eBates- Gotta love it

Sign up for E-Bates!

e-Bates is this awesome website where you receive rebates for shopping online. Literally, they have EVERYTHING except for Amazon on here. You get 5 bucks for signing up, and they send either check/PayPal quarterly. If you're a big-time online shopper, you can rack up some serious money. All you have to do to get it is go to the e-Bates website before you go to whatever online store (say, eBay), and click on the store, and eBates will give a tracking number, which it will use to monitor any purchases you make. It's as easy as two clicks!

Three Tips if You're Feeling Discouraged

When you try to make money through surveys and PTC sites, you're bound to hit a funk, pretty much like anything else in life. Here are a few things to remember when this happens to you.

1. Take a break.

Unless you're depending on this income (and I hope you aren't), just take a break for a few days or a week. Don't think about it, don't even look at the e-mails. After this time, you'll feel more invigorated and motivated to do something.

2. Search for new sites

If you find one that you like and that I don't have, let me know!

3. Explore other ways to make money online.

Maybe start a blog, or search for data entry jobs. There are plenty of ways to make a few bucks on the internet! Don't be afraid to take a chance (though of course, don't ever EVER pay to do any of this).

Best of luck!

The More I Use CashCrate, the more I like it.

Cashcrate is quickly flying up my list of favorite survey/offer sites. The depth of ways to make some money is astounding. For a lot of survey sites, it's common to have a couple of opportunities per day. But for CashCrate, I'm able to do so many different things on a daily basis.

Hell, you're even able to get credit for songs you buy on Itunes! I'm super excited about this site, so check it out!

Tips to Make More Money!

Sometimes, this whole biz is a pain. Nobody wants to feel like they're wasting away their day. But if you follow a few general rules of thumb, you can be as productive as possible when it comes to making money online.

1. For Survey Sites, fill out the profilers.

Most survey sites have general profile surveys (a few sites even pay for them) which they use to target you for future surveys. By filling all of these out, the website is able to cater surveys to you, that way you aren't wasting as much time with surveys that you don't qualify for. I don't know how many hours I've saved just by taking a few minutes to fill some of these out.

2. For PTC sites, visit them daily.

Pay-to-click sites often seem like a nuisance than anything else, but if you visit them daily, which usually takes a minute or two, you start to accrue a few bucks over the span of a month. Consistency is everything when it comes to this. Also, click on all of the paid e-mails. It only takes a second!

3. Often, the best place to access your survey sites is from your e-mail.

Rather than checking for surveys by actually going to the website, check your e-mail. They often send e-mails alerting you of the newest surveys. That being said, since the survey is new, you have a much better chance of qualifying for it before it fills up. If you are someone who looks at their e-mail often, this becomes a very easy thing to do.

Feel free to comment with success/failure stories too!

Mindfield Online Surveys

Mindfield Surveys sometimes slip through the cracks for me. They don't offer a ton of surveys, but they pay very well, probably better than most survey sites. I've only taken 8 surveys there at this point, but I've made $43 from them, which isn't too bad at all! I need to pay better attention to Mindfield in the future.

They have a low cashout amount ($5), and they pay by check pretty promptly. The only drawback is that sometimes the surveys take a while to credit. Actually, I've forgotten about surveys I've done here before, only to come back a couple weeks later to see that I had a few bucks in my account. But hey, I don't suppose there's anything wrong with that!

Sign up for Mindfield!

Surveyhead is another legit paid survey site. This one comes with a bit of baggage though. They have a $25 minimum payout, which can take a while, since it's more difficult to qualify for surveys on Surveyhead (seemingly). Also, once you cashout, it may take 4 weeks to get your money.

However, they offer more surveys than anybody else out there, so if you have the patience, you can be pretty successful. I've made over $150 on Surveyhead. Plus, you get paid (small amounts) to take their various profiles, and you also get $5 right out of the gate just to sign up.

Surveyhead can be a bit frustrating, but your patience will reward you!

Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost is another outstanding survey site. They offer a ton of surveys on a daily basis, and usually pay decently for them. I find that I seem to qualify for the most surveys through Opinion Outpost. It used to be that they had a $5 minimum cashout, but unfortunately that's been increased to $20, though you can spend your earnings in other ways. They send payments by check, and you usually have your check by the next week. I've made a couple hundred bucks throughout my time there through not a lot of effort!

There's a seemingly never-ending universe of survey sites on the Internet. Most promise bags and bags of money for not too much work. The truth, and it's ubiquitous throughout life, is that there is no easy money out there. But a lot of these sites will provide some pocket change if you have some spare time, and could even pay a bill every month. The key to making a bit of money off of these sites?

-Be patient. You won't qualify for every survey, but you will qualify for quite a few. Try not to get discouraged if you swing and miss every once in a while.

-Check your e-mail and the websites consistently. Some of the decent paying surveys fill up quickly.

On to some of my favorite sites!

1. Quick Rewards

Quick Rewards is an awesome site for a few reasons:

-Multiple ways to make money. You make a (very) small amount to click on their links and read their paid e-mails. You can make a bit more money by doing signups and surveys though.

-There is no minimum required payout. Unlike most sites, you can cash out if you have 5 cents or 50 bucks.

-They pay by PayPal, and they pay quickly. Once you cash out, you'll have the money in your PayPal account within 24 hours usually.

2. CashCrate

CashCrate is another great survey website. Like Quick Rewards, you can earn some money by doing a bevy of tasks, but as per usual, you'll make most of your money from doing surveys, and they offer many on a daily basis. The cash out threshold is $20, but it can be reached fairly fast.

3. SurveySavvy

SurveySavvy is one of the oldest survey sites on the internet. And there's a reason it's been around as long as it has: it works. They don't have as many surveys as most sites, but I find that more often than not, I qualify for the surveys. They have a low payout threshold of $5, and they usually pay promptly by check.

4. YouData

Quick notes on YouData:

A. This is the site where you will make the least money. Period.
B. This is also the site that pays you best for the least amount of work.

YouData doesn't do surveys, they only do pay-per-click ads. They don't do them often, but you can easily make 20 cents for clicking on one ad. They pay by PayPal every Friday, so that's also a very nice perk.

That's it for today, but check back soon and I'll have some more great sites to make a few bucks on. Best of luck!
