Need some extra cash?
I don't normally blog about companies or brands, but lately I have been spending some time on a website called Expo TV. One of my friends blogged about it, and I decided to check it out (Thanks, Ashleigh!). Basically, you submit reviews of various products around your home that you already have. Each review earns you points. Those points can then be redeemed for a variety of things. For example, for 3000 points, you can earn a $25 Visa or Amazon gift card. And really, it takes hardly any time to rack up points. After doing 3 reviews, I had already earned over 3000 points. Also, doing a review takes hardly any time at all. I use the camera on my computer to record a minute long review of something, and then I upload it to the site. So easy. After you create an account (which is totally free), they send you emails, inviting you to review various things. Each review earns an average of 300-800 points. They also have a section of "Most Wanted Items" where you can earn 800-2500 points per review. The products in every section change frequently, so if I don't see anything to review, I know there will probably be something there soon if I check back. I usually don't like programs like this because it takes so long to rack up enough points to get anything, but this is different. It takes much less time, and the rewards are worth it (to me!). I figured if I earn 1000 points each day for thirty days (not necessarily every day in a row) over the next few months, I will have earned 30,000 points. That equals out to be $250 in Visa gift cards which I can use online to buy anything I want. I plan to use the extra money to buy Christmas gifts. I just wanted to share this idea with others in case you might also be looking for an easy way to make a little extra cash. If you want to know more, feel free to ask!
