$118 In March, looking back at a Busy March

Not bad, for the month of March. First of all let me start by saying that this was probably the busiest month when it came to the amount of payments that I have received, from different sites. I received payments from EVERYONE. Valued Opinions, Opinion Outpost, Surveyhead, CashCrate, and even the all new Opinion Place that I recently joined.

I am pleased with all of the recent progress. Things seem to be coming along nicely, and I am still looking around for one or more new ways to make money online. I am an Amazon Prime member, and I am also a PayPal user, so I always prefer these methods over every other payment types as they also come the most fastest as well. I did my thing on CashCrate this month and Made $24 which is great though I plan on doing bigger things there soon, as I said before the amount you can make on CashCrate is pretty high it can range from anywhere to $20 a month to as much as $2000, which there are members that do indeed make that much, if you go to the site, you can check on there all new Payment Wall.

Surveyhead was $25, but like always they took quite a while to email the Gift card (3 weeks). On Opinion Outpost however, I made $35 this month. Not too bad considering I am already back at $20. That is the huge advantage that Opinion Outpost has over Surveyhead though, the fact that the survey confirms immediately, and the Gift cards are available right away, it makes an automatic code for you to use, really cool stuff. REMEMBER though, for those that join, any of these survey sites you have to do profiles, if you do not do profiles the companies do not know what kind of surveys to send you and you will not get surveys, so remember PROFILES! Valued Opinions I got the $20 gift card and it took a couple of days to get it, as there is an automatic Gift card system (like Opinion Outpost), however for some reason all of the Amazon Gift cards were already claimed, so you typically have to wait some time for them to load back more codes in the system. So yes, a very busy month with my normal sites.

However, as seen in one of the pictures, I was paid by Opinion Place already (Owned by AOL). They have a very interesting system once you qualify for a survey you are able to do it from beginning to the end without worrying that you will be booted off during the survey. Also, there is some limitations on the site, you can ONLY do 2 surveys a week which is not that bad, however I could see why this would bother other people. So you basically cannot do a survey until the 7 days is up. However, one thing I like is that they show you straight up how much money you are going to make for a survey before hand. I have already taken some $4 surveys and received PayPal credit about 3 weeks after taking the survey. It is good and I enjoy it, as I have a PayPal debit card and the extra cash on the sides come in handy.

It was a great month for me, and I look forward to new adventures this month.....bring on May! Hope everyone had a pleasant weekend!

My highest paying survey......$12

Here it is, the highest I have ever made for one individual survey, a whopping $12. Four Surveys normally equal $12 so it just goes to show you how varied each and every survey that you take are.

This survey that I took however, was an IT related survey and 95% of the people that take this survey probably would not have qualified for it. Lucky I am in the IT field, and it asked about things such as Servers, and application software, lucky I have an idea of those things. The purpose of this post is really to showcase how far surveys have come. When surveys first started showing up on the internet you were not getting more the $1 or $2 for them. Now there are surveys that pay as much as $20 though I have never run into them.

Companies need feedback on what users think about there products, and that is where we come in. We are the ones who will not only lead the future of the products but are the ones who will shape how products are made for a very long time to come. This is why folks it is important to fill out your "profiles" on survey sites, as that tells these companies that offer surveys what you own and what kind of surveys will be in your best interest. If you DO NOT do the profiles you will never receive even one survey. If you look at the image you will see some surveys that credited for 20 cents. These are indeed not surveys, but actually profiles that they give you some money for you to take your time and complete.

If you haven't figured it out yet this site is Surveyhead, and that's the sites interface, as you can clearly see I have already passed $130 on there alone. Of course at Opinion Outpost I am already past the $130 mark. For Valued Opinions I am at the $140 mark. If Surveyhead's surveys did not pend so long I would have already passed $200, but that is a weird choice that they made that is still beyond me. Hope you enjoyed this minor description on how important surveys are both to you and me, and how we will shape the future because of it.

I hope everyone had a great weekend Spring Break for many right now, enjoy it!

$50 more in gift certificates for February! Looking back at the month of February

Hooray! I got $30 from Opinion Outpost, and $20 from Valued Opinions to wrap up the month of February. Not bad, not bad, that means for the month I ended up with $95, which is still OK. This was a short month anyway, and IMReportCard calling it quits also made me lose $20 for this month. Overall, i can't complain. Remember, I think people need to know this, and I will start mentioning it on every post, but in order to get surveys at Opinion Outpost, YOU NEED to do the profiles, as profiles are about you, and let the company know what kind of surveys to send you based on things that you use/like. They do take long to do either, If you do not do the profiles, at all you will NOT get any surveys, this is something that people I know have asked so i figured I would address it.

Cashcrate, I will receive a $25 check this month! I passed the $20 mark, and will be getting the check this month. Very exciting, I will see if I can get anymore this coming month! I love making money at Cashcrate, because the amount can be big or little as long as you put the time and effort into it! I recently took a survey at Surveyhead, and got a WHOPPING $12. That is the most I have ever made for ONE individual survey. Though I assume most people would have a hard time qualifying for the survey as it was an IT related survey. Anyway, it was a good month there is one important thing that everyone should know I have officially joined a new site, the website is called Opinion Place and it is owned by AOL. It a great service, as they are the only site I have run across where you can get money for any survey taken via paypal. You do have to wait up to 4 weeks, however that is fine considering you can get paid from paypal for every survey that is taken and do not have to wait till you reach a cash out amount ( Like Valued Opinions and Surveyhead). I got $5 from them so far and have a receipt of it, once I receive payments I will post about it here.

I hope everyone had a good month, it was pretty cold eh?
