Making Money Using Cash Crate – A Step By Step Guide

Cash Crate – An Easy Way To Make Some Extra Money

In a post a while back I talked about how I was able to make some extra money using, and how you can do the same thing.  I’ve now been with the service for over 4 years, and I’m still earning a check every month.  This past month  I made $366.77 just by filling out surveys, and also by referring new users to the service.  Not too bad for something that doesn’t take much time.

In my review of the service I didn’t get very detailed on how to setup your account and get started earning money, so I thought today I would take moment to walk through the process in a little more detail for those of you who would like to give it a shot.  Don’t worry, it isn’t very hard and you can be earning your first dollar within minutes!

UPDATE:  Here’s a running tally of how much I’ve made with Cash Crate.  As of 7/2014 I’ve made over $9100!:

Getting Started With Cash Crate

Here is a quick step by step guide to getting started earning your first dollar using Cash Crate.

  1. Get a new email: First, sign up for a new free email address at a website like or  You will be getting a ton of email after signing up and filling out surveys, because a lot of what you’re doing is getting paid to get on someone’s mailing list.  An example email you might set up could be “”.  Make note of what your new email address is.
  2. Sign up for Cash Crate: Sign up for Cash Crate by clicking on this link.  It will take you to a page where you’ll be asked for your basic information including email address (use your new one) and a password.  Once you click on the “Join Now!” button as shown in the screenshot,  it will ask you for your mailing address as well so that they can send you your payment.  Currently payment is made only by check.

  3. Start making money by filling out surveys and accepting offers: Once you’ve signed up for the service you can start making money right on the first day in a couple of different ways.    First, you can fill out surveys.  Just click on the link on your dashboard that says “complete offers” and it will bring you to a page where you can start filling out surveys for cash or for points (points can be redeemed for rewards like Itunes gift cards, Starbucks cards, etc).On my first day using the service I chose to just complete the “cash offers”, that were 100% free. Those offers will pay out a certain cash amount (which it will show under the “payout” heading) and don’t require you to pay anything up front.   Other offers may have higher payouts, but they may require you to use a credit card to sign up for a trial offer, or to pay for a month of service (like one available netflix offer).  Offers can be as simple as filling in your email address (once again, use your newly created email), and as complicated as filling in several pages of survey questions.One thing that I’ve found extremely helpful in completing offers quickly is using an autocomplete form filler like Roboform. Basically what this program does is automatically fill out the forms for you so that you don’t have to manually enter all of your information every time you fill out a survey or trial offer. Just make sure the information it is entering is the correct information because sometimes it will fill in something that isn’t quite right – putting the right information in the wrong field.Once you’ve filled out the survey or or completed an offer, just click on the “submit” link in the Cash Crate window next to the offer you completed.  Your submission will then be added to “pending” payouts, and will be verified. If you didn’t complete enough of an offer, it will be rejected, so be sure to fill it out completely.
    Cash Crate Offers

    Some of the other offers include offers that allow you to get payouts for clicking on a referral link when shopping. For example, I took advantage of a deal through Vista Print that allowed me to get 250 free business cards (with my blog name/url on them). All I had to do was pay shipping.  The shipping cost about $5.75, and my payout from Cash Crate was about $5.  So for 75 cents I was able to get a big box of business cards that I can hand out to people I know, and leave at store bulletin boards etc.  Not bad for a little bit of blog publicity!

  4. Earn money through referrals: You can also earn big money at Cash Crate using referrals. For every new user that you refer to the service, you’ll get paid a small amount for surveys that they fill out, as well as getting a $3 bonus when they complete enough surveys to reach their first $10 payout.  If you have a blog you can promote the Cash Crate site and link to it using your personal referral link. You can write a post (like this one) explaining the site, and referring people to the service. Once you get enough people referred to the service the payouts can be quite nice!  It’s how I make most of my money through them now as I haven’t been filling out surveys for a while due to time constraints.

    I don’t know about Cash Crate but I do know about RoboForm! I actually love the RoboForm software myself. I use it all of the time and it takes all of the menial everyday tasks that I have to perform on my computer daily and shortens them extremely! What once took me fifteen minutes to complete now takes me only one second because RoboForm does the same task with just one click. In fact I wrote a Report about a lot of RoboForm’s capabilities for use that aren’t even touched on in the User’s Manual for RoboForm. You can get that Report here:!1.html

    I am still waiting to get my first check from these guys… when I get it I will be convinced… but for passivefamilyincome, I had the same problem and I came back a couple weeks later and most of the money had moved over – you just have to make sure you press the SUBMIT button after you complete the survey…

    This cash crate website concept reminds me of that came out around the year 2000. Does anyone remember that? They were defunct within a couple of years. Let’s hope that cash crate lasts longer.

