So, someone referred to you Level Rewards and wanted to know if you can easily earn $5 by referring others to the program.
You've seen others posting their earnings on social media, some people claimed that it is totally free, so you thought maybe you want to give it a try, but for some reason you are hesitant.
Well, whatever reason you are here, I hope that this Level Rewards Review will provide you with the information you need.
In fact, I've found something really interesting about how the creators of this program earn money, which may probably deter you away from Level Rewards.
So, without further ado, let's dive into it...
Level Rewards Review Summary
Cost to Join: Free, but not really
Overall Opportunity Rating:
Quick Summary: Have you ever thought how the creators of Level Rewards earn money? Or, why no one is named as the creator or founder of the program?
Well, one thing you have to know is that whatever task you are assigned to do, the creators will earn money (no matter what).
And, the $5 that they return back to you or your referrer are basically just a small cut from the profits they make from your actions.
I am going to explain how it works in this review.
What is Level Rewards?
Level Rewards appears to be like a Get-Paid-To (GPT) site, but in fact, it is merely an affiliate site in disguise. They've disclosed it in their fine print.
Unlike other GPT sites where you'll usually get paid to complete various tasks such as answering questionnaires and surveys, watching videos, playing games, etc...
You'll get paid only by referring others into the program, but that's not it.
To actually get paid, your referrals have to complete tasks to level up, and every level your referral climb, you get paid $5 given that your referral's level is not above yours.
There is a specific reason why the payment plan is structured this way which I will explain in a while.
But something really bugs me about Level Rewards is that I can't find any information on the creator(s) of the program.
If it is in fact a lucrative program, why won't the creator(s) put their name on it? Have you thought about that?
Well, let's figure out why I am making such negative remarks about the program...
How Does Level Rewards Make Money?
Well for sure Level Rewards is not a charity organisation.
And, the weird thing is, big brands and companies did not pay monies to Level Rewards to post their advertisements on the platform.
Level Rewards make you believe that they have a close relations to those big brands and companies, but it is actually not. They even wrote it in the fine print.
So, how exactly do Level Rewards earn money?
Have you heard of the term "CPA" or "Cost Per Action"?
CPA is a term commonly used in the affiliate marketing industry. We all know what "Cost" is, but the "Action" can vary from a lead, a sign up, a click, or whatever the advertiser is willing to pay.
So, let's say I offer a CPA program where I pay anyone (affiliates) $1 whenever other people click (Pay Per Click) a link that directs to my website.
So naturally, the affiliates who join my program (such as Level Rewards) will advertise my site using their unique affiliate links. Every time someone clicks that link, I will pay the owner of that affiliate link $1 regardless if I make sales or not.
Usually, CPA programs pay affiliates for leads or signups, which is basically what most of the affiliate programs you can find on the Level Rewards site.
That's how the owners of Level Rewards makes money.
So, where do you come in? Well, buckle up because it's going to get real really quick.
Because while the CPA program is not illegal per se, it is unethically used in Level Rewards to deceive its members.
The Ugly Truth about Level Rewards
I have no other intention in writing this Level Rewards review except for exposing the truth about this program.
I also know that what follows are heavy accusations, so let me lay out some proofs, and you can decide whether or not I am making any sense.
And if do want to share your thoughts and opinions, feel free to use the comments section below. But please be polite.
1. Getting new "Levels" and convincing people to join the platform is the name of the game
Level Rewards affiliates are given levels. When you first join, you will start as a Level 0 affiliate.
First, you need to get to level 1 to qualify for commissions. You can level up by
earning credits while you complete deals - every 1.00 credit equals 1 level.
There are plenty of deals with different credit values that you can find in Level Rewards. These are likely the CPA programs that Level Rewards is affiliated with.
Some programs offer free deals, others require a subscription fee, and some will require you to complete a specific task, e.g., getting a loan.
Say you complete the "LendKey" deal (image above) that rewards 12.00 credits. That means you'll automatically gain 12 new levels.
