Cash Duck is closing!

It's a sad sad day indeed. I woke up to find the following email from Kira, Cash Duck creator and owner:

(partial email)

" Unfortunately, I have a sad announcement to make. As of the end of this month, CashDuck will be closing.

This is a decision that I did not want to make, and even two weeks ago said that I didn't want to close. But the way things have been going, I feel like if CashDuck continues to run that things are unlikely to improve. Since the implementation of the new payout rules, traffic has really dwindled. So far this month all of the users of CashDuck combined have not earned what they did in an average DAY of April or May. I really wanted to give the shopping section some time, but I am losing money and new obstacles are thrown up every day.

I have had such a wonderful experience running CashDuck and it has changed me as a person. I've learned a LOT, and in fact partially due to my experience with CashDuck I will be applying for an MBA program. I am excited about potentially exploring other business ideas in the future. I know though that no business will last forever, and it is best now to end on a good note, instead of waiting until there is nothing left.

Thank you everyone for your support and encouragement. I have met many wonderful people and I consider myself enriched by you all.


Ugh!!! Whhhyyyyyyyyy?!!

My main extra money source is shutting down. I have been with Cash Duck since April and I have made a total of $412.04. Now I really gotta get in hustlette mode and find a replacement.

PineCone is my favorite. I'm also trying out Panda Research.
