What do you do for a living?I have been thinking about a career change and wondered what you guys do for a living.I have been teaching/coaching for 5 years. I am getting burned out and want a change.What do you do and how long have you been doing it? Are you satisfied or are you getting restless like me?

Currently I am working as a carpenter in Malaisia. I get 10$ per hour. it's not enough so I was thinking to move to NZ. I have heard that building industry is booming there. So the carpenter with experience gets about $50. I have already found a good offer on Max Contracts http://www.maxcontracts.co.nz/ . Hope everything works.

Feedback / Suggestions
Why are you phasing out PayPal? There is not a very good selection of eGift cards for New Zealand members, in fact most seems to only be able to redeem in Australia :( Are you going to phase out New Zealand members too?
06 Jul 3:46 PM
I also would like to know why paypal is being phased out. I am close to having enough compbux to redeem but the the giftcards are 99% Australian , and I have reservations whether the ones I do recognize will be redeemable IN NZ! ???? for example: the JBHIFI card says it can be used in stores in AUSTRALIA... no mention of NZ , this needs to be answered before I waste any more time doing surveys.
06 Jul 4:38 PM
i got this answer from alex: hi. NZ can still use PayPal.. gift cards will be available for NZ next week
08 Jul 12:20 AM
Will be interested to see what it looks like next week

Hey everyone!Lately I've been thinking about this a lot, wondering if anyone actually enjoys what they do to make money. There's always the aspect that no job is perfect, and there will always be days you just shouldn't have gotten out of bed. The other day, someone said to me, "is it really a job if you aren't miserable the whole time?" I think that's just so sad.What do you all do for work? In general, do you guys like your jobs?
23 Apr 5:03 PM
Well I am in a search now. I left my previous job about 3 month ago (low salary) and now I cooperate with a recruiter from http://potentia.co.nz/ agency. I know that a recruiter can give me more opportunities to get a job what I want. So I hope it will bring good results.

Why are they stopping the guessing game? I like it a lot and suggest they keep it going, as it is fun to play :-) DOES NOBODY TALK ON HERE?
28 Apr 9:37 PM
fingers crossed you do :)

I agree..please bring 'Guessing Game' back, it is missed by many.

Tips & Tricks
Back pain for more than 3 days, what to do? I have tried some ointments, only temporary effects.Need help.
27 Feb 1:12 AM
Although rare, back pain can be a sign of a more serious condition. If you experience any of the following 'red flag' symptoms with your back pain then please see a doctor urgently:numbness in the groin or buttocksloss of bladder or bowel control redness or swelling on your back difficulty walking constant pain, especially at night
28 Feb 6:09 AM
There are three main types of back pain: chronic, acute, and neuropathic. You need to consult a doctor before carrying out any treatment. Given the right diagnosis you'll be able to effectively treat your back pain. I suggest to try acupuncture, this service http://edenphysio.co.nz/services/back-pain/ . Their physical therapy features the most effective exercise regimens that will immediately provide relief.

Leaving my house to buy clothes is way too much effort. Where do you buy most of your clothes from? What do you think about online shopping?
26 Jan 7:49 PM
I think buying clothes online works just fine as long as the store has specific measurements for all clothes. I buy plus size clothing here https://www.lacurve.co.nz/ in NZ. There is a large collection of fashion clothes for competitive prices. Their clothing suits me perfect.

I'm having to replace a tire today because I have a tire that's worn from the inside. The technician said it was likely due to the fact that I need an alignment, which is consistent with prior experience with this car.I'm officially over owning a car, it has now fallen into the "necessary evil" category.I have a 2004 Honda Accord with over 215,000 miles.
24 Jan 10:36 PM
Yes you need wheel alignment. I suggest these guys http://www.techdrivesuspension.co.nz/wheel-alignment/ . To get your car initially checked is just $40. From this report, you can see if the car does need any adjustments.

Has anyone redeemed bux lately? I just redeemed 10000 on Sunday the 14th and wondering how long it takes for payment to be made. In the past I thought it was quite quick, within a couple days of redeeming. Thanks

Hi there, I've got a long town-house back garden (~around 50 metres) but only around 8-9 metres in width. On one side of the garden, I have got around 22 fence panels which I don't like the appearance of (makes it too clinical!). The area where the panels are is laid to lawn, so I would appreciate any suggestions on what I could be growing along the fence to make more pleasant to look at. The fence is across the West/East, and facing south so the area under the fence on my side of the garden is shade most of the time. No ivy/crawlers please, other than that, I'm up to any suggestions that can be accommodated within less than a 1 metre footprint. Thanks in advance!
21 Dec 2:20 AM
I suggest to appeal to this company here in Auckland, http://www.balustrading.co.nz/ . They helped me with installation of fence around my house and there is a wide range of fence systems and gates. Hope you'll find something interesting for you.
26 Jan 7:46 PM
I hired local specialists here in Auckland that helped me to finish all work in a few days.

