PhotobucketAs a stay-at-home mom a few dollars can mean a big difference, and besides blogging, I do a lot of little things here and there to help out with the extras in my family’s budget. Earning money online has turned out to be easier than I ever thought, and when I started on my online money making journey four years ago, I never dreamed that I would be as successful as I have been. It cannot pay the bills, but it is adding a good amount of money to our budget. It has been a trial and error process, but after years of exploring the earning money online world, I have found a few favorites that I stick with, while I am always on the look out for the next great site. One of my favorite websites is Instant Cash Sweepstakes.

Instant Cash Sweepstakes is one of those sites, where I earn a little here and there, but if I add it all up, it turns out to be a good deal. Instant Cash Sweepstakes pay via paypal, and the minimum payout is $2. My paypal savings are used for gifts for family and friends, and Instant Cash Sweepstakes has been a big help toward Christmas gifts. Thanks to all of my online earnings, I did not have to take any money out of the household budget towards Christmas, and there will be no credit card bills in January either. I usually earn about $10 each month, and in the months where I win the drawings, I can easily earn more, if you add this up for the year you will see that it is actually a pretty good deal.

At Instant Cash Sweepstakes all I do is answer very brief surveys. I get paid $0.01 to $0.10 every time I answer the surveys, and I can answer surveys every three hours. It was a bit tedious at first, but as soon as moved up a level (by answering surveys consistently) I began receiving $0.05 or more quite frequently, and it started adding up very fast. Besides earning cents for answering the short surveys, I found out that the more often I answered the surveys the bigger the payment I get, and it is actually adding up much faster than in the beginning. It might not sound like much, but it sure adds up fast.

The key to Instant Sweepstakes is to answer all the questions in every session until you see your green profile page. Don’t just stop, once you receive your payment for the session, wait until there is no more questions to answer. This way you can get paid every three hours.

The more questions you answer, the better the truthscore you get, and the higher the level you end up at. I started out at level 1, and one year later I am at level 10. This means that I get more tickets and coins, which can be entered into drawings.

Every time I have about 100,000 coins I enter them into the two hour drawing, and I have won it several times, which boost my earnings. The key to entering the drawings is to save up your coins until you have a decent amount 50,000+, and once you do, make sure to enter at a time that you think few people enter. As an example I was up late last night, and I figured less people would be there to enter, so I entered 90,000 coins. Sure enough, when I woke up this morning $2 dollars had been added to my account, and I immediately cashed out.

As with any online earning program, I cash out as soon as I can to prevent losing any of my earnings. If I find a program I like and trust, I make sure to tell my friends about it, but I only write about the programs I have actually been paid from, and which I feel are trustworthy. I have been a member of Instant Cash Sweepstakes for about 1 1/2 years, and I have never encountered any payment issues.

The first time you cash out, it will take out a few extra cents of your earnings. But after that, everything you earn will go straight into your paypal account. 

I am a big fan of Instant Cash Sweepstakes for several reasons:
  • It is easy and fast
  • I can answer questions every 3 hours.
  • I can do it on my own schedule
  • It pays in paypal
  • It pays fast (seriously a few hours after redemption and the money is in my paypal account)
  • You can actually win the drawings. 
  • You get matching earnings, when your friends sign up. 
Earning money online tip: Be consistent, make a bookmark list of sites you need to go to every day. The more consistent you are, the more money you will earn.

If you would like to join Instant Cash Sweepstakes, I would of course love it, if you would sign up under me – you can do so here.
If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I’ll get right back to you.
