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.

  1. So, is it? says:

    It is a scam. Apparently, items are only re-stocked once a month and they are all out in a minute.

    So, yeah, scam. And I’m very irritated I was lured to waste a day on it. It should be illegal to abuse users like they do.

  2. Ur Mom says:

    not a scam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my friend got an ipod touch :P

    • User says:

      Just because some of you receive stuff does not mean it’s not a scam. i have recieved a 50 £ gift card but i still know it’s a scam. they send out few prizes to make everyone else think it’s real and stay on the site. it’s a basic strategy for scam-sites like lockerz. first they take alot and give some and later just take alot. in the may redemption, MOST of the users(legit users without any fake emails) who redeemed more expensive stuff(macbook, ipod and such) have got their order cancelled and the rest who redeemed got an 25 $ Paypal which they all will receive since it’s not much.

      • Sterling says:

        thats not a scam then if you can win stuff from the site thats what it says it does, what do you expect them to have it open 24/7, do you know how much money and time it would take them to do that thats why it is once a month stuff you win or you don’t.

    • jan1234 says:

      definitly not a scam i got a hp-mini netbook

  3. JM says:

    I think lockerz is not a scam. They just have limited items and if their stocks run out, you can try next time. And try reading the TERMS first before making stupid comments about them controlling when the redemption period is. It’s all there, they have the right. Do some educated research before making such statements.

    • Jared Jones says:

      Lockerz is a scam. they are making so much money off of us by their advertisments on their videos and answering daileys to send off to companies. they could at least make the site where you can redeem up to 10 minutes after restock but the thing is i dont even think they restock everything in their prize list. JM you are probabaly getting payed by the money savvy ass-holes. And i did my research through expeirence LOCKERZ IS A SCAM!!!

  4. Robbie says:

    I do not think it is a scam however it is does not seem very fun. i have had it for only about 3 days and only have about 50 points. I want to become a Z-list person but it is such a hassle trying to invite 20 friends and getting them to actually Join. I think it is a great idea for a website but reedeming prizes seems also like a hassle. There is not garuntee that you will get your prize when you reedeem it. This is why you must buy insurance that will garuntee your prize but these are like 3000 points and is extremly annoying.

    Well i will let you all know when i become a z-lister and actually buy a prize to see if this website is Legit.

    It seems Legit just extremly annoying

  5. Sam says:

    Alright guys this is what happens. Every month they resupply the amount of products nesassary to still make profit from the money the site generates. So basically every month they sell a limited supply so that they are still making money. So no it is not a scam, but its not as amazing as some people make it be.

    • Jon says:

      No its is a scam because youve just wasted abit of your life going on Lockerz because you thought that it would be completely free but it isnt your just paying with the amount of time you give and by that your giving them hits so they get money by other advertisements because on there website, but atleast your reply shows you have a brain

  6. robert says:

    lockerz is a piece of shiet, an evil corporation that profits from us with the stupid promess that they’ll give us free gift if we watch videos, answer questions

    it’s just another way to earn money in a “legit” way from using childs as employes

  7. Anonymous says:

    Soon you will not have to wait for a redemption to redeem. They will continuously restock, because with the addition of PLAY, they can easily sell advertisements for a lot of money with the site’s millions of members.

  8. Chippy says:

    I started lockerz a couple days ago and I almost have 200 ptz. I am saving up for a ps3 and so I look in the catalog a like backgrounds or something and it says something like coming soon. When is soon what time of the month?
    Anyone know??

  9. Shadow says:

    Hey guys i just wondered how can you buy your items and how do they know where to send , and my final question: i live in Canada do i have to pay tax for it?

  10. Thomas says:

    It isn’t a scam, Lockerz will be fully open in summer of 2010 then they will get stock in. I recommend getting PTZ now so you can be ahead of everybody else.

  11. vatan says:

    EVRYONE LOCKERZ IS NOT A SCAM i HAVE FRIENDS WHO FREAKING WORK ON IT 9 HOURS AND GET 1000 POINTS A DAY AND i SAID IT WAS A SCAM WHEN MY FRIEND GOT A PSP GO WITH THE PACKAGE OF LOCKERZ AND SOME OF MY OTHER FRIENDS TOO i SAW IT IS NOT FUCKING SCAM SO I GOT INVITED AND I GOT 70 PTZ IN 20 MINS!!!!!!

