anyone else getting offer invalid or suspended for most of the offers? only the most expensive full credit offers are doable.
what is up with teh site?
will those offers come back after the first of the month?
this is on handbags
Not only Handbags, pretty much every Freeproject site I've tried logging into and checking the offers on the sites I've done...
Hell, even sometimes the expensive offers are suspended. Winning In The Cash Flow, for example.
yeah i posted this for u )
hopefully we will get an answer from CS. i am hoping it is an end of the month thing and tomorrow u will be good to go
ok, is this a sign that the site is shutting down?????? Because i have been waiting for approval for the PSP for probably 3 weeks now, and now response.
no, check out the post in the help section
just a changeover period
they better not shut down as I am waiting to finish handbags to give to my wife next month )
i don't think they plan on shutting down, but they are getting worse and worse about customer service.
i used to love thefreeproject, but once i get my cash...i'm done with them

I talked to him yesterday. Hes still trying to find a replacement for metarewards. He had all his eggs in one basket with them. So now hes stuck lookign into them all to find a replacement.
He also said payouts should be around the 14th.
So will see
hmm, is he gonna get that set up soon?
guess no handbag for my wife for our anniversary (
at least he is trying to fix it
maybe he should reply to support tickets as well
He responded to mine. He's going through a changeover period because MetaRewards shut down. He's switching to another service. I'm sure it'll be fixed soon enough.
FINALLY got a reply to my support ticket after a month of waiting. only got this reply
[quoteb2770072f6]We are in a difficult period right now due to the fact that all offers have been suspended. I am not sure when everything will be back to normal. Thank you for your patience.[/quoteb2770072f6]
[quote3925db56bf="jy3"]maybe he should reply to support tickets as well[/quote3925db56bf]
Yes but you also have to imagine he is probably getting 100-200 a day.
meanwhile he has to do the mamba with 5-6 publishers to become an affiliate. Some of which take a month to add you.
Then he has to change 20-30 links on 12+ sites. Which would easily take a week.
On top of that try to catch up on PMs.
I would prefer if he spends his time fixing his site rather then reading 10000 support tickets that all ask the same question.
I wouldnt worry about it till say the 15th. If he hasnt shipped out gifts by then, then I say worry. Since sending out payments has nothing to do with metareward.
sounds like a plan, stan )
hoping they get things rolling this week. i wanted to get my wife a handbag for our anniversary...looks like that wont happen!
I'm waiting too >< I need the offers back up to do jy3's site =P
Is ANYTHING going on with this site? In the time it's taken to get my account "verified" on psps.thefreeproject, I've started and completed other sites. I've received a Nintendo DS, an iPod Shuffle, and couple hundred dollars during my waiting on thefreeproject.
I talked to the owner today. TFP just worked out the kinks in their auto-crediting script and offers should soon be popping up.
I have been waiting for credit on one of my offers now for about 45 days. He said he is sending in manual credits soon... BUt when is that.. if they shut down how can they manual credit
this si crazy...n i am also done after i finish this site (ipods)
well they are not shut down they are just without an advertising affiliate
The site STILL won't let me place my order. I click the button to place my order but my status NEVER changes. This is so annoying..
I'm still waiting to get approved, when will this site be back to work????
You guys need to relax. His entire business is being revamped. It's going to take a little while to get things straightened out.
yeah I think people are just nervous b/c the message on the main page at freeproject.com hasnt been updated is all )
[quotec7edec928d="jy3"]yeah I think people are just nervous b/c the message on the main page at freeproject.com hasnt been updated is all )[/quotec7edec928d]
I think more people are nervous due to the fact he didnt send out payments last month. Since metarewards closing has nothing to do with sending out payments or approving accounts.
what does offers going away has to do with approving accounts, unless the offers that your referrals has done are worthless and they won't pay FreeProjects

For the second time?
i heard that the guy is getting ready to bounce. where is he? why hasn't he updated the front page? I heard he just figured out how hard it was to maintain, credit, and ship so he is going to just cut his losses and bounce.... (
where did u hear this?
insider info...i dont know for sure so dont quote me....just shooting a warning flare
that would fucking suck
i have one green already there and 3 more pending.
where is that deposit from the site? ;)
Heres very brief convo with him
[quotede7db92fb2]FreeGiftReview (75303 PM) so whats up with the site dude
?????? (75353 PM) We are working are adding more offers back and the orders should go out within the next few days[/quotede7db92fb2]
everything else was just banter but figured everyone would like to hear first sentence.
i am changing trades that I can right now, though. i can get more greens later if i have to. wont have the handbag for my wife in time though (
thanks for the info, boss
Well guess he is sending out some payments
Got one of my 3 due today
no congrats yet, he still owes me $600 and only need 2 more refs for another $1k so lots invested right now.
I just checked out my site and he just posted that my ipod is shipped. I hope that it comes soon!!

Man, I just bought a PSP instead with my ordercash4free money. I'm requesting $225 paypal now off of TFP.
Well, it looks like they are starting to get back to schedule because one of my referrals went RED
anybody traded with Strife220 before??
OMG!! I just got verified! Too bad I just bought a PSP. Still very happy.
YOU BEAT ME
this is so uncool. None of the offers are working, now what i'm I suppose to do? How can I trade or get a green if none of the offers are working?????
Do I still have to wait until June 20th?
hopefully offers will be up soon (
darn, no offers alive today (
one of my referrals went on hold because his account info was inaccurate, wrong zip code apparently, and they put him/her on hold, oh CRAZY is that that. Hopefully they will fix it and the site owner isn't as shaddy as some others.
They paid me 2 days after I sent in my order on psps.thefreeproject.com

He di that to one of my referrals on a site too. They joined 5 sites of mine and mistyped one zip on one of them. They never got off hold on that one, but cleared all others.
so what are you saying?? My referral is skrewed on the psps.thefreeproject site????
When you are viewing your order, does it mention your state?
i thought this site was gone....do u still have to wait 2 months before you receive your gift or are they shipping faster
^shipping is varied on this site. no def answer...
but, is anybody actually getting their refs to work yet? i am having trouble still, and only need 1 more!

how long do they take to shipp the products? especially now that they are working on bringing back the offers
I got mine after asking the guy if I could get it next day since I had to wait for 3 months to get approved. So for me, it was 2 days after approval. Yea, so you should just say, "ey foo, its been 3 months son... gimme my psp, or I will kill you".

she is making the small transition from Indian cinema to hollywood, she will be the first to make that cross. She has appeared on Opera, David Letterman, and 60 Minutes.
well a change today. now there are NO offers listed
He is replacing offers. Some sites have all new offers.
excellent news fgr )
nothin yet on handbags.
this must be a crazy time for the site owner!
Its not easy adding offers and he has a ton of sites. Hes probably doing the slowest sites first. lol
can anybody access the site? because i cant
i can access handbags right now. it looks like offers are up. i cannot check if they are working b/c "pay to surf" is blocked at work )
so who wants to do handbags for me )
Access to the requested URL has been denied by SurfControl
yeah we have websense at work
My PSP Just Shipped Today D
Yeps got my $400 yesterday for finishing flatscreens last week.
He was even nice and fixed macminis yesterday for me. Wooo Hooo only 2 more greens to $550 more.
I hope the PSP isn't used
exchange it at walmart ;)
how long would it be for it to land in my hands and how can a return it to Walmart if i didn't buy if from walmart
target and walmart allow exchanges and returns for unopened items.
especially target, walmart is YMMV.
the thing about target is that you have to purchase the thing instore that same day for the same amount or greater.
i have never done an exchange...but u could exchange it for something else u need.
then with the cash u saved doing the exchange u can buy a psp new
YAY! i finally got an answer to most of the questions about the site.
here is the deal. as we all know, they were having problems with the bad offers, and had to go through and replace them all. thefreeproject has currently worked there way through about 1/2 of their sites (or so they claim), and will have all of them up and running within a week. they are also trying harder to respond to support tickets, and ship products.
good luck to y'all.
Notebooks is up and running. I'm 6 Refs closer to that $900!
good luck, they shipped my PSP yesterday, hopefully it comes on Monday
yeah iam waiting for people to green...slow.... ;)
damn that indian chick is SO hot
Owner is trying to speed up all aspects of the site once he gets through the tedious work of swapping out all the offers.
i need one more to go green so my wife can get her handbag. does the site owner ship out twice per month or more?

