Money Earned December 2010

Okay so I haven’t posted this for a few months now, as I honestly forgot about it. Well, since there are some great survey companies out there, I wanted to share the ones that I use and what my balances are. Let me know if you have any questions or experiences with any of these companies! Or is there one I don’t have listed, that I should? I have been signing up for companies like these for over 10 years now and these are ones that I have had good luck with and am trying out. I do sometimes cash these balances out throughout the year, but I try to hold out until Christmas and then I redeem them for gift cards for Christmas presents!

: $12.99 total earned (need $2 to cash out via Paypal)


: $ 37.20 balance (need $30 to cash out via check – I have cashed out once so far)


: 3910 SwagBucks balance (use towards gift certificates or cash via Paypal – only need 700 for a $5 Paypal deposit!)

: $ 26.61 balance (Need $30 to cash out via check)

: 9716 points (Need 4500 to get a $10 gift card)


: 7492 points balance (This is my favorite. It’s easy and I have cashed out a few hundred dollars in gift cards over the 12 years I have been a member)

: $ 25.70 balance (Need $25 to cash out) – You get $5 just by signing up!

: $ 9 balance (Only need $5 to cash out)


: 2450 pts. balance (redeem for gift cards that start at 3500 pts.)


: $4.50 balance (Cash out anytime by requesting a check)


: $0.20 (paid weekly via Paypal and you can make more depending on your demographics and what ads are available to you!)


: 35 pts. (Can now redeem 10 pts. for an Amazon gift card)


: $87.35 Total Cash Earned (Pd. balance via paypal quarterly)

UPromise College Dream Sweepstakes

Also, as a side note when shopping online make sure you check out a shopping site that pays you cash back to shop thru them.

I check Upromise, Ebates, and Shop At Home and go with whichever one pays the highest percent!

    I amm really pleased to read tnis weblogg posts which contains lots of useful data, thanks foor providing these
    kinds of information.

  2. Hey! I see you didn’t mention zoombucks

    I love this site. They have so many gift card choices, it’s great. I’ve earned $60 in amazon gift cards in the last 2 months. You can cash out at 2000 points the first time for a $20 gift card and then any time after that it’s 1000 points for $10 (but you can save up to get larger denominations). There are no limits on how many gcs you can order each day/month.

  3. I really like Opinion Outpost…check it out. Cash out is $5 and you can get instant Amazon codes!
