        Why? I've had a pretty good experience with them.

        • +2 votes

          I had a not at fault accident. Other person was NRMA. Coles took 2 months and still hadnt paid out (called them daily). Ended up contacting NRMA and they advise coles was yet to make contact. They just don't pay out in a crash. They are the 2nd worst rated insurer in Australia for a reason. They also have a high number of FOS complaints over similar. It's just not worth waiting months on end, if they can't get their shit together

        • +1 vote

          @Pharmacy: I had comprehensive insurance with them and lodged an at fault total loss claim; they paid out relatively quickly, maybe I was lucky!

          I did have to follow up a few times because communication wasn't great at times, but you get that with all companies usually (not excusing it).

          @John Kimble: Yeah maybe. IDK ay. I'm not going to risk it again. My experience was bad and 9 months later and some lose ends (car hire etc) still aren't fully resolved). If your happy then that's great, but too may people reported a bad experience for me to risk it again. I'll pay the extra $300 a year for fully coverage with NRMA

          @jdogg: I cannot remember as it was awhile back, but it was one of those small companies (like progressive, but not progressive). Sorry it was like 8 months ago I checked. I do remember many of the suncorp groups insurance products also took a beating (AAMI etc) and Woolworths was alittle shady. I choose to stop looking and stick with NRMA for awhile, as it what I know

          Last time I called asked where they were located because they didn't seem to understand the places I was talking about. Ans: South Africa.

        •  

          @Pharmacy: the irony is that both Coles Insurance and NRMA are owned/underwritten by IAG.

    Doesn't list the categories on the incentive page

    Yes it does, it clearly shows the pictures - those are the categories. So websites are out, for example

      Hi there,

      You can read our privacy policy here http://www.productreview.com.au/i/privacy.html

      Any proof of purchase documents you choose to upload are not seen by anybody outside our Moderation Team, and you can block out personal information like your address, as long as we are still able to verify that the document proves you purchased the product you reviewed. We never provide this information to the company you are reviewing (or anyone else for that matter).

      Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

        Proof of purchase is not required for every review. It's possible for all 4 reviews you submit to have proof of purchase as optional.

        •  

          Thanks for the info, rep.

          So, I posted four reviews, 3 purchases from 2015 and one from 2012 - so their shouldn't be any issue with this promotion seeing as I don't have the receipts?

          @tomsco @Lorindor: We're not here to play hardball on every condition for this promotion, we'd rather give someone who is doing the right thing a gift card than try to catch them out on a technicality. As long as the products are still for sale they should be fine, 1 discontinued product shouldn't exclude you from the incentive.

          The only thing to be aware of is that sometimes reviews will be auto-published straight away, but rejected later once our Moderation Team has a chance to look at it manually. You will typically be notified if this happens.

          Tomsco your reviews looked fine to me at a glance, but I'd have to wait for our Mods to check over them before making any guarantees.

          I bought 4 basic appliances in February 2016, which are all included in selected categories.

          How can I make sure that this exclusion is legit (considering that I bought all 4 appliances 17 months ago (instead of 12 months stated in T&C)? Just wanna make sure before I took all the troubles to find my invoice (I'm sure I still keep it for warranty purpose) and write 4 reviews for $20 egift card.

      I tried to review IMB after the $50 scam but they rejected the review. I reviewed a fridge after being offered a $5 coles gift card for 2 reviews. Just noticed it in my dodgy enmail address. So you'll probably score the gift card even for low effort.

          I can send an email now - also one question,

          I have previously submitted this before and was ignored.

          My issue with your website is the blatant fake 'verified' reviews by China Southern airlines. They went from being one of the worst airlines in the world to now having over 4000 fake 'verified' reviews, why are you not doing anything about this blatant scam?

          http://www.productreview.com.au/p/china-southern-airlines.ht...

          http://www.productreview.com.au/c/international-airlines.htm... <— go here and it will show all reviews for all airlines in the world. See how all the major airlines have 20 to about a few hundred at most.

          why does ProductReview allow this cheating and vote manipulation to happen and when anyone brings it up get ignored?

          allowing this vote manipulation on the site pretty much invalidates every single other review on your website.

          it goes as far as the Q&A section down the bottom people asking stuff like

          Do readers really think the reviews given 5 out of 5 are real!!!!! Think again. What is the real review?

          and people complaining that negative reviews aren't even published for this specific airline. seems very shonky.

        • +9 votes

          @wingwang: Sure, this a good question, and we get asked similar ones all the time.

