If it is not working for you, you'll have to wait until it is.

How much you have Poll .... tasman1 » Post #18

The problem as I see it in regards to medical, is everyone wants to put the blame
some where else.

I worked in healthcare for many years and I know what they do. When I worked
in a hospital, I saw the prices they charged for many items.

Now mind you, that has been years ago. At that time, they charge something like
$10 for a tiny tube of toothpaste....good for about two or three brushings. They
charged approximately $25 for a plastic water pitcher that included a cup and
basin (worth about a buck in those days). In those days they had something
known as 'chux'. They probably still use them in nursing homes. Today they are
high quality, much different and heaven forbid if you looked at the price. But
even back then, they were awfully expensive. We would rush around with stickers
all over us. Every time we gave anything to a patient, incoming or additional,
we'd stick the sticker to our uniform. Then when we got to nursing station we'd
flip through the patience chart for their the stickies. They were
coded labels. When the patient was released, their records go to the records
department and all the stickies go to billing. Needless to say, how often do you
think busy nursing department as well as other departments in the hospital,
remembered who's sticky was who's? I might have twenty or more stickies on
me....I would have to imput some info in their charts and then.....wait......was
this sticky Miss Smith or Miss Jones? Well, it's gotta go some where!

Today, they have a much better way of doing that but my guess is, many smaller
hospitals, smaller nursing homes, in smaller towns/cities, probably have old ways
of doing stuff.

So that is just one point of the billing crisis in the USA. Over charged for
various services and items plus possible over charging for services/products
NEVER rendered.

I use Walmart pharmacy for my prescriptions. It's mostly covered by my insurance.
Some of my prescriptions are out of Canada. Walmart gets cheaper pricing from
Canada mostly on generic drugs. A drug for high blood pressure might be $100
for 30 and that same drug through Canada and Walmart will be $4. HUGE
difference and goes to show how much the Pharm industry is ripping people off.

In regards to nursing homes/long term care, you have good insurance than fine.
If you don't have good insurance, and you have anything at all, they take every
thing you got...your house, your land, etc. And if you are totally broke and have
nothing, you may still end up in the nursing home on State aid. If you are on
State aid, you most likely won't get as good a care as the rooms on the other
hall that have insurance or self pay.

Yes, $347 for my office visits. I am in a small rural town that takes me two
minutes to drive to my primary doctor. So, I am not sure if office visits would
generally be higher or lower in a regular/large city. My primary doctor is the
only doctor in this town. My last visit just recently, he looked at me and said
your blood pressure is up, I am doubling your lisinopril from 10 to 20. I said
ok. He said any problems? I said I am having some joint pain and he said
I'll prescribe you the best there is for arthritis but they cause ulcers so don't
take them every day. I said ok. He said bye, have a good day, I said you to.
$337.00. HAHA :lol:

Well I don't know in regards to not being able to pay the hospital bill. Some
hospitals in the USA are owned by ..... not sure how to say it..... Protestant
religions. For example I was born in a large catholic hospital outside of
Chicago. Where I presently live with have 'Baptist' hospitals. Some hospitals
are named after Saints. There are of course hospitals that are simply named
of the city or county. Some hospitals, have an indigent fund pool (for lack
of a better name). They may cover some or all of the medical procedures
and/or hospital bills. Mostly people simply go into debt owing that money
that is placed with credit bureau reporting. I'd say you'd be better off not
having anything because if you do have something, they'll take it to help
cover what you owe.

We had good insurance and my husband was retired, older than I. So he had
insurance and medicare. He had to check into the hospital that month for
about 3 days to go through many test before the actual heart surgery. A
couple of weeks later, he went in for the surgery. The surgery lasted about
6 hours. He was then in the intensive care heart surgery recovery area
for 12 days until he passed away.

Yep, I've read some reviews of people that did not like it at all.

I won't go so far as to say I loved it but I thought it was really really good.

Not sure why these sites exists, but you could of watched the Joker free at

I suppose the best way to watch free movies to use a VPN

Many are illegal and many are scammy, have viruses etc.

The biggest issue is in regards to one's own isp, cable, etc. They can ban you from their
services forever.

Not to mention fines and jail time.

