Yes Happy March! May March be our best paid month yet!!!

With the zip submit surveys, do we just submit our zip and that's it? I submited and then did the next page where I put it my info with name, email etc. And then submitted that and closed out the box. Was that right?

Also, when I log on to cashduck, and clear cookies between offers, I check to make sure I'm not deleting the cashduck.com cookie but I don't see one??? Is it labeled as something else?

I only did $77 for February. I just didn't feel very motivated. I'm going to try to hit $250 for March. I could use that cash a week before the new baby is born!

I have only used cashduck to date and I'm starting to run out of offers to do. Quite a few of the companies already have me entered in their system so they won't let me do trials, even though I haven't done them before. Is there anything I can do about that?

I'm thinking about trying another GPT site but I'm not sure which one to move to. I love my duck.

Why would that happen? I was wondering if i should respond to the junk mail in my gmail when it comes (offers) but maybe I shouldn't because they will already have me in their database?

This has been holding me back. How do you keep track of what you have done? I keep worrying that I'll end up doing the same kind of offers.

Silly question... How do you know if your survey goes thru. I did a few (before reading last months posts) on Panda and saw that I had an account section with $ status. Once I got word that Panda is the pits I did two surveys in the freebee section of Cashduck but never got any response on getting paid for them.

Can anyone tell that I don't know what the heck I'm doing ?

(well for gpt standards anyways ) i will still have some cancelations i will have to do throughout the next week or 2 but at least i am not adding anything more to my plate. i might do some freebies ( i still don't know how in the world you can do $500 on freebies only).

Panda sucks arse bigtime!! I have $61 cleared and $90 pending...been that way since November--*before* someone told me about how Panda never pays out!! You have to have $100 to cash out.

what phone number have y'all been using for sleep slim? There was a 1800 # on the terms page when I signed up but now there's a 949 area code number. I called it and it's for an office. :

I think the company recognizes your CC. At least that is what happened with me.

I keep a spreadsheet of all the offers I do, freebies and trials. I also restrict what sites I do freebies on. Helps keep it less confusing.

My experience so far has been that if I am going to get freebie credit, it comes pretty quickly. If it pends over a few days, it is not going to credit. Have you read any tutorials? There are a few mamas here that have written some. I can pm you some tips if you want some. Just let me know. Once you learn how to do freebies, your approval rating should increase.

Also, not all your offers are going to credit. Freebies are iffy some times. People usually find that some freebie groups credit better for them than others. I suggest you do one from each group and see what credits and what doesn't credit within a few hours. Maybe try the IYO (in you opinion) surveys. They seem to credit nicely for a lot of people. I think there are 2 pages to submit. When you get to all the "click yes or no for this offer" you can exit out and click "completed."

Just be sure to clear your cookies before and after you do the offers. And only do one or two at a time. Also, doing the "period trick" will help. I posted the period trick on the Feb thread.....

The period trick:
take a gmail addy like [email protected] (only make yours long so you get more use out of it). that is what you sign up at gmail with.

then when you do a freebie, use it one time that way. next freebie, type in [email protected], then [email protected] and so on. You can add many periods, like [email protected] or [email protected].

If you have to enter your email addy on the GPT site, you can just copy and paste the one you used, periods and all.

Do I need to sign up for different emails through gmail, or does gmail read the email addy the same with or with out the period?

I hope that makes sense, I don't know how else to word it.

TIA

Just sign up your main addy. Gmail reads it the same with or without the periods.

Example:
You would sign up for a gmail account with this: [email protected]

Then you would use that ([email protected]) the first time you did a freebie survey. Freebie survey #2, you would do this-- [email protected] It will still go to your gmail account under the addy [email protected]. YOu can put a period between every letter in the "noperiodsinmygmailaddy" part of the addy and gmail will still accept the emails into your [email protected] account. Does that make sense?

I have gotten Really creative with my gmail addy! i have a 20 letter addy and do you know how many different combos I've come up with??? 229! And I'm thinking I could easily com up with 100 more!

Iv'e been getting many good tips from the mamas here, and I want to say thank you. I've only done about 20 IYO surveys so my earnings are only at $11 bucks or so. I did do a couple other surveys but they have been pending since yesterday, so I'm starting to feel like they won't. I did them at MPC. I also was totally confused because I was going all over the place with them, following all the yes or no questions : Anyways, I finally have a tip of my own

My tip will help you keep track of what addy you are using. I started with writing my addy on a piece of paper and then started marking up the dots as I went. The trouble is, that I would end up with dots all over the place, and if I left to come back later, I wasn't 100% sure of where I left off, so I did this today:

In a word file. I wrote my gmail addy. Then I copy and pasted it 100 times to start. I started putting periods in the different places and so far have come up with over 200. I will go back and do the rest when I have time. Then I printed out the ones I finished. Now I have a sheet will all the addys I will use and can just go down the list and cross out as I use them. No more wondering where i was going with my periods. They have already been figured out prior

So what do you all think?

I think Song of Joy has the lowdown on SleepSlim if you need it.

I sure did and she helped bail me out!

Do you moms with the paid siggys think they're worth it? Does it generate that many referrals for you? Just considering adding one with my Feb. earnings...

Ok ladies,

I have been deleting threads due to all of the talk about cancellations. IT is against the GPT rules that are posted in the sticky above.

