I would like to know, besides being mentioned as a top Amazon reviewer, are they rewarded for being part of the profits generated with their honest words and precious time they utilize everyday to the Amazon family?

For any reviewer that has reviewed any product that they have personally purchased and has had their reviews posted.

If they are lucky enough (and live in the US, I guess), they might be asked to join Amazon Vine (and therefore get products for free). There is a rumour that the very top reviewers get a handmade Christmas card. Otherwise, umm, no.

The first rule of being a top reviewer is, you do not talk about being a top reviewer.

What Iola said is completely true, including the bit about the card. They are quite lovely.

The reward for reviewing is the satisfaction one gets from helping other customers.

The act of writing a review is a consumer awareness and thank you all at once. You are alerting future buyers to the good or bad of the product they are considering purchasing, and in a sense, also paying tribute to the people who wrote reviews that were then read and considered by you when deciding on an Amazon purchase. A, "You scratch my back, I'll scartch yours" type thingy. At least, that is how i view this whole Amazon reviewing dealie.

ed: apparently, "scartch" is the new "scratch", on my keyboard at least. :)

I would like to know how you were able to write such a LONG title!

I never got a handmade card sprinkled with Jeff Bezos fairy dust though.

Sheila (NJ) says:
I hear if you bump off 122 of the posters who are ahead of you then you will get your card. If you sprinkle the fairy dust on yourself you will not only be able to fly, you will have the urge to write 2 reviews each and every single day.

HK must have gotten fairy dust dumped on her, like that commercial with the tripping sandman

Sheila (NJ) says:
I think when there was the classic review ranking, the #1 person got sent a pouch of fairy dust that she was supposed to share. However, she got greedy and used the whole thing and then just like if you were to take too much Felix Felicis, "it causes giddiness, recklessness, and dangerous overconfidence if taken in excess".

Poor HK, it was the dust that did her in.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 11, 2012, 5:36:52 PM PDT
Maybe she got afraid after reading how one is never ever ever supposed to share, even with family or fido, and used it on herself

"like that commercial with the tripping sandman"

You mean Danny Bonaduce?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 11, 2012, 5:39:56 PM PDT
I always had the biggest crush on Danny, and the bigger creep he was the bigger my crush, go figure.

I thought he was pretty cool when he dumped that reality star on his face.

Not a rumor on the cards; I have two and they are very pretty. One has some cricut snowflakes and an A-Z arrow and last year's is on some kind of earthy crunchy brown paper card with stars outlined in gold glitter. I keep one on my cork board over my desk at work. The other is on my mantle at home. There was some research study that said a plain ol' thank you or a card was very much appreciated by people and I can say, I like the cards very much. They are signed inside by the review-group at Amazon.

Rebecca, perhaps you just gave away the secret way to get into Vine! Buy someone high up at Amazon something from their Gift list! <yes I'm teasing>

You have a choice: either they name a new crayon color or new nail polish color after you.

I am very fond of my "Crimson Chandler" polish.

Oh I have done that more times than I can count. It must work! Although I'm a little tardy getting to the vine email so normally I get the leftovers.
