Go to the Beginner's guide for basic information. (Support section of Forum – top of page)
I limit myself to the Dailys: Click on "Offers" at the top of the FC page and then click on "Dailys"
This section has several Daily surveys (you can COMPLETE one survey from each of the sites in any 24 hour period)
Be sure to clear your cookies and temps before you begin the surveys in a particular survey site (box).
Being able to complete a survey depends on your demographics, so don't be surprised if you are disqualified (DQ'd) on several surveys before you are able to complete one.
When you get the congradulations page for a survey, keep that page open for 5-10 minutes - or until you receive confirmation that the survey has credited to your account. I usually have my account page open in another tab so I can view it and refresh periodically.
If the survey doesn't credit in 10 minutes, take a screen shot of the page, bring it up on "PAINT", add a few comments so you can identify it, then save it as a jpeg picture (I usually name the picture FCPOPdate, so I can find it easily later.). If you don't receive credit in a day or two, you can send the jpeg picture to Support and hope they will be successful in getting credit for themselves and for you.)
Then I do the daily $.15 click, and check for $.01 or .02 viedos ads to watch. If you haven't signed up for the daily paid email, the box to do so is in this section. That will come to your mail box shortly after you sign up. If you don't see it in a day or two, check your spam files.
Then check the Forum Contests and Promotions sections. There are mini-contests (Tues/Wedn; Sat/Sun) worth a couple of cents; and, of course, the $3.00 monthly Posting Bonus. Then do your daily posting to the Forum. If you try to do one or two every day, it's easy to reach the 30 posts each month.
I cash out every 3-4 months. Not a lot, but worth the time and effort required.
Cashing out is easy enough. When you have a minimum of $25 in your account, of which at least $15 is from offers, you click on the cash out link and it will take you the section to cash out. You need to have a verified PAYPAL account to cash out that way. You need a bank account to use Direct Deposit. And you can ask for a check -- which is mailed to your home address. Your option. Believe you can put some/all of the required information in before you are eligible to withdraw.
I usually have more than $26 in my account before I make the request. If you are doing offers, and any of the credits on those offers get reversed and the reversal causes your offer amount to drop below $15/25, your cashout request will be denied (amount will be put back in your account.)
Any credit to your account that is more than 180 days old will expire. You will see a red notice on your account page when a credit reaches 150 days to remind you that this credit is about to expire. Try to cash out before you lose any credits.
