Rewards Programs I Use: Simple To Do & Money Makers/Savers!

I thought I would take some time and share some of the Reward Programs I use. I have recently come to the conclusion that I was not taking full advantage of these rewards programs, nor was I consistently using them. For the past month I have concentrated on seeing what true benefits I can get from them. 

I was beyond surprised, as some of these I have been signed up for months, if not longer. And did not realize the potential until really crunching the numbers. I do seem to gravitate to the reward programs that take little to no time, so those are going to be my focus when sharing. These also are in no particular order, I will try to give a breakdown of each one and share as much information as I can on each.

Jing-it~ the full explanation can be found in this post, as well as some links to follow to help you begin earning money. This is one that most are becoming familiar with, and one of the easiest to do. What is nice is that there is the potential to earn even more money, if you have a smart phone. The usual amount that can be earned each week is $10, but if you get a couple of friends to sign-up under you, you can get up to $15 per week. This goal is reset each Sunday and is very quickly reachable with very little effort. 

So, depending on if you get the $10 or $15, that is an extra free $40-$60/month! Or $480-$720/year. When you look at it this way, you can see how this just might benefit you through-out the year. And remember, each of your phones can be used, all you need is family members AND their Facebook accounts. Now, begin looking at those numbers!

InboxDollars~ This where you can earn points for reading emails, taking surveys, full-filling offers, watching videos, etc. These points can be redeemed towards gift cards, cash and more. You receive a $5.00 bonus for just starting your account. I have already gotten one check from them, I cashed out when I hit the $30.00. When you cash out the first time, you will become a Gold Member, you get more benefits when this occurs.

I have kept to a ritual of opening the 2-4 emails that they send per day. Each email I "confirm" {by clicking the link and let the offer page show} I receive $.02. This may not seem like much, but I get approximately $.06 each day. The breakdown on just the emails would be $21.90/year. Now remember this is email only.

Inbox dollars also has 3 surveys that I qualify for each day for a total of $1.50. This comes to $547.50! Now add the email money to it and you get a total per year of $569.40!! This is for only doing the minimum, this does not include videos, offers, or anything else.

SendEarnings~~This one is almost exactly like Inbox Dollars, even the webpages look similar. You receive a $5.00 bonus for just starting your account. I just began earning with them, so I have not hit the payout. Again, this is exactly the same as Inbox Dollars, the totals should end up being very close to what the above totals were. I also only do the emails at $.02 a day. The only difference with SendEarning's is that for right now they don't offer those 3 surveys. But there are many survey's and offers available to help you reach the payout goal.

Kellogg's Rewards: This is a new program that has started. I am just beginning. Since, I have 7 kids in the house there is never a shortage of cereal and now with this program, I am expecting it will be a good one. You can read more about it here in this post, along with this post is some codes to help you get started. 

From the looks of it, this will be added to my supply of gift-card sites. Which I use for gifts through-out the year.

SuperPoints~~Earn points for spinning the wheel Daily (chances are good you
will win a few points) watching short videos, and much more. These points can be redeemed towards prizes or gift cards. 

I do the bare minimum, I get usually 1 bonus point in an email each day{though it has been as high as 25}, I then do my spins on the SuperLuckyButton. You start off with 30 spins, but if you get 2 friends to join under you, this will go up to 50 spins each day. There are some days were an extra 25 spins are available, this is sporadic  Each spin can generate anywhere from 0-200 points. I usually get 1 or 2 multiple times through out. The spins reload each day.The video's I may or may not do, most of the time I may let on go and then read some emails as it runs.

I use Superpoints for earning GiftCards. Some of the things I have saved up my points for are Amazon GiftCards or cash into Paypal. For reference it is 600 points for a $5 Amazon Giftcard and 689 for $5 Paypal. They do start you off with 25 points, I think that is what the average is, but it may be more.

I am saving my points to use for gifts, so they will be spent throughout the year. 

MyPoints~~Since when does shopping pay you back? MyPoints members earn Points every time they shop from our network of top retailers. Join MyPoints to receive personalized deals every day, and reward yourself with gift cards, cash back or travel miles. You can earn points for doing many tasks, like surveys, shopping, printing coupons, etc.

I only do the bare minimum here, too. I earn points for reading emails, usually 5 points per email. These points I usually redeem for gift cards like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. There really are to many to list. 

Swagbucks~~Earn points for searching the web, taking daily polls, watching short videos, and much more. These points can be redeemed towards prizes or gift cards. I use this the same as the last two, I use this for obtaining gift cards for gifts.

Swagbucks is usually something I only watch the videos, watch for special promo codes, and do the daily poll. There are many other ways to earn swagbucks, but like I said I try and do what takes the least amount of time.

Recyclebank~~This is where you earn points for following though on certain tasks or pledging to do something. While this one does take a little more time  to complete, I really enjoy the benefits from it.

I redeem my earnings quickly on either high value coupons or magazine subscriptions. These magazine subscriptions are either a personal treat for me or to give as gifts. 

Points add up quickly, which is nice if you want to be rewarded quickly. There are gift cards available from most popular merchants, as well.

There are some others, but these are the ones that I have consistently been doing lately. There are also some survey sites that I participate in that have yielded really good results, but will share those at another time. Personally, I am still amazed at the results of these few rewards programs.

  1. I would look at MySurvey as well, I do that one and I have made quite a bit of money doing that. I trade all my points in for paypal, but you have other options.
