DIY link list announcement-- please read

Hi everyone, I have an important announcement. RewardZone USA recently disqualified someone for signing up for a RewardZone USA site on this blog. This used to not be an issue, but now we have Nuitech and RewardZone USA who are against blog links. I don't want anybody else to be disqualified, nor do I want these DIY companies upset with me. So I am removing the link list from our blog. This blog still serves a purpose as it gives DIY updates and payment reports, so it will stay. We just can't keep something around that gets people disqualified and puts our blog in danger of shutting down.

I hope you all understand. Thank you for your time.

Nuitech's "invitation only" sites + inactive business names, RewardZone USA's new rule and members receiving gift cards with zero balances + Omnicard.com discussion, payment reports...

Nuitech's "invitation only" sites, and business names showing "inactive" in Florida's Secretary of State; RewardZone USA sending out gift cards with zero balances and new rule; Omnicard.com discussion, payment reports. Let's go outside and breathe in some fresh, spring air...



Our first topic is Nuitech's new "invitation only" sites. Late last year I discovered through readers, and Nuitech themselves, that their sites are now "invitation only," meaning you will only receive valid links through their e-mail advertisements, pop-up advertisements, and/or web page banners. Links obtained from friends and blogs are not valid and you will not earn a reward. Since it would take forever to remove all the links from 2008 until now, I will just remove the first two pages of Nuitech links from this blog. So please do not sign up for anymore Nuitech sites on my blog.

Here are some of the conversations between myself, three members, and Nuitech, which may give you a better idea of what is going on...

Interesting Nuitech exchange

Hello,

I sent Nuitech an e-mail asking them what the gift card for the 10 offers for $1,000 was for and they replied by saying that their gift sites are invitation only and that I cannot complete the site unless I received an e-mail from them with the link. I'm assuming others have asked them about the same site since I did not offer up any information where I found the link.

I also have been trying to ask them if there is any way to use a fresh e-mail address since the one I used to use has been closed and they keep ignoring me :\

Hi there,

Sorry for the delayed response, I just have had a lot going on.

Hm, that's odd. I haven't done Nuitech in years but my last site was not "invitation only." I found it elsewhere on the web, then signed up, completed my offers, turned in my paperwork and I was done. I wonder how long they've been doing that? Would you mind sharing their e-mail response to you with me? I asked a good friend of mine who does Nuitech all the time. He hasn't responded back yet though.

As for the e-mail, their terms and conditions state the following: 'using multiple email addresses to circumvent the Program" -- I would wait until I got a response out of them before starting a new site. They need to understand the reason for you needing to use a new e-mail so that they do not think you are trying to break the rules. Have they answered you yet?

Thanks,

wozniack

I'll forward you their response once I'm at a computer. And nope. I've e-mailed them 3 times over the last 3 weeks asking about the e-mail situation and no reply.

"Please send us the email you received for that gift card, so that we can tell you what it is for. Remember that our programs are presented to customers by invitation only. This means that you will only receive valid links through our e-mail advertisements, and/or Web page banners. Links obtained from friends or other venues usually are obsolete and will not enable you to qualify for gift redemption."

Hi member,

That is very interesting. My friend, who does Nuitech all the time, said he finds his links online and that he never gets them through e-mail. Nuitech has always paid him for doing these sites. I also have never heard of that happening. Would you mind if I shared their e-mail to you with my readers? I promise to keep you anonymous.

Thanks,

wozniack

Sure, you may share it. It's the least I could do after you sent me that link :) I don't have any faith in them ever responding to me to allow me to do one of their sites again anyway. Do you know off the top of your head if I-deal requires the same e-mail address for every gift?

I did that 8 offer $500 Kroger card for rewardzone. All my offers were "Success" about a week ago and I requested my gift but haven't heard anything. I just got a "Thanks" page when I entered all my information. Is that typical?

diyfreebies@gmail.com

member,

You can use multiple e-mails on I-Deal sites but you can only use one e-mail per DBA. For example. If I signed up with diyfreebies@gmail.com on a site under their Top Notch Media DBA, I couldn't sign up with a different e-mail on another Top Notch Media DBA site. If you sign up with more than one e-mail under the same DBA, you risk disqualification. You can find an I-Deal DBA at the bottom of each gift site. It should say something like "an , Inc. website" next to the copyright.

Yes, that is typical of RewardZone USA. You may have to e-mail them though to make progress: info@rewardzoneusa.com -- Tell them you completed all of your offers. From there, they may ask for a copy of your photo I.D. and they should send you your electronic forms to fill out shortly thereafter.

Thanks,

wozniack

Subject: Nuitech questions...

Hi member,

Somebody sent me this the other day but I'm confused... Nuitech sites are 'invitation only'? When did that happen? Also, can they use another e-mail? Below is the e-mail I received from this individual.

Hey Woz,

They only want their customers to come from the ads they send out in emails. I read somewhere in the past that they said the same thing to somebody. Maybe you could complete a small site and see what happens. Or due to the gift rule of one per year, maybe you would want to gamble and complete the larger gift site. I never visited their sites through a link in an email before. Also, does their terms and conditions say it? If not, you should be good.

You can only use one email address at a time. Only persue your accounts with them with one email address. If they find you signed up in the past using a different email address, they might contact you to remind you of the rule.

Hope that helps. And hope you are well!

Member

P.S. Where I'm coming from regarding their invitation only comment, is that they were a well rated company in the past with the BBB and they always worked with their customers to resolve things according to their rules as you know. Things can change but if it's not in their terms and conditions then you still have some leverage.

Conversation with member #3:

Hi Wozniak,

I wish I had kept the email but I deleted it.

I wrote to Nuitech about the links you provided (I didn't say where I had got them from) and they said to me that they are not valid even though the page loads.

They mentioned they are from 2012 and 2013 and that I specifically need an email invitation from them, probably through another site, in order to do the promos.

The links you have listed load the webpage but are not valid. The copyright info has old years.

Nuitech--

http://www.hotgiftsnow.com/rd_p?p=346351&t=23174&c=&a=#MBID# - 6 offers, no refs/$250.00 Best Buy gift card

http://www.offersgonewild.com/rd_p?p=339833&t=23158&c=&a=#MBID# - 10 offers, no refs/$1,000.00 gift card. I'm assuming it's a Visa since it says "$1,000.00 gift card," but I would ask Nuitech anyway.

http://consumergiftcards.com/rd_p?p=352466&t=25030&c=&a= - 8 offers, no refs/$500.00 Macy's gift card.

Their customer service rep was upset with me because apparently I asked the same question last year and the response was no, even though their website will work and log the sponsors it is not valid.

I would hold off posting their links on your blog as others might not know they're invalid and go ahead and do the sponsors not realizing they won't get a gift.

I did the Gadget link and that worked, also DealZingo, that worked and I sent off the redemption form.

Member

Member's second e-mail

Feb 26

I got the cheque last week! Waiting for an iPad Air from gadget center

Any chance of providing us with new links!

Nuitech don't like ppl signing up from your links because they're too old. They told me I had to wait for an email invitation. How am I supposed to get one?

