What happened to SWAcash?

SWATcash used to be one my favorite GPT sites, I talked about it a couple of times on this blog. They had the best contests, giving over $1000 to the winners. They recently filed for bankruptcy, because of all the server costs. If you were a member with cash in your account they said that they will pay all their members whatever they owe before they finish for good.

Taken from Brian the owner:

“Due to all of the recent events I am sad to say that SWATcash will be shutting down effective December 1st, 2008. We will strive to do all we can to get payments out in a timely manner. Unfortunately if all goes well we will only be able to pay out Offer Earnings, Referral Commission, Shopping Earnings, and Click Earnings. With shutting down we have to end our contracts with the company that runs our servers which is really putting the strain on the company’s wallet and possibly charging us more than we will have coming in, in which case we will have to file for bankruptcy. We hope that they will be glad to work with us and get that number down so we can payout all of the members who have made payout through December 1st.

We know this sucks, you don’t have to tell me twice. We are still waiting on checks that are now almost 2 months late to us. I have been told recently that a check was over-nighted Wednesday only to find out today that it still hasn’t even been sent. That is just how it has been going lately for us. We are doing everything in our power to get what is owed to us so we can get what is owed to you. We realize that this is a terrible time for this to happen as Christmas is just around the corner, but believe me that this is hurting us just as much as it is hurting you. A lot of you may think that we have a mound of money in the company that we are sitting on but the truth of the matter is, is that it’s just not true. With paying to keep the site up, paying our employees the money is going down just as fast as it is coming in because every lead is being scrutinized more closely than ever and it is taking a longer time for payments to be processed. Now days all a advertiser has to do is say “I think we have some fraud here” whether it be one lead or 100 and your full payment is held till it is figured out which can take months.

Like I’ve answered before, “Why don’t you have an emergency fund?”, we did but it got taken out when we paid out in August and we later received word of fraud from the month of July and August. That’s just how it goes in this industry and for a long time we took small hits here and there but never one this big. We always put the members first throughout this whole 2 year run that the company has been around and don’t intend on changing now.

We really appreciated working with all of the truthful members that stuck around on the site and forums from the very beginning. Without you guys we would have never made it anywhere. The forums were always active and fun to be around and it truly made my job a little bit easier with all the helpful members answering questions when a mod or admin wasn’t around to answer them. I want to thank all the mods for doing a great job around here keeping the forums clean and informative. I’d love to thank Jeremy and Will for doing an excellent job keep the site new with cool features and making the site as unique as it was. Thanks to Soylagringaloca who did a great job handling support and making sure it was done in a timely manner and keeping it as upbeat as possible. And also thanks to SWATAP for providing us with pictures for visual representation of topics and posts. He kept the forums lively and bursting with activity. I hope I didn’t miss anyone but thanks to everyone involved with SWATcash it was like one giant family even though sometimes it got a bit out of hand.

The site will go down sometime tonight or tomorrow morning. I apologize for how everything went down and how this ended up, but I give you my word that we will try to payout members what they deserve and rightfully earned.”

ChaCha - Would you like to dance?

Cha stands for search and ChaCha stands for dance. Clever name, eh? Well it is. The concept is very clever. ChaCha is a site where you answer people's texts for money. People text 242242 from their phone (standard text messaging rates apply) and your job is to look up the question and answer it as a ChaCha Guide.

An example would be,

What is the size of a hippo?
(You would look it up, and the answer would look something like this.)
A hippopotamus weights up to 3 1/2 tons and grows 13 feet long and 5 feet tall.
Thanks for using ChaCha and text back at 242242!

ChaCha has a brilliant concept, and is beneficial to both the texter and the ChaCha guide. ChaCha is not like a GPT site, you can actually make decent money with ChaCha ($1000 a month or more) where with GPT sites you can make about $100 a month.
For ChaCha you make $.20 per search, they take about .5-3 minutes. The pay is good, you can make $6-12 and hour easily. It is also great because it won't interfere with your schedule. You can work whenever you want, and for however long you want to. ChaCha is a great service and it is currently only accepting people who are over 18 and located in the US. You can either get paid monthly through your bank account or whenever you want through a debit card that is set up through ChaCha. If you are interested in joining ChaCha as a guide then please just post a comment with your e mail.

I have made $160 already in about 4 days of work and this is an example of the kind of earnings you will get in a month.

Raining Riches closed down

Hey guys,, the GPT site is now officially closed. It has been a great time with Raining Riches. I made some good friends and also made some good money. Raining Riches is now an eBook on how to create your own GPT Site, if you want to you can check it out at.

Thanks for the great times.

My favorite GPT Sites

If some of you guys do not know by now... GPT means Get Paid to. These sites can be anything from making money by taking surveys, clicking ads or even referring people. I happen to have a couple favorite Gpt sites, I will be talking about why they are my favorite and the services they offer.

1. is a site where you are paid to click. When you first join the site you might think this site is measly; how can I make any money from this site? When you first join as a regular member you are able to click about 10 ads a day and each ad pays you $.01. You might think wow, 10 cents a day big whoop. Making money from this site does not come from clicking your own ads.. it comes from inviting and referring friends to the site. has an interesting referral program where whoever you refer you make whatever they make.
Lets say you have 50 referrals and they each click 10 ads a day.
50 x $ .10 = $5 daily... without doing anything!
If you have problems referring people you can also buy unreferred members from there site.
I bought 300 members from their site and I am almost in profit from just 12 days and I am currently making about $20 a day.

They also offer different referral packages..
Click here to Purchase 15 Members for $16.98
Click here to Purchase 35 Members for $34.95 and save 10%
Click here to Purchase 100 Members for $98.00 ($5.00 Cashback Bonus)
Limited! 500 un-referred Members! is also great because it offers a premium membership.
The premium membership is only $59 and it lasts for a year. With the premium membership all of your, and referral clicks are worth $ .0125 instead of .01. With the premium membership you also get a mastercard atm card where you can withdraw your earnings at.

