The article has some good points but focuses a lot on fake reviews. More problematic in my opinion are the worthless reviews from real people who never actually used the product they got for free (or, nowadays, for a few pennies.) Or the Vine reviewer who eBays the products without opening the package – you can tell.
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.

Your survey will look like your answers are untruthful and cannot be used which will lead you to getting removed from program and money you earned is forfeited.
You seem like a smart person, so I think you could understand the algorithm, but it would take a lot of time like it would for anyone else and understanding it wouldn’t give you the ability to change it or have any value worth the time it would take you to research it.

I was a member of Walmart’s Spark Reviewer program, which they have just announced (via an email to the Spark Reviewers) that they are ending. I really enjoyed getting the free products (f.ex., things as inexpensive as a new variety of Triscuits or as fancy as a new convertible laptop onto which I was instructed to download Windows 10 the day it was released), and would love to continue doing something similar for another website’s program (such as Amazon Vine). Are there other programs similar to Amazon Vine or Walmart Spark Reviewer out there, and if so, would experience as a Walmart Spark Reviewer be at all helpful in getting an invitation to participate?

If a reviewer has completed at least one review in two years, they become a ‘Recognized Reviewer’. ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ status is awarded to those who belong to the top 10th percentile in terms of the number of completed reviews for a specific journal in years.

Anyone noticing that is only noticing what they want to believe. There are unlimited “negative or even critical” Vine review. Unlimited! It’s a myth that those who get Vine products are less likely or incapable of writing critical reviews. Believers always refer to some past research project to verify that belief, too. Go read Vine reviews, and stop perpetuating an untruth. Besides those who believe that myth, most other complaints about Vine reviews are by those who are jealous they don’t get free items to review. If they got an invitation to join Vine, you better believe they would change their way of thinking instantly. They would tell themselves it’s not a totally dishonest program, and they would make it a more honest program by becoming a member.
