This is a legitimate website to work on and they pay you with Amazon Gift Cards. However, a few people never received their PINS code in the mail. The site doesn’t always answer your emails requesting them to mail you your pins code. However, this only happens now and then and a few people don’t receive their codes in the mail. You must be a US residence and have a mailing address in the United States in order to work on this site. Unfortunately, this site is rather new so there’s not a lot of information about the site. The site has a high trust rating and people on different forums have supplied proof of payment and shown the gift cards they received.

If you want to sign up for this site, I’d suggest that you wait for your PINS code to arrive in the mail before starting to work. If you don’t receive the code within a week or so, contact the site and request a new code be mailed to you. Otherwise, don’t waste your time on the site because you can’t cash out if you don’t have the PINS code for your account.
