Ciao! — The Perfect Resource this Season
Holiday shopping means decision making.
What items on the kids’ lists do we go for, and what do we decide against? What gift would our spouse like? What brand should we choose, and what model offers the most useful features?
These days, with every dollar counting, we want to make sure we are making the best decisions possible.
Now, if you are like me, decision making usually means researching online and getting people’s opinions. It is invaluable to be able to instantly call up honest feedback to help sort out what we should buy and what we should maybe skip.
So, when a site like Ciao! opens its virtual doors, I hop, skip and jump my merry little self over to have some help making my shopping decisions. I want to know what people who own the items I am considering think about them.
Ciao! is a unique site that offers consumer reviews — and pays users who post popular reviews.
You can find a review on just about any product you are in the market for. From electronics to beauty products they have you covered with reviews written by average people who have used them and just want to share their experience.
Registration at Ciao.com is free and when you actively participate in the community by offering reviews on products, you can earn a small cash payment every time another member rates your review as “helpful”, “Very helpful” or “exceptional”.
While you’re reading reviews at Ciao!, you will have access to prices on the products from over 2000 retailers as well, so you know that you are getting the best and most current price.
I recently registered at Ciao.com and even wrote a review on a Nintendo DS. It was shockingly simple! You can see my review here. While you’re there, sign up and write a review too!
Jackson has a Nintendo DS Lite and he LOVES it! They are definitely the “it” item among all of his friends at school too.
We choose the Nintendo DS Lite as the prize for this contest because we thought it was a great example of the kind of product you would want to research – and review! – at Ciao. When I buy games, electronics and other tech items, I ALWAYS get feedback online before purchasing.
Here’s how to enter:
First, sign up for Ciao and submit a review for a product you own and use.
