As kids, we imagined a job as doing fun stuff which we can actually get paid for. All we knew is that the grown-ups in our lives left the house for “work”, disappearing in a mysterious somewhere where we visualized them watching cartoons, playing video games, and eating yummy treats all day. In the background, a smiling boss hovered over them with a wad of cash in hand (which our grown-ups eventually spent on nice things for us in turn).
Boy, that was the dream. Today’s reality too often involves long hours of eyestrain and monotonous routines. If only we can get paid to watch videos, shop online, and play games, right? Well, with GPT websites like FusionCash, it’s possible. But is it totally legit, or too good to be true? Let’s take a closer look.
First things first - what is it?
FusionCash is one of the older GPT sites in existence where members can earn a little extra cash doing different online tasks. These include watching videos, doing some online shopping, completing surveys, playing games, etc. The site has partnered up with businesses in need of market research, which they in turn address via product promotion and sales, survey distribution, and other affiliate solutions.
The website is a serviceable portal for both members and affiliate partners, and doesn’t have the bells and whistles of more recent, gimmicky GPT sites. It’s like it wants to advertise that it’s all about serious business - nothing more, nothing less.
How long has it been around?
Established in 2005, FusionCash is based in California and now boasts having more than three million users across Canada and the USA. I’m inclined to think the numbers have increased somewhat, given the recent popularity of GPT sites among extra income-seekers, but since the website has no counter, I can’t really vouch for it.
Does it pay well?
In their About Us page (which is as no-nonsense and stark as the rest of the site), FusionCash states that since 2005, they have paid their members over $3 million. They’re accredited with the Better Business Bureau, which underlines its legitimacy as an online rewards site.
FusionCash gives its members a couple of options for payouts: via PayPal, direct deposit, or checks. They pay only in dollars. In my opinion, this is a good indication of seriousness to pay members in need of money ASAP, with no virtual currency or gift cards in lieu of real cold, hard cash. Requested cashouts are approved every 20th of the month, and are usually available as payment after a maximum of five working days.
Is registration free?
Signing up is totally free with no fees (registration or maintenance) required. In fact, the simple act of signing up will instantly give a member a $5 sign-up bonus, as long as you have a verifiable email address and are willing to complete a short survey first.
How do I start earning extra income from FusionCash?
There are several options to earn as a member of FusionCash. Some of these options require a credit card, but if you’re uncomfortable with sharing credit card info online (who isn’t?), you can opt out of it and look for the “No CC” icon on offers.
You can try out the mobile apps, games, and videos offered in the menu, but don’t expect to make big bucks with these. Each completed task amounts to a couple of cents at best. Completing trial offers will earn you credit, and you can opt to sign out of them even before the trial period is up so you won’t end up getting spammed.
Some members have mentioned the somewhat frustrating time they have with the surveys. For one thing, there are different providers so members will have to wait for an email confirmation from a provider before even starting on a survey. In short, a waste of time.
What is the best way to earn money from FusionCash?
The referrals system is always a great way to reel in new members for GPT and small-task websites. Just by signing up with them as a new member instantly earns you $5. In turn, referring others and having them sign up can earn you up to $8 per referral (it’s a dollar per successful referral, $2 when the referral completes an offer, and $5 once they cash out)!
Having a group of your friends sign up with different accounts and accomplishing tasks can easily earn you $30 or more without breaking a sweat. So if you’re good at persuading others to join things and try out new stuff, this could be your best money-making method yet for FusionCash.
With its accreditation with the Better Business Bureau and over 12 years of existence, I would venture to say that FusionCash is a legit GPT website. I also like the fact that they use PayPal and direct cash or check deposits for member payouts. Not a lot of other GPT sites nowadays do that.
But for me, an online rewards site should be rewarding, not vexing. With the slow process involved in even accomplishing a survey, FusionCash tasks can become frustrating in the long run. I still think it’s worth a try though, given its steady history of being an online rewards site (and being no-nonsense about it!).
