Tips for writing great reviews

Quality matters and is one of the criteria we use when inviting members to future offers. Keep these tips in mind when writing your review:

  • Have I tried this product?
    • Make sure you have received the product and used it thoroughly before leaving a review.
  • Is my review high quality and informative?
    • Keep your review focused on the product, not on customer service or delivery.
    • Provide thoughtful, informative and well-written content.
  • How can my review help others make a purchase decision?
    • Your review will help shoppers looking for product details, so be sure to think about what product features you would want to know if you were a purchaser.
    • Example: Quality, Usability, Pros and Cons, Fit Type, Unique Features, etc.
  • Is my review honest?
    • We want to hear specifically what you liked or disliked about the product. Be authentic and provide details! Check out our authenticity policy here.
