“how can i review products for amazon |amazon products review sites”

The problem is that most reviewers who received discounted products have incentives to provide positive reviews so that they receive more discounted products. (Marketers don’t choose reviewers at random.) So when a customer sees a positive “honest against discounted product” review, it is impossible to tell if the reviewer is *actually* being honest or being positive just to get more discounted products. It basically defeats the whole purpose of reviews.

“My Product Reviews” allows you to proactively manage the product reviews on the items you carry – even if you carry thousands of items. Reading the reviews can help you make decisions about existing and prospective items you might carry in your Amazon store. If reviews are positive, you might consider buying more inventory. If they are consistently negative, you might consider scrapping an item altogether.

3. Always tell the truth! Brands need truthful people to evaluate their products. If you lie, companies will not know if they need to make any improvements to their products. Also, you can get yourself removed from their program, and not get paid.

Also Devon, did you know I have a work from home blog? Check it out at http://www.EarningFreeMoney.com and I’ve listed several other companies to earn extra money from home. Throughout the years I’ve been finding legitimate companies to earn extra income and I share this information free to others.

The site is in German. They have a large marketplace of products with a category filter to help you sort through it. Products ranging from electronics to apparel, household goods and much more. Available for reviewers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

I would like to understand better is Amazon allowing vendors to submit products to customers with a 90-100% off coupon in return for “un-biased” reviews legitimately? I am finding this practice very deceptive due to the fact that the sellers are misleading the consumers. Some feedback states it was offered in exchange for a discounted price, is this actually acceptable practice by Amazon standards?

RateItAll is one of the most popular review sites. You can write reviews about everything, and I mean everything! Toys, Local bars and restaurants, games, products, people, places, books, music, movies, celebrities, dogs, poems, art, games, travel…. RateItAll is very unique compere to other review sites, in a sense that reviews are written in the form of bullet pointed lists about a topic, where everyone can share their opinions about it. You get 50% of the revenue generated by ads displayed nest to your reviews.

The sole exception to this rule is when a free or discounted copy of a physical product is provided to a customer up front. In this case, if you offer a free or discounted product in exchange for a review, you must clearly state that you welcome both positive and negative feedback. If you receive a free or discounted product in exchange for your review, you must clearly and conspicuously disclose that fact. Reviews from the Amazon Vine program are already labeled, so additional disclosure is not necessary. Read more about promotional content.

Thanks for the update, James. You are correct. This is now against Amazon’s TOS, however, it’s still encouraged to leave a review. We highly recommend this as well, as sometimes sellers will only give discounts to shoppers who have strong seller profiles.

I stumbled across this blog about 6 months ago and it inspired me to push myself to write as many reviews as possible, with the aim of climbing the Amazon reviewer rankings and becoming one of Amazons top reviewers.

Unable to help myself, I put the review in on Fakespot and ReviewMeta. Fakespot graded it a bit more gently than any of the Lightning dongles I’d looked at, knocking a few stars off but generally approving, and ReviewMeta was overall quite positive, discounting a few reviews but keeping its average rating of 4.8 stars intact. I hit buy, and it should be here by the end of the week. We’ll see if I end up leaving a review.

I review all of the time, but I’m wanting to start reviewing bigger products. Such as Bluetooth Speakers, and things like that. So, my question is how do I go about getting approved to review bigger products. Any advice you can give me would be wonderful.

These days, almost any “generic” item that you buy is sold from an (often Chinese) drop-shipper who invents a company name on the fly. Usually that company name is just two completely random words joined together, in order to avoid trademark infringement. E.g. “CoolPow” or “Flying Show”. Heck, I’ve even seen drop-shippers get lazy and use names like “abcGOOdef”. Seriously?

But unlike Siri, which is still secondary to touch as a means of interfacing with iOS devices, Alexa is essentially all the Echo has. It was critical for Amazon to get her right — thankfully, she delivers (and yes, calling Alexa “she” feels more correct than calling Alexa “it,” a testament to how personable she is).

Today, we updated the community guidelines to prohibit incentivized reviews unless they are facilitated through the Amazon Vine program. We launched Vine several years ago to carefully facilitate these kinds of reviews and have been happy with feedback from customers and vendors. Here’s how Vine works: Amazon – not the vendor or seller – identifies and invites trusted and helpful reviewers on Amazon to post opinions about new and pre-release products; we do not incentivize positive star ratings, attempt to influence the content of reviews, or even require a review to be written; and we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product. Vine has important controls in place and has proven to be especially valuable for getting early reviews on new products that have not yet been able to generate enough sales to have significant numbers of organic reviews. We also have ideas for how to continue to make Vine an even more useful program going forward. Details on that as we have them.

When the final list is complete, our reviewers reach out to manufacturers in search of no-strings-attached samples or products available on loan. Side note: Most manufactures are happy to provide samples – never mind the possibility of a bad review – because they believe in the quality of their products and look forward to the free press – good, or bad. In some instances, when a product sample is not available, we head to the store and shell out the cash to pick it up just like you would.

The products on display at Product Elf is impressive (perhaps only second to AMZ) and they do an amazing job to keep their website updated almost on daily basis (so the freshness is always there – in term of product variation and look and feel of the web page).

Having said all this, unless you currently sell a product that’s going viral or has been seen on Shark Tank, garnering customer reviews is not easy. There are, however, many simple and affordable ways to entice customers to tell the world what they think of the products they’ve bought.

With Loreal testing panel they are not bogus… You have to qualify for their product tests and it can be quite frustrating if you are not chosen. I have been with them for about 3 years and have only qualified for 3 product tests but it was worth it to me. I received a nice gift bag each time as a thank you filled with lots of great products.

The amazing variety of products here means that I can afford to pick and choose on what makes great reviews on my end. The process is almost immediate, which is good as it means no waiting. Naturally, the products being featured here are expected to move fast and you need to regularly scrutinize your e-mail so as not to miss out on a nice product.

No argument there! I only found it recently, when I was looking at stereo equipment, and trying to get things that were only the specific item, so I took to clicking on all the things trying to find a filter.

So based on that, I personally don’t think ProductTestingUsa.com is a real legit product testing company. Keep in mind that this is from my very limited interaction with their website and that of Tracy’s experience.

“amazon product review theme |review the products directory amazon”

I’ve tested a lot of products over the years that I don’t remember how many! LOL! I’ve tested electronics, toys, food products, beauty products, household products, adult products, websites, and so much more!

I am a BzzAgent, and it took about a month before I got anything to try even after filling out what seemed like a hundred surveys. Now, I am bombarded with products and having a blast. Please hang in. I almost gave up on them, but I’m glad I didn’t.

Hi Tristan. Great information! I just wanted to underscore a sentence you wrote above regarding receiving payment post-review (I work in an industry where the payment based upon success of the product is frowned upon/illegal/immoral as well). As you point out, this is so important: “It’s payment for review (a gray area, or flat out forbidding), and open for being taken advantage of by the person requesting the review.” Again, great article and advice within the comment section. BTW, No, Tristan did not pay me for this comment!

Oz Naturals is another review site that only sells products for their brand. In this case, you can review skin care products for only a few dollars. This can be a good option for the health-conscious as Oz Naturals only use natural and organic active ingredients.

This week, I received two different blouses that normally retail for $20 each, a vegan face lotion ($26), a tooth whitening kit ($45) and a set of baby bibs ($20). I could accept more, but I choose to only review products I can truly use, or ones I can give away to my friends and family.

