How I Make A Few Extra Bucks Online

I participate in a variety of online buck making programs and today I want to share a few of them with you. Please keep in mind that these may be affiliate links and you may be helping me out if you decide to sign up! There are a few types of sites out there – earn by clicking, searching, shopping, surveys…and here are my favorite of each type.

1. For earning per clicks, I love My Points. I’ve been a member of My Points for years – since I was in college actually – and over those years I’ve earned lots and lots of gift cards. You can earn points for a variety of things such as shopping, surveys, etc, but I’ve earned all my points from clicking on emails that give approximately 5 points per click. Like I said I’ve been a member for years, but I’ve found that the points do add up. I currently have 4,284 points and a $10 Amazon gift card is worth 1,700 points! Guess I’d better cash in some points, huh!

Search & Win

2. I earn via searching through SwagBucks. I have earned approximately $135 in Amazon gift cards using SwagBucks. I have been a member for just over 2 years and if I spent time doing a lot of their earning options I could have made even more money. I installed their search toolbar and anytime I search for something online, I use their search engine, which works just like Google. I earn points for searches and also for various codes that they release.

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

3. When I shop online, I earn through EBates. I joined Ebates in 2008 but didn’t start earning with them until last year. When I shop online I click through from Ebates before I check out and then I get money back through Ebates. I have earned $26.81 total.

4. I have two favorite survey sites. I used to belong to many more but I find the most worthy sites are E-Poll and esearch. Through E-Poll I have earned $15 in Dunkin Donuts Gift Cards, $5 in Amazon gift cards, and $65 through PayPal. I have been a member for 4 years, but the points add up fast. The difference with esearch is that you get paid for each individual survey you qualify for. They vary from about $1.50-$5 per survey. I don’t have a way to tell you how much I have earned through them but I know I have qualified for a good amount and been paid for all of them.

5. For a unique and fun experience, try Crowdtap! I have never been a member of another site like this one. You earn points by answering questions, completing missions, and even sampling products. I joined 4 months ago and have already earned $10 to Amazon, plus a free screening of Hotel Transylvania to review. It is fun and easy to earn points and I’m very happy so far!

I hope you are interested in some of these programs. If you do join, let me know!

I also use BzzAgent and have received most of the things I have gotten from there. I never seem to qualify for anything through Crowdtap. I know several people that use swagbucks and ebates and love them. I usually buy things through Discover and/or U Promise.

BTW, I also earn money on Bing by using their search engine everyday. I've earned $60 in Amazon gift cards in about 6 months time. You can sign up using my referral link if you're interested: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9778718&rrid=_86398baa-3eec-cd23-52b9-4ff373a83d0

Hi Dara! Just hopped over to your blog and saw you live in Kansas! My family and my husbands family are all in KC and we were both born and raised there. Hope you love it as much as we did.... we can't WAIT to get back someday!

Also wanted to let you know that I'm hosting a Stella and Dot giveaway tomorrow (my first ever!) and I hope you'll stop by. I can always use another mommy follower who can give me advice! :)

I'm just starting to discover all the ways that there are to make a little money online. It sounds like you've really made use of a lot of opportunities! I just decided to put Google adsense on my blog two months ago, and so far it says I'm made $16. They don't pay till you reach 100, but since that was only two months ago, it looks like at least it's possible to reach 100 dollars someday! For doing nothing, that's not bad! :P

I clicked the crowdtap link and it took me away from your page. And I don't really like sharing my facebook information. I wish there were a way for me to explore this site by just joining! I also love mypoints and swagbucks! I enjoy bzzagent too and look forward to their campaigns.
