I would like EVERYONE to know that these businesses asking to reimburse you for ordering their products is against Amazon rules and your account will be removed if you get caught. Amazon lets businesses provide a coupon & get discounted products for reviews and you can review 5 a week. When they offer you a Paypal - that is going around their rules. And also that moves it to a verified purchase and not a review purchase which is against Amazon TOS too. I think Giveaway Services should suspend these accounts for breaking Amazon's rules and jeopardizing our accounts. This is not cool.

Hi Lousia, that kind if business is forbidden on our website, as well as on Amazon website, and it can lead into account suspension for the brand, and on Amazon consequences are much higher. We would appreciate if you could click on report message whenever a brand sends you that kind of an offer.

I see offering free / discounted products for Amazon review is also part of Giveaway service. Isn't that also against Amazon policy? what is difference between Amazon review offer by Giveaway and business asking to reimburse ordering their products? Just looking for clarification.

Also, it is not mandatory to leave a review, that is Amazon's policy. Businesses looking to reimburse is posting as a VERIFIED purchase, not a discounted one. There are differences on reviews. You can contact Amazon yourself if you would like. It's called ethics.

Reimbursement is against Amazon policy, and also is not welcomed on our website as well. We are trying to stop all kinds of reimbursements, since it can hurt authors, and our service as well. Leaving a review for a discounted product is not against Amazon TOS, you can leave a review on Amazon even if you did not purchase the item on Amazon. But leaving a review on Amazon has to be willingly, and that is why on our website Amazon tasks are not required, you do not have to do them if you do not want to.