Member

Hi Member,

Congrats on getting your check!! I got mine at the end of January. Once I deposited the check, it cleared the next day! That's great about your iPad Air as well. I'm almost finished working on an I-Deal site that just so happens to be a gadgetcenter site. Someone said their son recently did it and got $700.00 in Visa gift cards instead of the Apple iPad! So I am hoping I get the same reward. Here is the link: http://www.gadgetcenter.us.com/?session_id=473d595cef4311e6a233e6da23d6de30

I wonder if they will send you a gift card too? I hope they are still sending out gift cards. A long time ago I did a Treo phone site hoping to get a gift card like the previous individual but I got the Treo phone instead. I knew I could possibly end up with the phone, but I took the gamble just to see if I could get the gift card. :)

As for Nuitech, I am trying to figure that out myself. I know they don't like the old blog links, and I will be writing about the Nuitech link issue in my next blog. I'm working on the new blog now and will add some links to it. The really good links like the 10 offer, no ref/$700.00 gift card I-Deal site I started last month I keep off the blog though. I do this so the good links stay around longer for everyone. But you can check in every so often to see if I have anything good, and I will send it right to you if I do! Some of the links I post, like from Amped Media sites, those are always $500.00 profit, so I don't really share them through e-mail. Nuitech handles Amped Media Fulfillment, and I think the actual offer processing. So they may only allow e-mail invitation on those sites (Amped Media). I need to get confirmation on that.

Thanks,

wozniack

Hi Wozniack,

Thanks for reply. The link you sent is one I just did! And got paid for but only $500 in visa g/c. No $700 :( Still, I found an iPad Pro on eBay for my wife and the iPad Pro pencil for less than $500 so it all worked out.

Looking forward to your next blog!

Member

Hi Member,

Awww, only $500.00?! Poor us! Well, at least there was no referral though... That's good that you got the iPad Pro and iPad Pro pencil for under $500.00~! Glad it worked out. :))

I have been sending out e-mails for tomorrow, three of which went to Nuitech. There are some new findings concerning their corporations and limited liability companies. As for their "invitation only" gift sites, I had an idea. Their Coolsavings site is still up and running. Perhaps when you sign up on Coolsavings, in addition to coupon e-mails, you will get gift site e-mails. I noticed that when you click "Free Stuff" the page in the middle loads all sorts of gift sites. It loaded a site from RewardZone USA, though Coolsavings is connected to Nuitech and not RewardZone USA. I can't remember what I clicked, but somewhere on the Free Stuff page it lets you check the status of your Nuitech site...

Anyway, I'm signing up for Coolsavings to see if I can get Nuitech sites sent to me that way. If they send us Nuitech sites, then we've solved the mystery!

Coolsavings site: http://www.coolsavings.com

Thanks,

wozniack

So far the only thing I have received from Coolsavings is a welcome e-mail linking to my account page. On my 'My Account' page, under 'My Deals Preferences,' I selected "Preferred Interest" on all interests, and selected "Daily" when asked, '"How often do you want to receive the deals newsletter from CoolSavings?"' under 'My E-mail Subscriptions.' I'm hoping we receive Nuitech links via the Coolsavings site. Now my brief exchange with Nuitech...

Dear me,

Thank you for your inquiry. We currently do not have any Amped Media site. Our programs are presented to customers by invitation only. This means that you will only receive valid links through our e-mail advertisements, pop-up advertisements, and/or Web page banners. Links obtained from friends or other venues like blogs usually are obsolete and will not enable you to qualify for gift redemption.

Hi,

4 years ago, the President and CEO of Amped Media, Jonathan Gies, replied to my question below regarding Nuitech and Amped Media sites.

My question:

"I asked OG Logistics/Nuitech, a company out of Florida, who claimed to handle customer support for rewarding promos and rewards-aisle sites, but they never responded. I am just trying to find out more about this particular gift site, and hopefully give my readers some peace of mind. Unfortunately I was unable to include the link to the site in this PM due to Facebook blocking it. Could I e-mail it to you?"

Jonathan Gies's reply:

"Nuitech does handle our reward fulfillment, they are a separate entity."

I will ask Jonathan Gies directly about who handles fulfillment for the current Amped Media sites.

Thank you for the information you have provided.

Dear Wozniack,

Thank you for your response. We noticed you referred to \"rewarding-promos\" in your email. We give service to hundreds of different sites, and in customer service inquiries are received by the site name not the parent company. Now we can confirm that we do handle fulfillment for \"rewarding-promos\" and he terms state \"Only one gift per DBA per person and/or household for one year after your registration date.\" We apologize for the confusion.

I wondered how the "invitation only" rule affected Amped Media if at all. So I contacted Nuitech directly via their offersgonewild gift site. I also asked them the following about their businesses that are showing "inactive" with Florida's Secretary of State. You can see their response to my message below...

My message to Nuitech:

Hi,

Thank you for answering my e-mails from November. I have some questions though. Does the "invitation only" rule apply to Amped Media's gift sites as well since you handle Fulfillment for Amped Media? Do you also approve a member's offers in addition to handling Fulfillment? Or do you just handle Fulfillment?

Also, I tried visiting oglogistics.net but the site would not load. So I checked with Florida's Secretary of State and it shows that OG Logistics, LLC. is "inactive." The same goes for Coolsavings, LLC. Can't find anything for Leadmark Advertising, Inc either. What company name(s) are you currently under? I just wanted to know for my record keeping. I also like to separate the active from the inactive companies in my list.

I checked my records again, and forgot that this is also another business of yours: Q INTERACTIVE, LLC. Q INTERACTIVE, LLC shows "active" while SELLING SOURCE, LLC shows "inactive." Is your current company name Q Interactive, LLC.? Do you have any others? And, would your gift program be managed under Q Interactive, LLC. provided Q Interactive, LLC. is your other company name?

Thanks,

me

Nuitech's reply

Nuitech has still not replied. So I will just wait, and hopefully by the time my next blog is published they will!

Next up for discussion is RewardZone USA. RewardZone USA have been making some changes and we will talk about that now. The first change is how often you can receive a reward from them. Their new rule: "Incentives are limited to one incentive of any kind per household (persons living at the same address) within any twelve calendar month period provided you must wait 24 calendar months after you claim a Tier 2 incentive before you can claim another Tier 2 incentive." -- This means you must wait 2 years from the time you started your last RewardZone USA site before you can do another one. I was surprised to see this change as most DIY companies make you only wait a year max-- unless it is a "one site per lifetime" DIY company like Consumer Gain was. I think with Consumer Gain you could do two sites per lifetime before it changed to just one. The last time I did a Rewardzone USA site was in January of 2016, because I bought a new computer at that time with my earnings. So I can do them again in 10 months.

RewardZone USA site with new rule:

I need to update the terms for RewardZone USA, noting the change above. The other change is their rewards system. Recently paid members are now receiving gift cards from RewardZone USA with zero balances on them. However, there is no need to panic! Please read my conversation with a member below...

Member:

11/27/2016 9:09PM

Hey me, Have you heard of Rewardzone now sending your card with a 0 balance and asking you to call them to load money on your card. They did this to my brother and he can't seem to get a hold of them.

My reply:

Never heard of this before. This must be something new that they're doing. What phone number(s) does your brother have for Rewardzone USA? Thanks 11/28/2016 7:33PM

Member:

Just the one above on his sheet. That's my guess too but wondered if you've heard anything about this. Thanks Me! FRI 9:20PM

My reply:

Hi Member, I'm guessing everything went alright with your brother's Visa gift card that he received from RewardZone USA? I bet they are doing this now since they always send the gift cards out in regular envelopes, and they don't want to risk somebody losing a $1,000.00 card in the mail! Would it be okay if I shared your brother's experience in my next DIY blog? I will leave him anonymous. Thanks. :) Quick question, the phone number on the Omnicard letter above is for RewardZone USA and not Omnicard, right? I ask because the number shows that it is for RewardZone USA and not Omnicard SAT 10:38AM

Member:

Yes you can share. As for the number above, that what his gift card came on for rewardzone. He had to call that to activate his card.
Quick follow up for you. Is there some serious issues with dealzingo now. I heard you may not have gotten paid along with some others. What do you know about it?
SAT 2:52PM

My reply:

Hi, Member! Thanks for the information. No, everything went well with my payment, and somebody contacted me about 5 days ago saying they received their check from Dealzingo. The problem has always been that they are slow to respond to e-mails, and they sometimes do not answer their phone. One guy told me they hung up on him when he asked if they were Dealzingo.

