Anybody using IFW sites to make some cash or earn some cool prizes? I just found these last friday, and it's the first time I've seen anything like this although I've been playing with money-over-the-internet for over a year. I made over $100, about $70 of which has already been paypal'd to me. Check this site: http://www.anything4free.com/forums/ Any of you guys do this stuff? I think cancelling all these trials is going to be a bit of a pain, but it put real cash in my hands almost immediately right when I needed it, so I can't complain... If only I wasn't running out of offers I haven't done yet... :)

I used to do this sort of thing, but found either it didn't earn me any money, or the conditions for earning money were too stringent. However I will look at your site.

Oh it's not fun at all, and I dread cancelling all the trials - I keep a text file where as I sign up for each offer, I put the website, note the trial period and any special conditions, copy the text for the "cancellation policy", and use this info to make sure I don't start getting monthly bills of $50-$100 per offer. Not fun! However, I desperately needed a little cash Friday, and within 3 hours I made the money I needed. So I can't complain much! :)

I have since cancelled every trial. One person still owes me $40 and I'm not sure I'll get paid, and another person is waiting for a site that refuses to acknowledge that I have completed THREE offers, any of which would give me the credit I need... I keep having to send them emails with all the headers... As for cancelling, everything went smooth in every instance - I was surprised. I didn't have long phone wait times or anything. The only one I didn't like was Pacific something, where I had to go track down their main page and find a chat-online support. But even that was done within 15 minutes. All in all I pocketed about $150 and am waiting for $60 more.

Well the offers are kinda scammy in a way - you sign up for a really inexpensive trial, or pay $1 for shipping, or whathaveyou... That gives them your credit card # and an agreement you probably didn't read to start billing you after your trial. They're counting on most people not reading the fine print, not calling to cancel the trials. So you have to be sure to follow up on everything you do, to cancel them before you get charged, otherwise you will lose tons of money. Sitting on hold with some of them, you get the feeling they make you wait 30 minutes on hold just hoping you'll give up and let them keep billing you... thank god I have all kindsa ways to entertain myself while wearing my phone headset... lol

I haven't heard of this site. I am going to check it out and possible sign up. Do you have any proof of your payment? I have some website that you'd really probably like though. http://www.freewebs.com/moneytrooper
