Leave honest reviews for free products

If you’re already an Amazon Prime member and pride yourself on the honest, informative, and detailed reviews you leave all the products sent to you, you’re probably in high demand for sellers seeking product reviews. Try visiting CashBackBase, a relatively new website that features totally free and close to free items so long as you’re willing to leave a detailed review. We’ve seen some of our favorite Amazon Prime gifts pop up as freebies on this site, so we know you’ll love it.

Become an Amazon Vine reviewer

If you’d like to get free stuff on Amazon, you definitely want to utilize Amazon Vine. Never heard of Amazon Vine? Don’t worry, most people haven’t, and we’re considering it the CIA of Amazon products because it’s a semi-secret organization devoted to getting Amazon’s top product clients great and insightful reviews, sometimes even before products launch. If you’re a power user on Amazon, you can try to get invited to the program, at which point Amazon headquarters will start mailing you lots of boxes of exciting new product launches, all in exchange for your opinion. The program has been around for over a decade, and people are really just starting to find out about it, so this is a good time to get in while it’s not yet saturated. Check out how to join.
