    I was in the middle of looking at customer reviews to help me gather information for my article, and I noticed a customer who left an amazon link to another product that (s)he recommended.

    I was just wondering if it's possible to promote Amazon affiliate links in customer reviews, because it might be able to give you a little passive income.

    I've seen this too, its not that common so you could get away with it before its more known.

    I won't risk my account doing that because they can track where the clicks came from to make the sale.Amazon will soon crack down on this if its widespread because it damages creditability of customer reviews.

    One of my friend did the same and made like $800 in a single month but his account got terminated before payout.

    So its like if you make little money then its okay but when the cheques will be bigger than they will check things to confirm things.
