I appreciate the information so far but I’m not certain my question has been answered in its entirety... In my experience with the power user program I’ve never been offered a discounted item—they’ve always been free samples. Additionally, this difference appeared directly after I, and fellow Power Users, experienced a snag in the Amazon Reviews.
I really appreciate the opportunities that Anker has afforded me as a power user, and I enjoy being able to test and review products. I’m just simply trying to find out if my experience is: unique, part of a new program, or business as usual.
