    Yep. I've gotten so much from it, that I rarely spend my allowance when I get it, never had a problem. I heard if you click the link in my sig, something cool will happen! [​IMG]

    ive tried them before. i believe they require an activation link from your phone or something. anyhow, I clicked on it, and that months bill had some subscription service which I think was from the site.

    I've done it, gotten a few items, never gotten any charges on my phone bill or anything... Just some spam, but nothing my GMail can't handle.

    I STRONGLY prefer Prize Rebel. (link in sig [​IMG]) If you're gonna require phone activation, at least give a number that exists. I don't know how it is now, but that was very bad.

    Scaaaa-am. Even if it did work, the surveys always ask for too much personal information with non-encryption.

    When you enter your phone number to sign up, after they send you w/e they need to send you for confirmation, do they ever send you messages/call you/ w/e again? One reason I haven't gotten around to signing up is the fact that I'm afraid once I enter my number to sign up, I'll receive a bunch of calls during class. Oh, and obviously I'm not goign to give my real number when doing surveys as they actually DO call you many times.

    All you do is give gaminglagoon the real info, and give fake stuff to everybody else. I always fill out surveys with my address as 69 Nowai Ln, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

    It wasn't meant to be a trick. Why not use my referral link if you're gonna sign up? A trick would be something like this, its a website I made about gaming lagoon which masks the referral link (the actual page is not my referral link) free.stuff.is.in

    I've actually considered it myself, but...I've read that you have to submit your real information on the offers, but I could've either misread it or something. Then again, it's on the rules page so I dunno.

    Not that I don't trust you guys, just...it seems too good to be true, you know?

    They say you do but they don't check. It doesn't really matter if you fake it.

    Makes sense, as if they said to fake it right there in the rules, then no one would allow them to post offers.

    Hmm...I am interested though I don't have a credit card (and I have a suspicion that accepting and canceling offers would do damage to your credit score) so it might hook me in if I don't have to do a hundred offers to get something small.

    You can buy a visa giftcard/prepaid card from the store.

    You get around 75 cents from completing a quick survey, which, if you know your way aroudn the keyboard, take little time.

    There's a little bit of pointlessness if I'm going to use a prepaid card to get stuff for "free." =P Though yeah, I'm fairly fast with typing...I don't think it'll be too bad. Hopefully.

    I'll consider signing up after a while.

    Prepaid card = 8$, single card offer is around 10-20$ and charge usually like 1$ to make sure its a "real" card

    Is it true that I have to give out my Phone number to verify a prize? Or call them? Because I am NOT calling them.

    You call an automated system, which triggers your account to be activated.
