LEGIT Earn Cash Donating Plasma

This is not a work at home per-say but it is along the medical lines. I earn cash monthly donating plasma twice a week at my local plasma center. They follow very strict rules and guidelines but it is possible to make up to $305 per month with them. The company gives you a physical, draws your blood to test for drugs and certain diseases during your first visit. You have to fill out a medical history and answer several predetermined questions regarding any medications you take and they even question if you have lived in certain areas of the world before letting you donate. If you pass this screen and are able to donate the process flows pretty simply.

Each time you go in to donate plasma you answer a 26 question survey on a computer kiosk. After you answer the questions you are called back to have your blood pressure, temperature, pulse, and blood checked. Your blood pressure and pulse and temperature all have to be in normal ranges. Your blood has to have a high enough iron level in it to safely donate and it cannot have too much fat in it. Meaning, don't eat a huge meal of burger and fries before going to donate plasma. If you pass all of these requirements on that day they will let you donate plasma. The plasma donating process (when they hook you up on the machine) takes about 45 minutes if there are no problems.

This is the pay scale at the clinic I donate at:

$20 first donation of a given month (ex: August)
$30 second donation of the same month
$25 third donation of the same month
$35 fourth donation of the same month
$45 each time after this

The key to this is that they only allow you to donate 2 times per every 7 days. Most people who donate set a schedule and donate on certain days of the week. My days are always on Tuesday and Thursday.

In my area, if you are a new donor you get $75 the first three times you come. I loved this!

Have you ever donated plasma?

Is there an age limit for this as I am older and would worry about donating twice a week? I have donated blood before without a problem but that's only occasionally.

I did not see any age limit requirements but there are health requirements you have to pass. You cannot be on certain medications and you cannot have high blood pressure, low platelet counts, iron deficiency and things of that nature. Every time you come in they check your iron levels, blood pressure, pulse, platelet levels, fatty content of your blood and temperature.

I'm not on any medication and my blood pressure is normal. I have very good health for my age. I recently had a full blood count because I had a worrying lump in my neck (it was nothing and disappeared) and everything was good. Maybe I could do it.

It sounds as if you could. Give it a try. I must admit that on the days when I do it I feel tired afterward. I normally make something very easy in the crock pot for supper on those days. I did have a schedule of Tuesday and Thursdays but I switched it to Tuesdays and Fridays to give me more time to recover in between days. That seems to work better for me.

Im on too many medications and have many medical issues, so I wouldnt even try this, they would probably laugh at me and say thanks but no thanks!
If you often feel bad its best that you don't donate. It will leave you feeling very tired after donating. At least it does me on most donation days.

To be honest I dont even know what blood type I am, which is probably not smart. I keep telling myself next time your at the doctors ask them! And then I forget

We don't get anything in Denmark if we donate plasma neither cash or candy. I wish I could get $45 every time I donate here just like you.
Well, it's not $45 every time but the last 4 times per month is $45. I tell you it is a saving grace when things get tight here at home. I am sorry your country does not offer this option.

I know what you mean. You don't have to know your blood type to donate. :)

I have never heard of this in my country. It sounds like a good way to earn some extra cash while donating. I think I would fitted there so well. I don't have any medical conditions and I am not taking any drugs.

It is a very good way to earn extra cash if you are healthy enough. I am not taking any medications so I cannot be specific on what they don't allow. I never really paid any attention to them since I don't take anything.

I use to donate plasma and the money was pretty good you gotta be very healthy the slightest thing can get you denied and have patience because the initial sign up takes at least 3 to 4 hrs but I enjoyed knowing I was doing a good deed and getting paid as well I would recommend this to anyone who isn't afraid of needles lol

Thanks for the reply. It is fairly simple most of the time. You are right about the initial signup when they have to give you the physical and such but it is well worth it.

I think donating Plasma is a noble thing to do. Yes, you get paid, but I think the help you're providing is more valuable than what they pay you. I am not complaining; I think it's great that you can provide a service.
