That's all for a "pctv4me" offer, to download some software, buying it for $99.

As the positive person I am, maybe it's all just an error in the linking. But currently it's being misleading.


was it fixed??

SuperSonicAds has an offer called Get cash when you need it! for British Gaians.

It links to PaydayUK, which as far as I'm aware is a legit short-term loans company. However, it's listed under free offers, and the offer requires you to take out a 'payday loan'. With the interest rate set at 1737% APR, I don't think it can really be counted as a free offer.

It's also my opinion that encouraging people to get into the cycle of payday loans is fairly irresponsible (especially by pushing the idea of loans being 'free money'), but that's only a subjective view. It definitely needs to be removed from the list of free offers either way.

Ruthless Autobiographer

Quiz Jungle: I did the damn offer, got no pay for it, skipped a bunch of offers before Webroot blocked the site; looking back an hour later and hearing other's horror stories, it was probably sneaking something in the back door.

MyVeiw: I registered a full-fledged account with these bastards with a name, address, email, race, gender, DOB, I don't remember what all else it required...over half an hour ago, it said I would get my Gcash in "less than 20 minutes" which was bs, I have no more now than I did yesterday.

I am under 18 and very uncomfortable with giving my home address to random scammers for fear of people banging on the door at 3am saying "you owe us money";
These people WILL NOT get my phone number, no matter how politely or threateningly they ask;
I alrady have bad enough spam on 3 email accounts;
And my computer is already unpleasant for any purpose, let alone adding viruses to the mix, hence I wil not download anything.

For months now, I have sworn to myself that if Gaia is having financial issues of ANY kind, they need to be like everyone else, and just charge companies more to annoy US with ads.
And whatever happened to the Gcash tree that will follow you around until you click it? It's been a while since i've seen it.

Yea, I'd say that quiz jungle makes half of my "un-paid" sponsors.
I've done so many surveys/games/quizzes, give my damn information, and I don't get what I need...some gaia cash.
I report it, but still no word.
On top of that, my computer is a Mac, and yes, they can still get viruses (not as easily as windows). But I still want to keep my computer safe, and having to able cookies to 3rd parties and enable my pop-up-blocker, I feel very uneasy.
All I can say is, hope to get my gaia cash AND to keep my computer safe...hopefully these "sponsors" won't bombard my computer or my email. evil

Did a survey a few hours ago, completely and, even though supposedly I was supposed to get my gcash in a matter of minutes, I've yet to see anything.

Typical.

Under Offer Pal: "Get Your Free Doritos Samples"
Problem: Offer is not free as listed. User is required to complete offers that cost money to get said free object... thus not free and should not be listed in the free category.

11/9 UPDATE

We just launched with 2 new providers- gWallet and Supersonic Ads. Now, you'll have the option to browse through offers from 4 providers in total. Let us know what you think!

Are you still seeing any inappropriate offers? Report them here and we'll do our best to get them removed.

---------
Hi everyone,

We're committed to improving the experience around sponsored offers on Gaia. To this end, we've removed all offers that we deemed questionable for our community and would like your help to keep the quality of offers high.

Please let us know if you've seen a sponsored offer on Gaia that you feel is inappropriate for our community. Please be specific about the offer - quoting the offer headline would be most helpful - and let us know why you think it is inappropriate (e.g., the topic is unsuitable, the offer contained misleading information, etc.). Thank you!

------------------
Update:
Thanks for your feedback! I've read the thread and want to point out that Gaia has asked that all offers that require ANY download and installation of software be removed from our site. So, if you find yourself doing an offer that requires a download, please don't do it. Instead, please report it here so I can get the offer removed from our site.

I'm currently investigating Free Hilarious Jokes - thanks for the heads up. I've signed up for the offer - still don't see any email from them. If this doesn't match my expectations, it's going off the site as well.

Regarding mobile offers - some of you asked about those - we've removed ALL mobile offers with recurring billing charges as we felt this to be somewhat misleading (the recurring part was sometimes hidden from the user).

Please keep your feedback coming!

---------------
Quick update and correction on the above:
We're trying out a few new offers:

1) Yahoo Toolbar download
2) Real Networks download
3) RewardTV survey
4) Quiz Jungle Avatar survey

Exceptions to the 'no downloads' statement made above: We made that decision because of complaints of hidden downloads of spyware and malware from disreputable providers which give users a poor experience. Since then, we've learned that there are sponsored offers from legitimate brand-name providers (such as Yahoo and Real Networks) which are very popular among users of sites such as Gaia. We're trying these offers out on the premise that they should provide a good experience- so let us know what you think. Do you agree/disagree?

Everything Game Coin puts out. Delete them, they suck.

Not only do they put you through billions of endless surveys, they don't pay out and their customer service is non-existent.

Well, I know for one the videos work if they do play. I've earned some cash from them. I only do videos and subscriptions to known sites for my own safety.

The Peanut Labs Surveys that appear at the top of the screen after you give them your email. They'll ask you a few questions, say you qualify, and even if you've been doing the survey for half an hour, they can say that you don't qualify at any moment and give you no cash.
