Hello,
I would like to start this thread by asking a few YFD related questions.

1. If I sign up for all the YFD sites, right now, will that reserve my the offers needed for an item? I will i be effected if they raise the requirements?

2. Can you do any offers, regardless of page titles, and still get credit on all the YFD sites? (sorry, know its been asked a million times!)

3. Are all the YFD sites limited right now by the 6 offers required maximum?

4. Are the offers on all the YFD sites the same?

5. Where's the list of all the YFD sites, is there one?

Thanks,

TWG

I agree it IS all repeated, but Gigante and I figured that this thread can be used for the stupid questions rather than there beign 50 new threads every day. So all YFD questions - big and small - can go in here.

ok, well something thats been going throught my mind

How do you know you can do any offer from any page? I know many of you have sent in your forms already, but as far as I know, no one here has recieved anything big from YFDirect except the guy that started the thread about his TV.

I guess it would be safe to assume that if your offers credited and you sent in your confirmation forms or whatever that you are good to go. It's just I haven't read any post that said HOW we know this is ok.

So, if you could let me know how you know this is not a problem for them. A link to a thread on scam?

Will Peoople [b3055f9d942]PLEASE[/b3055f9d942] read the FAQ page before posting questions? Well over half of the questions asked are in plain site in the first post of the FAQ page, there is no need for all of these extra posts becasue of questions that could be answerd by looking. Its also 10 times better for you because you don't have to wait for someone to reply to get an answer, because it is right there!

I looked in the FAQ and there was no mention of how to set the password without the email... I just did a search on it and your locked thread[=http//forum.freeipodguide.com/viewtopic.php?t=29454&highlight=password]locked thread (Dec 29) is the only topic that appears to have covered it specifically. Interesting.

Airkat

16-01-2006 09:02:10

Thats not the only place it as covered, which is why Gigante locked it. If there WAS an error, then your email wasn't found in their system.

Also, if I remember correctly, you were working on internetopiniongroup, you said you read the threads, but you have to change it to the site you are working on.. so to hold your hand even further

So what your saying is that by a simple search you could have found the info correct??? Exactly what I was trying to say, if peope would search around before asking there would be a ton less posts about things that have been covered...

Yeah, the posts regardining previous covered topics is insane.

Wolfeman

OK, I think I know whats happening. You have to replace the words myEmail with your email. The link has to be edited to fit your email...

If my email= used was email=fake@123fake.comfake@123fake.com used was email=fake@123fake.comfake@123fake.com/email...

Peksim

16-01-2006 11:54:07

You guys are still going on and on and on... maybe the "insane" thing is how much time and posts you guys have devoted to this well after the fact that my question is answered. and I said I was going to contact their support.

I guess you have nothing better to do than to clog the this thread with useless bickering. I said "I am going to call their support" which meant "I no longer desire your help. Thanks fo trying."

I was to know this how? I asked a question that was not in the "FAQ" under the YF Direct thread. The one post I found that covered this issue did not have the right site (according to Airkat).

In short, I am done with you.

Maybe you should not have a thread to ask questions... obviously it is too painful for you.

Look at my response after you helped me.

I thanked you and said that I got an error. I did put my email address in the link (replacing the PLACEYOUREMAILHERE...) but it was not working so I concluded that I needed to call them. All of the other posts were unnesscessary. I appriciated [b8a2c7fbbda]your[/b8a2c7fbbda] help because you did not try to imply that I was stupid... which I have not denied.

and thanks for the note in the FAQ.

everyone seemed to skip over my question in this thread....

How do "we" know that YFDirect doesn't have a problem with doing any offers from any page? I know it may be a pain, and you don't have to find it specifically for me, but just curious where this information originated.

Can referals be transferred from IOG to BIGWIN or another YFD site

Its the EXACT same for all the sites just change the site and put in your email

No, you cannot transfer offers...

floyd242

20-01-2006 10:12:14

At BigWin if you complete an offer, close all the windows, and then log back in, how do you continue with offers? Do you have to refill your info and retake the survey and everything or is there and easier way?

Thanks

Wolfeman

20-01-2006 10:21:17

When I start a site I always copy the URL from the first page but no there isn't an easier way. Just put the same info in and you don't have to do any of the surveys at the begining, they are optional...

Airkat

20-01-2006 21:51:28

bookmark after the survey...

RoBsTaMaCk

26-01-2006 14:01:02

I'm pretty sure this was answered though I can't find it when I search for it
If your offer goes In-Progress, is there a possibility that it won't be approved after the 45 day wait?

Also, I read some people requesting manual credit over the phone. I contacted YFDirect via email and they said I had to wait 45 days to request manual credit. However, I was reading that some people called them and successfully requested manual credit even though they had to wait a month for other offers to approve. If I call them prior to the 45 days will they give me manual credit or should I just wait? Thanks.

When are they going to come out with a new site?? I just finished completing the last of these tonight! I Want More!!!

BTW, real question
What is the email address for GadgetCity? The one that you would send manual credit to? Tomorrow will be day 43, which means if I get the right people from YFD I am eligable for manual credit... I will try it out and try to get the links sent by day 44 )

Anyone print certificates lately? Trying to print for InternetOpinionGroup and these damn emails arent coming #1, and #2 the URL provided for EFG (the order.jsp?tid=moo&email=baa) isn't working.

I'm thinking maybe they changed the URL format or there is something else to the URL

Airkat

30-01-2006 10:50:53

Well I finally just called in. The urls pasted in the other thread are wrong. The TID is DIFFERENT from the transaction_id and you DO need the email to get it. I had to call them up and have them resend and watch my spam box like a hawk.

I asked how many offers the 1k gift card is so I can just cross it out on my certificate but he said I would need to complete another offer towards the gift card so that at least one certificate said giftcard (

Wolfeman

30-01-2006 11:17:03

Airkat, did you grab the tid #s when you clicked the orginal link to have the emails sent?

I know all I need is email confirmation of a signup for an offer to get credit from YFDirect, but I am curious if ANYONE went from "Pending" to "In Progress" on the following, and approx wait times if ya did

(1) SHOPPER DISCOUNTS
(2) SIMPLY YOU
(3) AOL Spyware

I searched quite a few forums and couldn't find any definitive answers.

Thanks.

[iaf33a102cd][baf33a102cd]EDIT I just got credit for Shopper Discounts AND Simply You. Shopper Discounts took 12 days. Simply You took 11 days (including weekends).

Not sure if its necessary, but did you download and login to AOL? When I did, it said it needed activation. Gave me a 1800 number, I called, the girl was nice, activated me and I could login. no update yet, but it's only been a day since my welcome email.

zbalz

01-02-2006 05:59:29

yeah i called up and activated along with received the welcome email. There are a few steps to login as well.

Since it is a trial, I have been using the service on and off the past week, logging in and such. Not a huge fan but I gave it a shot )

Still no credit..but YF is always good for manual credit.

Hey I just want to make sure this is clear. I searched the forums and haven't seen too much on it. Moreover, I can't find the question/answer in the questions or faq sticky...so here it is

For YFDirect, can one sign up for multiple SITES, of different domain names using the same information (i.e. one account for markeysurveygroup, one for bigwin, one for EFG..etc)? This includes email info, household address, etc.

[I am almost 100% sure answer is yes as per YFD TOS but just want a confirmation]

Similarly, if it hasn't been asked or answered yet, ONE gift per HOUSEHOLD per SITE (domain) is definate as per ToS...

hey i'm looking at getting a laptop, and i was wondering which of the two laptops listed there was the better as far as performace/size/ease of use. they got the Tobisha M45 and the Sony Vaio S-Series.

which one do you guys think i should do, or would i be better of doing some other site??? i'm looking more for the cheap aspect of it, and the thought of 18 offers dosn't really sit well with me. both of these are 8, but which one would i be better off with

edit oh i guess they're for the same site, but my question still stands of which one would be better

zbalz

07-02-2006 07:57:32

theres a new thread open for laptop preferences on DiY sites
http//forum.freeipodguide.com/viewtopic.php?t=32356

Also there is another thread with laptop info in it as a sticky now
http//forum.freeipodguide.com/viewtopic.php?t=32360

Check it out there and follow up questions there I assume...be sure to search before posting

My preference goes with the HP zv6000 (?) on InternetOpinionGroup for only 6 offers that airkat recommended on the second thread I gave ya.

no, you can't do 1 offer and have it count toward 3 different sites. Each site requires a unique set of offers to be completed. Some sites let you do the offer more than once (video professer? ? ? )...but ya you have to do different offers for each site

This is odd cuz i called BIGWIN and toldthem i already have 2 of the credit cards on page 3 (total offers on 3 are 3 credit cards) and asked him if i could do another offer from a seperate page. He told me no and he also went on to tell me my mother could not sign up for the credit card, she'd instead have to make her own account.

