How much do you think you could make in MM if you spend a lot of time submitting deals, commenting, etc - like some of the people with higher reps on the site do?

it really just depends. my rep score signifies that i do a lot..but i really don't post much, so for me..i don't really make any dent at all. my rep score is where it is because in the past, i used to very heavily involved, but as time went on, i became more busy with life..and with that..i wasn't able to invest as much time into the site as i used to..but that was before the MM idea came about.

I don't think that's polite to ask.

I'm not asking for their check stubs geez... I am pretty much just wondering how much someone could make if they put a lot of time into it. It is like asking how much teachers make.............

I wonld personallly not depend on the money I make from deals plus for everyday bills. That being said a little extra money now and again is nice to get for something extra or to drop into savings for something really special.

Lol I guess that's better.
I agree with skaro964 on this. When the MM program first began, it took me 2-3 months to accumulate over $50 to get paid. :P Some things changed now and I'm finding I spent a lot more time on dealspl.us now that I'm on winter break so maybe it'll take me less time. It's just nice to have a little extra money, especially being a broke college student. :)
I won't deny wondering how much certain dealspl.us contributors make though. I'd like to think they can live on their MM "salary" hahaha

I think it's pretty much a secret how much everyone makes, especially the big earners

Like Arsiel, I got to $50 fairly quickly back when MM first came out, but haven't had time to really work at it for most of the last year. Competition for the front page deals skyrocketed after a few of the big hitters realized they could make a tidy sum. I'd love to know how much they rake in, but I also wouldn't have a problem knowing it's a lot. They must have a killer system or spend A LOT more time at it than I ever have. I'm sure they earn it, there's no free lunches.

Regardless, I think it's a great program and an awesome way to get this site bumped up in the rankings of deal-sites on the web. I may be biased though as I've always liked this site better than the alternatives and have been an off-and-on active member here for years (long before the MM program).

The least I have ever made was $9 (that was my first month) the most I have ever made was $57. I have had pretty much anything in between depending on how much time I had online.

if you simply max out your comments every day that .30*10*30, which comes out to 90 dollars. make sure your actually looking at the deals and adding value, but if you have time its not hard to get 10 comments a day. i certainly don't but I'm sure its possible.

there's also the possibility of earning money through outside links like if you have a lot of friend on Facebook or twitter.

If you had your own web site and it was pretty popular you might be able to make a lot of money off the sharing premium, but it takes 1000 hits to your deal to make $3.00 so you need to get a lot of plusses and get to the HOT page for that to happen. Any money made here is appreciated and it just depends on how much time and energy you want to put into it! If you write up a nice PAGE article you get $5.00 off the bat, so all you writers out there get busy and you could make a lot of dough.

@synpin04, we Americans are so abashed about discussing money! Lighten up, people. I don't mind breaking the mold, but I haven't earned a check yet lol. :)
