If you have heard about TimeBucks, you probably know it is an online reward portal and survey site.
But is TimeBucks legit and a site that can really make you some extra bucks, or is it just a waste of time?
In this TimeBucks review, I will go over all the details about what the site has to offer, what to be aware of, and what my experiences with the site is.
After reading this review, you will be able to see if it is worth for you to join, or if it is better for you to spend your time on other sites.
What is TimeBucks and what does the site offer?
TimeBucks is an online reward portal, where you can earn money in several ways. Many of the offers it has are similar to other paid survey sites and online reward portals, but it also has some features that are unique and that I have not seen on other sites. Whether these are great opportunities or distractions depend on what you are looking for. But let’s go over what opportunities the site offers one by one:
TimeBucks offers quite a good amount of paid surveys. You can take surveys through a number of different providers while being logged into and get paid into your TimeBucks account. How many surveys that are available will however vary depending on the country you live in. But if you do not have a lot of surveys available, there are other ways to earn on TimeBucks.
You can watch small videos and will get paid when you have seen a certain amount of seconds. Easy way to make a bit extra. But the rewards for this option are very low, so not an option to use to really boost your earnings, but nice to earn a bit, if it is a video you would like to watch anyways.
There is an offerwall with access to a number of different offers. This can for example be to get paid to download apps, to sign up for a website, to test a product for free etc. Some of these offers have really good rewards. Most of them are also offered through other survey sites like PrizeRebel or ClixSense, so if you in general prefer using one of these sites, you can probably find the offers there as well.
There is a daily short poll. You can participate once a day and will get paid for it. It only pays you $0.01 to do it, but it is also only one question that takes 1 second to answer. So if you are logged into TimeBucks, you might as well do the daily poll.
Grow a beard:
This is a feature that I have not seen on any other platform and one that is kind of funny:-) You can upload pictures of you growing a beard, and make money doing this. I am not sure how much you can make doing this, as I do not really like having beard and have therefore not been interested in using this option. But if you have, I would love to hear from you in a comment below about what you made from it. Below, you can see an example of a member who has used this option and send in pictures while growing a beard:
This is another of the options that I have not seen on any other survey site I have tested. It gives you the chance to take a daily selfie and upload it, and get paid a little to do that. To use this option, you have to verify your account, by uploading a picture with a TimeBucks sign, so TimeBucks knows who you are and that you are not just stealing photos online and uploading them. Be aware that you have to agree to the terms and conditions to use this feature. The terms are that TimeBucks has the right to use the pictures in any channel or for promotion in the future. So if you are not interested in giving the platform the rights to your pictures, do not participate in this.
Mining is an interesting way of making money on TimeBucks. Shortly explained it is a way where you can sell your unused computer processing power by keeping the mining tab open. Just by keeping the tab open, your computer will be used to mine cryptocurrencies.
It might sound a bit complicated, but for it is is actually very simple to do. You just open a tab, and you can see a counter on how much cash you are earning by mining. You do not need to do anything else than keep the tab open, so it can even be done when you are away from the computer.
It will not be a way where you can make a lot of money, but you also do not have to make any effort, and it is something anyone can do, not matter where in the world you live. The faster your computer is, the more money you will make, and you can run it on several devices at the same time.
What ever you earn, you can get as cash into your TimeBucks account, or you can mine for raffle tickets for lotteries of up to $1 million. Under the mining tab, you can also claim a free raffle ticket every hour, so that is a great way to get some extra chances to win.
You can view different content and get paid for it. Mostly it is different slideshows that you can see and you have to watch 10 pages to get paid. This can be quite entertaining as there are some great slideshows for example about come crazy puppy pictures, best MMA fights, shocking facts about celebrities, worst tattoos ever, etc. It will not make you a lot of money to watch these, but many of us probably often watch slideshows like this anyway for fun. If you enjoy content like this, this is an option to get paid a little to watch it.
Timebucks offers several raffles where you can win extra money. Each raffle has a specific amount of entries possible, and as soon as that is reached, the winner will be drawn. You can use the earnings in your TimeBucks account to buy entries. There are raffles where you can win $1, $10, $50 and $500. One entry costs $0.01 and you can buy as many as you like. If you are lucky, this can be a great way to boost your earnings.
