I think I’ve mentioned it on the blog before but in my downtime, I love making some spare cash. From selling clothes online to taking online surveys, I’ve found quite a few ways to make a little extra pocket change for myself. And most of them can be done while you’re just hanging out at home watching TV or something. Taking online surveys can be quite tedious and frustrating but I think I’ve found a new way to make a little extra cash….
LET’S FIND OUT
When the folks over at Dealspotr contacted me, I knew I had to check it out for myself. At first, I didn’t even realize you could earn money from it. Dealspotr is a coupon sharing website but it’s pretty cool because all the coupons are submitted and validated by real people! But the best part? When you validate various deals – you get rewarded!!
Let’s start with the coupon aspect of Dealspotr though. I’ve tried some other coupon websites (or even searching for coupons through google…) and none of them are as accurate as Dealspotr. Real people are checking these deals to see if they work and for how long they last. It’s pretty awesome! It’s also really easy to validate deals but I’ll touch on that in a bit.
How do you make money from this website you might be wondering?
So, when you sign up you have a daily checklist of things to accomplish. Most of them don’t take much time so it can be really easy to accumulate points pretty quickly. Most of the time it’s about validating deals. All you need to do is if you’re shopping online, you can take a screenshot of the deal you’ve used to validate it. You can also leave helpful tips about entering the code, which I found really useful. Sometimes online deals can be tricky to deal with.
So, once you accumulate a certain amount of points you can redeem them for Amazon gift cards, which I think is pretty awesome. And I find it a lot easier than using Online survey websites. With those, most of the time you answer at least 20 questions and then you don’t even qualify for the survey!!! It can be so frustrating. But with dealspotr, you always qualify so you always earn points!
The other cool thing is that yes, this is a coupon site but it’s also the only coupon site that you don’t have to spend any money to reap the benefits. I’m all about that haha. I also didn’t think I was much of an online shopper but they have a huge variety of sites – not just fashion. They post airline deals to beauty, etc. It’s awesome!
One thing I do find a little tedious is trying to post a deal. I find someone else has already beaten me to it… pretty much always. It can be frustrating to try and post a deal and not get anything in reward. It’s the one thing I haven’t quite mastered on the site.
When I was first using the site, I found it a little difficult to find where things were (for example, how many points I had or how to validate a deal) but it just takes some time to explore the site. It’s also supposed to be a social platform but honestly, I don’t see myself using it in that regard. But overall, I'm a big fan.
Have you ever used a site like this?
