I've made a total of £150 in vouchers, one mousemat, a book and two pins from beenz in six months!!!
Although beenz are rumoured to be going downhill a newcomer could still collect enough beenz to exchange for something worthwhile, just sadly there are no ongoing daily or weekly beenz to collect.
**So what are Beenz?**
Beenz is the Internet currency. They're cute little red things that hide all over the place. You get paid them mainly for buying things but I'm personally just collecting the free ones...and doing quite well too! You can pick up a 100 or so for just registering with a site, or you can get as many as 50 of the little darlings by just visiting a site. For registering with a site you can get at the most (so far) 500 beenz. And once you've collected them you can just leave!
**But what are they worth?**
Well, I've had £150 so far! They can be exchanged on all sorts of sites (just click on "Spend" to find out where) You can pick up £10 gift vouchers for shops worldwide for as little as 3500 Beenz. I'll be honest though, you do need quite a few to get anything decent, but if you are just collecting the free ones then that's fair enough. It will just take us a little bit longer than everyone else! If you are buying things over the net then you'll get Beenz on some sites as a form of loyalty. They'll soon mount up!
**Can more than one person join?**
Well my husband got quite irritated that I was collecting vouchers left, right and centre and when I enquired they said that he could join too! So yes, they can.
If you have any trouble getting a site to pay up beenz (as I have once or twice) or any problem then it's time for customer service! They've been (excuse pun!) very useful so far to me. Their response time has speeded up considerably, which I'm impressed with. On the two occasions that a site didn't give me my beenz, beenz.com credited my account immediately! The site has changed recently and one of the new additions was online help with Betty Beenz. I found this just as helpful and my question was answered to my satisfaction. To top it off they send you an email containing your conversation for your reference. Unfortunately this disappeared as quick as it arrived but there is no reply as to when it will come back. They do still run an excellent customer service when you email them though.
**How do you know where to find them?**
I've found several sites that specialise in telling you where you can pick up free Beenz, but Beenz.com the official site is by far the best. There are forums that tell you, one of which I'm a moderator. For the link to that see my profile. It is there where you will find the latest on beenz and any news of new ones to collect!
**So what do I do first?**
When you first arrive there, join up and you'll get 100 Beenz for just doing that! Now you just need to get hunting. Just clicking on the "Earn" tab will show you loads of places to go (although these have dwindled by the day). And by clicking on the "What's new" tab on that site will tell you what is new on the site! They used to have 25 beenz that you could collect daily from the beenz.com site but these have now ended, but they could come back, but it's not looking very positive.
**Any tips or help?**
When you click on a link from the beenz site to go and earn on, usually a useful window will open with Betty Beenz who will give you the shortcut way of finding Beenz. What more could you ask for? If by some miracle you come across a site that does daily beenz (none that I know of) then add it as a favourite, saving you time the next day. Use the forums as they update regularly and will tell you where you can collect the little blighters.
**Any other ways of earning Beenz?**
There is also a section called Beenzback where you can earn beenz from shopping at certain sites through the Beenz.com portal. I personally don't use that but have heard it's very good. There is also an arcade section on the Beenz.com site where you can play games as on other sites. You do have to pay for these however, using beenz, but as beenz are dwindling I personally would save them up and exchange them for something. You'll find the link to these in "extras".
**So is it addictive?**
I used to find it totally addictive, and even though there aren't many to collect I still check the site out daily in hope. I don't think that it will get better for a while though as the rumours are flying around that the site could close by July.
(I would rate really low because of the time it takes to get them and the lack of beenz but then I thought about how they are free and how well I've done so I can't really complain!)
**Any final words?**
I will update this if there are any more changes to the beenz site and its present state. As I've said, I belong to a site called "The Opinionated Forum" (see link and future opinion) and as one of the moderators of the Beenz forum, I can guarantee that if they are out there then I'll help you to find the beenz!!!
