Tips for Freebies, Surveys And Free GPT Offers

1. I usually skip ones that need your Social Security number.

2. Try doing just these 100% freebies before you start on paid trial offers.

3. Pay attention to the requirements of the offer in order to get paid. Some offers require you to complete just the 1st page or two or just submit your zip code / email.

4. BUT if they ask you to do an offer or if you click “yes” on an offer, find “no thanks” or “skip” either at the bottom or top right of page and click to continue to complete the survey. NEVER do an offer during surveys/freebies.

5. Use CCleaner to delete cookies instead of doing it manually. Delete cookies in between every offer. It’s faster and easier. Remember not to delete cookies while you’re still completing the offer.

6. With some free offers, you probably don’t have to go through all 15 or whatever links or complete any other offers along the way before you get to the end “thank you” page. Freebies seem to be one of those mysteries of the universe, some get credited some won’t but most of the time it’s our fault.

7. Don’t complete a large number of related offers in a short time span. Try not to do a ton of surveys in one sitting. Do maybe 10-15 then come back.

8. Don’t use the same email for more than one offer from the same company.

9. Know that advertiser’s databases often limit the number of signups you can have per physical address, phone number, etc, as well as email address.

10.Don’t complete the same freebie offer more than once, either at the same site or a different site.

11.Take your time with the surveys!. If you use RoboForm try slowing down a bit before you reach the end of the survey. If you complete a survey too fast, the company will think you’re not a real person filling it out.

12.Freebies usually credit within the hour, or at most a few days. If a freebie stays in your “pending” after a few days, delete it so you can redo it at a later time. Once any offer is “denied” you’ll never be able to do it again.

When to Stop on Freebies (a great time saver):

Consumer Promotion Center, Brand Survey Panel, My Elite Rewards, Rewards Gateway, My Insider Deals, My Select Gifts, Savings List -Submit 2nd page

Consumer Expression, Consumer Beat, Winning Surveys, Survey Networks, Opinion Direct -Do until you see message in black at the top that reads “Thank you. Your information has been received successfully…” There will be an additional survey beneath this message. Do not do it.

Net Panel – Done when progress bar in upper right corner shows completed and when you see “Exclusive Bonus Offer…” at top of page. When you get to this page the progress bar will be empty again but you are done.
