Extra Money I Made In September

This month went by super fast. Here we go!

Swagbucks (Get paid to take surveys, do offers, run videos on their apps, etc.)  -  $100.00 (All I do is run the apps every day, almost completely passive income.)
Paid View Point (Get paid to take small polls.)  -  $15.03
Quickrewards.net (Get paid to take surveys, click ads, etc.)  -  $0.53 (No minimum cashout.)
Pinecone Research (Get $3 for every survey you take.)  -  $21.00
Qmee (A browser extension that pays you to search.)  -  $0.39 (No minimum cashout.)
Social Spark (Pays you to do sponsored blog posts. Is shutting down soon.)  -  $18.96 (This was from a referral.)
Erlibird (A site that pays you to provide feedback on new websites and apps.)  -  $3.58

So the total amount I made this month was $159.49. Not bad at all. =)

Amazon gift cards
HitPredictor (Get prizes for rating music.)  -  $5.00 Amazon credit
Bing Rewards (Get points for using Bing.com.)  -  $3.00 Amazon credit
InstaGC (Get paid to click ads, sign up for offers, etc.) - $3.00 Amazon credit
Perk TV (Get paid to run videos on their app.)  -  $25.00 Amazon credit (See more about this below.)
App Optix (An app that runs in the background on your smartphone.)  -  $10.00 Amazon credit
Media Insiders Panel (Another app that runs in the background on your phone.)  -  $5.00 Amazon credit

The total amount I got in Amazon credit came to $51.00.

Google Play Store Credit
Google rewards app (Pays you to take small surveys.)  -  $2.02 Google play credit

So I'm still really loving swagbucks and perk. =) My earnings with perk got cut way down though for a few reasons...
1. The popup they have now that asks "are you still watching?" (That is a real pain but it hasn't hurt me too much, at least I don't think it has.)
2. My tablet died on me so I had one less device for most of the month until I bought a cheap android phone from Amazon but it took forever to get here and...
3. I have the worst internet provider in the world and the internet (and phone and TV which I also get through them) has been going out for HOURS at a time SEVERAL times a day SEVERAL days a week (sometimes more). If you live in Southern WV and you can avoid it, DO NOT get service from Shentel. If you don't believe me, look up their Facebook page and check out their (as of writing this) 91 ONE STAR REVIEWS. They also have horrible customer service but I digress...

Anyway, I got myself a new tablet (a cheap one for $45) but I didn't get it till almost the end of the month, so we'll see how having it (a total of 4 devices now) will help me with perk. Hopefully my ISP will get their crap together which would help A LOT, obviously. Oh well, we'll see how things go...

Get Paid to Test Websites with Erlibird

So I came across this site called Erlibird a while back that helps connect new websites with people that are interested in checking them out and providing useful feedback. Basically you sign up and fill out your profile and when they have a focus group that matches your interests they'll send you an invitation to join a focus group. There are only so many spots for these focus groups so you have to respond as soon as you can. You can make anywhere from $5 - $15 but it seems like most people have been making about $5. However, there is a 4% withdrawal fee (minimum of $1.00). And then paypal takes a fee too apparently so when I cashed out my $5.00 balance the other day I only ended up with $3.58.


So far I've only done one focus group so my experience with Erlibird is pretty limited. At first I was worried it might be a scam because after providing my feedback it said estimated payment date was Sept. 12th but the money didn't show up until several days after the 12th. I know they said "estimated" but still, that kinda worried me. But other than that I have had a pretty good experience with the site so far.

If you're interested in joining Erlibird just click here to use my referral link or you can always just go to Erlibird.com.

Extra Money I Made Online In August

These summer months just fly by. I can't believe it's almost September already.

Swagbucks (Get paid to run videos on their apps, do surveys, etc.)  -  $50.00
Yahoo Contributor Network (Shutting down soon.)  -  $2.15
Zazzle (Passive income from selling your designs on t-shirts and other items.)  -  $5.75
PostLoop (Get paid to post on forums.)  -  $10.43
Pinecone Research ($3 for every survey you take.)  -  $18.00
mTurk (Micro jobs.)  -  $3.25
Qmee (A browser extension that pays you to search.)  -  $0.49
EnrollApp.com (Get paid to answer small surveys about websites.)  -  $1.26

So I made a total of $91.33 this month.

Amazon Gift Cards
Hit Predictor (Get prizes for rating music)  -  $5.00 Amazon
InstaGC (Get paid to click ads, do surveys, etc.)  -  $2.00 Amazon
Perk TV (App that pays you to play videos, pretty much completely passive.)  -  $50.00 Amazon (Running on 3 devices.)
Media Insiders Panel (An app that runs in the background on your smart phone.)  -  $14.00 Amazon

I made a total of $71.00 in Amazon credit.