Still, if it’s audio quality you’re concerned with, you can find better-sounding speakers at this price. The option to sync the Echo up with an external sound system and use it more strictly as a point of control would be a good fix, and a nice touch for the audiophiles out there. That’s an option with the pint-sized Echo Dot, but not with the full-sized Echo. Amazon seems pretty committed to the idea of the Echo as an all-in-one device.

There are companies that choose to send me the product directly. I often notify them of the option of a coupon code and tell them the benefits above. I find a lot of companies don’t even know they can do that, and about half choose to send a coupon code.

Now, the companies you have listed gives out free products in return for a review so you can help them market their brand. These products you are reviewing is already in stores so all the companies need from you is a review.

Run a contest. This is an effective way to market your business with a little help from your current customers. We shared some social contest ideas in our recent post on social promotions that can impact your bottom line, but keeping things simple is always a good idea. Ask customers to add a hashtag on Instagram or post a quick note on your Facebook page. Lensbaby regularly runs Facebook contests asking fans to submit photos, like the heart bokeh image at the top of this post, that show off what their unique lenses can do.

Have you tried houseparty.com. You don’t get paid but can get free products (food and beverages, tv, movies, music, household products, and products for kids). I think you have to apply to be a host for whatever products you are interested in, invite friends and family, and best of all, have fun!! I’m going to apply to a few today.

Hi Tristan,..Thank you for this article, I found it very interesting and informative. I found this post a couple of months ago, I kept seeing disclaimers on reviews that were not from Vine members and my curiosity sparked I remember googling “how to receive free products for Amazon reviews” or something along that line and it lead me here! I have mostly always left reviews for products I’d bought on Amazon and on a some of them I have had positive feedback on them averaging 90-95% helpful. I had always been interested wondering how people got invited onto the Vine Programme but after reading your article here I decided to follow your advice and see if anything would become of it. My profile initially had very little information so I uploaded a recent photo, added my location and filled it in mentioning my hobbies and activities I enjoy, provided my email address, saved my settings that when my profile page is viewed it shows my reviews which is I guess the sellers also read. I have always enjoyed writing my reviews and thought that if I was contacted with a request for reviews it would be a bonus…who doesn’t like the odd freebie??!! 🙂 I never really thought much would come of it to be honest, I had only written approximately 30 reviews at that time and was ranked 3700 in reviewers so I wasn’t high on the list.

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.

The discussion great! I also want to know the honest reviewer to review my product and tell me how I can do better or pad my shoulder for a strenght to on going. When we are still small in biz, all those encouragement, comments and reviews are important.

Getting your customers to leave feedback on Amazon is a breeze, thanks to FeedbackFive’s automatic solicitation and timing rules. Customize your timing preferences so that customers receive emails at the time when they are most likely to open the message, click through, and leave feedback.

Agreed, I’ve received discounted products to review as well and I am a Prime Amazon member so I’d hate to fool my fellow consumers. Just because I received it with a heavy discount doesn’t mean I’m handing out stars like a kindergarten teacher. It really just takes common sense to figure out if a product is worth buying or giving a shot.

Most of the offers ask me if I am interested in the item first and then give me the info to get them. A few, however, just send out a lists of codes with a first come, first served approach. I can’t check my email non-stop, so I have missed out on all of those.

Create your detailed request to review the product. Include the link to your Amazon profile, the product name or ASIN in your request, and what kind of review you will do (detailed, with pictures, seller feedback, etc).

SnagShout launched recently and varies quite a bit from HonestFew. You still need to register for an account, however, and at that point you will gain access to a marketplace of items that are available from Amazon at discounted prices. The majority of the discounts offered are between 30 and 90 percent off, depending on the product, but you will even find a few items that are free. Items listed on the site run the gamut from toys to beauty products to general household items such as flashlights and bedroom sets. There’s a little bit of everything.

I just read through the squidoo article. Now that I think of it… I did do a survey on BzzAgent that asked me about my child playing with Transformers but I didn’t qualify because he’s a one year old. I also did 2 surveys on Smiley360 one of which asked if I had a dog and I don’t so I didn’t qualify so I think that was the Greenies test product and the other one at the end said I qualified to test Oxyclean 2in1 Stain Fighter. I think I’m starting to understand how these panels work! I’ll just continue to fill out my surveys!

So it’s easy to see why reviews can make or break an Amazon seller’s business. And that is why companies give away their products for free or with deep discounts to shoppers in exchange for their reviews.

“how to get free products on amazon in exchange for review _how to get amazon products free for review”

The article has some good points but focuses a lot on fake reviews. More problematic in my opinion are the worthless reviews from real people who never actually used the product they got for free (or, nowadays, for a few pennies.) Or the Vine reviewer who eBays the products without opening the package – you can tell.

Since I wrote my answer many things have changed. Over a year ago Amazon changed the reviewer rules. You no longer required to leave a review for a product you get for a reduced price. You can only leave about 4 reviews a month for things purchased at a reduced price. AMaxon rejects so many reviews especially bad reviews now. And because they can no longer require you to leave a review, the merchandise is no longer free and is not discounted as much. I was always a truthful reviewer. I told it like it was. But I stopped because it is no longer worth it.

Deals for Review allows you to get deals for at least 50% off. They even partner with sellers to sample products before they launch for feedback. Most of the products available on this site are for lower-priced items. But, you can still find some good deals on items you will use.

4. Do not speed through a survey that the brands send you.  Product testing Panels cannot use your survey if they noticed that you rushed through it. Your survey will look like your answers are untruthful and cannot be used which will lead you to getting removed from program and money you earned is forfeited.

You seem like a smart person, so I think you could understand the algorithm, but it would take a lot of time like it would for anyone else and understanding it wouldn’t give you the ability to change it or have any value worth the time it would take you to research it.

Requesting and publishing customer reviews in an essential, ongoing part of doing business online. Using the steps listed here can convince shoppers that you’re trustworthy and have great products. They can also inspire other customers to share their thoughts about the products you sell.

I was a member of Walmart’s Spark Reviewer program, which they have just announced (via an email to the Spark Reviewers) that they are ending. I really enjoyed getting the free products (f.ex., things as inexpensive as a new variety of Triscuits or as fancy as a new convertible laptop onto which I was instructed to download Windows 10 the day it was released), and would love to continue doing something similar for another website’s program (such as Amazon Vine). Are there other programs similar to Amazon Vine or Walmart Spark Reviewer out there, and if so, would experience as a Walmart Spark Reviewer be at all helpful in getting an invitation to participate?

The Platform offers reviewers a personalized profile page, documenting their reviewing history. If a reviewer has completed at least one review in two years, they become a ‘Recognized Reviewer’. ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ status is awarded to those who belong to the top 10th percentile in terms of the number of completed reviews for a specific journal in years. Editors can also hand pick reviewers and award them with a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and other perks.

CR was one of the first groups to test food packaging for BPA. After working to pass bans in several states, the FDA finally announced a federal ban on BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups (2012) and infant formula packaging (2013).

Anyone noticing that is only noticing what they want to believe. There are unlimited “negative or even critical” Vine review. Unlimited! It’s a myth that those who get Vine products are less likely or incapable of writing critical reviews. Believers always refer to some past research project to verify that belief, too. Go read Vine reviews, and stop perpetuating an untruth. Besides those who believe that myth, most other complaints about Vine reviews are by those who are jealous they don’t get free items to review. If they got an invitation to join Vine, you better believe they would change their way of thinking instantly. They would tell themselves it’s not a totally dishonest program, and they would make it a more honest program by becoming a member.

