37 Genius Inventions With Over 5,000 Reviews on Amazon | 22 Words

If you've ever been burned by a purchase you made online, make sure you always read the customer reviews. Back in high school, I tried ordering a $30 prom dress from China. The reviews said not to do it, but I was young, dumb, naive, and really cheap. Two months and $30 later, my dress arrived in all its hideous glory — and in the end, I wound up having to buy an expensive one anyway.

But you? You're smarter than me. You read the customer reviews, which is why you know that this list of products with more than 5,000 enthusiastic reviews is going to be legit. So what are you waiting for? The reviews are never wrong, and there's not a prom dress in sight to worry about.

We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and Brainjolt may receive a share of sales from links on this page.
