Videology on OfferToro – Find this new PASSIVE video watching on OfferWalls. YES. You really CAN earn while you sleep!!

I found a new and exciting promotion on OfferToro called “Videology.”

OfferToro is an “Offer Wall” feature that you will find at many of your favorite survey, GPT and PTC sites.

Now wait — don’t get TOO excited. At least not yet. It has darn good potential though.

At first, I noticed it about 3 or 4 weeks ago on EarnHoney. When I realized how easy it was, and how good it paid, I quickly scanned my other favorite sites at have so far found it at the following:

EarnHoney  – well, it WAS there, but then they did away with OfferToro.  🙁

Instagc  – Found under OfferToro

PrizeRebel  – Found under OfferToro

Swagbucks  – (Yes! I know!!) – I’ve not seen it for a while on SB, but when they have it it will of course be under the OfferToro ad wall.

iRazoo referal code MXPYLY –  Found under OfferToro

GrindaBuck  – Found under OfferToro

GrabPoints referal code DLB5BFC  – Found under OfferToro

ClixSense  – Found under OfferToro. This will also count towards completed offers so you can get full bonus credit from your Daily Checklist.

At first they said, and even ENCOURAGED, us to….. What…?? To let it run continuously even in your sleep? YES!! Yes, they did!

This is what it said:

VIDEOLOGY
 

Rewards after you watch 10 short videos. This offer can be completed multiple times a day, everyday!

Warning: You must keep the popup window on top and view-able on your screen.
“This offer will refresh automatically, As long as your screen is viewing the popup video, you can let this earn on auto-pilot even while you sleep!

Now they have taken out the part about letting it run in your sleep. Oh, and now you have to watch 15 videos instead of 10, and the timer runs for 45 seconds for each video instead of 25 seconds.

And when it says, “Sorry, no offers are available right now.”  REFRESH! Or, close it out and reopen it. Yes, sometimes, that all it takes to bring the magic back.  🙂

HOWEVER.

This offer does not run as smoothly as it did in the beginning. And the earnings have been lowered. And the timers have been lengthened. And now you have to do one of those pesky captchas at the beginning, and every time it crashes and you have to restart it. 

Oh, those first few days were glorious. I made a lot of money, and ran all the eligible sites I could find at once. And it didn’t crash, or get hung up on a bad video, or even tell me that inventory had run out. But in the GPT world, we know that nothing good lasts forever. Or for very long.

It’s my understanding they are working out “bugs,” and trying to find ways to prevent fraudulent activity. So, in the meanwhile, search for it every day under your favorite OfferToro walls. Sometimes it’s there, sometimes it’s not. If it is, see if it is working.

I’ve had a terrible time this past week, where it wants me to keep the mouse on the active window. I understand having a window in view, But I can watch videos while doing other things. Security guards do it all the time.

Experiment with different browsers. If I find a way to make it magically work smoothly, whilst they work on their new tweaks, I will share with you. And y’all do the same for me please.

Peace & Love,

Kim

 

 

Being patient with EarnHoney is admittedly tiresome at times, but their passive sweet nectar can be abundantly rewarding

Patience:  a virtue; typified by the capacity or ability to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry, rude, aggressive or upset. Opposite of, “Are you effing KIDDING me!?!”

Please, give this site a chance. You will love it. I promise!

Why am I heading off this post with such trepidation? Well, quite frankly, people tend to have a lovehate relationship with EarnHoney.com.

I like EH. I’ll admit, at first, I didn’t “get it” because I couldn’t get the viewability circles to turn red or green, but I like this site. A lot. So — they have growing pains. With our feedback, they are growing their site while trying to get more advertisers, and dealing with flash being phased out. I am willing to hang with them. I think they have a hell of a lot on their plates right now. They want to make money just as much as we do. Some feel as though they are being “scammed.” No. I don’t think so. Scammers usually don’t put so much time and effort forth, much less ask for feedback. Just saying. 🙂

Anyway… EarnHoney.com operates a rewards network which offers multiple ways to earn virtual currency called HoneyDollar$. You can cash out for PayPal, Amazon gift cards or donate to charity. The big draw to EarnHoney is that they offer “passive” video watching. On-line earners love to add passive activities to expand their earnings while doing surveys, mTurk or while just browsing the “interweb.”

