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.
