19 ‘Can't Beat Free’ Reviews
Biggest Scam ever
I am fairly good at making legit cash on line, till I registered there with CBF...The scum-bag owes me 3 payouts of 100.00 EACH...I got paid for 1- 100.00 payment. Such a waste of my time and such a scammer...Customer Service and Moderator of his site always told me he was a VERY BUSY man...and my account status, after the first payment, was always pending, until the close of his site. Please dont mess with this man...He is not SICK...HE'S A SCAMMER
CantBeatFree users scammed
Warning/Notice to all CantBeatFree that are still owed money from CantBeatFree
It would appear that Jeremiah Hall (owner of CantBeatFree) is now trying to get members signing up to the ClixSense website using his own referral link ... and in turn, those members will be earning him referral rewards.
Anyone clicking any links to the CantBeatFree website will be taken to his invite page on the ClixSense website.
It doesn't matter much now since the site is out of business, but I just feel the need to vent. I was saving up to get the $25 Paypal award and was only about 300 points away when J, the owner, put a notice on the site that it was suspended and probably going to close down, which it has since done. It's just so frustrating. I was saving up for the bigger amount, $25, to save a lousy 25 points. I could have cashed out for four $5 payments. I could just kick myself for not cashing out as soon as I could. But, maybe it would not have mattered. According to what I have been reading online the site has not been paying for quite awhile. J has blamed this on the advertisers not paying him, but the notice he put on the site claimed he had a heart attack and could no longer run the site. I wonder what the truth is. I guess I will never know. All I do know is that I made money for him and I got nothing. If he really did have a heart attack then I feel sorry and I hope he recovers. I am not so nasty as to wish bad health on someone because they ripped me off for $25, but since I don't really know what to believe it is still a frustrating situation for me.
They have closed! My $25 gone forever!
That's basically it - they've closed out before I managed to cash out my $25!
Can't even compare call it a reward site after what they've done! The disgrace the name of any reward site that I use!
Shame on them. I'll be back to my regular one, that i've already got $70 from - Gifthulk!
site is probably going out of business
It's been about 3 weeks since I requested a $5 card. There's been no response to my message and no announcements about late payments. I'm not banned, I just logged in and my card is "pending." There are people in the chat box complaining about waiting over a month for the $100 "black card" and tons of people complaining about late payments on smaller cards. The mod doesn't really have an explanation except that the site owner is "very busy."
Glad I'm only going to lose $5 on this site.

Stay Far Away From CBF
Like what some of the other reviews here have said, I was banned from this site back in November. I sent emails asking about it but never got a response from the owner of the site, "J". The reason he never responded, was because he had no reason to ban me in the first place. At the time that happened I had quite a bit of points saved up on my account. My money was stolen from me, and that was the end of it. I emailing, and posting on the facebook page demanding answers but I never got them. There was so many people complaining on the facebook page that he actually had to remove the ability for us users to post there. This guy doesn't know how to run a site, he's a joke.
arguing in the chatbox
I usually ignore chatboxes, but I got so tired of seeing people get picked on every night I was there. Basically, if you get too many "bonus bar" credits in a short period of time, half a dozen people start calling you a hacker, a liar and a cheater. It's kind of awful.
They look to IrishEyes for her nod of approval to lay into another user. I took her and her friends on one night and told them cut it out when they started up with some newbie. I kept the argument with the bounds of the site rules (no name calling, etc.) but I was banned the next day. It turned out that the newbie and a bunch of other people were over-credited because of a site glitch. I was right to defend her against the hoard calling her a cheater, but I was still banned. That chatbox makes the site a real downer.
I stopped using this site many months ago, but I logged in for the hell of it last week. Surprise! I had about 400 pts in my account. So I did a few more offers and cashed out for $5. Waited a couple days, still no payment, logged in to see what was wrong......
wait for it......
I had VIP status there, lol. No idea how/why I got banned. They could have just pre-banned me for inactivity and taken my points, but they had to wait until I earned them an extra buck.
I've been a member of this site for at least a year. During that time I've learned how the site works with points, seen how the people in the shoutbox communicate -- help one another, and even jumped into the chat as well making some good pals. J rarely gets a chance to stop by, but I'm surprised any owner would ACTUALLY step into a chat room period.
Respect is given.
The owner himself (who we refer to as J) is the most awesome site owner I've ever had. He will actually COMMUNICATE with you if you have a problem, even if he's bogged down with his OTHER TRUE JOB. He's only human though, but I have *always* received an email back from him whenever I asked or needed something.
He works HARD, and I've seen that since I joined.
Payment is quick, (while some complain *shrug* I can't say I've really experienced that). I've never had a single problem or issue with my
payments... I got them and that's more than good enough with me.
You can MAKE money on this site--- and you aren't being scammed or lied to in any way. I've been using GPT sites for years... and years....
--- and this is the ONLY one I come back to every single day, and take seriously.
The sheer potential of what you can earn breaks down to how much effort your willing to give. Any complainers... I'm sorry, but you have to take a step back and really actually *look*. If things become more difficult... well, things don't always stay easy or the same forever. If you don't like the changes, then stop using the site. Ripping it apart based on your own personalized experiences does nothing for you, and everything bad to the poor site on the other end. Feel cheated? life sucks, deal with it.
Site issues are NOT typical.
