Instant Cash Sweepstakes may have a cheesy name, but it's actually a pretty great website. All you do is answer short (3-question) user-created surveys (you will also answer occasional business surveys which may be slightly longer) and you earn a few cents, tickets for their daily $50 drawing, and/or coins that can be exchanged for more tickets the daily $50 drawing or entered in a $2 drawing that is held every 4 hours. Simple, fun, and you can even write surveys!
You can answer your survey set every 3 hours. Most people should have no trouble playing 3-4 times per day. I draw the line at waking myself up the middle of the night, but if that's something you want to do, suit yourself!
As you answer surveys, your "Trust Level" goes up. They will periodically throw in questions about the state you live in, or other facts that are on your profile to make sure you aren't randomly filling in answers. Always answer truthfully, and your Trust Level will go up, giving you bonus tickets and coins, and letting you answer more surveys per session!
You are provided with a referral link, and you can also get a widget to use on your blog or website. Paste the link on your Facebook, Twitter, or email your friends and family. You earn 100% cash, coins, and tickets that your referrals earn (except for the $2 drawing and the written survey prize.)
You can write a survey on any topic you'd like. They are fun to write and you get 100 tickets just for writing it! Other users will answer your survey and can rate it from 1-5. Awards are given for the best rated surveys!
Your coins never expire, and you can enter them in either the daily $50 drawing or the every-4-hours $2 drawing. I usually save mine up for a few days, then dump them all in the $2 drawing.
Another great thing about ICS is their cash-out is only $2, and they pay with Paypal. There are no ads or spam on the site, you never have to "qualify" for a survey, and it has a very easy-to-use interface.
