Inactivity on Mylot will cost you

On two occasions I had my account up to ten dollars. The first time I had just over ten dollars, I think it was just over eleven dollars and fifteen cents. I ended up working full time and it kept me busy so I didn't have all that much time to come here on mylot. About six months later I logged into mylot and my balance was at zero! The second time I made my way up to ten dollars and sixty-five cents and went inactive again and I signed on a few months later and my account is back down to zero so my advice is to keep your payout at the lowest then cash it out and don't go inactive here in mylot. I was thinking about emailing them to find out or go over the rules to see if there is an inactivity period where my account would be wiped out. Has this happened to you?

As long as you log into MyLot and do something every 90 days you can keep your earnings. I was a way for awhile, but I've been active lately and I did not lose my earnings.

There's a span of time of how long you can keep your earnings. After that, they'll deduct all your earnings to $0. You have to at least log in in order to keep your earnings intact. I've never experienced this before but there was a time when I'm totally unaware of it. I read a discussion regarding this a year ago, that's how I knew about it.

I see you have been given the answer about logging in prior to the 90 day period. You wanted to email and ask if they will wipe out your account if inactive. This is not necessary, myLot does not suspend accounts for inactivity. We can leave here for years and as long as myLot is still online the account is available to us. The only time they suspend and or ban is when one breaks guidelines. So if we ever leave are are sure to always be welcomed back right where we left off and not have to worry about our account being suspended.

What a post, I seems to me as an eye opener. Thank you for opening this up. Must make sure to update my mylot account for once in a while t prevent wiping out of money. Have a great day. You have now a lesson learned, don't do that again.

I'm glad you are appreciative of this post.. some of the mylotters already knew this apparently and that's not who I intended on letting know my point. Yes I have learned my lesson lol and I won't do that again!

nixxi you sure were not observant when you signed onto mylot as the print you sign says states clearly if you do not sign in at least every ninety days your money will be wiped out so do at least sign in before the 90 day deadline. its also in the mylot info either in the guidelines or the FAQ's and you are supposed to have read these whem you signed up. yes there is a deadline as mylot admins are not your banker. read the information it will not hurt one bit and will answer your questions toos.so do go over the rules y ou should have gone over back before point one after your name.and you did not have to even be posting to keep yo ur money all you needed to do was just sign in to keep your account active you were told this is o nly you had just read it.!!!!!!!

Ok Hatley I get it I wasn't very observant but I'm letting the newbies know what happens. I'm sure some of the members here in mylot are appreciative to know about this incase they haven't read over the rules.

Didn't you read the rules? I know all about that already ever since I started posting here.

This post wasn't intended for older mylotters so if you knew this good for you! On mylot we can talk about anything so I decided to start a conversation about inactivity here on mylot.

So far it hasn't happened to me yet phew! I have been active on Mylot everyday and only been inactive like once or twice but not a few months. Thanks for telling me though, I wouldn't know and so far my earnings are way pass $10 and I wouldn't want all my hard work to be wiped out completely! Pretty much, Mylot pays you if you are an active member and penalize you if you're inactive. That's quite harsh but who said money was easy to get? So next time. lesson learnt, don't leave Mylot hanging there for too long or else have all your cash wiped out and game over. Then you have to start over all over again and spend more time. So I'm going to try and be active as much as I can and hopefully reach my pay out soon before I get busy.

You think it is harsh and yet you agreed to it when you registered here?

I am a new comer to this site but every information helps like the one you just offered. Thanks for letting us know the price of inactivity. Did you contact the support? What did they say? I am inactive on certain sites but noticed they transfer the funds as soon as it reaches threshold limit.

When you registered didn't you read what you were agreeing to? Didn't you read the email that you received after you registered? MyLot transfer our earnings too if we reach the minimum but if we are inactive for more than 9 days/three months we lose them, as you would know if you stop and READ the information available: http://www.mylot.com/o/mylot.aspx

Oh boy, i find it so unfair if that's the case. Well, for I have only 2.13 dollars now and I already losing my interest in responding to some discussions. I looking for perfect time to become idle here, and since you warned me about this. I don't know what will be the effect this to me and to others.

If you find it unfair, then why did you AGREE to it when you registered? The effect to those who know is zero. The only ones who are shocked are those who agree to things without reading them first

it means that your money had been sent to your PayPal account, buddy..!! LOL..sure your money was gone cos Mylot took it not for itself but for you. after Mylot sent your money to your PayPal account, your balance will be back to zero. remember that Mylot send our payment on 15 every month. so it's logic that you 'lose' your money after left Mylot for month cos your money has been sent to your PayPal. so it's better for you to check your balance in your PayPal account. I'm sure that your balance in PayPal will be more than $20..I ever left Mylot for about two years and when I got back, my balance is still the same just like two years ago. It's true. so never give up on Mylotting, will ya?

Huh? If we are inactive myLot do NOT send our earnings to our account. If we don't log in (even without posting) we lose them all after 9 days/three months.

wow you lost what 20$ in all? that's not good but your right if you KNOW your not going to be active for a while it's best to cash out before hand so you DON'T lose your money like that I don't PLAN on being inactive unless my computer goes SLAP OUT on me then I'll go get me another one ASAP ! which I'm working on doing here sometime this year if I make the $ I need.

Fortunately, this has never happened to me. Although there are times when I'm not very active here, I still try to log in and participate at least once a month.I really try to be active, but sometimes I forget or am too busy to comment a lot.

Hello nixxi, I haven't experienced this one because the minimum payment on my setting is $10 so whenever I reach ten dollars the next month I would receive payment so I have nothing to worry about. The last time I have receive payment was in 2010 from that time, I don't remember anything if I was able to earn something here as I was inactive for more than a year. When I returned here my balance is zero also but I don't mind since I know I wasn't active here and I don't think I have earned something since my last payment. Just stay active so it won't happen to you again and also, make sure the minimum payment at your settings is 10 dollars. Have fun mylotting!

Keep active here to avoid any problem like losing your earnings. Like other mylotters had advised, at least log in here and check your account. I never had any problem with mylot since I always come and log in here everyday. Yes,everyday as i am so addicted to this site

Yes inactivity means our loss so friend now activate at least once in a month or once in week. Interact with myloters and do the fun and get the knowledge.

Luckily this hasn't happened to me because so far I managed to post constantly on mylot,the biggest break between my posts being of about one week,and even if it's also a very busy period for me,I try to make at least a few posts a week,hooping that my schedule will allow me to be more active again,as I was in my first months here in mylot.Anyway,I'm determined to avoid a longer period of activity,so I'm quite sure that I won't lose my earnings because mylot is still the best site for me and I couldn't abandon it for several months.

I always log in to mylot every day but most often just read the post. But last week I realized that my $20 earning went down and it became $17.50. I don't know why what happened by $2.50 was taken from my earning. Hmm....Just wondering though.

you can only cash out at $10 or what you have it set out and its automaticly done from mylot. So best to keep coming back each week rspond I do it every day but then some times2 or three months before I reach payout

I think you should read the questions and answers mulot. should also know that every 60 days that I know should not come here to not lose money. I do not personally happened to me and hopefully I do not happen. I wish you no longer happens. Interesting discussion. nice day!
