This thread is for discussion on TheRewardDepot and all of their sites.

I googled it and didnt figure out if it was legit or not.

But when I googled it I also saw that they have an 8 offer macbook air offer as well.

Seems too good to be true, hopefully someone can show otherwise.

I signed up, but when you go to the gift status page they ask for your email and password. Problem is, they never give you a password. I clicked "forgotten password and they say they'll send it within 24 hours. We'll see I guess.

Nvr said I was talking about the original link.

Anyways, some weird wording in TOS

4.3 Waiting Period. You must remain an active member for at least 30 days and observe a 30 day waiting period for completion of all Sponsor offers.

tylerc

11-07-2008 18:04:11

I think I've heard that posted before and people said that it means you have to be a member at the laptop site and wait 30 days there before the offers show as completed.

Does anyone know if this is legit? I'm signed up and really want to do this if it's legit.

RyanG

11-07-2008 18:05:11

Dunno, password was never sent and when you request a new one it can take up to 24 hours.

tylerc

11-07-2008 18:11:49

Yeah, I cleared my spam out in case I get it, but I requested it a little bit ago.

orangejuice

11-07-2008 18:54:58

I guess that network is out, they are taking the terms of nuitech again...hold all offers for 30 days.

tylerc

11-07-2008 18:56:12

NuiTech is 60 days, and all but 2 offers. I don't think their terms mean the same thing.

orangejuice

11-07-2008 19:26:33

right most of those offers cost 80 bucks a month. 80 x 8 = not worth it

Daggoth

11-07-2008 19:28:31

orangejuice

11-07-2008 21:43:56

plus taxes = - 400, for me anyway. ok so thats still 800. not to bad. but has anyone proved this network is legit?

tylerc

11-07-2008 22:34:53

If we get confirmation it's legit I'm doing it, but I'm not wasting 8 offers on a site that might not be legit.

A lot of the offers are 1 dollar trials. I don't know, we'll see if they send the password out, but I'm thinking it's not a legit company. I'll contact their CS later today.

zr2152

12-07-2008 07:15:22

The footer looks similar to an I-Deal site but the offers do not. Also, when you close out the offer window, 2 I-Deal offer windows pop up...


something to think about.

Check your spam for email==YourLaptopSavings@progressingaspconfirm.comYourLaptopSavings@progressingaspconfirm.com=YourLaptopSavings@progressingaspconfirm.comYourLaptopSavings@progressingaspconfirm.com/email. I got a confirmation email seconds after I signed up. And about the 30 day wait period, how I'm interpreting it is that you have to wait 30 days before they mail you anything. If it doesn't specifically say cancelation of offers (like Niutech) then your free to interpret it otherwise.

EDIT Ok maybe its just a newsletter spam email but it wont hurt to try if it does anything (other than fill my inbox with more junk).

Again, please allow 24 hours to receive this email as we batch all requests nightly.





3. When can I expect my gift?



Please allow up to 45 days for offer confirmation from our sponsors. Once we have received confirmation we will send out your free gifts.

Hey guys, you should try your email then password is 'password' (sensitive case!). It works for me. Then you can just change or update your password as soon as your login!

Let me know if this works for all of you )

Note If the password ('password') didn't work. I'd recommend that you guys send an email= to email=support@therewarddepot.comsupport@therewarddepot.com to email=support@therewarddepot.comsupport@therewarddepot.com/email

They did replied to me and confirmed that my password is 'password'.

Hope this helps!

I tried to register, and it said I wasn't eligible. I tried another email, and when I went to log in I saw that my other email address and password was already saved. I logged in and saw that like 6 sites were listed, I never completed one, I just signed up to see what the requirements were, like a year ago. Now I remember what company this is, I never did their sites because of the oods on the last page, but it looks like it's better now...

heather77

16-07-2008 11:37:40

Hmm, I just remembered, when I was signing up for those other sites, I had one (I think it was an airline gc) that for some reason had a redemption link when I logged in, even though I didn't do the site. I sent it in anyway, thinking what the hell, but of course I never got anything. Maybe they think I got a prize already and that's why I'm not eligible.

http//www.opinionresearchpanel.com/offer?CG=692&PID=103&SID=2548 $1,000 Visa (beats having to sell something and saves a little on taxes)
http//www.opinionresearchpanel.com/offer?CG=775&PID=103&SID=3948 LG Washer/Dryer Combo (listed as $1,800 value)
http//www.shoppersreviewnetwork.com/offer iMac (listed as $1,500 value)

Thanks for being the guinea pig benny. I was thinking about doing 1 offer to start, just to make sure it credits.

And probably the best of them all. 42" Samsung plasma, xBox 360 AND GTA4

I was just looking around and I saw the company's name (DirectGiftCardPromotions LLC and ConsumerBargainGiveaways LLC) mentioned in this. It shows them being sued by Southwest Airlines earlier this year for "Trademark Infringement". I don't know how good or bad that is. Unfortunately you can't see anymore than what this site shows unless you log in.

I would go for the black Macbook personally, I mean shit it's $2,500. But the plasma deal looks pretty slick as well. I don't know it just seems shady to me, the site layout isn't that great and I haven't heard from anyone whos ever recieved a gift from them.

I wouldn't advise anyone doing any offers until Roll, SkatingCrippled, topbillin1, anyone else that's doing it, or I say that the offers are going through. Seeing as we're only in the first week in, it maybe a while until any concrete evidence shows that it's ok. If you want to park the site for now, that would be advisable.

Ok, Its The Reward Depot. I should have realized it earlier when you all were talking about emaling them. Thats the page it goes to to email them. I found 2 complaints on them. One from last year and the other from this month. Both are on RipOffReport.com Hopefully they have been around for a while because 2 complaints wouldnt be bad. Being that 1 complaint was from last year, they apparently were around aleast a year. Thats all I could find.

slambam

21-07-2008 15:55:20

I found all those links through google. Don't really recall what i searched to get them, just a bunch of random stuff. I think every freebie site is on ripoffreport, so only 2 complaints is pretty good.

I-Deal was in the middle of buying it when that 6 offer Plasma was going around.


Now it is Top-Notch Media, an I-Deal DBA.

Do not be surprised if the same thing is happening with this site.

Jump on it quick if you can but also wait for offer completion confirmation.

Unless they recently got bought out which would be why the offers changed i think i got taken.

Edit I also took a look at the terms in regards to crediting and as I interpret, it should take 30 days to receive credit.

Fortunately, day 31 will be the 30th day since you completed your offers and you are eligible to receive credits at this time, so I don't see why they wouldn't credit then. Any thoughts?

I agree with you. It does seem to read that way. As far as their clause regarding lawsuits, etc., I have never seen anything like that. I'm not even sure if that would hold up in court. I dont think they can take your right away, but I can certainly be wrong. This is a long shot...but are there any attorneys out there? Or maybe a student studying law?

As long as you agree to their terms and conditions then you are liable. BUT, if the judge finds that the clause they have is meant deliberately SCAM/SCREW you then you would be in the right. It is actually all up to the judge.

On a side note, the fact that they are an LLC usually means they are legit. It is not cheap to become an LLC.

The parent company, Acquisis, has its LLC from Delaware and it's registered agent is a company called CT, which has been in business for about 100 years and is reputed to be one of the most expensive agents in the state.

Acquisis is not registered as a LLC in Illinois. The Illinois address listed for the company comes up as an apartment building on a residential street when you do a Google Street View search.

Well, I dont expect anyone will hear anything before at least 30 days and I went with the $1000 gc because I have more use for that than anything else and I dont know if they actually send the items or checks. I cant imagine that they would pay for the shipping of the LG washer and dryer. The TV maybe, but the W & D, I dont think so. I could be wrong. Presuming of course that they are legit. I think they are or we would have read a lot of complaints on them. We'll see. Worse case scenerio, I did 8 offers for nothng. They didnt cost much. I just didnt want the 8 offers to jump to 10 or 12 before I had a chance to do it. And if they are legit, I'd like to have it before Christmas.

Well look, with YFD, you have to contact them in order to get the status to change from pending to processing, right? Never fails, every site of theirs that Ive done, I've had to get them to give manual credit. It could be the same here. If the advertisers dont report it to them that you completed the offers, they have no way of knowing. Give it a couple of days if you want, or just go ahead and contact them now. As long as the 30 days are up, you can certainly do that.

You'd be surprised, these companies ship a lot of things. I-Deal has shipped W&D sets before, as well as lawn tractors. Since these are shipped by freight, like most big TV's, the shipping cost isn't that much different as they all take roughly the same space on the truck. I think it's more about size/bulk than weight, and per pound it's a lot cheaper than a common carrier like UPS.

Certainly dont mention any of the sites where we have been posting, let them wonder. But do it in a friendly way, although I'm sure you're not feeling very friendly at the moment. You dont want to close the door, you want to find out what you can do to "fix" the problem they have with your email address. I have a feeling that you may have clicked on an unsubscribe link, and thats where this is coming from. If that's the case, I may have done that myself.

No offense, but I think you're a bit naive about how this industry operates. And also forgetting that many of us have been a part of this "industry" for a long time. A number of members here own or have owned sites, networks, and publishers, and therefore know the business from the inside as well.

Organized forums full of freebie "enthusiasts" are, by and large, the bane of all of these companies. Some tolerate us, some are even nice to us, but many hate us. As mentioned, some have even stipulated in their terms & conditions that members of such forums were not welcome and would be disqualified if discovered.

The bulk of profit by these companies come from breakage, which is the industry term describing an incomplete referral that does not comply with the T&C by not completing enough offers, not completing them correctly, giving up on manual credit requests, being DQ'd for whatever reason, etc. Breakage generates profit for the company through the contact information gathered (sold to spammers), those pages of annoying up-front surveys, plus any offers that are completed. Just signing up to their site and forgetting about it, without even looking at an offer, generates revenue for them. Anything that results in a non-completion saves the company from having to ship a prize to you, resulting in pure profit for them.

Without question their highest percent of breakage (i.e. profit) comes from "regular" customers, meaning people who know nothing of the industry and forums like this, and who just get lured in by spam e-mail or banner ads. [i64ae6c72f9]This is their target market.[/i64ae6c72f9] These customers don't know exactly how these sites work and the techniques required to ensure they get credit for their prize. In contrast, we enthusiasts know exactly how to properly complete sites and offers, thereby -- as a group -- we are not nearly as profitable, if not downright unprofitable (a prize payout seldom equates to the revenue generated by the customer). So for every customer that completes and earns their prize, a company must have a LOT of customers who fail. Hence the frequent antipathy or even hostility towards organized groups such as ours, and the rules many have against congas and such. People like us are NOT doing them any favors. Perhaps we generate a few more breakage customers who would normally be too skeptical to ever try, but hearing us talk about it being legit makes them give it a shot, only to become frustrated or impatient and failing to follow through -- but I doubt those numbers are anywhere near enough to compensate for our high percentage of completion as a group.

