Full Steam Ahead!!! October 2012 Earnings

After a long break from blogging, I'm back!!!!  What's been up with me?  My kids are now 14 and 11, a freshman and a 5th grader.  I've been substitute teaching for the last couple of years, but unfortunately this year it's just not coming through for me.  My county recently switched to an automated sub calling system and I'm just not getting the jobs like last year.  I haven't stopped with my surveys all this time, although I hadn't been keeping up with them until recently.  With Christmas coming so quickly, I decided to plow back into things full force.  It  definitely payed off in October.  My list of paying survey companies has definitely changed a bit since 2010.  I'll start with this entry just to summarize my October activity.  Sign up links are provided.  I'll provide details on my favorites separately over the next weeks.  I hope I can help a few with all that Christmas spending.

Palm Research Surveys Pays

I just received my first payment from Palm Research.  This is my newest survey site to review.  It's easy to qualify for payment.  They send you two links to surveys each day.  Every survey pays $1 if you qualify and complete it.  Once you reach $10 or more in your account, you will automatically receive the money in Paypal 45 days after the end of that month.  Yes,  that takes a while but it's okay just let the money build up and you'll be receiving a payment each month.  Make sure that when you sign up you use your Paypal email address as that is where the payment goes.  Have fun!!!

I just got this great free sample of Snikiddy Baked Frieds from Check them out. My kids love them and they are way healthier than potato chips.

May Survey Earnings

I'm finally getting around to updating my May Survey Earnings. It's been a busy month with my daughter's birthday, dance recitals and auditions and a house guest. I definitely didn't get to complete as many surveys as I would like, but my earnings still show that you can get a decent amount with little effort. I'm hoping to have more time in June. Please check back often as I hope to do more updates during the week. I have a few new sites that I am working with that I need to review. The grand total for the month was $120.45.

Here's the breakdown:

Swagbucks - $25 Amazon Gift Code. Swagbucks has become a very reliable source of Amazon gift codes. I am able to redeem the $25 Amazon gift codes at the beginning of each month -- just from using Swagbucks as my search engine! In May, I was able to combine these gift codes with recent Amazon video game promotional credits to obtain 3 completely free Wii games for my son's upcoming summer birthday.

Opinion Outpost $17.30 Amazon Gift Codes. Opinion Outpost is another big source of Amazon gift codes for me. The best part about this site is that the codes are issued immediately upon redemption. I get paid multiple times each month from this site.

$10 Paypal. After a long hiatus, I'm back to participating with this site. I was very impressed that the Paypal payment was immediate. They send tons of surveys. I only complete those that offer points, not just sweepstakes entries.

MySurvey $10 Paypal. This was the first survey site I ever joined. I was very happy to see that they have added additonal payment options.

Global Opinion Panels (Synovate) $10 Check. These surveys are typically very easy to qualify for and you get points even if you don't qualify.

Lightspeed Panel $5 Paypal. This is another very reliable survey site. I alternate between Paypal and Amazon code payments.

Pinecone Research $6 Paypal. If you ever see an advertisement to apply to this site, do it. They pay quickly via Paypal and I have received many products to test.

$3 Paypal. This is a new site that I've tried. It sends surveys daily and pays $1 for each that you qualify. Sometimes they are typical surveys from other paid sites and sometimes it is as simple as signing up for a newsletter. Make sure that you sign up with your Paypal email address as payments are sent directly there.

Clear Voice Surveys
$20 Amazon codes. This is my second month participating with Clear Voice. Their surveys are easy and abundant. There have been time when I attempt to Redeem and it says that there are no Amazon codes available right now. I just try another day and it goes through. When the codes are available, they are issued immediately upon redemption.

Opinion Square
$11.15 Regal Movie Ticket. I neglected this site for a long time, but now I use it, along with MyPoints, as a consistent source of Regal Cinema gift cards and free tickets. There are many other prizes.
. $3 Paypal. I do not see many surveys from this site, but they do pay for each individual survey directly to Paypal.

April Survey Earnings - Amazon Gift Cards!

April was a busy month for me, so I did not keep up with my surveys as much as usual. I did do very well still with Amazon gift cards and will definitely have Christmas presents covered this year! Here's a summary of the entire month with links to sign up. Total survey earnings for the month $127.10. Given that I missed a lot of days of completing surveys, I'm happy with this total.

Swagbucks - $25 Amazon Gift Code. I consistently get at least this much a month with Swagbucks. This take no time at all, just normal searching on the web like you always do. See my archives for more information on this one.

Opinion Outpost $5 Amazon Gift Code. One of my favorite suvey sites!

Clear Voice Surveys $10 Amazon Gift Code. This survey site paid immediately in April. I currently have enough to redeem again, but it says the are out of the Amazon gift codes right now. I would hold off on completing suveys here. I'll update when they are available again.

Valued Opinions
$20 Amazon Gift Code. This is my first time cashing out with this company. I highly recommend it. The Amazon code was issued immediately.

$27 - 3 Free Game Rentals at Blockbuster. A treat for the kids! You can't sign up for this one directly, but usually get an invitation when signing up for sponsors like Borders Rewards and Blockbuster.

l - $5 Amazon Code, $5 Paypal. This is a tried and true survey site for me. I alternate between Amazon codes and Paypal payment. There are many other reward methods.

- $10 Regal Cinemas Gift Card. Great rewards selection here.

Testspin $10 Amazon Gift Code

HCD Surveys - $10.10 Check. This survey site has the quickest surveys to complete on really fun topics. You review things like Super Bowl commercials, politician's statements, Tiger Woods statement on infidelity, and vote for your American Idol favorites.
