Mine2Coin Review - Is A Scam or Legit?

Mine2Coin Review 

This will be a review of  Mine2Coin, which is a software you can download for windows and mac to mine BitCoin. But is Mine2Coin legit? Read Living Cheapy's complete review of this company and decide for yourself.

Mine2Coin Review - Is A Scam or Legit?

What Is is a BitCoin Mining software that is available worldwide. So regardless of where you are from you can use this Bitcoin Mining software. You only need to have a PC or Mac Computer to download the Mine2Coin software and run it.  

Is Mine2Coin Legit Or A Scam?

Mine2Coin is not a scam and you really can earn BitCoin mining with this software. However, that does not mean you actually end making money with this software is very questionable. More on that later. 

How does Mine2Coin Work?

To mine bitcoins with  Mine2Coin you just have to start the program and start mining with a click of a button. They claim Free Satoshi will be credited on your bitcoin wallet every Friday. I agree with this statement other than the word  "Free" being included in the statement. In order to use this software, you have to use your CPU and/or GPU power.  

mine2coin mining speed

Of course, this makes running Mine2coin not free giving the wear and tear on your expensive hardware. Not to mention the electric you will be using in the process.  

How To Use Mine2Coin?

mine2coin real time data

The program is overall easy to use. They even give you Dashboard that gives you a real-time data like your current mining speed hash rate and all transactions (old/upcoming). I was surprised to find that you did not even need to register to use the program. You Just have to enter your bitcoins address. Then choose how much CPU and/or GPU power you want to allocate for mining and click "Start Mining".  After clicking the button your will then see displayed estimated satoshi earnings for the day. 

Mine2Coin Referral Code

Mine2Coin interestingly has a referral program. They give you a 10% satoshis bonus of what your friends and family earn if refer them to the program.  The way you refer people to this program is a little different from other referral programs I have been a part of.  You actually create your link yourself by entering your Bitcoin wallet address and clicking the "Generate" button on their site.

After doing so you will receive your referral link. If you would like to support Living Cheaply please use our link below. Whether you use the link or not we Thank You for being a valued reader.

Scam Verdict is a legit BitCoin mining software. With that said I find it hard to recommend the software giving the electricity you will be billed for due to running your computer will most likely be more than the satoshis, you earn running the program. But say if your in a situation that your electric is included in your rent. Mine2Coin may actually work out for you. Still, do not expect to make anything of note. The wear and tear on your hardware may still end up costing you more than what you earn. 

Living Cheaply would love to hear about your experience with Mine2Coin in the comments below. Have you used this site in the past? Did you feel like is legit? Please let us know, we would love to hear feedback on this review.

Big Spot Survey Review - Is Scam Or Legit?

No comments

Big Spot Survey Review 

This will be a review of  Big Spot Survey, which claims to be a paid survey site. You likely found yourself here after seeing advertised on Tv or the internetIf so go ahead and pat yourself on the back for being wise enough for doing your research before giving away your personal information. But the question remains is Big Spot Survey legit? Read Living Cheapy's complete review of this company and decide for yourself. 

Big Spot Survey Review

What Is is a free to join a site that connects you to surveys. However do not actually offer any surveys themselves. Any survey you may do on Big Spot will be done on a 3rd party website that is not associated with in any way.  

Is Big Spot Survey Legit Or A Scam?

In one sense, is a legit site, however, in an another sense, they are a scam. What I mean by this is they do all the things they say the do, and maybe more. BUT, they use very carefully worded advertising that gives you the impression they are something they are not. For instance, they make them selfs sound like a survey company right? Well, they aren't actually. Big Spot Survey is just basically a survey portal site, that only connects you to actual survey sites that pay you. never pays anyone for anything. They also state they never give away your information without your permission. Which is true BUT in order to take advantage of their service of connecting you to any surveys, they ask for permission to give away your data. In my mind even though this is not technically a scam. In most people's minds, this gross misrepresentation of what Big Spot Survey is would indeed be recognized as being such. 

