americanprizepanel.com Program Rules:
americanprizepanel.com URL and bar content at the top of the Program Rules page:
After finding complimentarygiftcards.com in my extensive research, I visited the site and the link became "www.storefeedbackrewards.com." There may be more domains linking to the same site. complimentarygiftcards.com led me in the direction of the company behind americanprizepanel.com. And guess what? It isn't Consumers Reward Solutions. CRS recently adopted a 30-day cancellation limitation, and I noticed that americanprizepanel.com wasn't updated to reflect that change. We'll go into the CRS cancellation limitation later but I wanted to point that out.
complimentarygiftcards.com 120-day rule:
The bottom of the page reads, "All program requirements must be completed within 120 days of the date of registration."
gift page: http://ikeagiftcard.giftcertificatedelivery.com/form/iframe/10885/6841/?&ref=10885
CRS' 180-day rule:
In the gift rules, under #3 Sponsor Offers, reads, "In order to remain eligible for your gift, you must complete all of the sponsor offers that require you to sample and purchase products of interest within 180 days of signing up for our service."
Gift Rules url: http://track.freezinger.com/Rules.aspx?p=9f4458b54b8d4ad998fdd29886b4eaf7
complimentarygiftcards.com URL and bar content at the top of the Program Rules page:
Notice the difference? complimentarygiftcards.com clearly states "All program requirements must be completed within 120 days of the date of registration" whereas CRS gives members 180 days, which makes me believe that CRS are not running these sites. And again, the Program Rules URL and tab content confirm a link connection with the following: bar content: AmericanPrizePanel.com – Program Rules; link bar: http://www.complimentarygiftcards.com/page/programRules.
See that small image of the Wal-Mart gift card site? Isn't that similar to the americanprizepanel.com site we found? Well, they must be connected if complimentarygiftcards.com pointed to "www.storefeedbackrewards.com" which is tied into americanprizepanel.com. The whois information below the image gives the location of the company, so we know it is not Consumers Reward Solutions. Read the write up on CoverClicks, LLC. and CEO Josh Blumenfeld to learn about the company. americanprizepanel.com is under the management of WinHundred, LLC. Please commit that to memory as that is now what we'll call them.
Fresh out of college in 2001, Joshua Blumenfeld embarked upon CoverClicks, LLC., making it the world leader in the internet marketing and lead generation industry. The company's revenues propagated largely by 1250% under Mr. Blumenfeld's leadership. Once a small-scale shop originating in the Bronx, now a corporate giant serving America's heavyweight industrialists and direct marketing companies such as, BMG, Ford Motors, Publisher's Clearing House, Advertising.com, Traffix, Inc., Galt Media, Adteractive, and Jackpot.com. Coverclicks welcomed its first sweepstakes site WinHundred.com, which is WinHundred, LLC. Joshua is also CEO of AffiliateNetwork.com Marketing, LLC., the internet's primitive affiliate network. AffiliateNetwork.com is the market leader in online media distribution for advertisers, publishers and affiliates. Prior to these ventures, Joshua documented the lives of five students from the University of Wisconsin on a reality-based web site known as Starfields.com. He studied Business Management and Entrepreneurship, and earned his BBA in 2001 from the University of Wisconsin. And he rose to the top as a congressional staffer for U.S Senator Chris Dodd.
We know their company, let's get to know their sites. The requirements, and lack of a contact and status page as discussed in our last blog, is what bothers me the most. Their IKEA site looks more reliable compared to what I am about to show you. I guess it is the overall look and feel as some buttons are missing. But the content should be examined because it doesn't add up.
Winhundred site examinations...
