Last year I blogged about how awesome being on the Pinecone Research Panel was and it made me want to find out if there were any other equally awesome ways to make money online. So I checked out many sites and came across SendEarnings.com and decided to check out if they were legit or not. They are legit… but I’m not recommending them unless you really (really really really) need every penny you could get and are willing to wait a very long time to get paid.
SendEarnings offers many different ways to earn money. I decided to just make money by reading emails – which explains why it took me over a year to get paid (you can request your check once you have earned $30). Once you sign up you can receive paid email which are emails they send you with information and links. When you click on the link you earn yourself a penny or two. Which is totally understandable because you ARE just getting paid to click on links. The email links lead you to various sites with new products, information about health conditions or financial aid, special offers and more. Some of these emails give you a chance to earn more money by signing up for their particular site or service. I’ve seen many of these types of offers and the extra money you could earn usually ranges from about 50 cents to $5.
Usually to earn extra money you have to provide your information (name, address, telephone number, email) to the website that SendEarnings has linked you to. I personally do not like giving my information out so I passed a majority of these extra offers up. However if you don’t mind giving your info out to earn extra money then knock yourself out! You probably won’t have to wait a year for a $27 check like me! I did take part in some of these offers though: signed up to receive health information, signed up for a newsletter, and registered for some online survey sites. And SendEarnings DID credit me for all of them. They have a page where you can view your current earnings to keep track of how much money you have earned which I thought was great.
Other extra money offers via email included trying out things like Netflix, which you would eventually have to pay monthly for but I thought it was kinda neat to earn some extra cash just to sign up for something you were planning on paying for anyways.
As I mentioned above, you have to earn $30 to request a check, and it took me over a year to earn that through clicking on emails alone. While on vacation I’d read these emails daily. But when I’m busy I read them once a week (those emails can pile up) which was fine except a few emails would expire because I read them too late. This was really not a big deal, I mean I AM just clicking on links.
Besides it taking forever to earn money on SendEarnings.com, I only have two complaints about them. They’re supposed to credit you when you refer a member who is active, and that never happened. Second, I requested my check on March 13th because I FINALLY reached $30 and they notified me that my check will be processed on May 3rd, which I expected. However they also stated that “Payments are not processed on inactive accounts. You must stay active by confirming your Paid Email messages or your payment request will be removed.” 😐 Not cool SendEarnings, not cool! So I had to keep clicking emails until I got my check! I got it now so I’m done! No mas!
All in all though, SendEarnings is a legit company and a good way to make a buck here and there through their special cash offers, using their grocery coupons, shopping online and… reading emails 😐 The best way to use SendEarnings, in my opinon, is for items or services that you planned on purchasing anyways… but with SendEarnings you make a few extra bucks from it. It’s not much but can add up in the long (longgggg) run 🙂
I included photos of the check I just received this week as proof that SendEarnings is a legit company and I am going to deposit it today!
