Online Communities Part 5 - Make $$$ from your Couch

Your basic day in the life of me (Stephanie) is get up, go to work, go to the gym, have dinner, get ready for the gym the next day, prepare lunch for the next day, crash. So, in this difficult economy when I found myself wanting to make more money, but needing something really flexible, I started taking Online Surveys, and getting paid to read emails. If you have not created a separate email account for your coupons and deals yet, you might want to do so now. You could even create a separate one for just surveys and paid emails - like surveys for Stephanie @ I keep mine all together in one email address with my coupons and deals to make my life easier. Let me introduce you to a few that you can start with:

Send Earnings:
Usually Offers a $5 sign on bonus, you get paid 3 cents per email that you click on and read, more if you take advantage of any special offers, and usually $1.00 for surveys. In about 6 months I have earned $16.00 for just the paid emails and sign on bonus. You must have $30.00 in your account to cash out.

Viva Research Panel:
Pays $5 to $75.00 per survey - Sign up here

Zoom Panel:
Earn points towards cashing out for products like a Bluetooth Headset, a Kitchen Aid, etc. I am currently banking my points -maybe to do some Christmas shopping? One thing I like about Zoom Panel is that they give 5 points if you do not qualify for a survey.

There are a few to start with so you are not overwhelmed. What I prefer to do is click on the paid emails and take surveys while I watch TV at night. It's nice to be able to earn some extra money or free things for my family while not having to leave the house or spend real time away from home. Surveys and Paid emails are very flexible and really work for me. I hope they work for you too!


  1. I received my first payment from Send Earnings. It is definitely a good, legit program. :-)

  2. Thanks for the feedback! I'm still waiting to cash out my first paidinboxdollars. I was thinking of waiting 'til Xmas shopping time.
