“how to sample amazon products for review +how to get free products to review on amazon”

Hi, Megan It is reallly useful to read your article . But I have a question . As you said ,Be prepared to offer your product for free in exchange for a revieBut as far as I know , it is not allowed as it is agaist Amazon policy . Also if he does not pay the bill , will amazon allow top reviewer to make a review ? Waiting for your fast reply . Best regards 

I am so tired of reading reviews from people that rcv the prodcuts for a discount/free – so many of them are obviously paid/fake since the reviewers clearly have never used the product. I immediately downvote any review where I see a disclaimer about a person receiving the product at a discount/free. I don’t care about the various programs that amazon runs…VINE or otherwise. Rarely do I see a person give less than a 3star rating on a ‘discount/free’ product. Amazon should create two rating systems: a verified buyer rating and a ‘shill rating’.

Just wanted to say really thanks for putting this blog together, I came here many months back and have since singed up to really great sites based on the description given of various sites. So thanks 🙂

Please can u suggest some websites for Indian users.. i found ur blog useful! but mostly the products are for US or other western countries. Please tell me genuine product testing websites for us. I live in India.

Promotional Reviews – In order to preserve the integrity of Customer Reviews, we do not permit artists, authors, developers, manufacturers, publishers, sellers or vendors to write Customer Reviews for their own products or services, to post negative reviews on competing products or services, or to vote on the helpfulness of reviews. For the same reason, family members or close friends of the person, group, or company selling onAmazon may not write Customer Reviews for those particular items.

I stumbled across your page and tried out a couple pages. I’m crossing my fingers that some pan out since the first couple I could hardly qualify for a survey. Thanks so much for sharing. Your page is awesome.

Also, they asked me to check some of the existing reviews, and to click that one helped me. They suggested the video review that was included, but said I could choose any one that I liked. I did click and choose to say the video review helped me, because it’s a solid review and it did a great job of showcasing the product features. But the whole thing just seemed different than what I expected.

With Survey Panels, you get paid to take surveys, do product testing, join paid focus groups, and joining online communities. Some surveys you’ll qualify for and some you’ll not because it depends on what demographic the company is looking for.

New review site. It’s pretty simple, offers are through email but you actually have a shot at them. Excepted me after 2 days on my 4th review. Emails are completely unpredictable I try to check often. All free except 1 was $1. Product Frenzie is the address just add the rest since it won’t let me post urls.

In my opinion they’re not requiring it, just strongly suggesting what they’d like. I actually had to deal with a seller yesterday who emailed me about a previous review that they claimed was hurting sales. I had given an item 3 stars and they wanted me to change it to four or more.

Wanted to let you know. I have about 70 reviews on Amazon currently, and as a writer I feel they are well written and thought out. I stumbled across your blog over the weekend, and following your advice I rewrote a few of them, and I completed a profile including a photo. I had never added one bit of personal information before reading your blog.

I have been look for sometime now , to do this kind of stuff to do, I have nothing else to do ,other than time , it would help me out besides give me something to do that’s important , to ppl an this is ,can you tell where to go or what web site thanks Merry Christmas

In order to be able to do so, you need to know some rules. For instance, what influences users’ decision to choose a certain seller on Amazon? No, it’s not advertisement. At least, not the commercial one. The users assess the credibility of the seller and quality of the product by the reviews of buyers. If a seller is popular, it means that they have best reviews on Amazon and social media, and people trust them enough to make a purchase.

4. How to get a review. Click on each reviewer to get details on the person. Note that this step may require some sleuthing skills. In some cases the reviewer will share their contact information, in other cases they will share their name and business, and in some cases they reveal squat. I have found about 50 percent of the time I can find a way to contact the person in under a minute—often via e-mail, other times via a Facebook page or Twitter.

“amazon product review program -the best amazon product reviews”

Loot Hoot has offers for every Amazon marketplace, not just the U.S. and Canada. That being said, it can be difficult at times for American shoppers as many items are listed with foreign currencies and even having shipping prices already included. You can filter by country to make searching easier.

Books definitely have fake reviews. I know, because I’m the assistant to an author, and it is ridiculously difficult to get real reviews. So when you see a LOT of them, you can pretty much bet the majority are fake. Fan letters can flood in via email, but just try and get those very same fans to post reviews on Amazon. They just can’t be bothered. (It would be great if Amazon offered discounts or something to incentivize real reviewers.)

If you do decide to sign up for more than just one or two sites, then I’d suggest you register a new email address just Amazon review sites. That way you can keep everything in one place and make it easier and faster for you to check for new opportunities, instead of having to weed through tons of other personal emails to find emails from review sites.

Your suspicions are not without warrant. It’s a fact that these “incentivized” reviewers are much more likely to rate something 5-stars than anyone else: http://reviewmeta.com/blog/analysis-of-7-million-amazon-reviews-customers-who-receive-free-or-discounted-item-much-more-likely-to-write-positive-review/

Hi Boris,No, it’s not the same. In the VINE program Amazon sends advanced product samples (before the product actually becomes available for sale on their site) to it’s top reviewrs. The reviews they leave are not counted as “verified purchases”, and thus they do not artificially inflate the product’s sales data, like your suggested method will. Many new merchants are using coupon codes to give away products for review, and most are getting away with it at the moment. It’s a big risk in my opinion, as it’s only a matter of time before Amazon says, “enough is enough”, and then clamps down on the practice (and possibly penalizes merchants who have done it in the past too). If you are planning on building a solid, long term sustainable business on Amazon, I’d advise against engaging in any practices that are not clearly acceptable. Stay healthy and stay out of the grey zone my friend! It’s not worth the risks! 🙂  

Yes, you should get a Prime account, especially if you plan on receiving products from companies via the Amazon ordering system and don’t want to pay for shipping. You can sign up here: http://www.amazon.com/Amazon-Prime-One-Year-Membership/dp/B00DBYBNEE

We Amazon sellers have all been through the end of incentivized reviews together and shared our thoughts, worries and experiences during this change which happened back in October 2016. I have already shared some of my thoughts on the matter, and been open about the fact that change is good, and that we should embrace the opportunity this brings to business owners. 

