It really does depend on how consistent you are and how able you are to do many tasks, plus if you qualify for a good number of surveys. I have come close to almost every month but have to admit that now with the search reward and the paid to shop, it may be a little easier to get there on a more regular basis. If I miss one month, I just let it accumulate until the next month as that is when I would be getting paid on a fresh $25 goal anyways. It has been frustrating to get close and not make it, but I am still relatively new so I am learning and experimenting on how to maximize my earnings. Keep reading the forums and watch for all the ways to add a little here and a little there. The 30 posts per month for $3. Post a screen shot of your first payment for another $1, try to get referrals if you have a website or blog, which I still have not done, do the daily email and paid to click, check out the contests for the Tues/Weds and Sat/Sun mini contests. Keeping up with all of these and successfully completing some surveys will get you there sooner than you might think. If you do any offers with a credit card required it will pay you higher, many advise that you should only do ones that you are truly interested in as most of them have recurring monthly charges, and if you don't want them any longer then you have to pay close attention to the time frame to cancel the offer before you keep getting billed. Hope these suggestions are helpful and good luck to you.
