What is Jingit?

Jingit is a company that pays members to watch online advertisements. When registering, you should know that they require your mobile number to 'verify that you are a real person.' Also, the only way to register or login is through your Facebook account. For some people, these features can be a real turn-off, but if this doesn't bother you, this could be a good opportunity. Once you enter your mobile number, they will send you a text with a verification code that must be entered on the screen. After you enter the verification code, you are all set to start earning money. At the bottom of your screen, a few advertisements are available to watch. Similar to (see my post here) only a few videos per day are available to watch.

Ipsos i-Say

What is Ipsos i-Say?
First off, an explanation of the strange name: Ipsos is a global market research company, founded in 1975. i-Say is the online survey panel aspect of the company. In short, Ipsos i-Say is a survey company that pays panelists to take surveys, which helps their clients shape their market and product research based on consumers' opinions. 

How Do I Make Money?
Ipsos i-Say awards points for each survey completed. Points can be converted to cash (check or Paypal), donations, or American Express giftcards. What's nice about this survey company is that if you don't qualify for a survey after starting it, they will try to find another survey for you to take.

Fusion Cash

What is Fusion Cash?
FusionCash is a GPT (Get Paid to Try) offer website. So, you earn cash for completing free and risk-free trial offers. "Why would a company pay me to try their products?" you ask. Well, instead of wasting their marketing dollars trying to reach audiences that ignore their advertising anyway, advertisers pay companies like Fusion Cash to get people to sign up for their products and services. FusionCash recruits members to sign up for these offers and in turn, pays their members with the money they earn from their advertisers. Advertisers have a captive audience and, as a consumer, you get to try out products that you were probably already thinking about buying, but now you have a financial incentive to do so.

MindField Online Internet Panels

Surveys are one of those types of opportunities that you love or hate. I happen to love them, but that doesn't mean I do each and every survey that is delivered to my inbox. I pick and choose the surveys I do, based on the topic and incentive. While each survey in itself doesn't pay a whole lot, they do add up! When deciding if a particular survey and incentive is worth my time, I think of it in terms of hourly pay. So, for example: if a survey says it will take 20 minutes to complete and it pays $1.00, the hourly pay would be $3.00/hour. Each person is different and each person must decide which opportunities are worth their time.

Inbox Dollars

I don't know about you, but I love easy money. And how much easier does it get to open an email and be paid a few pennies to do so? Before you complain about the skimpy payout, consider the last time you were paid just to open an email and click the link. It literally takes 5 seconds or less to do this easy activity and the earnings add up - especially if you engage in other activities on

What is is one of those opportunities that pays you to open emails, complete offers, play games, watch videos, perform online searches, and complete surveys. Just between you and me though, the one thing I don't bother with is doing their surveys. The rewards tend to be really low compared to what and other paid survey websites pay. What IS nice is that you get $5 in your account for free just for signing up!


When was the last time you earned money to perform a Google search? Did you earn anything last night when you were watching your favorite TV show? How about the last time you offered your opinion on something? If you're not getting paid for these things now, you need to consider participating in

What is is one of those sites that offers virtual currency ("swagbucks") for searching the web, doing online shopping, watching online TV, and by engaging in activities like phone recycling, submitting polls, and completing special offers.

How many of us have things sitting in our house that we never use, but can't bare to get rid of? Things that come to mind might be baby gear, electronics, water toys, roller skates, power tools, camping gear, etc - even vehicles! Now imagine being able to rent these items out for a fee, many times over?! 

What is is an online rental marketplace - where owners and renters come together to rent or offer to rent almost anything! As an owner, you can list an item you have for rent and choose how much you are willing to rent the item out for. As a renter, you can pay a reasonable fee to rent almost anything you can think of. takes a portion of the rental fee in the form of a retainer, which is deducted from the rental price due to the owner.


I'll bet you have a few old books lying around that you've promised yourself you'll read "someday". Yep, I used to have some of those too...until I sold them for straight cash to Why not take those old dusty books and turn them into greenbacks? Not only can you earn a few easy bucks, but you can de-clutter your desk and bookshelves while contributing to the green movement by recycling your oldies but goodies.

Focus Forward

What is Focus Forward?
There are actually two branches of Focus Forward: Focus Forward and Focus Forward Online. Focus Forward Online allows you to take surveys via email in the comfort of your own home. Focus Forward allows you to participate in focus groups, telephone interviews, webcam interviews, or product testing. These opportunities may require going to a focus group facility, spending time on the phone or online with an interviewer, or completing a homework assignment. I have actually done a few Focus Forward webcam studies/interviews and they are pretty fun and interesting!

Amazon Mechanical Turk

Most of us are aware that is an online marketplace where companies and individuals can buy and sell, but did you know that also offers work at home opportunities? And, I'm not talking about those rare telecommuting jobs that most of us are not qualified for. What's nice about working for Mechanical Turk is that you can set your own hours and choose only those tasks that are interesting to you. While this opportunity will likely not make you tons of money, it can be utilized in conjunction with a Multiple Streams of Income strategy.
