The rise of the internet and e-business has allowed people to earn unprecedented amounts of money without ever having to leave the comfort of their own homes. A type of website that has really caught on in the last few years are those that allow you to earn money by completing offers and/or surveys. There are a multitude of websites available that allow you to earn money in this way, but there are a few that I have found extremely user-friendly with quick payments and many opportunities.
The first such website that I have found quite easy to use is InboxDollars. When you sign up for an account here, you automatically get $5 added to your account. There are several ways to earn money through InboxDollars. You can earn money via reading e-mails that are sent out daily (usually $0.01/e-mail until you become a Golden member, then $0.02/e-mail), completing cash offers (many do not require credit card), redeeming coupons for groceries and other necessities, completing surveys, and even playing games. You are also able to earn money through the people that you refer to InboxDollars. I have reached pay out of $30 with InboxDollars, which automatically upgrades your membership to Golden which offers benefits like weekly payouts available and a share of the individuals who sign up for InboxDollars without being referred. The only thing that I don’t like about InboxDollars is that they do not offer payout via paper check instead of PayPal. My favorite way to earn money here is by playing games.
CashCrate is similar to InboxDollars in that it offers you opportunities to earn money by completing offers, surveys, and playing games. The great thing about CashCrate that sets it apart from InboxDollars and other sites is the amount that you earn based on your referrals. With InboxDollars, you only earn 10% of the earnings from your referrals. As a basic member of CashCrate, you earn 20% of what your referrals earn and then another 10% of what their referrals earn. Once you have at least 50 referrals to CashCrate, you become a Silver level member and you will earn 25% of your referrals’ earnings and 10% of their referrals’ earnings. You can make a decent amount of money on your own through CashCrate, but in order to increase your earnings, you will need referrals. You can gain more referrals by posting links on your website, social networking site, forums, blogs, etc.
I have been a part of InboxDollars and CashCrate for awhile, but I am still fairly new to the world of the world of SwagBucks. There are some similarities between SwagBucks and other sites, but there are some things that make it stand apart quite a bit. One of my favorite ways to earn from SwagBucks is through using their search engine. Also, you can complete offers, participate in daily polls, surveys, shopping at many online retailers, etc. When you complete these offers or other opportunities, you receive SwagBucks. You can then go to the SwagStore and redeem these SwagBucks for various things such as electronics, books, movies, gift cards, or cash via PayPal. I have gotten enough SwagBucks to earn $10 (1400 SwagBucks) through PayPal and I have done nothing more than use the search engine and participated in the daily polls. In addition to redeeming SwagBucks for merchandise, you can also use them to participate in auctions for merchandise, gifts cards, more SwagBucks, and cash. You can increase your earnings by using SwagBucks as your main shopping portal. I like that there is the opportunity to earn in different types of payment (i.e. merchandise, gift cards, or cash); this is one of my favorite reasons for using SwagBucks.
These are just a few of the sites out there that offer you the opportunity to earn cash and prizes for completing offers and surveys, as well as shopping. You are not going to get rich off of these websites, but you can easily earn a little extra money off of them and, with enough referrals, you could do pretty well for yourself. These opportunities are just like anything else that you do to earn money: you get out of it what you put into it.