How does Big Spot Survey Work?

To get started with Big Spot Survey you will go to and fill out a short form requesting your Email, Date of Birth, Gender, Ethnicity, and Country

Big Spot Survey Legit or Scam?

After you enter your information and click on "Join Now" you will then see a page with a list of survey sites. In my case when I joined I was given a list of 3 sites

Including: I Say, GlobalTestMarket, and Toluna survey panels

All three of these sites are completely aboveboard and are well know survey sites that have been around for some time. With that said I was quite disappointed with this list given I was already a member of two of these survey panels and the other I knew about just had not joined. I guess if you have never heard of any of these survey panels maybe this connection could be useful to you. With that said they could just have easily made a site with one paragraph post stating these are neat survey sites that you should join and give you the 3 links. And if they did that I would be completely ok with Big Spot. But making this super hyped up site instead, only to give you next to no value makes you feel betrayed and lied to. 

Big Spot Survey Scam Verdict 

Although I would never recommend this site to anyone, mainly because the site offers almost no value to its users. Big Spot Survey site is technical a legit site so don't freak out if you have already signed up for this site. I assure you will be fine. 

Tip: If you did join this site I do hope you used a secondary web address made specifically for money making sites. Honestly, there is no such thing as a paid survey site that does not spam your email.

With that site I still would not waste your time joining giving the value of this site can be summarized in 3 words I SayGlobalTestMarket, and Toluna.  Big Spot is likely getting a referral commission on top of the revenue they are getting with your info. Referring people to sites you use yourself is fine in my book, so I am not knocking that. But Big spot should be upfront about what they are doing. 

Living Cheaply would love to hear about your experience with Big Spot Survey in the comments below. Have you used this site in the past? Did you feel like is legit? Please let us know, we would love to hear feedback on this review.

Top 4 Cosmetic Brands - Affordable & Organic Beauty

No comments

Affordable Cosmetic brands 

What is your skin eating? Seriously, do you even know? When we think about our health we tend to focus more on what we put into our body not what we put ON our body. Our skin is the largest organ of our body and the biggest entry for toxins to enter into the body, and yet often the last thing we think of when it comes to our health. Our skin absorbs about 60 PERCENT of any topical product that we use and as women, that's huge because we are constantly applying and reapplying products throughout the day. The average chemicals women wear A DAY is 515. Yes, you read that right. There are thousands of hazardous ingredients within our beauty products, though they are hazardous to our health they are still given the OK to be used in our products. So save your skin and stop putting toxins in your bloodstream. Just like you can be frugal and eat healthy, you can also buy affordable healthy chemical free products your skin will thank you for.
Top 4 Cosmetic Brands affordable and organic

Before I get into the different beauty brands I want to give you a small background about my skin to help you understand my journey in switching to organic. I have a combination of oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I didn't have acne much until I got into college. Having adult acne is a bit more tricky to get a handle on and a lot more embarrassing. I went to multiple different dermatologists and tried different prescribed medicines and creams. Including every brand of cleansers and spot treatments at the drugstore, you can think of. Not only were these products changing the texture and feel of my skin they were adding new problems on top of the adult acne. So about 2-3 years ago I started to research into organic beauty brands. Over the years I have done more damage than good with chemical filled products. Deep acne scars, cystic acne, color pigment problems to name a few and since switching to organic beauty products I'm finally regaining back young youthful skin. Below is a list of top cosmetic brands that I use/tried personally. Don't worry about replacing everything at once, that can get expensive quick. Start with a couple products you use on a daily basis and grow from there. Trust me you will not look back once you switch organic.

