Super Points

One of the things I do to fill my time, is try to find websites that will give out rewards or payments for my time. My favorite is Gather, which is kind of like a mix between a blog, and a social network like Facebook. For 2008, I earned $1400 there. For 2009, it was down, but I still earned around $850-900. In fact, from January to May of 2009, I saved all my earnings, and took the kids camping up to Mackinaw City for 4 days.

Anyway, I found a new site. I'm not sure yet how great it will turn out to be, but if you like earning sites, check out Superpoints.

So far, I have seen that you earn points when you shop online, as well as from survey's, and playing a clicking game. There is also a search function, but I haven't tried it yet.

Points wise, you get around 500 for signing up, which is worth a $5 Amazon gift card. They do have a minimum cash out of 2500 at first, then it goes down to 1000, then down to just 500 points, based on levels of interaction. It took me all of signing up and filling out my profile to get to the 1000 point cash out level. That means as soon as I hit 1000 points, I can cash out for a $10 gift card.

Check it out if you've got time!

***Edited to add:

Well, thanks to some active referrals, I bumped up to the level where I only needed to have earned 500 points to go ahead and cash out. I cashed in for a $5 Quiznos gift card, since there is one right across the street from where Nick works. I'll let you know when I receive it, so everyone knows how long it takes!

Have you heard of Bzzagent.com? It is a site where you sign up and they send you free products to try out and then all you have to do is tell people about it and write a report. For every report you write or survey you take you earn points at MyPoints.com and can use them for gift cards at tons of restaurants and stores. So not only do you get to earn giftcards but you are also getting free samples of stuff : )

Yep, I use BzzAgent! I'm on a campaign right now for eyelash serum and mascara. That's a fun site, along with Houseparty.com for fun prooducts.

OOOH, what a great post! I signed up at Superpoints via your link. I also signed up at Gather - can you tell me more about it if you get the chance? I haven't had a lot of time to look it over so I'm a little confused as to how it works.

I'm also super stoked over the Bzzagent site as well. Yay for new discoveries! Thanks!

At Gather, you earn points (they won't say how exactly points are earned) by being active in the site- making friends connections, reading posts, viewing videos, sharing posts, photos, and videos, etc.

The points equal (roughly) 62.5 points to $1.
