Another Payment Received From SurveyHead

SurveyHead is one of my favorite survey sites. To date I have been paid over $130 by them. If you're taking surveys online to earn extra money you'll want to check them out. They have several payment options my favorite of which is paypal. I've never had to wait more than a month to receive my payment. They also have great customer support which does respond to any problems or concerns you may have.

NeoBux Proof of Payment

Neobux in my opinion is one of the best PTC sites out there. They are honest and pay instantly when you reach your cash out balance. You can do a quick google search and see that they are often rated the best PTC site on the net.

Most of the ads on this PTC (paid to click) site are worth .01 some are only worth .005 and others are worth a bit more. I know this doesn't sound like much but over time it will add up. They also have a few options to increase your earnings such as the ability to rent referrals and participate in different drawings.

Tip Check the site several times through out the ads are constantly being added.

Cook With a Crock-Pot

Owning a crock-pot is very economical. Crock-pots only cost around $10 to $100 to buy depending on how fancy of a model you get. They can help you save money on your grocery bill by allowing you to buy cheaper cuts of meat that become tenderized after cooking on low heat over a period of time. Cooking with a crock-pot will also help you conserve energy. The average crock-pot although taking a bit longer to cook your food saves you about 50% of the energy your oven would use in a shorter amount of time.

Another benefit to owning a slow cooker is the clean up is easy. Since you're cooking the whole meal in one dish there isn't much to clean up afterwards. You can also cook in bulk by making a large pot of soup,stew, or chilli. This will save you time and energy later in the week when you're looking for a quick lunch or dinner.

Here are a few great sites that offer some recipes for crock-pot cooking.

1. Better Homes and Gardens - classic crock-pot recipes

2. CDKitchen

3. A Crock Cook

Tuesday, August 11, 2009 is basically a GPT (get paid to) site that also has PTC (paid to click),survey opportunities and cash back shopping. You can also refer friends and earn up to 5% of their earnings. It is free to join and membership is open to those that live in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada. You can cash out your balance for cash in Paypal, point transfers to other websites, a variety of different online/offline store gift certificates, advertisement money and other selections.There is no minimum for paypal payments and payments are generally received in 12-48 hours.

I've been a member of this site for a few months but haven't done a whole lot with it. Generally I read my paid emails and if I can remember I visit the site to do the daily clicks. So far my balance is $2.44. I could cash it out but plan on waiting until I have a bit more money available. I will post proof of payment when I do cash out,

SimpleGPT and SurveyHead Payment Proofs

Payment #3 from SimpleGPT bringing my total earned so far to $120

SimpleGPT is a get paid to site. You are paid to complete free offers and fill out surveys. I've tried other GPT (get paid to) sites in the past but never had much luck at getting the offers to credit. With SimpleGPT that's not a problem. I think what makes it such a great site (aside from the instant paypal payments) is they have various Mods available in the chat box to help you out should you have any questions. Doug the Admin. is also very active..he insures that the site regularly has new offers for members to complete and he runs great contests that allow members an extra opportunity to earn. For example the current offer contest runs through the entire month of August..the member that completes the most offers wins $250..second place $150..third place $75..fourth $50..fifth pays $25..and so on.

Here is another proof of payment from SurveyHead

SurveyHead is an online site which pays you to take surveys. When you sign up you receive a $5 sign up bonus. I've been paid several times by this site.

Sunday, August 02, 2009 August Contest - Enter to win a Sterling Silver Open Heart Ribbon Necklace One-of-a-kind piece you'll treasure for years, this elegant pendant necklace features a sculptural take on the classic heart shape

All you have to do to enter the contest is sign up to receive the Women Freebie newsletter and confirm your sign up through an email that will be sent to you.

Scour Announces Changes

Scour is growing and as a result they are upgrading their rewards system to include ALL countries and increase payouts. Rather than the monthly prize draw of $1000 they will now be having a daily prize draw of $25. You will earn one entry for every search, vote and comment you make while using Scour. You will also earn 25% of your referrals points. So for every 4 searches a referral does you earn 1 extra entry.

So what does this mean for the current points you've earned? Here is what the scour blog had to say about it.

Earn money with Scour!

As a thank you for all your past participation, during our transition to the new $25 daily Cash Giveaway we are offering the following BONUS:

As of September 1, 2009 all point accumulations will stop and Scour users will be awarded with extra daily search entries for the month of September 2009:

Users with:
1 - 1,500 points will receive 25 daily search entries for 30 days
1,501 - 3,000 points will receive 50 daily search entries for 30 days
3,001 - 4,500 points will receive 75 daily search entries for 30 days
4,501 – 6,000 points will receive 100 daily search entries for 30 days
6,001 - 7,500 points will receive 125 daily search entries for 30 days
7,500 + points will receive 150 daily search entries for 30 days
Note: The daily entry cap for the day is still 350.

August 31, 2009 will be the last day to redeem your points at the minimum 6,500 cashout level. As of September 1, 2009 the current point system will stop and you will have a chance at winning $25 every day, simply by searching, voting and commenting.

Bottom line. I don't like the new system. I was much happier earning points towards a Visa gift Card. Not hoping that I would be lucky enough to "win" $25. The other problem I have with this is if you are "growing" why are you seemingly limiting the rewards you offer?
