Franklin Goose - Earn $5 store credit for each review you write!

Franklin Goose released this promo last week and it's a FANTASTIC deal! Visit the Franklin Goose website and write legitimate reviews on products they carry. For each review you write you will earn a $5 store credit and there is NO limit! Obviously, the reviews are supposed to be of products you own, have used, or have experience with. Franklin Goose is an online store that offers organic, natural, and eco friendly baby/child products. I have been working on my reviews for awhile now and am honestly a little embarrassed by the number of products that we own or have experience with! This is a great way for the company to get their name out there and to promote their site. The Franklin Goose blog stated that they would rather offer credits to potential customer rather than to pay for advertising. If you ask me this was a genius idea! There are now tons of people who know their name and can probably name a number of items they carry! Here's what you have to do -
1. Visit the Franklin Goose site
2. Register for an account (you will see the option in the upper right hand corner of the screen)
3. Begin browsing the items
4. When you see an item you can write a legitimate review on click the 'Add Your Thoughts' link
5. Write your legitimate review
6. Click save

Franklin Goose has stated on both their blog and their facebook page that there has been such a great response to this promo that they are behind with approving the reviews. They stated that they are 3-4 days behind at this point. Once your review has been approved you will see the credit show up in your account. Once your credit posts you will see a box in your account details that will say "Store Credit". Please be patient, like I said it will take a few days for your credits to show. They are also offering an additional promo that if you decide to 'bank' your credits for 6 months you will earn an additional 10% and if you "bank" for a year you will earn 20%! They offer $5 flat rate shipping and you can even use your credit to pay for your shipping! I began writing reviews this past Friday and have not received my credits yet but I'm not concerned. Many people who began reviewing when this promo began have already received their shipments of products that they bought with their credit!

This offer expires March 31 2010. Please remember to be honest and to write legitimate reviews. They will be going through all the reviews and approving them. If you've used or own a lot of eco friendly baby products there will probably be lots for you to review! That means lots of credit which means lots of free product!

Here is was Franklin Goose said on their blog about why they are doing this promo...
"many people have asked why were are doing this. The answer is simple. We believe in our site. When we consider all the ways to let people know, we prefer to spend $500,000 on giving money to the people who need it in a creative way rather than to an ad agency for a series of magazine ads."
