I was going to buy some referrals until I saw this note

Gave me a tingling feeling all over! Would you buy referrals seeing this not? It just might be my paranoia. These Referrals Are Randomly Selected And We Make No Guarantees That They Will Be Active! Referrals Are Not Replaceable At This Time. What You Get, Is What You Get. Order at Your Own Risk!

I don't think I would ever buy referrals.I've been given 9 free referrals from Treasure Trooper and none of them is active.You'll never get a guarantee that any referral will be active.

Hey, anything is possible. Maybe in the future we can trade refs.

No, I would certainly not spend money here! Supposing I were to go to a shop and ask for a box of eggs. If I was warned that they made no guarantee that any of the eggs would be actually good (let alone 50% of them!), do you think I would buy them, however cheap?

I wonder if anyone ever buys from them? Safe to say, I did not!

To be honest with you, I think in most sites this applies, only problem is most sites don't let you know. You might want to take this note into consideration not just for the site with the note, but for any site that involves paying money to purchase referrals. No site can truely guarantee active referrals for you and if they do they're full of it. Just thought I would leave my two cents! Aha, =P

Your 2 cents is very valuable!!! You bring up a good point indeed. This site went out of its way to say no guarantees, when other sites are saying the opposite.

Well that, and my philosophy is why pay when you can get'em for free if you try hard enough? I wouldn't ever put money into purchasing referrals unless I could get 100% assurance that they will be actiive. But. Like I said! Noone can promise you that.

I would not buy from the website either. I do not buy referrals to begin with, because I use the internet to get free money, so money that I do not have to put anything financial into to get the money out, so buying referrals would be against that principal and there is no guarantee how active they will be.

now i reading that note would automatically tell me not to buy referrals since their not replaceable and not guarantedd to be active... why risk my money if it's not worth it

Hold on! don't buy any referrals from this site. I see some sites that responsible with their referral sale. Those site even replace the referrals when they are not active! cool or what? I haven't concentrated on referrals , yet because i have not yet money to spend. LOL Happy posting !! OoXx`dian

Replacing inactive refs, that is a cool idea, but I think eventually that site will stop that feature because you cant please everyone. Everyone has a different definition for that word "active". No, I didnt buy the refs at that site. You know most sites let you use your account balance to buy refs. Thats an idea if short on cash.

i think it's obvious that a website can't guarantee that referrals you buy will be active. i signed up to getref, and they have a pretty good method. the buyer specifies what activities he wants done by the new referral before they give credit for joining. activities might include getting 50 page views, starting a blog, etc. obviously there is no way to be sure the referral won't just stop after he did what you asked for, but if the website he signed up for is worth it, why should he?

I would hesitate from buying referrals from the site...but then again, with them saying they couldn't guarantee the activeness of the referrals, they must be legit.

Oh I think its a legit site and they pay. Thats why that note caught me off guard.

They are obviosuly not a scam! They make absolutely no claims to the quality of their product. You know they've got a saying down in Texas...

Oh boy, not another Texas saying? So many to choose from. So whats the saying you got?

I wouldn't buy referrals full stop, even if I had any faith in these schemes. They do say you have to speculate to accumulate, but there's also a saying about throwing good money after bad.

Both statements are so true. I am in the middle somewhere.

its almost as if they are warning you not to buy their referrals lol ! i would so not buy referrals from a site that says that. I mean sure if thats the case they are being honest, but still.. i dont think anyone wants to buy almost *guaranteed* inactive referrals, no replacements or refunds ....

Thats what I thought! They are talking us out of buying. I dont know if thats good or bad of them. Looking back, this is so funny.

I used to use my points on one of my gpt sites and use them to exchange in for a referral when I had enough points for them.But after 4 people and none being active I quit.I took the 1.50 in exchange for 16 points due to when I got my referrals they were not active.I know I didnt pay but that was work on my part to earn the points.I would be leary about that note too.It sounds like its saying you might get a bad batch of apples without seeing them when you buy.So its kind of a gamble.You might get some active referrals or all of them could be active but their is always some people that seem to sign up for a sight then just quit doing anything on it.