As freebie enthusiasts, we should always maintain a low profile and never draw attention to the fact that we are any different from an ordinary customer, unless it's a company that you know has a presence here and condones or tolerates such activity. You're right that many sites monitor these forums -- some agents of these companies even participate in our forum -- but as a rule the big companies frown upon us. Most of us cannot be tied as forum members to our freebie accounts, unless we post enough details to do so, so them monitoring the forums isn't enough to cause us individual problems. But with a new, unproven company such as this, it's definitely a bad idea to advertise to them that you participate in forums like these.

This is also why, in an effort to help bridge the gap between us and them, to ease hostility and encourage cooperation, we have the rules we do against encouraging fraud of any kind, canceling offers, walkthroughs, and anything else that violates their terms, further impacts their profits, and compromises our trust with them. The good relationships we DO have are tenuous at best and would be easily compromised if we openly promoted fraud and other terms violations that robbed them of their profits or even cost them money.

Im sure that everyone taht signed up for that site or any of them clicked the link on this forum, meaning they will know where the traffic came from.

So they know about this forum which isnt a good start. If it was my account and knew that someone was already DQed for a "Blacklisted" email, i wouldnt post my status on here for everyone to see.

Whatever though, it's not my account so i don't care. I just think that when someone like ilovetoys posts something like that (someone who has been doing this for a long time), people should listen.

I'm sure all of you are wondering what's going on with this site (or atleast those that are following this thread) and I would like to give you a little update. It's not much but it's as much as I can post for now. All 8 of my offers were approved and accounted for and a redemption form showed up on my account page. I mailed this from in a little bit ago and I'm waiting to hear back from the Fraud Department regarding my account. I've been in touch with the company lately and they have been kind enough to keep me updated. Unfortunately thats all I have at this time but I'll keep you posted. Until next time, I still wouldn't advise anyone to invest a substantial amount of money in this company until we can be sure they are legitimate.

Let's look at the market Brandarama's ship times are becoming more and more delayed every month. They're up to about a year wait now... I Deal used to have 10 offer $1,000 sites up all over the place, now if you find one, it certainly requires a referral. Hell, $500 will cost you 8 offers and in some cases a ref. As for YFD... well, I'm not sure but I've read plenty of complaints about some new implementations to their approval system and some people claiming they're "dead." I haven't cared enough to really read into the details.

Now, all of a sudden this site pops up with an amazing payout ratio. Considering the direction the industry is currently heading in, I don't understand how this company can pull off such low requirements/high payouts.

In the resale department, I just saw a new macbook air sell for 1300. So, you're going to get taxed on the full amount, 2500, and you'll get ebay/paypal fees .... so what are you really getting for 8 offers versus what you'd get for 8 offers for the $1000 visa? I think I'm still leaning toward the 4 offer $500 ... but Im still waiting ... best of luck all.

mistertomlinson

09-10-2008 19:33:38

They can't tax you for $2,500 if the gift ain't worth that. I'm sure someone else could explain it better than me, but you can claim the value of the gift come tax time, rather than what they say it's worth... besides, I don't think they would actually tax you for that much.

[quote3e47726e4e="mistertomlinson"]They can't tax you for $2,500 if the gift ain't worth that. I'm sure someone else could explain it better than me, but you can claim the value of the gift come tax time, rather than what they say it's worth... besides, I don't think they would actually tax you for that much.[/quote3e47726e4e]
Whether "legal" or not, they can and often do send you a 1099 for whatever value they want. I-Deal almost always sent out 1099's for more than the fair market value of their gifts. The only time I've seen it remotely accurate is when they send a check or gift card, in which case they don't have any wiggle room. Remember, the amount they send to you is a deduction for them, so the bigger the value they report, the bigger their own tax benefit.

The IRS does allow you to adjust a 1099 value to FMV for a gift, however it's a major hassle and if you don't do everything exactly right, you set yourself up for audit, penalties, or delays in tax refunds. First, you limustli have documentation [i3e47726e4e]from the time the gift was awarded[/i3e47726e4e] (not from the time you file taxes) showing what the going price was at that time, and as I understand it they want more than one advertisements to substantiate the market value. Also, the adjustment must be handled in a particular way, cannot be done on any shortform tax returns IIRC (must do a full 1040A), and last I attempted to do it through my tax software, there was nowhere in the software to enter it (and it wasn't clear where to manually enter it in forms mode).

So unless you use a tax professional that's familiar with this procedure, or do your taxes by hand and know the exact box to put this adjusted value, you'll run into problems doing this correctly. Bottom line submitting a tax return claiming one value while your 1099's (submitted separately to the IRS) have a different value will almost certainly cause your return to be scrutinized and held up. I decided it wasn't worth the extra cost and hassle, and just used the value on my 1099s even when I knew the value was inflated.

So with the terms and condition. Even though some trials are only a week or 2. We still have to stay until 30 days? Don't most companies charge a auto ship program and get charged for those products when you only want to try the trial? So is there a limit to how many products we can cancel after the trial. Or are we stuck with all the offers for 30 days? thanks i hope i get some more info on this before i start.

I have an update for you all to keep your mouth's watered. I've been going back and forth with customer service (which these guy's in my opinion is by far the best I've dealt with) regarding the new MacBook Air that Apple released a week or two ago and today I received and email stating the following

[ia2705d58f6]Dear Ben,

Apple is not shipping out the new MacBook Airs until early November, and it is likely that your gift will be shipped before that time. If it is, you will receive the original Macbook Air. We will send you an email with details and a tracking# once your gift has shipped.

Sound's like they're about to ship my laptop so thats good news. I suppose if I get the old one, I could just go to an Apple Store and exchange it for the new one. Of course Ill believe it when I see it. As usual, Ill keep you guys posted.

slambam

20-10-2008 11:38:51

That's why I started the plasma site last week. My answer to everyone questioning is this... They sound good so far. Someone has received a valuable gift, and others have yet to have any problems during the process. Offers end up being like $60 or something I think, so it's worth spending that, rather than waiting and having the offers skyrocket. Maybe they have me fooled, but it seems very legit, and I just want to get in on it before it's too late. If I end up getting burned, $60 isn't gonna kill me. Especially if they raise the offers and then burn me after doing an extra 4-6 offers.

If you are going to resell .. no .. I think the best value would be the apple gift card .... you'll probably get close to 1900 for the gift card, if not more ... the computer is likely only going to get you 1300 at most ... if that ... doesnt it retail at bestbuy, etc for 1400? My guess, its 8 offers for about 1100 or 12 offers for 1850 ...

tylerc

20-10-2008 14:54:16

Me
[i5949d7d93e]Dear Customer Service,

I have contacted Apple personally regarding the new MacBook Airs and they told me they plan to ship them the first week of November (2nd-8th) and that it would be much easier to pre-order the laptop now then to order it when they are released (which is only about two weeks away). According to Apple they are taking orders for them now and will ship them the first week of November. Would it be possible for you to simply order it now and not have to worry about acquiring them at a later date?

I have also come up with another proposition; would it be easier for you to send an Apple gift-card for the value of the laptop ($2500) so that you don't have to worry about anything regarding acquiring them and I'll take care of everything (ordering, payment, shipment, ect). Please let me know if either of these solutions would be a viable way of solving this inconvenience Apple has bestowed upon us.

Thanks,

[idb579b422c]Dear Customer Support,

I understand your process of acquiring your gifts and appreciate you looking into this for me. I have come to a decision and would like to choose option 4. Please let me know how we can proceed further so that I may be able to expedite the form you require to you.

Thanks,

edgespeeder04

23-10-2008 11:04:08

yeah i agree, i hope someone else is waiting on a gift sooner than that. i really want to see someone get a gift before i do the vespa scooter which by the way can sell for more than that here in NJ near NYC since people will do anything to save gas and get around easier. P but i'd prefer a check, less time.


I believe someone said something about a gift card being issued but that hasn't been confirmed as to whether it might be a visa u can use anywhere.

No, they cannot. Telling you what offers to do would be a violation of virtually every site's terms & conditions, i.e. fraud.

She's not going to get retail for it, especially with the new models that were just released. I would tell them you want the silver Mac Book plus a gift card for the difference, since the value of the black one is $2,500 according to their website.

You will not get any giftcards or checks from them, trust me, I've tried. Tell them you want to wait until the new MacBook Airs are released to get one (whether it be black or silver). Of course you can always get the current gen notebook from them but next week it will be obsolete when Apple starts shipping the new ones.

Also, Black Macbook Airs (and everything else) are at colorwarepc.com

theysayjump

Anyone know if they will only honour requests to substitute a Macbook Air for a Macbook Air, or, if in lieu of a Black Macbook Air it could be subbed for a Macbook Pro (they're cheaper and better)?

That'd be pretty sweet.

Thanks for the updates benny.

I've already asked for you guys and I already posted it a while back. I asked if they could substitute my gift for anything else, whether it be a check or gift card and they said no. However they were lenient on the fact that I could get a silver MacBook Air and not a black one. Only reason being that the black ones were not readily available.

The specs of the MacBook Pro are definitely better than the MacBook Air. It's faster, bigger hard drive, faster graphics card, etc... but the MacBook Air is much thinner/lighter/smaller and meant more for people on the go who need a smaller, lightweight notebook and aren't exactly worried about performing resource heavy tasks that would be better suited for a MacBook Pro.

The thought of them raising requirements, extreme shipping delays or mass DQ'ing/scamming people when waaaaaay too many start redeeming gifts convinced me to get it over with... hell, it's $75, give or take, for 12 offers.

Prove me otherwise. We don't have 100% truth that this site is legit, and that's a fact. In no way did I say it's a scam, because again, we don't have anything to back up any claims.

It's faster, bigger hard drive, faster graphics card, etc... but the MacBook Air is much thinner/lighter/smaller and meant more for people on the go who need a smaller, lightweight notebook and aren't exactly worried about performing resource heavy tasks that would be better suited for a MacBook Pro.

