Making money while you sleep – A “To Do” List for when you go ni-night

You want passive? I’ve GOT Passive! Stuff you can click on, set it and forget it, and then go ni-night. Or go out for the day, or just sit on your @$$ and stare into space.

I use the Vivaldi Browser for all of these passive activities. It seems to run smoother, and it prevents all of those annoying pop-ups that some of the videos have.
In the morning, or at lease once a day, I use the free version of cCleaner, and then restart my computer. Yes, you will have to log back into all of the sites, but it really cleans up your computer and the memory, so it is not bogged down from all the crap you’ve been running. Then, I open all of these passive gems again so they run for the day, while I work on other things, like my To Do List, eBay, mTurk, or just plop my butt on the couch and watch TV. (hours upon hours of Big Brother live feeds…)

Please note, that depending on your computers speed and memory, you may not be able to open everything I have here. I can because I have a super-duper-fast- desktop PC. Also an older laptop, and older desktop, an android phone and 4 Fire Kindles. The Kindles I got dirt cheap on eBay, because they have cracked screens. I did not care about the cosmetics, I just needed them so I could run PerkTV all day and night.They have already paid for themselves with Walmart gift cards. Of course, I place my FREE Walmart orders thru Swagbucks, so I earn SB back on the $$ I “spent” but not REALLY spent, because I earned the FREE Walmart gift cards! It’s a beautiful little circle. And then, my phone runs the Swagbucks apps if I’m not yakking on it.

True, all of these things listed below are not COMPLETELY passive, you do have to check on things here and there, to make sure they are still going, but it is VERY surprising how quickly these all together add up! Watch your earnings soar, even if you don’t want to sit in front of a computer clicking all day and night! You can easily make enough to pay for Christmas. All of it. Even the food and booze and stuff.

Important note! Some of these links will not work for everyone. Sometimes a site will disable certain video features for a while, especially if you are using multiple sites. This is usually because of the 3rd party verification service they are using, not the site itself. Basically, you will be temporarily blocked for a while. But changing your IP address usually will clear that up. Sometimes not. You can also just back off on some of the videos for a while. Just don’t change your IP too often, as it may flag your account. However, I have found that since I switched to the Vivaldi Brower, I’m having less issues with videos not being available to me. Could be a fluke, or… it could not be.

Pick ‘n choose from the easy stuff posted below, or try to do all of them. Scared money is no money, I say. But I am not responsible If a site bans you. I don’t think they would, since technically you are not using any scripts or bots — things like that — just running a ton of sh!t at once. If they do ban your account, dust yourself off and obtain a new IP address, and a new email. Oh…and a phone number if it requires it. Find out what pissed them off, and don’t do it ever again. 🙂 A new IP address seems to fix a lot of things, so always try that first. (Cough-cough, being put in “time-out” (twice!) from watching too many windows of EngageMe.TV.)

Remember — NO AD BLOCKS, or these beautifully passive links to FREE money and gift cards will not credit properly. Also, make sure you are logged in to the individual accounts.

Hints, Tips, Tricks, Shortcuts, Hacks, Passive &/or Easy earnings for some of your favorite GPT sites!

jetskiWhatever this word is you like to use, below you will find an accelerated way of achieving your money-earning goal at some of the more common beer-money (or bill-paying money) sites. This will be updated periodically. Please add your own way of getting quick or easy rewards in the comments!

Updated:  October 5, 2016

 

Cash Crate:

  • Check under the “Videos & More” tab –> “SuperRewards.” Not every day, but several days a week you will find “SuperRewards Video.” Start this and let it play passively. Even though you will see a green “next” button, you do not need to to click it. The videos will auto-play and advance to the next. It says you can earn .15 cents, but I’ve earned much more. Keep refreshing until it runs out. Make sure you don’t have an ad-blocker on.
  • Of course, also do the green “Check In” button first on the home page, to get a quick 3 cents.