I think the deal is you could prolly do both of these things but seeing that im looking at page 3 that means im to close to completion...

Guys.. important question here.

I signed up for all my offers on 1/29 for a Casio Digital Camera on EveryFreeGift.com.

5 out of the 6 went into 'in progress'.. the only one I was waiting on was a Credit Card Offer. And today I got a letter in the mail saying I was denied and they didnt accept it.

Now.. how do I go back and see the list of offers once again so I can complete another one?

There isnt any link that I can see in 'My Gift Status' to bring me back to the list of offers.

How would I go about doing this?

It's in the FAQ. You should bookmark when you sign up. You'll have to re-register with the exact same info you originally used.

Ok my question is there anything up with the sites that has changed recently. I saw in the bandarama thread airkat mentions something about in the absence of YFdirect sites.

did they recently change their policy or referrals on some of the big ticket sites.

I was just about to start the 8 offer plasma, and a big win site

any cause for concern?

thanks

I completed the offers on the BigWin Vespa last week.

Can anyone tell me what gift on YFDirect is worth most (since the plasma is gone and the TV's and computers don't have great resale value)

Is there anything worth more than the $1000 Visa?

ilanbg

18-02-2006 07:49:40

The arcades are technically worth the most but probably don't have the best resale value.

But you could put it in your local theater and collect quarters weekly for as long as the machine gets played. I don't know if you'd get more money that way or by selling it.

stackmjwiz

18-02-2006 08:28:17

So nothing else on YFDirect has a higher resale value than $1000?

afro_wolff

18-02-2006 08:36:36

Besides BigWin you've got yourself the tablet PC's on InternetOpinion (I believe tahts the site) which resell is just a tad higher but the time and effort in selling might just mkae the 1k worth while

Gigante

18-02-2006 08:38:02

For which sites? I am guessing not bigwin since you did it. GadgetCity is ibook, but isn't over $1k.

I know on EFG they have a couple things that retail over $1k, but doesnt mean you can sell them for such.

methodala

18-02-2006 15:46:55

if it is the same one they offer on BIGWIN then its the Panasonic 42" Plasma EDTV (TH-42PD50U) and its a 480 progressive ( a little better than your regular tv w/ cable, way better with DVDs). However, i'm not sure if the site your talking about is offering the same one but...


This may help http//shopping.yahoo.com/search?p=Panasonic%2042%22%20Plasma

btw does anyone know if the redeem by dates on peoples certificates has posed any problems...like not having the certificates being valid if they get to them after the redeem by date. All my offers may not approve by the time of me redeem date 4/17/06... i started in early january?

2. When I go to IOG's main site, I don't see a search feature or any of the gifts listed under Gigante's thread "links to all sites and offers". So I'm assuming I can just follow one of those links and signup and I'd be fine?

This is a great point. The "BAD NEWS" in my post refers to the fact that the original plasma was a better plasma. The people who originally complained about the SONY not having speakers, tuner, and a stand have to answer for the fact that the LGs are now being shipped. It's bad news because they should have left well enough alone, which is what I'm complaining about.

As far as the LG having more features than the SONY, that may be. But which has the better picture? My bet is that it's the SONY.

I took your advice and searched on the AVS forum for talk about LG plasmas. What I found does not exactly inspire confidence in the LG plasma

"TyTimp

Crap TV. I had the LG and Panasonic set up in my house side by side properly calibrated. The panasonic killed the LG. And I'm not talking slight difference in PQ. The LG was pathetic. The LG's picture was washed out due to the lack of black levels. The picture had a constant grainy haze to it. The colors weren't vibrant. The best way to describe it would be a "good" picture. The word that would best describe the Panasonic would be "Spectacular". The LG looked unacceptable on it's own before I compared it to the Panasonic. My exact reaction to the LG was "this is it? "

There were other reviews which said the LG was adequate, but the review above was troubling.

I will admit that the brand name of Sony influenced my thinking that it would be better than an LG. It's a brand name; the LG isn't. Sony has been in the game for a long time. I think it's a reasonable conclusion for one to reach that a trusted brand name electronics manufacturer's product would be better than that of a no name electronics manufacturer. It might not be the licorrectli conclusion, but it is a lireasonableli one. So I'm not sure what your point is in raking me over the coals about it.

I always would recommend the cash if it is close (especially with YF). It takes so long to get the gift that any technology product stands a good chance of significant devaluation. And selling expensive stuff on EBAY is a real pain in the ass.

I did the Miracleburn offer for YourGiftCards.com on January 3. It is still listed as pending. How good is YF Direct at giving manual credit? I'm planning on calling them tomorrow, but I'm not sure what the procedure is for getting the credit. I do have my confirmation emails from Miracleburn. Is that all I need to get credit from them? Do you email them or fax them?

I just finished printing off my Big Win certificates and am mailing today. I had a rough time getting them, it took 6 calls to them before the email arrived. My ISP must be blocking their emails as I don't have spam filters or a bulk mail folder. Finally, they sent the email to my alternate email (a yahoo address that I use for ebay) and I was able to print off the certificates. The customer service was really friendly and helpful, so I hope they'll be able to give me the manual credit from the Miracleburn offer.

Hey, has anyone noticed the recent change in two of the IOG gift card sites within the last few days? I had signed up under the IOG sites for the $1k BestBuy and $500 WalMart cards about a month ago (though no offers done yet) and last week they were still for WalMart and BestBuy, but early this morning I checked them again and now they have been replaced with CircuitCity and KMart.

I'm not sure if anyone has seen this kind of thing happen before, but is there any likelyhood that I will be able to get the original WalMart/BestBuy cards that I signed up for? The only reason that I signed up for those 2 sites was because of the cards being for walmart and bestbuy. I contacted IOG earlier about the BestBuy card, but I only found out about WalMart today and might email them tomorrow if I have the time.

Also, about IOG, I had decided to fiddle a bit with the URL numbers and managed to find a few different sites that weren't on Gigante's list from earlier. Let me know if anyone is interested in them and I will post em or you can PM me for them.

BTW, if anyone is wondering about using a browser other than IE or Firefox, I used Safari on my Mac mini (OS X 10.3.9) and so far, the yourmusic.com offer has updated to show IN PROGRESS. So it looks like the offers will go if you don't use IE. For all of the other freebie stuff, I've always used IE under Windows XP, just to be safe.

Hey, has anyone here done anything with the MyEliteRewards sites yet? I just checked them recently and I was really pissed that the $1k BestBuy & WalMart cards are now CircuitCity & Kmart, respectively. I'm pretty sure I had already signed up for them, but now I can't do them unless they change the gift back. There is no Circuit City near me and both Kmart and CircuitCity stock really suck compared to the original companies.

Also, I noticed the MyEliteRewards only asks you to do 3 offers, 1 from each tier. If this is a YFDirect network, do you know if you can use the same method for all their other sites? I could really use their eBay, AMEX, and Amazon.com gift certs. so I would really like to know. Thanks to all who can help.

I have a question regarding the recently raised requirements for YF Direct sites.

If you are not aware, YFDirect has raised the offer requirements on some of its sites. For instance the Vespa on BigWin has gone from 10 to 14 offers. The $1000 gift card has gone from 6 to 8 offers. etc.

My question is this --

I have completed offers for efg, msg, bigwin, gadgetcity, and iog -- All in January. I am in progress for every offer except for one on Bigwin.

How will these new offer requirements affect me? thank you.

crazyates,

I am worried that in YFDirect's view, an offer that is still only "pending" may not equate to "completing all the requirements." Of course, I know that I completed all the requirements, but will they see it that way?

Anyone know if the ibook offer requirement went up from 6 offers?

I doubt they will see it the same way we want it to be. There is a reason for their change, and we all knew it was coming because they are so delayed by the 4 months that they wouldn't realize they owed so much until it got to time.

