Do you ever get free stuff from Amazon third party sellers to review?


Anyone lucky enough to be picked and review their products?

I know that by doing so this will mean biased reviews which not everyone will admittedly and morally agree to so said people would refuse, even if free.

Amazon frown on free/discounted products in exchange for reviews , it's actually against their rules for the seller or someone to influence the outcome of the review etc. There have been many review purges over the last 6 months deleting thousands of reviews that were linked to dodgy sellers/were biased reviews etc..

But before all that changed 4 or 5 months a go I was ranked in the top 2k of reviewers and frequently had sellers contact me and send me free or discounted things and had been honestly reviewing things like that for a few years.

There are still loads of FB groups that offer products for you to 'test' and obviously sites like Vipon/EliteDealClub/DealHustl etc.. which are product promotion/test with the hope you will review (those sites have been around for quite a while although many people here on LD have joined up thinking they are new, they have all had to rebrand from review to promo)

Oh and not everyone gives biased reviews, there are still alot of honest reviewers out there 🙂

Does that help at all?


I have been sent a shoe cleaning kit from Trinova don't know how they got my details but they have just asked me to leave a review on the product website and amazon sales pages.


I get sent a lot of books to review, but they're mainly from authors directly rather than Amazon.