From here on out, I will have no problems simply removing the entire thread for posting about cancellations.

Wanna keep the threads, then play by the rules.

Thanks
Shannon

I'm not seeing the post I had on this thread... did I violate something? I don't even know what cancellations are, can you be more specific? Like saying a company that didn't credit?

You were asking when you should cancel a trial to get credit. And that is not allowed. You are only supposed to sign up for trials that you are genuinely interested in. Not sign up for trials with the intention of cancelling just to get the cash reward. That would be considered fraud if not borderline fraud I would think.

I kinda took last month off after doing $2400 in January- it burnt me out. I only did $120 in Feb. So I'm picking back up on it for this month. I saw some of the sites were going to run contests, so I'm going to take a look at it all and figure out what I want to do.

Jumping in the thread!!

I cashed out a little over $600 for February - I'm hoping to break that for March!

Also - my big news...myself and Sarah, the admin at Wild4Cash, opened a new website to help everyone build their downlines!! Members can get referrals for free by earning them or they can buy them for as low as $2.50 for 10 referrals! I was nervous about taking on a website in addition to what I face each day as a Mom of three so young...but it's been working out really well. Virtually stress-free as of now! I won't post the url here, as I imagine that's quite against the rules.

Can someone tell me - is Agoloco a paid to search site???

Just curious what other's thoughts on the new GPT alliance are...

or will that discussion also be against UA? I'm never sure when things will get censored here.

I should also say, that of that $2400, I only cleared about $1000 so far, as I didn't get credit for about 90 non-free offers that I did- I've requested manual credit, but I don't expect to get paid for them, to be right honest. I did do some offers that net $0 after clearing (ie., they charge you $10 shipping and the reward is $10), because I was interested in trying the product, and I've been pleasantly surprised with some of the offers I've really liked. The Scholastic offers are wonderful and my kids have loved them, especially the Doctor Seuss and Nick Jr book clubs. I was very happy with Bodyshape Hydroderm, some of the coffee services, Netflix, and others. And, of course, I've been overcharged for some things and had other things charged incorrectly or wrongfully, some products haven't shown up but I've been charged, all that. You know what I mean- it a paperwork headache to figure out exactly what you did clear and keep up with it all to make sure nothing slips through the cracks. And I kept very careful records and a calendar for each offer. So I burnt out on it. That's why I didn't do much in Feb.

I definitely couldn't keep it up at that pace all the time. Just the stress of having to deal with the companies who don't give accurate contact information so you have no way to reach them or have deceptive practices (like only having a voicemail box for customer service and not returning any calls or the phone numbers being disconnected and e-mails not returned) was a major issue. There was one trial that I didn't receive at all and CS couldn't be reached, but they charged my CC anyway. Then our credit card number was stolen and someone charged $5300 to an overseas company on it, and that card had only been used on a handfull of GPT trials in that month and hadn't been used in the last year prior to that, so you know it had to be involved in that. Major, major headaches.

Long story short, I'll never do another trial on a non-prepaid card. I have absolutely learned my lesson, and I don't mind at all having to pay the small fee for the card and the per-transaction fee- it's cheaper than the headache caused by one mis-charge by a company that you can't reach or has terrible CS.

Bottom line, I'll never do another month like that again, and I'll do more research on each offer before doing business with a company, and avoid offers that don't have a good reputation, no matter how much I'm interested in trying their product. There are some good websites out there to help you know which offers are legitimate and which ones are a headache.

Well congrats to you for doing so well! I hope that some of the non credited stuff credits for you. You did a lot of work!
I hope to start having the kids be watched for about 3 hours a week so that I can do stuff all at once...cancels, sign ups, organization, emails, cc information, and post office runs etc. I want to make sure that I am going to keep having chances to make a lot though too!!

I need to migrate over to mpc and do my next month there i think. I have done DBP in jan and i am just not liking the non crediting stuff. i have more denials there than anything! I do like her site because she has a MILLION offers though. I mostly did my work at RHC in feb and don't feel like theres much left to offer.

What sites are you using? I know the basic ones but I am seeing some new acronyms and not sure what they are. I also use Instant Profitz but haven't really gone after it. Reviews anyone???

I'm signed up at Cash Duck, Monster Pays Cash, Pocket Cash, Treasure Trooper, Deal Barbie Pays, Moo Money, Cash on Tap, Gangster Greed, Manderines Money and Mad Money 4 Me.

Of those, MPC and cash duck have been the two I've used the most. MPC seems to have the highest payouts on everything if there isn't a contest going. This month Mad Money for Me is running a contest where everyone who participates wins ($15 bonus per $100 completed), so I plan participating during that week. They're actually doing some great contests the entire month.

Anyone seen the contest this month at Swatcash?

The top prize is a TV that's selling for $1350 on Amazon right now. Wowwy. They're offering a lot of major prizes this month.

I work outside of my home, so that plus the s-l-o-w dial up keep me from participating in most of the listed sites. However, I read the Jan. thread, joined a few different places and have been very pleased! I am looking at this as a weekend hobby... but from that little bit of time I got a check for $30, free full sized shampoo & conditioner and a 250 minute pre paid phone card (a huge help since almost everything is long distance for us). Just wanted to say THANKS ladies for all the great info

February was slow for me, but hopefully I'll be more motivated this month! I'm pretty much only hanging out on DBP and the Cash Cafe lately though.
