Welcome to FC! You'll find the Forum to be a useful source of information of how things work around here. Always a lot of folks who are willing to share their thoughts.
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 a survey for a given survey site..
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.
Check out the Contests and Promotions section of the Forum. There are weekly mini-contests, the monthly Posting bonus, and a couple of other bonuses that are worth keeping in mind.
I usually cash out every 3-4 months. Not a lot, but well worth the time I have to spend to get it.