I recommend always sticking to your guns and only dealing with people who you believe won’t ask something shady of you. There are plenty of new products coming out every day so you won’t be missing out on anything. You’ll just feel better in the long run by keeping your integrity.

“amazon product review group _amazon product review removal”

I have been a NewEgg Eggxpert for about 3 to 4 years and have posted QUITE A FEW BAD REVIEWS about both Products AND Services over the years. I have NEVER GOTTEN “DINGED” by ANY Company and/or Service for a “BAD” Review. As a matter of fact I did a BAD Review on a Western Digital Portable HD once and I got a Reply Message (ON the NewEgg Review Site itself – surprised the heck out of me) praising my honesty and truthfulness. The person who replied even said that he wished MORE REVIEWERS were as honest in their reviews as I was. He also stated that ALL the problems/issues that I had listed with the product itself would be tested and/or fixed or modified ASAP.

Like a few other review sites mentioned here, VIP Power Club will notify you when deals are available instead of crawling through their database and applying for products. Most offers are between 90% and 100% off and you can expect to pay no more than $5 for most items.

I don’t buy items with Vine reviews. People may say they are being unbiased but it’s just not true. You are going to be more reasonable in your review for a product you paid hard earned money for. I was looking for a shower head recently and had a difficult time weighing the good ones against the bad because so many of them had those freebie reviews. I ended up not buying the shower head from Amazon altogether.

Reviews may get taken down if others label them inaccurate or if they don’t comply with Google’s review policies. You can’t contact someone who left an inappropriate review, but you can request that Google remove it.

Most of the offers ask me if I am interested in the item first and then give me the info to get them. A few, however, just send out a lists of codes with a first come, first served approach. I can’t check my email non-stop, so I have missed out on all of those.

I have no idea if this helped anyone, but it would have helped me. I think in most of my reviews I have approached them as such, and will likely continue to do so. To me the key to any review is to stand out as offering a critique or kudo, that isn’t what has already been said. Otherwise, just click a star rating and move on.

One downside here is that they tend to mix it up here! Sometimes you find fabulous deals that save you a lot but there are also lots of what I call cheap deals. I mean, 50% off is great but then it is not great saving when you apply them to those that cost little (like 5 bucks) in the first place.

Among all the different types of marketing inserts, like thank you cards, discounts, and cross-sells, we are interested in asking for a product review. It shouldn’t be the only thing you care about, but it should be your main goal for the purposes of this article. And since Amazon doesn’t forbid this type of messaging, you should take advantage of it.

The price went up after the sale ended I guess, and a lot of others had left similar five star reviews in the interum. Really the Anker is a good headphone even for $25, was lucky myself to have caught it at $20.

I like Amazon’s 14 leadership principles (LP) and the company’s culture formed based on LPs. Many companies have culture out there but not every company and employee can truly internalize it. At Amazon, I met many good performers who truly internalized the LPs and apply them in their daily work. For example, teams are often “customers” to each other internally, and you can see that LPs such as customer obsession, think big etc. are impacting every decision making. Such practices not only benefit one’s customers but benefit their own work as well.

Studies have shown that word of mouth is the most powerful marketing tool – even in an online age, when a fellow human being tells us about something great, we listen with open ears. Although our lives are vastly different than our neanderthal ancestors, we aren’t as far removed as we think. We are still programmed to make choices based on the actions of others. There is safety in numbers with the herd mentality, so when we see a lot of people recommending an item and saying they HAVE to have it, we tend to feel likewise.

I’ve been on the top 500 Reviewers list for a while and have occasionally contemplated contacting sellers and asking for a specific product to review, but never have because it just seems tacky to me. As far as I know, doing so isn’t against Amazon TOS. It IS FCC regulation that you must disclose in your review that you received a discounted or free sample to review.

Maybe a few paragraphs about how the rise of online shopping has affected academia, or whatever, but you’d probably rather just find out what PhD student Alastair Gibbons has been doing with a vibrator, so here:

1.      Find the top reviewers. First we’ll scour the Amazon list of Top Reviewers. You’ll see the page is divided into Top Reviewer Rankings and Hall of Fame Reviewers. Hall of Fame holds the long-time legacy reviewers, while the Top Review Rankings shows the best Amazon contributors at the current moment. Hall of Fame shows the reviewers’ title badges and accolades, although you can get this same info mousing over names in the Top Reviewers section.

There are more popping up all the time, but there are a select few with great reputations that you can be sure will deliver what they promise. After testing a whole range of sites ourselves we have come up with a list of the most trusted product testing sites below.

Over 90% of Amazon buyers typically fail to leave feedback. In addition, customers with a negative experience are more motivated to leave feedback. What is your strategy for getting more feedback on Amazon?

Prepare for the worst. You’ll get bad reviews. Maybe even really terrible ones. Criticisms may be indelicate, undeserved, or even downright cruel, and there’s no internet police who will come around and slap those naughty complainers on the wrists. That means it’s up to you to handle the situation. We suggest that you…

Very good article. I enjoy using the Panny 25mm f1.7 (which first came out at US$99!) and 45-150, the Samyang (Rokinon) 12mm f2 (though I paid less than $240 on sale so I think your $600 might be for the t/2.2 geared video version). I would suggest including a fisheye (Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 ~$250) and ultra zoom (Panny 100-300mm).

You may have noticed that some of our reviews and rankings are slow to update. That could be because very little has changed in a particular product group. For example, stand mixers have not changed much in 20 years, so until something better than the Kitchen Aid comes along, you might not see an update to our review in 12 months – or until the new models arrive.

“how to test and review products for amazon how can i get free products to review on amazon”

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.

This is a relaunch of AMZ Review Trader under a new name. They have a huge marketplace of discounted products. Typically a LOT of products per email with even more on the site. Available to reviewers in USA, UK, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico.

When you receive your item, please make sure to verify that it was not damaged in transit. If there is any reason that you wouldn’t rate this as a 5-star experience, please let us know. If everything looks fine, we would appreciate if you could take a few seconds to click the link below and rate this transaction.

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.

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.

“amazon product review site amazon product review request email template”

I noticed you recently reviewed [other company’s product]. I’m a seller in a similar category and have just brought to market a set of [their product] in bright and fun colors that I would love to offer you for free in return for a totally honest review.

Of course I would not be getting paid to review products, and certainly this big player’s lawyers have determined that this is not in violation of the this big player’s Amazon reviews for free/discounted products contract terms. So participating in this favorable or unfavorable for the review community?

I signed up for snagshout yesterday and was able to snag 2 deals the same day. At first it said my limit was 1, but after I entered my amazon profile url and snagged my first item it told me my limit had increased to 2, so I snagged another. It said I’ve earned a “helpful” badge, based on the helpful votes on reviews I had previously written. I should receive both items in the next day or 2,with prime.

One advantage to shopping on Vipon is that you can apply to try 20 products at once. The downside is that each individual merchant must approve your request. Many other review sites treat deals as “first come first serve” with instant approval.  You might be approved by the next business day or it can take several weeks.

According to Amazon, “Vine is an invitation-only program. All Vine products are submitted by vendors to Amazon and distributed by Amazon to the Vine Voices. Vendors have no contact with the Vine Voices, and have no influence over which Vine Voices will review their products.”

Filling out your profile is one thing, optimizing it so suppliers can get a sense of who you are and easily contact you is another. The Amazon profile in use today has a space for “pen name”, signature, location, email, website, occupation, About Me, and Interests. None of this except your ‘pen name’ is required to be filled out, though the more you fill out the more optimal your profile will be to suppliers looking for people to review their products.

