I cashed my points in for the stickers prize sometime last year, but I still haven’t received the stickers. I haven’t used Kiwibox for a while, as I’m not sure they actually will give out the prizes! Have people been receiving their prizes from Kiwibox?

I’ve been a member of Kiwibox for a long time. I waited a long time to cash out and ordered a CD. This was several years ago. I never got it. I thought it may have been a one-time problem, so I ordered some stickers about 9 months ago. I had little hope of getting them, but they showed up in the mail about a month ago. I’m still bitter about the CD, though, lol.

well kiwibox isn’t that up-to-speed about giving rewards. it seems like they are only interested in making articles and letting the users make their own entertainment [i.e. qbooks, journals, and polls made by the users]. But when i ordered stickers with money, I got it way sooner than when i spent kiwipoints.

The focus of Kiwibox is not, unfortunately, on rewards. AsJeanelle stated, the focus is on letting the User create their own entertainment rather than rewards, but as far as free stuff goes, who’s complaining?

I am a member of the Kiwibox Staff. I can assure you that we DO give out prizes. We have had alot of problems with the computer system that Ivan (the computer coder) has been trying to fix. If you haven’t received your items please send a kiwinote directly to one of the SE or KiwiHelpers. It isn’t because we don’t send out the prizes. We may not have even got your otder to start with. Everyone on the site knows the main problem we have is with the Points System. Please take this up with Erica or a helper. When you post things like this on outside sites it only hurts kiwibox worse.

I oredered a beads bracelet and never got it. I attempted to contact the address they give for their customer service and never heard a reply.
I ordered a bandana before that and had problems with it to but eventually received it with an apology.

as a long time member of kiwibox and one of the top users, i can vouch for the prize fraud. it takes months to receive a prize — if you even recieve one at all!!
contacting their staff is equally difficult. they will claim to have “never recieved your request” or simply just ignore your messages.
don’t waste your time with this site. most of the prizes that are within attainable reach are junk anyway (jelly bracelets!?)

to the kiwibox staff member is all you do is make up the same phoney stories “oh computer problems” or some other fictional reason as to why you can’t give a prize.
you’ve gotten my order your just too lazy to find it.
“when you post things like this on a site outside kiwibox it only hurts kiwibox worse”
oh and like contanstly deleting users posts even when they aren’t offensive isn’t hurting anyone?
i don’t care if it “hurts kiwibox” with the way you treat users on your site you deserve to be hurt outside the site.

I love Kiwibox. I’ve always received the prize I ordered. Yes it’s slow, but that’s why I’ve never asked for something I could just go and buy myself at the store.
I don’t contact the e-mail they tell you to, I contact Susan, she’s their cheif helper. That’s her username on the site, and her e-mail is in her profile.
She’s always responded to me. *shrugs*
I’ve ordered 3 CD’s by KB, 1 bandana, 2 goodies and now I’m saving up for a nano.

Hi!
I’m a member of Kiwibox as well, and I have received what I’ve ordered! It did take some months to arrive here, so I sent them an email or a kiwinote, I can’t remember, and then it arrived!
I’ve never had any problems contacting them. It’s a good idea to send them kiwinotes, they’ll always respond.
I really like that site and what they offer their users, and that’s a lot more than prizes.

Kiwibox is phoney – you play games and don’t receive the points you earned – and when you email them to work it out – they don’t respond, over and over again. They make sure they receive all their advertising dollars tho. This site is a rip off and Mike and Susan are scam artists. Go home – get a real life and stop scamming innocent teenagers.

Hey guys,
Mike from Kiwibox.com here. In response to June 3rd comment, sorry to hear you didn’t get a response. Feel free to KiwiNote me (username Mike), or email Bianca (Bianca@Kiwibox.net) and you will here a reply to the status of your prize within 24 hours.
The only people we do not send prizes to are those that sign up fake accounts to get points. Not saying you fall into that category, however most users that are “upset about not getting their prize” fall into that category.
Many years ago we were slow at sending prizes, however ask anyone that has earned a prize in 2008 or 2009, and they will tell you it arrives no later than 3 weeks from the day they redeem their KiwiPoints.
Rock on guys,
Kiwibox Mike

Kiwibox is a scam June 29, 2009 at 6:47 pm

This site is HORRIBLE!! They not only never give you the points you “earn” playing their ridiculous games – trying to turn in the points you do manage to get in for “prizes” is an even bigger nightmare – and bringing the problem to the attention of anyone there results in no response – til you move up the ladder to big bad “Mike” and his little chicken nugget “Susan” which only mean you’ll eventually get a messages saying “We are aware of the problem, and working on a solution…..” They’ve been “working” on the problem for over a month and haven’t been able to figure anything out – but they are still racking in the big advertising bucks. This site is a sham and a scam – run away – run far away.

I assure you guys–Kiwibox.com’s NOT a scam. If you put in the prize requests/won something legitimately, then you should’ve gotten them. But if you didn’t get them, then something probably screwed up their system–it’s not their fault. Don’t make it like they’re the bad guys who are trying to trick everyone b/c they’re not. The times I have interacted with them, they’ve been nothing but nice. And everytime I’ve won something/requested a prize, I got them. I had won a bracelet and I got it. Earlier this week, I requested movie passes and I got them a few days later.
Just trying to clear their name…

You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I believe I’d by no means understand.
It sort of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me.

I’m taking a look ahead in your subsequent publish, I will try
to get the dangle of it!
