I have a question on the terms and conditions I was hoping you could help me with.

CANCELLATION LIMITATION: You will not be eligible to receive a Gift in this Promotion if, within 60 days of your Sponsor Offer Initial Transaction Date, you cancel your participation in more than two Sponsor Offers you have completed as a part of the Program Requirements, or cancel any Sponsor Offers within 60 days of your Sponsor Offer Initial Transaction Date if you were invited by a Refer-a-Friend Offer (the "Cancellation Limitation"). The Cancellation Limitation applies regardless of whether such limitations appear in the advertiser's terms and conditions for the applicable Sponsor Offer.



If I'm reading this correctly I am allowed to cancel up to 2 offers prior to the 60 day limit. Is that correct?

Thanks so much!
Chris

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Hi Chris,

Absolutely correct.

First, just in case you didn't, always read the instructions for the parent site you are doing. In this case, a Nuitech site.

You can find my instructions at the bottom of each page via button on the online offers webpage.

Or, go here.http://moneysavingmethodsonlineoffers.blogspot.com/2008/09/nuitech-directions.html

Hopefully, those instructions explain their whole process.

But, just to give you a run down here....you do have to remain a member at least 61 days of all but 2 offers.

Due to this, I really make sure I calculate the cost of the offers for 2 months AND find ones that can keep track of all documentation in case you need manual credit to prove you were a member past 60 days.

I like offers like BMG Music, Book Clubs, Columbia House, etc when doing Nuitech sites.

Why? Because you need to stay a member for up to 2 years and buy a set amount of products.

So...you are automatically a amember past 60 days.

And, how do I keep from spending alot on these ofers?

I wait until they run Buy 1 Get 1 Sales ( every few months, it seems ) and buy then and get 50% off. Then, I buy what is popular at the time and resell on eBay.

Then, those offers usually cost be next to nothing after I resell. It is a great way to meet that 60 day requirement.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Hey Carrie!

I have finished starting all of the offers for my first site. I am interested in doing another one. I am very detail oriented and can juggle this I believe but I don't want to get in over my head. Do you think it is ok to do more than one site?

For instance, if I start another site would I be able to do some of the same offers within that site (such as blockbuster, netflix, etc) while still being a member because of superbrewards? I would like to do as many of these as possible. The upfront money is not an issue. Plus I know you said you could only do one offer per subsite or something like that. Does this mean that eventually you will run out of offers to do? I'm confused on what you can and can't repeat.

One question about superbrewards: I got "reported" (i think this means credited) on the site for one item I did NOT do. I'm not even sure what the offer was.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Hi Amanda,

I always do more than one site at a time, but I like to do them with different parent companies so I can repeat offers. I would not advise to repeat offers with the same parent company.

For example, don't have two different Nuitech sites going and do the same offer on both. Big no no!

But, if you want to have a Nuitech site going and then also a Netblue site going...and they both have the same offer ( and the offer let's you sign up again..some won't let you and decline you ), go for it.

You can have two Nuitech sites going...I have before, you just need to sit down before you start the 2nd one and make sure you have enough offers to do that aren't duplicates and that you can afford.

IN regards the one crediting that you did not do..I have only had this happen once on a Nuitech site last year. It counted towards my qualification, so it was just one less offer I had to get manual credit for...who knows why it does that! But, hey, a little extra help for you!

OnlyOnSale said...

thanks so much carrie! you're the best! have a great weekend!!!

Steph said...

So for example, I complete an offer with diet.com by signing up for 6 months. I cancel on the 61st day. The policy is to refund all the unused months minus a termination fee. By staying on for 61 days, is that considered 2 month or 3 months? And if it's three month, are you better off cancelling on th 89th day instead, to take full advantage of the service? Thank you for helping me understand this.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Hi Steph,

My recommendation would be to call them on day 61. Each company has a different billing cycle, so you would need to figure that out by calling them.

If they aren't willing to offer you a refund even though you are over the 60 day mark, then mark you calendar and keep it those extra days...since you already paid for that month. You are right, why not take advantage of the service.

Also, if you haven't gotten credit from Nuitech yet, you are better off not cancelling until you get that manual credit from them first.

Hopefully, it will just credit on its own, though.

Jenny said...

Hi Carrie,

I have a couple of questions about Nuitech sites. First, I am not sure I fully understand what getting manual credit means? Does this mean if they don't approve, you can send in all of your proof (receipts, etc.) that you are a member of a particular site or company that you should've gotten credit for?

Also, in the program requirements it says, "Before you receive a Gift Redemption Voucher the following must occur: a.) the required number of Sponsors must have reported to us that you successfully completed their offers, and b.) you have provided the required proofs of purchase." I don't understand the "b" - does that mean you have to send in the proofs of purchase to them? Is this different than manual credit?

