Website Review   by:playboy25

Hmm Sweet collect probably the most hated web site on the Internet. We all know why this is. I signed up a last year now. Just to find out what everyone was moaning about, well It seemed as they where moaning. In fact they where warning people. I can see this now. I do belive that this web site should be taken off the Internet it's that bad. On the other hand there must be someone out there that has received there sweets or is there ?



====================
What Is Sweet collect?.
====================

Well this is a web site that you get paid in sweets for doing very little work. Yes seems to be good to be true doesn't it?.

Think on it is easy to do. The only problem is they will not send you anything. Or if they do the sweets will be out of date by the time they will arrive at your house.

So the idea of sweet collect is you get paid in sweets for clicking on a few web sites and signing up for things. Like you join E-Bay and receive 5 tubs of smarties. Although I have done this and many others the way they say and more often or not they will be in the not completed bit. This means that they are not going to give you sweets. Ar shame really I quite like out of date sweets lol.


=====================
The Web site.
=====================

Well anyone that wants to sign up for this then here is the address WWW.SWEETCOLLECT.CO.UK. That is the address you will need.

As soon as you click onto the web site you well need sun glasses. Yes it's that BRIGHT. Bright pink and belive me you will not spend long on there. Hurts you eyes like mad.

Though the whole site is easy to get around. Signing up us easy and clicking on to the adverts is easy. Looking at your account is easy and seeing what you have done and what you have not. This is all listed for you. Though you can't say when you want your sweets. This is all done for you as soon as you reach to 25. This can be done on day 1 it's that easy.

All the adverts are down the left hand side all spilt into subjects. You have the daily clicks at the top. This though has never changed since I have been on there. The rest of the subjects are, Books , Gaming, Actions , Free stuff , Competions. and many other stuff.


=======================
Signing up.
=======================

This is easy. You need to log on to the site. There is a join button that you just need to click on to. Fill in a few details and they send you a link through to your email. Click on the link and this will activate your account.

The details are pretty straight forward. Like your name and address and age so forth. Upon joining sweet collect there is a chance to earn free sweets. I think I got around 17. These are adverts that you can sign up to. Like a next and free stuff. For each one that you tick yes to they will give you one free pixel sweet. Not sure what a pixel sweet is either. There are no things to tell you what the sweets are. I am guessing though at cheap tat as they give more of these away them any thing else.

So once you have activated your account you can start clicking on a few adverts. It takes no time at tall to get to 25 sweets.



===============================
So what happens when you reached 25?
===============================

Well once this happens your sweets will be in a queue. Sweet collect will give you a date to when the sweets are going to be sent to the despatch centre for delivery. Though this changes from one day to the next. Mine has been put forward and back ward more often then I can remember.



==============================
Customer service.
==============================

Customer service is about as useless as the web site is. I have emailed them on a number of times to ask about my sweets. I either get no replay at tall or one that makes no sense at tall. I mean how can some thing go forward and then backwards in the same day.




======================
My Opinion.
======================

Well this has to be one of the most and worst hated web sites on the Internday. Every thing you for sweet collect is easy. Getting your sweets is not. I have been waiting around 5 to 6 months now and still nothing. I looked on the web site this morning and now saying August a year after I signed up.

If they ever turn up then they will go straight in th bin anyway as more then likely they will be out of date by then.

Now I only go on their to look at the date and that's it. I do not answer their email's anymore or do any of their clicks. Not worth the time.
