Cash Crate Review


Product: Survey and Offer Company

Price: Free

Owner: Joe Coleman ( Cashcrate Joe )

Suitable for: Anyone like taking paid survey and take part in offers.

Overview: A Survey and Offer Company started by Joe Coleman ( CashCrate Joe ) in 2006 and has since rewarded $Millions to Members of Cash Crate who took part in the Surveys and/or sign up with 3rd Party trial offers. However, there are conflicting views and experiences of members of Cash Crate.

Cash Crate Review – How to join?

Cash Crate Review - LogoI have signed up Cash Crate many months back and I totally forgot about it. 🙂

The reason is that I did not receive emails to fill up Surveys or sign up trial offers from Cash Crate at all!

I am not sure why, perhaps I did not verify my account with them?

Anyway, I revisited Cash Crate because I heard someone could earn hundreds from it. I want to sign up a new account but was notified my email entered has already been used. Who else, but myself. Lol.

It is very simple to sign up with Cash Crate and it is free. All you need is to enter your email address and your desired password twice. Once you signed up, you are rewarded $1.00 straight away.


Cash Crate Review – What can you do there?

Let’s take a look at the activities you can participate at Cash Crate to earn money Online.

Cash Crate Review - Ways to Earn

Honestly, I liked Cash Crate’s many ways to earn money compare to other Survey Companies that I had previously joined such as YouGov and MySurvey.

Although there are many ways to earn money at Cash Crate, but you may not participate in all of them.

I am really pleased that Cash Crate is honest upfront by placing a Disclaimer note visible to everyone at the home page.

Cash Crate Review - Discalimer

This means that although many people from all sort of different backgrounds, age, living lifestyle and where do they stay  etc. are possible to join its panel of members, not everyone has an equal chance to participate in all the surveys or trial offers.

This is because Cash Crate’s associates’ or corporate clients’ requirements may target specific individuals base on the personal details you submit during registration.

Most of the time,  “Qualifying” questions are asked before a survey to check if you qualify.

In this way, they will have a targeted group of people which they can get meaningful results from their surveys.

However, if you wish to take the survey as your full-time income, there is a strategy you could apply.

There is even a Check Gallery where members could post a photo of the check they have just received. This is a way to show that Cash Crate do really payout to their members and gives confidence for new members to sign up.

Cash Crate Review – My Personal Take

Taking surveys and signing up trials are easy jobs that do not require professional skills.

You should not expect to earn a lot just by doing these because some surveys take 20mins to fill in but pay cents!

Moreover, you have to ask yourself whether what is the effort/reward ratio that you are willing to invest in.

To try Cash Crate, I filled up a survey at Cash Crate and took me about 20mins to complete. The reward was $3.50, and this was one of the few higher paying surveys I had chosen.

I was disqualified for 2 surveys too due to profile not matching. For both of the disqualified surveys, I spent a total of about 5 minutes to answer the qualifying questions. So effectively, 5mins of my time for $0.00.

Personally, I do not really like the fact that the rewards are so little compared to my effort and time invested filling up the surveys.

You can give Cash Crate a test run here to see if you really like taking Surveys.

To achieve my goal of Financial Freedom, I am all out for an alternative.

Cash Crate Review – Final Verdict

Cash Crate
Joe Coleman
Overall Rating: 3.5 / 5.0

I rated Cash Crate 3.5 stars because it is a legitimate Survey Company that payouts on its terms.

However, you should know that the payout of filling surveys takes time and some of the payouts are quite little. You may require to signing up with many survey companies to have a higher chance of qualifying more surveys. Some strategies may be needed.

Personally, to achieve a Passive Online Income, I started an Affiliate Marketing Business.

    Very interesting. I was wondering about the customer reviews – they all seem very negative, only 25%, why is it that you have given it a much higher rating? Can you get more out of it by using it in a specific way? I’d love your feedback on this.

    All the best,


    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Dave, thank you for your comment.

      Yes, you are right, the comments at are mostly negative. If you go through the comments, you could see that most people expects to be able to fill in all and any kind of surveys available.

