NeoPoints can no longer be converted to Rental Balance

Yep, unfortunately you can no longer use NeoPoints to rent referrals. That option has been officially removed by the admin. Instead, you can use it to manage (by means of extending or recycling) rented referrals. You can still convert it to a Golden membership when you reach 30K points or if you have maxed out your direct referrals limit, then, you can increase that limitation using NeoPoints. As for me, I'll just simply keep the NeoPoints and exchange that for a Golden membership when the time comes. I won't rent referrals using my main balance unless I have Golden membership. Seasoned Neobux clicker can say that it's not profitable to rent referrals if you are simply a Standard member.

That's another one. They want to close the business. That's it. Instead of directly closing the site, they are discouraging everyone, so that everyone will forget the site. Slowly when people forget it, the site will go offline. This way, nobody will call it a "scam". This is the best time to leave the site.

I don't think the site is turning scam. No, that's not their plan at all. The site is still very much alive but I believe they're trying to keep the money in. They wanted members to purchase referrals from own pockets or from main balance to keep a steady flow of cash in the system.

Only time can tell you the reply. As far as my opinion is concerned, I am seeing that Neobux is going exactly on the path that I predicted. May be it will not happen immediately, but the path is leading to that point only.

I'm not offending too. But, the way they ran the site for the past years, was definitely not sustainable. However, they wanted to top the traffic ranking and they did it. They monetized the traffic as much as they can, and when the time came they just did what they were waiting to do. Still, I admit that they don't want to scam. But, they don't want us.

First of all, I should admit that I am not happy with the decision. Because I was renting referrals with the Neopoints and from now on I will not be able to do that. Now I have to change my strategy as well. Previously my strategy was- Reach 2500 Neopoints and convert it to rental balance which equaled to $1.75. So I was getting a conversion of $0.0007/neopoint. Then I would rent 5 referrals out of it. And I was using my main balance to extend my referrals. From now on I have to completely flip my strategy. And remember from now I can get $0.00075/neopoint, which is slightly more from previous ocassion. Lets see what happens.

Hi yallit that may be true and your strategy may have its advantage. But I am doing my own experiment with this website. And I don't have any plan to invest from my pocket also. I will only use the main balance and Neopoints.

Not really surprised by that - I imagine that did really quite seriously reduce the income. And you are right - don't rent refs as a standard member - but 30k points for the upgrade, that might take a while!!

Indeed, Standard members may take a year or 2 to achieve that 30K Neopoints. I was able to get 2K Neopoints in a month and a half. If we'll base it on that, it will take about 22 months to earn 30K Neopoints. Well, hopefully Standard members get lucky with the Adprize and that they either win a Golden membership or the 10K Neopoint prize.
