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. =)

Extra Money I Made Online In June

It's that time again. I have been having a great summer so far! I have been slacking off because I've been spending so much time outdoors hiking and swimming and stuff. I hope you guys are having a great summer too. But lets jump right in....

Swagbucks (Get paid to watch videos on their app, do surveys on their site, etc.)  -  $25.00 (This is mostly passive income. See below.)
Yahoo Contributor Network (Get paid for writing articles.)  -  $2.92 (This is passive income for me for a handful of articles.)
PostLoop (Get paid to post on forums.)  -  $5.16
Jingit (Get paid to watch video ads.)  -  $0.30
Quickrewards.net (Get paid to take surveys, etc. No minimum cashout.)  -  $0.16
Pinecone Research (Get $3 for every survey you do.)  -  $12.00
mTurk (Do small tasks or micro jobs.)  -  $2.73
Qmee (A browser extension that pays you to search. No minimum cashout.)  -  $1.22
Sponsored Tweets (Get paid to tweet ads. Will be shutting down soon.)  -  $3.00
Social Spark (Get paid to blog, also shutting down soon.)  -  $28.53
Innopoll.com (Get paid to take surveys.)  -  $2.00

So I made $83.02 this month. Could have done better but like I said, it's summer and I've been having too much fun. =)

Amazon gift cards
mPoints (A rewards program used by several apps.)  -  $2.00 amazon
Perk (Get paid to run videos on your smart phone or tablet.)  -  $10.00 amazon
AppOptix (An app you run in the background on your phone.)  -  $10.00 amazon

So I made $22.00 in amazon gift cards. Not too shabby!

Google play store credit
Google Rewards App (Pays you to take small surveys.)  -  $1.14 Google credit

So I'm pleased to say that Perk has really improved their PerkTV app! I don't know what they did but it's finally running really well on both my phone and tablet. It isn't freezing and getting stuck on ads constantly. Let's just hope this lasts. I still don't trust it enough to run out and buy another device to start "farming" as other people are...but maybe later if things keep going well.

Swagbucks is still awesome! Still my best and easiest earner. I only do the apps and it's pretty much completely passive except for keeping an eye on the apps every so often to make sure they haven't gotten stuck on an ad or something. But other than that it's the easiest money I've ever made.

The App Optix app is really great. I downloaded it a while back and completely forgot about it. It just runs in the background and gathers info about your phone (but nothing personal) and gives you points and once you have 300 you get a $10 amazon gift card.

Review of Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen

So I recently got to try out Coppertone ClearlySheer for Sunny Days sunscreen through BzzAgent. If you aren't familiar with BzzAgent, they send you products to try for free and all you have to do is give your honest opinion about them.

So anyway, I really couldn't have gotten this kit at a better time. I've been making it a point to spend more time outside cause every summer I tell myself I'm going to do just that and I never do. But this summer I've been swimming and hiking and stuff and it's been a lot of fun. So anyway, I've been using this stuff just about every day since I got it.

It says it won't cause breakouts and I have to say that seems to be true. I have always had horrible issues with acne but so far I haven't had any issues with breakouts since I've been using this stuff. I also love that it doesn't feel nasty and greasy and it is easily absorbed by the skin.

I've also always hated the smell of sunscreen. I can't say this stuff doesn't have a sunscreen smell to it at all, but it smells much better than your typical sunscreen so that's pretty awesome. 

And most important of all, it works. It's SPF 30 and I haven't gotten sunburned once! =) Just remember to reapply every 80 minutes or after swimming.

Have any of you tried this sunscreen yet? If so what do you think of it?

Swagbucks (Get paid to watch videos on their apps, do surveys, etc.)  -  $25.00 (The apps are pretty much completely passive.)
Yahoo Contributor Network (Get paid for writing articles.)  -  $2.41 (This is residual for a handful of articles.)

PostLoop (Get paid to post on forums.)  -  $8.19
Jingit (Get paid to watch video ads.)  -  $0.15

Qmee (A browser extension that pays you to search. No minimum cash out.)  -  $0.29
PaidViewPoint (Get paid to take small polls.)  -  $15.20

So I made a total of $108.35. Not too shabby. =) 

Amazon gift cards
mPoints (A rewards program used by several different apps.)  -  $3.00
InstaGC (Get paid to sign up for offers, do surveys, etc.)  -  $1.00

Google Play Credit
Google Rewards app (Get paid to answer small polls.)  -  $1.09

Stuff
BzzAgent - Special K bites, Coppertone sunscreen, Chips from Kroger's (all to be reviewed soon!)
Influenster - Tons of stuff that I'm not gonna list again here but it's in my last post. =)

So I've had an account with Hubpages for years and at one point I had about 20 articles there and was making about $5 a month which wasn't too bad consider that I hadn't put much effort into it. But then all the google changes happened and things went downhill. I deleted some of my articles (now I'm down to about 11) and kept saying I'd work on my account but I haven't done anything so far but I continued to earn about $0.50 a month and after having that account for a few years (I don't even know how long lol) I finally hit $50 and got my first payment.

My Influenster Box

So if you aren't familiar with Influenster, it's similar to BzzAgent and Smiley360. You sign up and if they have a mission that matches your interests they'll send you some stuff to try out. I just got a huge box of stuff from Influenster just in time for summer. =)

I got a packet of Blue Diamond Blueberry flavored Almonds which I didn't even know where a thing! They were absolutely delicious. They're rich in vitamin E and a whole packet is only 230 calories. I've been trying to eat healthier so these couldn't have come at a better time.

I also got three packets of The Vitamin Shoppe Next Step Fit N' Full Shake meal replacement shakes. I got 3 flavors (fresh berries, Swiss chocolate, and French vanilla). They have 14 grams of protein per serving, 5 grams of fiber and tons of vitamins and minerals too. I didn't expect them to be very good cause lets face it, protein shakes usually taste like dirt but these are actually really good. Especially the chocolate one. =)

They also sent me a 20 oz JAXX BAP free shaker cup to mix it all up in. This thing is pretty cool. And I love that it's easy to clean and even comes with this neat little thing in it to help keep everything mixed up.

And some Profoot Triad Orthotic shoe inserts. I'm really glad I got these. I've been planning to get out and walk more this summer but I have flat feet but it hadn't even occurred to be to get some inserts. My dad and I have been gathering firewood (we try to gather a little each day up until the fall so we'll have plenty for winter) and I've been using these inserts the last few days and I've noticed my feet have felt a lot better!

And they sent a Profoot Pedi-rock to help remove the rough skin and calluses from my feet so my feet will look nice while I'm hanging out at the pool. This thing actually works really well and when you're done with it just rinse it off, let it air dry and you're good to go. =)

And my favorite item yet...a bottle of Aqua Spa Lavender and Chamomile body creme. This lotion feels and smells amazing. It is really thick (in a good way) and not at all greasy like so many lotions are. I've been using this stuff like crazy.

This box was awesome and had a ton of awesome stuff in it to help me enjoy summer. I'm so glad they sent me one!

(Disclaimer:  I got to try all these things for free in exchange for giving my opinions of them. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.)
