- Put flyers up on grocery store and community bulletin boards

- Pass out flyers door-to-door in your neighborhood
- Offer cash, contests, or other incentives for signing up
- Show people your checks or post them on your blog/website
- Create a stamp or stickers with your link to put on all your outgoing snail mail (I buy blank labels for about $5 and print my own)
There are a lot of websites out there offering ways to earn money for taking surveys and completing offers. I’ve signed up for just about every one of them. Many are unimpressive, but some have amazing opportunities where you can actually earn money and do it quite easily. Here I discuss the various survey sites and the best opportunities I have come across.

Inbox Dollars: Once you hit $30, you can request a check (check is the only option for payments). There is a specific payment schedule and it can take about 2 months to receive your first check. After you get the first one, you are considered a Gold Member and subsequent checks process in a week or less.
Mindfield: You only have to accumulate $5 to cash out. PayPal takes 5-10 business days to process. Checks take 1-2 business days and are generally received quickly, but the site says to allow up to 4-6 weeks. One thing I must mention is that even though they have a much lower cash out amount,it can take just as long as some of the other sites to accumulate because they don't have very many surveys available.
Squishy Cash: $20 to cash out – either by check or PayPal. Both are paid at the end of each month and can take up to 4 weeks to process.

It's simple, all you have to do is sign up and start searching. For every 2 searches you make on Bing, you get 1 credit. There is also a special offer every day and every few weeks other offers show up with ways to earn more credits. Save up your credits and redeem them for a prize. For me, I choose a $5 Starbucks gift card and receive one about every 30 days. While they don't offer cash prizes, it's an easy perk to get a free drink at Starbucks every month just for using Bing as my search engine. If coffee isn't your thing, there are a bunch of other gift cards available like Amazon, Groupon, Redbox, etc.
While I still prefer Google, Bing has proven to be a good search engine with similar results - and I love the beautiful changing pictures they use on the home page. Interested in joining? Click this link to get started:
If you're already a member of Bing Rewards, I'd love to hear your feedback! Please leave me a comment below.
If you do sign up, email me your refer-a-friend link and I'll post it here to help you earn more credits. My email address is email@example.com.

I started reading blogs and signing up on every site anyone would recommend. I have discovered that many of them don't pay very well or have weird points systems that don't translate to very much cash. Are they scams? No. Every one I have come across has offered some kind of incentive for completing surveys, but whether that incentive is worth the time invested is another matter. For me, I stick to three sites that I use regularly: FusionCash, Cash Crate, and Inbox Dollars. I check others occasionally, but the bulk of the money I make is with these three sites. And the first month I started using them, I made $150 between the three.
One thing I would advise to stay away from is any company that requires you to pay to join. It may sound like a good investment, but why bother paying to join something when there are so many options out there that are free? It may seem like a shady business, but it's really not. Survey companies just want your opinion so that they can shape their products and get the most out of their marketing. Some offers that can be completed are a way to try and get you to buy products or sign up for other services, but if you stick to the 100% free offers and complete the tasks as directed, you can make a great supplemental income without having to spend a dime!
