I know there have been a lot of scams out there regarding taking paid surveys to make extra cash, but I wanted to give my readers a heads up on a simple and FREE way to get into a group that you probably don’t even know about! This one piece of information can lead to a legitimate money maker for you!
Most of the time when you go to a store or restaurant and purchase something, there is a website or phone number listed on the back of the receipt so that you can go there and take a survey. Lots of people throw those away thinking they are worthless. DON’T DO IT! Take all those receipts and take the surveys!
You may be wondering why waste your time, right? There are two reasons:
- You may actually win the prize or free item they are offering you to take the survey
- You may qualify to be on their “consumer panel”
Being selected for a consumer panel is an ONGOING opportunity for you to take paid surveys! I kept taking every single one of my receipt surveys for a large chain store and they finally invited me to be on their consumer panel. I have to spend about 1/2 hour of my time per month telling them what I think of promotions, giving them new ideas and suggestions, etc. and in exchange they give me a $15 gift card to their store every month! This is a win-win situation!
Since getting on this one panel, I have been invited to two others. While this is not big money, it is a nice little money maker to buy yourself something with or to use for necessities or do what I do and save them to buy Christmas gifts. Those small amounts of extra cash really add up!