One last thing, I know that you have to stay a member in all but 2 of the offers for more than 60 days. So, the offers that you want to cancel before the 60 days, how can you be sure that you will get credit for them if you cancel within their trial period -- is this clearly written out as far as what you have to do to receive credit from each offer?

I am about to jump into the superbrewards and just trying to best educate myself before I start.

Thanks so much!!

Jenny

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Jenny,

You are correct. Manual credit is when you have to send in copies of credit card statement, receipts, etc to prove you did sign up and remain a member. You only have to do this when credit does NOT come thru on it's own. So, hopefully only a few of them.

The second part if refering to the same thing. You either have to a. get your credit thru approval OR b. you have to send in manual credit if it doesn't come thru on it's own.

The two you decide to quit early, you can't guarantee you will get credit naturally. BUT, you can still get manual credit proving you signed up, even if you don't have proof of 60 days ( since you don't need 60 day proof for those ). Does that make sense? Hard to explain.

Jenny said...

Oh, ok, so on the 2 that you can cancel, you can still submit for manual credit because it says in their terms that you are allowed to cancel 2 before the 60 days. I understand that. And thanks for clarifying what manual credit is =).

Jenny

Jenny said...

Hi Carrie,

Are you sick of me yet? =) I have another question...am I able to do two offers that are from the same "sub-parent" (I don't know what to call it..) company? IE, Columbia House and the Disney Movie Club? Or, two of the coffee offers? For some reason I was thinking that we can't do that, but now I can't find where I read that, so maybe I just dreamt that up.

Thanks,
Jenny

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Not sick of you at all, Jenny! Love helping people out with this.

In the past ( do always read the terms/conditions for your site, as they can change often ), you can do offers from the same parent company...such as BMG, Columbia House, etc.

Where you read that was under I-Deal sites. On their sites, you cannot...but on Nuitech sites, which is what you are doing, I have never had a problem and have done those companies together in the past.

Again, though, do a quick read over today on the terms/conditions, though. :-)

Jenny said...

HI Carrie,

I've completed 9 of the 10 offers I need, but the last one I'm trying to do (been trying to do it all morning) is unable to load. I was reading all of the restrictions on it last night, so it was loading then, and I have done all of the other offers, so I know it's not my computer. Have you had this problem before? I could, as a last resort, choose another offer, but I really don't want to have to do that! =) Should I just wait a bit and see if it comes back up? Maybe their website is really busy right now? Or maybe this offer isn't available anymore?

Thanks,
Jenny

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Hey Jenny,

I would give it one more day..BUT, if you check it tomorrow and the offer still isn't pulling, I would do another. Well, really, you could probably give it to Monday.

Once in a great while, the offers are no longer available, BUT they haven't pulled them down off their webpage yet.

But, you also don't want to waste too much time, either.

Megan Reynolds said...

Hi Carrie,
I began the superb rewards $1000 card a couple of weeks ago. As of now, 8/10 of my offers have reported. I just assumed this meant I would have 2 do manual credit on the other 2. But I got an e-mail from the company that said something like my offer was expiring and I needed to do 2 more offers. Is this the normal way things go?
On to another question- I am allowed to cancel 2 offers before the 60 day mark. I assume I should cancel ones that have already reported, right?
Thanks so much!
Megan

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Megan,

I just went out and read the terms/conditions to see if they have changed anything ( which they sometimes do ), and sure enough, it now says all offers must be completed by 60 days ( starting to sound like I-Deal ) and you have 180 days to complete the rest of the process.

Looks like they just updated it all at the end of August.

And, I don't see mention of Manual Credit in their terms anymore. Hmmm! Not sure...unless I skipped over that part.

When is your 60 days up actually, do you know? Or, what does your letter say?

If it is by Monday, then do your 2 replacements pronto.

If you have a week or two yet, then I would wait and call them on Monday and see if you can get manual credit for the other 2 offers, or if they have discontinued that option. Manual credit is the best way to go.

But, once you send them the details...stay on top of them almost every other day to make sure they got it and credit it before your 60 day mark.

I am going to log in and check my SPAM, because I did not get that email, BUT I still have a few offers left to approve, too. I wonder if I just missed my email.

If they still give manual credit, get all the info mailed or faxed into them Monday. Do delivery confirmation if you need to send.

Also, on the 2 you need to cancel, I would pick any. You probably are better off with the ones you already got credit for, since you need to try and get manual credit for the other 2 but really...it is up to you which 2 you choose.

Let us all know what happens.

I am going to try and call them on Monday, too.

Megan said...

