Spare5 Update on Payout Amounts

Email from Spare5:

Spare5 is still paying you every Friday – as long as you have earned at least $5.

Big things are continuing to happen at Spare5 – but the biggest thing will always be our super Spare5 Community. To help it keep growing, we’re making two key changes. 

A Small Payout Change
Payouts will still be issued every Friday by 5pm PST – but beginning February 10th 2017, the minimum earnings balance needed to be paid will increase from $1 to $5. This will help Spare5 improve tasking quality and make more tasks available to Fives who do them well. This ultimately means more and better tasks on your task lists.

A Big Tasking Change
A more exciting change is just-this-close to being here: task feedback while you’re tasking, with quality scores showing how you’re doing, plus updates and hints to give you opportunities to improve. We’re adding the final touches, and we can’t wait for you to experience it.

Thank you for being part of the Spare5 community!


Qoinpro is more for fun and one of the most passive earning platforms. I have made a few bucks per month worth of different cryptocurrency over the past years with it. It automatically starts accruing bitcoin bits (and other cryptocurrencies) daily without having to do anything.  It also gets a lot better when you get more people signed up.  Each referral level increases your daily reward rate.  But even without referrals increasing your daily reward, it still adds up and requires no work after it is all set up.

Snapstar Changes to Earning Amazon Gift Cards

Email from the Snapstar Team:

Dear Lazy Money Guy,

We wanted to give you a heads up that on Tuesday, January 31 we will be removing the Cash Out page.

Instead of this page, you will be able to earn cash (Amazon gift cards) directly from purchasing a certain number of items from participating brands.

In addition, you can still always use your stars to buy sweepstakes entries and win prizes.

Thanks for your attention, and happy snapping!

Suchflex Shut Down as of November 25, 2016

Here is the email they sent out:

Dear Lazy Money Guy,

Ivan and John started Suchflex with the goal of bringing the benefits of distributed computing to everyone. Although we have been successful in getting interest from owners of consumer devices to contribute their computing resources, we have not made as much progress in building the demand-side of our distributed computing marketplace. With that in-mind, we have made a difficult decision to suspend our consumer-facing Suchflex service for the time being.


All Suchflex users who have current earning on the Suchflex platfrom will be redeemed by this Friday – November 25th 5pm PST. Please make your preferred Redemption choice by that time. If you have not communicated a choice to us by that time, we will redeem through Coinbase to the email on record for your account.


Everyone who has made redemptions into FLEX, will be redeemed in USD +10% of their original redemption. (ie. If you have redeemed $100 into FLEX, you will be paid $110 USD). The payments will go to your communicated preferred method of receiving redemptions by this Friday – November 25th 5pm PST. If you have not communicated a redemption choice to us by that time, we will redeem through Coinbase to the email on record for your account.


If you would like to stay in touch with us and hear about our future developments – great! – there is nothing to do. We have your email on record and will shoot you a message in the future. If you would not like to receive future emails, please unsubscribe below.

Flex on,

– Ivan, Co-Founder and CEO at Suchflex
