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.
They offer discounts for a variety of products, although, health and beauty tend to be the most common category. The offerings largely depend on their merchant partnerships so the deals are always changing.
I am very interested in the Amazon Vine program. I am currently a veteran member of Amazon Prime; as a proud Prime member, it is noteworthy to say that Amazon is my family’s go-to place to shop for most personal, household products, and gifts. And we are very grateful to have this outlet to obtain our needs. Be that as it may, as an Amazon Vine member, I will use it as an excellent opportunity to review the amazing multitudinous goods Amazon offers to shoppers like myself.
Give your customers a reason to review you. It may be something as simple as writing a personalized thank you note, but that gesture will go a long way in making your customers feel warm and fuzzy. Delush Polish does such a great job at going the extra mile that customers actually share the packaging on Instagram.
With testing products it all depends on what demographic the company is looking for and they’ll send you a survey to complete to see if you qualify. Don’t expect to get a whole lot of products to test every month but if you stick to completing surveys all the time then you’ll start noticing product testing surveys to pop up in your email box quite a bit.
Second, within those reviews, we saw a lot of the same wording, and even similarly staged user photos. It was as though someone said, “Hey, take a picture of a close-up of your hands holding the headphones over a countertop.” While we know that people do post pictures to accompany their reviews, it seemed too coincidental that they were all staged in the same way, all over a span of a few days.
My question is, on my profile should I have it set on “Hide all activity on your profile”? I didn’t want other people/reviewers looking at my reviews to purposely give it a” not helpful” mark. Will this prevent me from receiving offers from sellers? I didn’t see this covered. I appreciate your help.
Social proof is a hardwired, “herd mentality” setting in our human makeup. When others do something, we automatically and subconsciously determine that it is safe and even in our best interest to do the same.
When I first started completing surveys back in 2008, I believe I received my first product test survey within 1 to 2 months and I remember it was from SurveySpot to test coffee and I was paid $150! When I did this I was hooked! I started to sign up with as many Survey Panels I could find and I’m so glad I did!
I have not seen anything that indicates that it’s available in France. I’ve seen some in Canada say they were invited, but Amazon doesn’t appear to provide any information on which countries the program operates in.

Thanks for your feedback, JCrews. I don’t spend too much time writing Amazon reviews, but I mainly do so because of how I depend upon the reviews of other Amazon customers. I’ve made quite a few buying decisions based on reviews.
One Opinion Panel is a Top Rated Product Testing Company and I receive several products a month. They have exclusive high paying focus groups to join paying their members $100 or more! 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal and Visa Prepaid Cards
Start reviewing big ticket items you own that are in the categories you wish to be asked to review more items. Prove to Sellers that you can write a review that helps their sales. DO NOT inflate a rating to 5-stars in the hopes that it attracts big ticket items—this is counterproductive to what our community is here to do for the customer that relies on it to make a purchase.
Many people heard about the “6-pager” white paper practice. Often I need to write one-pager (high level of a program/project), two-pagers or six-pagers (the “white paper”), PRFAQs etc. They are very helpful for me to organize my thoughts and push me to develop thorough thinking, and to use data, voice of customers etc. to build a strong case. This is a very good practice to improve my personal capability, not just “something I have to do for my job”. Clear/concise/direct communication also works effective and widely acceptable here so that we can all be effective and focus.
Frosty, I think you may have misunderstood what Venushakti Velatura was conveying. VV was being paid to write fake reviews – it was her job. So, yes, in fact, “those companies” WERE telling VV to compose positive and (VV states) negative reviews. She didn’t get free or discounted products, she (I assume VV is female if that is her real picture) didn’t get products AT ALL. She put food on the table by writing fiction, either to boost sales or undermine competitors, depending, apparently, on her assignment.
So why does Amazon claim it’s not lawful to post fake reviews in the first place? According to the complaint, the reviewers are liable for breach of contract since, as Amazon customers, they are bound by the company’s terms of service. Amazon also claims the fake reviews are unfair and deceptive under Washington law, and amount to unlawful interference with third-party contracts.
Joining Betabound gives you access to products (mobile phones, home theater, wearables, etc.) before they go to market so that you can test them and give feedback about your experience. Available worldwide (though USA is likely more popular to get products.)
What wardrobe is complete without a horse head mask? With Halloween coming up, who knows, this might be the perfect gift for any Bojack Horseman fans you might know. Or, just as easily, get this bad boy for yourself and gleefully scare friends and loved ones alike. Interestingly enough, the top rated comment for this product comes from none other than George Takei. Still, we thought these ones were a tad more worthy of a mention.
The Chinese crap on Amazon is out of control. Not only the non-UL listed electronics, but the sweat-shop clothing that no ethical store would ever import (easily recognized by the measurements being in centimeters and the fractured explanations of how size XXL equals an American/European size S).
If it’s a good seller with great customer service would it be wrong to send them a review and star rating and ask if they want it posted or if they just want to learn from my experience with their product. Does that go against the purpose and spirit of reviewing?
I thought I’d share one more piece of advice that I have regarding becoming a reviewer. It makes sense to me that companies prefer reviews that are more or less grammatically correct and don’t contain errors. I’m a writer, and I’m still prone to mistakes just like anyone else. However, I discovered and now use an extension called Grammarly, which you download and works with your browser (I use it with Chrome, and I presume it works with others, but maybe it doesn’t).
Thank you for letting me know about Fiverr…I went and had a look and I cannot believe that people are selling this service and that it actually seems to very popular, wow!! My eyes really have been opened to this reviewing game, there really is another whole new world on Amazon with this carry on I never knew existed. Funny I was looking through the reviews on a product I had been sent after I read your reply and every one of the 48 reviews were down voted apart from the 3 top rated ones…such shady business. The article you are thinking of writing would be excellent in exposing this…I do agree that this needs to be exposed and I do think Amazon need to be taking it seriously and help combat it! Good luck with it Tristan, I look forward to reading it….
Instead of sending the product, you can ask the reviewer if they will accept an Amazon. Gift card via email for the purchase price. That way they are a verified buyer. Don’t do this in bulk unless you are Richie Rich.
If so, then you should compose your own e-mail invite and send them to everyone. Include a clear CTA, explain in short how they are helping others to make a choice (very important) and do not include a incentive (I think this is even considered breaking the law in the US).
— “every free thing I have asked to review has charged me on amazon when I put in the code” Ok, that isn’t supposed to happen. I have only had less than 10 “free” coupons end up not being free (see Facebook post here for help with this).
