BlueTree is releasing their paying software to 5000 members a week and claims to be paying right now. CashSpace is still beta testing but plans to launch very soon.

October 13th
  • Not really a whole lot going on in the get paid world today so here is some completely unrelated news... San Diego is truly beautiful this time of year. 75 degrees and the kind of light breeze that makes you feel ever so slightly more alive. It's also causing, as breezes do, the leaves on the trees to flicker in that unexplainably wonderful way.
  • Get paid news coming soon... if not I'll have some news for you about Santana, Everlast and Mexico.

  • Just reviewed a new program from the lottery company, CashWiz. It pays for activity on 20 levels of referrals. (review here)

  • Another new paid surfing company called CyBarCa$h launched today but it doesn't look like they're going to be worth the time it would take Gator to fill out their sign up form.
October 8th

  • The WinBe (French paid surfing) review is back. Looks like they are now paying members in France. (review here)
October 7th
  • YellowBubble (UK paid surfing company that recently acquired SharkHunt) has launched. Anyone can use the software but it looks like they're only paying in the UK, and possibly Ireland, right now. (review here)
  • Newer paid survey company, SurveySavvy is running a referral promotion in addition to their regular program... $100 to 20 members who refer 5 or more people. (review here)
  • No news about QuikDough yet. It looks like their server wasn't ready for the scheduled launch yesterday. More info later in the week. (review here)
October 6th
  • The QuikDough launch seems to have been delayed... Check back tomorrow for updates. There's a sign up link in the review but it obviously won't start working until after the launch. (review here)
  • About.com's Spedia program (not the same as the regular Spedia program) is now paying $1/hour until December, 2000. (review here)

The top three referrers will get their link permanently included in the Skeno software. (review here)
  • mValue (aka SweepSurf) is officially offline.
October 5th
  • CashSurfers most recent rates have internationals making $.14/hour. Much better rates than internationals get from some of the other paid surfing companies. CashSurfers new max hours are 120/month (4/day.) (review here)
  • One of the newer companies, MintMail, is now sending paid email. One of the quickest starts we've seen by a paid email service. (review here)
  • LottoForever is now paying and, from what they've said (and based on current rates), members should be able to make $60 to $120/month without referrals if they're willing to spend a little time every day. Sounds hard to believe but the people that run LottoForever also run another 'get paid' service which has been reliable so far. (review here)
  • ClickDough members check your profile, there were some errors during a database upgrade and info was lost for some members. You need a complete profile in order to be considered a 'premium member' so it's worth the 2 minutes it'll take you. (review here)
  • Surfing2Cash really has decided to file for bankruptcy. (Review removed about a week ago.)
  • Rumor that mValue may be going under in the near future. (No real loss if they do, not much of a company after they ended the paid surfing program anyway.)
October 4th
  • MoneyMessage is now in paying launch. Their instant message software is compatibile with ICQ, AIM and Yahoo instant messenger. They've changed their service around quite a bit and exisiting members will have to download the software and update their account in order to get credit for previous referrals (and enter the referral contest.) Looking good. (review here)
  • ProPay ($10 to sign up and $10/referral) will be discontinuing the $10 referral bonus on October 15th. This makes today a particularly good time to refer some people to the program. (review here)
  • Dollars4Mail (they pay for quite a few things) now offers a PayPal payment option. (review here)
  • The EmailThatCounts review has been updated... They are now sending quite a few paid emails and have launched the auction section fo their site.
    (review here)
October 3rd
  • New paid free offer signup up company out called GetPaidToJoin. They're from the UK and look pretty good so far. (review here)
  • ClickRebates (the ClickDough paid surfing people) are partnering with everyone. If ClickRebates happens to be in the vicinity, don't drop the soap, or they might partner with you too. In November they will be launching a new paid surfing program with About.com. No details available yet but you'll find them here when they are.

    ClickRebates is definitely on to something here (paid partnering is the oldest profession after all), you can expect them to be around for a lot longer.

October 2nd
  • PayBar rates are up... Now at $.072/hour. Pretty low but they're reliable and the ad window is small. (review here)
  • Just got the important details on Spedia's partnership with About.com... The regular Spedia service and the About.Spedia service are completely seperate. Members can have accounts with both. The bars, sadly, will not run simultaneously. Link in the review. (review here)
  • Rumors that QuikDough will be launching on the 4th. More soon.
October 1st
  • Paid start page, search and more company, Skiddily will be mailing their first round of checks on October 15th. Paid email program coming soon. Right now Skiddily is one of the best all around paying companies out there. Easily the best paid start page service. (review here)
