‘Get-paid-to’ websites are great for earning some extra cash online by doing simple things that you either enjoy or already do online.
The whole get-paid-to industry has been around for many a year, but it is currently more popular than ever as people look for simple ways to earn some extra cash in their spare time.
So today I would like to share with you the get-paid-to websites that I use to top up my online income. Collectively these websites offer the greatest variation in tasks, and the best earning potential in return for your time.
*Get-paid-to websites often restrict what you can earn from them each day. If you like the whole idea of ‘getting-paid-to’, joining more than one or even all of the following websites will give you greater earning potential.
No, this is not a joke! There really is a website called getpaidto.com, and it just so happens to be one of the most established and popular websites within the get-paid-to industry.
Established back in 2000, getpaidto.com has evolved many times over the years before the last major update in 2015 when a more functional interface was introduced.
GetPaidTo uses a points-based system where your points can be cashed out via Paypal, directly to your bank or through gift cards.
There are 4 main ways to earn points/cash at GetPaidTo:
- Watching videos.
- Playing games.
- Taking surveys.
- Receiving cashback and vouchers for shopping online.
In addition, you can also bump up your bank balance by completing ‘GetPaidTo Tasks’ and taking part in daily prize draws. You can also earn some extra cash by referring your friends to GetPaidTo.
If you’re a fan of getting cashback and voucher codes from online retailers, this is probably the most rewarding aspect of GetPaidTo.
There are currently 29 cashback and voucher code categories available, so by making any online purchases through GetPaidTo you will get substantial discounts on anything that you buy.
What I like about GetPaidTo:
- Fresh and intuitive user-interface.
- Great variation of ways to earn some extra cash.
- Excellent range of cashback opportunities.
- The Cash Alert browser extension instantly alerts you when new earning opportunities are available.
If reputation alone is anything to go by, PrizeRebel is up near the very top of the pile of trusted get-paid-to websites that offer you many ways to top up your bank balance.
PrizeRebel offers the usual variety of get-paid-to tasks that you will find on the other websites mentioned in this guide, including: watching videos, completing tasks, playing games, taking part in contests and completing surveys.
However, it’s the finer details that makes PrizeRebel stand out, and these small but important factors make it a necessary website to add to your get-paid-to portfolio.
Firstly, PrizeRebel uses a points-based system where $5 is equal to 500 points. The great thing about this is, you can cash out as little as $5, so you can very quickly earn a payout. Rewards are also processed in 24 hours or less.
Payments can be sent to you either by Paypal or via one of the many digital gift cards available.
PrizeRebel is also available worldwide providing you are over the age of 18. Even if you are younger, you can still join with your parents consent.
With a low payment threshold and a variety of ways to easily rack up points, PrizeRebel is the ideal get-paid-to website if you are looking to earn some extra cash quickly.
What I Like about PrizeRebel:
- Excellent range of get-paid-to opportunities.
- Available to anyone worldwide.
- Very low minimum payout threshold ($5).
- Earnings can be received within 24 hours.
CashCrate has been around for many years and also feels a bit ‘old school’. But with its large choice of earning options and devoted community of members, it ranks high on my list of the best get-paid-to websites.
CashCrate was one of the first get-paid-to websites that I ever came across, and to this day it still contributes to my online income.
It’s home to the usual array of get-paid-to opportunities including: playing games, completing offers, taking surveys, watching videos, getting cashback by making online purchases at specific online stores plus referring friends to CashCrate.
At CashCrate you earn directly in US Dollars, and the minimum pay out threshold is $20. There’s also a payment gallery wall where members post proof of their earnings.
It’s not unheard of for experienced members to earn over $100 per month at CashCrate, but let’s not forget that earnings at this level require a lot of commitment and effort.
CashCrate is available to anyone over the age of 13 around the world. However, those living in English-speaking countries will get the greater amount of earning opportunities.
What I like about CashCrate:
- It’s relatively easy to earn a reasonably good get-paid-to income.
- Available to anyone over the age of 13 around the world.
