Off-Topic / Product Test Followup
« on: January 24, 2017, 09:52:44 am »Message ID: 1118739
I think it would be great if the survey companies who pay us for various product tests, would follow up afterwards and tell us what products we reviewed. I think most of the time, it is future products that aren't yet on the market, but if/ when they do put them on the market, it would be very nice if they would send an email with a coupon and a note like "hey, remember when you gave a rave review to such-and-such a product? Well, now its available in stores, and here's a coupon so you can buy it!" For example, I've been doing a long running cat food test, where they send different cat food samples, then I do short surveys on how the cat liked them. There were some he really enjoyed, and I would sure like to buy those kinds if they are ever in the stores, but I would have no idea what brand or flavor they are!

Off-Topic / Making Money from a Blog?
« on: January 20, 2017, 10:36:54 am »Message ID: 1118125
How do people really make money from blogs? I was thinking about starting a blog not specifically about money-making sites, but one of those "homestyle" type blogs that have a variety of posts about various things I do online and offline, like Photoshop designing, etc. But I don't understand how blogs make money. How do you get enough traffic to the blog, especially when it's a new one? I don't want to spend hours a day posting my blog link all over the internet, in the vague hope that somebody will actually click on it and visit my site.

Suggestions / Trial Pay offers
« on: January 05, 2017, 08:40:51 am »Message ID: 1115447
FC, PLEASE get more Trial Pay offers! Most of the other GPT sites like Swagbucks have pages and pages of Trial Pay offers, and most of them credit well. We need to get some fresh new offers on this site, so that we can start earning money again.

Offers / So much for Tasks!
« on: December 27, 2016, 03:58:49 pm »Message ID: 1113129
So I went to Tasks to try out a task that someone had mentioned, that sounded interesting. I have NO available tasks! I guess Crowdflower must have blocked me, since it's been so long since I've done any? Oh well, I guess it's better than wasting time trying to get them to work correctly. I sure wish I could find something that I could do that would actually credit!

FusionCash / Illegal Advertising on Fusion Cash!?
« on: December 19, 2016, 09:17:30 am »Message ID: 1111678
FC, please check your banner ads more closely!!! I just clicked on one that was for a "Paypal money generator," and it is a cheating hack site that steals money illegally from Paypal and actually boasts about it! Please don't encourage illegal behavior, Fusion Cash.

Off-Topic / Freedom Pop is a Scam!
« on: November 28, 2016, 08:46:04 am »Message ID: 1107146
I frequently see ads for Freedom Pop on Facebook, promoting their completely free cell phone service. A few months ago I decided to give it a try. So I signed up for a month of Free Premium service, after which I could downgrade to their free standard plan, with no cost except the $.99 activation fee. I got the sim card and tried to activate it, but it turns out my phone was too old. OK, no problem, I dutifully downgraded to the free plan, well within the trial period, and got email confirmation that I wouldn't be charged. Now, 3 months later, I realize that I have been charged a monthly fee of $7.99 for the past 3 months! (I know, I should have kept closer watch on my checking account, so it IS partly my fault for not catching it sooner.) That is a total SCAM!!!!! I double checked my account, and sure enough I'm still on the free plan, and they insist that there is no charge! I sent them a very irate email, but so far I haven't gotten a response. I'll call them tomorrow, and they better refund me, or I WILL do a chargeback, as well as report them to the BBB, and post negative comments on all their Facebook sponsored posts, every time I see one.

Off-Topic / My Points is going downhill
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:31:44 am »Message ID: 1095549
I am disappointed with My Points now that they've merged with Swagbucks. I just got an email saying that they will now only be paying random points for web searches, instead of a fixed amount. I hate random search rewards, because I rarely ever win anything (although once I did win 99 points from Swagbucks). I like to get paid for every search I do, even if it's only a fraction of a cent. I guess I'll just stick with Bing, even though their changes have made it harder to reach cashout as well.

Off-Topic / Super Couponing Haul!
« on: September 29, 2016, 09:43:44 am »Message ID: 1095541
I made a big haul last night, from Walmart, using coupons and rebate apps! I think this is my biggest yet. I had $62 worth of products before coupons; after coupons it was reduced to $38.83. Then I got $19.50 plus $17 in bonuses back from Ibotta, and $1.00 from Checkout51. So my total for all that was only $1.33! (And now I'm petered out for a while, LOL!)

Off-Topic / Wrong Discussion Board?
« on: September 23, 2016, 10:19:37 am »Message ID: 1094358
Doesn't it seem like lately there have been a lot of posts in the wrong boards? General moneymaking should be here in the Off Topic board, and general FC moneymaking would be better posted in the Fusion Cash board, or the Offer board if it's about a particular offer, rather than the Support board. I hope things aren't starting to get out of control here.

Suggestions / New Offer Suggestions
« on: July 20, 2016, 10:11:21 am »Message ID: 1080805
FC, I have a suggestion for some new offers you could try to get. I've done some Daily Break offers on other sites, and they are extremely fun, and credit well, too. I think they are on the Radium One offer wall.

Off-Topic / Finally doesn't always mean finally
« on: July 08, 2016, 09:52:20 am »Message ID: 1078551
I'm doing this extremely long survey on Your Word (which seems to have all extremely long surveys now), and after nearly an hour, the question comes up "Finally, which do you use most often..............." Naturally, I would assume that is the last question, but no, there's probably 20 more questions after that! Don't they know that finally means "the end?" This is why I get burned out, and don't do surveys for months at a time. Right now I'm in a survey frenzy, because I'm trying to earn enough for a camera on Amazon, but I dont' think I'm going to last very long at this rate.

Off-Topic / Wow I almost missed April's bonus!
« on: May 30, 2016, 02:28:22 pm »Message ID: 1069792
I just checked my forum posting bonus status, and discovered that I have never submitted my claim for April's bonus! After tomorrow, it would have been too late! I'm so glad I noticed that and was able to claim before the time was up. That would have been 3 easy bucks down the drain.

Off-Topic / Virginia residents, tax question please
« on: April 23, 2016, 08:54:49 pm »Message ID: 1061916
Here's a question for any FC members who live in VA and own a car, is the personal property tax really high? I've seen a few online calculators, and for a $15,000 vehicle, the estimates usually come to around $250-$300 a year! Is that really true? Do you have to pay registration, inspection, etc. on top of that? I was hoping to move there this year, but that is outrageous! Thanks in advance.

Offers / not working?
« on: April 22, 2016, 10:06:00 am »Message ID: 1061634
I'm having trouble with the offer in the "New" section. every time I click the link, I get a "page not found error." Is anyone else having a problem with it? I have a bunch of coupons I need to print, and it would be super to get paid for it!

Offers / Hurray!!! Carousels are working today!
« on: March 11, 2016, 09:37:10 am »Message ID: 1052522
Yay! the video and website carousels are finally working again! I was able to get my five cents with no problems, none of that endless robot thing, or videos that won't load, or timers that dont' work. They all played fine, except for a few small glitches in the videos (which is probably because of my internet connection) and they credited right away.
