CaliStyle101 Description

CaliStyle101 is a “freebie trading” membership site that provides training in working with freebie-offer sites as well as a base for practicing freebie trading. This type of online activity consists of completing promotional offers for companies in exchange for cash or prizes. It also consists of members promoting these offers to other people in order to gain referrals.

CaliStyle101 Detailed Overview

When you first hear about freebie trading, it can be a bit difficult to understand. Many people who engage in this practice online, however, claim that it can be very lucrative. CaliStyle101 was created to help people make money through freebie trading. The program provides training and mentorship for new people and a base from which to do business.

When you join CaliStyle101, you are encouraged to watch a series of tutorials that show you how the system works. You’ll learn about method 1, which is the “completing offers” part of the program. Many companies provide free offers to people as a way of advertising their services. Some of these offers are actually free; others require a shipping and handling fee. When you are doing method 1, higher level members will actually pay you to complete these offers. You usually have to complete a certain number of offers in order to qualify for payment. It’s extremely important to note that these are usually trial offers, and they require you to provide credit card information. If you don’t cancel within the trial period, you will be charged for whatever product or service is offered in the trial. Usually it’s an ongoing monthly charge for continued service or continued shipment of products.

What do the CaliStyle101 higher level members gain from paying you to complete offers? When you complete offers through a higher level member, you are doing so through their referral links. They receive cash or merchandise for getting a certain number of referrals. What they eventually earn is more than what they pay out to their referrals.

After you get used to the CaliStyle101 system, with help from the tutorials and a mentor, you can move up to being a sponsor for other method 1 people if you like. It’s up to you, but if you decide that’s what you want to do, you will get support from other program members as well as administration staff.

CaliStyle101 Reputation

So far CaliStyle101 has a good reputation in the freebie trading industry. Members report that the tutorials are very helpful and that support from staff and other program members is excellent. Freebie trading is certainly not for everyone, but for those who want to try their hand at it, this seems to be a solid membership program to join.

When I woke up I had $70 dollars!

This guide really helped me get my business started from my home. As proposed, in the first day I did make some money.

Calistyle provides you with videos and straight-up guides that are easy to follow. In the guide there are chapters with a few steps in each of them. The steps go into detail about what needs to be done so you aren't left hanging.

Following the steps to create my site and advertise it correctly, I was done with the guide in about 3-5 hours. That same night I made 40$. When I got up the next morning I had already made over 70$. It paid off my investment on the guide. I'm happy with it and want to share this guide with you guys. Good luck, it's really easy to follow the steps are very detailed.

A Nice Experience

Calistyle101 has been a great site to me. There is so much help to be had here, whether it is from their support or from the great forums they have. This site reminds me a lot of Cashcrate, but in a very good way. Basically they have a point system that you can use to redeem for cash/prizes. In order to get these points you have to sign up for offers (Like Cashcrate) and each offer has a different point value. Once you reach the second phase you can get referrals and do many different things. I would also recommend if you join this site to create a separate email because when you sign up for some of these offers your inbox might get a little filled. It’s nothing too bad though, just a couple of emails a day.

Make sure though if you are new, you head over to the forums and introduce yourself, there will be a lot of people there that are willing to help you. Good luck to all, it’s a great site and I recommend you check it out.

Awesome Freebie Forum!

I've been freebie trading for a few months now. I'm a member of most of the forums and I've got to say that CS101 is my favorite out of all of them. I found the others really confusing and it was difficult and time consuming to find information without searching and hunting for it. As soon as you join CS101 they provide you with step by step videos and tutorials with how to start the process of freebie trading. The Admin. team and the moderators answer questions completely and quickly. They also have a great Rotator System which is optional if you join one of their TRAINN (A specific IFW network) sites. They help you recruit referrals in order to qualify for the prize you've chosen. It takes a little time if you don't try to recruit referrals yourself but heck, I'll wait a few months (or less) for $200+ without doing anything but completing 1 offer! The rest is done by CS101 where they'll advertise your referral link in the Rotator System. The only requirement is that you log in to the forum a few times a week. I would definitely recommend this site to anyone starting out in Freebie Trading. It's awesome!

A Very Nice Site

I found this site to be a little confusing, but there are very helpful tutorials that help you get started step by step. It doesn't replace an entire income, but it is a great help. There were always lots of offers for me to choose from, so it wasn't hard to meet the requirements to get paid. This is a site that works for me and many others. I recommend this site to anyone that is trying to make a little extra money on the side, and it has room for advancement. I am only in phase 1(offers), but soon to be in phase 2(referrals).

