Legitimate Survey Companies can be a great way to earn a little extra. They will no way replace a regular income, nor can you live off of them, but you can pay a bill or two each month.
Some are better than others. I have done surveys before to help pay bills. One thing that I find a little frustrating about just survey companies is that the surveys for my demographic (younger mom, homemaker with kids) is slim and I spend a couple of minutes each survey just to find out that I don’t qualify. I still earn, but it is a bit more of an effort.
Well, last Friday, I joined a new company called Send Earnings. I joined for two reasons 1. They were going to give $5 just for signing up! It is a sign-up bonus that they are running right now, and 2. I always like to try these and see which is worth putting more of my time into.
Now Send Earnings has more than 1 way to earn money, not just surveys. In fact, I earned $6.53 in just a few minutes of signing up!
I also like the fact that this one is very easy to use, that I can track my earnings real time and they provide to-do lists (they are optional tasks) and you get paid for each individual task, but you also get paid a bonus for completing the list!
This was my first list that I completed in around 15 minutes!
I quickly did these tasks on the list:
First was to activate my account. It was an email I received after signing up and I got the $5 bonus.
I then did the first survey which paid me .50 (my second survey was $2.25, but of course this will vary every time!)
I then did my first search which paid me a few cents. I searched for The Thrifty Couple of course 🙂
I then confirmed my first paid email when it arrived (It took time after I joined to receive this, but I spend 2 second clicking on the “confirm this PaidEmail” button.
So I got paid for each individual task and since I also completed the list, it gave me a bonus of .50.
This was my balance after doing 15 minutes of activities after signing up, then it added another .01 for a total balance of $6.53 the first day. I then didn’t come back to this until this morning.
This was my new current list. I was on for about 25 minutes this morning. I took 1 survey and opened emails and I ended up with a balance of $10.87! I haven’t completed the above list yet as I only had a few minutes to spend, but I was surprised how quickly my balance is climbing!
Now, you will receive several emails and for each one that you open, you receive .02 (you can sign-up using your coupons, offers and spam email address if you have one). I am finding that they send around 5-10 a day. But this takes a click and I get paid. These emails are from advertisers offering products and promotions, but I just skip through the advertisement quickly (unless something does catch my eye, which it hasn’t) and then quickly click on the “confirm email” button at the bottom and then I get my .02! It looks like this!
You can request payment after your balance reaches $30. If you only earned $1 a day, that gives you $30 a month. For us, $30 will cover a utility bill each month with just a few minutes of my time each day! That’s great!
So here’s how to get started. Head to the Send Earnings site HERE and complete the form that looks like this:
Then you will receive an email that you need to activate (and then get your $5 bonus)!
And then do tasks from surveys, opening emails, search the web and more!
I think you will like seeing your balance increase in real time like I do 🙂
Again, I do want to emphasize that you will not get rich doing surveys, replace a job or anything of the sort. But if you spend 15 minutes a day doing the random tasks, it will add up to pay a small bill or two. Second, you will get a lot of emails (especially since you get paid .02 for each one you open and confirm) and so you might want to start a second email address to keep these in order and out of your regular inbox. It’s up to you, but a suggestion!
