I included PostLoop in my April 2013 sources and income as a site for income I wanted to try.( In case you are a financial voyeur, here were August's numbers, which kicked April's butt into oblivion.) So I got busy working the PostLoop system and here's what I found out.
Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. This is a nice thing for someone who is really dying to make some money and after you're tired from doing your other work for the day, you can sit around watching a show and comment on forums. You make about 10 cents per forum post you make. Once you get on a roll, it's easy to whip out 5 at a time in one forum, then move on to the next. You'd be surprised at what you have to offer!
Signing up and getting started was a PITA, but I did make $5.08 from chatting in forums like I might normally do if I had time to do that sort of thing for free. If only we got paid to post on Facebook I would be a rich, rich lady.
I cashed out with just over 100 points and my total earned was $5.08. Because my rating was higher than the average rating* I was able to cash out. I received the money THE SAME DAY in my PayPal account. Bubblews takes about a week; Fiverr takes a few weeks to see the income (although once you cash out the income comes the same day).
Of course I'm going to give you my referral link because I get 20% kickback on what you post. It's worth it for you to tell people about this program. I'm not into wasting time, and this could be a time waster as far as getting addicted to commenting in the forums, but if you're making money doing something you would normally do for free, why not?
AND if you refer a bunch of people, you end up making money just from them being in your "downline." It's like Mary Kay! Haha!
*Ratings annoy me. Anonymous people are rating you ... and I keep getting only 4 stars, which prevents me from getting into the mom forums. As the mom of 5, this is so frustrating.
Here's from their page:
