Referrers Board


We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team, with limited resources, but we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.
 
At this time, we need your help more than ever so that we can focus our energy on helping the millions of people affected by coronavirus. For now, we plan to leave the Referrers Board open, but we ask that you only post on here within the Referral Board rules especially of once only per referral and on the correct threads. As always please keep it friendly and within the forum rules.
 
Thank you for your help and understanding at this really difficult time.

    Unfortunately this is run by Submission Technology Ltd, a business who are known to be proponents of ethically questionable incentive websites.

    They used to run a site called PaidOffers.co.uk, which received a lot of negative press and a couple of ASA citations for misleading its users. PaidOffers was also a cashback ladder whereby it was next to impossible to actually earn anything. 20 Cogs, as far as I can tell, is exactly the same concept under a new name (PaidOffers is now closed).

    Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it normally is!
  • I was just about to sign up for this scheme, and I'm very glad I came to this forum. Thanks for taking the time to post and remind me that if it seems too good to be true it normally is.
  • I joined in a week ago and sadly regretted it :( my phone, my email has been bombarded with non stop unsolicited calls and msgs. Too good to be true and not worth it.

    This cashback website is 100% legit! I earned £200 and had 2 payouts already !
    For reffering a person you get 5% for lifetime of their earnings plus if someone finishes all 20 tasks you get instant £20. Edit: This is only for UK

    Not trying for referrals or anything but I used 20cogs and got £173 out of it.
    Some of the offers will give you £10 but you lose £5 in sign-ups or P&P etc... 
    Always try and do any casino based ones, then use live roulette to wager your deposit and find the same live table on a different site to do black and red on £1 spins.
    Yes I did get a lot of phone calls but after a while and blocking numbers they pretty much stopped.

    When signing up to sites, make sure to cancel any monthly DDs instantly and im sure most people on this site have an e-mail address they just use for spam offers and shopping sites anyway.

    Other than that, it is legit, takes 30days from completing an offer until you get the money.

    Hi, I've been doing 20 cogs for a while now, just slowly,, I'm up to cog 14 now i think..  I can vouch for the customer services being good..    Its not a scam site at all, seems very genuine.  Im up to £70 and selected offers that have cost me a total of £1 of my own money so far.  (Not used any gambling sites as I now do matched betting which is proving to be very lucrative).    
    To allow me to complete another cog, please use my code below to sign up with, and if you complete your 20cogs, we will both get £20!

    Thanks. :-).