Hi Carrie,
I actually started the process on 9/26, so I have a long time to go yet. The e-mail that I received is actually the exact same e-mail I received when I registered: thank you for registration, you are well on your way to earning, so get started, etc. The subject line in it just says "Your registration for Visa $1000 Gas Card is Expiring". It was in my spam folder, too.
I'll definitely be giving them a call Monday, too. I hope it all still works out!

Thanks,
Meg

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Megan,

We will still be fine, as long as we still abide by these new rules.

This is another great example of why to check your account regularly ( with all the different companies ) because they can all change terms, etc at any time.

I have a feeling why that email is coming thru is since they changed the terms, they need to ensure they are letting everyone know about it ( or they would have an uproar on their hands ).

So, this is there way of notifying everyone that we now only have 60 days to get all offers.

I am going to see what they say on Monday, but I am almost to the point I would rather just do 2 more offers, then wait to the deadline to get manual credit.

But, I am one of those "rather be safe than sorry" type of gals.

I will definitely let everyone know what I figure out.

Chris and Don said...

I have another question! I cancelled one of the offers I had signed up for and when I check my status it now says that the offers are not complete (before they all said completed!). Do I just need to get manual credit for the one I cancelled?

Thanks again for your help,
Chris

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Yes, you will have to get manual credit if it no longer says complete.

As soon as you hit the 30 day mark, call Nuitech and explain what happened. That this was one of the 2 you decided to cancel and you need to get manual credit.

Then, send the paperwork they need into them immediately. Call them by the end of the week if you don't see your credit reissued and see what is up. You don't want to get to close to the 60 day mark.

Anonymous said...

Hello! I figured out how to post!

I have a question. I am doing the $1200 credit for 1 year offer, and so far I still need to do "4" more out of 15. What this actually means is that these companies, even though I've been billed, have not "reported" to Nuitech yet. Is it important that I call them to report to Nuitech, or is it possible that they will give me the credit, and I don't need to contact them just to "report" on my offers page?

Thanks,
Amanda

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Hi Amanda,

Never call the company...they are clueless. In fact, in the terms/conditions it says not to call companies directly.

This is because they are probably using a 3rd party affiliate progrom that works with the sponsor and they need to go back to THAT company to get manual credit.

What you need to do to make sure you get credit with Nuitech is this.

1. Keep all copies of credit card statements, receipts, emails etc showing you signed up with that offer.

2. Once you hit the 30 day mark from when you signed up for the offer, call Nuitech and request manual credit. They will have you either mail or fax documentation showing you signed up and need manual credit.

3. Once Nuitech receives your documentation, they will issue you manual credit.

4. Once your account hits the 60 day mark, Nuitech will issue you the forms you need to fill out to turn back in for your gift.

Let me know if you need additional information regarding the process.

Basically, you are waiting for the magic 30 day mark to request your manual credit.

Let me know how it goes.

Alexis said...

I just read your post from this past Monday about the Superb Rewards $1000 online offer, and I'm very interested in starting it, but I wanted to make sure I pick the right one. Looking at the links on the side of your page, is it the one on the left "Which economic issues are important to you?" gas card offer? I wanted to check, b/c it says it's a BigWin offer, and I wasn't sure if that meant it wasn't the Superb Rewards offer.

After reading some posts, it seems like you signed up a while ago for it - is it too late to get in on this? You have a bunch of others posted, so I'll just jump on something else if I need to. And for Consumer-RewardZone - it finally updated that they got everything - I should have my gas card by the beginning of December - yay!!!
Thank you for all you do!!

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Alexia,

Glad everything is going smoothly on Consumer Reward Zone.

For the Superb Rewards, you need to go to the right hand side bar.

Then, scroll down to you see Nuitech Sites.

That 2nd sentence, Running Low? How Would You Like FREE* Gasoline for a Year, is the link to the $1,000 for Superb Rewards.

Alexis said...

Carrie -
Thank you so much for the quick reply! I found it!!

I look forward to starting it this week. :)

Alexis

Hello Carrie!

For Nuitech, once all of my offers say "reported", and they send me a form, can I then cancel memberships that I no longer want? Or is it like I-Deal, and offers will have to also say "credited" after their 60-day mark?

Also, around tax time, are you able to deduct the amount of money that you spent to get the deal in order to save some on taxes?

Thank you so much for your help! It is wonderful having you as a resource:).

~Amanda

Lisa in ND said...

Hi Carrie,

I'm almost done with my first Nuitech offer (SuperBRewards). I requested and received manual credit for two offers and my 60 days will be up at the end of this week. My question is this: Once I hit the 60 days, will I need to provide proof that I stayed 60 days with all but two of the companies by providing copies of statements with transactions dated AFTER the 60 day mark. In other words, I my BOMC bills on October 24, and my 60 day mark is October 25th, do I have to remain a member for another month so that I have a statement to prove I was a member for the entire 60 days? I hope this question makes sense. I was hoping to be able to cancel everything after the 60 day mark but now I am not so sure.

