I am putting a list together of ways that I have earned paypal and other useful giftcards. All of the ways that I will share with you are tried and true. I have actually used these programs or survey sites for over 2 years and I have been successfully rewarded from them. These are referral links and I will be thanked with incentive points if you choose to sign up through them.
Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you with swagbucks randomly when you search through them. I have this site bookmarked and I use it a few times a day for random word searches. You will see a "Congratulations! You won swagbucks" banner on your page when you win. You may win swagbucks more than once a day so search often. Once you sign up, you can see the rewards offered by going to the Swagstore then gifts and rewards. They offer both Amazon gift cards and PayPal, among other gifts. Please use my Swagbucks link to sign up if you want to give it a try. I have earned $255 in amazon gift cards in the 2 years that I have been using them.
Mypoints is great way to earn PayPal and other nice gift cards. I have been with them for over 10 years and earned many nice gift cards like Bath and Body Works, Chili's and Cracker Barrell just to name a few. Mypoints even offers PayPal and Prepaid Visa Cards as rewards. Mypoints works by you filling out an initial survey and you checking off areas that interest you. The more you check off, the more offers you will get, which is what you want. To earn points, you will get daily emails from mypoints bonus mail and near the bottom of the email it will have a sponsor link in it. It will say "get points". You will get 5 points for clicking and letting the page load or you will get more points if you decide to take advantage of the email offer. This is a great way to earn free rewards just by checking your email. I would love for you to sign up under me but I don't see a direct link for this. If you are interested in this program, please leave me a comment below with your first and last name initials and your email address and I will be happy to send a referral to you through their website.
Sponsored Tweets: Did you know that you can actually be paid to tweet? I use and I get paid in paypal to tweet a short message for advertisers.
It's easy to sign up and you will only get emails when you have a tweeting opportunity or when you make money.
Social Spark is a great way for bloggers to make money while sharing businesses with others. There are four steps to making cash with Social Spark.
1. You set your price per post
2. Pick your advertisers
3. Write your post
4. Get paid via PayPal
Saynation is a survey site that I like to use. They offer a catalog of rewards such as Amazon Gift Cards, PayPal, Walmart Gift Cards, AMC, Victoria Secret Gift Cards and even Barnes and Noble Gift Cards. This is a referral link and I would love for you to sign up through me. Sign up is free and easy. I have earned over $75 in paypal through them.
Mindfield is another survey site that pays by check or PayPal. The cashout threshold is $5. Once you reach this amount you may request a payment from them.
Surveyhead is a survey site that I have been using for several years. Once you reach a $25 threshold, you may redeem your points for Amazon Gift Cards or PayPal. There are other rewards for a lower threshold of $10 but I hold on to my points until I reach the $25 level. I have earned $139.60 with them so far. I have found that if you take a survey as soon as it arrives in your inbox, then you have a better chance of completing it for payment. Once a survey goes out to the public, it may fill up quickly and you could miss out on earnings. I do not have a referral link for surveyhead at this time but I am requesting an affiliate link for them.
Ebates is a great way to earn cash back for shopping online at stores that you already shop at.
I will be updating this post as I find other ways to help you earn PayPal, Amazon Gift Cards and other useful rewards.
Disclosure: This is a personal post. I am not receiving any incentive for posting this. I may receive promotional points if anyone chooses to use my referral links to sign up for the programs that I use and mentioned.
