Terms & Conditions
Last Modified: 03/19/2024
DropShop (“DropShop,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) operates this website (“Website”), as well as other websites (collectively, “Websites”), where you can earn products or gift cards that are featured on the Website Featured Product selection page (each a “Featured Product”) by, as detailed below, registering and providing personally identifiable information including your shipping address, completing the number of “Tasks” (unless otherwise specified, you will earn one “Task Credit” for each Task completed) specified for the Featured Product you choose and provided by our advertiser clients (“Advertisers”) and which may involve signing up for a recurring service, downloading an app or purchasing goods or services, some of which require paid participation and completing the Redemption Process (collectively, the “Program”).
By accessing and using the Website, you agree to and accept these Terms & Conditions, as well as our Privacy Policy and any additional terms, conditions, and policies published on the Website (collectively, the “Agreement”). If you do not agree to and accept the terms of the Agreement in their entirety, you do not have permission to visit and/or use the Website.
Mandatory Arbitration. These Terms & Conditions contain a mandatory arbitration provision, as detailed below, that requires you to arbitrate, individually, all disputes or claims that you may have with us, our parent, related parties, Advertisers, and our service providers all of whom are third-party beneficiaries of the mandatory arbitration provision. Thus, for example, if you provide prior express written consent to receive SMS/text messages or emails from us, any claims that you may have regarding any SMS/text messages or emails that you receive from us or our service providers are subject to the mandatory arbitration provision. The mandatory arbitration provision also waives your right to participate in a class action or multi-party arbitration. There are two narrow exceptions to the mandatory arbitration provision: (1) you may opt-out by providing written notice of your decision to do so within thirty (30) days of the date that you first register on a Website; and (2) you may opt-out by filing a claim in Small Claims Court provided the requirements described below are met.
How the Program Works. To qualify for a Featured Product , you must: (1) be a U.S. resident, 16 years of age or older; (2) provide accurate shipping and registration information (including your name and contact information, i.e., valid postal address, phone number and/or email address), (3) create a Login and password to create your account (“Account”) and (4) complete the number of Tasks specified for the Featured Product of your choice from among those offered on the Featured Product selection page.
MANY TASKS REQUIRE PAID PARTICIPATION OR PAID SUBSCRIPTION. SOME TASKS MAY HAVE NO INITIAL COST OR A NOMINAL INITIAL COST THAT WILL INCREASE AFTER THE EXPIRATION OF A TRIAL PERIOD AND CONTINUE UNTIL YOU CANCEL.
You must complete the required Tasks within a 45-day period that commences on the date that you complete your first Task. The requirements to earn a Task Credit are included in the text box that appears when you click on Task. Once you have completed the required number of Tasks and have the number of Task Credits to qualify for the Featured Redemption Process, to claim and obtain the Featured Product you’ve selected.
Registration and Verification. You must provide accurate shipping and registration information, including your name and contact information, i.e., valid residential and email addresses.
Complete Tasks. The various Tasks are only available after you have completed the registration process.
To be credited with completion of a Task, you must:
If you do not complete all the required Tasks during your initial visit to the Website, return to the Website and login to your Account and you pick where you left off. If you are unable to login into your Account or resume signing up for Tasks, please contact customer support for assistance. You should retain any confirmation emails or other documentation received applicable to the completed Tasks so that, if requested, you can document completion of the required Tasks.
For a Task that requires a subscription or purchase, the Advertiser must be able to successfully bill your credit card at least once or for the number of times specified in the Task’s terms to receive Task Credit. Many Advertisers will not accept prepaid cards to complete Tasks or give credit for a “quick cancel” (i.e., a cancellation prior to the Advertiser’s stated trial period). For Tasks that involve apps, in most cases it must be the first time you’ve installed the app on your device, and you may need to reach a certain level to get a Task Credit as specified in the Task terms.
Task Credits. You can check on your progress at any time by logging in to your Account and checking your Task Credits.
