I am always on the look out for new and different ways to make extra money and I have recently discovered 20 Cogs as a way of boosting my income. 20 Cogs is a simple way to make some extra money by completing offers. The offers can be anything from surveys to taking out free trials. There are 20 offers, or cogs to complete (hence the website name) before you can cash out, but it is well worth the wait! Here is my 20 Cogs review.
When you first start out you will only see the first cog – the first offer. If you don't fancy the offer for whatever reason then there are alternatives to choose from. Your cog will then turn amber which means that it is pending. Once the advertiser has checked you have completed the offer successfully then it will turn green. This normally happens quite quickly but it can take up to 45 days to be confirmed.
Simply complete all 20 Cogs and when they have turned green you will see the claim button. You can request your payout via BACS and Paypal and it should arrive within a few days.
There is also a very generous referral scheme at 20 Cogs. Refer your friends and family and you will earn 5% of everything they earn – forever. What's more, when they complete 20 Cogs then you will also get a generous £20 bonus. As you can see from my earnings, I earned a nice chunk from referrals.
My 20 Cogs review
Some of the offers are a complete pain in the backside to complete – they look spammy so I would recommend you use your dedicated money making email address to sign up for the offers and make sure to read them thoroughly so that you aren't registering for websites you don't want to register for. It took me a few months to reach payout because I was waiting for the offers to change – a few of the offers I couldn't complete because I had already done them elsewhere. I finally turned all my 20 Cogs green and my payment was in my bank the morning after I requested it! I would also recommend that you take a screen shot of the completed offers in case it doesn't track properly. I have had to submit a few queries and the 20 Cogs team have ensured that I received the credits I should have.
Websites that rely on you completing a certain number of offers (such as 20 Cogs) have a reputation for holding back and not confirming one of the offers, which is why I would recommend that you not only keep a screen shot of the completed offer, but make sure to see if you need to confirm your email address for any of the offers. The referral scheme is very generous and this could be a nice boost to your funds if you can complete all of the offers.
There you have my 20 Cogs review – in summary, it took me a few months to complete the offers, however once I had turned all of the cogs green, payment was made around 12 hours later.
