For todays post I wanted to talk about a really easy way I earn a little extra money when I’m bored or just sitting around watching tv. It’s called Cashcrate.com I’m sure most of you have heard about all of the “get paid to do free surveys” and “get paid for your opinion” sites. Honestly, most of them are either scams or it’ll take you years before you reach the minimum threshold for payment. Cashcrate is not like this at all. There are tons of quick and easy surveys to fill out, commercials to watch and rate, games to play and even liking a Facebook page can earn you a few cents.
You might be thinking, why would a company PAY you to do these things? Well as for the surveys, companies need to do their market research and what better way to see what the public thinks of a product, ad etc. than enticing you to review them with money.
Some of the offers on Cashcrate take a really long time to fill out but the majority can be done within 2-5 mins. Now, I don’t sit here and fill out surveys for 8 hours a day. I’ll just do a few while I’m watching tv or before I go to bed. I probably spend half hour a day on them at most. Within my first week of signing up I earned $38.47. It might not seem like a lot off the bat but it really does add up quick! After you reach the $20 payment threshold they’ll send you a check in the mail for your earnings. And yes they actually send you your money on time.
Here is a little video explaining how it all works
I have a few tips that will help you if you decide to try this method for yourself.
**Note: I would definitely suggest creating a separate email account for your survey taking. That way you’re personal account won’t be getting extra emails.
1. Sign up. Just for signing up you receive $1
2. “Check in” everyday. Checking in earns you 3 cents a day. And all that is required of you is to log into the site and press the “Check in button” If you sign in everyday they’ll give you an extra 50 cents
3. At the top of the screen there is a search bar with “search the web and earn cash” written in it. Just search for a few terms just like you were using google and they will pay you 1 cent per search. You can do this 10 times per day.
4. There are a bunch of different tabs with different types of offers and surveys. Personally I make the most off of the”bonus survey” tab second to that are the surveys found in “offers” but the real money comes from referrals.
So when you sign up you’re given a refferal link. For every new member that you refer to Cashcrate you earn 20% of everything they make and 10% of what their referrals make. AND when a referral makes their first $10 you earn a $3.00 bonus! Seriously the possibilities are endless. Last month I earned $30.00 off ONE of my referrals. So just imagine if you refer bunches of people. You literally get paid to do absolutely nothing!

If you have some extra time or just want to make some extra cash every month I definitely recommend trying this method. I honestly use it myself and it really does pay. I’m hoping to put a little more time into cash crate and seeing how much more I can get out of it.
Here is the check I received this month!
