Day 3: Money-Making Challenge Continued

Earnings: $6.05 for 55 minutes of work. 

This evening, I dedicated two hours to my 30-day challenge to earn $100. I earned $6.03 from doing transcriptions and $.02 cents from Survey Junkie.

Survey Junkie Earnings

In an effort to earn money from the other sites I identified in yesterday’s blog post, Day 2: Online Jobs That Pay Via PayPal, I did additional research and figured out what steps to take to start earning money from them.

Survey Junkie

Survey Junkie often shows up in recommended online job articles so I was curious to test it. This site gives you the opportunity to complete surveys in exchange for cash. Once you have reached 1,000 points, the equivalent of $10.00, the money will transfer to your PayPal account.

Each survey is assigned a specific number of points which translates into cents. For example, if you complete a 100 point survey, you get $1.00. A 50 point survey would be 50 cents. In the upper right-hand corner of the survey, you will see the approximate time it takes to complete a survey. See below screenshot. If you did three surveys worth 100 points each that take you 20 minutes, you would earn $3.00 for that hour. This might not be the best use of your time unless, of course, you’re sitting in front of the tv or traveling somewhere as a passenger, and don’t mind answering survey questions while you wait to get to your destination.

I accessed Survey Junkie and did one survey for a whopping $.02 cents.

Transcription Services

QuickTate: The application process for this company requires three references, a quiz, typing test, and a background check for which you have to pay them $20.00 by PayPal or credit card. One of the guidelines for my challenge was to avoid paying money for classes, background checks, etc. For this reason, I did not apply to this company. To view the QuickTate employment requirements, click here.

TranscribeMe: I provided the basic information to become a transcriptionist. I’m at the stage where I need to take exams in the languages I plan to transcribe. I will save these for another night. To apply to TranscribeMe, click here.

Rev: I passed their grammar and transcription exams last month when I started exploring online work options. Tonight, I earned $6.03 for transcribing a 12-minute, 4-second interview in 53 minutes. The faster you type, the better. I type 60 to 70 words a minute; however, I often have a hard time hearing what is being said which significantly slows me down. You will not become rich doing transcriptions but you can earn extra money. To become a transcriptionist, click here.


Ibotta is a free mobile app that gives shoppers the opportunity to earn cash back on purchases after uploading a copy of their receipt. Tonight, I signed up for Ibotta. I still need to add the mobile app to my phone and explore this option further. To access Ibotta, click here.


You can use Foap to turn your photographs into money. The first step is to download their app to your phone which I will do later in the week. Tonight, I read through their site, watched the video, and learned a bit more about the company. Photos are licensed to buyers for $10.00. $5.00 goes to Foap and the other $5.00 is yours to keep. I have yet to try this; however, I am curious to see if any of my photos would sell. To access Foap, click here.


I read through the requirements to become an eJury member which you can access here. I will fill out the application process another night since it is almost 11pm here. This site is area dependent. If lawyers in your area do not use eJury, you will not have access to any cases. I will sign up and give it a try though.

Let the challenge continue. Until tomorrow …
