Making money with Scratcher ticket apps

Hey Readers!

THIS was a fun one to test out! LOL

You definitely could not quit your day job with this one though.

The first app I tried was called Lucky Day. This one is a free app. I would get 23 scratchers waiting for me every morning and 2 raffles. I would scratch them all and see if I won anything and then in the evening I would get 10 more scratchers. To scratch all my scratchers and watch the ads that pop up takes about 5-7 minutes.

Not all the scratchers offer money. Some offer tokens, then you can redeem your tokens for gift cards and various items they have. Keep in mind 1 Million tokens equals about a $1.00 so even if you win 250,000 tokens it means you just earn $0.25. It sounds exciting to win 250,000 tokens but it’s just a quarter.

In the two weeks I have now been playing these scratchers I have won $3.75 cash and 1.7M tokens. Most of the money I won was as quarters. So if you convert the tokens into dollars I’ve made about $5.00 in two weeks and each week I spent about 30 minutes scratching. Nope definitely can’t quit my job at $5.00 an hour. LOL but I will say it’s super fun to play and it’s super easy; and for a free app there really isn’t as many ads as you would expect there to be.

However, for the app Lucktastic I gave up on it after 2 days. There were just SO many ads and you had to scratch certain ones, that would make you share or post on social media, before you could go forward and scratch other stuff. I don’t like the idea that I don’t have a choice to skip over them. Also I spent so much time watching ads. It was such a waste of time compared with Lucky Day.

I picked these two apps because when I was researching ways to make money, one person had suggested it because it could make you up to 500.00 a week. I think that was dangerous for the person to be advertising and I’m pretty sure the app doesn’t realize how it was inadvertently advertised in a unrealistic way. Also I wonder if the person that posted the article even tried half the suggestions that were on there because most of them would probably earn you next to nothing and nowhere near 500.00 a week.

User Testing Update

Here’s my quick update:

I’ve had over 35 tests come through the past week and all of them required I take a screen test before the actual test. The screen tests figure out if I am part of the demographic they are looking to target; Of said 35+ tests I have qualified for none of them so far. That is quite disheartening. On top of that I feel like I have enough information on my profile that most of these tests should not have come through to me because it was already on my profile. Example: I needed to know how to speak some German to take one of the tests but I don’t so I couldn’t take the test. In my profile I wrote down that I only speak English. So why did I get a German test? That doesn’t make sense to me…

I’m not really sure what demographic you need to be in order to actually qualify, but an early 30’s, full time, female, mom, who only speaks English doesn’t seem to be it. LOL

Has anyone else tried this? What results did you get. Leave a comment be low and let me know!

I’ll keep you posted if I get any that I qualify for.

Becoming a User Tester

Make extra money by becoming a User Tester for Apps and Sites

Hello you amazing people!

Recently I found a way to make money by being a user tester. What does that mean? It means, there are people developing apps and webpages and want to have them tested out by everyday people. So you sign up, take a test, if you pass the test you can get $10.00 every time you give feedback. Feedback takes about 15-20 minutes. So you can potentially make about 30.00-40.00 an hour.

Sounds like something you want to try? Okay, here’s more details:

-Go to

-While there they will ask you to complete a test video. What does that mean? It means you have to download their recorder. They will make sure your microphone works. (They will be recording just your voice NOT your face but they WILL record your screen.) Your voice is tested when you read a sentence on the screen.

Once that is successful you move on to completing your test video. I won’t lie, it was a bit intimidating if you’ve never done that before. What happens is, they will have popup instructions and you just follow the instructions while the recorder is going and you just say what you’re doing as you’re doing it and give feedback. In this case they gave me a link that took me to the Air and Space Museum in DC. The instructions where things like, locate the map. So you talk out loud on where you think that would be. So for me I said something like, “I see a visit tab and having a map when you visit seems logical; so I am hovering over that tab and I see a menu that shows the map option. I clicked on map and now I can see first and second floor layouts of the building with a  guide below it. Now I’m going to the next task.” And I just continue to talk out loud as I complete the tasks. The last task was for me to find which holiday they are closed on, which was harder for me so I gave feedback that said something like, “It was easy to find the closed holiday with the search option but for someone who just scans pages quickly like I do it would be nice to have it bolded on the home page so it catches my eye better because right now it just kind of blends in with the rest of the content.” From there I was asked about 3 questions. It took maybe 2 minutes to answer them and I was done.

After that it takes a few minutes for the video to upload but nothing crazy long. It was about 3 minutes for my 13 minute video.

From there you just wait for a response. The automatic response is that your video is under review and they will get back to you in a few days. In my mind that means they have a week or less. Lucky for me, it took 4 days. I’m not sure if this is the average or not, but that’s how long it took for me.

Once you pass their test you will need to fill out your ‘Profile’. The more information the better here, because if they want to test a certain demographic they will know if you qualify or not. Then there are two Lessons you will need to read/watch and there will be 3 or 4 questions after each section in the lessons. They are super easy as long as you’re paying attention. Each lesson is about 10-15 minutes (or longer if you have children hanging on you!)

Once that is all set up you just leave you browser open and you wait for the “PING” sound to let you know you have a test you can do.

Upsides and downsides

So the downside is I have small children. This means having a quiet, uninterrupted session is iffy. On the upside, there is a pause button. So if you need to pause your video you can and when ready, you can resume.

Another downside is that the example application video they had doesn’t work; so I didn’t have an example to go off of. The upside is that the written instructions, once you get in there and do it, is pretty good. However, you’re not sure of the level of information you should be giving. So, at the back of my mind I’m thinking… hmmm is that too much information or not enough? I’m thinking more is better because they need to know the thought process behind the user. However, they may not have needed a 5 minute session of why I think something should be logically in a certain spot. So again, having a application video example was a good idea, but unfortunate that it didn’t work.

Downside- You might not want or even qualify for all the tests you get and you don’t get to control how many you get. In order to get tests on your dashboard screen you have to leave it open. Once you get one you might not want to take it because it asks you to enter personal information or there are more questions then there is time  or something. Some might be longer than you want it to be (upside to longer ones, if you do a good job you will get a bonus). Also, there doesn’t seem to be that many tests per week. It looks like it averages about 2, but maybe it’s just me and my demographic. I’m not sure yet. I think it’s also because I am not a rated user.

Over the next week or so I will be actually doing the User Testing so check back in and I’ll let you know how much time I spent with it and how much I was able to make.

Be sure to check back in for an update!

Make Money Fast

Hello my sexy smart readers!

There are lots of schemes out there that tell you, you can be rich over night by investing little to no money and takes hardly any time at all! Well if it sounds too good to be true it probably is, but why not test a few…

Some items I am wanting to test out are:

User Testing– This is where you test out different sites and apps by completing tasks and giving feedback.

Matched Betting– this is where you take advantage of free bets given out by bookmakers so that you can do a back bet (for something happening) and a lay bet (against something happening), the bets cancel each other out and you walk away with the winnings no matter what the outcome is.

App scratch offs– Online scratchers. How much money can we really ever win off of these “free” scratchers?

Healthy Wage– This one is where you bet any were from $5.00 or $1,000.00 that you can lose the weight you said you would for the month. And if you lose weight they pay you but if you don’t lose it you pay them (I could totally use this motivation!)

As a full time employee and mom it’s hard to find time to do all of these at the same time so be sure to keep checking back in for updates. I already have a couple of these rolling along so be sure to check back in for updates here soon!

Also, leave a comment below if there is something you think I should try! Any “get rich fast for no money at all” Schemes that I should try?

Yours Truly,
