CashCrate's On Facebook!

CashCrate has recently teamed up with Facebook in order to maximize referrals for CashCrate members, which is pretty cool. 

If you already have a Facebook account, all you need to do is add the Rewardza application and invite your friends to join. While CashCrate members cannot complete offers through their FB accounts, they can earn valuable referrals and even money from their friends! Check out the thread on it:

While you can only add 20 friends a day, it's a great way to spread the word about CashCrate while still promoting yourself!

Commonly asked questions about CashCrate

Ever wondered something about CashCrate? Well here are the answers (hopefully)! 

Q: How long do offers take to confirm? 

People often ask why some offers take hours or days to confirm for them, and the simple answer is that we rely on our advertisers to provide us with statistics about users who have completed their offers. Some offers credit almost instantly, but others take longer because the advertiser may give us updates only periodically. Once we receive this information from our advertisers, user accounts are updated automatically.

Q: What does it mean when an offer is Pending?

We provide the “Pending” feature only as a way for you to track the offers that you’ve done. Just because an offer is Pending does not mean it will be credited, and even if you forget to submit an offer to us, you’ll still receive credit for the offer when the company reports to us.

You may have noticed that it’s possible to submit offers to us (and give them Pending status) even if you haven’t completed them. Remember that you will only be credited for the offer when the advertiser notifies us that you have completed the offer.

Q: How long do offers stay Pending?

An offer stays pending until we receive credit for it or until two weeks have passed. If two weeks have passed without crediting, it will be removed from your Pending list and put back into your Available Offers list so you can complete it. If that same offer is eventually credited to us, we’ll credit your account regardless of whether it’s Pending or not.

Q: I did an offer and I still haven’t received credit. Why?

If you an offer hasn’t credited for you, it’s because we haven’t received credit. If, for any reason, we don’t receive credit from the advertiser, we cannot credit your account. Remember that in most cases offers confirm within a couple of hours, but sometimes they can take days or weeks. We know it’s hard to wait, but try to be patient!

Q: Why would an advertiser withhold credit if I completed the offer?

We understand it’s frustrating to do an offer and not get credit for it—it’s frustrating for us, too! There are a variety of reasons why an advertiser may not credit us for an offer you believe you completed. Here are some of those reasons:

• You didn’t complete the entire offer. If you quit half way through a survey or don’t finish an offer, you won’t be credited. For example, many sites require that you confirm your email address at the end of the registration.

• Fake or inaccurate information was used. If you use fake information when completing an offer, you will not receive credit. Using fake or misleading information is also against our Terms of Service and will result in the termination of your account. If you’re not interested in having a company know your real information, don’t do the offer!

• You’ve done the offer before. Advertisers aren’t interested in paying for the same person to try their product or service multiple times. If you’ve done the offer (or possibly even an offer from the same company) outside of CashCrate, we won’t receive credit for it if you do it again.

• You used a gift card or prepaid credit card to do the offer. If you do an offer that requires a credit card, some companies will not credit us if you use a gift card or prepaid credit card. This is because they don’t want you signing up for a trial, only to find that your card gets declined if you continue with them after the trial period.

• You canceled the offer immediately. If you sign-up for a product trial and then immediately cancel your trial, you won’t receive credit. The point of our program is that you get paid to try products and services that you’re interested in. By canceling immediately, you’re indicating that you weren’t even interested to begin with. If you’re not interested in an offer, don’t do it!

Q: I have very few offers available to me. What’s the deal?
Unfortunately the bulk of our offers are only available to those users within the United States. Very few are available to international members at this time. The good news is that we’re starting to see more and more international offers (especially for those of you in Europe and Canada).

Q: What else should I keep in mind when completing offers?

Be sure you read the Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, and any other relevant information on an advertiser’s site before you do an offer. While we try to give you a general idea of what an offer is and how much it costs, we can’t guarantee that our information is accurate or up-to-date. Be sure to check for yourself first.

Q: I had a bad experience with one of your advertisers. What should I do?

We do our best to only work with companies who are truthful and up front with our users. If you feel that a company has scammed you (hit you with frivolous charges, for example), please let us know.

If you still have any questions or just want to make a comment, please post now! Thanks for reading, hope this has helped you some. 

What is CashCrate Actually?

CashCrate (or CC) is a get-paid-to (GTP) where members are rewarded with cash for their time. It's absolutely free to join and you will never be asked for a credit card from CashCrate. When you sign up, you get a dollar instantly, just for providing your information. 

CashCrate works with several different companies and advertising networks to find offers for you to complete. When they find a company who wants to have their users try a product or service, it's listed on the site. When a user completes their offer through CashCrate, they report the completion to CC and then your account is credited by CC.

It's that Easy!

Also, you can make money just by referring new members. You can make 20% of whatever your referrals make and an extra 10% of whatever their referrals makes! It's a wonderful way to earn quick money. 

Members only need to be 13 years-old or older to join, so lots of students and underage people have done very well with CashCrate. 

I want to help you make money! So sign up today, don't waste any more time!

Here is my story:

I joined CashCrate on February 24, 2009 and made $49.09 in eight days from doing free offers and daily surveys! On March 18th, I received my first payment. Check out my February check below (pun intended): 

Then in March, I made over $125 in offers and surveys alone! I even placed 10th place in the March contest and won an extra $25, just for being a loyal member. I'm still waiting on the second check and will post it when it arrives in a few days.

In terms of April, it's being going good so far....That's all for now. Check back soon for more updates! Follow me and I will do the same for you! Help me to help you.
