Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost is open to registrant in the United States and Canada. You must be at least 18 years old to join.

Opinion Outpost awards points that are redeemable for cash or Amazon gift cards. I like the Amazon gift card reward program offered through Opinion Outpost overall because there Amazon gift cards are activated immediately. Each Amazon gift card cost $5 or 50 points.

The average reward per survey is $1(10 points) to $10 (100 points). You can also request a check once your balance is a minimum of $5 or 50 points.

Opinion Outpost also has a referral program. Once you get signed up you can start earning points for sharing the site with your friends. You’ll earn $1 (10 points) for every friend that signs up and completes at least (1) survey.

New and Expecting Moms

My Survey is currently recruiting new and expecting moms to take surveys geared towards products for babies and new moms. They are also looking for mom testers to try out new and existing products as well.

Not only do you get to give your opinion about new and exiting products, you also get compensated to do it.

Christmas Cash

With Christmas in 66 days I wanted to put together a list of money making opportunities. If you have a little bit of time to dedicate each day, to any of the following sites, you can make enough money to pay for Christmas gifts debt FREE.

This is how we bought our children their X-Box last year and how we plan to fund Christmas gifting this year.

Whether your list is short or small if you start now, by mid December you should have several small checks in you mailbox that will equal up to big savings in December.

My Disclaimer: The following sites and companies are one that I use in some form or fashion. None of the following companies have asked me to market any of the products or services to my readers. Each of the listings has some sort of referral program in which I am a part of. Therefore if you join, I will be awarded point, cash etc.

This however does not cloud my moral judgment regarding sharing information about any of the companies. My goal is to help you find some extra cash for the holidays first and foremost and that it the basis for this post. The fact that I get a bonus or gift card is just an added benefit. If you choose not to use any of my links, I will not get credited for you registering. That is okay. Be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully, as some of the offers do require a referrer to qualify for the bonus.
