How To Earn Money Online For Teens and Adults

Updated on April 30, 2014


Points2Shop is one of my top favorite sites to make money online. I have been using it for over a year on and off and have turned up very satisfied with the results. It's not like your usual money making sites. You don't have to do surveys or click ads in order to make a few bucks. You can sign up for sites, do surveys, play games, and all types of different things. Instead of earning money you earn points. Every points is equal to .01 and you can redeem those points on anything from gift cards to actual Amazon products!

How To Get Started

First of all, you need to sign up for it. That's as simple as it gets. After you have signed up you should browse around the site and get familiar with it because with my success, you'll be on it for a long time. Once you've gotten to know the site, it's time to make some money.

Earn Points

Okay, now that you are familiar with the site it's time to get down to business. There are so many ways to actually earn money on Points2Shop, I haven't even gotten the chance to experience them all. The different methods work for different people. For me, taking surveys has proven to be effective along with doing external offers like Peanut Labs and Radium One,

You can also sign up for newsletters and websites to earn points but make sure that you enter a non personal email address because sometime's they send a lot of spam. Once you've gotten a few points you can enter in the daily lottery to take a chance to make a bit more money or try out your skills against other players in games.

If you have a credit card, you can also sign up for trial offers with pay a lot more than regular but require you to enter a credit card. The trick here is to make sure that you cancel whatever subscription that you sign up for before it ends that way your card doesn't get charged. Make sure that you look over the site before you enter it thought because sometimes there are catches that you might not notice at first.

Another option that you can use is mobile offers. This is just as simple as downloading apps to your smartphone for a small amount of points. This can be a good alternative if you are on the go and just want to make a few cents by downloading games that you can delete once you've opened them.

Spend Points

After you have gotten the amount of points that you desire, it's time to spend that hard earned cash. You can redeem the points that you earn multiple ways. The most common way that users use is just by simply finding a product on Amazon and using their points for that. Points2Shop is linked with Amazon so the process is really simple. All you have to do is search for whatever you are wanting and then picking the seller you want to buy from. After that, just wait 2-3 days for your order to confirm and wait for it to ship out.

If you don't want Amazon, you can also get gift cards. The cards vary from retail cards to game cards like Xbox money or PlayStation cards. Some cards get mailed to your address and some just simply get emailed to you or messaged to you on the site.

The last method is withdrawing cash. If you choose to earn cash instead of points when you do your offers, you can withdraw that cash into your Pay Pal, bank account or even a check. The choices are almost endless.


If you've read this fully you should be on your way to making money online. I promise you that if you take your time and are dedicated to making money, you will! Take it from me, sometimes it seemed like I was never going to make anything and that I would just be wasting my time on a site that didn't work. But after not giving up, I found out that this was one of the best sites on the web. Good luck earning!


  • Don't do to many offers at one time. Sometimes this can delay your crediting.
  • Alternate the emails that you use when you sign up for offers. Sometimes this can help you be credited more often.