Offering the $1000 for Plasma's is a way of them saving money so they can afford to send gifts, the same reason for the delay in sending the Plasmas. They don't want to dip into previously earned funds and are hoping they can make the money back by increasing requirements.

Johnston

07-03-2006 12:10:58

There is no point to doing those sites. The reason I was doing the YFD sites was because they offered things I really wanted but could never afford (at least not for several years). I had also begun considering using some of the stuff they offered to help start an e-business, as well as getting a better computer. I can't get things like this from the sites you mentioned and I have absolutely no idea what my credit is, if I even have any.

Now what I really want to know is if we are certain that we cannot keep doing the sites like we have done in the past? Gigante seems to know the most about these sites, so I will wait and hear what he has to say. Personally, I'm gonna try and take my chances and go from there.

I am really stressed out over this and some very bad ideas are running through my mind, so hopefully everything will turn out okay.

Afro, did you put delivery confermationon the package. I did and they said they recived it at about the ame time the tracking number di. usually about a week. you should still have the email where they sent the certificates to them right. just print them out again with a tracking number any you should be ok.

So I dont think I could use your site. I just want to get the sites I have in mind, then maybe get some worked on for gifts or resale. I had a very good plan going and now this has really messed me up. I was really in need of those gift cards and now I'm in a real mess. I guess I will wait and see how this all turns out, then see whether I should stress or not.

This is just really stupid and doesn't make any sense to me, but then again I actually think about running FAIR businesses.

So here's my question to the Godfather, I mean Gigante

Let's say someone repeated two offers over the course of completing 4 different YFDirect sites back in January. Would this person be screwed? Or is all forgiven for past sins, and it is only new transgressions that should worry us?

Forgive me Constance, for I have sinned...

[quote0a8dfd0321="stackmjwiz"]What happens if I did the right amount of offers for an item about a month ago...would I have to go back and do credit card offers?[/quote0a8dfd0321]

I'm in the same boat here. For BigWin I just called and got my 'in progress' offers approved today and monday with no problems. Printed the vouchers and now status is "confirmed". So I assume I am fine with BigWin.

As for my others (EFG and IOG), I should be approved next week, all are in progress...and were completed at mid-end of January. I can only hope that since I was approved on offers after the TOS change on BigWin that I will be fine for the other YFD sites as well.

Anyone else have any insight on this situation? Will those who already completed their offers a month or two ago be 'grandfathered' in and not have to complete MORE offers?

Ok, I searched this thread as well as the brag threads and didn't find the answer.

What carrier do the Treo 650 phones work with that come from YDF? I know someone got one from Nuitech and it was Cingular. I am hoping the one I am trying for is for Sprint (if they let me choose).

The person at the customer service line I called today wasn't sure and she didn't sound all that excited to search out an answer.

Or change to the carrier that the phone will work on, but I've got a decent plan with Sprint (and not under contract), so the thought of selling it and getting another Treo 650 for Sprint is an option I may have to go down.

So how exact is the "45 day" thing? My 45th day is today en EFG for my first DIY and I'm really excited. Did all my offers on Jan 30 (so if my calculations are correct today is the 45th day right?).

I did them all that same day and I think all 6 went In Progress within a couple of days.

All my offers still say "In Progress" today though.. Will they change over at precisely 45 days (I mean, down to the hour and minute) or maybe just at some point today?

Thanks!

Wolfeman,

on another thread where someone was asking if they were going to get their gift from IOG, you told this person they needed to do additional offers from the last page. This person said that all of his offers were in progress.

From the recent experience of a close friend, I know that this is incorrect. While it may vary from how you go about dealing with YFDirect, I know for a fact that if you had signed up before the offers changed and when YF changed their policy, you can still get approval and your certificates.

This may not be the same for BigWin. I have heard that it is not. I will find out soon.

Wolfeman

24-03-2006 18:18:27

You can get your certs printed but when it comes time to ship they will tell you, you have to do the right offers...

dropitlikeitshizzot

This might be the case for BigWin, but that's not how it's worked for iog, efg, and msg. My friend may have gotten lucky, but I have seen posts elsewhere that suggest his was not an isolated incident.

!!! YFDIRECT UPDATE (manual crediting) !!!

I requested manual credit for 2 offers after 45 days waiting on InternetOpinionGroup (YFD site) today.

Their process is now different than before. Rather than emailing billing statement or email proof as before, they just ask for your membership number, and sign up information, right over the phone. It has been a few hours and I haven't received a response yet so it is definately going to be a longer process than manual credit before, which was usually VERY quick (few hours max).

I was told manual credit can take 1-2 weeks as well..so that may be yet another week wait for my prize. (

chillywilly

27-03-2006 16:24:20

Thanks for the update on that. I have a feeling that one of my 6 offers will need manual credit (5 of the 6 offers I've done show IN PROGRESS, with one still showing PENDING).

Man... before long, it's going to be 4-5 months to get anything from YFD, esp. if you need to apply for manual credit.

This W9 stuff is stressful. I sent in my vouchers to YFD last week... but I forgot to include the W9. Dumbass. Now I read that the 45 days won't start until they receive it? Arghghg!!!

Anyway... have a question about printing out the certs because I have a laptop at IOG getting to the 45 days in a few days.

I want to change the shipping address. Do I enter the new address when I generate the vouchers? Or do I have to enter the address I used to sign up? I need to change it because I had used my work address but I no longer work there. I want to change it to home (or maybe the new job).

This last gift from YFD I used the same old work address but I didn't change it. I'll just have to let someone know I'll be expecting a package there.

Actually it won't be much of a problem to have the laptop shipped to the old job really. Its just that when I send in the W9 I'd have to use my real home address on that one and I don't want any extra hassles.

Thanks.

I think you're okay to enter you new address when generating the certificates, but I would call them just to double check and ask about the W-9...I don't think it would matter if your W-9/tax addess was different from your signed up address

I'm also sending in my certs and w-9 for the 1k visa cash card, so they're gonna get my ss number anyway shrug

I'm just gonna send it in, but do i only send in the first page? Like can i cut it off below where i put my signature? it's the only page where i have to fill stuff out...the rest of it is only "what if" and stuff like that...nothing i'm interested in wink[/quote3aefb28f4d]

Okay, well If they only need it once, for all your gifts.
For example, I should be getting the Plasma from EFG, and a $2000 Toshiba Tablet PC from IOG, but I only needed to send the first page of the W-9 form to them.
They sent me a letter explaining and the first page, so I am assuming that's all they need....but I just did a Google search, and filled out the IRS form

http//www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf

You can fill the whole form out online, except your signature and date..lol

They don't make you pay taxes, all they do is report that a gift was sent to you to the IRS. Technically you should be already paying taxes on all the free gifts you get. You can deduct some of the costs of offers but you should be paying taxes shrug

Yea, I understand, and I know they will prolly put the full retail value on the gifts they report, but i'm wondering what they will report... legally I am supposed to claim anything I receive, but I am only forced to report it if they put it on my 1099 at the end of the year.

Nobody likes being forced to pay taxes -- it is just our sad reality. Not reporting income is a bad, bad thing.

General tax rule to follow for the rest of your life unreported income sends you to jail -- aggressive deductions gets you a fine.

Has anyone requested manual credit on offers since YFD revamped their new system (as in, past beginning of march)?

Last monday, I requested manual credit on 2 offers that were still pending. As previously stated, they no longer request confirmation emails to be sent but rather just take your customer number for the offersite and check up on it (I emailed proof anyway that day). I was told to wait 1-2 weeks.

Today I called just to 'check up' and was told the manual credit lady for IOG was 'on vacation' for the past week and will look at it soon. (yea..right). I was told to call back within 3 weeks from when I requested credit, or 2 weeks from today.

Clearly manual credit is becoming much more of a pain for YFD, and can seriously delay shipping times. (

Has anyone requested manual credit lately? Has anyone gotten a response (approved or denied) yet from them lately?

I really don't have time to call so email is my best option.

Is manual credit for them the same as EFG? I had 1 offer which never got credited and now the rest are approved. Sucks. Even did an extra offer and that one never got approved either.

I am printing my vouchers for the ibook at gadget city and when i click on the voucher link they sent me it takes me to the voucher page but there is no like print voucher button it is just to print the whole webpage and this page looks nothing like tjwors powerbook vouchers I saw, this is my first yfd site I usually only do nuitech, so my question was how do i get the vouchers to print right? Also I just wanted to know how do I send a w-9 to yfd, because they said they require one but they never sent me one or anything? how does that work because I know nuitech it just prints with you voucher. thanks for you help

the vouchers dont need to look like anything, as long as they get the certificate number, bar code, and all the correct information, you should be all set.

