    No, not usually. There are a few legit sites that you do offers to get MS points, etc...

    But I have never heard of this one.

    they're legit, but they cost more to do the offers than simply buy the damn prize at a store.

    no, they don't, at least unless you do thousands of surveys/offers/whatever which take so much time; if you had just got a bloody real job instead, in the time it took, you could have afforded what you want 10 times over even on half the minimum wage.

    If you think that's long, you should give up now, because it only gets worse.

    I used PrizeRebel in the past, and racked up about 40 points in total. (not at one time, though) I got a Wii Points Card from them a year ago, just use RoboForm to fill out the surveys. It's worth it if you can devote an entire week to doing nothing but surveys.

    Actually points2shop does work from what I've experienced. They give you a free 250 points when you sign up and you can get a 1 dollar bill for 100 points and 44 points shipping. It takes like a week to verify and ship but it's a free dollar, can't really complain. They only offer the 1 dollar once though.

    so, it took you an entire week to get a wii points card? do you have any idea how much you could have made in that time from a real job? this is exactly my point, almost anything could make you more money than this shit.

    I've been a member of one get-paid-to-read-emails for 5 years (only because it's like 1 email a day, which isn't annoying enough to cancel). In those 5 years, I have gotten $50 from them. $10 a year. I made nearly three times that yearly amount working today at minimum wage for 4 hours.

    On the other hand, I also signed up for a survey site and got $10 from them pretty quickly (a couple of weeks) but it was still way too much effort for the time required. Too little payout.

    Point is, they're not worth it. If you're 13 years old and have absolutely no other way of making money, then go for it, otherwise there are much better ways to spend your time. Heck, even a lemonade stand on the street corner would pay out better.

    borrowing a dog, tearing your cloths, rolling in mud, and then sitting on a street corner probably earns more than these rip offs.

    I was twelve at the time, school was almost out, I had nothing to do. I wanted some Wii Points, so I found out about PrizeRebel. It was free... [​IMG]
