Long story short here. You are trading reviews for free or discounted stuff.

Do not leave fake reviews or only give 5 star reviews amazon will ban your ass fast.

I've managed to get over 100 items either free or like 90% off.

Some tips, make the review long but coherent. Simply write the review you would want to read. Pictures help as well. And if it's a shitty product tear it to shreds.

I was always curious how all those reviewers were getting products for free!
Would love to do that for some things I actually need right now.

I'm definitely going to give this a try this week! Im off for spring break for 9 fucking days!!!!!

I filled out paperwork to become a mystery shopper which seems like the closest thing to this. But your thing seems like wayyyyy less a pain in the ass since you dont have to go around and hunt any particular place or item. Nice share!

Once a month I send out requests for samples to a list of companies I compile. Roughly 1/3 of them respond with stuff in the mail, coupons, etc. my best score lately was when I wrote steak and shake about my last visit. They sent me a coupon book good for about 5 free full meals (desserts, drinks, everything). I actually took a class one summer that focused on how to get companies to give you stuff for free simply by mailing/emailing them.

I will look into the Amazon reviewing when my schedule clears up a bit.

Typically, I just offer a review of my last visit or experience with their product. If it is a product I have not tried before, then I express that I am interested in the product and request a sample. Some products are unavailable in my area, so I request a sample "to decide if I want to order via Internet." Etc etc.

This method has netted tons of free food, and lots of free toiletries. Food products are,by far, the easiest. I also have an everlasting supply of coffee (I don't even drink coffee).

How quickly do you have to write the review once you've received the product?

Back in the 70’s when I was a starving musician I scammed at least one meal a day as follows-

12:30-2:30 walk in burger king, Wendy’s, McD Taco bell KFC basically any fast food joint take a mental note of person on drive thru window. Grab condiments. Leave. Wait 5-10 minutes. Call and ask for manager. The lunch rush frenzy is in your favor.

“I was just there and part of my drive thru order is missing- name up to 6 common menu items that would have fit in a single bag. Typically any shift manger would just say can you come back for that. Drive through and ask for the person you spoke to.
Used to work for groceries too back when stores had bag boys who put bags in your care but you had to dress middle class for that.

I joined a handful of survey sites that also offer product testing. After awhile you get offers to join mailing lists and now I get emails for freebies and sweepstakes. If you enter a few a day u win about 3x a year. The biggest thing I've ever won was a yo gabba gabba prize pack for my son.

If you complain, or send in a complaint to pizza hut they send you a free coupon for a whole pizza, it doesn't say what size or how many toppings so i am gonna milk the shit out of it.

Yea... Most of those are only ebooks pretty shitty honestly.

And it took me a few days to hear back but once I got started they rolled in like mad.

Have you left many reviews on your Amazon account? If not hop to it

Yep, I had a few Amazon reviews written already but only a handful. So that's why I only got the one offer to review an e-book so far.
I think this will be cool once I have more legit reviews under my belt and the offers start.
I'll be reviewing my next purchases very thoroughly!

It can be very cool, but super easy to go overboard once you start getting accepted for things. I've had over 20 things being sent to me at a time through this. Writing that many reviews sorta sucks.
