Welcome to the first day of our 31 Days to Earn Extra Cash Online series!
I’m starting the series with an oldie but a goodie: MyPoints.
I’ve been with MyPoints for about 7 or 8 years now, and I credit them with giving me my first glimpse into the world of earning extra cash and gift cards online. Seems like a a good place to start!
How to Earn:
Earn points with MyPoints by reading e-mails, signing up for offers, taking surveys, and shopping through their site.
What You Can Earn:
Click on the ‘Rewards’ section of the MyPoints site to check out their vast array of rewards from an extensive list of merchants – PayPal cash, Amazon gift cards, restaurant and retail shopping gift cards and more. Over the years, I’ve redeemed my points for hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards.
- It takes some time for your points to add up, but check your emails daily for points-earning opportunities. I’ve earned most of my points from the emails that give me 5 points simply for clicking the offer.
- Check their easy points section which offers points for things like signing up for newsletters and taking surveys.
- I don’t recommend spending money to earn points unless it’s for something you planned on purchasing anyway.
- Use your referral link to refer your friends. Get 25 points per referral and earn 10% of their eligible points.