Just an update from when I spoke to CS. The W9 will not delay your expecting shipping date. The ONLY time it will affect your shipping date is for those who have waited 6-8 weeks after vouchers processed and have NOT sent in their W9 already. That's straight from YFD CS.

So for those of you waiting for a plasma, and didnt send in that W9 yet, you're just gonna keep waiting. )

I've done 3 YFD sites. I sent in a W9 for each of them...just in case. For 2 of them I sent it along with the vouchers. For one I sent a few weeks after vouchers sent (when they requested it).

You can just sign up with your own info, and find out how many offers, bookmark the offers page if you think you might do it so you won't have to go in and do it again... they have no problem with you checking several times, as long as you only persue one gift...

You can just sign up with your own info, and find out how many offers, bookmark the offers page if you think you might do it so you won't have to go in and do it again... they have no problem with you checking several times, as long as you only persue one gift...[/quote2315e138f7]

my ip address (cable service) will be changing in about 2 months. do you think it's wise for me to sign up now?

also, since its only one gift per page... i want to see how much the white lv bag and brown lv bag thats from the same site... i cant sign up on both just to see offers amount, can i?[/quote2315e138f7]

They are going to both be the same # of offers, and it doesn't matter how many different things you signed up for, but they are only sending one gift no matter how many offers you complete...

I just requested it this last week, but still nothing yet. It was Wed April 19th that I called them. All they needed was something to prove I did the offer. I asked how long it would take and he said it all depended on how long it took for the offer sponsor to get back to them.

So I check every couple of days now to see if my status has changed.

Any change for you? Updates?

Could use some advice. Completed my 6 offers through market survey group for an ibook. Got 3 of them approved, still waiting for the other 3 (netmarket, complete home, and ultima patch). I was told they have to verify and to give it three weeks. That passed and nothing so I called again and not it is 1 - 4 weeks so they are saying to call back next week.

ANyone have this experience yet and if so how did it turn out? I am going to give them the lousy week but it has been 45 days plus more and still only 3 of 6 approved. I have all confirmations and everything. I hope they don;t screw me over this. I really want the ibook.

ANy advice or similar situations?

Has anyone had any difficulty contacting YFD recently? I am actually still in waiting for an offer to be credited and I did them all on 1/27. It was suggested to me the last time I spoke with them that I check back with them on a weekly basis to check up. I've tried calling them over the past two days and all I get from both of their numbers is a message saying that they are closed and when their normal hours of operation are from. The thing is that I HAVE been calling during their normal hours of operation. Anyone have any advice or possible explanations for this?

You have to complete the correct offers on correct pages. You may be able to slip by with mismatching the total amount on page 1 and 2 of the offers but the are cracking down on people not doing page 3 for at least 1 credit card.

The voucher will Just have a barcode and some numbers and some other information they need, but nothing from the offers. You fill out your name and shipping info on it too.

02-05-2006 17:25:27

Well I called YF about my status since I have done all my offers and it has been almost 3 months now. Well they submitted my info to the companies to get approval and to make a long story short, after speaking to a supervisor I have to suck it up and wait. If it is not approved by next week I have to call again and they have to resubmit my info to the sponsors. So, looks like it will be a long wait.

On a good note, the guy I spoke to said it should definitely get approved if I completed the offer, which I did, then I will get the iBook. Out of all the people I spoke to so far he seemed the most honest and legit so I have to stay positive.

Also, I asked since the offers changed to more to complete if I have to complete more and they said that if you started when the offer was 6 then you are fine at the 6 as long as they were completed before the change. So there is a little good new out of all this BS lately.

I was told the same thing the last time I called them.

I am still waiting for my 6th offer to get manually approved. It's been since April 19th. I'm assuming I don't have to wait 45 days to get that approved.

Also, do I have to wait to send in all 6 approval forms (along with my W9 form) or can I send the 5 I have now and then send the 6th one in when I get it? The 5 I have now expire the middle of June and I want to make sure I get credit for them before they expire.

Sort of good news to market survey group (YF direct). Called today because I heard that the offers expire after a while and I am on my second request to get 3 offers credited. Was told that if your offers that were approved expire to call them and they will re-approve it on the spot. So I still have no iBook and am missing three approvals but at least I don;t have to worry about losing the three that did credit. Now it is back to the old waiting game. It's all a bunch of BS but what else can you do?

The old lady that smokes a few packs of cigs a day, she should probably look into completing this site http//www.bigwin.com/landings/win_template_07.jsp?product_id=2077&bid=98&usp=ups23&pid=1844165760&cid=CD104&lid=3661&ptid=CD104.63b8fbcf32bf39e55bec4539d5408a64.&etid=523

And another lady who sounds like she could be in her mid to late 20's or early 30's...

I like the old lady, and the other lady is nice too but I hardly talk to her. Constance is too strict and tells you you have to do credit card offers...

Just called YFD today. They are submitting the one manual credit again. The lady I spoke with was nice, told me to hang onto my approved forms I have now. Told me to ignore the expiration dates on them, as they were dates that referred to them being printed out. All forms (incl. the W9 form) have to be sent in at the same time in the same envelope.

I know most ppl here know this, but wanted to post the update. She told me to call back around June 1st if i still haven't seen the update on my account.

You can call to check to see if they have processed your certs..thats about it. If you sent them in on the 5th, they probably processed them by the following Monday, making tomorrow the six week mark.

But if you know they were processed, then all CS will tell you is you are on the 'master ship list' and will be shipped out in two weeks (the EIGHT week mark). Once you see your status switched to 'Shipped', expect to wait another two weeks or so until it is at your doorstep.

I am waiting on a response from netmarket for my free gift from gadgetcity, I have been waiting a while and just wanna do another offer, to do another one

1. does it have to be under any certain page? like the third or something? or can it be the first or second?

2. should i re-sign up through the site, or go through my bookmarks to get back on the site with my username

Thanks!

U sure about that? My rep told me to complete the offers from the last pg, and when I signed up that was page 6. Page 6 has a few non OOD, so it worked out for me, but she could have possibly referred to pg 3 when she said complete offers from the last pg.

Has anyone tried contacting YFD by telephone recently? I know today is a holiday, but I tried to call them anyway and instead of receiving the usual automated answering service, I received a different one that said "Thank you for calling YourFreeGiftCards (I think) ...", the machine also mentioned a company name, but it did not sound like YFD, more like YFG or something. I know people have been having problems of late, but I just sent my certificates in and my account info has been updated and I would like to speak with someone there to find out if they have received them and look into getting my $1k check as soon as I can.

Is it possible that they just changed their phone number or something? If anyone knows anything, please let me know. Thanks.

I contacted them by phone the on Thursday and they acknowledged that they received them and then I agreed to go with the $1k check instead of plasma (MarketSurveyGroup). They said they forwarded it to another department and that I would receive an email to my signup address to confirm that selection. Replied and confirmed that info. I just checked back today and now my status says shipped.

Don't know if this make sense or not, but I just thought I'd show that they do tend to get their stuff together rather quickly. I always prefer to call companies rather than email them, so their customer service has been very, very helpful. Hope everyone else has good luck with their YFD sites.

I know that there are meny people that finshed marketsurveygroup.com and got your things. Well heres what happened, I signed up and got 5 offers approved, but 3 of them did not go though . Does anyone know of a way to get back into the offers page to finish a few more offers? I saw it referenced once in this long topic, which just pretty much said resignup with all the same info. Is their an easier way to do this?

You might try contacting them before you go do anything like that. All but 2 of my offers had credited within the normal time frame, so I called them up to speak with them and they were very helpful. I had to do a little legwork myself and help get some of my information from the 2 companies that didnt credit, but I was finally able to get it all through.

Honestly, you should probably try to contact the company first before you try going back to do the offers. I almost did cause one company had to be contacted twice, but they advised me against it.

killerman

07-06-2006 10:53:37

After you call them and they tell you your gift should ship out next week, does your status change to shipedp anytime soon or at all?

Just curious, they said everythings in order and will ship soon.

OR does it not have to go shipped and just arrive?

