A little over a year ago we told you how to become an Amazon reviewer that gets free stuff in exchange for writing reviews. Then, in October of 2016 Amazon changed the rules and ever since then reviewers are no longer allowed to receive free or discounted things in exchange for writing a review (with books being the one exception).

(That actually happened to their #1 reviewer, without Amazon giving him any explanation at all.)

Well now you can! Here’s how. (Amusingly, the domain from which you will download your big zip file is, wait for it, “bigzipfiles.facebook.com”.)

You may be disappointed to learn that these ladies aren’t talking about where they like to get frisky. Rather, they are talking about…
