Is Free Money Too Good to be True?

Some people try to make money blogging. Others may attempt to cash in on lucrative affiliate deals. While you can’t possibly make a living doing it, GPTFreebies wants you to score some extra green on the side by completing “hot offers.” Worth your time or a load of crap? Keep reading this ReviewMe review to find out.

What’s the Big Deal?

GPTFreebies bills itself as a website where people can complete a series of offers and get some “free cash” for doing so. They tell you neither what these offers involve nor how much they pay. In order to access any of that pertinent information, they force you to sign up for an account. I’m assuming that when you get to the dashboard, there will be a list of offers for you to choose from with a range of payout levels. As far as I can tell, GPTFeebies is catering to the WAHM (work at home moms) and starving college students in the audience.

Before completing this review, I wanted to sign up for an account just to see what they’re all about. However, when I went to the registration page, I got the following message:

Investigating further, the terms of service state that GPTFreebies will only work with people who reside in the United States. You don’t have to be an American citizen, I think, but you’ve got to be physically there. Given that payment is via PayPal, I don’t see why this restriction is necessary. (I’m in Canada, in case anyone was wondering.)

Um, More Info Please

There’s no FAQ. There’s no example of what you would need to do to complete an offer. There’s no indication as to how much each offer would pay. Frankly, without signing up, you know absolutely nothing about GPTFreebies. Even if you click on any of the “last 10 credited offers” at the bottom of the page, you get sent to a sign-in page. Because GPTFreebies is not up front with what they’re all about, it all feels far too fishy for comfort.

The funky animated navigation panel at the top of the page is pretty attractive and the site as a whole looks very Web 2.0, but without any useful content, this is completely meaningless and pointless.

They Need a Freelance Writer

Even though there’s not very much text on the site at all, the text that is there is very poorly written. Even the main header image — the first part of the site that anyone will read — has at least two glaring errors. I’ll let you catch them for yourself.

The three text boxes below the header image are far from perfect too. Missing articles, awkward phrasing… it’s all quite bad. They should have hired a freelance writer or at least a native English speaker to provide this content.

The last one isn’t horrible, but the first two are absolutely unacceptable.

Free Money? Free Stuff? I Can’t Say

Without the ability to take the service out for a test drive, I can’t really come to any sort of conclusion as to whether GPTFreebies is worth your while. From what I can see, it looks like another one of those cheesy “fill out a survey” or “give out all your private information” kind of “services” that marketing companies use to compile lists of victims. It’s just another paid-to-(fill in the blank) website, jazzed up with some web 2.0 attractiveness.

Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe you can score huge HDTVs, awesome PSPs, and truckloads of cash. But I find that terribly unlikely.

Any American readers want to sign up and report their findings in the comments? If it’s worthwhile, John might put up a follow-up post… maybe even with some backlink love to the first few people to give “mini-reviews” in the comments.
