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.

Making the Holiday Push. Helping Others Helps You!

It’s time to make the Holiday Push again. Everyone could use some extra month for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, and other holiday shopping. While some people do shop early and space it throughout the year, many people wait until the last minute. That can be a big financial burden for anyone living on a tight budget.

As you know, CashCrate is a great way to make free extra money, but there are a lot of people out there who don’t know about it yet. How do you get the word out? How do you reach them? How do you help others afford their holidays?

Visit other sites and forums where people may have an interest in making extra money. Be sure to follow the rules and contribute to the community. Some forums might allow you to have your CashCrate referral link in your signature, but not in the posts themselves. Don’t make a sales pitch type post either. Add to the current discussion and stay on topic. Become a contributing member and people will notice your signature on their own.


Social Media is another great way to reach people, but again be sure to follow the rules. Create your own pages, join groups, and network with others. Post interesting and engaging content and make posts on a regular basis.

Creating your own blog or site may be a possibility as well. Many CashCrate members have done this and instead of promoting their referral link directly, they promote their sites and blogs that contain CashCrate banners and links.

Most of us could probably use some extra money for the upcoming holidays. Let others know they can make holiday money at CashCrate too. When you help others, you also help yourself. When others make holiday money, CashCrate pays you a referral commission. That means more holiday shopping cash for you.
