And do it in 3 hours or less!
The first 2 ways require some “investment” money, but the last step is TOTALLY free.
Early last Fall I earned $150 in Spa Rewards from a Walgreens Wyeth brand promotion. Since I had coupons, I actually spent nothing out of pocket; and due to some problems that Wyeth had with the spa companies, it eventually resulted in people getting a $150 prepaid Visa card. I had been anticipating its arrival for months and have had a list of things I’ve been wanting/needing to buy for quite some time. However, I thought, since this $150 was basically free, perhaps I can “invest” some of this money and have a bit more as a result. So I did. I won’t be able to use it for a couple more months, but perhaps by then I will have prioritized the things we really need.
Here’s how I’m doubling the money…and here’s how you can, too!.
1. Open a new checking account with Bank of America:
Initial cost: $100 (you get to keep it in the new checking account)
You earn: $75
Total money you’re keeping here: $175
How to do it: Go to this webpage for more details. This promotion is valid through June 8, 2008, and they will deposit the $75 within 90 days. You can sign up online or at a local branch. If you don’t do it online, make sure you have the special promotion code (AOU260408). You can close the account after a specified time.
Catch: Only works if you don’t already have an account with Bank of America.
2. Join Cash Crate and participate in various trial offers.
Initial Cost: $0-$50
You earn: $10-$200 (I’ve earned about $120, and only spent $40)
Total money made here: it’s up to you, but reasonably speaking, you should be able to earn a net of $100 if you participate in several offers.
I am a member of Inbox Dollars and Cash Crate. I joined Inbox Dollars in October, but am only just now eligible to receive a check (you must make $30 before they’ll send a check). However, with Cash Crate, you only need to earn $10 to receive a check! It is REALLY easy to get $10 a month, even if you just do the 2 surveys per month. I’ve read of people that spend just an hour per day and make an net of ~$900 per month. Not sure if that’s for me, but it may be something you’d like to try…maybe to earn money for a special treat or gift. 🙂 Plus, you get some great stuff for some of the offers you sign up with.
Just sign up, go to the complete offers page, and sort the offers by highest pay out. Select appropriate offers and sign up! It’s that simple! Just click on the banner in this article.
(One nice thing with Inbox Dollars is that you can make (an tiny bit of) money just by reading paid e-mails every day, though.)
Catch: Make sure you cancel trial offers and read the fine print carefully.
3. Make $25 in Less than 3 Minutes!
If you don’t have time to do any of the others, I recommend doing this! I’d heard about it from multiple places, and moneysavingmom recently reviewed it on her site.
If you haven’t already signed up for Revolution Money Exchange, make sure to do it today–it’s free AND you get $25 for opening an account! But make sure you do it BY MAY 15!!! Just click on the green button above.
You can even request that they mail the check to you, for a fee of $2.50. Even then, you’re still getting over $20 for free. Or you can have them transfer the money to a bank account for free. (This company is similar to Pay Pal.)
Initial cost: $0
You earn: $25 (+ $10 per referral)
Total money you’re keeping here: $25 or more
All told, you can “invest” $150, and come out with at least $325 total.
*3 hours or less If you have high-speed internet access. Too bad you can only do these offers once! And sorry to those of you have already done these offers..
