How I Earned My First $50 From Dealspotr in 8 Days
I love Amazon gift cards. Everyone I know shops online these days and who doesn’t love to shop for free? I spend a small fortune on Amazon every month and any time I can quickly and easily earn gift cards, I’m on it! Most of the other typical points-for-rewards sites are slow going, but not Dealspotr.
Dealspotr makes earning points, which translate into Amazon gift cards (or cash –> keep reading) super easy and it’s fun, too!
Read this detailed tutorial, join Dealspotr, confirm your email, then come back. By using my referral link, you’ve already gotten $5 (5,000 points) free! You can cash out once you hit $10 (10,000 points). Complete your first checklist and you’ve earned another $2 (2,000 points). You’re already at $7 and you’ve hardly done a thing. 🙂 Now let me show you how I earned my first $50 in only 8 days. It was quick, easy, and fun and you can do it, too.
To complete the following steps, you’ll first need to be upgraded to an Influencer. To achieve this, you will need to go to your settings by clicking on your profile photo in the upper right corner, then Edit Settings in the drop-down. Here, you will need to enter your blog’s URL and at least two social media links.
Once you’ve entered your blog’s URL and your social media links, go here. Click “I have an access code.” On the next page, enter this code: 0yN5HqBq and click the green Upgrade button. If that code doesn’t work for some reason, please email me and I’ll get you a new one right away!
You should see this next:
Yay! You’re now an Influencer. Now let’s get you to Gold Status.
Go to Influencer Tools by clicking on your profile photo in the upper right corner, then clicking Influencer Tools in the drop-down. As you can see, there are three levels – Bronze Status, Silver Status, and Gold Status. If you’ve followed the steps above, you should already have unlocked Bronze Status. All you have to do is enroll and confirm your email.
Next is Silver Status. To unlock Silver Status, you will have to:
- Complete your new user checklist (remember, this step already earned you 2,000 points or $2)
- Enter your blog’s URL in your settings
- Place a Dealspotr button on your site (make sure they can see it from your homepage/landing page – put it in your sidebar)
- Validate your site
Unlocking Silver Status earns you 15,000 points ($15).
Guess what? You’re already ready to unlock Gold Status. This step may take a few days. It took me 8 days from sign-up to Gold Status. It may take you more or less time, depending on how motivated you are and how quickly you complete each step. From the time I completed the Gold Status steps until they verified it and applied my points, it was 5 days. I signed up on 12/19/2016, completed the Gold Status steps on 12/22/2016, and received the Gold Status points on 12/27/2016 – 8 days from the date I joined.
Unlocking Gold Status requires the completion of these 4 steps:
- Post or validate your first 5 deals on Dealspotr
- Try out the Dealspotr deal sharing widget on your blog
- Write an informative article/blog post about Dealspotr (detailed instructions)
- Submit your article for review (here’s mine)
Once Dealspotr accepts your review, you get another 25,000 points ($25).
Remember at the beginning when I said you could redeem your points for cash? Another bonus for Gold Status is that you can now cash your points out via PayPal if you want to, rather than via Amazon gift cards.
Let’s recap: Join with my link and get 5,000 points off the bat. Complete your first checklist for another 2,000. Unlock Silver Status for 15,000 more, then Gold for 25,000, for a total of 47,000 points, or $47. You only need 3,000 more points to reach $50 and that’s super easy! You get points for each deal you validate, invalidate, or enter. You also get 200 points per checklist you complete and you can do one per day. This 200 points is on top of the points you’ve received for each deal you shared, validated, or invalidated, so just by completing your daily checklist and doing nothing else, you can easily earn 500-1,000 per day. After you’ve unlocked Gold Status, share your blog post everywhere to get referrals, which earn you even more points! You get 2,000 points per referral, plus commission on all of their points! And when someone you referred unlocks Silver Status, you get another 5,000 points ($5).
Do you have plans for your first $50 at Amazon? I used mine for a few late Christmas gifts. 🙂 What are you going to do with yours?