After so many weeks of trying to get a hold of someone via telephone/e-mail, they replied. They said they received my paperwork and would "begin processing me now"; I had my check five days later! A guy who had done his site a week before I did also got paid. I haven't received any negative reports on them yet.

An image of the letter this member's brother received:



I never liked how RewardZone USA would send out gift cards in a plain envelope with no tracking number. I like the thought of receiving a gift card with a zero balance-- never thought I would say that! lol... Seriously though, a thousand dollars is a LOT of money to lose in the mail; I am all for it!! Makes me wonder if someone's Visa gift card from RewardZone USA was lost or stolen. And if so, how did they handle the situation? Or perhaps they really wanted to offer their members some protection. While reading their Cardholder Terms and Conditions for the Visa gift cards, I saw something I did not like...

"5. UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS If you believe the Card has been lost or stolen or an unauthorized transaction has been made using the information from the Card without your permission, contact Customer Service IMMEDIATELY. We will ask for the Card number and other identifying details. We cannot assist you if you do not have the Card number. We reserve the right to investigate any claim you may make with respect to a lost or stolen Card or unauthorized transaction, and you agree to cooperate with such investigation. We may not be able to assist you if you do not contact us within 60 days of the unauthorized transaction. We will charge a fee of $5 as noted in the fee table above (subject to applicable law) to replace any lost/stolen Card, which will be deducted from the balance on the Card. A reissued Card may take up to 30 days to process."

The part that says, "We cannot assist you if you do not have the Card number." Major problem if the recipient was receiving the card from a company who did not have the card number themselves. What if the company just orders the gift cards in batches, like so many of them do, but do not have any of the card information? My guess though is, the sender would somehow have to get the gift card information, and/or report the lost or stolen card to the gift card web site themselves. I'd like to think that the gift card web site's customer support team could tell the sender if the recipient's gift card had been used, and give them the card's transaction history. While I understand Omnicard has to verify a recipient's gift card info, they should make it easier for those who are without a card number.
Some people cannot remember their gift card number off the top of their head, and if it got lost or stolen before ever reaching them, they certainly would not know it. Perhaps it could be found by order number, however, the sender would have to supply that information. Not the recipient.

Back to RewardZone USA. A member was having issues with one of their sites. Below is my correspondence with this member followed by RewardZone USA's response.

Member's e-mail:

Hey, Woz! How's the world treating ya?

I am finally able to do the below site you sent us awhile back, but it doesn't seem to be working properly and wondering if you can find out if the link is still valid. Everything is OK until you get to the offers page - each page on the way to the offers page shows the $1000 gift card at the top of each page, but when you arrive at the offers, the top of the page shows a $100 gift card.

If you can find out from RewardZone if this link is no good or what the problem could be, I would be very much appreciative.

Thanks a lot!

Member

My reply:

Hi Member,

Dealzingo paid me about a week and a half ago! I see that now RewardZone USA has upped the wait time on their sites. It used to be where you could do a site once per 12 months, now it is once every 24 months. Luckily for me, I have already waited over a year, but I still have to wait until next January before I can do another RewardZone USA site.

Anyway, let me look into your RewardZone USA site and I will get back to you. Is this the site you sign up for from the e-mail I sent out? :)

Member's reply:

Yes, the link is from the email you sent out on 1/13/16 - you should be able to see the email of yours I replied if you scroll down. But, if we now have to wait 24 months, I am probably not qualified, which might be the reason for the glitch. I did my last one in 9/15, so guess I gotta wait another 7 months?? Grrr! I sure hope Rewardszone will have a $1000 site come 9/17! Please do let me know what they say about the link.

Happy I can do a dealzingo site for $500, though, and the offers are better, too!

Thanks a lot ~ Member

My reply:

Hi Member,

RewardZone USA just now responded to your question. Below is their answer.

"Hi,

Thank you for pointing out that technical glitch. If you complete all of the necessary requirements you will receive a $1,000 Visa gift card.

Regards,
RewardZone USA"

I explained everything to them about the site showing that it was for a $1,000.00 until you reached the offer pages where it shows "$100.00 Visa gift card" at the top. So I guess what matters is what the front page (not offer pages) was showing, which was a $1,000.00 Visa gift card.

Have a good night~!

wozniack

I sometimes get confused when gift sites show two different reward amounts. When that happens, I just never do the site. Makes sense though for them to give you the reward on the front page, as that is what you initially signed up for.

Since my last blog, I received a $1,000.00 check from Dealzingo, and $600.00 in Visa gift cards from I-Deal! My dad also received his $1,000.00 Visa gift card from RewardZone USA. I'm interested in doing another I-Deal site, but I may wait and do one over the summer. Then in January, do RewardZone USA again. It would be nice to have another DIY company or two come along so we could have more rewards coming in. Only being able to do RewardZone USA once every two years is too long!

$1,000.00 Dealzingo check:



$600.00 in Visa gift cards from I-Deal:



Thanks for the rewards RewardZone USA, Dealzingo, and I-Deal!!

My earnings: $75.00 check for shopping habits study from SMARI; $95.00 check for tea study from Winkle Americas; $5.00 Wal-Mart eCard from ePoll; $93.33 in Paypal from Quickrewards.net; $15.00 settlement check; $30.00 in Target, and $25.00 in Wal-Mart gift cards from Toluna; $30.00 in amazon gift cards, $10.00 Wal-Mart eCard, and $10.00 in Domino's Pizza egiftcards from mycokerewards.com.



I miss our freebie forums. I knew quite a few people that I have now lost touch with from A4F. I wasn't really active on FiPG. I mainly read posts over there, but the people were nice there too. A4F was my home though. I arrived at A4F in 2007, a year after I got into freebies. It was an exciting time to be doing DIY and trading. Back then, we all were earning a lot of free money and physical gifts from all the old school DIY companies. I had wondered, even back then, what DIY companies would still be around, if any. 10 years later, I-Deal and Nuitech are still here. Isn't that great?! To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Nuitech; I just think its cool that they did not go away.

Anyway, I will work on our link list this week. Just have to remind myself, "No more Nuitech sites" to avoid any conflict with Nuitech. I do think their sites being "invitation only" is rather silly. I-Deal sites are all over ofree.net and everywhere else, and do they say anything? What are some of your thoughts on Nuitech's invitation only sites? Feel free to write in! I love conversing about these issues with my readers. We work through them together and help each other out. :)

Take care,

DIY carnival with new company revealed + payment report, RMM Media case reopened, RewardZone USA answers question, RewardZone USA and I-Deal payment reports, and much much more!

Ready for some summer fun?! Come on down to DIYfreebies' DIY carnival with new legit DIY company + payment report; new RewardZone USA information; new discovery in RMM Media, LLC case; RewardZone USA and I-Deal payment reports. It's a night of fun and excitement, get ready to ride...



