Thanks for your reply. It seems the UK are sooooooo far behind the USA, it’s crazy. I lived in America for 3 years, wish I would of known about all this back then instead of spending half my time couponing lol (which I have to admit, I loved). I will check out that link too. Thanks 🙂
Hi Tristan, thank you for this article, it’s great read. For some time now I was thinking how to start and from where, finally last night I updated my Amazon account, and I also signed up to some of Web sites I found on your list. Your article really opened my eyes, and helped me understand how ‘this world’ works.
I wish Amazon had an option to turn off all “paid reviews”, which usually have the following disclaimer at the very bottom of a 10-paragraph review that you’ll never read to the end: “I was provided a discount for my fair and unbiased review of this product.” Fair and unbiased? Please. Claiming to provide an unbiased review that then completely fails to notice serious product flaws is blatantly dishonest. I especially hate the paid reviews that start with, “I bought this for my relative/friend/boss” etc., which misleads people, right off the bat, into believing the reviewer paid full price for the product.
For a decade, CR conducted independent testing and research to highlight the dangers of cigarettes. The Surgeon General’s Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health used CR’s work to draft its landmark report.
ProducttestingUSA is a COMPLETE JOKE. They will NEVER send you ANYTHING to test. I seen the one product was looking for 3 people to test it out It was for nail polish. ONLY ONE other person had signed up to test it, and it was closng in 17 minutes. I figured I would be the second person to sign up. The nail Polish closed and NEITHER of our names were on the \”Testers List\” SO WHERE DID the \”Testers\” come from? Another thing I noticed is when they email you the \”Lucky Testers\” Names. One week it might say: Cindy Brice was this weeks lucky tester. Next week it might say: Cynthia Rice is our lucky winner. The names are ALWAYS VERY Similar. Are they using employees names? Or making up names? I laughed when it said the one winner was:Ockijos Ramerizest. WHAT kind of name is that? Theres another name I see A LOT of and I can ONLY remember the FIRST name. They will do it: Ozzie, Ozzie and Ozzey. The last name is ALWAYS the same though. Another site to \”Look out\” for and DONT EVER USE is called: Point Club. You earn points for taking surveys and at times they send you things to \”test\” and take surveys on the product you JUST tested. This site is nothing but SCAMMERS. I took a survey for 7000 points the one day. I COMPLETED the survey and once I got to the end, the survey gave me a message: Thank you for completing our survey. You will be redirected back to your dashboard in a few moments to be issued your 7000 points. A few seconds later, I am taken back to the dashboard, BUT the cartoon guy who greets you on the dashboard said: You did NOT qualify for that survey, here is 12 points for trying. I contacted their Customer Service. I SAVE page views once I complete surveys JUST IN CASE something like this would happen. I told Customer Service: Here is the screen shot which says you HAVE COMPLETED and will be given 7000 points on your dashboard. They told me NO, it was a survey glitch, I ONLY get 12 points NOT 7000. Also, you need 25000 points to cash out for 25.00. I had 17560 points the one day. The next day I logged in, I had 11250 points. gain, they told me it was a system glitch on their part, I now have the correct amount of points. IF you DO MANAGED to get the 25000 points needed for the 25.00 paypal deposit, it takes 30 days for them to put the 25.00 into your paypal, ND they charge a 3% fee for transfer. TOTAL SCAMMERS.
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. It’s 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.
While some sites are better than others, I still look at all of them on a daily basis every morning. Have any other questions or comments? Leave them below. Thanks again for reading and happy frugaling!
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.
I do think there is a notable difference between ‘free’ and ‘discounted’, paying even a couple dollars for something seems to have some notable psychological effect. So I’m not a fan of Vine, which does special shipments of things a reviewer might not have any interest in at zero cost. However, *some* of these discount-in-exchange-for-a-review sites my wife has been using actually have some merit.
Today we are going to talk about third-party review sites that basically exist for one reason only–to connect Amazon sellers looking to get reviews on their product listings with Amazon shoppers who would like to get free products.
There are more popping up all the time, but there are a select few with great reputations that you can be sure will deliver what they promise. After testing a whole range of sites ourselves we have come up with a list of the most trusted product testing sites below.
Avoid reviewing group promotional items under the group affiliate link they’re using. If you review a promo under a group affiliate link, it’s too easy to get tangled into a seller relationship block or wipe.
The types of products that you test can vary depending on what these companies think will be a good fit for you. If you have children, you’re a great candidate to test stuff for kids and if you’re a runner you may get to test the latest running shoes. Products like food and electronics can be tested by just about everyone.
