CashCrate is #1 in money earning potential than any other survey site. You can do more than just surveys, you can also complete free offers, get referral comission, do online shopping, etc. That is why I am infatuated with this site, it does not limit your income by only doing surveys.
Forms: To complete free offers on CashCrate, you’re required to fill out a few forms per offer. It becomes a little redundant and a waste of time when you have to keep putting your information over and over. There is a program that will fill out all of those boring forms for you, it’s called “RoboForm“. Once you make a profile with all of your information in it, RoboForm will fill out those forms for you. You can also use it on surveys. A toolbar will be added on your internet browser once you install it and with one click, you can fill out forms. Download here
Telephone # There are some offers that may require you to put your phone number such as Brandarama offers. You may get a few calls here and there. To avoid these calls, sign up at Brring! and get your own free personal number. Try to get a number with the area code that matches your home address. What brring! does is when someone calls you at your brring number, they make the caller listen to a 10 sec advertising before the call connects to your phone. Almost certainly telemarketers will hang up before the advertisement is over, meaning you will not receive a call to your phone. Give the telemarketers a taste of their own medicine.
Okay, now you’re ready to do some offers. There are a variety of free offers you can do. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND you do them in this order:
1st: Do all the Register for free/Fill out the form offers. These are very easy and credit fast. Make sure to check your spam folder in case they send a confirmation email.
2nd: Do all the offers that say Register with valid information and complete the survey. Click at least two offers on the Final Steps page. These offers do not send email confirmation. These are simple offers that credit very fast. Just skip offers until you reach the last page which usually says Congratulations or Thank You and make sure click at least two offers.
After you are done with these kinds of free offers, please go to the bottom of this page for my ‘Extended Free Offers Guide.’
CashCrate has the best paying referral system I’ve seen. They have two level referral. Level 1(people you refer): you receive 20% of their earnings. Level 2(people your refers refer): you receive 10% of their earnings. These percentages increase with the addition of US referrals. Here is their referral rankings:
Bronze – 0 Active Referrals – 20% First Level, 10% Second Level
Silver – 50 Active Referrals – 25% First Level, 10% Second Level
Gold – 150 Active Referrals – 25% First Level, 15% Second Level
Platinum – 300 Active Referrals – 30% First Level, 15% Second Level
Elite – 500 Active Referrals – 30% First Level, 20% Second Level
Also, you receive $3 bonus for each referral that reaches the $10 payout.
I would like to emphasize that there is no pressure on you to sign up other people. You can earn good money sticking to the daily surveys and free offers. You will, however, get the most out of CashCrate if you have others participate with you. Take advantage of this great referral system and be sure to check out the Create a Blog/Site page for help in getting referrals.
For the rest of the free offers, You need to know these tips before doing an offer:
Cookies: When ever you do an offer, a cookie will be placed on your computer for recognition purposes. When doing multiple offers from the same company, you already have one of their cookies on your computer, then they will know that you have already done one of their offers, thus making the offer not approve. To avoid this, cookies need to be deleted after every offers. It does not even take a minute to delete cookies. You can use a program called CCleaner. Download here
Emails: most survey companies keep a database of emails that were used on their surveys, for tracking purposes, so if you use the same email more than once, they will know that they already have your information, and would probably not give you credit for completing that offer. I would suggest changing emails frequently, so you will get more offers to approve. You don’t really want to spend time making a bunch of emails do you? THEN USE GMAIL! So, since gmail doesn’t read periods in their email addresses, take advantage of that! For example:
All of the above would go to firstname.lastname@example.org. Survey companies would consider each and every one of those a different email address, which makes it easier for you to get more surveys approved. I would suggest making a new gmail account frequently. . Here is a guide with steps to completing offers from specific advertisers. It is suggested to only do one offer per company at a time. For example you do an offer, submit it to pending, check email for confirmation email, go to a different offer from a different advertiser while waiting for the prior one to credit. After it credits feel free to go do another from them. DO NOT LOAD YOUR PENDINGS OVER $2.00. LESS IS BETTER.
(BBS) Big Bucks Survey – Go until you see “Congratulations and thank you for your participation! You’ve been entered to win in our sweepstakes!” *Answer questions with asterick* Make sure you uncheck the “remember my info on this computer” box. There should be a confirmation email in your spam box. Open and click the confirmation link.
(BSP) Brand Survey Panel – Submit 2nd page
(BRA) Brandarama Offers – Only do one offer from this company per day. Make sure your pop-up blocker is off.On page 1, fill out e-mail address. (make sure you have never used this email address on another brandarama offer). Fill out page 2. Brandarama does check your telephone area code against your zip code, so make sure you use a valid phone number with the correct area code for your area. After you hit submit on page 2 you will either go to the “survey” or get a pop up that says “Congratulations you have completed the survey requirements and are almost done!” If you get this pop right away, you can skip step 5 and go to step 6. If you get the survey after page 2 you must complete the survey for this to credit. Very easy though, you can hit “skip” or “no” all the way through. Once you get to the Congratulations page, click on one offer and leave the pop-ups open. Go down to the bottom of the page and you’ll have a link that says something like “After you’ve completed the required offers above click here to go to the next page” or “After you’ve completed the required offers above, click here for bonus offers.” If you have to go to another page, click one offer on that page. Continue until you reach the bonus offers page and open that. Leave all windows open for 2 to 5 minutes. Go back to the CashCrate and hit submit. If asked put in the e-mail address you used on page 1. DO NOT click on any confirmation email brandarama sends you… it will hurt your chances for getting other offers approved.
