Making Money With RedGage

by PotPieGirl on July 14, 2009 · 19 comments

I Got Paid By RedGage!

Since I introduced the Redgage social bookmarking site on June 11th we sure have gotten all fired up over this new site that PAYS YOU to submit links to your own online content.  When I posted the video about how to make money with Redgage, I added in the comment section that I requested my first payment from Redgage and would let you know when I received it.  Well, it’s here!  Took a little less than two weeks and I got my RedGage Visa debit card in the mail!

How To Get Paid By RedGage

Once you reach $25, you can request a payment from RedGage.  Simply go to your account and click account at the top left.  Then, click “balance” and select the amount you’d like to withdraw.

Your first payment from RedGage will come as a Visa gift card that you can use like a Visa credit card anywhere Visa is accepted. All future payments from RedGage will be added to that gift card – so don’t throw it away!

While it takes about 2 weeks to get your initial gift card, it only takes a few hours for future payments to be loaded to your Visa card.

Pretty nifty!  I sure love me some free money!

Getting My RedGage Visa Card In The Mail

I actually got my RedGage Visa card in the mail last Thursday, but since the hubby and I were running away to the mountains this past weekend, I didn’t have a moment to get this post up for y’all.

Here is a picture taken with my trusty cell phone of my RedGage payment


And here’s a shot of my Redgage Visa card!


Once you get the card, they give you a url to go to so you can activate your card.  I had a “Duh Jen” moment when trying to validate my card and had to email Redgage to get some help.

Here’s a hint about activating your RedGage Visa card: Think your phone number.  They will ask for 4 digits…. the ones they give you will be the starting part of the phone number you gave when you signed up for Redgage…so just fill in the blanks with the ending 4 digits.

You can also visit that same site to check the balance remaining on your card at any time.

I’m Lovin’ RedGage!

I’m almost at $100 earned from the Redgage bookmarking site…and I’m lovin’ it!  This is seriously a site you should check out if you’d like another way to a) earn money online, and b) get links and exposure for your content online.

Join me at Redgage thru this link and we’ll automatically be “friends” on the site!

Anyone else get paid yet?

Please share!

Thank you for this opportunity! I will surely check it! I hope it works for people from Serbia!

Hi Jennifer, do you know if RedGage works with non english bookmarks? I hope so, I will try it now.

Hey Jennifer!

Thanks for the tip about Redgage. I joined yesterday morning as soon as I read your post, and a few hours later I had already earned a penny! lol! Like you said, don’t quit your day job, but it all adds up. I can see that with a bunch more posts, a person could start earning some cash.

Hi PotPieGirl,

Unfortunately, I’m having problems logging into Redgage. Doesn’t like the activation code and password for some reason. I requested a new password to see if that was the problem, but that one ain’t working either. Ah well. I’ve sent RedGage to find out what’s going on. (p.s.: Strange thing is I’ve received an email confirming I’m on your friends’ list.)

take care…

I signed up for Redgage about two weeks ago. Unfortunately, it’s importing tool has been “temporarily” out of service since then. I uploaded some photos, for which I’ve made 7 cents so far, but I don’t think I can give them much of my already-created content (such as from my blogs) until this is fixed. Are you and others also finding the Redgage importing tool to be out of service now?

I have tried for 2 hours to sign up on Redgage. But all I see highlighted “Download” but the page does not move.
I am too tired to fight it any more tonight as it is after midnight. :) going to look to see if you show us how to make it work. Good night Jennifer and I do appreciate you very much!

Thanks for the advice. I expect the baby for a month, and these days are very annoying and this is the ideal opportunity for me to complete my time and earn some money.

I just joined yesterday and am loving it! Thanks for sharing this.

Loved the article. Great inspiration. I just joined redgage yesterday. Hoping for similar success.

I hadn’t really considered checking it out but I like the idea of the debit card. Clever move by the Redgage team.

Please keep posting if your earnings explode. ;)

Do you or anyone else know if you can have more than one RedGage Account?

I would like different ones for the different types of links (i.e.- biz opps, arts and crafts, education, etc.).

It just seems weird to have to post links for various categories into one account.

Yolanda July 20, 2009 at 4:58 am

Thank you! I came across your blog and read up on RedGage which I am a member of. I havebeen registered for 3 weeks and had only made 3 cents. Used your advice and same day went up to $4.50!! Yeah!!

I just read up on your RedGage posts to learn more about it. Sounds interesting but do their links count for anything? I did a backlink check on this blog and none are showing up from RedGage. Wouldn’t be surprised if Google ignores it for being a link farm. Have you seen backlinks from it for any other sites? Thanks for the info!

Ron Passfield July 25, 2009 at 10:58 pm

Hi Jennifer – loved your post. I just won a $50 daily prize and my earnings from a month on RedGage are $83. I really appreciate your introducing me to this site. I am promoting my Squidoo lenses on RedGage and finding people are linking back to me on Squidoo and joining my fan club, leaving comments and subscribing to my RedGage posts. All in all, a very strong social bookmarking effect and RedGage pays me for the backlinks they create for me! I have just created a video that shows the three ways to earn on RedGage:

This is great. You are very thorough. Thank you for this information.

MsFit August 9, 2009 at 12:38 am

It sounds really good, I’ll have to check it out.
Thanks and congrats on your payment (:

ERyc November 26, 2009 at 6:44 am

Hi Jennifer, I’m in but what’s the catch? Is RedGage gonna use my content and links for some nefarious purpose? Where do they get the money that they pay us? Advertising is my first suspect but I don’t see much of that on the site.

I just got my Visa card today and was about to pull my hair out figuring out my activation code. I didn’t even recognize that the numbers were the first part of my phone number – talk about a DUH moment! Anyhow, THANK YOU for posting this (and also for leading me to Redgage in the first place)!
