The number of surveys has slowed down for me recently, but I was still able to get enough today to cash out over there. They now have a new option for a Citibank card(basically like a visa gift card that you can use anywhere) so that's a good option for you if you need it. I chose the Amazon gift card as it's an immediate code I can enter and apply to my account.
I cashed out for $5.50 today and that brings me to a total of just under $75 in my account. I had more in there, but I had to buy a book for my class and my gift card amount ended up letting me keep all my cash so I basically got the book for free(well aside from all my survey answering work).
I'm doing well getting the money I need for my computer armoire. After Ryan and I finish our Gather Race, I'll most likely be able to buy it and start in on the next item on my wishlist!
I love getting little rewards from stuff I do online. I earn the most by far from Gather, but answering a few questions or searching with Swagbucks and getting rewards help pad my Amazon account as well.