Top 4 Affordable Organic Cosmetic Brands  

Avalon Organics 

Affordable cosmetic avalon organicsAvalon Organics is great for skincare, bath and body, and my personal favorite shampoos! They are USDA certified organic, vegan and cruelty-free. For me, shampoo was a top priority since it's something I use every day. Aluminum, Synthetic fragrances, and sodium lauryl sulfate are just a few of the cancer-causing, hormone altering hazardous chemicals in popularly advertised shampoos. Avalon Organics offers a variety of shampoos whether you are trying to thicken or volumize. They don't strip your hair from the natural oil it produces and more importantly, their products are AFFORDABLE! I typically use the website to purchase my products. They are always running a sale offering killer deals and has the latest releases from the brand.

Nourish Organics

Nourish Organics is a great drugstore buy. They have affordable and organic products. It's a great brand to test and see what kind of ingredients works best with your skin. This product is available at top store name brands like target and Walmart. Nourish Organics is USDA certified with a commitment 95-100% organic ingredients in their products. I have tried many of their lotions. Great smells and hydrating.
affordable beauty nourish organic

Physicians Formula

affordable physicians formula organic cosmetic

Physicians Formula is another great drugstore buy. I live in a small town so I normally have to purchase my products online. Physicians Formula is also a great brand to use if you are just starting out. With their affordable prices, it gives you the ability to try different makeup items to see what really works for your skin.

100 Percent Pure

100 percent pure organic cosmetics

I can not talk about organic brands without mentioning 100 Percent Pure. This brand is a bit on the high end of cost, but you receive such high-quality products, literally health food for your skin! I kid you not I always feel like I'm at a high-end spa right at my house when I use any of their products. They have fruit dried makeup, skincare, body, hair, and baby products. Made with the highest quality of ingredients and completely free from harmful toxins. Currently, my skincare and makeup are mostly made up of products from this brand. Not only are their products health food for your skin, but the smells are so refreshing and energizing. This is one place I do buy from their actual site because they have a reward system called Purist Perks. For every $1 you spend you receive 1 point. Once you receive 100 points you will be able to pick a product from their list for free. I love this because I am able to try products for free I might be on the fence about. Also, they are all the time offering a free gift with your purchase if you spend a certain amount.


You no longer can make excuses about going organic on your beauty brands. The popularity is growing, the choices to choose from greater and the prices affordable. Start small, change a couple products at a time and before you know it you will see a change yourself and you won't even remember your life before going organic!

Zyndio Review | Is ZynTravel Legit Or A Scam?

No comments

Zyndio Review

This will be a  review of  Zyndio, also know as ZynTravel. ZynTravel is a travel based MLM or Multi-Level-Marketing company. Most likely you came here via google search after someone came to you either online or in person and tried to get you to become a Zyndio member? If so give yourself a pat on the back for being wise enough for realizing someone could be trying to scam you. But the question remains is Zyndio legit? Read Living Cheapy's complete review of this company and decide for yourself.

 Is ZynTravel Legit Or A Scam

What Is Zyndio?  

Zyndio sells memberships to a discounted access to travel products. After becoming a member you can also sell the same membership to your family, friends, or strangers online for a commission.  Some people may join because they want to book tours at a discount. But of course, as with any other MLM company, the real reason most everyone joins is due to the cut of the commission. 

Is Zyndio Legit Or A Scam?

Zyndio Review
Since Zyndio actually does give travel related discounts to its members as they state, they are legit and not a scam. But don't run out and buy that membership just let! Just because this company is not a scam does not mean you should take seriously everything Zyndio or their members say.  Although what they say may be true. They can be very misleading at the same time. Misleading is the bread and butter of MLM companies. For the most part, these companies can't outright lie about their products without facing legal problems. So MLM companies instead have become masters at misleading customers into thinking they are offering a much better product than what's presented. Seriously, it's absolutely amazing how wonderful a great salesman can make a box of rocks sound. But hey if you're that salesman maybe MLM companies are for you. 

Who's behind

Zyndio's Anthony Powell
The man that has long been suspected of being behind this company is Anthony Powell. A man that has long and deep ties to other MLM companies that have extremely bad reputations. These companies include Vemma and HerbalLife both of which defaulted and left its members hanging.  