gift site: http://join1.winhundred.com/forms2/landing_pages/maxmoolah/zip_registermain_call.php?prize=40GB+iPod+Photo&amount=500&affil=ptph&wid=ptph&source=ptph&sid=NOPOP&ref=12208
"You must earn at least $500 with ConsumerSurveyGroup.com before you can receive a 40GB iPod Photo. ConsumerSurveyGroup.com will mail the 40GB iPod Photo to you within a reasonable time after you have accumulated at least $500 U.S. currency in your account. An opportunity to earn the money is available after completing your registration. You have not won a prize. This is not a sweepstakes."
Why is there a $500.00 earn limit? They clearly stated it isn't a sweepstakes, so it isn't that. Do they mean that if a member satisfies the required amount of offers that they have reached $500.00?
gift site: http://join1.winhundred.com/forms/registermainlaptop.php?wid=mlap&affil=mlap
"†You must earn at least $800 with MaxMoolah before you can receive a Laptop Computer. MaxMoolah will mail a cash prize to you within a reasonable time after you have accumulated the minimum dollar amount in your MaxMoolah account and claim your cash gift per the terms and conditions."
Another earn limit. I understand it now, but why is the IKEA site we looked at totally different from these? Normally a company applies a list of the same rules for each and every gift.
gift site: http://join1.winhundred.com/forms/zip_registermainlaptop.php
"You must earn at least $ with ConsumerSurveyGroup.com before you can receive a . ConsumerSurveyGroup.com will mail or PayPal to you to purchase the to you within a reasonable time after you have accumulated at least $ in U.S. currency in your account."
Way more confusion. First of all, there is no gift card amount, lol. Secondly, Paypal is involved?? I don't even know what they're asking due to the missing words in both sentences. After accumulating the required amount of funds, are they saying they will send us cash or Paypal for purchasing the offers? Just a guess. I think the corrections haven't been made yet on this site. We should hold off on Winhundred until we can get in touch with them, and there need to be payment reports.
CRS now displays a cancellation limitation on all their sites. This change went into effect March 16th, however, members who registered before the effective date weren't bound to the 30-day rule. Below is what a member asked Dave regarding the cancellation limitation.
Hi, I noticed that you updated your gift rules today, March 16th, and added a
cancellation limitation. I was just making sure that any sites signed up for
prior to today follow the old gift rules as the new ones say
they are effective on 3/16. Thanks in advance.
You are correct.
I am finding out for you about the other ones.
I will let you know once I know.
His words, "I am finding out for you about the other ones" are obscure; shouldn't ALL the sites be that way if you signed up prior to March 16th? It does sound like he means that members are exempt from the new rule since he said, "You are correct", however. I will ask this member if Dave ever got back to him.
Now for more questions and answers...
Dave told a member that we CAN do more than one site annually provided the gifts were different. I will copy and paste his responses to him below.
I'm interested in doing another offer. I completed my stuff last year and just got paid a few weeks ago. Can I do another offer? I was told I could as long ad it was a different site. Can u confirm that? Also, can u give me some links to tour other sites? Thanks.
Dave, "Hi member,
You can do another site as long as it is different than the one you already got paid paid on.
I have no access to the links from here. Sorry.
Does that just mean I can't do consumer reward solutions? But maybe I can do free gift group direct? Thanks for your help.
Yes, That is correct.
Do u also handle direct survey solutions (freezinger.com)? It looks like one of your sites?
Yes, That is one of mine.
This same member had a wonderful CRS experience that he allowed me to share with you all...

