Cash Crate: Cash Cow Or Spam Signup Service?
I while ago I signed up for Cashcrate.com through an affiliate link on a friend's website. They had done a review of the service, talked about how they were making quite a bit of extra spending money every month filling out surveys, taking questionnaires, and how it wasn't hard to get a check every month once you signed up.
Naturally I was a bit skeptical of the whole idea, and while I decided to sign up, I went in with my eyes wide open. Instead of signing up with my normal email address, I signed up with an email address that I use only for email offers, spammy sites and signing up for things where I'll be getting a bunch of emails I didn't really want or need.
Signing Up For Cash Crate
Signing up for CashCrate.com was easy. I just clicked on someone's affiliate link to get to the site. Once on the site I entered my first and last name, my email and a password and I was set to go.
From there I was able to start taking surveys and signing up for different offers to get payouts. I think from start to finish it only took a couple of minutes to get going.
Using Cash Crate
Once signed up you just need to start completing and submitting offers and filling out surveys to start piling up the money. Once you reach $10 in your account CashCrate.com will send you a check on your specified payout day.
Probably the easiest way to start getting money in your account from the get-go is by selecting to complete offers that are “100% free” so that you don't have to pay anything to complete the offers. To do that just sort them by type and payout as shown below. The highest paying offers will show up at the top of the list.
Be careful because the top paying offers are often for things like payday loans and other services that you might not really want to get involved with.
Other offers can sometimes be confusing as well. For example, some offers will ask you to fill out a form to receive payout, but you often don't have to fill out anything past the first page. For example, on the offer below all you should have to do is just fill out your email address, submit, and then submit the confirmation on cashcrate. However, when you submit your email it will ask for further information, have you fill out a survey, etc etc. You don't HAVE to go past that first page.
Does It Work?
So far I've been reasonably happy with Cashcrate.com. I've been able to reach the payout amount in less than 2 days of surfing when I had a free moment. In two days of surfing I've currently got $11.69 in earnings with another $21.50 pending. Not bad for a couple hours of clicking in my free time! On top of that you can earn referrals by referring other people to use the service.
Try It Out
If you're interested you can try it out by signing up through my affiliate link here:
When signing up, remember that you might want to use an throwaway email address, or sign up for a new one because you WILL be getting emails from companies you do the surveys through, etc.
Let me know what you think once you've signed up!
