Sorta…you have to have $20 to cash out, but if you have less than $20 it rolls over to the next month. I did an analysis of rewards programs last year and found that NetFlip paid the best by far for signups and trials…they’re also very competitive with shopping rewards. And when you exceed the $20 threshhold, they send your check pretty quickly (they’re mailed out once a month).

Netflip pays U every month. I have cash out almost $ 99 in one month just signing very good offers. A very good site.


Charles L. Neal April 19, 2003 at 5:27 am

I was informed via web that I would be receiving my check in late March or early April. As of April 19th, I have not received anything…PLEASE HELP


Anna April 21, 2003 at 2:46 pm

Does anyone want to share good search words…i haven’t been able to find any.


Becky April 21, 2003 at 3:27 pm

Charles – did you reach the $20 minimum payout by the end of March? If so, you should expect a check to be mailed by the end of April, you’ll probably get it by mid-May. Is this your first cashout? Any problems in the past? Did you verify your account like it says on the website?
Anna – try the Master Search Word List (I put a link to it on this page) – just checked a few and found paid links for “camera” and “furniture” – am sure others must be there just didn’t have time to check.
I love Netflip! They’re my #2 fave program after Ebates (and Ebates just edges ‘em out in my list because of the low $5 min. payout).

I was told via email that I had a $76.00 netflip check coming to me and that it was sent Feb 28,2003. In mid April, after not receiving any check, I emailed netflip numerous times, verified email address, etc…still no check. It is now June 11, 2003 and still no $76.00 check. I received an email from netflip that a third party issues checks and that delays are normal. I weekly send emails to netflip about this issue…but no response.
Can you help in any way?
Thank You,

I have had nothing but negative experiences with NetFlip. After accumulating close to $80 in rewards, my balance dropped for no reason to less than $40. I sent many e-mails to Netflip and did not receive even one reply. Then my account was closed with no explanation and I lost what money was still left in my account. Again, e-mails got me nowhere. As far as I can tell, customer service is definitely not a priority!

Hi everyone,
I joined Netflip about a week and a half ago, and have received a ton of fast cash since I joined (altogether $91 so far), but I am getting worried reading your reviews about your bad experiences with Netflip. I don’t want it to happen to me where I don’t receive a check, so I would like to know something here. Who all in this group has received a check from each month on a consistent basis since they became a member? Please let me know, as I will eventually acrue almost $200 to my account before the end of the month of November. I don’t want to see it go to waste, so a little encouragement and support from some current members who have received a check, will definitely help. Thanks so much! Please post replies!!
God bless,


Becky November 10, 2003 at 7:50 am

Hi, Justin. I’m not sure what happened with Kathy, but I know that Kerry did get her Netflip check — see my post at
To get a check from NF, you have to have > $20 in earnings. Used to be that you could earn by doing searches (no signups or shopping required). A lot of folks would inch along until they hit the $20 and just quit. Now the searches are gone, and signups and shopping is all that’s left. They’re still very competitive with their rewards, but many people felt a loss when the searches were taken away and quit the program.
I exceeded the $20 payout twice, and was paid in a timely manner twice. I think it may have taken as much as 6 weeks after the end of the month that I exceeded $20 before I received the check. That’s not unreasonable, since it may take THEM 4-6 weeks to receive your money from their merchants after you complete a transaction (signup or purchase).
Please come back and let us know how long it takes for you to receive your check and how happy (or unhappy!) you are with Netflip!
Thanks for your comments,


Justin Andringa November 10, 2003 at 2:38 pm

Hey Becky,
Thank you for your comments. I read your post. Do you really have a friend who works behind the scenes at If you do, that is awesome! That will be a great safeguard if something were to happen, and it will motivate me to keep accruing the fast cash. I might go for a cool $1,000!!! Let me know, please!! =) Thanks!!
God bless,
Justin Andringa


Justin Andringa November 10, 2003 at 2:40 pm

Hey Becky,
Just an added note. You can e-mail me if you want with your replies if you prefer that. My e-mail is Thanks again!!
God bless,
Justin Andringa


Andrew December 11, 2003 at 7:20 pm

How much can you actually make in a month. It seems to me that if you apply and really serch the net, you could make hundreds every month. Also how long does it for the money to appear on your account. Netflip states it can take up to 30 days, however is it ever faster. I just started with netflip yesterday.


Becky December 11, 2003 at 8:11 pm

Actually, Andrew, Netflip eliminated its pay-for-search feature earlier this year. They’re still very competitive in their rates for shopping and signups, though.
As for doing your own searches, search engines won’t let you search for yourself…so unfortunately that’s not really an option! :(


Justin December 13, 2003 at 1:44 am

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for your posts. I have had okay success with Netflip, but one thing really bothered me. And I suggest you beware of this. Netflip took my first 8 offers I completed on the days of October 31 to November 2; which totaled $49, and put those earnings into a check of $49. However, I completed many more offers during the month, a total of $231 when the month was over. I don’t understand why they didn’t mail the full amount of $231, but we’ll see what happens. I think it is kind of a nuisance, but you may be the judge of that.
God bless,
Justin Andringa
P.S. Anybody may feel free to e-mail me, if you have any questions. Thanks.


Justin Andringa May 20, 2004 at 9:41 am

Hello everyone,
This is an update from my previous mail (above). My entire earnings from were $271, and I received only $49 of it around the month of January (All of the offers I completed and were credited by the end of November 2003). After months of waiting for Netflip to put the rest of my earnings into a check (about 5 months in all after the first check =( ), which included e-mails, phone calls, and constant updates of my information to try to get Netflip to send me the check I deserved, I went to Netflip about 3 weeks ago, and saw that my balance was $0. At first I thought all my earnings were cancelled since I had not touched the site in over 5 months. But to my surprise, Netflip FINALLY put my earnings into a check and mailed it to me. $222 was mailed to me on around May 11. Over 5 MONTHS after my last account creditation on Netflip! Well, I have been done with Netflip after all the trouble I have had (seen in my last few mails), but I was pleased to receive my earnings, so I wanted to let you all know I received it.
God bless,

It’s been a couple of years now but I got burned by Netflip. After receiving a couple of smaller checks I thought I would go for something bigger. I should have received around $130 but got nothing. When I e-mailed them after 3 months they zeroed my account. I stick with Mypoints.


Janine Platman January 19, 2005 at 2:00 pm

I have written to Netflip multiple times and have tried to follow their instructions but they don’t work. For whatever reason I do not have a password anymore and I can not create one. Does any one have a contact number for them because they just say the same advice over and over and it doesn’t work.


Zhanna April 26, 2005 at 9:32 am

I really don’t like this site and stopped using it. They take forever to post your earnings to your account. I think it took almost 5 months. It is now 3 – 4 AFTER the earnings got posted and still am waiting to receive my check. They rarely respond to e-mails.


L November 8, 2005 at 9:18 am

Netflip is a scam. They’ve been sittng on my money for months now and have developed an incredibly complex system which doesn’t work for registering complaints, asking about your money, etc.
It is, I repeat, a scam. Not worth anyone’s time or money. Why do all that work to fill their pockets when they have no intention of paying out?
