Free Shares From Shopping - The Dead List
These are the free shares sites that just didn't last the distance, kept here for reference.
Where To Next?
Fantastic potential this one. Get paid cash and free shares for using the internet while displaying a small Viewbar (similar to the Google Toolbar).
Earn shares or cashback when you shop online. Now a very good range of stores available, plus some extra 'members only' limited purchase special deals. Cashback is paid out quarterly, on reaching a minimum balance of £25 before a cheque is drawn. This is now FREE to join (was £25)! They have actually introduced a 2-tier membership system. As a free member you still get all the benefits of AlphaCadia - but now, if you upgrade to a 'Founder Member' (one-off cost of £30) you not only get 200 free shares, but also a choice of double cashback or more free shares on every cashback purchase. AlphaCadia earns an extra * then!
Latest: Now appear to have quietly transformed into an online shops directory, with no explanation or mention of cashback...
'Get paid to receive text messages'. 100 free shares for signing up, 3 more for each friend you introduce - you will also earn cash on text messages they receive. Information on the site is confusing, and although recently 'launched' the site looks pretty amateur and nothing seems very finished! Time will tell - but we're not holding our breath!
Latest: Time told... not recommended
A basic community / forum based site - the biggest bonus of which is the forums are quite fast to use. Points for joining, introductions and people reading your messages - and points may one day make free shares.
Got a burning question? You can get hundreds if not thousands of opinions within days FREE. And the more you participate, and the more questions you ask, and the more you questions you answer - the more credits for Free Shares you earn. Good fun!
Fancy free telephone calls for a year!? Share-Dial offer savings of 62% on UK national calls and 90% on international calls - just by dialling 1845 before your usual number. Introduce 6 friends and get £10 of free calls per month for a year! Plus another month of free calls for each additional friend.
Members also get up to 1,000 free shares on joining, with 200 shares for referring a friend, and 100 shares for every £25 spent on calls. Be prepared to make an initial credit of £25 to your account to be used for your calls.
Aiming to offer product discounts negotiated due to large volumes of members. Nothing available yet... Unfortunately dodgy spelling and the odd German word give away the country of origin.
Innovative and unique site providing web site owners with an instant review of their site from a large panel of users (i.e. you and me!). Still developing but a promising and valuable service. One free share on sign-up, plus 1 free share for every survey completed. Plus 1,000 shares randomly awarded to a new member every month.
Aiming to pay you for receiving email they send to you on behalf of advertisers, plus more cash for people you introduce. Currently still building up membership, and very few actual paid emails have been issued. 5 free shares when you sign up plus 2 more shares for introducing friends.
Slammer offer good prices on computer games - PC, Playstation, Gameboy, whatever. Shares were to be allocated between January - March 2001, but there doesn't appear to be any mention of free shares on the site anymore.
