Free Money - No Time To Earn Money Online?

Free Money - No Time To Earn Money OnlineYou don't have time to do it - or it's too hard to earn points?
I am very busy too and yet I find time to manage four points sites - you can too!

I will describe how I do it in less than 18 minutes a day!

Start - 10:40 AM

I use Tabs in my browsers - I hope you know how, they make any job so much quicker!

Log into Swagbucks, earn 1 SBs from the toolbar
Do a search for iRazoo

Open Irazoo in a new tab, and log in
Do a search for "valentine's day"
Click on two search results, which open in new tabs
Wait for the voting count-down to finish

While I am waiting, I go back to Swagbucks
Search Zoombucks
Open Zoombucks and log in

Back to the iRazoo pages
The countdown was finished.
Vote and make a comment for both page - earned 100 Raz points.
Clicked on My Account
Click on the "Earn MEGA points" link on the bottom of the page - Earn 5 more points.
Do a search for "cantalopes" - win 31 Raz points.
Close iRazoo

Break 10:48-11:07

Back to Zoombucks
Click on ZDaily Main - earn 6 ZBs
Do a Web Search - earn 4 ZBs
Click Back to Home
Click on one of the Points with Offers - earn 1 ZBs
Close Zoombucks

Back to Swagbucks
Click on EARN, then on Daily Polls
Vote - earn 1 SBs
Click on NOSO (under Earn)
Click Start Earning Now
Go thru the steps. Skip, skip, skip, See Next Offer, Skip.
Earn 2 SBs.
Do a search, earn 10 SBs
Log into my Survey Dashboard (under Earn) - earn 1 SBs

Finish - 11:17

Now I may do much more in a day, if I have time - you can do surveys, special offers, etc - but this is my bare minimum. How much time do you waste each day, playing Facebook games, or just surfing the forums?

Total time: 18 minutes

Oh, and while I was doing the above, I was also writing this post - so I did all of the above AND wrote a post about it - in just 18 minutes!

Total points today:

Swagbucks - 15 SBs
- in a year's time, that would be 5,475 SBs
or twelve $5.00 Amazon gift cards!

Irazoo - 136 Raz points
- in a year's time, that would be 49,640 points
or sixteen $5.00 Amazon gift cards!

Zoombucks - 11 ZBs
- in a year's time, that would be 4,015 ZBs
or $40 in Amazon gift cards!

Total earnings for less than 18 minutes work each day?

Just ask, if you have any questions - I am glad to help!

    That's awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    That comes up to an hourly wage of approximately $2.43 for the 18 minutes, and slightly over $4/hour for the 11 minutes. And you can only spend it at Amazon? Not necessarily bad, but definitely a lot of work for a very little income.

    Irazoo now only give 10 points, 5 for searching and 5 for commenting, for each search term result that is clicked on.

    Maximum clicks is 3 results within each search term looked for, any more and you do not get extra points added until you search for a new thing.

    To compensate for this unpopular move, they increased the total allowed point limit to 150 points a day, not 100 as before under the old 2 rate+comment system.

    Now to Swagbucks.

    My site lists more ways to get Swagbucks, I usually get 90 a day but I am not saying how exactly.

    Being in the UK that means I can get just over 3 sets of £5 amazon.CO.UK vouchers. If I was allowed to, I could get about 6 Yank ones, but they restrict Canadians to .CA vouchers and UK to .co.uk amazon.

    Unlike the more enlightened Zoombucks which converts the dollar Amazon amount $20 (for 2000 Zoombucks points) into £ at the exchange rate at the time of the transaction.