Johnston

07-06-2006 11:06:16

When I contacted MSG when I noticed my status updated to approved and then requested for my gift to be changed to a check, they told me that I would need to wait a 6-8 weeks for it to arrive. After I confirmed my check with another department person, they said I should receive the check within a 7 or so days after they received/confirmed my certs. I checked my status the same day and it had been updated to shipped. Now I just hope it gets delivered to my parents house safely.

P.S. There's a karma dance?

Still waiting on IOG to credit my final offer. Tried calling today, on hold for 20 mins before I had to drop off and take another call.

I found my link to the site and all that is showing up is page 3 offers, which are all hosting, sat. TV, dental and loans.

Will wait till I get ahold of them and ask if I can't just send in the copies of emails I got from my last offer and get the offer credited manually.

on gadgetcity, my status never changed. They told me that I should "ship early next week" on 6/1. On 6/8 I got an email from Tech depot with a UPS tracking number stating my item was shipped. I'd guess that if you haven't heard anything yet, you will soon.

I'm waiting on credit for Trimlife on IOG. I wonder if YFD is having credit issues.

They told me on the phone today (I called and got in less than 2 mins on hold) that they have a new process where a manager gets involved to process the manual credits. This manager will get my manual credit request today and they do all of them on Mondays. She told me to call back in two weeks if I don't see a status change and "we'll see what we can work out" (her exact words).

This is my last one (5 credits approved and printed so far) for a Palm Treo 650 (which I already got tired of waiting and bought one through Sprint). Wishing I would have gone for $1,000 check or something else worth more, but hey, it's worth waiting a little longer for this.

Ya, that is what they tell everyone. They don't have a crediting problem. They just want to drag out the process and make you wait another 3 months to get your sutff. I would just go ahead and complete another offer. I am guessing they won't credit you for another two months or so.

Yeah, that's probably true. But with it being only one offer credit left and the only page that is showing up on my bookmarks is Page 3 and all of the offers are OOD, it's almost worth it to wait, given the cost of the freebie could be outweighed by the cost to do an OOD.

We'll see what happens in two weeks.

Is anybody waiting on a gift from InternetOpinionGroup (IOG)? I've been confirmed for 8 weeks. I call today because my email says to contact them if I don't receive my gift in 6-8 weeks.

After being on hold for 30 minutes, I get through. I explain the situation to the CSR and she says her computer is acting up. I go on hold for a minute or two. She comes back and says her computer isn't working properly and that I need to call back again.

So I guess i haev to re register, but I don't understand how exactly that works. Will I have to sign up AGAIN for Gamefly and nicktoons? Also, am I allowed to sign up for 3 things on the same page or do I have to do 1 for each page (I reallly don't want to do the credit cards)

OK well screw the everyfreegift.com, I'm not signing up for a credit card

I am currently on yourgiftcard.com, and I complelted the offer (video professor), and I got an email from vid professor saying its completed, but my account still shows pending. How long does it take to change?

If you've sent in the forms already, I would say you are ok. A phone call should confirm that.

Indeed, you should be fine. They made some changes to the site, and supposedly that is what caused a lot of people's accounts to show zero approvals. If you give them a call, they'll probably tell you everything looks normal from that end ) . I had the same problem.

It usually takes about 7-10 days for them to mark the forms as received in their system. This won't show up on your account page at AFG and your gift probably won't show up as 'shipped' until long after you get the item. Give them a call and find out when the forms were received, and just play the waiting game. Expect to receive the item within the 6-8 week time frame. You'll probably have to call them and harass 'em a half a dozen times.

Good luck )

No, you will be fine. Most people do that, I believe, and I think you can even change gifts once you start doing offers if you realllly need to. YFD may have changed that policy, but back when I started to work on a present from BW I was allowed to change gift cards.

shifting gears...

does anyone know where the items are shipped from? the reason that i ask is that the day i sent in my confirmations is the day that apple introduced the most recent ipods. i called CS but they had no idea whether i would get the old or new nano. does netblue order from a merchant like some sites do or if they ship from their own stock?

anyone?

beammeup4

23-09-2006 22:53:30

From what I remember, both the RAZR and the Gameboy I received came from different vendors that Netblue contracts with. My RAZR is actually was shipped from Hong Kong and has instructions in Chinese as well as Chinese radical symbols on the keypad.

unknown uchiha

24-09-2006 01:53:43

beammeup4, I believe they shipped it from a foreign country because they purchased it unlocked. Where did you get the Gameboy from?

OMG! Saying "Gameboy" sounds insanely retro...

I unfortunately don't remember, but I know it wasn't a foreign company.

Interesting... I didn't expect that they would ship from China. I got a shuffle from ipodsweepstakes and they just bought it from circuitcity and shipped it to my house. i was hoping for something similar from netblue.

It's been months since I checked my internetopiniongroup.com account for my Treo 650.

Stil waiting for credit for Trimlife, even though I had called them several times for credit and sent them copies of my bank statements that showed when I was charged for completing the offer.

Since I signed up, they have added one more offer required for a total of 7 needed. I've done 5 so far and need the Trim Life credit to make 6.

This thing was started back on Feb 27th. Guess I should give another call to see where things are.

The one nice thing is when you log into your account, there is a link to the offers page with updated offers to complete. And since they updated their web site a month or two ago, things seem more outlined and clear on what your account status is.

IOG update

Out of the blue, I get this email from IOG Support. It says if I want credit for Ultima Weight Loss Patch, I need to send in proof.

Well, I didn't do that offer, but decided I would respond to the email with proof from the offer I did that still hadn't been credited yet.

An hour later, I get a reply saying my offer was credited.

Not sure if I can post the email addy that you need to send the offer to, but if anyone has something that isn't credited yet, let me know and I'll be happy to help.

Yeah, I'm working on an iPod, and for me it says 0 out of 5, but there's only 4 pages of offers to do 1 each. I asked YFDirect CS about it a few weeks ago (asked if there's 5, which page do I do the 5th offer from), and they said I only had to do 4 offers. whew. Hopefully, all my offers should go approved sometime this week as I completed all of them September 12.

I would recomend calling them if you do not think their email's answer your question in full. In the past people were able to do any offer off any page but i do believe YF has gone through a great deal of change and doing offers on incorrect pages will most likely create problems.

Yes, 45 days after an offer changed to "in progress," it should automatically change to approved. If an offer does not go to "in progress" within 45 days, you need to request manual credit.

You actually receive credit (the offer company reports back that you completed the offer to YF Direct) once your status changes to "in progress". If this doesn't change within the 45 days it won't ever. The 45 day is just like a "Turn On" switch so, the ones that did credit, you can act upon those and redeem your gift.

what are you trying to say the site is like Ideal. I know the offers saying in progress will eventully say compete and the ones saying pending wont. i did the $100 gift card site recently and waited 45 days none went complete emailed them and they were complete. And when you email them and ask they say wait 45 days anyway none will say complete in a week or how many days your expecting to wait till 45 days.

If I would have edited my post you most likely wouldn't have seen it. I posted below it and you actually QUOTED the "edited" question and still replied 45 days. Therefore you must have read it.

And just because I did an offer and it hasn't gone "in progress" doesn't mean it never will. I just did it yesterday. Some of the offers take time to go to "in progress". And if it never goes to "in progress" and it's been 45 days, you can always apply for manual credit.

I've noticed it does take sometimes a few days to switch to in progress and the day it goes to in progress... 45 days later it should go to complete if not then you can request manual credit and wait another 45 days.

cubbieco

26-05-2007 01:07:39

So just to clarify, you must wait 45 days before you can ask for a manual credit? And its safe to say that if it still says pending after a couple of weeks then you'll need to ask for a manual credit when the time comes?

In other words, it never goes directly from pending to completed, it always says in progress at some point. Right?

I was just wondering about what exactly this 45 day wait is. Do I have to be a member of the offer still at the end of the 45 days, or can I cancel prior to that (like when the offer status changes to "in progress")

cubbieco

04-06-2007 16:59:27

As far as I can tell once it changes to "in progress" then they have the credit set up and you can do whatever you want at that point.

We don't talk specifics about cancellations though. Make sure you do offers you are interested in and give them a fair evaluation before you make any decisions.

Not really ood's. Hosting, 1 poker, diet sites type of offers on the last page and 4 normal offers. I almost guarantee you will need manual credit so keep your confirmation emails and CC statement.

kingsmoit

Well, did you use different email addresses across sites?