Any site that utilizes EngageMe.TV:  Passive videos! Just open and let play in a small window next to whatever else you are working on.  You will find it at these sites:

  • PrizeRebel:  Offer Walls –> Adscend  –  Pays .5 cents
  • Instagc:  –> AdWall  –  Pays .69 cents
  • Earnably:  Offer Walls –> AdWall  –  Pays .55 cents
  • EarnHoney:  Offers –> Adscend Media  –  Pays .75 cents
  • Grabpoints:  Complete offers –> Offer Walls –> AdWall –  Pays .5 cents (My referral code is DLB5BFC if you are so inclined)
  • PerkTV:  Under “Offers” from the home page. Pays 5 points. $ amount varies, depending on what you cash out for.
  • ClixSense:  Offers –> Adscend  –  Pays 1 cent + if you complete the Daily Checklist, you will earn an additional 7% for regular member or 16% as a Premium member!!

Any site that utilizes nCrave or Encrave videos:  More passive videos! Just look for the ones that you can auto-play, indicated by a swirling arrow in the bottom left of the thumbnail picture.  You will find it at these sites:

InboxDollars TV:

  • Not completely passive, but you can do this via desktop or their mobile app. I average about $1.50 a day. Every once in a while it asks you if you are still watching. As soon as you click “continue” it goes on earning. I’ve on a few occasions even earned over $2 in a day, if I stay on top of it. make sure your ad blocker is not on, or anything that can be perceived as an ad blocker.

I use a Chrome extension called “Better, Faster, Private Browsing.” It helps a lot!

  • Swagbucks doesn’t tell me I have an ad blocker installed, and the videos play better and quicker, without so much lag and drag.
  • Please note, EarnHoney videos will not work with this extension installed.

I use a Chrome extension called “SpecificTIME.”

  • This is awesome so you don’t forget things! Use this for ANY webpage you want to open periodically. For example, I use it to automatically open the Swagbucks Blog page once an hour to see if I have won the hourly 1000 SB. (No, I’ve not won yet.) And while I’m there, I do a search or two, to hopefully win some more SB.
  • Use your imagination on what you could use this extension for. But be careful! If you use it to open certain videos that you know will play automatically. <cough-cough> it could potentially be considered a bot. So proceed with caution.
  • I sometimes use this extension to remember to check AdBistro on EarnHoney. This only is available intermittently throughout the day. Once I see they are posted, and keep doing it until they run out.
  • Use this to remind you to do searches on any site that pays you. Such as Swagbucks, InboxDollars, SendEarnings, etc.

Swagbucks:

  • Check the “Discover All Offers” section a lot! But sort it by SB Min-Max. You will often find things that are quick and easy to do. Such as Delicious Food Instagram Pics. This is a very quick slide show that you can click-click-click right through, without waiting for the next page to load. Sometimes there are some quick videos.
  • Check out my Quick Playlists. There are no more than 4.5 minutes each. You can let them auto-play, or click on the next one once you see the check-mark to get through them faster. Run this in a small window next to whatever else you are working on. It will go pretty fast. If you find the last video is missing, hit Ctrl-0 to bring the screen to 100%.
  • Toolbar TV on the Swagbutton is now PASSIVE! This makes up for lots of things they have done in recent months to piss me off. And to think I was contemplating breaking up with Swagbucks…

QuickRewards:

  • You are missing out on some good video money if you aren’t taking advantage of their Daily Clicks. While this is not passive, it is MUCH better paying than many of the other GPT sites, paying between .5 cents to 2 cents per video — not a group of videos. You must wait for the video to show completed before going on to the next. So, what I do is I’ve installed Auto Refresh so I can go on about my business while I wait for it to credit. Some of their videos will work with the Better, Faster, Private Browsing extension installed (such as Refugee and Cadaliac) and others won’t (such as Buzzworthy 1 cent videos).

EarnHoney: 

  • Just join the site! You are missing out on at least $5 a day if you don’t by just playing PASSIVE VIDEOS!
  • The trick is, getting it to work correctly. Make sure you have no ad blockers, or anything that can be perceived as an ad blocker. Try several different browsers until you find one that works. On my desktop it only works in the Edge browser, and on my laptop it only works in Chrome. Again…no ad blockers. And it will NOT work with the Better, Faster, Private Browsing extension enabled!
  • Check for AdBistro throughout the day. Keep refreshing until they are all gone. This is an easy 1.5 HD for each one you do, back to back to back.
  • Check for the the surveys. EVERY one! It is not like other sites that will have you spend 15 minutes and then tell you you are not qualified. Then you will receive 1 HD just for trying, as long as you’ve not exhausted your compensation. Your compensations refill each day, or with each successful survey. Earn an additional 50% of the survey by watching 10 videos daily. You have to watch the videos before taking the surveys to receive the bonus.
  • Survey Badges: Earn badges which will qualify you for even more lucrative surveys. You will receive 5 HD$ immediately for each badge that you complete.
  • Every time you cash out, press the blue button that says “Post to Facebook.” Then you receive an additional 5%. I love, love, LOVE this site! Sign up here!

