Recently, in my ongoing search for ways to make money as a 15-year-old girl, I happened upon a website called Points2Shop. It’s a survey/offers site where you do things like watch videos, download apps, and fill out surveys in exchange for points. Watching videos usually only nets you about 1 point. A survey can give you 40-60 points, and app offers tend to be in the 10-20 zone. 1 point is equivalent to about 1 cent, and 1000 points can be redeemed for a 10 dollar Amazon gift card, and there are thousands of other available rewards. I have been working on the site for… four or five days, now? Maybe a week? and I have 350 points.
It’s not a scam, at least according to several people on the internet, and if you click on someone’s profile in the included Points2Shop “Shoutbox”, or chat, you can see the things they’ve earned. One person’s profile indicated that they’d saved up for and received a Nintendo 3Ds, two Pokemon games, and a few other things over the course of a year. That’s a pretty hefty amount of cash for simply filling out surveys.
If you’re interested in joining the site, here are a few things you need to know:
1. Sign up under this link, which is a referral code which will net me 50 points. Shameless, I know, but if you’re going to do it anyway…
2. It is approximately 50 times easier to earn points through the mobile app. Simply download an app, play, oh, the first level or so, and BAM! 15 points. That’s two minutes, tops, whereas a 20 minute survey will earn you around 50 points. You can make three times the money in the same amount of time using the mobile app.
3. Incidentally, when downloading apps, the NativeX section pays much better than the other sections for the same offers.
4. You will be disqualified from many, many surveys. That’s okay. It happens to everybody. Although apparently Hispanic parents of under-eights are a hot commodity. It’s a demographics thing.
5. A few offers can take up to a week to credit. That’s okay. However, if it takes more than a week, you’re probably out of luck. Sorry about that ten minutes you wasted, and consider contacting Points2Shop if the offer is high value.
6. It says you can play games to earn money, but nooooooo. You bet 5 points, and then play against 1 or more other players, winner takes all. Unless you are a very, very good gamer, I would not recommend it.
That’s about it, I guess. See you there!
