Completing offers - Getting referrals - Tips and tricks

Completing offers is one of the most important things to have a complete understanding of when doing freebies. If you complete offers incorrectly, you will not receive credit and thus not be able to receive your freebie.

Before you start, you need to make sure of a few things:

  1. Use Internet Explorer (recommended).
  2. Accept all cookies.
  3. Turn off Pop-Up Blocking.
  4. Clear your cache / cookies.
  5. Ensure that all filtering software is turned off. Many filtering solutions block advertisements which might impair the ability to track your offer.
  6. Disable and “undo” any program that has preset a list of sites to not visit. For example, programs called SpyBot and SpywareBlaster pre-fills a HUGE list of sites they think is bad… some of which include advertiser’s sites. You will need to remove these sites, do your offer, then re-add the sites if you wish.


Signing Up

  1. First, make sure that you have the correct referral link.
  2. Next, make sure that when you navigate to the web page that it says “Referred by ____.”
  3. Sign up with your REAL personal information.
  4. Once you sign up, verify with your referrer that you are listed in his/her referral list.


Completing the Offer

  1. Browse through the list of advertising offers and click on an offer that interests you.
  2. Before proceeding, carefully read and print out the offer’s Terms of Service/Terms and Conditions.
  3. Use the same personal information for the offer that you used when signing up with the freebie site.
  4. Save and/or print a copy of your confirmation code/page.


Receiving Credit

  1. After completing the offer, you should receive a confirmation email from the advertiser that confirms you completed the offer and your credit card was charged (if applicable).
  2. When the advertiser of the offer sends confirmation to your freebie site, your account is credited with that “green”.
  3. After your account has been credited with the green, you are one step closer to receiving your freebie!


Crediting Issues (If you do not receive credit, keep in mind)

  1. It’s not the fault of the freebie site.
  2. You cannot receive credit by contacting the offer company. Calling them will do no good and will only imply to them that you are not interested in their product/service, but only your credit.
