    Used to use it, pretty awful pay and now they refuse your submissions pretty easily or give you low scores which ruins your account. I don't think it's worth it anymore- not for music reviews. I used to only do the fashion reviews which paid at a decent rate. But don't even get the emails about those anymore.

    I do it and have a decent level on there so I aim for a quick $1-2 per day doing mostly fashion reviews which are alongside the music reviews. I tend to dip in whilst I'm doing other surveys and tasks just to mix it all up.
    Everytime they update their website they seem to lower their rates of pay, but I don't mind doing a little every day and cashing out each time I hit threshold.

    They used to pay 50 cents per fashion review, this is now no better than the music reviews. Not a fast way to earn cash like it was! IMHO, I think there are better ways to earn cash. I will get my account up to $10 eventually and cash out.

    Could anyone help please? Slicethepie have started doing beauty reviews, and I managed to get 1 review through, but it keeps saying i'm not being specific enough, and refer to the product I'm reviewing. I keep doing that, tried it so many different ways, but it's having none of it.

    Just logged in to Slicethepie for the first time since the end of January!
    I like how we can now choose which category to review, but I did one music and one homeware and only got paid 5 cents each. Don't mean to put people off too much, because have previously done music ones for that amount, in amongst others for 15-20 cents.
    Do we still get paid that much for some of them?

    Cauldron... both my reviews just now went through fine, but yes, it's annoying when it says you're not being specific enough or your reviews are sounding repetitive! I really think their autochecker needs to be more lenient and better able to tell the difference between genuine reviews and people posting gibberish.

    I don't have any beauty reviews to do, but they seem to require that you use a certain number of keywords - I think that's set too high as well! - so for the homeware one I used words such as design, style, texture, colour, mentioned the colours used, mentioned the product, and used a few suitable words from the given description.

    I gave this site a try a couple of years back, before I started writing for content mills.

    After earning a little bit of money on there they froze my account because I was rating things too similar for their liking. I emailed them and I think they allowed me back into my account but said I needed to give vary my ratings more. I never bothered after that.

    For the money on offer I thought their standards were too high and it was not really worth my time. I have no intention of ever going back there and wouldn't be surprised if it was even worse than it was before.

    For "selected homeware items" read "7 or 8 sofas". Shame it couldn't be more, really.

    I think it must depend on how many they had on a first come first served basis as I got to do 20 before it went back to my standard 5-13 cents.

    There were also some bonus music tracks and fashion items earlier this afternoon. STP comes and goes in terms of reward, I tend to open a tab and do it alongside surveys and make a couple of dollars a day - more if there are bonuses - so it just plods along for me.

    There were about 50-60 products available on that bonus this morning, and I also got about 60 homewares at around 38-40 too - though mostly kettles again which is starting to make my head hurt. Still its nice and fast and I can do it alongside other online stuff so win-win.

    50 cents on sports products has finished, but now it's 50 cents on homewares

    By the way, Joey, talking of an excessive amount of kettles, I ended up being quite happy to see the back of those electric scooters, because for the last few I did it was very difficult to get them accepted. No matter how many keywords I put in it kept saying it wasn't specific enough! Got to a point where I contemplated copying and pasting the description and seeing if it said the same!
    I didn't, but only because you can't copy and paste there!

    Thanks for the heads-up. Scooters and I didn't do very well, I kept getting that 'not specific enough' response too - its two wheels, a stand and a handle!!

    Done a couple of nice music surveys at Slicethepie in the past week, including one just now for $1.
    Still a link there in notifications in the account area.