Also before I go, if you ever come across a survey panel and curious if it’s legitimate or not, go to SurveyPolice.com and there you’ll find people voicing their opinions about different survey panels they have joined.

Thank you for such valuable information, Lou! I’m commenting on your reply regarding ProductTestingUSA.com being a scam. It would be nice to note in the main article if possible, since not everyone will read all the comments.

Over the past 3 years, I have signed up for dozens of these product testing programs listed below, receiving well over a hundred products for free. Furthermore, I have scoured the web looking for secret VIP product tester lists for companies and brands. And, because we send thousands of people to these sites each month, some of these companies asked us to help launch them by including them on this list.

Do you enjoy watching tv and movies?  e-Poll is a great one for you to give your opinions about tv shows, movies, and commercials.  They’ll send them to you for you to watch and you’ll get paid for your thoughts. 💰 Pays by PayPal, Gift Cards, e-Vouchers

I just got OB tampons through them get something I can’t use now since i had surgery to fix some women issues. I have been quite a bit from crowdtap lately I am going to be getting some shampoo and conditioners and hair color here soon.

In the list below you will find only the companies that I have either used myself (some for a few years!) or personally vetted via email or phone. Most noteworthy is that many if not all require you to sign up with an email (sometimes a phone number as well) and also ask for your public Amazon Profile URL or blog address. While many work with ebay Sellers and Amazon Sellers to get full products and product samples out to Reviewers and influencers, some are in-house product testing programs, or ‘super user programs’ that are run by a company to promote only their brand.

wow, louida, you have a nice picture in the meet me. and the other small one under hello is a good one too. its nice to meet you. you are a really nice person. you deserve to be thanked for all of your help. you are so kind.

One thing I do, is try to put myself in a reviewers shoes, and think back to myself and what mattered to me. Book reviews may not be quite the same as a product review, but an example I remember is when I discovered the book “Wool,” by Hugh Howey.

Companies first ask if I have a Prime account—which means I can get free shipping. When I say yes and agree to review their product, I receive a coupon code for 100% off the price. I order the item as I normally do, use the code and get it 2 days later.

I got an invite a while back when it was new, but didn’t know that I could get free stuff to review. Any ideas on how to re-activate said invite? I don’t seem to have the email, although I could dig deeper.

Experienced online shoppers know what to look for. They’ll typically read the most positive reviews first (to see if the product does what they want), followed by the worst. They know that a decent percentage of bad reviews on otherwise good products aren’t necessarily related to the product itself.

I would love to be a reviewer. I have been a member of Amazon since 2003. Love the fact that they have so much to offer. Everything from Lawn mower parts to computers, books, music etc. I have never been disappointed in an Amazon product.

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.

Lastly, you can always sign up for reviewer programs such as ILoveToReview.com (which is currently only U.S. based, and which I am a member.) BUT! Be very careful about signing up for these programs. Not all of them are legit, and some use shady tactics to coerce reviewers into only leaving 4-5 star reviews, or giving you bad advice that can actually have your reviews pulled down by Amazon, or worse. Do your research!

We use these various revenue streams not only to support our staff, but also to purchase products for review, to outfit our offices with the best tools and equipment for testing – including the construction of our new 5,000-square-foot Purch Lab – and to continue to expand the number of products and services we rank and review.

One of the more famous Amazon products to receive an onslaught of hilarious reviews is this gallon of Tuscan Whole Milk. In fact, the initial spate of sarcastic reviews that accompanied this product listing became so well-known that it even became the topic of a 2006 New York Times article.

Distributed enterprises are finding that legacy WAN technologies are creating pain points in the digital era, prompting the need for a new WAN paradigm. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) has emerged as an architecture that improves visibility and optimization among common WAN connectivity protocols, while promising reduced costs, improved performance, and enhanced security and control over … Continue Reading…

Amy, for shoes, companies like Nike do have product testing, but they send you all the time. And some require you send it back after a few weeks of testing. I found 6 of them that include Nike and Reebok. Here is the link to my post: http://moneypantry.com/get-free-shoes/

“amazon product review tips +get free products for amazon reviews”

And lastly, we couldn’t find a company website for Rxvoit. While the lack of a Web presence isn’t in itself an indication of a shady manufacturer or a signal to look out for fake reviews, it is worth noting. When your only point of contact for a company is through Amazon, you have no way of accessing customer service directly. This means warranty claims are tough to redeem. It also means it’s tougher for a significant number of people to “just happen” to stumble across a product and decide to purchase it, which makes a sudden spurt of reviews very unlikely.

I would love to be a reviewer. I have been a member of Amazon since 2003. Love the fact that they have so much to offer. Everything from Lawn mower parts to computers, books, music etc. I have never been disappointed in an Amazon product.

There are a few tips you should be aware of when you go on your product review quest to make sure you get the most bang from both a SEO and PR perspective. Chances are you will be able to discuss how you want your links to look in the review. If you get the opportunity to specify your links and link text then keep these tips in mind:

They also told me anyone who owns it should upgraded immediately or suffer reduced speeds. I’m very angry with them. This was a highly rated modem last May. And, they wonder why they have such a bad reputation?!?!?

I know you’ve got a lot of comments, but had no idea Bzzagent was still around, so I just signed back up. Another good one for people to try, and it works quickly, is Mintvine.com. I earned money fast! Thanks for the great tips and sites to earn cash. Hugs…RO

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.”

