I live in Canada, read many reviews and have written a few for different products. If I had been aware of the Vine program (and was eligible) I would have written reviews for all the items I own that are available on Amazon.
I just wanted to ask you a question about the l oreal product testing. Do you need to pay taxes on the gifts or products they send you? I recently moved to the US and I have no idea how the system works.
AMZBlitz is a new Amazon product testing program offering very deep discounts on Amazon products that you can test and keep. It’s so new that details of the program are very limited. Available for shoppers in USA.
Amazon product review software places your feedback and product review requests on auto-pilot with professionally written messages, delivered to the right customers, at the right time for the right products.
I know this list can be overwhelming, but you can start from the beginning and work your way down. The more panels you join the more chances at getting products to test, plus you can make money too with these panels.
As for being attacked, don’t write your review with that fear in mind. You are supposed to be writing for the customer in mind. I wrote a negative review about some probiotics once, and it gets more up-votes than any other product I reviewed recently. I still get asked to review probiotics (which I don’t accept anymore.)
I just started researching this to try out, I have never done this before. My question is I already have an Amazon prime account. Does this mean I have to use the email attached to prime account, or can I start a new email, like you suggested to have a dedicated email, for this review endeavor? Please let me know how I should do this. I rather open up a new email account so it’s separate from the one I use for my kids school, doctors, and personal things. Thank you in advance for your help.
An avid fan of the original E.V.O. Search For Eden, Spore is a wonderful game, that just doesn’t work well for later models of Windows unfortunately. Despite filtering through forums for solutions, nothing ever let me play this game again.
I can 100% guarantee you that BzzAgent does *not* pay you. They never have. I think you might be confusing them with another company. BzzAgent will award MyPoints for surveys and some activities, however.
This is the online guerrilla marketing method of PR. There is a unique benefit of getting product reviews from other websites that helps increase brand credibility and trustworthiness in addition to word-of-mouth marketing.
Through my struggles to find reviewers’ contact info on Amazon, I am going to show you how to make a better Amazon profile, one that helps the supplier choose you over others to try and review their products. This is not a guarantee that you will ever be asked to try a product, but a way that can vastly improve your chances of being asked.
KabelDireckt is open to the U.S. marketplace and several European marketplaces. Like EtekCitizen, the product offerings here are for only one brand, KabelDireckt. Their catalog is very slim as they specialize in computer cables. If you want to try one for free and are willing to write a review, this can be a good option to save a few bucks.
Ask. Can’t hurt to ask a Seller of a big ticket item you are interested in to send you a free or discounted product for a review. Give them some added value in that you will do a video review, share it on social media, and even post a review on multiple platforms in addition to Amazon.

Most of these have deteriorated over the past year from offering high quality items for review into a dumping ground for sellers seeking to score more attention for their dubious supplements, cheap electronics accessories, Chinese-made “dollar store” type goods, and more recently adult “novelties.”
Survey Club is another great, well-trusted panel I get quite a few products to test a month with good pay; they’re very well rated company and been around for years! Very fun panel to join! 💰 Pays by Cash and Gift Cards
One fatal flaw in *any* commentary on items that are purchased vs. items that are offered in exchange for review is that it assumes a higher quality review will come from someone who has paid. Some of the worst reviews come from people who bought products because they felt no obligation to really test them, but rated them based on something trivial such as the product not being the size they wanted or lacking a feature they wanted even though it was never advertised as having that feature and measurements were given clearly. People review DVDs not based on the media, packaging, or value, but on how well they liked the content and wanting to promote their favorite program.
Does that unfairly skew star ratings however? Probably, and maybe there’s an opportunity there for something like an extension to provide a weighted score by scanning for discount review disclaimers. I think there is real value for everyone in these types of reviews when they’re done right so as to minimize influencing the reviewer as much as possible, although it may be more qualitative than quantitative.
Are there certain types of products that are more likely to have fake reviews than others? Seems like cheap electronics might be one. But I would be surprised if books have many fake reviews. Do you have any info on that?
You are in no way obligated to give them a ‘good’ review, as you know. My advice is to simply respond with “I would love to review this, thanks!” After you get the product, feel free to send them feedback about asking you to write a ‘good’ review. Again, in my experience, no Seller has ever responded to my critiques of their emails. Which is why I wrote a blog post on the subject of writing better emails to Reviewers.
