 Updated May 2018

Every year businesses give away thousands of dollars in free money and gift cards as a way of promoting their websites/products. I’ve put together a list of companies that will give you a ridiculous $2000+ in free cash right now.

If you install their app, they’ll pay you $5/month per device. And you can install the app on up to 3 devices. Plus they’ll send you a $5 bonus after the 12th week. (Totals $185/year)

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Sign up at MediaInsidersPanel.com
  2. Install and activate the MI Mobile app onto your device(s).
  3. Watch your e-mail for important information and instructions on next steps. Also, at no time is a member’s personally identifiable information ever shared or released publicly, nor will they ever interact with you via social media.

Screenwise Trends Panel is a market research program for Google. They recruit panelists to be a part of internet research.

The folks over at Ebates.com, the cash-back shopping site, are giving away $10 gift cards when you sign-up as a new member. You can choose either a $10 Target, Walmart, Macy’s, or Kohl’s gift card. You need to make a $25 purchase at any of the stores on their shopping list in order to qualify for the free gift card.

The first time I used it, I had actually forgot I had signed up for it and was surprised with that gift card. If you are a heavy online shopper, the cash back will really add up quick.

Hi! Danielle,
I am a new subscriber, and I wanted to signup for Digital Reflection Panel. Unfortunately, I tried and end up getting a link to survey savvy connect instead. Does Digital Reflection Panel have a direct link of its own? Thank You.