... and no one has gotten anything from TheRewardDepot except Bob's cousin's best friend's hair dresser's uncle... but I too gave in and have began the site with little (no?) proof of their legitimacy. I've always told myself I would never be one of THOSE people... but I just couldn't let this one slide. The thought of them raising requirements, extreme shipping delays or mass DQ'ing/scamming people when waaaaaay too many start redeeming gifts convinced me to get it over with... hell, it's $75, give or take, for 12 offers.[/quotedadd40450b]

Here's the update of my account again.


Dear May,

I sent you an email on 10/30 (in response to your email. I was asking if the Silver MacBook Air is acceptable.

Here are the options with regard to your gift

1. We currently have the older model MacBook Air in our inventory (the ones that Apple was selling up until a couple weeks ago when they announced the new model. This model is worth $1799. We can send this to you along with a $700 gift card and you can use the $700 to have it customized in black (Apple does not sell Black MacBook Airs). We could ship this out within the next 2 weeks.

2. If you would like the new model $2499 MacBook Air (in Silver), it can be a several month wait as we do not currently have any in inventory. If you choose this option, I will need to send you a waiver to sign, acknowledging that you are accepting a substitution and it could take several months to receive the gift.

Please let us know how you would like to proceed.

Sincerely,

Customer Support



I don't understand this company. I sent them an email twice regarding my decision that i will take the Macbook Air Silver worth $2499 last October 30 and 31. And today they sent me an email again asking about my decision. I'm not sure how many customer service checked emails. Or if they fire some old customer service and they have a new ones. Because they keep repeatings themselves. Or are they going to send my gift or not? I personally contacted Apple today and he said that Macbook Air Silver $2499 is available. And they have that $1799 Macbook Air Silver but it is a refurbished. I wonder if reward depot is going to send me the refurbished one.

Everyone is scaling back their $ amount per offer, but this company comes around and is offering a $3300 scooter for 12 offers? They will willingly give you a $2500 gc to make sure your accurately compensated for the laptop? Perhaps they need to get their name out and that is why ... but something doesnt seem right to me. Good luck, all.

They're not new they have been around for a while people just never talked about them because they used to have OOD's on the last page and it used to be like 8 offers for 500, They have been getting paid by Valueclick for the last couple of years and they haven't had to ship out any gifts. My guess is that they need some proof pics and testimonials to reel in more sign-ups and more profit.

jasonatsmtc

13-11-2008 06:54:13

with a 2500 apple card you could buy 5 $500 cards then sell them on ebay for $550 each using the Live.com cash back system

JANGALANG32

can you explain more? with $2500 in apple cards i can buy 5 $500 apple cards or visa cards? then i can sell them on ebay for more then they are worth? how?

box86rowh

13-11-2008 07:40:17

They offer a 10% discount to buyers using the Live.com cash back system. So you list your card for $550 buy it now and mention the way to save 10% in the auction. Anyone who buys your card only pays $495. So it is a win win. Just offer free shipping...

They're actually offering 25% to buyers right now

wiebelhaus03

but no one will buy it at $550, because there are still people that offer it for under $500....

Im not seeing that ... only for the page 1, page 2 setups ... are as I wrote before, there is still avela and colopure and apparently you can do both despite being from the same company ... the gold/platinum setups are the same as they have always been. The exception is the 500 gc ... they are now basically ood .. as I only see colopure. The apple is still the same .. I didnt look at the vespa, but I assume its the same as well.

i know because i passed the 45 day mark about 20 days ago..im in the manuel credit process now..once 45 days hit i emailed them to let them know offers havent credited and they said its now 60 days. also, only 1 out of 8 has credited for me...if this was brandarama where manuel credit is impossible this site would be a scam because i dont think many people have got many of their offers to credit

Many people have said that manual credit went very smoothly for them.

mookieb2

17-11-2008 08:28:39

Im curious about replacements. If the offers are taking 60 days to credit, theres no wiggle room if you get denied the manuel credit.

Do we know that its a hard 120 days to complete? And if we need to do a replacement, is it another 60 days for crediting? That seems like its a one shot and thats it kind of thing.

This seems to be the only potential hicc-up I can find with these guys now that we know they are shipping.

I don't think anyone knows how strict they really are with the time limits... kinda like how brandarama holds you to like what.. 180 days to do your offers once you start or something? But they don't actually care.

Obviously don't bank of them allowing you to continue if the time frame expires but no one knows how they will handle yet if someone hits the time limit

JANGALANG32

17-11-2008 09:23:42

i actualy emailed them on that..i did 2 offers right when i signed up and then did 6 offers about 30 days after i signed up. after waiting 60 days for the 6 offers will put me at 90 days so i asked them if i could send in my offer conformation emails now and they said wait 60 days and if you go over the 120 day limit we will deal with the problem at that time. dont know what that means but sounds like they might work with me..

We typically ship the actual gift which you signed up for, however once all program participation requirements are completed we can discuss alternate fulfillment options.


I like being able to discuss other fulfillment options after )

now which to do, 12 offer $3300 Vespa or 8 offer $2500 Pink Macbook?

When do you suggest I email them to inquire when they're going to credit my account? It's been 30 days today. Thanks!

You're not going to get credit for another 30 days. I did my offers 10/9 for the MacBook Air and haven't received credit either.

ploppsdman

17-11-2008 13:04:49

Now that the $500 option is unavailable to me, Im wondering if anyone can settle something in my head given the ridiculous offer to $ ratio here, given what is available now from every other network, how is it not possible if not probable that this is a scam to get peoples ss #'s? If I lose 70 bucks in offers and get nothing, no worries, but they have shut the door on all $500 offers ... makes me nervous. Even if they pay you, it may be worth it to them to get your social security number .. .. that's my concern b/c they are offering SO much and seem to be real easy to deal with .. and no contact number.

orangejuice

17-11-2008 13:24:10

Um, people have been receiving laptops, so at this point i dont think its a scam, but i can bet they are gonna be DQing people.

So basically any offers that you completed that have NOT YET been approved are transfered to the 60 day waiting cycle? What a joke. My buddy just did all of his offers last night, and he signed up over 30 days ago. 60 + 30 is 90 days. So basically if offers dont credit you are screwed.

Then I went to check my email and I was plesently surprised to see this waiting in my inbox

[i563c67bb1e]Dear Ben,

Your gift will be shipping out tomorrow (11/18/08 ). Your FedEx tracking number is 0000000000000000. A direct signature is required due to the value of this item.

We would like to include you in our "Satisfied Customer Wall" on our website. We would greatly appreciate it if you would be willing to take a photograph of yourself with your gift and send it to us along with a brief note about your experience with us. You may mail it to the address below, or simply send as an attachment to email==support@therewarddepot.comsupport@therewarddepot.com=support@therewarddepot.comsupport@therewarddepot.com/email (sending us your photo constitutes we have your permission to post this information on our websites).

Once again, congratulations, Ben. We hope that you enjoy your new MacBook Pro!

Sincerely,


Customer Support[/i563c67bb1e]

After 128 days from the start of this program, I'll soon be receiving my gift.

BTW, i've been reading recent posts and it seems some people are a bit confused regarding waiting times for offers to be credited. Your offers will [b563c67bb1e]NOT[/b563c67bb1e] credit in 30 days, not even 45. It has always, and most likely will always, be 60 days from when you do your offers to the time you are credited. Whoever came up with any other number is sadly misinformed. Both my friend and I offers credited after 60 days. Good luck to those who have just started or are still waiting and ill post back with some glorious pictures of my new loot. (Several big, clear, 8MP pics at that)

doylnea

When you print a label, until it's picked up, the label is shown as invalid. If they printed 30 labels yesterday, and emailed you the number before it was picked up, that's why it was marked as invalid.

update im trying to get credit for 1 of my offers and they said this

"The sponsor is still working to confirm your participation in this offer.

If you are concerned that your account may expire before this time - do not worry; if we verify that all requirements were completed prior to the specified timeframe, we will reinstate your account if it expires. When we reinstate your account, we will extend it for the number of days of the delay in getting confirmation from the sponsor (at this point, it would be an extra 7 days)."

looks to be good! from what they said i guess you could do offers all the way up to the 119th day and you account will still be good. good to know in case i have to do a replacement offer

Also, if you haven't waited 60 days like the rest of us and your emailing them early so they can process your manuel credit in the future I have one thing to say to you, your only hurting it for everyone else.

You really think that by emailing them one email is going to change the outcome for everyone? Interesting, you must really buy in to the Butterfly Effect.
Also, it has been well over 30 days since I completed my offers (yes, not 60, but none the less) and I think it's okay to ask a company that you just invested YOUR money into the status of credits for your account. Don't get bent out of shape about it, saying that people are emailing them after 5 days of signing up may be a bit of an understatement there bud.

...Okay, now everyone take two deep breaths and chilllll ooooouuuuttt, it's not the end of the world.

No one knows yet

Edit And skott, no one is freaking out, it's just we know when offers credit and if you haven't waited the alloted time that everyone has experienced... why contact them??

Why contact them? Sometimes is nice to find out for yourself rather than word of mouth dude. You never know who could be working for the site, which has happened. Do you believe everything you read?

[quote9df8042433="skott79"]You really think that by emailing them one email is going to change the outcome for everyone? Interesting, you must really buy in to the Butterfly Effect.
Also, it has been well over 30 days since I completed my offers (yes, not 60, but none the less) and I think it's okay to ask a company that you just invested YOUR money into the status of credits for your account. Don't get bent out of shape about it, saying that people are emailing them after 5 days of signing up may be a bit of an understatement there bud.

...Okay, now everyone take two deep breaths and chilllll ooooouuuuttt, it's not the end of the world.[/quote9df8042433]

lol so it's ok for you to get the last word in, which makes everyone who disagrees with you look like the bad guy?

What I was saying, maybe others too, was that this information got posted, multiple times. No need for people to keep emailing them. And I guess you must not get out much, because you have the "customer is always right" mentality

If I'm all about the butterfly effect, then you must be one paranoid guy with trust issues.

Dude, I will paypal you your precious $80 you paid for your offers if the company writes you and says

Companies have changed their policies based on their experiences with CS before. If they get bombarded by the same questions or questions that are irrelevant to said user, then they may just stop answering CS e-mails altogether as it'll be too much work to go through everything just to answer the people with real concerns or problems.

There's no reason to e-mail them asking them about gifts and what you're going to get, or manual credits, if you're not even eligible, it's just pointless. What if you don't qualify?

Just chill, wait your time and then ask questions at the appropriate time.

That being said, I'm at 44 days since I did my offers so I'm off to ask them if they have my tracking number.

I have spent the last hour and a half reading every single post in this thread.

Some questions...

I see that the pink laptop is now $2500 - 12 offers.
I'm thinking about doing that one. (Wish I got in when it was 8)
There is no final word on the Vespa, right?

