First paycheque from CashCrate

I was quite surprised today to find in my mailbox a cheque made out to me from the Wells Fargo bank! I got paid by Cashcrate!

I have been so busy with my fulltime job lately that I haven't actually been working on surveys or even looking at the CashCrate website...
but they did in fact pay me for the work I did back in last two days of August.

In two days I was able to make... $11.42 US!

I know, not a big deal. But that was only two days. Now, in all honesty I want to make perfectly clear that this is not quick, easy money. It took me more than 4 hours to make that money!

One of the mistakes I made was going for a large payout survey... but it required me to purchase something. There are quite a lot of surveys available that you can get paid if you spend something. Not exactly the kind of money making I was interested in. In this case I was willing to pay the money just to try it out. It was a service that was kind of interesting, but in the end it just wasn't a service I was interested in... so I was able to cancel it without having to actually have anything billed to me due to a "trial" offer. However I did provide my credit card details to the respectable company... so if I had forgotten to cancel I would be having to pay back a monthly fee. Honestly I can't remember if it was recurring or not.

So just take that as a word of warning. When you join CashCrate, read all the blog posts you can and visit the forums. Follow their tutorial and they suggest you only go for the free surveys until you are more familiar with the process.

In fact, there is nothing wrong with paying for some services. If you find something you are interested, go ahead and purchase it! That's the point of filling out surveys after all. Somewhere along the line a company is trying to provide its goods or services to someone who is interested in what they have to offer.

As a referral update I now have 6 level one referrals and 2 level 2 referrals. Its definitely been a slow month of September!

But give it a try: Cashcrate works, and it pays out.

Ever heard about Santas Gifts All Year? It's way better then cashcrate because it's international. Review it on your blog and get a lot of referrals, because no one really knows about this paying site :).
To make sure they really pay, read the review on a make money online guiant - IncomeBooster.org
