Mobile Army Monday: Make Money With iPoll Without Ever Leaving Your Home

without comments

“All the comforts of home.” That is how many hotels advertise their facilities. The hope is you pick their business because it will be just like staying at your own house. Of course, (say it with me) there is no place like home. It might seem odd to talk about staying home in a piece dedicated to Mobile Missions. After all, you need to get mobile to complete those missions, right? As it turns out, not all the time. There are plenty of ways you can make money with iPoll without ever leaving your home. All you need is your iPoll app and/or access to the website. Here’s how it can all happen:

Mobile Army Monday: DIY Money Making With Online Surveys

without comments

Do you consider yourself handy around the house? I have to admit that when it comes to wielding a screwdriver or hammer, I do okay. I wouldn’t be going for a contractor’s license anytime soon, but in my time I’ve built many IKEA pieces, swapped out the locks on the front door, hung paintings, and even accomplished a little toilet repair (my proudest achievement). That is probably the extent of my DIY abilities. When it comes to auto repairs or plumbing, I would prefer to avoid the “do it yourself” idea, and turn it over to the professionals. However, when it comes to making money with iPoll online surveys, I’m a master at DIY. In fact, iPoll Mobile Missions are all about DIY making money. Yes, you can share the mission, but the money will be all yours! Consider these recent Mobile Missions I took on as a DIY challenge–and won:

Mobile Army Monday: Journaling Your Way To Cash Rewards

without comments

Who among us has kept a journal? Love of journal writing usually begins when we’re young and have many “Dear Diary” entries to write down. Nothing beats stumbling across one of those old journals. All the drama, all the angst, and looking back it just seems like nothing could ever have been so dire as your journal made it seem. Last week, I filed my Monday morning report, relating how completing an iPoll survey can lead to other surveys. Now I am at liberty to report the details: and they’re pretty sweet. This Mobile Mission also allowed me to get back to my journaling days–only this time, I was earning cash rewards!

Mobile Army Monday: Fast Response Earns Extra Cash Rewards

without comments

One of the sad realities of life is that nothing lasts forever. Sooner or later, you’re going to have to buy a new car or refrigerator or even a mattress. That is expected. What is truly sad is when you miss out on great opportunities because time runs out. That brings us today’s subject, “Fast Response Earns Extra Cash Rewards.”

Let’s unpack that subject, shall we? Not all iPoll Missions are available to all iPoll participants. You might not always notice this, but in the lower left hand corner of the mission post there is an expiration date for that mission. There is also a notice about how many spots are left open for that mission. Something like the New Product Scavenger Hunt always has spots open. However, according to my app, the hunt is only on for the next six months. That might seem like a long time, but if you don’t get in there and start posting new products, you’ll never be in the running for the big cash rewards offered to the most prolific posters. This is why it is vital that when you see an iPoll Mission, take an iPoll Mission.

If you’ve been paying close attention over the past couple of months, then you should have gotten some great ideas about saving money. We’ve suggested ways to get a household budget up and running. We’ve also shown how you can make extra money on the side. There was even a great list of things you could sell from your home. If you put any of those plans into action, then you could be sitting on a nice bundle of savings. Time for a vacation, right? Actually, it is, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend everything you’ve worked hard to earn. Just because you’re going on a holiday doesn’t mean you can’t continue with the money saving. Because there are also plenty of vacation hacks that will go a long way towards reducing your spending and stress levels. After all, you’re supposed to be chilling out, right? Take a gander at these great vacation hacks for your upcoming summer trip:

Mobile Army Monday: Earn Fast Cash Rewards Every Day

without comments

Are you a planner or procrastinator? If you have to think of the perfect answer to that question, then you’re probably a planner. If you’ll get around to answering later in the day, then you’re probably a procrastinator. But when it comes to scoring cash with iPoll, you might want to bring out your planning tendencies. That’s because a lot of the Mobile Missions and surveys have time limits on them. In other words, if you snooze, you lose. It would be horrible to miss out on a huge cash reward because you didn’t plan out your Mobile Missions. Perhaps the following guide can help:

Smart and Affordable Gift Ideas For Toddlers

with one comment

Every new parent asks the same question: “Are the terrible twos really terrible?” The resounding answer is; “Yes.” Actually, whether or not the terrible twos are, in fact, terrible depends a lot on the two-year-old in question and their parents. However, one thing you can count on is that once a kid becomes a toddler, they love to explore; this usually involves a lot of chasing on mom and dad’s part. It also means a lot more of, “Don’t put that in your mouth,” “Give daddy back his cell phone” and “Go find mommy.” This newfound energy is the reason your kids need to be occupied with safe and engaging toys during the waking hours. If you have a toddler in your world that has an upcoming birthday, you might consider these affordable gifts (we say “affordable” because you really shouldn’t spend a lot on a toddler’s gift. Chances are it will end up broken long before their next birthday).

Mobile Army Monday: Share Your Opinion and Earn Easy Cash

without comments

If there is one thing we can all agree on, it’s that we all have a lot of opinions and, therefore, tend to disagree. Try counting up all the times you shared an opinion during the course of any given day. Such opinions can address everything from The Walking Dead season finale (amazing!) to mushrooms on your pizza (not a chance!). Some of us are more vocal about sharing those opinions. Thanks to the wonderful wide world of the Internet, we can now share every opinion about local restaurants, the latest comic book movie adaptation, or even which flavor potato chip is your favorite (crab seasoning!). Even more exciting, there is one amazing website that offers cash in exchange for your opinions: iPoll. You might not even have thought about some of these topics, but once iPoll poses the question, you can’t keep your opinion to yourself. Why should you? You can earn easy cash with every share!

Mobile Army Monday: The Quickest Route to Earning Extra Cash

with 2 comments

Most pre-packed foods that we purchase in the grocery store come with microwave instructions. Snacks and dishes like popcorn and macaroni and cheese have been transformed by microwave use. Let’s not even get started on all the complete meals that can be prepared in the microwave. Does microwave food taste better? From a purely subjective standpoint, perhaps it does to some. It’s undeniable that in microwaving our food, we’re sacrificing something in terms of freshness. Because of all this microwaving, we now demand everything in the amount of time that it takes to turn a tuna sandwich into a tuna melt (a convenient 60 seconds). We now expect our computers to load faster, our Internet streams to run faster, and we balk at the injustice of having to wait in a traffic jam.

Of course, wouldn’t it be great to earn money in the same amount of time that it takes to microwave a meal? Just push a button and you earn ready cash. This hypothetical is actually a reality. With every iPoll Mobile Mission, you can earn reward money in minutes. iPoll makes it possible to complete a Mobile Mission and earn significant cash in less time that it takes to microwave some popcorn (2:40). I have certainly reaped these time-efficient benefits by completing my own color-coded missions.

Mobile Army Monday: No Need for Hacks with iPoll Rewards

with 4 comments

Before the Internet came along, to “hack” meant to chop up something as in, “Why did you hack up the turkey instead of using an electric carving knife?” (true story). Now, thanks to the wide world of web surfing, “hacks” (also called “life-hacks”) are popping up all over. These are meant to make our lives operate more efficiently. Hacks are workarounds that let us take shortcuts to get the job done. Like using a rubber band to remove a stripped screw, or binder clips to keep your charging cables organized.  Personally, I can’t make it through my day without a least three or four good hacks. That’s just how I roll. Of course, there is one daily function I perform that doesn’t require any hacks. That would be checking in with my iPoll app Mobile Mission list. This is the best way to earn a little extra cash–and you don’t need any workarounds.
