Does MyInsiderDeals and Aisle#7 actually Give Away Free Samples and Cash? Scam or Not?

MyInsiderDeals Visa Gift CardWhen your completing your survey offers from GetPaidTo (GPT) sites, and you come upon the offers from MyInsiderDeals or Aisle #7- did you know that they actually do send some of the offered product samples or cash prizes home for free? I didn't believe that I would get anything from these companys, but I read from a forum where members were confirming that they did actually receive items. I still didn't really believe it, but I guess there was no harm in trying- it was free. So, I sent in my request for $10 about a couple a months a go, not expecting anything and forgetting about it. But at the beginning of January this year, surprisingly, I actually receive a $10 Visa Gift Card from them in the mail.

Ok, MyInsiderDeals or Aisle #7 offer free giveaways- some are cash offers and others are product samples. What you need to do to receive these samples is very simple:

1. When your doing your survey offers from your GPT site, look for offers that are labeled or are from the MyInsiderDeals or Aisle #7 company.

2. Once you select one of these offers- enter your name, address, phone number(they won't call you) and an email address used for junk mail.

3. Then they will have you look at offer ads, with selections of yes and no or skip. You don't have to complete any of these offers. Just select no and a few yes to get through the survey. This should take less than a few minutes.

4. You know you are finished with the survey offer when you reach the Thank You...Check Your Email Page. And if you get an Unfortunately your not Qualified... statement, read step 7 below.MyInsiderDeals End Page
5. Go to your email address and in the SPAM folder, there will be a confirmation email from them. Open the email, hit the confirmation link and a Redemption Certificate form will appear. Now, all you have to do is Print this out and Mail it to the address they have given you. (I sent my second one in today for $10, here is the Certificate) ^_^

6. The terms state that the item should arrive at around 60 days.

7. With MyInsiderDeals and Aisle #7 offers, it seems that you will only qualify to get the Certificate page once every 24 hours. So if you do 2 of these offers today, you will only get a Certificate form for the first offer you submitted.

[Disclosure]: Now, when I received the $10 Visa Gift Card in the mail recently, I wasn't sure where it came from. The letter and envelope didn't state exactly where this Gift Card came from. I had actually forgotten that I had sent the offer in to MyInsiderDeals, so at the time I thought this card might be some sort of scam. What I had from them was a letter of the terms of service for the card usage. The Card was issued from the West Surburban Bank with an activation site at There was also a return address from: Program Headquarters P.O. Box 117 Lemont, IL 60439. Thinking it was a scam of some sorts, I looked up/ Googled the Return address along with the Company issuer name. There was no feedback or connection of them with a scam. But I found this forum thread: Others had received the same thing and I realized this must be that $10 I sent in for from MyInsiderDeals. I don't know why the company doesn't state why or where I received the card from, it just makes it suspicious, but now I know this is how the items will come, not a scam at all.
