Not Me Monday – Amazon Reveiws

2 Comments

Hi Everyone!

I’m back from vacation.  Rested, rejuvenated and ready to go.

So tell me – – how did last week go with the substitutes?  Did you like having subs?  Did you not?

This week’s Not Me Monday talks about the Reviews found on Amazon.com.

 

Of course, this particular review (above) is meant to be funny.  Here’s another example.

I have found the reviews that are written for any product to be really quite helpful.  And helpful not just in the sense of “should I or shouldn’t I buy” this product.  But they are also helpful in offering personal and detailed experience.  Many offer tips and hints on how to use the product better.   (See above).

I also really appreciate the star ratings and the ability to go directly to any level of review.

It is sort of like the Consumer Reports for all the rest of the products.  I recommend reading through at least five reviews and pick a variety of review levels so you get the whole spectrum of a product.

Do you ever use Amazon’s Reviews to help with you purchasing decisions?  Do you use another source?  Please share!

Happy Monday.  It’s so nice to be back.

  1. I, too, find the reviews quite helpful. Of course, you do have to be careful of ‘planted’ reviews – both positive and negative. Amazon is good about showing when the reviewer has actually purchased the item being reviewed. This gives the reader a bit more confidence in its authenticity.

  2. YES! That is a really good thing to make note of as well. Thank you for mentioning it.
