SurveySavvy $40 Study. Looking for people planning on buying or leasing a new automobile in the next year.





surveysavvy is looking for anyone that is planning to buy or lease a new car within the next year to participate in a new savvyconnect research study called Project Chronos in exchange for a $40 incentive.





i just received an email today, the 10th, that they are still needing more participants, even though the study officially began on the 7th. i have done several savvyconnect studies before and they are very easy. you do need to download their application on your computer and phone which is completely passive and then answer a few short surveys. i have always been paid for my work and have never had any issues with their software.

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.

Special Offer! Earn $5 When You Join Checkout 51 and Upload your First Receipt!



who doesn't love easy shopping cash back apps?  if you haven't tried checkout 51 yet now is the perfect time to do so because they are giving you $5 for just uploading your first receipt!

i have been a member for about 2 yrs. now. they don't have as many offers as ibotta but they do have a sweeps every week that only requires an uploaded receipt totaling $60 or more to enter and they also have a 'pick your own' offer weekly that includes general produce items that earn you a quarter so at the very least you can take advantage of those two offers every week!





you can sign up now and simply upload any grocery receipt over $60 and score your free $5!!! cash out is by check when you hit $20 and the app is available for both iPhones and android.

take advantage of this limited time offer now--and we both earn a bonus!

sign up link for checkout 51: click here.

iSecretShop: Become a Secret Shop Agent!



for those of you interested in secret shops i recommend this app to start out with. i rarely do secret shops, only picking the ones very close to me at places i am already comfortable shopping in. i have done about a dozen through this app and have found them quite easy and painless. i have never had a shop rejected from them and they have always paid, although be warned it takes 8 full weeks!

they even offer web and phone based shops so you don't even need to leave the house! pay is typical for mystery shopping, not the best, and some not paying anything extra at all but of course the free service, meal or product is part of the incentive.


the app is available for both iPhone and android. i recommend downloading the app, filling out your profile, accepting ALL the individual  MSP company agreements and seeing what's available in your area. you don't even need a smartphone--you can do shops from your laptop or tablet as well.

happy secret shopping!

Join Yahoo's Research Community!




i just received an invite to become a member of yahoo's research community. i don't have many details other than it said it involves user testing projects and participants are compensated with prepaid gift cards. it said we could share the screener link with friends and family too.

i filled out the screener and now will just sit back and wait to see if i qualify for anything. hopefully this will be something good!

here is the original invite i received:



Hello,

You’re receiving this email because you have completed a survey with us in the past showing your interest in participating in user studies with us. We invite you to join our newly launched Yahoo Research community. Once you’ve taken our initial survey, you will be added into our official Yahoo Research community database. Going forward, we will use this initial survey to match you to suitable Yahoo user studies as they occur. We’ll send you surveys for specific Yahoo user studies we believe you may qualify for using the email address you provide us with in the survey.

By joining the Yahoo Research community, you will help us improve Yahoo products, both present and future ones. If you participate in a user study with us, we’ll provide you with a gift card in appreciation of your time. The amount of the gift card is dependent on the length of the user study.

Find & Save: An Awesome New App That Earns You Money.


please enter code for my referral: QRGG 
i will receive a bonus for referrals and would really appreciate the gesture. :)

oh my goodness i am liking this new app! find & save is truly offering up FREE MONEY just for shopping at their sponsored stores---no specific items to buy or scan--just take a pic of your receipt and hit send. i have made over $10 in less than 2 months because it's all places i shop anyways: target, walmart, mcdonalds, kohl's, cvs, the list goes on and on! the deals vary--some a flat amount, like 50 cents earned, and others are a percentage of your purchase. threshold for cashing out is $25 and pays through paypal. deals change daily too so always check the app after any shopping trip!


in just 4 wks i have already earned more than i do in 6 months time at my other shopping apps. definitely give it a try and see what you think!

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 :)

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:

ResearchMatch: Pairing Up Researchers with Participants.

ResearchMatch is a site that helps researchers pair up with participants for research studies. simply fill out the registration and wait for a researcher to contact you for a potential study. Anyone living in the US can sign up--all ages and backgrounds are welcome.

although most of the studies seem medical based you do not need to have a medical condition to be selected for studies. in fact, i was just contacted for my first study through them and the only prerequisite was being a married couple with children.

since this site is only available for non-profit organizations (think university research departments), they may not be the highest paying studies but it is still worth signing up for since you can always decline any study. 


here is the link to join. even though they describe participants as 'volunteers' i believe the majority of studies are in fact paying ones--my current study pays $90.

here is a snapshot ResearchMatch's current stats. nearly 500 current studies!

