Most of my “Christmas cash” this year was due in large part to what I’ve done throughout the year. What do I mean by that? There are just so many different things you can do to earn a bit of extra money (cash) here and there. While I do enjoy surveys, I haven’t done as many the last few months because I just haven’t had the extra time. But there’s one program that I consistently use each and every week that does not take a lot of time….YOU DATA!
I started with YOU DATA in the beginning of 2009, and actually opened my first PayPal account so I could receive payments each and every Friday….cash!
START NOW FOR NEXT CHRISTMAS – If you spend as little as 2-3 minutes per week over the next year, and ignore the money accumulating in a PayPal account (like I have), you can have “Christmas cash” for next year. Cash that you can either transfer to your checking account or use to buy items online.
The concept is simple…..Advertisers will pay you to view text ads (and visit the homepage of their website). What I love about YouData is that you can fill out a profile about yourself and give as little information as you want……that you are a mom in TX, for example. Hardly any information is required. Log into your YouData account whenever you want and they will tell you if advertisers are willing to pay you to look at a text ad….this includes companies you’d recognize, small companies and organizations too. I have found some great new companies this way too, especially smaller boutiques. They pay you to look at an text ad – doesn’t take but a minute or so. You earn cash. CASH.
Every Friday, YouData deposits the money in your PayPal account for your activity that week. Safe and consistent. Every Friday. They won’t send you emails or reminders….you just visit them whenever you want. I like that. I try to remind everyone to visit YouData each Friday before “paytime”, because they won’t email you.
How do you Get Started?
SIGN UP: YouData sign-up – click here
CELLPHONE: You’ll need a cell phone number (only for sign-up). They do this in order to make sure you are a live person and aren’t trying to set up multiple accounts. They will text you an activation code…..and that’s it. I’ve never received anything else from them.
PAYPAL account: You’ll need to open a PayPal account if you don’t already have one. You Data was the reason I opened my account, and it’s already come in handy. Many popular retailers like Robeez and others let you order online and pay using PayPal. I love PayPal because I can transfer the money easily into my checking account.
MeFile: Fill out your MeFile (profile) and tell them as much or as little about you as you are comfortable with….what kind of music you like, etc. This will help them get the right ads to you. They don’t want to offer you children’s clothing ads to watch if you have no children.
Sign up your Spouse: You can have 2 active accounts per household….you’ll need separate email addresses and cellphone numbers though so they know you aren’t trying to double dip.
Visit once a week: Remember, what I love most about YouData is that you won’t get emails from them reminding you to visit. If you don’t visit and log-in, you won’t get any $$$, it’s as simple as that. I try to visit each Thursday (right before they send out payments for the week). It takes me no more than 2-3 minutes to view my weekly text ads. Some weeks there may be no ads for your particular demographic….they may be targeting women or men of a certain age that week. There have been weeks where I’ve earned up to $6.00 and some where I earned 20 cents, but little by little you’ll save up that money. Just forget it’s there in your PayPal account til next year!
PAYDAY: Every Friday, usually in the afternoons for me, you’ll receive a notification from PayPal that YouData has sent money to your account for your activity that week.
