The End of Pact

An email from the Pact Team:

KoinMe

KoinMe is one of the more passive video watching sites I have used.  It is easy to set up and keep going.  It doesn’t require being the main page up so you can work on other things and let it run its course.  It doesn’t have breaks or stop until their are no more Koins to earn for the day.  It has a daily limit, so once that is reached, you can close the browser and give your computer a little break, or put it to use doing something else.

You begin by selecting one of the available offers.

It will pop up a screen showing the video is about to play.  A second screen will pop up that starts playing the videos.  Once each series of videos plays, the koins are awarded.

KoinMe has some rules to follow to get the most out of it:

Farewell from Media Insiders

Banner
Dear Lazy Money Guy,

We at Media Insiders would like to thank you for your participation and loyalty to our panel, so it is with great sadness that we send you this email.  Due to recent, rapidly unfolding developments, Media Insiders will be closing its doors on April 16th, 2017.  We hope that you have enjoyed your time with us and that we have made a positive impact on your life.

We are going to miss reading the thank you e-mails and positive reviews.  Those kind words about us, and the happy notes about how you bought gifts for your loved ones using the points you earned with us, truly made our day!

Notes About Data Collection
After our shutdown date, we will no longer be accepting any new data from our members. Week 15 rewards will be the final rewards distributed, and will be processed by April 20th. Please click here for directions on how to uninstall MI Mobile from your device(s).

Notes About Redemptions
Please note that you have 1 month to redeem your points from the Perks system after the shutdown date.  After that time, all points will be removed and all points accounts will be closed.  It is important that you redeem your points before the closing of your account.  We want you to enjoy your rewards and have good memories of our time together.

We have enjoyed these past few years with all of you and we wish it could continue, but sadly all good things must come to an end.  Thank you so very much for being a part of our journey. Best wishes to you.

Your Friends at Media Insiders

Digit’s New Fee Schedule

Email from Digit:

Hey Lazy Money Guy,

Today we have a couple of big announcements to make.

As Digit becomes a more important part of our customers’ financial lives, we’ve decided to make a conscious decision about how we want to make money: We work for you, and you pay us. It should be that straightforward. Too many financial services complicate things by making money doing things not in the best interest of their customers. Charging for Digit will allow us to support our service while making sure we always do what’s right for the customer.

A monthly subscription will cost $2.99. For all existing users, Digit will remain free for the next 100 days.

We are also significantly increasing the Digit Savings Bonus. All customers will now earn a 1% Savings Bonus (up from 0.20%). With the recent introduction of Goalmojis, customers are saving more than ever, and we want to make sure you’re earning real rewards for saving with Digit.

Thank you for being an early user, believer and fan. You have helped sparked the savings revolution. We promise to continue building products that make your financial life easier and better.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Fliiby

Click Here to Get Started!

Fliiby is a program that acts like Imgur but pays you.  You can post all sorts of pictures on it, from funny to artistic.  You start earning money from views of your pictures you upload.  They have a monetization program you have to apply for and be approved prior to earning anything for your uploaded pictures and files.

You can cash out at $25USD on PayPal, Skirll, and Payoneer, or have minimum $250 wired to you.

I try to follow as many people as possible and like or comment on their pictures.  There are some amazing photographers who use this site.  I have also seen that many who I follow will tend to follow me and like or comment on my pictures I have uploaded.

Fliiby has a lot of suggestions to maximize monetization, including the way you title the picture, describe it, tag it, and filter it.  I get emails from them occasionally with cool info on how to make my account more valuable and my pictures viewed more.

SweatCoin

SweatCoin is a step tracking app.  You earn SweatCoins which can be used to redeem for fitness gear, electronics, or other cool rewards.  The rewards change daily.

1000 steps equal 1 SweatCoin.

They have a battery saver mode but it comes at the cost of not tracking as many steps.  I don’t use battery saver mode because I have a portable backup battery I use if my iPhone battery gets too low.

This app also has membership tiers.  The more steps you have per day, the higher required membership to convert those steps to SweatCoins.

Another fun thing through this app is In-Voting offers.  Other users can post items they want to sell through the app.  You can post your own items or services for others to purchase using SweatCoins.  When you post an item or service, other users vote on including it in the Available Offers section of the app.  Once it gets there, they can purchase it and you earn the SweatCoins!

Available in the US, UK, and they are working on adding other countries.

SurveySavvy’s Project Gold

SurveySavvy has a program that runs in the background of your computer, your tablet, and your phone (Android and/or iPhone) and rewards you $5/month per device (up to $15/month or $180/year) called Project Gold.  Additionally, it is not limited to one account per household.  I have my account, my wife has hers, and we bring in a total of $30/month when connected to each laptop, tablet, and smart phone.

You will also get invites to different surveys, many of them pay $1-5, while others pay upwards of $50 when you meet pre-qualification standards.

You can cash out at a minimum of $1 at a time.  They mail a check for the amount you cash out.

By running their program on your devices, it helps them to narrow down which surveys you qualify for and saves you the time of going through prequalifying questions and rejections.
