Could care less what u say about me, atleast i don't associate myself with scammers. Your children must be real proud of you. Hopefully they don't turn out like their mother.
Curt...you really are an A*S.

I got paid over $250 dollars on NetWinner in the first year they were in business. The people reading this are the ones that worked the system. I guess NW didn't account for no-life cheating scumbags on such a massive basis. Basically, you suck and everyone else who screwed them over sucks too. You'll find something wrong in all that you do.

I don't always agree with HardTimer but damn he's got a point.

While I'm on the subject..the lady from CompareRewards.com is the greatest! Did you see her on GMA defending all those hard working people who are on the online welfare program? Wow. What a great advocate we have in her.

It's hard for me to believe that there are so many people stupid enough to seriously believe they will get free money (something for nothing) from any online game site.

Then advertise their ignorance by complaining, posting how they lost money (as opposed to wasting time BY THEIR OWN CHOICE) in a bunch of forums, and even contacting authorities who don't have time (OR MY TAXPAYER MONEY) to waste on such nonsense when they don't receive winnings that cost nothing and was being given away for free to those willing to gamble some of their time.

If you enjoy playing or passing time on these sites then go ahead and enjoy as it is possible you may get lucky but keep it perspective. History shows that if these sites do pay, it doesn't last long before they change or close the doors.

People who try creating game sites that offer FREE gifts do it as a business with the intention of making a profit. Obviously it's a tough, unpredictable business and successes are few or short lived. I don't believe anyone intentionally goes through all the work, time and expense for the purpose of creating business that fails.

I also doubt that they did all this just to "rip" people off. If you believe that your doomed for disappointment in todays economy. Unfortunately, the economy is in such bad shape businesses are folding left and right. You wouldn't expect to receive a refund from one of these established brick & mortar business after they close the doors. You need to be careful as it's appearing any business is subject to failure these days.

I prefer the concept of "Personal Responsibility" for your actions and purchases.

Now it's the honest players who screwed Netwinner over. Priceless.

I didn't get my gc either, I have been waiting since May 15th, I only remember the exact date because it was 2wks and 1 day before I had my baby. It was only $25, but still I did alot of surfing on that site to earn the points. No I am not really complaining I guess, I did talk to some nice people, but BT should stick to their end of the bargain! KWIM? Its not fair and it turns people off to reputable sites out there.

Since your on the subject of the lady from comparerewards.com . I'll post a opposing reply to tlnblues comments to me the comparerewards.com refused after multiple attempts and no response to an email.

tlnblue: "I do not consider my time, resources and energy to be
"FREE" and neither has any of my employers throughout my life."

My time,resources and energy as a paid employee are not free either. However, my time spent on a websites promotional scheme is free by my own choice and falls under the category of gambling with time as opposed to gambling hard money (more similar to entering sweepstakes).

tlnblue: "When a site advertises compensation in return for certain actions, I expect them to make good on that promise. If they find that they are unable to maintain the ratio then I expect them to amend the terms as necessary. I do not expect them to ignore questions and disrespect the very people who recommended and supported them. If a company can no longer balance the books, I expect an update either via email or through the site."

Try telling that to any of this shortened list of stores in bankruptcy:

Compusa
Sharper Image
Harold's Stores Inc
Tweeter Home Entertainment Group
Boscov's
Lillian Vernon
Value City
Goody's Family Clothing
Linens 'n Things
Circuit City (last week I saw a table up front promoting their "Rewards" program).

If you actually believe what you say, you need to rush out to some of these store and start buying your Christmas gift cards now while they're still available. You can "expect" all you want but here on earth a little cautious wisdom works better.

"Gift card holders could lose more than $75 million just from store and restaurant closings in 2008, said Brian Riley, senior analyst at Tower Group, a consulting firm."

As I stated earlier: "I prefer the concept of "Common Sense" and "Personal Responsibility" for your actions and purchases." Personal Responsibility is something that's seems to have gotten lost as blaming someone else for your problems has become the norm these days.

All that's needed for someone to take your time or money is for you to let them. If you can't take the hit, best find a method your more comfortable with.

I'm a hard working person, I do my job day and out. I never leave until i finished everything I need to. However, I saw this site, I went to town. I knew it was never going to last, so I took advantage. I cashed out every time i hit 10k points for a $25 best buy card, then they made it 12,150, and then 12,500. I never got my last 2 cards, but I'm not going to complain since most sites don't even have or had a reward system that good. As for you people who say you enjoyed the site and want the gift cards, then I'm guessing you're not really there for the site, are you? Besides, I'm most of you aren't even the right age group for the baby boom generation which the site was originally made for.

The Boomertowne web site gave me many friends, some i still chat with others have gone by the way side.I to lost points for a gift card but have kept the most important things in life my friends i met there.I do not hold Boomertowne at fault for not paying out the gift cards, instead i thank them for the friends i have made.
May peace follow all those i have met, and those who tried to help give people a chance to meet new friends accross North America.