it took me 10 days to receive paypal after finishing flatscreens. So not sure if its cause he likes me or if hes speeping up. He did say hes trying to ship faster.

which handbag are you going for? most of the handbags on the site are outdated and actually no longer available. I told the owner about it, and he's in the process of updating to different bags. i'm helping him find bags that will be around that same price range. so, it might be best to go for paypal now if you finish soon.
i'm also one green away (and also mine that's waiting for manual). tell me how yours goes when you are done, so i know where i stand.
my wife picked it out. hmm, lemme check.
is this available?
Fendi Baguette Handbag Zucchino Beige .
thanks for teh heads up btw

Fendi Baguette Handbag Zucchino Beige .[/quote540d47156b]
I tried to find that bag and couldn't either! I saw a ton of fake ones though from sites that pretend it's real. But as for authentic Fendi just like that one on the site, I haven't seen any. Then again, I'm not a Fendi fan... so maybe it does sell somewhere but I don't see it! There are Fendi bags similar to that one but a little bigger and a tiny bit different, they sell for around $500... so I doubt thats the one he's planning to send out!
The LV is still at eluxury (which is a trusted authentic store) for around $210. I think the coach bag are also available (or a very similar style) but its around $150. The Gucci's are no longer available. I can't remember the rest. Most designer bags only have certain places that are guaranteed to be authentic online their own store, eluxury, saks, neiman marcus, and I don't remember the rest they told me. (Once I sent an email to Gucci asking about sites and they told me that most of them are all fake except the ones on the list they gave me.) The owner told me its probably just best to go with $200 if we finish soon. I am thinking of just doing that. I hate to wait around for shipment anyways!
yeah maybe i will do that. problem is i was just in NYC and could have gone to saks to get one for my wife!
somethings funny going on with my TFP acct. jy3- I pm'd you.
PMd ya back shop.
strange thing is he hasnt closed or answered my tickets that i have opened since 6/19. is he on vacation?
i want to change my order to paypal and just buy my wife a purse elsewhere
He answered a PM of mine a couple days back. He seems really helpful. I asked him to take the engraving off the iPod I'm getting for my bro. He said he could. [smiley]
hmm, he hasnt answered me. i want to change to paypal from the handbag b/c the handbag isnt available...
Ive heard through grapevine he is out of town until the 10th ish. He has a friend trying to work support, but hes new. So slow going.
thanks fgr, that makes me feel better )

yeah i am hoping either he can find the purse my wife wants or change me to $200 paypal and send it to me next week. she has been teasing me nonstop since i showed her the site and asked her what purse she would want if she could have one. i told her i wanted to show her that there were things she would like to help explain why i am doing all of this. of course she thinks it means she should get one, which is going to happen but it isnt much of a surprise anymore 0

well, i'm waiting on the guy to tell me why i'm on hold since june 26th or so. he told me to ask his helper while he was on vacation. his helper said to ask him instead since he doesn't know. no one can give me a reason yet. so the owner said he would come home this past monday and would personally check my account. it's no longer monday and still no idea as to why i'm on hold. i wrote him another note to his email, pm, and support ticket and asked him to answer me by this weekend. hmm..
he answered a PM from last week. evidently my handbag was shipped 6/16 but whomever did it reversed the addresses....going back out soon i guess
i got taken off hold FINALLY as of thursday. i guess it was a mistake!! NOW THOUGH, one of my ref is on hold. he said that she had multiple accounts. she said shes NEVER done any TFP and this is her first and only one. so, we'll see what happens. i'm glad she didnt have to wait 2-3 weeks like i did for an answer though!
yeah, hoping my handbag gets sent out soon. my wife keeps bugging me for one ;)
Jy3, we will get your handbag in the mail tomorrow morning. I apologize for the shipping mix-up.
Shopaholic, I'm sorry it took so long to resolve your on-hold situation. I'm glad it is all figured out now. I apologize for any inconvenience.
All orders should go out soon.