Anyway, this is just an opinion from a guy you don't know. Actually try the site before you judge it... before you let another stranger trash a site that can't defend itself.
Stay away from CBF!
Like the last poster, I'd give this site a zero if I could. CBF has been on a steady decline since the mass bannings last November. Many loyal users were banned without cause and the reasons he gave for branding them 'cheaters' varied depending on which way the wind blew that particular hour. The site owner views CBF more as a hobby than a job and you will be told SEVERAL times that he's so "busy" and can't respond to every email he gets. He makes appearances every so often in order to get an ego boost; people in the chat box fawn all over him when he bothers to log on. I was on the site for months and made a decent amount of money but I make far more on the site I migrated to as CBF has gone to hell. This past weekend the site had yet another glitch that caused the owner to take it down for two days without explanation. If you do use this site, cash out small amounts and don't leave any points behind. I wouldn't be the least but shocked if it shut down without warning or payouts the way super points did. Use at your own risk.
I'd give this site 0 stars if I could. It took me about 3 weeks of going to the site off and on to earn enough for a $5 amazon gc. A couple days after I cashed out I tried to log in but my account was "marked as cheater." And there's no way to send a message asking why after you're banned. BTW, I didn't cheat, I don't know what could have gone wrong. And everything was just fine for WEEKS until I tried to order something and they'd have to pay out. Guess they want to milk you for as long as they can.
Well, congratulations on scamming me out of $5. And I'm the one being called a cheater?!
Works for me!
I've been on this site for over a year. I easy earn $60 a month from this site. When I first started, J emailed me my card and I must of deleted it by accident and he send me a new one. After that I've never had a problem receiving a reward. He pay me everytime. Im sorry to hear people have gotton banned for no reason. I would email him. As for me I love the site it is #1 for me.
Use at your own risk, there is better out there
had fun while it lasted. At the end, I had $100 pending and was banned without payment (like others above). Use at your own risk.
The offers used to pay well, but he's reeling in the money right now so the offers have gotten worse and the gift card have gotten more expensive.
The worst part is J is running the site alone. He takes days to respond to your email....if something is broke on the site, he takes days to weeks to fix it....there is no communication....there is a "mod" on the site that can't do anything ( J doesn't even respond to her emails)...my payments were slow...he always says he's going to improve the website, but it has never happened.
Felt like I've been lied to for 6 months. He touts the website as the best one out there, but its not...I've found better. Don't think CBF will last much longer if things keep going the way they are going.
And if J is reading this, I would have posted a nice review if you had responded to my emails. Thanks for nothing.
I have been on this site for over a year, and loved it. Tried to sign on now, and my account is marked as "cheater." I have never cheated on that site a day in my life. Not cool.
Bans People For NO Reason
I used this site for about four months with no issues. Payments came relatively quickly and it was much easier to earn than on other sites. But suddenly I tried to log in and my account was flagged as 'cheater' for absolutely no reason. I didn't cheat so I was confused and send emails but still have yet to get a response. Many other people were also deactivated around the same time according to their Facebook page. The guy who runs it is barely able to keep up with rewards and is lousy at communicating anything to his members. He should either close down or find someone else who can help him with it. If you can stay on his good side, it's a good site to earn on but be alert that you can get your account revoked at anytime for no reason at all.
banned for no reason
I cashed out for $5, didn't receive it, tried to log in and couldn't. I got the message "account marked as cheater" even though I didn't do anything wrong. There was no explanation, no reply to emails, no communication at all. I didn't use a proxy, bot, fake info... as far as I know, it was all done properly.
I've made 70 bucks from it :D
Cantbeatfree is a loyalty program much like swagbucks, you get points for every task you do. You can use the points to get giftcards. What makes cantbeatfree different is that you can become a vip and the daily jackpots.
- Vip: Whats great about cantbeatfree is that when you become vip you only have to pay 1650 points for giftcards which makes Cantbeatfree one of the cheapest rewards sites out there. To become vip all you have to do is get a $25 giftcard from the rewards section and you can become a lifetime vip at the cost of 2450 points, still cheaper than swagbucks.
- Referral a Friend: For a every referral you get 10% of what they make, Your Referral's Referral pays you 5% of they make, Your Referral's Referral's Referral pays you 3% and if you are VIP, it gets better. Your Referral pays you 12% of what they make, Your Referral's Referral pays you 7% of they make, Your Referral's Referral's Referral pays you 5%
- Jackpot: Theres 2 jackpots, one daily jackpot and one cbf search jackpot. The more offers and tasks you do on the site the more chance you have to win.
- Shoutbox: Having trouble with an offer, need help? You can just ask any question you may have and it will be answer by real members of the site.
- Rewards: Its doesn't cost extra points for paypal, walmart and ebay giftcards, it also doesn't cost extra to get $20 giftcards vs $5 giftcards. Last but not least it doesn't take up to 14 days to get your reward.
Bonus Bar: For every 10 offers you finish you get a bonus of 10 points, Reset daily
Slow: It can be slow sometimes, it can take up to a day for some offer to be approve.
Smaller Site: Less people, but hey more of a chance to win jackpot.
SIte Design: Cantbeatfree doesn't have the best site design it can be confusing at first to navigate.
Choice of reward: Unlike swagbucks, you can only choose from giftcards.
