footemama.. I'm pretty sure you guys aren't talking about the same site. The site talked about is one that also has a sister site that is basically exactly the same. They have the same support center, layout, everything. Only the sister site doesn't have as many offers, and no videos.
The site in question does give a $5 signup bonus and then basically another $5 bonus as soon as you request your first payout which is a minumum of $30. What happens is, first of all they charge a fee of $3 for the cashout. They only send checks. And then after requesting the check, you automatically get a bonus of $3 which is what they call a Payment Bonus. And then you are asked if you want to participate in a survey for $2. They survey is just a very quick 2 minute survey actually about your payment process experience and I think a little about your experience thus far with the site.
It's really just a way to try and keep you a member by making it look like they are giving you another $5 to start out with.
It's actually pretty cool because it's all free bonus money.
They give you $5 when you initially sign up.
Take $3 back when you reach $30 and request a check.
Then give the $3 back to you as a "Payment Bonus"
And then give you another $2 for completing the little survey.
So all together you are getting $7 in free money.
Like I was saying, just a way to try and keep you as a member after requesting your first check.
And you were right about one thing...
They will cancel your account and not send your check if you do not stay an active member.
But the good thing is that you can stay an active member by just confirming 1 or 2 of their paid emails every few days.
I believe under their Terms of Membership an inactive member is one that doesn't have any activitity for 2 weeks I think it is.
So as long as you confirm one of their paid emails every few days you will stay and active member and have no worries about receiving the check.
Tell ya what though, the site we're talking about I have been a member for about 2 1/2 months and my first check from them was for $154.19!!
I waited and completed a lot of stuff. Like Savings Circle, myOnReader, FreeCreditScore.com, CreditScore.com, BillMyParents, etc....
and it took me about 6 weeks to accumulate the $154.19 - I actually had $157.19 before the fee.
And I actually just cashed out with them again on the 24th and should receive my next check of $42.68 on Mon or Tue.
One bad thing with them is that it does take a little longer to receive your first check with them.
They send out checks the first day of the SECOND month after request.
For example.. If check request is on Oct 1st, 14th, 22nd, 25th, or even the 30th, Check will be processed on Dec 1st.
Basically takes 1 full month, compared to only 20 days with FC.
But once you receive your first check, you become a Gold Member and you can request and receive checks Weekly. (If you have the $30 min.)
That site is pretty cool but I still like FC better I think. I wish I had discovered FC sooner. Only been a member less than 3 weeks.
FC has such a good referral system and has a lot of cool bonuses. Plus $0 fees on cashout.
I didn't mean to hack your guys thread and say so much,
It's just 5AM EST and I couldn't sleep. I was just pretty sure I knew the site in question and I know a lot about it.
Hope I helped!
As always.. FUSION CASH ROCKS PRETTY HARD!!