Great Instructional Site!

Great instructional site for the price! It's free! Calistyle 101 is the place to start if you're looking for somewhere or something to help you out. I used this site lots of times when I had a particular question, and the answers can't be more helpful! The help and feedback is great! I rate this a 5 Star.

The admins and the people around are really nice and are guaranteed to help you when in need. Also it's a very easy method and you don't need to do lots of thinking. In less than a week you will see the profits rising! I recommend this site.

This is a pretty good site, if you are new: be patient

When I arrived at this website, I was confused to pieces what I was supposed to do. Leslie's tutorial videos are very helpful in getting started, and they basically give you an overview and a step by step approach on completing offers from a mentor.

If you are new to this site, I recommend reviewing a mentor's ranking, the one I have joined has had very high ratings, and has helped all those that have seeked her help. A good mentor will make your stay at Cali a pleasant one. I am currently in phase 1 where I do offers, and am looking forward to doing phase 2, where I work on referrals.

One tip for this site is that you should not cancel offers right after you sign up for them because the whole point is to try offers, and keep them if you like them. It also helps to keep some sort of running list of sites you sign up for just in case, and their number for contact. I have not made a lot of money with this site, but then again, this isn't exactly an income replacement site, and I suppose it takes a while to reach a high payout per month. For now, it's worked well for me as some side cash.

There's nothing wrong with a little effort

I personally tried Calistyle101 and it is absolutely true what viewers are saying. Though it can be difficult to catch on to at first, Calistyle is in fact a legitimate business to work for. This is a site where you will be signing up for free trial offers for points and the more points you get, depending on what your (mentor's) requirements, the more free prizes you will earn and money, of course. I always had plenty of offers to choose from, so I never ran out of ways to meet the offer requirements and get paid. I would most definitely recommend this site to others. It has been a great benefit for me and my family.

This Site Is A Must Try

I joined this site back in May and so far am really enjoying it. I like the way the tutorials are set up because they are completely understandable to follow. If you are a newbie to freebie marketing then this is a must. You have a very helpful forum and an admin that is willing to work with you. Whenever I have a question or need advice about something, I always go the the forum first. They have so much helpful advice and others there are willing to help. Everyone has been great up to this point and I'm still an active member. I would recommend this program for anyone willing to learn the trade.

Loved most of the information and guidance that was given

The reason why I love Calistyle101 is because it gave me a free way to learn how to make my blog successful. It helped me get a grasp on how to bring in cash with my blog alone. I was offered tutorials and videos that I was able to watch whenever I got the chance.

When I first started I had trouble signing up because the system was extremely slow, but once I got in and got my two emails I was well on my way to learning some new stuff. I got a chance to learn about the freebie industry and how much they actually pay people. It was a new experience for me because I knew nothing about the freebie industry.

Now there were things in the forum area that wasn't that legit, either the information had expired or the information wasn't real. Either way I ran into a lot of road blocks. But for the most part, I met a lot of people who taught me a lot of things pertaining to my blog.

Now that i've actually tried Calistyle 101

Calistyle 101 does seem like a legit web site, but the process of actually learning how the site works took me entirely too long. The mentors really did seem to want to help, but every time I found a mentor (trainer) to assist me, they would start to help and then just disappear. I think a few of them just got impatient. Anyway, I would recommend Calistyle 101 to a person of patience. I believe it would work for you if you don't need money right away.

Another thing that I didn't enjoy too much about the site is the fact that your PayPal account has to have an active checking or savings account in order for you to receive your money faster. I myself signed up with a PayPal account, but did not wish to display my savings account information.

Calistyle101

I am a member of Calistyle101 and have been doing freebie trading since November of 2007. Although Calistyle is not the only forum I am active on, it is one of the best. The management is absolutely excellent to work with and they go out of their way to help you if you have a question or problem and all the members are more than glad to answer your questions.

Not Good For Traders!

I came across this site on youtube while searching for ways to capitalize with IFW's. As with Free Lunch Room, Calistyle is a great forum if you're looking to be paid as a referral! The only other 2 situations I have with the forum is that, setting my profile was a little confusing and I always had to wait a couple of days for someone to get back to me about a question! The forum as a whole, in my opinion, was kind of all over the place and the dark background is not all that appealing either. Other than that, it was ok! There were many friendly members, as with any forum, some were pretty helpful, but as a trader, no good news.

Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of these type of forums unless you get in from the start as a trader! The seasoned traders always take over because they have the high ratings, and what they teach you in the tutorials, whether videos, or text, DON'T TRADE WITH SOMEONE WITH A LOW TRADER RATING! So, you can't even get started to be a trader if they're "not suppose to trade with you!" Bit of a downer if you're trying to make the real money!

Anyway, as a means of quick cash or extra cash, it's great; in fact any forum is great for freebie trades if you're going to be a paid referral! But to become a trader, do like I did and hit the social networking sites!

My thoughts

My sister told me about this website because she is a stay at home mom and has made decent income using this program. This membership is FREE and I enjoyed the introduction videos because for me it was easy to understand. The forum is very nice. If you have any questions, the administrators are happy to help (in a timely manner) and the other members are extremely helpful and nice as well.

In the forum there are plenty of information, tips, freebies, and different promotions. Thus far, since joining I have made about $30. I enjoy the trial offers, sampling products etc. My advice is do not forget to cancel the offers if you are not interesting in continuing receiving a certain service or product because for trial offers a credit card will be required and it will only be charged after the trial period is up. So you make sure you take detailed notes and keep track of what you sign up for. Otherwise, this is a nice website to make extra cash.

CaliStyle Web Design Could be More User Friendly

I signed up with CaliStyle101 after coming across a video testimonial from a woman who claimed to make really good profits with them. While I do not doubt this is true, it hasn't been true for me. I got to the site and really didn't know where to start. The interface is not very user friendly and I ran out of patience quick! I did view the video but still couldn't quite grasp the concept. I have yet to make money with CaliStyle101, but after reading the other reviews I just may give it another shot.

A great freebies site

I joined this site and I didn't know what to do but they had video tutorial that taught me everything that I needed to know. I also made a lot of money with this site. I make about $10 a week which is not bad. I love how this site is free and you don't have to pay for anything. Other sites you have to pay a lot for membership. This is a great and legit site. I recommend this site for people that love freebies.

Comment on Calistyle101

I am a member of Calistyle101. I have tried many online income opportunities and none of them worked. Instead of making money, I lost money! Until I found Calistyle101. I made money the first day I became a member. This forum gives you step by step instructions on how to become a freebie trader. Its tutorials are second to none! Not only have I made money, I also have made friends on this forum. I have learned so much about marketing from Calistyle101.

The owners of this forum are the best! One or the other is always online, and are there to answer any questions we have or are there to help. I have not found another forum that the administrators interact with their members.

Great Site for Those Who Love Freebies

I love CaliStyle 101. The video introduction was very helpful and did help me learn a lot about freebie trading. This was something I had never done before and I found it to be very easy to learn. I really enjoyed looking around at the forums and what promos were being offered.

I will say one of the mistakes I did make was forgetting about a trial service. I did not cancel it in time and was charged for it. I will not make that mistake again. But other than this I have had no trouble with CaliStyle 101. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to start trading or learn about freebies!

Love It!

CaliStyle101 is the best place to learn about where to go to get free stuff. When I joined, I was a little skeptical about whether or not they actually gave good information and how much of it. It turned out they gave out tons of helpful advice.

They have forums to learn about freebies from other people and to share when you have received something. There are also many video tutorials. All of this is great. I recommend that you join it!

Long time user - I highly recommend this!

I have been using CaliStyle101 for over a year and I think it's awesome. One of my favorite things to do online is to hunt around for freebies or ways to make money online, and this site is a haven for people like me.

All the people I've met on the site are really friendly and most of the time they go out of their way to provide the most useful information.

I have saved a lot of money and time by becoming a member of this site. The tips and links I've come across on there have been very helpful, and I have used many suggestions from there to get myself freebies, save money and even make money.

All in all it's a great little community, and well worth a look.

Interested in freebie trading? Start here!

Calistyle 101 is a great place to start if you're looking into freebie trading. They really introduce you into the program and really push you in the right direction. They even have video tutorials on their website for those (like me) who are new to the system. There are always admins hanging out around the forums to help you with any problems you may have. It's great to know you have a place to turn to if you don't understand something. Another great thing about this system is that you don't need to put a lot of effort into it to see results. It took me at most about 3 days to start profiting. If you put the time in it, it really works.
