This is one of the best paid to sites I have encountered. They have a seemingly high payout amount, $25, but it is really easy to get your earnings up there. You can earn by doing surveys, trials, clicks, and e-mails. Oh, and their e-mails really only do come once per day, so you won't get tons of junk mail from them. I am really liking this site, and will update you when I have a check from them in hand!

I absolutely love MyPoints. I have been a member for more than a decade. Over the years I have not been overly active as far as signing up for offers, mostly just clicking on e-mails, and I usually get a $25 gift card every six months or so. I could definitely earn a ton more if I signed up for trials or used the referral program. My husband recently signed up(don't ask me if multiple accounts from the same ISP are okay, if he gets my account canceled I am going to kill him), and in under a month he earned enough points to get a $25 GameStop gift card! So I definitely recommend Mypoints for some good gift cards!

I have not been a member long enough to cash out, but this seems like a pretty cool site so far. Basically, you just log in every couple of days, view some ads, and make $.02 per ad. The minimum cash out is $30, which is going to take a while, but it is pretty easy and requires virtually no effort or money from you, so why not? They do get you started with a free $10 in your account, too. I will let you know when I hit the cashout threshold how long they take to get you the money. Here's the link.


So far, I am not a huge fan of ZoomPanel. I did just join on 2/16, so it has not been long enough to tell you definitively that it is a waste of time, but...they flood my e-mail with surveys, most of which I do not qualify for. So far I only have 450 points, which will get me nada. The lowest priced rewards are 1,000 points, and they are kind of crapola. A couple of books or 10 song downloads for a company I have never heard of. I have belonged to several other survey sites which add up points much more quickly for more prizes that I actually want. I will let you know if things start to turn around with them, but as of right now I would have to give them a big thumbs down. If you do, however, want to give them a shot, here is the link. www

Lightspeed Consumer Panel

Lightspeed Consumer Panel is one survey site that I definitely recommend. I joined about two months ago, and I am not really super active with them. But today I just got $10 in CVS gift cards in the mail from them! I cashed these out on 2/23 and received them today 3/22, so about average turnaround time. I did 7 surveys to earn these. Most of their surveys are not too long, and they give you an estimated completion time for each. Here's where to sign up!


I wanted to let everyone know about my experience with BidCactus. When I search for it online, all I can find are bad reviews about how it is a scam and "bots" are doing all the bidding. I have to tell you that is far from the truth. Basically, the way it works is one purchases a "bid pack", which is just paying money for a certain amount of chances to bid. I purchased the 50 pack, but you can buy as few as 25 for $.75 per bid. You then use those bids to buy products at deeply discounted prices. I bought them in order to bid on a T.V., but I lost. I then used my remaining bids to try for a $50 Petsmart gift card, which I won. After all was said and done, purchasing the bid pack and shipping, I spent about $43 for a $50 card. Not too bad. Sure, that wasn't what I really wanted and probably would have spent that money elsewhere, but that's not the point. You definitely can win, and it is not a scam. So, if you have some money that you aren't too attached to, I would definitely recommend BidCactus. There are some high value products to be had at very small prices, and you could definitely make some money there by reselling the stuff on e-bay.
