Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, we have been so busy with a new adventure in our life. I am unable to write about it now, but will do so when everything is complete in the next few months.

But now, onto the last way that I make money using the computer. MyPoints.com First of all there are two ways that you can sign up to join My Points. First, just go to their web site and sign up. Second, I can receive bonus points for inviting you to sign up. You can do this by e-mailing me (address on the side), then I will e-mail you an invitation to sign up. I can only invite 5 people a month, so the first five willing to help me will get invitations in March.

But here is how My Points works: it is basically a get paid to read e-mails site. When you sign up, you will receive about 4 - 5 e-mails a day as bonus e-mails. Click them open, and scroll down to the bottom to the orange box marked "get points". Click the sponsors web page open, let it open the whole way. Then close it and delete the e-mail. It is just that easy. Everytime you open a e-mail you get 5 points. They do add up quickly. I personally only sign up for a few of the "get more points if you register" sites. And I make sure to enter my spam e-mail account. I have only purchased from Vista Prints to get my free + s/h business cards. Make sure you are only purchasing things you were already planning on getting, or it isn't a real money maker in the end.
I have been using My Point for a full year now. And to be honest I have just really been keeping up with the daily e-mails. I did purchase a $25 gift card to Resturants.com last month for 1250 points. I picked that card, because on thier web site you can buy $10 gift cards to local resturants for just $3.00. So for me, it was a way to stretch the "free" money even further. Don't tell my brother-in-law that he will be getting resturant gift cards for his wedding gift this summer :) Since purchasing that gift card, I already almost have enough to purchase another one.

So it really is that easy. If you would like to start now, go and sign up. If you would like to help me earn 100 points for every refferal, please e-mail me (address on the side) and I will send you an invitation to join. Either way it is an easy way to earn a little extra money using your computer.

Have fun, and let me know what kinds of gift cards you are going after.