    • Jon says:

      Just beacause one of your friends got a PSP doesnt mean that it isnt a scam, if you look at it through a business studies angle then you can see that there scamming others by giving a limited supply of stock to the people trying to get points off it, once youve tried to get something off the site you cannot redeem your points meaning if you buy something with them when Lockerz dont have any stock youve lost your points already and wasted your time on it. By giving Lockerz your time your giving it hits onto its site and making it even more popular thats why other sites pay lockerz to advertise on that site there fore giving lockerz a ammount of money to buy stuff while still making profit, in the end lockerz is just a big scam but you gotta look at it from a different angle instead of just believing because one of your friends got something, so is everyone else

  12. Shane says:

    Whether or not this website is a scam is completely irrelevant to the average user. Think about it: We’re sitting at home, on our computers, watching entertaining videos (or just waiting through them to put in the two words), and maybe inviting people once in a while. Whether or not these activities merit any reward is completely unrelated. If we weren’t watching lockerz vids, we’d be watching youtube vids. Or playing games. Or watching porn. At least this way, you feel like you MIGHT be getting something out of it (though that argument can be made for both games and porn, however, it’s a little more exciting to get a PS3 in the mail than to get a blow-up doll).

  13. Tucker Chapin says:

    I just got my MacBook Pro, and plan to be getting a MagicMouse. Lockerz is seriously legitimate. They are sponsored to do the dailies and adds, that’s how they make their money. They work, and you can get a prize. The hard part is getting it the day of redemption without it being out of stock I had to wait through three different redemptions until I finally got one. But they sent it two weeks later, and it was awesome!

  14. Owned says:

    Fuck off, this is a scam… I have been doing this for over 5 weeks now. I got to know them and they told me I was getting an iPod Touch… What do I get? NOTHING. Now shut up and admit, you like waisting time on shit like that.

    Kind regards, Owned!

    • lockerzISfucked says:

      i agree, lockerz is fucked up like shiet, noone is gnna win anyfing >(

    • mario says:

      hahaha i have been doing this for half a year
      so shut up and watch videos

      • Jon says:

        Yes, youve been doing this for half a year and wasting your life, congratz because of you doing this your giving lockers money, Lockerz are using you the chance of you getting anything are slim to non and dont try to go “OMG I GOT SOMETHING STFU” post a screen shot and maybe ill believe you but in fact you just dont want to sound like a idiot and have wasted your time, if you have got something its probialy because youve spent half a year on it so it is likely, but… HALF A YEAR i hope you feel better about yourself now youve been proven wrong, Twat

  15. someone says:

    Hello guys , today was the redemption for international so I logged in and tried 5 times to redeem something and clicked on redeem and I entered my info : street address , phone , fist , last name ect. and then when finaly clicked redeem IT SAID THE ITEM FRESH OUT !!! They don’t give people free stuff !!! They give to friends maybe and their friends add videos on youtube and ect. to prove people wrong , just to fake and lure ppl!!! Soon a shop option will be in lockerz and they will start making more money not giving free stuff EVER!!!

  16. Bryce Shouts says:

    Would it be possible to get permission to use some of your posts on forums with a link?

  17. RhixMango says:

    Dude!

    Lockerz isn’t a scam.
    I have actually received something from them.

    Just because everything says out of stock doesn’t mean they are a scam. That list is just to show you what is available.

    They actually let you redeem at a certain time.
    They don’t want to put it 24/7 is because they want everyone to have a fair shot a redeeming.

    The ptz are low because they want to attract people to join their site. Now the game you were talking about is 400ptz.

    Now they have released a new feature called “SHOP”. It is a place where you can buy and lower the prices with your ptz.
    You will still have to pay with real money. Unless you discounted to 100% and that would be like 3000ptz+.

    Who ever say that Lockerz is a scam is a dumb ass!
    I think it is a pretty smart way to earn money.
    Within time Lockerz will be as popular as Ebay and Amazon.

    There will be a redemption soon within these weeks and I will be redeeming a PSP – GO 2700ptz. and I have 3879ptz!

    Who ever still thinks Lockerz is a scam is making a huge mistake.

    + I earn around 50 ptz a day!

    • you probably work for them and ur getting paid to say this they are a fraud fuck those bitches

    • HAZARD78 says:

      ITS NOT A SCAM! i got a FREE ipad in the mail and it was only 3500 ptz!!!!

      it was very easy to get with the double ptz weeks and 400+ videos that were 8 ptz each to z-listers!

      you should go with the free $500 ipad instead of the free $250 psp go

  18. a person says:

    i know its real because i saw a guy with the t-shirt

  19. Shadow says:

    not a scam our friend redeemed a PSP and were not even in the USA the item is free but the shipment to our country is not he paid around 10$ for the shipment if i remember correctly

  20. kevin says:

    people i am sorry to inform you but i am positive now that lockerz is infact, a scam and a fraud. i am saying this because a few days ago SHOP opened and i bought a prize from there( i am a z lister and i was the first one to order) as soon as a ordered i got a message saying it was on the way,THEN a 3 days later a message from lockerz appeared in my email saying all of my prize orders were cancelled and that they were going to give back my ptz, the reason i knew they were lying was because when i ordered my prize i got it immediatly and only a few days after that they were out of stock. and they did not give back my ptz either , i suspect that what they did was send out about 100 prizes across the u.s and left the rest to have “insufficant stock” so that the select 100 would brag and make videos about how they got their prizes. again i regret to inform you that lockerz is indeed a scam and a fraud those of that can spread the word and lets hope we can ban lockerz

