One other thing to look out for is reviews for the wrong product. A terrible thing that Amazon has done is allows sellers to list multiple unrelated products under one listing so you don’t even know what you are reading a review for. This function was supposed to be used to allow listing of variations of the exact same product like color, size, etc…, but now is being widely abused to list totally different for the sake of reviews and price-based search results. For example, someone might sell a camera flash and a tripod and full studio kit all under one listing. When you read the reviews, you see a bunch of people raving about how great the product was and you assume it is for the flash you are looking at, but they are all really for the tripod and the one flash review was bad. I have reported this and Amazon simply does not care.
This is not at all how Amazon reviews work as of 10/2016 according to GiveAwayService.com I was very disappointed to read this after 2 hours of researching and beginning the process. See article below: https://www.giveawayservice.com/blog/update-on-amazon-customer-reviews
If you are looking for free travel and outdoor gear to review, this is the program for you! Their product offering is limited, but looks like they may be a new and growing company. Available for reviewers in USA.
Another problem with Amazon’s review system is that they often link together similar yet different products, so that multiple versions of a product show all the same reviews. For instance, blu-ray and DVD editions of a movie are often linked together, so you’ll see reviews for the blu-ray and reviews for the DVD lumped together in the same list. There was once a computer model that had different versions with notable differences (one with an Intel processor, and one with an AMD processor, for instance), and reviews for both models were lumped together in the same list. People were commenting on the reviews saying “This PC doesn’t have an AMD processor, it has an Intel processor, you reviewed the wrong product!” – When in fact it was Amazon’s review grouping, rather than the reviewer’s mistake.
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!
At the Echo’s launch, Alexa’s native capabilities included reading off weather forecasts, setting timers and alarms, and managing your to-do list and shopping list (and, of course, crossing items off of that shopping list by making purchases on Amazon whenever you ask her to). One trick that I use almost every morning while I’m brushing my teeth is to ask her for the news. In response, she’ll offer a curated list of the day’s headlines and news blurbs from popular sources such as NPR, CNN, BBC News and Fox Sports Radio. You pick which sources you want to hear from and which categories you want to hear about in the Alexa app.
I got an invite a while back when it was new, but didn’t know that I could get free stuff to review. Any ideas on how to re-activate said invite? I don’t seem to have the email, although I could dig deeper.
You won’t find a selection of products by going to their site, but rather a landing page that’s only used for registering a new account. They are a bit more strict in their process for giving out discounts.
Also, each Amazon review site can limit how many discounts you can redeem each month. This ensures other customers can also find great deals and helps verify you are taking the time required to accurately test a product.
I do my best to only request items that I would buy, and hold items to a standard that corresponds to its price. On top of that I’m a horribly picky person and prone to buyer’s remorse. However I’m still not sure I’m giving an item a fair shake. The best I can do, really, is to give far more extensive and thorough reviews than I would for some random item I’ve bought.
Once your Amazon Profile has been updated and you are ready to start getting free products to review, be sure to check out my growing list of Amazon Review Sites for Free Products. Signing up for even just some of these will ensure you are busy with more review request emails than you ever though possible.
The product range is impressive and registration is easy. But unlike some other review sites, this one does not indicate upfront the kind of discounts you are entitled to. It will be mailed to you upon successful request approval.
As the name implies, the focus is on Toilet Tree products. At the point of writing, they claim that their membership number is adequate and not looking out for more. But they use to recruit new members on weekly basis. So just fill out the form and they will get in touch if they see you as a good addition to their pool of members.
As someone who consults with a lot of business owners I know how difficult it is to get a business up and running. Everything out there has already been invented. If you create a BETTER product of something out there then how is anyone supposed to find it on Amazon without any sales history?
Do you know if the email that you put on your public profile needs to match the Amazon-registered email? I would really love to put an email to be contacted on but would like to use a disposable one for when it eventually gets picked up by spam bots.