I recently signed up with Elite Deal Club. Basically you can get free/ deeply discounted products in exchange for an honest unbiased review on Amazon. I don’t think it would be worth it if you don’t have Amazon prime, since you would have to pay shipping. I have gotten 18 products so far. Totally worth it!!!

My name is Natasha I am 26 years old and a single mom if 4 children. We have two dogs and some fish as well. I see you have a lot of use things on you’re page I’m wondering if you have the time could you recommend anything to me. I’m interested in money,surveys testing products at home even being paid by the products I’m testing. Thanks in advance for you’re time my email just in case you have time to help tpetrie6739@yahoo.com

Although, in theory, these reviewers could write their true opinion on the product – positive or negative – these incentivized reviews have tended to be overwhelmingly biased in favor of the product being rated.

I do the same thing, I’ll generally look at the 3 Star Reviews as well, those people seem to be most critical about the product. “It is good, but…” are my favorite ones because they point out parts or issues of the product you don’t think of.

The site positions itself as a professional review panel. They very likely are interested if you are some kind of publisher, experienced product reviewer, social media influencer, or blogger. You state your interest in the site and their marketing experts will contact you, subject to their screening and scrutiny.

I have managed to review and get some of the “not so mainstream” products here. This practice is a departure of other review web sites that so incline to push the usual types of merchandise before you. And they are big on supplements as well.

I’ve been successful in more than a few cases sending a nice email to some top reviewers, and in those instances received not only favorable reviews, but gained a fan for my books and a good network connection. I think it’s important to build relationships like that.

(3) If you start the game and only get a black screen with a big blue cursor (sometimes I got music in the background, but I usually didn’t), this doesn’t appear to be a video compatibility issue, at least in our case. Once you get the Spore cursor on your screen, click command-Q. This will take you out of the game and give you a message that you must quit from inside the game. Click OK and then it takes you back to the game, but now you can see/hear everything. Odd, but it works – and it needs to be done every time you start the game.

Amazon (AMZN) this week said it will ban “incentivized” reviews, or product ratings that are provided in exchange for a free or discounted product. The ban comes after the company already took steps against phony paid reviews, with mixed results. Even after legal action from Amazon last year, fake reviews continued to proliferate on the site.

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.

By the way, I would disagree with the “Vipon is dead” posted above. It’s not like it used to be but I still get a few products there. I’ve got 10-12 from them over the past month. Their site is down this weekend while they move to new servers and update the site.

Vindale Research is not a get paid to review site per se, but in a sense you do make money by sharing your opinion and ideas about products and services you use in your daily life. They pay up to $75 per survey/review. If you sign up with just one site, I would highly recommend you sign up with Vindale.

Have you ever seen some random product for sale that’s from some brand you’ve never heard of, and the company has no website—yet its widget has somehow garnered 15,000 five-star reviews since … last week? We sure have. This situation is likely the result of a compensated-review program. Such compensated reviews—orchestrated by businesses that cater to companies that want more public positive feedback—violate Amazon’s terms of use but are difficult to police. (This arrangement is not to be confused with program, in which companies provide products to users in exchange for an honest opinion, although those reviews can be problematic in their own way. You can read our thoughts on them below.)

I will bend over backward to find positive things to say about it, and I will paint it as positively as I possibly can. But if it’s less than quality, I’d rather commit to provide you feedback to that extent directly. And simply not say anything publicly. Is that okay?

1. IF you do get an opportunity to become a Professional Reviewer (for ANYONE), SAVE COPIES OF ALL CORRESPONDENCE (BOTH TO AND FROM EVERYONE) in a DEDICATED FOLDER (DIRECTORY) such as one Directory for NewEgg, one for Amazon and so on and so forth. This will make finding a particular message MUCH easier AND FASTER.

“Before I begin my review on this product, let me set the record straight on something. NewEgg DOES NOT PAY their Eggxpert Reviewers ANY MONEY for a review (GOOD OR BAD – ON ANY PRODUCT)!!! When they 1st asked me to become a reviewer, they told me that I could post ANY TYPE of review that I wanted to, either GOOD OR BAD! The only thing that they asked me to do was to be honest in my review, which I try to be. Now that this is finished, let’s start…”

However, sometimes their deals tend to vary. They had some spatulas on sale for $6 dollars, which I didn’t consider to be a very good deal. I could’ve gotten the same thing on another page almost for free.

This was also a decision has hit the private label community like a sledgehammer. “Now what?” is the question you see most often around the different Amazon private label Facebook groups. The number one trick that most private labelers used to increase their sales velocity and trust is gone.

As the name implies, the focus is on Toilet Tree products. At the point of writing, they claim that their membership number is adequate and not looking out for more. But they use to recruit new members on weekly basis. So just fill out the form and they will get in touch if they see you as a good addition to their pool of members.

Here are some tips for installing and starting the game that, after an unsuccessful install attempt, took me a while to find through searching multiple forums: (this is based on installing to a newer version of a MacBook Pro)

Hi ive just written my book called Goodness and Mercy under Frederick Amina at Amazon book’s. If anyone is looking for a good read this is the book to read. This is the book it’s about alcoholism divorce drug addiction bitterness anger hatred and jealousy forgiveness unforgiveness anxiety poverty fear worry love happiness death suicide lost of a loved one Redemption and so much more all in one book. Thanks

Hello. Have you ever tried Giveaway Service? We’d like to point out that there are 19,500+ influential authors who individually receive thousands daily visitors and have over 190,000+ combined Facebook fans looking to review products via our website. More than 45,500 reviews have been published through our service that exists for roughly one year and is growing constantly. We are committed to making both businesses and authors satisfied with our services and encourage everyone to leave a comment and join the discussion.

When asking for reviews, make sure you’re asking the right questions. You don’t just want to know if your customers liked the product. You want to know how they’re using it (explanation, photo, video), who they’d recommend it to, and if the product has changed something in their life.

I have used or attempted to use over a dozen of these “free for review” websites. I started doing this sometime in April or May. A lot of these websites either have only so-so deals or they never seem to approve anything, even after months of trying…. But a few have been good. By far the best deals i’ve found are on “AMZ Review Trader” and “Review Kick”. The thing is that You have to be patient. In the beginning (for a month or so) they were slow to approve deals. And initially they would only approve one or two at a time. But once you are established on the site and they see that you will leave a quality review (be thorough, and adding some nice pics helps) you will get approved faster. Over time the sellers offering the better deals will start to approve you more. And the websites will also let you redeem more coupon codes at once. I’ve gotten awesome freebies from both sites over the past few months. Sometimes items aren’t totally free but are very heavily discounted and it is totally worth it.

Let’s say that during calendar year 2016, 10 of the sellers I refer spend 1,000 in the site’s platform fees during their first month, will I then be issued an IRS form 1099 indicating that I earned 10,000 in taxable (to me) income? Sure, prior to completing my “refer a seller program membership upgrade”, I would be aware of this since I’ll have read the site agreement’s fine print. Yes, I do that when my tablet and my phone prompt me to upgrade iOS software, just like I do when an upgrade/update message from iTunes/MS Word/Acrobat Reader appears on my screen asking me to click, “agree” prior to clinking, “install.” Sure I do.

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.

Believe it or not, but you can purchase a personal tank style cruiser on Amazon for just 19 grand. Not surprisingly, this product elicited a number of hilarious reviews, though this one in particular really stands out.

