Since I wrote my answer many things have changed. Over a year ago Amazon changed the reviewer rules. You no longer required to leave a review for a product you get for a reduced price. You can only leave about 4 reviews a month for things purchased at a reduced price. AMaxon rejects so many reviews especially bad reviews now. And because they can no longer require you to leave a review, the merchandise is no longer free and is not discounted as much. I was always a truthful reviewer. I told it like it was. But I stopped because it is no longer worth it.
I am in a program with Bestbuy. Bestbuy tech insider i think its called. I got invited back in February and I don’t know how. I typically do write some reviews on Bestbuy at times. I typically write a review if i like or hate the item enough to make my opinions known.
So how do you become one of Amazon’s most trusted reviewers? Amazon will reach out to you if they feel you are a good fit for the program but the company does offer some guidance on what it’s looking for in a Vine Voice.
This does’t mean your reviews have to be glowing, perfect epic novels expounding on the miracles this particular item did for you. They just have to be real and supportive. We’ll get into how to write review below.
I’ve been contacted by sellers offering free and discounted products for review….I always put a disclaimer at the end of each review and as I’ve seen many others accepting products to review I didn’t know it wasn’t allowed…is this correct?? I actually enjoy writing reviews…
After you’ve completed your product test, you’ll usually be asked to write a review, fill out a survey, or participate in a discussion about the product. important that you be honest when you do this, even if you have some criticism for the product. The company wants to improve their product if needed. The more in-depth you go with your reviews and answers will give them valuable feedback.
The Result? Online reviewers, journalists, bloggers, and podcasters meet product promoters, marketers, public relations, and publicity pros, to help each other find new products and review them online. Hopefully this now includes you, too!
Despite all this, it’s usually pretty simple to keep getting deals as long you leave decent, honest reviews. I haven’t had a problem with them yet. Just be sure to snag deals quickly before they run out.
Thanks, Lynn, for all of your wonderful tips and replies! If you have any experience with some or all of the review sites listed here, we sure could benefit from your feedback and tips. Each page has a comments section for that review site.
You can find many items as low as 10 cents. Sometimes, you can even buy something for a penny before shipping. While other review sites have a books category, Jump Send also seems to be one of the few that usually has books available at discounted prices and several free downloadable PDFs.
Got some word back on this from my UK reviewer contact. The gist of it is he would only ever recommend a site that he had used or someone he knows and trusts has used. Problem is that he, nor other reviewers he knows, are using one. They rely totally on Sellers reaching out to them via their Amazon profiles.
I use the “search” feature when reading reviews to look for my weight/size and see if people with a similar body type posted their experience. This is especially helpful when sizes don’t run true to size!
I’m Not A Amazon Vine Customer, But I Would Like To Be… I’ve Bought A Few Items From Amazon And Have Never Had A Bad Thing To Say As I Have Always Been Satisfied With Every Item That I Have Bought From Sellers. I Have Always Recieved My Item On Time, My Product Has Always Looked As Described And Has Never Been Damaged.. I Would Recommend Amazon To The Public… 100% From Me.
