Paid $60 for an hour drinking some beers...

I did a short survey with Lightspeed Consumer Panel on Thursday that paid me $2 for about 5 minutes of survey answers. At the end of the survey I was asked whether I would like to participate in a Beer tasting focus group, naturally I said ok.

A lady from Research International rang me on Friday and arranged for me to attend a focus group on Saturday. Can't say too much about the actual focus group, but it involved drinking a new beer range from a popular brewing company and answering some questions. All up it took about 1 hour and I was paid $60.

The money was great because it meant that I could buy my oldest boy a second controller for his new playstation. Unfortunately it also meant he could play against me in his AFL game and he seriously kicked my butt, but no matter, I grounded him till he's 15 :)

Joined a new survey panel, My Opinions. I will review it shortly, but it looks good. I have already had a few surveys worth a few dollars each. Points can be converted into cash and transferred via paypal ($50 min) or you can convert your points into RewardsCentral points (1 for 1)

Focus Group with LightSpeed Research

I have been invited this week to a focus group through Lightspeed Research. Giving my opinion on various types of imported beers should be very hard work....

Lightspeed have also made some changes in their online surveys. You can now earn reward points as well as competition entries. Reward points can be used to order gift vouchers, buy products or transfer cash through paypal. I have completed some surveys through them this week and ordered some cash through paypal.

Make sure you are signed up to LightSpeed Consumer Panel.

Jumbo Rewards

Another Rewards Program, most of the opportunities to earn points come from buying or doing something with reward partner sites. Reasonable option, but would prefer RewardsCentral (EmailCash) at this stage. Check out Jumbo Rewards.

Fat Cat Rewards

Joined another 'rewards program' called Fat Cat Rewards. Lots of offers to take up that pay you a reward. $10 bonus on sign up, min pay out is $50 via paypal. Lots of the offers are dodgy competitions. Be careful if you sign up to this one..... Fat Cat Rewards.

SnapDollars - trying out a new rewards program

Here's a new program that I joined during the week: Snap Dollars

It looks bright and colourful....

Several options for generating money - free trial offers, reward emails, etc. Seems a little bent on promoting gambling sites and dodgy mobile phone competitions, but I will give it a try and see how it turns out.

At this stage, I would prefer something like SpiderMetrix where you can do surveys and review web sites to earn money.