The BEST site I have used for taking surveys and being paid for the surveys is called: oneopinion.com. Again, you need 25000 credits to cash out into paypal. Its VERY EASY to get them. Ive already cashed out for OVER $500.00 in 2 1/2months. They DONT charge a fee, wen you cash out, your money IMMEDIATELY goes into your paypal account, and at times, they send you products to test and do a survey on. I JUST received an additional 30.00 for a dog treat survey, on top of the 2500 points for the original survey. So, oneopinion.com is a site I would DEFINITELY recommend

An Amazon spokesperson tells us that reviews that were received prior to the policy change are only being retroactively removed if they are excessive, and don’t comply with prior policy. That means you’ll still see a ton of these seemingly biased reviews live on Amazon, unfortunately. The retailer also says that if it finds anyone is attempting to manipulate reviews by tying reviews to discounted products, it will take action against them, starting today.

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.

Follow-up 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.

You could copy/paste the product description and it would let you know the % possibility that the product was shilled/confirm that it has been shilled? Hell, what if it could strip the shill reviews and re-score the product? Maybe all this could popup in a little browser plugin?

Thank you for sharing these many great opinions. Wanted to share some of my story. I started my e-business 6 months ago, I have my own e-commerce website KelementStore.com, as well as Amazon marketplace store, tried many marketing strategies to promote my own website, such as Google AdWords, social media, referral program, only to realize only Amazon can move some quantity, even when I didn’t do any marketing on Amazon (not eligible as a new Amazon seller). I’m very grateful for the initial 5 star reviews I got, those genuine words quickly brought in sales. Then when the sales grow, bad customers come up, they didn’t like the product or there were misunderstanding, and these people refuse to communicate, just threw you bad reviews. I’ve consulted Amazon customer service on how to deal with such unfair situation, Amazon only removed a couple that violates their review/feedback guideline. Just like we would meet mean people in real life, they exist on the Internet too. I agree with Megan that the best thing to do in such situation is to get more positive reviews to bury the bad ones, but once there’s a bad one, your sales drop, and you seemed to have to search for paid reviews, but will also worry about being caught by Amazon. It’s a painful dilemma, I’m still struggling on the decisions and looking for good reviewers. I become a more active and positive reviewer now, since I know how hard and important it is to maintain a good reputation. Hope the same for every other sellers.

“free products for amazon reviews uk -amazon product review facebook”

Hi, I’m a reviewer on amazon as well and I just wanted to offer some advice to help some newer reviewer. If you do video demos of the product that you buy or receive for reviews and include pictures, sellers would be more incline to select you or reach out to you to review their product. Also breaking up your review in paragraphs or doing a pros and cons is great, and what I do is do a summery paragraph at the end and include in that other possible uses in such.

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.

I had already sent the reply I copied here, and I heard back from them asking me to proceed and providing the discount code. However, the code drops the cost to $2.99. Is that normal? Should I proceed? Honestly, I like the look of the product and it’s something I wouldn’t mind having.

My son said he loves the game, but the software is awful. It took us hours to get around the install problems and then we found out the key code had already been used! Based on the reviews and forum comments, I’m not even bothering with EA to try and resolve this issue. Our best guess is that someone has figured out their key algorithm and the codes are being activated illegally. So, even though we bought a brand new game, the verification key is useless and my son can only play a limited portion of the game.

I would love a vine invitation. I no punches and I don’t sugarcoat anything. if I like it ill say everything about it that I like and if I don’t like something the same thing. I don’t like getting ahold of bead products not just on amazon but ebay samsclub and Walmart,com. I love to help people make informed decisions on products but you must remember that everyone has their own likes and dislikes plus I like free stuff. especially disc golf stuff and boaed games like mahjong.

I didn’t think that BzzAgent had “points” either. Today I was taking a few short surveys (to update my profile). At the end of each one I was rewarded between 3-5 points. I quickly realised that BzzAgent has partnered with MyPoints so I joined that and the points I receive and redeem with BzzAgent go into there within 48 hours. MyPoints has their own thing going on but the points I get from BzzAgent have been going in there.

Tracy, there is no telling when they will get back to you. I’d imagine it all depends on how busy they are and whether or not they have an upcoming test. I would wait a few weeks and then try to contact them. Good luck.

It is hard to say without knowing their techniques. The problem with this task is that there is often no hard proof that the detection is actually correct unless the author of the actual fake reviews (not made up fake reviews) from a review hosting site confirms it. Of course, it is easier if the company actually hosts reviews (e.g., Amazon or Yelp) because they can analyze the public information that the general public can see and also (more importantly) their internal data which tracks all the activities after a person comes to the website. A lot of unusual behaviors can be detected. Unfortunately, such data is not available to people outside the site.

When it comes to getting paid for reviewing websites, it is important to put honestly ahead of everything else. After all, your reviews will play a big rule in many people’s decisions in buying a product or service.

These changes will apply to all product categories other than books, as Amazon has always allowed advance copies of books to be distributed, the retailer notes. Amazon also says it has other ideas about making Vine more useful in the future, but didn’t go into detail.

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.

1.      Provide a great consumer experience. The majority of negative reviews involve consumers feeling misled about a product. Be honest about what you’re selling and provide as much accurate, precise information about your product as possible to avoid any confusion or false expectations.

For the last 3 to 4 years I have been a Professional NewEgg “EggXpert” Product Reviewer. I got this gig by honestly posting reviews AND comments about any product that I either owned or had an opportunity to use and/or try. After a while NewEgg Contacted me and said that they had gotten so many “GOOD” comments about both my reviews and/or comments that they’d like me to become part of the team. I then asked them what was involved and they told me ALL they wanted someone who would post HONEST reviews about a product. To this I said YES, sign me up.

Hi there. I love your website, thanks! Anyway just wanted to let you know that some of your links aren’t working properly. For instance when I click on #3 – Pinecone Research, I’m directed to a site called, ‘Product Report Card.com’. That’s not the first time that’s happened to me while using the links you provide on your site. I hope this information is helpful to you!

As the Amazon complaint explains, the fake reviewers ran their scheme through a work-for-site site called Fiverr. They allegedly used hundreds of fake Amazon account names and IP addresses in order to pepper the site with fake reviews. The text of the reviews are typically supplied by the people who hired them.

