Is your front porch a brown box fort with arrows pointing from A to Z?
Does your Prime delivery driver or USPS driver know you by first name?
Do you almost always have something waiting in your cart?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, you might be a perfect candidate as an Amazon Product Reviewer.
If you love shopping with Amazon, why not turn that love of shopping into free stuff or some cash? Money can be made by becoming a product tester and writing reviews of items listed on Amazon and other retailers. It’s an easy way to share your thoughts, give feedback on products you already know and love or hate, and help other shoppers.
There are a few ways to get this party started, and we’ve got all the details laid out below.
Get with Prime
To get paid for writing Amazon product reviews, you’ll want to be an Amazon Prime member and download the app. You have the option of paying $139 per year or $14.99 per month. Discounted prices are available to students and to recipients of EBT, Medicaid, and other select government assistance programs.
Review previous purchases
If you haven’t already, start writing reviews about the purchases you’ve already made. Businesses will want to know what to expect from you before considering requests for free products. And instead of just buying items to simply review, why not review what you already buy and love? Don’t waste, don’t want.
Dig into that makeup drawer, if that’s your obsession for the day, and check out the brands you know and love (or don’t love). Or, if your main topic is books or book reviews, use the purchases you’ve already made. or even books you’ve read at your local library to boost your content on those book review websites.
Do Amazon Influencers Get Free Stuff?
Yes, Amazon influencers can get free products, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Unless you already have a large following on social media, it will take some time before you get free products to review.
You’ll want to make sure your writing is clear, honest, features product images, and reveals all important information. Remember, you are also writing to attract more leads. You may also want to consider how many positive and negative reviews you are writing. If most of your product reviews are strongly negative, companies may not be as interested in shipping test products to your door. Be honest, but don’t be too negative.

consider a blog
If you really want to gain some exposure outside of Amazon, get set up on a platform like WordPress, Wix, or Weebly and start writing your own blog.
Once you’ve got your blog/website set up, you’ll want to consider affiliate marketing. Amazon’s affiliate program is called Amazon Associates and it helps content creators and bloggers to monetize their content.
Your site must comply with those of Amazon participation requirements To be approved. Once you’re up and running, you’ll want to write some detailed reviews and add an affiliate link to those products in your post. When someone clicks on the link – cha-ching, you earn a commission. And you can review just about any product you want that makes sense or works with your brand. This leads to…
using your influence
Do you have a following on the ‘Gram? Maybe your Pinterest page goes crazy with shares and pins? Use that influence to your advantage. Share your reviews (and wish lists) with your social media audience to drive more views and purchases.
Your blog posts now become your content and vice versa. The more you promote your own posts, the more visibility you will get. Make sure the products you review are branded the same as the rest of your content. Your audience may be looking for specific types of products from you and your profiles. Your Instagram, YouTube channel, Facebook, TikTok, etc. are great places to share your helpful reviews.
Create your writing material with free products
A quick trip to the Google search box will take you to many websites promoting free products in exchange for an honest review. After you’ve spent time writing about your past purchases, it’s time to use one of these sites to create your blog or catalog.
And before we get too deep into this topic, you’ll also want to consider using ebates to get cash back on your purchases, free birthday rewards, collect loyalty points to earn more free products, etc.
websites like brand sponsor and home fitting room club they are perfect for collecting free products to review. However, if you’re looking for more opportunities or if you just want some tips on how to write better reviews, give this link A read. There are also plenty of Facebook groups dedicated to these topics, and they can help you find companies that are open to customer feedback.
Know your audience
A couple of extra notes:
Most product reviewers don’t get paid cash for writing their honest opinion. Payment can be in cash, but is mostly received in Amazon gift cards, store gift cards, free products, and discounts.
Amazon product influencers get the most attention when they are well written, humorous, and detailed. However, detailed reviews don’t always have to be full of praise. Be honest in your writing and increase your reviewer ranking.
The latest fake reviews are a no-no, and while it may seem like a shortcut to writing an upbeat review about a product, you risk getting banned by Amazon and shortening your career as an Amazon reviewer.
