How to Get Offers to Credit

The main thing is to always clear cookies when working on a GPT site. Cookies are stored on your computer and hold information about your activity on different websites you visit. Our advertisers use cookies to track your signups so if your system isn’t accepting cookies, chances are you’re not getting much to credit.

To change your settings in Internet Explorer: Tools –> Internet Options –> Privacy tab. Your display should read “Accept all cookies.”

Also, check your Advanced tab and make sure that “Override automatic cookie handling” is NOT checked.

(2) You are using Netscape, Firefox, or the AOL browser

 I recommend using Internet Explorer. AOL browsers can cause your account to look like it is being accessed via a proxy and that is a big no-no. Netscape has similar results. Firefox seems to be okay for most people but if you’re new to this type of site, stick with IE.

(3) Repeating offers or doing offers in the same family

Often times people don’t get credit for freebies (or paid trials) and can’t figure out why. The problem ends up being that they have already done the offer on another site. Advertisers are paying money for new leads, not repeat customers. If they see someone that has done an offer previously on another site, they won’t pay for your lead again.

(5) You are using the same email address repeatedly

This goes back to the previous statement. New leads are what we’re getting paid for, repeat customers aren’t that enticing to advertisers.

(6) User names

Most offers, regardless of which site they are featured on, are run through the same advertisers and will not allow the same user to complete an offer multiple times.

A big question by many. How far do I go on the “xx” offer? Hopefully you can use this chart of some of the most popular offers to tell you how far to go on offers. Please remember this list is not all the offers. These are just some of the most popular ones which have multiple offers offered by the survey companies/panels. Good luck!
