Legit or Scam?
Memolink.com is an online
rewards company, based in Colorado, that has
been online since 1998. The company
offers its members a chance to earn various
rewards for performing simple online tasks.
Memolink members earn points by trying out
new products, visiting certain websites,
reading emails, online shopping, and
completing market research surveys.
After you complete a task you
earn points which are accumulated in your
account until you choose to cash them out
for rewards. Your basic rewards
include gift certificates for stores,
restaurants, and theaters. Memolink has been
very successful using these rewards to
recruit members and currently have over ten
This business model works because
advertisers cut product costs in return for
the large audience that Memolink can
deliver. Ideally, this is supposed to
be a win-win situation since you get
rewarded for browsing the net, advertisers
get eyeballs on their ad campaigns, and
Memolink gets paid for putting the two
However, there are some complaints
from Memolink.com members who claim
that the company has not fulfilled its end
of the bargain. Folks have been
with Memolink for a long time and have
diligently saved up their points only to be
disappointed by the long wait and
sometimes non-deliverance of rewards.
Memolink's staff has issued several press
releases regarding the reason for delays and
non payment, claiming that they've been
temporarily backlogged. Yet, some
people have reported waiting several years
for their rewards and ultimately quitting
out of frustration.
The truth is that even if Memolink
paid out all rewards on time and without
complications the opportunity itself is not
lucrative. The value of Memolink
points based on the time it takes to earn
them when compared to their dollar value is

I used the site for years before I figured out it was all a scam. They banned a lot of users right before we could collect our rewards. :(

Been a Memolink member forever & have never had a problem. I've gotten some pretty good rewards over the years & I won't shop on-line without it!

I am a long time Memolink member and have gotten every reward as promised. Their customer service is always pleasant and helpful. From time to time, they raise the points awards and make earning even quicker. I enjoy the daily trivia question. I earn points for doing the shopping I was going to do anyway. What's not to like!

I always look at memolink as getting a little extra from my online shopping. I've received everything reward that I cashed in my points for. And I even won $100 dollars back when they had the memolotto program. Just a little note to users, memolink isn't responsible for the promises of their sponsor sites. I suggest you read the fine print before signing up for any sponsor sites program. The easiest way, for me, was shopping, I never had problems getting my rewards shopping at big name stores such as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Amazon.com, WWEshop.com, Dell.com, and Target. If your looking for a work from home, get rich quick site, this is not that kind of site, it's a shopper rewards, survey, and website visiting reward site. If you are looking for a work at home site MOST OF THOSE SITES ARE SCAMS! Their is no way out of hard work, those who work less just a smarter and more educated a bout their field of business. (unless your born rich or win the lottery!)

I really enjoyed Memolink, sent off for 2 $25 gift cards and got them within a month at the most. However, this was in their early years when I first signed up. Years later I sent for a $100 gift card. When it didn't come within a month (even though they showed it as having been shipped), I emailed them about it. Their response was quite polite and they said they would immediately resend it. That was a year and a half ago and I have yet to receive anything. I've become EXTREMELY disappointed in Memolink due to this fiasco, which is too bad because I used to really enjoy being a member in the early years. But it's really turned off my interest in them since and I wouldn't recommend the site to anyone anymore.

I have been a member of memolink for 5+ years and mypoints for close to 10 years. Both are reputable. I have always received my rewards from both. If you do the surveys every day and actually qualify to take them the memolink points add up very quickly. Memolink is NOT email based like Mypoints, it is survey/shopping based. You have to go to the website every day and go to the surveys section to get your points every day. Memolink points will not pile up from email!!! I also signed up for Netflicks, Blockbuster and shop thru memolink, things I was going to do anyway and the points add up quickly - UNLIKE mypoints!

applied for a $25 reward card only to be told it had been mailed and would not be replaced even though I told them I never received it.

I've been a long time memolink member. It takes far too long to acquire points and it takes too many points to redeem for practically nothing. MyPoints is the best place to earn points and redeem on the web.

I belong to several click and earn type programs and Memolink is one of my favorites. They have always sent my items on time. Over the last few years, they have a few times over credited my account. Being old-fashioned, I actually e-mailed them and they told me to keep the points. They also have one of the best payout rates of the click and earn programs.

Memolink is not a scam. I have been a member of Memolink for s long as I can remember. I have always received my rewards. Never had a problem and always got the points I earned.

It's an ok program but certainly nothing that you should consider a "make money at home" type deal. Think of it more like a credit card rewards program - you don't spend money just to get points, but if you're spending money anyway you might as well earn points. If you think of it that way, you won't have too many complaints. It's gotten better over the years. I hear it's a terrible place to work though.

It is not the easiest, fastest way to make money, or get points, or cards.
But it is pretty reliable, they answer your emails withing 2-3 days and then the rewards show up within a week or so. I have not gotten many cards, but one every 3 months is common for me. They're surveys are 600-700 points, and I can usually complete one every 2 days, so sometimes, I've gotten a card in less than the three months with reading emails and doing the other free points.
It's an ok program.

I've been a member of Memolink for a few years and I have had some issues, but the Memolink staff has always been polite and made sure that they solved the problem as quickly as possible. I get my points credited to my account quickly and I get my rewards right away. I would recommend Memolink to anyone who does any online shopping. I finished my Christmas shopping and wound up with a $250 Amazon.com gift card for me.

I don't think Memolink is a scam at all. it's free to join. It's been bit difficult to earning free points by clicking ads/e-mail, and survey on the site now because they have reduced free points opprtunity on their site, (used to be able to make 25 points per day at least, but now, 10 or less/per day, and they have changed the digit of points to redeem rewards 3 years ago, it used to be 16,000=approx $100, now need 160,000 for $100), so don't expect free points much, but if you shop online a lot, you can accumulate points fast and easier, just to be sure you find your favorite online stores on Memolink shop list, then visit & shop the store(s) via Memolink (don't forget using the very same e-mail address when you shop, the same e-mail address you have been registerd with Memolink), I usually earn points by shopping. they used to have a problem in processing rewards we ordered (took 6 month or longer), but they have fixed the problem and now usually takes 3-10 days. I'd won prize last year that was worth $6,000 (according to Memolink) just for shopping and my e-mail address was automatically entered the drawing which I didn't know, then 3-4 months later, I received unexpected e-mail from Memolink which notified me that I was the winner of the contest, so contest by Memolink is a real, Not fake, they really give things away to a member(s). They reply e-mail with question sooner also. I don't see any problem with Memolink. I've been a member since 2001 or 2. Try it!