Like an idiot I wasted pretty much all offers I could do on Brandarama last night before finding this thread.

If I sign up now, I have 120 days to finish all my offers.
I see a lot of you completing all your offers in one sitting.
Is there any benefit to this?

And I should receive credit about 60 days after completing the offers?
And if they all don't credit and I need to do replacements, won't I be screwed if I have to wait another 60 days?

Lastly, if my order goes through on the individual offer site, should I assume that I'm good to go for crediting? (I ask this because sometimes on Brandarama you can get away with getting credit if you completed the same offer several months ago.)

If anyone could take the time to answer any of my questions it would be much appreciated. Again, I read this whole topic and I feel unclear on these things. Thanks!

EDIT Is the best 8 offer one still the original $1900 on the first page?

I fear that I might not be able to complete 12 offers in 120 days because right now there are very few I can do and if they don't update offers frequently then I'd be screwed. (Do you think they'd give me enough offers in 120 days to complete a 12 offer deal?) I want to wait until new offers go up but at the same time I want to get my foot in the door while I still can.

I'm new to this site but not DIY. I'm over $14,000+ by Brandarama so I know how these things work. I'm just looking for some specifics on this one. Thanks!

As for the timeline, I emailed them about changing my address if they are shipping it after the 15 (I'm at school now and will be going home for 4 weeks starting the 15th). They told me that if I didnt send the forms out today that they will most likely be sending out the card after the 15th.

Maybe that gives you a shortened time line. I would say around 3-4 weeks.

Sorry guys but I just don't live on the forums. To answer your questions here we go Turn around from when they get the form was next day for me. Make sure you send in a W9 because that messed me up. They do not accept faxed W9's (trust me I asked). I have no experience with manuel credit but one of my offers credited to the wrong page and a quick email fixed that problem in a jiffy. TheRewardDepot is a great company and if you ask (after you've waited your appropriate time) they're more than happy to work with you on whatever issues you might have.

Thanks for all the updates guys and congratz and thanks to whoever found these guys.

This company rocks! They are pretty good with manual credit request. My friend signed up and she is up to 120 days now. They give her manual credit for Silkies even though she doesn't have an email confirmation.
I think they are the best freebie site right now.

I think it's the sites that have either changed or have been taken down.

I just realized that the link for the black mac offer has changed and that's the one I signed up for. It says I completed and can fill out my redemption form. But I haven't done anything, also there is no picture.

Yeah, my account's jack'd too. It says that I've completed the requirements (about a month ahead of schedule) but doesn't actually tell me which offers I have received credit for (I completed an extra offer on each page). I got so damn excited too.

Trying to claim gifts without completing the requirements is a huge dick move and as an Admin I'd be tempted to ban anyone who did send them in without completing the requirements.

As for the sites being jacked, my offers credited a couple of days ago and I sent in my forms yesterday, but my account is the same as you guys to an extent. It doesn't say Black Macbook Air on the main page, but you can click on Complete Offer, and it then shows the offers I completed.

her are my thought as i was doing the site with a friend and i am still working with one of the guinea pig accounts that signed up in july.


Offer take 45-75 days to credit
YOu should not be printing certificates if you do not have offers showing.

All sites are showing redemption forms regardless of offer completion.
I belive that all pictures are not showing any gifts as well.


I would bet money that most peoples acounts say

"You have completed as required by this offer."

with nothing below but should say the same thing with your offers showing and page number.

I would advise people to just wait for the system to be fixed and not scam this company.

It has been a while but they emailed me with my manual credit recently so alll my offers are showing.

good luck to all and dont try to scam them please.

No. Let's not calm down.

By sending in a redemption form for a gift that you did not fairly earn slows things down for the rest of us. They have to go through all those bogus accounts and probably double check everything to make sure that there is not an error with other parts of those accounts. So DON'T send in those forms for the parked accounts. It could make things worse for all of us and possibly piss off this new and great company.

Exactly, but not only that, but with a bunch of greedy bastards sending in forms without completing the requirements it'll only make their jobs more tedious and there might be more of a chance of someone slipping through the cracks who didn't complete the site, but get their gift anyway.

I think I have every right to be pissed at people even contemplating doing this because I completed the site legitimately, months ago, and if I get screwed out of a gift (because nobody knows if they'll bail, or if they'll only send out a few, or if they'll just get pissed at everyone harassing them and not send anyone anything) after being approved and sending in my forms, I'll be a very upset young man.

I don't know if you guys read my earlier post in this thread, but I think this glitch thing happened a couple of years ago when I was signing up for all kinds of freebie sites , and when I checked my page on this one I had a big list of gifts and a link to print out my redemption form for one of them. I didn't remember finishing any offers for it, since this company used to have impossible oods on the last page, but I dropped it in the mail anyways on the off chance that it was for a gift I actually qualified for. Naturally, nothing happened. Anyhoo, fyi.

Well mine says the same thing (Im only 5/8 ) But if you notice the redemption form(in my case) does not show the gift that I supposedly qualified for. So, that being said, it would be pretty stupid to send in a form that doesnt even say what you completed and hope to get anything from it.......

frost0g

07-12-2008 18:04:16

did anyone notice what went down a few days before the 'glitch'? if you logged in through therewarddepot.com and checked your status, it said the usual something along the lines of '... 0 of Page 2 offers, 2 of Page 3 offers..' whatever.

but. if you went to yourlaptopsavings.com and looked at the bottom, they had updated their tc so that it was no longer 8 offers (2 on each of the 4 pages). it was 2 silver, 2 gold, and like 6 or 8 platinum. and from the main page you could access each of these three silver/gold/platinum pages, and could no longer access the old 4 offer pages.

now there are no links. you cannot access the gold/silver/platinum pages.
you also cannot access the other old 4 page offer format due to the fact that they have fast tracked everyones accounts to winning nothing.
(these two facts lead me to believe that their glitch was an easy, global fix to keep people from visiting the offer pages while they re-vamp)

my question here is, when this glitch is fixed (assuming it is), will people that signed up before the glitch/change of tc be bound to still doing 8 offers (with the crappy page 4) or will they be allowed to change to the new system (it ended up being two more offers, BUT the offer pages are/were MUCH more populated making it easier)? i dont think that is what they mean by account transferability?

anywho, this recent change in tc and offer numbers before the glitch (a few days) personally makes me think they are just doing some changes around the house. but thats just me )

ILoveToys

07-12-2008 19:13:30

They've been changing their sites from Page 1 to Page 4 to the Gold, Silver, and Platinum Pages. It's probably a result of the change and people being on the old having glitches in their status...I'm sure it's nothing to lose sleep over.

people sure do freak out quickly before knowing anything.

my observations, i havent talked to customer service this is just my assumption. the reason for the glitch was because on my account after i logged in the page said black macbook air. i click that and then it went to the offers i have completed and it said i was still signing up for the black mac book air.

i click on the offers page and on page 1 of the offers it would say i was signing up for a sony vaio. i contacted customer support about this early last week just to make sure i was getting a black mack book air and they said they were not aware this was happening. i now login and it says black mac book air on the offers page. im guessing thats what they were fixing and the reason everyones site was screwed up.

I think they just let you know when your item is being shipped. I know someone posted the email they received a few pages back. Also, they might update your status page to where it says "Complete Offer" it will say 'Offer completed" I think I read that somewhere also.

That was posted a few pages back.....

Im glad I checked FIPG today. I was literary in the post office this morning getting ready to ship my redemption forms thinking that all my offers had been approved, but something told me to retreat and check FIPG. lol I just figured the redemption form was like Ideals where the image was always broken. I guess thats what happens when I stay away from here for days.

My account is fixed and just waiting for offers to approve.

So, I'm kind of wanting to return my macbook to Amazon for a credit. I emailed customer support and asked for an order number and they said they order in bulk so it would be hard to get it for me. I wrote back and just asked for their phone number and email that they use and haven't heard back. Anyway, just wondering if anyone who has received their gift had an amazon packing slip enclosed or if anyone's original shipping label was in tact. I pulled a taped piece of notebook paper off and revealed the UPS packing slip but they had tried to rip it off before taping that paper for it so I can't even see the tracking number or anything. All I can see is the city it was shipped to and that is Lexington KY

i think so.. on the offer page it says just activate it, but i remember somewhere in the terms it said either do a balance transfer or make a purchase.. id read the terms again i suppose

and the credit card only helps if you have good credit haha cry

It's not that hard to read the last few pages of this thread. Most people do and those who do not do it are just lazy. Are you in that much of a hurry that you can't read.

You guys all know that most people didn't get credit for their offers until about last week meaning that most of the manual credit questions are going to be only a few pages back.

God forbid it takes you more than 10 seconds to find the answer.

How long does it normally take them to send the email with your password after you click the lost password link? When I signed up for the black macbook I got it within minutes. I'm still waiting on that password email for the pink mac site. Should I email them directly or just wait for the lost password email?

They are not being so lenient on manual credits anymore. My mom did not get email confirmations for everything and they said she needed to have them. If she does more offers now, its gonna push over the 120 days if they take their time with crediting the account. I have to wonder if they will screw us all now if we need to do extra offers.

the terms say you have to have your offers completed in the first 120 days. So if your offers were done on day 119 you would just be waiting for credits the next 75, you wouldnt need an extension.

All program participation requirements must be completed within 120 days. Your account will expire if all requirements are not completed within this timeframe.

So, does your account update at all after they receive your forms or not?

SkatingCrippled

15-12-2008 14:56:05

I'm really hoping this manual credit goes through soon. The support is making it sound like it's my only option. I mean, the offers credited after 60 days, and there's an additional 75 day wait for replacement offers. That would put me well over the 120 day mark-- and it sounds like your account expires on the 120th day.

ghounds07

15-12-2008 16:29:36

If there is an additional 75 day wait for replacement offers wouldn't they be useless since it would put you at 135 days if you did it perfectly?

I thought some people had replacements credit faster than that?

Then there was a link you click to get your redemption form and you print it out and send it in with a W-9, all of which I've done. I'm just waiting for a tracking number from Customer Support showing that it's been shipped. Probably sometime around mid-January I would assume. I wrote them after I sent everything in making sure I did everything I needed to do. Here is the last email I got from them in response

Anyone else having trouble with manual credits?

They are draging their feet with mine and I 'm afraid of getting locked out on the replacement offer crediting because of the time. (I went ahead and did a replacement to try and cover my bases that way, but am afraid it will not credit in time)

Have asked them what to do, but have just been told that they will notify me when they recieve word on crediting. They have been great with everyone else, and I've been nothing but polite. Just wondering if anyone else is stuck in this cycle of bad.

