Money in My Mailbox – Look What I Got!
Money in Mailbox

by - August 31, 2011 - 6 Comments

Last week I received three little presents in my mailbox and they were my favorite type of present – free cash.

On Monday I got $1 from Points2Shop.com

I found this one by just surfing the internet a few weeks ago. Points2Shop.com is one of those sites that pays you to complete offers and surveys. I know there are a million of these sites, but the cool part is that this compnay will send you a free dollar just for signing up.

Most sites like this have a minimum cash-out amount, but Points 2 Shop will let you cashout your free dollar right away as way of proving to their members that they are legitimate.

I know it’s only a dollar, but it was free and seeing it in my mailbox made me smile. :)

The next day I got $5 from Consumer Opinion Institute

I’ve been a member of this survey panel for a while and it’s one of the only survey companies that I’m a member of. Generally, I find that taking surveys is a waste of time, but Consumer Opinion Institute just sends me cash in the mail with a survey they want me to complete.

I always thought it was so trusting of them to send me cash before I even completed the survey, but I’m not going to complain.

On Friday I got a $100 check from Prosper.com

This one was definitely the most exciting of the three and the one I had been waiting on the longest. About two months ago I referred a family member to Prosper, which is one of my favorite ways to invest, and Prosper sent me a $100 thank you. Yea!! :)

Getting money in the mail sure is a nice departure from the normal barrage of bills and junk mail….

Good Luck Penny Hoarders!

Please note: Both Prosper and Points2Shop help to sponsor The Penny Hoarder. Consumer Opinion Institute has no relationship with TPH, however we genuinely recommend all three.

    Congrats to you. I think we might need to start calling you money bags instead of penny hoarder. Glad your ventures are working out for you.

    Hey can’t complain about free money! Nice score. Seriously you are more like a Dollar Hoarder now!

    Lol. Well, I guess it’s not really free money, because someone has to pay for the postage! :)

    It is always nice when free money shows up. I use to do online surveys to get a few extra bucks but found it a bit time consuming. Since my layoff, I have time, and I might get back into it. Every little bit helps.

    Free money – what a deal! I’ve been checking out the on line survey’s. I can’t believe they sent you $5 before completing the survey!
