Do you buy a fair bit from Amazon but don't write any reviews?..this might make you think twice! (yes, I know it's a long shot!) - Receive free goodies to review and keep once selected for Amazon Vine.

What is Amazon Vine?
Amazon Vine invites the most trusted reviewers on Amazon to post opinions about new and pre-release items to help their fellow customers make informed purchase decisions. Amazon invites customers to become Vine Voices based on their reviewer rank, which is a reflection of the quality and helpfulness of their reviews as judged by other Amazon customers. Amazon provides Vine members with free products that have been submitted to the programme by participating vendors. Vine reviews are the independent opinions of the Vine Voices. The vendor cannot influence, modify or edit the reviews. Amazon does not modify or edit Vine reviews, as long as they comply with our posting guidelines. A Vine review is identified with the green stripe Customer review from the Amazon Vine programme.

Well I didn't know about it! I'm just making people aware that if you leave reviews eventually you may get selected to receive free goodies...nothing wrong with that

No pleasing some ayyyy lol x

I've been a Vine reviewer since Amazon started doing it in the UK a few years back, I seem to recall I had written something like 50-odd reviews by that time. And they have to be proper reviews of a few paragraphs each, not just a few sentences.

great stuff!..Thanks for the input. what kind of items have they been sending you? Is it once a month or something?

Thanks , this is useful information.

You can choose up to four items a month. I don't know if they are still recruiting for the Vine programme, as there are loads of Vine reviewers now. But I suppose if you can get a good ranking it will help - the ranking is based on the number of helpful votes you get vs the number of unhelpful votes, plus some complicated formula no doubt. I really don't know what my ranking was when I joined Vine, but the rules were probably more relaxed then as they were just starting it.

This is possibly the hardest ever freebie to get! You'd have to write a shed-load of really serious reviews on the off-chance that you'd get invited to join!!

Bear in mind that many of their hall of fame reviewers with 3000+ reviews still aren't in the vine program.
Also, I have seen some cretins who post absolutely hopeless, ill informed and more opinion rather than factual based almost pure SPAM reviews (with only ~50% helpful votes) who are on the scheme so my honest advice is to not waste your time. It appears relatively random and pure luck of the draw.

And for any that do luck into the scheme, be prepared for all your reviews to suddenly receive a glut of "unhelpful" votes. There is a lot of spite on Amazon, just because someone got something for free, doesn't mean that their review is invalid. People still pay to see the reviews written in What Hi-Fi and the like...