[quote9f457291f5="steveyankee"][quote9f457291f5="AdrienD1892"]Wait.. so... you did an offer that was "worth" $2400 and now they're sending you $3300 instead? O.o

Does that seem strange to anyone else? I mean, I guess don't look a gift horse in the mouth but that still seems rather... odd.[/quote9f457291f5]

I didn't do the $2500 site

Why would I? For $800 more, all you need to do is 4 more offers

With how rare DIY sites are these days, that's a damn good deal.[/quote9f457291f5]

I realized after I sent this you were talking about the other one, sorry wink . Too many offers by this company, confusing.

Anyway, Yes I agree. I would have also done the 3300 site but did not see it before I finished the 2400 site. Ah well. Such is life. wink

Also, I saw that some people were upset about the Visa card. What is the difference? Everywhere you go takes Visa...

well a check is instant money but gift cards require a little more work, a minor detail better than taking a hit trying to resell something.

Do you guys think this will be a new thing with them? Giving checks or gift cards instead of the laptop, cuz I actually wanted it. I probably won't get my gift until february or early March anyway. Maybe they'll go back to giving the laptop.

This is exactly why I decided to do the 12 offer pink mac. More options in case I need to do another offer on a page. Actually it was suggested to me that I do an extra offer on each page just in case. I have received all of my confirm emails except one. But when I inquired about when something I ordered will ship, they said I'd get a confirm email with my acct number and everything. So I'm pretty much covered. Also who knows it might credit and I won't even have to worry about it.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Okay so I did all my eight offers in November, right? One of the offers never sent any sort of confirmation email so I naturally call them up, they give me confirmation and everything. Less than two weeks ago I get a letter from them saying that they couldn't charge my card for some reason, so I'd have to call them up and pay via phone. Unfortunately, payments must be conducted over the site when first clicked to count for credit. Now, I did another replacement offer that failed to send me a confirmation email so I decide to do another offer just a few days ago.

Having realized this, I should have just done a replacement when the email didn't come because now I'll probably have to wait two months from a few days ago in order to get all eight of my offers completed! (

kwoodyk34k

21-12-2008 21:52:39

Alright, about to start on the Vespa.
So let's see if I have it all down.

1. Do my 12 offers.
2. Wait 45 days and see which credit.
3. Once I find that out submit manual credit AND do replacement offers. (to be safe)

Does my plan sound alright?
Anything else I should watch out for?
I read this whole thread about a month ago.
Any new developments?

Also, what would you say the manual credit % is if you have a confirmation e-mail?

Zags1199

21-12-2008 22:57:52

You have to wait 75 days for offers to credit.

kwoodyk34k

21-12-2008 23:19:01

oh wow.. okay thanks for that info.

alright, i signed up.
and just to be sure. it's okay that I don't know my password right?
just keep entering my e-mail address for the offers and i'll be fine?
what does the status page show exactly during that first 75 days?

again, anyone have an estimate of the manual credit %?

thanks! can't wait til i can start waiting, lol.

I did Silkies a couple of months ago for Brandarama. I recall being charged in a few days and receiving a confirmation e-mail. That was back then though.

Has anybody received a charge for $29.95 from fit-fac.com? YLS is the only site I have done recently and I don't know what this charge is from.

ploppsdman

24-12-2008 22:48:43

I did a search, apparently its for an acai berry offer.

http//www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/fit-faccom-c123465.html

Also, some people got charges of much more the following week, so I'd remedy this real fast. The person above called the acai offer, i believe.

The fit-factory has a website and a specific link for unauthorized charges ..

http//fit-fac.com/billingInquiry.cfm

What offer was this? I never want any part of this; this is an institutional setup to take peoples money.

hum1m9e8r8b

25-12-2008 16:27:10

Yeah, I didn't do acai berry though, which is why I posted here. I'm guessing it's the same company I just signed up for a different product. I am just straight up disputing it through my credit card company as it should be an easy reversal.

Did you try using 'password'? I just signed up 3 offers for iPhone using the same email I registered 2 months ago (Different offer/link) and the password (is password-all lowercase) works for me.

Make sure though when you get in using the password as pwd; change it right away.

Quick Question!

Is there any rule against doing multiple offers for the same company?

For example, if I do Acai Berry Select (weight loss) can I still do Bowtrol (colon cleanse) and get credit for them both even though they are from the same company with the same website layout?

The same goes for Vioderm (anti-wrinkle) and Raw Minerals (make up)

Does that hurt my chances of crediting at all or should I be fine? I couldn't find anything about it in the terms but I like to play things safe. If you know please respond ASAP.

Thanks ]

I've received 10 confirmation e-mails. I'm waiting on Bowtrol and Grant Every Day.

Let's see. I should probably do some extra offers just in case, shouldn't I?

Right now everything that I haven't done between this site and Brandarama is pretty expensive.

Should I wait a couple of weeks and see if better offers pop up?
I'm just worried about having an offer not credit and not being able to get manual credit for whatever reason within the remaining time frame before 120 days is up.

If you get the Vespa retailed at $3,300 you're going to be paying a shit load of taxes on that out of pocket.

true [ probably about $400, no? i don't think an actual Vespa would even be worth $400 to me. In fact, I know it wouldn't. Come onnnn gift card!

Correct. You'll get a W-4 from the company come tax time. Basically, they just report the money you earned from them to the IRS who adds that to your taxable income.

Working on the Vespa site currently...

Wanted to find out exactly which model they would send out. When I look at the Vespa site, the LX 150 is the only which reaches 59MPH Highway stated on the offers front page, as the LX 50 only reaches 39MPH.......

BUT! At the $3300 value, that would only cover the LX50 ringing in at $3299.... Right?

dmorris68

05-01-2009 10:53:04

You're going to be taxed the same whether you get a gift card for $X or an actual Vespa for the same $X. In fact if there was any difference, you're probably better off from a tax situation getting the Vespa, since you could conceivably claim a lower fair market value than what they 1099 you for, provided you document the lower value at the time you receive the gift. That's always tricky though, as they don't make it obvious or simple to claim the lower amount when you file. But if you use an accountant or tax prep service, it's their headache.

But regardless, if you get a gift card or check for $3000, you will most definitely be taxed on $3000.

But as mentioned above, the standard disclaimers apply don't get your tax advice from here. NOBODY here can tell you with any degree of certainty what your personal tax liability will be, without being privy to all of your information and knowing all the tax rules themselves. Same as with any legal advice, always consult a professional!

I needed to change my address again cause I am not back at school. I changed it to my home address because I thought they would send it out while I was at home for Christmas break.

I emailed them on Friday asking if they could AGAIN change my address and they responded today saying that they would change the address for me and typed the new address just for confirmation! They then stated that they would email me once the gift is shipped out.

I've been signing in through the $500 Visa link this whole time to get to my Vespa gift. I just wanted to make sure the 8 offers for page 3 for the Vespa were never OOD or super hard to do. This is correct right?

For example..
Easy Grant Source, NiteTrim, Ivory White, Boca Java, Pimsleur, Raw Minerals, FreeCreditReport.com, Acai Berry Select, GoFreeCredit, Gamefly, Vioderm.

These all look about right for a page 3 for the Vespa, correct? (I know they're not all still there)

I just got a funny feeling because it was so easy compared to other ones of lesser value with OODs on the last page. Also because sometimes it would say I was completing offers for a $500 Visa until I cleared my cookies. I'm just hoping somehow I wasn't completing offers for a $500 visa, lol.

Thanks in advance.

Alright guys. The only time I think that emailing is an issue is when you keep emailing them about the shipping of your gift.

If you have specific account questions, I feel like it is okay to do so. That is what the email support is there for.

I-Deal refused to respond to emails at certain times because of forum users constantly bugging them about shipping times.

They used to have another trial where you can keep the CD's and it was something insanely inexpensive. Like $20 for 6 CD's. I got a Japanese collection that way.

I think they're trying to be good but may have gotten in over their heads. Right now I'm only out about $56 so it's not going to hurt me any if they flame out, but changing the terms after you're done with the offers is worse than even NiuTech, who at least honored their old TOS if you had finished the offers before the new one went into effect.

These folks are causing a lot of unnecessary angst and are pissing away a lot of goodwill. I hope they can keep it together. The problem is that they keep increasing the wait time but they haven't budged that 120 day completion deadline.

I came out of DIY retirement for this one, and it looks like I'm going to get burned for the first time (waited too long to start offers, now too close to the 120 day deadline for crediting). Unless they extend the allotted time for completion or honor the old terms for crediting this company is fail. Yeah, it's not much money lost, but if they can get away with bush league moves like this then I think this will be the death of DIY as other companies spring up and follow suit. Based on their limited liability disclaimers, I don't think they worry much about breaching the initial contract...

Actually, last I looked at the ToS, it was that your account expired after 2 years of zero offer completions, and all offers must be completed within the first 120 days. So that basically gives you time for one round of replacements and 1.5 years to sort out manual credits.

The way I read it is that they close your account across their entire network if you don't complete an offer in a 2 year span, but for an individual site they strictly adhere to the 120 day requirement. That is, all offers must be completed and credited and your forms must be in within 120 days, PERIOD. Granted I haven't received a response yet to my query regarding crediting since the terms have changed (and I am going to request that they extend my account 30 days to make up for the changing of the terms since I completed my offers), but I don't see why they would make any allowances at this point. I'm hoping they can be reasonable, but now that I've made them their money I'm not going to hold my breath.

The fact that they "respond to e-mails" is not enough to give me and probably others a warm and fuzzy. Their policies become increasingly hostile towards their user base with each passing month. And the content of said e-mails hasn't exactly been confidence inspiring for all of us, especially when they say it doesn't matter what their terms were when you signed up, you are going to be bound to whatever they've changed their terms to this month. I appreciate optimism but until I see evidence that TRD still has some integrity left, I am going to believe that yours is bordering on naivety. Actions will speak much louder than words in their defense.

tylerc

17-01-2009 06:36:39

You don't think i-Deal has made it more hostile for users? They banned conga lines, set a $1000 limit per DBA every 6 months, and their CS is hit or miss at best. However, they STILL ship out gifts. Just wait a little while longer and see how everything goes. You can call me naive all you want, but I've done enough sites and have been doing this for long enough to give some sites the benefit of the doubt.

