An Honest 2016 Review Of CashCrate

What exactly is CashCrate (CC) all about? Well, as far as working people are concerned, it’s very much like various other online survey sites. There are companies that need opinions from consumers about products they are about to launch. Not all active consumers have access to a good platform for giving out those much needed opinions. That’s where CC comes in to fill that void.

The money that you make on CashCrate depends on how you work the system. You can make cash on the site in several ways. One way you can earn cash is by completing surveys. You can earn between $.50 and $.80 just by answering a few questions. Another way you can earn cash on CashCrate is by completing the offers that they suggest. The offers pay anywhere from a nickel to $30 or more. If those two options do not sound good to you, you can still make money by referring other people to the site. They pay up 20 percent of what your referrals make, and they give you a $3 bonus after your referral earns $10 for the first time.

NOTE: CC isn’t a regular marketing research firm, they only work together with actual market researching firms to help them conduct the online surveys.

One of the strongest points in favor of CC is that they’ve been around now for nearly 6 years. That’s a pretty long time in the scammer world, because phoneys never last that long. It’s a testament to their credibility.

Their website may remind a lot of people of Swagbucks, a sort of online rewards deal, where the members can earn money through various activities like playing games, shopping, and taking part in surveys.

How to Get Started on CashCrate

Getting started is pretty straightforward. I’ll lead you through a few basic details of getting setup and registered:

Signing up is your first requirement. They are offering new sign-ups a $1.00 bonus as an incentive to sign up. On the registration form you will be asked some questions about yourself, your income, your family, and a few other things. How you answer these questions creates your profile and determines the type of surveys they believe would be best for you.

After jotting down all your details and clicking on the ‘Join Now’ button you’ll be sent a confirmation email with a link to click on confirming it was you who signed up. Then you are ready to go and can begin answering surveys.

When you login you’ll be shown what offers they have for you. Keep in mind that these surveys are never going to make you rich, but they can be a nice little extra income for something so easy to do.

When it comes to being paid, you’ll have to reach their minimum amount of $20.00 before you can request a payout. You can have them send you a check that is processed by the 20th of the month after the month your earned it in. That means if you earn $250 in June and request your payout, the check will come in mid-July.

In June of 2012 they announced they were going to start offering PayPal payments to their members. This option is only available to ‘Silver+’ members (means you’ve cashed at least one of their checks).

When Do They Pay? How Do They Pay?

You have to earn a certain amount of money on the site before you can receive a payment. Fortunately, the threshold is only $20. You can get your money on the 21st of the month for cash that you made the previous month. They process their payments on the 15th.

Bronze members can request their funds on the 1st of the month, and the company may oblige.

How Do Points Work?

Points work the same way cash works. You earn points by playing games and completing offers, and then you use your points to get prizes like cameras and gaming consoles.

The New Crates game is fun for all. You spend five points to click a crate. You could win $1,000 instantly!

You have 2 ways of reaching Silver+ status –

1. Refer 50 new active members.
2. Earn $500 or more taking surveys, performing paid searches, winning contests, watching videos, and things like that.

Tips:

Take the highest paying surveys. The pay for surveys varies, so trying to select the ones that pay the most only makes good sense.

You’ll also find that there will be times when you take a very short survey and receive a nice payout. Then you also have times when you sit through an hour-long survey with little reward. It all comes out in the wash.

Who wouldn’t want to sit at home, in front of their computer in their PJ’s, and earn some quick cash? There are tons of Internet scams trying to profit off of people’s desire to do so, and lots of times it’s hard to distinguish legitimate opportunities from fake ones. The truth is that there is no easy way to make tons of extra money online. Nothing highly profitable is easy. That doesn’t mean there are no opportunities to earn money online, they’re just harder to find, and the rewards aren’t as high as you might like. A popular method of making extra money online is by taking surveys, and here are some of the best websites to join.

PineCone Research

If you can get a membership with PineCone Research, it’s your best opportunity to make extra cash online with surveys. PineCone Research is an “elite group that represents consumers nationwide,” and they limit the amount of members from different demographics. Every once and a while they will open registration to specific gender and age ranges. If they open your category, go ahead and sign up. PineCone surveys are about different consumer products, from snacks to laundry detergent to baby wipes and much more, and its clients are reputable, popular major manufacturers. Each survey takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. They’ll ask you questions, often about new product concepts. If they are interested in hearing more about your opinion, you’ll get sent a test product, which is a full-size version of the brand name product not yet available in stores. You’ll be asked to try it out in your home for a few weeks and then complete a new survey on your opinion of it. Not only is it a great way to score free stuff, you’ll earn $3 cash for each survey you complete. You’ll immediately receive a check in the mail or a deposit to your PayPal account, no waiting to accumulate any certain balance. Visit PineConeResearch.com for more information.

i-Say by Ipsos

With i-Say surveys, you will receive a number of points for every survey you complete. The length of the survey corresponds with the point value, so that the longer the survey takes to complete the more points you’ll receive. Each survey will earn you anywhere from 5 points and up, with many surveys earning 45 to 150 points. There is a great rewards catalog with lots of gift cards or merchandise available. You can also spend points on sweepstakes, but you’re better off redeeming them for a PayPal transfer of $15 cash once you hit 1500 points, or a $10 Amazon gift card once you hit 1000 points. Visit i-Say.com for more information.

Survey Spot

Survey Spot is another website that works like i-Say surveys. You earn points, and then redeem them for cash or other merchandise. You can take as many surveys as you want to, but the average user takes about 24 surveys per month. You will also be entered into sweepstakes for every survey you take. Visit SurveySpot.com for more information.
