I just redeemed points for another $50 Amazon gift card from YouGov. This has been my third payout over the past year, for a total of $115.
I even missed several surveys, so I would have actually made a bit more than that since they are pretty generous with points
YouGov has been listed on my site for a while now, and I have written about it in the past. I just felt the need to share again, since it’s proving to provide a decent amount of extra money for the time spent on it.
If you are interested in trying out YouGov, please use my referral link. I will receive extra points, which I greatly appreciate.
Just so that you are aware, there are two apps. YouGov is the Panel app for surveys, which can also be done on a computer. YG Pulse is the app that runs in the background of your phone, automatically accumulating points.
I’ve been working on getting more companies added to the Financial Tips page whenever I have a moment. YouGov Pulse VPN seemed to be a great one to add next. It’s an app that just runs in the background of your phone. Once in a while, I get a notification to reconnect it. Somehow my phone drops off. I think it’s because I have another similar app running so they are conflicting, but it hasn’t affected my earnings.
That’s literally all you need to do to accumulate points. I also receive emails on occasion to take a survey. They aren’t too lengthy and they pay out a decent amount of points. Since I’ve downloaded this, I’ve made $15. That’s pretty good since the most I do is a random survey.
I just added My Points to the ongoing list of places to make a few bucks.
They’ve been around since 1996. I’ve been using the site since 2010. Back then, there was no app. I used to get tons of Barnes & Nobles gift cards just by clicking on emails and a few other quick tasks. Then I forgot about the site for a while, until I recently started using it again. Otherwise, my lifetime points would be much higher than 8,114.
Points don’t seem to accumulate as quickly as they used to for me, but it’s still worth it. It only takes a few moments to complete a few tasks like taking surveys, playing games, shopping via the app, clicking on emails, and more. Since I started using the app, I’ve made $10 in Amazon gift cards so far.
Try it out using my referral link, and let me know what you think.
