Earnings expire after 180 days or if a survey is rejected.  Check the "Account" page for the oldest date (at the bottom of list) and calculate the time span so you don't lose any money, cashout before 180 days

How would any of us know why YOUR earnings were reduced? If you do surveys or offers you probably had something revoked. Or something expired. THIS is why you do not hoard earnings for 6 months. In the past there was no reason anyone should not have been able to cash out in 180 days. Now with nothing working on the site no one may be able to cash out in 6 months.

So you are obviously a seasoned FC member and know that you have 6 months to cash out, so I doubt with $20 you have not been losing out for that reason. My only guess is a survey revoked. Since you posted 2 days ago, and wait...how'd you do that? Did the site not go down for you? Anyway, have you figured it out yet?

Losing that small amt might be that a survey got revoked

That's why I'm cashing out end of this month. Figured out I've made about 12.00 a month.  Like when we get a penny for trying a survey something better then nothing.

That depends on how you look at it.  Is it worth it to spend 10 to 15 minutes on something and then get paid a penny?  A penny for 15 minutes of time is not better than nothing.

That is your opinion and you are entitled to that.

Mine is opposite, I have to keep breathing for that 10 to 15 minutes anyway and trying a few surveys that pay me a penny even when I get disqualified, is absolutely better than nothing. I can't go do anything without risking Covid-19, so at least sitting here earning pennies is safer. Then I can take those pennies and buy the dips on my Bitcoin account and suddenly I have a hundred dollar bill (Gift Card) I can buy groceries with.

THAT is the key... (that and finding the best place to reliably buy BTC with the lowest transaction fees).

Yes, I am. And without being insulted. Bitcoin and a lot surrounding it is illegal.  Maybe that is why you had accounts seized in the past and lost money in PayPal.

I have better things to do with my life than spend 30 minutes clicking around on surveys for a payout of a couple of pennies. There are better PTC sites that pay better and actually have things that work on their site.

You sound like a very fearful person. I can go pretty much anywhere without fearing covid. You act like walking to the mailbox is a risk of getting a virus with a 99% survival.

You are right about PayPal, but it had nothing to do with the legality issue, they set their own laws and I am doing just fine without them now. Yes I do fear Covid, even if it is only a 1% chance I believe in the numbers that apply to us 80+ year old seniors and prefer to avoid it. Of course it helps that the last 14 years of clicking around for pennies has led to over $6,000 in my bank account and Bitcoin returns of over $1,000 in 2020.

I used to love "clicking around for pennies", but b/c I work at a retirement community, I am an "essential worker" so I am working more now than ever.  Had my 1st Covid Vaccine at the beginning of the month and looking forward to the 2nd. 

 I don't have a whole lot of time to spend on FC, so getting that .05 is sketchy every day.  I have a $35 cashout pending and although I will continue to do what I can, I just do not have the time or energy to spend minutes upon minutes looking for a survey.  I probably won't totally give up on FC, but..........
