Some of the sites that sell products like this are definitely shady, but others work rather well because they give buyers protection from seller retaliation. If the product is garbage it’s not likely that even a 90%+ discount is going to change 1-2 star into 4-5 stars, there’s zero benefit to the reviewers in doing that. You definitely are less inclined to get overly frustrated by flaws in a $5 product vs the same one at $50, but it’s unfair to say that a biased review is fake or dishonest — as long as the circumstances of that review have been made clear.
Once you get the approval to test, the company will ask for your address to send you the product to test for a week or two. Then, they’ll follow up with you with an email asking questions about the product you’ve tested. When you’re done, you get paid! WOO HOO!
Amazon has got to big, they cannot handle their review system, there is an element of “corrupt” sellers and Amazon is not willing to do anything. This is a real shame for the real honest sellers of which there are plenty. I keep writing my opinion on this where ever I get the chance. Maybe there should be a reviewing site where you can review online stores AND reviewers,,
I use to get products to test from them quite a bit when my daughters were babies and toddlers, but not so much anymore since my daughters are older. This name brand company is prefect for mothers with young children. 💰 Pays by Cash
2) Imitated gameplay. Spores gameplay offers nothing new. The 5 stages to the game all imitate other types of games. (see other reviews for more depth) This makes the gameplay seem cheap, however, the gameplay is not what sells the game. If you buy spore, buy it for the creature creator which is very well done and offers a very intuitive designer that offers a large number of bits and pieces for your creatures. There is also a vehicle and building creator that is not as interesting to me, but offers that customization that makes the later stages of the game unique.
6. Say thank you! One of my all time favorite books, How to Win Friends and Influence People (I swear, I’m not a self-help junkie, this is an eccentricity in my library), notes that all people crave sincere appreciation. Be sure to follow-up and thank the top Amazon reviewers for their thoughtful review – with sincerity of course!
I also have one small favor to ask you, if everything has gone smoothly, I’d really appreciate it if you could take just a few seconds to leave feedback on your buying experience with us. It really affects our ability to sell and be successful and would be greatly appreciated.
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.
I had already sent the reply I copied here, and I heard back from them asking me to proceed and providing the discount code. However, the code drops the cost to $2.99. Is that normal? Should I proceed? Honestly, I like the look of the product and it’s something I wouldn’t mind having.
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.
As for the typos and grammar, keep in mind that the vast majority of Sellers I have dealt with do not call English their first language. Many of these emails originate from overseas, and many are form letters to start. I normally don’t judge the quality of the offer based on that.
If you do decide to sign up for more than just one or two sites, then I’d suggest you register a new email address just Amazon review sites. That way you can keep everything in one place and make it easier and faster for you to check for new opportunities, instead of having to weed through tons of other personal emails to find emails from review sites.
These discount codes will often be for at least 50% off. As Amazon still wants to maintain a high level of credibility for the customer reviews, sites don’t offer as many free products as they did in the past.
CR tests showed two-thirds of seat belts failed basic safety and durability tests, leading CR to call for better belts and for federal standards that incorporated crash testing. The government later mandated them.
