Buzzillions reviews come from real people - not paid reviewers. Buzzillions works with a robust network of retailers to identify people who have purchased a product and then request a review to be written. Buzzillions then collects and analyzes the reviews to help consumers with the decision making process.
Buzzillions is a one-stop product reviews site for consumers, providing reviews and recommendations from real product users for over a million products in thousands of categories, including consumer electronics, apparel, sporting goods, health & beauty, and home & garden. These reviews and recommendations help guide consumers to make informed product decisions that meet their specific needs and uses, with product reviews from people like them, who are verified to have purchased the product. Buzzillions verifies the purchase by partnering with hundreds of retailers who actually send out the surveys to known customers. Retail partners include Home Depot, Best Buy, Drugstore.com and The Sports Authority. Buzzillions is owned by its parent company, PowerReviews.
