Go to www.searchcactus.com
click on "sign up and win"
Add your pesonal info
After you sign up, whenever you visit the site again, all you have to do is go to member login and login
Once you login it will take you to your account, there you will see your balance.
Near the top of the page (in the light green area) you will see a place to put your search word. Casino, cigarettes, web shopping and web hosting are usually pretty good.
Type in your word, click search. You will then see a list of links, some of which will have an "eye" in front of them(hopefully). Click on those links. Those are the only links that you will get credit($.01). You must let the link load fully and keep it open for 20 seconds...they state 20 seconds but we get credit when they are open about 12-15 seconds.
You can earn $.25 a day for searches. $.01 per search....25 searches doesn't sound so bad and it wasn't, but lately you really have to search for the links you will get credit.
Once you hit the $20.00 level you can click on the "send my check" button on your account page. Searchcactus will send your check out on the 25th of the NEXT month. Example: If you click on "send my check" on the 21st of March they will send a check on the 25th of April. Click on the 2nd of April and you get a check sent out on the 25th of May.
Because this is a time consuming rewards program I'll give you a hint on how to do it more effectively.
This may be tough for some, but try it, it really does save time.
We use MSN Explorer(free) and Internet Explorer(free). We open MSN, go to searchcactus, sign in and start. We then shrink the window by clicking on the "restore" icon in the top rigt corner of your screen and then use the mouse cursor to get it to the size we want by pushing and pulling on the sides of the windows.
Next, we open Internet explorer. We go to Blink(or any other program) and start doing that program. We then size that window so that we can see both (searchcactus and Blink) at the same time.
Then we click back on searchcactus in MSN click on an "eye" and open the link. Since we have about 15 seconds to do something while we wait to get credit for the searcactus link we can then do some of Blink.
Whew.....it is tougher to explain than do. I wouldn't try doing 2 or more rewards programs at once unless you are very comfortable doing each program and with your computer skills (ie. you won't panic when the computer siezes).
We also have a cable modem....I don't think it would be to your advantage to do multiple programs at once if you have a phone line.
