Just so you know I'm telling the truth. Here is my bank statement.Damon, you must be grandfathered in, its 75/ month now.
looks good on paper
Then it's not a real review
I only leave reviews when I get good service. I get that most people don't leave them. I know the more reviews you have the higher you rank in help or whatever but people only read the first few so the rest don't really count except for the rankingHow is it not a real review?
It's just incentivized. People are "busy" so why not reward/respect their time?
Not everyone is a "reviewer". I'd say that most people aren't and given the importance of reviews to a company I don't have an issue with trying to get those that aren't to leave a review.
Not a review but I filled out the applebees survey earlier and did so honestly but the only reason I did is because I got $5 off my next order.........which is actually dumb on my part because I will forget I have it or it will be expired in a year (edit: in a month)when I want applebees again so one of you guys can use it...

It is very rare for me to take time out to leave a positive review even knowing the importance....
Incentivizing, bribing, same thing.Volume counts for more than just possible ranking weight.
When I buy I tend to look for the highest number of positive reviews filtering out items with low numbers of positive reviews (I'll buy something with an average 4.5 stars with 100 reviews before I'll bite on 10 5 star reviews)
no issue with incentivizing .....actually buying reviews is different
Maybe I'm just too cynical in my old age.I guess....if words didn't have definitions or anything. Bribery typically implies something is being given in return for wrong/illegal action.
saying "Hey we will reward you for taking time out of your day to tell others about your experience (for our benefit)" is not that
"Hey we give 25dollar gift cards for 5 star reviews" or even to a much lesser extent the discount before the review giving the feeling of obligation I could maybe see an issue with...
Even when they've provided excellence I find it difficult to take the time to fill out a How Did We Do? Survey, let alone go to Google and leave a review.Incentivizing, bribing, same thing.

I hate to sound callous but what's in it for me? Why should I? I know it helps the server or the business but its just too much effort expended for no reason.
Even offering a discount or to be put into a raffle for a prize doesn't do it for me. $5.00, $10.00 probably not either.
Maybe $25.00 but it depends on what it is because if I feel like it's just added into the price probably not.
Not that don't look for deals. I have a Free pizza on my next order because we have bought 10. And I'm close to a Free salad here at work.

I hadn't thought of that but I bet I could scan it and make some pretty easy. Free salads!!!
