Springboad America

Here's another company that is new to me, Springboard America. It's another where you earn points, and you can redeem for cash. Downside? You can't cash out 'til you reach fifty bucks, but that's the way Globaltestmarket has always been, and I've still been able to make a lot of $$ there. Apparently the surveys here tend to be of a political nature, which is a plus in my book, as I love giving my opinions LOUDLY on politics! lol Anyway, I signed up, and am going to give it a try... I'll give updates if there's anything exciting! lol If you wanna go ahead and join now, just follow this link.

Great blog for telecommuting

Wanted to share a blog that I found recently, that lists constantly updated positions, where you can work from home. Great for anyone looking for a part-time, or perhaps even full-time position. The companies she lists are legitimate, and it won't cost you anything to apply.

The one way that these may differ from surveys, is they will probably have you fill out W2's for the IRS. I believe it is still $600 per year, per company, that you can earn, without having to report.

Good luck everyone, and Happy Earning!

Online Trolling/Harrassment

Wow! I don't know whether to be offended, or flattered! lol I have an online troller, who must be threatened by my little 'ol blog!!! I posted an email invitation that I received from 20/20 Research (I get these often), and this guy accused me of copying it off his site... Well, he, also, sent me an anonymous, threatening email about a week ago (guess he didn't think I'd knwo about IP addys). I'm saving all of the correspondance, just in case I need to follow up. Anyway, this brings me to HR1966, the cyberbullying bill, that is close to being passed. What do you all think about HR 1966? It's got it's good points, along with the bad. You can read a good article about it here. As someone who has been online for 15+ years, I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly. I started a very successful online forum, as well as some great email groups. I've seen how people behave when online, I guess because they are able to "hide" behind their computer screens. I have always been amazed at how, when several adults get online, many of them start behaving like kids on a playground, getting in petty spats. That's why I quit messing with the forums.
Have any of you experienced things like this? He's actually posting libelous remarks about me, and I don't know whether to laugh it off, or pursue harrassment charges. What would you recommend?

The best woman to marry

A man wanted to get married. He was having trouble choosing among three likely candidates. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money.

The first does a total make over. She goes to a fancy beauty salon gets her hair done, new make up and buys several new outfits and dresses up very nicely for the man. She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much.

The man was impressed.

The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts. She gets him a new set of golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on him because she loves him so much.

Again, the man is impressed.

The third invests the money in the stock market. She earns several times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5000 and reinvests the remainder in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future because she loves him so much.

Obviously, the man was impressed.

The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money he'd given her.

Then, he married the one with the biggest boobs.

AMD Insight Panel

This is another site I had not heard of! Doing surveys for ten years now, don't know how I missed a few of these! lol Every now and then, like now, though, I start searching for new sites, just to make sure I'm not missing out on anything too exciting!

This one is for AMD... this one is exciting to me, not because of the rewards, but because I'm a technology nut! I love impressing people, with my ability to put together computers in no time, etc.! lol So many people still go with those old sterotypes, and this isn't something a lot of them consider, "girlie"! lol

Anyway, they do surveys, etc. to get your opinions on technology, etc. They do offer points, which can be redeemed for Amazon gift certificates... an added bonus!

I signed up, so we'll see what happens! Here's the Link!

AlphaMom's Lab

This was a new one to me, but maybe I didn't join in the past because their basic surveys just offer an entry into a drawing... and the odds aren't great... 1 in 1000, BUT, they do offer online, as well as in person focus groups, where they pay well. So, I just signed up tonight, and don't have any personal experience, but it's always nice to get a good focus group! Here's the link, in case anyone's interested!

Opinions on Opinion Outpost?

I've been a member of Opinion Outpost for a long time. While they have always been great about sending checks quickly and accurately, and there are other positives, I have recently been debating my membership. This is a tough one.

With Opinion Outpost, I always know I can make some money. I can, often, cash out at least $5 every few days. A few days ago, I cashed out $5 one day, $10 the next, and $5 the next. I hate to leave something that reliable... the other positive is... even though it's rare, I know (unlike with Greenfield and a few others) that real people do win their contests. I, once, won the $50 instant win... made up for quite a few of those where I answered too many questions, only to find out that I didn't qualify, and therefore would be paid nothing.

