(DEAD) Make up to $240 Shopping

Update: it looks like Great Bridge Group is no longer in business…

Shopping Cart Money

Make up to $240 Each Year Shopping

I know it sounds too good to be true.  Who would pay me $240 to shop?  Did I win some kind of lottery?  No.  I didn’t win anything.  Let me explain.

As we all know, there are companies out there who collect market data from consumers (through focus groups and online surveys) and sell that information to other companies.

In steps Great Bridge Group.  They analyse your shopping data, along with the shopping data of millions of other people, to determine where you shop, when you shop, how often you shop, and how much you spend.  They aggregate (aka filter/sort) your data and turn the numbers into meaningful information.

So how do you make $240?  Great question.  Your shopping history is their data and they will pay for your data, up to $60 each quarter, or $240 each year.  Here is how Great Bridge Group works:

After you confirm your email address, you can create your account and start making money.  The image below shows that I joined June 29 and my next payout date is 3 months later on September 28.  I have 0 registered cards and a current data payout of $0.00.  Your payout date will be exactly 3 months from when you join Great Bridge Group.



Step 3: Add your first credit cards to your Great Bridge Group account.  The website is 256-bit SSL encrypted to keep your data safe and secure – you can read their privacy policy.

Great Bridge puts your privacy first, period.
Your personal information is never for sale. We only use anonymous, aggregated information to identify broad trends in shopping behavior. Our partners are not marketers and we will never let them target you with advertising, try to sell you anything, show you ads or give you coupons. Additionally, we do not use, sell, or store your personally identifiable information. Your name, address, social security number and bank account numbers are not required to join Great Bridge.

To add a credit card to your account, select your bank from the list below.

Add Credit Card

Enter your log in information to access your credit card account.

Add Chase Card

Depending on how many credit cards you have and the amount of transactions you made, the process may take a few minutes.

Connecting to Chase

Congratulations, the process was successful.

New Card Added

After you add your first card, you can see how much your data was worth.  After adding my first card, my data was worth $11.62.



Step 4: Start adding the rest of your credit cards.  After adding my 5th card, my data payout went up to $14.02.


After adding my 6th card, my data payout went up to $14.95.


After adding my 11th card, my data payout went to $20.51.


Even after you stop adding cards, your balance will continue to rise as you keep making charges on your credit cards.  As you can see, my 11 cards stayed the same, but my balance went up to $22.17.

Great Bridge Current Balance


Step 5: Which transactions are worth the most? Large transactions pay the most.  You get paid 1/10th of 1% on all transactions.  Which is why a $413.90 purchase at Staples earned me 41 cents and a $633.26 purchase at Office Depot earned me 63 cents.


Purchases larger than $1,000 will only earn $1.00, like my purchase at my auto mechanic.

Great Bridge Large Purchase

On the contrary, small purchases below $5.00 will not earn you anything.  The reason is 1/10th of 1% of $5.00 is $0.005 or half a penny.  Great bridge rounds to the penny on every payout.

    I didn’t know this. I signed up and got $20 credit already. I’ll have to keep my purchases to $1k. Perhaps someone here might know the answer to these. Does sears/kmart allow the purchase of prepaid visa with their store gift cards? I’ve read that kmart didn’t. Any experience with this?
    Also, will 7-11 allow purchase of prepaid visa cards with their own store gift card?

      Generally, you cannot use store gift cards to buy other gift cards, but you might be able to find a store/cashier who will let you use them.

      Over one year yes. You would have to spend $60,000 per quarter. Which comes down to $20,000 per month. Seems like a lot, but you can link multiple credit card accounts together.
