How to Earn Some Easy Money  


I'm going to let you in on a little secret, you can buy all the video games and accessories you want or for that matter anything you want by following a few simple instructions. With that said the little secret isn't so little it's called Cashcrate. Cashcrate is a website which pays you to complete offers, such as joining free websites, complete surveys and try out certain products. And you get to do this all for free. Thats right free so if you're interested in making free money read on and I'll let you in on some tips I use when filling out offers.

Not too long ago I wrote a post about Gaming Lagoon a free website in which you fill out offers and surveys for gaming accessories and microsoft points. Cashcrate is similar but instead of points you get cold hard cash thats right cash as in checks in the mail. And you can use your extra cash on what ever you like.

Here is some info from their FAQ:

I’m skeptical, this sounds like a scam?
We assure you that this is not a scam! Companies need consumers to try and review products, services, and websites and are willing to pay money to have them do so. Most of the time you’re asked to do this without any compensation, what we do is take the money companies give us for YOUR participation, and give you back up to 75% of it!

How much can I make?

How much you can make is dependent on a few things such as what country you’re from and how much time you’re willing to devote to making money. As it is, most members have the opportunity to make more than a thousand dollars!

When do I get paid?

Users who meet our minimum payout (only $5!) have their payments processed by the 20th of the following month So, if you earn $250 in June, you’ll get paid in mid-July.

Cashcrate is a very country-specific website. After browsing through their forums and signing up myself to check it out, I realized that like Cashcrate has the most offers for U.S residents and therefore works best for them. However, they have also been known to offer a wide variety of offers for Canadian users.

The offers themselves range from your usual video subscriptions to other free trials which allow you to get a higher return if you own a credit card. If you don't have a credit card like I don't,it's not a problem don't sweat you can still participate, the offers you do just won't pay out as much.

Cashcrate is relatively easy to use. All you need to do is to complete offers and then click on a ‘Submit’ button in a banner that opens up at the top of your page. Offers usually take a few days to be approved.

  • If you're going to be filling out forms there is an easier and faster way of doing this and it's completely automated it's called RoboForm . What you do is plug in your info and roboform completes any form with the info you provide so filling out forms only take like a nano second.You can choose the free version or upgrade to the Pro version the free version should be sufficcent for your needs.
  • You should also delete your cookies after evey offer you comlpete, this is very important because this how the companies track you and if you have not deleted the cookies you may not get credit for completeing some of the offers : you can do this by going to tools/internet options/delete cookies , press o.k. to delete cookies. There is also an easier way to this, this is called ATF Cleaner and what it does is make it easier to clear your cookies with one push of a button after each offer, it's also free to download.
  • To complete an offer this means you have to go all the way through the survey until you reach the page with the Silver, Gold and Bronze offers, when you reach this page you don't have do anything more you can close the browser and go submit the completed offer.
  • When you sign up go to the forums there is plenty more helpful information.

The offers do tend to be a little repetitive and some of them followed the same formulae.. complete this offer, refer a friend and get either an iPod, laptop of Xbox 260. Other offers included surveys and other free websites that only require you to plug in your email address.

Their referral system, however is very attractive. Even if you’re not in the U.S, you’ll be allowed to make money by referring active users to Cashcrate. You’ll get $3 bonus whenever a new user you referred in the U.S completes an offer, which is rather nice.

Cashcrate will pay ou get 20% for first level referrals and 10% for 2nd level referrals. The amount of percentage you earn will depend on how many members you refer. The more members you refer, the higher your overall referral percentage will be.

I signed up with Cashcrate May 27 so I have not received a check yet but in three days my May earnings are $18.00 and I also have $37.85 pending. Pending ernings is the amount that has not been credited to my account yet. So I stand to earn $55.85 in just three days work. When I recieve my check I'll be posting it here for everyone to see.

Bottom Line:

Cashcrate isn’t a scam, although it might seem like one at first glance. I would suggest spending some time in their forums, if you want to learn more about their program. This particular section of their forum offers payment proofs and testimonials so it’ll be great place to start.

If you’re not in the U.S but are willing to work hard at getting referrals, you can start by signing up with Cashcrate. The returns are justified because you won’t be doing anything at all. It’s very much a passive process. Refer some users based in the U.S and they’ll do all the work for you, while you take a cut of their earnings. Sounds good doesn't it?

    I actually love the RoboForm software myself. I use it all of the time and it takes all the menial everyday tasks that I have to perform on my computer daily and shortens them extremely! What once took me fifteen minutes to complete now takes me only one second because RoboForm does the same task with just one click. In fact I wrote a Report about a lot of RoboForm’s capabilities for use that aren’t even touched on in the User’s Manual for RoboForm. You can get that Report here:!.html
