I debated about posting this, as I am re-reading my title and it sounds like the start of a spam email. However,I decided to go ahead and do it, since it truely does work.
When browsing Facebook, I always see ads for "free money by doing xyz" and normally ignore them. For some reason, I decided to click on the two sites I am listing below. Both are more or less identical, i.e. post a review on software, receive a gift card (Starbucks , Amazon etc..).
For both, each review took about 5 minutes, the hardest part was finding software to review. Both took about 3 days to look over the reviews and send out the gift cards. All of my submissions were accepted and paid out as promised.
Again, this is NOT a shill posting, I am in no way affiliated with either company, other than they seem to enjoy giving me gift cards for a tiny amount of work. I just wanted to pass them along in case anyone else saw ads for them and wondered if they were legit companies .
FAQ - https://www.capterra.com/reviews/faqs-reviewers
For my first review , I earned a $10 Amz GC, and $5 for each additional (I have done 5 more and ran out of things to review). I think you can go up to $50 total
G2 - https://www.g2.com/wizard/new-review/
This one is a tiny bit more complex, as you have to take an actual screenshot of the software, but the rest is fairly painless. If I remember, I think I got a $10 Amz GC for each review, up to 5.
EDIT: I added some pictures of the gift card emails I received. Again, not shilling, spamming etc.. just trying to pass along a rather easy way to make a little extra money!
EDIT #2 , i am not sure why this posting is not gaining traction. It was literally about 10-20 minutes of my time to get close to $100 in Amazon Gift cards. To the people who say their firewalls block these sites, here are some additional details.
Capterra - Bought by Gartner in 2015. Also plenty of news coverage by reputable sources.
G2 - Tech Crunch review - https://techcrunch.com/2017/05/24...-and-more/
I have used G2 before, a few months ago.
I think it was a $15 dollar Starbucks gift card for the first review, and then $5 for each subsequent review for a total of 5 reviews. I had plenty of software to review from work, so I did it.
Really easy, just give your opinion. A few times they wanted a screenshot and they were being picky because I didn't want to give too much information about where I work.. but they did pay up and customer service was nice and responsive. just my 2 cents.
