the product itself would be tested and/or fixed or modified ASAP.
Like a few other review sites mentioned here, VIP Power Club will notify you when deals are available instead of crawling through their database and applying for products. Most offers are between 90% and 100% off and you can expect to pay no more than $5 for most items.
I don’t buy items with Vine reviews. People may say they are being unbiased but it’s just not true. You are going to be more reasonable in your review for a product you paid hard earned money for. I was looking for a shower head recently and had a difficult time weighing the good ones against the bad because so many of them had those freebie reviews. I ended up not buying the shower head from Amazon altogether.
Reviews may get taken down if others label them inaccurate or if they don’t comply with Google’s review policies. You can’t contact someone who left an inappropriate review, but you can request that Google remove it.
Most of the offers ask me if I am interested in the item first and then give me the info to get them. A few, however, just send out a lists of codes with a first come, first served approach. I can’t check my email non-stop, so I have missed out on all of those.
I have no idea if this helped anyone, but it would have helped me. I think in most of my reviews I have approached them as such, and will likely continue to do so. To me the key to any review is to stand out as offering a critique or kudo, that isn’t what has already been said. Otherwise, just click a star rating and move on.
Paid Reviews – We do not permit reviews or votes on the helpfulness of reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any kind, including payment (whether in the form of money or gift certificates), bonus content, entry to a contest or sweepstakes, discounts on future purchases, extra product, or other gifts. The sole exception to this rule is when a free or discounted copy of a physical product is provided to a customer up front. Source (Dec 16, 2016): Amazon Customer Review Creation Guidelines
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.
Among all the different types of marketing inserts, like thank you cards, discounts, and cross-sells, we are interested in asking for a product review. It shouldn’t be the only thing you care about, but it should be your main goal for the purposes of this article. And since Amazon doesn’t forbid this type of messaging, you should take advantage of it.
The price went up after the sale ended I guess, and a lot of others had left similar five star reviews in the interum. Really the Anker is a good headphone even for $25, was lucky myself to have caught it at $20.
I like Amazon’s 14 leadership principles (LP) and the company’s culture formed based on LPs. Many companies have culture out there but not every company and employee can truly internalize it. At Amazon, I met many good performers who truly internalized the LPs and apply them in their daily work. For example, teams are often “customers” to each other internally, and you can see that LPs such as customer obsession, think big etc. are impacting every decision making. Such practices not only benefit one’s customers but benefit their own work as well.
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.
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.
Maybe a few paragraphs about how the rise of online shopping has affected academia, or whatever, but you’d probably rather just find out what PhD student Alastair Gibbons has been doing with a vibrator, so here:
1. Find the top reviewers. First we’ll scour the Amazon list of Top Reviewers. You’ll see the page is divided into Top Reviewer Rankings and Hall of Fame Reviewers. Hall of Fame holds the long-time legacy reviewers, while the Top Review Rankings shows the best Amazon contributors at the current moment. Hall of Fame shows the reviewers’ title badges and accolades, although you can get this same info mousing over names in the Top Reviewers section.
There are more popping up all the time, but there are a select few with great reputations that you can be sure will deliver what they promise. After testing a whole range of sites ourselves we have come up with a list of the most trusted product testing sites below.
Over 90% of Amazon buyers typically fail to leave feedback. In addition, customers with a negative experience are more motivated to leave feedback. What is your strategy for getting more feedback on Amazon?
Prepare for the worst. You’ll get bad reviews. Maybe even really terrible ones. Criticisms may be indelicate, undeserved, or even downright cruel, and there’s no internet police who will come around and slap those naughty complainers on the wrists. That means it’s up to you to handle the situation. We suggest that you…
No. We expect our members to write unbiased, honest and authentic reviews. All Hey, Bullseye reviews will be posted on the product’s Target.com detail page unedited, regardless of whether they are favorable or not, provided they follow Target’s Review Writing Guidelines.

Very good article. I enjoy using the Panny 25mm f1.7 (which first came out at US$99!) and 45-150, the Samyang (Rokinon) 12mm f2 (though I paid less than $240 on sale so I think your $600 might be for the t/2.2 geared video version). I would suggest including a fisheye (Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 ~$250) and ultra zoom (Panny 100-300mm).
You may have noticed that some of our reviews and rankings are slow to update. That could be because very little has changed in a particular product group. For example, stand mixers have not changed much in 20 years, so until something better than the Kitchen Aid comes along, you might not see an update to our review in 12 months – or until the new models arrive.
