Unite Trade payment - final update

Today is the day my 7-day Unite Trade investment period came to an end. I can happily report that I made a profit, although it's only a $1. Here's a nice bar graph that the website provided me with:

As you may recall, I initially invested $5 into Unite Trade, an HYIP site. I was on a 7-day plan, which is pretty much the the only plan you get with a small investment like that. I had some doubts along the way, thinking that maybe Unite Trade is a scam, but I was then reassured by their customer support that everything was going the way it was supposed to. And today is the day when I got returns on my investment:

So there you go. I made $1 with Unite Trade HYIP site after a 7-day investment. If you would like to try it for yourself, you can read this post to see how. However, invest at your own risk. Returns are never guaranteed with HYIP programs. A lot of them turn out to be a scam. Unite Trade, however, seems to be legit.

Unite Trade update 3

Wow, that was quick. I just received a response from the support team about my question:

Well then, that explains it. I guess in 3 days we'll find out how much I'll make, if anything.
Wow, that's 3 updates today. I'm on a roll, hahah.

Kooday launch delay

Today was supposed to be the day when Kooday would launch some of their search engine features. The site did go down for a while, with a message stating that they were making some important updates to their database. However, when Kooday went back live, there wasn't a single change noticeable on the site. No promised facelift, no functioning search engine, nothing..

Less than an hour later, this message appeared on the front page:

"Houston we have a problem" ... sound familiar?

Kooday's new website will be delayed.

Kooday needs a few more days to get this right. An update will be given late Monday or early Tuesday. The weekend will be used to determine a solution. We are on top of it and there will not be a long delay to get this fixed. In the mean time the site is back as usual. Mark will be available to receive calls again on Monday after he has been updated with information from the programmers. Thanks for the patience and understanding.

So there you have it. Now all we can do is wait until Monday/Tuesday to see what happens.

Unite Trade update 2

So it's been about 3 days now since my Unite Trade deposit. I don't really have anything good to report because from the looks of it, I haven't made a single cent:

I e-mailed them to ask why I haven't made anything at all in 3 days, so I'll wait for the answer before jumping to any conclusions. I'm hoping that all of my profits will just be shown on the 7th day. If not, then Unite Trade is not something you want to invest in. There is, however, another HYIP that I invested in a day after Unite Trade. I'm on a 30-day plan there. I'll let you guys know more about it soon.

Kooday payment for October 21

It's Thursday again, which means that it's payday on Kooday. As usual, here's a screenshot:

I'm not exactly sure if they have switched to the new payment system yet. The site says that a news update is coming in a few hours, so we will see what they have to say. Also, the launch of some of the search features are scheduled for tomorrow, so it would be interesting to hear an update about that. I'm pretty sure that the site will also get a much needed facelift tomorrow. I've said before that I can't imagine how many people got turned off from Kooday because it's sign up page makes it look like a complete scam.

If you want to learn a bit more about Kooday, you can check out this post. I pretty much summarized the latest happenings there.

UniteTrade update

It's currently day 2 of my investment into UniteTrade. The only news I have right now is that the site is down for maintenance. This is the message that appears when I try to access it:

SCHEDULED UPGRADE AND MAINTENANCE website is undergoing a scheduled maintenance right now (20th October 16:00 GMT to 21st October 04:00 GMT).
The estimated time for the security upgrades is almost 12 hours.
We will be back online at around GMT 04:00 hours, on the 21st of October.
We are moving our domain to a new and improved server, which will provide you with the best level of protection, security, speed, and experience.
Your patience is highly expected during this time.
I don't believe that this a good cause to panic, so I'll just wait out the 12 hours and see what happens. This is either one of those moments when the HYIP program shuts down, takes the money, and runs or they are genuinely updating their servers.

We shall see.

In the meantime, check out some of these books on the types of investing you can do online to make some money:

SurveySavvy survey panel

I really like this one. I registered with SurveySavvy about a month ago and have been filling out surveys for them occasionally. They send out a good amount of surveys and it's not hard to qualify for them. Plus each one pays well. I haven't done a survey for them that was less than $2.00.

Just a few minutes ago, I requested my first payment from them:

So there's more money coming my way!

Another reason why I like SuperSavvy survey panel a lot is because of their referral system. You get money every time a person you referred completes a survey, as well as when your referral's referral completes a survey. So if you can manage to get a good number of active referrals, you'll be making money without even doing anything. Sounds good to me.