Due to Amazon’s latest policy change regarding product reviews, many of these sites have been forced to change direction. Some still continue to operate but under different rules, and some are completely halting their program. I will do my best to keep up and update this page. Please let us know in the comments if you do find changes on any of these sites.

I would say, mostly there are restricted to the U.S. consumers. That said it wouldn’t hurt to contact each site or at least check out their FAQ section to see if they accept members from other parts of the world.

“amazon products for review get paid to review products on amazon”

Here the site more or less serves as a placeholder for you to indicate your intent to review products. Once an opportunity arise, the website will contact appropriate members for potential review work.

I love tomoson!!! Best one of all these. Gives me so many products a month I usually have abt four items at a time to review and it’s so easy!!! Amazon review trader has been slow they were good when I first signed up one of the very firsts to get a product from and got a few more however now I keep getting deals without being prime eligible so then I end up having to pay for shipping when the product is free which is ridiculous however I can not figure out how to know if it’s prime eligible or not before I Accept the promo. And then I try and contact the sellers and no response. This is an issue with abt four of my promos right now and I can’t seem to get and answer so I’m not really a big fan of them anymore. I am completely satisfied with tomoson tho :). Can’t wait for more updates if you have any.

Using these sites and being a member of these clubs and groups is the single most easiest way to get you amazon account banned and all of your reviews wiped. There’s an enormous amount of great info on the amazon forums that will prove this to be true. Paying for these items is not a deal at all. The sellers are making money off of you. It costs literally pennies to produce the cheap items and the seller us making MORE profit off of the people in these review groups than they would by legitimately selling the items – no one would buy them! Also, 99% of the group admins on these Facebook groups and ALL of the sites make a profit off of YOU because they sell the service of providing reviews to the sellers. Which is why the accounts get banned and the sellers get banned… it’s paid reviews and that is against amazons TOS. Also, the rules of the groups and clubs violate the TOS in other ways such as saying if you cannot leave a 4 or 5 star review then contact the seller first.. no, that’s not how it’s supposed to work and that very thing is against the TOS. You leave the coorect review no matter if it is 1 star or 5 star. Telling you to contact them first is MANIPULATION. Guess what they say when you contact them? They tell you to not review the item. Or they will drag it out and waste time stalling the bad review by offering to send you a replacement product. Guess what? The replacement is also a piece of junk. So when you contact them about the junk replacement, guess what they say? They tell you to just not review it and make up excuses about how it must be a bad batch of products or amazon damaged the items during shipping. It’s a lie and it’s just to get you to take the seller’s side, pity them, etc. The group and site owners/admins will also go along with these lies and manipulation. Because they want to keep getting paid, keep getting free products, and keep earning money off of all of the members who purchase these items using their referral links. They try to act like the seller is providing you with a great opportunity or deal, but it’s not a deal or great opportunity at all! It only helps the seller and the sellers only care about themselves. They try to make you think the sellers are saints and such good people to be offering these free and discounted items when the truth is the dollar or so that you lay for the item is more than the item is even worth and it is a dollar that the seller would not have made without suckering you into reviewing their cheap junk. So, they make money off of you, plus they get positive reviews on their products to try and convince other shoppers to buy it.. they’re using you to lie for them and say the item is wonderful and scam someone else out of money. These groups and sites DO NOT help shoppers. Most shoppers could care less about your reviews and will automatically bypass any review of free stuff because they know how these groups and sites work. Just read the amazon forums like I said earlier. The forums are amazon customers. The customers know all about these groups and all about the fake reviews and they discuss it heavily. The only person being fooled by all this is the person who pays the dollar and writes the review.

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.

Before the ban on incentivized reviews, Amazon had tolerated reviews that were given in exchange for a free or discounted product — as long as the reviewers were upfront about that. But that system was gamed, according to a report earlier this year from Consumerist. Some reviewers posted hundreds of reviews in just a few weeks, which casts some doubt as to whether they were able to legitimately try out the products. 

As mentioned, Elite Deals Club needs serious work. I had great success the first few weeks, until that fateful day I received the ‘code not found’. Got one reply to the email I sent, a standard ‘make sure you’re doing everything right’ reply that didn’t even address this particular issue. Several months later, I am still unable to access anything. The site does a constant redirect to login. Soon as you login and try to view the deals it refreshes and takes you right back to login. If you check their Facebook page you will find hundreds of complaints about this issue, but no ones ever got it working again. I had recommended this site to several friends, who experienced the same. Interestingly enough, I unsubscribed from the daily emails several times, but still receive them occasionally.

And incidentally, Amazon specifically tells us not to talk about shipping and purchase process in reviews in their guidelines so that isn’t a flaw of the free-item/Vine review system as is mentioned here. They want that information given in product/seller feedback. Check their review guidelines page about what reviews are rejected. No one is supposed to include that information.

Just like our name suggests, we review products. For over 14 years, we’ve been one of the largest and most comprehensive product review sites on the web, with tens of thousands of reviews and rankings in categories that include services, software, electronics, business, computers, home appliances and more.

Membership is granted to Hey, Bullseye on an invitation-only basis. We seek guests who enjoy sharing their opinions and sentiments about the products they use. Thus, Hey, Bullseye members are selected based on criteria such as how many reviews they’ve written on Target.com in the past, involvement in one of Target’s  digital communities and our current membership capacity.

There are no hard stats. Review writing is not a science. It’s all subjective, both Vine reviews and non-Vine reviews. Sure, some judge less harshly because they got the items for free, just as some judge more harshly because they want to prove their opinion was not bought.

If anyone is looking for a group to get amazon products for free or deeply discounted go to Reviews4Success.com and they just added a bunch of new products. They are a legit company and if you are a seller you can use them for product promotion.

