Earn Money Online

11 comments

There are many ways to earn money online – surveys, reading e-mails, surfing the internet, shopping, and so on and so forth. But, often you sign up and never “see the money”. Below are my favorite sites to make money online.  I’ve personally tried each of them out and received a payment from each one listed.

DealsNCash

DealsNCash and Hits4Pay are two of my favorite money making sites. I get about 1 e-mail a day and all I have to do is click on the link to make a little money. On top of that, I make a bit extra for every friend I refer who clicks on a link from their e-mail. The sites have to stay up for so long, so I often put them in the background while I read my e-mails or surf the net.

Methods to Earn: Reading e-mails
Reward:
Cash
Payment Schedule: 15th after each month you meet the minimum
Minimum Balance for Payment: $30.00
Payment Method: PayPal
Sign-Up Bonus: $5

InBoxDollars

InBoxDollars sends e-mails about once a week to my inbox and all I have to do is click on the link to earn a little money. Plus, you get paid for every friend you refer.

Reward:
Cash
Payment Schedule: By request, 1 calendar month required to finalize
Minimum Balance for Payment: $30.00

MyPoints

MyPoints is another one of my favorite sites. They send you e-mails periodically, which you simply click to earn points. Points can be redeemed for gift cards. I use this program to save money on Christmas. I click e-mails throughout the year, then near the end of November I redeem them for gift cards which I either give as gifts or use to purchase gifts. You can also get gift cards for places you shop every day like Starbucks, BP, Target, and many more.

Methods to Earn: Shopping Online, Grocery Coupon Redemption, Survey’s, Free Trials, Registering w/ Websites, Reviews, and More
Reward: Points
Payment Schedule: By Request
Minimum Balance for Payment: Varies
Payment Method: Gift Card

Swag Bucks

If you search the Internet a lot, like me, then Swag Bucks is for you. You can add Swag Bucks to your Internet Explorer or FoxFire and use it to search. You get points for searching, which you can trade for gift cards, electronics, or just about anything you’d like. The average searcher earns 1 $5 gift card a month. It’s not a lot, but it is free gift cards!

Methods to Earn: Searching the Internet, Surveys, Registering w/ Websites, Free Trials, Trade-In Merchandise, Polls, Commenting, Shopping Online
Reward:
Swag Bucks (points)
Payment Schedule: By Request
Minimum Balance for Payment: Varies
Payment Method: Gift Card, Merchandise, or Contest Entries

I have used the MyPoints site for several years, it takes a long time to acculumate the points if you do not buy on the internet, but I had enough points this year to get a $50 card from KMart which I used on Black Friday we were able to get about 75.00 worth of toys. So for a non-working grandma that was a good deal.

I’ve been using mypoints for years…I don’t do much shopping online, but at the end of the year I turn all my points in and get nearly 200.00 in gift cards. I could earn more if I shopped online, but this is fine the way it is….A little bit of gift cards goes a long way just for doing nothing… Can’t beat that!

I really like Inbox Dollars. I joined just over a month ago and already have $23 in my account! Mypoints is great too, I’ve been a member of it for several years.
However, I’m disappointed with DealsNCash. When you sign up, it says you get 2-5 cents for each e-mail you read and 1-2 cents for each email your referrals read. So far, I’ve read over 125 and my referral around 60. According to my account, I’m only getting credited 1 cent per email. It will sure take a lot longer to hit the $30 payout mark at this rate! I sent an email to customer service over a week ago to question this, but no response.

Hits for pay says accounts are zeroed out at the 1stof the month and payments r made on the 15th. Are they saying if you request payment they’ll clear your acct? Or that you have to get to 25 in 1 month or lose your money?

Kati, first I’m glad you love the articles. And second, if you hit $25 by the $15, they send you a check. If you don’t the money rolls into the next month.

Thanks. Sorry to bother you but I’ve got 1 more question. Both hits4pay and deals say they pay thru paypal. You say check. Do I have to set up a paypal acct to get paid?
Thanks for your time!

Kati, actually, thank you for pointing that out. They use to pay by check, but it looks like they’ve changed 100% to PayPal, so you would have to have a PayPal account. It’s free and you can put the money into your checking account after you get it easily.

Thanks for all of the useful tips and your site is awesome!!! I just recently joined hits4pays and its quick and simple! I am a stay @ home mom as well and would love to learn more about ways to make money online and from home!! Any suggestions would be fantastic! P.S. can you really make money online based on the traffic it receives if you have your own website?

Stephanie, it depends on a lot of different factors. It took me almost a year to make money and then at that point, it was still not even close to minimum wage. It’s not a way to get rich or even get income quick. It takes a lot of time, devotion, and motivation, so make sure you love what you’re doing and do it for passion first. That’s the best advice I can give you. Thanks for reading and glad you enjoy the tips and savings.
