So you’re saying that it is human nature is to be jealous of people who “get things for free” and vindictive enough to write articles badmouthing them? But at the same time, people who “get things for free” are free from biases and the incentives to write good reviews so you keep getting “things for free?” Okay.
I myself don’t trust any of the” honest reviews” even if they are doing a honest review. Because there are far more fake “honest” reviews out there for me to look at and be tricked by them. I don’t know if those reviews are being honest in the first place. It’s like I have a lot of presents boxes. Inside *some* of them have actual gifts but *most* of the boxes contain bombs. I’m not risking my life for those presents (honest reviews), therefore I’m not going to get those presents. I’m going to get one that I know has a present inside (actual verified, paid full price reviews) because then I’m sure the results are not *as* skewed.
After registering for an account, you will begin receiving emails letting you know if there are new products available for review. If there is a product that you would like to review, you will need to grab a coupon code, purchase the item from Amazon at a super discounted rate and then post your review to Amazon within two weeks of receiving the product. Once your review is posted to Amazon, you also need to submit the review link to HonestFew. Those who do not review the items they are sent are removed from the program.
I agree with the comment above. This corrupt alliance between a buy and seller of a product, where a seller is bribing a buyer to give them a positive review has completely ruined product reviews at Amazon. 99 out of 100 people who take the bribe are going to give the product a positive review because they want the next seller who is going to bribe them to see that they will get the same positively biased review. I just finished looking at a product that I know is a piece of garbage. There were dozens of reviews from people who got it free or discounted through this system and every one of them was either 4 or 5 stars and a glowing review. But ever single person who wasn’t involved in that kind of shady deal gave it 1 or 2 stars and said it was complete junk. I know the product. It is a total ripoff and more like a scam than a product. Yet review after review from those who claimed they were giving an “honest” review said it was the best thing since sliced raisin bread. Yeah right! So this piece of junk had a 4+ star rating because of all the fake “honest” reviewers who cooked the numbers and fooled who knows how many people into getting ripped off by that scam. This is a dishonest form of promotion. No honest company would ever engage in such an unethical arrangement.
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!
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!
CR helped to mobilize support in Congress to create the CFPB, an independent agency responsible for overseeing the financial industry with powers to police abusive practices and to enact new consumer protections.
Getting something for free colors your perspective. If you pay for something at full price you are much more emotionally involved and thus more able to review it appropriately for another who’ll be paying full price. If you still think it’s bad – even free – I imagine many people might feel like they shouldn’t bad mouth the person giving them something for nothing – which may also influence the review.
I’ve just noticed something strange on amazon uk’s list of top reviewers. No 32 has never actually reviewed anything. I know the sorting on these things is supposed to be arcane but this is taking it a bit far.
Some Amazon reviews provide useful information to help you decide whether to buy a particular product or not. Other reviews are useless, like the ones where people give something a one star just because it arrived late. But there’s another type of review that’s neither useful nor useless, but what they lack in helpfulness, they make up for in pure hilarity. Take a look at these funny Amazon reviews to see what we mean. Compiled by Bored Panda, this creative list of customer feedback won’t help you to buy anything, but it’ll certainly help to put a smile on your face.
1) Terrible DRM. You can only install the game 5 times. This isn’t a problem unless you share the games, have multiple computers, or upgrade your computer frequently. There is evidently a way to “retrieve” installs, however, I have not used it and cannot give first hand experience. I have heard that the retrieval system does not work particularly well for Mac computers.
Influenster: Influenster is looking for social media influencers to spread the word about products that range anywhere from single cup coffee makers to the newest cosmetics. You can get one item to review or a box of products to review.
I assure you that this will not be your last request from Sellers. And that this is NOT how most requests work. You choose whether you want to continue to work with this Seller. I recommend educating them to help out our community.
Be constructive with your review: each negative mark should have a recommendation of how to improve it. No one likes a reviewer that just hammers away at a book/product without suggestions to improve it.
I want to really get involved in this testing products n samples I believe it would be a interesting hobby of n e one can give me websites n direction to get the ball rolling I would appreciate it n my e mail is (removed by editor)
The reason for product testing is that Top Name Brands would like to know what consumers think about newest products they’re developing to be sent to stores, but before they do that they need your opinions. This way, it’ll save them time and money if the product doesn’t do well and need changes.
