Requested Payouts Today

I finally got around to requesting a payout from web perspectives and Swagbucks. Sometime this month or next month I should be getting $20.00 dollars in my paypal for doing surveys with web perspectives and a $5.00 Amazon gift card from Swagbucks.

So once that goes through I would have made $40 in total with this survey company. Sometimes I delete survey invitations by mistake so I probably could have more. I also am waiting for some surveys to get approved which will give me another $10 dollars just like that. The surveys range from 50 points to 300 points, more points the longer the survey. 50 points is the same as 50 cents and 300 points is the same as $3.00 dollars. So if you do many or all these can add up. It is just a matter of waiting for the companies to approve your surveys which can take a long time sometimes.

Swagbucks is not as rewarding, it takes longer. After a month of messing around on the site though I at last had enough for my $5.00 Amazon gift card.

Why Is Finding Work At Home Jobs So Hard?

To give a detailed answer that makes sense I want to first explain that the problem could be how you are searching for work at home jobs. If you go to google and type in "Work At Home" you will get: 5,300,000,000 results at current. Out of all those results you can bet that some websites are garbage just trying to sell you something and others lieing and trying to offer you something other than a job...

Of course there are ways to get around the garbage and find jobs a bit easier. Here is a list of websites I enjoy viewing jobs on:

That is just some of many, many websites. A lot of forums also may list work at home jobs, so be sure to check those out too.

It takes finding the right…

Transcription With Scribie

For a couple years I had growing interest in transcription and figured it was time to try it out. I found a company that hires new people. I never did transcription in my life but  I passed the transcription test so I am in.

For transcribing 6 minutes of audio you get $1.00. Honestly I think this is a terrible price, but I don't know what is and isn't a good price for transcription. The 3 files I've done so far seemed to be interview related or presentation related. Since I am new it took me an hour unfortunately to transcribe 6 minutes of audio.

So yeah, 3 hours of work = $3.00... I imagine for people who have done it for years though, it probably is much easier and they can make cash a bit quicker. I am hoping to make extra cash with the website, and find work with a better paying website. Assuming that is possible.

I will write a post later letting everyone know how I am doing and letting people know if I get paid. Its through paypal so I believe I will.
