Goodness I keep posting today!!

I was wondering if anyone has done either the passport to fun or the gamefly offers on some of the sites? I would like to know how it went. Thanks

I did Gamefly through QR. It credited quickly and you can cancel online-very easy offer!

Goodness I keep posting today!!



And this is my second reply to one of your posts today.:wave2:

I have done both and both were very easy and credited quickly. I have kept Passport to Fun and I love it. I got a good deal offered to me when I called to cancel so I am sticking with it for a year (for the price of one month.) It has been more than worth it to me since I have purchased countless $ 25 gift cards for $ 20. You do have to call to cancel Passport to Fun.

Hey thanks guys!!

I just did gamefly and will think about passport to fun. I am really getting into doing offers and now I am starting to get adventerous and am enjoying it.

Treasure Trooper has it for 11 dollars. I just joined Treasure Troopers last week under someone at disboards and like it because it has offers that I don't find other places. I have heard good things about them but I have not been a member long enough to know if they pay out.

Ok - I cannot find passport to fun on either QR or Sunshine. Has anyone done these from either of them?

I'm not a member of the Treasure site.

No, it is only at Treasure Troopers right now. I try and do SR or QR first then CR and then fall to Treasure Troopers. :)

Tricia,

That is funny since I joined Passport to Fun through SR when I first joined in May. It was my first CC signup so I remember it well. I'm sure all the different offers start running together after a while!

I really like Passport to Fun. It is the only trial signup I have kept. As I mentioned above, I got a better deal once I called to cancel. They have always been prompt with sending the gift cards I order. I highly recommend it!

01-30-2007, 02:57 PM
LOL! You are totally right! Looking back through my archives, I see that it was first an offer in the 100 range. We're up in the 500s now. The advertiser must have discontinued it for awhile. I was wondering why Treasure Trooper had something that I didn't. We tend to work with the same companies.

I might have to try this one myself. I order thousands of dollars in gift cards a month. What kind do they have?

Wilsonfamily4
01-30-2007, 03:22 PM
Okay, I just joined passport to fun through SR as well. :) There are not many spots left for this offer. Glad I decided to do it. :) We'll see if I like it. Everyone says good things about it. I want to see what cards they offer.

I have not recieved a confirmation email from them yet with my membership info. I know I finished the application as I put all my credit card info in. Does anyone know what may have happened? Sunshine girl do you know if I actually joined? Silly me!

01-30-2007, 05:08 PM
I signed up for Passport to fun too on Sunshine. Mine gave me a confirmation so i'd check to see if yours went ok. I have yet to receive an email just the typical thank you when I hit the submit page.

Also I tried to do the supermembers special offer but when I clicked the link it said the page is unavaliable so I didn't get it. When I tried to do it again it said i've already completed the offer.

Tricia,

There is a limit of 20 per retailer per year. Here are some of the retailers: Amazon, Circuit City, Toys R Us, Kmart, Sears, Borders, Barnes & Noble and Blockbuster. They use to have Target which was great but that ended in November. Restaurants include: Bennigans, TGI Fridays, Outback, Olive Garden, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and various fast food. You can also get movie tickets for $5.50 and theme park tickets but I haven't compared prices to see if those are a good deal or not.

Most of the gift cards are $ 25 with some, mostly fast food and Blockbuster coming in $ 10 amounts. I get $ 5 back on my purchasing credit card at the end of the month ($ 2 for the $ 10 ones). I wasn't sure at first how it was going to go, but they have always given me my credit each month and sent the cards promptly.

I have heard from other people on these boards that they don't get the same deal (I think a % off or something.) I got my offer when I called to cancel. So I am not sure what the current offer is for those joining now. But Passport to Fun has worked great for me. Hope this helps!

I did the supermembers offer and already got credit! :banana: Going to France in 2008, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to order some French CDs.

I hope there is some way you can try again!

01-31-2007, 12:06 PM
Hoping Hoping Hoping I get credit too. Yesterday I was at $5...today I'm at $25 with $14 pending! It amazes me how quickly I can rack up credits sometimes!

It really makes Disney trips doable for us. I want to do another trip next June with some friends of mine, but wasn't sure it was in the family budget. With the way I'm going with Sunshine, I can easily get $500-600 towards it- that's enough $$ for at least 2 of our park tickets (it will be just me and the kids as DH is tied up with something else), if not 3. It's amazing! Or food for most of the trip!

I did get a credit from something I did a trouble ticket for ages ago- I was pleasantly surprised to see that in my account this morning! Thanks Tricia for manually giving me the True.com credit! :cool1: :thumbsup2

It was right on page 1 of offers for me. Did anyone do this and get th free $25 Visa gift card it offered?
I can't figure out where you get the Visa. It said go to www.dealpass.com and log in, which I did, but I can't find anywhere on there to get the $25 Visa.

Anyone have any luck finding it?

Once you log on to passport there was a box at the top of the first page you had to click on. You have to stay longer than the trial period to get it I'm pretty sure.

