Most review sites allow the sellers to check out the viewers and approve or disapprove them. I have made a database of the reviewers and make sure I do not send two coupons for the same product to the same person. Most sellers on Amazon are struggling and thefts like this can bring us down completely. I have nothing personal against AmzRC and its owner Andy, but unfortunately he is facilitating this theft and is not willing to rectify it. I just want to warn other sellers before they get burned like me. Andy does not care. Amazon does not care. It is your responsibility to care about yourself.

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.
“We do not incentivize positive star ratings, attempt to influence the content of reviews, or even require a review to be written,” explains Chee Chew, VP, Customer Experience at Amazon in an announcement about how Vine controls for bias. “And we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product,” he adds.
I wondered, but it didn’t matter, and doesn’t now. This whole list of comments is frustrating – people are acting like this Mud site has anything to do with Amazon, like they’re applying for Vine here on some random site. As if Amazon would see it here.
Anyway, I am interested in your thoughts about participating this as a reviewer, and your thoughts on the implications on this all the way around – especially the implications impacting the reviewer that chooses to accept this invitation and aggressively pursue seller contacts.
Better Discounts isn’t exclusive to Amazon products, but, you can be emailed promotional codes for Amazon when they become available. This can also be a good way to find discounts to other online retailers as well since not every good online deal is always found at Amazon.
Hi Michael,That seems very strange, since Amazon does not require users to purchase an item on Amazon before reviewing it. Unfortunately, sometimes it comes to being persistent. Most of your requests for reviews will be rejected, but some of them will not be. Those few and far between reviews are the ones you are shooting for!
Oh, and to those who are afraid of Amazon having a problem with these free for review sites…..they only take issue with it if you DO NOT disclose that you received the item for free or at a discount. As long as you clearly disclose that in every review you should be fine. I add this statement: “I received this item at a discount in exchange for my honest & unbiased review” at the end of every review and i’ve never had a problem. Once I forgot to add it & they emailed me that my review could not be posted. I corrected the review & then they posted it. Just be sure to actually test out the item and leave a real & honest review. If it looks suspect to them and they think it is a fake/dishonest review (if they see you cut & paste the same content in all your reviews or if you are posting the reviews before the item has even been delivered, that sort of thing) then of course you may get banned.
These companies below are my personal favorites I use to get free products at home to test, and get paid by either PayPal, Cash, Gift Cards, or Merchandise. Sign up now before these panels don’t accept new members! If you’re the main shopper in your household you should do really well. With the holidays here, now is a great time to join these programs and make extra money.
I recently participated with Netgalley – they provide a service to authors and publishers to provide industry professionals, bloggers and reviewers with an advance copy of a book with the expectation that it is publicly reviewed. I received a copy of a book within a genre I’ve read for over 30 years – it was terrible. Terrible in a way that was very obvious and less subjective – I could barely finish it but I did to provide my review. I struggled with whether or not I should review it – I had received something for free and felt bad – also, you have to post the review to the publisher which can potentially affect your ability to receive more titles from them. In the end I reviewed it honestly and noticed that there was a flurry of positive reviews from people using this same service. Yes it’s possible they liked it – but seriously the book was that awful that I doubt it merited 5 star reviews. I won’t review another item this way and learned that you just can’t trust reviews given in exchange for something because people feel beholden to the giver or actually are beholden to them should they want to continue to get free things.
