About dam time. Was making me kinda hate Amazon for allowing this. So misleading!

Amazon’s review system allowed for a deceptively biased loophole: users could receive free products from companies in exchange for an “honest” review.
Starting immediately, Amazon will no longer allow reviews from customers who have received free products in exchange for reviews, no matter how they’re marked.

Finally, i hope this takes care of the issue and there becomes no loophole. This was abused so much.  Users who had a high review count were the ones offered the free products in exchange for a "glowing" review.
