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.

** If this link is not working, you will need to download the SwagButton, and click on the “Watch” tab.

*** You can only run one VideoLab per household. The one at EarnHoney is the highest paying one you will find at 1.5 cents. Use the Vivaldi browser! Ever since I’ve started using this browser, I’ve not gotten the message telling me I am done for the day. Instagc is the 2nd highest at 1.4 cents.

**** You can only run one MinuteStaff AutoSurf per household. The one at instagc is the highest paying one you will find.

Videology on OfferToro – Find this new PASSIVE video watching on OfferWalls. YES. You really CAN earn while you sleep!!

I found a new and exciting promotion on OfferToro called “Videology.”

OfferToro is an “Offer Wall” feature that you will find at many of your favorite survey, GPT and PTC sites.

Now wait — don’t get TOO excited. At least not yet. It has darn good potential though.

At first, I noticed it about 3 or 4 weeks ago on EarnHoney. When I realized how easy it was, and how good it paid, I quickly scanned my other favorite sites at have so far found it at the following:

EarnHoney  – well, it WAS there, but then they did away with OfferToro.  🙁

Instagc  – Found under OfferToro

PrizeRebel  – Found under OfferToro

Swagbucks  – (Yes! I know!!) – I’ve not seen it for a while on SB, but when they have it it will of course be under the OfferToro ad wall.

iRazoo referal code MXPYLY –  Found under OfferToro

GrindaBuck  – Found under OfferToro

GrabPoints referal code DLB5BFC  – Found under OfferToro

ClixSense  – Found under OfferToro. This will also count towards completed offers so you can get full bonus credit from your Daily Checklist.

At first they said, and even ENCOURAGED, us to….. What…?? To let it run continuously even in your sleep? YES!! Yes, they did!

This is what it said:

VIDEOLOGY
 

Rewards after you watch 10 short videos. This offer can be completed multiple times a day, everyday!

Warning: You must keep the popup window on top and view-able on your screen.
“This offer will refresh automatically, As long as your screen is viewing the popup video, you can let this earn on auto-pilot even while you sleep!

Now they have taken out the part about letting it run in your sleep. Oh, and now you have to watch 15 videos instead of 10, and the timer runs for 45 seconds for each video instead of 25 seconds.

And when it says, “Sorry, no offers are available right now.”  REFRESH! Or, close it out and reopen it. Yes, sometimes, that all it takes to bring the magic back.  🙂

HOWEVER.

This offer does not run as smoothly as it did in the beginning. And the earnings have been lowered. And the timers have been lengthened. And now you have to do one of those pesky captchas at the beginning, and every time it crashes and you have to restart it. 

Oh, those first few days were glorious. I made a lot of money, and ran all the eligible sites I could find at once. And it didn’t crash, or get hung up on a bad video, or even tell me that inventory had run out. But in the GPT world, we know that nothing good lasts forever. Or for very long.

It’s my understanding they are working out “bugs,” and trying to find ways to prevent fraudulent activity. So, in the meanwhile, search for it every day under your favorite OfferToro walls. Sometimes it’s there, sometimes it’s not. If it is, see if it is working.

I’ve had a terrible time this past week, where it wants me to keep the mouse on the active window. I understand having a window in view, But I can watch videos while doing other things. Security guards do it all the time.

Experiment with different browsers. If I find a way to make it magically work smoothly, whilst they work on their new tweaks, I will share with you. And y’all do the same for me please.

Peace & Love,

Kim

 

 

Being patient with EarnHoney is admittedly tiresome at times, but their passive sweet nectar can be abundantly rewarding

Patience:  a virtue; typified by the capacity or ability to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry, rude, aggressive or upset. Opposite of, “Are you effing KIDDING me!?!”

Please, give this site a chance. You will love it. I promise!

Why am I heading off this post with such trepidation? Well, quite frankly, people tend to have a lovehate relationship with EarnHoney.com.

