Have you taken the $3 task?

The time I logged in to myLot, I received a new alert. The new stimulus package, which is the tasks, is stated there. I was lucky because there are still a lot of $3 dollar task offers(I am not sure though if it will be approved). When I referred it to a friend, all of the $3 offers are gone. It means that all of the available slots for the offer were already taken. Only the lucky ones, including me who the tasks an hour after it was launched, were able to take the $3 dollar tasks. How about you? Were you able to catch the offer? If not, I bet you envy me. ^_^

I gave these new tasks a shot, and took up the challenge to locate and resize one of the required sports logo. It is still pending, so I am not sure if my submission will be accepted and rewarded. I can only keep my fingers crossed. These tasks remind me of a site I am on called Amazon Mechanical Turk, where there are also tasks to be done where money is awarded if these tasks are completed successfully as required by the parties requesting them.

I was thinking that same thing about Amazon. It reminds me of that too. I was trying to do the logo one but I couldn't figure out how to resize it to the right size. What program do you use to resize a picture?

I used Photoshop. The logo they needed though is very small; I think it was 38 pixels by 24 pixels only. Even the examples they gave were of very small logos hardly any bigger than the nail of your thumb.

Oh OK. Thank you. I dopn't have photoshop installed right now. I got a new computer and haven't installed it yet. When I do, I'll give it a try if they still have that task. Thanks

i was not able to catch any of the offers. although i received an offer from alerts, i did not bother to read it because i know today that i could not perform any other tasks because of work. oh, i missed my chance. i envy you. i will look for it next time. once i receive an alert, then i will grab the opportunity. $3 is not bad during this time.

Yup. $3 is something you can earn here in myLot for more than a week. So it really is great to have it in less than 30 minutes of writing. I am not sure, though, if it will be approved. What offers have you taken so far?

Hehe. Early birds catches the worms. ^_^ But there are still a lot to come. Just hope that myLot will still offer a $3 dollar task in the future.

Well, when I logged on today there was only one task listed and it is to download a toolbar and write a paragraph about it. I don't download things like that so I can't get the extra money today either. I wasn't able to be on yesterday due to work. I hope that I can get some extra money this week. I was hoping that they were going to pay us for doing unresolved discussions and stuff like that or ask us to research a certain subject to write about. I am glad that you got to take advantage of the offers that they had and I hope you earn some good money.

No did not manage to get that one. I had the toolbar, but it got rejected. For this one, you can only earn 0,10 cents. I guess I did something wrong. Good luck with the tasks.

Mine got rejected right away. I did not download the toolbar because I already knew about it. I made a short review, but that was not enough. Oh well, maybe next time. Have you got your results? Take care.

You already have the results for your task? Mine, until now, are not yet approved. They are still pending, and that is over 24 hours by now.

I also did research for it. The hassle with the $3 tasks, though, is that you have to do research on the topic they gave you. It is because the topics they gave are not common or typical.

Yes, I did.. but i've made one task only as i wanted to see first if they are going to pay or not.. but i'm positive that mylot would pay, my only worry is if my task would be approved or not.. i'm still waiting for it to get approved and i'm hoping that my review wouldn't go to waste.. =)

Maybe, by the time you logged in, all the $3 dollar tasks were already full.

I didn't see the $3 one myself, but I applaud those who did because perhaps that got them a bit closer to payout. I am close to the $10 mark myself and that would send me over the $10 with spare change, so I'm happy with what I got and leave it like that. However, it is great for those who want to make some more change. Makes them get to payout quicker too.

unfortunately I could not find such an attractive task though I have logged in the first time only after introducing the stimulus package here, I have tried to complete one task but due to some error in the download link the task is not completing, anyway I will try again to get some good task in coming days

I saw the $3 tasks, but the keywords were missing on all but one. I'd never heard of the subject in that one, so I gave it a miss. I did a 20c one this evening just to see how long it takes to get approved. It took me about half an hour ... I think I used more than 20c in electricity ... lol. I really prefer chatting here, I have to say.

WOW! An hour just for 20 cents, don't know what I am missing here, but something just don't seems right...I guess the tasks are in a trial period and hopefully it won't take so long to complete or they will up the payout

No I did not have the time to mylot for these past few weeks, and when I got to know about this new feature, it was still undergoing implement pre launch stage. From that time till now, I do not have the time to log in to check and it is only today that I am on Mylot after such a long time. Currently, I see only 2 tasks which has a credit of $0.10. Shucks! I guess I have missed that $3 task and apparantly a lot of people have received it. Yeah I do envy you.. You are sooo lucky!

I accepted one $3 task. It's just a test for me and see how it goes. If i did well then i will spending more time than usual accepting tasks. For now i'm still on the process of learning how it goes. My daily output for responding discussions is still the same for now.

I saw the tasks, but I was a bit weary of doing any of them until I heard feedback. Have you been paid for the task yet?

hello yaks :-) i am one of the many who wasn't able to grabbed the 3 dollar task but in all honesty, i really don't envy you ( laughs). it is because i was busy the past few days at work so i really have no time for mylot. it's alright that i wasn't able to get the task because my job is far more important to me than mylot. anyway congrats on your completed task.

Which task did you do and how long did it take you to do it? I have only checked a couple times in that link and so far the only tasks I have seen are ones about downloading a toolbar and writing a review for some old movies which I have never heard of. But they only paid 20 and 25 cents, I think, nothing as big as $3.00 so you are lucky to have found one that big. I guess I will keep checking till I can find one that I can do. Until then I will just continue to respond to other people's discussions and hopefully make enough money this way to reach the minimum payout every month.

hello.. how many $3 tasks were there? I only saw one actually and I'm unlucky enough that it's been taken up. I was unable to accept the task. Anyway, what was the task about? What did u have to do?

When I opened myLot, there were 5 $3 dollar tasks. I just took one though. I thought that it will be available all the time so I just took one. I took the one with the topic "Portable Scanners". All you have to do is to write something about the topic and that should be 4 paragraph long.