Thanks! I'm looking forward to about $500 profit from my first offer.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Lisa,

Sorry for the delay in answering. I posted your comment...then thought I answered...then today discovered I hadn't. Egads!

Anyway, your question makes perfect sense.

In the past, if they are already approved you did NOT have to provide proof. BUT, that is not to say things haven't changed since the last time I did a Nuitech offer.

And, I was always one to play is safe. So, when I would call to cancel..I ALWAYS ask for a cancellation email. That way, it has the date and a cancellation confirmations # ( if they provide this ) that I can provide as proof that I stayed on past the 60 mark date.

IF they cannot email you a cancellaiton email ( most can...only a few a run into don't ), then it is really up to you whether you want to cancel or wait until you get your forms.

All I can really tell you is from past experience it has never mattered before...once they were approved. But, truly try to get documentation if you can.

Steph said...

Carrie,
I am doing a Nuitech offer and my 60 days is up tomorrow. I had started Children's Book of the Month Club on 11/14 but never recieved books or email or anything. I called my credit card, they said, there is a pending charge from them on 11/14. It seems to me that it should not take this long to send the product. I just hope that once it ships they don't charge my account on the day it ships instead of 11/14. I started Disney Movies just in case but it is the same deal, no confirmation email or anything. Have you ever had this experience with these or other companies. Thanks, I am freaking out by the way. STeph

Megan said...

Hi Carrie,
I am doing the $1000 offer thru superb rewards. I'm going to hit the 60 day mark this weekend. When I click on check gift status, it says something like that they have received sponsor reports, and that when 60 days are up I'll be notified to submit documentation to prove that I stayed a member for 60 days. It says that documentation can include credit card statments. I know my credit card statments run way behind. For example, my statment I got yesterday has one of my charges for this offer from a month ago. Does this mean I have to wait another whole month to receive these statements and turn them in? I see in a previous answer you talk about cancellation e-mails as proof you stayed thru 60 days, so is that an option here? I hope that question is clear! Thanks in advance.

Jenny said...

Hi Carrie, I am on day 71 for Superb Rewards and it says this when I sign in, "YOU ARE ALMOST THERE...LESS THAN 30 DAYS TO GO!

Our records indicate you have less than 30 days left before you fulfill your commitments as per our Terms and Conditions. Once the 60 day timeframe has passed you will be prompted to submit documentation to validate your full participation in the sponsor’s offer(s).

Acceptable documentation will be as follows:

Your Billing Statements (with the account number blacked out) showing the transactions, that reflect your participation with the sponsor(s) for the past 60 days.

Please begin collecting the documentation at this time.

STAY TUNED and please remember to check this site for updates regarding your gift redemption status.

Thank you,
Customer Support"

I am concerned that they haven't contacted me yet to submit this documentation and I am wondering if I have to have it to them by day 90. If so, I am hoping they contact me soon regarding this. What should I expect?

Thanks,
Jenny

Chris and Don said...

Hi Carrie,

I'm at the end of my offer. Everything has been approved and they called to tell me that the gift cards are being processed. They also sent me a VIP offer for $250 which requires 30 day membership and 5 offers completed. Do you recommend doing these VIP offers as well?

Thanks,
Chris

skyfly21 said...

Hi. I know this will probably seem like a very obvious question, but I wanted to ask it anyways. I am doing the gas card deal and I mailed in my certificate. My account stuff still says approved, and on the bottom it says " You have been approved by the sponsor(s). Your redemption certificate was processed on Dec 29 2008 2:27PM. Your free gift will be mailed out within 6 to 8 weeks of the processing date.

-- Thank you."
I"m guessing I just now sit around and wait the 6 to 8 weeks and I'm all done with everything, right?
Thanks again for all your help.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

That's right...now you just sit back and relax. :-)

Mark the 8 weeks off on your calendar, though, so in case it doesn't show up by then, you can email them.

Kristin said...

Hi Carrie,

I am loving these online offers. I am considering doing one of the larger dollar amounts, but I have a question about the referrals. When the T&C require you to have 2 others go through the offer process, does that mean that they also have to have 2 referrals? At what point does the chain stop? By the way, I haven't really kept you up to date. Last year I received $1000 and I started a Nuitech site for another $500 (they take forever!) and I just completed another IDeal site for $500. You have no idea how much this has helped me out! THANKS!

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Kristin,

So glad you have received your $1,000 and are doing so well with these. Aren't they addictive?

