February 2015 Referral Program Ranking Results

Better late than never!

Due to an illness in the family that’s run from February and is still ongoing, I’m obviously very late getting the ranking results published. As you can see from my calendar, I was gone through most of the month.


I had set a low goal of $100 for myself for February, and in spite of being away so much, managed to break over this, ending the month at $167.00 with referral commissions. This is why referrals are so very valuable and appreciated. Even if you’re away from the computer, the money still comes in.

Gift Hunter Club29.002
Mindfield Online12.005

There were no changes to the ranking results last month; the money that came in still kept every site in their respective positions. I’ve had some more payments come in since the beginning of March, but I wanted to take a moment to grab a snapshot in time of where I stood at the end of February.

Due to family constraints I also didn’t get the Gift Hulk FOY First Friday codes up, but things will hopefully settle down a bit in the next few weeks, so I’ll get them posted for the first Friday in April.

For a goal for March… I’m going to have to keep it at $100 again. I’m just not online at all right now, but who knows what the next few weeks will bring. Check back in April to see how I did!



PaidViewpoint.com – Fifth Payment Received!

Name: PaidViewpoint.com

Type of program: Survey site

Date joined: 8-20-2011

Referral program? Yes. They will pay $1.00 for every referral who completes six “biz surveys”.

URL: http://paidviewpoint.com/?r=qcdsrd

Amount earned: $95.63

Paid? Yes!  Minimum payment is $15.00. Payment is made via PayPal. Payments come hours after being requested!

Paid Viewpoint Payment Proof:


Signup bonus incentives? Yes, they offer $1.10 bonus at registration when you complete and validate your signup.

Recommended? Definitely! This site is brought to us by the same people who do InstantCashSweepstakes. The founders have a history of valid and legitimate business practices and have a long term history of paying on time.

One important thing to note is the referral requirement. It states on the page that you will earn $1.00 when your referral completes six “biz surveys’. There is a difference between a biz survey and a “traits survey”, which is what I receive the most. The traits surveys seem to be general consumer profiles, which are paying $0.10 each so far. If you get a referral but don’t get paid your $1.00 right away, I wouldn’t be upset. It probably means they are still building their demographic profile at the site and haven’t been presented with a business survey yet.

GiftHulk Payment Proof:


International members? USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, and Ireland only.


Initial Impression and Review:  GiftHulk was another program I found by them following me on Twitter. This program is very similar to SwagBucks.

You earn in a number of different ways. They have the familiar Offer Walls and EZ Coins with paid videos, surveys and registrations, Daily Surveys, Crowdsourcing Tasks, “Fountain of Youth” codes, online games where the tournament leaders get points, a toolbar with additional point offers, paid searches, point sweepstakes and contests, and finally the ‘guess the card’ game, which awards various points.

Recommended? Yes – GiftHulk is definitely legit and not a scam site.

Recommended? Yes! SendEarnings is legit and not a scam. While the amount earned is low, I also don’t spend a lot of time on this site other than just the paid emails and paid searches. I definitely could have gotten paid faster if I had been more active. The site has been around for over 10 years, so it is another one that has stood the test of time.
