Get Free Stuff on Amazon for Reviews

Almost every day I get a ton of things from UPS and the USPS. These are things that I get free or at a really deep discount and everyone always asks how to get started. Here is a photo of just one of my recent orders.

Here are a few tips:

  • Start Reviewing. Start reviewing everything you have bought on Amazon, at stores like Walmart, etc. You'll find that the most important are Amazon. You can even review things you have not bought but have used, books you've read, and movies you've watched. Your profile rating raises every time your review is marked as helpful.
  • Join a Review Site. There are plenty of sites you can join that allow you to find out who is sending out free items to review. Many places will start you out on things like supplements or skin care (think - lots of vitamin C facial serum) but it's nice to try out these things at no cost or little cost. Some review sites are Tomoson and Elite but here is a list of places that I snagged from Reviewer Collective and their site is within this link to the list.
  • Always Disclose. Amazon is very serious about their review programs. You cannot be paid to review something and you must disclose. This means that if you get an item free or discounted you must disclose that within your review. For instance, "I received this item at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion."
  • Be Honest. It sucks to get something free that the company is excited over and it's less than you expected. However, do be honest in your reviews because that is the whole point of the review system. Some places will address your issues and fix whatever is wrong so feel free to contact them about your issues first.
  • Your Profile. Make sure to fill out your profile on Amazon and include your email address so you can be contacted with offers. Also, include your interests and if you feel the direct approach is for you, mention that you love reviewing products.

Once you get high enough in ranking, the offers will come. In the meantime, try one of the review sites.

Gurin Professional Rechargeable Flosser with High Capacity Water Tank

I've always wanted a water flosser but for some reason, never got one. I've had and use electric toothbrushes and that type of thing but never got one of these. So when I was offered the chance to get the product in exchange for a free review, I took it.

The Gurin Professional Rechargeable Flosser with High Capacity Water Tank works well and I use it often. I did learn one thing though - close your mouth when you use it. Having never used one, I got water on my face, my shirt, and the walls. Fun times. However, now that I know what I'm doing, it really works well to help floss your teeth.

  • New version includes: High Quality Rechargeable Batteries, an easy to fill water tank, quiet motor and a tip release button.
  • BPA Free and FDA Approved. Extra large reservoir is removable and easy to refill
  • Three operating modes for varying oral care needs: Normal Soft and Pulse. Two color coded and interchangeable tips are included for multiple users.
  • Rotating interchangeable nozzles great for multiple users, Universal Voltage, 100 to 240V~50/60Hz:
  • Provides and easy and effective way to support proper teeth and gum health at home
Check it out and get one for yourself. You'll really like it!

Savory Crawfish Cheesecake

This is a recipe we wanted to try since seeing it in New Orleans. It was out of this world and about 100 times better than I could have imagined! It turned out huge too. The picture here is before it was sliced and topped with the corn.

1/3 cup bread crumbs
1 cup Parmesan cheese
4 oz butter, melted
2lbs cream cheese, softened
4 eggs
2/3 cup cream
1 cup smoked Gouda cheese, grated
1 cup onion, medium diced
½ cup green pepper, medium diced
½ cup yellow bell pepper, diced
½ cup red bell pepper, diced
1 lb alligator sausage, diced
¼ cup green chili pepper, diced
1 lb crawfish tail meat
2 tspn salt
1 tspn chipotle powder
½ tspn black pepper
½ tspn white pepper
1 lemon

  • Mix bread crumbs and cheese; add butter and press into a 10" springform pan.
  • Bake 10 minutes in a 350°F oven to set crust.
  • Whisk the cream cheese until smooth; add eggs and whisk; then add cream and the Gouda cheese.
  • Sauté veggies with spices until soft. Add crawfish and cook until just done.
  • Add sausage and chili pepper, and fold into cream cheese mixture. Zest lemon and use juice too.
  • Wrap foil around pan to prevent leakage and fill pan with mix. Cover top and bottom of pan in case of leakage - add vent holes
  • Bake in water bath in a 450°F oven for 1½ to 2 hours. 
  • Remove when an inserted knife comes out clean and the filling is set. 
  • Cool before cutting. Remove from spring mold, cut into 12 pieces

Get Your W2 Online

Preparing for tax season can be a real pain and one of the worst things when preparing is having to wait on companies to send you your W2 form. Whether it's a company you previously worked for or one you work for currently, did you know that you can get your W2 online?

Not only does this help you have everything at your fingertips but it also saves time on waiting on the actual paper copy. That allows you to go ahead and start working on your return so that you can have your refund back as soon as possible.

In fact, check this out:

Many companies, including the military, have their employees W-2’s available online. The documents can be downloaded via a variety of outsourcing companies so the distribution process of the W-2’s are automated. Your employer should alert you as to whether or not you will be able to access your W-2 online.
If they do allow you to access it online, you will get the benefit of being able to file your taxes earlier in addition to not waiting for paper copies, and eliminating the security risks that come along with having that information sitting around on paper. 

Don't wait on someone else when you can have it sooner.
