Amazon is a marvelous place: where else can you order everything from a lawn mower to a new pair of shoes as well as stream original TV shows and get your groceries delivered straight to your front door? Just to underscore the sheer popularity of Amazon, during the winter holidays last year, 76% of Americans did their online shopping through Amazon.

We get it, people love their Amazon and are shopping up a storm on the site. But did you know that you can actually get rewarded for your love of Amazon? $36 dollars of rewards to be exact, which is just about a third of the cost for an Amazon Prime membership.

ShopTracker, a market research company is paying people for just two minutes of their time a month to share their Amazon shopping experience. That’s basically just free money sitting on the table.

How ShopTracker works

You share your Amazon purchase history with ShopTracker and it then analyzes your purchases. After your initial sign-up, in which you sync your Amazon account with ShopTracker it works automatically in the background, so you don’t have to do anything. Then, to reward you for your service, ShopTracker will send you a monthly $3 Visa e-gift card. Taken together, that’s $36 per year.

And don’t worry about the security of sharing your purchase history.  ShopTracker only takes information on your orders and nothing about your credit card information or Amazon passwords.

How to sign-up for ShopTracker

Signing-up is as easy as downloading the software or app onto your PC desktop, IOS, or Android device (ShopTracker is sadly not yet available for Mac).

Create your ShopTracker profile by entering your name, birth date, street address zip code, and gender. Then, ShopTracker will send you a short series of questions to make sure you are a good fit to be a panelist. The questions are as follows:

1. How often do you shop on Amazon?
2. What kind of Amazon account do you have?
3. Does you household have multiple Amazon accounts? (Of note, each account is eligible for the $3 awards no matter if they are in the same household).

As long as you live in the US, are at least 18 years old, and shop at Amazon with some frequency, you are guaranteed a position as a ShopTracker panelist.

Amazon users, you have no excuse not to sign-up. Why wouldn’t you take up the opportunity to make easy cash with ShopTracker?