I’ve tried repeatedly to reach out to AMZ Review Trader because I always get a pop up that my URL is already in use.. I don’t share my Amazon account with anyone, and this was my first time trying to sign up (several times), so apparently someone is using my URL. No one is answering my emails, they just have an automated response system that directs you back to the FAQs page because they don’t have enough help to answer the reviewer emails. I have also tried the FB page, nothing. I’ve tried all avenues to get into contact with someone there who may be able to look up my URL in my system and see who’s fraudulently using it. I’ve worked very hard at my reviews, and the thought of someone swiping my URL really, really annoys me.

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.)

As Product Elf has grown in popularity so quickly, they have over 40,000 reviewers, discount codes can disappear quickly. New offers are uploaded on a daily basis as sellers are launching new products all the time.

Defendants are in the business of providing such fake reviews. Each of the John Doe defendants in this action utilizes the website Fiverr.com (“Fiverr”) to sell Amazon reviews. Fiverr is a global online marketplace offering tasks and services,  beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name. The site is

What I hate is when the public assumes that you give something 5 stars you are a ‘FAKE.’ One thing that needs to be made clear is that a FAKE reviewer, as used in the lawsuits, involved people that were taking money and NEVER SEEING an item, just writing whatever the vendor told them to write! Realize not everyone has the same working definition of “FAKE.” Fake is not the same as compensated or commissioned.

“Thanks for asking me to review your product. I want to let you know that I feel uncomfortable being asked by a Seller to up-vote other reviews since this goes against Amazon’s policy forbidding “solicitations for helpful votes” (source: http://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/customer-reviews-guidelines).

If Amazon actually made it as easy to post reviews about the shipping and purchase process as for products themselves, then I would believe they actually care about that. But they don’t because they don’t want their own problems highlighted. It’s not as if this was unintentional; Bezos’ “Iron Rule” is not that ignorant.

Awesome. Thank you so much for that link. I’ve been searching everywhere trying to get a clear answer for who can leave a review. We just started selling our own products on Amazon and have our own site and are on other platforms, and wanted to use that customer base to leave reviews on Amazon to be found there. It’s clearly spelled out at that link that that is okay and won’t be punished. Thanks again!

I cover this in the post “The Downvoting Game on Amazon Reviews. They are targeting Sellers and Reviewers that paid money to others to write bogus reviews and up/down vote reviews for them. This is a case of some serious offenses, not Amazon going after reviewers that fail to put that they got the item for free or at a discount. In short, it’s fraud and deception they are trying to stop.

I’ve been reviewing a lot through sample programs. I’ve specialized in one area (beauty products) and now I’d like to contact some sellers about products I’d like to review. Some of them have even done Vine promotions so it looks like they may be receptive. It’s REALLY difficult to contact a seller that you haven’t already ordered from. Do you know how to reach them?

How do I know they are fake you ask… Easy, look at the other products that the person has reviewed, there usually are not any, but when they are they are all from the same seller. Another way is that someone will have like 50 reviews in a 2 day period, but then no other positive reviews, ever. Another way, You will see a reviewer review different products with different descriptions about who they are (e.g., “I am a professional plumber so…”, “As a professional photographer, I think…”, “As a large man, I found…”, “As a single mother…” all from the same person). Another indicator is when they use the same broken English in multiple 5 star reviews or misspell the exact same word the same way under different names (no verified purchase, of course). Of course, none of these are 100% guarantees they are fake, but once you start looking for them, it becomes obvious.

In a blog post, Amazon said it’s improving its review ratings by introducing an algorithm that gives weight to reviews that are more helpful. It said it’s also suspending, banning or suing “thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.” 

This was also a decision has hit the private label community like a sledgehammer. “Now what?” is the question you see most often around the different Amazon private label Facebook groups. The number one trick that most private labelers used to increase their sales velocity and trust is gone.

They have a huge marketplace supporting reviewers in 12 countries. And a contest they run each week giving away a $25 voucher. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China.

Amazon is doing their best to combat fake reviews, but honestly, they aren’t doing a ton. In a way we’re dealing with the same black vs. white hat problem of whether or not you should buy Twitter followers, which is a tremendously controversial topic.

Please be careful, some of the ones on your list are against Amazon Reviewer and Seller Terms of Service and you will have your profile flagged and possible account removal. Stopped going through your list when I hit “Deals for Reviews”. It is against Amazon TOS to offer additional incentives (IE Random winners of gift cards) to reviewers other than just the free product. Reviews are also being deleted left and right because sellers are abusing the reviewer rights by manipulating the system by offering too many free products for free or at discounts to get their ranks up. Won’t be long before the Amazon terms will be changed again and ALL of these sites will fall.

Research shows that users like to read reviews about both new and used items. We require reviewers to indicate the condition of items they are reviewing to ensure that the most relevant information is provided to buyers. We will continue to evaluate how buyers use the information and will make adjustments when appropriate.

“Asics roadtester program is available to New Zealand residents only. ” When I clicked on the link to sign up for the Asics program for some reason it didn’t take me directly to the sign up page, I had to type into their search bar to find how to sign up, when I did I read the’Terms and Conditions’ which stated that you ” Had to be a resident of New Zealand”, I’m not sure why that is but, it’s their company and they have the right to set the rules… I love the products and wish that I could participate and submit my feedback on new products. Oh well, it is what it is. I just thought that you might like to know this… Thanks for all of your hard work and valuable information. 🙂

But they use to recruit new members on weekly basis. So just fill out the form and they will get in touch if they see you as a good addition to their pool of members.

Although, in theory, these reviewers could write their true opinion on the product – positive or negative – these incentivized reviews have tended to be overwhelmingly biased in favor of the product being rated.

“how to get free products in exchange for amazon reviews _amazon product review article template”

What the system needs is a removal of ranking of reviewers and the helpful/unhelpful systems moving the reviewers around on the page (they should all be chronological and sortable by stars). Honestly, I see absolutely no reason to rank reviewers and create a competitive environment. This is about the products, not the people reviewing them, and I say that as a top 1000 reviewer.

With product testing sites, the latter is less common than the first. Furthermore, most sites send coupon codes so they and or the Seller can use the Amazon Seller Center to track usage, and more importantly, get the “Verified purchase” badge on the review.

I’ve been thinking of blogging again for the affiliate possibilities. Problem is, finding a topic. I never got products from companies when I blogged before. What’s the secret — is it the topics covered?

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.

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.

Thanks, Lynn, for all of your wonderful tips and replies! If you have any experience with some or all of the review sites listed here, we sure could benefit from your feedback and tips. Each page has a comments section for that review site.

As I said in another comment, Vine Voices are selected by Amazon based on the qualities of the reviews the people have written. I see nothing wrong with it; I get free books via NetGalley, which I review because I love books. If I had paid for them, I’d review them in exactly the same way.

These are the best Amazon review sites to choose from. As you will notice, there are many different sites to choose from and each one will have a different product selection to complement your shopping needs.

This is new kid on the block. Launched just this year, it promises free registration and a multitude of products choices. If they deem you suitable for any particular review work, they will notify you through e-mail.

I will bend over backward to find positive things to say about it, and I will paint it as positively as I possibly can. But if it’s less than quality, I’d rather commit to provide you feedback to that extent directly. And simply not say anything Is that okay?

I filled out so many testing item surveys it’s not funny. It’s been s few months and I don’t even get any emails for anything related to the site. It’s not worth it. I also did the surveys for offer bucks.com and you have to have all 10 validated before you get your $100, I have only had one validated and it’s been months. I emailed them twice and never got a response. Don’t waste your time like I did.

