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.

Is that part of their terms?

wozniack said...

As for the terms, this is what it says: "You also cannot use a link to an RZU Website provided by another person or one obtained outside of our normal marketing channels such as a YouTube video or gaming site or reuse a link that you previously used to claim an Incentive."

While they did not specifically say "blog," that still applies to me as I am the "another person" they are speaking of. I don't know how long they have had this rule; but DIY companies used to not care, or even notice the links in the old days. I only see this becoming more of a problem if other DIY companies adopt the same rule.
Another problem with the link list is a lack of good deals to post. We had great deals years ago but nothing that good to post on the blog. Sure we have the $1,000.00 RewardZone USA and Dealzingo sites, but those can be find on the web if you look hard enough. I didn't see anything about not registering for sites on blogs in Dealzingo's terms, though that doesn't mean they allow it. However, the fact that it is not in their terms may give someone some leverage if the company fights them on it.

Looks like RewardZone USA has given us 20 instead of 30 days to do our offers. And they have added the part about $0.00 balances on gift cards in their terms as well.

Wozniack,

If you know of any freebie sites where DIY rewards are advertised, could you let us have the freebie site name so we could discover it on our own? That way, you avoid posting direct URLs to DIY sites and we can still do the promos.

wozniack said...

Sorry for the delayed response, I should have checked the comments section sooner!

The sites I use are ofree.net and affiliate marketing sites like offervault.com and odigger.com. Below are some instructions.

On the ofree.net site, click "Free Stuff" then click "Free Gift Cards" to pull up the gift sites. On offervault.com and odigger.com, type "500 Visa gift card" or "1000 Visa gift card" to pull up gift sites. There are already gift sites on offervault.com's front page, but searching for "500 Visa gift card" or "1000 Visa gift card" in the search bar will generate results for just gift cards without a bunch of junk sites mixed in (trial offers, loan sites, misc. advertisements, etc.).

I hope that helps! If anyone has any other questions regarding these sites, please let me know. :)

Hi Woz,

I've been pretty much a lurker since the old Brandarama days. I will report that I received the $500 Visa Giftcard from RewardZone in April. Are you still able to help identify which sites are legit? Forgive my asking this if you've already answered it else where. And just know you blog has and IS a resource for lurkers (is that a word) like myself๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‰.

wozniack said...

Hi there. I'm happy you received your $500.00 Visa gift card from RewardZone! Yes, I can help identify which sites are legit. You may ask me here, or send me an e-mail anytime to: diyfreebies@gmail.com.

Wozniack, where can we find Amped Media promo sites? Are they still operating. I found a RZU through the Cool Savings site and qualified for $1,000.

dfrugal said...

Wozniak, is RewardZoneUSA also AmpedMedia? How do we organically find the Nuitech sites?

wozniack said...

dfrugal,

Amped Media sites can be found on ofree.net by going to "Free Stuff" and then clicking "Free Gift Cards." Click on the sites that promote a $500.00 gift card until you find one; all Amped Media sites are for $500.00 profit. When you get to an Amped Media site, you will notice a gold seal at the bottom. That is how I quickly distinguish an Amped Media site from any other DIY site. I also look to see if there's a Florida address in the policy.

You can also search for Amped Media sites on affiliate sites like odigger.com and offervault.com. Just type in "$500.00 gift card" and look through the results to see if an Amped Media site pops up. The last time I checked they were still operating, btw.

RewardZone USA is not Amped Media. Both are separate companies. However, Nuitech handles Fulfillment for Amped Media.

As for Nuitech, try searching for Nuitech sites the same way you did on Cool Savings as Nuitech used to/still has ties to the Cool Savings site. Also, search for Nuitech sites on ofree.net and the affiliate sites I mentioned above.

Hi Woz,

Thanks for the update. No if I'm reading this right, there are indeed several of the Amped Media sites, however there seems to be no "Check Status" link. How do you check your status on these sites? Thanks again for taking the time to sort us out.

dfrugal said...

The thing I noticed with the Amped Media sites is their is no city and state on the registration form. You type in your address and it pulls it up a list of matching streets with different city state and zip codes. When I selected the street address with my matching city state and zip and went through all the surveys, the address confirmation page showed a completely different city, state and Zip.

wozniack said...

JarJarBinky,

You're right. There is no check status link. I tested out an Amped Media site just now and found that the best way is just to contact them. First, register for the Amped Media site and take all the surveys. Once you make it to the offer page, on the left side is an envelope icon that will produce a pop-up message window. Click on it.

Then send them a message stating that you just registered for their promotion and you need a direct link to your status page. They should be able to provide you with a link to log in so you can start doing your offers and track your progress as you go.

I see that you have written me an e-mail. :) I will reply with a screen shot I just took of the test page as well as answer your other questions. I may have the direct e-mail for Amped Media. If I find it I will send it to you, though I suggest contacting them first via the web site.

Thanks,

wozniack

dfrugal,

That happened to me too! It showed an incorrect city, state, and zip. Since it says, "You will have a chance to confirm your address prior to shipping," you can either do the site and try changing it before it ships, or contact support via the envelope icon on the left side of the page. Just tell them it entered in an incorrect address and you need it changed before you start the site.

Thanks,

wozniack
