Treasure Trooper:

So Treasure Trooper isn't exactly a loyalty program.  It's more a "get paid to do stuff, like submit an email address (Don't use your main one! or survey" type site.  In the past several years, I've earned $1,869.04 (give or take) from it.  Please see the full disclosure section at the bottom after reading through the details.

Here's how it works: There is a list of tasks, which range from signing up for a newsletter to trying out a product.  The easiest offers (sign up for a newsletter types) pay the lowest, starting at $.25 and moving up from there.  The highest are the trial offers, and they can run $20+.  There is also a $100 treasure hunt, a game involving dragons and monthly bonuses, as well as a bunch of other stuff that I can't remember.

What I like

  • It's not a scam and it's free to join.  They pay once per month and have never missed a payment.  They get paid by the advertiser and then pay you, so they accrue for it each month.
  • The admin staff is very active, and there is a chat room if you have questions.
  • If you do an offer that requires a trial period, they're easy to cancel if you don't want to keep it.
What I don't like
  • Offers don't always credit.  Nobody knows why.  They tend to credit very, very well when you first get started, though.  See below for helpful hints.
  • There is a cash shopping area, but it doesn't pay very well.  You are much better off at Mr. Rebates or Big Crumbs.
Helpful hints to get offers to approve:

A lot of the offers are put up by the same advertisers, even if it doesn't say so.  Over time, they'll only credit so many offers to the same email address.
  • Don't use your main email address for offers or you will end up with a lot of spam.  Create a few new email addresses and use those.
  • Clear your cookies/cache after each offer.  It takes two seconds to do but will dramatically increase your approval rate.
  • If you do a trial offer, they can often be cancelled online.  Regardless, put a calendar note in your phone (or datebook; we don't discriminate here) to cancel the offer.
Referral Program: Full Disclosure

Yes, I get a referral bonus if you sign up through my link.  It goes two levels deep, so I get a smaller bonus for my referrals' referrals.  This month, there is an added referral bonus contest, so I may benefit more than usual.

And that's all.  Feel free to hit me with questions, etc.
