Lockerz info

So, for a while now, I myself have been wondering whether is a scam. The redemptions have been so rare, and when they did happen, I was never able to get a prize, and haven't seen enough proof that others have either.

However, in the January redemption, I finally was able to receive a prize - $25 PayPal cash. Not bad for paying nothing and just making about 3 clicks each day.

Like I said before, this is one that is definitely worth trying out.

Lesson 7: SweepstakesToday

If sweepstakes are your thing, you need to be a member of SweepstakesToday. It makes finding and entering contests soooooo easy. It categorizes contests by how often you can enter, and has a rating system for how good the prizes are. I think the minimum value for the prize to appear on the site is $100, so they're all decent.
What is really nice about the site though is some of the little things.
1. They give you a link directly to the entry page, so you don't have to go through all kinds of introductory pages that sponsors put on contests.
2. You can read user comments based on the sweepstakes - especially helpful for ones that aren't working or ones where you need codes.
3. You have a "Lucky List" where you can save all the multiple-entry contests that you want to remember to enter again.

It really is a great webpage, and if you like to enter contests, this is the only way to do it. That and autofill.

Swagbucks Proof

Here is my orders page from Swagbucks. As you can see I've earned $55 in Amazon giftcards and currently have enough points for $10 more. It's so easy, and it comes with absolutely zero junk mail or spam or anything else that you don't want. It's just stupid not to join.

Lesson 6: Winster

Winster is another site where you get prizes just for playing games. Winster has its own set of games which have a social set up. You help people win and they help you win. You earn points for your different achievements, and when you reach a certain number of points, you win a prize.

Right now, my prize is $4 to InboxDollars. Other prizes include DVDS, Amazon gift cards, and many more. While it takes a long time to get these prizes, the games are quite fun, and definitely worth doing in those times where you can't think of anything to do.

Tooltip: Dropbox

Ok, so this one won't make you any money, but it will make your life about 30x better.

If you ever get sick of carrying around flash drives, or find yourself searching through a stack of them to find your file, Dropbox is for you. Dropbox is online file storage.

You get 2 GB free, and can store any kind of file you like. Install the desktop app on all the computers you use, and the files will stay in sync automatically.

I use this site for everything. I upload to Dropbox at home using the desktop app, then pick them up at school using the website to finish my assignments and print them. In addition, you can enable sharing between friends who also use Dropbox. My boyfriend and I share a folder where we can easily send large files to each other.

I seriously suggest you join this site today. 100% free, 100% better.

The most important thing to think about when considering how best to use your time on the internet is what your interests are.

Do you like playing games when you're online? There is a way to get paid for that.
Do you like online shopping? You can make money doing that too.
Social networking? There's money there.

You can find ways to make money and/or earn rewards and free stuff doing just about anything that you are already doing online. The hard part is finding the best sites to help you do that.

Just remember: your time is valuable. Don't do anything for nothing.

Lesson 5: InboxDollars

InboxDollars is just that: money sent to your inbox.
But of course it's not quite that simple. One of the features of InboxDollars is paid emails. They send you an email, you click a link to confirm having opened said email, they pay you $0.02.

Along with paid emails, InboxDollars pays $0.50 for completing surveys, up to $10 for completing offers, cash back for shopping through their affiliate links, and they pay you money for every dollar you spend on cash games at the WorldWinner site, which itself is awfully fun, in that you can make money playing games.

There is a $30 first time minimum cash out, but if you join now, you get $5 just for signing up. After the first cashout, payments are made automatically each week.

Simple money, much of which comes from doing things you already do.