  21. Dan says:

    100% scam. I was one of the first members of locker i have 660 points and i invited 72 people. I have ordered an Ipod Touch, IPad, and a ZLIST Tshirt. They all never came. The ZLIST Tshirt i ordered a year ago and they rest 6 months ago. People at my school say that they got stuff but the only reason they do it is because they want invites to try to get a zlist shirt. Then when they got enough points and 6 months later the shirt never comes the’ll be parading around the school saying how lockerz is a big scam. Dont waste your time. ITS A SCAM!I REPEAT! ITS A SCAM! but if you dont believe me i really couldn’t care less because i simply dont know you; im just here to give you all heads up so you don’t get all pist when you realize its a scam. so thanks for your time and hope you enjoyed reading this and hope it informed you.
    Thnx,
    Dan

  22. Julian says:

    Think of it this way. If you don’t get your prize, you technically didn’t lose any money. It’s free.

  23. Jake says:

    i’m gonna see if its a scam once cause i’m ordering a new ipod nano so i’m gonna see and post another response later

    best regards,
    Jake

  24. Person says:

    Well. I have no idea (as I don’t have it), but one of my freinds told me that no matter what, the “VIP”S (people who invited lots of people) get first dibs… which is quite cheap… I don’t think that it’s a scam, just annoying to “non-VIP”s. :/ Not sure, though.

  25. they are the biggest scam now that i have the points neccesary to buy the itouch they wont let me in to the websight to redeeem my prizes fuck those assholes

  26. dont waste ur time i reporeted them to the bbb the are a waste of time

  27. Danny says:

    Not necessarily a scam, but a complete waste of time. If you haven’t signed up for lockerz yet, don’t do so. I got z-list about 5 months ago and when I did so they said that I would receive a free z-list t-shirt. I have never received that shirt and at this point I don’t plan to ever receive it. I also now have over 4,000 points which is enough to get a lot of good prizes. Unfortunately, it is impossible to get a prize because you have to be on your computer at the exact time the redemption is which is only 1 hour long and at a random time during a random day near the end of the month. Today, I missed the redemption by 20 minutes. This means that I have to wait until next month and hope that I am lucky enough to be there during the redemption. Also, I probably won’t have enough ptz next time because they will probably raise the prices.

  28. nick says:

    lockerz is a SCAM!we should all ban that site!ihate it!!ive been on it for 4months already,im a zlister,by the way istill didnt get my shirt they promised me,ive got 5024ptz and ive been trying to redeem an ipod touch for soo long already,last 2months igot in time for the redemption and guess what?in sevral seconds they were “ALL OUT” and inever got what iwanted,well u know what?? F*CK LOCKERZ!!

  29. tom says:

    it is not a scam i have gotten things

    • Jon says:

      Yes youve gotten things, but alot of others havent because of the limit stock, you getting something again well the chances are about -6342342% its a scam think about it more clearly next time

      • Suza says:

        It is not a scam… I haven’t gotten anything or ordered anything but some people do get prizes sooo yah……..

  30. Herman says:

    I don’t think it’s a scam, I think it’s rather genius! Is there a better way to get thousands and thousands of hits every day, than giving away free stuff for doing just about anything? Of course, everyone can’t get free stuff, thy don’t got the capasity for that, but u’ll get free stuff if you’re quick. I redeemed a blanket from Lockerz, only because everything else was freshed out. I got it 3 weeks later, so it’s not a scam, after all. And now they even opened a shop on the website. Items cost money, but you can lower the price using points, and you earn points for buying. I don’t see anything but greatness in that :D

  31. Billy says:

    …i don’t know if it’s fake or not but..
    to those of you who say it’s a scam, i wonder if you’re trying to chase people away so you have a better chance at the limited stock redemptions?
    ..just throwing it out there

  32. Ethan says:

    suuuree..of course it’s a scam..explains why i just got a z-lister shirt in the mail..i can’t believe this..scam! yeah right. seriously. i got my shirt..and im just an ordinary kid living in a little town in Texas. nobody important. but i got something. if it was a scam i wouldn’t have gotten anything

  33. mario says:

    I have had a lockerz account for a few months and have gathered 1510 PTZ.
    But 10 minutes ago they said that only people who bought something in shop in may and are in the us can redeem
    it’s a total scam!
    So i have to spend a year getting about 3000 PTZ to get something for free in shop and have enough points for an ipod touch, and even if i do all that im screwed up becauseim not in the U.S.
    Fuck you lockerz i am going to sue you for everything you have!

