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.

Thanks a bunch for reading and if you like what you’re reading, please subscribe to my blog!

  1. Very helpful post…
    Thaks for sharing dear….

    From Terms of Use:
    “Pointz are only valid until the end of the current calendar year and do not roll over into the following year unless specifically agreed upon by Lockerz. Lockerz may discontinue the Pointz program or revise the Pointz program terms and conditions at any time.”

    “9.PTZ expire on December 31 of each year, or sooner if the PTZ Place program is shortened or terminated.”

    Other than that, I don’t see anything negative… They must have this site for marketing reasons.

    • Tony says:

      I think that it’s either going to be used for marketing or as a pseudo-survey site, since right now they’re getting user info on random topics. Down the line I think they want to be the “cool” hangout spot for users online. By then they’ll probably be funded through advertisements.

  3. I didnt get enough points to get a gift from them.
    I dont want to believe lckerz is scam.

  4. Can’t even get to the site anymore =/ Time will tell…that’s for certain.

    • Tony says:

      I’ve been having trouble logging in too. They’re updating their site right now, so hopefully these hiccups will be gone soon.

      • Hitman says:

        Why do you protect this site so much?

        We all know (the smart people, or the ones already scammed by Lockerz) that its a scam!

    Cheers , Will make sure i do not visit

  6. Katimusha says:

    I am just hoping its not a scam because I was actually going to try it but… well i haven’t had a good track record with that type of site lol

  7. Synonymous says:

    Hi, I found your blogs on Lockerz very interesting, but you are way down the list of sites on the subject of lockerz, all of which seem to be spammy attempts at an seo driven marketing campaign. I wonder what the verdict is so far, I just got an invite which is why I was doing a bit of Googling on the subject and found this incredibly useful blog!

  8. Lockerz Code says:

    Some good info here, I wasn’t expecting to land here and start reading but looks like I did! lol
