EF?

So my husband kind of thinks EF is a rip off, that being a reviewer you cant get free assignments. That they would probably only give us the one for us free to do a review then make us pay if we want to keep doing reviews... I don't think its true, but can some people back me up on this? Cause I can't afford to buy toys, but I do have the time to write reviews. So I would love if this hole reviewer thing was actually legit.

I would say that 3/4 of my 103 reviews were free. I can tell you, and him, that it is no joke. As long as you write the reviews, you will advance your rank and thus be able to request more expensive products.

Hi, NicNat. I think it's good that your husband keeps a sharp eye out for scams on the internet, because there are plenty, but Eden Fantasys is a site to trust.

I do think that EF's prices are a little more expensive than some other sites, but EF has so many more benefits that make up for it (free gifts, promotions, discreet packaging, Eden Points, review program, on and on).

I paid 20 dollars for my first sex toy - the second one I purchased I bought with Eden Points and a 30% discount for a buyout review. This second toy cost more than the first one.

The review program is totally legit, although there are limitations. For example, you can only get one free toy every 30 days. In order to do the free assignments, you also have to be an Advanced Reviewer.

However, EF doesn't have any secret hidden credit card fees and there's no contract you have to sign (apart from doing the review).

I spend about $100 on my first order and then the rest of my reviews have all been for free or buyout reviews! There are also tons of ways to get paid in gift card credit like writing articles ect! This is a legitimate site!

in terms of it being a scam, it certainly is not. Consider, however, the time that goes into a review. Not counting the testing of a product, a review takes me a good 2-3 hours to complete and could take other people longer (or shorter). For each review a person receives 50 points (50 cents really) and if they're an advanced reviewer, they either a free toy (once a month) or 30% off a toy. Now, consider 2-3 hours (or however long it takes) multiplied by 7.25, the federal minimum wage. If a review does not earn a person $7.25 an hour in discounts and points, or is not made up for with free product reviews, then reviews are not rational. That being said, it is fun not everything is rational in life.

I've already gotten 3 free toys/items so far, not including gifts and buyouts which I then used my points to cover. My boyfriend told me about this site, because he knew someone who used it years ago, and got loooooots of free stuff. So no, it's not just the one time, and it's definitely not a rip off

I agree, I think of it as my hobby! It's essentially free, but has some start up costs and occasionally up keep costs! While it may not be rational, it's more fun than knitting!

Not a rip off at all. They will never try to upscale you on something else. Be a consistent reviewer and they will continue to upgrade your status and offer more rewards. I can tell you this from personal experience, I've been in meetings with Fred and Ruffina and they are ABSOLUTELY dedicated to keeping this community and it's contributors happy and compensated for the great amount of effort that you put in this site!

You can become a reviewer and get free assignments without ever giving EF your credit card information.

It is legitimate, but (without sounding snarky), you need to make sure you come across a little more clearly (and pay attention to things like "whole" vs "hole", etc) than the above.

That all said, your husband is wrong. If you can get the rank, you can get the toys.

I agree. Most of my toys are free. I can't remember the last time I paid out of pocket. It's been years. It is NOT a rip off and honestly, even if EF charged a monthly or even a yearly fee that was reasonable, I'D PAY IT!

And even if you don't get high, you get at least one free toy a month if you do your assignments on time.

I'm glad your husband is looking out for you, but Eden is perfectly legit and there's nothing ever going to stop you from gettng at least one free toy a month once you become an advanced reviewer. You may receive more than that with other specials and the free gifts that they offer but you can guarantee at least one minimum.

Do you ever wonder if the points program will collapse, under the weight of numbers of people buying things for free?

I usually figured that for every person that gets all of their toy free, there are people like me who save 60-80% on the toys with discounts and points, but always pay a little bit. Plus there are probably plenty of people who don't even get the 25 daily search points, much les the review, article or discussion points.
