A HUGE library of resources (books, journals, articles, etc.) on almost any historical topic you can think of. Citation information included for all, downloadable copies available for most, and the ability to make an account and save your favorites. Bonus, if you are a college student, you can likely log in using your school's website login that you use, since they likely have a subscription to this site, which will make even more content available!

I see so many reviews here, and elsewhere, about how this site doesn't give them enough samples, or doesn't give them to them often enough. Jeez people, they're FREE samples, be grateful you get any and don't sound spoiled! I've been with this site for about 2 years and have received 3 sample boxes. They had a fun mix of products, and typically are geared toward me based on survey answers (one was a school related one, and I am a college junior, so that was fun!). Just check regularly for any new Virtual VoxBox (no physical sample, but often coupons and fun activities), and keep up with the survey questions. Be patient, and you'll get one eventually, and when you do I guarantee it'll be great! Usually 5-8 products, some VERY expensive normally like a Covergirl foundation I once received, and a good amount of time to sample and review before the event expires.

I love their clothes, so I typically just shop in a physical store now. When I ordered online in the past, the shipping was sometimes more than the total of my order, which is absurd. Especially when I wanted to buy a simple plain skirt (priced at $4) for Halloween, and then the shipping was $7, uh no! Shipping can take a weirdly long time, I ordered one small pair of earrings for my mom once, and it took almost 3 1/2 weeks!

Has a wide variety of topics and categories of trivia. Different types of quizzes (photos, videos, traditional, music, etc.). It's extra fun to play with someone, me and my boyfriend often sit on our laptops and take the same quiz and see who can finish first or do better! Also fun for making your own quizzes and using to study, if that applies to you.

This site has SO MANY free ebooks, even those that are extremely popular, or new. This site does follow a DMCA policy and removes any books that the author asks to remove. However, the selection is still amazing, and its rare that I can't find a book I'm looking for. Absolutely check this out if you love books, especially free ones. Also, when I say mostly legal, I mean that yes, sometimes books do slip through the cracks and aren't properly removed, but overall the site does its best to remove all books that are reported or asked to be taken down.

This site helps manage, catalog, and rate books. You can organize them by ones you have read, want to read, own, and so on. They also offer giveaways of books not yet released that authors will give for free in addition for an honest rating (which isn't required just encouraged). TRY THE GIVEAWAYS. So far, in the past year i have won almost 40 books (want proof, I would be happy to show you my many emails and exploding bookshelf haha!). To those saying this site only reviews top books and publishers, that is false. The site itself reviews nothing, its the users that review. And thanks to programs like the new book giveaways, obscure books are getting ratings! I also love that authors themselves use this site and often interact with readers!

I love crowdtap. I love being able to share my input on brands and products, and even at times help create new ones. Each month you get multiple Quickhits which are basically just multiple choice questions about brands and products. Each brand has their own page, and with each Quickhit you answer you get 20 points on whatever brand page you answered it on. At the end of the month you are entered into gift card drawings for each group. (I've only not won one once, other than that I've won MANY 5 dollar Amazon gift cards). In addition based on some of your answers you may be offered a chance to sample, normally, a full size product. I just got a fill size bag of a new Splenda product in the mail. Previously I've gotten food, makeup, cat food, etc. Really a fun site.

Sure the prices are great on this site, but they're great because the items sold are very poorly made and are not durable. Clothing is made of very poor material, like what a cheap Halloween costume would be made of. Electronics are sure to break quickly. Not to mention they attempt to sell items claiming they are brand names when in fact you will receive a knock off product. Only reason they got above 2 stars is because so far I have received every item I have bought with no issues, they weren't quality items, but I received the, and they were inexpensive none the less.

This site has all kinds of mini tasks to earn money; data entry, transcribing, surveys, paragraph/article writing, editing, etc. IT IS NOT A SCAM, IT IS RUN BY AMAZON. You have the option to get paid to your amazon gift card balance, or to amazon payments where you can then transfer to a bank account. I REPEAT IT IS RUN BY AMAZON IT IS NOT A SCAM. Some just can't use this site depending on their location. I've been using for about 4 years and have made almost 400 dollars so far.

Walmart.com is great if you're sending the item directly to your home. If you're sending it to a store to be picked up, not so great. My mom ordered me a box spring to be sent to the Walmart in my college's town, and properly added me as someone who is allowed to pick it up, even got a confirmation email upon doing so. Got down there (after a 4 hour drive) and was told I was not allowed to pick it up and wasn't in their system as an acceptable pick up. I had to wait quite a while to speak to a manager and eventually get it okay'ed. They also told me in store that they could hold an item for up to a month, then got an email that my item would be returned to the shipping facility if I didn't get it 5 days after ordering, so I had to drive down unplanned before the school year even started just to get it.

I use this site frequently and check in almost every day for new surveys. If you're patient and don't mind disqualifying for some surveys, it will pay off in the end. Once you hit 100 points (minimum) you can cash out starting at 10 bucks on PayPal. The payments are instant and the money is in your account and usable within minutes. I've been paid every single time, and the one time I had a problem, they fixed it the same day.

I've noticed alot of people saying they are mad they don't get them every month, but honestly, I free samples, be lucky youre getting anything AT ALL for free regardless of how frequent. I have been an active member for a few years and have probably gotten about 6 boxes with about 5-6 samples inside. If you don't mind being patient and accepting that you wont get their LIMITED AMOUNT samples each month (I mean honestly they have a lot of users and clearly not enough for everyone to get some every single month) then you will love this site.