If you do referrals, in the past, as long as the people you referred did all the offers, you got credit. So, whoever doesn't get referrals will be the ones the chaina stops with.

Just make sure you find 2 people who will do all their offers! Otherwise, you have done all yours and will get nothing.

Kristin said...

Thanks Carrie, one more question. If my referrals do all of the offers, do they also have to do referrals to get the reward? Or will they get the reward also just by doing the offers?

beegeegigi said...

Hi Carrie,
Nevermind, I found my answer about doing the same company with different offers. Sorry for the repeat question!

Jenny

Rachel said...

Carrie: I have done two I-deal offers and want to start a Niutech site. I looked at the offers listed on your site now - I see a $1500 one and several $500/$250 ones. Are there any $1000 offers available?

What do you think would be more worth it, a $500 offer (total of 8 requirements) or the $1500 offers (15 requirements), keeping in mind that this is my first Niutech site.

I don't know why I am having such a hard time but I am so nervous about the Niutech. It seems so much more complicated than I-Deal for some reason.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Rachel,

Well, obviously the $1,500 is less offers for your money.

If you did 3 $500 offers to get to that $1,500, it would be 24 offers. So, quite a few more.

BUT, doing 15 at once is a MUCH larger dollar investment..especially since you need to remain a member past 60 days for all but 2.

So, the question comes down to how much are you willing to invest and how confident are you?

You can log in and check all the offers out too, to see how many are cost efficient, as well.

It really is hard to advise, since every family is different.

I, myself, plan to start the $1,500 one ( although I still need to log in and check all the offers out, etc, to make sure it is worthwhile ). But, if so, that ones makes more sense for my family.

Rachel said...

*Big sigh* Ok. I think I am going to go for the $1500 one as my first Nuitech site. I talked to my husband and the OOP isn't going to be a problem. I think the 8 offers at I-deal was a piece of cake, so 15 doesn't sound TOO bad, (yet anyway, lol!) Just want to make sure on a couple things:

1. You are positive this is a legit one?! I just read the terms and conditions and didn't see anywhere where it says "Nuitech," I only saw Net Radiance mentioned.

2. You probably can't say this, but I want to make sure I am just going to get a check sent to me instead of them like sending money to my mortgage company or something. The button on your sidebar says "1500 in cash" but in the T&C it doesn't say what format the gift will come in.

Sorry for being a nervous nellie and debbie doubter! Do you think I am crazy for taking on this big of an offer as my first experience with a new company? Please be honest :)

Rachel said...

**just leaving this comment so I can get any follow-up comments emailed to me** thanks!

Anonymous said...

Carrie,

I am running out of time to complete the offer I started (60 days is tomorrow--thought I had awhile longer) If I don't complete it, can I just let it expire and start a new one without penalty?

thank you!
jennifer

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Jennifer,

If it expires tomorrow and you haven't started any of your offers, I would just let it expire

You are too close to the wire and something could go wrong

You should be able to sign back up. I would recommend maybe signing up with that site again as your spouse/different email address and then starting the process....just so you don't run into any problems.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Hi Rachel,

It is nerve wracking...I will give you that.

If you take this on, you need to know exactly how much out of pocket is going into it upfront. Figure it all out and make sure you are OK with it.

Is this a legit company? I have worked with them for 3 years now and have now had a problem.

Can I promise you will get your money? I never can. With anything in this economy, a business could go bankrupt tomorrow, I suppose. All I can go on is past experience.

On that same token, if you can afford to front the money, you should be OK. Just remember, things can go wrong. There have been a handful of people DQ'd from IDeal recently for not following instructions and duplicating offers.

If you are detail oriented, you should be fine.

The expectation is this $1,500 will come thru if you follow all the instructions.

Want to make sure this company is defintiely Nuitech?

Whether you get a check or it goes to your mortgage, I am going on past experience again. I have always gotten checks and the first page of the ad says $1,500 cash for your mortgage...which I take to mean they give you the money.

You can always email them to check. Just tell them you aren't comfortable providing your mortgage account number for them to apply the $1,500, is it possible to have the money sent to you first.

Is this definitely Nuitech? I assume so. :-) All Nuitech sites have that same Davie, Fl address, so unless another company moved in..it is the same company. The website is exactly the same for all their sites and they all have the 60 days rule...those are the usual clues they are Nuitech.

Anonymous said...

Carrie,

Thanks for your help! I called them and they assured me it would still work out if I completed all the offers today but to me it's too risky.

Question for you, all the sites are in Davie, FL but they are different, giftrewardzone, travelncs etc---so I can sign up for 2 at the same time as long as I don't duplicate offers right?

thank you!

