Get paid for Christmas shopping

Get paid for Christmas shopping: Yup, you read that right! You can get PAID to do your Christmas shopping, and it’s easier than you think! Whenever you shop online through cash back shopping sites, you are literally getting paid to shop! There are several sites that will pay you cash back for shopping at online stores. You get a certain percentage of your total purchase back via paypal or check, and the amount of cash back varies from site to site and from store to store. The key is to sign up with all the cash back sites you can and then look to see which one offers the most cash back when shopping online at a particular store. If you take advantage of cash back shopping sites, you will be surprised how quickly the cash back can add up, especially when doing your holiday shopping!

***This post is part of our series***

Here are our favorite cash back shopping sites, all of these sites are 100% free to sign up for and use:

1) – $5 sign up bonus, they automatically pay you via check or paypal when you’ve reached $10 in cash back. Your $5 sign up bonus counts toward your $10 minimum when cashing out. They pay every month around the 20th. We have personally been paid by this site.

2) – $5 sign up bonus, you must request a check or paypal when you’ve reached $10 in cash back. Your $5 sign up bonus counts toward your $10 minimum when cashing out. They pay at the beginning of every month for the previous month. So if you request a check in October, you will be paid in early November. We have personally been paid by this site.

3) – $5 sign up bonus, you get paid after you have $5.01 in cash back in your account. Your $5 sign up bonus counts toward your $5.01 cash out minimum. They automatically pay your cash back every 3 months. We have personally been paid by this site.

4) – $5 sign up bonus. You can cash out when you’ve received $20 in cash back. We signed up for this site a few months ago and have not cashed out yet.

5) – You can sign up as a Crumb Saver or Crumb Earner. Crumb Savers get a higher cash back percentage, but receive less cash back when referring friends. Crumb Earners receive a lower cash back percentage, but earn cash up to 5 referral generations away! (So if you have a lot of friends, I recommend signing up as a Crumb Earner! Otherwise start with Crumb Saver, as you can always switch to Crumb Earner later.) We signed up for this site several months ago and have not cashed out yet.

How we made an extra 1000 dollars last month

How we made extra money for debt:

Several readers have asked us how we scrape up an extra $1000 now and then to put towards principal on debt, so I (“Engineer”) thought I would show you.

For this example, here is how we got $1000 scraped up recently to send towards debt. Some of the payments had been a month or a couple months in the works, so this is not a typical month.

  • $35.50 – Sold books to
  • $13.00 – payment (a couple months in the making)
  • $32.25 – (took two months to get enough to payout)
  • $25.00 – (My favorite survey site, hit the payout this month – For those of you unfamiliar with , you get $5 free via Paypal just to sign up, plus it’s free to sign up. We have lots of readers making $50+ a month on this site.)
  • $227.00 – Overtime money from paychecks
  • $342.60 – Items sold on ebay, this was unusual, happened to have a large item
  • $330.00 – Payment from weekend work on the side
  • =================================
  • $1005.35 – Grand total

This month was an accumulation of a lot of hard work on the side and overtime, but you can see that even just doing simple things like doing a few surveys or all adds up. Some months we are able to scrape up an extra couple hundred just from being frugal… while that doesn’t directly “make money”, it does save money… and at the end of the month when I look at the checking account, it shows up as extra money in the checking account.

Making extra money is not just about one thing/one source, it’s doing many things… little things… that add up.

For example, most months we can count on about 50 dollars extra from surveys, etc, add to that an extra 100 or 150 dollars from being under-budget on utilities and grocery and suddenly there is an extra 200 to pay towards principal. It all adds up.

As they say, a penny saved is a penny earned…

Valued Opinions Survey – $50 surveys & paid product trials!

Valued Opinions Survey site offers paid surveys up to $50 per survey and paid product trials. Right now I am so excited because I just received a survey invitation from Valued Opinions that said the following:

“This survey is a bit different to our regular surveys; when you qualify you will be asked if you would like to test a product that will be sent to you in the mail. In order for us to send the product, you will be asked for your name and contact details during the survey. Once you have tested the product you will then be asked to take part in another survey.”

I have done paid product trials with Valued Opinions before, and they were awesome! You get paid to take an initial survey, then they send you a free product to try, and then you get paid to take another survey at the end! So you get paid for two surveys, and get a FREE product!

  • If you haven’t signed up for Valued Opinions Surveys yet, you really need to try this company. It’s one of my favorites!

Also, you do not have to be a mother with children under age 4 to join this panel. They are looking for all types of panel members, and just particularly recruiting mothers at this time.

Get paid via Paypal to take surveys and complete paid product trials

When I logged into to check my account balance (this is the company that I recently received an invitation to a paid product trial from), I saw that you can now get paid via Paypal. Combine this with the fact that you can cash out as soon as you get $5, and this makes Mindfield Online one of the best survey companies out there!

Mindfield Online has always been quick to pay via check, but this means payments will now come even quicker if you choose Paypal as your payment option!

If you haven’t signed up with Mindfield, you will definitely want to sign up ASAP, as they send out paid survey invitations, AND paid product trial invitations! In some cases, you will get paid to try a product AND complete a survey about it! Sign up for Mindfield Online !

I thought some of you might be interested in seeing my most recent proof of payment from Mindfield Online via Paypal, so here it is, copied/pasted from my Paypal email payment:

McMillion Research just sent you money with PayPal.
