New Surveys
Just got this in the email. Haven't checked it out yet but it LOOKS promising!
Hello DWYTO subscribers!

I spent the better majority of my weekend researching and adding new content to the DWYTO site. Between yesterday, the 13th, and today, the 14th, I have added 10 new research / survey companies you can sign up with. I spent a lot of time hunting these down, so I hope they will benefit you and me as well! ALSO, I have built a new section for DWYTO, called "Paid Opportunities in Your Area" where you can look, state by state, to see if there are any research or focus group facilities in your area! They are definitely a fun and profitable way to make a little money on the side. It is worth it to participate in these studies if you have the opportunity! I will be adding more companies to the list as I find them. If you know of any you'd like to see added to the new list, let me know!

Have a merry holiday season!
~Molly of DWYTO

Unsub anytime--just let me know you'd like to.

I haven't tried this one yet either...

Update on this one: I had my doubts when they initially said I HAD to sign up with a bunch of other survey sites, some of which I knew I didn't like. Of course I didn't comply. Lately they advertised one that was a credit card sign-up giving you a $35 or so dollar rebate. Not my idea of a good "survey" plan.

will check them out

I do this one too. It adds up pretty quickly but it's not cash. And so far a lot of their rewards I either don't want or have to spend more to use. I just redeemed $15 into my borders card but it says you can only do that once per calendar year. At least this year is almost over!

I have so much money there and keep getting so many surveys. I, too, have nothing to buy there. I might just get some Delta airline miles or something.

You can also get blockbuster movies, maybe I'll get those.

The Borders thing, I read the fine print before and they said they'll put only FIVE dollars per month for three months and if you don't use the five in that month, it expires. wth?

I didn't see that fine print..but I'll tell you what happened so far! It was the end of October (?) and I mis-read or just didn't quite understand what the plan was, so I waited until November 1 to cash it out thinking that would give me more time to use it. It expires at the end of the month after you cash it out. So I get the email it wouldn't credit until December 1. They don't move it over until the NEXT month after you ask. It was probably December 2 that I went to the local Waldenbooks to use it. We don't have Borders here. I bought a book that was listed at full price but I had a 20% off coupon. Then she asked did I want to donate a book to Toys for Tots. So between those two I spent almost the $15. Then I find out they have an "outlet" type store two doors down. Had I known I would have gone there first! So I went there to spend the other few bucks. Found a book for $4 and the girl says oh we're not on line and I don't know how to ring up the card so I said okay I'll pay. Then, about three days ago I get an email from Borders saying as of 12/14 I have $15 in my account. I'm still trying to see if I can redeem it again on-line. Have to hit $25 for free shipping and haven't managed to get the right mix in the cart to finish! :)

edit update: what a pain! the girl at the store must not have rung the sale up right because i got all the way to the end on line at it says i have $15 in bordersbucks there. originally i'd gone into the brick and mortar thinking i could find better deals than on-line. ha! at least from what i've looked at the prices were better on-line. AND, you can get "send to store" for free shipping. not sure all this was worth it but i now have $15 more borderbucks to spend! hooray for incompetence! :)

Happy New Year, DWYTO subscribers!

Here's wishing us all a prosperous new year! And how to we prosper? Hopefully, by making a little extra cash by completing surveys and product research studies. Usually, January is a slow time when it comes to receiving survey invitations. So I've been trying to find us some new places to sign up with. If you haven't already heard of the USA Talk Now Panel, then it's time to sign up! They pay you via cash, gc's, or with free products, for doing their surveys and for participating in focus groups. Here is the link to their homepage, the Join Now is on the right side of the page:

Now, here's some disappointing news about's Mystery Shoppers program. I had them posted on the site, and was waiting for them to make registrations available. Well, unfortunately, It turns out it will cost money to register with them! About $10 for 3 months, or about $30 a year. Usually, I would blacklist a company like this, but it is really too early to do so. Those of you who live in huge metropolitan areas might actually benefit from this program! That is, IF you are willing to pay their fee. It's small, but it's still a fee, right? And the whole point of DWYTO is to help YOU make money; so let's give it a few months and wait for some user's feedback.... unfortunately, I do not live in a big city, or near one, so I'm not going to be able to participate in their program. If anyone has any reviews on PremierShoppers, please do share them!
