I've recieved Zen from the offers that you have to watch a video for - nice and easy. But the larger payout survey ones never seem to pay out squat, a total ripoff in my mind.

Most surveys I've completed have paid out.

Sometimes the browser's back button allows you to change your answers if they initially disqualify you.

I always love the 10 minute surveys you fill out that say "sorry you dont qualify" oh really? I just did this for free huh?

Sad this every one of them say that. Good thing I have a junk email for this stuff.

Also the videos dont pay out. 3 zen..you cheap turds, just pay it sheesh.

I decided to give this a try to see what would happen. First thing though was I opened an additional email account, one I would never use other than this specific purpose. I also have an old bank account that still has a little money it it, but I never use for anything. I still have the debit card for it as well.

I went through and more than half the offers I was DQ'd for after spending about 10 minutes answering questions. That was incredibly annoying. It seems as soon as you give them an answer they aren't looking for, they DQ you with no compensation. I did a few of the free trial offers. Some offered as much as 1500 zen. One I was able to go through and cancel right away without issue. The other three it seems purposely hide their contact information so you cannot get a hold of anyone to cancel the service. I did get the zen payout though. I ended up calling the bank because each of those "free trial" offers already pinged the account so there were contact numbers left. I quickly had the bank put a hold on the account because I had a feeling I was going to have some issues and sure enough, a couple of the phone numbers were incorrect so basically, I have no way to cancel these "free trials." Good thing is my bank though. They will not allow any of those companies to ping my card again (not like it matters, I have maybe $20 in that account).

I just find it unsettling that PWE would do business with a company that operates in this way. Some of these places are very shady and they make it impossible to cancel your free trials. The only recourse I had was reporting my card stolen and freezing my account. I know people will say it's not Perfect World doing this. Still, they are in bed with them and it makes me wonder about who I am doing business with.

Oh, and to make this funny, that email account I set up had over 100 spam emails in just over a day. Again, I know it's not perfect world doing the spamming, but if PWE was my friend and I knew they were doing business with a drug dealer...sorry, but I'm not hanging around with you anymore.

I've gotten thousands of zen out of this system. I've never gotten anything from the surveys, those are a waste of time, but you can get a lot from the trial sign-ups. Netflix is the big one of course, but also game fly I think and a few others. They are worth a lot, and regardless of how seedy PeanutLabs are, places like Netflix are legitimate businesses that WILL honor your request to end a free trial before you get charged, so there's nothing to lose. I for one never had a problem ending a trial, every one of them had a way to do it right on their site. I never had to make any calls at all.

I never got a single offer from Peanut Labs, no idea why. So I can't really say.

I've posted about this on several different threads...

I have been taking the survey since oh September 2012.

In total since I started doing the surveys, I have gotten over 10,000 zen.
Yes, you read that right and its not a typo.

I have bought things form the c-store like keys (10 packs), costume slots, DOFF complement increases, and ships. Shoot, I bought the Vesta line (3 pack) all with Zen obtained form surveys.

Now, I not going to say that it isn't easy, or fast. I can go days without getting anything from the surveys. Also the opposite is true, one day last week I got over 1200 Zen in one day alone!

It does take some persistence and patience. I will also go along with some who posted in this thread about the offers, which can be scam, spam, and so forth.

I generally stay away from them, even though I created a new email account just for this purpose.

But, like I said above, be persistent and patient, the zen will come. Also, I have found that if a survey doesn't grant Zen, i can contact Peanut Labs customer service and they usually resolve it to my satisfaction within 48 hours. Sometimes their ruling is against me, but the explanation is to my satisfaction.

So, take the surveys, and unless your feeling brave, or you have spam measures in place, take the offers. But it does work, it you keep at it.

You are in the minority and being used as a sucker to drag more players in to the scam. That is how this **** works.

The fact people have to set up fake E-Mails and details are proof that these scumbags doing these surveys aren't to be trusted.

I have been filling in these some last night and a few this morning....

After filling out 10 sureveys and watching 3 videos only 1 survey and the 2 videos gave me any zen at all.

All of these surveys were completed through to the part they say thank you so it wasnt disqualification.

Pleasee sort this out as at the moment this is just a rip off
