Smiley Membership Guide: Retail Reviews

Edited by: Angelica on 8/24/18

We’re back with another lesson for you this week and it’s all about using the Retail Review Sharing Tool!

For some Missions, you’ll have the opportunity to write a review on a retailer’s website (such as,, etc.) This is a helpful way to share your opinion with other consumers who are considering buying a product, and earns you 50 points.

The Four Steps To Retail Reviews

Retail Review

1. Form Your Opinion

We are sure you can think of what to say about the product, but here are a few questions to ask yourself if you’re not sure where to start:

  • What are the product’s advantages?
  • Is there something you don’t like so much?
  • Do you think the product is well-priced?
  • How easy or difficult was the product to use?
  • Did you like the color/smell/form/taste/etc.?
  • What surprised you the most about the product?
  • Do you have any recommendations for what the brand should change?
  • Did you share this product with family and friends? What did they think?

2. Write Your Review

Once you have formed your opinion on the product, it’s time to share what you think! Here are some tips for writing your review:

  • Write your review from your own personal point of view.
  • ALWAYS mention that you received the samples for free (unless you purchased the product post-Mission). Just paste a phrase such as this at the end of your review:

“I received PRODUCT NAME for free. Opinions are 100% my own.”

  • Check your spelling and grammar. Make use of spell-checking tools.
  • Write as much as you want! This is your own honest opinion and feedback—and that counts.

3. Post Your Review

We will give you specific instructions for where you can submit your review. Some of the most common retailer websites are Amazon, Walmart, Walgreens, and Target.


4. Submit Your Review

Submit your review on your Mission Page and allow up to 7 days for us to read and approve it. The most common reasons why we would need to reject your review is if it did not mention the word “free” or if the screenshot is too small, making it difficult to read.

  19. Smiley360Alice andrew2angalia I was unable to accept my first mission.  It was for tampons and I had a hysterectomy a couple years ago.  I hope that won’t keep me from obtaining new missions!

  20. Im new to smiley360 hopefully i do everything thats asked of me correctly and then i get to sample products. So far i like the site. I found this via another free site.

  21. On the Retail Reviews it says to post review for 4 diiferent places and to Amazon for the 14ct & 42ct. Do I just copy/paste the same review or do we do a different review each time? Should I wait for review to be approved before shàring with all 4 companies.

  22. It’s my first review and on the retail review, I keep getting a fail 🙁 I  should have it in today! I just can’t get it done and I am so disappointed.
