Overview of Giveaway Service

They have a ‘sign up’ process, not an ‘application’ process or ‘wait list’. The latter two are often used by review sites to make it feel more exclusive.

They also support a good range of countries for reviews: mainly USA, UK and Canada, but also offers some promotions in Germany, Spain, New Zealand, Australia. They request that all promotion details be in English.

I did notice that they have hundreds of products (“promotions”) to go through. But (at time of writing), after about the 8th page the products started showing “expired”. See screenshot below (note “expired” product on right):
Giveaway Service promotions

They also have a forum where reviewers can discuss topics and issues, similar to the one found on Amazon. To read and comment you have to be logged in.

I’ll update this when I start to get more products from them. If you have experience with them, please leave your insights in the comments below.

There is a great blog post written by the their team explaining everything reviewers “need to know for creating and using your account at Giveaway Service successfully.”

Tell them I sent you!

Sorry but I Find whenever I get a code on your site all I get are US codes that do not ship to Canada and the ones I sign up to are never the US only ones. And when I contact the company they do not reply

I noticed some of the products have a lot of requirements in addition to an Amazon review.
Task 1: Write blog post / review about product
Task 2: Write post on Facebook about product
Task 3: Write post on Twitter about product
Task 4: Write post on Instagram about product
Task 5: Write review on Amazon

I also don’t like that no price is listed shown before you click the Apply button on a specific product.

I’m going to wait for some other people to try this one out & share their (hopefully positive) experiences before I join.

I have been using giveaway service for awhile and they are an upstanding company that backs a lot of companies. They are not the ones in charge of what you need to do when doing a review nor are they in charge of the cost of items, it all falls on the product company. I have absolutely zero complaints about giveaway service, any time I’ve had a question they have had it answered in a few hours. they are patient and easy to work with.

This website has a LOT of quality of products! Of course, I haven’t received anything yet because I just signed up today, however sometimes you can tell a lot from a picture. I requested several itemsc and I hope to hear from them really soon! This is definitely in my top 3.

Update: Linda was right! Customer service responds very quickly! However, this site seems to be targeted towards influencers. If you don’t have a large following on social media or a blog site, you are not likely to be chosen for promotions, according to the FAQ page. Given the seemingly higher value of many of the products listed on their site, I don’t think it’s totally unreasonable to want a little more exposure from reviewers than just Amazon. Here is a little info I got from Paul Blum:

“When you click on a promotion you can see all important information there.
Final approval date is the date until which companies must approve all authors and send them coupon codes.
Final shipment date is the date date until which companies must ship the product.

Giveaway Service is a platform where brands run promotion campaigns, work with influential people and get relevant eyeballs on their products.
By using our platform, mass market brands increase their brand awareness and sales by working with influential people. Influencers monetize from their fans, followers and social media presence.

Our main focus is to connect brands with influential people to get testimonials and reviews on their products offered at a discounted price that does not exceed $2.”

I actually like that the authors have profile pages. For those of you are interested, make sure to link ALL of your social media accounts and blogs/websites. Remember that you will be scored and that you may not qualify for certain items until you a have a enough history to give you a score. It’s kind of complicated, so if you have any questions, send them an email.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you for taking the time to state your opinion.
We would like to add that not all promotions on our website require social media posts. In fact, most of the promotions require Amazon reviews only.
However, you are completely right it’s extremely useful to link all social media accounts with Giveaway Service profile. It gives the businesses to gain insight in your reviewing history and learn something about you.
Lots of luck with getting approved.

Kind regards,

Dear Barbara, When you click on a promotion you can see all important information there. Products are promoted for a discounted price that never exceeds $2. Businesses who want to get reviews set a price in the range between $0 and $2. That price is visible to all authors who consider applying for promotions. Kind regards, Miranda.

I am new to the world of reviewing but I have signed up for several sites. Giveaway Services is my favorite thus far and I am hoping to find other review sites just like it! I love that everything I have seen is $2 or less. I do not have my social media sites set up and I have already received two products to review. Both have been quality products that I would have actually purchased in stores. I LOVE that I do not feel like I need to rush or scramble in order to have a chance to review a product I am interested in. I found that by the time I get to most of my emails (for those who send emails) I am already too late. This puts the decision in the sellers hands and gives a much better chance for reviewers like me to be able to review a product. I have had a question and have received a very prompt response with helpful feedback. I am so grateful to have this opportunity. Thank you Giveaway Service and thank you Reviewer Collective for putting all this wonderful information together!!

Do you know if they accept reviewers from Canada. I would be interested in joining.

I got word back that they do support reviewers in Canada! And a bunch of other countries too. I updated the list of countries at the top of this page.

I did sign up and have found several items that are available to Canada. I agree it would be nice to have the price listed on the item before clicking and it would also be helpful to have the country listed that way you don’t have to click on each item only to find you are not eligible. Other than that, the prices are very very reasonable or free. I am loving this site. Have not been approved for anything as of yet but fingers are crossed.

No sense even trying if you are not from the US. They have hundreds of item and absolutely no way to sort them by country. I only found one item that was from Amazon Canada and that was a gopro kit that the promotion ended last year.

Dear JS,
Thank you for your input. We are working hard on expanding our market to Canada. We also plan to implement a search filter that would enable our members to conduct a fast search by countries. Thank you for giving our service a chance and for joining the discussion.

I just joined, almost everything is expired. I counted exactly 37 products that were not. I didn’t even make it past the first page. Also, the very first thing I looked at was $46, a baby carrier. I read earlier, that nothing is over $2. So… I guess things have changed with this site…

Dear J,

Promotions on Giveaway Service are mostly for members in the USA. However, we are working hard on expanding and we usually have 1-2 promotions for the UK each month. Lots of luck with future promotions.

Kind regards,
Miranda
