You Cubez was founded in 2007 and it’s one of the many ways that you can make money online, particularly by watching videos, taking surveys or even completing tasks. They have close to 1,000,000 members and have sent out 20,000+ payments. In my research, the stats are okay, nothing special and You-Cubez really isn’t a household name. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t join, however, as there are a lot of unknowns that pay quite well.
And, as you’re probably well aware, there are a lot of these sites online, so the question is if it’s worth your time.
You will never make a ton of money with these sites, however, if you’re happy making $5 or $10 a day, then it could be something to consider.
In today’s review, I cover how You-Cubez works as well as walk you through the steps of how you can make money. As always, 100% honest.
Making Money with You-Cubez
On the site, there are a variety of ways to earn, namely viewing sponsored ads and your typical offerwalls. What makes You-Cubez different, however, is that people advertise with them and then pay you to view their ads. This is the main reason people come to the site to make money.
I will explain how each method works below.
#1 Viewing Ads
This is as simple as it sounds. You’re going to click on an ad, usually which is a referral link from another member on the site and you will get rewarded.
Most of what you see will take you seconds to click on and get rewarded; however, it doesn’t pay much, as you can see. Each ad will only pay you about £0.0005. To put it in perspective, you will have to click on 2,000 ads to make £1. That’s a lot of clicking.
Don’t expect much in terms of advertisements, maybe a few a day at most, so it’s going to take you a long time to reach a decent amount. This section isn’t worth your time.
The adBoard reminds me a lot like the million dollar page back in the day, when someone allowed companies to advertise something on a “pixel.”
In this section, anyone can purchase a cube and whenever you click on it, you will get rewarded, usually about £1 in CUBE FUNDS for every 30 you click. Keep in mind that this is for cube funds, not cash.
So, what are cube funds, exactly?
These are cubes that you can “own” and then sell on the site if you wish or you can keep one if you want to advertise something, such as a referral link from another site, etc. Every cube has a certain value, and the more it’s worth, the higher it will rank on the page. Whenever you earn these cube funds, you can add them to a cube, effectively increasing its value. Simply put, cube funds buy cubes and increase the value. The more it’s worth, the higher it ranks on that site seen above. Do keep in mind that there are almost 150+ pages of cubes, so your cube, at least in the beginning, will be buried.
Like the ads section mentioned prior, this is a lot of work for almost nothing, seeing most cubes sell for £0.50 to £2 at most. For example, a £6,080 cube was up for sale for £3.04 in funds.
If you earn £1 for every 30 clicks, then that means you would have to click on a cube 182,400 times to earn £3.04, at least according to what’s for sale. Think about that one for a second. That’s a lot of clicking for peanuts and it’s definitely not worth your time. However, you can ask for anything, but you need to find a buyer. Just remember that in case you are interested.
#3 Offer walls
And, like the so many money making sites I have reviewed, You-Cubez also works with a few offer walls, particularly Peanut Labs, Persona.ly, OfferToro, KiwiWall and Adscend Media. All of these offer walls can be found on other sites and I would highly advise that if you use these offer walls you compare rates amongst the competitors since they can choose what they want to pay you. In my experience, I have found that Swagbucks and Superpay.me tend to pay the most, but this isn’t always the case.
Anyways, if you are interested in these offer walls, they offer a few ways to earn money, mostly surveys and “offers.” Just follow the prompts and you can earn what’s specified by You-Cubez. It’s fairly straight-forward, and if you complete the right offers, it can pay off.
When I looked at the rates, most paid in “Cube Funds,” which, as I already mentioned, isn’t worth all that much. Again, if you wanted to sign up and complete the offer walls, I would advise against it.
You-Cubez offers a few ways you can earn money.
For one, your “earnings” can be cashed out via PayPal and you will need at least £8 to cash out or £4 if you have a premium account. Premium+ members only need £2. Aside from PayPal, you can choose from a few cryptocurrency options, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple & Dogecoin, if you choose.
The “A/C” balance can only be used to purchase items on the site such as membership upgrades or advertising.
Lastly, cube funds, as mentioned, can only be used to increase a cube’s value. However, you can eventually sell your cube on the auction board, which will then be added to your earnings.
After you request a payout, it can take up to 14+ days to receive your payout, which is well above the industry standard.
If you do want to create an account, then you can do so relatively quickly. What you see below is what they will ask of you when you sign up.
All they ask for is your email, name as well as a few other simple demographic pieces of information, as seen above in the screenshot. This is standard in the industry.
What’s different when you sign up, though, is that they ask if you want to upgrade to an optional “premium membership” for £5.
With this premium membership, your minimum payouts start at £4 and you can receive a variety of other benefits, including cheaper advertising, free URL updates and £5 in advertising spend.
Unless you plan on advertising some sort of website/app, etc, then I don’t find much value in this premium membership.
The website is open to everyone 18+ worldwide.
- decent advertising potential
- available worldwide
- earnings are extremely low
- not a lot of ways to earn
- need at least £8 to cash out on a free account (will take a while)
- 14 days to receive payout
You-Cubez is different in that they allow you to advertise a referral link or website, etc if you so choose. If you want to advertise something to an audience looking to make money, then there could be some value in it.
However, if you want to earn money on this site, then I would say skip it. The clicking on cubes and ads pay nothing and it would take you FOREVER to earn just a dollar or so. Also, many of the offer walls pay out in cube funds, which seem to be worthless. This isn’t worth your time, seeing the payouts start at £8. That’s going to take you a long time.
In the end, there’s nothing much going on here. While it’s a legitimate website, it seems, I can see why it’s not popular.
If you want to earn money taking surveys and/or offers, it can be done, but I would recommend many other sites over this one.
That’s going to do it for now.
