SO WHAT’S MEDIADOLLARZ THEN?
MediaDollarz is an international program – yay! – international! – well…. not quite. If you live in the US, UK, CA, AU, NZ, you can join as a user – all other countries can be promoters (and earn on their affiliate program, I guess. I can’t seem to see any other information about that.)
Anyway, as a user, you get paid to shop, do surveys and refer people to join the program. It does say ‘daily payout for free offers’, but please read below as, from what I understand, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
The registration form was mad-easy to fill in. This ye here buxom maiden was up and running within 10mins!
SO I LOGGED IN AND…
Upon logging in, I found a couple messages in my inbox. Oh goody. Activity!
Oh dear, one in particular was ‘an apology about a delay in some payments’. Oh no, not another Bloggerwave, PLEASE. GOD. NO.
MediaDollarz’ explanation?: the delay in payments were apparently due to ‘extremely high levels of fraud occurring this month in incentivesd and freebie industry’, which meant that ‘some advertisers has holded our payment for two weeks or so.’
Yes. I know. Their spelling. Has ‘holded’?
NO MORE DAILY PAYMENTS? OH DARN 🙁
MediaDollarz used to offer immediate Paypal payments for any free offers you did regardless of the amount. But in their effort to deal with people taking the piss (i.e, fraudsters), they’ve had to change their payment frequency from daily to monthly. (You also have to verify your phone number before you can get a payout).
Why they’ve still got ‘free daily payments’ displayed on their site, I don’t know, but if I am to understand one of the emails they sent me, then yes, they have stopped making free daily payments.
However, as a way of making it up to genuine users for the loss of the daily-payment benefit, MediaDollarz have set up a sister site – points2shop.com – where you’re rewarded with immediate amazon points instead of immediate cash.
OOH, AREN’T YOU THE SHOWOFF…
MediaDollarz claim to pay higher than any other cash reward site and if you find one that pays more, they’ll not only match it but pay more.
ALAS, A POTENTIAL PROBLEM…
I’m already with two cashback sites – Pigsback and MyShoppingRewards. I noticed some of the offers I’ve previously done on Pigsback & MyShoppingRewards are on MediaDollarz too, so I can’t do those (as doing the same offer twice could get me blacklisted by an advertiser).
My snoop in, over and around Media Dollarz continues.
Part 2 coming soon.
If you see Santa delivering Xmas prezzies in January, it ain’t the poor bloke’s fault. Global warming, I tell you, global warming.
