Our holiday cash back  series continues with Cash Crate.
Cash Crate  is a cashback site with a twist. In addition to earning cash back you can also earn money trying new products and taking research surveys!
Right now, they’re offering a $1 sign up bonus. A dollar is hardly worth actually calling a sign up bonus, but it is a free dollar, so I guess we can’t complain!
How to Earn Money with CashCrate
- Sign up for a CashCrate  account.
- Earn $1 bonus when you sign up.
- Earn more money by completing surveys, joining websites, shopping online and completing other offers.
- Once you reach $20, you’ll get your payment the following month.
