RedHeadedPatti is a PR friendly site and I welcome your pitches. Being lucky enough to have a big family with a wide age range & vastly different interests, we usually have someone suitable to test & review your products or attend your event.
I have the following policies set in place in regards to Product Reviews:
- A disclaimer will be placed on all reviews to clearly indicate that a product was provided to me for free, for the purpose of review.
- I only review family-friendly products and reserve the right to refuse the review if you send a product that was not agreed upon.
- Unless a specific completion date is agreed on, please allow 2 to 6 weeks for your review to be completed.
- An actual product or service is required for all reviews and products sent to be reviewed will not be returned.
- The minimum value of review products must be equal to $50 or more. This value does not apply to Books, DVDs, Apps or CDs.
- I will send you an email with the link to the review once it has been posted.
- I do not accept sample sizes for review. Full-sized products are required so that I can adequately test a product.
- I will not be responsible for any shipping or duty costs. Any packages shipped COD will be refused and returned to sender.
- You are welcome to add a discount or coupon code to the review at no charge. Discounts that require a separate post will be subject to a fee.
- In the case of a negative review, we will contact you by email prior to posting and you have the option to decline the review post.
- RedHeadedPatti reserves the right to not post a review if the terms described above have not been met.
- RedHeadedPatti follows Google Webmaster Guidelines for all links with a material connection.
- Giveaways are free of charge when combined with a Product Review.
- Giveaways without a Product Review may be subject to a fee; please contact me for prices.
- Giveaways are held for a four week period – unless a different time period is agreed upon
- Please inform me what the prize is when setting up the giveaway and let me know who is eligible to enter- US, Canada or Worldwide. Please note giveaways open to US & Canada will allow the majority of the readers to enter.

- The giveaway winner will be selected randomly via the Giveaway Tool and I will notify them by email. When they reply, we will forward you their shipping information.
- The main entry for the giveaway is usually asking the reader to visit your site and comment with their favourite product.
- I can ask the reader to visit your Facebook page, follow on Twitter, subscribe by email to your newsletter, etc. for bonus entries.
- As per Facebook rules, I cannot ask the reader to like your Facebook page share on their personal timeline. It’s fine to have them visit your page or leave a comment on your Facebook wall.
- I cannot ask that the reader make a purchase for a bonus entry as this violates FTC regulations.
- I ask that you ship your prize to the giveaway winner within a reasonable amount of time after the giveaway ends.
- If a gift certificate is offered as the prize its value must cover the cost of at least one item. Discounts will NOT be used as prizes.
- The giveaway prize *must* be at least $25 in value.
