Grab Some Popcorn: These Companies Will Pay You to Watch Movie Previews
I know it sounds far-fetched, but it's possible to earn extra money watching movie previews.
In fact, if you're really committed, you could earn $300/month or more with the tips listed below. Let me explain...
1. Earn Up to $225/Month Watching Previews
Most of you already know about InboxDollars, but did you know that they will pay you to watch movie previews, celebrity videos, the latest news, along with dozens of other videos? Plus, they will give you a free $5 just for signing up.
You need to watch all of the shows in a specific playlist to earn your bucks, so be prepared. Swagbucks lets you know how long the playlist runs before you start watching, and playlists range from a few minutes to about a half hour.
The availability is subject to change, but it's possible to earn up to $225/month watching these videos!
If you like this kind of work, you might also check out Swagbucks which offers similar payouts (available on Androids and desktop computers).
2. Earn Up to $30/Day With "In-Theater Checks"
I actually got paid $30 to attend one of the Harry Potter movie premieres. And it’s the fifth movie premiere I’ve been paid to attend. Let me explain.
Theaters and movie studios are interested in collecting data about the audience that attends their movie premieres. They want to know how many people buy tickets on opening day, what screening time is most popular and what previews are being shown. And they want independent data from third-party evaluators.
How to Apply for the Job
They are known as “in-theater checks” and to apply, you’ll need to fill out an application with one of the largest mystery shopping companies, Certified Field Associates. The application is just a few questions long and nearly everyone in the United States and Canada is eligible to be hired.
(Note: I get a lot of questions about how to know if a mystery shopping company is real. Here’s a hint: you should never have to pay a fee to join! That’s a big red flag!)
Once you’ve been accepted as a new auditor with Certified Field Associates, you will want to keep a close eye on their online assignment list. As new assignments become available, they will be posted to that list. If you find a movie that you would like to attend, you have the ability to self-assign the project to yourself.
“In-theater checks” don’t have huge paydays attached to them, but you can usually expect to make between $10-20 per hour.
Good luck Penny Hoarders!
