Have you ever wondered if there was a way to get discounts on Amazon’s already crazy low prices?
SnagShout.com is making that possible with an innovative new concept: write reviews of products for huge discounts on tons of different products. The discount depends upon the item, but they range from 40% to 60% – how crazy is that?
Here’s how it works:
- Join Snagshout by linking your Amazon account. Once you’ve linked your account, SnagShout will approve your membership
- Once your profile is set up and accepted, you can browse hundreds of different offers
- Select an item that you are willing to purchase at a huge discount and review. you will buy the item on Amazon (via a link from Snagshout’s website) using a coupon code during checkout to take advantage of the discount.
Once you receive your item, you are required to post a review after you test it out. SnagShout is notified when reviews are posted, and if you don’t complete the review you will not be allowed to continue using SnagShout.
Think of SnagShout kind of like Groupon, but with bigger discounts and a little more commitment. Sellers can limit the number of items available for sale using the discount, as well as how many times a particular coupon code can be used. Basically, the customer can only by an item at a discount once.
Am I Required to Post A 5-Star Review?
I really like that SnagShout does not guarantee positive reviews to sellers, and it requires all users to include “This product was provided at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review” within their review for transparency purposes.
Users who do not abide by the rules could be prevented from purchasing items through Snagshout again.
Is This Ethical/Legal?
Many people have raised concerns about how ethical it is to exchange review for discounts or even free products, and they would be right. People’s opinions in reviews can reflect many things, including their mood, or even how light or dark it is in the room.
And, while providing the item at a discount is sure to influence reviews towards the positive, there are just too many factors to determine exactly who the discount influences.
What Types of Products Are Available?
SnagShout offers hundreds of different products in categories such as:
- Health & Beauty
- Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry
- Electronics & Computers
- Home, Garden, & Tools
- Kids & Baby
- Pet Supplies
- Sports and Outdoors
- Vitamins and Supplements
Right now there are more than 700 businesses that have products listed on Snagshout, and the site itself has more than 30,000 registered users.
The Bottom Line: if you love a good discount and Amazon, you should definitely check it out!
