I am curious to know if this whole zen/c-points thing with peanut labs is just a big waste of time; where people just fall in the trick to give info for money that they will never see.

I've tried to see if this was another waste of time or not, and completed few surveys, getting 3 zen here, 5 there; for a total of probably 15 or so.

Then I saw that they had this cool 1300 zen for a subscription to Netflix.....so I told myself that I will use Netflix anyway, so I went ahead and subscribed to Netflix.

Well, in the end I got no zen for the transaction.

My first thought is that the free thing works only if you get few zen at time; while for big transaction, you get nothing....they will find a bunch of excuses to justify the fact that you didn't got the zen that you expected; but in the meantime they have got the referral trough my transaction.

I hope that it was just a mistake from their side....we will see what happens (I've opened a ticket with their support system).

If this is the case, I wonder how many users here had similar issue, and if they ever got the zen that were promised by peanut lab

Otherwise I would like to warn Cryptic/PW and all the users about the issue with peanut labs; so you guys are aware that something is not right, and every one can take a stance and decide if there are basis to start a legal action (other companies has been persecuted pretty hard for false advertising involving data collected from users).

I am playing this game since closed beta, I am sure that Cryptic/PW would never allow any kind of mess with companies using their name and IP.

I hope that this is just a big mistake, but in the meantime I am looking around to see what is the general feedback about peanut lab and their free zen offers, from other users.

Thanks in advance.

Zen? They pay out in... peanuts of course.

Some if not most of the surveys are allegedly just a con by way of getting information from you and then purposefully informing you that you're not the demographic (after the fact) or through an on-page script which makes it impossible to complete successfully.

Plenty of people have issues with them, while others have none. Just be careful giving away your personal information and remember, its not a guaranteed payout process (despite what it may convey in the LARGE TEXT).

You talking about that big, constantly present, never rotates to something else, ugly banner at the top of the forums? I clicked on that once, only once. My web browser sat there for about a minute trying to load the page, then displayed the lovely "could not load page, are you sure the address was correct?" message. I passed it off as a scam that weaseled it's way onto my Star Trek Online forums and haven't clicked it since.

I did run two different malware scans, a virus scan and a drive cleanup scan right after though. You know, just to be on the safe side.

I got lucky one weekend earning over 800 Zen.

I haven't seen another Zen since.

Did you have to do the whole Netflix free month or could you cancel after a week and still get the zen?

I cannot believe that Perfect World was talked into a partnership with this sad company. They do not give most of the Zen that they promise. They are using gamers and should be stopped. It is up to Perfect World to stop them!

I earned exactly one zen from watching a video, it arrived one week later...
The surveys suck btw.

I wonder if threads like this keep getting ignored.

For the most part, yes, it's frustrating to not get ZEN for 75% of the things you complete. Doesn't make you participate in more of them, y'know.
If ARC becomes mandatory, I'll never buy ZEN again.

I notice that I am not getting no Zen from the larger offers where you submit your information, sit through pages upon PAGES of click-here scams where you have to scroll to the bottom of the page to advance, I even submitted my information to receive the junk mail and NOT ONE ZEN other than from the watch-a-video for the 3 Zen deals... The entire system is a SCAM, and shame on Perfect World, STO, or whatever business owns this game for being associated with this!
