is a free Get Paid To (GPT) site. Members can make money online by completing free third party offers, answering surveys, watching videos, getting cash-back for shopping online, or recruiting new users and participate in their earnings.
Personal earnings: CashCrate provides higher-than-average incentives for their offers that differ for $0.02 for watching a video to $40 for applying for a free credit card. Members can literally earn hundreds of dollars in one day, if they qualify and complete all available offers. A more reasonable approach is to expect a few dollars each week though as most members are not interested in all of the offers or do not qualify. Although CashCrate is open to international members most offers are just for English speaking countries with a strong concentration on the US. Some users who are neither in North America nor in any Western European country report no available offer at all. At sign up CashCrate provides a $1 sign up bonus to every new member.
Referral earnings: CashCrate has a two level referral structure with 20% referral earnings for the first level and 10% referral earnings for the second one for standard members. At higher membership this can increase up to 30% for the first and 20% for the second level. Referral earnings are just paid for earnings through third party offers. However, members earn $0.05 for every daily survey any referral completes. In addition, members get a $3 bonus for every direct referral who reaches his first $10 in earnings.
Offers: The third party offers at CashCrate are mostly free offers including sign up for newsletters or online programs, program downloads, and free sample offers from companies. In addition, there are trial offers that usually require a credit card. Trial offers are free for the first month or they charge a small money amount. If CashCrate members do not cancel the trial offer in time, they get fully charged for every following month though.
Surveys: CashCrate provides US members with 5-10 daily surveys each day offered by established online survey companies. No incentives are paid for members starting a survey but failing to qualify. Incentives for surveys differ from $0.50 to $1. Completing one survey usually takes between 15 to 30 min. International members have fewer or no daily surveys.
Videos: Each day there are up to three videos available to watch. Members earn $0.02 for each video. Videos are just available for members from the US, UK, and Canada.
Shopping: CashCrate has an extensive cash-back section with around 20 different sites for US members. Among the available sites are Apple iTunes (3-4% cash-back), Microsoft store (2-3%), and Wal-Mart (1-4%). Most international members do not get any cash-back offers.
Toolbar: The CashCrate toolbar is just available for US members. For installing the toolbar and conducting 10 searches each day for two days they receive $1. After that members get $0.50 for every 25th qualified (new and unique) search with a limit of 10 searches each day.
Daily check in: US, Canadian and UK members get $0.03 each day for logging in and clicking the check in button which will show a unique advertisement after clicking.
Membership levels: There are different membership levels at CashCrate depending on the numbers of active US referrals a member has. Referrals from other countries do not count. Members start at Bronze level and reach Silver level, if they recruit at least 50 active US referrals. After Silver there are three more levels to reach: Gold (150 active US referrals), Platinum (300), and Elite (500). With higher levels members get more referral earnings and faster payouts.
Payouts: CashCrate has a payout limit of $20. Payouts are conducted via check or PayPal. However, PayPal is just available for Silver members or higher who already received at least one payout via check. Payouts can be requested at any time but will not get processed before the 15th of the following month. This means that payouts can take up to 2 month depending on the time of request and the location of the member.