Proof of Task Completion. You must retain:
Courtesy Task Credit. If a technical issue occurred through no fault of your own that prevented a Task Credit from automatically crediting to Account, we may grant a courtesy Task Credit with acceptable proof. To contact our customer support team, please email us at Support@TryDropShop.com.
If we determine misuse or abuse of our courtesy Task Credit policy has occurred, we may revoke your right to request future courtesy Task Credits or forfeit eligibility for a Featured Product, and/or permanent suspension of your account.
Redemption Process.
Login to your Account, go the Featured Product page and see which Featured Product(s) you have enough Task Credits to redeem – they’ll be the ones with the green checkmark(s). Once you have selected the Featured Product and you’re ready to start the Redemption Process, click on the Featured Product (provided it has a green checkmark) and redeem the Featured Product. If you don’t use all your Task Credits, you can use them at a later date.
We confirm the status of your redemption. So, if we have any questions concerning your redemption, we will need you to promptly respond and address those issues or your redemption will remain incomplete. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at Support@TryDropShop.com.
Once you have successfully completed the Redemption Process, and assuming you’ve elected to receive a Featured Product, we will send you a tracking number so that you can track the status of your shipment of the Featured Product. Featured Products are shipped by a third-party service provider and are typically delivered within 15 business days of when you receive your tracking number.
We reserve the right to audit claims to ensure that only users who fully comply with these Terms & Conditions can claim a Featured Product.
Substitution Policy. We reserve the right to substitute a Featured Product with an electronic gift card of equal or greater value if the Featured Product is unavailable for any reason.
Lost, Stolen or Mis-Delivered Featured Products or E-Gift Cards. We rely on our users providing accurate shipping and registration information. If your Account information (name, postal address, email address) is inaccurate, your delivery may be delayed or you may not receive a Featured Product. We are not responsible for and will not replace any lost, stolen or mis-delivered Featured Product or electronic gift card unless the mis-delivery is clearly because of our error.
Risk of Loss. Upon shipment of a Featured Product with a valid tracking number, title to and risk of loss of each such Featured Product will pass to you.
Limitations - Employees. Employees of Net Creations, LLC and its parent, subsidiaries and related parties and its Advertisers, publisher, fulfillment, agency, and service providers, and their immediate families (including those living in the same households) are not eligible to earn a Feature Product.

Telemarketing and Text Messages. Where you provide “prior express written consent” within the meaning of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), you consent to receive text/SMS messages from us to the telephone number(s) that you provided. You are not required to provide this consent to earn Task Credits or receive a Featured Product. If you provide consent, we may send you SMS/text messages from short codes or long codes. Message Frequency Varies, maximum 15 messages per month. Message and data rates may apply. Text STOP to opt-out from future messages and HELP for help and/or contact us at Support@TryDropShop.com.
Further, where you submit your personal information to us, such act constitutes an inquiry for purposes of the Telemarketing Sales Rule (“TSR”) (16 CFR §310 et seq.), and applicable state do-not-call regulations. As such, even where your telephone number is listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, and/or on applicable state do-not-call lists, we retain the right to contact you via text/SMS messaging in accordance with the TSR and applicable state do-not-call regulations.
Any claims you may have under the TCPA and TSR against us or our service providers will be subject to the Arbitration/Dispute Resolution provision below.
Privacy, Security and Links. See our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference, for more information concerning our collection and use of your information, the security of your information, and how to have your information deleted from our database. The Website contains links to other sites or services. For example, when you link from a survey question, optional offer, or Task advertisement to another site, you are leaving the Website and are subject to the privacy policies and terms and conditions of those sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, content, or security of such third-party sites.
Publicity. We may use your first name, last initial, and City and State of residence (for example John S. Wichita, KS) on a Website. We may also ask for a testimonial and/or a picture of you with your Featured Product. If you submit either, you grant us a royalty-free license to display and use what you submit to us in any medium.
