Making Money!



Here's everything that I do (almost daily) to get freebies, products, gift cards, subscriptions etc. This list is extensive and may look daunting but I tell you, it's worth it. Feel free to post any questions in the comments below. I should note that every single one of these are free to join/use. While you can get credit for purchases on some sites, you don't HAVE to buy anything. I would like to mention that I do get a referral bonus on some of these sites (and you will as well when you sign up!)

MyPoints
MyPoints is a site you can earn points on to redeem for a multitude of different things: gift cards, products, too many to name. I've been a member on this site since like, 1998; it's legit, and one of the best of its kind. I haven't done the math, but I believe that this is the highest paying cash-back site out there. You can get points in a multitude of ways: surveys (limited # per day), watching videos (limited # per day), searches (limited # monthly), referrals, shopping online through their links, printing and redeeming coupons and click-throughs in emails. Points can be redeemed for a LARGE variety of different things (my favorite being the PayPal gift card!!) TIP #1: When shopping online combine this w/the other cash-back sites to get MAX cash back!! Tip #2: You can print coupons from blog sites or a site like coupons.com, but you should check first if the coupon is on MyPoints or SwagBucks because you would get points for printing and redeeming coupons through those sites: give the credit to yourself, not to another blogger/website.

SwagBucks
SwagBucks is another site much like MyPoints where you can watch tv clips/movie trailers/commercials to get SwagBucks (their points system), searching using their search engine, surveys, printing/using coupons, playing games, referring friends, and much more. There are offers you can complete to get SwagBucks too; some are free to do, some require your info, some require a purchase. TIP #1: When shopping online combine this w/the other cash-back sites to get MAX cash back!! Tip #2: Redeem your Bing points for SwagBucks to maximize redemption value!! Tip #3: You can print coupons from blog sites or a site like coupons.com, but you should check first if the coupon is on MyPoints or SwagBucks because you would get points for printing and redeeming coupons through those sites: give the credit to yourself, not to another blogger/website.

Inbox Dollars
This site is also like the above sites: they email you and if you click the link in the email, you earn money. You can complete surveys, offers and refer friends to earn as well. They also just added rewards for shopping through their links. Once you reach $30 you can cash out; they send you a check in the mail. TIP: When shopping online combine this w/the other cash-back sites to get MAX cash back!!

Top Cash Back
This site is strictly for shopping online and earning cash back for purchases you make. After a verification period the amount earned goes into your account, which you can then request via ACH, PayPal or an Amazon gift card. TIP: When shopping online combine this w/the other cash-back sites to get MAX cash back!!

Bing Rewards
Bing's got ways you can earn credits, and those credits get you things. Right now I redeem the credits for 500 SwagBucks, because that seems to be the best reward so far. Daily searches will add you points, and depending on your status you can do different amounts of searches every day, both via PC and phone. It takes literally 5 minutes to do the searches every day, at most. In about 3 weeks you have enough credits to order one of the SwagBucks cards, which equates to a little over $5 if you choose an Amazon gift card on the SB site.

CrowdTap
This is BY FAR my favorite site EVER. They've got Quickhits, which are like mini survey questions, missions, challenges, and sample/shares, and all of these actions earn you points on the site. The more points you get, the more entries into the monthly drawings you will get, and thus the more chances at winning gift cards at the end of the month! They've also sent me random gifts. This one's so much fun and has really great benefits!!!

BzzAgent
BzzAgent has very short & quick surveys you can take to qualify for products to try out. You can earn MyPoints points for some of these, too! They mail you the products when you qualify and then you just do some reviews, sharing on social media, etc.

Smiley 360
This is a site that you can get free products to test out and give reviews on. You apply for missions by completing short easy surveys, they send you the stuff if you're chosen to participate, and then you just have a few actions to do and a final survey and that's it.

House Party
Here you apply to host "house parties". You invite people to your house for the party, they send you the swag to give away at the party, and then you report back after the party's over on how it went, how everyone reacted, etc. There are many different ones you can apply for. They also have Chatterbox which doesn't involve parties but just verbal sharing w/others.

SplashScore
This is a Facebook app that calculates a score based on your posts, and how many likes and comments you receive from others. If you have friends who use the app as well, you get more points from their likes/comments on your posts. You can apply for different giveaways they host once your score's high enough and you're eligible. They also award random Amazon gift cards and email them to you.

Influenster
This site will send you "VoxBoxes" which are filled w/full sized products to test out and review. You get to keep everything, and the goods are great! After you get the items they ask that you do a few things to review the products. You can earn badges for answering questions or posting reviews, which gets you VoxBoxes quicker.

Klout
Klout measures your social media presence and will award perks based off of that.

Shopkick
This is an app that gives you points when you walk in participating stores, scan products in the store, or make purchases with a linked credit/debit card. You can redeem points for rewards - best reward is a Coach purse! There are some coupons on here sometimes.

Ibotta
Ibotta is an app that you can get rebates on groceries, online shopping, movies, pet supplies, and more. You buy the product, scan the receipt and product bar code, and they add up the savings in your account. After you reach $5 you can cash out to PayPal or Venmo, or you can order gift cards. You also get $$ for referrals (right away too, no waiting or quota to meet)!

PURELL Loyalty Program
You can complete actions daily to earn points toward coupons, hand sanitizer, or gift cards.

Fandemonium
This is Vizio's site for rewards. You can earn points by clicking links, sharing on social media, viewing pages, etc. I used my points on this site to get a free 3 month subscription to Netflix. You can also hoard up your points for bigger things like a nice TV.

RecycleBank
This site is awesome. You can learn about tons of different things: recycling, DIY projects, healthy choices. You earn points for completing actions, like a poll, a quiz, or informative slideshow, there's different things on the site all the time. You can then redeem for a ton of really cool things. I got coupons for the movies, and a 26 week Sunday paper subscription for free. There is a daily pledge that you will earn 5 points from daily when there isn't anything else to do to get points. They have TONS of magazine subscriptions you can get, too.

Listia
This is an auction site (much like eBay) where you use credits instead of money - making everything pretty much free. You can even get free shipping on most listings. You can also list your old stuff on there, get credits for them, and then use those to bid on stuff. I've won about $100 in Amazon gift cards from the credits I've earned so far!!

Opinion Outpost
This is a survey site - and it's the best one. You get an entry into a quarterly $10k drawing for every survey you either complete or are not eligible for. You earn points for surveys, and can redeem for lots of stuff - $10 PayPal credit for 100 points, or $5 Amazon gift card for 50 points - and it's really quick to get those points!!
