How to Get Things on Amazon for Free or with Big Discount
If you shopped on Amazon in the last couple of years, you’ve probably seen product reviews with disclosure at the end that said “I received this item at a discount or free for my honest review”.
You probably wondered how the heck did this person become so lucky to get free products for reviews.
Actually, anyone can sign up and get free or deeply discounted products. You do not need to be a professional product reviewer, you just need to know where to find these product review opportunities.
Amazon use to (before October 2016) allow sellers to give steep discounts on products away in exchange for “honest” reviews. But this is no longer allowed, so many of the Amazon review sites are no longer alive.
There are now several Amazon discount websites that offer not quite the same level of discounts, like Amazon Free Stuff codes that use to get passed around, but with 50% off (once a while even 90% off or free).
So What’s the Catch?
There is no catch really.
These discounts are sponsored by the sellers to either liquidate, or to sell products faster to build a sales history, which can improve their product’s Amazon search visibility.
So as a shopper, you’re doing them a favor by increasing their sales velocity. The sellers are most of the time losing money to run these promotions.
What Kind of Products Can I Expect from These Sites?
The products you find on these sites won’t be name brand products, like iPhones, or Cards Against Humanity.
You’ll find a lot of no-name brands, and products like supplements, exercise equipment, clothing, or niche products like mouse pads for dog lovers, or a wooden crucifix.
Most of the products you’ll probably never need, but they’re so cheap, I buy them sometimes as gifts for other people. 🙂
How to buy with Big Discount or free on Amazon
The sellers usually pay these websites to list their products. As a shopper, you’ll need to sign-up to be able to claim the discounted items. You’ll be provided an Amazon coupon code to use at checkout.
All items listed for sale will be Amazon Prime Eligible.
Some sites require you to have Prime Membership, so consider getting Prime or get the 30-Day Free Trial if you are not a member. (Free 30-day Trial for Prime Link Here)
Below are the list of sites that still offer deeply discounted products.
