If you don't have .edu ID, create one. See comments below on how to. And before you start jumping, note that this method became viral yesterday on Reddit. (view it here) MindSumo.com is a place where you get money for solving interesting real-world problems. (No need to solve. Just propose feasible solutions) Win $50-500 per challenge. Most of the problems aren't even hard. Plus there's less competition among participants; easy money. Winning probability of challenges = 10/40 [this is because they take only 40 entries per challenge and award 10 participants among those 40] Most challenges have 5 winners who win $150 each, and then 5 honors who win $50 each. Since this is a startup, it's not that hard to become one of those 10. You'll see Get $5 (with promo code: HOWARD) + $30 bonus when signing up. Verify your .edu email after signing up. After you sign up with promo code, you'll have $35. Solve 1st challenge and receive $25, will take half an hour at max. Link your LinkedIn account for $5 more. You'll now have $65. Then solve challenges, cash out through PayPal. Enjoy! Initial cashout amount is $100. After that, you can cash out at every $5. Note: You DO need a .edu email address to sign up since MindSumo is for students or those affiliated with educational institutions. When you use promo code HOWARD, you get $5 and I get $1. And no MindSumo is not mine. Questions? Post below and I will answer.
