earnhoney.com truly embodies the term “passive income”. Like many other reward sites earnhoney offers you the ability to complete offers, attempt surveys, play games, etc… in exchange for doing this they pay you in their virtual currency called Honey Dollars. Honey Dollars can then be converted for Amazon Gift Cards or deposited into a verified PayPal account. (The exchange rate is 100 HD = $1.00)
That being said, I don’t consider any of the aforementioned activities to be passive.
Where earnhoney shines is by letting you “watch” videos and in so doing earn Honey Dollars. And by “watch” I mean turn it on and forget about it.
There are numerous video streams available, some of which promise 15 HD per hour. While I wasn’t ever able to reach that level after quite a bit of trial and error I was able to get an OLD laptop earning 11 HD per hour. I don’t doubt that with a reasonably up to date machine that 15 HD per hour threshold might be reached.
Regardless, I set the laptop up in what I thought was the optimal configuration and decided to let it run for 5 days.
Over that 5 day period we lost internet connectivity twice (router reset) and checking the logs it looks as if the videos weren’t being played for about 12 hours. I checked the power draw on the laptop on day 3 and it was pulling 32 Watts which means over the course of the trial it used ~60 cents worth of electricity while earning $10.72 netting just over $10 while requiring about 10 minutes worth of maintenance.
Obviously I’m not sure if this 5 day stretch was an anomaly but it was very promising. I’m hopeful that at the end of the month by “watching” videos on earnhoney I will have earned $60 nearly entirely passively.
You’re currently limited to one device per account (I’d be willing to bet it’s one device per IP) however in the near future they will have an android app available (it’s currently in late beta). At that point you’ll be able to run earnhoney on two different devices which should equate to an earnings bump, but that’s yet to be seen.
I tested the program on an Ipad 2 and while the videos would play the ads would not and as such no HD were earned. I also tried earning with a Raspberry Pi 2 using Raspbian and Debian, but both were plagued by crashes. Maybe a Pi 3 could handle it. My laptop is a single core Celeron 2.3GHz with 3GB of Ram.