AutoSurf automatically rotate advertised websites in your web browser. Just open these in a small window and let it run all day. You get paid very small amounts for letting it run. But you do nothing. It is completely passive. Sites that have AutoSurf:

Instagc:  They have passive auto-play videos. Run these every day, all day! Refresh and do again when they run out.

PerkTV:  Passive auto play videos you can run simultaneously on up to 5 devices! Desktop, mobile or tablet (including Kindle)!

mTurk:  To earn a great deal of money at mTurk, you are going to want to install some scripts. Search the internet for tons of tips and forums for Amazon Mechanical Turk. However, I will tell you what I use. Since I use Chrome, I’ve installed TamperMonkey. Once that was installed I found a lot of scripts at GreasyFork. My most used ones are TurkMaster (this will auto-capture your favorite hits so you don’t have to search for them) and Que Order Fix (puts your hits in the order they will expire). I will let you do your own research, but my earnings more than doubled once I installed these scripts.

Qmee:

  • Search and shop online as usual with Google, Amazon, Yahoo, Bing, eBay and your other favorite sites. You don’t need to do anything different – just sit back, relax, search and shop online, and get cash rewards. I always forget about it until I earn something. I wrote about it here.

Sign up for 1Q

  • It is just like it sounds. Answer 1 question by text and immediately have $0.25 deposited into your PayPal account! I just discovered this recently and I love it so far!! No spam from them!

Apps: These are MEANT to be passive. And they are somewhat passive when they aren’t being a PITA.

  • MyPoints has an app called MyPoints TV. If it doesn’t act buggy or freeze, this is good for another 10 – 15 somewhat passive points.
  • Swagbucks apps. Read all about them at this earlier post, “If You Aren’t Taking Advantage Of All 7 Apps That Will Earn You 60+ Swagbucks Per Day – You Are Really Missing Out! Or, ARE You?”
  • Inboxdollars use this to watch the TV videos. Not completely passive. It asks you every now and then if your are “still watching.”    Forget it. No longer working.  🙁
  • Earnhoney app. This is still in beta testing, so they ask that you be patient. I have earned from it, but yes, it can be a bit buggy at times.maxine

More tips and passive earnings will be added as I discover them. I know I am missing lots of things, but I am only one person and there are only so many hours I can zone out in front of the computer in a day. Post your favorite tips in the comments below!  🙂

  • If you found this page to be helpful, please consider making a small donation to MomsOffice, so I can spend more time researching ways to boost our earnings, and do less of my own click-click-clicking!  🙂 Thanks! My coffee cup runneth over!

Qmee: Let me tell you about the free extension/browser app that gives you real money for clicking ads from your Google, Amazon, EBay, Yahoo or Bing searches

Qmee: Is a free extension/browser app to make money clicking ads from your normal Google, Amazon, EBay, Yahoo or Bing searches.

I always forget it is there, until a link to earn 12 cents or so pops up. It is THAT unintrusive. And best of all, there isn’t a catch.Qmee

Search online as usual with Google, Amazon, EBay, Yahoo or Bing. You don’t need to do anything different.

Qmee results appear alongside your search. Most Qmee results have a cash reward attached. If you are interested in the result, click on it and collect your reward. Each Qmee result shows the amount you’ll receive if you click on it. Some are worth more than others. They only show relevant results so they don’t appeaqmee 4r all the time.

You log in to your account on the Qmee website to check your balance. It’s up to you when you empty your piggybank. There is no minimum. When you’re looking for stuff to buy or use, there are millions of businesses vying to get your attention. With an ordinary web search, it’s a one way relationship: you put the time in to search, you click on an advertisement or listing and you pay for what they selling. Once you have the Qmee app, extra results appear when you search. Businesses that use Qmee listings value you and are happy to give you a little something back to say thank you for looking at their web pages. You don’t do anything different.

