Share Your Thoughts — Make a Little Money

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Want to find a way to earn a little extra money, gift cards or other items? There are so many ways you can do this right from the comfort of your lazyboy in the evening. I do this myself to bring in a little extra money to help out our family.

Now, you won’t be able to pay the mortgage by doing these, but getting an occasional check for $20.00 or a $10.00 gift card in the mail isn’t too bad for a few minutes of work.

Here are some places you can sign up to get your share of the cash and other freebies that these companies give to you for sharing your honest thoughts and opinions about all sorts of things.

MyPoints.comI love My Points! You get paid for looking at emails and sites in the form of points. After you accumulate them, you cash them in for gift cards. Click the image to sign up.

Send Earnings: This is one where you get paid to read e-mails. Go here to learn more and sign up.

There are some of the programs that I have used. I say used as I can’t keep up with everything, so I do some for a while and then change to keep it interesting (and also so my mail box doesn’t get bogged down).

I do recommend you set up a g-mail or yahoo mail account to use for these. It helps to have all of your money makers in one place!
