How are you guys doing today?. I thought of doing a fun post today. Its not a freaking scam. Let me tell you that upfront.
I love sharing my opinion. That’s why I began blogging in the first place!. I seem to have an opinion about everything!. Even when my family and I hang out at a restaurant and at the end of the dinner, when a slip with a small survey about my experience at the restaurant is provided, I take the time to answer it. My family might at times say “Come on, let’s go!”.. But I would stay and complete the survey and then go. I am so crazy about surveys. Ok now am blabbering on!!.. Haha.
Well, recently I got to know about this site called Arab Eye. It brings out surveys, delivers it straight to your inbox and then rewards you with points. Each survey, offers points from a minimum of 20 to 60 points or more. Sometimes it takes probably 5 mins or like 30 mins to complete a survey. Surveys are on varied topics, say, about your internet usage or your opinion about a particular company etc. Now, lets get to the AWESOME part. Each 50 points is equivalent to USD1. You MUST create a CashU account (which is free to register for) and then once you get to 50 points or multiples of 50s, you can just redeem your points for US dollars!
CashU account is accepted at a variety of online shopping sites. My favorite out of them are Groupon and Souq. There are hundreds more of sites where they accept CashU. I once tried to go ahead with a payment on Souq, and found that when I finally reached the payment page, where I selected mode of payment as CashU, the currency was automatically converted from AED (Dirhams) to USD (US Dollars).
I think this is simply too good. As soon as you complete 5-6 surveys out of 6 survey invitations, you will be upgraded to Silver membership. Once you are a silver member, you get bonus points for each survey you take. Believe me, it doesn’t take much time to get there. I have so far done 22 surveys and am a Gold member.
So to summarize :
1) Create an account with Arab Eye
2) Take Surveys and get points. Remember to go into ‘Update Profile’ and tick the box which says ‘Receive surveys invitations’. When a new survey comes, it will be delivered to your email.
3) Once you reach 50+ points, go to CashU and register yourself for free. Please note that if you keep your account dormant (not accessing it for 120 days or more) then you will lose USD1 per month from then on. I lost USD2 because I forgot to access it when I was in India recently :(. There is also an annual maintenance fee of USD1. By the way, you can fund your CashU account by actually depositing money in it through various money exchanges. Click here to see various ways to fund your account. Arab Eye is just one way of funding it, with your opinions!
4) Click here to see all the sites that accept CashU payment.
5) That’s it guys!.. Yay 🙂
Isnt that so easy!.. Also there are monthly draws at Arab Eye, which entitles you to win a grand prize of USD1000 and many other prizes such as 1000 points or 500 points credited to your account.
Please comment below and let me know whether you were aware of this site or whether you are excited by this news or just about anything!. I highly appreciate your feedback.
Note: This post is completely non-sponsored. I just wanted to share this fabulous info with my lovely followers. That’s all :)… Love you all. Have a beautiful weekend!
NOTE (UPDATED on Aug 20th, 2013)
Hello friends!. Quick update. Arab Eye has moved from arab-eye.com to http://arabeye.yahoo.com/. I have updated all the links in this post. Before you had to just reach 50 points to redeem and get USD1. However, now rules have changed. You need to get a minimum of 250 points to redeem (for USD5). The value the points give you remains the same but the minimum amount to redeem has been raised to 250 or multiples of 250.
Membership levels have been converted to Medals. 1- 4 medals are Bronze members, 5 – 9 are Silver members and 10 – 14 are Gold members. An excellent new introduction to the site is a Purple Badge!. Once you reach your 15th medal, you automatically get 1000 points (equivalent to USD20!). Then it’s reset to 10th medals and each survey after that increases your medal levels.
I have noticed that of late, Arab Eye has not been sending any surveys to the inbox. The only solution that I can suggest is to visit the site occasionally and find out whether any surveys are listed in the home page under ‘Latest Surveys’.
Thank you for your time!