I like EH. I’ll admit, at first, I didn’t “get it” because I couldn’t get the viewability circles to turn red or green, but I like this site. A lot. So — they have growing pains. With our feedback, they are growing their site while trying to get more advertisers, and dealing with flash being phased out. I am willing to hang with them. I think they have a hell of a lot on their plates right now. They want to make money just as much as we do. Some feel as though they are being “scammed.” No. I don’t think so. Scammers usually don’t put so much time and effort forth, much less ask for feedback. Just saying. 🙂

Anyway… EarnHoney.com operates a rewards network which offers multiple ways to earn virtual currency called HoneyDollar$. You can cash out for PayPal, Amazon gift cards or donate to charity. The big draw to EarnHoney is that they offer “passive” video watching. On-line earners love to add passive activities to expand their earnings while doing surveys, mTurk or while just browsing the “interweb.”

On EarnHoney, there is no hard and set rule on device limit, but the rule of thumb is — if you can’t see it, the brands shouldn’t have to pay for it. EarnHoney has never and does not approve of any “unattended passive video watching”. However, it is possible for 1 person to look at more than 1 monitor/screen/tab. Security guards frequently have 20+ screens they are monitoring. 

bee-with-moneyThe “HoneyDollar$” they tell you that you can earn per hour is an estimate, and it changes based on desirability to advertisers (what cookies you have, where you have visited, how many times you have seen the same ads, etc.). Each EarnHoney partner chooses their own payout scheme — this is why it changes all the time. So — the HD (HoneyDollar$) touted that you can earn per hour is only a reference number due to viewability, location, machine speed, cookies present etc.

You WILL earn. As long as:

  1. You have NO ad block going on
  2. Are from the United States
  3. Are logged in. Yes. Check occasionally to make sure you are still logged in.
  4. See “viewability circles” and that they are turning color (either red or green).

In order to ensure you get the best results with EarnHoney TV be sure that:

  • Flash 10.0+ later Installed
  • Your computer has at least 1Mbps bandwidth (less then this can cause buffering or no video to occur)
  • Your computer has more than 2Gb+ of RAM
  • Any browser crashing could be to insufficient computer resources to play high quality video

Try their surveys. They are usually easy and quickly tell you if you don’t qualify. You get 3 consolation prizes per day — which is when they award you 1 HD for attempting, but not qualifying for, a survey. You get 3 a day. If you successfully take a survey, your consolation prizes start over.

If  you find that you constantly have to click the play button to get the video to start,try zooming out (using CTRL + mouse wheel down) to see if that helps.

Be aware that there is a system-wide lack of ads at the end of each quarter and at the end of every month. So don’t be surprised if your earnings drop off during this time.

You can earn 10% on referrals for as long as you are both active on EarnHoney, with no maximum limit.

What is the meaning of the green circles when watching a video?

The green circles signify when your video player is earning extra honey!  Having at least 1 green circle will double or triple your earnings.  All you have to do is to have the video player be in-focus and in-view to get green!

Their website answers this question:  Is there a Limit to the Amount of Videos I Can Watch?
And they say, “No, there is no limit. Watch as many as you like!”

HOWEVER, there is controversy about that on Reddit. You will find a wealth of information on the EarnHoney Subreddit. Check it out daily.

Redditors often complain of “banning spees.” Obeying their policies should present NO problems. If you feel you have been unfairly banned, they have a very responsive CS team. However, please Don’t use any auto-refresh or auto-reload in your internet browser to passively watch videos or to walk away altogether from your computer/tablet/smartphone. This type of shortcut is easily detected and is definitely not in the spirit of EarnHoney and not what EarnHoney was designed for.

Also, Don’t use any unauthorized software, script, bot, or mobile emulator or to try and exploit EH in any way. Cheats and hacks are also easily detected by their compliance systems and can get you permanently banned from continuing to use their site.

Finally, Don’t view EarnHoney through any third party site. Only view videos directly through EarnHoney.com or through your EarnHoney Mobile App without the aid of any unauthorized software. They tell us on their site:  “If you feel your account is ever deactivated in error, we encourage you to write in to us at compliance@EarnHoney.com to ask any questions you have, tell us why you feel you may have been deactivated in error, or to request a new account with a fresh clean start.”

How do I earn by playing free games?

By playing these free and fun games, you will earn HoneyDollar$ whenever the companion video shows a commercial.

What types of games do you offer?

