Cash Crate check in the mail
Yesterday afternoon I checked the mailbox and instead of the usual bills that I don't enjoy opening, I got one of those nice letters with the tear-off panels. You know the ones – the ones that have a check inside.
That's right I finally got my first check for participating in Cash Crate! My first month using Cash Crate, July, I got a total of $27.64 for filling out surveys, signing up for free trials and referring other users. Here's the check!
What's even more exciting is how much I've made so far in August. This month I've already made almost over twice that – $50.09 $56.49 $60.06 as of this update writing this post! The month still has almost a week left!
So if you were on the fence as to whether using Cash Crate would really be worth your time, hopefully this will convince you. As long as you follow my step by step guide to using Cash Crate, sign up for a throw away email address and use it – and refer your friends, you can make money using their site as well. Hey, you might even make enough to pay your cable bill (if you have one – and I don't!). As for me, I'm adding this money to our vacation fund for our cruise in 2 weeks!
Stay tuned, this week I'm going to be starting to use another similar service called SwatCash.com that some friends have recommended to me. Who knows, maybe it'll work as well as Cash Crate!
