This is the message I received from the Genius Paw company. I'm pretty sure this isn't allowed- what do I do? Thank you for your interest in our product Genius Paw Heavy Duty Dog Seat Belt. We will be glad to send you free sample for testing and would love to have your review. In order to have your review on get verified and avoid being removed by Amazon, I would suggest you to buy in full price and I will prepaid you. Here are the steps: 1) You place an order on and give me your order ID 2) I pay you back via PayPal. I will cover all fee including shipping, so that there is no cost to you. Reference #: p9j6b4r6

Hi Rachel, this is forbidden, mainly because there is not guarantee that they will pay you the money. The second reason is that this is against Amazon TOS. You can leave up to 5 review for non verified purchase items, and they will not get deleted if they are written with your own words, and not some genreic text like this is awesome, you must try it... The brand will be warned that they are violating the rules.

You can suggest them that you can continue with the promotion like it was said on the promotion details. If they do not agree, let me know and I will remove you from the promotion.