got my wife's handbag today finally. it is sweet. my question, since someone mentioned it before, is how would I make sure it is authentic (no insult to the owner.)
I'm glad everything worked out for you all. Thank you for the positive feedback. It is very much appreciated. I hope your wife enjoys her handbag. Here is an update regarding manual credit requests
I want you all to know that nobody's manual credit ticket has been skipped. All of them get forwarded to the advertisers. If you don't include a confirmation email, they will simply deny your request right away. However, we are aware that some people have included all the proper information and not received credit. Here is the response we got from the advertiser
"Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We got the requests, that's a
nice feature you have. We never heard back on most of them and the rest we
just get the run around on. To be honest, it's gotten very hard to get
most merchants/networks to look into crediting issues recently, only a
small percentage do we hear anything back on and we're deciding if we will
continue to have a manual credit request form on our sites because of
I've followed up more than once on the ones you sent, not to mention some
of our own and we eather don't get a response or we get various excuses
(still looking into it, haven't heard back from merchant, etc).
I'm sorry that I don't have more info to offer, we're dealing with the
same thing, I think most freebie sites are. I'll let you know if anything
Because of this, we are in the process of switching most of our sites over to a new advertiser that we believe is more efficient with manual credit requests. However, we are not very certain on how efficient any of these companies are with manual credit requests. We assure you that each manual credit request will be sent in to the advertiser and followed up on, but it is up to the advertiser to handle it from there. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused anyone.
yeah she loves it thanks! the siteop has been great with updating us with all the changes at the company with hosting and new advertisers.
Just submitted for approval on ipods.freeproject 10min ago. I'll let everyone know how smoothly/quick I go through the process and my overall experience with this site )
WOW!!! 1 hour later and my account was approved! I just placed my order for ipods.freeproject. I will update everyone when it has been shipped/received. So far so good!
I got approved for a 30gb white ipod sans engraving! These guys are the best man. Im givin the ipod to my brother, but still, theses guys are a lot faster than a coupla months ago.
Eff the iPod! I just got approved for $900!!!
!! 900$? Wow, Thats a lot of cash >.>
what site did you get 900 dollars cash from?
notebooks.thefreeproject.com only 18 refs
Their customer support is great. These guys are real contenders now.
Hi, you told me to remind you that for the iPod that I'm ordering right now, I can have it without an engraving. I would like to request it that way please. Thank you very much (This is my favorite network now). Also, when do you ship? Thanks again.
On 7/27/2006 1048 AM, an admin said
Don't have an exact ship date, but we will not put an engraving on your iPod.
On 7/31/2006 1150 PM, you said
Ok, thanks, I appreciate it. Also, I caught wind that you ship on the 20th of the following after account approval. Is this true? Thank you.
On 8/1/2006 952 AM, an admin said
That is not true. Our shipping dates vary a lot. We will get the gifts out as quick as possible though. [/quote728421b376]
Ey Rampage, did you get urs without an engraving?
placed order for $225 today
ok, i think i'll finish the ipod site this week, do you guys think I'll have it by september 2nd? I wanna give it as a birthday gift to my mom )
how are offers crediting for these sites, these days?
what happened to this site, because i can't access the site
Scammed me and a ton of other ppl. I contact my attorney general regarding the issue and I guess he took care of it or is still in the process.
After about 2 months of filing a complaint with the government, tfp contact me and told me that I have gone on hold due to multiple accounts which is bullshit. Im guessing the government made him close it cause he was still accepting sign ups even though he was not shipping out.
Im still fighting this issue.
