How to Complete Offers and Get Credit!

September 16, 2008

The worse thing that can happen when doing method 1 is that you complete an offer and not get credit for it. The reason for this is that if you do not get credit, you do not get paid. Now, that's definitely no good. You've wasted money, an offer, and time. In order for you to get credit for the offers that you complete, there are some steps that you need to take. Here are some instructions that will help:

  • Disable any Anti-virus software that you might be using. This isn't 100% necessary, but recommended by some. I haven't done this and haven't had problems. There are some Anti-virus programs that do stop the transfer of cookies.
  • Disable all Popup Blockers.
  • Set Browser to accept all cookies. Most freebie sites use cookies to track your offer. If you don't accept cookies, you might not get credit!! In other words, your privacy settings need to be set at its lowest possible option.
    • In Firefox: Tools > Options > Privacy > Check “Accept cookies from sites”
    • Explorer: Tools > Internet Options > Privacy > Move slider to accept all cookies
  • One of the MOST IMPORTANT THINGS to remember is that before completing an offer, you need to CLEAR ALL COOKIES. When you have done that, you need to re-login to the freebie site, then complete the offer.
    • In Firefox: Tools > Options > Privacy > Select “Clear Now” Under “Private Data” > “Cookies” and “Cache” need to be selected > Then click on Ok.
    • Explorer: Tools> Internet Options> Delete Temporary Internet files
  • When you have completed the offer, leave browser window on the confirmation page for 10 minutes.
  • If you aren’t credited instantly or within the specified time, do not panic. It takes a while sometime. Also, there is a risk that some offers will not credit. In some cases, you can submit a Manual Credit Request (MCR). However, most sites are moving away from this because of the amount of fraud that arises.
  • NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO CLEAR COOKIES BETWEEN OFFERS AS LONG AS YOU ARE WORKING ON THE SAME FREEBIE SITE. IF YOU START ANOTHER SITE, YOU NEED TO CLEAR COOKIES. SO ONCE AGAIN, LET ME EMPHASIZE, DO NOT CLEAR COOKIES BETWEEN OFFERS!

Basically, you want to ensure that the cookies are being transfered without a problem. This is how the sites communicate with each other so that you can get credit. It is important to know that it is possible for you not to receive credit for some reason or another. However, by taking the steps outlined above, you will be able to maximize your success. I have done approximately 60 Offers, 3 of which never credited.

    I would like to note that the use of a prepaid credit card and any other fraudulent information when signing up for offers can also cause crediting issues beyond a freebie sites control, so be sure to be using not only your real information but a real credit card as stated on most offers to ensure proper reporting of the offer.

    Hi Leslie, I am a newbie reading all I can before starting to make money with the Freebie website. My question is, is it really worth it after signing up for offers that cost money, will the money I receive back give me a profit, and are their any other costs I am not aware of yet.

    Thanks, Norma

    • It definitely is worth it. Lets put it this way Norma. On my first site, I spent $3 and got paid $20. Then I think I spent $5 on the next and got paid $30. Eventually, I spent more on some offers, because I wanted to do them for the actual product. In those cases, I looked at it as getting paid to buy something I wanted to buy. Eventually, when you move on to method 2, you no longer have to EVER do any offer, unless you REALLY want to. I moved on to method 2 in 2 weeks. So, yes, you do loose some of the profit in the beginning, but not much. However, keep in mind that the goal is method 2, where you NEVER have to spend one cent. Hope this makes sense.

  • Actually, Paypal has nothing to do with this process and neither does the offer company. Freebie Sites go through affiliate networks and crediting is a process that relies on the technology. Unfortunately, technology isn't perfect. This is one of the risks you take as a Freebie Trader. If it's not one you are willing to take, then Freebie Trading might not be for you, which is ok. My recommendation would be to find what works for you and stick with it. That's what I try to do. All the best!

    You have mentioned several times that you may not get credit after paying your fee and completing the offer. After exercising the offer, there should be no excuse for not getting credit if you have a receipt from Paypal, and a confirmation. Anyone that had this happen to them should definately be having a conversation with Paypal about the return of their money.