Datacoup--Sell Your Personal Data For Cash!






yes, there now is a company that sells your data profile to prospective companies and market researchers for a set price. the site is datacoup and they believe the consumer should actually make a profit from all the information that is collected from us. the price for your data is based on how much you are willing to share--below is a graph of what categories they are currently using:


everyone has a different threshold with what they are comfortable sharing. i have linked up fb, twitter, linkedin, foursquare, google +, instagram, and my debit card. i have not linked my credit card (i haven't used it in years and quite honestly cannot remember my username and password to link it up!) 

right now my data is going for $1.16 a week although it could be higher if i linked up an active credit card.

i have no idea who is purchasing my data or why. most buyers only buy my data for one week though. i average a purchase of my data about once a month.

in the 6 months i have been a member i have not had any security issues or data breaches. payment is made by a credit to a debit card you provide.

i realize this passive money maker is not for everyone but it is free, it is completely passive and so far i have found it to be completely safe. i figure everyone is already accessing my personal info when i am online, i might as well get paid for it!

check them out here: https://datacoup.com and get all the fine print details.

Make Money Online with University Research Departments.

many universities offer nationwide registration with their research departments. i have had success with the ones below:

https://anderson.sona-systems.com/student_new_user.aspx

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ox5H_PpPqGKbMJ5jHcPlci9BgfaLKItWO9DBp_guu68/viewform




studies are pretty infrequent and just adequate paying (usually amazon). the most confusing part can be figuring out which studies are ONLINE and which are IN PERSON. once i registered for an in person study unknowingly. just really take the time to read the study--the word ONLINE will be somewhere in the description.

you also may have more studies if you proactively go the available studies site rather than just waiting for email invites.

here is an example of a current online study:
best of luck!

How I Earn $100 a Month From Swagbucks.




you probably have heard of swagbucks, they claim to be the #1 online rewards site in the world. for years i ignored them and thought it was a whole lot of work for little pay compared to other sites but i admit i have had a complete change of heart this past year.

swagbucks is fun, engaging, and offers something for everyone. i don't go crazy on the site but i have managed to create a steady monthly $75-$100 income (paypal, amazon and walmart gcs are my go-tos) for just about 30 minutes a day.

Say YES to Yaarlo and Earn Easy Cash for your Receipts.

ENTER MY CODE FOR A BONUS: BRIDGETB953


Say 'Yes' to Yaarlo, the newest mobile shopping rebate app. super easy to use, just snap a pic of any restaurant, grocery store, retail store, personal services or entertainment receipt--even online ones! Yaarlo does not have the ability to take multi pics of a receipt though so make sure you stand back and get the whole receipt in a single shot! so far i have had only one refused but it was super long and i guess unreadable in a single shot. available in the app store and soon to google play!

ProductTube--Get Paid For Making Videos.


well since EXPOtv bit the dust i have been looking for similar alternatives. heard some buzz about this site, ProductTube.

seems that you go to the site and apply for any existing projects. the projects i have seen so far seem to be 'in clusters' and quite generic so it would be easy to buy things you already use and then just do a quick video review of them. here is an example of a current open project:

Enroll. Give Websites Feedback and Get Paid.





just discovered this one. super easy so far too. you give your feedback on a website's usability and get paid. easy stuff too, like if a logo fits or the content makes sense. basically you just sign up and take a quick test (which you GET PAID FOR) and then sit back and wait for work. welcome to Enroll.



so far i have just taken the initial test and one real test but they were super easy. along the lines of 'if you clicked on the first link what would you expect to find?' or 'why do you think some dots are red and others black?'

the total test took under 5 minutes and i was instantly awarded .60 cents! i still don't really know how i earned the bonuses but i am thrilled to take them!






i hope to hear a lot more from enroll. you should definitely check them out too!

Join The Newest Cashback Site, Yuno!

UPDATE! SO FAR THIS ONE HAS BEEN A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. I DON'T RECOMMEND.


we have a new contender to soon join the net for rewarding you with cash back for shopping online---introducing Yuno.



right now they are gathering members prior to launch and to reward those getting in on the ground floor you will earn $3 paypal if you are one of the first 5000 sign ups. right now they are at 4800 so don't delay!

what is yuno? well i am guessing it will be similar to fatwallet and ebates but have more of an emphasis on rewarding those that share their purchases on social media. here is their description:


even if you miss the cut off the next level of 30,000 sign ups will each earn $4!
i can't say much else about the site since it is in it's infancy but i am taking a chance--really, what do we have to lose?

200 spots left to earn $3 paypal for just signing up!  http://yuno.co/?
