Make Money On Line

I had a few readers recently ask me how they could make a few extra bucks on-line these days.  Some have had back to school expenses and others are wanting to get a jump on holiday savings/shopping.   There are a few sites that I personally use and would recommend to anyone looking to get on the survey/product review bandwagon. 

Before you sign up for any of these, I always recommend that you set up a separate g-mail or yahoo account so that you do not clutter your “good” in box with any of these emails.  You can get quite a few coming in at a time.

My Survey:  This is a simple one.  You complete surveys and earn points.  You then can redeem your points towards cash or prizes. 

My Points:  This is a simple way to earn points to redeem towards gift cards.  You just look at “junk mail” and you can earn points.  You then redeem your points for gift cards.  My favorites are the Amazon cards!  You can even complete surveys and earn bonus points!  Refer your family or friends and you’ll get even more points!

Synovate:  I shared this site yesterday.  This is a site where you complete surveys and can earn cash and prizes.  

In-Box Dollars:  This is a site similar to My Points.  You earn points when you look at emails and click on offers.  You can complete surveys for more points.  You can even earn points when you shop on line or play games! You then redeem your points and you can get cash!

Swagbucks:  This is one I talk about ALL of the time!  I love this site!  You earn points for surveys, offers, codes in the swidget and toolbar — all sorts of ways!  It is fun and it is easy to accumulate points quickly and then redeem them for great prizes!  This is another one where I rack up Amazon cards!  You can get more info on Swagbucks in my Swagbucks 101 post.

Toluna Surveys:  I do this one as well.  This is a great survey site — that’s all I’ve ever done.  Again – you earn points and then redeem them for cash.  You can even get points just for completing your profile!

    I love opinion place, you don’t need to wait to cash out, each survey completed you get $1 – $3 amazon or paypal giftcards codes emailed to you a few weeks later

    Also Have had okay luck with opinion outpost and Light speed

    Not doing to well with my points seems to take forever to earn enough
