Focus Groups Round 8

--scoring focus groups is where the money is at. consequently, many many people are vying for a handful of slots. register for every focus group you can find to increase your odds. yes, it is a pain to fill out that initial profile but once it's done you are in their database and ready to get screeners! i suggest doing batches of 4-5 at a time so it's not so tedious and keeping a list of the ones you have joined since it's impossible to keep track of all of them!









and don't forget to also sign up with all the previous focus groups i have mentioned:

Opinion Outpost: How To Make It Your Favorite Survey Site.



opinion outpost is probably the first survey company i joined, 3 yrs ago, and i still consider it one of my main sites. what makes them a gem of a site is simply that they are so big and so many other companies use them. i can't tell you how many product tests, invoke $35 sessions, and multi-day online boards i have scored through opinion outpost.

now to be honest, i close out a TON of surveys i begin---they just are too long, too low paying and i can immediately tell they are leading to nothing bigger or better. i just 'x' out and try again for a different survey. so i guess i cherry pick but in doing so i am not exacerbated with some 20 minutes survey about beverages that pays 40 cents. soon you too will easily be able to pluck out the winners and make it well worth your time.

the good points about opinion outpost include:

-many payment options, as listed below and they pay QUICKLY.


-lots of surveys. like i said, they are one of the big guns, owned by SSI. i bet i get 30 surveys daily--although i may only choose to complete a handful of them. never wait for emails---always go to the site. the first few surveys are laborious with all their screener questions but soon they stop and you go straight to surveys.




so if you are new to surveys or just haven't given opinion outpost a chance, i would suggest you give them a try--just be picky and don't waste your time on junk. good luck!

Pinecone Research Open Link!



pinecone doesn't always have an open link but right now they are screening for new members! pinecone is often regarded as the best survey site---automatic $3 per survey, zero disqualifies and ample opportunities for product tests.

the downside is they are picky and are looking for specific demographics when they are accepting new members. you may not get chosen the first few tries but eventually you will be the demographic they have openings for--trust me! it took me several attempts. you may also get an error message if they have closed all applications for the month.

they also quite readily give members 'the boot' if they ignore emailed surveys. always prioritize your pinecone surveys!

good luck and welcome to pinecone :)

TIP! once accepted--go to your profile and find where it asks about survey frequency--check 'no limit' to maximize your invites!

bevRAGE: The Alcohol App That Pays You Back!




please use my referral code: KSQXPFYU


hello bevRAGE! it's about time someone made a cash back shopping app completely dedicated to drinking! this is the drinking gal's ibotta. best yet, you can earn for both grocery and bar/restaurant purchases. the bad news is they are just rolling out and not in all areas yet---including mine :(. hopefully they will expand soon and we can all take advantage. obviously, you need to be at least 21 or over to redeem any offers.





when you hit $20 you can request a check or have a paypal deposit. i have zero offers in my particular zip code so i can't really say what kind of drinks are eligible in bars and restaurants but here is a snapshot of some of the in-store items eligible:

Radial Insight: Your New Favorite Survey Site!

*ATTENTION! PEOPLE HAVE BEEN REPORTING VARIOUS ERROR MESSAGES WHEN TRYING TO REGISTER. I HAVE EMAILED RADIAL INSIGHT TO SEE WHAT THE ISSUE IS AND IF THEY ARE STILL ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS. STAY TUNED!*


i have stumbled across a new survey site and trust me this one is a major keeper! take a minute right now and sign up for Radial Insight. this new survey site is continuing the trend of not having a 'portal site' but rather just using emails to communicate surveys and rewards, similar to innopoll and livewire.



payment is almost instantaneous and comes in the form of Tango credit. no paypal option but lots of gift cards to choose from, including amazon, iTunes and target.
right now there is no referral program and they probably won't institute one, also similar to innopoll and livewire. so far i have received 5 surveys and all have paid either $3 or $5---and all have taken under 10 minutes! seriously they are paying some of the best survey wages out there and i hope it stays that way for awhile!




one word of warning! the sign up process is super short and almost seems too abrupt--it truly is only like 3 questions and then it ends. don't panic! you will hear back from them in a few days--i think it was almost 4-5 days before i heard back and i was convinced my application didn't go through.
you will get a follow up email from emma to complete your registration that looks like this:

