Instant Cash Sweepstakes – Answering Polls for Small Change

Instant Cash Sweepstakes is one of those fun little sites to visit while you’re taking a break from your “real” work. When your brain is fried from titling, taking calls, or whatever else you do to earn the bulk of your money, you can log in to Instant Cash Sweepstakes and answer fun little polls to win some quick small change.

How much does Instant Cash Sweepstakes pay?

When you log in to answer these short little survey questions, you’ll occasionally win some cash. This amount is small — I think the most I ever got in one session was maybe .13 cents or something like that. There have also been times where I’ve just won a penny. BUT you can play several times per day, and I usually win some change just about every time I play, so it can add up a little if you log in and play as often as you can. In addition to change, you also win lots of coins and tickets. The tickets enter you in to the $50 daily lottery they have every day, and the coins can be converted into lottery tickets to help you up your chances of winning that lottery. They also do a $2 lottery every four hours that you can use your coins to try and win. You will get the coins and tickets more often than you will get the cash.

Do people ever actually win the giveaways?

Yes! I just updated this — September 29, 2013 — because I’ve been a member for years and I finally won the $50 giveaway sometime over the past week. I just logged in out of curiosity expecting to see $2 or $3 in my balance and was shocked to see a little over $50.

When can I get my money from Instant Cash Sweepstakes?

You can have your earnings transferred over to Paypal as long as you have earned a minimum of $2. It might be best to let your money build up a little more than that because Paypal does take a fee out of this amount.

Who is eligible to sign up for Instant Cash Sweepstakes?

People who are eligible to sign up must be at least 18 years old and reside in the United States.

How often can you play?

You can play several times per day, but it’s spaced out a few hours at a time. So if you log in and get six or seven polls to answer, you’ll get a message telling you to come back and play again in two more hours. You can’t play again until that amount of time has passed. The more you play, the more your “TrustScore” will go up, which means you’ll earn more lottery tickets every time you play and get more surveys to answer.

Does Instant Cash Sweepstakes have a referral program?

Yes, they do, and I love it because there’s no cap on how much you can earn from your referrals. Every time someone who has signed up under you wins a cash prize, lottery tickets, or the $2 lottery, you win a matching cash prize, and this will continue indefinitely no matter how much your referrals win.

Is Instant Cash Sweepstakes a scam?

No. From what I have gathered, they pay as they are supposed to. It’s a pretty popular site, and lots of people earn money and cash out successfully on a daily basis. I admit that I haven’t bothered with it enough yet to cash out, but my account balance is climbing, and as soon as I hit the $2 mark I’m going to go ahead and request it so I can show my Paypal payment proof to you.

You can become a Pro member of Instant Cash Sweepstakes the more you play.

Being a Pro member means getting invited to do video surveys and earn actual dollars rather than small change. I have been invited to become a Pro member, but I didn’t do it because it seemed like a lot of trouble for me to drag out the video camera and film myself answering survey questions, and then upload it to ICS. I just didn’t want to do it. Not sure I’ll ever sign up for that part really.

I recently cashed out (not much, just $3) and I wanted to show you that they do pay. Here’s the payment proof. I received it in Paypal the same night I requested it:

If you want to try out Instant Cash Sweepstakes, you can sign up here.

Like I said before, this is a fun little “side egg” to have around for when you’re bored or taking a break from your real work. And if you play several times a day, the amount you earn can definitely begin to add up. Participating in each set of polls doesn’t take long at all, probably less than five minutes at a time, so it’s definitely worth it in my opinion.

    I haven’t tried this one. Instead, I’ve been doing NPolls on which you earn per polls and when you reach the payout rate then it goes to your PayPal account.

    You wouldn’t earn much answering polls yet it’s a brief break from your other tasks. After some time, you’ll realize that it’s time to reap the reward from a simple task that doesn’t take much of time.

    I used to do this. I had won big once! 50 cents! 😉 But you are right, it adds up and it is kind of fun. I should go back and start again as well. Nice little break from titling!
