Crewbux now saying 60 days to get paid - I am quitting ptc sites.

Well I logged into Crewbux today and it has changed its rules again. Free members can now only be paid on alert pay and it will take 2 months to get it. That is ridiculous. I am giving up on the site. I can make more money doing surveys and mylot than on ptc sites and I know they are reliable and pay. I am totally fed up with ptc sites and have no way of knowing if they will still be paying by the time I reach payout. I have decided they are a total waste of time. What do you think about this change? Are you still a member?

Well, I'm almost at 5 bucks, so when I do reach payout, I'll request it, and perhaps one cold afternoon I'll discover a free 5 bucks. That would sound like a nice little surprise, so I'm going to hold on a little bit longer, then I'm not surfing anymore.

I was at $1.79 but I do not have alert pay so I could not collect if I wanted to try. 60 days is ridiculous as the sight might not last that long. I set up an alert pay account but it is not confirmed and I am not sure I can withdraw money unless the bank account is confirmed.

That's so annoying that they change the rules continuously. It's just like a cheating in my opinion. Why not it pays after a year or even longer time? It doesn't make a sense. If my memory is correct, you can request a payment if you earn USD5 in Crewbux. Come on, USD5 isn't so much and it is a shame that Crewbux even pays for its members after 60 days. I love China

They are trying to make people upgrade so that they can still get paid but I have worked out that the unless you have tons of referrals you can never get your money back to pay for the upgrade price. That to me is cheating as the fees are so high. If you look at how many extra adds you get for upgrading and work out how many adds it will take to pay for the upgrade it will take you a year and you still will not cover the cost so they win.

I know that this might seem like a long time, but if you're earning more than a standard member with no referrals, it wouldn't seem as bad. For example, say you're a standard member, but you have a couple of hundred referrals, which means that you could be able to get $1000 in your account every 60 days. If you managed to do this on 4 or 5 sites which have a 60 day payout, it wouldn't seem half as bad, as you would be getting paid by some site or another every couple of days. And you have MyLot as well. It depends how you want to use the site. Obviously if all you're waiting for is $5, it can seem like an awfully long time, but if you're waiting for a lot more, the money that you get paid will be able to last you for two months until you will be able to get your next cashout. Hope that makes sense!

I have tried to get referrals and I am unable to do this as no one seems to want to join. It is easy to say get hundreds but not easy to actually get hundreds. I will not buy them because I do not have money to invest and I think it is a waste of money to buy them. I do not believe that you recoup what you spend.

Well if that site is one of the most reliable it does not say much for the others. Maybe none of them can be trusted any more.

For me they are a total waste of time. It takes forever to reach payout then they change the rules on ya. I stick with my real money-maker, concentrate all my efforts there, knowing that I'll get a check EVERY SINGLE MONTH!