I just started researching this to try out, I have never done this before. My question is I already have an Amazon prime account. Does this mean I have to use the email attached to prime account, or can I start a new email, like you suggested to have a dedicated email, for this review endeavor? Please let me know how I should do this. I rather open up a new email account so it’s separate from the one I use for my kids school, doctors, and personal things. Thank you in advance for your help.

2. Find potential reviewers. This is way easier than you may think. Simply go to your existing product page for your own product on Amazon. Then scroll to the section that says “Customer Also Bought Items By” and the section “Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed.” These sections lists the competing products that customers view and buy when they consider your product. This is a goldmine. You are only one step away from targeting the best reviewers you could ever have–the people reviewing your competitor’s offering.

Companies first ask if I have a Prime account—which means I can get free shipping. When I say yes and agree to review their product, I receive a coupon code for 100% off the price. I order the item as I normally do, use the code and get it 2 days later.

Why are you so against people reviewing items on Amazon? I think it’s great that a business will give away freebies in order for you to give a review. They can’t force you to change it. It’s kind of like walking by Weltzel Pretzel and getting free samples.

I’m curious about the news that Amazon is suing over 1,000 individuals for posting fake reviews. Personally, I know I haven’t done anything wrong or illegal, but immediately thought about your blog and wondered your take on the whole thing. I’ll be honest, I don’t fully understand all the ins and outs of the lawsuit. I do believe the service you provide is great and informative. Anyone who follows your guidelines shouldn’t have anything to fear at all, but I am interested in anything you might have to say about the lawsuit.

Apologize for your mistakes, clarify product information, and thank customers for taking the time to leave feedback. You don’t need to respond to every review, but definitely take the time to show that you care.

Another great sites where you get paid for writing reviews. Epinions is a shopping.com company where members can earn money by writing useful reviews about different products. there is no limit to how many reviews you can write. The more reviews you write, the more money you make. The first 10 reviews that you write, you $10, 20 to 30 reviews earn you $20, writing 30-39 reviews earn you $30, and so on. Every time you write a review you receive what are called “Eroyalties credits”, which are redeemable in US dollars. When you accumulated $10 in your account, you can request to be paid, which will be paid to you by check.

I’ve notice with Survey Panels that women with children get more opportunities to test products. This may be the reason why you don’t get as many. There is no way to say how many products you’ll be able to test each month with companies, it all depends on your demographic. Make sure to fill out any screeners a survey panel sends you for a better chance to get into product testing.

Just thought in case there are some honest folks around this might be useful to know. As someone that broke into the Top 100 on the Amazon Review rankings I stopped reviewing on Amazon (unless I actually buy the item) as of that change of policy.

Over the past 3 years, I have signed up for dozens of these product testing programs listed below, receiving well over a hundred products for free. Furthermore, I have scoured the web looking for secret VIP product tester lists for companies and brands. And, because we send thousands of people to these sites each month, some of these companies asked us to help launch them by including them on this list.

We say: Toluna is pretty much the best site out there when it comes to getting free products and rewards for your views. You simply sign up for a free account (click here), then you can choose to start testing products or select various polls to answer.

I wish Amazon would just use some common sense and only allow reviews from verified purchasers. It wouldn’t solve everything but it would be much better than wading through all these phony reviews with that same stupid disclaimer at the end of their review.

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.

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.

CR helped to mobilize support in Congress to create the CFPB, an independent agency responsible for overseeing the financial industry with powers to police abusive practices and to enact new consumer protections.

What you are asking for is SEO related. You can always ask people to write a review, but I would suggest that if you are looking for an increase in traffic you buy ads with search engines, or improve your SEO and content strategy. I do not have any recommendations for SEO experts.

There’s one review in particular that stands out to me. It wasn’t a Vine member who wrote it, so it may not be relevant, but it’s the first review for a popular product that has thousands of reviews for it. This review was entertaining to read and has received hundreds of “Yes” votes saying it was helpful. The problem I have with it is that I own the product, and while the review was entertaining, it was very inaccurate. In this particular case, I don’t think it’s merely a matter of the reviewer having a different opinion, because many things written are factually inaccurate, and it was important information. And yet, the review is #1 out of thousands of others on Amazon.

Milena’s a Canadian writer who lives in San Francisco. She’s passionate about writers, books, and getting good ideas off the ground. Her work has appeared in Marie Claire and The Globe and Mail, amongst others. When not writing or editing, you can find her traveling around Europe or exploring the Bay Area.

Product testing is when you try out a product for a company and you give them your honest opinion of that product through a survey, quiz, or discussion questions. Most of the time this happens online but sometimes you may be asked to do a product testing in person.

Yes it took awhile for me to get anything too Remi. The key is to keep completing their surveys and once you do start getting products to review make sure to do the different task they would like you to do. Do that, you’ll be bombarded with a bunch of great products!

No. Writing a negative review will not impact a Voice’s reviewer ranking. A reviewer’s ranking is determined by the number of helpful votes from other customers. Customers tend to value substantive, informative, detailed and objective reviews, regardless of whether the review is positive, negative, or neutral.

One thing I do, is try to put myself in a reviewers shoes, and think back to myself and what mattered to me. Book reviews may not be quite the same as a product review, but an example I remember is when I discovered the book “Wool,” by Hugh Howey.

Another key indicator that a series of product reviews is fake is that the “Customers who bought this also bought the following items” section is littered with products that have no conceivable connection at all to the reviewed product. E.g. if you see that customers who purchase a particular brand of power drill also happen to purchase a particular pedicure kit or makeup mirror, that’s highly suspect.

EtekCitizen likes to give away their products free. The only catch is that all products being featured are just from one particular brand: EtekCitizen. Due to this limitation, I would often browse the products first at Amazon, instead of their site. If there is any item from them that catches my attention, I would then go back to EtekCitizen for a review opportunity.

Such a cool article here. I am always looking forward this author and other authors on Wirecutter. I think the authors are far more intelligent than other authors you find elsewhere. Many of them are alos very funny. Sometimes I laugh and laugh and laugh.

