CashCrate - A Scam?

Update: Since writing this I have now made over $400 with CashCrate! Come and see proof of my cashcrate earnings at my new blog here: CashCrate proof of payment.

I have been a member of CashCrate for a while now, but I have had little success with them because they have far fewer offers for non-USA/Canada residents. I had actually half given up on them, but they recently made these interesting updates:

The more referrals you get, the higher % they payout.

Bronze - 0 Active Referrals - 20% First Level, 10% Second Level
Silver - 50 Active Referrals - 25% First Level, 10% Second Level
Gold - 150 Active Referrals - 25% First Level, 15% Second Level
Platinum - 300 Active Referrals - 30% First Level, 15% Second Level
Elite - 500 Active Referrals - 30% First Level, 20% Second Level

These are locked-in levels, once you reach them there's no way back

Point System
For each $1 you earn in completed offers, you will earn a point. You
also get points for doing "Point Offers". These are then exchangeable for
awesome prizes at the prize shop!

Offer "Rating" System
The way offers are rated has changed from 1-5. The offers are now rated
using a complicated mathematical formula which will bring the greatest
approving offers to the top. This will also help weed out poorly
approving offers.

As well, you can now sort by "Free Offers" and "Trial Offers". Free
Offers are those that do not require a credit card whereas Trial Offers
are the higher paying ones that do.

Daily Surveys
For a few minutes each day you can complete a $0.80 Daily Survey. These
will not confirm instantly as they approve all offers once per day for
the ones done before that.

Along with those they have added a few other smaller features, such as
making it easier to submit and remove offers and overall improving the
CashCrate experience.

As well as that, this contest was announced by the CashCrate Admins a couple of days ago:

- Win a 30GB iPod Video! The user who gains the most active referrals
(users who complete atleast one offer) during the month of March will be
awarded with a shiny, brand new 30GB iPod Video. This can hold up to
7,500 songs!

- The user who refers the second most active users will win $50, third
will win $25 and the next 10 users will each win $10.

- As well, whoever completes the most $ worth of offers will receive a
$50 bonus!

It looks like CashCrate is finally getting it's act together. They have a shiny new layout which makes them look much more trustworthy than before. So if you have been thinking about joining, now is the time to join CashCrate, and get referring to win that ipod!
