No Nascar credit here either, and I too have a support ticket in on it. No charges, though, same as PP; my trial will expire around first of Oct as well.

I did mine at DBP.

FYI, there's a message on the support forum at DBP that says if you completed something that was an instant credit starting 9/2 on, resubmit it. It seems that there have been some problems and that she had to go to manual credits. If you enter Nascar in the search box at DBP, then enter your username, this should get you credited.

I just did this, so I'll come back as soon as I notice the credit. I just thought I'd pass the info along to others...

This is really difficult to answer because the invitations you receive for paid surveys are based on your particular profile. If they are looking for a woman between 28 and 36 who has a son under the age of 3 and your profile fits... then you'll get an invitation. They might even want someone living on the east coast. So a survey company that tends to send me the most invitations might be the company that sends you the least. Does that make sense (i'm tired).

The only way to make decent money through paid surveys is to sign up with many different companies. Doing so increases the number of surveys you qualify to complete... therefore increasing your payments. Surveys generally pay small amounts.. $1, $2, $5.. sometimes as much as $10 and $20 or more. The surveys are generally short but the longer they are the more then usually pay.

I'm a member of probably 60 legitimate survey companies. I get invitations almost daily but I don't qualify for all of them. I might make $10 one week and make $70 the next. I'm averaging over a $100 each month with paid surveys. My survey money always goes into my online ING account for Christmas and it's amazing how those little checks add up over the year. A fantastic way to save for the holidays.

It takes time to sign up for the survey sites because they will need your profile to better fit you with surveys and my list can seem overwhelming. I advise people to break it up.. signing up with a few sites each day until they've joined them all.

send me an email (not a pm please) at steague4@hotmail.com. Put "Survey list" in the title and I will send you my list as well as some helpful tips. Several of the survey sites offer bonuses (cash or points) for referrals so I will also be sending you these referral emails. They will look spam-ish (new word of the week lol) but they are innocent emails sent directly from the survey site that will give you a link inside which you can use to join. Legitimate survey sites will not sell or give away your personal information so you don't need to worry about added email spam and junk.


I'm not going to proof.. just too exhausted and had a very emotionally charged day/night so excuse this post if it's unorganized and full of typos. If you have any other questions about paid survey sites please let me know.

Also... I have quite a few emails and some pm's that I have yet to reply to. I will do this later today after some sleep (it's after 1a.m.) sorry for the delay.

Ok, I took the plunge and tried one of the casino offers on DBP. I did the Monaco Casino offer for about $82.

So let me know if this sounds right.

I deposited $55.00 through neteller
Then they gave me $55.00 bonus
I played away the $55.00 bonus
Then I bet $50.00 of my own money
I ended with $65.00
Then I submited the offer to DBP

So should I keep the money in the casino untill I get credit for the offer? Did I bet enough money to "earn" the offer? How long does it usually take for these offers to work?

Did I do everything right?:

If my calculations are correct I earned $82 from DBP and $12 from the casino so I'm up $94. And I get my original $55 back. Is this right? 'Cuz that rocks!

Now how soon can I get a Simon Card? Do you order them then they are mailed to you, or do you get the numbers online and can use them immediately?
If you order the Simon Gift Account - NOT gift card, it will be delivered via email. It's cheaper that way too. It says it will be sent instantly, but mine always take a couple of days.

Did anyone do the Quick Apply one that pays $6.00?
Yep! Did that one...didn't ask for SSN or credit check!

I'm not sure what step to make next. There are a few things I won't do...the gambling offers and offers where I have to send stuff back in the mail. So what do some of you seasoned GPT mamas suggest to do next?
Most of the free trials you don't have to send back -- Bellaplex, Celladerm, Orexis, Serenity Trial, a lot of the CD offers like SBA Grant, Real Estate Trends, and of course the online stuff like Driving4Dollars, Official Auctioneers, Psychic Realm, etc.

Welcome to the world of Casinos & Bingos

YES! Keep your money in the casino until you get credit for the offer.

Yes, you wagered enough money to get credit - typically, you have to wager the whole deposit amount, but some casinos don't require that. On some, its just like 1/2 the deposit.

In my experience, these offers take around 24 hours to credit. Sometimes faster, sometimes longer.

From what you typed, yes, you are positive $147 -- the $82 you got for doing the offer and the $65 you have left in your bank.

