It seems legit, I joined as a member, my screen name is Shalimar, the name of the site is "Scour", it's a search engine. You get points for every search you do, enlisting friends, and making comments on the search results. After you achieve a certain amount of points you will get a $25.00 gift card. Here is the link: Tell them Shalimar sent you. :D

I will check it out, I am up for some money and it doesn't sound too difficult.

It's really very simple, I normally use google to do my searches, but I'm going to use this search engine instead, I did a search for the site, then I commented, I got 1 point for searching and 4 points for commenting. I'm not sure how many points you need to get the gift card, but I figure I do searches anyway, I may as well be making a few extra cents in the process. :D

Treasure Trooper is one of the few LEGIT online GPT (get paid to) communities where you can fill out short surveys and receive 50 cents to $20 for each one.

You can sign up by going to w w w . treasure trooper . com /268512, and start making money (they will mail you a check, or deposit into paypal once a month). The above link will give me credit for the referral, so if you want to help me out, GREAT! If you want to just check it out without giving me the referral, that's fine too, because in my opinion, for the minimal time involved, it's actually worth it.

I've got a method, where I use Roboform to fill out the surveys for me, and just click a few buttons, and i'm done. I do it for about 30 minutes to an hour every day, and make anywhere from $10 - $20 per day. If you're really into it, you can make tons more.

Go to the following website for proof:

Feel free to ask me anything about it, i'm not trying to advertise, I really do think this is a decent way to make a little extra cash on the side!

Do you have a choice if you want cash or a gift certificate, on Scour?

Not really, all you can receive is the visa gift card. :)

I joined Scour last summer. I haven't earned enough points to cash out yet but almost there. I use it when I do ChaCha for searches so I can rack up a lot of points.

They have a contest now where for every search you make you get an entry into a $1000 drawing each month for the next three months starting this month.

Anyone ever used InboxDollars? I just signed up and am waiting to see how it works out. This is one you get paid to read emails, play games, surveys, etc. One of my read emails was for homescan by Nielson. This where they provide you with a hand scanner and you scan everything you buy. Says you can earn gift points for brand named items. Anyone ever done this?
