Why the Bonus Network beats TRAINN – HANDS DOWN

January 13, 2009

A lot of people have been asking about the Bonus Network, especially since my post from yesterday about how revolutionary they are. I decided to highlight them in a different way. I wanted to compare them to TRAINN sites. For those of you who don't know about TRAINN sites (Transcendent Innovations), they are one of the most mature sites in the industry and are loved by many because of the fact that it only takes one or two offers to go green. To find out more about them, you can read my article entitled “What are TRAINN sites and how to use them“.

The question I asked myself is: How does the Bonus Network compare to TRAINN? Now, I have never sent a referral to a TRAINN sites, because although I know I can make easy money with them, they are very prone to scamming and I'm not comfortable sending new traders there since new traders are easily scammed by TRAINN scammers. Like I said, if you want to know more about this, read my article.

Ok, lets start with the comparisons:

  1. TRAINN sites require one or two offers for you to green. Bonus Network also
  2. TRAINN sites have around 51 offers. Bonus Network has around 62 (and are working on adding more)
  3. TRAINN's customer support is slow (2 days on average). Bonus Network has live support, and they handle support tickets quickly.
  4. It takes a too long of a time for TRAINN to approve orders, so by the time you find out someone scammed you, they are long gone. Bonus Network approves orders within 24 hours, enough said.

When asked what makes Bonus Network different from the other networks, this is what one of the owners said:

Bonus Network offers outstanding support (both live and via a support ticket system), a revolutionized interface full of exciting new features, lower offer and referral requirements to receive gifts, fast gift fulfillment, and provides tools to its users to make the referral process easier – all of which allows us to serves the wants of users today better than any other freebie site on the web.

I couldn't put it any better. Bonus Network is the real deal. Some people have risen concerns that they aren't allowed on FLR. Quite frankly, if it were any other type of network, I wouldn't promote them. However, with the features they have, I have NO problems supporting or promoting them. So, if you are looking for a network that's just different, you know where to look.

    Quick Question–Why aren’t they allowed on FLR?

    • I asked Admin at FLR that question and he said “Unfortunately they are a banned network because they aren’t approved yet.” That’s the best answer I can give to that.

    • Bonus Network Fehz says:

      We have never approached the admin at FLR about our network nor tried to market/advertise directly to the FLR users. We have, though, had many FLR users run into our network and be completely taken away by it and try to trade the sites on FLR.

      From my understanding from a few users who told me they were from FLR, they were contacted when they were trading Bonus Network sites and the admin at FLR then blacklisted the sites. Based on what Leslie said above, I assume that’s the reasoning. I don’t condone breaking any rules of their forum, but I urge you to atleast sign up on one of our network sites and see what we’re all about. There are many other ways of obtaining referrals, especially friends since our network sites are so newbie friendly and easy to complete.

      I will definitely check you out. I’d love it if you were on FLR, I’ve concentrated the majority of my Freebie energy on obtaining refs there. My attempts at getting refs otherwise have been a lot of wasted time and energy. It sounds like you have a good site, though, so I’ll look into your network.

    I guess that I am confused about IFW’s. I got involved a couple of years ago, made a little quick cash to help pay the bills, and then ran out of offers. I see there are some new offers to do now on a few of the sites, so I could green maybe three times at this point for someone, but there are also alot of the same offers. (Overnight genious, video professor, grant searches, book clubs, and such.)
    I am so impressed that you have made such a good income from IFW’s but am also confused. The times I have tried to have referrals it has been such a huge hassle for me, people greening and then going yellow and red… losing money (maybe that is what you are getting at in this article here about TRAIIN sites) I think I am obviously going about things the wrong way for sure, because you have been very successful at this, obviously. I hope to learn more from you in the future.

    • Hi Heather, the freebie industry has come a long way in the last two years. It is obviously possible to make money because there are MANY MANY people doing it on a regular basis. I’m seeing more new people get into Freebie Trading who start making money quickly and are able to make a decent income on a regular basis. I’ve gotten hundreds of green and have NEVER had ANYONE scam me. It all boils down to setting yourself up for success. If you follow the right steps, you will be successful. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. My Freebie Report is a great place to start. Just sign up for the Cheat sheets to the top right and you will get a copy.

    Yeah I think the Bonus Network is pretty great, I’ve said it for a long time once I found they had large cash outs ($500) and were repeatable. They have switch to gift cards instead of PayPal but still, the fact that they are repeatable really does it for me !

    • Bonus Network Fehz says:

      We now actually also offer a check option! I haven’t added it as a prize yet, but it will be added shortly. Any prize can be substituted for a check. Let me know if you (or anyone else) have any more questions, feel free to email me at [email protected] or my partner at [email protected].

    It sures looks good but I would like to see the offers available on the network… how can I do that? Since I’m in Canada I would like to make sure there is enough offers available for me (and canadians) to easily complete the requirements. Especially since I’ve done a few sites already. ;0)

    Hi there- this is the same Nicole as [email protected] I cannot get into that email anymore and I don’t know how to change in on here..?
    Anyway, I am very much intrigued by the BONUS Network for sure. I wonder why it is not on FLR….? I would really really, love to include them into my sites and green on them. I just don’t know how since FLR doesn’t have them on their forum or anything yet. I agree with the TRAINN sites being a bit of a magnet for scammers. I just cashed out on my first trainn, luckily I was very careful on who greened for me and got no scammers.