Jennifer

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Jennifer,

Yes, you can do many sites with them at once.

And, they don't have the duplication rule, as far as I know. Read their terms/conditions to make sure they haven't changed, please. I haven't read them in awhile.

I don't mean you can do BMG Music again and again, BUT you shouldn't have to worry about doing BMG and Columbia House.

Make sense?

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Kristin,

On Nuitech, the referral is just an option. You can choose to do all your offers instead, if you want.

Your referrals should have the same option, too.

But, they will have to complete all their offers for you to get credit.

Um....so my question is, what is the processing fee per mag? There is no other place to find this out, just an order button! Thanks again, have you had any issues with them?

Kami said...

Carrie,

I've started the $1500 "mortgage" site. I have to say I'm a bit nervous since my initial outlay is the biggest ever - around $550. My I-Deal sites were all under $100 each.

Here's a question - have you ever had trouble with the offer going through? I thought I did one offer, but I'm not sure it went through. My credit card doesn't show any charges from it. And now it isn't on the "gold" offers page anymore. Do you think I should just wait a few more days to make sure and then do a replacement?

Thanks!

Kami

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Kami,

I would not do a replacement yet.

Offers will come and go, but as long as it goes thru when you sign up you will be ok.

The thing to do, since they will give you manual credit, is to make sure it didn't go thru.

This may have happened...it could just not have processed. But, before you do a replacement you will want to call or email that company on Monday to see if it did process and also call your credit card company to check ( they may have denied it...since they sometimes put holds on offers once you do too many at a time )

If it appears from all angles that the offer did not process, then do another. But, exhaust all avenues on checking first since you can get manual credit.

If you find out it did process, then call Nuitech to ask why it isn't showing up on your account page.

This response is to Misty, who had a question about Magazine Burst. If you run a quick google search on them, you'll find that many people discovered the processing fee was several times the advertised cost. :(

Misty said...

Thanks anonymous! I also found this out and called and cancelled, and did another, cheaper offer. Has anyone had problems with Disney Movie Club? All I had to print out was a rectangle that said thanks for joining Disney Movie Club. It has not billed my credit card (been about 24 days), and I haven't received anything in the mail (I've received everything else I've signed up for). I don't want to try for manual credit since I can't prove I paid...since I haven't!

Emily (Laundry and Lullabies) said...

I hope it is ok to leave a comment like this - I just wanted to warn readers away from SeattleCoffeeDirect and DaniJewelry. Both are owned by the same company, Peel Inc. This company has a BBB rating of *F* (as bad as it gets). They have a couple of thousand complaints against them, hundreds regarding improper/unauthorized billing.

I am currently disputing unauthorized charges of over $300 with this company. They keep telling me it will be refunded, but nothing happens. Very, very frustrating.

Just a warning. I don't want others to have to deal with this.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Emily is a pro at this ( she had done multiple offers ) so she knows how to dispute these charges, I believe.

But, for all other readers THIS is EXACTLY why I never recommend using Debit Cards.

With a credit card, Emily can now dispute the charges and never have to pay them.

Always keep contact info, phone numbers, dates you cancelled, cancellation #'s/emails. Or, if you can't get thru to cancel, always make notes of when you called or emailed and what happened.

I send this info to my credit card and they take the charges off and work with the company regarding unfounded charges and I never have to pay a dime of them!

DON'T use debit cards!

Emily, thanks for the heads up!

Casey said...

I just started the $500 Visa gift card through the link on this page for Nike and Adidas. I completed the offers two days ago and every offer except for one is reported! I even have one completed that I did not complete. Also the terms and conditions state that you cannnot cancel more than two within 30 days not 60!
Casehy

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

That is WONDERFUL!!! I didn't realize they switched it to 30 days.

I wonder if they are doing that across the board. I will have to check.

Thanks for the heads up!

DeannaB said...

Hi Carrie! Thank you for your great site! I am working on completing a Nuitech offer, and it's time to send in the "proofs." Two questions--Should I send this packet with delivery confirmation? Also, do I need to send in copies of cancellation emails for the things I kept over 60 days?

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Hi,

Personally, I always send w/ Delivery Confirmation. I just like having the proof they got it.

I also send the proof, too. I would rather they have everything up front.

Tiffanie said...

Are there any of the higher offer nuitechs like the 1000 or 1500 still available?

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

I haven't seen any, but I am keeping my eyes open! I will post as soon as I find one.

tiffanie said...

Hi Carrie,

I was wondering what you thought of the bonus offers that pop up after you've completed all your offers in one of the companies. There is a 42" samsung plasma tv offer that comes up after the nuitech 500 visa gift card that i would love to try if you believe it to be just as legit as the visa gift card one. Thanks for your time.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Tiffanie,

I have actually never looked at the bonus offers. I just do what is necessary and then stop.

