How To Make Free And Easy Money With GPT Sites
Since joining Associated Content, I’ve been spoiled by making money online by writing articles such as this one. But I’ve become more anxious to make even more money online, which is why I clicked on a link in the forums about Cash Crate. Cash Crate is one of many GPT sites on the internet. GPT stands for Get Paid To and at these sites you can make money to click on ads, fill out surveys, sign up for free trials and samples, etc. Some of the offers cost money, but a lot of them don’t cost any money at all, and personally I stick to the ones that don’t.
To make money online, all you need is some free time and an extra email address, and we all have about fifty of those laying around, right? If not, they’re free and easy to set up. I recommend G-mail because you can add the little dots in your email address and it looks like a whole new email address. A good rule of thumb for making money this way is if you want to try to the service/product anyway, sign up through a GPT site and get some money back in your GPT account. But personally, I’m not signing up for anything I don’t already want or haven’t had before.
You can make more money if you choose the offers which require a trial or shipping and handling costs. But you don’t have to choose these offers in order to make money. To risk nothing, stick to the freebie offers. There are plenty of them, and not all of them confirm but lots do. Here’s how to work these GPT sites to make some extra spending cash.
First sign up using real information, including an email that you check frequently. They’ll use this email to confirm your membership, send out newsletters (if you opt for them) and email you when an offer is confirmed. Some of the sites will use your real address to send you a check for the money you’ve made. For those sites that use paypal, be sure to include your paypal email address.
Once you’ve registered, have a look around the site. Some sites list the most recent payout offers at the bottom of the page. These are the easiest money on the site, which makes them good offers to start with. Find the freebie stuff and click. Maybe you may like to try some of the higher paid offers later. Maybe not. It’s completely up to you.
When you click on an offer, fill it in with real information and your spare email. If you don’t wish to use your real phone number (because they will call you) you can get a private number at privatephone.com Carry on through the entire offer until you get a message that says your information has been accepted, or you’re registered, etc. It usually comes with a thanks. But keep an eye on your spare email because sometimes these sites and sign up deals want you to confirm your registrations and contest entries. And until you click on the confirmation email your offers at the GPT site will not go through and you cannot make the money offered you.
Between offers, it’s very important that you clear your cookies. If you don’t do this, you won’t make nearly as much money. In Microsoft Internet Explorer to clear cookies you must click on tools, then internet options, then delete cookies. In Firefox, you need to click on tools and then options. Then you can clear whichever cookies you want, or all of them at once. But keep in mind, if you clear all of your cookies, you’re going to have to re-log into the GPT site and your email again.
There are all sorts of GPT sites to choose from, and here are my favorites. They’re all pretty much running the same philosophy, and the same tricks and tips apply to all. They vary in website interface and payout/payment methods. But these are my favorites because I’ve made money with all of them. Try them out and tell me which ones you like.
Treasure Trooper is the funnest GPT site because as you click on offers to make money, you also can accumulate gold and silver coins and pearls. When you complete an offer, you typically get a gold coin, and you can use these coins to buy pieces of a map and journal in order to solve a scavenger hunt game, in which you could win a hundred more dollars. After a completed offer (whether or not it confirms) you can also play the shell game. If you guess the clam holding the pearl, you win the pearl. When you’ve accumulated eight pearls, you can buy two referrals. Then you can make more money with your referrals. If certain offers don’t confirm, you can try them again, and if you’ve already won a pearl, you needn’t find it again. You can just try the offer again and if it confirms you still win the pearl. Treasure Trooper requires that you have twenty dollars in your account before you are paid.
Cash Crate is also a well known GPT site that’s been known to pay out a lot of money to a lot of people. There is no fancy game to go along with the offers, but I’ve had good luck at getting offers to confirm. Cash Crate requires that you have twenty dollars in your account before being paid. But as with Treasure Trooper, you can make that amount in just a couple hours.
Fairy Tale Treasures is a smaller GPT site run by two sisters who have a Disney fascination. Every day they post a trivia question relating to Disney. If you guess the right answer you can win a magic lamp. Magic lamps can be cashed in for referrals, which means more money for you. Fairy Tale Treasures also boasts a more frequent pay cycle for their money making members. They currently pay twice a month and the best part is they pay by paypal. No need to wait on a check or going to the bank to cash it for your money. Payment is automatic and prompt. It only takes ten dollars to be eligible for payout.
This site is very similar in layout to Fairy Tale Treasures but it seems that the offers are confirmed a lot more easily. With completed offers you win signs, which can then be used to play games and/or buy prizes. You can also upgrade your membership if you have enough signs. I’m fairly new to this site but I like it a lot so far. It also pays via paypal, but you need twenty dollars to cash out.
Another thing GPT sites offer is the ability to shop online and receive a kickback from stores the GPT sites are affiliated with. For example, you can order something from Walmart and receive a percentage of your purchase back in your GPT account. That’s a nice added bonus if you do a lot of online shopping. You’ll buy the items anyway. Why not get a little of the money back when you do?
