CloverClover,

I agree. No sure why.

Hope we dont only get 3 points and they somehow manage to forget and credit the other 3.

Will this site manually credit points?

I think the reason that it takes different amounts of time for the points to credit is because the companies send out a "sign up tally" to freeslide every few days. Like for example ebay may send it out every monday, so people that sign up on saturday will get the point in two days, but people who sign up on tuesday won't get it for another six days.

Just my guess...

I hope so. That would be fine then.

I did do 6 offers. I am just hoping to get all 6.

By the way, have you received any referral points yet like you should have?

Just curious.

Why are all these links dead?

I dont even remember the link for checking into my own account. Damn. Should have wrote it down.

BDrules,

I have sent you an email through your profile asking you for correct info. Please respond. This is important.

Thank You.

Clover,

Check them out. They are all dead. At least for me.

On my screen most of the link is there, but someone removed parts of the links after http: and replaced them with

---

This is in most of the links and has killed them off for me.

Check them yourself and see if they work for you. If they do, report back.

Thank you.

Ok guys, this is kind of weird. I don't know what is going on but it seems that it is blocking sbase31.com (change 31 to 30) and replacing it with --- in the addresses. Why would it do that? Is a mod doing it? I don't know why, since there is no referral or anything in them?

Doesn't make sense really. If a mod doesn't want me to post it (and I really don't know what is wrong with it), then I'll remove the post... Again, there isn't any referral in any of those links...

Sure. I'm pretty sure just about all of them will (if you have enough money to cover the charge, of course). To them, all a WC is is a debit card.

We dont even know if this site is legitimate yet. I have checked several boards including Fat Wallet. No one has received any items and they seem to be giving them the run around.

I still have not received all my points even though I completed all the offers weeks ago.

A member of the FreeSlide staff is even posting on the thread on FatWallet. It looks like this site is super shady.

Yep,

I dont blame anyone, but I should have listened to that first guy who posted here who said this might be shady.

None of my emails have been returned and I did complete all offers in a legitimate way.

We most likely have been had.

Grrrrr!!!!!!!

Well, I went in fully knowing I may not have gotten anything. I took that risk. But, knowing how shady this ended up to be (They are getting away with this everywhere), I will now by writing to the BBB and will be reporting this site to the authorities for internet fraud.

I will also be notifying the companies for offers I completed. These companies are paying Freeslide under false intentions. Freeslide is ripping off these companies too by keeping all the commissions these companies are paying.

Maybe these companies can do something even though many of us cant.

Freeslide is commiting Fraud not only with it's customers, but also with the companies paying them. They have used the BBB as a front.

P.S. They will probably send some items to some customers to appear legitimate, but will continue to rip people off. Remember most people dont even complain due to hassel.

With all the people complaining, that means there are many more who have not said anything, but have also been taken advantage of as well.
