Trying to Learn the Ropes Here

Well, I am wrapping up my second day here on myLot and am trying to figure it all out and "learn the ropes". I understand that discussion is the key and I really like that! I have noticed one thing that I don't understand. When I go to my notification screen, there is a box that says "offers" under notifications, messages and suggestions. Can someone explain to me what this is and how it works?

As near as I've been able to tell, Offers is a way to earn extra money by participating in and signing up for certain promotional schemes (not necessarily bad schemes). I have made a little extra from them but I am very selective about which ones I will try.

@DWDavis is right you can do them if you want or not.

@sgbrown I do not care for them. I guess I keep myLot as kind of family. I do offers on Swag Bucks and other places where I do not have active friendships.

I've never done any offers. I don't trust them. They only want to get your details so that they can spam you later with more offers.

That is probably very true! I am not sure if I will try any or not.

Actually those offers are real. I did them before, and earned decent sum too. myLot is no bubblegum

Offers here is about the same as offers on inbox$$ and many other sites, just a list of different sites where they give you opportunities to earn by participating, so far I've had no luck getting paid for the trouble so I don't bother with them. If you have questions about how all that works you can message @goaskalice for more advice.

Offers may be in the form of a survey, a adspack, or whatever in exchange of a penny or something. It is easy to comply if you do have a debit card, a bank account or whatever they require of you. For offers, I find it not to promising. Well, it's up to you, if you want to try it.

It sounds like it may not be worth my time. Thanks for the reply!

I haven't bothered with them and don't know much about them. Luckily others have more knowledge. :)

I still haven't tried any of them, but have been tempted to see if I can make a little extra $$ by doing so. Maybe I will get brave, or stupid, one day and give one a try. I will let you know what happens if I do!

Below is a link to my standard 'Welcome Pack' which has links to all the essential information and also to a quick guide to using MyLot and answers to some of the most commonly asked questions. The 'Offers' section is a page of links to 'special offers' and surveys which claim to pay you a few cents for completing the offer. Most of them require you to enter information which you may not want to disclose - email address, street address, phone number and credit card details. You should be very careful about what you share and why, of course. I would advise only completing the offer if you are genuinely interested in the product being sold and only then if you can't find it cheaper elsewhere from a better known company. In general, it is probably best to ignore 'Offers' altogether!

I've never done the offers either. I reccomend just writing posts and comments.

The offers are interesting but I did one survey, the second one didn't pay as promised so I think I will just spend more time interacting.

I was just thinking, I barely have the time to spend here, why would I take away from that for these "offers" that are probably bogus anyway. Thanks for stopping in, Morley!
