About Get Paid To Sign Up / GPT


Sign up at your own risk on several of these companies!

Get paid to sign up means you are paid when you sign up for offers. PTSU. Sometimes they are called GPT, Get-Paid-To, Get Paid To, Get Paid To Sign Up or GPTSU sites. Which means get paid to. Get paid to do surveys, get paid to sign up for things, get paid to click emails, get paid to download apps, etc. You think it, they offer it, and sometimes it's not even legal. You won't get into trouble, the company offering you the ability will. So at least you are safe there. In GPT sites, you can make money by doing online tasks, like downloading/installing mobile apps, joining for free trial, complete tasks/offers, playing games, clicking ads, Doing surveys, read news, watching videos and many more.

Some Get-Paid-To websites lead to such things as loads of spam or free samples. You earn the company money when you sign up for the offers which you are in turn paid for. Rewards from doing GPT can be points that are converted into things, cash, sweepstake entries and more.

The GPT companies we have tested and supported will be marked as such.  

Annika's doesn't support paid to sign up sites, but we wish to keep our members, visitors, readers, and fans informed of what's out there. This means we can not offer you help should you encounter problems besides the information contained upon this page. We feel that many of these types of sites may not be legal, or good. The very rare few that have worked out for us have been marked as such and mostly haven't signed up for things. We simply clicked the emails or did the surveys.


GPT Q & A


Where can I find Get Paid To websites to sign up for?

A. You can find Get Paid To Website here.

Any warnings?

A. Yes. If you use a VPN you will have to remove it. Also, if you join these types of sites, be ready to be banned. Why? 90% of these sites are the same templates which means the same content. You will be taking the same Surveys over and over again and again. This is called CHEATING. You will be banned. Users complain they lost their accounts and were abiding by the rules. This is untrue. Taking the same paying surveys at other sites that are all the same is a breach of terms of service. You should also understand that several places delete earnings if you don't cash out in a certain time frame. so log in often to keep your account active and earning.

Be careful joining a lot of GPT. Get paid to websites mostly have the same template. You complete survey for X and are paid X. Well these are all the same offers on all the same websites. You could be banned for cheating if you do it on more than one website. Even though it's not really cheating because you've not completed it with website Z but website A. It's another reason why Get-Paid-To websites are so risky. If you have the time to spare on these high risk companies, more power to you. But to me, it's not a smart move. Your time is worth more than they could ever offer. As you MAY not be paid. If your time worth a MAYBE payout?

Are there any GPT sites you suggest or recommend?

A. Yes. These are ones we have been paid by.

Do you think you have been scammed?

According to recent statistics from the National Consumer League's list of Top 10 Net Frauds, online auctions seem to top the list of Internet scams for a few years running. Many people have got scammed on the Internet, but today the scammed person is not necessarily the loser. Stop blaming yourself and fight scams NOW.

Start by reporting scams to the local police, FBI, Secret Service, post office, phone company, local newspaper and TV station, your bank and credit card company, your lawyer and the Department of Consumer Affairs.

Besides, consider reporting scams to the following agencies which are specialized in dealing with Internet scams. Be sure to check out Annika's About The Blacklist page for warning signs.

I have found the BBB to personally handle complaints wrong, so still do your research. The BBB is merely a third party website that hopes to help you avoid going to court with businesses. Businesses pay to be a part of the BBB. The BBB often mark cases solved that aren't. I personally think they are a waste of time. You file a complaint, they send it to the other party. The other party replies, or not and eventually the BBB marks the case as solved.

Do not waste your time with the scam sites GPTBoycott, Web of Trust, Scambook, Scamadvisor, SiteJabber, or Survey Police. Survey Police was ran by GTM AKA Global Test Market. It has since been sold to Lightspeed Research (a Survey company.) It was created for the purpose of gathering information to use for Market Research as well as makes money off of referrals and affiliate links. Simply calling yourself "Police" or "Authority" does not make you any kind of legal authority. We can't in good conscience add Web of Trust. We discovered forums where people are being paid to leave bad feedback and even church websites being rated as unsafe proves what a waste it's become. This is heartbreaking to those of us who believe the word trust means just that. GPTB appears to have closed their forum.

There is another "trust" site out there to report to, however many have complained negative reviews left on their site are being removed for paying companies. Again, due to this abuse of trust we can't recommend it. (Even if we use it ourselves.) Stick to the real tried and true sites.

We realize not every rip-off happens online, so here are these websites: https://www.jdpower.com/ https://www.homeadvisor.com/ https://www.yelp.com/ https://www.tripadvisor.com/ U.S. Postal Inspection Service
