CashCrate is no longer accepting new registrations and will be sunsetting our program effective April 1st, 2019. Instead, we've partnered with SwagBucks to give new users a $15 sign-up bonus, and existing CashCrate members a $20 bonus. These deals are exclusive to CashCrate and are our way of saying thank you for so many great years.

The Internet is shutting down for 24 hours

The Internet is shutting down for 24 hours due to maintenance. The outage will begin at 12:00 AM EST (3:00 AM PST) April 1st and last until 12:00 AM EST (3:00 AM PST) April 2nd. During that time, live connections to your favorite sites will be unavailable, though cached/saved versions may be available. Your ISP should have more details.

Social media will need to be done face to face. Texting may also be affected depending upon your provider. Most digital interaction will be interrupted during this time.

Servers need to be dusted. Finger prints will be removed from computer screens. Crumbs will be shaken out of keyboards. The cloud needs to be vacuumed. It has gotten very dirty. Network cables will be upgraded. With more people on the Internet, we need thicker cables to keep the pipes from getting clogged. Old data will be archived and obsolete data will be flushed.


April fools. The Internet will never close. It is like a convenience store, open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You can always get your favorite things like snacks and making free money on CashCrate.

If any of the words appear blurry as you read this, you may need to clean your own computer screen. Look for any fingerprints and other smudges that may be obscuring your view. Local maintenance is up to you.