I looked around and do not see an Amazon Seller Directory where you can contact Sellers directly. This might be useful to the reviewing community as well as the Seller community. I will look into the feasibility of building such a directory here on The Reviewer Collective. Probably catch hell from Amazon, but we’ll see.

Lum, a genial Canadian, offered this assessment: “The products Amazon shows you are the products that are most profitable for Amazon as a company.” If Amazon were to suddenly do a massive sweep of existing reviews as aggressive as what Fakespot or ReviewMeta might do, you’d suddenly see a lot more products with far fewer reviews, and a lot of customers suddenly uncertain about what exactly to buy.

Spore is a fun game with it’s problems. If the DRM is going to be a huge problem for you I would not recommend the game. If your the hardcore type gamer who is looking for a challenge, your better off finding a different game. If your like me and your looking for a (mostly) simple game with easy and simplified gameplay and fun creation aspects, then this game is definitely suited for you.

While soliciting reviews can seem to take a lot of time and effort, their value cannot be underestimated. Reviews immediately add credibility to your book, communicating to potential customers that it is a worthy read. They also improve your book’s ranking when consumers are searching on Amazon, which is the primary reason to stay committed to getting reviews. If you’re able to move your title into earlier search pages, you’ll be discovered by readers who wouldn’t otherwise find you. And that, hopefully, will translate into more book sales.

The Chinese crap on Amazon is out of control. Not only the non-UL listed electronics, but the sweat-shop clothing that no ethical store would ever import (easily recognized by the measurements being in centimeters and the fractured explanations of how size XXL equals an American/European size S).

Review.Directory is another review site that allows you to sample free products and share your reviews on Amazon or other social media channels. You will be emailed promotions from a campaign director. This can also be a good option for bloggers as some sellers are also wanting to run giveaways. In addition to reviewing the product yourself, you can potentially get paid to help others enjoy the product.

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.

This site launched at the end of July 2016. They show a handful of sample products on their home page: costumes, toys, beauty supplies, electronics, speakers, phone cases, apparel, video camera, and more. Available for reviewers in the UK.

The top reviewers for Amazon have earned their status for a reason; they review everything from books to electronics, and other consumers rank their reviews as useful. While you might assume these reviewers are out of your reach—after all, they likely receive hundreds of requests a day—they are still worth contacting. Even if only a few end up reviewing your book, their reviews could make all the difference.

Great article, but I did not set up reviews as all my items are one of a kind antique etc and when it is sold it is removed is there a way to set up reviews for the store or web site? Any suggestions?

They send out weekly emails with product to review. Their ‘recently featured products’ looks impressive. Available for reviewers in the USA (with UK, Germany and Canada coming soon. Email them to be added to the non-USA list.

I read some places that you need to be ranked so high to be considered, but I’ve never bothered to verify that, because it won’t affect how I write reviews. I’d love to be a Vine member, but only if an invitation were extended with how I write reviews naturally. That seems in contrast to some Vine reviews I read, which come across as an attempt to market the product.

iLoveToReview offers discounts on many accessory products that cost less than $10. If you like testing charging cables, fashion accessories, or small kitchen tools, you might enjoy iLoveToReview. They also have offers on more expensive items like clothing, cookware, and high-powered flashlights.

“amazon product review vs seller feedback _amazon product review plugin”

This site has one of the largest public marketplaces I have ever seen on a review site! Lots of ladies fashion, phone accessories, cables, umbrellas, jewelry, and toys (at time of writing.) Available to reviewers in USA.

Once have framed and asked for the review and created the URL for them to leave that review, you need to design the marketing insert. This shouldn’t be too hard nor too complicated if you have a designer in your team. But even if you don’t, you should try to make it as simple as possible, as long as your branding doesn’t get affected.

It’s worth noting at this stage that not every user of product testing sites gets sent something to test. This is because there are 1000s of users and they simply can’t afford to send out 1000+ free TVs for example. But they do say, if you don’t buy a ticket you can’t win the raffle…

I do NOT contact companies before I write a bad review about a product. There was one time where I wrote a bad review about some earphones and the company sent out another set because they thought mine were faulty. Second set worked better, so I amended my review. I also once got asked to take down a bad review stating ‘I did not know how to use the product’ (they were ear buds.) I do not take do reviews, only amend them.

If you need to contact Amazon about a review, you should email review-appeals@amazon.com with the order number and your profile link. That email is manned by real people who focus on nothing but reviews, and is much safer than just calling or emailing them through the website.

Have an Amazon account with preferably a Prime membership. Prime is not required but if you plan on doing reviews regularly, you may want to consider getting a membership so you won’t have to pay shipping. The majority of review items offered qualify for free Prime shipping. Without Prime, you’ll have to pay between $4-$6 for shipping on each item. You can sign up for a Free 30-day Prime trial but remember to cancel before the trial is up or you will be charged the full membership price ($99) or you can opt for monthly payments of $10.99.

Stay alert about negative reviews that are published about your business. Automated email notification helps increase your respond time to customer complaints, so you are in a better position to resolve product issues.

Hi,I agree with you,because I am a seller on amazon,I do not want to spent more money to get review like you say,my items are all in high quality,but,no review no orders,especially good review.I hope all reviewers review honestly,but…………..

Posted a bad review once and the company offered me 20% back, but only if I removed the review, no mention of fixing the issue lol. I contacted Amazon to say they had tried to bribe me and Amazon didnt want to know. A few days after their 20% offer they phoned me at home, I hadnt given them my number and saw no reason for them to have it, guy was really creepy and kept asking what I did want for removing the review, at the end he got racist and hung up. I sent a recording of the phonecall to Amazon and once again, they didnt want to know.

Getting free products in exchange for reviews is very tempting. But be aware that these sites were created for the benefit of the sellers and not the customers. These sellers are giving you free or deeply-discounted product and EXPECT a four or five-star review. This is a form of “review manipulation and can get your account banned from Amazon and all the reviews deleted, including the reviews that were rightfully purchased before joining the review clubs. Regardless of what these review clubs say, all rules MUST comply with Amazon’s Terms of Services (ToS). You can not get any monetary feedback in any way, not by reselling or blogging for profit. Too many reviewers have had their accounts terminated for violating Amazon’s ToS and then try to find out why and are not told by Amazon. Amazon is cracking down on these reviews and it’s the reviewers who get hit first before the sites are shut down. So join these with caution.

Now, the companies you have listed gives out free products in return for a review so you can help them market their brand. These products you are reviewing is already in stores so all the companies need from you is a review.

Vipon offers a variety of products for 50% to 100% off and is also one of the oldest review sites. They were previously known as AMZ Review Trader. It is free to join and a great option if you want to test several products at once.

On behalf of Giveaway Service Team, I wish to thank you for writing such a positive comment about us. I would also like to point out that the discounted price on our website must not exceed $2. This means authors review products they got for free or at a highly discounted price.

Hi Tristan. Great information! I just wanted to underscore a sentence you wrote above regarding receiving payment post-review (I work in an industry where the payment based upon success of the product is frowned upon/illegal/immoral as well). As you point out, this is so important: “It’s payment for review (a gray area, or flat out forbidding), and open for being taken advantage of by the person requesting the review.” Again, great article and advice within the comment section. BTW, No, Tristan did not pay me for this comment!

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.

