Is Lockerz a Scam? Part 6

Posted By Tony on October 12th, 2009

Lockerz Invite
We’re days away from the official launch of Lockerz, and the Lockerz team has posted a note regarding the worries many users have been having on gift availability.

Feel free to read below:

Greetings Lockerz Members worldwide.

Your team at Lockerz.com is excited about our first global PTZ Place event coming this Thursday, October 15.

As many of your know, Lockerz is still in its beta stage and will be even after we launch our site’s full functionality. Every day, with your help and input, Lockerz becomes a better site, a better community and a bit more worthy to earn the right to be your home page one day in the future.

We’ve worked very hard on the following rules and logistics to help ensure that 10/15 is as fair and inclusive as possible. As much as we’d love to satisfy every wish for every member, we can’t — but we can endeavor to be as fair and responsive as humanly possible.

We have also struggled with the reality that there are a portion of Lockerz members who, despite our best efforts and granting of second chances, continue to try and cheat or disrespect the integrity of the Lockerz community and its amazing members. We, at Lockerz, feel a strong sense of responsibility and passion for protecting the interests and rights of our more than one million legit members, worldwide in 185 countries.

As a result, we’ve made some new rules for this posting to ensure that we can quickly shut down and manage those who do not participate with a sense of fair play nor belief in what we are trying to build together.

There is no perfect system yet and we recognize that some may be disappointed ultimately despite our best efforts. Rest assured that we will continue to solicit your feedback and learn from both your good ideas and our own missteps.

With that spirit in mind, here are new rules and details for 10/15 (which will actually bleed into 10/16 to allow for four separate time postings).

Prizes:

1) We have hundreds of thousands of prizes for this redemption in total but the most popular electronics and other gifts will run out again quickly and need to be restocked for the next PTZ Place posting in November (date to be announced soon).

2) We are restocking many of the prizes posted on 9/15/09, and we won’t raise PTZ levels on these prizes.

3) We have also added new prizes, many of which were suggested by Lockerz members.

4) Absolutely no exchanges, no returns, no cancellations and no PTZ refunds on prizes. Please select very carefully.

5) To allow as many members as possible to redeem:
a. Members are only allowed one (1) item over 50 PTZ per day. If you violate this rule, your order will be cancelled and your account will be subject to cancellation.
b. No redemption of two of the same items on the same day.

6) We are working on a longer-term strategy for European PAL electronics rules that we hope to have secured in a few weeks. For now, we are offering Amazon.com girt cards for global members to purchase their favorite electronics and other items on amazon.co.uk, amazon.co.fr or other global Amazon sites.

7) Prizes will be restocked 4 times:
10/15/09 at 6PM EDT
10/15/09 at 9PM EDT
10/16/09 at 7AM EDT
10/16/09 at 1PM EDT

Shipping

1) Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipping in USA. Please allow 3 weeks for shipping outside of USA.

2) All items other than iSkins and t-shirts will be sent via UPS. A tracking number will be provided for all UPS shipments.

International shipping

1) Lockerz is now shipping globally to every country in its dropdown menu!!

2) All US and Global shipping is still FREE for this event!

3) Every package sent internationally will be labeled as a “gift.” This should eliminate or significantly reduce any import duty or tax in the vast majority of countries. However, Lockerz cannot be responsible for paying any further fees or tariffs imposed by a recipient’s local government.

4) For our Brazil members, your country does not allow “gifts” to be shipped without fees or tariffs. We are in the process of creating an alternative shipping and distribution strategy for you to solve this problem. This will delay your order by up to 21 days but it should be worth it!

Important other rules and info:

1) We have added two catpchas (security codes) to the redemption process to help protect security of the transaction as well as ensure accuracy of typing.

2) All addresses must be entered accurately and be consistent with member’s profile address. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of the prize order.

3) No exchanges, returns, no cancellations or PTZ refund on prizes.

4) Use of any bots, cheats or fraud will result in immediate order AND membership cancellation.

5) Due to our growth and how busy we’ve been with building new functionality for our existing site, we are not launching the full Lockerz website for a few weeks. Please stay tuned for more details.

6) Have fun.

That was quite a lot of information packaged into a single post. If you didn’t take the time to read the whole thing. Here’s the abridged version:

Prizes will be restocked 4 times:
10/15/09 at 6PM EDT
10/15/09 at 9PM EDT
10/16/09 at 7AM EDT
10/16/09 at 1PM EDT

To allow as many members as possible to redeem:
a. Members are only allowed one (1) item over 50 PTZ per day. If you violate this rule, your order will be cancelled and your account will be subject to cancellation.
b. No redemption of two of the same items on the same day.

Also, international shipping is going to be finally available, so all you international members can finally rejoice! Make sure to redeem your “bigger” items first, so you’ll still be able to redeem another “big” item on subsequent days.

Personally, I can’t wait until Thursday/Friday, because I’m pretty sure, like most of you,  I’ll get something awesome then.

Is Lockerz a Scam? Part 5

Posted By Tony on October 3rd, 2009

Lockerz Invite

Lockerz’s official launch is just around the corner and we have been hearing stories around the world of users receiving their desired merchandise. Video Games, Consoles, IPods, Designer Clothes, and even Z-List T-shirts have found their way to their final destination.

If you guys have checked out the store lately, you would of noticed that most of the merchandise is currently out of stock. Not much you can do about that, due to the massive influx of participants that Lockerz is currently receiving. But hopefully we will see a more stable stock life come October 15th.

I’ll make sure to keep you guys posted on updates as we roll closer to the starting date.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in joining! Make sure to put “Lockerz Invite” in your title or something of that sort so I don’t miss your request.