In Level Rewards, you'll earn $5 per level completed by your referrals, as long as the new level achieved does not exceed your current level.
How Level Rewards system works:
Say you are new, and you just completed the LendKey deal for 12 credits.
It means that your sponsor (the person that referred you to Level Rewards) will earn 12 x $5 = $60, granted that he/she is a Level 12 affiliate or higher.
However, if your sponsor is only Level 1, he/she will only earn $5 from you, and that's it.
Basically, if you want to continue earning money with Level Rewards, you'll need to either (1) get new people to join Level Rewards or (2) get to a higher level by completing deals and encouraging your referrals to do the same.
I don't know about you, but to me, this setup is really clever in the sense that it forces you to do 2 things to earn money, (1) recruit others into the program, and (2) complete tasks to level up so that you'll have the "potential to earn more."
And remember, some of the tasks are not free.
2. Level Rewards uses its affiliates to make more money for its owners!!!
While it is true that you can make money for free, but if you look behind the curtain, you are actually helping the unknown owners to make more money.
Firstly, you are advertising the program for the owners for free...
And, the more people who gets into the program and perform tasks, the more money the owners of Level Rewards will make.
Level Rewards is basically using you and the rest of its affiliates to get more clicks, signups or complete any action that its CPA affiliated programs require.
For example, one of the programs promoted in Level Rewards is the LendKey.
While this deal gives you a potential income of $60 (12 levels, $5 each level), if your referral completes it, you will earn better commissions if you go directly to the LendKey website and apply to be an affiliate.
LendKey will pay you up to $200 for every person you refer to the program.
Basically, Level Rewards is an affiliate of LendKey, and you are sending referrals to LendKey using Level Rewards' affiliate link.
For every successful referral, LendKey pays Level Rewards $200, but Level Rewards only gives you $60 (12 credits) and pockets the $140.
I don't know about you, but maybe you are ok with how this thing is setup because you get paid either way?
Another example is Nutrisystem. (In square)
If you complete this deal in Level Rewards, it will reward you 5.50 credits, which translates to a potential income of 5.5 x $5 = $27.50.
However, did you know that Nutrisystem pays $160/referral to its affiliates per sale? (CPS = Cost-Per-Sale, another CPA program)
Instead of helping you make money, Level Rewards is using you to make money with its CPA programs using your time and efforts.
You can go ahead and do some research about the rest of the deals and offers in Level Rewards if you need more proof of what's really going on.
Tip: Just type "Name of the program" + "Affiliate Program". In the above cases, it would be "Lendkey Affiliate Program" and "Nutrisystem Affiliate Program".
3. A recruitment scheme in disguise
Your income in Level Rewards relies on your ability to convince other people to join this program and complete various deals.
You cannot make money completing tasks on your own, unlike other GPT sites.
I know many affiliates of the company will start trashing this review, and clearly, I cannot force everyone to accept my opinion.
But at the end of the day, one cannot deny that you will never earn money with Level Rewards without any referrals, and that itself is the definition of a recruitment scheme.
And for argument's sake, let's say you join Level Rewards today. You don't have any referrals yet and somehow, Level Rewards decided to cease accepting new members.
Do you think you can perhaps earn money by completing as many deals as you can?
My Two Cents - Should You Join Level Rewards?
Based on the things I've shared above, you probably can guess my verdict about this program.
I believe that Level Rewards is a scam, a recruitment scheme to be exact.
But, I also know that it doesn't really impact you as you can possibly earn money without spending any money.
However, I would advise that at any point you are required to pay money for a product or service just to "Level Up", don't do it.
It is not worth the money, unless you really need the products or services.
It is easy to get caught up with spending on all these deals and rewards, so be cautious when it comes to spending money on this platform. I know you'll do the right thing.
Does making a full-time income online interest you?
As you've seen the potential of you earning money directly as an affiliate of those CPA programs (instead of relying on Level Rewards). It is really possible to earn a full-time income just by promoting those CPA programs.
How would you like to learn how to become a successful affiliate who do not need to rely on any platform to earn money?