    Hi all!
    Cash crate does work…I have been “doing it” since July and here is what I’ve made each month: 13.30,19.35,14.20,26.65,36.50….
    They changed one thing recently, you must have 20.00 in your account every month to get the payout, otherwise your money will roll over into the next month. It’s a good way to make a little extra money, I don’t do referrals at all just the free offers and an occasional survey. A bit of advice, you must open a new e mail addy for around every 4 or 5 offers you complete…and clear your cookies after completing each offer! This really helps a lot!

      To get started, after you do all the stuff above, I would start by doing a few of the cheap .25-.50 cent offers. The surveys usually aren’t too hard, and are usually pretty good about moving from pending to the earned income. Good luck!

  6. Tammy says

    I have filled out many forms, got to the phone number box and it said invalid for sip code. I am using K7 for an online phone number. Anyone know how to get around this?

  7. Tammy says

    I am waiting for pending offers and they haven’t gone through in over a week. Is this usual or did I do something wrong?

    • says

      I’m sure you’re doing nothing wrong, some offers take longer than others to confirm. If you’re patient they almost always go through. Good luck!

    “The Happy Rock August 26, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    Happy Rock raises a good point. is it worth the time? As anyone calculated a $/hour or something?

    PS: Just found the blog, nice work!

  11. Get Paid Online Taking Surveys With CashCrate says

    Ive been using CashCrate for over a year and I absolutely love it. By spending an hour online per day, I am able to earn around $100 per month. Thats perfect for a teen like me who doesnt have much time to get an actual job.

    @ 2 Million: I think it is kinda fitting that you join CashCrate, because they recently reached the 2 million member mark. Pretty amazing for an online money making site.

  12. Tamie says

    Are you Crazy I went on there to the CashCrate site 5 dollars an hur well I guess for teens. Do you know of site you really can earn some money with out being scamed come on 4 cents to watch a video……

  13. Bill says

    Is it worth it?
    I used to do a survey thing online for money, but it seemed I would have to do about 30 surveys ranging from 5 minutes to 30 minutes before I could earn about $5. Can you make money quickly with these surveys?

  14. cashcrater says

    I have filled out all the offers but only like 10% of them actually work, this is fustrating, it tells you to enter a sweepstakes and then youre filling out 30 pages and they still dont credit you. WHAT DO I DO? I cant take this I have $5500 worth of student loans to pay back, how do I get the offers to work anybody please?

  15. says

    I am concerned that cash crate will cost ME money. I am almost down with the sign up process but I was told I had to set up a fedex and ups ‘personal’ account first. When I tried to do this, fedex told me they needed a credit card number from me to set up the account and I had to pay for shipping out the envelopes.
    i asked cashcrate and did not understand this process. Can anyone help please? Im 62 and need money, but certainly not to pay it out?

    • says

      I don’t think you should have to sign up for UPS or FEDEX to become a member of cash crate. Are you sure you’re not doing one of the offers? Some of those may require a purchase or trial period, but you’re in no way required to do them?

  16. says

    I recently made $20 on Cash Crate. It took a really long time (plus the surveys take forever), but I am interested in referring friends which from I can see is where the money is made. I also run a blog and was wondering how I can get my offer on Cash Crate. For example, I would be willing to pay $0.25 to anybody who likes my page on Facebook, follows me on Twitter, and signs up for my mailing list. It would take about 10 seconds to make that $0.25.

  17. says

    I just joined CashCrate last week and so far I have made a little over $28.00. The offers are fun and easy and they really take no time at all to complete. I was a little skeptical about it at first, but after seeing their payment wall I was convinced. I am currently waiting on my first check to be mailed in January! :)

    Cashcrate is awesome, it’s the first place I’ve managed to make money online. Realistic amount of cash every month. great for anyone, ideal for highschoolers.

  19. says

    I’ve gotten 4 checks from CashCrate personally, and I’m going to get the biggest one yet this coming month. I’m up to nearly $60, and have done very little work to get it. If I can get this much every month, it will be a nice way to help the monthly income.

  20. Sarah says

    Well i wanna sign up But i don’t know if it will cost Me. Do you pay the shipping of the check? I live in Norway so i’m a bit worried if its gonna cost me then.. sometimes its difficult to be a teen.. :I

  21. Rose says

    I’ve made a TON of money over the past two years with Cash Crate – definitely recommend it.I have made close to $3000 using this great Get Paid To Site. The amazing part is I’ve spent only about 6 hours a week on this site and I’ve earned $300 in 1 month! I can’t urge you enough to try it out for yourself.

    • Sid says

      Hi Rose,

      I joined CashCrate today.
      Could you give me some actionable tips as to how did you make $300 a month?
      Would really appreciate it.

      Thanks in advance!,
