HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT ) – WHNT NEWS 19’s Money Saving Monday is all about helping you keep you hard-earned cash.
But we’ve found ways you can earn free cash online, sitting in your Pj’s in the comfort of your own home.
They are really cool websites, where you can get free money, with very little effort. And that’s the best kind of money to save!
Some up front information: these services work for those who shop and buy online. They are cash back websites.
First, Mr. Rebates.com helps you make the merchants pay you.
Jst by creating an account, you earn $5.00 cash rebate, but you can’t collect until your rebate balance hits $10. Then, you can ask for a check or get the money through a PayPal account.
Hundreds of merchants are listed on the site and offer up to 30 percent off items or up to $15 cash.
Furthermore, they list other coupons available from that merchant.
Next, ebates.com. It works the same way as Mr. Rebates and opens you up to another 2,000 stores.
It should be noted the online stores you’re shopping actually pay the Cashback websites a commission, and they, in turn, pay you.
Here’s another one: get-paid.com.
On this one, you make money by taking surveys. The payments don’t seem to be huge, but over time they can add up.
Critics of these sites warn, you get what you pay for. If you do an online review of these sites, you’ll see success stories and some unhappy customers.
It is what you make of it, if you have the time and computer to spare.