This is our first blog in over a year, and I can't wait to pick up where we left off. It will be hard because I have to give myself a refresher course on company terms, as well as read through the last 3-4 posts which cover our investigations. A lot to catch up on but I can do it! I've got a lot to share with you all. The most exciting news is that there is a new legitimate DIY company, which I will now introduce you to. This company is Flex Marketing Group, LLC. and their gift program is Dealzingo. Read on to learn more...

I was searching through my old notes and found I had jotted down "Dealzingo" and "Flex Marketing Group" a while back. However, I wasn't entirely sure that Flex Marketing Group was connected to the nationalrewardsurveys.com (Dealzingo) sites. Someone, however, sent me an e-mail stating that they were paid on one of the nationalrewardsurveys.com sites. In that e-mail, they posted the company's name, address, and telephone number, which confirms that Flex Marketing Group, LLC. are the company behind the nationalrewardsurveys.com sites.

Anonymous person who wrote in:

"Good news! I just received a $1000 check from FLEX Marketing group, LLC with the memo on it: $1000 Visa Gift Card Cash Equivalent!
Flex Marketing Group LLC
Address: 1841 Broadway, Suite 600
New York, NY 10023
Phone: (212) 228-6340"

This makes me so happy! A new paying DIY company for us. Since most of you aren't familiar with this company, I have taken some screen shots of one of their sites so we can do a site review. We will start with the front page...

Gift site:





url: http://nationalrewardsurveys.com/?session_id=07f9de746a7c11e68de0825fc67c7d5d

Registration page:



Survey pages:



Starts off with the question above then goes into a series of more surveys...



View Offers pages:



The "View Offers" pages offer you things like the "free diabetes-friendly cookbook" shown above. You don't have to sign up for these offers, just view them to advance to the offer pages.

Offer page:





This is what the offer pages look like. There is a Bronze, Silver, and Gold offer page.

Status page:





The offer categories look like I-Deal except I-Deal's are Silver, Gold, and Platinum. There are also no "Registration," "Survey" and "View Offers" point requirements on I-Deal's sites.

Dealzingo gift site address:

P.O. Box #85919
New York, NY 10163-4668

Dealzingo phone number: 1-646-543-1795

Dealzingo e-mail address: dealzingocustomerservice@gmail.com

Flex Marketing Group address:

1841 Broadway, Suite 600
New York, NY 10023

Flex Marketing Group phone number: 212-228-6340

Flex Marketing Group: info@flexmg.com

web site: www.flexmg.com

I must point out that the P.O. Box #85919 address for Dealzingo is used by what seems like hundreds of sites. So either that P.O. Box is provided by a Registered Agent that Flex Marketing Group uses for their gift program, Dealzingo, or Flex Marketing Group is the Registered Agent for thousands of companies which offers mail forwarding. Remember we saw the same thing with Incorp Services, Inc. 3 years ago: http://wozniack.blogspot.com/2013/10/rewardzone-usa-proven-legit-payment.html

This company does respond to e-mails, though they can be slow. They have a working telephone number that at least goes to voicemail if nobody answers. That's one of the things I look for when doing a site. If somebody responds to my e-mails, then that means somebody can help me if a problem arises. If they offer phone support, that's even better! Another thing I look for is a status page so I can log in to my account. If there is no way to check my offer status, how will I know if I'm making progress? Let's say I-Deal had no status page link on their gift sites. How would I know if I needed to do any replacement offers unless I-Deal sent me some sort of alert via e-mail?
Before I do any site I register first, then log in through the status page so that I am locked in for sure. I don't sign up and start doing offers. With RewardZone USA and Dealzingo, your account becomes active when you sign up for your first offer. So I guess with RewardZone USA it's a little different for me since I do an offer with them upon sign up. I haven't done Dealzingo yet but I am planning on giving them a try as soon as I get time.

I knew RewardZone USA would accept a bill as proof of address, but I wanted to know if they would accept an invoice. Below is what I asked them in regards to the site my dad was working on.

My e-mail:

Hi,

I told him that he could only do one site per year.

As for proof of address, the problem is he just moved so it may take a little time for something to show up in the mail under his new address. Do you accept credit card or debit card applications as well? Or if he bought something online and had it shipped there, would you accept an invoice showing his name and new address? I figured that might be faster.

Thanks,

me"

I had no idea! So if your photo I.D. doesn't have your current address, you can just buy something online, have it shipped to your home, and send them the invoice. It works if you don't receive a lot of mail, or if you pay your bills online. Thought I'd pass that information along. Next we will talk about RMM Media, LLC. To refresh your memory, please read these posts first: "Rewardzone USA proven legit + payment reports..." Santa's workshop, Part 1. RMM Media, LLC warning..." DIYfreebies 7th annual anniversary blog..."

Let's look at the old Secretary of State file for RMM Media, LLC....



This old Secretary of State file shows that RMM Media, LLC is active. Now look at the new Secretary of State file...



The status on file now shows "Inactive - Administratively Dissolved (Tax)" with "08/09/2016" under Inactive Date. That means whoever owns this limited liability company didn't file an annual report or they failed to maintain a Wyoming Registered Agent. Under Standing - Tax of this report shows "Delinquent," which may mean they didn't pay the annual license tax. This LLC became inactive on August 8, 2016, and I am not seeing anymore RMM Media gift sites anywhere. I wonder if they are gone for good, or if they will reinstate their corporate status and put more sites out? In this case I guess time will tell. I just hope I can contact them if they return...

Since my last blog I have earned a $1,000.00 Visa gift card from RewardZone USA and a $500.00 Visa gift card from I-Deal. Proof pics are below...





Thanks for the gift cards RewardZone USA and I-Deal!!

My earnings: $85.00 in amazon codes, $50.00 Paypal, and a $5.00 Starbucks e-card from Media Insiders; $250.00 in Wal-Mart e-cards, and $30.00 in Target eGiftCards from Toluna; $150.00 in Paypal from SurveySpot; $129.95 in Paypal from Quickrewards.net; $275.00 in Visa gift cards from MyView; $50.00 Paypal from Mindspay; $75.00 check for a 1 1/2 hour-long moderated chat study from SMARI; $300.00 virtual Visa from Gongos Research; $60.00 amazon from C+R Research; $100.00 check for soda study; $150.00 virtual Visa for beverage diary study; $10.00 cash for marinade test.



This concludes our summer blog. I hope you all enjoyed it! I am, however, sorry for the time that elapsed since my last entry. Just had a lot going on personally and I took a break. I'm ready to dive back in to the freebie scene though~! I really cannot wait for the months ahead... September-January is my favorite time to do freebie sites. I like the extra spending money during the holiday season. My next site will be Dealzingo and possibly another I-Deal site until I can do RewardZone USA again in January.

I will work on our link list over the next few days. With a new month is approaching, I will update it throughout September as well. So please check back often for new links. Also, my inbox is full, and I am backed up on my e-mails. Please bear with me as I've got quite a few to answer. Thanks for stopping by. :)

Take care,

DIYfreebies 7th annual anniversary blog with new findings in RMM Media case and malware warning, Amped Media and Nuitech site discussion, RewardZone USA answers IP questions, and more...

Welcome to DIYfreebies' 7th annual anniversary blog! We're celebrating with these topics: New findings in the RMM Media case, name and address may have been found + awardhotspot.com malware warning; Amped Media and Nuitech sites discussed; RewardZone USA responds to IP questions. Get ready for a night of fun...



