That's what sucks about App Store reviews!
Promo codes are used with new iTunes accounts by developers to give themselves glowing reviews. They're not hard to spot. Just click on an reviewer's name in iTunes on your desktop and you get to read all their reviews. You know you got one when you see one review, reviews for that developer's apps only and/or a bunch of free apps downloaded to cover up.
whatever, I can use the $500 to replace the 3GS i preordered..