Why is it that I get a notification of an available survey, but when I click on the link within a minute of receiving the email, the page says there are no surveys available. How about only sending out emails when there are surveys available?
14 Nov 11:52 PM
Hi Guys!!Ok, so i've tried saving for travelling but can't do it (i get paid plenty of money but just dont have the will power to not touch the money i have sat in a saving account! - not good i know)I already cancelled a RTW i had booked for Nov 08 (because i wasn't gonna be able to save up enough to go) but now the plan is:Get a £4K loan and leave enough money to cover my repayments for 6-9 monthsBook my ticket (i already have about £1200 just sat in my savings account) keep trying to save untill November GO as originally planned.Now is this a really really bad decision??
21 Nov 1:31 AM
I think that you should go for it. You can take an online loan on http://www.loanplus.co.nz/our-loans/personal-loans/ . Low interest rates and good customer support. I took loan for 6 months there for my wedding and got money on the same day

Has anyone else had problems getting on the site or with the Guessing Game? My last weeks guesses haven't shown up..can anyone tell me what number week approx the guessing game is up to please? ..(mine says 252) Thanks in advance :)
22 Oct 6:18 PM
Thanks for the replies, much appreciated..And yes the prize has changed as I was lucky enough to win 5000 compbux :)(5200 compbux = $50) Hopefully more surveys will be sent as I haven't had a survey invite for years lol
23 Oct 1:16 PM
@jojo323 congrats.. yes I get less surveys these days and often get screened out. So it takes a long time to get enough points to redeem. Good luck withe earnign points to get to 5200.. would be nice if that was the prize.. just short is frustrating! But you could always go for the $30 ... better than nothing aye.

The Mindfood competitions are always for Australian entry only . These aren't the NZ ones that we are allowed to enter.
14 Dec 12:11 PM
Has anyone had any surveys lately and also has anyone earned enough points to redeem? I've been stuck on the same points for ages and don't think I will ever earn enough to redeem them lol.
05 Jan 3:28 PM
I think I have redeemed once and am close to redeeming again, well about 300 off lol. It does seem slow accumulating point with this one. It might be they have slowed down surveys over the holiday period too, I was getting them fairly regularly for awhile.

My Compbux amount never changes-how much can you earn?
16 Mar 6:44 AM
it took awhile but I get them for surveys completed, since I redeemed I have about 1000 at present
19 Mar 9:37 AM
@jojo323 it dpends on the survey I'm never really sure how much I earn each time, it just goes up slowly
06 Nov 9:38 PM
08 Sep 12:10 PM
Hi. Do you no longer do the surveys as I have not done any in months?Just wondering.Thanks,Polly.

17 May 5:00 PM
I'm not getting emails anymore. I log in every day, so I can play the guessing game, but my points aren't increasing. How am I ever supposed to earn enough to redeem, if there's no way to earn them?I went to 'My Account', to check if I"m still subscribed and maybe resubscribe, but the only option there is to unsubscribe.
23 Jan 3:12 PM
I am writing a book about comping and would love to hear any stories of successes (or failures) from NZ compers. I am based in Oz but can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!
18 Nov 7:32 PM
Hi I have note that when you have complete survey points not credited instantly. Even member account does not shown how many survey completed by member. So you have to show record of member that how many survey a member have been completed and out of which point has been already rewarded or pending. As there is too much gap between survey completion and points credited to account. So member may be forget how many survey he complete and for which he got points or not.ThanksHarwant
23 Nov 6:10 AM
I agreee with Hawants sentiments.. survey points seem to take ages to be credited so you're not sure if you've received the entitled points. There needs to be a record of completed and pending points that the member can see. Otherwise it does get discouraging and one wonders if its worth the effort at all!
26 Nov 12:16 PM
Hi.There has been an issue this month, points will be synced with the Survey Panels at the beginning of next month. Sorry for any inconvenience.
07 Oct 1:08 PM
Hi Everyone. You can now update your profile pic under My Account!
02 Oct 3:04 PM
When are there going to be surveys and what do you do with your comp bux?
07 Oct 1:00 PM
Surveys are invite only, you will receive an email when one is available for you. You can convert compBux to cash when you reach 3400 = $30
10 Oct 1:58 PM
Thanks for the info. Hopefully i get some more surveys,haven't had any in at least 3 months (if not longer). Lots of love for admin at comps nz :)

Hi there my name is Rewa Reeves and i run a food bank from my home to help people in need that are abit stuck sometimes.

20 Sep 3:01 PM
sorry no idea, never seen them before, as to surveys sometimes I can do, sometimes I can't as screened out, but who knows might get lucky with the guessing game again so a few seconds of my time it worth it :)

22 Sep 5:48 AM
ty :) fingers crossed
27 Aug 6:05 AM
who else is feeling like they are forever filling out the start of the survey forms only to be screened out. Next day another one pops up but it turns out to be the same survey grrr...Please survey people, can you not link a survey if we've already attempted it and were screened out! Its extremely frustrating and I almost don't want to come back.
08 Jul 2:33 PM
saw this and thought would spread the word if anyone interested. Its a buy anything from bedding department online and go into the draw to win a tallboy and bedside by John Young Furniture. http://www.harveynorman.co.nz/promos/kids-promotion.html
02 Jul 12:25 PM
there is not enough surveys to do I feel like im never going to get enough points to get cash.
15 Jul 6:16 PM
We'll be adding more real soon.. :)
02 Nov 12:26 PM
Every time I get asked to do a survey I get screened out. Haven't done a survey for you guys yet and have been signed up with you for ages. Why is that.
