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.
As for your 80 product reviews…don’t sweat it! I have heard people getting asked after 3 reviews. It is sort of a crap shoot based on the products you have reviewed. Sellers look through competitor’s products for recent reviews and clicks on the reviewer’s names to see if their Profile has an email address. The products/categories you reviewed may not be searched for right now, or your reviews may be under dozens of other more recent reviews, or a multitude of reasons. Keep at it—and make sure your profile is complete with email address—I’m certain that you will start to get more Sellers contacting you directly.
Create your detailed request to review the product. Include the link to your Amazon profile, the product name or ASIN in your request, and what kind of review you will do (detailed, with pictures, seller feedback, etc).
Janet, Make sure there is nothing else in your cart, most codes will not work if there is. If it does not ‘apply’ and gives you an error message there are several things different options you can try.

An amen from the choir and great article Lauren! I agree that Amazon could do a better job at dropping the hammer on fake reviews and reducing overall bias within real reviews. I have written Amazon in the past regarding the bias that Vine and other similar programs introduce to reviews. I’d love to see Amazon tab those types of reviews separately so you could easily compare “sponsored reviews” from the rest (including having more transparency in the average rating score) rather than just tagging the review with the Vine program logo. It reinforces my negative opinion when reaction by sponsored reviewers is so defensive. I get that these folks have a passion for what they do, I just don’t appreciate having their reviews sprinkled alongside paying customer reviews inside the portal. I think Amazon should have adopted a similar approach to rewarding top reviewers as Yelp and YouTube have done in rewarding these people separately from their service through invitation to thank you events and in ways that do not introduce bias but rather reward their passion!
Oh I think I am rambling again…sorry, but I think finding this out explained where my down votes had come from and why!!! Its saddening really, I believe everyone has the right to accept products for free in return for a review if that is what they want to do so why certain feel the need to get more and be better than you is beyond me, why would it satisfy them to push that unhelpful button just to ensure their review remains the top rated???? It hasn’t happened again since but I haven’t reviewed the same products as them yet but I am aware of their tactic and will keep an eye on it. I don’t actually know what could be done other than down vote their reviews but I’m not like that and I won’t stoop to that level or get sucked into their petty wee game plus at the end of the day I can’t prove it was them. I have no idea what take Amazon would have on this either if it was happening all the time and started to become an issue?? I remember reading a post from someone who was on the Vine Programme and admitted that those reviewers have formed cliques, the gossip and backstabbing is awful among them and its all very cut throat!! Craaaazy, wouldn’t it be better if they just respected each other and do their reviews rather than get so competitive about it all.. I guess it boils down to some people having the nature of begrudging and do not like someone else getting on or doing better than them and when it comes to receiving free products greed and jealousy gets mixed into the pot also. I have ignored it so far Lynn and just keep my head down and carry on enjoying writing my reviews but yes, looks like we have attracted a little troll or two on our journey!! 🙂
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.
The Good Amazon’s voice-activated smart home speaker is undeniably futuristic, but it’s also practical and accessible. With a rapidly growing slate of features, integrations and use cases, it’s easy to get excited about the Echo’s potential.