First off, I just want to say thank you to everyone who has stuck with this blog over the years and to the new readers. I am grateful for all the support I have received, and to those who have helped me. Since I took a year off, there was no anniversary blog last year. This year's anniversary blog arrived a little late; it has always been published on June 16th, the day it began. I feel that 2015 is a time of change for the freebie industry and this blog. A few years ago, I wondered when that "change" would set in, and that is now. But I'd rather things be as they are instead of this industry ending for good. I'm glad I got involved in freebies in 2006, and registered an account on anything4free.com in 2007. From there, I joined other DIY forums, and started studying DIY extensively. The idea for a blog didn't come to mind until June 13, 2008. 3 days later, 'DIYfreebies' was born, and DIY school was in "now in session": wozniack.blogspot.com/2008/06/school-is-now-in-session.html -- My I-Deal Rulesheet and early DIY lessons on I-Deal, Product Test Panel, Nuitech, Brandarama, and Adteractive were just the beginning to something really spectacular. As time went on, this blog grew beyond belief, giving me more contacts, and making it possible to reach out to so many more people. I was put on the map and companies and individuals knew right where to come. I wouldn't trade this experience for the world. It has been great!

New details have emerged in RMM Media case. A discussion between members of JLA Forums and a Google group have led to a possible name and address discovery. Please read the forum topic to begin.

"An obvious scam (see the non-Disney related ownership of that website below). Remember that anything you share or like on FB gives the owner of that content full access rights to see all of your personal info, just as a "friend" would. These scammers pay FB (and FB gladly accepts their money) to do these "ads" and the result is they get your personal info. They may not do anything with it except use it for target ads, or, they may sell it to hackers who will then try to use the info for more nefarious purposes. This is one reason I really don't do much on FB.

"Should be titled "How to waste endless inbox hours daily, deleting crap you were lured into a vague prize that only took 15 minutes to completely ruin your life."

My ISP offers a single use email address precisely for situations such as these. If your ISP makes single-use addresses available, set it up before plunging in here there be dragons. One of the perks of owning my own domain, disneywizard.co, is the ability to process infinite e-mail addresses (or ignore the catch-all dump bucket, or auto reply with "does not exist"), so RMMcrap@disnwz is close to what I used to 'enlist' in this draft. It doesn't show up in any important daily messaging but it all gets shunted to a dungeon. The fodder cheers my dragon the same "Wow, I got mail? Someone cares!" way I routinely fill the sales-lead slips at the movie theater, shopping mall and theme park entrance for the free car and free vacation. It's better than a pen-pal, where you may exchange one or two personal letters a month because it fills my snailmailbox daily with colorful attractive and even exotic variety of enticements. Perfect for the lonely child paper mache addict.

To qualify for the prize, you must complete two Silver offers and two Gold offers from among the options on the respective Silver and Gold offer pages and for prizes with a value of $100 or less, three Platinum offers, and for prizes with a value of more than $100, eight Platinum offers from among the options on the Platinum offer page within one calendar day (12:00:00 AM, EST to 11:59:59 PM, EST).

"Pam,

Before the Disney World sites when down, did you view them? I ask because I need confirmation that the company behind these sites is really RMM Media, LLC. If it is, then the name Arnold Rucker and the address holds some value.

I run a blog that warns people about online scams. There are some good companies, however, that do pay. I received 2 $500.00 Visa gift cards in the mail back in January, which you can read about here: DIYfreebies.com (my blog). But RMM Media, LLC. failed to pay a friend of mine, and some of their sites have malware; my Norton detected the malware after I clicked the "X" button on the download.exe file that popped up.

Anyway, if one of you could confirm this for me, I would greatly appreciate it. I will mention you in my blog if you'd like, and can even post a link you may have to help you out.

Thanks,

wozniack"

Sources for thread-- Google group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.arts.disney.parks/8_UrfH1MNeI - JLA FORUMS: http://www.jlaforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=221113793

The JLA Forums and Google group member DisneyWizard the Fantasmi copied the "ACTUAL SMALL PRINT," which are the front page requirements for RMM Media's gift sites. But I cannot confirm that he/she copied those requirements from a RMM Media, LLC. site without proof. They would have to tell me they copied the text from the front page for BESTJULYCOUPON.COM, the Disney World site. For all I know, DisneyWizard the Fantasmi could have copied those requirements off an RMM Media site other than BESTJULYCOUPON.COM; and what makes BESTJULYCOUPON.com so special is that its registered to an address under Arnold Rucker. The BESTJULYCOUPON.com Disney World site is gone or else I would have checked it myself. Below is the whois info containing the street name "18345 NW 925 St." and another address along with two e-mails for Arnold Rucker.

whois with 18345 NW 925 St. street name:



There are no results for the street address 18345 NW 925 St. Charlotte is a city in North Carolina, and "FG" is a province known as Foggia in the Apulia region of Italy. 27566 is fake according to a zip code search, and Curaçao is an island in the southern Caribbean Sea. Arnold Rucker, or whoever registered these domains, created a nonexistant street name and zip code, then added the Foggia province and Curaçao for good measure. gildathomas30@yahoo.com is a working e-mail address but I am not holding my breath on a response.

whois with another address:



There are no results for the street address 18523 NW 189 St. Charlotte, North Carolina of course is real, but the zip code is for Pine Level, North Carolina. I feel better about this address but both street names aren't showing up. The e-mail on file for this domain is jessikafugate801@yahoo.com, which gave me a mailer damon message. Please note that the domain for the first whois report is "premiungiftcards.com." That is, the word premium spelled with an 'N.' I almost missed that! I had visited "premiumgiftcards.com," which looked too professional. So I checked the whois report again and saw that the word premium was misspelled. None of the current domains under Arnold Rucker are DIY-oriented. So it will be hard for me to tie Arnold Rucker and the addresses to RMM Media, LLC. unless one of the JLA Forum and Google group members confirm that the RMM Media front page requirements were on the Disney World site.

There is a RMM Media link floating around that I wanted to warn you all about. I discovered it on an affiliate offer site while looking for RMM Media gift sites. A box appeared that looked similar to this...



The red "click here" button took me to a page with a "download.exe" file pop-up window. I clicked the "X" because I didn't want to download the file. After I did that, the page started blinking and my Norton anti-virus appeared; it detected malware. I ended up reformatting my computer due to issues I was having after visiting this site. If this happens to any of you, please check out this Virus Removal Guide: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/awardhotspot-com-removal/ -- This Virus Removal Guide was made especially for the awardhotspot.com pop-ups ads. Taken from this site: "awardhotspot.com is not a malicious domain itself, however cyber criminals are using malicious programs to display ads from this domain, and thus getting pay-per-click revenue." RMM Media may or may not be to blame for this. Who knows who these "criminals" are. It could be anyone. Avoid "awardhotspot.com" as someone was scammed on one of the RMM Media (awardhotspot.com) gift sites, and now there is adware associated with the domain. I hope this new information leads to something. Arnold Rucker, the e-mails and the two addresses are what I'm working with.

Now let's talk about RewardZone USA and Amped Media. A member sent me an e-mail inquiring about Amped Media, RewardZone USA, and Nuitech. One of their questions--perhaps the most important one about IPs--was answered by RewardZone USA. Their response can be found below as well as the information I provided on Amped Media and Nuitech.

Hi there..

From your blog site, you said to shoot you an email on this one..

If you could send that, that would be great..

Also..

How trustworthy is Amped Media and also Nuitecj/YR Central for their offers (which you had on your site as well.. I was hoping to do all 3 in time)..

Thanks again

My reply:

Hi there,

I have spoken directly to Amped Media's CEO Jonathan Gies in the past. He was always friendly and answered all my DIY-related questions. His company is not a scam as there are payment reports from several members. From what I understand, Nuitech own the domains and handles Fulfillment; and because of that, Amped Media links to them from their survey properties because they handle Fulfillment. But your reward is coming from Amped Media since they are offering the incentive, I hope that makes sense.