It is my understanding that companies offer their items in exchange for reviews because the more reviews you have – good or bad – the higher your product will appear in Amazon search results and this can be important if you really want to get your items in front of shoppers. For instance, I just did a search for “pink shoes” and received 152,080 results. Most people aren’t going take the time to scan all of those results, so appearing on the first few pages will help the company sell more product.

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/

These discount codes will often be for at least 50% off. As Amazon still wants to maintain a high level of credibility for the customer reviews, sites don’t offer as many free products as they did in the past.

Our demographic isn’t the same, but it wouldnt hurt to ask: How long after signing up did you start noticing product testing surveys and such? I’m pretty consistant with filling out as many surveys as possible!

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.

The point of the Vine program – which vendors pay to be included in – is to get reviews when something comes out, rather than waiting for them to aggregate organically. I can understand why some vendors want to get their products noticed like that.

Within seconds after signing up, your FeedbackFive account goes to work and automatically solicits feedback from customers. Based on your preferences, you can tell FeedbackFive how often and for which products to solicit Amazon feedback. Set it once, and watch the feedback roll in.

And, each site might only offer so many discounts per item. If the item is listed on more than one site, you can still get the free product if all the discounts have been claimed at the first review site.

Hey, Bullseye reviews will appear on the relevant product detail page on Target.com along with other guest reviews. Hey, Bullseye reviews are distinguished from others with a special label. All reviews are moderated to ensure compliance with Review Writing Guidelines.

“amazon product review website |how to receive free products from amazon for review”

First, as a buyer I see “verified” reviews as slightly more legitimate than non-verified reviews. Others may see them as the only review they trust, while some buyers may not care. If it is important to you, then here is how you can go about it.

As of May 6, users’ product reviews will be displayed on all eligible listings. A listing is reviewable if it is adopted to a product or is a multi-quantity listing. Not all listings are eligible. Sellers are not required to take any action. For more information please read eBay’s product review guidelines.

Avoid reviewing group promotional items under the group affiliate link they’re using. If you review a promo under a group affiliate link, it’s too easy to get tangled into a seller relationship block or wipe.

On Google Maps, you can write reviews for places you’ve visited. You can also leave info about a place, like if it’s quiet, lively, or romantic. These reviews and opinions are voluntary. We don’t pay reviewers for adding them to Google Maps.

The Bad: EA put too much hype out there about it for way too long. They had everyone drooling over this games possibilities for YEARS. Talking like if gamers played this game every day, all day, it would take almost 80 years for them to explore all the games possible stars in the galaxy. And of course when the makers of Sims say something like that, it’s very believable and appealing. But the game just didn’t live up to the hype.

One of the reasons why Amazon is such a popular online destination is that many products are accompanied by hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of product reviews from everyday consumers who can speak with first-hand authority to the merits of whatever item is being considered. As a result, consumers are able to make more informed shopping decisions and steer clear of items they might ultimately regret purchasing. Of course, with the Internet being what it is, Amazon’s vast library of product reviews are also filled with a good number of  sarcastic, biting, clever, and downright hilarious responses. Some even speculate that these reviews may be responsible for Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ distinctive laugh.

Both Ooi and Tommy Noonan, founder of ReviewMeta, pointed out that I was likely seeing the extreme end of the spectrum because I was looking for cheap electronic commodities, where reviews can be make or break for would-be sellers. But ultimately, this is an effect of Amazon’s crowded marketplace. Tommy Noonan says that many sellers may be forced to turn to ginning up reviews somehow. “They’re caught in a Catch-22. You have to get reviews to sell, but to get reviews you need to sell products,” says Noonan.

Snagshout is one of the most popular review sites because you can theoretically test one new product every day when you redeem a “snag.” You get a new snag every three days and can accumulate up to five snags at once. They will send you a regular newsletter to make it easier to find

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?

6. Repeat forever. This process takes two elements that scares many people away: time and money. You need to make an effort (time) and you need to send a product to a reviewer (money). Ironically, this is your biggest advantage, since your competitor is unlikely to do this, even though it’s as easy as pie! They will stay stuck with their 14 reviews, while you pile up 463 and more. If you stick with this, you will win!

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.

“amazon product reviews free |how can i review products on amazon”

I’d recommend Dollar Review Club. Free. I’ve reviewed 4,5 deals there with little issues. Happen one time that the code went expired and their customer service feedbacked to me within several hours and I got my quota back to claim another product. Better than what I experienced in other review sites where my question kept no response and I could only find it through FAQ with anger. If you are reviewer I think you can give a try. (Also found that it’s also free for seller to upload products there now…? interesting)

But the biggest problem for Amazon wasn’t just technical or user experience wise. The ReviewMeta study was a big PR hit to Amazon’s brand image: the aforementioned study was cited in many influential blogs and sites, including The Next Web, TechCrunch, USA Today, Business Insider, and Bloomberg.

> The Vine program, and similar methods of eliciting feedback, give away products for free (or sell them at a deep discount) to potential customers vetted (by Amazon in the case of the Vine program) for the helpfulness of their reviews, in exchange for an “honest 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?

Among other things, our tests gather data on features, ease of use, durability and the level of customer support provided by the manufacturer. Using a proprietary weighted system (i.e., a complicated algorithm), the data is scored and the rankings laid out, and we award the three top-ranked products with our Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards.

For pinecone research is it possible to complete just surveys without having to do any product testing? Do they notify you prior to sending you a product or do they just show up at door? And would you happen to know how one would go about cancelling their membership with this panel? Thanks in advance!

Write your message. You can say something like “Hi, my name is XXXX. I really enjoy doing product reviews for seller’s and I would be happy to provide an honest review in exchange for a free product. Here’s a link to my Amazon profile (your link goes here) and here are a few reviews I’ve recently done (include the permalink to the reviews, if you have any).”

