So I'm still loving the Swagbucks apps. They vary the amount you can get each day...for a while it went down to about 80 and now for the past few days it's been back up to 100 swagbucks. I don't know how long that will last but if you get the $25 paypal option like I do, then that makes each point worth a penny. The apps are SO easy to run and while they don't make you a ton of money, they're pretty much completely passive.

On the other hand, the PerkTV app from Perk.com hasn't been working out as well as I was expecting. It is supposed to work the same way as the Swagbucks apps but it has A TON of problems. Here are some of the problems I've been having. (Other people may not have these problems at all so I recommend seeing what other people have to say too.)

1. Gets frozen or "stuck" on ads constantly. Which means you have to check it every 5 minutes or so which makes it not passive at all and incredibly annoying.
2. Sometimes videos don't credit at all.
3. This is also true for the videos they have on their actual site (not the app) that are supposed to pay 10 points per video. They credit for me about half the time. I recommend refreshing the page after you watch a video to see if the other videos are still there. Most of the time they will all disappear. I assume this means that these are videos that won't credit for you if you watch them.
4. If you don't have the ABSOLUTE latest version of the app, none of your videos will credit. This wouldn't be so bad but half the time it won't even notify you of an update BUT they tend to update the freaking thing every time I turn around. So far none of these updates have fixed any of the issues I just mentioned.

But the good thing is that so far they are paying people so they don't seem to be a scam or anything. Maybe I'm just the weirdo having these problems and everyone else is doing fine? Who knows? lol But I'm currently at about 2,500 points and after I reach 5,000 and cash out I am seriously considering not using it anymore. Yes, these problems make it THAT annoying.

And neobux....for a while I was trying out their rented referral program to see if I could build my way up to some decent passive income but it didn't work out well at all and basically I just got frustrated and quit. The site isn't a scam at all or anything, but there are tons of "paid to click" sites out there and I'm not really looking for that these days. I was interested in neobux because of the possibility of passive income but I just couldn't seem to get it to work for me. Their rented referral program is weird and complicated and I just didn't like it.

And Hubpages! =) I rarely talk about Hubpages on here because it's a residual income writing website and I've used it a little on and off for a few years now but I've never gotten a payment yet...but I finally reached $50 this month which means I should be paid sometime next month so yay me! This is my profile is anyone wants to see it. I plan on trying to write more there but it's hard to find the time and get motivated, but I'm working on it.
