Its good to try to get free copies of affiliate products. Sometimes they'll give it to you, often you might need to rub your reputation in their face a bit first. If your site is up and going and looks good, they might be more inclined as well. But I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you :)
Any good affiliate program manager should be able to provide you with sample reviews or other affiliate material if you ask. Otherwise you can do a trawl around the internet and see what other people are saying, or reword sales copy to sound like a review. That's a bad karma way of doing things, and often your visitors will be able to smell a sham review, but sometimes its the only way.
If they do send you reviews, make sure you reword them a little bit before posting them on your site. Chances are, they would have sent that review to other affiliates as well ;)