What Are Zyndio Travel Discounts 

Zyndio offers discounts on Flights, Hotels, Cruises, and Rental Cars. These discounts come to via third-party booking engines that they give you access to.  The following is a breakdown of their travel benefits. 

Zyndio Hotels
They offer up to 85% discount on over 400,000 hotels around the globe. So even if you're an international traveler Zyndio can still save you money.  


Zyndio Trips or Vacations

They offer a premier discounts to give you a discount on your dream trips or romantic getaways. 

Zyndio Timeshares

They offer members access timeshares worldwide without any blackout dates or booking limitations.

Zyndio Airlines

Zyndio has the largest airline consolidator.  Which gives you access 24/7  to airline tickets from 900 plus airlines worldwide

Zyndio Cruises

They provide their members with access to 50 plus cruise lines with hundreds of itineraries worldwide.   

Zyndio Rental Cars

They work with all major car rental companies across the world. But their preferred partners are Avis and Budget.  

Zyndio Concierge

They boast about having provided an experienced service and convenient professional travel concierge. 

ZynTravel Membership Cost

Cost of Zyndio membership
Firstly I would like to mention that Zynido has done away with their Silver membership. The Silver was their cheapest, and in my opinion, their most reasonable membership. They have replaced it with by far their most expensive membership called the Black Diamond

The Zyndio Black Diamond Membership will cost you an initial signup fee of  $999.99  Plus a $29 setup fee as well as a $19 a month free. 

Features included in the Black Diamond membership are the following:
Customer Travel Commission of 25%
Customer Referral Program
Customer Cycle Bonus
Customer Travel Bonus
Customer Bonus Pool
Customer Matching Bonus
Customer Lifestyle Bonus
Premium Travel Packages

The Zyndio Platuim Membership will cost you an initial signup fee of  $499.99  Plus a $29 setup fee as well as a $19 a month free. 

Features included in the Black Diamond membership are the following:
Customer Travel Commission of 25%
Customer Referral Program
Customer Cycle Bonus
Customer Travel Bonus
Customer Bonus Pool
Customer Matching Bonus

The Zyndio Gold Membership will cost you an initial signup fee of  $199.99  Plus a $29 setup fee as well as a $19 a month free. 

Features included in the Black Diamond membership are the following:
Customer Travel Commission of 25%
Customer Referral Program
Customer Cycle Bonus
Customer Travel Bonus
Customer Bonus Pool

Crazy expensive right?! What is even crazier is the fact that these already extreme prices may very likely become even higher. Just a few years ago you could get the Silver membership for $69.75 with just a $12.99 setup fee. On top of that, the commissions have gone way down! The Silver membership even at the $69.98 price tag.gave you 25% commission. The Gold gave you 50% and now only 25%. The Platinum gave you 100% and now just gives you 25%. Given that Zyndio had complaints left and right about not offering a product worth the price of the memberships at the old price range. I can not imagine what they were thinking when they decided to raise the prices even higher while at the same time dropping the benefits down. 

Verdict Legit (Technically) 

Zyndio is not a Scam in the technical sense of the term. This company is very much a legit company that offers legit savings on travel expenses. BUT, here's the thing with all the fees associated with membership with this company you are going to have to be a person who does ALOT of traveling to make the investment worth wild solely from the discount standpoint. For most of us, we are going to need the capabilities to sell that box of rocks we talked about earlier. Otherwise, we will likely have wasted our money on our Zyndio membership. As for myself that counts me out. How about you?

MoneyCroc Review | Is A Scam Or Legit?

No comments

MoneyCroc Review

This will be a  review of  MoneyCroc, a site that claims to give away FREE Money for playing a matching game. If you do a google search for "FREE MONEY" you will find MoneyCroc at the top of the first page. I was kind of impressed by this so I had to check this site out and find out if it was legit or just another scam. Not only because like anyone else I like free money, but to find out how this site is ranking so high for such a competitive keyword.  I mean come on, you click a button and if the two images match you will be paid $50.00 via PayPal. This has to be a scam right? Well maybe not, check out the rest of our review to find out.