If not, you're possibly screwed. I personally keep a spreadsheet for any site I do.

Best bet is to get your CC statement, cross off all the ones accounted for, and see what's left. See if you clicked on it for a YFD site and match the date.

If you still have a problem, I would try to guess and hope you're right.

I had a very negative experience with YFD Direct, personally, but maybe they'll be more helpful for you.

diggy

05-08-2007 07:36:49

I'd say if you can't remember what offers you did you have no right asking for manual credit on them, but that's just me. Keep track of your stuff so you have a case to make, otherwise, you got nothing.

You know will all the fuss people made over the 10 offer macbook at sleeknewlaptops (ideal, now costs 1 referral) I'm surprised nobody has talked about the 9 offer macbook at yourgiftcentral.com (yes yfdirect).

1 - 3 - 2 - 3

The last page is OOD, but there are 7 different hosting plans, a few diet plans, etc. In other words the last page is not all that difficult to find something of interest. The other pages are just your standard offers that are everywhere else.

This is the next site that I am going to do.

Ideal may have more "bang for the buck" per se, but since you will have to repeat offers that don't credit it's worth it to pay a little more for offers using a company that cares about customer service.

He completed 12 offers, but only two have credited so far. Good thing I told him to take screenshots and save the conf. emails -)

Yes. This is the biggest problem that I personally have with YFD. When I did the offers for my Xbox 360 from Gadget City I completed 4 offers, two of which cost me a total of $40 that instantly changed to "In Progress" (because I was scared by people into keeping a subcription for the 45 days that I was waiting) and two other offers for a total of $5 that I canceled within the 14 day trial period which stayed "Pending", and ironically, ALL except one of the subscription offers turned "Approved" on or near the 45 mark.

Don't worry about it, you should be fine. D

so far I'm thrilled with the service from YFD.
They're very helpful on the phone, ive never waited longer than 2 minutes to talk to someone.

You can fax or email your manual credit in for a very fast turnaround.

As far as I've seen, anything in progress will roll over to approved right at 45 days, if it doesnt flip from pending to in progress you need to get manual credit. so far, ive gotten manual credit very easily on everything.

once you mail in certs at the end, they update your status within a week.

I'm not sure about the timing for the 500 GC sites, but I did yourgiftcards.com as a "test" for YFD and it approved immediately, I mailed in the cert, and I got a $50 check within 2 weeks. $3 in and $50 out in 2 weeks is good enough for me to trust the company so far.

it doesnt matter you can get manual credit if you have confirmation emails an cc statements.

the are being pretty good about manual right now.

Hey guys I have a question....

I did all my offers on 8/23, but "looked at" some offers on 8/19, however I also "checked the terms" of a couple of offers on 8/27 after I looked em up.

Does the 45 days thing work per offer, or per your account since you first started? Or.. do they just count from the last offer you did, erm if I was to click the offer link -TODAY- would that set my account back another 45 days? o_O

Obviously it doesn't work against the first offers, otherwise my "In progress" offers would've gone to complete by now.. lisighli

If it is in progress, that means it will credit 45 days after you did the offer. For the ones that didnt credit, you need to send them proof you did the offer after 45 days.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong; that means we should get a check for $1,699 or $1,799 depending on the site you complete (even though those particular TVs are a little outdated and cost a lot less now)? The cheaper of the two is 12 offers and the other is 14 (both require 4 offers on the last page). The links are below )

[quotec8b4fd7207="mistertomlinson"]( I asked for that link like a page ago... no response... but I did find a couple of HDTV sites and I've read YFD doesn't send actual gifts, but checks instead (I'm a complete YFD newb and just got credit for all 4 offers on their $500 site) and these two TVs have a retail value of $1,699 and $1,799. Someone correct me if I'm wrong; that means we should get a check for $1,699 or $1,799 depending on the site you complete (even though those particular TVs are a little outdated and cost a lot less now)? The cheaper of the two is 12 offers and the other is 14 (both require 4 offers on the last page). The links are below )

I did Great Fun on Gadget City days ago and it still says "pending." My other three offers are listed "in progress."

Is this unusual for Great Fun? How long should I wait before asking for manual credit or doing another offer?

My Great Fun took about 5-6 days to credit. Everything else went instant or the next day, i was getting a little worried but it did go to In Progress.

if it doesnt, call up gadgetcity on day 45 and send it in for manual credit. they are excellent at customer service and it should be creditted in less than 2 days

Do we now have to send a W9 in for all YFD prizes regardless of value? The terms on their sites say it's only for gifts valued at $600 or more, but a customer service e-mail I just received includes the following

[quote4fa3aa7fe8]Please be advised that we are required by law to notify the IRS regarding your gift. You will be required to submit a W9 form to us as part of the gift fulfillment process regardless of the value of the gift award.[/quote4fa3aa7fe8]

if its the only gift you have recieved or plan to recieve form them then maybe you could argue them but better to just send it.

dmorris68

06-11-2007 12:14:36

I don't see arguing about it doing you any good -- if it's their policy, you send it or don't get paid. Period. They can require whatever they want, as long as it's legal.

Many freebie networks require one for any value of prize, in the event you earn more from them later. It's not a big deal, really -- I really wish people would stop getting hung up on the W9 issue. You are required to claim all freebie earnings on your taxes whether you completed a W9 or not. The W9 is just documentation required to be maintained by the payor, it's not something sent to the IRS anyway. They might decide to 1099 you anyway -- the $600 threshold is the point where they are REQUIRED to 1099 you, but they can choose to do so at any amount. Again, regardless, you are obligated to claim even $10 as income.

If it's a matter of trusting them with your personal info, then the answer is simple don't do business with a company you don't trust. Freebies are a business transaction, and business transactions involve exchanging such information. It's the real world, and you'll do the same with any other business that pays or lends you money or anything else of value. Get used to it.

I've read through the entire thread, but I must be misunderstanding some of the posts since I've read that Gadget City sends out checks no matter what, AND that they send out the gifts themselves. So can someone clearly answer these questions

Does Gadget City always send out a check in place of the gift, or are there exceptions? (Do they only send out checks on certain items? Do they only send out checks if they don't have that item in stock? Do you need to ask them for a check? etc...)

If they only send out checks for certain items, would a check be send out the a 360 Elite?

Thanks for your time, after reading through this thread I see that many people answering these questions were getting really pissed at repeating the same answer. (And I bet these questions could qualify...) But I'm getting unclear answers. Thanks again.

Manual credit is great if you have confirmation email and CC statement. If you only have an email then there might be some delay in it going through.

Make sure you take screen shots for YFD sites now.

I did Internetopiniongroup.... did the initial 4 offers. they said i didn't do one on page 3, so i did another site on page 3.

today i call in and they are telling me, i need another for page 3. and that the initial 4 i did were only on page 1 and 2. so now i'm forced to do 6 offers rather than 4.

I called in after I did my replacement to MAKE SURE i had it right...now they are telling me that when I called initially, i already did my replacement...so i needed to do ANOTHER replacement bc I was missing 2 total.

fuck them...

i told her a lto of peopel are complaining about this but she said no one has complain.

i know this has happened to you guys...call in and bitch at them changing up pages. i did not fucking do 4 offers on the first 2 pages and left the third completely empty.

that is because you need to go through the entire survey thing when signing up, or atleast that is my case.

Question on how to read YF status page. I am doing a $500 GC (on yourtopbrands) for 3 offers. My status page shows that an offer is completed but it also still says 1 offer is needed on each of the three offer pages. The text is below. Why does the page 2 line (where I did this offer) still say 1 offer is needed? How do I know they credited my offer to the correct page, or any page?

How do I get my password for a YFD site? I went to the online form that it points to to create one but it's telling me that No user was found w/ my email address (the offer pages show my email addresses so I obviously did sign up). I tried their online help email form but because they aren't recognizing my email address that won't go through either.

There used to be a link to use, such as http//www.getitonus.com/confirmation.jsp?email=

but that just gives me a "page not found" error.

My last offer I did, I faxed in a manual credit request for Keen Psychic Readings last Monday and they still haven't gotten back to me. is this an offer that gives people a lot of shit?

wierd, i have neverrrr seen that. I mean, EVER. and Ive done probably 8 yfd sites.

All my certs would show 60 days in advance of when I printed them. so if I printed them on 6/20, they would say they expired on 8/20. but if I reprinted them on 7/20, those wouldn't expire until 9/20....

thats atleast how it has always been for me...