See why I love those offers???
The other day I figured out how much I had spent/made on Casino and bingos so far. It was something like spent $51 to make $571

gift accounts with Simon are only $2 as opposed to $6 for actually card. Their site states that you will receive the email containing your visa # within 24 hours. I have always gotten mine within about 8 hours ... way before 24 hours.

Also, I got charged $6.95 from the Video Prof offer, even though I called and cancelled the morning after I tried to sign up for the offer and was told there was a problem! UGH!! Now I need to call them too.

To you seasoned GPT Mamas, am I running into a string of bad luck with the trials or is this something common and that I would need to keep on if I continue to due trials??

I really love the cash with the trials, but the struggles that I am encountering of late make me think maybe I am better cut out for freebies only. .
I've had issues with a few trials. Not so much with being wrongly charged (only happened maybe twice in over 2 years) but with not getting credit or my card not going through. It happens on rare occasions. For the most part it's a breeze.

The Casino offer is for sure the funnest way I've evr made money! And I like that even if I blow my whole deposit...I still make money because of the insentive pay! I'm going to have to be careful though 'cuz I can see my self getting carried away!

I'm going to try some trials now...I just hope they don't make me send the stuff back, I really despise the Post Office!

I'm trying to get a handle on the casinos & bingos before I take the plunge. Let me see if I've got this right:

If you ended with $65, but deposited $55 to start, doesn't that mean you made $10 from the casino and $82 from DBP, for a total of $92?

Again, that $147 includes the $55 original deposit, for a total gain of $92, right?

And I can only do one casino/bingo in each family, right? Are there ever new families, or if I do one of each now, will I be done with them forever?

Thanks.

Woot! I'm up to $12 in my account thanks to that Quick Apply!

So since I'm reading about all of you guys cashing out... if I DONT make the $20 minimum for the month do I LOSE the money and have to start over or can I let it accrue in my account and then pull it when I feel there is a substantial amount? Cause I don't want to rush to $20 of I dont have to. It's hard enough for me to really get the hang of this If I know I can let the money sit in there for a little while I'll be less paranoid about it all I think... (does that even make sense?: )

Hey, just sign up for the free trial of Stamps.com and print out a whole bunch of postage

Though they seem to be really hard to cancel the trial, it is a good service; I use it for my business

It just accrues in your account and you can cash out whenever you want.

If you use the $5 free postage do you still get to cancel for free?? Also, how do you go about cancelling? I'm having a hard time with it.

I don't have any referrals either, but you can still get pretty good money without them.

About the bingo, just be aware that if you open a Neteller account to do it, they do run a credit check on you. They don't tell you about it when you sign up.

Yes, I am excited for the 20th! Okay it's only $70, but hey that's $70!

I went back and resubmitted the nascar yesterday (thanks for pointing out that forum post), hopefully it credits now. My stamps.com hasn't credited yet either, and it's been more than 7 days since I signed up for it. Hmph.

I don't have any referrals either, you mamas are not alone.

Thanks for pointing that out about the neteller account, I watch my credit report carefully and would have freaked!

I'm afraid to buy another Simon card (still down $25 from the last attempt); does it work the same if you go to say... walmart and buy a prepaid visa? The Simon was so easy the first time, I'm really upset by the last experience! Why oh why couldn't it have just gone through and been normal? I guess it is a problem with my bank card and simon though, first time I did it with Dh's credit card.

You don't need to resubmit offers. The only offers you need to worry about are ones that were automatic credit (no white box to fill in). I had to go back and submit about 20 surveys that she'd changed from automatic to manual.

If you submitted an offer and it disappeared, she's got you connected to that offer.

You'll be fine. Pick up bingo/casino offers that fully reimburse you. For example, you deposit $50 and bet at least $50 (if you're bad like me, that means betting the whole thing-if you're good, you could bet $50 and end up with $300). The company then pays you anywhere from $65-$90 which means that you've been given your $50 back, plus a payment of $15-$40. That's why we love them!

If you're no good (like me!), just don't invest any more than the minimum and you'll be ok!

I have a question about the freebie surveys on DBP. I have 99 denied offers (most from when I first started and hadn't gotten the hang of it yet) can I go back through those offers and try them again? It seems like such a waste, especially since I'm running out of freebie offers.
