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.

iRazoo is offering DOUBLE Points on the Adscend Offer Wall. This means 1.7 cents for Every 3 EngageMe.TV videos!

I love this little site I stumbled across a few months ago. It’s a good fill-in site, and sometimes they have some great promotions going on. Like they do NOW.

Earn DOUBLE Points starting NOW and running until Sunday, May 21 ending at 12:00PM EDT, at iRazoo, on the Adscend Offer Wall.

6 points = $0.01, so the EngageMe.TV videos will be worth 1.66 cents for every 3 watched. Forget Swagbucks at 1/2 cent for 6 videos!! (I’m mad again at SB right now…)

And to boot, iRazoo seems to have an unlimited supply of the hyprMX Videos today. You can earn up to 22 iRazoo Points. Today they are all crediting at 10 points, so that too is the equivalent of 1.6 cents, when SB is paying only 1 cent for the same. Check out all of their videos here.

So, I know I will be spending quite a bit of time on iRazoo this weekend. This EngageMe.TV promo is too good to pass up!

P.S.  On a unrelated subject, please forgive me if I have not been as active on the site these days. I finally know now what the heck is wrong with me, and why I had to quit working at at “real job.” I have fibromyalgia. Some days I just feel lazy. Or I hurt. But I still do my best to keep up with the Video Playlists for MyPoints and Swagbucks, and my Daily To Do List. It’s just good to know that I have proof now to show my family that I am indeed “not crazy” or nothaving “one of her breakdowns.” It’s just me. My nerves are extra sensitive, and I am delicate, like a desert rose or a sneauflayke.

Swagbucks video playlists that are 4 videos or LESS per SB!

I used to do a running post similar to this one, then Swagbucks made it too hard. They took all the good and profitable playlists away. Well now they are back! At least temporarily. They have a March Madness promotion going on and have doubled the SB’s on some of the playlists. Yay!  🙂

I have already updated my other playlist — (and it has been HARD because they have been changing it up like crazy lately!) — but a BUNCH of them are LESS than 4 minutes per SB! It hasn’t been like that in a LONG TIME. So let’s enjoy it while we can, shall we?

I know some of you prefer the shortest playlists, so that you can click-click-click through them as they credit. So, since they have this really good promotion going let’s pile on the SB’s! I will keep this list going as long as it is feasible and as long as Swagbucks cooperates.  🙂

Please note:  Some of the videos may overlap of you are doing both of my Swagbucks Playlists. Meaning, some will show as already having been watched.

Again, these are fewest videos per SB. If you want fewest MINUTES per SB, click here.

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!