If you have the direct link to the offer, you can email it to me and I can see if it is a company I have heard of before and whether it would be worth it. I don't mind researching for you!

Renee Richins said...

I think I found a good Nuitech offer.
http://www.onlinerewardcenter.com/rd_p?p=147728&c=21784-gas1yr1000gc_720_flashcongratsa&a=13130
It gives you a few choices of a $1000 gift card.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Renee,

Just be careful you know you found it from a valid source ( did you find the image advertisement somewhere? )

The only time I have ever been DQ'd was with Nuitech after I spent a lot of money.

It was because I found a link on someone's site ( just the link, no advertisement ) and towards the end, they told me that someone had played with the link's code to get a gift they liked, so it wasn't valid.

I got nothing!

Let us all know if you got it from a valid image. Thanks!

This would be a great offer, if so!

Renee Richins said...

Carrie,

I found it on this site. I'm not sure how to tell if it's valid or not.

http://mergemedia.net/offers/freebies/100_free_gas_card.html

Is there somewhere I can go to look for these?

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Renee,

I went there and there link is thru hitrelay.

I can't find anything on that company, can you?

I think your best bet is to simply call Nuitech and ask if this is a valid url or if it has been tampered with in the past.

Just explain you have had some friends DQ'd because they used a link they found online that had been altered to get different gifts.

As long as they tell you it is OK, you should be fine. Make sure to get the name of the person you talked to, and day/time, etc.

Tiffanie said...

Hi Carrie,

I came across some sites that are 1000, 1500, and plasma tv's etc. and wanted your thoughts on these. I can call on monday and ask them if the link is valid as well, correct? Here's the links

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

They all look good. So, I would just call them to ensure they are valid leads and you should be good to go.

Tiffanie said...

If someone has suggested not using a certain offer because of unauthorized payments do you suggest avoiding them too, or just watch your credit card bill closely and then report it to the credit card to get the unauthorized amount returned? I ask because I'm only one or two offers away from being able to do another gift card right now, but it's the offers that have been suggested to avoid.

Emily (Laundry and Lullabies) said...

Hey Carrie,
Just wanted to let you know that my dispute with Peel, Inc. has been resolved. They refunded everything (in fact, they refunded more than I asked them for!) after I opened a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

Once I quit trying to deal directly with the company, it was quite simple. :) Thanks for teaching us to keep all our documentation!!!

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Not a problem. Documentation is so easy to keep if organized and so essential in getting refunds, etc.

And, the BBB is a great organization. I always try to work with a company directly first, and if they aren't willing to work with me, then I go thru the BBB.

Usually you get a pretty quick and wonderful response once you go thru the BBB. Plus, it is a great way for companies to show they are willing to work out disputes and get a good ranking on the BBB site.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Personally, I have done offers that others have suggested to avoid and do EXACTLY what you state. I watch my credit card to make sure unauthorized charges don't come thru on it.

I also copy and past the terms/conditions from the offer when I am getting ready to do it ( so I have it for documentation ) and I do a screen print of the offer showing the deal.

I love credit cards! If you have documentation, you ShOULD be fine.

Of course, I always try to call the company firs to work it out with them. Many times, they would rather refund the unauthorized charges vs. then get a ding against their names with the Credit Card companies.

MelanieKS said...

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that in my recent dealings with Nuitech, I needed to submit multiple offers for manual credit. Upon talking with Renee in customer service, I discovered that even though I had five offers completed that didn't credit, Nuitech has a "company policy" of only crediting up to four offers manually.

When I further questioned her about where I might find this policy in their terms and conditions, she asked her supervisor and then relayed the information that it is not in their terms and conditions. It is just "company policy".

Just thought that your readers might like to know that even though they complete the offers, there is a chance that they might need to do more than what is required, even with the manual credit. I ended up needing to do an additional offer in order to make sure all was credited within the appropriate time frame.

Thanks for your wonderful website! It has been a blessing to my family and me.

Melanie

Benjamin said...

Hi Carrie,

I am starting my first Nuitech offer and I wanted to know if you had any info on diet.com as one of the offers? They have a free membership, and a paid membership. I'm not sure whether I'm required to become a paid member or not. If anyone else has done this, let me know!
Thanks,
Benjamin

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Benjamin,

Every time I have ever done Diet.com, I have always had to pay. But, that is just my experience.

With Nuitech, you will need to be able to provide proof you were a member for at least 30 days, which is usually credit card statements, etc ( with your #'s blocked out, of course )

Emily (Laundry and Lullabies) said...