      The truth is, the Cash Crate’s disclaimer said quite the opposite right at its home page. People have to understand that it is impossible to fit all surveys to all people due to demographic and geographical location differences.

      I gave Cash Crate a good rating because it has shown proof of payment to its members. It is honest in paying out to its honest members on its term. I would recommend answer each survey with honesty and do not try to beat the system. In this way, you’ll definitely get more out of it.

      Having said that, as I mentioned, the reward of filling surveys may not worth the time invested. Answering the qualifying questions takes time too. I would prefer Affiliate Marketing model for my Passive Online Income.

      Wishing you the best too!

    People must have raised eyebrows when they read that millions of bucks are rewarded to members.

    Experience matter in this industry particularly wise. I must say, setting up an account is one thing a visitor must aware.

    What I’m saying is, it’s fine to give your email address and password but if there’s bank account? Sounds dodgy. Just saying.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Tar! Thanks for your comment.

      Indeed, millions of bucks are rewarded to members sounds enticing to many. However, filling out surveys and completing tasks are simple and may not require much experience.

      It is normal for survey companies to ask for email address and passwords. It is also recommended to use Paypal to receive your payment or via check.

      Cash create mostly pay their members via check. You can see from the Magan’s proof of payment.

      Wishing you the best!

    Thanks for the great review, Edmund.

    Cash Crate sounds like a very handy place to earn a little cash, and it doesn’t sound bad, I think I’ll register today and start trying. I don’t really want to spend all day & every day just to answer the surveys, but it is possible, right?

    I have tried some surveys before and upon answering questions I find myself being very “honest”, and I do enjoy sometimes.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Ray, you are most welcome!

      Yes, you could choose when you want to take the surveys or perform any tasks at Cash Crate. Try it and hopefully, you could come back here again and share your experience with us. 🙂

      Wishing you the best!

    Hey Edmund!

    I have participated in other surveys companies before and I know what you are saying when you mentioned that surveys companies require matching demographics to fill in their surveys.

    Filling in the qualifying questions takes up time and worst you are not qualified to complete the surveys. Quite discouraging to continue if it happens too many times.

    I really hope Cash Crate will, at least, have a pre-filter where members will key in detailed demographics information. This will save up loads of members’ time to fill in those qualifying questions.

    Thanks for this review of Cash Crate!

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hey Kim!

      I agree with you totally! In fact, YouGov, another survey company I participated previously does that.
      Whenever I receive an email from YouGov that I have a new survey, I always able to complete the survey and earn my rewards. This results in better time/reward ratio for the members.

      Thanks for your input and wishing you the best!

    Hi, Edmund.

    These sorts of reward sites always end up in the same crate I’m afraid (excuse the pun!). They are legit…for the most part, but there never seems to be enough opportuntiy there. By opportuntiy I mean a chance to earn really decent money! You can earn a couple a dollars a day but no more. What do you think about this?

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi, Chris.

      You are absolutely right! Filling up surveys allows you earn some small change but not really decent enough to be financially free.

      Having said that, there are people working full time filling up surveys. Their strategy is to sign up as many survey companies they can find.

      To earn passive income Online (decent money), I prefer Affiliate Marketing. I highly recommend you to learn from Wealthy Affiliate’s Free* Online Entrepreneur Certification course.

      Wishing you the best!

    Hello Edmund,

    Thanks for the detailed review on cash crate! I’ve never been a fan of surveys simply because it takes a long time and a lot of work for very small payouts.

    I mean, I don’t expect to make beyond sandwich money from cash crate.

    My friend has been using them for a month now and made like $10.00, so he referred me, but I wanted to see what other people think about this service.

    Thanks again for your detailed review,

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hello, Eric.

      Yup, do not expect to make a lot of money from surveys, not really worth the time in my personal opinion too.
      There are many ways to make money Online, such as Affiliate Marketing. However, there are no Get Rich Quick method.

      You are most welcome! I am glad that this Cash Crate review is useful.
