Target's Online Review Program is Looking for New Members!


ATTENTION! DO NOT FALL FOR THE TARGET 'MYSTERY SHOP' $200 SCAM EMAIL. THAT EMAIL IS A SCAM. THIS PROGRAM DOES NOT PAY ANY MONETARY INCENTIVE--IT ONLY GIVES YOU FREE MERCHANDISE IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR REVIEW.


focus pointe global has a division called STARS that involves having registrants receive products sold at Target in exchange for an honest review at target.com. so far i have only been accepted for two product trials: one was a nice youth bedding set and the other was uniform pants. of course i got to keep the products and writing the reviews took only about 30 minutes total. also know that there is no monetary compensation--the incentive is the merchandise.

here is one of my actual reviews:

Survey.com: Earn Money Doing Store Audits and Merchandising.


here is a nifty little app that i use to make some extra money.  i was lucky enough to score a gig through them for whole foods that lasted for several months and involved me simply attaching coupons to certain products on the shelves. each job only took me 10 minutes and paid $12. i made nearly $200 for the duration of the project and it was super easy. payment was through paypal.

here is the link: https://survey.com




they also often have walmart merchandising jobs where you actually go in and re-merchandise or change out signage for certain products. for some reason it is never any walmarts near me so i haven't tried one of those jobs yet.

it is actually two different apps. one app, survey.com, is available for both apple and android, and is more survey based. screeners for bigger projects will show up here as well. if selected, you then download their second app, survey-merchandiser. please note, DO NOT download the survey-merchandiser app unless you have been approved to do so. from their site:
 "Only download this application if you have explicitly been instructed. 
This application is for approved users only."


i think you have to prove your 'worthiness' on the first app before they offer you the good stuff. that being said, i do not do the surveys that only offer a sweeps entry, which are the majority of them and i don't feel that has hurt me.

good luck and and may the surveys be with you :)

Guys That Groom: A Product Testing Site For Men!


JOIN GUYS THAT GROOM!
GuysThatGroom is the only panel in America where REAL men give REAL opinions on REAL grooming products -- and get rewarded for it!

the Pink Panel has rolled out a new product testing for MEN called Guys That Groom. i love the pink panel--i have been able to test a few products from them and you get to keep the product PLUS they usually throw in an amazon gc. if you are a guy or if you want to sign up your significant other---here is the link: guys that groom

i also highly recommend liking their fb page to easily locate all current studies.

hope everyone qualifies for some great product tests!

The Surprising Amount I Earned Online In 2015.


another great online earning year! i keep good records of all my online earnings and for 2015 i made a grand total of:

$15,339.19

that's $1,278.27 a month

or $42.61 a day

to further break it down:

71% cash/check/paypal:
$10,841.24

29% giftcards(usually walmart or amazon): 
$4,497.95.


granted, this is nothing compared to when i was working full time but it is great income for a homemaker! back then i was paying $460 PER WEEK for childcare, working many nights and weekends and nearly every holiday. also add in the cost of gas, work clothes and meals. now i am making decent money and am always home for my family (but admittedly on my laptop a lot!)

i also looked up my top 15 earners for last year. now keep in mind, i belong to over 100 sites, which includes survey companies, research panels, mobile apps and online communities--some only earning me $20 over the course of a year and others earning nearly $1000. the higher paying focus groups and online communities came about through invites through my regular survey taking sites or filling out an endless amount of screeners. here are my top survey site earners for the year:
