Update Aug. 3, 2012: Beezag is going away! If you have at least 2,000 points in your account, you can cash out. You’ll have until November 12, 2012 to do so.
I have a love/hate relationship with redeemable points. You can cash them in for all kinds of cool things if you are active on the rewards sites that allow you to earn redeemable points, but sometimes it seems like it takes forever to build up enough to actually get anything. In many cases, you lose interest in the site before you have enough points to cash out. The bottom line here is that I would MUCH prefer cash, but I’ll take the points if I can get them for doing something easy — like watching short little commercials. Beezag is a site that will give you redeemable points for watching ads. Don’t get it confused with Varolo — in my opinion, Beezag is a much better ad viewing site to get involved with. I have some issues with Varolo because it seems like you can’t really get anywhere on there unless your referrals are watching ads, too. But Beezag is different. Beezag is open to U.S. but apparently not U.K.
How Beezag Works
Create an account. They have the option of going through your existing Facebook account to make the login process easier, but that’s not a requirement. I just signed up the other way. Log in daily or whenever you can to watch short commercials. You’ll have to answer a three question survey before you get access to your commercials. Each commercial is worth a certain number of points and a sweepstakes entry. While you’re watching a commercial, watch for two numbers to flash across the edges of the screen, one at a time, and make a mental note of what those numbers are. You’ll be asked to enter them at the end of the commercial. This is how Beezag can be sure that you sat through the whole thing and paid attention. If you put in the wrong numbers, don’t worry. You can re-watch the commercial. If you put in the right numbers, you’re awarded your points/sweepstakes entry. If you’re lucky, they might also give you a special offer related to product/service in the ad you just viewed. Accumulate points and redeem them. You must have 8000 to redeem for anything and you can get cash, music, or convert your points to charitable donations to various causes. 8000 may seem like a lot of points, but it will add up quickly if you log in and watch your commercials every day. It also helps if you have referrals! Refer your friends. You’ll get 10 percent of the points they earn when they watch videos. This doesn’t take away from your friend’s points — just adds a little more to yours as a bonus for you.
