Wave Goodbye to Instant Cash Sweepstakes (ICS)

Recently it was announced that Instant Cash Sweepstakes, the original site created by Umongous before they came out with the sister site PaidViewPoint, has been shut down.

They’re putting more focus into PaidViewPoint now. While ICS was pretty fun, especially at first, PaidViewPoint is definitely a better survey site overall so I’m personally glad to see more focus being put into it.

PaidViewPoint makes surveys easy and basic to go through, and you get paid quickly. It’s so much better than other survey sites… and even good on mobile browsers.

They pay out in PayPal as well as Amazon gift cards.

Exciting PaidViewPoint Payment Update

I was surprised to discover today that PaidViewPoint has updated their payment methods.

You could always cash out at $15 via PayPal, but now they’ve added Amazon and Wal-Mart gift cards as options as well. I have payment proof for this as well, having tried the Amazon method. I received payment nearly instantly in this case which was fantastic.

PaidViewPoint pays you for short, fun surveys without those annoying 45 minute pre-screeners, where those other guys just drop you off with a “Sorry, maybe next time!” message. I’ve been with PVP for years and they’re fantastic.

PaidViewPoint – Surveys that Pay (Proof!)

I hit the $15 mark and cashed out at PaidViewPoint (PVP). I was paid within 24 hours. Proof included:

You can sign up for PaidViewPoint by clicking this link! The surveys are fun, easy, and simple. You won’t waste an hour on a “Prequalification” only to be told you’re not eligible, like those other sites.

Oh, it’s 2015

Whoops.

So it’s 2015 and there are a lot of older posts on the site leading you to some sites that might suck, or don’t even exist anymore.

I can tell you straight up which sites still actively pay me in 2015:

PaidViewpoint – Easy Surveys, very great site.

ZoomBucks – Videos, Searches, Surveys, Offers, etc. Edit August 5, 2016: Zoombucks has been replaced by Grabpoints. Check out my post about it here!

CashCrate – This one has been around for ages. I think if you’re looking for surveys and offers, these are the best ones to be on. Long standing with a very good history.

PrizeRebel – These guys are another long standing one, specifically aimed at gamers. If you’re into gaming and related stuff, these might be the best ones for you.

InstantCashSweepstakes – If you’re looking to do some fun surveys and win cash, this might be more your style. It’s aimed more at being fun.

eBates – You get paid to shop, basically. X amount of money per purchase. It’s pretty cool, and you don’t have to jump through any hoops. Shop on sites like Amazon or buy.com, etc.

Tapporo – Watch videos on your phone, and a few other cool ways to earn money. They do PayPal, Amazon, etc. It’s neat. Use my code TAPJB1597 to start out with an extra 250 points.

See you in 2016, or whenever I end up posting again.

Payment Proof for ICS/PVP

Here’s a more recent update for you, showing that PaidViewpoint and Instant Cash Sweepstakes are still paying out and things are going well.

To give you a quick rundown on these two sites (owned by the same company):

Instant Cash Sweepstakes (ICS) is a survey site in which you can win random amounts of money in your surveys. Most of the surveys are fun and user-made, with some business surveys tossed in. There are also drawings every 4 hours and every 24 hours through various other methods.

PaidViewpoint (PVP) provides surveys designated by businesses to put out their questions to get answered and you get paid (no winning/chance/luck) for each survey.

You may get the idea that these survey sites aren’t like the others where you do a survey for an hour, then suddenly you find that you’re not qualified and you get $0. No, with these sites you get short surveys that are either fun or straight to the point.

Both sites pay via PayPal.

Wrapping up May with some proof

It’s the end of May and I felt that it would be a good time to drop an update with some proof of payment from a few fantastic websites.

First up, Tapporo:

If you decide to sign up and try it, make sure you use the invite code TAPJB1597 and we’ll both get a bonus. Tapporo pays out by PayPal, Amazon gift cards, and many other options.


Next up we have PaidViewpoint, which is a fantastic survey site. The surveys aren’t 2 hours long and boring. They’re pretty quick, easy, and fun. You get paid for each survey. This site pays out by PayPal.
