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!
