How much can you make?

How much you make depends on how much time you put in. You can make as little as a dollar a day with about an hour of lackadaisical work adding up to $300+ over the course of a year. Or if you are more serious, you could possibly make $10,000 a year with about 7 hours of hard work put in per a day. Now lets say you go Penny Hoarder style and get referral links of your own and a following... in that case you could making a living off passive income. For example Fanduel, says you can make 6 figures off their referral program alone! Below I will discuss some of the straightforward sites that have not steered me wrong during my time working online. I recommend getting them all to maximize your profit.

Check, check, check til you get a check!

This is the site I have made the most money on. I've had success with surveys, the daily poll, watching videos, signups, downloads, purchases, referrals & so on. This one is legit, with such a cool name how could it not be? I use my swagbucks to redeem for Amazon gift cards.

Sounds good & makes cents!

On this site all I do is review music. They do offer some products for review as well but I have not participated in that yet. Besides the reviews, you can refer people for a bonus. As for the music, it pays out pretty well and the pay gets higher as your reviews get better or as time goes on. This one can be fun too if you like music, now who doesn't like music? Another great thing is it pays right to your Paypal account. This site actually stacks up the money faster then the ladder but you do have to pay attention.

The search for cash is easy on these sites!

Bing Rewards & Perk

The next two sites I will group together as I use them in a similar manner. Bing Rewards is simply that it rewards you for making searches through the Bing search engine. You can refer your friends to this one as well but don't expect 6 figures. All in all passive income, i'll take it.

Last but not least is Perk. This site is also a mobile app like all the sites above except Slicethepie. I run videos in the background while I surf the web and get paid for that. Perk also has a browser that rewards similar to Bing for searches. In addition to that, Perk has a scratcher app & phone unlock screen that may surprise you when you get paid as they are almost too easy to use.
