I don't think that paid reviews are allowed on Amazon, at least not anymore, @Mari North . I had also read about people offering to write reviews (I think I saw some on Fiverr ) ; but Amazon did put a stop to that, at least as much as they can do. However, new businesses , and small businesses, actively seek for reviews on their products, as well as feedback on the product. This is why they will sell the products at a discount for people to buy, try , and then write a review. Yes, it is basically an incentive for someone to write a review; but it helps out everyone, Amazon makes money, the seller makes money, and the buyer saves money and gives important input about the product. This is a win-win situation, in my mind, at least. Even a negative review helps, especially when you leave feedback with the seller, so they know what needs to be improved with their product, and they will usually fix the problem once they know it exists. My Amazon profile says that I am an Amazon Top Reviewer, and that is why I have started getting these offers. I also found several other websites that offer Amazon discounts, and have signed up with a couple more of them to try this out better. If we can save money on Amazon products, help small businesses get started, and enjoy trying out the products that are offered, I will be happy. I also do some surveys, and those reward me with Amazon GC's, so that helps to pay for the items we try out. It all works together for good. If anyone else is interested in doing this, there are tutorials on Youtube, and just do a search for "amazon reviewer" and you can find a lot of helpful information. I think you might enjoy this, @Ina I. Wonder ! ! PM me if you are interested and I will help you get started. You have a good mind for details and can write an excellent product review, and a lot of family that you like to gift things to, so it might be something that you would enjoy doing, too.