On EarnHoney, there is no hard and set rule on device limit, but the rule of thumb is — if you can’t see it, the brands shouldn’t have to pay for it. EarnHoney has never and does not approve of any “unattended passive video watching”. However, it is possible for 1 person to look at more than 1 monitor/screen/tab. Security guards frequently have 20+ screens they are monitoring. 

bee-with-moneyThe “HoneyDollar$” they tell you that you can earn per hour is an estimate, and it changes based on desirability to advertisers (what cookies you have, where you have visited, how many times you have seen the same ads, etc.). Each EarnHoney partner chooses their own payout scheme — this is why it changes all the time. So — the HD (HoneyDollar$) touted that you can earn per hour is only a reference number due to viewability, location, machine speed, cookies present etc.

You WILL earn. As long as:

  1. You have NO ad block going on
  2. Are from the United States
  3. Are logged in. Yes. Check occasionally to make sure you are still logged in.
  4. See “viewability circles” and that they are turning color (either red or green).

In order to ensure you get the best results with EarnHoney TV be sure that:

  • Flash 10.0+ later Installed
  • Your computer has at least 1Mbps bandwidth (less then this can cause buffering or no video to occur)
  • Your computer has more than 2Gb+ of RAM
  • Any browser crashing could be to insufficient computer resources to play high quality video

Try their surveys. They are usually easy and quickly tell you if you don’t qualify. You get 3 consolation prizes per day — which is when they award you 1 HD for attempting, but not qualifying for, a survey. You get 3 a day. If you successfully take a survey, your consolation prizes start over.

If  you find that you constantly have to click the play button to get the video to start,try zooming out (using CTRL + mouse wheel down) to see if that helps.

Be aware that there is a system-wide lack of ads at the end of each quarter and at the end of every month. So don’t be surprised if your earnings drop off during this time.

You can earn 10% on referrals for as long as you are both active on EarnHoney, with no maximum limit.

What is the meaning of the green circles when watching a video?

The green circles signify when your video player is earning extra honey!  Having at least 1 green circle will double or triple your earnings.  All you have to do is to have the video player be in-focus and in-view to get green!

Their website answers this question:  Is there a Limit to the Amount of Videos I Can Watch?
And they say, “No, there is no limit. Watch as many as you like!”

HOWEVER, there is controversy about that on Reddit. You will find a wealth of information on the EarnHoney Subreddit. Check it out daily.

Redditors often complain of “banning spees.” Obeying their policies should present NO problems. If you feel you have been unfairly banned, they have a very responsive CS team. However, please Don’t use any auto-refresh or auto-reload in your internet browser to passively watch videos or to walk away altogether from your computer/tablet/smartphone. This type of shortcut is easily detected and is definitely not in the spirit of EarnHoney and not what EarnHoney was designed for.

Also, Don’t use any unauthorized software, script, bot, or mobile emulator or to try and exploit EH in any way. Cheats and hacks are also easily detected by their compliance systems and can get you permanently banned from continuing to use their site.

Finally, Don’t view EarnHoney through any third party site. Only view videos directly through EarnHoney.com or through your EarnHoney Mobile App without the aid of any unauthorized software. They tell us on their site:  “If you feel your account is ever deactivated in error, we encourage you to write in to us at compliance@EarnHoney.com to ask any questions you have, tell us why you feel you may have been deactivated in error, or to request a new account with a fresh clean start.”

How do I earn by playing free games?

By playing these free and fun games, you will earn HoneyDollar$ whenever the companion video shows a commercial.

