It can be. The offers are an annoying part, but will help out here and
there. Credit Card offers (offers that require a credit card or pre-
paid credit card) seem to earn the most money. I did 4 of those all
together, and got approved for 2 (1 was a 100% free trial, the other
was a pay-to-ship deal).
You can also earn cash back if you buy stuff online. In the cash
shopping area, if you plan to buy stuff online, search for the store
first. I’ve never done this, but I heard on the TT forum that you
sometimes wait up to a month before that amount is credited back. Those
amounts vary- for instance at Walmart.com, you earn 1% back (not much),
at Best Buy, I think it’s 2%, then there are online magazine shops
where you earn back as much as 18%.
There are daily surveys you can do as well (I think it’s called Cash
Survey on the menu) for $.75 each. You can only do 1 survey a day, and
it’s system is set up so that if you don’t qualify for one, it re-
routes you to another one. Most the time, it will find one you can
complete. Every once in a while, you get one you can’t complete, in
which case, they thank you for your time.
You will get a newsletter twice a month, on the 1st and the 15th. In
there are more offers like the $.50 ones you find under Cash Offers.
You can do up to 3 of them for $1 each, so if you complete all 6 per
month, you get $6. Those ones I’ve never had a problem getting
approved. I think you can do them any time between the date it’s
delivered, and when the next one is delivered.
Referrals help, and even if you can’t find any online, you can buy
friendship bracelets for 8 pearls (you earn free pearls with the games
you do at the end of each offer), which will get you 2 referrals each.
It’s the only thing you can spend pearls on that I can think of, too,
so invest in a few of those. Basically, anyone who goes to the site
unreferred will be assigned a referral. You get a 20% bonus based on
what a referral makes, so if they make $100, you earn $20. Also, if
they refer someone, you get 5% of what they earn, so if they earn $100,
you get $5.
There are occasional contests, and treasure hunts you can participate
in. The current Treasure Hunt is ongoing- any one who finishes it gets
$100. I haven’t really looked much at it, so I don’t know what all is
involved, but I would imagine it requires some amount of work like
completing specific offers to earn the next piece of the “Treasure
Honestly, aside from a few of the credit card offers (I recommend
getting a prepaid mastercard or visa at Walgreens or Rite Aid for
this), I’ve mostly done just the newsletter offers, some survey’s, and
a few of the rare, freebie, higher paying offers.
I think there’s a signup one for eBay. You sign up (even if you already
have an account, sign up a new one), and once you make a bid (it
doesn’t have to be a winning bid- find some expensive item with no
bids, and put $.99 on it, so it’ll get out bid), you get approved for
the offer. It pays $5, or used to. If it’s changed at all, then it’s
gone up, rarely do they drop in price.
You can also sign up for poetry.com and picture.com by entering a poem
or picture (nothing spectacular, just write out a few words to
poetry.com, and send a picture of something you took to picture.com),
nad I believe the payout is $1.50 each on those. Both of those and eBay
are 100% free, no credit card needed.
Get lots of different email addresses, all free ones, because they know
who completes the offers by the link you follow, not the email address
you use. The cheaper offers are spam machines- within a day of using an
email address, you’ll have 100 spam emails with that address sending
crap to you.
I’m trying to think of any other details, but my head is all foggy
right now. My seasonal allergies kicked into high gear with no warning
yesterday, and I took the wrong medication. Most OTC meds leave me with
this groggy, half drugged feeling the entire next day, and I have that
right now, big time. Ugh.
