Mamas making money on GPT websites.... - Page 3

Also, has anyone had trouble with the bargain.com offer not crediting?
Yep, I did Bargain.com I and never got credit for it. Wish I had known that you had to stay on past the 7 day trial.

Here's a quote from an Admin at IPz:
"You CANNOT do both Bargain I and Bargain II. Bargain II is just the instant version of Bargain I for a lesser value. The Bargain I is at a higher payment but it takes 8+ days to receive credit. Bargain II credits within the day."

I am not sure about Bargain Homes and Bargain Auto, but am going to ask.

I actually did post on the IPz forums about doing Pricestore when I had already done Bargain.com. You CAN do it. It is considered a separate offer. Link to my thread

HTH a little!

What is the deal with repeating offers on different sites??
Quote:
You MAY NOT do the same offer on different websites! This will get you banned.
Ok, so far I've only done freebies on DBP, but the surveys repeat (in that you click "yes" or "no" to info/samples from the *same companies* : ITT, Orlando Dream vacations, University of Phoenix, etc. You mamas know what I'm talking about, right)

So my question is, does "no repeating offers" mean that you have to select different "yes's" on each freebie you do?

Or did the above quote only apply to actual offers where you order something, a monthly service or whatever?

thanks! Somehow I keep getting bogged down, I think I overthink these things. Like I keep pondering, how does a company make money by doing this or that, going through these website?

I don't think you have to select a different "yes" on those listings within the freebies. (In fact, do you ever really have to select a "yes?" I think most of them have that "skip" at the bottom).

Even if you select a "yes" on one of those, I think you are taken to a page where you are just viewing the information, you are not actually submitting your name to request that more information be sent to you.

You also shouldn't do the same freebie on more than one site. I know Christina at DealBarbiePays had a problem with someone doing this and they got banned from the site.

oh! thanks, I thought you had to say yes to at least one choice on each page

But if, say, under My Insider Deals, there are 10 freebie surveys - can you do them all? Or do all of the freebies under one category count as one?

You can do them all, but you have to use a different email address each time and don't do more than 1 in that group/"family" in the same day.

ETA: You might want to get an email address and then complete 1 freebie from each of those freebie "families." Use that same email address to complete 1 freebie from Winning Surveys, 1 from Consumer Beat, 1 from YSR, 1 from My Insider Deals, etc. Then, after you've done that, a few days later, use a *different* email address to do the process all over again...1 freebie from each family.

I actually do many in the same group on the same day and my offers approve like crazy at barbie. For example, I did 14 Win surveys back to back last night. All instant approvals and they all approved within seconds after completing the last page. I made $14 in less than 30 minutes.

I never wait days between freebies. I do them daily... from every group .... always doing more than one from each group and usually several times a day.

If you do many from the same group and see that too many are getting denied then you might want to try spreading them out. I have seen this advice given by forum moderators to help those struggling with freebie approvals. I tried spreading them out when I was working on freebies at TT and it made no difference. I still rarely had approvals on freebies. Since working at barbie I do as many as I possibly can in a 24 hour period... not even concerning myself with how many from each group. The more I complete in a day the more money I make by the end of the month. It works out incredibly well for me.

I'm all out of YSR freebies. I did every single one in one night and every one of them approved. I was all out of WIN surveys until 2 days ago when she added more. I've almost done all of them again.

The freebies and I use to have a love/hate relationship but I actually think they are starting to like me now :

How I did 14 win surveys using the same email address:

for example I started off using oakcreek@gmai on the first Win surveyl...
then oak.creek@gmail was used on the 2nd win survey
then o.akcreek@gmail
oakc.reek@gmail
oakcre.e.k@gmail
oak.c.reek@gmail

..... get the picture? A period(s) within the email address keeps it valid but makes it appear different to the site. So you don't have to create a million new email addresses to complete each freebie. I use one email address until I feel I've exhausted it ... then I move on to the next email address. I plug that particular email address into my Roboform then all I have to do is pop in the period(s).

And if you are seeing "skip" at the bottom of a freebie offer then you are doing more than you have to do on that particular offer. Those offers require that you submit the 2nd page...then you are done. You don't have to proceed until you see all the "yes", "no" bubbles with "skip" at the bottom.

pm me for a tutorial. I'll send you all the tips/tricks that I personally use which has made a world of difference in my monthly earnings from free offers.