SuperSavvy is definitely a good one. You can sign up here.

PS: Don't forget to fill out your 'Portrait'. You will get more surveys that way.

UniteTrade investment

Today I made my first investment into a High-Yield Investment Program, or HYIP as they are commonly called. I've been learning about HYIPs for a bit now and it's no secret that some of them are scams. So I did some thorough research beforehand and picked a company that has been tested by websites that specialize in testing HYIPs. The company site itself has badges from HYIP monitoring sites that are keeping an eye on it:

You can see those yourself if you visit their page.

The company is called UniteTrade.

They have 2 investment plans:

  1. 120% return after 7 Calendar days ($5.00 minimum investment)
  2. 150% return after 14 Calendar days ($100.00 minimum investment)

Since this is my first HYIP investment (and since I'm pretty broke right now), I made the minimum possible investment of $5:

All I got to do now is play the waiting game and watch my money work. I will be updating regularly to show you my experience with these guys.

If you are interested in trying this out for yourself, then go ahead and register.

They accept AlertPay, LibertyReserve, Perfectmoney, and SolidTrustPay. If you are not registered with one of these services, then don't worry, it's easy. Just pick one you like most head over to their website. I personally use AlertPay.

Kooday payment for October 14

Another week, another Kooday payment received!

I've written about Kooday a bunch of times already, so if you're still not familiar with this program, you can find more information by reading this post. This is pretty much a general overview of how it works. However, some major changes are coming this month. First of all, the search engine is set to go live on October 22. This is the moment all of us active Koodayers have been waiting for. The site will also be getting a facelift soon. That's good, because it really needs one. The "Sign Up" page looks really shady and I can't imagine how many people decided not to register on Kooday because it just looks like a scam. At last, they decided to re-design it. Good. Another bit of news is that Kooday will be switching to a new Profit Sharing Plan, which will be based on what words you own, not how many. In other words, you will earn way more if you own words that the incoming advertisers will want to link their sites to. So owning the phrase "paid survey sites" will make you much more than "Britney Spears", theoretically.

All of this is explained in much greater detail in the News section on Kooday. However, it's only accessible to members. I highly suggest you sign up and check out the News archives because they come straight from Kooday's founders and do a much better job at explaining how Kooday works than I ever will. You don't have to pay anything for signing up. You only pay if you decide to participate in Kooday and start buying keywords.

MyTesterJobs payment not received

So today is October 15, the day that MyTesterJobs listed as their first Pay Day. I logged into my account in hopes of finding some good news. To my (expected) disappointment, there was no news at all. Hell, they don't even have a News section on the site! The only thing that changed on the site since my last visit was the Pay Day date. Now, it's listed as November 15th:

I made those 24 cents from my first job for them, but so far it doesn't look like I'll be receiving any payment from MyTesterJobs. I don't really understand how they can set up a Pay Day without requesting any details about where the payment should be sent. They do present you with a solid list of payment types to choose from:

But that's where it stops. I selected Paypal, but no further information (like Paypal ID) was requested from me...

Their Twitter doesn't have any info on the Pay Day either. Ocotber 15 is not over yet, though. They still have 6 hours until midnight, but I am not expecting anything to happen.

Opinion Outpost payment check received

About two weeks ago, I requested a $10.00 payment from the Opinion Outpost survey panel. Their website states that it takes around 4 weeks for the check to arrive in mail, so imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox today. And I check my mailbox only about once a week, so the payment could have been laying in the for a while now. And here it is:


So there you have it. I just became $10 richer ;)

Have a good day, everybody!

MyTesterJobs first website test and payment

I've been waiting to see what will become of MyTesterJobs website tester for a while now. They had a nice long pre-launch campaign under the name When pre-launch ended, the site was inactive for about a week or so. The owners kept people updated through Twitter, where they said that they needed to set up additional servers because of the huge amounts of people that signed up worldwide. Well, the site seems to be running well now because today I was offered and completed my first website testing job:

As you can see, I made only 24 cents, but honestly all I had to do was go to a specified website, look around a bit and then fill out a short questionnaire. It took me no more than 3 minutes to complete both tasks. I even waited a bit more before submitting the form because I didn't want it to seem like I didn't do any work. The site was about E-books, all of them listed on one page, so there was very little site testing to do..

My account page says that the next payout is on October 15th. Let's see what happens.

I do find it interesting though that the site asks you about your preferred method of payment (I chose PayPal), yet they don't ask you for your e-mail for that service..