What types of games do you offer?

We offer action, driving, strategy, puzzle and other fun games. We update our games periodically so check back often!

Can I have multiple browsers, tabs open?

You can, but you earn much more when you are able to have the videos in-focus and in-view.  

What about pay?

Redemptions will be paid out on Mondays and Fridays. Submissions during Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday CST will be delivered on the following Monday. Submissions during Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday CST will be delivered on the following Friday. When you cash out for PayPal, if you post your earnings on Facebook, you will be rewarded an extra 5%! Do it every time!

MyPoints video playlists – each LESS than 6 minutes for every 2 points! Pays better than Swagbucks playlists!

I gave in. I’ll admit I was kinda pissed off when MyPoints changed their videos from watching single videos, (which I could fly through in no time) to video playlists. Why, I don’t know, because one can NOW earn up to 500 points per day, when previously it was capped at 75.Yes. I’m one of “those” that gets all out of sorts when there is a bit of change to my routine. Another valuable thing I like is that the points now credit immediately. You no longer have to wait and wait and……

And here is a little hint: I did the math, and if you redeem for gift cards such as Target or Walmart, the $10 ones are the best value for your points! If you do PayPal, the $25 or $50 payout is your best option. AND THEY NO LONGER CHARGE ADDITIONAL POINTS TO DO PAYPAL! Yay! I keekoala-ckp cashing for gift cards out as soon as I have enough points, because I am using these for Christmas shopping.

Also, these videos pay just a bit more than SB. Each SB is equivalent to 1 cent, each 2 points at MyPoints is worth about 1.25 cent. So it’s a good alternative to Swagbucks if you are looking for one. They pay 5 points ( a bit more than 3 cents) for a survey disqualification, unlike SB which pays 1 SB (1 cent). Actually, run both MyPoints and Swagbucks video playlists at the same time! Just watch them on different browsers so they don’t interfere. Otherwise you will get the, “Slow down! You may be watching videos too fast!” message.

So — if you are into the Swagbucks video playlists, this is nearly identical. The same playlist that pays 1 SB will pay 2 points here, and so on. It really is TOO easy to not do, and the play-lists will auto-play once you’ve clicked on the first one — so long as you do not have any sort of ad blocker on. I got tired of searching for the “good” video play-lists, so here is my list of links, and I’m sharing it with you! Enjoy!  🙂

It seems (to me) that they have worked out a few of the bugs on at least a couple of the apps; and maybehappy camper (again, my thoughts) this is to thank us for hanging in there. I have noticed that many of the apps have had recent updates, and some are not QUITE so buggy. Anyway, DOUBLE your earnings on one-app-a-day this week!

I’ll take it for something I was going to do anyway!

 

From the Offical Swagbucks Blog:

MyPoints TV – Somewhat passive income, and as annoying as the Swagbucks apps

MyPoints TV

I really love the idea. I really want to earn more points without having to do surveys. (Ugh! Surveys!) But (there’s always a big butt in the way), just like with the Swagbucks apps seen here, it requires a certain amount of …. No. Make that a LOT of … damn babysitting. (According to Urban Dictionary, “damn” is an adjective you can stick in front of absolutely any noun to add a feeling of stigma to your sentence.)

MyPoints TV It will be awesome if they every work out the bugs. No wonder, it’s by Prodege LLC, the EXACT same one as with Swagbucks. Now I have a headache.

Even with all that hate that I have expressed oh-so-eloquently, I DO have the damn app installed and I WILL use it just to get some extra points. But I will go on to other things when I inevitably become frustrated. I mean, I quit my “real” job so I wouldn’t have to deal with annoying shit activities anymore.

MyPoints TV

The following is their description of it:

Official MyPoints TV App. Earn Points and redeem them for FREE gift cards.
Watch fun, fresh videos, and earn Points no matter where you are with the MyPoints TV App.
