get a snotty reply about you failing to click the right link...
(like i'm a R****d and all i do is bang my head against the keyboard... actually that may be true)
Or they say that their records show no transaction from you to that link.

i can honestly say 95% of them haven't paid out and that's just out of order.
i'm glad i started a "Dustbin" email address for these because the amount of spam you receive after completing 1, is beyond insane.

my over all impression is if you don't mind watching the videos its worth it, but stay away from the surveys... just pointless! (literally)
I have also had bad experiences with this and ceased doing them. Brandon, From your blog you don't seem to be offering a solution:

"In order to receive your Zen, you must make sure that you have completed the survey or offer completely ? there may be a final step such as verifying an email or using a link that is sent to you. Until that last step is taken, the offer is not complete. If you have completed the offer completely and have not received your Zen within a reasonable amount of time, you will need to contact Peanut Labs if you are using the North American site, and SponsorPay if you are using the European Site . It is very important to both Perfect World Entertainment as well as Peanut Labs that our users have a good experience with these surveys. They will be able to assist you further with getting your Zen."

So basically, if Peanut Lab doesn't pay out you are still SOL.

The concept is good. And I have used similar services with other games and other companies and had fewer problems.

In my opinion you should drop Peanut Labs as your service provider. But who knows maybe it will be better from now on.