Tax Liability. You are responsible for all local, state, and federal taxes on any Featured Product you receive.
Agreement; Choice of Law/Jurisdiction and Venue. You agree that these Terms & Conditions constitute the agreement between you and us, and that New York law controls, without regard to conflicts of law provisions. Any dispute that is not resolved by arbitration and proceeds in a state or federal court will be adjudicated in a court in the state of New York. You expressly waive any defense or objection to venue or personal jurisdiction.
Arbitration/Dispute Resolution. You agree to arbitrate all claims arising out of or related to the Agreement. If you have a dispute concerning any aspect of the Agreement, including without limitation, your participation in the Program or a telemarketing call or SMS/text message that you received from us or an Advertiser, you should first contact customer support at Support@TryDropShop.com. We will attempt to resolve the matter to your satisfaction within thirty (30) days. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer during this process. If we provide you with a final written settlement offer and you don't accept it, if we can't otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, or if you choose to skip this step, you must submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in the county where you live by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration online by following the instructions at https://apps.adr.org/webfile/.
An AAA arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute or claims that you may have with us—and our Marketing Partners who are third-party beneficiaries of the mandatory arbitration provision—arising out of or related to the Agreement. Matters subject to mandatory arbitration include, without limitation, whether this Arbitration/Dispute Resolution provision applies to your claim or dispute, and any claim that all or any part of the Agreement, including this provision, are/is unenforceable. If the claim is against us, you will need our mailing address to file online. To obtain our mailing address, please contact us at Support@TryDropShop.com.
Either party may submit the dispute for resolution by arbitration at a location reasonably convenient to both parties. If either party files for arbitration, it will be conducted in accordance with the then current AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules.
If you proceed to arbitration against us, you will pay all AAA filing fees and we will pay for all administration and arbitrator fees unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). For claims brought by you of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone, or based only on submissions. The arbitrator may award any form of individual or equitable relief, including injunctive relief. Any award will be final and conclusive to the parties and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you initiate arbitration against us and the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our final written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then we will pay you a minimum recovery of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), plus we will reimburse any reasonable expenses incurred by your attorney, if any, including fees reasonably accrued for investigating, preparing, and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Although under some laws we may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we agree that we will not seek such an award from you. You and your attorneys are not required to keep the results of the arbitration confidential. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in such a suit.
Class Action Waiver. The arbitration provision contained in these Terms & Conditions does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights and remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining, or participating in class action lawsuits is an independent agreement.
Exceptions to Mandatory Arbitration. There are two narrow exceptions to mandatory arbitration. First, you may opt-out of the Arbitration/Dispute Resolution provision by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first register on any of the Websites. To obtain our mailing address, please contact us at Support@TryDropShop.com.
Second, you may choose to pursue your dispute or claim in Small Claims Court rather than by arbitration, but only if your dispute or claim qualifies for Small Claims Court in a location where jurisdiction and venue over both you and NetCreations, LLC is proper.
Other than these two exceptions, you must arbitrate any claims as provided above.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, VIA YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, AS WELL AS YOUR RIGHT TO BRING, JOIN, OR PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION SUIT OR MULTI-PARTY ARBITRATION BROUGHT AGAINST US, OUR ADVERTISERS, OR ANY SERVICE PROVIDER USED BY US TO PROVIDE THE SUBJECT SERVICE.
Policy Against Spam. We require that all emails promoting the Websites are sent only to users who have agreed to receive such emails. We prohibit any advertising of the Websites using unsolicited “spam” emails. If an advertiser or other person advertising or promoting our Sites fails to comply with our “no spam” policy, we will take appropriate disciplinary action against such person up to and including terminating our agreement with such person. If you feel you’ve been sent unsolicited spam emails promoting a Website and would like to register a complaint, please contact us at Support@TryDropShop.com. We will immediately investigate all allegations of spam email and take appropriate action.