Carrie,
I just re-read some terms and conditions for a Nuitech site (brandsurveypanel) and currently their cancellation policy reads

"CANCELLATION LIMITATION: You will not be eligible to receive a Gift in this Promotion if, within 6 days of your Sponsor Offer Initial Transaction Date, you cancel your participation in more than two Sponsor Offers you have completed as a part of the Program Requirements. If you were invited by a Refer-a-Friend Offer, you can't cancel your participation in any Sponsor Offers within 6 days of your Sponsor Offer Initial Transaction Date (the “Cancellation Limitation”). The Cancellation Limitation applies regardless of whether such limitations appear in the advertiser’s terms and conditions for the applicable Sponsor Offer."

Only SIX? I know it used to be 60, and then changed to 30, but have they really dropped it to SIX?

Am I crazy? ;)

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

That would be AWESOME! When I first started doing them, they didn't have any requirements at all.

They changed it to 60 when too many people were cancelling them right away without trying them.

Maybe they have seen a big drop in users since those requirements, so they are trying to make it more doable!

I will research more tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

I was just wondering what Renee and Tiffanie found out about those links they posted...are they valid links?

Also, is there a limit to how much you can do in a certain time period like there is with I-deal ($1000 per subsite in 6 months)?

Thanks!
Krystal

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Krystal,

I don't know what ever happened with the links. If they called and what they told them.

You could always try calling them to see.

In the past, Nuitech did NOT have a limit like IDeal.

But, always read terms before you start again.

Nuitech just recently changed their terms, and can do it again at any time..so you always want to make sure you know for sure before you start.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Carrie! I read through the terms and did not find any mention of a limit or waiting period. If there is no limit, how will it work when you do more than one offer. I thought I read in your Q&A that you can't do the same offer from two different Nuitech sites...am I right? So if you do too many Nuitech, won't you get down to only a few different offers (especially on the Platinum page), and if you can't repeat them you would be stuck.

Thanks for your help and this awesome blog! BTW - I already completed an I-deal offer and have sent off my certificate...just waiting for them to get it and send my $500!

Krystal

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

You will want to check back frequently to see what new offers they have out there.

The reason to not duplicate actual offers is that the specific company usually won't let you.

For example, if you have done Blockbuster, and try to sign up for it again, it will recognize you as a past member and ask if you want to reinstate your membership ( which will not qualify for credit ).

So, you just need to make sure there are enough offers before you start the process. But, they usually do add new options periodically, so always check back.

Julie P. said...

I would like to do my first Nuitech offer now after I just completed my fourth I-deal offer. My question is can I sign up for a company (such as Blockbuster) under the Nuitech offer if I have already signed up for and cancelled Blockbuster on one of my I-deal offers? It would be signed up under different e-mail addresses.

Anonymous said...

The new Nuitech rules specify only one gift per person per year. So does that mean I can only do one Nuitech offer or that I can do one offer per Nuitech subsidiary?

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Which site are you looking at?

For example, one of them I pulled was for rewardaisle.com and here is what it says...

Only one gift is permitted from rewardaisle.com per person and/or household for one year after your registration date.

This means you can only get one gift from THAT site per year. This is actually an improvement, as it used to be only one per site FOREVER!! So, good news.

But, if you are on a site that says something different than the url ( the url is rewardaisle.com for this offer, but the one you are looking at might be different ), then let me know.

But, you should be fine to do other Nuitech sites as long as the URL is different and that phrase I copied has a differen web address/url for each terms/conditions.

Hope that makes sense!

Anonymous said...

This is for NationalSurveyPanel.com. Here is the exact wording- "Only one gift is permitted from Net Radiance per person and/or household for one year after your registration date."

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

OK..so what that means is you cannot do NationalSurveyPanel again in a year OR another site with Net Radiance in the terms. Not all of them do, so you can potentially do another Nuitech site.

Anonymous said...

I started a Nuitech offer for a $250 gift card on 1/8. All but one offer has been confirmed. I sent in the paperwork for manual credit and I'm waiting to hear back about it. Anyway, I received another email today asking me to send in all my emails, invoices, credit card statement, etc... for ALL of my offers! What is this all about? Thanks.
Melinda

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

That is the paperwork to verify you stayed a member past 6 days on all but 2 of them.

So, just send them the paperwork for the offer showing how long you were a member..make sure dates are included.

Robyn said...

Hi Carrie,

I sent in all my paperwork last week (and saw that it was delivered) and I'm just wondering about how long I should expect it to take them to go through all of it before they send me a voucher to print? Thanks!

Robyn

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...

Robyn,

My standard rule for myself is usually about 2 weeks from my confirmation.

If I don't hear from them by then, I call to get an update.

But, you can feel free to call before that, if you would like an update sooner.
