I would say that the majority of the tasks you can complete are free, however there are a few that involve getting money back following a purchase or after using your credit card to enroll in a free trial somewhere. Here is an example of a paid trial offer I did: I signed up to a free trial of Blockbuster (similar to Netflix where they send people DVDs in the mail) and received $11 for this. I then canceled my subscription just before the free 30-day trial was over.
There are numerous tasks which are much smaller and pay less - for instance, I signed up for a free sample of liquid fabric softener and got $0.50. It all adds up. I personally use an e-mail address for doing the offers that isn't my main email address. Basically, you're giving away your contact information for money with these offers, so you can expect you'll get a lot of e-mail ads.
I like Do What You Love And Earn Cash, since you can earn cash by performing these simple tasks while you are watching television.
The Real Money is in Referring Other People
You can do surveys and offers until you're blue in the face, but there is obviously a limit to how many that you can do in a short time period. There are folks that do make $100-200 each month just by doing the various tasks available.
The real money is with referrals, however. The referral program is pretty robust. Once you start out (and have no referrals), you earn 20% of what people you refer earn (1st tier), and you also make 10% of anything their referrals earn (2nd tier). After you work your way up, these percentages gradually rise to 30% (1st tier) and 20% (2nd tier).
Obviously, the people you refer need to use Do What You Love And Earn Cash for what it's intended for. If you simply refer a bunch of people you know and they create accounts but don't do any surveys or offers, you're not really going to earn anything from them.
After your account balance reaches $20, Do What You Love And Earn Cash sends you a check the following month. After at least one check payment has been sent, you'll have the option to change to being paid via PayPal.
This site will not make you wealthy, however this is another tool to add to your own collection of online income resources.
For those who have a blog, website or social networking account that has anything to do with earning money, saving money, or personal finance, it may be worth introducing Do What You Love And Earn Cash to your visitors as a way to pick up some referrals.
When you run this app, you participate in a study conducted by Northeastern University. The goal of the study is to find out how people use their cell phones during a natural disaster.
The study donates $3 to food banks in New Jersey and New York City for each person who completes the study.
This app includes a survey about the people you called and texted with before, during, and after Hurricane Sandy. The survey also has questions about your other experiences during the storm and your cell phone use in general. The survey takes about 10 minutes.
At the end of the survey, the app shows you a profile of your calling and texting during the week of Hurricane Sandy. The app also summarizes your phone's call and text logs for the study.
All information is anonymous – no names, phone numbers, or email addresses are collected for the study. There is no way you or any of your contacts can be identified in the information sent to the study.
To participate, you must:
* be age 18 or older,
* live in the USA,
* have call and text logs that include the period during Hurricane Sandy, and
* run the app on your Android smartphone while you are connected to the Internet.
Your participation is voluntary, and you do not have to answer any question you do not want to answer.
All information you give will be used for research only.
The food banks that will receive the donations are the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, FoodBank of Ocean and Monmouth Counties, and City Harvest.
