How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



(1/6/2016 update): SINCE THE TIME THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN IN JUNE ’07 I HAVE MADE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FROM CASHCRATE – here is a video of one of my most recent check along with a picture of a check from January 2016 – (CashCrate proof of payment)

You should never pay to join a survey site as all legitimate sites are free. CashCrate is real and it is one of the best free paid survey sites there is. This is my CashCrate review. (13 years and older for this so it is a great job ideas for teens and it is absolutely free!)

As of 2/6/2015 I have now made thousands of dollars. I have gotten a check from CashCrate every month and promptly too. There is obviously good money to be made here.

It is easy to sign up to Cash Crate and start making money and they will send you a check just like the one you saw in my video. They have an active forum as well where you can find all the help you should ever need and an simple to understand website that is easy to navigate.

Your First Step

Your first step is to go to your members area were all the surveys and offers will be displayed. You will probably want to start out with all the offers that say “Register for free”. First do a sort like I show below to find all the 100% free offers sorted by the highest payout. You are here to make money on Cash Crate so you might as well start from the highest paying offers and go down.

Scroll down through the offers to see if there are any that look appealing. You can do any offer, of course, but the easiest by far are the register for free offers. The two offers below should take a total of 2 to 3 minutes to fill out and will get you a quick easy buck. Look for others like these that will only take you a minute or two to do. Please note, you should sign up for a free second email address through Gmail, Yahoo, or Aol so that any followup email you may get from the survey and offer companies does not go to your regular email address. You will probably not get a lot of spam but it is better to be safe.

You should continue to do all these “register for free” offers until you run out of them. Once you do, you can then choose other offers such as the surveys until you reach your $20.00 Cash Crate payment threshold. The surveys take a bit longer and that is why I recommend starting with all the register for free offers. You can get ambitious and sign up for offers that are not free if you like for bigger payouts, but that is absolutely not necessary.

Hint #1: Don’t do the ringtone offers because they are not free even though they say they are. All you have to do is enter your cell phone # but your cell phone bill will then be charged a monthly fee. I did this and learned the hard way so unless you really want ring-tones, don’t do any of these offers.

Hint #2: You should clear your computer cookies between every offer just to be safe. Some offers are from the same company and sometimes if you already have their cookie on your computer for the first offer you will not get credit for the second offer. This need to clear your computer cookies will apply for all survey sites and not just with CashCrate.

How To Refer Others For More Money

The best way to make money with CashCrate and any other survey site is to refer people. This is 100% optional and you do not need to refer anyone ever to get paid. The first level commission for CashCrate (those who sign up under you) is 25% and the second level pays 10% (those that sign up under the person who signed up under you). This is more that any other survey site pays and what makes CashCrate so wonderful.  This is a great way for someone to get started making money online and the best kind of passive income on the Internet.

How would I recommend getting started referring people to Cash Crate? Once you earn your $20.00 you should have a feel for the system and have learned how to do things quicker and make money faster. As you learn tips you can pass them along to others. You might start a blog about surveys or put up a Squidoo lens or write articles. One method you cannot use is to promote CashCrate on Myspace, Facebook, and other similar sites as their terms say that will get you banned. I am now making over $1,000 a month and I highly recommend them as one of the totally honest 100% legitimate survey sites.

Here is a list of some of the ways people are being creative and making referrals:

1. Post on GPT forums
2. Refer Friends and Family
3. Refer Guild Members/Online Friends
4. Door hang with home made flyers
5. Walk through parking lots putting flyers on cars
6. Make a blog
7. Keep your referal link on your Sig on all forums with a breif explanation
8. Find chat rooms and groups that have the sole purpose of “Easy Money Making”
9. Stick an add in the classifieds
10. Go down to your local college and talk to passerbyers (college kids always need money!)
11. Put a flyer up at work
12. Get a magnetic strip/sticker to put on your car so you advertise while you drive!
13. Post your link at the end of your YouTube videos
14. Seed/Upload your files alot? Stick a .txt in an RAR file with whatever you are uploading with your referal link and instructions
15. Give flyers for local buisnesses to hand out (Go to a food delivery place, see what it will take for them to coupon your flyers, may I suggest chinese?)
16. Send out flyers in a mailing list ( is one site you can get mailing lists)
17. Get a bot/macro to post your link with a simple explanation on any server you may be hosting/running
18. Make A Web Site
19.Tell people thru IM
20. Links Exchange
21 print business cards and include your phone number to enter into business drawings (like you find in a lot of restaurants)

Whatever you do remember it is free to sign up to Cash Crate. They have a great active forum with lots of help if you need it. This is a great way to make extra money online and get some money coming in. Many people (including me!) make hundreds every month and you can also read about how they do it in the forums. This is one of the many ways to make money you should be doing to add some extra spending money to your budget. It is easy and anybody can do it and CashCrate is the best survey site I know of. If you have any questions about this CashCrate reveiw please let me know in the comment section.

    I just started cashcrate and I have been using a false address. Should I use a real address or will they mail-spam me if I do? I know that many offers ask for an address.

    I just answered that in the comment above. You have to use your real address because if you don’t it is against Cash Crate’s terms and your account can be deleted.

    hey as far as filling the “free registration and a survey” offers go, after filling out the form do i have to sign up for an offer for my money to be credited?? or can I just close the windpow after i fill out the form? I’m a newbie soo i need a little advise. HELP! Oh and BTW Crashcrate is awesome! I think im gonna go around telling everyone about it.

    You need to find the small box at the bottom of the page that says “Skip” and click it. That will take you by all the offers they really want you to sign up for but you don’t have to.
    I always suggest to read the threads in the forum as there is tons of help there and the answer to most questions

    i would like to ask you if i have a US cash crate account can i have my check shipped to an address in the Philippines?
    because if i create an international account the offers take forever to get validated and i can only do 2 offers. i have to wait until the first 2 get credited. so if i make a US cash crate account can i have it mailed to an address here in the Philippines?
    thank you
    any help would be much appreciated.

    No, I don’t think you can do that. You have to use your real address and any “US account” you would make would not have your true address. It is unfortunate but CashCrate is best for people who live in the US. However, if you can refer people who live in the US you will be able to make money that way.

    Cashcrate is the best survey site hands down. They have high paying free and trial offers, as well as the best referral program.

    Hi…I live in India.Will cashcrate work for me ?

    manorama on October 25th, 2009

    If you live in India, there will be very few surveys or offers for you. That holds for almost all countries other than the US. HOWEVER, you can refer people from the US and get full credit for that. There are many people from around the world that make good money by through the referral system.

    Do i have to pay tax at the year end for the money i earned through Cashcrate?

    What if i send the check to my parents in india and ask them to deposit there. Does it work?

    I can’t give tax advice here. If you make less than $600 you are probably alright though.

    This is actually the page that got me started on cashcrate lol. I’m expecting my first check sometime next week. Hope you’re enjoying the commission you made off my $20 (Nov. 29-30) lol! made the minimum just in time for payout 😛

    I’ve been doing cashcrate for almost a year and have made 4 different checks. The best thing I’ve found is that the fact the money carries over and never expires.