I am kind of new trying this stuff, but I have been keeping an eye on how it works for a while. I am currently participating in two yfd sites both requiring 4 offers. On each site, two of the four offers are in progress and were in progress immediately after meeting the requirements. The other two offers are still pending after two weeks now even though I have met the requirements. should i just keep waiting? why did the other two change immediately? Can I do anything to speed this along?

viperklt21

29-01-2008 07:46:01

It will take 45 days for them to credit no matter the offer for YF Direct. They have been known to not go in progress and just credit until that last day (the 45th day) So basically just wait a couple of more weeks until that 45th day passes and if for some reason they don't credit send in a MCR.

and welcome to the boards.

yoo guys this will be my first YFD site ever. looking through all 21 pages of this thread, is it safe to say that once you move to "IN PROGRESS" status on your offers, it's GUARANTEED that your offers (that's in IN PROGRESS) will approve on the 45th day? even if i cancel early cuz i don't like the product, they won't hold that against me?

Right, if it goes to "in progress" you got credit for it, and it will approve on the 45th day. If it doesn't go to in progress, no big deal either because you can apply for manual credit after 45 days.

Web.com upped the price recently a couple dollars, the pop-up isn't updated to reflect this. Yes, you will still get credit. Web.com usually takes about 3 weeks to go to "in progress"... sometimes it doesn't at all, but as I said, manual credit is a relatively painless process and only takes a couple days to resolve.

I was able to check my status last night for a few hours, then it wouldn't let me log back in. But then I requested a password got the email and changed it. Once again was able to see my status for a few hours. Then this morning of course can't log on. So I give them a call (VERY nice cs) she so graciously changed it, she said wait about a half an hour. It's been an hour and a half still isn't work. lisighli I mean I know nothing will change until 45-50 days, but how will I be able to print my certs if I can't even log on to my page?

They don't deny credit very often so I'm kind of surprised by that unless there was some kind of cookie problem.

I got 2 more weeks until one of my other offers I did late to go approved (it's already 'in progress') and I'll be good to go. I did getfreexbox.net - $530 check for 4 offers.

Hey does anyone know how easy it is to change your home address if you move? I would like to get started on some of these sites, but I'll be moving in less than 3 months and would hate to lose my gift if they don't forward to your new address!

I had a gift shipped to a different address. I started a $100 1 offer GC back in early 2006, then moved in the fall (which is when I decided to remember to redeem it) and had it shipped to my new address. No problems for me!

No, you're good. When your 45 days are up, you will most likely need to call then they will manually switch them over to approved so you can get your links to print out the certs.

the minimoo plan

I have not received credit for the minimoo as of yet, but I have a screen capture of the terms along with the confirmation page and it only says you must make a purchase in your cart ... that's it. What purchase you make should be irrelevant. This is troubling news. If you made a purchase on the day "pending" shows up on your account ... they are saying you did not actually sign up through their website ... I hope my screen captures of the terms/confirmation page with the terms/ and cart with the terms are enough proof so they can't arbitrarily deny me credit.

What was the other offer you were denied manual credit? I still have FTD and 12-in-1 as pending and that FTD offer wasnt cheap.

What happens when you are denied manual credit ... do you only have 60 days to complete another offer, i.e. it will take another 45 days for that replacement offer so you've got only 15 days to send the forms in AND THAT assumes the replacement credits ....

Did it ever go "In Progress" for you? It took several days but it eventually went In Progress for me. I don't expect to see it credit for 45 days, but that's okay as I intend to keep it for a long time. I just canceled BB Online (my very first freebie offer from Gratis) after like 3 years. I'm really liking Netflix so far and will probably keep it for years as well. Hopefully I won't have any trouble with it crediting...

If the offer goes "In Progress" than it DID credit, and will turn over to approved over 45 days. So there is no way it could have been In Progress for RTS... if it did he wouldn't of needed manual credit.

Ah, gotcha -- as I said, I'm somewhat a YFD n00b. I assumed Approved meant credit. )

Well! After extensive time on the phone with both Netblue AND FatCow, I discovered something FatCow does not give any referral credit unless you've had the account open for at least 90 days. GAH!

Sooooooooo what do you think I should do? Wait another 30 days to see if it credits? Do an expensive (~$100) replacement? Apply for a credit card as a replacement? If I've never applied for a credit card before, how much will it ding my credit score?

If you've never applied for a credit card, then I suspect your credit score isn't that robust to begin with, unless you just have an awful lot of loans. The ding from an application will be miniscule to not even noticeable compared to the score boost you'll get from having a CC. Just don't max it out.

You shouldn't ask for, nor should anyone give you, advice on which offers to complete. That's tantamount to TOS violations and offer fraud. You just choose an offer that you're legitimately interested in trying, and possibly keeping.

If I recall, I think you have to print certs for each offer now... yeah. So, you have only gotten credit for that one offer and have been given your form for that. You have to wait until you get credit for the other offer and they will allow you to print the form for it. Sounds retarded, I know.

whats the latest procedure regarding getting YFD to change offers status from "in progress" to "approved"?

is it as simple as writing them an email? Or has it become as complex as getting manual credit (where you have to call them, give them your email addy, confirmation # etc?).

I am asking b'c ebay internet auction kit never send me a confirmation email, even though it went to "in progress" immediately. And I would be screwed if YFD needs a confirmation # in order to change the offer status from "in progress" to "approved" (

Got no e-mail reply, but I logged in today to see one offer Approved with a link to print the cert. Ironically, it's an offer I canceled -- the offer I'm still paying for (Netflix) is still showing "In Progress." Guess I'll wait another day or two and ask again. I'm not printing the first cert since I think the expiration clock starts ticking on the first form, at from what I've heard.

Yeah I plan on doing so tomorrow before work.

How long after they receive the certs does it take to actually get the gift? They send out GCs right?

quick question regarding the new fraud protection policy.

When you mail you the notrarized affidavit, w-9 form, and copy of driver license, do you have to re-mail in the certificates as well?

I mailed in my certificates about 3-4 weeks ago, and I didn't include the certs within the my package to YFD when I mailed in my affidavit, w-9 form, and copy of driver license. And I am wondering if that will come back and bite me in the (_|_).

They may take 90 days and may have to do things manually sometimes but they are by far the most reliable. I am hoping for a check but I will take a Wii, can easily be sold for retail.

"Submit a signed Affidavit of Eligibility warranting that neither you nor anyone in your household has ever received a prize from this website. If multiple accounts are found all accounts will be terminated and no rewards will be provided for any account."

I was always under the impression it was one gift per site. When I called a month or so ago to get my YourFreeWii offers approved, I asked if I could change the gift I had parked on FreeGameConsoles from Wii to PS3, or cancel that account (since I never did an offer) and re-sign up for a PS3. I was told no, once signed up and a gift selected, you are stuck with that gift on that site, and cannot do the site again for a different gift.

About 3 months ago, I was told that I could just sign up for the gift I wanted through that site again .. i.e. go to the beginning and sign up for the gift. So, you're not canceling the account, your just adding another gift to your account page. I'd call again if your interested, although things have changed so I dont know if there's a point.

[quotef4cf1fc179]Hello,

Thank you for contacting Customer Support.

Please send in proof of signing up with Ebay Internet Career Kit & Diet-to-Go to xxxxx@.com as an attachment or you can fax it to 1- 866-284-1166.

We require you submit three consecutive, complete credit card statements. The first credit card statement must show the date of the first charge made by the sponsor. We do not need to see the entire credit card number, but we will need to see the last four digits of the sequence. We must be able to see your name and physical address on the statement, the date the charge was made and the sponsorís name. Clearly mark which line the charge is on. Copied and pasted documents will not be accepted as valid proof.

Be sure to have your email address and web site clearly labeled on any document you send in and indicate which date you signed up for that offer at our site. We cannot process your request without this information.

Once we receive your paperwork, we will update your account accordingly.

Thank you,

The FreeIpodPlayers Team[/quotef4cf1fc179]

Is it normal for them to ask 3 consecutive charges? I can't really provide what they were asking cuz I cancelled Internet Career before it expired. Diet2go- I bought something from them.

I copied/pasted everything in the MS-Word but looks like it's not acceptable. They are rather picky. I should have paid my own iPod touch than going with this company. I was curious with them so I signed up. Honestly, this is going to be my last with YFD. Well, it's time to printscreen shot the proof.. weeee!

