With other "survey style" websites, you'll spend countless hours filling in NO bullet after NO bullet only to find that at the end you are required to complete as many as 10 trial offers in order to gain credit for anything. In the end, you're lucky if you break even.
So far, I've spent about 30 minutes a day for the past three days with Cash Crate doing about 10-15 offers per day and have already been credited with $24.05. If you figure that into an hourly rate, that's just over $16 an hour. Most of their free offers range in the $0.40 to $1.50 range, while some of the more in-depth offers can pay out as much as $45 (a Vonage trial). The majority of the offers do not require a credit card, but a few of the pricier ones do. However, if you put your mind to it, you can easily finish a number of the free offers in a row and rack up quite a bit of change right away.
Apparently the real money from Cash Crate comes from their amazing referral service. Since I've only been on a short time, I haven't had the opportunity to take advantage of any referrals (HINT, HINT!), but check this out: Right off the bat, for every person that you refer (First Level), you receive a 20% commission of their earnings plus a $3 bonus as soon as they earn their first $10. In turn, for every person THEY end up referring (Second Level), you will end up receiving a 10% commission of their earnings as well.
And the more people you refer, the better your commissions are. Check this out:
One of the main complaints I've heard from people who have tried their luck at other GPT websites is that even when they complete their offers, they never end up receiving credit or a payout for them. There are a number of ways you can better arm yourself for the battle of confirming your offers:
All in all, Cash Crate is a lot easier to use than it seems. It's by far the most user friendly and rewarding GPT website around right now and the best part is that almost anyone that browses the internet can join.
Since one of the goals of this blog is to earn money to support myself on tour, I'll regularly post my earnings. You can help me out by clicking any of the Cash Crate links in this post and signing up! Thanks!