As for Nuitech, they have been around for years and are reputable, however, you may experience some difficulties. Below is my back and forth exchange with a member who did them last year just to give you an idea.

"Hey Wozniack, I regularly read your blog, when updated, & have followed the stories of many who write regarding their horrible issues w/payouts from these companies. Although I always wished I'd never have to go through what they did, alas, I am here now with my own issue w/Nuitech. I started their $1000 Visa promotion on x/xx/xx & completed all offers that day. However, it is now Jan. & I still have received nothing, even though my offers have been verified & they sent me the W9. W/the offers, they prolonged the process as long as they possibly could, asking for foolish things such as cancellation proof for offers I explicitly stated I canceled, "clearer" copies of bank statements, & often re-requesting evidence of me staying on offers past 1 month when I clearly faxed them earlier. This charade literally lasted 24 days from when they initially asked me for proof of completion, around xx/xx. After this, they provided me the link for the W9 & I signed & faxed. They said they never received the fax & asked me to resend it. Now, it has been 5 days since I refaxed the sheet, notarized, & since saying the same excuse repeatedly seems deeply suspicious, they simply have decided to not reply at all. This is infuriating & if they are doing this to me, who else may they be ringing around? I'm looking at legal options & plan to get my money one way or another."

"Hi member,

So they are still requesting your w9 even though you sent it again 6 days ago? Did they respond today or no? This is something that should have been taken care of 3 months ago, and you should have your gift in hand as their terms clearly state: "Upon our receipt of your properly completed Gift Redemption Voucher, it will take six (6) to eight (8) weeks to ship your Gift."

One member I had helped get approved by Nuitech back in October is still waiting on his gift. They sent him the following reply.

"On Monday, December 30, 2013 6:53 AM, Rewarding-promos Support wrote:
Dear member,

Thank you for your inquiry. I am sorry to hear you are dissatisfied with our promotions. As stated in previous emails, this process can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks, however, IN SOME EXTREME CASES IT MAY TAKE LONGER.

We apologize for any inconvenience and will notify you when the gift is ordered.

*** DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL. THIS MAILBOX IS NOT MONITORED *** Please use the contact form provided at our website if you have further questions.

Thank you,

Support"

Nuitech's terms and conditions state the following: "Upon our receipt of your properly completed Gift Redemption Voucher, it will take six (6) to eight (8) weeks to ship your Gift." I feel that the company should add an additional line to that sentence that states "In some rare cases a reward may take longer than 6 to 8 weeks," or "A reward may take longer than 6 to 8 weeks to ship depending on ::such and such reason inserted here::"

I've always found Nuitech to be a pain to deal with which is why I don't do them anymore. Contact them again and tell them you are re-faxing it, and if they still don't get it you may take it up with Florida's Attorney General. That may be enough to get them moving as they will not want to answer to the AG.

Please keep me posted on this issue.

Thanks,

wozniack"

"No, they requested my w9 again on 12/10/13 & they have not responded to me at all today. I think that is the next reasonable step because this can't continue.""

"I was paid by Nuitech, I got the check on Thursday."

Although they eventually paid her, she had to work for it. Nuitech always puts people through the wringer and they sometimes ignore e-mails. When DIY was more active back in 2007-2012, people were having so many issues with the company that I had to step in and deal with them directly and it was a nightmare. I could hardly keep up with the other companies I was dealing with for spending so much time on them. They no longer offer phone support, so you can only e-mail them. Their sites have 30/60-day cancellation limitations.

Taken from my Official T&C and DBA list:

You are required to keep all but two offers for 30/60 days. Be prepared to have ALL your “documentation”, i.e. confirmation e-mails, billing statements and/or invoices, but one of those per offer will do, to mail off. Also, all offers must be completed within 60 days upon sign up. Only one gift per DBA per person and/or household for one year after your registration date. Their offer categories are much like I-Deal’s offering a silver, gold, and platinum page per site. Please note that all of these steps, including mailing in your voucher(s), must be accomplished within 180 days of signing up. Once approved, your account will be updated accordingly, enabling you to print your “gift redemption voucher.” Upon your voucher’s arrival, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for shipment. You have to give Nuitech what they ask for and be patient with them, but they do pay out.

RewardZone USA site: http://www.electronicspromotionsusa.com/Flow.aspx

I think the site I did was for a $1,000.00 Wal-Mart gift card" and they sent me 2 $500.00 Visa gift cards. You will most likely get 2 $500.00 Visa gift cards as well.

If you have any questions, just let me know!

Thanks,

wozniack

The link for the $1000 seems to only take me to a $100 in products offer? Doesnt seem like the right one..

Thanks for the details on the other companies... interesting.. maybe ill stick with Amped Media as the second option then.. Nuitech sounds a bit more difficult, plus the part of keeping the services for up to 60 days.. not so grand i guess.. with Rewardzone i didnt go beyond 30 days.. it was easy on the first one i did..

That brings me to a question if you know.. Since I already did the $500 rewardzone, i know i cant do the next one, however my girl friend can.. i assume it has to be under her credit/debit card.. her home address (not mine).. and i'm assuming the IP matters, where its done on the PC.. I ran into an issue with Innovus.net once, as i did offers via my work machine and since the name on the bill at work didnt match me, they blocked the account.. wondering if Rewardzone is that strict.. i mean what if you did them from a coffee shop afterall.. the bill wont match up.. Just want to make sure its done right..

Thanks for the help,

member

member,

Sorry about the RewardZone USA site. It was working when I sent it to you but it now shows "expired." As for your question, I sent RewardZone USA an e-mail asking about IPs and locations. I didn't mention you or what you said, I just simply asked them about it. I'm interested in their response as I would like to know myself.

I will let you know how they respond, and will try to find you another site.

Thanks,

wozniack

Hi again,

RewardZone USA replied to my e-mail. You can find their response to my e-mail below.

My e-mail:

"Hi,

I had a question. Does the IP matter? When I go to do my next RewardZone USA site, must I do them from the same computer I used the first time? Or can I do them from a library, cyber cafe, anywhere else? I didn't know if my information (name, address) had to match the location's information I would be doing the offers from. Also, if I were to buy a new computer, must I inform your company beforehand? Because I will most likely acquire a new computer next year.

Thank you so much,

me"

Their reply:

"Hi me,

No, IP address does not matter. We will ask for proof of identity and address before we ship your prize, but you can purchase your prize from wherever you’d like, as long as it’s one year from the last time you earned one!

Thanks,

Maggie

RewardZone USA"

So IP does not matter. And since they request identity and address proof before shipping, everything must be in your girlfriend's name. Going to look for that RewardZone USA site now...

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks,

wozniack

Very interesting to know, saves some hassle.. thanks for that info.. I'm assuming this question is obvious.. but like the other regular freebie offer sites.. you cant use a prepaid visa card for doing the offers with Rewardzone and Amped? Also i cant recall, but is amped the same as rewardzone where you have to do the offers within 30 days to get the credit i assume?

Yeah i had previously been given a $1000 rewardzone link by "Member" from anything 4 free.. but their site went belly up and i cant access the private message she sent with the link back in april. Seems there arent that many good trading forums left except maybe the freebie exchange one.

Hi member,

You are not supposed to use a prepaid card on any DIY site.