With YFD, you can call them anytime and ask about the status of your account. They have no problem telling you and also giving you advise as to how long you have to wait and when to call back again. Initially, dont worry that your offers dont show as being credited. After 45 days they will manual credit it, usually by having you either fax or email your proof. I suggest calling them a few days after manually request is made to be sure they recd it. Sometimes it gets lost somewhere. Keep checking your status to see if you can print your certificates. If its not happening, then call them like I said. Once certs, affidavit, W9 are recd by them, it takes up to another 6-8 weeks to receive the check. I have gotten mine sooner than the 6-8 weeks. You can almost always count on needing to get a manual credit after the initial 45 days. I have done many of the YFD sites and I dont recall any that didnt need at least 1 manual credit. FYI the phone number to call is (801) 316-0555.
The biggest gripe I have is the newest requirements for offers. They have increased the amount of money that must be spent by now requiring minimum purchases for most of their advertisers, particularly on the last 2 pages of offers. Its gotten so costly that it may not be financially feasible to complete them. They notify you in each of the popups when you click on the ads, just like before.

We'll see if anything comes of it. I'm past 60 days and still no credit for 3 offers that all went to in progress right away. They might just be bent at me b/c I bitched about the extra $50 on a the wii site a while back too. Who knows....

Yup, I had to go that route and my offers were approved the day the BBB forwarded my complaint to them. I sent my certs in and had no problem getting the form to be notarized. That got dropped in the mail this morning, so we'll see how the rest of it goes.

So I completed 9 offers for the Anyfreelaptop site. One of which (Startlogic hosting) credited for a different reward where I had just clicked on it once. I know for a fact that I completed it on the correct gift. They say they will not transfer credits and I should not have completed it from a different reward. In addition, they will not give me credit for a Sitesell offer saying that I must still be a member. All the offer said was to purchase a one year plan, not to continue to keep it. I evaluated it and chose not to remain a member as it did not fit my needs.

I have been through the BBB and Netblue simply repeats the same information to me. Anything I can do short of redoing more of these offers?

If you cancel a hosting plan like Startlogic in the first 90 days then netblue doesn't get paid for you doing it so they probably don't want to count it. Since it mentioned the 1 year plan they might fight it with you even if you go do the BBB.

On an unrelated note I had a couple of crediting issues with everyfreegift.com, shot them an email and received a response in a couple of days. I sent back the manual credit request and the credit was there overnight. I know from reading posts above that many people have had bad luck reaching them and getting things to happen, maybe I'm just lucky.

They did ask for 3 months of credit card statements for a manual credit for dish network, I just sent them the dish network bills instead and it worked just fine.

Just reporting my luck. I sent the manual request to the offer_confirmations email. Didn't hear anything back for just over a week then sent an email to support_tier1 stating I hadn't heard back and received a reply within a day (today) with the credits. Seems to be hit or miss and/or the like me better for some reason. -)

I seriously hate to be one of [ic648d83a91]those[/ic648d83a91] people... but, is there a decent YFD site available at the moment? I understand OODs will be mandatory, but don't mind doing a few. I was hoping for a minimum of $1,000, but preferably more... anything reasonable? Thanks for any help.

wiebelhaus03

02-02-2009 16:02:19

no, only thing you can do is 4 3 offer wii sites at $250-300 a piece

No OODs? Links?

I would seriously appreciate it. I need a new car.

no ood's, and i know there are for sure 3 probably more, but sorry i'm too lazy to find them right now. If you look i'm sure you'll find the links though

If your still looking for sites to get money for your car, try this one http//www.anyfreelaptop.com/dest?id=374&promoid=101248

I think it's YFD, there are OOD's but nothing too horrible.
(SiteSell $299, 30-day money back guarantee if not satisfied)
(FatCow $99, 30-day partial money back guarantee if not satisfied)

Also, there is a very small selection, so small that you have to do a dish network offer to complete the requirements. I'm at college so I couldn't do one so I asked if I could do a different offer or an offer twice. This is their response

"Hello, Thank you for contacting Customer Support. If there are other offers listed on Top Offer pages 3 & 4 that do not require that you are a new member, you may sign up for them again. The requirements for each offer are listed on the pop up boxes that appear when you click on the offer at our website."
The AnyFreeLaptop Team

Good to know, so you can do offers like Diet-To-Go twice and fatcow.com twice instead of being forced to do one of the dish offers.
BTW the macbook pro is 15 offers to complete and your reward is $1899. They also have an 12-offer black macbook valued at 1499 and an 18-offer macbook air, not sure what the value is for that though.

I wouldn't count on money back guarantees. If the offer doesn't go in progress, you have to show that you never got a refund to get manual credit, which means submitting three months of credit card statements... you could literally spend 2 grand trying to get something free...

nygiantzrock

25-03-2009 10:13:30

Really? Eh.. I thought you would only have to show the initial charge and the confirmation email. I guess I should reconsider doing the site.
Even if it says that you need to get a subscription for SiteSell for $299 and you make the initial purchase and then don't like the service? It seems like if the pop up box just says you need to make a $299 payment then that would be the only charge you would have to show.

I tried it and was denied.

25-03-2009 10:59:07

I was denied as well, even with multiple BBB complaints that their terms did not say anything about keeping it.

LucaBella

25-03-2009 11:51:38

I never did the offers for emarketpanel intending to cancel, so when they told me to provide 3 months of statements for FatCow, I could. but like others are saying, if you can't provide that three months to prove that you didn't get a refund, you're screwed. Basically they'll say that the reason you never got credit was because of your refund, when of course, that's a lie. If you do an offer and wait 29 days before making any decisions, and the offer never goes in progress.. it's obvious.

nygiantzrock

25-03-2009 13:22:37

Oh, oh thanks for the info guys. Good to know before I dive into doing the offers.

bruman

09-10-2009 12:39:54

Wasn't there a time frame of like 2 weeks or something from the time they've approved your certificates to the time you have to get the notarized affidavit/scanned drivers license out to them?
I don't see it in the TOS..

Also, this may be the paranoid in me talking, but will it be okay to access my account and print out the affidavit and such from another household? I moved into a new apartment and don't have a printer.

kinneylamb

09-10-2009 14:49:08

bruman, there's 1 extra step thats why. they update your account when they receive your certificates, then you have 2 weeks to mail the rest of the papers to them.

its ok to print it from another computer, you are only printing stuff they authorized for you. plus you gotta mail your ID to prove who you are anyway.

LucaBella

09-10-2009 20:42:28

Bruman, they send you an email (which always seems to go into the spam folder) and it has a specific date telling you when when you MUST have your paperwork back to them, or you'll get nothing. check your mail, and get that notarized form out as quickly as possible, overnight it if the time is short.

YF direct now requires you to keep many of their cheaper offers for THREE months, and they now have the larger prizes requiring 6 offers on the last page, which often has less than 6 offers available, or a couple of those offers will be impossible, like Elite Jets, where you have to charter a private jet for around 20 grand. Yeah... that seems reasonable

kinneylamb

10-10-2009 19:46:01

you can also check your account page every day around the time they should receive your certificates. they send the email the same day they update the account page, so if you dont get the email, then its 14 days from the day they updated it.

bruman

11-10-2009 10:29:01

Cool, thanks for the replies everybody.. and actually, I just figured it out.

I printed out the Affidavit and on there it states the 14-day clause. But it's 14-days from when you print the affidavit. It even says (since I printed it today)

"blah blah blah within 14 days of SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11th"

I'm glad I'm finally done with this site. First offer was completed March 08 )

topbillin1

10-12-2009 10:34:56

I signed up at gadgetcity back in 2007 and went for a elite for 4 offers, I never did the site and I'm trying to do it now.

However, I deleted my email they have on file but I remembered my log in information.

Will they assist me in changing my email? And will they still acknowledge the older terms?

wiebelhaus03

10-12-2009 10:47:15

why not just find a different gift? they only give out checks anyways so you could only be getting a couple hundred for an xbox 360......

also, i believe they have a clause in their T&C that says you have 180 days to complete everything

orangejuice

10-12-2009 11:16:15

isnt YF practically dead now? dont they make you keep offers for 30 days or something?

Glad I got my $500 check from these guys a couple months ago.

Looks like they're completely dead now.. all their sites are gone.