The 9 Shopping Apps That Have Paid Me Over $300.



did these little money makers even exist 5 yrs ago? it amazes me how many apps there even are now. i have gotten myself into a nice routine where i automatically scan all my receipts after putting the groceries away. it does take a few minutes but those few minutes each shopping trip add up nicely. here are my top earners!


ibotta: use my code EZL4Q and earn a bonus!
pros: probably the most offers available and one of the easiest to upload receipts

cons: only select stores are eligible

earnings so far:  $50.35 paypal


checkout51
pros: any store allowed and a weekly $500 sweeps

cons: limited eligible products

earnings so far: $37.75 check

receiptpal
pros: nearly all receipts accepted, even online ones

cons: no ability to take multiple pics of a receipt--long ones may be rejected

earnings so far: $55 amazon


receipt hoguse my code TROST892 and earn free spins!
pros: all grocery stores accepted

cons: seems to be one of my slowest earners

earnings so far: $30 paypal


walmart savings-catcher
pros: they auto match any competitors advertised deals on items you bought

cons: i like this one but it is hit or miss--many receipts earn me zero back

earnings so far: $63.41 store credit


find & save please enter my referral code: QRGG
pros: can be a quick money earner.

cons: offers seems to last only a couple days

earnings so far: $27.75 paypal 


yaarlo  please enter my code: BRIDGETB953
pros: any food, gas or grocery receipt accepted

cons: no ability to take multiple pics of a long receipt

earnings so far: $45.77 amazon


my last two: mobisave and savingstar i have earned very little with but only because i just started using them. i really like that mobisave auto pays into your paypal--no minimum required!

savingstar is good but only accepts certain retailers. cash out minimum is only $5.

FindParticipants Review





i have been with this panel, findparticipants, for a few months. so far i have been invited to 3 studies, one being completely voluntarily and the other 2 involving a raffle/sweeps for the incentive. so obviously not ideal but since the amount of participants for these surveys is probably low your odds are much better winning a prize here than with some of the other big name sites. that being said, i haven't won anything yet :(



that doesn't mean there aren't any paying sites here, their site says there are, i just haven't been invited to any yet. nevertheless, it is worth the signup just to see what comes your way. if anything else, i find research, more academic-based surveys are far more engaging and interesting!

Invitation to a new online community, the League


my-take has just launched a brand new online community, the league. it involves members that are active and may rely on sports medicine to help them along the way--think neck, wrist or back braces.

right now they are accepting new members. if interested leave your name and email in the comments below. i will delete your email once i forward you the screener.

no word on incentives yet. the site simply states:

Will I receive anything for my participation in this panel?
We appreciate your continued participation in the panel and your feedback is invaluable to us. Active members in the community will be incentivized for their time.
good luck!

Focus Groups Round 7

it never ends! i truly believe the number of focus groups cannot be conquered. i know it's a pain reentering your info over and over but scoring a few $100 studies makes it all worthwhile! take 30 minutes and sign up with these sites now! i also will highly suggest investing in a webcam NOW. so many studies require them now and you are excluding yourself from many high paying opportunities if you don't have one. it is $30 that will pay itself off in spades.

PrizeRebel: If You Like Swagbucks, You Will Like This Site!


I love swagbucks, i easily make $100 a month from the site. i was ready to add another gpt site but wanted to choose one that it just as good as sbs, if not better. according to survey police, prizerebel is actually the top rated gpt site, rated HIGHER than swagbucks. that was enough for me and i signed up.

within 45 minutes i already hit my first goal! if you are use to navigating sbs, you will easily get the hang of prizerebel--in fact most the offers and surveys are the same.



they also have bonus codes which i grab from their fb page--just like them and set it to receive all notifications.

even better, you can cash out paypal at only $5! how easy is that?

a quick TIP! with prizerebel you have to manually 'claim' your bonus when you hit it, unlike swagbucks where it automatically is awarded to you. this is very easy to forget and you can keep going up to various levels and claiming each bonus level each day. 



anyways, so far i am really liking this site and am hoping i can also net a $100 a month here as well. as it seems a near duplicate for swagbucks, i think this is super doable.