Search for stuff you actually want, using your favorite search page just as you always have. You’ll see all the usual listings, with Qmee as an extra on the left. If you find what you want in the normal listings, that’s fine. But if a Qmee listing is qmee 2relevant and you click on it, a few coins will drop into your piggybank.

Founded in 2012, Qmee is the fastest-growing search-loyalty application on the Internet. Featuring a true cash bank that allows consumers to withdraw their funds through a PayPal account or to redirect their earnings to local and national charities.

Qmee has seen 500% growth annually in the UK and the US, leading CNNMoney.com to suggest it could be the future of online search. Qmee takes your security and privacy very seriously. They don’t share your data with anyone else without your permission. By using Paypal to cash out your rewards they don’t hold any of your financial information. All communication between the Qmee app and their servers is encrypted, and they do not track any other browsing activity. They do not access or alter in any way your browsers’ settings, cookies or other private information

Qmee works in qmee 5Windows, Mac OSX and Linux, using Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera or Internet Explorer. Qmee is not yet available for mobile, smartphone, tablet, iPod or iPad, but they are working on it.

How much do you earn by clicking on a Qmee result? It varies from a few cents (or pennies) to up to a dollar. The amount is shown in the top right hand corner of the ad.

You build up your value to Qmee by using it as part of your normal online searching. So if you like the look of a result, click on it, explore the pages it leads you to and engage with the business. You’ll be a valued visitor. As well as showing results with cash rewards, they also show offers in the sidebar to make your internet shopping experience even better, and to try and save you some money too. If you see a result without a cash reward attached, it’s an offer result – they contain an offer code for you to use which will save you money should you decide to buy something from the linked website. I’ve seen many times where I am searching for something to buy, and Qmee shows me a site with a better price and/or free shipping, or a promo code.

I installed Qmee sometime last fall, and I love it. So far this year (since January 1, 2016) I have earned $7.58. That’s not bad for something I forget about until it pops up in my search results to remind me. I’m sure it would be more if I did a lot more online shopping. Remember, pennies add up to dollars, and dollars add up to twenties, and twenties add up to hundreds, and, well, you get the idea.

MomsOffice gives Qmee 5 stars!

(Or 5 toilet seats up…)

“Oh my effing God! I have NO privacy!”

I nonchalantly walked through the door, as I came in from the back deck.

“So, did you get it?” my husband asked me, feigning a concerned tone.

“Oh my effing God! I have NO privacy!” I shouted, as I slammed my 10x magnifying mirror and tweezers down on the kitchen counter.

He winced as usual, like I am a beast and unstable. I am NOT a beast.

I mean, I may LOOK like a beast at times, hence the outside break in the blazing sunshine to find that darn chin whisker that had been plaguing me for two solid days. I would sit and rub it absent-mindedly while working at the computer, wondering if today was the day that it was long enough to finally pluck. Pluck is not the right word. More like grasping the very end, and doing a wiggle-wiggle-move, so it extends out a bit more. This way, I can get a good grip on it to pull it out from the root, instead of having it break off and having to wait several more days for it to make an appearance again. When this happens, it sends me into a tailspin. And then I have a tantrum. This is where I put myself in time-out by going to my bedroom and slamming the door. I may have been a bit gentler in my tone, had I actually gotten the beast that was sticking out like the very sharp tip of a needle on my chin.

My PC had bogged down, yet again. I can only imagine what the Federal Investigators would think of me if ever they had to comb through my computer. What, with playing Swagbucks videos, MyPoints 5 point emails that I click on, mTurk data entry, searches for random things to earn money on various points earning toolbars. (My favorite is Qmee. It pays real live PayPal cash, and there is no minimum to cash out.) But anyway, as I said, my computer was getting slow, so I cleared the history and cookies and restarted my computer. This was the perfect time to tackle the beast within.

The most satisfactory feature of ditching my job and working for myself at home, is that I can tend to pressing matters right away. Like a mind-numbing whisker on my chin. When I have things to deal with that are this extreme or intense, I can jump on it right away. I don’t have to wait until I get home from a “real job” where someone I don’t like dictates my schedule. I don’t have to ask anyone, or let coworkers know about bathroom breaks so they can cover my phone, like when I am having one of my violent IBS induced diarrhea attacks.

