PTC sites = a waste of time...

In my humble opinion all ptc sites and buxes are a waste of time and effort. They are boring and tedious, and you only gain a few cents. Besides it takes ages to cashout, and there is often a fee involved too to make things worse! I honestly feel sorry for people who work on them. There are better ways to earn money online. What do you think?

Agree. I don't waste my time with them - I will do "combination" sites that offer those, as well as surveys and such as long as I have luck qualifying for the surveys. Some sites like Quick Rewards and Inbox Dollars are fine for that. Or Memolink. I just do them when I have a bit of spare time (rarely) and am letting the money pile up as there is no deadline for cashing out. In a year I am up to 34.00 bucks on Quick Rewards and about 35.00 on Memolink. On Inbox dollars I've cashed out over 70 bucks in two years, and now have about 14.25 towards next cashout. I figure by letting the money pile up, I'll just wait till it's around a hundred dollars, cash out, and treat myself to something nice. I refuse to do anything where there is a fee. Turns out it looks like my husband suffered a few "mini strokes" recently, and I need to be on the alert next time it occurs. I thought that might be the problem but wasn't sure. It also means I have even less time to work now, with constant interruptions, yet need to do more to make more money. He would probably be better off somewhere else, but we can't afford it. Yet we can't afford this, either. Talk about a dilemma.

I definitely much prefer writing; I keep these as little "side" projects to do when I have perhaps ten or fifteen minutes at most to spare - or when I first wake up in the morning, before I'm really fully awake enough to write coherently...lol. The money adds up that way, I'm in no hurry to cash out the little bits so I can just let those bits accumulate, and then before I know it - I've got fifty or sixty bucks in time for someone's birthday or the holidays. I've been accumulating my current earnings at amazon turk the past few months because there's a sideboard I want for my kitchen from amazon - it costs 149.00 - and I'm up to 124.00 so far - not much left. I could probably kick in the rest of the money, but I want to do it all this way. Just like some other sites are my savings for a new computer - and I finally have enough. It will be ordered this week - yah!

I like the way you think. You motivate yourself in such a way and you will alaways manage to accomplish what you wish for like that. I also like the fact that you allow them to accumulate. It may take time, but someday you manage to cashout after all!

I also think so, but where and how? Do you know something better than iWriter and Experts Column? Yesterday I wrote 4 articles, today I can hardly get one as all the great topics are grabbed. Where can you make fifty bucks or more a day? Where you get paid at least $5 an article?

50 bucks or more a day?! I think you are being extremely greedy to make that amount of money daily when working online!