What I do care about re:reviews is that while you may be as good as gold, there is an unfortunate connotation that if someone gets something for free that there might be a tendency to review less harshly. When it’s your money on the line you get more annoyed if something isn’t up to snuff. That’s a tendency.

Do you think this is okay for me to say? I don’t want to blow my first shot at a review, but I don’t want to commit to misleading anyone either. Fortunately, the product has a bunch of good reviews as of now, and it’s inexpensive. So for the price, I’m sure there will be redeeming qualities. But still….

True. Being able to contact a Seller directly without having bought from them first—or they having reached out to you to review—makes it much more difficult. For larger name brands that have websites, a simple Google search might suffice. But what about the smaller Sellers? I don’t have an answer there. At one time I used to see a “Contact Seller” button on some product detail pages. I’m not seeing that anymore.

You won’t find a selection of products by going to their site, but rather a landing page that’s only used for registering a new account. They are a bit more strict in their process for giving out discounts.

The Vanguard VIP Product Tester program is looking for photographers to give honest, unbiased feedback and share reviews for their binoculars and spotting scopes, tripods, camera bags, riflescopes and outdoor packs. Available for product testers in USA.

I have bought a computer it is great no problems very fast. Delivered when it was suppose to be very please my account is Bernice wiley and husband James Larry poole live in alto. Ga Thinks amazon is great oh yes and stand behind their products

We can all agree these 3 tactics aren’t as easy to implement, nor as effective as the previously incentivized reviews. But one thing is guaranteed: everyone in this business will be positively affected.

Trust Review Network has some enticing offers on their homepage. You can buy valuable items like unlocked smartphones, laptops, and mini espresso machines for pennies on the dollar. In regards to the smartphones, the normal retail price is $179.99 and they can be purchased for $0.99.

The websites are breaking Amazon’s TOS and that is why reviewers and sellers are getting their accounts banned. Every day more accounts are wiped. You can find proof of this on the forums and you can look down the list of top reviewers and look where it says number of reviews, it will show a zero when they first get wiped and then a few days later the whole account is gone. In particular, here is one that was wiped last night, as an example, look at top reviewer number 117. Next to it, it says “reviews 0.” There were of course a lot more accounts wiped last night but that is one of the top reviewers I remember off the top of my head. Also, in those removed last night were admins of the facebook review groups. What does that tell you? AMZRT is one that gets tons of reviewers deleted and banned, too. Tomoson, as well. It’s been proven.

I just read through the squidoo article. Now that I think of it… I did do a survey on BzzAgent that asked me about my child playing with Transformers but I didn’t qualify because he’s a one year old. I also did 2 surveys on Smiley360 one of which asked if I had a dog and I don’t so I didn’t qualify so I think that was the Greenies test product and the other one at the end said I qualified to test Oxyclean 2in1 Stain Fighter. I think I’m starting to understand how these panels work! I’ll just continue to fill out my surveys!

Barbara, I just published a post with a list of 40 websites where you can get Amazon products for free (or highly discounted) in exchange for leaving revives on Amazon. Here is the link: http://moneypantry.com/amazon-review-sites/

Seems to me, that Amazon should be suing Fiverr right along with the other 4 that are paying for reviews (http://time.com/3817401/amazon-sues-fake-reviews/), as it seems to me what Fiverr is doing, is just as illegal.

Please get K. Ellington to stop continually harassing me for the honest 1 star review I posted on Amazon. It’s an honest review, and for a product that even the Seller has removed from purchase because of its potentially toxic ingredients! Hopefully your entire business does not run on bullying, and it is just this one person.

And closing things out, we have this Asfour Crystal Tut Anhk Amon Chair. According to the product description, the chair is made with some of the finest crystal in the world and took about 630 hours to build. When it was available (apparently someone actually bought this thing) it ran at about $140,000.

Yes, sorting by “verified purchase” is a must these days. I once bought a kitchen knife that had an obvious flaw. I was dumbfounded since it had all these glowing 5-star reviews. How can that be? Turned out NOBODY had actually purchased the knife, just me. Lesson learned.

Follow-up is key. Every time you reach out to a reviewer, add the date to your excel spreadsheet so you can keep track of when you sent your letter, who says yes, who says no, and who never replies. Follow up two weeks after your initial request with a friendly and simple message asking if they have had a chance to read through your request and that you look forward to hearing back.

Vine reviews can also be filtered out of the listing by using the “Filter by” option and only selecting “Verified purchase only”. But, sadly, the “Verified purchase only” filer does not filter the star rating. I would love for Amazon to add that feature.

2. USE a MASTER COPY OF your reviews (Mine is Called “NewEgg-000”) with ANY COMMENTS AND/OR WARNINGS AND SUCH and then just ADD your personal Review to this MASTER COPY. When you’re done with your NEW Review, then save this copy as “WHATEVER NAME-001” or “WHATEVER NAME-088” or whatever name/number you want to. This way if ANYONE has ANY QUESTIONS AND/OR COMMENTS about WHAT you said OR DIDN’T SAY you can provide them with the original Review. This saves a LOT of time AND arguments.

“review amazon products reddit -the best amazon product reviews”

you don’t get less products to review if you give bad reviews i should know I have reviewed over 1000 products adn I have left so many bad reviews. I have even reported people for plagerism. Products that don’t work I say they don’t work. I have given 1 star many times. your logic is faulty.

I am sorry that you have had bad luck with amazonreviewtrader, however I love using it! I have gotten so many good discounts/free items from the site. I have 6 things on there way right now actually to review! I have found that sometimes you do have to wait a bit longer than you would like to be able to review an item but if you request a bunch of things that you wish to review, you will most likely get chosen to do so. The ones that are completely free sometimes take a little longer than the ones you have to pay a little for. Hope this helps 🙂

Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture is the best bet for anyone looking for a regular, everyday shampoo. Alterna Haircare Caviar will keep your color-treated hair looking vibrant between touch-ups.

If the reviewer did not purchase from you, unfortunately there is no way for you to contact him privately. However, it is still possible to leave a comment on Amazon. In fact, Review Central enables you to post a comment for a specific review on Amazon immediately instead of searching and browsing for that reviewed product page on your own.

This banana slicer is actually one of the more widely known products brimming with over the top and sarcastic reviews. While its very existence is certainly bound to raise a few eyebrows, 5,296 customers gave this an average rating of 4.5 stars. Still, it’s not as if the banana slicer is not without its fair share of controversy.

Please do review the novella Before We Were Perfect by S.D. Moore. It’s a romantic dramedy based on true events that has humor and intense military, health and adult themed drama without being raunchy. The true events are discussed in the afterword. The page count on Amazon is incorrect. The book has 198 pages. The Kindle version has three formatting issues that are beyond the control of the publisher. A review is greatly appreciated.

I have used over 25 codes and all have gone through for me. You have to open the unberclub email asap to still have codes available that work and aren’t sold out. Good luck ladies. I would say 1 in 10 codes don’t work by time I get the item into my inbox.

Your link goes to some funky text-only page. The original link is—Milwaukee 2621-20 M18 Sawzall Reciprocating Saw – tool Only – – Amazon.com. Fakespot gave it an A—Fakespot | Milwaukee 2621 20 M18 Sawzall Reciprocating Saw Tool Only Fake Review Analysis, and ReviewMeta gave it a PASS—Milwaukee 2621-20 M18 Sawzall Reciprocating Saw – tool Only Amazon Review Analysis: ReviewMeta.com. You really have to wonder about mostly 5 star reviews and a few 4 star ones and no lower ratings. And the one-liners that comprise the majority. There is even a one-worder! Frankly I always look for the most critical reviews. I never read 4 and 5 star reviews. I assume most of them are fake or by naive star-struck buyers who haven’t spent any time with the tool.