We offer action, driving, strategy, puzzle and other fun games. We update our games periodically so check back often!

Can I have multiple browsers, tabs open?

You can, but you earn much more when you are able to have the videos in-focus and in-view.  

What about pay?

Redemptions will be paid out on Mondays and Fridays. Submissions during Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday CST will be delivered on the following Monday. Submissions during Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday CST will be delivered on the following Friday. When you cash out for PayPal, if you post your earnings on Facebook, you will be rewarded an extra 5%! Do it every time!

earnhoneyMake sure you do these things every day to boost your earnings. As listed on my Daily To-Do List:  

  • Buzz TV Offers – Just click on these ads and earn .01 HD for each (Loreal, GameStop, etc.

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!

Q & A – Ask me (almost) anything! Updated regularly

big-dealSometimes I get questions through my “Contact Me” form, and I thought it would be helpful to post my replies to all. Keep checking back, you may find some useful info here!

P.S.  I date all of my replies, because an answer I give today, may or may not be relevant in the future, so please keep that in mind when reading. But I like to keep all of the Q&A’s posted because it may help clear up some confusion about the way something at a site USED to be. Plus, I hate to discard something I’ve worked on because I am a little bit self-absorbed.

 

ClixSense:

  • Q: How do you get around doing the tasks on clixsense. I cannot get the engageme.tv  videos to play continuously on a mobile with flash installed. I can get one video to play  and earn just fine, but not after the first one. Really wanted the bonus you were talking  about. Any suggestions? Any other offer you recommend?
  • A:  On ClixSense to do my offers, I go to ClixOffers –> Websites Explorer. There you will find the Jun Group videos. I usually do those until they run out. Then I do the Adscend –> EngageMe.TV videos. These two things are all I usually do for my offers. EngageMe.TV will not work on a mobile. It will however work on a Windows Tablet. When watching EngageMe.TV, I find it works best if I use Microsoft Edge for the browser. Well… sometimes.  Replied: 10/8/16
  • Q:  I’ve been using ClixSense for near a year now, I’m curious as to if anyone here is a premium member and if they think it is worth the $17. I complete the checklist daily and normally get around $6-10 per day from it, any input would be great.
  • A:  I thought it was a waste at first, but I upgraded almost a month ago and I’m glad I did. I do have referrals, but even if I didn’t, I would find that it pays for itself in short order if you are active on the site. Since there don’t seem to be as many ads lately, this would mean doing surveys and offers. I don’t do surveys, but the offers are easy. I really only focus on two: “Websites Explorer” under “ClixOffers” and “EngageMe.TV” under “Adscend.” EngageMe.TV runs passively and I let it run all day. So yes, it is worth it because I complete the checklist everyday. As a Premium member, I earn an additional 16% of MY earnings. Replied: 8/22/16
  • Q:  On ClixSense can you view the videos/ads on a phone or iPad using desktop mode and Buxenger, or do you have to have a computer?
  • A:  On ClixSense, I have used my Kindle to access the account with no problem. I do this sometimes when I am laying in bed with insomnia. LOL When I do this, I am not using the Buxenger app. I’ve never tried it on my phone, nor do I have an iPad.  Replied: 8/22/16

EarnHoney:

  • Q:  On earn honey, how many windows do you run On how many computers to get $5 a day? Thinking of getting windows tablet to run it or a cheap computer. I know you have a good computer, but what kind of a less than good computer do you run it on. How did you get it to run finally?
  • A:  On my main desktop computer that I use all day, I normally have 4 windask momows of EarnHoney running. I try them all to see what is working best that particular day. (MatchedCars, MeeMD, TVMinutes, etc.) I use Microsoft Edge browser for this, and I have zero extensions, plugins, etc. Just the plain browser itself. I have run even more windows at times, or even less, depending on what else I am working on. It should be noted that I have 16GB of RAM, so I can run lots of things simultaneously. I use Chrome for my main browser, with all sorts of bells and whistles that I enable and disable as needed. I run Swagbucks nCrave videos on an Opera browser window, because that is the only way I can get them to appear. Finally, I use FireFox for the videos I watch on the SwagButton. It took some experimenting, but you will find the right set-up that works for your computer. In addition I have an OLD, Slow@ss laptop, that I run one window of EarnHoney on. If EarnHoney is PMSing, I will do EngageMe.TV or something different on it.

