Customer reviews are one of the most valuable tools we offer customers for making informed purchase decisions, and we work hard to make sure they are doing their job. In just the past year, we’ve improved review ratings by introducing a machine learned algorithm that gives more weight to newer, more helpful reviews; applying stricter criteria to qualify for the Amazon verified purchase badge; and suspending, banning or suing thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.
We are all about helping you find the product or service that works for you. We exist to make your complicated buying decisions easier. If you ever have any specific questions about the reviews on our site, please contact us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
This review program is part of the GMYLE brand, “developing MacBook, Tablet, Smartphone Accessories.” Like similar programs, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. When applying: Reviewers in “United States will receive first round pick. United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, France, Italy and Spain will become available after.”
To my eyes, Amazon could make its reviews more reliable in several ways. For one easy thing, it could weight reviews from verified purchases more heavily in its system — if every positive review of a product isn’t a verified purchase, while every negative review is a verified purchase, that should have a much larger impact on the displayed average score. Amazon says it’s reducing the number of unverified-purchase reviews an individual account can leave per week; this is a helpful step forward, but more can and should be done.
The exact amount is $50.00. I to am an author and have continuously run into this little snag. Over half of my friends and family rarely use Amazon. So when I ask them to leave reviews, they make the attempt. But since they haven’t spent in excess of $50, Amazon won’t allow it. And even if they have, half the time it still won’t go through.
I am old and would like to find some honest companies where I can use their products and send in my review and maybe get to keep some things mainly electronics books ect.I can also turn the products back in with review if need be.I am afraid of getting a bad company,how do u know if they are legitimate companies?
Something that needs to be mentioned is that if you are doing discounted reviews or free product reviews, you are required to leave a disclaimer stating that you got a promotional discount or free product. Its not an amazon reg but an Federal Trade Commission regulation
No. Members are not paid to participate in the program or to write reviews. Members will receive free product in exchange for writing reviews. There is no pressure or expectation to write positive reviews, and negative reviews do not affect membership the program.
With banks and retailers increasingly communicating their best deals over Twitter and Facebook, it can literally pay to follow or friend them. You can also use social media to request refunds or report problems, which can translate into savings. Just be sure to keep personal information like account numbers offline or in private messages.
This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.
I am a voracious reader and often read 2-3 novels and non-fiction per week. However, I don’t care too much for sci-fi and when I discovered Wool, I was concerned if it would appeal to a person who isn’t typically interested in sci-fi. The book was at the time the #1 ranked purchase on Kindle and had been downloaded almost double as many times as its nearest competitor. Thusly, I ordered and read the book despite the fact in all the reviews I couldn’t find one mention of anyone enjoying it despite not typically reading sci-fi.
