I have been trying different site for quite some time now and I realized that the free to sign up site will pay you something but you will have to spend alot of time working it. For instance MyLot. You can b e paid a small amount each month but it will take lots of time. I realized early on that I will use this sites only to keep in touch with my friends. When I get paid that is gravy on my potatoes! I have used ClixSense for months. It does add up enough that when I have some credit I use it for advertizing. But I did pay to upgrade it so it really wasn't free. There are new ones every day. I have grown tired of trying them. If a ptr site pays at least 1 cent per click I will try it. I will no longer waste time on sites that pay less then a cent. I mean good gosh I time must be worth more then that! A few weeks ago I tried a site that I paid $9.00 to join. It is well worth it with just the advertizing ideas. They almost take you by the hand! I have struggled for some time now finding decent ad sites that I can afford to promote environmental awareness,find new business leaders for both Shaklee and Pampered Chef. I have learned so much. Some of you out there probably know how to enter your sites in the search engines, which ad sites are best etc but I am still learning and am so psyched with what I learned.So I tryed to advertize this site and soon had others sign up ( I get $7 each time) and call or email about other business ventures that are taught on the same site. So now believe it or not I am training new people almost daily..This Site is available in all countries! A couple of sites that didn't pay me after I tryed products were Treasure Trooper,PandaResearch. PandaResearch was aweful. I spend money to try products because I would make more in the end...Sounds good ,no? It would be if they paid but they didn't. I had made $157 and had spent over $70 to try things..They didn't pay and I just got form emails when I contacyed them! Treasure Trooper just didn't give me credit for the items I tryed.I made sure that I did everything necessary and still they didn't credit me. No answer to my emails.My daughter signed with Vonage which cost her $30 to try and she never got credit for it either. So beware of these sites! I have been paid by SendEarnings,Hits4Pay,CashCrate,FusionCash,InBoxDollars,DealsNCash,MyLot. Most of these are available in all countries. Do you have anything to share that may help your friends on MyLot? Let's help each other.

I have signed up for soo many things, that I can't even keep track of them anymore. They all sound good until you use them for a while to see that it takes a lot more time than it's worth. I stay at home with my kids and want to be able to make money at home. You hear it all the time that it's possible, but how do you get past the scams and the time wasters??? Who knows. I just signed up for cashcrate, hits4pay and dealsncash - will see where those go. I have tried the seandearnings and inboxdollars with no avail.. I don't have a credit card, because I refuse to get one, which doesn't help. Plus, I'm a firm believer that if it costs something to get money, than it's not worth it - who knows how long it'll take to get your money and I'm sure the companies know that you aren't paying complete attention to detail and they end up not giving you your credits and you don't even notice it. Maybe I'm really out there thinking that I can make money at home, but I gotta keep trying. There has got to be something out there so that I can stay at home with my children and not let someone else raise them and still be able to make some money.. Any suggestions, especially ones that you know for a fact are true and work, will be greatly appreciated!.. THANKS!!! :)

I heard about this place from another forum that I am a member of called MyPowerMall. It is basically a shopping site, where you get cash back for shopping online at places like Target, WalMart, Borders, etc. You get your own mall and shop there and also get others to shop there and you earn cash back for every purchase you or someone you referred makes. It is completely free so they say. So if you like to shop online and know other people who like to shop online then it might work for you. The work part of it is getting other people to sign up for their own and then you get a portion of what they buy, also getting people to shop from your mall. The people I know who have one simply love it. They do get paid and have posted picture proof of it and I trust them. It is not something that interests me, but It might be something for you to check out.

Hi, My name is Doug. I am new to this site, in fact I just signed up today. I have to say your article was full of great information. Thank you for sharing. You've made me a believer in this site already. Nice to meet you all. I look forward to reading more of your articles.

I use SendEarnings and CahsCrate too but have not made enough yet to be paid. I have been paid from SendMoreInfo mutiple times. I really love MyPoints too even though they don't pay cash. I use it all year and then around this time I cash in all my points for Wal-Mart gift cards and use those to get Christmas Gifts, so it is sort of like a savings account to help with Christmas. I don't mind, in fact I actually enjoy the sites that I work at like SFI. I have been a member for almost 8 years and have been paid multiple times, but I do need to work at it every day. I just recently go into freebie sites. It was something I have never heard of before but I am making money with it although the large money requires more work and experience, but I am about ready to jump into that. If interested you can find out more about it at www.giddymoney.com. It does take time, effort and some money upfront. It is really a long term solution for making money, not a get rich quick thing, but I love it. Of course most of my money online is made from eBay. I know alot of people don't like eBay because of the fees, but tome it is worth it. I have recently set up an eBay store with eBooks and have pretty much everything automated, so all I really have to do is keep adding new items to my store. It was labor intensive to get it all up but now it is a breeze.

I think the key to making money online is to be consistent and persistent. There are a lot of programs out there that will suck a lot of your time, and it's better for you to find one that doesn't take you as much time, and has an affiliate system like MyLot.

The sites I have found that are good are Opinion outpost which is a survey site, Helium where you write articles, Review Stream is the best, Guestnow, associated content, Thisisby.us these places are awesome and I will send anyone an invite to any of them if you send me a private message.

If you have a website check out.. http://www.money4banners.com/?aff=10791 you can add banners from this site, and just leave them there... you will get £10/ $20 for signing up, and placing the banners up, and then £5/ $10 per month that they stay up there. Hope this is useful for a few people. Thanks.

Hi raydene! I am still looking for other sites that can pay more but it is only myLot that i have been active on and pays for real. Witht the other sites and some you have mentioned, I was not paid either. I am not giving up and hopefully one day, might find something that will suit me and pays well. Take care and good luck. Have a nice day my friend. :)

There are a lot of programs which will pay you money, but there are not really many that you can earn good on, unless you get a lot of active referals. The money is in signing people up, set up a bog about money making websites maybe?