    • HAZARD78 says:

      that redemption is only for people who used shop, there will be a normal redemption at the end of this month so dont mind that redemption, you will get your chance at the end of each month! (and there will soon be 24/7 redemptions :D )

      P.S. – shop will be open to outside the US soon! so dont worry if your not in the US

    • buddyyy says:

      how is it a total scam? usually they’re open to everyone and its just this one time they don’t.
      Trust me I’ve had an account longer then you have

  34. Ultra Lord says:

    Yeah, I saw the same thing, that’s why I searched for a good website (this one) that would tell me if Lockerz is a scam or not. I’m still confused.

  35. Wonderful Information….

    I really enjoy the information on this blog. I came across it while searching on Google….

  36. The most followers twitter…

  39. Lao Shan says:

    It’s a SCAM. believe me. If you don’t believe me then go waste all ur effort for nothing. you’ll surely regret it .

  40. CFC26 says:

    my mate got a z-list t-shirt

    i am yet to be sent one and so am confused on whether its real or not

    they said it would be sent during first week in april but now they ignore my emails and never reply and so im thinking its a scam

    but i would wait until the prizeshop is 24/7 to see if it is or not

    thanks

  41. Chidori602 says:

    Its been like six months, and I have not gotten my z list shirt

  42. ALTHEAFLOYD says:

    That is known that money can make people free. But how to act when somebody does not have money? The only one way is to receive the home loans and just bank loan.

  43. love lockerz fuck you says:

    fuck who said it’s a scam
    first of all i’ve got a cool ipad 32 giga bytes
    2. check out the unboxing on youtube then come back and tell me if it’s a scam or no
    learn to know before judging

  44. Jon IS BACK says:

    Its an Obvious scam, they take your time and effort away to get points but then its very unsafe to buy something with theese points and the amount of times that you might able to buy it you will probaly be one of lets say 20 people to buy it think about the other 2 thousand people that have just wasted there time on it they gain nothing whilst lockers still gets money even thought they gave out little making there cashflow very high, if your confused about how they get money its simply, they can use there website to make other companies advertise on it due to that many people going on the site because there idiots,

    you believe your getting stuff for free but your not your paying with the amount of time you spend on that stupid site, ive already been told by a friend who designed the site that its a scam and i doubt he would be bulling me and if you dont believe me then just look at the rest of this wall of text because i believe thats enough to even make a Dead brain monkey leave lockerz and get a life, theres no such thing as getting stuff for free theres always a Catch, there just getting your hopes up and even if you bought somethign on lockers you might loose points due to thousands of people buying from one thing meaning the site takes in all of theese requests and accepts them but in the end the company is out of stock meaning you loose your points and have to waste your time to get them again whilst the Lockerz designers are just sitting on there asses while there bank account slowly gains more income

    The Money they gain are from other companies that pay lockerz to be able to have permuission to advertise on the site itself and thats because alot of you people are foolish enough to try to purchase from this site, Congratz alot of you are even more retarded than i thought, laterz

  45. Hmmm…very good to find out, there were without a doubt a number of points that I had not thought of before.

  46. lockerz is a scam says:

    Lockerz is a scam… confirmed.
    I’ve been a z-lister on lockerz.com for months. After so many unsuccesful attempts of ptz redemptions. I finally ordered a mouse pad from their shop using 485ptz. Guess what, first they send me an email saying the item is highly demanded so it’s out of stock… therefore my order is canceled.
    Then, they send me another email saying the reason my order was cancelled b/c they “believed” that I cheated so they decided to “rob” my 485ptz!!??
    Wow, it’s unbelievable. I’ve been a z-lister for over 6months, I log in everyday and answer their dailies; watching 4-10 videos a day for the past 2-3 weeks (4-12ptz/video). Now they send me an email saying I did not earn my ptz legitimately and acusing me of frauds :(
    I hope somebody doing a legal class act against them.

  47. Densi says:

    Yeah it is not a scam i have got 25$ paypal, T-shirt and Iphone skin and my friend have got 25$ and DVD

  48. Rofl Lofl Papper says:

    Lol you people spend months on Lockerz when it actually is a stupid scam. You will never get the prizes, probably 1 in 500, 000

  49. double a says:

    its not a scam i got a blue ray disc today, lil wayne dvd like 2 days ago, and a kanye west dvd/cd thing, i also redeemed a tie dye skin for my ipod. the only thing is it took over a month for the dvds to come in and they just started to send out emails with tracking numbers and all but i did recieve my skin within a week. but the thing is its hard to redeem ipods, mac books, etc

  50. Moongjie says:

    Well, some think its a scam, so lets say their earning from us, so what? You cant just give things away.. Offcourse they need to live, they need money to feed themselves.. just like selling products, you buy them then sell it.. Do you consider it as scam?
