Last year, we paid for our entire Christmas by using money earned online from survey sites. I’m sure you’ve all seen the different ads where you can earn money by doing online surveys. I was always very skeptical, but on a recommendation from a good friend, I got started.
Using surveys, you won’t “get rich quick”, but it will be a nice extra that builds slowly over time. I do the surveys that I’m sent and then slowly, bit by bit, it ads up over the year into something that I can cash out for a great Christmas present. Maybe of the survey sites allow you to redeem for Amazon giftcards, Paypal, Check, or other various giftcards. I’m going to highlight a few of my favorite survey sites below.
Already, I have over $100 in our Christmas fund from just Opinion Outpost. Opinion Outpost pays cash for surveys that you complete. The money adds up quickly and painlessly! I can usually do the surveys during naptime or in the evening after I’ve put the kids to bed. Some of the surveys even ask for my kids input! There are many as well that offer in home product testing and that is always a blast! We’ve tested things from baby wipes and diapers, to food products, toothpaste, dog treats, and more!
Here are some survey sites that I recommend joining. You don’t have to join all of them, but the more you join, the more surveys you receive and the more cash adds up!
I am also huge on Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a fantastic program. You earn swagbucks from searches that you do using Swagbucks as a search engine. I’ve earned countless Amazon giftcards, iTunes Giftcards, Starbucks Giftcards, and more, with little effort! Then, I wait until Amazon has something fantastic on sale. You can earn more swagbucks, too, by referring your friends. When you refer someone, each swagbuck that they earn, you also earn, so your points will accumulate very fast!
When you save all year on your survey sites, buy giftcards with your swagbucks, and wait for great sales, you’ll find yourself being able to afford a lot more than you thought was possible. There’s still several months, so start today and see if you can afford a great Christmas without paying anything!
