Is this thing even working right now? For more than a month, every time I try to view the offers page, it tells me they have nothing available and that I should check back later... weird, since it worked perfectly for me until last december.

The SponsorPay Netflix 1019 zen offer was surprisingly clean and reliable. I got my zen within a day of registering, cancelled my account before the month was out and wasn't charged a penny. I would not touch the surveys with a barge pole however. Everything in PeanutLabs looks like a horrid scam. Stay away folks.

Who takes responsibility for the banners? Shouldn't be Cryptic since they are advertising on forums? SponsorPay is much better than Peanut labs.

Just wasted time and money with a new enrollment for Gamefly and did not work for me. I left countless of emails to Peanut labs but they are scam... be aware and dont waste your time with Peanut labs....

After filling out 10 sureveys and watching 3 videos only 1 survey and the 2 videos gave me any zen at all.
I started documenting the surveys I took. Some of them didn't pay out the amount of Zen that were promised in the offer, some of them didn't pay at all.

It takes a bit longer now, but I write down which surveys i take, make a screenshot of the initial offer, the "thank you" page at the end of the survey and another one of my browser history which lists the specific URL for each page visited during the survey.

If they don't pay up or don't pay the promised amount, I use the contact form and attach the above screenshots. I've gotten my Zen and an e-mail with an apology when I reminded them everytime.

After watching a few of the videos and getting 3 zen each time, I tried the lovefilm offer to get 1323 zen. Signed up over 36 hours ago using the peanut labs 2 months for the price of 1 page with the code already in the box. Hell I even turned off ad blocking and allowed third party cookies because I was worried it wouldn't work. Paid, love film account activated, watched a film, still no zen.

And the kicker? It isn't showing up in the peanut labs transaction history. All the ones for 3 zen are showing up though. I guess this is so they can try and deny that I ever signed up to lovefilm (even though my lovefilm account clearly shows that I have the 2 for 1 offer on the subscription page). The lovefilm offer just keeps showing up in the list as if I never signed up it!

I'm guessing they just lure you in with the small zen amounts then when you pay money for one of the offers they just screw you over. Half of the survey pages don't even load properly. Some of the videos don't pay out either, but at least the low value zen offers show up in the transaction history and force you to contact them to get the measley amount of zen they promised. They probably do it because they think people will not spend the time complaining for such a small amount of zen.

File a ticket with proof - such as copies of emails, etc. Someone from PW will look into it and you'll get a reply or the Zen within a couple of weeks.

Also keep in mind that those types of offers only work if you're a new client to the service. If you've had a Lovefilm account before you won't qualify - same with the Netflix offers.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

I'm a sliver player and i have got zen from the surveys, yesterday i got 500 and used it to buy 2 ship slots, previously i have used it to buy more officer slots, max doff slots slots 400, max space in my inventory and bank. EC cap increase. Gekli and even traded zen for dilithium when i was doing the romulan rep trying to get reman set.

Next on my list is account bank, scorpion fighter. peanut labs is the one that pays the others... not so reliable.

If you can get just 1 survey done, you got more dilithium than your daily 8000 limit.... and it takes less time than grinding for the dilithium.

I have done tons of peanut surveys and I've earned close to 5000 zen in the last 4 months. I would never do any of the offers that request personal information. In general the surveys never ask for personal information and when one does (and it's quite rare) I just skip it.

The surveys fall into three categories.

First there are some that just work like they are supposed to. I fill out the survey and get my credit right away. For me the zen always shows up right away when I complete a survey. I have never had a survey actually say "you've completed the survey" and not gotten my credit. I have not kept detailed records but I would say for me this has been about 10% of the surveys I've tried.

Secondly there are surveys that ask a few screening questions, maybe a minute or two, and then tell me I am disqualified. I have no problem with these and they are the vast majority, probably 80-85%.

The third category is quite annoying and I would estimate are 5% to 10% of the surveys I've tried. These are the ones that take me through a bunch of survey questions; 10, 15, even 20 minutes and then tell me I'm disqualified because I don't meet the criteria. These are quite annoying because they waste my time for nothing. I believe that I get disqualified for these either because they don't like my answers so they don't record them (these are more the ones that have political implications) or they just don't want to pay for my participation so they get my data and then disqualify me so they don't have to pay. I've complained to Peanut on these on several occasions but that is a dead end and I've always gotten the brush-off.

In the end I've come to the conclusion that "you pays your money and you takes your chances" so to speak. I no longer bother to get angry after 20 minutes of filling out questions and then nothing. There is the risk of wasted time but there is also an opportunity to get the zen.

As I said, I've filled out a ton of surveys and I've earned between 4000 and 5000 zen in the last 4 months or so. To me that is worth it, but I could see how it could be annoying for many.

My suggestion is to know what you are in for, get what you can get and live with what you don't get. And I very much recommend never giving any personal information. I would also not bother complaining because talking to a brick wall is pretty pointless.

If you are willing to put up with the irritation you can earn significant zen.
