While the name may not sound appealing today I'll be taking a closer look at a rewards site by the name of Grindabuck.
When I think and go about making money online I like to thing of it as fun and enjoyable and less being a grind however are Grindabuck legit or another money waisting scam.
I'll be answering that question aswell as giving you all the information you need to know about them all in this review.
What Are They?: A Reward Site
Worth It?: Not Really
For those of you who dont know Grindabuck is a rewards site that offers a variety of opportunities to make money.
This is a GPT so for each task you complete you will be paid out or in this case be rewarded points that can later be redeemed.
Like existing rewards sites you can earn money through ways such as completing surveys, Offers and a variety of other ways some of which I'll go over in a second.
Getting started with Grindabuck is fairly simple and takes a few minutes to sign up.
You will need to fill in a few details including your email or instead you can sign up using your Facebook account.
As with most reward sites there are normally a range of ways to make money which is the case with Grindabuck.
Surveys is the first way you can start making money with Grindabuck. These surveys aren't from themselves instead they are from market research companies there partnered with.
There a different surveys available to you, there are daily surveys which you can complete more then once a day and there also offer walls with more surveys.
As for how much you can get paid these surveys tend to pay out between $0.50 and $1, so not the most rewarding surveys however the points can add up if taken a few times.
Surveys will also take anywhere between 5 to 30 minutes. So they can be quite time consuming for the latter.
If your familiar with reward sites you may know about offer walls. These offer opportunities to make money through doing 'actions'. There are two types of offers you will want to know about being 'free' and 'paid'. Free offers tend to pay less then paid ones do however don't require a purchase.
Paid ones on the other hand require some kind of subscription or payment, although these pay alot more then the free ones do.
What's interesting but also quite complicated is Grindabucks tiered VIP Program. Where for each tier you unlock more benefits. Long story short the longer you stay and earn with Grindabuck the more they will reward you.
What kind of sucks is just how limited you are when you join, as the payment threshold is high and the reward options are low.
I've gone and worked it out and it takes $100 of $10 gift cards in order to unlock there lowest threshold of $1. It's cool when you get there however like the name of the site it is a long grind.
If isn't confusing already there are also different timings for when offers and surveys you complete are credited.
For e.g when you first start out an offer over 250 grindabucks is held for 2 weeks but ones less then that are credited instantly.
I've touched on how the payments work however let me go into more depth.
For a new member the minimum threshold is $10. However when you reach VIP Level 3 it goes down to $1.
Has for the reward options being new you can only choose rewards that are $10 so no less and no more. However again once you've reached VIP Level 3 you get access to full selection of rewards.
The main complaint with Grindabuck as to be the complicated and restricted VIP Levels.
With all the levels you will need to make a few thousand dollars to become a 'VIP Legend'.
This is alot of work and if you looking to make the most of Grindabuck I wouldn't recommend them unless you have plenty of time to kill.
To sum up Grindabuck is Legit however they are certainly far from being worth your time.
Sure you can sign up and earn rewards with a restricted account but in my opinion there are better sites out there with no restrictions on your earning.