I'm all confused. . . I got a confirmation, but it was for savingsmart.com, not passport to fun. I thought it said something that signing up for one signed me up for the other, which was ok I'd just be sure to cancel both. . .
but when I log in at dealpass it takes me straight to savingsmart and I have no way to log into passport to fun. I wonder if I'll get a separate confirmation?

Be careful with that one! They are separate and will bill separately so you have to make sure to cancel both. I almost got caught up in that one! Be careful and make sure to confirm that both are canceled. Did you plug your account number in once you get to dealpass? That usually takes me to the right Passport to Fun pages. If not, you may have to contact customer service.

Tricia~ I went thru my account history to try and figure out if I had done Passport to Fun in the past to see if that's why it came up 'ineligible' last night on the website (although they sent me a confirmation email this AM and my credit card has the charge on it). Is Passport to Fun the same as 'Great Fun'? If not, I guess I didn't do it! 'Great Fun' is the only one I can see on my account history that would possibly be it.

Thanks if you can answer my question. A lot of these signups start looking familiar after awhile.

And one other question: do all the Scholastic offers have different sponsors? Or does Scholastic set the prices? I only ask cause I'm puzzled why the Baby Einstein offer only pays out $7, but costs $14 on our end....it seems the ones I did in the past like Nick or Disney were $9 or $10 in credits, and I paid out about $10. Just curious. I'm tempted, because I think my daughter would like the Einstein products, but it seems like a more expensive set to try and keep up on should we choose to keep it.

Thank you- Robin

I'm actually not sure if Great Fun and Passport to Fun are the same, but I would not be surprised. Same as a bunch of the "bargain network" ones that all have similar names but are basically the same thing.

We do have different sponsors for all of the Scholastic offers. Probably about 4 different advertisers that I go through. In some cases, I get better rates because we do a lot of volume (like the Disney offers). In other cases, they give me lower rates because we are an incentive site and they know a lot of people will cancel. I don't why the differences in the S/H unless they want to try to discourage people from signing up just for the rewards.

The Nick ones got cancelled today. :(

Yeah, I thought that's what I read when I signed up so I made a mental note to make sure I cancel both. . . but I can't figure out why I can access the "extra" and not the actual program I signed up for. Dealpass takes me straight to the smartsavings one with no option to get into Passport to Fun. I'll give it another day and see if they kick me a separate confirmation.

I' m pretty sure they are different programs. I did Great Fun through QR in December I think. It did not have the extra 'Saving Smart' program to cancel. I believe Great Fun is offered through Trilegiant. It's one of the QR portal offers and it pays $11.00 for a $1.00 trial.

It said that to me too, but then I got the confirmation email the next day and my credit card was charged the $1. So, I'm assuming I was eligible afterall. I'm going to be mad though if they don't give Sunshine the credits.

I did not receive a confirmation email from Saving Smart, but I remember reading in the fine print I would be signed up for it, so I wrote that number down. When I called the number, they retrieved my account when I entered my phone number. it then canceled it. (all automated).

I'll try calling tonight. Last night I logged into SavingsSmart/Deals (whatever it's called) w/my Passport to Fun member # & it said that I had canceled my Passport to Fun account...but it sounds like they should be two separate member #s huh?! Great. Well at least it doesn't sound too painful to figure out your member # & cancel it.

It was easy. They first ask if you need your savings smart account number, I did so then they asked me to put in my phone number and gave me the account number. Because I may be not so smart I then hung up and called the same number so I could go the area for canceling. All very easy. Easy but I hate to think what would have happened if I just kept thinking I hadn't signed up for it. And I never even checked to see if it was the same number as passport to fun. But I know I canceled that one days ago and this one was stll active. Lucky me as today was 7 days.

They sent an email asking if it could be under a previous address or phone number. I emailed them back and told them the current info I gave them was correct and that I signed up for Passport to Fun and the fine print read that I would be signing up for Smart Savings as well. I received an email back from them stating that I was only enrolled in Passport to Fun so I guess I was never enrolled in Smart Savings. I'll just keep a copy of the email in case I get charged for anything but they couldn't locate me in the system. HTH

A word of warning on this one!

Signed up two weeks ago and cancelled last week. Yesterday they charged my cc $19.99. When I called today they said they have no record of the cancel phone call. Well you just talk to a phone not a real person so you can't say it was so and so at 1pm and here is my cancellation number, etc. They took the charge off but I did have to speak to a supervisor.

I would check with your cc to see if you a'll got any charges! It actually kinda scared me about doing these offers!

02-16-2007, 10:44 PM
I didn't get emails from Passport or SmartSavings but there is a $2 pending authorization on my cc.
I did get a SmartSavings email but it was associated with the Private Matters offer.
So I'm not sure. I guess I'll see if I get credit for it. If not I'll call Passport just to make sure I'm not charged for anything.

Update: I joined 2/15 and finally got an email from Passport today 2/18. Kinda screwy. No SavingSmart email as of yet. I guess I'll wait until Wed 2/21 and cancell. Hopefully I get credit for this one since the email ws so long in coming.

Update #2: Credited tonight 2/18. Yeah. Tricia is awesome.
