My husband thinks I have gone ‘good deal crazy’ lately. We have gotten a bunch of free stuff lately like a tiny digital camera, a jump drive, 6 boxes of Cheese Nips, fast food, and more. I have been looking around trying to get more good deals and I have found a bunch of ‘free after rebate’ goodies, too. My new kick is Cash Crate.
I have been trying out this Cash Crate thing for a short while. It seems like an easy way to make a little cash so for a short time each day I have been filling out and submitting surveys. Sounded easy and, surprisingly, it is.
There have been a few things that I have gone to fill out that have turned out to be, let’s say, not what they started out as. That is okay though. I just close the window and move on to another survey. My husband always tries to do those ‘complete an offer’ things and he always gets frustrated when he gets to the end and finds out that he actually has to spend money to get something ‘free’. With Cash Crate you can pick the surveys you want to complete – they tell you up front if you will need a credit card or if it will cost you anything. Still, I always recommend that you READ THE FINE PRINT with every offer.
I have read up on it a bit and found that most people do receive their checks at the end of the month like they are supposed to. I haven’t been doing it long enough to receive a check but I am confident that I will.
There is a lot of money to be made here. I noticed that some offers that you have to sign up for, but can cancel after 14 or 30 days or something give a real high payout. I guess if you are really organized and can remember to cancel those things you can make MUCH money for very little effort. I do not have a very good memory so I am not going to do any of these ‘trial’ programs although some of them look cool.
You do have to give our your phone number for some of these but all my spam calls still come from only one place, Bank Of America. I really don’t like them. Other than that we don’t get many telemarketing calls.
To sum up my ramblings:
- easy money
- low payout minimum ($10)
- you can pick your type of surveys
- only a small amount of time involved
- very little effort
- no credit card required for most surveys
- a few of the surveys I have taken turned out to be scammish
- higher paying offers may require a credit card
- higher paying offers sometimes require ‘trial’ products or services that will need to be canceled if you don’t want to loose your money.
- lost of spam! (we use a special email address for stuff like this so our regular email stays spam-free)
