Get paid to shop

There are plenty of ways to shop online and get cash back for it. For example, eBates or SwagBucks both have great shopping programs and reward you for shopping at regular online stores like Amazon, Best Buy, etc.

What about local places like Target or Wal-Mart? Leaving the house, getting groceries… That’s where Ibotta comes in! You can pick out your shopping list before you go, or just look through and find your purchases when you get home. I do it the second way, but you’ll earn more money the first way.

You just scan the barcodes with your mobile phone’s camera through their app (Apple iOS and/or Android) and scan the receipt. It’s really that simple. Here’s a screenshot of my earnings since I got started:

As you can see you can cash out several ways: PayPal, Amazon, Starbucks, and more.

PaidViewPoint – Surveys that Pay (Proof!)

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

paidviewpoint

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 Edit August 5, 2016: Zoombucks has been replaced by Grabpoints.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.

SimpleGPT update

In July an update was pushed out regarding SimpleGPT. The update was put out via Points4Rewards, which was previously the ‘sister site’ to SimpleGPT.

Many of you know that I also own the site SimpleGPT. Unfortunately that site is no longer accessible. There was a server crash about a week ago, and everything was lost. I am told it is not recoverable. I have no access to the site, no access to my admin panel, no access to member’s information, etc. At this time, it is unlikely that I will start SimpleGPT over from scratch. I owned and ran that site for 6 years. This is not how I pictured it coming to an end. I am very sad and devastated over this. SimpleGPT is currently being redirected to this site. If you try to go to simplegpt.com, it will take you to Points4Rewards instead. The 2 sites are very similar. Other than the design and layout, they are nearly identical.

This message will be stickied, and every new member who joins should have this message in their inbox (until I decide to take it down). If anyone asks what happened to SimpleGPT, you can direct them to this inbox message.

Here is what I was told from shiftcode regarding the server crash:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control and the control of our previous tracking provider (PerformaNetwork / Shiftcode) our server drive failed due to a bad installation on their end and lost all data. The server company is currently working on trying to recover any lost data that they can find, however it is unlikely we will be able to recover anything at this point.”

That sucks, but it is what it is. So… check out Points4Rewards!

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:

Tapporo is a great site where you can get paid to complete offers, try new apps/games, watch videos, and invite your friends to join in on iOS and Android devices. You can see my other posts about it by clicking here. You can read more on their website here.

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.
