Earning cash online

Post by Luriden » Mon Apr 03, 2006 8:02 pm

Does anyone remember the site where you earned fractions of a dollar (more like a nickle or penny) by clicking ads or something, and it would add up to a check? I think it came with software or something that records the number of clicks you've made. I remember seeing something about it before, and I think it was even posted here. Does anyone know the site I'm talking about, and know if it's legit?

I had some software that would display ads every so often that added up to a total and they sent you a check. Looking back though, it was probably spyware or something.

There's a place called EmailCash that claims to pay you for doing surveys and reading emails. Dunno if it's an aussie only thing though. Nor do I know if you actually see any real money out of it.

If anyone does find one, please state if you can do it in other countries too. Not just US. Not because I'm cheap or anything, I have a full time job. But living expenses are going up and it would be nice to have an extra $30 or so just to pay my internet bill. :lol:

Most of them are scams. I tried sixquestions.com and they would allow you to earn points by doing on-line offers, etc. I had earned enough points for two $20 best buy gift cards and they would not ever send them. I tried contacting them about 10 times, I even contacted the BBB on them (I was not the only person getting burned). It didn't cost me money but it cost me time.

I had tried another one awhile back and they wouldn't actually tell you how much you earned until the end of the month. I used there banner software faithfully for a month and I ended up earning .80 cents. After e-mailing them bitching they had some canned answer about being a slow month etc, but it was just a scam.

Now there was one of them that was legit I think it was called alladvantage.com. I actually earned $34 within about a month and a half and I got a check. They ended up going under though in a short time.


All in all ID avoid them. None of them pay you enough money to be worth your time, and most of them will probably end up not paying you at all.

the way i set it up is with an egold account for payouts, and i didn't set up a site (yet) and put the site name when i signed up to "none"

edit: sorry didnt realize referral links weren't allowed to be posted :oops:
I just took a look at that. Do you have to have a website though? It looks like a traffic exchange program, where they advertise on your site. I don't have a website. :?

There used to be a lot of them, most was scams. There was one that I had called alladvantage that actually paid me $30 after 2 months. Another one that I had (forget name) paid like 80 cents after 2 months. All in all not worth the trouble IMO.

There is mainly one site I stick with. You won't become rich from it but an extra $20-$100 month is pretty nice.
