Name: Cash Tasks
Price: Free to join, but then costs to cash out.
Final Rating: 1 out of 10 stars (Red flag, potentially a scam)
I checked out Cash Tasks, experimented with a few of their offers and thoroughly looked into the site. While it is my personal opinion, I will not be recommending it. I believe it can potentially be a scam for a number of reasons I will be explaining in this post.
Cash Tasks in a nutshell:
It’s another one of those rewards type programs where you supposedly get paid to do mundane things like watch videos, answer surveys and even spin some sort of rewards wheel that can earn you more. Within Cash Tasks, you earn points which are then redeemable for money. There is also a referral program available.
Supposedly 1 point = $1. While I didn’t try the site out for as long as I needed to do in order to get paid out ($1,000 minimum!), I had seen enough to make my own personal conclusions on it. I simply don’t trust it.
To make that $1,000 minimum, you’re going to have more time than you can imagine to reach that and I’ll explain why this is the case:
Why I advise against Cash Tasks:
1. Ridiculous payout threshold + you need to register with their premium membership.
First off, there is a $1,000 minimum before you can cash out. I have issues with this for a number of reasons, but the biggest being they don’t tell you unless you look deep into the program OR try to actually cash out. For the sake of experiment when I made my $1 with them, I wanted to see if I would get paid. Here is what it showed me:
Now I’ve experimented with sites like Cash Tasks before with only of them being good. Here is a short list:
- Swagbucks (the only decent one but still not a good money maker).
- Inbox Dollars.
- Instant Rewards Network.
The problem with most of these sites (with the exception of Swagbucks), is that they set a very high threshold which is VERY difficult to get to. In Cash Tasks case, you are provided a lot of initial offers when you become a member (which is free), but as you start to go through the different options, another issue arises which leads me the second point…
2. Some offers take a long time to complete and/or could be shady while others aren’t made available right away.
My first dollar earned through Cash Tasks was by watching a video. After doing so, I was given a message which said I had no more videos to watch today.
Going into the other tasks, I assume this will also happen. I believe they try to limit how much you make to keep you on the site and perhaps further explore the offers they give you (maybe because they are affiliated with them) and with the $1,000 threshold, it’s going to take that much longer to get to the point where you can actually see that money.
I also briefly looked at some of the other offers on the site and have to say I wasn’t surprised but disappointed that some of the stuff I saw I consider to be a waste of time and even a potential scam. They promote some kind of survey sites for which you may have to sign up to and complete surveys to earn money.
I’ve had experience with such places before and have to say it was a colossal waste of time. In fact, I’m just going to say it: I believe “paid” online surveys are a scam. Here is a screenshot of a paid survey site being advertised on Cash Tasks:
3. You need to be a premium member to cash out.
Not only do you have to reach $1,000 but you also have to register with their premium membership to get paid. Here is their pricing chart for that:
But guess what? You won’t find this information in plain sight. You have to look at the terms and conditions. Here it is in their own words:
I underlined the part. If it’s too small to read, basically it just says you need to reach $1,000 + be a premium member to withdraw money.
4. “Questionable” terms of payout.
Ok this is probably one of the most important things that stood out to me. While digging through the terms and conditions, I read very questionable things such as this:
This is a VERY important thing to keep in mind. If they can change their policy or point exchange rate without notice, what else aren’t they telling you?
- Free to join (initially).
- Easy to complete some of the offers.
- Minimum $1,000 need to be made before you can withdraw.
- You need to be a premium member to even see the money.
- Very questionable terms of payout.
- Links to some places I personally wouldn’t want to try (paid survey).
Final Rating: Cash Tasks
Red Flag (Avoid)
1 out of 10 stars. I think it’s a scam and don’t recommend it. If you’re looking to make money online, there is only 1 place I recommend:
My final thoughts:
I’m fairly certain if I dug even deeper, I’d find more reasons to not recommend Cash Tasks, but I think this is more than enough. My biggest issues with this site are the following:
1. Very questionable terms. If they are subject to change without notice and this isn’t explained unless you dig into the site’s policy, how can you trust it?
2. Their payout terms are also questionable in my opinion. $1,000 is a lot of money and in my personal experience in dealing with sites like Cash Tasks, difficult to reach that point because the offers don’t pay much as I said before, there are limits placed to keep you on the site longer.
And to understand all of this, you have to dig deep into the site to find this out, otherwise you’re looking at a lot of work doing the tasks they give you only to find out there’s a catch to getting paid. I do NOT like this method of operation. I find it deceptive and wrong.
These reasons are ultimately why I cannot recommend Cash Tasks. If you have personal experience with, I’d love to hear your story!
