A lot of people have been asking questions about the free ($.50-$.75) offers. So I've come up with a little guide using info from other posts and my own ideas.

Earning Potential

For those of you with no credit cards, you can still make a lot of money just doing the free offers. Right now there are over 150 free offers, and more are added regularly. So far I have made $30 doing free offers, and lots of people have made much more.

More info: http://forum.treasur...showtopic=14134


The Meaning of "With Intent to Participate"

Many people have asked how far into the survey they have to go for offers that say "enter email address with intent to participate." Usually these offers ask for 1) you email address or zip code, 2) your mailing address, 3) To answer some survey questions (mostly yes/no), and 4) for you to complete one or two other offers (most likely CC offers or paying offers). So how far do you have to go? I have gotten offers approved by just entering my email address. Other people like to go as far as entering their other personal information, just to make sure. It's recommendable to at least answer a couple of the survey yes/no questions. However, you do not have to go as far as step four to get the offer approved.

Spamming/Telemarketers

A common question about completing free offers is, "Will I get junk mail/phone calls if I give out my personal information?" The answer, in short, is yes. If you give out your email address, you will definitely get spam email- I get about 200 a day. But a good way to counteract that is to get an email address specifically for Treasure Trooper- that way, the spam won't get in the way of your other emails. As for giving out your mailing address, most people have found that they don't get too much junk mail, and nothing inappropriate. I think the average is one or two pieces a week. If you give out your phone number, you may get some phone calls. Members have recommended www.k7.net to solve that problem. So spam shouldn't really be an issue, as long as you take certain measures to avoid it.

Ok, the topic we've all been waiting for... (drum roll please  :P)

Approval Rates

Tons of people have been asking (and complaining) about the approval rates for free offers. So I'll give it to you straight: not all offers will approve the first (or second, or third) time you complete them. To "redo" an offer, you simply go to your Pending Offers, click on the link for the offer you have to redo, and fill in your information again. Most free offers will approve in 1-2 days (except for ones such as poetry.com, picture.com, ebay, and iWon) so if it hasn't approved in 3 days, it's safe to redo it. I was curious to see what the approval rate actually was for the free offers, so I made a little chart showing how many times I completed an offer before it was approved (I know, I'm a dork  :D ):

1. Free iPod- I
2. Free Smart Phone- I
3. Tik Tik Cash- I
4. Free Bowflex- I
5. Free Sony PSP- I
6. Free Olympus- I
7. Free Gift Card- I
8. Alienware Laptop- I
9. Nintendo DS- II
10. Vacuum- II
11. Mac Mini- III
12. Free Blue Tooth- III
13. Free Vacation- III
14. Circuit City- III
15. Texas Holdem- III
16. Free Lawn Mower- IIII
17. GPS- IIII
18. Free Razr- IIII
19. Ford/Chevy- IIII
20. Sephora- IIIII
21. Taylor Made- IIIII
22. Gym Pass- IIIII
23. Bose Sounddock- IIIII

I also have about 10 more free offers that still haven't approved, even after doing them 5 times. As you can see, not all of the offers approve the first time you do them. And approval rates are different for each person- one person could have an offer approve the first time they did it, while another person could have to complete the same offer five times to get it approved. I'm not sure if anyone knows exactly why this is, but there are some steps you can take to increase your approval rate:

1. Alternate between email addresses

If the offer requires an email address, having several different ones to give out greatly increases your chances of having the offer approve. Many people have at least three email addresses they alternate between.

2. Don't do too many free offers at once

Most people recommend doing about 5 offers a day to maximize your chances of getting approved. Otherwise, you'll find yourself having to redo a lot of offers.

3. Don't clear your cookies while completing an offer

"Cookies" are pieces of info that are put on your computer when you visit a site. If you clear these while doing an offer, the site has no way of knowing that you were there. Some people recommend clearing your cookies before and after doing an offer, but I haven't noticed an increased approval rate from doing that.

The bottom line: be patient. Lots of offers will have to be redone, and persistence is definitely required, but hey... it's a small price to pay for FREE money, isn't it?

THE END!!!  :D  :P  :lol:  ;)  B)
  thanks alot that helps me

:rolleyes:
Ok i'm sure this has been addressed somewhere but dumb me..lol..can't find the answer.

When you go to cash offers sometimes I don't remember if I did one already.  Is there an easier way then having to go to pending offers, and approved offers and search for it.  Basically I want to know when you complete offers and click done does it remove it completely from the cash offers page for me.  So I won't accidently do the same one over.  The one's that pay more are easy to remember, but the 50 cent ones kinda get confusing.

I'm not sure if what I said makes sense but i'll post anyway.
Thanks.

Once you have clicked done, the offer gots to the pending offers page. If it doesn't approve in a month then it will go back to the cash offers page after payout. But if it approved then it will go to the approved offers page and will stay there for ever.