- Occasionally CashCrate offers a cash reward just for signing up.
- Very active members forum and CashCrate community with support on tap.
ClixSense is certainly not as modern-looking as GetPaidTo or PrizeRebel, but just like CashCrate it has built up a strong reputation over the years and is very popular with get-paid-to fans around the world.
ClixSense started out in 2007 as a paid-to-click (PTC) website, but has since transitioned into a much broader get-paid-to website.
At the time of writing this, earning opportunities at ClixSense include: taking surveys, playing games, watching videos, testing websites and apps, completing tasks, Figure Eight (formerly CrowdFlower) and referring your friends and family to the program.
ClixSense rewards you directly in US Dollars, and the minimum payment threshold is $10. Anyone over the age of 16 around the world can use ClixSense.
You can currently cash out your earnings to Dwolla (US residents), Payoneer or via personal check/cheque.
ClixSense Tasks offer the best chance to regularly increase earnings because you will not be filtered out due to your location.
This is the most popular opportunity at ClixSense for those who live in countries that are not usually supported.
In addition, the ClixAddon browser extension is ideal for alerting you when the latest get-paid-to opportunities become available.
What I Like About ClixSense:
- Ideal for those who live in countries that are usually unsupported by get-paid-to websites.
- Low minimum payout threshold ($10).
- Great variation of opportunities both typical and unique.
- Very supportive team on hand to help and advise.
UserTesting is a popular website that will pay you $10 a time for doing just one thing – testing websites or apps.
Founded in 2007, UserTesting was created to help website and app owners get essential feedback on how well their products will be received by the general public, prior to full release.
As a tester at UserTesting, your job is therefore simple. Visit a specific website or app and give feedback on your experience.
To do this you are required to have a webcam that can record you and your voice as you browse the website or app, giving feedback on the good and bad that you find. Your videos are required to be 20 minutes long.
You need to be at least 18 years old to qualify as a tester, and you must be able to speak clearly in English.
At the time of writing this, UserTesting pays its testers via Paypal so as long as your country accepts Paypal payments, you are good to go.
UserTesting does not offer the full range of get-paid-to tasks mentioned elsewhere in this guide, but if you prefer a more focused approach and don’t mind recording your personal opinions, this might well be something that you would enjoy.
What I like about UserTesting:
- Quick and easy process to test if you’re eligible.
- Straight forward get-paid-to-opportunity.
- $10 for 20 minutes work is a good rate of pay.
- Some shorter test are available and pay around $3.
Tips To Maximize Your ‘Get-Paid-To’ Earnings
Get-paid-to websites put a bit of fun into earning some extra cash online. Here are a few additional tips to help you get the most out of your experience.
Mix Up Your Earning Options
Unlike the best online survey opportunities which are great but one-dimensional, get-paid-to websites offer more diverse and entertaining ways to earn some extra cash online.
Take time to try all the various earning opportunities on each website to discover which ones you enjoy the most.
It’s a lot easier to earn your extra cash by doing something enjoyable rather than it feeling like a chore.
Don’t Forget To Shop
Most people overlook the benefits of the shopping rewards and voucher codes offered by get-paid-to websites.
Truth is, they very often offer some great savings and discounts on goods that you would ordinarily buy directly from a supplier.
It’s not exactly earning you money…but it’s definitely a way to save some of your hard earned cash!
Tell Your Friends And Family
All get-paid-to websites have referral programs where you earn commission payments when you recommend the program to others and they complete get-paid-to tasks.
This is a fairly easy way to bump up your income, so look out for the referral program section on each get-paid-to website and share with your friends, family and social connections.
It won’t make you rich but it will put some extra cash in your pockets :)
Browser extensions and get-paid-to apps are great for alerting you when a new earning opportunity is made available.
These often pay more as soon as they are live, so it makes total sense to make sure you are at the front of the queue when they are made available.
All of the websites mentioned here offer you a way to be alerted to the latest opportunities, either by browser extension or app.
Install them from the start to make sure that you don’t miss out!
