For the past few weeks, I've been putting together a big post on some of the best survey sites around. It's been a bit time consuming going through each of them, but there's one site that I thought I'd share with you today since it's hands down the easiest way to earn a little extra cash. It's called YouData and frankly, unless you hate free money, there's no reason why you shouldn't be a member.
Basically you log on each week and view any ads that you qualify for. They generally pay out at around $0.15 to $0.25 each and once you've viewed all of your available ads, that's it. It takes ~60 seconds to view all of my ads each week and in exchange, I generally get about $1. Now, we're not talking about making millions obviously, but do the math.
$1 per week for 60 seconds of your time. That's $52 a year for 52 minutes, or an average of $60/hr. If you're making $60/hr in your current job, chances are this wouldn't interest you, but seeing as how I certainly don't make that much and I doubt many others do, this is a sweet little source of side case. Of course, this is predicated on the basis that you'll qualify for $1 worth of ads each week, but I've been safely earning around that rate for the past two months so far.
The best part is that payments are automatic. Most of the other sites that I'm reviewing have a minimum cashout threshold and once you reach it, it's up to you to request the payment. Not YouData. Every Friday, they automatically send whatever you earned the previous week via Paypal. No minimums, no extra steps on your part to ask for the money, no hassles.
My much longer post on earning some extra cash isn't going to be ready for another week or two as I'm trying to be as thorough as possible, but I thought I'd share this site with ya now since I'm still searching for the freebies today.
EDIT: As mentioned in the comments, YouData requires a user to have a cell phone in order to sign up. My bad for not mentioning that earlier. Seeing as how I signed up a few months ago, I simply forgot.