I asked someone who did Amped Media about offers and they said: "For Amped Media they gave me the usual 60 days to complete offers. You could cancel 2 within 30 days. Nuitech handles the proofs and all of that so it is a typical Nuitech website to the person receiving the free gift. I say do it especially if the gift is $1000 or more and the offers provide the emails or invoices you need for proof. They also let you download apps on your phone now. You take a screenshot of your app, print and mail it as proof. If your phone cannot take a screenshot you download a screenshot app that will take it. This reduces the cost of your offers by a lot."

I logged into The Freebie Exchange the other night and I got this message: "Welcome, wozniack. You last visited: 07-17-2010 at 04:33 AM" -- Obviously has been a while since I was there!! I poked around a bit, and may drop in from time to time since it is active. What's your username on The Freebie Exchange?

Thanks,

wozniack

Ok thanks for the info.. for the first rewardzone i did under my name.. i think i cancelled all of the 10 offers within about 25 days.. they had also shipped the "gift card" by then as well though.. i had just assumed once i had notification of it being shipped that i was "safe". Ill try to hold out longer with the Amped one.

On freebie i believe my userid is rapidprofits.. i never got very far there.. wasnt sure what to do to be able to post a cash for ref post.. i think i had to do something with the banks, which i thought i did but it never allowed me to post..

On anything4free i am (or more likely was, since its about dead) username

I want to get back into a forum somewhere.. i have about 4 train sites i'd like to finish off in addition to doing 1-3 more of these DIY..

curious though.. where does everyone find the links for these DIY offers? Is it only word of mouth, as i've never really found them except for the ones you have on your blog :)

Word of mouth or ofree.net. But the best places are through affiliate sites like offervault.com. :)) Is it okay if I share our e-mails in my next blog as they answer our RewardZone USA IP questions. I will make you anonymous and omit parts of our e-mails. There are a few sentences that I feel should be removed for our protection.

RewardZone USA said IPs don't matter. So you can do your site from any location. As for Nuitech, my exchange with an anonymous member above shows just how difficult the company can be. While not everyone has had that experience, many have. It takes patience when dealing with Nuitech's processing proceedures. Please remember that Nuitech owns Amped Media's domains and handles Fulfillment. That is why their rules are the same as Nuitech. Since I never did a write up on Amped Media's terms and conditions, I have written one for your review. Please see below.

Amped Media-- You are required to keep all but two offers for 30 days. All offers must be completed within 60 days upon sign up. Only one gift per DBA per person and/or household for one year after your registration date. For phone app offers, take a screenshot of your app, print and mail it as proof. If your phone cannot take a screenshot, download a screenshot app that will take it. Please note that all of these steps, including mailing in your voucher(s), must be accomplished within 180 days of signing up. Once approved, your account will be updated accordingly, enabling you to print your “gift redemption voucher.” Upon your voucher’s arrival, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for shipment. Nuitech handles processing and fulfillment for Amped Media's gift program.

As mentioned in Amped Media's write up, Amped Media, as well as Nuitech, have phone app offers. These offers are visible by visiting your account page from your phone. Once you have signed up for an app offer(s), you have to take screen shots of the app within the app and print the screen shot as documentation of those offer(s). Next, print your screen shot(s) and mail them in as proof. If your phone cannot take a screen shot, download a screen shot app that will. Thank you, stickerz (kinneylamb), for the information on the phone app offers. That was news to me!

My earnings: $55.00 in Paypal, $25.00 Visa gift card, $25.00 amazon gift card, and $75.00 in Wal-Mart gift cards from MyView; $10.00 CVS e-certificate, $5.00 Brinker restaurant card, $15.00 amazon code from Media Insiders; $45.00 in Target eGiftCards, $10.00 Brinker restaurant card, $25.00 amazon code, and $100.00 in Wal-Mart e-cards from Toluna; $16.50 in amazon codes, and $99.50 in Paypal from SurveySpot; $68.50 in amazon codes, and $175.90 in Paypal from Opinion Outpost.

Has anyone tried the Smart Panel app? Its a mobile app that pays you to share experiences about how you use the internet. You get $15.00 just for downloading the mobile app and keeping it installed for one week. Sounds good to me! I will check it out when I have time. I hope you guys enjoyed the anniversary blog. I'm happy it has lasted this long, and hope it continues to do well. It has been a great ride. If I find anymore links I will add them here. Please check back often. This will be the last blog I write until Christmas. I'm taking a break to pursue other hobbies and interests, but that won't stop me from checking out DIY sites and answering e-mails. By then, there should be new material and, hopefully, sites for us. In the meantime, you may contact me at diyfreebies@gmail.com

Take care,

Springtime blog with 2015 San Francisco Ad-tech convention, blog and freebie industry discussion, more on the The Popcorn Factory + RewardZone USA payment, springtime link list, and more...

Springtime blog with 2015 Ad-tech convention in San Francisco; newgiftdepot.com/topbrandgifts.com investigation still ongoing; more interaction with The Popcorn Factory and $25.00 gift certificate; RewardZone USA payment; blog discussion and the future of DIY and referral-based sites; springtime link list. Get out your planting gloves...



No new developments in the newgiftdepot.com/topbrandgifts.com case but it is still ongoing. Freebie Direct, the name which may be in connection with their gift sites, remains of interest and this mystery company is being closely monitored. My written letter to this company was returned, which is not good since there is no other mode of communication. Please read December's entry to see where we left off with newgiftdepot.com/topbrandgifts.com: Wintry mix, Part 1... -- I need something to go on that will get me closer to revealing their identity. I need a clue, just something.

While on the subject of DIY, I'd like to discuss this industry's future as well as talk about our blog. This is a dreaded subject, but it really should be addressed now rather than later. From my observation, the freebie world has slowed down quite a bit. FiPG hasn't been around for a very long time and anything4free.com, A4F's forum site, has errors and not much trading happens there anymore. Trainn are still productive these days but let's face it, trading is not what it used to be. Remember how active it was in 2009? Something happened within the last 2 years that changed everything. Through social media and private conversations, people have said they just don't have the time for trading and DIY or even the internet anymore. Which I fully understand as I have found it difficult to make time for it myself. Below is my exchange with Melmarie regarding the A4F site issue and forum management.

My exchange with Melmarie:

"Hi Mel,

How long has the site been experiencing technical difficulties? Do you know when it will get fixed? Also, where are all the other mods? Twon is still helping out but I noticed that Eric's mod status was gone. I know he has been in school, so I figured that might have something to do with it. It seems that as we get older we get busier. I haven't posted my blog for months now due to personal issues that sprung up now I have to move our blog over to somewhere else before the data is erased: http://www.diyfreebies.com/current-situation/ - It seems like one thing after another. =T

Anyway, if there is anything I can do to help until you guys out just let me know. At least until the site is running smoothly. Is there much freebie trading going on? I-Deal have had some good sites. Mezianne sent me a link but it had a referral by the time I got around to it! So I am looking for more sites. That's something else... I can't post in the DIY section. Is it possibly for us to see if someone like Wes could help?

Sorry in advance for asking so many questions. Its just been a while since I have been active on the forum and things are so different now.

Thanks,

wozniack"

Melmarie's reply:

"Hey Wozniack,

It has been experiencing problems for a long time. Eric stopped doing A4F because of real life getting in the way. I completely understand that! There are many things wrong with the forum, but fixing them might break it more. I don't know coding enough to figure it out. Eric said some suggestions, but they didn't work. :( Wes thinks that it is so outdated that things with break more with updates. :(

I need a new DIY site. I haven't done a freebie in forever!

