Easy and Legit online money

While I generally focus my hubs on literary and academic issues, I would like to break away from that for this hub and share some ways that I have supplemented my income online for the last decade. As most of you know, there are many scams and to good to be true offers online, I have spent years dredging through legitimate easy ways to make money online. You won't get rich doing it, but I have averaged $25-$100 a month in cash and prizes doing online market research and emails. Most people I know could use an extra $100 a month and since most of these surveys can be done from the comfort of your own home (and often times while wearing only boxers shorts and drinking a hot cup of coffee) the only thing you're really losing is time. I do many of these surveys while watching television. it's a way to get paid a little during my down time. Below are some of the survey and paid e mail companies I have been using and I can vouch for them all as legitimate.

Unfortunately, Hub pages has made me remove all referral links. Please contact me directly and i will send you a link to sign up.

I will be updating these often so please bookmark this page and check back often!

You're not going to get wealthy, but, if you set it up right, you can have a consistent cash flow that you can count on. You can get discounts, essentially by shopping from portal sites and signing up for offers. I also advise, if you start taking a lot of surveys that you set up a separate e mail account for them so your inbox doesn't get flooded and personal e mails lost.

I hope you'll take the time to check them out!

Inbox Dollars

This is an extremely simple program. You get paid 2 cents simply to open an e mail. If you click on the offer and sign up for it, you get additional payment. The site also offers shopping and you get a percentage back in cash for shopping through their site. You also get a ten percent referral fee, for life, and 5 percent of your referrals referrals earnings, for as long as you and your referrals stay active. It has a thirty dollar cash out threshold and a $3 check fee, which is lame, but, after you cash out they put three dollars into your account, so it ends up being a wash. The initial cash out takes six weeks, however, each subsequent cash out takes a week or two. I usually cash out twice a year.

The site also shows your earnings in a detailed manner, so you can see where your money is coming from and, if you link it with your Facebook page, it will automatically show on your wall when you have earned money. The posting is also a referral link which will enable you to earn more cash if someone clicks on the link and signs up.

They have surveys as well, which are hard to qualify for, but the payouts are decent. It's pretty easy money, just be patient on your first cash out. It's free so you risk nothing.

Survey Spot

This was the first survey group I joined, over a decade ago. They send a lot of surveys per week with payouts varying from prize entries to $10. I never take surveys that offer only prize drawings. My time is valuable and I want something guaranteed. However, for each survey you attempt, regardless of completion, you get a prize entry. I have won this a couple of times. Payouts are via Pay Pal and are fairly quick to be processed. It has a ten dollar cash out threshold. Just be wary of any survey invites that say "fun" or "interesting" as these are usually nonpaying surveys. The body of each e mail will tell you how many points each survey is worth and the approximate length each survey will take. Each point is the equivalent of one cent. A survey that pays 250 points is actually paying you $2.50. Survey Spot is reputable but often has low paying and lengthy surveys. Proceed with caution They do not offer any referral rewards.

Unfortunately, Hub pages has made me remove all referral links. Please contact me directly and i will send you a link to sign up.

MyPoints

MyPoints is another company I have been working with for many years and they offer ample and simple ways to earn prizes. Unfortunately, at this time, you cannot earn any cash, but I have earned hundreds of dollars in Amazon.com gift cards and other valuable prizes over the years. This another portal site which offers you points to shop, and each e mail you open earns 5 points. Surveys are offered which generally offer 50 points for completion, but also offer 10 points if you don't qualify to complete. They have a wide variety of prize offerings and I've never had any redemption problems.

The referral system is fairly decent. You get 25 points for each referral that signs up. you also get 10% of their lifetime earnings. For example, if you friend signs up and earns 100 points, you get 25 points when they sign up plus another 10 points from their earnings. This does not affect your friends earnings at all. Plus, when your friend makes their first $20 purchase, you get 750 points (basically, five dollars). It's a very simple program. you can even increase earnings by posting referral links to your Facebook walls.

Send me an e mail and I'll send you a referral link!

SurveySavvy

You're not going to get a lot of surveys from SurveySavvy, but they all offer decent payouts. They're hard to qualify for, but they do not have any cash out thresholds. Survey payouts are instantaneous and, upon cashing out, checks are sent quickly. I'm not sure how much the referrals pay ( I was unable to find this specfic information on the site, though the site does claim to pay for referrals), but they do offer a percentage of direct referrals and for the referrals of referrals, so you have the potential to build a nice bankroll with SurveySavvy. At this time, they only offer checks as a form of payment. I highly recommend SurveySavvy

Unfortunately, Hub pages has made me remove all referral links. Please contact me directly and i will send you a link to sign up.

Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost is a portal survey site. They will send you emails with survey invites, but also offer direct links to surveys via their site. They offer points, with each point being the equivalent of $.10. Opinion Outpost has a five dollar cash out threshold that pays out instantly, with restaurant.com, Amazon.com and prepaid debit cards, and PayPal, as the current payout options. The surveys are of varying lengths, but average 10-25 points per survey, though I've seen some on rare occasions as high as 100. They do offer referral rewards, but it's only a one time payment of $2 once your referral takes their first survey.

They are a good company and I've had nothing but good experiences working with them.

Unfortunately, Hub pages has made me remove all referral links. Please contact me directly and i will send you a link to sign up.

MySurvey

Another portal survey site, they offer a ton of rewards ranging from Amazon.com gift cards to PayPal and everything in between. The cash out thresholds vary by prize, but they offer 5 points for each survey attempted, with varying amounts for completing surveys, but generally at least 75 points, with some as high as 300. Each point is the equivalent of $.01. I cash out from this site monthly and get enough surveys from them that if I only wanted to work with one survey company, MySurvey.com would be my first choice, especially given the diversity of prizes available.

They offer 150 points (one time) for each new referral.

www.mysurvey.com, use the e mail phaedoguy@gmail.com as your referral!

And in Conclusion...

I'm always looking for new ways to make legit money online and there are more companies available then just the few mentioned here. The one's here are ones I can vouch for as legitimate and worthwhile, and it's quite possible I will add more to this article. If you can think of any I may have missed, feel free to send me a link and I'll check them out. I may also have some advice on companies to avoid if you're wondering. I hope you find this helpful!

Hi PDX, I can certainly vouch for MyPoints. I have been with them since 2005. They ARE terrifico !!

Inbox Dollars, I was with them about 5 years ago, acquired enough points to cash out once and they paid. And then did the same again a few months later and they disappeared. Since you bring them up I can only assume they have come back. However, they left a bad taste in my mouth and won't be going back for seconds.

I voted up and useful.

I have been doing things like this a few years, mostly products but a little cash and the products are often full size and sometimes they send me a couple of one product like shampoo, salad dressings etc. I was with MySurvey for a long time and got $10 often and lots of goodies but they cut off the good stuff so I quit them. There are many freebies out there though for people not too good to get them. I shared most of it with people who are.

@ icc: opinion outpost, creation rewards and survey spot all use pay pal.

@ Audrey: I agree. That's very frustrating I've taken enough surveys that I can usually tell right off the bat if I'm going to qualify or not, or, even if I do qualify, if it's the type of questions I like to ask. Companies like Mindspay, Inbox dollars and mypoints all have ways to earn money without taking surveys. There's link sot all these and if you send me a personal e mail, Ill send you personalized links along with links to additional sites.

Martinez and Goy, thatnks for stopping by. I've used my experience to present here with the best online survey companies I can find. None of them have membership fees and most of the time, the surveys let you know how long they'll take, so you're not flying blind. INboxdolalrs and mypoints involve simply opening emails to make a little money. They're worth trying. Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any more questions!

Thanks molo. A couple hundred bucks in cash prizes and other stuff is nice. Most people I know an use that. My ife and I went out for a dinner and movie last week using survey prizes and the nght didn't cost us a dime. Plus, they do lead to the occasional focus grup and/product testing that can pay $50-100 a pop. It's a nice way to supplement income. Let me know if you have any success and please use the links provided if you sign up :-) Cheers

Hi PDXKaraokeGuy great hub and well done for pointing out that these sites are only to make a few bucks on the side.

Hubbers like you are terrific for finding and sharing this type of info.

You have been doing this kind of thing for 10 years so you know what works and what doesn't.

You have collective saved people probably dozens of years of fruitless searching by writing this hub well done voted UP UI

GV and Daniel, thanks for stopping by. As stated in the body of this article, we're not talking about life changing money, we're talking an average of about $100 a month. I've had a lot of bad experiences with survey companies who don't pay and I've decided tro write this article so people looking to gain a little extra money can do so knowing that these particular companies pay what they promise. As a stay at home spouse and freelance writer, this plan works for me, though ti may not work for everyone. Gv, as far your experiencesd with Inbox Dollars, the key is volume. I probly qualify for one survey a week, but really make my money through referrals and through shopping on the site. I also recommend signing up for the free offers. You can always cancel after your account has been credited. Just keep your expectations realistic!

As an internet marketer I have to be skeptical about making money by solving surveys, none the less if it has worked for you I'm glad it did. A very nicely written article - looking forward to reading more and exchanging ideas. Voted up!

I have used a few of these income streams. All to no success at all. Inbox dollars has yet to bring me any real amount of income. The surveys always seem to disqualify me. How much have you made with inbox dollars? What are your secrets or methods used to earn more? I was just wondering how to make more money using your hub. Other than that these are all reliable sources in the means that they do pay. I just need to learn how to make more.
