Earn Money While Christmas Shopping

earnmoneyshopping
If you aren’t taking advantage of reward programs, then you are missing out on free money. I don’t mean doing offers where you have to pay like trials, but just for doing the things you already do like shopping or reading emails. You can do those offers especially if it’s for something you will use. I earn money for Christmas shopping.

I have taken advantage of deals where I wanted to try a new service and then I earned points on top of it like Netflix. Many banks have reward programs on their checking accounts and credit cards. I bank with Capital One and earn over 10,000-20,000 points yearly for banking. Some cable companies are offering reward programs. I have a Charter bundle package and I also earn points with their reward program. I don’t know if all cable or phone companies offer reward programs. I would check and most are free to sign-up.

I’m part of several reward programs like My Points, Big Crumbs, and now Ebates. I received a $15 bonus for signing up with Ebates. I had to spend $50 online before Christmas. I already made the requirement since I had certain presents to buy that I could only find online. I love to snag deals online as well as in the stores. I spent $60 yesterday on presents and will receive double rewards since it was Cyber Monday. I also use My Points when shopping and it just depends on who is offering the better deal. I can’t cash out my Ebatessince I just joined. I want to share with you the other rewards I’m getting to use for Christmas shopping. I love using these programs which really helps to lower my Christmas expenses. What are you waiting for and start earning rewards while you shop! I know there are many reward programs available, but these are the ones I have used and know have been around for many years. I am looking into Swagbucks.

  • Charter- $25 gift card and $10 gift card
  • Capital One- $50 gift card, $25 gift card, and $10 gift card
  • My Points- $25 gift card and $10 gift card
  • Grand Total- $155 in rewards= FREE MONEY!

Here Are Some Ways I Earn Extra Money!

How to Earn Extra Money

I want to share a few ways I earn extra money online. You won’t get rich or even make thousands of dollars a day sitting at home not doing anything. What you will do is spend a few minutes on sites clicking, taking surveys, shopping (if you do anyway then why not get rewarded), and also doing offers. It’s spending money for me, plus I earn gift cards that I give as presents, which all helps my budget and stretch those dollars.

Surveys
I spend an hour a day basically on several different sites, and I also take surveys which usually take a few minutes. It depends on how frequently I get surveys, and if I get any higher dollar ones.¬† I do average $40-50/month from surveys. My goal is actually to start generating a small income from this blog. I’ll update more about the earning extra money from my blog in a later¬† post. I have to get enough posts before I can start applying. I am going to list the sites that I do daily. If any of these sites interest you then please use my links to sign-up, and thanks in advance if you do use my links. The ones I need to send you an email so you can join then please contact me at [email protected] asking for an invite to which sites you would like to join. Thanks again.

Pinecone– This is a great site but you have to find a banner which isn’t easy. I don’t know where to find one either.

Your 2 Cents– I like this one as well. The payouts aren’t great but it’s a steady $1-5 and sometimes more depending. Just go to their site http://www.your2cents.com to join and it’s very easy. Their payout is a bit slow and you can only cash out in increments of $5 or more. I have cashed out over $50 so far in less than a year. It does take 6-8 weeks to get a check.

BuzzBack– I have been with them for over 3 years. I get paid $3-5 a survey and sometimes more depending. They used to pay a little faster but I usually get a check within a month. I also get the most surveys with them. They also have cash prize drawings but I never win. I do like them and it’s a good company.

Shopping Sites

Ebates– I love this site for getting back cash on all my online purchases. So far I have earned over $20 back from purchases in the last three months. There is always a special promotion to earn double to triple cash back. They work with hundreds of retailers. Click Here to Sign Up For Ebates

Swagbucks– I recently started using this site. It’s easy to use and there are always bonus codes to earn. You can earn bucks by searching with their search box on a toolbar, watching videos, and taking polls. I already earned enough to cash out for a $5 Amazon gift card in less than one week!

BigCrumbs– So it’s not a Pay to Click site but you can advertise your ebay store and listings there for FREE! Plus if you sign-up as a Crumb Earner then you will get a % of all your referral’s purchases plus whoever they sign up for up to 5 generations. You won’t get back as much from your own purchases but it’s still a great way to get back money from certain retailers. It’s all listed on the site. Click Here to Sign Up for BigCrumbs

MyPoints– I have been using this site the longest. I signed up over 10 years ago and still love them. I get gift certificates for many stores and they also have paid emails to read, cash offers (sign up for a service), purchases thru certain retailers, surveys and more! They are very reputable and have a great turn around time on mailing the gc’s. I usually get mine within a week or two. Unfortunately they make the referral process harder and the only way for me to do it is I need the email address you wish to use. I highly suggest using one you don’t mind getting lots of email.

Inbox Dollars– I just joined this month and I already have $20 in my account. They give you $5 just for joining and there are many ways to earn more dollars. There are cash offers (signing for services and such), shopping, games (you have to fund with actual money), surveys and reading emails. You only get 2 cents for each email but I have read over 60 emails this month already so it adds up very quickly. I did an offer but most of my points are coming from free sign-ups and surveys. You need $30 to cash out and they do take out $3 so you get a net $27 but once you get your first $30 then you become gold. That is completely free and you get more offers, higher points and some other perks. It’s been very easy so far and I really enjoy it.

Sunshine Rewards– This one takes longer unless you do a lot of online shopping which I don’t. There aren’t many clicks on this one so it’s taking me a lot longer. I’m going to look at this site harder and what is neat is that you can opt to get your payments in Disney Dollars! It is a good site and the forums are very helpful.

BoomerTowne– I just joined 2 weeks ago and already have over 6,000 points. You can cash out at 12,500 points for a $25 GC to Target or Best Buy or get more points for a Visa Card and other great prizes like a WII! It’s very easy to earn points and if you max out daily which is 1,500 points then you could earn an average of $45,000 points! You could get 3 $25 Target or Best Buy GC’s. I have been earning about 1,000 points a day (some days I slack or forget to log on) until I realized how easy it was to get the points. Now I make a point of logging on daily. You get points for requesting friends, accepting friends, chatting in chat rooms, discussion boards, rating jokes or tips, clicking on articles, and so so much more. Unfortunately it’s another one that I can only send referrals thru email. So if interested then please send me an email to [email protected] with your first name and the email you want to use to sign up. Sorry for the inconvienance. They never paid so I am taking them off but wanted everyone to still see they are not legit!

Those are the ones I do most often and daily. I did quite a few programs over the years but either they took too long to pay or the deals were too sparse. I am constantly adding new ones so I will add more to the blog as I do them. Below are the survey sites I faithfully get surveys for which is at least twice a month or more. It just depends.

So what are your favorite reward and survey programs? I am always looking for good dependable sites so comment with your referral link if you wish for me to sign up. I can only sign up for sites I haven’t listed here.
