$9.98! Can You Get Any Closer to Payout?

United States
December 31, 2007 8:19am CST
Well...the month is over, I have let my friends know I won't be here as much, I have had a lot of fun, and when it is all said and done (earnings updated ten minutes ago) I have $9.98. I am two whole cents away from being able to request payout. With my plan this definitely means I will be able to request payout next month...but gee wizz can you get any closer then that. Sure...$9.99...but not much! Anyway, hope everyone did better then I did!

Well this month is over and I couldnt reach the minimum payout, neither I got 1 dollar hehe, but I hope to reach it in the next month. In spite of working hard I didn`t post enough posts this month, but I am sure with hard work everyone can reach their goals at mylot, have a nice day.

Aww so close!! How sad to have to wait a whole month because of 2 pennies! :P I'm at what I think is going to be my lowest payout so far... $12.90. But I shouldn't complain since at least I made it! It just goes to show I have too much time on my hands, because I've made payout here every single month, and a few months I even got close to $40.

Actually I gave it to charity, just like I did my mylot earnings every month for the first half of this year. I would be doing so now, but I spent almost half a year out of work because of illness, so I have to put every cent towards bills instead. As soon as my financial situation here clears up, I'll be back to using my online money for charity! :)

Well I am at 9.87, I have sort of figuered out that if you make 2 post you get 1 cent,4 post 2 cents and so on. Of course this is just my findings and this is not for real. I hope this is right though. I have been keeping track and so far so good. I hop by the end of January I will make pay out. I hope to post a little more than I have been lately. Happy New Year to all mylotters.

You should definitely reach payout if you are already that far, I cant wait to get to the payout level I know I will here in January because I am extremely motivated. You already have almost what you need to make it anyway. Good luck and God bless.

Well, I had been closed to my first payout at $9.95. I thought I will get my first payout on that month, but did not. I am close to get payout at $8.94 on December. I hope I will get my payout on January and looking forward posting discussions. I think you had been very close to payout. Sad to see it. Hope you will reach your payout every month.

Well, you still have the rest of today, so don't count your chickens yet. I am still about 35 cents shy of payout, which is frustrating. I know this money is not going to make or break me, but it's just the idea of waiting another month because I fell a few pennies short. But at least you know you will get payout next month, and more than the minimum. It is something to look forward to.

I maintain eight blogs. I write for Associated Content, Helium, Review Stream, Shared Reviews, and howtodothings.com. I have a few more things I may try in the next few months. But while spending so much time here I have slacked off on all of the things I have been working on. So, back to work I go. My goal is to make four thousand a month by 2011 so that my husband can stay home and work by my side.

I would say that that is very ambitious, how I would love to make enough online that my hubby wouldnt have to work so hard.

How much do you get paid per post? How long did it take you to get that close?

As a rule of thumb you should write replies to posts that are at least three lines and pushing for more then that. I always try to reply at least four lines. I don't start many discussions, but do do some. It has taken me five weeks of fairly regular posting to make the ten dollars. If you make 34 cents a day you can do it in a month. On average you make 1-3 cents a post. There have been some that have seemed to make more then that and others that I didn't seem to make anything for. So, it isn't an exact science. I always figure one penny and am thankful for more then that! Good Luck!

Too bad myLot didn't have a little "cyber-cup" with pennies in it like they have on the counter at some stores. "If you need a penny or two, help yourself, if you have one to spare, drop it in." Well, the pressure is definitely off for making payout for January! Annie

My first month I was as $9.96 on the 30th! Annoying, but just let it roll on over and your next month will look so much better you'll be energized to post more and up that amaount for the next months payout!

I didn't do as well as you for the month. Start a couple more discussions and that should make your 2 cents. You might still make the deadline depending upon the time myLot updates their accounts. Don't know when they cutoff the day or the month.

Actually, we don't request payout. If we have the amount we have chosen for payout when it's "that time of the month"...lol....then we will see it. For some reason many people think mylot is that type of site where we request our payout and I don't understand that. I'm sure you will make your $10 by the end of the day.....I'm sorry to hear you won't be around as much as you have been. Happy New Year!
