Bonus Network - Revolutionizing the Freebie Industry

There are many Freebie Sites out there and more are being added on a regular basis. Most of the freebie sites that are coming out recently are pretty similar. They use the same script, have the same features and really have nothing new to offer. I see it every day and quite frankly, my opinion is as follows: If you are going to start a new Freebie site or network, at this stage in the game, you have to do something new and exciting. Otherwise, it will be pretty hard for you to survive.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get much better, I was approached buy a site owner that said he was going to launch a new network called the Bonus Network. According to this site owner, this would be a revolutionary network that would really impress me. Now let me tell you this - I get approached by new site owners on a regular basis, asking me to work with their sites and my response is usually the same: Thank you for contacting me, but unfortunately, I do not promote new sites because with the nature of the industry, it is impossible to know whether a new site will last.

However, when this guy approached me, I knew that my response wouldn’t be the same.

Bonus Network

Allow me to introduce to you a new Freebie Network that (in my opinion) revolutionizes the way freebie sites run. The Bonus Network was launched on August 15th and was built from the ground up. The script was developed from scratch and has some features that makes me excited. Let me share SOME of these features with you.

GUARANTEED CREDITS

I had to deal with this one first, because I get so excited every time I think about it. These guys guarantee that if you do an offer, YOU WILL RECEIVE CREDIT - regardless of the offer. Crediting has been known to be an issue with Freebie sites. This eliminates that risk completely. If for some reason, you or your referral don’t get credited, they can submit a Manual Credit Request with the assurance that they will get credit

Maximum 2 offers to green on 1 credit sites

Each offer is worth either a full credit or a half of a credit. This means that your referral can easily go green by completing 1 or 2 offers, and never anymore.

You can change your account type at any time

One of the factors that sometimes turn people off from freebie sites is the fact that in order to make money, you usually have to get referrals. This is the model I prefer, but some people may not like this. What these guys did was set up their site so that you can switch between a referral and points based system. If you choose a points based system, you just complete offers and when you accumulate the necessary amount of points, you get your prize. However, if you decide you no longer want to do that, you can just switch back to a referral based system at the click of a button.

You can change your Referral Value at any time

As if everything I already mentioned isn’t enough, they made it possible to change the value of your referrals at anytime. If you are tired of doing a 1 credit site at $40 per referral, at a click of a button, you can change to a 2 credit site at $80 per referral. Once again, this can be changed at any point as many times as you wish.

IM and Phone alerts

They went beyond just email notification here. You can actually get IM messages or text messages on your phone when a referral signs up.

Besides all those awesome features, they also have the standard features that I always look for in a freebie site:

  • Repeatable: You can continue referring new people and continue getting paid
  • Good customer support: Live support is available 10 - 12 hours daily. Even on weekends.
  • Honest and Reliable admin: I never endorse a site unless I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Admin’s main concern is the members. These guys care, and it shows

In terms of prizes, there are a wide variety of consumer electronics available. Paypal is not an option, but they do provide giftcards, which can be any kind of giftcard you wish, including Visa, Mastercard and Amex. By not using Paypal, they were able to negotiate higher rates with their affiliates so that they can guarantee credit and maintain a high payout for completing fewer offers.

Although Bonus Network is not a forever green network, it is repeatable. You will be required to complete another offer or substitute a referral to order again.

The Future of The Bonus Network

It seems as if every time I speak to the owners, they are working on adding some new features to their network. This is what impresses me the most about them. One of the things they are working on is a custom URL feature: This will allow my referral links to look like this - www.bonusipods.com/thefreebieguy and yours to be whatever you want.

If I were to make a prediction as to which network will be a fast riser in 2009, it would be the Bonus network. Keep your eyes out for them and jump in now, because you don’t want to miss everything they have in store.

They currently has 6 sites, and you can find links to all of them below. With the variety that they have, in addition to everything I mentioned above, you will NOT be disappointed.

    That is very exciting new!

    It give me the thrill to go green again... if it's true that the credits are guaranteed, well it will certainly give a very big boost to the industry and help to get referals. And with all the added features the other networks might need to updated the way they are doing things... I see only great things about that new network.

    I will investigate more deeply though and keep an eye on it in 2009.

    • Justin

      What does going green mean?

      • http://www.becomeablogger.com/ Leslie, The Freebie Guy

        Hi Justin, going green means completing the offer requirements of the freebie sites. For example, if a site has a 1 credit requirement, this means that you have to complete 1 credit of offers. If you need to know more about the process, I would recommend downloading the Freebie Report (to the right of the page) or checking out my Freebies 101 course at http://becomeablogger.com/170/freebies-101-how-to-make-money-with-freebies/

  • Nicole

    Hi Leslie..this is the same Nicole as nicolepopenhagen@hotmail.com. I just wanted to get a new email, because of all the junk....
    I am so excited about this, I want to tell everyone. I think I will go post a thread in FLR to ask if anyone else has heard of it! Wooie! The guaranteed credit and the weight of the credits are spectacular!

  • Nicole

    Someone said this network is banned from FLR....? I hope not...!

    • Bonus Network Fehz

      I'd be wary for any reasoning provided by anyone for the ban on FLR. We have never contacted/spoken to FLR admins or promoted Bonus Network to FLR users. Although there are many FLR users who did run into our network and decided to add it to their trade threads, which was their own personal decisions. Shortly after, it was blacklisted for no apparent reason. None the less, we are sparking the attention of quite a few FLR users due to our revolutionized concept of the industry.

      Bonus Network is definitely legitimate. I would do a quick Google search on gift proofs and you will find a bit.

      If you (or anyone else) have any questions regarding Bonus Network, please feel free to email me or my partner at either fehz@bonusnetwork.org or shaz@bonusnetwork.org.

      • http://www.becomeablogger.com/ Leslie, The Freebie Guy

        Hi Nicole, yes, they are banned at FLR. But in my opinion that isn't a problem. I don't promote them at FLR, nor should anyone else. I contacted the Admin of FLR recently and he said that they were banned because they hadn't been approved yet. That might change and it might not. Either way, I think they have the BEST features out there, so I'm definitely going to use them :)

  • Brooke

    I just want to say, this is a legitimate network. I've cashed out here several times, been paid promptly. The offer requirements are fantastic, all 1/2 and 1 credit ratios.

    They may be banned from "FLR" but that doesn't mean they aren't legitimate. Sometimes stepping out of the "FLR BOX" and expanding your horizons on freebie forums is beneficial.

    I recommend this site to everyone, very newbie friendly, guaranteed crediting and Live Support!

  • stefanomen

    Would be interested in greening there... or are they offering any kind of promotions like free greens?

    Another question, even if they are banned at FLR can we promote them as a trader on FLR?

    • http://www.becomeablogger.com/ Leslie, The Freebie Guy

      Hi Stefanomen. Unfortunately you can't promote them at FLR. That's why I promote them here. There a good enough network that I think it's worth it.

    Someone at A4F introduced me to the Bonus Network, and I was very impressed with the site! Many offers to choose from, only took me 2 offers to go green and they credited very quickly. I understand and agree with the concept of stepping out of the "FLR BOX " being beneficial! Congrats Fehz and Shaz!
