Making Money & Earning Rewards Online

I wrote this post back in April, but have since updated my list so I'm sharing my first list plus made additions to it.  The link to the first post is at the end of this one.

All these sites are free to sign up for.

Save up
This isn't so much a money making site but I've won twice from this website.  I have won a ipad3 last year and a $100 gift card to Lowe's.  I've been using this website for over a year and as a result I am ranked pretty high.  I am ranked between 50th and 60 th out of all users.  I don't know how many there are but I do know it is in the thousands.  I love how easy it is to use and even if you don't win anything it has great features.

Swag bucks
This is probably my favorite.  I don't spend a lot of time on it, although I've been spending more lately.  I do the daily poll and the NOSO, and then occasionally some of the quick videos that you can watch to earn swagbucks.  I also use it as a search engine to try to get some points that way.  The points can then be redeemed for gift cards, discounts or other prizes.  I spend 5-10 minutes a day and could earn a $5 amazon gift card probably every other month. I've been saving them for paypal cash though since I've have earned a good amazon balance.

Inbox dollars
I've been using this since the spring.  I've made around $17, but you need to have $30 in you account to cash out. You can take surveys and use it as a search engine, but I haven't done that yet.  I get emails (I think at least 10 times a week) and just by opening it and clicking on the confirm button you make .2 cents.  It's a small amount, but takes less than ten seconds to do.

I've been using ebates for three years and in that time I've gotten over $200 back.  Before shopping online I always check to see if the store or shop is listed on ebates.  One of my favorite to use in groupon.  When I ordered our wedding invitations through vista print I went through ebates and got cash back.  I ordered some magazines on black Friday and got 50% of my purchase back.  Awesome!
Sign up here (I think I get $5 when you make your first purchase) 

This one isn't technically online..  Nexercise is an app (I think it's available on apple and android) and you track exercise and earn points that can be redeemed for other gift cards etc... I have no idea how long it will take to earn something though.  Since all activity is through the app if you want to be my friend let me know and I can email you my friend link (I think we both earn more points through this). You can still benefit from it even if you don't have friends on there.
It does take a while to earn enough points for something, but I still will keep using it because I like tracking my exercise (although since being pregnant I've not been doing much)

Pampers rewards
I've been using this for a while, and have yet to spend any money on it.  I follow some other blogs and they post when there is a free point code.  This usually happens on a monthly basis.

Kellogg's family rewards
Just by signing up and entering codes from eligible products I've earned a free children's book, and have enough points for free prints from shutterfly.  I'm saving them for something bigger, although I'm not sure what yet. I've only been using this since the end of the spring (thanks to that cereal and waffles with cream cheese and jelly craving, I've earned a lot of points :) ). They also offer free points codes at least once or twice a month. Click the link below to sign up.

Poll Buzzer 
This one is very sporadic, but awesome.  You get an email with a multiple choice question and if you respond in a certain time frame (usually 2-3 hours) you get $1 in your pay pal account.  That's it.  Super super easy.  I missed one question, but I've already added $2 to my paypal account for less than 5 minutes of work.

I signed up when it first was launched and I didn't have a smartphone so I forgot about it. But I've been trying to remember to use it again.

This connects you with brands and when you answer questions or participate in missions you earn points which equal entries for gift card drawings.  I'm not sure how it chooses brands, since I just started using it in June.  I did win a $50 gift card to though and then $5 to amazon (twice!).