Plus, I get to enjoy my grandchildren. I am using the word “enjoy” loosely here. Wait — I need to pray. (Lord, grant me the patience to endure my blessings. Amen.) I am able to babysit my grandchild on a moment’s notice. And still work. Kind of.

But sure enough, just as soon as the aforementioned IBS takes aggressive action against me, the grandchildren are standing outside the bathroom door of the MomsOffice “restroom” trying to pick (and sometimes succeeding) the lock, asking, “What are you doing in there? What are those noises? Can I come in? Ewe it stinks!” And so on, and so forth. Could you imagine me abruptly disappearing from the office at a “real job?” In my experience, the average 4 year old asks somewhere around 437 questions per day. And so does the average boss.

If I am lucky, I am left alone while on the commode. Commode! (Excuse me…I am like a 3th grader when it comes to toilet humor.) My father always called it the commode, much to my mother’s chagrin. And it always made me laugh. But I digress.

As I was saying, If I am lucky, I am left alone while on the commode. Only to discover once I coolly and casually emerge, that total chaos was erupting while I was in the throes of a violent diarrhea attack. They have been unwrapping my homemade soaps that my daughter-in-law made for me. Getting into the Christmas ornaments I have stowed away to sell on eBay. Just as soon as I put out THAT fire someone asks, “Hey Granny… Do you have any more of these stickers?” I turn and stare in horror at my bookcase behind my desk covered in about 40 USPS postage stamps. Someone else is asking for pepperoni and Ritz crackers and I turn yet again to see that it is the neighbor kid that is going through my refrigerator.

A real day at MomsOffice.
A real day at MomsOffice.

Eventually, my youngest daughter comes to (finally) pick up her kids and the neighbor kid goes home. “I don’t know how you did it, Mom. With the three of us kids, I mean. I can barely handle my two.”

“I don’t either. It doesn’t seem real.” I say quietly. She’s not even waiting for my answer. I am staring into space while Ashleigh rushes around picking up toys and tidying the whirlwind that ripped through my house. I am envying her youth and energy, and I am barely listening as she launches into another subject and goes on about how Beyoncé is part of the Illuminati. She is really into these conspiracy theories! She actually had me believing for a while that the Earth is flat. I stayed up all night Googling it, doubting everything I thought I knew. When I tried to explain it to my husband, he looked at me as if to say, “It’s time, Kim. We are going to The Home.” It sounded very convincing when she explained it to me. I have trouble with expressing myself sometimes.

So while she is explaining the Beyoncé/illuminate connection, my mind is wandering. I am thinking about how I’ve always been one to beat myself up and second guess every move and decision in raising our kids. And now, I think. “Wow, I think I did okay!” Everyone is still alive, they lead productive lives and entrust me with their own children.

kamora_coffee_liqueurBut instead I blurt out. “I drank Ashleigh. I drank a lot of Kamora!” But she is not listening to me (thank goodness!) as she corrals the kids out to the car. As soon as the front door closed, I locked it, drew all the curtains and said dryly to my husband, “I’m going to go drown myself in the bathtub.”

As the tub is filling with Dr. Teal’s Foaming Bath that promises to “soothe your body, and relax your mind,” I look in the mirror and wish I had the fair and luminous skin of my daughters and daughter-in-law. I act like it just happens. Truth is, I am too lazy to adopt a skin care regimen. But I DO draw the line at whiskers.

Speaking of which, I finally DID get that beast. I got out a rarely used make-up brush, dipped it in luminescent face powder and “painted” the area. I saw a shiny speck protruding ever-so-slightly and went for it. There it was! I stood by my bedroom window with the afternoon sun and felt a tug as my tweezers clamped on. My hand started shaking in disbelief and excitement. I wiggled, paused, wiggled, and then let go to get a better grip. Wiggled and wiggled some more until it finally let loose. There it was! Of course I had to examine it thoroughly for length and color. It was quite long and bristly, (having a stiff and prickly texture) but not black as I had expected. It was blonde (or gray – whatever!).

After my soak in the tub, I triumphantly strolled out of the room, instantly in a better mood. Sat down at my computer and was finally able to fully concentrate for the first time all day. Feeling great satisfaction I rubbed my smooth chin while deep in thought about how I had an awesome day, and long night ahead, at MomsOffice.
