The Quest for Beer-Money

Updated on May 24, 2019

Bennett is an avid user of the internet and is always looking for ways to earn a buck, armed with Spotify Premium and a list of links.

What Does "Beer-Money" Refer To?

Let's start off with defining what we're gonna be talking about, why don't we?

Beer-money, I could imagine, is used in a lot of contexts but what I refer to is the act of earning small amounts (or large, depending on your methods) of money online, doing surveys, watching videos and so on.

There's even an entire subreddit dedicated to it, which is one of my personal sources of inspiration in my quest for decent amounts of money!

Why not join me? If all it takes to earn a couple of dollars is to answer a few questions, how can anyone say no?

Can I Actually Earn Money Doing Surveys And Such?

Okay, so I'll be honest. In most cases, the answer is no. Hell, I was even on the verge of giving up at one point but decided to continue as I'm a student with no job (and no friends and activities to attend to...).

Browsing the BeerMoney subreddit, however, I stumbled upon a couple of pretty amazing sites that were definitely worth trying and thus, I went to work to bring you all a couple of ways to earn a buck or two.

Now, I'll be sharing my own favorites and provide as much information as I possibly can and I just want to mention from the get-go that I'd greatly appreciate if you used my referral links where it's possible (thank you in advance).

Quick Site Overview

Name of Site
Supported Payouts
Amount of Moneh
Gain.gg
PayPal, Bitcoin, Litecoin, OPSkins, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash
0.8 USD per YourSurveys survey and other ways to earn more
Amazon Mechanical Turk
Possibly(?) to your Amazon Wallet
Varies depending on the tasks
For more details on the sites, continue reading!

Gain.gg

I thought I'd start off with my personal favorite and, in my opinion, the best of what I have to offer.

The features

There's nothing really special about Gain.gg apart from the fact that they actually reward you for the tasks and surveys you do. I've experienced the opposite to the point where I've completely lost count, so this is greatly appreciated.

Of course, it wouldn't be worth recommending if the only thing they offered was reliable payouts. Gain.gg is heavily integrated with YourSurveys, which is a pretty good platform for surveys and each one you properly complete gives you 800 coins.

Now, the conversion rate from their "coins" to US dollars is pretty simple. 1000 coins are 1 USD, which means a single YourSurvey survey pays out almost a dollar.

Even if these surveys aren't your cup of tea, there's still the usual (and reliable) offer walls with fair rewards as well. Download apps, sign up for competitions and other such things through OfferToro or SuperRewards.

Want something you can "partake" in as well?

If you want a more of an "active" role in your earning there's always the video section, even if watching videos isn't really being an active user... It'll at least be interesting if you choose a category of your liking and it'll still be paying out pretty handsomely.

Payouts?

When it comes to getting those sweet, sweet coins out of their system and into yours, do not even fret for a second!

Gain.gg supports payouts through PayPal, Bitcoin, Litecoin, OPSkins, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash.

Interested? Join now!

If you think Gain.gg is something for you, you should definitely go check it out! All you have to do is sign in either through a Google or Steam account and you're in the game.

If it's not too much of a bother I'd really appreciate if you used my personal referral link to the site. Apart from helping me out and showing a bit of gratitude for pushing you in the site's direction, there's also a 100 coin bonus if you're referred by someone else!

Amazon Mechanical Turk

Sadly, I don't know that much Amazon's Mechanical Turk program since I wasn't accepted to participate in it... But fear not! I suspect that my location ruined my chances but that doesn't mean it's not worth a try for you.

The fact that the service is run by Amazon gives it more credibility than pretty much any other site ever could.

So, what do I do?

As Amazon puts it themselves: "Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a crowdsourcing marketplace that makes it easier for individuals and businesses to outsource their processes and jobs to a distributed workforce who can perform these tasks virtually.", which pretty much means that you'll be completing small tasks in exchange for the sweet dollar.

The tasks range from data validation to good ol' research. Stuff that we humans, despite the development of new technologies, are still the best at.

Payouts?

To be honest, I don't know how you're paid through MTurk but I assume that your earnings will be credited to your Amazon Wallet. This is my best guess, at least. I apologize for the lack of details but as I said, I haven't been able to try it all out for myself.

Should I try it?

I don't see any harm in trying. You're not obligated to continue your work with them if you dislike the service and from what I've found out about the platform, it should be pretty manageable and over-all friendly to use.

Final Words

I should probably mention that I wasn't paid to write this Hub. Apart from the standard earnings from our HubPages overlords, of course, and through my external referral link (which doesn't directly pay me).

I would have loved to include more sites on my, short, list but the sad reality is that I haven't found other services or sites even worth mentioning. If I ever progress in my search for more pages such as these, I will surely let all of you know either through another Hub or simply by updating this one.

Thank you all for giving this a read. I hope you've found something worth trying out and if not, I urge you to continue the search yourselves. Perhaps you'll find something I haven't.

(Also, as a footnote. I highly recommend getting yourself a Spotify subscription or something if you decide to spend a night answering surveys!)

      Thank you very much!

      I have indeed heard of cryptocurrencies but given Bitcoin's fall in value, I don't really consider it an investment at the moment, which is also why I didn't include it here.

      Nice article to read, Have you ever heard about cryptocurrency? like bitcoin, ethereum, veil, wave, etc. If you haven't heard about them just search the article about them. I am a fulltime for being a bounty hunter. I have no job but I can earn some buck from this.