Guys it appears for whatever reason, believe it or not, that they receive credit confirmations about once every 60 days. Well, my guess is that if you complete offers somewhere in the middle of that time (let's say at day 30) you might not be in day 60's credit, but you'll have to wait until day 120 (or 90 days since you signed up).

My guess is they're not really changing anything, but adjusting their terms to get some relief from the pointless emails asking about credit. They have a system they are working within. My impression is that they only receive credit confirmations in large batches on a 60 day schedule. It's probably not their fault, but whoever they are getting their offers from.

You all really need to relax, because bitching about it on a forum is going to do you no good. Please continue to post info that is meaningful to everyone (the purpose of a forum like this), but if all you want to do is complain about a change in terms then find another place and quit bumping this thread for no reason.

You might be better off buying a macbook pro and selling it.

orangejuice

19-01-2009 17:32:44

i thought of that too, but apparently those are only going for $1800 on ebay. isnt there a trick to use to get cash out of the card at an apple store? like by paying for $2200 worth of stuff with the apple card then $300 in debit card or cash, and then they give you a check back?

Eeyore

19-01-2009 18:25:26

If it's the $2500 card you could get the high-end Air. Those retail for $2499 and are selling around $2300 unopened. Problem with this theory is sales tax and you don't want to be out of pocket.

The other approach is to figure out a purchase around $2300 (a Macbook Pro and an iPod, perhaps?) and then sell those as a package deal. The gift card should also cover the tax that way.

Sucks that they are forcing the Apple card on you but I suppose it's better than a kick to the head...

orangejuice

19-01-2009 18:35:47

hmm, i just saw one go for 1900. the MB940LLA...when did you see this?

freeipodplayer

19-01-2009 18:54:54

split the gift card into 500 dollar denominations, and sell individually. 500 should go for 475 buy it now on ebay real quick. only downside is the fees... which would amount to 30 bucks. So ... for every 500, you would lose 55 bucks. and DO NOT email the gift card # and pin.

You will get scammed like that.

Speaking of taxes, halfway through the year I decided to revise my W4 claiming no allowances and even getting them to withhold extra money every week so I'd be paying a ton in taxes as to compensate for the freebie sites I'd complete during the year. The great thing is, Brandarama hasn't shipped shit and I didn't complete nearly as many sites as I expected, so I don't have to file anything other than wages from my job. So, I'll be getting one badass refund this year 8-)

[ib1387a5742]Dear Charles,



For offers completed on or after November 1, 2008 - it will take up to 105 days for those offers to credit. Unfortunately we are unable to expedite this process.



Our intention with the extended wait time is not to penalize users that have already completed offers. We are willing to offer account extensions to make up for the extended wait time, however this would only apply to users that completed all of their offers before the terms were updated with the 105 day wait time - specifically to those who completed all of their offers 75 days before their account is set to expire AND completed their offers prior to January 9, 2009.



If both of these apply to you, please let us know so that we may extend your account for an additional 30 days, to make up for the extended wait time. [/ib1387a5742]

[quote7117c71699="mistertomlinson"]Speaking of taxes, halfway through the year I decided to revise my W4 claiming no allowances and even getting them to withhold extra money every week so I'd be paying a ton in taxes as to compensate for the freebie sites I'd complete during the year. The great thing is, Brandarama hasn't shipped shit and I didn't complete nearly as many sites as I expected, so I don't have to file anything other than wages from my job. So, I'll be getting one badass refund this year 8-)[/quote7117c71699]

Was this another MBP site? I did one through laptopreviewpanel.com that lists the value as $2499, even on the gift status image. I was hoping for at least the mid level MBP, but more for the gift card so I could pony up the dough for an upgrade to the new 17 inch model.

Yes, most incentivized CC offers require you to be approved and make a purchase to receive/keep credit for the offer.

The reason they're considered OOD by most (unless they're in the market for a CC anyway, but then again that would make any OOD a non-OOD) is due to at least a few reasons

1. The time usually involved to get approved, receive the card, make a purchase, and THEN have the offer credit reported.

2. It CAN impact your credit score if you apply for several within a short time frame (a couple of years) and especially if you are already in debt.

3. New credit is better than NO credit, but is less favorable than old, established credit. Some people will close an old CC to get a new one, transferring the balance, but that's a big mistake from a credit scoring aspect -- your score will drop even further because of the loss of an aged account, the gain of a new one with an immediate big balance (from the transfer), plus the inquiry from the application.

4. Not everyone will be approved, which could cause some wasted time and possibly failure to complete those sites with deadlines.

5. Many don't have the discipline to use credit wisely, and if they have it in hand, will abuse it. In the worst cases, they could become the ultimate OOD.

6. The incentivized offers are seldom the ones with the best terms, as is the case with most widely marketed CC offers. The best terms & offers come from "private" invitation by credit card issuers once you've established good credit.

If you just do one or so, and needed a CC anyway, then they can be a useful offer. However I always avoid CC offers because I have more CC's than a I need already, they have better terms than most any I've seen on a freebie site, and I have no desire to add any more bulk to my wallet.

Yeah, thanks for the informative comment dmorris. I'd like to think that I'm smart when it comes to CC offers, so for me none of these were big issues. Especially with the one about crediting hopefully after 105 days it credits correctly hah. And yeah this is the 1st or 2nd I have done for freebie sites, usually I just find other CC's that pay like $250+ when you sign up for them. I'm just in college so have like 6 CC's right now but I got paid for 5 of them, totalling about $1,500.

None of the apple stores will exchange the card for (5) $500 demoniations, and ebay has a new lame rule where you can't sell one for more than 500 in value, so what should i do?

Why wouldn't Apple exchange them if you ask?

they are giving me $1200 for the macbook pro offer that I completed. They said that is the value of the gift stated by laptopreviewpanel.com at the time that I signed up and completed the offer. Whereas in reality, the macbook pro retails for $1999.

I then asked them for the actual Macbook pro. They said they have none in stock and $1200 in Apple gift cards is my only option.

why not do the vespa or the black macbook for double the value.

You really expected them to send you a "$1200" Macbook Pro? Pretty naive. I've got news for you...you probably can't afford a "free" Macbook Pro either if the additional $99 plus $80 in sales tax for the Macbook is too much for you. The income taxes on the Macbook Pro would be twice that.

I did that site just to see what would happen, knowing full well they would probably back out of it and give me the $1200 instead. But at that time it was a very easy eight offers and the payout a decent $150 per offer.

Like i said before, I should have asked the CS to clarify the actual value of the Macbook Pro (b'c a $1200 Macbook Pro doesn't make sense) before I signed up and completed the site.

its all good now, i just went to the apple store 3 times in 1 hour, bought 2 ipods with the gift card, and they gave me another gift card for that value, and bought 2 ipods again and again, and they gave me back 5 different $500 gift cards now )

there are some 12 offers for $2500 around.
However, the last page is pretty much undoable.

more specifically, you need to do 8 offers on the last page, but the last page is filled with 6 doable ones and 6 OOD's.

Ahh, that sucks. They might have just started doing this, I've read of a few people being granted those extension. I also read an email someone received saying that they would reinstate the account if it expired. So is that it, they aren't going to work with you? From all the reports here they seem like a legit company, but that little stunt they just pulled on you would say otherwise.

I am going to copy my last few email exchanges with them. Maybe I misread what they meant about completing an additional offer. Seems to me the gave me the ok to complete another one. Either way doesn't look like I'm getting squat from them.

Dear Brian,

We do apologize for the inconvenience, however you were not credited for the Netflix offer because you did not complete the offer requirements. You are welcome to complete as many offers as you would like however, as stated in the program requirements as well as the terms & conditions, you do have 120 days to fulfill the program requirements or your account will expire.

Sincerely,

Subject Re Welcome to Netflix


Dear Customer Support,

Then why did you tell me I was "welcome to complete another sponsor offer" in the email below? If my account was going to expire before the additional offer credited, you should have stated as much instead of telling me to complete another offer. I spent additional time and money to completed another offer based on your email below on 12/23/08. Due to the fact that you specifically told me I could complete another offer I don't think its fair that you aren't extending my account. If my account was going to expire before the additional offer credited, why was I told it was okay to complete another offer?

Thanks,

Brian

Dear Brian,

We are unable to extend your account. When you completed your last sponsor offer the waiting time was 75 days, so even if that had not changed, your account would have expired before the offer credited. Your registration date is 10/9/08 so the 120th day is on 2/9/08.

Subject Re Welcome to Netflix


Dear Customer Support,


I completed an additional offer on 12/18/08 (please see below), however you have since changed your crediting time to 105 days. If I have counted the days correctly my 105 day waiting period will not be up until 4/1/09. Will I be given an extension on my account so that it will not expire before my additional offer has time to credit? When I originally signed up the waiting period was 30 days, then 45, etc. up to the current 105 days.

Thanks again,

Brian

Dear Brian,

Yes you may cancel Netflix at anytime and not owe them any money, however you then forfeit your credit with us. All free trials must be completed in order to receive credit for the offer.

We apologize for any confusion. You are welcome to complete another sponsor offer to fulfill the participation requirements of this offer.

I didn't ask them if I could cancel, that was their reason for not giving me manual credit on the Netflix offer, which is why I was doing a replacement offer. My issue is with why I was told I was welcome to do a replacement offer if they were just going to expire my account instead of getting an extension.

Yes, I cancelled on day 8 of a 10 day trial, which is allowed per the Netflix website, but since I didn't "complete" the full trial I was not given credit by Reward Depot.

I was then told by Reward Depot that "I was welcome to complete another sponosor offer to fulfull the participation requirements." Now that I've done that they aren't going to extend my account long enough for my replacement offer to credit.

Oh well, there went 9 offers down the drain.

Sorry man, Netflix has always been an iffy offer. I did it though because I didn't see anything else that I wanted to do. Hmm, I'm wondering if they will pull they same crap on me. I didn't cancel during the trial, but I did after. I guess we'll see!

Did you try any movies first or did you just wait the eight days and cancel? That may be a factor.

If you did the replacement offer in December, hard to believe that the company has not received confirmation on that offer. If you have email confirmation and proof that you were charged for the offer then there is no reason for them to deny you credit for that offer.

Exactly, this has always been a Netflix term as far as I can remember.

Netflix is one of the best offers out there, and they're so cheap to let it go past the trial that I don't understand why people don't just pay the first month. It's not like a lot of the more shady offers that hit you for $75-$150 worth of useless products if you go past the trial period (or even if you don't, in some cases). Netflix has a useful product, is very inexpensive, are very reputable and easy to cancel at any time. At least pay 'em for one month! I wish most offers were this easy and reliable (and useful).