Is Lockerz a Scam? Part 4

Posted By Tony on September 7th, 2009

Lockerz Invite

This will most likely be the final installment in the Lockerz saga. Lockerz has had time to get settled in and the results are slightly disappointing. I’m not sure if it is just me or if everyone is facing this problem, but currently I am unable to even log into my account! I’ve been pretty busy with school starting again, so I took a break from checking up on Lockerz, but it seems like this has been happening for a while.

Have you guys been experiencing similar results? Or is this just some sort of server trouble Lockerz is currently having? If this continues it’ll be hard for me to back such a unstable site.

Is Lockerz a Scam? Part 3

Posted By Tony on August 25th, 2009

Lockerz Invite

We’re already on our third installment on Lockerz. So what’s new? Well, as most of you have noticed, there has been quite a bit of site instability surrounding Lockerz. There has been multiples days where the site has been down or it was simply not loading on your browser.

Lockerz has recently responded that despite these set backs they are making progress with their site upgrades. And they have even released the release date for their next batch of items on the PTZ Place prizes.

There will be a new batch set to release, Tuesday 9/15 at 5 PM EST.  New items will be added and the price on existing items will not rise from their current prices.  Unfortunately, there will only be 4x of each item, so if you arrive late, you might find your favorite items out of stock.

This leaves roughly 20 days before the redemption day. If you joined today, and only logged in and did the dailies every day, then you’d be looking at roughly 80 + your registration points. This is already enough for any Xbox360/PS3/Wii video game, and for ~1-2 minutes of work a day, it’s not too shabby if I do say so myself.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in joining! Make sure to put “Lockerz Invite” in your title or something of that sort so I don’t miss your request.

Is Lockerz a Scam? Part 2

Posted By Tony on August 19th, 2009

Lockerz Invite

Last Friday, Lockerz gave users the option of redeeming gifts, but their store sold out of the items in a matter of hours.
Obviously they weren’t expecting this great an influx of traffic, so both their stores and site were unable to handle us all. What does this mean for us now? Well here is the official announcement from Lockerz:

To all Lockerz members: First of all, thank you for your ongoing support of Lockerz and the input you’ve given us to make it better. We’ve been inspired by your passion, and to be honest, unprepared for the enormous numbers that we’ve grown to over the past two weeks.

We launched PTZ place as a small pre-launch test to teach early members what your PTZ would buy when we launch the full site in October. We also wanted to learn what worked and what still needed development. Thanks to you, we found out that we have a lot of work to do. Your feedback continues to be our engine for change. We are going to wait to post the next prizes until the site is fair and stable for all users. We estimate it will take about three or four weeks to bring Lockerz site performance, security and inventory level to where it needs to be for our current membership numbers and beyond. We will give you updates on our progress every Tuesday.

In the meantime, here are the things you should know:

1) All current prizes legitimately earned will be fulfilled and shipped. You’ll get them in 7-10 days from when you redeemed.
2) You can continue to earn PTZ, invite friends and make the Z-list while we do our work.
3) We’ll continue to ship Z-List T-shirts as you make the list both in the US and globally (allow 7-10 days for shipping).
4) PTZ values will not go up again when we post in a few weeks or even at the October launch.
5) When we do post the prizes again, we will have more than 4x the number we posted in this past week at the same prices.

Thanks and keep earning while we’re working 24/7 to make Lockerz what we all want it to be.

Is Lockerz a scam? Only time will tell. Their employees have a strong track record and they have promised to send out all gifts that their users have redeemed so far. Personally, I have yet to redeem anything, so I am unable to comment on this, but come October, I’m sure that I’ll have enough points to get that IPod Touch :) .

What do I recommend? Well, participating on Lockerz takes less than a minute everyday, so I will continue to support the site. I’m already pretty close to hitting the Z-List so a free T-Shirt isn’t too shabby either!

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in joining! Make sure to put “Lockerz Invite” in your title or something of that sort so I don’t miss your request.

Is Lockerz a Scam?

Posted By Tony on August 18th, 2009

Lockerz Invite

The Get Paid To community has been in an uproar after the launch of a new rewards based site–Lockerz.

Questions have been brought up about the legitimacy of a  site that rewards you for doing just about anything.

So what is Lockerz?

Lockerz.com is a brand new site that rewards you for just about everything you do. Registration is very easy and members can earn points extremely quickly. One of the main reasons why its popularity is spreading so rapidly is because it’s very easy to earn enough points to redeem a variety of merchandise. This includes MacBooks, Designer Handbags, Video Games, iPods, Nintendo Wiis and much more.

How it works

You can earn points in 3 ways:

1. Logging in each day.

2. Answering the question of the day.

3. Referring new members.

For example, in the first day alone, I got 23ptz through registration, 2 ptz for signing in, and another 2 ptz for answering the question of the day. All this for a grand total of 27pts! What does this all mean? Well, I can already redeem many videos games such as GTA4, which is priced 25pts!

Is Lockerz.com a legitimate website?

As a testament to the legitimacy of Lockerz.com, its CEO, Kathy Savitt, used to be Vice President at Amazon.com and the CMO at American Eagle. Lockerz.com major financial contributors is Liberty Media, which owns a major part of Time Warner, which is the firm that supports Bodybuilding.com and QVC.

Currently, Lockerz is in beta and access is invitation only.

To get an invite:

1)Please subscribe to my blog!

I only get a certain number of invites per day, and want to focus on rewarding my loyal readers.

2)Please contact me if you are interested in joining! Make sure to put “Lockerz Invite” in your title or something of that sort so I don’t miss your request. I’ll make sure to double check with my email subscription list to insure that you’ve subscribed to my blog.
