Online Earning Opportunities: Rewards Sites

9 posts in this topic

How do you feel about working online for gift cards or other prizes offered on rewards sites? I know some people just want cold, hard, cash. I don't really mind working for rewards though, depending on what the rewards might be. You can always trade gift cards or sell them off to someone else as well.

I have fewer online earning opportunities (two more sites that I was using recently closed down), so I'll find a way to make these work as long as they're legit. What are your thoughts? Do you mind working for rewards instead of Paypal cash?

Honestly saying I only believe in cash. So I don't prefer those sites who is offering gift cards and all that. But if someone is offering good deal then I won't mind in trying them out. But that happens only rarely. Otherwise I only choose site who offers cash only.

The only gift cards that I can use from my country is Amazon Gift Card. sadly, Amazon does not deliver all kinds of products to my location. Thus Gift Cards are of not much use to me. I like to get paid cash via paypal. I can use paypal to buy on ebay. Interestingly there are many sellers on ebay who deliver to international location.

That makes sense. I wouldn't want them either if there weren't very useful for me.

In my case, I can spend them in place of cash and keep the cash in my pocket, so it works out the same as money for me. If it's a store or something that I shop at anyway, it works well for me. I also like Amazon cards, but I don't have to deal with those delivery issues.

I'd actually prefer to do more of my shopping online, as long as I can get free or cheap shipping. So, I guess I'll keep earning those cards. I hope you can find more things that work for you too.

I am not a fan of sites that rewards Gift Cards for the tasks we do. I prefer cash via paypal instead of gift cards. Most of the online store do not deliver yo my home country, those that deliver have high charges for delivery. Thus I always avoid reward sites. Having said that I some times accept Amazon Gift Cards which I use to buy ebooks.

I prefer cold,hard cash like many people who work online so I've been avoiding reward sites. The delivery charges to my country are rather costly and that will easily jack up the prices of items I may buy online. Besides that, I'd like to make the most of my paypal account for which I am paying an annual fee (not for paypal but for the associated account).  My day is already full with cash paying sites and I don't want to and can't stretch it further to accommodate reward sites.

Ideally I think that we would all prefer to work online for cash and get it wired straight into our Paypal accounts or whatever payment processor we use. On some sites though, that isn't always an option but the rewards that are offered are still too good to turn down so on those kind of sites I don't mind an Amazon voucher or something along those lines for example.

A lot depends on what your actually trying to earn online for, and if you are trying to save up for something in particular then maybe a voucher is no good for you so you will avoid using those sites, but if your just earning online as a supplementary income then you wont mind the odd voucher being offered as long as you are able to make some use out of it.

I am not interested in vouchers as means of reward or payment working online. I don't work online for fun and I wouldn't take it as just a supplementary income. I would opt for direct bank transfer or PayPal as means to receive pay.

That's true that direct cash is more convenient option for me and I guess for all. But if I found good opportunity at some site which offers those gift cards, then i don't mind going for it either. I mean there are options of direct or indirect exchange for those gift cards. Yes I will go with cash only on first, but if opportunity is good then I will go for it too.

      Instead of carrying around a lot of cash when traveling, using gift cards can be a good alternative. I earn some gift cards online from various sites, and they come in handy for gift shopping, gift giving and all that, but they even work well for travel. You can use them to pay for fast food or gas along the way and even for hotels and restaurants. It's a convenient way to pay for things, if you don't want to use your credit card, debit card, or cash all the time.
      Depending on the area you happen to be in, it may not even be safe to pull out cash. At the same time, you might not want to use your bank card just to grab a drink or quick snack, but you can use a gift card instead.