The problems I'm having with Opinion Outpost... first, like I just mentioned, all those surveys I screen out of. At least on most of their surveys, you screen out pretty quickly, so not a lot of time is wasted, which is more than can be said for a lot of companies. The real problem, however, comes with the fact that I'm starting to question their, hmm, how should I put it? Integrity? Ok, first, this only happened once, but it really, really made me angry... I completed a LONG survey. It was one that wasn't immediately credited, no big deal. But then, I get an email from them a few days later... saying I took TOO LONG to finish the survey, so I wouldn't get any credit at all, after spending all that time! Oh, talk about boiling! I wrote them back, and explained that I understand the whole "timing surveys" thing, to ensure that panelists are, in fact, reading the questions and answering honestly and responsibly... but to say I took too long?! This wasn't something where I left the computer and forgot the survey... I was actually completing it! I told them, if anything, that should show them that I was taking the time to read the questions carefully, so that their client would receive the most accurate information possible. No luck.

The other problem, that's making me wonder about them, and this one happens more often than it should... I complete a survey, yes, do the entire thing, and get the screen thanking me for completing the survey... then, it doesn't redirect me to Opinion Outpost to be credited. THEN... Opinion Outpost gives me some crappy message, saying I didn't qualify or the study was full, or they had too many answers from my demographics... you know all the excuses they can come up with. This happened again yesterday, and I am NOT happy about it.

Overall, I think Opinion Outpost is a decent company... but where do I draw the line? I AM giving them my valuable time, and my opinions, which yes... those are worth money, or we wouldn't have so many companies offering to pay to get them. Companies make money from our opinions, as they get our ideas on how to better market their products to people like: US!

Anyway, even with my complaints, I still don't think I can unsubscribe just yet, because I do earn regular payments from them... but if these problems keep happening, it won't be for much longer. I'm already doing pretty long surveys for them for a measly buck or two a pop!

What do you all think? What are your opinions???

The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee’s home phone # and was greeted with a child’s whisper


Is your daddy home? he asked.

“Yes.” whispered the small voice.

May I talk with him?

The child whispered, “no.”

Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, “Is your mommy there?”

May I talk with her?

Again the small voice whispered, “No.”

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the asked, “Is anybody else there?”

“Yes” whispered the child, “A policeman !!”

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, “May I speak with the policeman?”

“No, he’s busy.” whispered the child.

“Busy doing what?”

“Talking to daddy and mommy and the fireman,” came the whispered answer.

Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What is that noise?”

“A helicopter.” answered the whispering voice.

“What is going on there?” demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.

Again, whispering, the child answered, “The search team just landed.”

Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?”

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle……..

“ME !”

Video Chat Network/People Who Work Out Regularly-$$$$ + Flip Cam

Video Chat Network/People Who Work Out Regularly-$$$$ + Flip Cam Received email on this today. Must pre-qualify:

We are getting ready to conduct a very interesting project that is somewhat different from our standard video chats.

What we are looking to do is to conduct several "self portraits" among Video Chat Network panelists, aged 21-45, who regularly work out. To see samples of VCN, Self Portraits, where panelists turn the camera on themselves, please check out: Link .

More specifically, we are looking for panelists who fall into one of the following categories below. Qualified panelists will receive a brand new flip cam, a supply of nutritional bars/supplements and cash valued at $250 in total.

In return we ask qualified participants to complete an assignment we will email to you where you (or someone else) will video record you on your new flip cam at various points during the day, before, during and after work outs. We will also ask for you to record yourself shopping for some nutritional sports products we want you to shop for and try. In total we will ask you to record around 45 minutes of footage across a 4-5 day period and simply send it back to us via the flip cam software you will install on your computer.

The timing will be for us to get you set up to start by 5/11 so that you can send footage back to us by 5/15.

Please let us know which of the following categories you fall into.

Category 1--Elite athletes--work out 5+ times a week either at a gym, running or for a team sport. Fitness and nutrition is considered to be critical to how you lead your lives. You work out primarily for strength and athletic performance. You may currently be using sports nutritional products like bars, drinks and supplements as a regular part of your fitness regime (brands such as Muscle Milk, EAS, Clif and PowerBar).

Category 2--Active lifestyle athletes--work out around 3 times a week as part of a balanced approach to a healthy lifestyle. You understand the link between diet, nutrition and fitness but may not always be super disciplined in your regime. You may have tried sports nutritional products on occasion but do not use them regularly (brands such as Muscle Milk, EAS, Clif and PowerBar).

If you fall into category 2, please also specify if your prime work out activity is going to the gym, running or a team sport.

If you are interested in participating in this project please email back to Zoe Cantor at

Or I have added a link to their site where you can join if you are not already a member. Good luck!

Another company! lol

Here's a company I found on a site run by a well respected gal in the survey world. Went to it, and apparently I'm already a member, but haven't done anything with it. She did list it as one that pays her, though, and she's fantastic about listing all kinds of sites, but then keeping a separate list of sites that have actually paid. If ya wanna try it out, here's the link !

Happy Earning!
