Amazon Vine is a select group of consumers invited by Amazon to review products from manufacturers. The members get to review various items (ranging from food, books, electronics, computer software). I became a member a couple of months ago. It is fun doing product reviews and has become a hobby. A lot of items listed are marketed towards your interests which has triggered buying sprees on my part, unfortunately.

I do not know how many members there are nor how they are selected to join. I have friends who want to join but I don't know how it all works. They just started targeting members with things that interest them the most.

Are you a member? Are you satisfied with the program?

I enjoy the program since I get to read some books before they get released.

I don't know how people are chosen. Are they people with X number of reviews or Y number of helpful reviews or just a random lottery.

That was the question.

I was invited by email and thought, "What do I have to lose?" so I joined.

Sorry I misunderstood your question. No, I have never heard of it.
