I’ve opened a ticket and received a response back with the information they requested the same day. They are very fast and professional in responding to support requests.

BuxP Payment Proof:


BuxP Review: I had originally joined BuxP as a way to generate referrals by exchanging earnings for advertising, but in September 2014 decided to try a cash out. This is an honest and legit site, and there are many payment proofs posted on the internet to prove it. There are always lots of ads to click each day, and many days I can’t finish them all.

PaidViewpoint.com – 6th Payment Received!

Originally posted 09/01/11

Name: PaidViewpoint.com

Type of program: Survey site

Date joined: 8-20-2011

Referral program? Yes. They will pay $1.00 for every referral who completes six “biz surveys”.

URL: http://paidviewpoint.com/?r=qcdsrd

Amount earned: $112.03

Paid? Yes!  Minimum payment is $15.00. Payment is made via PayPal. Payments come hours after being requested!

Paid Viewpoint Payment Proof:


Signup bonus incentives? Yes, they offer $1.10 bonus at registration when you complete and validate your signup.

Recommended? Definitely! This site is brought to us by the same people who do InstantCashSweepstakes. The founders have a history of valid and legitimate business practices and have a long term history of paying on time.

One important thing to note is the referral requirement. It states on the page that you will earn $1.00 when your referral completes six “biz surveys’. There is a difference between a biz survey and a “traits survey”, which is what I receive the most. The traits surveys seem to be general consumer profiles, which are paying $0.10 each so far. If you get a referral but don’t get paid your $1.00 right away, I wouldn’t be upset. It probably means they are still building their demographic profile at the site and haven’t been presented with a business survey yet.

Zoombucks Payment Proof:


Initial impression and review:

ZoomBucks is a multi-portal GPT site very similar to Swagbucks, but with a few cool extra incentives. You earn in much the same way, but they also have a paid to promote program you can apply for. In all honesty I didn’t spend a whole lot of time there, and think I should give them a second look, as this seems to be a good extra earning alternative.

Recommended? Yes, definitely!

SurveySavvy – Paid 10 Times

Name: Survey Savvy

Program type: Surveys

Date joined: 12/07/2010

Referral Program? Yes

International? All countries accepted

URL: https://www.surveysavvy.com?id=4513908&action=join

Amount made: $86.10 Paid

Paid? Yes! Checks arrive about one month after being requested.

As you can see, this is one of the slowest-paying sites out there, but they do pay. You can request payment in as little as $1.00 amounts, but they only pay by check.

Survey Savvy Payment Proof:

This page was getting a little too long with the check images, so from now on I’ll just put in my most recent checks:

Referral program? Yes

URL: http://www.instantcashsweepstakes.com/invitations/ref_link/186941

Amount made: $94.06

Paid? Yes! Less than 24 hours after requested, they show up in my mailbox. These are tiny amounts, but they do add up.  What a fun site this is.

Instant Cash Sweepstakes Payment Proof:

Last 20 payments from ICS are below. Older payments can be found here  or here for anyone wanting to see additional screenshots. Some of the larger amounts in the screenshot are from the sister site, PaidViewpoint.

Recommended? Yes. Others have spoken highly of this program. It’s fast and easy. And very addictive! Obviously it’s not a huge earner, but what is so impressive is the way they pay 100% matching wins on all referrals. This can really add up fast.

Name: eBates

Type of program: Cash Back Shopping, Paid Referrals

Date joined: 11/2003

Referral program? Yes, they pay $5.00 per referral when a member you refer places their first order. They also offer affiliate referral via GlitterNetwork.

URL: http://www.ebates.com/

Amount earned: $407.35 Paid

Paid? You bet! Always right on time. Once your balance reaches $5.01, they make payments quarterly. If your balance is below that, it’s carried over to the next quarter. They pay via check, PayPal and Amazon Gift Card.

If you choose the Amazon Gift Card option, they pay you a week sooner than scheduled, plus add an extra dollar to your payment! Cool!

eBates Payment Proof:

PayPal, Amazon and check payments from eBates.com

PayPal, Amazon and check payments from eBates.com


Recommended? Definitely. On a lot of the sites I belong to, I see many offer cash back shopping, but I think none of them are as generous as eBates. While it’s not strictly a freebie site, as you do need to make a purchase to get paid, I think it’s a good one to keep a membership at. When I’m going to a website that I know I am going to make a purchase from, such as WalMart.com or Drugstore.com, I’ll log into eBates first just so I can get my cash back. I also make sure to always do my Christmas shopping through eBates to earn money back and larger discounts.

I’m not going to track my amount received prior to 12/01/2010 in my sidebar because  I’m only tracking money received after that, but I am adding this to the $$ Received label.

This site is honest, trustworthy, and has stood the test of internet time. I definitely recommend it.
