Now, I know you’ve heard of all the quick and easy scams out there in the internet marketplace. Perhaps you’ve even fallen for one or two. It’s a shame; there certainly are many unscrupulous people and companies out there ready to take advantage of you. But there are also a number of ways you CAN make money on the internet. None of these are “get rich quick” schemes and you can also learn more about them through Douglas Williams reviews as well. But they ARE proven, easy ways that you can make a little extra cash or even get free gifts to keep or give away, without leaving the computer desk. Since you’re on AC I won’t mention the moneymaking opportunities here… hope you’re already cashing in on these!
MyPoints.com is the number one way this scribbler likes to make money and rake in the free gifts on the internet. There is NO INVESTMENT required. No sign on fee, no monthly fee, no money at all is required to make money here. All you have to do is read your emails. That’s it. You get points for each email you open, between 5 and 20 per email. The emails are special promotional offers from companies who WANT you to spend your money on their products, but no one says you have to. In fact, you do not even have to wait for the page to fully load when you click on the link…the points will credit to your account within 24 hours after you click. Should you decide to take advantage of the offer in the email, you will usually get a discounted price, so if it’s something you need, great, go ahead. You will also get large amounts of points for each purchase. (Make sure and either log onto your MyPoints account or directly by clicking the link in the email before you purchase the item to get credit) Or, just take the email points and go! You can also receive points for referring others to the site. Also, don’t forget–anytime you are about to purchase something online, go to the site and see if it’s something you can get points for first! You can’t get the points if you don’t click through their site or emails.
Now comes the fun part—cashing in. When you have accumulated enough points to redeem for a gift (a minimum of 500 points is required) you can go to the website and browse the gift categories. My personal favorite right now is gas station gift cards. With fuel prices the way they are these days, free gas is good gas. You can get a 10.00 gas card for as little as 1550 points. They are currently good at Shell stations nationwide. Free gas! For clicking on email links. Sheesh. In this day and age, we can certainly use that.
If you can’t wait and want to redeem for a gift as soon as possible, you can always make a donation to the Red Cross of 500 points or 1000 points. This funds their programs and gives you a good feeling at the same time. You’ll need at least 1400 points to get 10.00 gift cards to places like Bass Pro Shop, Gap, or JC Penney. And, by the way, there is NO shipping or handling charge to have the cards sent to you. It’s really free!
If you are a real points hoarder, you can get the big goodies. There are rewards redeemable for big gift cards good for frequent flier miles and hotel stays. You can also get 50.00 and 100.00 gift cards to lots of stores. There is really no limit.
So far, I have redeemed over 22,000 points, most of which were just from reading emails over the last 5 years or so. I’ve gotten Wal Mart and Target gift cards, a few small gifts, and a lot of the aforementioned free gas cards. I have never been asked for a dime from this company. They rock
Join mypoints.com. Tell them I sent you! My email address with them is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
They’ll even give you points for filling out a survey that is custom-designed to send you only emails you’ll be interested in. If what you’re interested in is points, however, make sure to check all of the available choices. I get an average of 3-5 emails per day, and it takes approximately 10 seconds per email to read and click.
