Last month I participated in an offer from Viewpoints to earn an $11 Amazon.com gift card for writing 11 product reviews. The reviews must fall into certain categories (all of mine were health/beauty related) and must contain a minimum of 900 characters per review. I wrote right around 11 paragraphs about products I have either tried or use on a regular basis, and BAM, today I received the code for my Amazon.com gift card worth $11.
This month they are offering a very similar deal. You can earn a $10 Amazon.com gift card for writing 10 participating reviews. I certainly plan to do this again; it was easy money! You can try it out by visiting Viewpoints and signing up yourself.
Here's another idea, for those who may want to maximize their dollar earning potential. Go here to CashCrate first and sign up (read my Extra $ Ideas page for more info on CashCrate). You'll automatically earn $1 with CashCrate for signing up, and then you can go to "Offers" to find Viewpoints. They will reward you $.50 per review you write (I believe- please read the exact offer carefully), plus you can still earn the Amazon.com reward directly from Viewpoints. If I am correct on the amount per review on CashCrate, it would be like earning an extra $6 on top of your Amazon.com $10 credit using this route. If you are also working towards Swagbucks, you'll see how quickly you can start purchasing gifts, treats for yourself, or items you use regularly for free through Amazon.com too!
By the way, I am not sponsored by any of these companies and this is my honest opinion regarding a great way to earn a few extra dollars and/or spending credits at least. If you use my CashCrate or Swagbucks links, I do get a small referral credit, so I always want to be up front and honest with my readers about that; however, if that makes you uncomfortable, you can always search and go directly to the sites without those links and still get the same rewards : )