Dana ~ It just occured to me that perhaps you will think I was insinuating that you were giving poor advice. That's not at all what I meant. I just wanted to share that it *might* work for others to do it the way I do it. I was cautious about doing too many freebies at one time but doing many each day can work out well and is at least worth a try imo.

Yeah, I've got all the calls coming to my NetZero private number, too, but I have been listening to the messages and wondered if I need to call all these people back.

rubelin ~ You do not need to return their calls.
post #50 of 895
Dana thanks for the advice on Bargain.com. I, too, wish I had known about the 8 days. There are so many offers that seem to be from the 'same' faimly, and I am leary to do more than one, as I don't want to be viewed as a 'cheat', so I am just trying to be cautious. Thanks again!

And great tips guys on the freebies.. I have the WORST luck with them (and DBP for some reason, and i SO want to love this site!!!) , but I am going to try some of your tips and see if I do better.

Oh, can some of you high earning Mamas share how much time you spend on GPT sites each week? And do you do mostly trials, freebies or referals? I would LOVE to make like $500 or so a month, but don't have a ton of time and can't get into referrals. Just want to see what is a realistic goal for me. So far this month I have maybe $150 coming my way, mostly from $1 trials, and I usually 'work' about 1.5 hours most nights. This is my first month, though, so I know I will get more efficient as times goes. Thanks Mamas!

Winning Survey ?

How do you get the Winning Surveys to complete?

I was doing 1 day for about a week at DBP but stopped because none of them cleared. So I did 1 at IP a few days ago but it hasn't cleared either.

I cleared my cookies and used different email address each time.

PS Does anyone have a gmail invite I can use?

Thank you
Kitten

fusioncash worked!
I hope it keeps working though..today I got a check from them in the mail, not much just $39, (I do most of the offers at IPz.)
I'm gonna keep doing FC$ see if I have luck next month too
post #54 of 895
ok so i have a question, on dbp the freebies section has one cat. that says others, is at the end of the groups and i was wondering if on all of those i can use the same addy or use different ones, it looks as if they are from various companies

thanks!!!

also, can someone tell me where to try after trying dbp? which ones are the best ones to do freebies and how do i know that i didn't do the freebies there on dpb already?

thanks again

Great news Mama!
post #56 of 895
Oh, wow, I didn't see that there was a page 3 last night. My post about phone calls looks silly in the middle of a bunch of answers to my question

I am really pissed about the Bargain thing. They really need to say that you must pay for an entire month. So now am I not allowed to do anymore Bargain offers?? (I did Bargain homes, and wanted to try Bargain Cars) Dang, that was a $22.50 payout! At least I know why it's never cleared...

I haven't had trouble with Winning Surveys, but I did have 6 Member Promotions surveys get declined at DBP. If I send a support ticket, will they tell me why they didn't clear??
post #57 of 895
you can go to your denied list and click on "reason" and it will usually say "no credit given" or something similar. Christina won't really know why other than the advertiser refused to offer credit. We all have offers that are denied. It's inevitable.
post #58 of 895
rubelin ~ the rule for Bargain on *some* sites is that you must keep the service for at least 1 week before cancelling. This is not the case on all sites. I have referrals who received credit in as little as 24 hours.

No worries I actually tried your tip of using the emails with the periods in them to help with the freebies crediting. I got 13 Winning Surveys credited so far today!

You should be able to use one email address on other freebies as long as they are not listed in a freebie "family".

Kitten, PM me your email address and I will send you a Gmail invite.

I spend probably 2 hours a day doing it...sometimes more when I am researching which offers pay the best and which ones I want to do. Last month, I did mostly trial offers and ones that had the highest payouts for the money it required. Some of the offers I completed were: Advantage Language, Onlingo, Video Professor, Orexis, True.com.

Yep, me too. They need to state that in the offer preview on the website. I am still trying to find out if I can now do Bargain Homes & Bargain Auto.

Instant Profitz is another good site and one that I trust. I don't know how good they are for freebies crediting, but their payouts on other offers are high.

Sherrie, thanks for the tutorial! I just realized that I missed out on a few extra bucks by doing some trials through DBP instead of Fusioncash...grrr..
I thought I remember reading something about a site that compares the best offers from various websites...where is that?
