ok, I just cashed out for my first Disney gift card

Usually I cash out for amazon cards and the code is emailed to me, but I am trying to get some spending money for an Oct disney trip.

SO,,,,how long does it take to receive your gift card in the mail and what kind of envelope does it come in? I dont want to mistake it for junk mail

I haven't cashed out for gift cards in over 2 years so I don't recall. I always do PayPal and transfer it into our Disney account so it collects interest until our trip.

it took me a while. I was actually worried about it being lost! But go to your account history and watch for when the request goes from "processing" to "accepted". I think it is actually mailed once it has changed to "accepted". after it changes I'd expect it within a week.

I have one that changed to "accepted" on the 26th of Jan that I still have not received. I have one I requested on the 30th of Jan that still hasn't been "accepted".

I've been following along with this thread awhile and just cashed out my first Disney giftcard!

I have been waiting for a few to credit, too, and I just logged in and they all did except the 3$ one. It seems like most of Feb JUST credited, must have been some kind of delay.

Thanks for the help on everything! And one question for whoever that was that made 100 since Jan--is that on just surveys or what else do you do? I only have been doing surveys.

I have done 125 in a month. Surveys only. Its a HUGE time investment though. I usually do surveys a couple hours a day. I do them in the mornings before family wakes up on weekends, evenings after kids go to sleep on weekdays, and randomly inbetween if kids are involved in playing on their own.

My goal I made was to make $250 before May for our vacation. Once I hit the 200 I may slow down a bit so its not such a time committment. Of course, watching your dollars get bigger CAN be addictive! I may just continue on! I plan on using 1 gift card a day on vacation to pay for our breakfasts! Well, we now can eat breakfast 5/10 days on our vacation! I'm working on the 2nd half! Mickey waffles, here we come!

Congrats on your first gift card! Once you get it you'll be "hooked"!

I already am hooked! Just watching my balance get to 25 was addictive enough. It's not so much the time factor that I haven't earned that much, it's that I don't qualify half the time. And I spend 10 minutes to figure out I don't qualify! I'm going to keep at it, though!

I also do Swagbucks and am getting close to being able to get a 50$ Southwest GC...it'll be awesome to have part of our airfare and all of our spending money paid for on our Oct. trip!

I've never done swagbucks. Is it easy to rack up money there?

As for qualifying--I refuse to stop trying until I get AT LEAST 5 surveys to go through a day. I've had a few days I did'nt get that many and I felt really upset about it. I have a problem! I get so mad when the dollar surveys won't let me in!

Today Samplicio won't let me in for the world. I keep getting an error message after trying to get in. They probably have cut me off since I'm so obsessed! Anyone else having problems with Samplicio??

I have made 102.65 since Jan 4th. I do mostly surveys, but had a few shopping orders credit for a total of $5.42. I had to order my honeybells from Cushman's....just had to! And they got me back 1.50. I try to get at least 2 surveys a day not including a Greenfield. I don't ever seem to qualify for Opinion Outpost or Samplicio so I don't spend much time trying to qualify for those.

I want to say thank you for the tip about Ccleaner. I had done a lot of surveys in Dec and all credited but then in Jan, I hardly qualified for any and the ones I did didn't credit.
I did Ccleaner last night and I completed an SI survey this morning and it has already credited!
I don't make near the money you guys do as I am from Canada and many of the surveys are for USA only. If I try most days, I can do 1-2 per day and make about $20 per month. I don't do any shopping through QR though.

Anytime you clear cookies you will need to log back in. Clearing cookies deletes and info the site saved on your computer.

You can set ccleaner to ignore cookies. Click the Analyze button. Then go to Options...Cookies. Then move the ones you don't want cleared over to the keep list.

I am at $125 from surveys alone in one month. You must have wickedgood demographics! As patient as I am, a 42 divorced single middle income mom is either not desirable or over-saturated in the survey market. Most I get is about $30, and that is with dutiful time spent daily. Or does that include the survey paid offer types...like Eversave stuff.

Apparently somedays they really want the opinions of a 26 yr old middle income single mom and other days they want nothing to do with me. It's just like dating! I think my heritage is what gets me into most of them.