Since I don't see a reference to when you completed the offers (or what the terms were at that point) in your original e-mail to them, I would suggest you try this

- State when you signed up, when you completed the offers and what the crediting period was at that point (I'm guessing 75 days). Do the math for them and tell them when you would have received credit within the 120 day restriction.

- State the date that your crediting time will be pushed to with the 105 day crediting period. Now show them how this is later than the 120th day.

- Ask them if there is any way to resolve the situation because you feel it would be unfair to be disqualified because the terms changed after you completed the gift's offer requirements.

That's what I did and they said I could have another 30 days when my account expires, though admittedly I have not reached the expiration deadline yet. They may have been blowing smoke up my ass, but I guess only time will tell.

Note that if you did your offers after something like January 14 then you are probably SOL. That's about when the terms changed to 105 days. As far as I can tell, even if you signed up under 75 days but completed the offers after the changeover you will probably not get an extension.

i don't see why people are jumping to conclusions so fast.

My reasoning for sending the email was to see if I would get the same response as other people. Some have written them way before their accounts expired and they were told that they would be granted an extension. Also you have to take into account what if some of my offers don't credit and then it takes them a few weeks to approve my mcr or they don't approve it and I have to complete another offer? I need to know if I will be granted an extension to do that.

It's easy for you to say calm down when you are pretty much done with the site and they didn't change the terms on you in the middle of waiting for credits.

Did you ask for an extention before your 105 days were up?[/quoted33d19c85e]

Yes i asked for the extension as soon as i was informed about the wait period change from 75 to 105. I told them i signed up in nov, completed my offers on 12/2. With the new terms I would technically 15 days from sign up to do my offers and i was well past that since they changed my terms in the middle of my wait. I told them that wasn't fair. They responded saying i will get an extension to allow time for credit. I also stated i have all documentation and confirmation of purchases along with bank statement.

[quote65051409e1="steveyankee"]Yeah, I'm not counting on getting my Vespa money through the normal way.

If I don't get it within this month, I will take them to court though. People can doubt all they want, but I will take them to court over $3,300.

I got all the emails, print outs, saying I am getting the Vespa or $3,300 in a check. So I got enough proof.[/quote65051409e1]

Welcome to the club!! Same thing happened to me. You can try to do another offer but you will have to wait the 105 days before it credits. Then you have to throw yourself at the feet of customer service to try and get an extension. My account just expired on Monday as they refused to extend my account past the original 120 days.

Good luck, let us know how it turns out.

Gamefly isn't a free trial; it's a reduced bill for your first month.

Here's an idea though- Sign up for offers that you're interested in, instead of making sure that you're in the clear to cancel them right away.

Did these people sign up, but not do any offers for 2 months or something?

Eeyore

17-02-2009 16:28:11

Translating for the reading impaired

If you signed up when the crediting terms were 45-60 days, and completed all your offers in the first 30 days thinking that you'd have 30 left even if it took two months to credit, you're now screwed. Your account will expire about 10 days before the offers credit under the new 105 day terms.

This looks like it is intentional.

actually, i cancelled for many reasons, none of them including what you are talking about. my main reason was i had to put down a deposit on a house im renting next year and a reworking of my budget does not allow for a monthly spending on games, another reason is that i dont like how they are out of the games i really want frequently, its not like netflix in that they tend to send you the games from your queue out of order by what is in.

since cancelling i have ordered another product of interest.

anywho, thanks for the smart ass comment, save your breath next time. its not appreciated.

105 days to credit.

120 days to expire.

Not extending accounts anymore.

ONLY thing to ship out were under valued apple gift cards.

Not one Vespa has been shipped out.

No one is evening getting every credit anymore.

And not to mention, 2+ months for manual credit.



Sounds like shit to me.

They are still extending accounts. Just got an email yesterday stating that if my account expires before I get credits, let them know and they will extend it for 30 days. I'm thinking it depends on what terms you were on when you signed up. They asked me when I completed, after I sent that email that's when they said they would extend for 30 days.

Btw, I signed up when the terms were 75 days.

1) People just got credits before 105 days, so you are wrong.

2-3) Yes it is true that accounts expire in 120 days but they stated they can extend your account, but can only do that once you are past the 120 day mark. So again, you are wrong.

4) The gift cards were not undervalued, please see the post above me. Again you are wrong.

5) This is true to my knowledge, yay you get one right!

6) Numerous people (including myself) received a bunch of credits a couple of days ago (see #1). You are wrong again.

7) Up for debate, could be around 2 months but not many people have done this lately, and we should know how long it takes once people who just got credits try and do the MCR's. I'll say that you are right on this one though...woo 2 out of 7!

Maybe people don't want to tell some of you that they received things because everyone here is so damn negative and annoying.

AdrienD1892

19-02-2009 12:54:25

I don't believe everyone is being negative or annoying. For the most part people are sharing knowledge of when they're credited, who's been credited, how long it takes and when gifts have been shipped. From this knowledge you can see if a pattern is being made. If so, it makes it easier and less stressful for those who have yet to do the site, or those still waiting for above mentioned info.

Contrary to what people believe, these are not FREE. You still have to spend money and take time and be dedicated in order to get something for a much cheaper price than retail. And is it worth it? Yes, definitely. I would gladly spend $60 to get something for $2400, however, you are still spending the $60 and that's a lot of money. You could argu,e of course, that if you do not have money to spend, that you should not do the site, but sometimes things are a gamble and let's face it, people like things in shiny packaging. (Or words that jump out and scream "FREE MACBOOK")

No reason to complain about those complaining. That just adds more negativity to the already few negative comments being made. No reason to complain about people double posting. It is going to happen. People are not patient. Call it a syndrom of the electronic era where everything is available at the click of a button, but such is life.

Just let it go and ignore the negative to focus on the positive. Unless, of course, your main goal is to get everyone wriled up and cause an arguement...

If you don't mind telling, what city were they mailed from?

I'm not trying to be negative either, but according to some accounts they've started doing borderline sleazy stuff like claiming that someone did not complete the site in the required 120 days even though all offers were done in 30 when the crediting time was 45-60 days. I really hope that these scattered mailings are more than just a way to keep the heat off.

Why not do both? Submit the manual credit confirmation emails they are asking for, and ask them to re-instate your account to do some replacements. If they don't want to re-instate your account in order for you to complete more offers, they don't have to- so you're kinda at their mercy.

Yeah i understand but its their fault since they changed their terms on my halfway through it from 60 to 105 but yes they are allowed to do that so i guess its my fault but one would think they would be nice enough to allow me to do my last two credits. (

Its basically an online savings account but they allow you to contribute to your savings account via bank account or by buying a electronic gift card. They charge you 2.9% if you use a credit card though which was only 14 dollars out of the 500. Once you redeem the electronic gift card you can stop saving and have it sent to your bank account for free. Just go to their website and it will explain a lot.

You have to put a minimum of 25 dollars in the savings account and choose how much you are trying to save. After you do that you can buy an electronic gift card and it is sent to your email address.You can choose at any time to close the savings goal and have the money sent back to your bank account for free.

What offer from Rewards Depot did you do? Also, did you have to request the VISA or were the VISA's the program you signed up for?

Curious because I signed up for the 8/$2400 MacAir which I hear they're not sending the physical Air but Apple Gift cards, which is fine, I don't want the Air but DO want the cards, or Visa's which would be much more useful.

Dangit...as for manual credits they returned my email and stated that if it has been over 105 days to send them the confirmation emails from the 2 sites that I did not receive credit for.

It hasn't been 105 days yet but do should I wait? Seems so dumb, like how will the credit in the next couple of weeks if they didn't already...

AdrienD1892

20-02-2009 09:29:02

Debo how long after you requested the gift cards did it take for you to get them?

Edge how can you do replacements now after your account has closed, if it has closed it has been after 120 days right? regardless of when the offers credit now you had to have done offers within 120days of sign up.

Sounds like you options are to get manual credit or start a whole new site.

Yeah it did pass the 120 days but when i signed up i wasn't expecting 105 days to credit so they should opt to help some of us who have been screwed by this, and some of us had been lucky enough to get an extension and I hope we can too

RolltheStampede

20-02-2009 11:47:26

the extensions have been to wait for credits not to do more offers. if you were worried about offers not crediting or not being able o get manual you should have done more to begin or before 120 days were up.

why not just wait for manual

Not really, it's to their advantage if you complete some offers but not complete the site. They're completely in the T&C to not let you do more offers after the 120. Also, there's no legit reason to suspect you won't get manual credit for the offers you completed.

The 3 that I need credited are Superfoods RX, Columbia House, and Gerber life insurance. I didn't get a confirmation email from superfoods, but I just realized that my gmail has been putting the superfoods emails in spam and then they get deleted every 30 days...I have the email newsletters from the last 3 weeks, do ya think that will count? Otherwise I have the credit card statement and the invoice for the initial shipment, with the date, etc.
What's the procedure for manual with them anyways? I emailed cs but haven't heard back yet.

Also, do any of you know if you sign up for another offer site that's affiliated with the Reward Depot if you will be disqualified from the gift because I already did an offer through another one of their sites? For instance, I want to sign up for this offer but it looks like a Reward Depot site. Thanks! http//www.elaptopsaver.com/offer?CID=2500&PID=170089&SID=44053&TID=651635000&c1=44053

Canceling offers is fine, if you are not satisfied with the product. But talking about it openly and giving advice on how and which offers to cancel is frowned upon (i.e. bannable). This is a business and for us to continue to be able to make money off of these sites, we need them to stay in business. And offer walk-throughs are no good for their business. The terms you sign-up to for both the site and the offer prohibit planned canceling, so you are breaking both terms by doing that.

120 days to expire.

And not to mention, 2+ months for manual credit.

1) People just got credits before 105 days, so you are wrong.

2-3) Yes it is true that accounts expire in 120 days but they stated they can extend your account, but can only do that once you are past the 120 day mark. So again, you are wrong.

4) The gift cards were not undervalued, please see the post above me. Again you are wrong.

5) This is true to my knowledge, yay you get one right!

6) Numerous people (including myself) received a bunch of credits a couple of days ago (see #1). You are wrong again.

7) Up for debate, could be around 2 months but not many people have done this lately, and we should know how long it takes once people who just got credits try and do the MCR's. I'll say that you are right on this one though...woo 2 out of 7!

Did YLS (black air) have a $50 visa bonus for doing a certain offer? I can't remember if I did or didn't do something like that. Under my account status it says "You are now eligible to receive $50 Visa Gift Card if you complete all requirements."

