Richard, from what I understand (I have been a member for 7-8 years and have gotten many many checks from them), they don’t drop you for not buying something, but they do drop you for inactivity after 30 days. However, by simply clicking on a link in one of their paid emails, once a month, you can stay active. That’s what I do whenever I don’t have time to spend on the site so I can make sure my account stays active.
Although I appreciate your concise and helpful tips, I strongly disagree placing survey junkie as n.1 unless your willing to make less than $1/hour. I spent my first hour sugning up, building my profile (a survey in itself), taking the rutorials for free points. Earned 80 points worth .80 cents. Next hour I startesd over 20 surveys and kept getting kicked out due to not being interested or invilved with their priduct, service or opinion. I only earned 2pts or .02 cents in each after being asked the aame questions akready answered in my profile (age, zip, etc..). I was only able to complete one full survey so I got 65pts or. 65 cents. Two hours after. I was 1.21 richer…not worth it.
There are a few different ways to make a quick $100. If you have anything of value that you can stand to get rid of, like a smartphone or a piece of jewelry, you may be able to sell it at a pawn shop for $100 or more. However, keep in mind that you’ll get a lot less than the retail value! You can also try making money online by taking surveys, but it can take time to get your payout. Another good option is to do a few odd jobs throughout the day that pay relatively well, like dog walking, yardwork, or babysitting.
Become a babysitter if you are good with children. There are websites that will connect you with people who need a babysitter. To get hired by people who do not know you, it will help to pass a CPR class, or to have a special talent or expertise for entertaining children. However, you might be able to make money more quickly just by babysitting for people you know, or by having friends refer you to others who need a babysitter.
