One of the recent sites I joined was Points2shop . I joined about a week ago and have been more than pleased with the results. Basically you fill out simple surveys or offers to earn points(or money) to use on Amazon. You don't nessesarily have to use it on Amazon, as you can withdrawal your money to your paypal account. This is a very user-friendly site with easy navigation and many members willing to help you. In 2 days I was able to make around $10.00. And thats just from being a "New" member. Once you go higher in rank, it becomes easier to earn cash.

How it works:

Advertisers spend millions of dollars each year on research. What is the easiest way to conduct the research? By reaching out to consumers like you and getting the information the want through surveys. For example, One of the surveys I completed was about tires. They wanted to know which tire brands I was familiar with and how likely I was to purchase those brands. Points2shop gets paid by the advertisers and you get a portion of that!

There are also simpler ways too. Some companies such as Kelloggs just want you to sign up for their newsletter. Kelloggs pays points2shop, and they pay you. (for these sign-up offers, I usually just use fake information). Sometimes you only have to submit your zipcode and you get points just for that!

You can also have fun while earning points too! There are about 6 games you can play which you basically gamble your points to compete with other players. For a 1 on 1, you spend 30pts and can with 52 pts if you score higher than the other player! You can also compete with 4 other players which costs 50pts to play and you can win 180! (or you can play for free to practice :) ) If gaming isn't fun to you, then maybe watching videos is. Everyday new videos are updated, and you earn points just for watching them! They also have a thing called "Daily Tasks" which you get points for doing simple tasks. Such as finding things on the web (like a scavanger hunt). I personally don't like it, but others enjoy it!

Heres some of the benefits I've found from the site:

  • NO Credit Card Required (Just your email & contact info)
  • Free 250 points ($2.50) just for signing up
  • Very easy to earn points
  • You can start ordering prizes right away
  • Fun ways to earn points (Playing games with other members, watching videos, daily tasks, ect.)
  • Live chat with other members/moderaters to help you
  • Forum for you to intereact with other members
Things I dislike about the site:
  • You aren't always qualified for each survey
  • To earn some points you have to download stuff (I usually just avoid these)

This site is NOT going to get you rich or pay your mortgage off, but this is great for earning a little cash on the side. Within the 2nd day of joining the site I was able to purchase a cheap knife (Wahoo Fillet Knife) I was interested in. Only cost about $8.00 after shipping, but it was all covered by the points I earned.

Overall, I would highly recommend if you just want to make a little extra cash on the side. I've tried other sites before, such as ( Review in the future!) , which completely suck. Points2Shop is certainly one of the best and user-friendly sites (from what i've found) to earning money and being able to cash out at any time!

Join and you get an automatic $2.50 JUST for signing up. You could really just take the $2.50 and leave if you really wanted to. Click here to join and good luck! :)

(I will keep you updated and post a pic of proof when I receive my knife)

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I recieved my knife that I ordered a few days ago! It only took around 4 days for the item to be shippped and I am more than happy with the service. Also, I raised enough money to also buy a Gerber Sportsman Folding Saw . I raised most of that money (around $13.00 after shipping) by just playing games and doing daily tasks! I will post a picture of that when I recieve it! But until then, heres picture evidence of the Wahoo Killer Knife I ordered from Points2shop !
