Hi! Hey all - I won the dbp contest in October!!! (The first one, total earnings) I made $1688 in October just on dbp! I (and my doubting hubby as well) was amazed. Thanks for all of the help in learning about this mamas!
I just started in Sept - with freebies. I was getting very frustrated from denied offers and just about to give up completely when I decided to take my $40 from that month and put it into trials. Suddenly I was number one in the contest so I just kept going all month! What I learned: I have a McAfee security center thing on my computer and I learned that this also blocks cookies. So I have to keep cookies enabled in my browser and also turn off the "privacy service" portion of McAfee when I do offers. I can keep my McAfee spam blocker, firewall, and virus proctection active. This has helped a lot with my freebie offers. As has the gmail account.
Also, I would advise people not to use their own credit cards. I did this for a few offers in a panic between simon accounts, because I was so hyped-up to stay ahead in the contest, and already I've had charges that I did not expect or authorize. I had them reversed but if you live paycheck to paycheck like I do, an unauthorized charge can throw you into serious trouble of you are not paying attention. I have only had two companies deny my simon account, and I did a ton of offers last month!
I am taking a break this month - maybe doing a few here and there but I was so crazy doing offers last month that I didn't even get to read mdc! That's bad.
: It was fun though!
