Text from the Amazon email:

This is Justin from the Amazon Communities team.

To write a Customer Review you must have used your account to make $5.00 in purchases with a valid credit or debit card from Once your order has shipped, you’ll be able to write your first customer review. (Prime subscriptions and promotional discounts don’t count toward the $5.00 minimum.)

This means that the requirement to post reviews on Amazon for any for any item at any time is $5.00. You only need to make this requirement once for your account to be eligible to post reviews.

I hope this helps.

We’d appreciate your feedback. Please use the links below to tell us about your experience today.

Best regards,
Justin W.
