Here are some of the tried and proven sites for either making some small cash on the side or for getting free samples.






MyPoints….this was my very first experience with getting free things online. You get points for reading emails and you also get points for signing up for offers. You can then redeem your points for various offers. What I like about this site is that the points can be redeemed for things you actually use. I redeem mine for gift cards to WalMart.

StartSampling….I love this site because you get free samples of different things. You do need to check daily because the samples change without notice but you can get some really nice things here. If you are interested you can email me at  lulugal AT howisavemoney DOT net and I can send you a referral link to click on so that you can become a member. You can get samples like a year’s worth of a free subscription to a magazine or some granola bars.

Blogsvertise… sign your blog up and advertisers contact you to write for them. Write a good article that is approved and you will get paid.

Blogitive…..another avenue that allows you to get paid for blogging. Submit your blog and pick from a number of available opportunities.

PayPerPost….come on you guys know what this is. Similar to Blogitive. You submit your blog and after it is approved you pick from a number of available opportunities, write something and get paid.

LoudLaunch…….again you submit your blog and choose from a number of available opportunities to write about a topic.

If you need more information about any of these please email me so I can get you the referral to get started.

I have had varying degrees of success with each of these sites…..some I use multiple times and some have only been once or twice but these are the sites that actually DO work because I have tested them myself.
