Before I get into it, and for the lazier readier, my one, and most important recommendation is - don't do it. Everything else that is about to follow, are my experiences with them based on 7 gigs I tried myself.
In general, being a person able to think, you should think twice, or never think at all, before ordering a social traffic gig for $2 - $10. And I doubt even the more expensive versions are any better on those two sites. But, considering their popularity, I decided to give it try anyway.
