I have discovered another easy way for you to get some FREE merchandise to sell and it’s ridiculously easy.

I subscribe to several websites that I either take surveys for, or simply visit other websites and earn points.

You also can earn points by going through the website when you shop online.  One of my favorites is called myPoints (www.mypoints.com) There are even apps you can use, such as Viggle. You earn points for opening the app on your smartphone, clicking the app and then watching TV and earning points which you can then redeem for gift cards.

Another popular app is ShopKick.  With ShopKick, you “check in” at stores where  you are shopping and can earn points.  You can accrue more points by showing the cashier your Smartphone at the register when you make a purchase at the store.  These websites and apps are super easy to use.

Once I have accumulated enough points from one of these websites or apps, I can cash them in for gift cards at  just about every store imaginable.

Most of these sites have a very large selection of gift cards to choose from.  I just recently redeemed enough points for a $25.00 gift card to TJ Maxx, which is a great store to find inventory to resell.

This essentially means you get $25.00 (free) to spend at the store to find stuff to resell.  Every penny (other than eBay and PayPal fees) is PROFIT.  Hit the clearance racks at the store and you could easily come home with several BRAND NEW or NWT items to sell.  And it’s easy!  You can earn bigger gift cards too, just depends on how fast you earn points.

A couple of times a month I earn enough from these sites and apps to get free gift cards and free inventory to sell on eBay or Amazon.  Some months I have earned over $200.00 in free gift cards just by shopping through or visiting these websites and/or apps.

And with that $200.00+, I have turned that into well over $400.00 in profit.

Try it!  Get the apps above, settle down on the couch and watch some TV–remember, your working!

How’s that for passive income?

No,this is not a plug for a Rich Dad Poor Dad seminar. I’ve never been to one and likely never will. I haven’t even read all his books. But I do know Robert Kiyosaki believes assets are dead expenses, unless they are working for you.

I’m starting to evaluate practically everything I own as to its value as a possession versus converting it to cash. I’m finding the cash is often more important, because it works for me. I use it to buy more product to resell on eBay, and with continued reinvestment I’m now managing over 60 auctions with virtually none of my own bank money invested. It’s a good place to be, and a goal we should all have.

A good example is a Kate Spade purse I recently purchased from the eBay Fashion site. They were having a 48 hour sale, and I didn’t make the buy until the last day when the selection wasn’t the greatest. Still, I liked the purse and it was only $168 with free shipping, regularly over $400.

I still wasn’t sure when I received if it I liked it. I started thinking about what I’d do with that $168 if I had it back, and maybe a little more with an eBay flip. I decided I’d rather have the cash for reinvestment, and put it up for auction. Here’s what happened:

Not a home run with a 45% profit after eBay expenses, but I got my money back plus another $50 I didn’t have two weeks ago, and that cost me nothing. Now instead of $168 to reinvest, I have about $220. What’s 45% markup on $220?  About $100, or double my original profit.

That kind of math can make your head spin, and it should, because the profit increases exponentially as the sales dollars increase. And that’s calculated at only 45% profit–my average is much higher.

Will you take a new look at those household goods and accessories now?  I know I am!  Cash verses stuff. Cash is winning more and more.

Speaking of easy money, have you seen this?  LOL!  Now that’s just being lazy– but to get paid for it??
