Surveys and Money News

August 15th, 2007 at 11:13 am

Spending Yesterday: $6.20: Lunch.

I couldn't help that. I drove straight to work from my mom's house...2.5 hours away, and I wasn't about to bang around the kitchen at 4.30 AM trying to find something to take to work. Then figure out how to keep it fresh during the drive, so the "healthy choice" cafeteria meal (portion controlled spaghetti with garlic, zucchinni, fresh tomatoes, basil and red pepper flakes) did it for me.

Reading other people's blogs here makes me wonder how big these suvey sites are! I am the only person I know who does this...until you guys! I've been a member of them for 2-4 years (Pinecone, GTM, SurveySavvy, Lightspeed, OTX, Keynote, Buzzback, My2Cents, ePoll, and until recently, the Kraft food community)...I love collecting the Amazon giftcards from some, and Paypal payments from others. It's chump change, but hey, it counts.

In bad money news, got a letter from ATT yesterday saying that "one of my plans" is going to be more expensive soon. They don't tell me which one (cell? internet? landline?), or by how much. Just a vague, "hey, we want more of your money", and a catch of..."hm, maybe you should call us and see if we can bundle services for you". Makes me angry.

In good money news, I got a check from AAA as part of their profit sharing program (who knew)...$60. Wahoo! Shame I've cancelled my insurance through them and am moving to Liberty Mutual (combined auto and home savings of $200 a year). But I will still gladly deposit that check Smile Thanks, guys!

    I just wanted to tell you that I admire your EF! Funny compliment, haha. Considering you are only a year older than me! I wish I had your financial wisdom!

    On the surveys .... which sites do you prefer? So far I am only doing Send Earnings and Inbox Dollars. Supposedly I get money to do their surveys. Have you ever done them? I'll let you know how it works out (i.e., if I actually receive the money)!

    You didn't mention American Consumer Opinion Panel. They pay straight cash, no points. No referral needed. Or NFOMySurvey, which does require a referral and if you want one I'd send you one. They are points for cash or prizes.

    PFP--I've done SendEarnings and InboxDollars, gotten paid, too, but not really with their surveys, with the paid to try stuff, but you have to be careful with that because some of the companies forget to cancel you when you call them and continue to charge. I decided those two were more trouble than they were worth. Go with the ones she mentions above and the two I've added here.

    Cool! Thanks for the heads up. I will have to check those out! I think I would prefer to be paid straight cash Smile