You can choose to sign up for receiving email newsletters from TimeBucks once in a while. By reading these emails and clicking a link in the email, you can earn a bit of money. The amount you can earn depends on the content of the email and varies.
You can invite other people to join TimeBucks and get paid a commission for this. You will get paid in 5 levels. That means that you will also get commissions for the people that your referred people refer. Not a high commission, but a little is also nice.
TimeBucks also gives you the option to buy referrals. That means that you can pay and you will then start having new people that signs up, “under” you and get commissions for their earnings. You have to buy at least 30 referrals, and they cost $0.15 each.
If this is worth it, really depends on how lucky you are. There is no guarantee how active the people that sign up will be. If you are lucky, the people that sign up and you get as referrals are very active, and you will make a lot of money from them. But if you are unlucky, most of them will just sign up but never use the platform, and then you will not earn anything from it. So it is a bit of a gamble, but might be worth testing, as it can be tested for a fairly small amount.
You can use TimeBucks to advertise or get answers for a poll you want to make yourself. You can for example make a poll where other members will give you answers. You will pay $0.02 per answer and have to buy at least 100. Other members will then get paid to participate.
It can be a great and easy way to get some feedback, if you have a company and would like feedback. You can also pay to get views on YouTube videos. Both options have the possibility to target the demographic you wish to.
Every day, the top 5 earners on Timebucks will be rewarded with extra cash. First place will get $20 down to $1 for the fifth place. And it is not that difficult to earn enough to be in the top, so this can be a great way to make a very nice extra reward.
Below you can see a short video tour and review I made of Timebucks, so you can see for yourself how it looks like after you join:
How do you get paid?
As you can see, TimeBucks has quite a few options to make a bit of money. Every time you do a task on the platform, you will get paid in dollars. But once you have made money, how can you then use them or get them?
TimeBucks offers a few different payout methods at the moment, which are PayPal, Payza and Bitcoin. Personally I love when survey sites pays through PayPal, as it is such an easy way to get your rewards, so I think it is great that this is offered on TimeBucks.
But if you do not like PayPal, you can just use one of the other methods. If you choose to get paid in Bitcoin, you can get paid directly into the wallet of your choice.
You can get paid once you have earned $10 which is a nice payout threshold. It is nice to be able to request a payout fairly quickly and not wait until you have earned a lot more, which is the case on some other survey sites. Your reward will automatically be paid out once you have reached the payout threshold, and Timebucks process these payouts once a week.
How much money can you make?
How much money you can make depends on a number of different things. First of all, of course how much time you will spend on TimeBucks, and how many of the opportunities you wish to use. It will also depend where in the world you live.
Some countries will have more surveys and wall offers than others. But because there are such a big variety of ways to earn, and many of them do not depend on your location, it is possible for everyone to make some extra cash. It will however be easier for you to earn, if you live in a country where there are regular surveys and offers on the offerwall.
But be aware that as with any other survey site, you should not expect to make a living from it. You can make some nice extra money on the side, but if you expect to become rich, you will be disappointed.
Who can join?
No matter where in the world you live, you can join TimeBucks. Which opportunities that are available will vary, depending on the country you are from.
But compared to other sites, it has a large amount of opportunities even if you live in a country where there are not a lot of survey opportunities. The content you can watch, the mining, the grow a beard challenge, the selfies, and the videos you can watch will be available for most countries.
Can you get support?
Yes, you can get support if you need help. TimeBucks has a support service that fairly quickly gets back to you, if you need help. And I have tested this myself, so I know the support staff is friendly and good at getting back to you, which is important for any service or platform.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons for TimeBucks to get a better overview.
- Big variety of opportunities.
- Possible to join and get opportunities from most countries.
- Some extra features that you do not find on other sites.
- Pretty user-friendly
- Pays in cash.
- Some opportunities have very low rewards.
In general, I am pretty positive about TimeBucks, and it is definitely a legit site. I think it is great that it offers some interesting and different opportunities, and also offers these for countries, where it is usually difficult to get many opportunities on survey sites.
Some of these does however give very low rewards. But many of the things, are things we spend time doing online anyways, and then it can be great to get paid a bit to do. So if it will be worth for you to join depends on what you expectations are, and if you find the opportunities on TimeBucks interesting.
