Just do them on a disposable computer, with a disposable e-mail address. Once I earned enough zen to buy my way onto the forums FLUSH went the HDD and e-mail addresses.

Bran- Thats my feedback, those offers are just phishing, pushed by PWE.

I did PWE's survey from the blog for my feed back. I can't recommend anyone do them, the offers for Netflix and stuff from legit companies are cool and I did have a pretty good run there for a while, but you fill out the wrong survey and almost the instant you hit submit you are carpet bombed by phone calls.

I did the car insurance survey for a quote on car insurance, at the end they asked if it was OK to call you or have partners call you for to give you other quotes, I did not check this and the survey wouldn't progress and I closed it (happened a few times where there was something like this or it asked for personal information I was not willing to give out). Almost the instance I had closed the window I started getting calls from all kinds of car insurance companies. The fact was, the page before it had asked for my number and was required for their quote, but on the next page I did not check the accept phone calls box, I should not have gotten calls. The main bulk of the call lasted for about a month and I got occasional ones after that and for the amount of harassment I had to endure and not get a single ZEN turned me off to any future ZEN offers. I also got a ton of junk mail out of that, but those went straight to the shredder and my local land fill/recycling.

*edit*

OK, this is so weird. I now have access to the Sponsorpay "offers" again.
But, Branflakes, I'm not able to report faulty "free" offers through that form.
There is no option for free text.

The following "free" offers requires payments to be made to complete them.

I will edit this post as I find more so I don't spam with links in the forums.
Although if you prefer some other way for me to submit these please let me know.

I've completed something like 70-80ish of these offers...

Ones that work
Watch said video and receive 3 Zen

Ones that don't work
Almost all of the survey ones that offer ~50+ zen for free

It annoys me that peanut labs don't pay out even though you complete the survey
(which can take up to 20 minutes despite in some occasions they say 5 minutes)

when you report a non payment or a bad link you either
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)

And again I only get Peanut Labs instead of SponsorPay. What's up with that, Branflakes?

Can't you make it possible to pick between the two for us by clicking their logos?

I used to do the surveys and made a decent amount of Zen from them. I stopped though for a few reasons.

-Zen payout was lowered. I was able to do several surveys for 300-700 Zen each once upon a time. Those were for 30-40 minute surveys. Now I can barely find one that has over 100 for a 20-30 minute survey.

-Constant disqualification. After a month without being able to qualify for any surveys, I just stopped.

-Disqualified after finishing half the survey or more. A few surveys have a progress bar on the top. I once made it to 72% finished when I was disqualified. 30 minutes of my time wasted. Not cool.

For now I've stopped doing them and use only my stipend for "free" zen.

I would like to add that from doing 10 of these, or rather trying to, as previous poster mentioned, a lot of them either fail before compleation or we don't qualify for them after doing 75% of them. Coincidently long after we have already provided them with our e-mail, phonenumber and other contact information.

From doing these 7 I now get about 50 spam mails from over 30 different domains, per day, phishing for more info like credit cards and stuff.

So be warned. Do not do as they say and provide your real contact information or an e-mail address that you use regulary. Make a junk mail account only for this if you decide to do it.

Branflakes, do you have any reply to why these are listed as free when they aren't?

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.

I concur. Some offers don't follow through. Even though you guys went through the offers, we get screwed over. Spam mails, spam phone calls, things like that.
