Get a free laptop: we did, and you can too! Here's proof!

Get a free laptop: we did, and you can too! Here’s proof!

We recently got a free mini laptop/netbook. Yes, it was completely free. At absolutely no charge to us whatsoever. And you can get one free too!

How did we do it? We saved up our Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks!

In less than 2 months time, we were able to have enough saved up to purchase a shiny new mini laptop/netbook. You can see it here!



If you’re not familiar with Swagbucks, let me briefly explain it to you. It is totally free to sign up.

Swagbucks: You can search the internet and get free gift cards and prizes just for searching online AND for referring your friends. You get 3 free swag bucks just to sign up!

You can get free gift cards from places like Amazon (this is what we get), Target, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, Subway, and Macy’s, just to name a few! You earn “swagbucks” by doing your regular internet searches…. (the same searches you do every day when looking for stuff online) and then redeem them for free gift cards. As an example, 45 swag bucks = $5 Amazon gift card.

The best part is Swagbucks uses Google and Ask.com for searches…. PLEASE NOTE: You should also know that at this time (April 2009), all searches on Swagbucks are UNFILTERED. Swagbucks has told me they will be implementing a “safe search” / filtered search option soon, but this has not yet occurred. So again, all searches on Swagbucks are UNFILTERED. Keep this in mind when signing up, especially if you have children in your house.

Start getting free money just for searching the web! Sign up for Swagbucks here

Get paid to view advertisements online – tip to earn more money

We’ve had a great response from our readers regarding YouData, so I just wanted to post a quick follow up message to those who have signed up with YouData…. (If you’re not familiar with YouData, it is a free site where you get paid to view advertisements online and then get paid via Paypal every week – you can read more about it in our post here: Get paid to view advertisements online)

  • TIP: You need to make sure you log into YouData every week to see if there are new ads to view. They do not automatically send you an email telling you there are new ads. If you haven’t logged in recently, you probably have new ads waiting for you to view….. what are you waiting for? Go check your YouData account today, and start getting more money to read ads!

If you haven’t signed up for YouData yet, it’s free to sign up, and you can sign up here!

Get paid to view advertisements online

Get paid to view advertisements online – Get free money just to watch advertisements!

Advertisements are everywhere these days, and we’re forced to watch them, for free! But I discovered a place where you can actually get paid to watch advertisements online! It’s called YouData, and it pays you money to watch advertisements!

You select your interests and fill out your profile, and you will view advertisements targeted to your interests and profile. And the best part is you get PAID to view the advertisements. I’ve been doing this for several months now and really like the site. I’ve been very impressed with the advertisements, and even learned about some cool websites I never knew existed!

They pay via Paypal EVERY SINGLE WEEK! As long as you view advertisements, you get paid. It takes only a few seconds to view the advertisements, and I recommend that you log in every week to see what new advertisements are available to view. Now, you will not get rich off this, but for a few seconds, it is easy money.

Can you make $20 a week doing paid surveys online? Reader questions!

Can you make $20 a week doing paid surveys online?

We get questions from our readers (and sometimes receive the same questions from different readers!), so we decided it would be useful to post some reader questions. That way everyone can benefit from the answers!

In regard to online paid surveys: Have you found that it is it possible to spend less than 5 hours per week and earn $20?

Absolutely, and it is possible to earn much more money than that doing paid surveys! But the exact amount you earn on paid surveys will depend greatly on the week. Some weeks you will get lots of surveys. Other weeks, not so many surveys. If you are serious about making money with online paid surveys, you must be sure to fill out your user profiles COMPLETELY at each survey site. The paid survey sites send more paid surveys if your user profile is completely filled out. (Some paid survey sites have several user profile sections and several “initial” surveys to fill out, but it will pay off in the end if you complete all of these surveys!)

Inviting your family and friends helps a lot in making more money on paid survey sites. On a lot of the paid survey sites you can earn a certain percent of what your friends earn, or earn money by referring them to the survey site. Also, it can take awhile to start receiving paid surveys, so please be patient. But, in general, the more paid surveys you do, the more invitations you will get for paid surveys. I have been with some of these paid survey sites for close to 5 – 10 years now, and I receive more paid surveys now than before… so persistence pays off.

An easy way to make more money off online survey and get paid to read email sites!

Did you know there’s a super easy way to make money off the paid survey sites and the get paid to read email sites?

All you have to do is refer your friends and family! Most of the sites give you a referral bonus for referring friends and family, or you can get a certain percent of their earnings! So, once you’ve signed up for the survey sites, log into your survey accounts, and send your friends and family specialized emails through the survey websites, inviting them to join. (Be sure to invite them directly through the survey websites, using their email forms – That way you will be sure to get properly credited with any referrals.)

For your convenience, here are quick links to the best survey/get paid to read email sites we’ve found:
