Congrats - $2,000 earned w/ Online Offers

Time for the monthly congratulations post!

And, as usual, I have fun pictures that readers submitted with their checks or gift cards they received. Andrea's baby is adorable below! I loved the photo of Leslie's children. And, Erica's dog is pictured with her Got Milk TShirt and $500 Visa Gift Card.

For those of you who did this offer last year with her and did NOT get your gift within the 6 to 8 weeks time frame, be patient. It took Erica 10 weeks because the Tshirts were backordered. I did hear this happened on the Twilight Tshirts, too.

Carrie: I have a question that others may benefit from. I have started the online process a couple of times and chickened out before actually selecting any offers. The first time I did this was before I had read your blog. In reading the IDEAL site, it indicates that once you have an "account", that account can't be deleted. I'm concerned that now that I have emails I plan to use for each company site, there might be an "old" account for me with a different email when I started one of these previously. Do you know if this is a problem and how would I go about finding out if I have an account? I don't want to get disqualified before I even start.

Carrie @ said...

Yes, that could be a problem.

I would suggest hitting the Contact Us button the website and asking them if they can find out if you ever registered with them in the past and with what address.

Email them your name and address to see if they can look it up for you. Then, keep that email from them as backup for your records.

Hi Carrie, I did 2 online offers last year, I haven't received anything to claim the income on my taxes. Should I expect something ? any tips on the taxes ? Also i'm doing a nuitech offer is it usually a long time before they verify the documents you have to send ? Thanks, Steph

Did you earn over $600 from one company?

If not, you won't receive a 1099-MISC. If you did earn over $600, then they will send you a 1099-MISC.

Either way, you enter it as a 1099-MISC with the income coming in on line 7, I believe is where they usually log it, if you are using tax help software.

Everything with Nuitech is longer than IDeal. If it has been awhile, I would give them a call and verify they received it and just politely ask if they know approx. how long before they update manual credit. Their customer service should be able to give you an answer.

Did you earn money with Online Offers in January? How much, and I will add you to the round up.

SH said...

Hi Carrie Thanks for the answer ! I actually did 2 offers with ideal last year one 500 check and a wii and wii fit Do you think that matters as far as taxes go ? Can i claim it without the form ? Steph

Carrie @ said...


Do NOT do your taxes until you get your 1099-MISC from them.

As of yet, I still don't have all my tax forms in the mail ( not even from my bank for my mortgage yet ).

Why I say this is that IDeal will assign a value to the Wii and Wii Fit and calculate that on your 1099-MISC. You do not want to estimate something different then what they turn into the IRS.

Before you wait too long, though, send them and email and tell them what 2 offers you did and ask if the 1099's are going to be mailed out to you. Just to verify they are sending you one.

I did the Twilight offer & ended up having to do 9 offers instead of 8. Then they told me I had a different email registered, so I'm not eligible anymore. Total bummer & hubby is going to be furious with me. He didn't' want me doing the offer to begin with.

I don't even have a clue what email I had registered before. Oh well, what can you do. I guess be really careful with what email you use w/ these companies.

Carrie @ said...


Read Ginny's comments.

I think this is pretty much what you were talking about.

You can and will get DQ'd if you use multiple email addresses. Even if it was years earlier and just to look around but you didn't do anything.

So, do check before you start, Cheryl, just to make sure.


BUMMER! I would still email them and ask them for the other email address, just so you can verify it was you.

Carrie Thanks so much for the tax answers I didn't know what to do ! You are so awesome. Steph
