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.

Big referral program changes are coming!

When CashCrate started in 2006, a flat percentage on offers and a 5 cent commission on surveys worked well. Things have changed though. Today, there are a lot more surveys than there used to be, so it makes sense for our referral program to change too.

Starting March 1st, you’ll earn more money for every Survey and TopSurvey* a first level referral completes! Bronze members will now earn 20% of what their direct referrals make doing Surveys, TopSurveys, and Cash Offers! Those percentages increase as you add more referrals!

Bronze - 0 Active Referrals - 20% First Level

Silver - 50 Active Referrals - 25% First Level

Gold - 150 Active Referrals - 25% First Level

Platinum - 300 Active Referrals - 30% First Level

Elite - 500 Active Referrals - 30% First Level

You also get a $3.00 bonus when a referral from any country earns their first $10.00. When you reach Silver, the $1 referral bonus becomes available too: $1.00 when a referral in the USA, Canada, or the UK completes their first survey or cash offer.

In addition, you’ll also still receive 5 cents for every Bonus Survey item a first level referral completes and 5 cents for each Bonus Offer.


This increase in Survey Commissions should help our referrers earn even more! Start pushing your referrals to complete more surveys and watch your earnings grow!

*Note: The commission on TopSurveys will be effective immediately.

Stay tuned for more changes.

    I agree with ZSchuler02. Nothing is really changing at all.

    From CashCrate: Referral commissions on surveys are increasing greatly. :)

    How to get more points into my account and reach the claiming amount easily?

    From CashCrate: We have a great FAQ guide on the forum that contains info about doing offers, surveys, referring, and more. It's helped a lot of members make a lot more money here:

    We also have a great Offers guide here, that discusses tips and requirements:

    Nothing really is changing at all? Am I missing something?

    From CashCrate: Currently, members earn 5 cents for every Daily Survey a first level referral completes, and 5 cents for each Survey from TopSurveys. That's being increased to 20% (and higher as you move up to the Silver, Gold, etc. levels). The $1 referral bonus for Silver members was paid when a referral completes a cash offer. Now the $1 bonus will be paid when a referral completes a survey or an offer.
