Farewell from Media Insiders

Banner
Dear Lazy Money Guy,

We at Media Insiders would like to thank you for your participation and loyalty to our panel, so it is with great sadness that we send you this email.  Due to recent, rapidly unfolding developments, Media Insiders will be closing its doors on April 16th, 2017.  We hope that you have enjoyed your time with us and that we have made a positive impact on your life.

We are going to miss reading the thank you e-mails and positive reviews.  Those kind words about us, and the happy notes about how you bought gifts for your loved ones using the points you earned with us, truly made our day!

Notes About Data Collection
After our shutdown date, we will no longer be accepting any new data from our members. Week 15 rewards will be the final rewards distributed, and will be processed by April 20th. Please click here for directions on how to uninstall MI Mobile from your device(s).

Notes About Redemptions
Please note that you have 1 month to redeem your points from the Perks system after the shutdown date.  After that time, all points will be removed and all points accounts will be closed.  It is important that you redeem your points before the closing of your account.  We want you to enjoy your rewards and have good memories of our time together.

We have enjoyed these past few years with all of you and we wish it could continue, but sadly all good things must come to an end.  Thank you so very much for being a part of our journey. Best wishes to you.

Your Friends at Media Insiders

Digit’s New Fee Schedule

Email from Digit:

Hey Lazy Money Guy,

Today we have a couple of big announcements to make.

As Digit becomes a more important part of our customers’ financial lives, we’ve decided to make a conscious decision about how we want to make money: We work for you, and you pay us. It should be that straightforward. Too many financial services complicate things by making money doing things not in the best interest of their customers. Charging for Digit will allow us to support our service while making sure we always do what’s right for the customer.

A monthly subscription will cost $2.99. For all existing users, Digit will remain free for the next 100 days.

We are also significantly increasing the Digit Savings Bonus. All customers will now earn a 1% Savings Bonus (up from 0.20%). With the recent introduction of Goalmojis, customers are saving more than ever, and we want to make sure you’re earning real rewards for saving with Digit.

Thank you for being an early user, believer and fan. You have helped sparked the savings revolution. We promise to continue building products that make your financial life easier and better.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Fronto is now in the UK and Australia!

Hi Lazy Money Guy,

Another exciting news! From today, Fronto starts to support the United Kingdom and Australia! As promised, we will keep adding other countries as well.

The 1,250P referral system will be the same for a while so please please invite your British and Australian friends to Fronto. As you know, you can bring them and earn unlimited referral points. Just don’t forget to make sure they enter your promo code correctly.
 
It is not a secret anymore that some influencers earn a lot of money every day. I checked the corporate Paypal dashboard, and I confirmed that one influencer whose initial is J.W. cashed out $160 today.

Without many users, Fronto business won’t survive. Let’s grow together and make some $$$!

Thank you!

Best,
Team Fronto

Fronto Is Now In Canada!

An email from Fronto:

Hi Lazy Money Guy,

As of now, Fronto is officially available in Canada! Moving forward, we will launch Fronto in the other countries pretty soon. UK and many other countries are in the list.

As you know, Fronto team is a very small team of four, so we are not perfect at all. We always make some bugs, and sometimes we might not be very responsive to solve the issues. However, we are doing our best to make Fronto better.

Without your support, Fronto won’t be able to be launched in the other countries at all. I really appreciate your support and patience.

If you have any friends in Canada. Please spread the word to your friends and get 1,250P per every invited user.

Thank you!

Best,
Team Fronto

YouGov Points System Updates

Email from YouGov:



YouGov What the world thinks


Hi Lazy Money Guy,

Your feedback is very important to us. Whenever we can, we will act on it to improve the experience for everyone.

We’ve received a bunch of feedback recently about the rewards program: in particular, that it takes too long to earn enough points to redeem, and that once you have enough points, some rewards cost more than others (even though they have the same cash value).

Based on your suggestions, we’ve reduced the points needed to redeem the following gift cards:

  • $15 Amazon card: was 35k, now 25k points
  • $25 Foot Locker card: was 40k, now 30k points
  • $25 Nike card: was 45k, now 30k points
  • $50 Amazon card: was 65k, now 55k points

Some rewards cost more points than others because they’re more expensive for us to process. We keep the $100 rewards at exactly 100,000 points because we want to give you every incentive to stick with us all the way through – and maybe even refer a friend!

You can see all the available rewards on your account.

Thanks for your continued participation with us!
