Product Name: Send Earnings
Minimum Payout: $20
Rating: Waste of Time!
What Is It?
Make money by filling out surveys and signing up for trial offers from various companies.
Though advertisements show people with fists full of cash, no one makes a ton of money doing surveys. Some people actually lose money by signing up for trial offers. If you manage to turn a profit from companies like Send Earnings, it will be tiny.
In my opinion, if you want to make money online, you are better off investing your time and energy to learning techniques that real internet marketers use to make a decent income.
Before You Buy
I found out about Send Earnings though the grapevine. I started out doing a review on Cash Crate and InboxDollars, both of which were utter failures. However, it wasn't long before I found a post about how the ‘real money' was being made at Send Earnings.
I was skeptical to say the least.
What I found is that this place is almost an exact copy of InboxDollars. Just check out those menus!
The offers inside are different, but what's behind them is the same. You can make money by (here we go again!)
- completing surveys
- signing up for free trials of products
- paying for subscription trials
- referring friends
- shopping online with digital coupons
- listening to internet radio
- watch advertising videos
Well, the same methods will get you the same results. In the end, you'll be scraping together pennies for about $50 per month (if you're lucky). Yes, this is money, so I can't knock them for actually paying people.
However, I think my time is worth more than a few dollars an hour. Send Earnings will not pay your rent or utility bills, and should not be counted on to feed your kids.
What I Liked
I think we're past this by now. There's not much to like here.
What I Didn't Like
There's no reason you should be buying stuff on a site that's supposed to make you money. The fact that they have a tab on here for shopping with coupons in insulting. We've seen other make money by spending money (link to WUN) before.
Search & Video
The fact is no one really wants to use these two services. Google is king of search, and anyone that plays with the search engine within SE is doing so just to make money. Sure, why not? But can you honestly tell me that you'd enjoy your day or evening by spending it searching for nonsense that you weren't really looking for in the first place?
And I actually did one of the video assignments over at Fusion Cash. It was an ad for one of those flash game ads that want you to sign up for free, then try to get you to buy special equipment and levels. Remember, these ads exist for a reason – they want to get you to buy stuff!
Need Legit Info
As with many of these types of “make money” sites, if you sign up for offers, you need to give legit information. They actually do call you, and send you confirmation emails. If the information doesn't work with their call center or email sender, then you don't get credit.
But when you use your real info, you end up getting spammed and cold-called til you're blue in the face. I said it before, and I'll say it again. These systems are put in place so people can try to sell you stuff. If you play legitimately, you are going to have to put up with A LOT of ads in various forms.
Not Your Potential
You are reading this review, and that's a sign that you are truly interested in making money in a legit manner. At the very least, you are interested in the money!
But what you get with places like Send Earnings is just another minimum wage job, at best. For each penny earned, you have to do something. For every hour spent, you maybe only used your brain for 10 minutes.
These are simple tasks, and will melt your brain after a while. And for what? A few bucks an hour? There are better ways to make money on the internet, and tons of ways to make MORE money.
You are missing out on education and opportunity by spending your time in sites like this.
Send Earnings really pays, so it's not a scam. But you are cheating yourself if you invest your time an energy into learning how to work their system and actually turn a profit.
If you just want some simple tasks to do and are not worried about how much money you get for what you do, this could be for you. Many people enjoy it. But if you actually want to make money online, Send Earnings is a waste of time.
