Online Income Updates for June 20 - June 26, 2020

Once a week we post a round up of what we have made on most of the things we do to earn income online.

There are a few other things that we do, but these are the ones that at least one of us has cashed out from in the past so we can verify from personal experience that each of these actually does pay out as promised.  

We are providing this data to assist those who are considering starting one or more of these programs to supplement their own income.


Accelerant We have received the $50 for last month's work and been approved for an additional month.  I also did a survey that was supposed to pay $2.00 but I have not seen the money for that hit PayPal yet.

Appen  I am an independent contractor for Appen and submit an invoice for the previous month at the beginning of the next month.  Thus far my invoice for June has $56.02 of completed work.   (Note this is not all I have done for Appen in June as there is always a lag of at least a few days between when I complete a project and when it shows up on the invoice.)

CashKarma (Doreen) is up to 2,964 points.   I am 8,036 points away from our next $10.00 gift certificate.

CashKarma (Jamey)  is up to 2,146 points.   He is 8,854 points away from a $10.00 gift certificate.

Checkout 51 is still at $0.26.  This one is going very slowly as I have not gone to a brick and mortar store since February 28th.  Thus this one is only building a few cents at a time during the rare times when they have a video to watch.

DailyBreak  Why I No Longer Recommend This One

E-Poll Express Yourself is still at 2450 points now, as I only receive occasional invites for surveys.  We need an additional 4,800 points for our next $10.00 gift card.

Fetch   4179 points because we have not been going to brick and mortar stores to get receipts.  We connected this to our Amazon account as e-receipts are supposed to count but so far I am not seeing any sign of that.  (This is included here though as we have cashed out from Fetch (gift cards) in the past.)

Google Play (Doreen) I am at $6.37 but this tends to vary as I do use this money for various things on Google Play.

Google Play (Jamey) Jamey is at $13.25.  He uses this from time to time for small things.

Ibotta remains at $9.98.   Connecting it to our Walmart account for grocery pickup and delivery is working.

InboxDollars is up to $13.46, need another $26.54 to cash out again.   (You can cash out at $30 but they charge you $3 to do that, so we prefer to wait until $40 so that we can keep everything we make.)

Kelloggs Family Rewards is back up to 910 points.   I just noticed that they are now allowing receipts from online orders too.  We meant to give that a try and report back in this week's round up how it worked, but this past week has been rough and the next 10 days or so will also be challenging for us.

Mturk (Doreen)  My Mturk is $0 at the moment.   This is after cashing out $11.81 on June 26th and $22.20 on June 12th.  Mturk does an automatic biweekly cash out for me.  So far I have earned $192.88 from Mturk this year and $1,379.25 since I started it in 2018.

Mturk (Jamey)  Jamey's Mturk is at $1.01 as he has recently done a cash out of $14.87 on June 24th.  His prior cash out was $42.67 on May 25th (he has his deposit once a month.)

Nielsen - remains at 2433 points as we only get points from them once a month.  It takes 1,500 points to get a $10 Amazon gift card and 3,750 points for a $25 Amazon gift card.  We usually get gift cards from Amazon but once we chose to get a headset instead.

Pawpoints remains at 685 points.   When we reach 775 points, we can get another coupon for a free 25 pound box of cat litter.

PineCone is back up to $3.50.  My last cash out was $25 in the form of a Walmart gift certificate on June 14th.

Qmee (Doreen) is back up to $10.37 after I cashed out $30 on June 14th.  Since I started, I have cashed out $177.06 on Qmee.

Qmee (Jamey ) is up to $18.37.  Since he began, he's cashed out $89.12

Shopkicks is back up to 392 but is rising very slowly as since we are not going to brick and mortar stores, we are only earning shopkicks from watching videos.  It is going to take quite a while to get back up to 1250 for another $5 gift card.   (We used to accumulate points much faster when we were actually going to the store instead of ordering online only.)

SurveyJunkie is only back up to $2.16 as I don't do it often because the prices for surveys are not very good and I get kicked out of most of them.    I stick with it though as each point is worth one cent and over the time I have been on it, I have earned 7,027 points, i.e., $70.27 worth.  (I have cashed out on this one several times, so as with everything else on this page, I know they actually do pay.)

Swagbucks.  We are back up to 2497 swagbucks, so we have more than enough now to get our next $25 e-gift card at the beginning of July using that once a month special deal.   We currently have a 75 swagbucks swagup, so we will get a 75 swagbucks rebate as long as we get it before July 4th.  (We already have $150 worth of e-gift cards on our Walmart account, adding this one will allow reduce our July Walmart.com bill by $175 which will help a lot.)

UsabilityHub (Doreen).  My UsabilityHub is up to $4.80.  I need to get it back up to at least $10 before I can cash it out again.   So far I have cashed out from Usability Hub six times, $88.70 total.

UsabilityHub (Jamey) is still at $9.10.  Total cashed out for him is $26.30.  Sometimes lots of these come in for us, other times we go through a dry spell.



Something Old


Another ongoing minor source of income for us are our Teespring and Redbubble shops.  


Something New


We have both started using Prolific this past week also but neither of us has cashed out from it yet, although Jamey has now earned enough to do so.  Once at least one of us has cashed out, we will do a blog post about it.

Something Borrowed


We use Placeit for most of our graphics.  We pay $99 a year for this service so they are not quite "borrowed," but as it is not our artwork, I am designating it as borrowed for this.




Something Blue


To keep with this week's theme, I've chosen our Graffiti Artist line as this week's featured product.  We have 66 different products with this theme in our Redbubble shop.  If you would like to purchase one of these for yourself or for a proud graffiti artist in your life, we will receive a part of the price work the work and will be thankful for your purchase.

One of our 66 Graffiti Artist Products



Despite the theme for this week's blog, we are not announcing that we are getting married.  We simply cannot do so because Jamey would lose his Medicaid if we did and given his very serious health conditions, he absolutely has to have insurance.  We are very grateful to Medicaid for all that it does from taking care of Jamey's ongoing diabetic and wound care clinic expenses to providing a new wheelchair for him.  (He was measured for his new wheelchair yesterday and should have it in about eight weeks.)

Since we live on approximately $22,000 a year for a household of two disabled adults and two special needs cats, there is no way we could afford health insurance for Jamey on our own. (Thankfully, I have Medicare to take care of my own health insurance needs.)

I will do a future blog post on the issue of benefits for online gig workers.
