Earning Money Online as a Stay At Home Mom

As a stay-at-home Mom to 5 kids, I am always looking into earning extra money. Over the past several months, I have been playing around with Vindale Research and have had some success with earning money online.

I am already halfway to getting my first payment of $50 and I recently got to review a full-size jar of anti-aging cream. They must have known that with a teenager and toddlers, I would be a good candidate for anti-wrinkle cream. I can’t wait to see what else I get offered, maybe a massage or some wine to sample.

How do I find time to work on surveys with little kids at home? I can usually do 2-3 while I sit down and watching a cartoon with the kids. I can open them up on my phone or my new Kindle Fire, which makes it really convenient.

There are several online earning opportunities available through Vindale:

  • Surveys and Offers are higher-paying offers that y0u are eligible to complete. Some require you to sign up for a service or sample to review. For example, Blockbuster DVD program, you pay $4.99 to test out the product, they pay you $5.01 for your 20 minutes, then send you a payment for $10. Just be sure to cancel the service if you’re not interested in continuing, so you don’t get billed for it.
  • Studies are available to a limited number of participants on a first-come, first-served basis, and will close out when the limit is reached, you should definitely take advantage of them as soon as possible. Studies  pay $1.00 each and you can do up to 10 a day. Let’s see if you do 10/day for 20 days out of the month, that’s $200.00 a month for doing answering questions on your free time.
  • Videos are quick commercials that you get paid to watch. Be sure to actually have the page open or you will miss the number that pops up during the commercial and you won’t receive credit. I thought I could multi-task and earn money by listening to the commercial, it didn’t work out.

  1. Thanks – My husband recently had rotator cuff surgery and this a 6 to 8 month recovery before he can go back to work so money is going to be tight. He definitely can watch commericals and do surveys while sitting at home – this would really help.