Just want to let you know, I finally cashed in on the offer and received my gift from CRS. They seemed to follow the same protocol as some others had mentioned. Once I was cleared for the gift and signed the waiver, I was told to wait 8-10 weeks. When I got about a week out I was told that he was having trouble getting the gift card but would send me a $1000 check. I’m happy to say that he finally did, I cashed it and it finally cleared. Just thought you would want to know. Thanks for all the help.

That's great news!! I love hearing that. I received my check for 3 grand on February 28th. I was lucky to be able to do a bigger site before they tore it down. Would you mind if I shared your good news in next month's blog? I promise to change your name to "anonymous" for your protection and privacy. I'm so glad there is a happy ending.
Thanks for telling me, and enjoy your profit!

Absolutely! Especially if it will help some others. Three grand? That’s crazy. I’m going to get one of those sites you sent me about getting an ipad next. Hope there’s no problems there. You have any other tips on some good sites? Some pretty good rewards and reputable sites? Thanks.
There was some concern about CRS lowballing members, and if you haven't heard already, it is not true. Below is the e-mail a member sent me which set off the alarm.
Member, "From: Svc Acct

our supplier is telling us that your gift is on back order. (Not sure how long?)
I can replace your gift with a check in the amount of $1500.00 USD and you can use for anything you like.
The check will be a bank draft and will send it registered mail the third week of March.
Let me know.
It appears everything is alright, and the member will be receiving her gift for the full amount of $3,000.00. I told her to tell Dave that $1,500.00 wouldn't cover the cost of two Macbooks, and that she was mislead since they weren't giving her the advertised gift amount.
Her reply to me explaining what happened, and she copied and pasted Dave's reply:
"Hi, I've included the info from my latest email from dave. I filled out a new release form and hope to have a reply today. I thought it was strange he asked why I didn't tell him it was the 2 macbook offers in jan. I assume he knows that. Hopefully i'll get the full 3000 as he stated ! Thanks so much, member
Why wouldn't you let me know that way back on Jan 05/11?
Here is the correct form. Can you fill out and resend back to me?
I will double the amount for you. $3000.00 USD"
My check cleared, btw. No problems at all. Make sure you guys are at home because your check is signature required. I might do one of the sites I tested since I locked them in before March 16th. I have 180 days for each gift but I need to do them asap so there are no issues in case they remove them. Thanks to the anonymous members for your willingness to help others with your correspondence with Dave. :)
Caivis has new domains: www.prize1online.net - www.prize1online.com
The .net is a gift site that is identical to prizevenue:
The .com is a survey site:
Notice anything unusual? prizeavenue and prizeone both have promo boxes. Do promo codes really exist for gift sites? Hm. Not a major discovery, I just felt like mentioning prizeone in case no one had seen it.
A member had questions about Ifficient, so I asked them for him/her. Below are the questions and answers!
member, "So I saw that ifficient limits gifts to one per household per year - but is this per site or just w/anything related to ifficient period? Does ifficient have different dba's similar to nuitech that could each be completed independently? The terms don't seem to specify; but they definitely specify different sites/titles governing the various offers - for example WorldRewardsNow.com or GiftCertificateDelivery.com. Do these all fall under that 1 yr umbrella since each is governed in common by ifficient?"
Ifficient customer support, "On Thu, Mar 3, 2011 at 6:15 PM, Fulfillment
The limit is one gift per household for both GOR and WorldRewardsNow.com. We do not operate giftcertificatedelivery.com.
Their second respond to me (I sent two messages)...
There is a limit of one gift per year per household. The availability of the cards will dictate if a card or cash card will be shipped. Either way the value will be consistent with the advertised amount.
Please let me know if there are anymore questions about Ifficient. I will pass them along.
More free money in the mail! I worked out a crediting problem with support regarding a purchase in September, and MyPoints rewarded me 33,000 points. I cashed out on two Wal-Mart gift cards for $35.00, and $50.00 to Target. Next month I am going for $200.00 to Sears, and should have enough for $50.00 in amazon. Point incentive programs are worth it if you shop online. My bank also has a "double rewards" program, so each purchase is 2 points per dollar. Your points expire in 3 years, but the numbers can soar within that time period. I'm close to earning free gift cards on Memolink, too. I've been a Memolink member since 2002, and they're my favorite points program. If anyone wants my MyPoints or Memolink referral link, just ask and I will send it right over. The rewards are great!

We've given americanprizepanel.com a name-- WinHundred. I wanted that out there before they were mixed up with CRS, Nuitech, I-Deal or some other company. My next step is finding one of the CRS sites I locked in before March 16th. If I can do one more with no strings attached that would be super. I'm backtracking to find out which sites I registered for as I cannot remember. The link list will be up within the next few days. I advise everyone to NOT do any of the Acquisis sites in my old entries as they aren't trustworthy. A few people have which is why I am restating this. I-Deal, Nuitech, Consumer Gain, and even CRS are safe right now, so do them instead. I'm working round-the-clock to catch up on my messages, so please be patient as I have e-mails, forum PMs, two blogs, and site comments to answer. Have a happy and blessed Easter. See you next month.