Overall is a great site to invest in! Thousands of members have made in the thousands from

To join or for more proof check it out by clicking the banner below:

2. Cash Crate

Cash Crate is a site where you fill out offers and surveys for money. Cash Crate is currently one of the most used gpt sites with well over 500k members currently making money. Cashcrate is unique because it has a wide variety of offers to complete and a sorting menu to help you find what kind of offers would appeal to you.
Cash Crate is also one of my favorite GPT sites because its referral commission is outstanding. It offers 20% for first level referrals and 10% for second level referrals. Also whenever a referral reaches a $10 cashout you automatically get $3 for free. This site is also great because the more referrals you get the higher referral commission you will get.
This site also offers referral contests and highest earner contests where they give out wii's and big cash prizes.
From this site you can definitely make $500 a month easily, with a good amount of referrals.
Bottom line:
I think this is the best site for making money by filling out surveys. The contests and referral commission offered by this site is unmatched.

Check out cashcrate today!

3. My third favorite site is : SWATCash

SWATCash is just like Cash Crate in where you make money by filling out offers. SWATCash is a great site to join because it is always best to be part of multiple GPT sites... the more different GPT sites you are part of; the more money you can make. SWATCASH offers a wide variety of high paying offers and ways to make money. With SWATCASH instead of doing offers you can also make money by clicking ads.
SWATCASH also offers a unique combat system, you can fight people for coins and with that you can eventually buy prizes. Unlike cashcrate SWATCASH offers a only a 20% referral commission only to first level referrals.

Overall I think this site is a great addition to have in your GPT list.

Join today!

If you join all of these sites and eventually get to the point where you are filling out a bunch of offers and have a good amount of referrals then you will be on you way to making good money.

Also if you happen to be part of any GPT Sites please comment about your experiences and tell me what you find is unique about it.

Bought 200 referrals from

Hey everyone. 2 days ago I just bought 200 referrals from and also became a premium member. I will be tracking my progress and stats at my new blog

Just like me you to can make money from To join go to my referral link. I am a premium member which means who ever I refer will be able to click 20 ads instead of 10 and will be able to make 1.25 cents a click rather than 1 cent a click. All you have to do is click ads and once you accumulate at least $10 then you will be able to cashout.

These are the example of the earnings that you can make.
Earnings Example
» You click 20 ads per day = $0.25
» 25 premium referrals click 20 ads per day = $6.25
» Your monthly earnings = $195.00
» Your total annual earnings = $2,340.00

GPT Site Tips and Tricks

Does it cost anything to join GPT Sites?
No these sites are completely free to join. Of course, some offers on the sites offer trials which you have to pay a small shipping payment(usually like 3 dollars) to get 20 dollars, although most of the trials are free.

Ok, I joined now what?
Once you join first thing you have to do is verify your email address. That means you have to make sure you put in a valid email address. Once you do that some of the sites might ask for a phone verification. After that you browse the sight and look for offers to fill. If you don't want to fill out your phone number on the offer because you don't want to get spam there is a free voicemail service on laservoicemail. Also if you don't want to receive spam to your main email account you can just make a free email account from gmail to which they will send the offers to. Another note is to make sure you put in all your exact details, chances are companies will not mail you anything because e-mail is much cheaper.

Best way to complete offers:
First thing is first.
1. Make Sure to use different email accounts: As long as you own the email account its no problem to use whatever one that you want. If you use the same email address on the same company their might be more chances that they won't accept it because they want a variety of leads.
2. Clear your cookies/cache between every offer. I recommend you use ccleaner.
3. Go to "tools" in your browser window and set your internet options under your privacy tab to "accept all cookies." This does not decrease the security of your pc but it does help to insure approval of offers.
4. It is recommended to use either Internet Explorer or Firefox, most sites don't work well with any other browsers.

Once you make sure you have all those above steps done then you can start completing offers. Just browse the site for offers and once you find one that you like click on the link. Once you click on the link follow all the instructions that the site recommends and make sure you complete it fully. After that mark the offer as completed and then the offer will be pending and will be credited to your account usually within less than a day.

Are these sites Legit? Yes, GPT sites pay big money for your opinions. When you complete a offer they pay the GPT site for your information and then the GPT site pays you about 75% of what they made. Also since spam advertising is really inexpensive a bunch of companies use this method rather than putting it on TV(etc.).

Some important reminders:
Most offers will be completed and if not make sure you follow all my steps.
You have to earn Minimum payment to get paid. They usually pay every month.

Want referrals?
*Please bare in mind that for referrals you don't take any percentage of what your referral makes, it is a pure bonus.*
So.. you joined a site, completed offer and now you want referrals.. For referrals I recommend posting your link on forums, tell your friends about it, post ads. You can also join this site. They bring a bunch of interesting customers to your GPT sites.

Just post a comment if you have any questions!

Have fun making money online!

Alert Pay better alternative to Paypal

I hate paypal with a passion! They are so annoying to deal with, you have to verify so much garbage just to get a check sent to your house. They also put my account on limited access just because I received affiliate cash. I recommend this program instead.

Reasons why AlertPay is better: Click

Once you join AlertPay you can join this excellent PTC site

You can earn money by clicking ads online, all you do is click 10 ads per day. Your money will really accumulate in no time.

There referral system is also really great! If you have 100 referrals this would be your monthly breakdown.
» 100 referrals click 10 ads per day = $10.00
» Your daily earnings = $10.00
» Your weekly earnings = $70.00
» Your monthly earnings = $300.00

Go check it out there is nothing to lose.