They have many products in the Dashboard to choose from. They use a Review Leaderboard to pick top Elite Deal Club reviewers to receive Amazon Gift Cards (possible violation of Amazon Reviewer rules.) Like AMZRC above, they too have a great affiliate program that pays! Available for reviewers in USA, UK, and Canada.

Still, the Echo is more than a souped-up speaker with Siri-like smarts — it’s the connected home experience you didn’t know you wanted. It’s no longer the first Alexa gadget I’d recommend, but it’s still a fascinating product and a worthy buy if you can catch it on sale during Prime Day or Black Friday.

This is now the newest kid on the block, having just launched July 2016. They are also supporting reviewers in more countries than any other review site I know of! 12 countries! USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China

It is in Amazon’s best interest for products to have positive reviews – this builds faith in the Amazon Marketplace (makes people feel good about any potential purchase) and encourages sellers to pay for amazon shill services, (VINE) much like YELP extorts local business owners.

I’m a Vine reviewer and I take my role very seriously. There is a bias in that I won’t request products I don’t think I will have a use for, but I have no problem leaving a 1 or 2-star review if I think the product warrants it. My most popular reviews tend to be the longer ones – 600+ words – as I get into a lot of detail you won’t get from the product description. I also review a lot of my own purchases.

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.

I will check out your blog! I had Googled “test products for free” and the first thing that came up was a link to your blog about earning free money along with the article on Squidoo lol I liked that it was a real person that is testing stuff so I’m glad I commented on this!

Funny but I’ve been shopping for Bluetooth head phones recently and did order an Anker branded set for my downstairs tenant, though not the same one as you linked to on RM — guessing a newer model because it had better specs. Anyway, reason I chose it was the believable good reviews and my own past experience with that company’s peripherals such as USB chargers and power cords, all of which I found to be excellent; plus, they offered the lowest price among all the many clones. And the magnetic earphones I received really ARE superb, equal in sound quality I think to the Plantronics Backbeat Fit (which I hesitate to otherwise recommend because it seems most of those sold come DOA) and held a charge for the advertised 7 or 8 hours play time. I did leave a five star review of the Anker despite only having had the chance to test it for a day (though as thoroughly as possible, both in my own apartment paired with my iPad and downstairs with a BT tranceiver) and would even have purchased a second set but the price jumped five bucks after my review was published, D’oh!

I have only started reviewing product over the past 6 mths. About 70% of the product promo codes I enter fail. It happens when the sellers directly email me a code & also when I attempt to redeem an item from AMZThe sellers tell me that they haven’t come across this issue with other reviewers. They send me another promo code and some times it works, and other times it doesn’t. One vendor sent me 4 codes before I was finally able to successfully redeem it. This happens even if I attempt to redeem the code same day as received. And they are products I have never purchased either myself or through a different promo code.

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.

If anything is childish, it’s your comment. Anyone who thinks there are not many, many people who are jealous of those who get things for free has very limited knowledge of human nature. I didn’t say everyone was jealous. Once again, if you want to believe all Vine reviews are worthless, be my guest. It’s totally untrue, but imagine whatever you looking for bloggers, website owners, online publishers, journalists, YouTubers, Amazon reviewers (Vine), Yelpers, podcast show hosts, and other reviewers worldwide.  They fill out our easy Product Offer Form (HERE).  Then we publish their requests for reviews in our free email newsletters.

Hi Lou! I LOVE what you’re doing!!! I am so interested in becoming a product tester, with the hopes of earning money so I can help support my family. Which would you recommend I start with? The list is pretty overwhelming, so I appreciate any and all suggestions.

Once you 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.

We use these various revenue streams not only to support our staff, but also to purchase products for review, to outfit our offices with the best tools and equipment for testing – including the construction of our new 5,000-square-foot Purch Lab – and to continue to expand the number of products and services we rank and review.

I didn’t think that BzzAgent had “points” either. Today I was taking a few short surveys (to update my profile). At the end of each one I was rewarded between 3-5 points. I quickly realised that BzzAgent has partnered with MyPoints so I joined that and the points I receive and redeem with BzzAgent go into there within 48 hours. MyPoints has their own thing going on but the points I get from BzzAgent have been going in there.

Cross-Reviewing (CR) is a new innovation that allows reviewers to see each other’s reports once all reports have been submitted. It provides reviewers with a short window of time in which to discuss the reports. During this time, they are given the opportunity to provide additional information or make further recommendations to the editor based on this discussion, before they make a final decision.

For a decade, CR conducted independent testing and research to highlight the dangers of cigarettes. The Surgeon General’s Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health used CR’s work to draft its landmark report.

as a result of my experiences in the last year or two, i generally no longer trust amazon enough to purchase items sold or fulfilled by them. instead, if i need to purchase something from a smaller manufacturer that i find on amazon, i now go directly to their own website, if they have one, where i can be sure i’m getting the real thing and there is an assurance of quality and accountability.”

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.

Wow, I am sorry to hear about that, Todd. Although some may say it’s the way of capitalism, I personally don’t think that’s right, they get your product with a discount in exchange for their review, but they turn around and try to compete with you.

Shvoong is a kind of get paid to review site, where you can make money by writing reviews on written publications such as books, magazines, e-books, websites and etc. The reviews are written as brief summaries so that the readers can quickly get the information they need and move on. Shvoong earns money from the advertisement displayed through out the site, which in return for your reviews, they will share 10% of the total revenue earned from ads displayed next to your reviews. When you have $10 in your account, you can request a payment which will be paid on the 5th day of every month.

I stumbled across your page and tried out a couple pages. I’m crossing my fingers that some pan out since the first couple I could hardly qualify for a survey. Thanks so much for sharing. Your page is awesome.

I myself don’t trust any of the” honest reviews” even if they are doing a honest review. Because there are far more fake “honest” reviews out there for me to look at and be tricked by them. I don’t know if those reviews are being in the first place. It’s like I have a lot of presents boxes. Inside *some* of them have actual gifts but *most* of the boxes contain bombs. I’m not risking my life for those presents (honest reviews), therefore I’m not going to get those presents. I’m going to get one that I know has a present inside (actual verified, paid full price reviews) because then I’m sure the results are not *as* skewed.