This means that at any one time, there is only one product for you to order, test, and review. You can’t do two or more together and you can’t start your next review before the Snagshout team verified your review.

Power drills and makeup mirrors having no connection? Really? Do you live under a rock? As a former beauty pageant winner and current toolbelt diva, I take issue with your statement sir. In fact, my last purchase on Amazon included these items: a Rockwell Versacut power saw, 150 pink Swarovski crystals, a bass tuner, a bottle of Beautiful by Estee Lauder (my signature scent), and a set of under drive pulleys for my Cobra. People, in general, are so much more than what you see on the surface, that what you see as completely unrelated and suspect is nothing more than an average shopping trend at a retailer that offers every conceivable product ever created.

Amazon, for its part, says that it’s actively adjusting its algorithms to fight sham reviews. The company says it uses a combination of human moderation and machine learning to combat fake reviews, though declined to say how many actual human moderators are involved in the effort. It suggests that sellers who want reviews look to the Amazon Vine program, which offers products to trusted reviewers. There’s also the Amazon Early Reviewer program, a service Amazon offers sellers who need to get reviews from customers — Amazon will offer customers who purchase a product a small gift card from Amazon if they choose to review a product (whether that review is one star or five stars doesn’t matter). But both of these programs are geared toward higher-end or more established sellers; on message boards dedicated to selling on Amazon, many complain bitterly about the difficulty of getting into the program or its overall inefficacy compared to other methods.

An easy way to find the best deals on Snagshout is browsing their “Under $5” section that includes snags from every product category. While the deals are always changing, one example of getting a product for free is a premium Berberine supplement for 95%.

There’s always a chance for a scam and websites come and go. With any website, only invest a small amount of money (if any) before you buy a lot of products to sell to make sure you like working with the site and to make sure it isn’t a scam.

Scott, I am not sure about Product Testing USA. To me it doesn’t look like a real product testing site. I get the feeling it is more of a “feel out a survey for us and you may be chosen to test a product” kind of site. So, if you are looking for real product testing, stick with the sites mentioned in this post, or other legit companies. Hope that helps.

Cool, glad to hear it! As for a list of sellers or contacts… no, I don’t think there is a public list. I can see that as being something that would be quickly abused, which may have something to do with no one publicizing it. A recent comment on this post mentioned “Genesis Reviewer Program, New Trent Pilot User Program, and Gmyle Lab”. I Googled them and came up some interesting programs to review beta and production products. Googling “Genesis Reviewer Program” will yield a good amount of companies since this seems to be a universal term for this sort of thing.

The Chinese are, in this respect, reprehensible. A while ago, students at a Chinese high school rioted because the administrators had severely cracked down on cheating. Why were the students mad? Because they claimed that they would be at a severe competitive disadvantage with the other schools, where the cheating was left intact. This is the poisoned fruit that falls from the tree down to us.

Childish, my foot. If you don’t think others are jealous of those who get things for free, you have limited knowledge of human nature. No one said the program does not have problems. It’s certainly not a perfect program free of problem reviews. But look at all the non-Vine reviews at Amazon–you think they are all wonderful and honest simply because the reviewer may have paid for the item? No, they are not. Personally, I like to think most readers of reviews are intelligent enough to tell a good review from a bad one; an honest one from a fake one; and who certainly don’t simply look at how many stars the reviewer gave, as opposed to reading the review in a critical manner.

Once you’re accepted as a Vine reviewer you will want to make sure you follow the guidelines of the program. You are limited to two products at a time and you must write and post your reviews of received products before you can request additional items. Be sure to leave a review within 30 days of delivery.

Once your Amazon Profile has been updated and you are ready to start getting free products to review, be sure to check out my growing list of Amazon Review Sites for Free Products. Signing up for even just some of these will ensure you are busy with more review request emails than you ever though possible.

The gift card layering method is another frequently used tool by savvy shoppers. If you know you have to make a purchase from a certain retailer, such as Starbucks or Amazon, you can first purchase a gift card that comes with a discount. For example, at GiftCardGranny.com or Raise.com, you might be able to buy a $50 gift card for $40, which shaves an automatic $10 off your purchase. 

This is my favorite page on the web! I have it bookmarked. Thank you so much for all of this information. I have linked up your page on my site so other freebie lovers can check it out for themselves as well. I sent you an email too. Showing some love from http://enjoyfreebies.com ☺

Hi Kristin, I replied just above your comment about being careful posting your personal Amazon profile publicly. I understand why you want to do it, I would too if someone had not told me all of the horror stories about things people do with other people’s profiles. Another big problem right now is people stealing other’s reviews, copying and pasting them word for word. Good luck and stay safe, LW

Usertesting is another video reviews site, focused on reviewing different websites. They give you a free software which lets you record your mouse movements while you visit the site you are reviewing along with your spoken words. You get paid $10 for each video review you create. And when you think about hundreds of websites that are available to review, you can see the potential in making real good money with UT.

You won’t find a selection of products by going to their site, but rather a landing page that’s only used for registering a new account. They are a bit more strict in their process for giving out discounts.

Super shady, we know. And Amazon has a history of trying hard to deal with offenders and shut them down. In fact, in April, Amazon sued another round of companies that are accused of selling fraudulent reviews. But by the time those companies are caught, their clients have already made a bunch of sales, and the fraudulent reviewers will likely pop up again under new names to repeat the process.

For over 5 years, I have been approached by authors, publishers, product manufactures and distributors to read/try their products and then write a review on Amazon. It has often been a rewarding experience in that I get to try products I love, and ones that I would have never bought but seem interesting.

Personally, my favorite reviewers are the Vine reviewers that are also top reviewers. I love it when they mention other products in the same category they have used, and state what the advantages are. It’s nice to have a group of people out there that have tried 6 different brands of (vacuum, printer, slowcooker, router, dishtowel) in 2 years and can help you make a good decision or answer questions on items that are just hitting the market.

I’ve questioned if I should email and we discuss this directly, but then I decided that if I include it here, perhaps it will help someone else in the future. I have edited out the specifics about the product and the code, etc.

I used to review products which I sometimes received for free, and my wife has been on a kick lately with these websites which specialize in selling deeply discounted products in exchange for a promise to review it.

Allisha H., but reviews for e-books, apps and other electronic things don’t count towards your over all review rating or rank. It is clearly stated in AMAZON TOS. So that has nothing to do with why you were approved for things. It all depends on the item and sellers. You might request 2 things from the same seller and be approved for one and not the other. All depends on various details.

Vipon offers a variety of products for 50% to 100% off and is also one of the oldest review sites. They were previously known as AMZ Review Trader. It is free to join and a great option if you want to test several products at once.

VIP Amazon Review Club by Premier Deals Club offers many products that usually sell for $20 to $50 for only $3 to $5. You won’t get many free deals which can be a downside. When you do receive a discounted product, you only have three days to post a review. This is a quick deadline relatively speaking when compared to other Amazon review sites.

“Used to order from amazon for years but this past year has been consistently bad and I think I’m done ordering from amazon. No one else has issue that delivers to me. I paid 12 dollars for guaranteed delivery. Call customer service. They send the driver back out several hours later. DRIVER DOES THE SAME THING. they have my number and address, I tell them to call if have any issues. Nothing. Receive notification for fail delivery attempt. Cancel my order because I’ve had enough”
