Still, the problem remained: How could I make sure I wasn’t caught stuck on an airplane again without a dongle for a pair of earbuds? After digging around further, I ended up settling on something a bit more mundane than buying a three-pack of dongles of dubious quality. My search led me to the (unfortunately named) Dongle Dangler, which lets me stick my Lightning dongle on my key chain.

The compensated-review process is simple: Businesses paid to create dummy accounts purchase products from Amazon and write four- and five-star reviews. Buying the product makes it tougher for Amazon to police the reviews, because the reviews are in fact based on verified purchases. The dummy accounts buy and review all sorts of things, and some of the more savvy pay-for-review sites even have their faux reviewers pepper in a few negative reviews of products made and sold by brands that aren’t clients to create a sense of “authenticity.” In fact, for extra cash, a company can pay one of these firms to write negative reviews of a competitor’s product. Wirecutter contributor Brent Butterworth has written about this practice as well.

The honest answer to “How can I get free stuff to review on Amazon?” is simply to buy stuff on Amazon and submit meaningful reviews for the products. Increase your reviewer ranking on Amazon, and THEN vendors themselves will reach out to you and ask you to review their products.
Frankly, I’m glad they finally took it seriously. I have been feeling for some time now that Amazon was turning a blind eye to it all while honest reviewers were getting pummeled with downvotes and spending hours to do what someone else was paying others to do.
There is none that specializes in electronics. Some of them do send you electronics here and there, but I don’t think there is much of a chance to get a phone. Its mainly small electronics like chargers, headphones, etc.

As for what star to choose, go off of Amazon’s suggestions. When you hover over a star, they help you with a sentiment such as “I hate it”, “it’s okay”, and “I love it” to name a few. Think about the product as a whole, and match how you feel to the corresponding star. If it’s really “I hate it”, then select a 1-star. Don’t worry about what other reviewers chose or wrote. They have their own rationale for their review. You review for you.
NOTE: the difference between this company name link and the other company name link above it is that the one under the title of the product is a search link (does an Amazon search for that name), and the Sold by link is a link to their Amazon storefront.

ELITE is awesome I have gotten like 20 this week alone. They are super easy to get.I did notice that all my codes were mismatched though had to go through every code on my history to find the right one.
Now, the art of the pitch. Spend time crafting a pitch letter that succinctly tells a brief summary of book, why you’d like the specific reviewer to read it, and how you’d like to offer them a free copy. Include references to similar books they’ve already reviewed so they realize you have done your homework and it is not a blind request. If this seems too time consuming, create a boilerplate review request with highlighted fields for personalization, such as their name, and recent books they’ve reviewed. This way, you can update the highlighted fields to quickly personalize your pitch request for each reviewer.
You can review the way you want, but I suggest you treat every product as if you bought it, just the way real Amazon customers would feel about it. If you feel it is faulty and can be fixed, try contacting the company and asking for a replacement.

This issue of valid reviews is just as bad, if not worse, in the Amazon Video section — especially for Indie Films. One called “Fragmented” is a recent example. An awful film somehow achieved a 4.5 star rating; may positive reviews, all with similar wording, and all on the same day.