One thing you’ll want to keep in mind is to take note that when a review gets published that you’ve replenished your stock or have a plan in mind to fulfill the orders coming from all that extra traffic. Always be ready to capitalize on publicity and satisfy customer demand. All you need is that one product review and you’re well on your way to your first sale and beyond.

The article makes no mention of clicking on the user name and seeing their review history. I clicked on a user yesterday, and she had a history of 16 reviews…all on the same day. Apparently TheWireCutter never thought of doing that. Unimpressed.

In a study of U.S. Department of Agriculture data, CR found pesticide levels in some fruits and vegetables were too high. Shortly after, one of the pesticides was banned for use on food crops commonly consumed by children.

If you want a good example of fake GOOD book reviews though, try looking at Ryan Holiday’s “Trust Me, I’m Lying.” And then read the “most helpful” (and practically sole) one-star review on the page. Hilarious.

I accidentally stumbled upon this and people who do reviews on Amazon and not part of the precious vine elite (and I never felt that way until tonight) are called liars and people with no integrity or morals. I posted a question as to why people getting discounts to review are not honest and isn’t a discount or free product from one just like taking a discount or free product from another. That was a huge mistake, and I don’t say this lightly. I was bombarded with the most vile humiliating replies. I was called names and told I was just a couponer wanting to get anything I could. Which I might say is far from the truth. I have only accepted offers or codes for items I have wanted to compare to products I am using or accepted a code for an item I truly have wanted. I know some will not always be honest as they should so they will get offers, I am not one of them. I want a product that works. I also respect others and would not want to mislead others. Yet tonight I wanted to close my Amazon account and never buy on that site again. I’ve been a prime member for years with the Amazon Fire tv box, the works of all Amazon offers.

They don’t have a large product selection, and it’s really difficult to find products for free on Dollar Deal Reviews. This is because most of the freebies are gone quickly and they don’t update their selections very frequently.

There’s one review in particular that stands out to me. It wasn’t a Vine member who wrote it, so it may not be relevant, but it’s the first review for a popular product that has thousands of reviews for it. This review was entertaining to read and has received hundreds of “Yes” votes saying it was helpful. The problem I have with it is that I own the product, and while the review was entertaining, it was very inaccurate. In this particular case, I don’t think it’s merely a matter of the reviewer having a different opinion, because many things written are factually inaccurate, and it was important information. And yet, the review is #1 out of thousands of others on Amazon.

I’ve been a Vine reviewer for a while and I agree with your concerns. The biggest one in terms of long-term use is that you’re required to post a review within thirty days (used to be ninety, I think). I update reviews months or years later as wear and tear or faults start to appear, but usually by that point a concensus has been established and helpfulness votes cast.

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

I’ve gotten things from Crowdtap and BzzAgent, and I only started about a month and a half – 2 months ago. I have received foundation from BzzAgent, an electric foot file from Crowdtap that retails for $60, and I’ve got more coming!

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.

For high-end products worth at least $50, take a look at Giveaway Service. You do need to be approved by each individual seller before you can receive the discount. They also offer a lot of free giveaways too.

So what are you, the average Amazon shopper, to do? You can avail yourself of sites like Fakespot and ReviewMeta. Both readily admit that their algorithms aren’t perfect, but they do help spotlight products with “too good to be true” reviews attached to them. You can read reviews yourself, and check for things like a ton of unverified five-star reviews — in my experience, a sure sign that something fishy is going on with a product’s review score. And you can click through and check out a reviewer’s history. If a reviewer only has a few reviews, or has hidden their review history, take their feedback with a grain of salt.

3. I doubt I will ever be asked to be a Vine Reviewer but I am enjoying reviewing several products. Tristan (and any other reviewers reading this), would please take a couple of minutes of your time to look at some of my reviews and give me constructive feedback? I am not the greatest writer and appreciate any help you would offer.

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.

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.

Over the past 3 years, I have signed up for dozens of these product testing programs listed below, receiving well over a hundred products for free. Furthermore, I have scoured the web looking for secret VIP product tester lists for companies and brands. And, because we send thousands of people to these sites each month, some of these companies asked us to help launch them by including them on this list.

Yes these websites are safe. I would never add any fraudulent sites on my blog. These are survey panels I currently use to have opportunities to test products at home. There is no commitment so you can quit anytime by unsubscribing.

My question is, on my profile should I have it set on “Hide all activity on your profile”? I didn’t want other people/reviewers looking at my reviews to purposely give it a” not helpful” mark. Will this prevent me from receiving offers from sellers? I didn’t see this covered. I appreciate your help.

This is a product promotion network sending discounted and free product samples to shoppers / influencers. Membership is free. Available for reviewers in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Japan.

One major piece of information that Amazon does not share is how often it invites users to the Vine program, so it’s never really clear if Amazon is actively recruiting new reviewers. So if you want to be considered, you’ll simply have to keep at it. Most anecdotes found online of Vine members being invited are somewhat dated at this point.

5. Make contact. Once you identify potential reviewers, reach out to them explaining that you discovered their review on Amazon. Explain that you have a book or product that you think may be of interest to them, and would like to send it to them. Further explain that you are seeking an honest review of the item you send, but that they don’t have an obligation (this process is about inviting reviews, not forcing reviews). About 50 percent of the people who get my book, will post an honest review. And yes, there have been occasions where someone I identified in this method destroyed my book in their review, but that is the nature of a good review process.

Please reach out to Amazon about this issue. We do not control reviews, reviewers, or what they do on Amazon. This is a blog, that’s it. We don’t have reviewers, and I have no way to intervene or help out in this matter.

I haven’t personally used this one, but I have seen other people talk about it. They have a one page website where you simply submit your email address and when they have products available for review you will get an email.
