A friend of mine informed me of a site called Lockerz, another one of those "points and rewards program" sites, which we can all agree are generally scams or you end up spending more money completing offers than the prize is worth anyway. This is a bit different though. First of all, it appears to have some sort of community centric framework. It doesn't seem very complete at this point though. Second, it's currently invite only, would seem counter-productive to our average scam site. Finally, I haven't found any trace of offers to complete, they haven't asked for my credit card number, and I haven't been spammed with emails.
So, I had him shoot me an invite. I signed up and discovered the first of the 3 existing ways to earn points. A mini game where you catch falling icons. I scored 18. Another way is my answering something called "dailies". I have not explored this yet. Finally, you can earn points by inviting people. 2 points per invite, 4 if you've invited over 20.
Looking at those figures you'd think the prizes have some absurd point cost, or at least I did. So I went to investigate. Here's a couple for reference. Wii System, 240 points. 360 game, 60 points. Seems reasonable enough, considering I've already got 20. I did notice one thing however. ALL physical prizes (games, electronics, etc) were fresh out. I had to run this by my buddy as he was convinced it was legit. Turns out, the online community he learned about it from went so point/prize happy that they literally ran the entire stock out. He was able to provide photographic proof that they do, indeed, deliver. So now I'm hooked. Of course it still seems like one of those "too good to be true" deals, I've got to satisfy my curiosity. The site is very well done, I've been provided with pretty compelling evidence of legitimacy, and according to the site new stock will arrive on the 14th. Just enough time for me to accumulate some wealth.
So, what I am proposing is an opportunity. If any of you are interested, just PM your email to me, or if just post in this thread if you want, and I'll send you an invite. It benefits me, and you get in on something interesting. If some mod is vehemently opposed to this thread you can delete it, just don't ban me damnit.
