I was emailed a new rewards site to check out and it looks interesting (although a bit confusing). I decided to give it a shot. You can earn a $5 gift certificate pretty easily and you have a chance of winning a $1000 gift certificate. Here is how it works.
STEP ONE: You need to sign up. Once you do you will have to verify your email address and complete a “basic information” survey and you will get 500 points. This will get you the $5 award, but you have to have a “platinum” membership to redeem only 500 points (otherwise you have to wait until you get 2500 points).
STEP TWO: Once you complete an “advanced profile survey”, upload a picture, and refer 5 friends you will be a platinum member and you can cash out your $5 gift certificate.
STEP THREE: If you want to try for the super rewards then choose a program. You can pick the ladder or the challenge. I choose the ladder and they were offering a deal so you could skip all the levels if you emailed 10 people. Do that! If they are no longer offering that then it might be better to try the challenge.
STEP FOUR: Now that you are to the final level of the ladder they will give you 7 days to refer as many people as you can. Here are the different levels:
Prize Level #1 = Refer 5 people
Prize Level #2 = Refer 10 people
Prize Level #3 = Refer 5 people that each refer 1 person
Prize Level #4 = Refer 5 people that each refer 5 people
Prize Level #5 = Refer 10 people that each refer 10 people and win 100,000 points ($1000)
I can’t seem to find the prizes for the first four levels, but if they are the same as the challenge then you will get 50 points ($0.50) for level one, 300 points ($3) for level two, 1000 points ($10) for level 3, and 5000 points ($50) for level 4. The requirements are different though so I am not positive that those are the correct prizes for those levels.
The first 5 people you have to refer to become a platinum member do not count toward this total so you will have to refer a total of 15 people and, 10 of the referrals you make after your first 5 have to refer 10 people of their own to make $1000. This has to happen in 7 days.
STEP FIVE: You can also earn points by doing surveys, searches, and you can hit a “prize” button to see if you get an instant prize a certain number of times a day (100 if you are a platinum member). I will try those out this month and report back to you, but for now the only part I can recommend is the super easy referral system since I haven’t had time to try the surveys/searches/instant prize.
Good luck! It is a pretty easy $5 and some of you who are big on facebook, email, or other referral systems might be able to make the $1000!
