Overview of the Etekcitizen Program
Note: Program is on pause. Info below is archived form when the program was active.
Like so many others I have posted, I just signed up with this review site. I’l be updating this after I get some product from them and go through the whole experience.
And, like so many other sites, they are not using SSL sitewide to protect you and your information, especially in the account area. Seriously, your password is being sent over an unencrypted connection. Will be reaching out to them to get this fixed to protect you.
This program is interesting in that their FAQs claim:
In order to receive new products, your product review must include the following:
1. The review must include a picture or video and your honest opinion.
2. Share your review in your personal blog and/or social networking sites (Facebook, Google +, etc.)
3. Add a disclaimer to your review. This disclaimer should state that you received this product for free in an exchange for an honest review.
There is also a limit of one product per month, and up to 9 products per year.
Keep in mind that this program is run by Etekcity, a brand and Seller on Amazon. All of their products are their own—it does not appear to be a program that outsources reviews for multiple Sellers, just their own store. This is similar to how the TrueOpinion review site works.
Tell them I sent you!
UPDATE APR 26, 2017: I just received an email promotion from them. But, their site is still stating they have ceased promotions. A little confused, at the moment.
UPDATE OCT 29, 2016: They “have decided to pause all activities related to our Free Product for Review program”. I am leaving this page up in the event they start the program again.