What Is MoneyCroc?  |  A Trick To Help You Win

MoneyCroc is an impressive designed lottery style matching game that actually pays users if they win. They can do this because each time you click "Try Again"  for another chance to win a new set of ads load. 
moneycroc review

This is because what you are doing when you press the button is refreshing the page. You don't even need to click "Try Again" if you do not want to. A trick to make the game easier to play is just pressing ENTER or SPACE  on your keyboard to give you the same results as clicking "Try Again". Don't worry about breaking any rules by doing so, MoneyCroc advises users to play the game this way themselves. You are limited to playing the game 50 times each day. Still, that is 50 sets of ads from one user each day! Hats off the people behind for being very creative. 

IS MoneyCroc A Scam?

moneycroc scam?

Although I have never won any money from myself, it appears this site a legit site that really pays people. Now with that said it is unclear if this site actually gives away half their earnings from ads away as they claim.  How would anyone really know right? We do know they do in fact give away money and since the game is FREE to play, no one is actually being scammed by MoneyCroc. Now some would say their users are wasting their time, but that is another topic. 

How Does MoneyCroc Work?
moneycroc odds

Users of have 50 tries each day to become a winner of either $5.00, $10.00 or $50.00 each day. You have to manually choice $5 or  $10 dollars since its automatically set for $50 by default. The advantage of playing for $10.00 is you will have 5 times the odds of a chance of winning than $50.00. When playing for $5 your MoneyCroc odds are 10 times more. For each try, you will have 2 random images generated. Each image will have a combination of either One letter and One number or Two letters and Two Numbers. If for example, you are playing for $5 and both images are AF you have won the amount you selected to play for. Instead of clicking "Try Again", you will select the "I Won $5.00"  to claim your MoneyCroc winnings. You will then enter in your PayPal information to receive your payment. 

 Does Anyone Know Of Any MoneyCroc Winners

moneycroc winners

Yes, they have paid many people, although I am not one of them. With that said I really haven't played it consistently over a long period of time. They reason being is I really do not have much down time to really play with. I did notice while doing research on whenever someone would speak negatively about this site multiple former winners would come to this sites defense in the comments. Some the reviews I read even were obviously putting MoneyCroc down and calling it a scam to push their affiliate program they were associated with. Don't know about you but to me that kind of makes them Scammy right? 

Verdict Legit

MoneyCroc is a very creative idea and appears to be legit.  Even with the odds of being a winner of anything from this site being SUPER LOW. It's hard not to hit ENTER one more time for another chance to win. With that said my gut feeling is they do not actually give away half their ad earnings away. I have played this game several times with no luck, not that I really expected to win.  I imagine if you used all of your 50 tries each day for a few weeks you may win once for $5.00 or $10.00. 
I dought they give away the $50.00 very often, so probably wouldn't even try for that mark. Overall if you really want to be productive with your time, you can do much better than MoneyCroc. On the flip side say you are working in an office with access to a computer. You have plenty of down time to play with that you do not want to spend it doing anything serious. MoneyCroc may be your ticket to passing some time and occasionally get a paid a little for your trouble. Alternative 

 If you are looking for a site that is exactly like you will be hard pressed to find one. Not saying none exist I just do not know of any personally. Now you can find many sites that will actually pay you money for doing simple tasks like what you do on MoneyCroc. Such as Earnhoney, DollarTracks, and GrindaBuck. These sites will pay you to click on links, signups, watch videos, do surveys etc. Again like with you aren't likely to make a lot for your time invested. Although I do know a few many to claim to make a living from a combination of many sites like I mentioned above. For most of us, these sites are just productive fun things to do during your downtime while getting rewarded for it. 

Living Cheaply would love to hear about your experience with MoneyCroc in the comments below. Have you used this site in the past? Did you feel like is legit? Please let us know, we would love to hear feedback on this review.
