As most of you know, I have been getting free, and almost free products from some of the amazon review websites. Now, Amazon has changed the rules for sellers yet again; so the review sites are re-inventing themselves in order to comply with Amazon's new rules. It has been illegal for sellers to pay for written reviews of their products for some time now, since Amazon discovered that this was how some sellers were getting their reviews. However, discounted products in exchange for a review has been fine, up until this week. Now, Amazon has declared that the seller cannot trade a product , either free, or for a reduced price for a customer writing a review about that product. What is happening right now, is that sellers are still offering discounted products, and hoping that the buyer will leave a review; but they can no longer ask you to do this, and you do not say in the review that you recieved the product at a discount in exchange for the review. Henceforth, it will not be stated what price a person paid, if any, for the item; so customers who are reading reviews for products will no longer know if the reviewer got the product free or paid full price. One of the review sites has started asking reviewers to leave a review on their social media instead, with the review containing a link to the product on Amazon, and also declaring the free or discounted price in exchange for the review. At this point, it is hard to say where this will go next; but hopefully, we can still get the discounted items and happily leave a review for the product, as we have been doing.
