Christmas is nearly here and if you are like many of us, you are coming up a little short when it comes to money for christmas presents. You have two options. You can cut back on the presents that you send out or you can seek out an additional source of funding. If you can not imagine cutting back, we have an easy solution for you. Survey taking. Sounds crazy but it actually works and here is how you do it.
1.Get a free email account. (Optional)
This is an optional step but if you want to keep your survey work separate from your personal account and protect your long time email from spam, this might be a good option for you. I prefer GMail, but there are many options out there. Click here to go to GMail.
2. Register at survey websites.
Now, it is time to go to work. You will need to register for several different survey websites. The more good sites that you have, the easier it is to choose the highest paying surveys. Beware of websites that want to charge you for access, they are not legitimate. Here are a few good ones to get you started.
Our Top Pick [Updated July 2020]
- Swagbucks Swagbucks is one of the most trusted names in paid surveys and they have a number of tools that can help you make money. Do paid surveys, watch videos and even play games and earn. They are also currently giving away sign up bonuses for new accounts.
3. Confirm your account.
You will not be able to cash out your points without validating your email. The survey websites often save their best surveys for confirmed accounts, so take a minute and click on the confirm link that the websites send to your email.
4. Start earning points.
Once you have set up your accounts, you can go about taking surveys. Choose the ones that pay the most for the time involved. Most surveys will show the payout and the average time. Take this into account. You do not want to take a 2o minute survey to earn $5 if you can earn $10 in 10 minutes on another survey.
5. Cash out your points.
Once you have earned the amount of money that you need, cash them out for gift cards to the palces you want to shop. Places like Amazon, Walmart, Sears, etc.
Simple right. That is all it takes to start earning the money that you need to complete your Christmas shopping.
