Has anyone ever used their site?

I have been messing around on it a little hoping to get some free stuff. Haven't got any samples yet though. Did win a $5 amazon gift card today though. So it has been worth my time so far. I just wanted to hear other's opinions on it.

do you earn points and cash out or how does it work?

I've been using it for a couple months.  I've earned (or won I guess) a couple of $5 amazon cards and received a few samples.

i like the quick hits and the text challenges.  They're super easy to do while waiting somewhere.

I've been doing it for about a month, yesterday I also won a $5 amazon gift card, and I was invited to a Cottonell thing. So far it has been worth it, and really simple compared to swag bucks. At least for me :-)

No. This is not a cashout system like SB. I think that's why a lot of people are turned off from it. It is a drawing system. The more points you get for answering quick questions, the more chances you get in the drawing. They are a brand based consumer site, so each brand is asking questions about their products (or a variety of similar products). Each brand has their own points (100-1 entry into that brand's drawing, each question answered is 20 points with opportunities for more points by entering quick discussions or posting a photo-usually you with the brand in the grocery store lol)
Anyway, it takes maybe 5-10 minutes a day to answer everything that's available for ALL brands, they have a nice little dashboard- and once I started actaully going in to do it once a day, I've won at least one card a month. Last month, I actually made a Crowdtap tab and I check in on it a few times a day as brands ocassionally add questions throughout the day. Since doing that, last month I won 5 $5 cards.
As for the sampling, each brand has levels, the more points you get, the higher your level. The points reset at the beginning of every month, but the level progress stays. The higher your level, the better your chances for getting picked for a sampling (sample and shares also up your points once you complete the "share" part)

Yep. I mean, I've found that the more I keep up with it on a daily basis, the better my chances are, especailly because most drawing are for 500 $5 cards, but yeah. At the end of the day, there's no guarantee of anything.
I still suggest trying it to everyone. You can determine the effort vs possibility of win for yourself. I personally have found I like it, but I completely understand if folks don't like it.
