Tips for earning money on cash crate

Cashcrate !!

Some people have emailed me asking how cashcrate actually works and not to naviage the site correctly. I decided to post the email that I was sending to them. PLEASE EMAIL ME if you have ANY questions !! I am here to help ! I wanted to go ahead and post this since there maybe a day delay in responding to your email and I know some people are anxious to get started earning money.

The following is the email:

This site
pays money for taking surveys. It does not pay much but it adds up. I earned $74.92 last month. There are no fees to join and on the 20th of the month following the month the surveys were completed, they mail a check out to you. (I will get my check around the 20th of April- for the surveys completed in March- once I receive it I will scan it and load it so everyone can see the check) .

Some of the surveys are a few pages, but as long as you click either skip/no, thanks/no to the advertisement on the pages following registration, everything is credited. Some are ads basically to review companies advertisements. Since the do not call list was started advertisers are having trouble getting consumers to hear their pitch. If you decide to do it, DO NOT do any of the surveys that say you have to complete a Silver/Gold/Bronze offer- you can do the survey, but once you get to the page indicating that you need to complete a silver/gold/bronze offer, you can stop there. Also, some of them, once you get to submit after clicking "no" to all offers, will have a window pop up that says "you must say yes to one offer". At that point, click yes to one view the ad, and click either "no thanks" or "skip".
I would create a seperate email soley for the purpose of doing surveys because part of the way the company works and is able to pay money is they give out your email to companies so that they can email you information about their product. Some of the surveys require that you confirm and you will receive a seperate email from that site, with a link within that email to confirm. I do not want anyone to be caught off guard by the large amount of emails you will receive. Other than needing to confirm a survey here and there, you will not need to open the emails. I usually go in and mark all to delete when I do not have any that I needed to confirm via email.

Please note also that if you put your phone number (which you are required to do on some of the surveys, you will get phone calls. By signing up you give them permission to contact you. I have caller id, so I either do not answer it or I simply tell them I am not interested. You do not have to speak to them in order to have your account credited through the site.

One pointer- I found that it works better if I complete a few a day, rather than a whole bunch. Some of the surveys are by the same site, so if you complete more than one, it will probably only approve one pending offer that you completed. Once it confirms, go on and do another one. You can usually tell the companies that are the same. For example, I usually go through a complete a few a night (or every few nights), but I make sure I only complete 1 participate in survey, 1 complete the survey, 1 fill out the information. Since chances are the same company has the "participate in the survey" I wait until one credits before I complete another one.

Second pointer- I opened a few different email accounts. (I did not heed my own advise to open a completely seperate email before signing up). Once you sign up with the site, you have to use the ORIGINAL email address that you signed up using to complete daily surveys but the other surveys can be completed using different email address.

Third pointer- every day or so delete your cookies from your computer. Once you delete them the survey companys information is not imbedded in your computer and surveys should complete quicker. Check out this link if you need help or do not know how to delete your cookies. If you need additional help, email me and I will help.
Only one account is availalble on each server/Ip address. So really only one person per house is able to do it.
Also, you can do 2 daily surveys, each for 0.80 daily (some you have to qualify for). So right there if you only do that you can make $48/month, without doing any of the surveys.

UGH!! Summer is quickly approaching and I love it... I love no homework, no shuffling kid to/from events, hot weather and vacations !! But with that comes added expenses.... no only fees for summer camp, $$ for summer fun and vacations.. We usually go on one family trip and I go on a girls only trip. This year we are going on a cruise.. Luckily we have had to pay in installments, so it did not hurt so much- not like coughing up $500 at one time would hurt... I usually try to go to the beach with my son at some point during the summer... We have also been invited with family to go to Disney in Florida in July. That should be a lot of FUN !! Getting my debt paid down is going to suffer for a few months... Although I am NOT going to charge anything on them, I am only going to pay the minimums for the next two-three months....

I know we do not need to go on multiple vacations, or even one vacation a year. But I enjoy it and soon my son will not want to spend time with me as he approaches teenage/adult age :) I need to enjoy this time. I do not mind making minimum payments for the next two months so that I can swing this...

On another note, one thing that I have also found profitable is selling on ebay. I enrolled sites such as pampers, huggies, enfamil, gerber, platex, johnson & johnson, etc.- pretty much anything that sends you coupons. From there they send you coupons. Then I check online at ebay to see how the coupons sell and then I list them. Also when I get gift cards from limited, bath & body works, etc for free products or % off, I list them also on. It really does not amount to much $ but every little bit helps.

Another suggestion other than cashcrate is They typically email you a survey to complete every 10 days. They will automatically credit your paypal account with the amount payable by completing the survey. (Usually about $2.25) This money can then be transferred to your bank account that is linked up to your paypal account.

Hope all of this helps you all...

End of the Month

$74.80 + $212.00 = 286.80 total in extra money. $74.80 from cashcrate and $212 from Mystery Shopping. If any of you are interested in Mystery Shopping, please let me know and I can fill you in how to get started. It is more time consuming and detailed and can not be performed at your computer. You have to shop a certain business and then report on it via computer. I usually complete mine on my lunch hour. Some shops pay $10, some as much as $30.00.
