Snowflakes Caught In Spam

April 24th, 2013 at 02:18 am

I checked my spam folder tonight, which I rarely do. Turns out I was receiving Pinecone Survey requests in the last couple weeks. I just didn't know it since they were in my spam folder! I was able to complete one survey tonight, but it seems I missed out on a couple others.

I wonder if this explains why I still have not been paid for returning a product to them. Maybe they thought I was inactive. Well, I'm active again as of tonight and will receive my $3 tomorrow in my PayPal account.

All Pinecone Survey money is added to my Snowflakes for Christmas fund. I was able to redeem my Swagbucks today for $25 in my PayPal account. I hope I receive that money by the end of the month, so I can count it towards this months snowflake total!

The only thing I have purchased since Sunday is gas for my van. I must not have filled up my van the last couple of weeks, because gas prices seemed lower to me. It still cost me over $50 to fill up my tank. I need to fill up about every 7-8 days right now.

That's all the news from here for now!

    Depending on which email service you use, you could set up either a folder, tag, or other form of filter for Pinecone emails so that they won't fall into spam again. If you need a walkthrough, let me know what service you use, and I can tell you (or figure it out if it's one I don't use Big Grin )

    That's quite a visual CCF. I think it would make a lovely snow globe--imagine--a snow globe with spam....

    I just checked my spam folder, and it seems to have only junk. I think if you make Pine Cone a contact, the emails will not go into spam.

    I did add Pinecone to my contact list. I'll try that. I've had the same email address with Pinecone for years and have never had a problem getting their emails until this month...and I didn't even realize it right away, so I missed out on some snowflakes.

    Did you get the Email that Paypal is switching to a points system (fooey)?

  6. creditcardfree Says:

    @scfr, I found that out this week. However, the survey I completed gave me 300 points which I could quickly redeem for $3 cash deposited to my PayPal account. It really only resulted in a one day delay in receiving my payment, which is still quicker than a check!