MyPoints:

  • Q:  Do you have thoughts yet on the MyPoints update? I’m not sure how I feel about the video section.
  • A:  Yes, I have PLENTY of thoughts about the MyPoints update. Many of them rude! LOL I DO plan to do a new review of them as soon as possible.  Replied: 10/8/16
  • Q:  I signed up for my points with your referral and then could not log into my account. For some odd reason and they closed my account. They sent a message saying they had a high volume of tickets and would get back to me. So, I was going to sign up under another email using your referral. And are you allowed to have more than one account per household? Also, you sent me a coupon where if you spent $20 you got $10 back, so if I sign up under a new email and your referral will I get that again?
  • A:  Is it possible you set up an account long ago and have forgotten about it? It states they only allow one account per person. If not, did you activate the account? Also, check the Spam Folder in your email. From what I can tell, you are allowed to have more than one account per household, just no more than one account per person. Not sure about the coupon — that is something MyPoints sends attached to my invite. Also, you do not need to have a email invitation to sign up. You can do so here, and it will be my referral.  Replied: 8/22/16

Slow @ss computer:

  • Q:  My computer was bought in 2005 so it is kinda slow. I was thinking of looking for a cheap new or used one. Any advice?
  • A:  Funny you should mention this! I have just upgraded my computer and it makes a world of difference! I am no longer banging my head against the wall, and can multi-task much more efficiently! For instance, at this very moment, I am running Inbox Dollars TV, watching videos on the Swag Button, Watching my swagbucks playlist videos (4 minutes or less), having mTurk auto-capture hits for me, running EarnHoney videos, as well as playing the Swagbucks apps on my Kindle. AND checking my blog and email. SO worth it to get a decent computer. It really will pay for itself it time. Pity I am not one to give advice in this area. My son helped me — actually did ALL of the work. All I know is it has 16 GB of RAM and I can do everything I want to do with zero problems.  Replied: 8/22/16

Random Sh!t:

  • Q:  How many hours per day do you spend in front of your computer?
  • All. Freaking. Day. And night. But I love what I am doing!! Honestly, if I had to guess, I’d say between 8 and 10 hours on average. Some days, it’s only an hour or two. Sometimes I’ve spent probably over 14 hours if I am really engrossed in something. My husband said I act like I am late for work when I get up in the morning because I come busting out of the room and make a cup of coffee and sit right down at my computer. That’s because I love what I do and can’t wait to get started, and to see how much I have earned overnight. However, I have a really nice set-up. I’ve turned what was once the dining room into my office. We have an open floor-plan, so I can see the TV in the living room, and I have a huge window in my office I can look out of and spy on the neighbors. I get up throughout the day and walk around. Every so often I take my laptop on our back deck when I want to get my vitamin D and fresh air. And of course, I can leave MomsOffice anytime I like without having to ask anyone. I LOVE MomsOffice! And then, when I can’t sleep, I work in the middle of the night, and I work in the evening while watching TV, because I find it hard to just sit on the couch or my recliner and be idle.   Replied: 10/8/16
  • Q:  Have you ever used a Kindle/tablet on any of these sites?
  • A:  I don’t own a tablet, but would love to get a Windows Tablet from Santa Claus. <cough-cough> But yes. During the day, I will usually leave my 3 Kindles to play Swagbucks apps and/or PerkTV. If my computer is full of me doing other things, I will play the InstaGC passive videos on my Kindle. I have been known to lay in bed with my insomnia, Kindle in hand, and do what is allowed on some sites that are somewhat Kindle Friendly.   Replied: 10/8/16
    • I’ll click on ads at ClixSense
    • Do Daily Clicks videos at QuickRewards
    • Watch TV at InboxDollars
    • Look for easy offers on Swagbucks
  • Q:  I don’t believe I’ve seen you cover taxes. How do you handle taxes from the income you earn from Swagbucks, PrizeRebel, etc.?
  • A:  Well, this is a touchy subject for some. You are supposed to report ALL income to the IRS. But do most people really report the earnings they get from say, a yard sale? What if you find a $20 bill on the ground? U.S. law requires market research companies based in the U.S. to report any amount over $600.00 paid to an individual over a single calendar year, to the IRS. The good thing is, you can claim a home office deduction, and a portion of your utilities, such as electricity, Internet, phone, etc. This being said, yes I report my earnings on my income taxes. I can’t advise others what to do. But I also take that home office deduction! It’s nice!

