Three online sites that I've earned from, along with payment proofs. (Second edition)
The second edition.
Last month I wrote an article titled "Three online sites that I've earned from, along with payment proofs". That article can be read here. The goal with that particular article was to inform and show those who may be skeptical, that there are sites where you can legitimately earn from. You definitely won't get rich from most of these sites, but they're a good way to put some spare cash into your pockets while using the Internet. I said in my previous article that I would possibly write future articles and expand on this topic. The time for part two has arrived. Just like in my previous article, I'm going to review three different sites I've earned from. I'm also going to provide screen shots as proof that these sites are legit. I'm in no way promoting or encouraging anyone to register for these sites. The goal is to provide information, and let people know that there are legit sites to earn from. Lets get into it.
Surveyhead is one of those sites that I've had a love/hate relationship with. I don't recall the exact date that I registered for Surveyhead, but it was sometime in 2008. I was very active on this site back in 2009. I found myself reaching the $25 dollar cash out mark pretty frequently. The only real knock that I had against Surveyhead back then, was the length of time it took for them to confirm and credit surveys taken. It normally took weeks for surveys to be credited, but eventually there were. Unfortunately, things ended up taking a turn for the worse with me regarding this site. I had contacted Surveyhead on several occasions about surveys that I had taken. These were surveys that had been pending for over a year. Yes a whole year. After not receiving any response from them, I contacted the Better Business Bureau(BBB). I had to go through the BBB just to get some of the surveys I had taken credited. After contacting the BBB and getting things settled, Surveyhead credited my pending surveys. However, all of this definitely left a sour taste in my mouth regarding Surveyhead. Following this debacle, I decided to give Surveyhead a long rest. Things at Surveyhead have changed quite a bit now for the better. They now have multiple rewards that members can redeem their credits for, and it doesn't take as long as it once did for them to credit surveys taken. I'm still not as active on this site as I once was. I still get survey requests in my e-mail inbox, and I try to take a few of them from time to time. To the right is a snapshot of the total amount of money I've earned via Paypal through Surveyhead. I would post the individual payments, but the page is too long to place in this article. Surveyhead may be shaky about crediting surveys, but they definitely fall in the category of legit earning sites.
Toluna is another online site that rewards members for their activity in the community. The bulk of the points that members earn from the site will come from taking surveys. However, it's also possible to earn points toward rewards through answering polls and topics, and also creating your own topics and discussions. Toluna is another site that has undergone quite a few changes since I first started using it. I first started using Toluna back in the year 2007. Back then the site was called "Your2Cents". When I first started using Your2Cents/Toluna, it was extremely hard to qualify for surveys. That meant it was extremely hard to reach the cash out mark. Things got way better once Your2Cents merged with Greenfield Online Surveys. This is when the name was changed to Toluna. Toluna honestly used to be one of my favorite sites, but I seldom participate now. They once paid members through Paypal, but they got rid of that option sometime in 2010. From that point on, they only paid members who redeemed their points for cash through a check in the mail. Toluna used to credit surveys taken within a couple of days, but that also changed sometime in 2011. It started taking them weeks and even months to credit surveys, which turned off a lot of members including myself. 60,000 points on Toluna is equal to 20 dollars. For a while I was reaching the 60,000 point cash out mark on a monthly basis, but that changed once it started taking them longer to credit surveys. Toluna is definitely a legit earning site, but don't expect to be regularly earning there. However, they are a legit earning site, which is what this article is all about.
Mypoints is one of my favorite online reward sites. I've been a member of Mypoints since 3/15/2007. Mypoints is another site that rewards members for their activity. Mypoints sends most of their offers to their members e-mail addresses. Users earn points when they sign-up and register for various offers. Members of Mypoints can also take surveys to help increase their points balance. Unlike many other sites, Mypoints credits members 10 points just for attempting a survey. So even if you don't qualify for the entire survey, you'll earn something at least. With many of the offers that Mypoints send via e-mail, you'll receive 5 points to your account just for clicking through the offer. That means that even if you don't sign up for a particular offer, you will still earn a few points. I want to state that this doesn't apply to all of the offers, just certain ones. They'll let you know in the e-mail whether or not you'll earn points by clicking through. Five and ten points aren't very much, but they definitely add up. Mypoints also has a search finder toolbar that users can download to their browser. Members who use the toolbar for searches can earn points based on the number of searches done within a particular month. The rewards options on Mypoints makes this site special as well. There are numerous rewards that can be earned on Mypoints. They range from Visa gift cards, gift cards to various stores, Amazon gift cards, and Paypal as well. The only negative that I could point out regarding Mypoints is the number of points required to redeem most rewards. It takes quite a few points to redeem rewards, but it's worth it in the end. Mainly because Mypoints is a site that doesn't require you to spending a lot of time on. I've redeemed my points from the site on several occasions. Most have been redeemed for Paypal money, but I've also redeemed a Visa gift card, and Amazon gift certificates as well. I've never had any problems or troubles with Mypoints, and I've never spent a dime there. Mypoints is a site that I would highly recommend looking into. There are many opportunities to earn on Mypoints. Posted to the right is a screenshot of the number of points I currently have, and the points I've earned during my time on Mypoints.
Are you a member of either Surveyhead, Toluna, or Mypoints?
So there you have it. That concludes the second edition of "Three online sites that I've earned from, along with payment proofs". I hope you enjoyed reading it. As I've mentioned several times before, these articles are only for informational purposes. If you are thinking about joining any sites online where money can be earned or rewards can be redeemed, make sure you do your own research first. It's definitely possible that a third edition of this subject will come to fruition, so be sure to stay tuned. Thanks for reading, and happy online earning.