Mel"

My reply:

"Hi there,

If I knew how I would go in and fix it but, like you, coding is not my area of expertise. Rather than fix it, I wonder if we should start fresh with a new forum, have Wes back up only the content (threads, blogs, etc.), then upload everything to the new forum. It can be done because on another forum I modded, the entire site crashed, but the conversations were saved on a hdd copy and the site's admin uploaded it to the new forum. I think the admin had to pay for the hard copy though. That's just a thought.

I'll let you know if I find any non-referral I-Deal sites. Its been a while for me, too... I'm getting the DIY itch!! haha :)

Thanks,

wozniack"

Melmarie's reply:

"Thanks for the thoughts! I definitely think it could work too.

Let me know if you find anything. I want something free! LOL

Mel"

If anybody has any ideas for the forum please let me know! I would love to see A4F back on track again. As for our blog, there are some concerns. One being a lack of writing material. Years ago, there was so much to research that I was juggling up to 3 and 4 companies at once! Now, I find myself investigating only one company with no good leads. Investigations and company correspondence make up for a large portion of this blog. I can write about marketing conventions and whatnot but the blogs will be shorter. I have written short blogs in the past that were successful. As long as there is content to put with our link list it should not matter. My other concern is the timespan between each blog. After taking a year off, writing proved difficult and I had to get back in "DIY mode." That meant going back over terms and researching new findings. I would be lying if I said I hadn't investigated during my time off! *wink* I had to because I communicated with companies and helped members via e-mail. Probably a good thing so I wasn't completely in the dark when I returned. Writing is a gradual process but its getting better; my fluidity is slowly coming back.

I will hire a ghostwriter if my life ever interrupts this blog. At times, I seriously considered it due to health issues and there always being a conflict in my schedule. I do not want this blog to end after it's 7-year run. We need a place for DIY and that is DIYfreebies.com -- DIY is still active with I-Deal, RewardZone USA, Nuitech, and Amped Media paying out. Check out my $1,000.00 payment from RewardZone USA below!

My timeline with RewardZone USA:

Nov 27, 2014-- Registered and did my offers in one sitting. Only 5 out of 10 instantly credited, meaning I would have to get manual credit.

Dec 3, 2014-- Did 2 make up offers. 1 credited, bringing my total to 6. I sent them all 4 confirmations.

Dec 4, 2014-- They approved my order confirmations, and e-mailed me my claim form the same day.

Dec 8, 2014-- My renewed I.D. arrived in the mail, and I sent back my forms and photo I.D. copy after midnight.

Dec 9, 2014-- RewardZone USA received my paperwork and photo I.D. scan and told me to wait 2-4 weeks for my reward.

Jan 9, 2015 -- Happy New Year to me!! My gift cards arrived in the mail! So happy.

I have to thank margarita and Al from A4F for their help. I had never done RewardZone USA before and they guided me through the process. Thanks guys. Also, another member just received his $1,000.00 profit from RewardZone USA and he has allowed me to share his experience below.

Hi member,

Did you post on diyfreebies.com (Blogspot), or was it on anything4free.com? I ask because I cannot find your comment. It has been almost a decade for me as well. Hard to believe it has been that long. I am in the process of writing this month's blog; there was a delay in posting this month but it should be out soon. Once I have completed the writing process, I will start my link hunt. If I find any good I-Deal sites I will let you know.
I know you can only do one gift per year with RewardZone USA. So I have to wait until November to do them again. I received two $500.00 Visas from them on January 9th! I hadn't done a DIY in a couple years, so imagine my excitement. :)) Did you receive your $1,000.00 profit from them today? Congrats!! Is it OK by you if I post about you getting paid by RewardZone USA? I will be posting my proof pic and timeline for RewardZone USA in my blog and would like to share your experience as well. :)

Thanks,

Hey woz,

I haven't posted yet on your website, but I'll get around to it soon, it's been a busy week. And yup, I received the $1,000 late last week I believe, it only took around 4 weeks start to finish! Amazing timeline considering the last DIY I did was Brandarama I believe, haha.

I found a few other links online when I was searching (before I came across your site), so when I get home and dig through them I'll shoot some over to you, and post them on the forum, in case any of them are legit.

And yeah, feel free to post about me receiving the reward! If only they allowed more than 1 reward per year...haha, oh well.

member"

Congrats to this member on their reward! So nice when payment reports come in. Thanks for letting me share that with everyone. :)

I thought I was through with The Popcorn Factory but apparently not, haha... The $6.00 refund they were supposed to give me never showed up on my card. I messaged them several times about the refund, but it all worked out and with a surprise gift in the end! See below.

My first message:

Your question is below and was sent to us on 11/24/14 at 4:15:06 PM:

Hi,

My order for the Fall Colors Sampler was only supposed to be $11.50 as per the sale price. Before I submitted my order, it showed $11.50 and my order confirmation shows $11.50. But my bank statement shows I've been charged $17.50. Its only a difference of six dollars, but I hate being misled by thinking I'm getting something at an amazing price and then be charged more for it later.

I have included my original order confirmation for your review. I wanted to bring this to your attention so you could possibly prevent this from happening again to other customers.

Thanks,

me

Their reply:

Dear me,

Thank you for contacting us.

Please accept our apologies for the error made on this order. Upon review of your account, I do show a total charge of $17.50 for your order. I have refunded the difference, bringing the total back down to $11.50 to your card, which you will see on your next credit card statement. Again, please accept our apologies for this error.

Dear me,

Thank you for contacting us.

First of all, I'd like to sincerely apologize for your long wait for your refund. I have taken quite some time reviewing your order and its history so we can get you taken care of. There seems to have been an error in processing your refund on our end, not yours. I've reprocessed it and even had my manager check to make sure it was done correctly since you've been waiting so long. I am sorry to say it may take 7-10 business days from today's date to reflect on your statement. I wish I could make it faster for you but I appreciate your patience! Because you've been so patient and because of how sorry I am it's taken us so long, I am issuing a $25.00 gift certificate to be sent to your address. This may take 10-14 business days to get there but it is issued and just waiting to be processed and sent. Our customers satisfaction truly is very important to us here at The Popcorn Factory and again, I am sorry for any inconvenience you may have been caused.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at the address listed below.

Sincerely,

Jessica,

Thank you so much for assisting me with this issue. I appreciate your help and the $25.00 gift certificate very much.

I wish you and The Popcorn Factory a wonderful holiday...

Thanks!

I'm a patient person, so I did not mind waiting for a 6 dollar refund, lol. I kept pressing them though because I knew something was wrong, and I didn't think it was on my end. Not only did I get my refund, they gave me a $25.00 gift certificate for the wait!! Talk about excellent customer service. They are just as professional over the phone as they are through e-mail, too. I am still enjoying the popcorn; the tins don't expire for about 8 months;and have an extra tin I need to give away. I may use the $25.00 certificate on their after Easter sale through their other retailer. They're affiliated with 5 stores and I think I can use the certificate at any of them. If you are ever in need of a gift, please check this company out. They've been in business since 1979, and sell the best popcorn and candy. Thanks again, Popcorn Factory...

This concludes March's entry. We covered a lot in this blog, so I'm happy with it. I'm excited for another year of DIY sites and surveys. Always fun to receive that check or gift card in the mail! Love this time of year when springtime rolls around. Looking forward to Easter as well. Although I'm too old for egg hunting, I still enjoy the candy, the smell of flowers in bloom and sunny weather. It makes me smile. What do you like about spring? :) I'll have our springtime link list done by midweek. I have been swamped with work, but my next order of business is getting that done.