Google Play Store credit
Google rewards app (Pays you to take small surveys.)  -  $1.57 google play credit

The swagbucks app and Perk TV remain my favorite ways to earn right now. But one of my devices (the tablet) messed up. Basically the power button has just worn out to the point it doesn't work anymore so now I can't get it to turn on. I knew this was coming (I've been having issues with it) so I'm down to two devices for a while which really sucks. I'm going to see if my boyfriend can fix it. Hopefully he can. If not I'll just have to buy a cheap phone or something because I really like getting $50 in amazon credit in a month!

In other news...I made a new hub on hubpages about The Lost World Caverns in Lewisburg, WV. My boyfriend and I went up there earlier in May and we really enjoyed it. I'm sure it won't stay "featured" for long since it isn't really the kind of thing people search for, but it's there for now. I'm trying to get back into writing on there but it's so hard to write the kind of stuff I'm interested in AND the kind of stuff other people are interested in. Oh well...

On top of that, I finally added two new items to my Zazzle store. Here they are. One I just call "Tragic Love" because I'm original like that lol....and the other is a slightly altered image from the 1902 film "Le Voyage Dans la Lune" or "A Trip to the Moon".

Tragic Love items are available for sale here.

"A Trip to the Moon" items are available for sale here.

Zazzle Payment Proof

Zazzle is a site I've been using a while. If you aren't familiar with how it works, basically you upload your art and photos to the site and sell them on t-shirts, posters, binders, etc. (basically they have just about anything you could want). They provide the actual items and you mark the price up a little and that is how much you make in profit. Anyway, I've never made much money from the site (but I haven't done much as far as promoting my stuff goes) and I usually just use my earnings to buy stuff on the site) but I recently cashed out so technically this makes my first actual paypal payment from them. Normally they don't pay you until you have at least $50.00 in your account (for a paypal payment) or $100.00 (for a check) but you can cash out sooner than that but they charge you $2.50 out of your earnings. 


My Phoenix stuff continues to be my best seller.
Sadly my Panda ain't gettin' no love. Come on ya'll, show him some love. lol

If you'd like to see the rest of my stuff my store is Candy Kerosene and I even have a blog for it even though it hasn't been updated in forever.

Extra Money I Made In July

I'm going to be busy the next few days so I'm going to go ahead and publish this a bit early. I wrote last month's post early too but I forgot to actually publish it which is why it was so late! lol....so lets get to it...

Swagbucks (Get paid to run videos on their apps, do surveys, etc.)  -  $75.00 (This was pretty much totally passive for me, see below.)
PostLoop (Get paid to post on forums.)  -  $10.88
QuickRewards.net (Get paid to take surveys, cash back on shopping, etc.)  -  $0.11 (No minimum cash out.)
Pinecone Research (Get $3 for every survey you take.)  -  $12.00
Qmee (Browser extension that pays you to search.)  -  $1.90 (No minimum cash out.)
Social Spark (Get paid to write sponsored blog posts. Sadly it's going to shut down soon.)  -  $32.20

So this month I made $132.09.

Amazon gift cards
Bing rewards (Bing.com will reward you for using their search engine.)  -  $3.00
InstaGC (Get paid to click ads, do surveys, etc.)  -  $2.00
Perk TV app (Get paid to run videos with their app. Completely passive income.)  -  $15.00
Media Insiders Panel App (An app that runs in the background on your phone.)  -  $5.00

I made $23.00 in Amazon gift cards. =)

Google Play Store Credit
Google Rewards (A survey app that pays for taking small surveys.)  -  $0.97 Google Play store credit

Swagbucks and PerkTV are my two favorite ways to earn right now. Swagbucks now has 4 apps you can use to earn and they all work the same. The first two have been around for a while, SBTV and EntertaiNow. But now they also have Sportly.tv and MovieCli.ps. They run pretty much completely by themselves except every now and then they will get stuck on an ad or something and you'll have to tap out of it but other than that you can let them run while you're doing something else. I love it. You only get $1-$2 a day (from all the apps combined, depending on how many points they're allowing that day) but it all adds up. I made $75 this month. If you don't need $75 I'll gladly take it off your hands! :D

After I hit my point limit on all the Swagbucks apps I start running the Perk TV apps. I've complained about their app in the past but they've improved it a lot and it's been running much better lately. You can get paypal cash but it costs a lot more points and I'm very impatient so I've just been getting the amazon cards. You can run the app on up to 5 devices at a time and 24/7 if you want. I already had a phone and tablet but I went ahead and bought one another phone (a Kyocera Hydro from Boost Mobile) on Amazon for about $34. If you decide to buy any devices just to run the perktv app on I wouldn't get anything really expensive because hours and hours of playing videos will wear it out eventually anyway and as with any online company Perk.com could go up in smoke overnight. You never want to invest too much into things like this because you just never know. But so far things are going pretty good. =)
