Amazon Reviewers Starter Guide

I started Doodlebugs & Daydreams to share my love for great deals, freebies, and reviewing products, so it is only right that I share how I started reviewing on Amazon. I have been doing Amazon reviews since February 2015. It is rare to have a day go by without a package or two on my doorstep! I am excited to share how to start your journey on reviewing wonderful products. I must warn you: you will be addicted with your first package!

Step 1:
I highly recommend paying the $99 for Amazon Prime. If you are unsure about this commitment, please use my link below to get a FREE 30-day trial; just remember to cancel after 30 days if you are not satisfied with the service. Amazon Prime is not just FREE 2-day shipping, it gives subscribers access to TV, movie, and music streaming.

Many companies that offer free or discounted products ask that you review the item within 10 days; this can only be accomplished with the 2-day shipping.

Try Amazon Prime for FREE for 30 days!

Amazon Prime will give you unlimited FREE 2-day shipping. Also, enjoy streaming movies and TV shows. Use my link to get a FREE 30 day trial. I promise you will not regret it; you can cancel at anytime!

Step 2:
Before joining any review groups, review your prior purchases on Amazon. Amazon does provide guidelines for writing reviews and for the most part, they are enforced. the full list of guidelines can be found HERE. The following information are the basics:


  • Include the "why": The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked a product or service, but also why. Feel free to make comparisons with related products or services you’ve experienced.
  • Be specific: Your review should be relevant to the product or service you’re reviewing and focus on specific features or your experience. For video and image reviews, we recommend that you write a brief introduction.
  • Not too short, not too long: Written reviews should be at least 20 words and are limited to 5,000 words. The ideal length is 75 to 500 words. Video reviews have a 10-minute limit, but we recommend 2 to 5 minutes to keep your audience engaged.
  • Be sincere: We welcome your honest opinion about the product or service. We do not remove reviews because they are critical. We believe all helpful information can inform our customers’ buying decisions.

Step 3:
When you have completed reviewing prior purchases on Amazon, it is time to get the party started! Sign-up for the following sites to start getting products to review for FREE or highly discounted prices! Please be patient when you begin reviewing; companies will not offer you expensive products to begin. It is important to build a good reputation. But it is best to sit now and create a log-in for each. Start a document with all your usernames and passwords; better yet, allow your computer to remember your information. I also recommend getting a notebook to keep track of what company you are reviewing the product for. Each website has different protocol on submitting your reviews.

Several sites will ask for your Amazon reviewer profile. Watch my short video to locate this information.

1. Amazon Review Trader

Once you create an account, start shopping for deals that interest you. Select "Review Now." If you are chosen for a particular product, you will be notified via e-mail! It is so exciting to check your e-mail daily for freebies!

2. UberZon Club
Simply sign-up & begin receiving e-mails with great offers! You do not have inform them when you are done reviewing. 

3. Amazing Deals Group
Sign-up and receive 2 coins to get FREE or discounted products. Once you have reviewed the item, allow the site to verify your review and gain the coins back.

I will continue to update the list of sites as I find more!

Step 4:

Once you receive the product, please leave a quality review promptly. A good review consists of 4-5 sentences that describe the product and your experience with it. Pictures and videos will also help improve your Amazon ranking. I have included the link to Amazon's review guidelines. Click Here. Always include a disclaimer letting the reader know that you have provided a an honest review in exchange for a free or discounted product.

Some sites will request that you find an item's permalink. Please watch my video to easily find the permalink.