Have the same thing on my account. IIRC it was for the Purity Mineral Makeup offer, which I completed (and there was an advertised bonus when you completed it).

Also, anyone who has received manual credits in the past, what was the minimal time it took? Just want to see when I could maybe start to see the credits posted, and don't really want to go through the whole thread...I know it has been around a month for the most recent people but I am optimistic that it might be faster? hah

These people are shady. The offer reporting time went from 45 to 60 to 75 to 105 days. If all offers don't complete the first time through - which seems to be common with these people - you are screwed. That is my situation now - tomorrow will be day 120 and I fully expect my account to be expired and communication will probably stop.

Eeyore

03-03-2009 17:51:28

Mine is expired and they're still replying to me in about 24 hours. They've been rather cordial too. Assuming that you completed all your offers before the terms went to 105 days, they'll extend your account to allow for them to credit.

This always happens with any new site.
The new network starts up and has requirements which are easy to complete. Once somebody from here tests the site and gets a gift, it is flooded with tons of users from here. At this point the company realizes the flood of new completes and starts tightening its policies to deter easy completes. As long as you don't do something stupid and the company doesn't literally go out of business or just give everybody the middle finger, you will eventually get your gift.
Look at brandarama, 1 1/2 years ago, they were a great network with relatively quick turn-around and easy requirements, now you have people (myself included) waiting for 1+ years for their gift(s), but brandarama is still shipping out gifts at the pace of a trickle. If patience is not one of your virtues, you're going to need it to be.
Maybe it is shady, but this is the way it works, and most of the time you don't get screwed even though it may seem like it.

I agree with you - but Rewards Depot seems to be making it next to impossible to complete. My account is set to expire tomorrow - and they really won't say if they will extend it out for the offers I completed last week. We all know they don't need 105 days - but if they abide by their "current" rules - I think I'm screwed. I just got 2K from YF Direct - from over a year ago - so patience is something I'm used to - but these folks don't seem to give you any room for makeups.

If you did that then yeah, you're probably screwed. They have been extending accounts for people who completed the offers when the crediting time was 45-60 days and expired due to the 'new' 105 day crediting. But if you completed offers after the change in January they might not do it because you knew you didn't have enough time left. Tough call, but it doesn't hurt to ask. They have been very good responding to email. Wait until your account actually expires though.

I did all 12 offers back in November. After 105 days - 3 weren't showing up. One was in its own category at the bottom - and 1 they credited to the platinum category when I did it in the gold category. So now I was short one gold. So I redid a gold just last week - after the 105 days because I thought they would take care of the page discrepancies. Then they told me Netflix said I canceled before the 14 days was up - which is what the T&C says I have to do if I don't care for the service - but I guess even though it isn't mentioned on their site - if you want credit from Netflix - you have to become a paying member.(they don't have the greatest movie selection if you ask me) That in itself is shady of them to know that but not make us aware. They have emailed me back - but they don't seem willing to work with issues like this - I think they thrive on knowing that they will not allow any extensions - at least not long enough if you had any replacement offers needed.

They have a better selection than Blockbuster, movie gallary and Hollywood video combined. But Netflix is worth it if you're going to do TV shows on DVD. That's what I do, and It's great because I don't have to pay $5 for 4 episodes

I'm still hoping they give me an option. I want VISA's. I need the money and don't actually want a MacBook Pro anymore. I realized they're just not worth it for what I use a laptop for. My Ibook works just fine.

Be patient. They haven't done wrong by anyone yet. They've actually been very polite and timely about everything. No reason to go off like a rocket if 75% of your credit's haven't gone through. Just send them your email confirmations and wait a week.

Though I do wonder, so far most people have gotten credits on the days they have been doing the mass credit. Has anyone received a non-manual credit on a day when they were not doing a mass crediting?

My credit of today doesn't count because it is manual.

Hmm.. I haven't been following this at all since I completed all my offers 2 months ago. I tried to log in today for the hell of it and it says my user name/ password is invalid even though I'm using the exact one they gave me in the email and I'm pretty sure I didn't change it..

I emailed them asking about it but while I wait I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else.

Depends on the circumstances but 10 is normal. If you need more you can ask on day 10.

Yeah, they replied to my email stating that they will give me 10 days to print off my cert once I get credit for my offers, so don't know if you did all your offers but seems like that is their standard procedure.

[quote056b384624="box86rowh"]Got my $3300 check as did my bro...[/quote056b384624]

I really wish I would have known about that one before doing the one for $2500. I definitely could have used it, but I don't have the $60 to spend to redo the offers and wait about 120 days. But now I'm in a bit of a pickle though I do believe I will (hopefully) get an extension on my account.

When I signed up it was 60 days for offers to credit.
I signed up on Nov 25.
I completed 5 Offers on Nov 26
1 Offer on Dec 1, 3, and 16.

The offer on Dec 16 will credit on March 29th if it goes to the 105 days. However, my 120 days expires on March 24.

I'm not counting on the money, but I could really use it. With an "Anything can happen" economy right now I definitely need to save all I can get. And if I can wait a little longer and get Visa cards then hold onto them it would at least give me a little peace of mind while slowly waiting for my job to end...

EDIT I did get an email back today stating they would extend my account. So that is good at least, yes?

RolltheStampede

11-03-2009 07:17:54

you will be fine as long as your offers were completed before 120 days they should honor your account. Crediting time is between them and the sponsers. The Vespa was also 12 offers instead of 8 and at the time you started doing offers had already been hit with OOD I do believe.

Not long at all for processing the certs (maybe a week for me). There haven't been enough shipments to get a reliable average shipping time (but it is not the claimed 8-10 weeks).

Yea, it does take a while to get gifts. My account went "Offer Completed!" in mid-December, and I'm still waiting.... I e-mailed them 3 weeks ago and they said they couldn't get me an exact ship date, but they expected within the next 2 weeks. So hopefully it'll be soon...

Over all, So far, I'm very pleased with this company. The majority of my offers have credited before the 105 days, actually all of them save 2 have credited before 105 days. Turn around for emails has been about 2 days and always very polite and informative. The fact that people have gotten their gifts, I give this company a thumbs up.

That's fine. I rather wait than have to deal with figuring out what to do with a laptop I don't need/want. I can't return it to Apple, no receipt, and selling it on Ebay would cost a lot what with the price that it is worth. So really I have no course of action that is acceptable other than waiting for the cards.

Maybe the long date from completion to deadline has something to do with how long it takes the company to send out the item? I don't know...

What did you fix?

Yeah, I thought of that, but then I thought "well what happens if I get it and can't sell it" I mean I'm sure I'd have no problems it's just the hassle of doing so... I don't know, I have a day to think about it.

Someone said they have already received their Visa's but I can't remember if it was here or on A4F. I don't think they posted a timeline though...

For me video professor took like 2 weeks or so, so it varies. I think they do the manual credits in a batch so just depends on when the next batch is coming up..

you have to wait 105 days for manual, so you just need to wait. If you write in right now, saying things didnt credit, they'll ask if it's been 105 days, and then tell you to wait....

Sstaceyrae21

22-03-2009 11:15:21

I also got 10/12 offers credited - I put in for a manual credit for the two not credited and I was only at 82 days - they confirmed 1 of my credits already - about 3 days and the other they said to just wait the 105 days and get back to them if it doesn't credit. It was for netflix. I can almost see the finish line!

kwoodyk34k

22-03-2009 11:19:48

Actually 17.
But I think I might be in a pickle though.

On my other computer I have a neatly organized notepad file that had what page all the offers I did were on. Well that computer is broke now with no way to get that file out, lol.

So I had to go look at my e-mail for the confirmation e-mails.

The offers that I have done that I don't have any credit for are...

Vioderm - I know this was Platinum
Good Cook - I know this was Gold
NiteTrim
EZ Grant Source
Ivory White
Columbia House DVD
Recharge Energy

The rest I have no idea...

In a perfect world Vioderm and Good Cook credit and fulfill my current 1 platinum and 1 gold void.

But if they don't, how will I figure out what page all those offers were on when I did the site? Will they know on their end?

Have any of you done any of the offers I listed on or around December 29?

Which doesn't make any sense to me at all. To get a VISA card you can go online and order it, which seems like it would take less time than having to order a million different types of product. But maybe for the fact that we're asking for subs we have to wait longer than the people taking the gift originally offered? Maybe?

They might tell you to wait a week or so. You shoul dbe good if you kept it. I think Netflix and BB will work teh same so as long as you go a full month of service you are good to go, I believe that's what they check before credit is given.

LOL at the example, "Thank you so much for crediting 4 out of my 8 offers..."

You're welcome. I PM'ed you the address.

When I did the manual credit for Vioderm I wasn't at 105 days, I was at 85, but all the other offers I had finished the same day as Vioderm had credited. It took a week for them to credit Vioderm, so hopefully they'll do the same for you.

[quotee78ad8a699="AdrienD1892"][quotee78ad8a699="IceCold1906"]The visa cards are known to take a long time. I'm hoping if/when i get approved I'll be offered the cashiers check.[/quotee78ad8a699]

Which doesn't make any sense to me at all. To get a VISA card you can go online and order it, which seems like it would take less time than having to order a million different types of product. But maybe for the fact that we're asking for subs we have to wait longer than the people taking the gift originally offered? Maybe?[/quotee78ad8a699]

They don't buy them because it's better for them the longer they have the money in their own pockets. They can earn interest off of it, etc. And there's nobody making them ship within the 6-8 weeks. Plus, it deters people like us from doing sites with slow shipping times.

I sent emails to both the laptopreviewpanel domain and the reward depot asking if I can submit proof of subscription for blockbuster. I hope they get back to me soon. Just wondering should I have gone ahead and attached the confirmation email anyway, or should I just wait until they say I can?

Anybody had to submit Manual Credit Request for Teavalize? If so, how long did it take till you got credit?

RolltheStampede

25-03-2009 13:53:30

the time will vary because they contact the sponsors, since more people are needing manual now the crediting time for manuals is sure to slow down, used to be like 2 days, then 1 week, then 2 weeks. you can see the slow down.

I was Dec. 16th for the $500 VISA

So I got an email back from laptopreviewpanel, and they said if it's over 105 days then I can send in proof. So it looks like I will be shooting them an email with my confirmation a little after the 30th.

Anybody think it's possible blockbuster might come though on it's own by the 105 days?

If it didn't come by day 100 I really doubt it's going to be there by 105. Most offer completions are in fact reported instantly to their affiliate, it's only clever business techniques that makes us wait X amount of days.

That's what I figured, hope after I submit my proof they will give me the credit.
