Product Reviews

Product Review Policy:

Updated 5-29-2020

Geekazine loves to review all items tech-related. We do a complete test of a product and also poll information from others to give the best review possible. Reviews will be given without bias.

Geekazine is a small shop of influencers: We review products as they come in. Sometimes, we get back-logged. Timeframe depend on projects already scheduled or in-review.

The review can take up to 30 days or more from first-open before a post is created as the item is tested in multiple aspects for a good understanding of the product. Depending on other projects, we might not get to a review right away.

Review Types

No Sponsor Reviews (a.k.a. Free Reviews)

This is how Geekazine mostly operates. Send your product, and we will put into the queue to check out.

These reviews could be bumped for a more important or sponsored review

Review with possible Giveaway

We like this the most – you agree to supply a model to give away to the audience. These campaigns can yield some great return.

Paid Product Reviews:

From time to time, Geekazine is paid to review a product. This does not sway any opinion on a product review, but it could take priority in the review queue. All opinions are that of If you have any questions on the review, read the rate card first, then feel free to contact Geekazine.

Paid product can also include giveaways.

Sponsored Reviews

Sponsored Review is defined as a company that will pay for the post or review. Free product is not considered sponsored review, unless it totals more than $999.

Sponsored reviews will be marked as such. They may undergo “First review” by the company, in which they have 24 hours to view and make corrections only. This does not sway the opinion of the reviewer. Once a video is posted, it is considered complete. Read the Rate Card

Geekazine will also get loaners, “Lifetime lease” product or “Free product” for the review. We will try to inform you what the product review is during the time.

Geekazine Does NOT Do Amazon – PayPal Refund Reviews

This is where a vendor contacts us to say they have a product they want reviewed. They ask us to buy it, and they will refund our PayPal account. They also require a Amazon review.

This is AGAINST AMAZON’S Terms of Service, and could get Geekazine removed as an affiliate and influencer. The seller inflates their sales data, and will also lose their sales ID. This is a lose-lose for everyone.

Product must be sent directly to the address below, without compensation. If a return is needed, seller must have the return package information in the box.

Right Not to Release

Geekazine reserves the right to not release a product review for products that:

  • Have been known to harm consumers
  • Promote any gaming, tobacco, or adult site or content
  • The product has been discontinued prematurely
  • It does not fit the Geekazine brand (I don’t do makeup reviews, for example, unless it has a tech aspect to it)
  • Other reasons

Geekazine will make the final decision and contact the company stating why the product did not get reviewed or posted. Free product will be returned in some cases, and will require the company to send return shipping information.

Products that can harm people or the environment will be disposed of properly, and authorities will be notified.

Negative Reviews:

Geekazine chooses not to release any review that has an overall negative score. Geekazine considers a negative review to have less than a 25% rating by the reviewer and/or the public. However, Geekazine also reserves the right to publish a negative product review at any time.
