I'm in too. Registered the Visa & AMEX used to buy Vanilla Reloads. it backloaded transactions so I've already reached the $75/quarter max payout. Payout is once a quarter with the first being March 5, 2013 for me.
Deleted my AMEX & will try to register a 2nd account....
The web site is not ready for prime time. I created an account, but I can't log back in. When I try to reset my password, I get an error message. When I try to contact them via their website, I get an error. Oh, and when I tried to register a Barclays credit card, that didn't work either.

gmail email address for business registration.
I think this answers your "is this a scam" question.
I differentiate an outright scam from a well-intentioned business model that is likely not viable. However, I realize i'm splitting hairs here. And I'm not well endowed with hairs to split...
And as far as the email address, what's the issue there? It appears to be the dude's real name. Plus, if you are creating a new domain how can you use a contact email from that domain when the domain hasn't yet been created? And even after it is created, if there is an issue with the domain you want the administration of the domain to be done elsewhere.
I can see the Ponzi part of this. But it seems like they are trying something a bit different out. The $75 cap may may be sufficient to monetize the data while keeping the gamers (us) at bay. The once-a-quarter thing is definitely dodgey.

We are aware of this bug and are actively working to resolve the issue with our partner, Yodlee. While we work on getting you a better answer, I just want to make sure I understand your problem correctly. For both Chase and BoA, there are both debit and credit card options, so you'll need to add debit and credit cards separately (even if you access them through the same website). In the meantime, I would recommend adding the cards on which you do the majority of your spending. Thanks for your patience while we work to resolve this issue!

Hi FWFuser- We're working to resolve this issue with our partner, Yodlee. We're currently working on testing a new PDF upload feature, allowing users to upload their PDF statements manually without using bank login credentials. Would you be interested in helping us test this feature using the Chase and BoA cards you weren't able to register? Thanks!Annalee

$75 is not worth the hassle of giving all my information to the Chinese. They would probably lock all of my accounts, forcing me to have to make 10 phone calls to get all of my accounts unlocked. What's your time worth to you?
I got the boot, even though I've not gotten any money and just joined.
I think some of you are missing the point ("I wouldn't be too upset about it"): these people (GBG) now have access to your financial accounts. Theoretically it's read-only, but should you really trust a group that operates like this? They can and will keep taking your info; and just not pay for it.
Yes, I can change all my passwords, but should I have to do that simply because these people are jerks?
To anyone who's reading this and thinking about joining--don't. Ditto to everything BenH said above.