InboxDollars TV:

  • Q:  I have been a member of InboxDollars for a while and plan to see if I can get the TV feature to work on my iPad or phone, so thanks for the post about it.
  • A:  You are welcome! I can’t believe I’ve let all these dollars slip through my fingers, since I’ve only just recently discovered Inbox Dollars TV! I’ve not been successful in getting it to work on my Kindle, and I do not have an iPad. I do have an old laptop that I can set it to go on though, while I work at my desktop. But now that I have a new, super-fast computer, I let it run in a small window all day, until it tells me there are no more. Even when it tells you there are no more, keep refreshing! And refreshing! I often make $2 or more per day using this alone, even though it tells you that $2 is the limit.  Replied: 8/22/16
  • Q:  How long does it take you to earn that much at inbox dollars? (above question)
  • A:  Well…. If all goes well, just about 3 – 4 hours (I think!). Honestly, I’ve never really paid attention. That’s about 3 hours of the videos actually PLAYING. It’s an all day event of clicking on “continue” when it asks you “Are you still watching?” I may not notice that question for an hour or two sometimes. I just keep on top of it as much as I can throughout the day. Some days InboxDollars TV is in a “mood” and won’t cooperate at all, whether I try it desktop or on mobile. Other days, it runs smooth as silk. That’s when I go over the $2 mark. Some days I cuss it out and turn it off after about 19 cents. But, all I do at Inbox Dollars is “Search” and “TV.” I’m able to cash out at about $40 every few weeks with minimal effort.   Replied: 10/8/16

Swagbucks:

  • Q:  Does SB TV  toolbar work on our kindle? What about the SB apps
  • A:  The SwagButton (or Toolbar TV) does not work on the Kindle — to my knowledge anyway. I have a feeling it would work on a Windows Tablet. The SB apps are all on my Kindle. I did have to “side load” them.   Replied: 10/8/16
  • Q:  At Swagbucks, have they ever given you a problem about doing nCraves while you run the mobile apps? Doing one thing at a time takes forever. 
  • A:  Heck no! In fact, you WANT to multi-task! Do as many things at the same time as your heart desires, just don’t do the same thing at the same time. For example, I may watch Sportly.tv on my phone, while I  play Indymusic.tv on my Kindle, while I watch SBTV on the desktop Swagbutton app, while I play a video playlist, while I take a survey… whew!  Replied: 8/22/16

Ebay:

  • Q:  I noticed that you sell stuff on eBay. Do you have any tips?
  • A:  I really had gotten tired of selling things on eBay such as used clothing. All that measuring and describing, etc. What I do now, is find things on clearance and buy in bulk. Also, I won’t sell anything that weighs too much. My favorite things to sell are Christmas ornaments that go on clearance right after the holidays. Some people are in the market for the ones they couldn’t find. But usually, they won’t start selling again until the next season, so you have to store them. Then they fly out of here! However, I keep them listed all year long because some people like to prepare all year long. Also, I sell flat gift wrap sheets and computer stationary. These sell rather well, and can be found on clearance all year through after each holiday. Graduation, Mother’s Day, Christmas, etc. These are easy and lightweight to ship. Coupons. Believe it or not, people buy coupons! Especially ones for baby formula, baby and adult diapers, pet food (think of the crazy cat lady with 20 cats) or whatever item might be on sale currently so they can extreme coupon. I find my things to sell in stores and on-line. The reason I mostly sell new items now is because they are SO much easier to list! I can find the item on line, and copy/paste the description. It often includes the measurements, etc. I got overwhelmed with all my used stuff that was staring at me and waiting to be listed. So I gave it all to Goodwill and started new. Much less stress. Check out my listings here.  Replied: 8/22/16
