1957horses Posted May 13, 2014 Report Share Posted May 13, 2014 Hello, Everyone! My name is Cheryl and I'm in a suburb of Chicago. I'm self-employed (since 2002) and the industry I work in has taken a major downward hit since last October. Seems like I've spent my days doing silly stuff online (games mostly) waiting for the work phone to ring. My hubby has been doing the occasional InboxDollars surveys for about 2 years now, and finally 'cashed out' a whopping $89.00 two weeks ago (LOL). Anyway, that kinda lit a small fire under me to stop wasting my time with online games and use it to possibly earn something of a little value.I only found your site yesterday and I am totally awestruck. THANK YOU ALL for such a phenominal wealth of information and valuable advice/insight into the survey world. I spent several hours yesterday just reading through some of the posts here on the forum, and making a small list of those companies others have found legitimate in offerings and rewards. I want to express a special THANK YOU to 1957horses as I have found many of your messages to be particularly helpful in the 'where to start' category! Absolutely LOVE your avatar (huge animal lover here). Like a few others have stated, in so many of the survey qualifying questions, age seems to be against me. Just turned 60 and kids are all well over the age of 17. I did sign up with TellWut yesterday and it is refreshing not to have to spend 10 minutes answering questions to get to the "Sorry..." screen. Ran out of their surveys apparently just under 1000 points, but hopefully a few more surveys will be there today. I will try to contribute here on the forum as best I can, but the only program I have used regularly over the years is MyPoints (it has been pretty good to me, can't complain). Will always graciously accept guidance/pointers from all the pros here! Thanks again to the creators and contributors of this super informative and valuable site! Have a happy and wonderfully prosperous day, everyone! Well hey Cherylann, thank you for your kind words............... So I see that you are doing mypoints. Did you see that they raised it 400 points to cashout for $50 giftcard?? Last year it took 7500 for a $50 Amazon gift card, now it is 7900............... The upside of mypoints is you can now get a gift card code instantly (or the old way) same amount of points. Last few years we had to wait weeks before a piece of cardboard with the code came in the snail mail................ I am also in my middle 50's (I guess the 1957 kinda gives it away lol) empty nester with dogs cats and birds a mom and husband to care for and I'm doing ok with doing surveys. I've cut back on some panels. I'm sure you'll find your niche. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
