Seriously…you can get thousands of dollars worth of free sh*t on Amazon doing this.
It sounds gimmicky as hell but I swear it’s real. I’ve gotten all kinds of random tech and household gadgets. Free (yes, FREE). You don’t have to pay for shipping, tax, transaction fees. You don’t have to wait weeks for a rebate or sign up your email to get spam, sign up for creditcard, or any other kind of gotcha.
I got free…
- Chargers and cables for Apple products
- USB sticks, hubs, devices
- home security camera
- hair dryer, and other beauty products
- security cameras
- portable batteries and solar panels (for USB devices)
- portable house heaters
- desk lamps, portable lights/lanterns
- car accessories (mats, organizers, sunshade, etc)
- fitness and health products
- there’s pills, too (but I don’t trust those! haha)
- lost track of everything I got (I think I’ll never buy from the “impulse aisle” in stores anymore)
Here’s how it works…
You need to find one of those Facebook ads for “free test review products”.
^— This is what it looks like. Just click [Send Message] and they’ll walk you through the process.
If you’ve never seen one of these, don’t worry I promise it’s very easy to find. I’m sure you already know by now that Facebook is nosy as hell and knows what you’re looking for the moment you even think of it, search it, message a friend about it, speak it out loud, or visit a website with similar information. I’m willing to bet just from you reading this post right now is enough to trigger Facebook’s algorithms. I swear I see one like almost every time I use Facebook now.
But if you still don’t see the ads:
- Try search Facebook for some free product testing groups.
- Join some.
- Read about some.
That should be enough.
So who are these companies? And why are they giving away stuff for free?!
Most of them (like damn near all of them, 100% of the ones I deal with) are from China. They make stuff for really cheap and sell on Amazon. The problem is that there are dozens if not hundreds of sellers in every freaken product category. Search for replacement iPhone cables and you’ll see hundreds of the same thing. Search for yoga mats, and it’s the same thing. They all copy each other, sometimes varying minor things, other times it looks exactly the same but with only a different name printed on there.
And their pricing is also really similar. The ones with few or no reviews are the cheapest, the ones with thousands of trusted reviews can command a higher price. Anyway, new sellers have a hard time establishing themselves on Amazon because they don’t have any reviews and so nobody orders from them.
That’s where you come in.
These companies are happy to send you the product for free if you write them a review.
So what are the requirements/restrictions?
- You have an Amazon account – it’s preferable if you have Amazon Prime but it’s totally fine if you don’t. The reason why is because they (usually) don’t refund shipping. Amazon Prime gives free shipping no matter what, but if you don’t have Prime then just order more stuff to get free shipping. They will ask you to send your Amazon profile link for proof. (Mine looks like this.)
- You have a PayPal account – they like to send refunds via PayPal. If you don’t have it, then they can send it to you via Amazon Gift Card.
- You order the product first – then send proof of purchase to the seller. Usually via Facebook messenger with the person/machine you’re chatting with. They may also ask for a screenshot of the Amazon order.
- Then you leave a review – you can leave a product review right when you receive it. Other times, the seller will ask you to wait a couple days before leaving it so it looks more real. (Amazon removes reviews they think are fake.)
- Then they send you refund – they’ll PayPal it to you.
A few extra tips:
- “Early refunds” – some of them are really nice and are willing to send you the refund BEFORE you even order the product. So it’s no risk at all to you. Others are willing to send refund right after you order. Some are willing to send 50% before ordering, and then 50% after review. Just ask and you’ll see. Either way, I don’t mind. I’ve never been burned (and I’m sure they won’t risk getting a negative review and their Amazon account banned, right?!)
- Pay close attention to the review requirements – some are happy with only a few words and 5-star ratings. Others make ask for images and video. Don’t be fooled…many sellers are willing to give you extra money for putting videos/images. “Shop around”, so to speak.
- Expensive products may only give 50% refund – which really isn’t bad for a big item that normally costs $200-300.
- If you like the seller – ask what other items they have. Since both parties trust each other, everything is so much easier. You can freely order hundreds of dollars worth of items all at once. And they’ll send refund immediately after you order.
Go try it now and let me know what you get! You’re welcome! 🙂