          So in general, most people don't think to write a review for a product or service they receive (whether it was good or bad), but some will do so if asked. If you assume that most people are happy with what they receive, then it stands to reason that the more of your customer pool you ask, the more positive reviews you will probably get.

          We have both automatic and manual procedures in place to analyse the meta-data of all our reviews, and the reviews that have been approved have passed our checks (for example, being submitted from an Australian IP address). We look for individual red flags on each review, as well as overall patterns in review submission, and we reject a lot of reviews. Obviously there are laws and ACCC guidelines we have to be compliant with, but more importantly we want to be a place where people can go to get reliable information, and to have their opinion heard.

          The answer to "Why does China Southern have such a high rating?" is just that they ask a lot of their passengers to write a review. When you consider the number of people that fly China Southern each year, if even a tiny fraction of those people write a review, you're looking at thousands of reviews. This is obviously something that someone in their Customer Relations department has decided is important, and they've created a system to request reviews and implemented it company-wide.

          Despite any negative perception of China Southern, if you book a flight easily, you get from A to B on time, and the service is good (relative to what you paid), then there's no reason for you to have a negative experience. As passengers get off the plane, an attendant hands them a card and asks them to write a review them. They only need a few passengers on each flight to submit a review to start racking up big review numbers.

          Many businesses use a similar method to garner huge numbers of reviews, for example Booktopia or Youfoodz. If you can email every single customer and say "Hey, I hope you liked our product/service, click here to write us a review", you're going to start getting a lot of reviews. Many businesses include this with their confirmation of purchase emails, while others email all their recent customers at regular intervals. When you see pages that have a lot of reviews in a short space of time from users with a single review, it's likely they came from an outreach campaign similar to this. It would not surprise me that if a company like Tiger Air started emailing every single passenger asking for a review, they could get to a 4+ rating.

          I hope this clears up your concerns, let me know if you would like any more information.

          Cheers

      Hi rodie,

      We have procedures in place to detect and remove reviews we believe to be non-genuine. While I can't go into detail about these, I think most people on here would be surprised at how thorough we are.

      We tried to choose a lot of varied categories for this promotion so that nobody would have problems writing 4 genuine reviews.

      Thanks

    • +3 votes

      I don't really see the point of anyone doing that. I can't honestly see your average person doing that. As humans, we all like our say and generally like to know we are helping each other (I mean its what ozbargain is about). I'm quite sure 100% of all Australians have used 4 products in their life. It's also logic, that its simple to talk about, what you know. I also notice with product review (I have been a member for a year and abit), it is very easy to see trends. I'm sure these guys know their stuff (mathematical algorithms or such) and would be able to pick things up.

      I also did some reviews before the promo, just because I think Australians need to know. $20 is a great bonus. I will be alot more keen to check them out in future, before trying a new service or product.

      Also as a ex-mechanic, this site is gold (in alot of areas) before buying a car. Common themes show common issues.

    Hi Store Rep,
    I have just submitted 4 reviews in the given categories. However the site is still asking for 2 more, as 2 of the products I reviewed, while certainly in the correct categories, had not been reviewed before. Please advise?

    •  

      i have this problem too.. in the end i submitted 5 instead but it only capture as 4.

      I completed several reviews, one of which was a review for a Breville Smart Oven Pro (http://www.productreview.com.au/p/breville-the-smart-oven-pr...). According to ProductReviews, one of my reviews didn't count. Searching through the list under the "Oven" category I noted that the smart oven pro wasn't listed. The other reviews for products I wrote were all listed in their category.

      So, for your product to count, I think it has to be actually listed as one of the products in the list when you click on an eligible category . In the Breville Oven's case, it appears the smart oven is listed as a "Benchtop Oven", while the eligible ovens are all listed as "Freestanding Ovens" or "Wall Ovens", which is why it didn't appear on the list and hence why it didn't count it would seem. My theory only - I could also be wrong and they just have a weird system of counting eligible reviews.

      If the items you reviewed weren't already listed on our site, they'll have to be checked and manually approved before being published. This may take a day or two, if your review still isn't published by then email us at promotions@productreview.com.au and let us know.

      •  

        Thanks store rep. Just to double check. The Breville Smart Oven Pro is listed on your site, but is not listed as one of the ovens in the "Oven" category in the promotional link. Would this cause it to not be automatically counted as one of the 4 eligible reviews? If this is the case, do we have to contact you about this for our review to count?
