Pinecone Research Get Paid For Survey Participation



Pinecone Research paid surveys – This is legitimate and one of the best paid survey companies. You get paid a flat $3 for each survey you do. The surveys only take 5 – 10 minutes. There is no minimum for payout. They will send you the first $3 via check in the mail then after that you can request a virtual visa card or choose among a wide variety of gift cards or merchandise. I prefer to get the virtual Visa cards because you can use that like cash. Whenever you complete a survey $3.00 will be added to your account. You may “cash out” at anytime and get your Visa or gift card via email. I have included a copy of the first check they sent. $3 is not a lot by itself but it only took 5 minutes of answering questions about grocery items to get it and I have gotten numerous more $3 credits since I got the check. So it is not a fortune, not get rich quick but it is 100% real   Click the image to go straight to Pinecone’s website to sign up Or use this QR...

Is Selling Avon Worth It?



The Real Profit Percentage Avon recruits tons of women by advertising their 40 – 50 percent commission rate. While this is true in the portion of the sale sense, it is not the whole situation. Just to get to the 40% commission rate, you need to sell at least $425 worth of Avon products every campaign. Since the average person spends around $25 per order, you would need 17 customers every 2 weeks. Example Scenarios The examples are going to be on the generous side. I am not going to include gas costs since everyone gets a different gas mileage. I am also going to assume that you will be delivering all of your orders on your own. However, I can almost guarantee that if you are selling enough Avon products to make a decent profit, you are not going to be able to handle it all on your own. Keep that in mind as you look at the figures. Casual Avon Representative Scenario You order and hand out 20 brochures. You get 5 orders for an average of $25 each. This is a total order amount of $125....

Honest Information About Consumer Scams



As technology increases, we find ourselves with the world at our fingertips. So much of what used to require at least a trip to the post office can now be done from our home or office computers. This certainly eliminates some of the stress that our day to day routines can bring, with paying bills, shopping, and even work projects done online – however there is a drawback to the information highway. It also makes it easier for scammers and thieves to rip us off. Unfortunately, thousands of people fall victim to consumer scams each year, and the ‘computer age’ has only brought an increase to the amount of people that are exposed to frauds. It’s not just the new age of technology that is to blame though. Some of these scams have been around for years and even continue once the right information is made public. A lot of that has to do with the fact that too many people take what they are told at face value without really researching the facts. Very often the truth is...

The Salvation Army: A History Of Giving



As we hustle and bustle (does anyone actually ‘bustle’ anymore?) to get our holiday shopping done, we will see a familiar sight outside of many stores and businesses. Volunteers ringing a bell and standing in front of a red kettle with the emblem of the Salvation Army proudly displayed. This tradition is as familiar as the Christmas carols that come through the speakers in nearly every mall and store in operation. I might be in a hurry, but I make a point of stopping and giving a bit, even if it is only a dollar or two. Regardless of the amount, I will likely get a smile and good holiday wishes from the one minding the kettle. There is something about that smile that is just as rewarding as the squeals and sighs I will hear on Christmas morning from the kids as they open their gifts. That smile represents thousands of families worldwide that benefit from the services provided by the Salvation Army – and it starts with every penny that goes in to those kettles. The Salvation...

Hughesnet Lies and Has Terrible Customer Service



I live out in the “boonies”. DSL or even cable are not available here so I am forced to choose between dial-up or satellite. I have been using Hughesnet for my internet for over 2 years now and I can honestly say without any reservation that they SUCK and I hate them. I am considering moving just so I cant cancel the service! The local phone company has been telling me “any time now” on the DSL for more than 2 years but so far they haven’t gotten out here yet. The Hughesnet Internet service is not reliable and is constantly experiencing problems. I am paying almost $100 per month (double or more than what DSL or Cable would cost) yet the service is crap. Hughesnet Service Sucks When you call them up on the phone you will get someone in another country who can barely even speak English. You have to repeat what you are trying to say over and over and they usually still cant understand. I can barely understand what they are saying either. I have went to the Hughesnet...
