A lot of people that have came across Cashcrate want to know if it is a scam. Well, I will write a full review of it here so people can really find out the answer to the question “Is Cashcrate a Scam?” Before I get into my Cashcrate review, let me give a little background on what it is and how people can earn money with it.
(sneak peak…I like these guys! Click here to see their website)
Cashcrate is a very popular GPT site that allows users to sign up completely free and fill out offers and surveys for free cash. You can also earn money by other methods such shopping, referring members, and more. They accept members from all over the world although people from English speaking countries have a better earning potential. You have to be 13 years or older to become a member. The minimum payout is $20 and they pay by check.
Ok, so now that I have given you a brief overview of what Cashcrate is, let’s get to my review. I started out with Cashcrate as a way to make some quick cash and to see if it was legitimate. That was back in 2008 when I first signed up. I made $149 my first month completely free. Since then I have received a total of 7 checks and one is processing currently. Here is a little screenshot of my earnings so far.
I only really fully committed to Cashcrate for the first month so every check after that was made entirely on referrals. I haven’t completed an offer on that site since December of 2008. The only reason I didn’t fully commit to Cashcrate is because I ventured into affiliate marketing which is something I chose to get into because it was interesting and I’m the type that would rather design websites and promote them rather than filling out offers. That’s just me.
Back to the review. You can really make some decent money with Cashcrate. You can make anywhere from 50-100 dollars a month just by doing the offers and surveys. Their offers credit quite nicely and the payout is good too.
The free offers pay anywhere from .10 cent to 10.00 dollars each. You can make even more by doing the free trial offers that pay even higher. These offers usually require a credit card though. It is not necessary to do any trial offers because you can make quite enough money by doing the free offers alone. You earn points on every dollar you make which you can redeem for gifts like gift cards, PSP, X-Box 360, and other cool prizes.
They also pay you for shopping online. For example, if you make a purchase at Wal-Mart, Cashcrate will give you 5% of your money back. You also have some daily surveys that you can do that are worth .80 each if you complete them. If you qualify for a couple of daily surveys each day, you can really add to your monthly earnings. Their monthly contests are great too which allow you a chance to earn some extra free money.
The key to making 200+ a month on this site is referrals. They have a high referral program. You get 20% of your first level referrals earnings and 10% of what their referrals make. You also get a 3.00 bonus for each person that reaches the minimum payout. If you can find people to be active in this program you can really make some good money.
In conclusion, Cashcrate is no way a scam for any of the curious people wondering if they actually pay. It is a legitimate way for people to make some quick cash online for free. The layout of the site is simple and easy to navigate around. They have lots of ways to earn free money and their reputation for paying people is great.
If you look around the forum, you will see that members are happy receiving their checks and posting their payment proofs. There is actually a payment wall that you can take a look at to see checks that people have received. If you want to check out the site yourself and start earning some free cash, click here.