Pls do you all have access to your survey profile because I know I used it but since the changes made I can see my survey profile.
Pls I need to know CU's I have tried lots of surveys since august and not even 1 was successful. I is strange CU's I have made more money from surveys then suddenly for 5 months= 0 surveys successful

ySense does not list a survey profile like ClixSense did.

For the most part, as you do surveys, they keep a profile about you.

Some routers such as 'PeanutLabs' you may see an option to complete a profile.

However, most of these routers will ask profile questions and they keep a record of it.

I'll be unlocking the topic. I had to lock it as I posted the tips or some might have
posted before I could complete my tips.

I tried to make it very clear what I do and that it is MY tips based on the way I do the surveys.
That does not mean everyone will do the same as I do. It does not mean that someone else
does not have a good strategy for their self. It simply means that I have shared my strategy
with everyone as to how I do them. It's ok if you do something different if that is what works
for you, thats great.

The main reasons why I created that topic is due to members new to surveys. Most members
never post at the forums. Some people are shy to ask questions. Hopefully it will help some
members. People work hard to gain referrals and some times refs simply leave because they
don't know where to start or how.

I ignore Sample Cube too. :lol:

I always wanted to be a 'bananare'. I never could make the 'grade'.

I've known some bananare's in my life, many were down right 'rotten'.

Most bananare's in the USA live in Hawaii. However, it is said most
bananare's live in Columbia. Some people even say that bananare's
originated in Asia.

Well, no matter how 'yellow' you are, you cannot be a 'bananare'
unless you are 'Dolelicious'.

I buy the D salads all the time. They're really good, if you like salads.
I like the Taylor salads too, they're sold at Walmarts.

Well it seems like everything around here these days have some kind of
recall. If it's not pet food, it's lettuce and if it's not lettuce it's BANANAS
or something else.

I don't get paid cash for product sampling but if counting the value of
the products, it's rather high.

Yep, starts with D.

I'm not much a fan of uncola products unless it is 7-up or GingerAle.
The exception might be a Long Island Tea or mixed drink of some sort.

Yep, it was a six pack of plastic bottles with a foggy light yellow
substance and I am pretty sure it was thru PineCone.

I don't get too many food products to test or review but I do get
them from time to time. Mostly I get them thru product samplings
for review.

Doing reviews on products is really time consuming. I do pass up
many products to sample simply because it is not worth my time.

Yesterday, I received an oven. I chose to do it because it is a very
worthy item that I will actually use. It's time consuming because
it has lots of features, presets, air, dehydrate, bake, broil, etc etc.
I have to cook foods in it, learn some of the presets, and in a
nutshell, there is a LOT to submitting a review for it. But that
is worth it.

If I get something like a bottle of 30 fish oil capsules, I turn it
down. I am not going to spend my time evaluating and reviewing
fish oil capsules.

Am a little curious.

Did you get some good referrals on your latest promotion !?

Workhorses like tasman1 … :thumbup: :$

I had to disappoint you, mate :(

I got 62 affiliates all together, and since they signed in never showed up again :lol:

Did not got any tasmanians, unfortunately. There is only one and unique tasman1 and he is not multiplies it.

Not anymore, anyway. I think :P :D

Okay , sad that you just got hold of all the lazy people.

( so you get only zegon1, zegon2 people then and so on )

So damn bad luck then …

Have always wondered why in principle everyone becomes inactive immediately , it may be that they do not really understand what the website has to offer them , sometimes i feel like it may be due to such a thing.

Just lazy people who sign up.

It is a pity that it was just pancake of everything then , just as good to just throw the money in the lake directly , because the lake sucks too.

1. They don't know English well and do not know what to do

2. They don't understand how to do surveys or tasks or offers

3. They attempt one or two surveys and get booted, do not earn

IF you have just ten very active members completing some surveys every day and/or tasks, you can make
a very good some of money. At 20%, just say you earn $20 a month from each. That is of course, an extra
$200 a month for you.

The problem is that most people want to dish out money to get referrals at traffic exchanges,
safe lists, ad sites, etc and direct them to their ySense page. What most are going to end up
with is a hole in their pocket with non-active referrals.

It's simply not the best way to go about obtaining active referrals.
