Wouldn’t you love to turn your brilliant and creative ideas into a chance to earn some extra cash?

How about a LOT of money?


There are several companies online that pay you for your ideas, places like, Bounty it and Picky  Domains have all been discussed here at Work at Home Adventures. But one I have not discussed is called Idea Bounty.


Idea Bounty works with top of the line brands (Chevrolet, BMW, Red Bull, Levis etc) to bring fresh ideas and solutions to businesses in exchange for thousands of dollars! Yes, I said THOUSANDS of dollars.


Let’s address one issue right away, is Idea Bounty a scam?   It’s hard to believe a business would pay thousands of dollars for an idea. I was a skeptic as well and therefore searched the web for signs of scams.

Everything I found about Idea Bounty led me right back to believing this is the real deal.

However, the big payout does not come easily. There are thousands of ideas submitted and only one winner. So you better have one BRILLIANT idea!


There are complaints about Idea Bounty though. Some people feel businesses are getting lots of ideas for a cheap rate.

Even if a business pays $10,000 to the best submission, they most likely receive over a thousand of useful ideas. However, the business has agreed to only use the idea they paid for. Some are still concerned they are giving away their ideas for only a slight chance of making any money from it. I understand that.

That is a risk many people, like myself, are willing to take.  I just love that there is even a slight chance I could win enough money to pay off my car just by submitting an idea. I know and expect I most likely would not be chosen, but why not enter?

Need Easy Extra Cash?

Pinecone Research, a leading name in online survey panel honesty, absolutely guarantees $3 cash for every survey you complete!

Anyone can register at Idea Bounty. However, they do not have a lot of projects going on at once.  Currently there is one campaign paying out $3,500! Visiting the site will give you access to reading over the brief of what is needed and if an idea begins stirring, submit!! Or tell me and I will submit ;).

Most likely you will be thinking it over every chance you have, riding to the grocery store, picking your kids up from school, vacuuming- every idea that comes to mind could be a winner!

Visit Idea Bounty and see if you have an idea that could earn you thousands of dollars!

Great video, Miranda. Great information too. It’s nice to know that there is a company that will pay for different ideas verses just have “contests” for the BEST idea.
