OK Signed up... i thought G Bonus turned to mince VERY quickly (just had a look... still is), clicked on the Now TV £5 one...luckily read the whole thing, you can't cancel after free trial you need to take out a Now TV subscription, so, in effect you are going to be paying say £9.99 but getting a fiver back, so you lose a fiver... unless you really want NOW TV.. so that one got binned, on to the Which one, £7.50 for taking a £1 trial (so £6.50) what worries me here is "Free trial must be taken in full" what does that mean? a free trial is a free trial?? maybe they want you to cancel 30 days and zero seconds after taking it out (And just hope that you can cancel it in the nanosecond space before you get charged a full subscription?? (BTW that is £103.20 if you don't manage to cancel in time... seems like this company is just giving a few quid off full subscriptions to stuff as a sweetener to me... anyone else???? am i being too cynical here?

Hi @mabozza

Thanks for signing up and taking a look around the site. I totally understand your comments above, we work direct with advertisers and the reason they offer any kind of free trial is to show off their product. Our goal is to send quality users to these sites and we would not recommend signing up to a free trial for the reward alone, with the variety on the site we hope that people will sign up to things they are genuinely interested in and will continue to use. Of course if all our users signed up to NOW TV and everyone cancelled, we wouldn't get paid which mean we couldn't pass the reward back to our user, so sad faces all round. Therefore we encourage users to continue to use the products.

We are constantly adding offers (daily) to the site, some free trials, some discounted trials. We try to be as clear as we can be within the descriptions, there are certain advertisers that won't pay us unless the users goes onto become a paying member.

Is it worth maybe having it so it's clearer on each offer page that you 'must stay a member for 2 months' in a more prominent way. In the same way topcashback always explains what needs to happen before you will get your cashback.

Aye, the absolute last thing you guys want is people signing up but pulling the plug before both you AND them get the money..

Thanks for that reply... i had assumed it was similar to some other sites that are geared more towards getting money to sign up for a trial etc... then cancel, What you are doing is cool and fine if anyone is wanting the product/service no harm in getting a few quid saved, just not what i was expecting for me.. good luck

Do you think other similar sites are more obvious about that fact and if so which ones?

It just seems odd as you would have thought OhMyDosh are under the same rules about traffic quality as say GBonus, 20Cogs etc are (infact 20Cogs and OhMyDosh are the same company I think!)

I have GBonus ..got £12 odds in there, as i recall it was sign up for trial... cancel before the end no worries... may have changed rules as that was at the very start, havent done other sites

All sites will work in a similar way with advertisers, but like you've mentioned Jon, there's things that can be done to make stuff clearer, it's just a case of working on the creatives and content that clients would like displayed etc

In my eyes, all feedback is good feedback!

I think most sites operate the same way... they just don't tell the customers and hope enough will forget to cancel and keep the site happy.

I've signed up via the link and got 50p. It says click link to confirm email address but nothing happens and no email in my inbox to click.

Thanks - I will give it another go tomorrow. Another point - sorry it is negative at the moment - I have just spent nearly 15 minutes trying to get a survey from the first sign up I did. As I was either screened out or would not do 20 mins survey for nothing I doubt I will get paid for the time.

Now have a Son in Law, and have become the 'dreaded' Mother in Law. Many congratulations to Hazel and Matt who got married on 10th August, at the Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth, North Wales. It was a fab weekend away and the most unconventional but personal wedding ever!

Messing around with Wordpress Themes FAR too late on a Sunday night!
I knew staying away from domains wouldn't last forever - just bought another one (or two)! :D
