Initial Review and Impression: I found MySoapBox via an offer at FusionCash. The sign up was pretty easy and straight forward, and they start you off right away with a 2,000 balance once you sign up and fill in your profile. So, that’s a good thing.
Another very good thing is the surveys I’ve been receiving are all very short, and they credit immediately. It took me just a little under a month to get 4,500 points. Actually it would have been more points than that, but there were a few surveys I missed due to being offline. The surveys have been between 250 to 1,000 points each. So, that’s good too.
Here’s a third good thing they offer that not many other sites do — multiple members in the same household are allowed to join. Wow! Most sites have a maximum of one account per IP address, much to the chagrin of some of my family members. This is an added bonus for college students, who are often very limited in the number of programs they can join because they’re on a shared college network.
A nice new addition I noticed in February 2013, the addition of a dynamic referral link! Sites that only offer an internal email way of getting referrals really make their members miss out on additional earning opportunities. I was very happy to see this added.
International members? The redemption program is set up for US members only at this point. If this changes, I’ll update.
Recommended? Hard to say for now. If you’re a FusionCash member, definitely sign up there to get an FC reward. The very rare opportunity to have multiple members in a household isn’t something to look down your nose at.
