Get Paid To Surf




All the Paid to Surf and Money making Info is HERE! - So much hard work & not penny in sight? Ho hum, unless you have a second occupation, earning a living from entertainment can be difficult.

Make no mistake, the music business can be very rewarding, unfortunately not always financially!! Gigs have a habit of coming in bunches with gaps in between, Christmas and New Year are great but January & February can often be a little lean. When you have bills coming in, rehearsals, music and tracks to pay out for every penny counts!!

We can all do with a few extra pounds and so we've put together a list of ideas that will pay you: while you surf the internet, pay you to search, pays you for receiving email, pays you for receiving text messages on your mobile, give you free shares, pay you to bet (yes really), earn with your website & any other useful gems we come across.  We will also be providing information on how to earn money as a singer/musician whilst still learning the trade at the so keep popping back to check on our progress!

All of the sites we list provide Free registration and software where required.  We have removed sites that have folded and those that have since brought in service charges - personally we feel it is a bit of a liberty charging folk for reading their advertising but some companies have now introduced schemes where they fine you if you do not either visit their site 21 times a month or use their adbar for 8 to 10 hours minimum!

Don't be fooled by claims that you can earn fortunes using these schemes - the average payout for 1 hours surfing is about 20 to 40p and there are limits to the amount of hours they pay you for.  Its true that you can bump up the money by using other schemes in conjunction with pay to surf and of course by recommending friends and family but unless you know tons of people or have a highly visited website with people who sign up and all use the system religiously then its unlikely you'll make tons of dough!!  So why bother? Well you can earn a few pounds a month (depending on usage) for doing what you already do, surfing the internet, reading emails & messages.

If you encounter problems or can recommend any other similar schemes, do let us know and we will add the information to our list - we do not affiliate to all of the programs suggested below, but if you do decide to join up to any of them, please use our reference number or name where provided. - Thank You ;-)

We are constantly updating this page so please bookmark this page using 'Control+D' & call back often to see the latest companies.

Free Postcode Lottery
Although you do not get paid a regular amount for belonging to this site, you can build up your pot which is then added and paid out with the prize money offered in the various postcode lotteries if you win. The site is free to register and add your postcode - logging in daily to check the lotteries adds pennies that build up into pounds over time. There is a main postcode lottery, a survery lottery, a video lottery and other chances to win.

PAYS YOU TO SURF

There are a host of companies offering you money to surf the internet, all of whom basically operate in the same way.    You download their software which you have open whilst online. The software usually consists of a bar that rests at the top or bottom of your screen which displays advertisements and keeps track of the amount of time you spend online, called, unsurprisingly, an ADBAR.    You can earn money, points, or competition entries and receive extra's for people you recommend who sign up to the service.

Most reputable companies have online facilities to check your account to see how well you are doing.    Signing up is easy, take a look at the companies below, click on the link, fill in the form & sign up!    Most of them operate in Britain, are free to join and are known to pay out.

It is worth reading our notes - some older computers or monitors will be unable to use some of the software and it helps if you are using a FREE Internet Service Provider.
